This arlds signi- ! ricance lo U. S. Steel's report tomorrow. And Ihc "Big Steel" report also should give an indication of how much costs have risen in a year. It is on these vising costs that the industry could set a price hike under the Capehart formula. The Capchart amendment to the price controls law permits companies to raise prices by takinc the highest price for tlicir product in the first half of 1950 and adding to it the ri.'.c in operation costs from then until last July 20. Within that period--in December, 191)0- -sleel prices were boosted hy an average of $0.60 a ton. Price controllers arc now reported to aproo with industry officials t h a t 'operation costs l.ave risen enough to justify another price hilce under the Capchart amendment. Industry and Washington, however, may not sec eye to eye on just liow much is justified. Nine-months earnings (statements of the steel companies, issued three months ago, si owed net profits after taxes considerably below the similar pcriou in 1950. Sales, on the other hand, had climbed. The result was that the ratio of net profits to sales was considerably down, lower in fact than anytime since 194G.

They also want wage increases tied lo rising productivity, contending they arc turning out more steel per man hour now. And they seek a guaranteed a n n u a l '.var'.e. Productivity lias been rising, largely due, the companies say. lo the new steel mills being put into operation with advanced operating techniques, and to improvements in existing plants. The steel industry ii spending about five billion dollars on ths expansion program The f n a l word in the wage-price demands will doubtless lie with Washington. The steel industry contends lhat without a price hike it cannot consider the wage demands. And the union s ys that it will strike at the end of next month if wages are not raised. The hearings this week should go a long way toward indicating what .formula of raising wages and prices Washington will hit upon to meet 'he demands of both sides and avert a strike.

The policeman, AdalbcrU Villa Lamadrid, -10, was shot five times during n chase after a two-gun assailant. He had reprimanded the man for annoying women at a bus station.

Pulaski Chancellor Frank II. Podge yesterday ruled three Little Rock loai. companies made excessive charges under act 20,1 of 1051 on loans. He set aside the loans and mortgages involved. Attorneys for the defendants-Seaboard Finance Company, Qua- oaw Finance Company, and Family Finance Company--said they would appeal the decision to the Arkansas Supreme Covirt. which has not yet ruled on legality of act 203. A similar case from - J e f f - erson County is pending before the court. Judge Dodge held that service charges made by the firms were excessive; that l i f e insurance requirements were unwarranted and that such charges were designed to evade the i n per cent m a x i m u m interest permitted under the usury law. One of t h e cases, that of "Richard and Alma Fac Brodcrson against Seaboard, involved a promissory note for $1,224 payable in 18 months. To obtain the loan, the Brodcrsons delivered a chattel mortgage on household goods and a car. Extra charges included .interest nf $91.BO; service charge $40.96; filing fee, $1.25; automobile transfer, SI. and a $30.72 premium on a life insurance policy. An insurance premium of $59 also was required on the car, leaving a net balance of $993.27 received by the Brodcrsons. !; Judge Dodge ruled that the service charge "was not reasonably relative to service rendered the borrower," and that "the requirement that the p l a i n t i f f secure life insurance in addition to securing insurance on the ncr- ;onal properly to secure the loan was unreasonable and unwarranted." Furthermore, Judge Dodge said, interest charged on the loan is in excess of the 10 per cent on the amount of the loan, less interest, when figured on the partial payment plan ns required by Jaw.
