Policeman Strangles Woman Shoots Himself Is Near Death Washington (UP) Sen Robert A Taft (R Ohio) today marshalled formidable forces to battle a new Administration backed bill which would revive OPA in a modified form for one year OPA foes predicted the new price fight in the Senate would be more bitter than the last It will begin as soon as the bill is called up for Senate either today or Monday Taft and his bloc again will try to end price controls on meat poultry and dairy products lie took charge of the attack on the new bill immediately after the measure was approved 12 to 5 last night by the Senate Banking Committee Taft had been work ing with the committee all week to reach an acceptable compro mise but when he was out voted in the committee show down he decided to carry the Issues to the Senate floor He was backed by a goodly num ber of Kcpublienns and promised a crashing assault against pro OPA forces led by Senate Demo cratic Lender Alben Barkley (Ky) who predicted eventual pas sage of the bill in its present form Provisions of Bill The measure written in com mittee to meet President objections to the vetoed exten sion bill would: 1 Cancel rent increases made by landlords since the old price law expired Sunday Landlords however would not be required to refund money already collected as a result of the temporary rent boosts 2 Allow producers their 1940 prices plus any increased produc tion costs since then if the OPA deems the higher prices necessary to boost production This Barkley sponsored plan approved by 9 to 8 by the committee knocks out Taft's amendment which drew the bitterest criticism from Mr Tru man in his OPA veto message Taft would have set Oct 1 15 1941 as the base price period and would have made price allowances for increased production costs without specific rulings on wheth er they were necessary to increase output 3 Allow distributors whole salers and retailers their June 29 1916 mark ups in place of Jan 1 1946 mark ups proposed by Senate Republican Whip Kenneth Wherry Neb This plan which would not require any cost ab sorptions after June 29 was ap proved 10 to 7 It was sponsored by Barkley In most other respects the bill is similar to the old OPA law It retains price controls on meat poultry and dairy products and that was expected to precipitate the bitterest part of the Senate fight on the bill Even the anti OPA bloc seemed generally inclined to support re vival of rent controls Barkley while predicting that the measure would pass the Senate and be approved by Mr Truman conceded a fierce battle is almost inevitable over the decontrol fea tures Taft protested that the bill as now written would give OPA same discretionary that it had under the old law Husband Slain Woman Is Held Wilkes Wreck atal to Two
