», ^.M. i lyaJja Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor - --- Alex. H. Washburn— — Truman's OPA Veto Vote-Catching ,* vs. Price of Bread Your correspondent had no (don whatever Hint President Truimm would veto the OPA extension bill when, writing Saturday morning, \Vr; culled it '"an attempt to make a political compromise on '.conomic tacts." But Mr. Trumn did veto the bill, declaring in his veto message — after we had gone to press Saturday — that the patched-up legislation was "impossible" and "a sure formula for inflation." The president is getting in the habit of being heroic and right after the game is lost. The administration bungled the labor and management issue until railroad labor ,;VHS tempted to strike — and Mr. nii had to step in with a crack- >wn threat. Politics has been played with the crucial issue of postwar industrial production until OPA's very foundation was cut out from under it — and, once again, Mr. Truman speaks out boldly for all or nothing at all. In the instance of OPA I didn't expect the veto action. I expected, rather, that Mr. Truman would accept the bill with reluctance, firing another critical blast at the con, Tress. But I concede now that so ,f\r as political strategy is concerned the veto was probably wisest. Mr. Truman has checked the issue back to the people. He lias said in effect: The congress has kll'id OPA — bettor to veto the bill and look the facts square in the teeth. On this individual performance the president, being one, looks better than the congress, being many — for where there arc many there usually is compromise, even Hope .., \ Star WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Mostly cloudy with thundershowers and not so warm this afternoon.

Joe Dildy, Hope public recreation director, asks all contestants to meet in front of First Baptist church at 9:30 o'clock Thursday morning, where a parade will form, to march through the business section and out to Fair park.

Behind il is a long record of misuse of arbitrary executive power leading up to threatened economic disaster. The congress can very well say: If government economic stabilization policies have failed the blame is upon Ihc executive department— it was thai department, not the congress, which was charged with getting peacetime industry back into production, and failed. i-\ It seems Io me either Mr. Truman f*.r his advisers under-estimated the job of restoring America's profit-based private industry, and took lime oul Io play polilics along the way. In fairness to the president it should be pointed oul lhat history will make him his predecessor's whipping-boy. Mr. Truman fell heir to another man's problems.

"What we really are seeking," £1; said, "is an equality of dissalis- Xa'clion." Thus it seems that the effort, firm resolution, tentative concession, hot words and cold logic expended in four meetings of the foreign ministers have not even brought them to a point where they can agree to disagree. This is discouraging news for the whole world. But it is probably to be expected in what is surely one of the most perilous and un- prediclable periods of peace in history. And at Ihc moment there ^cms no solution except Io continue Iho search of which M. Bid- itult spoke. "Equality of dissalisfaclion" is easier Io comprehend generally than to explain precisely. But il must mean a sort of negative compromise in which opposing objections can be brought near enough to a state of balance to permit -a step toward active, positive co-opcr- alion.

Sol- ship Price Rise Looms as OPA Goes Out By United Press The American people awoke today to a more expensive way of life. Reports from across the nation indicated that a good percentage of rents, food, clothing and other necessities lost little time soaring after expiration of the price control bill at midnight last night. _ However, many trade associations of landlords, food merchants and other retailers, fearful of hysterical price boosting and resultant public wrath, called on members to hold the present price line;. Or at least, to limit increases "within reason." And in many cases, the consumers tnemsclvcs began mobilizing their resources to light for reinstatement of price control, on a federal or stale basis. Many industry leaders foresaw an unpreccentcd era of prosperity as business, freed for the :iirsl time in four years of 'federal controls, relied on free competition and the law of supply and demand, to adjust prices. Other national spokesmen anticipated no immediate change pending possible congressional action to revive price ceilings, or forecast a temporary, general rise, subsiding somewhat within a particularly from Off Bikini Atoll, July 1—(UP) — Vice Admiral W .H.

Still others, the ranks of labor, predicted nothing but ruinous inflation with the lifting of controls. Industi'y spokesmen predicted that the 'cost of meat and many other food items would jump at least 10 per cent. Office of Price Administration representatives, in turn, said il would be more like 50 per cenl on mosl scarce items. Rent raises, already announced by many landlords, ranged from 10 to 25 per cent. A' tew were even higher. Many landlords felt that a 15 or 25 per cent increase was "reasonable" but admitted there would be a certain amount o f gouging by the greedy. At Indianapolis, tenanls of one apartment who had been paying $45 monthly were told the rent now was $150 a month, effective j today. Only in New York were tenants safe from rent increases.

Rayburn and Barkley, together with Senator McKellar (D-Tenn), president pro tempore of the Senate and House Democratic Leader McCormack (Mass) devoted their usual Monday morning conference with Mr. Truman to the situation.
