HOPE STAR, HOPE. ARKANSAS I Decontrol, ;OPARush Assignments ' Washington, Aug. 19 — (ff) — OPA today authorized a retail price in•crease of approximately six percent for household mechanical refrigerators. On a standard box, OPA announced the increase will be from $10 to $12. Consumers will pay the higher -^prices, OPA said, as soon as deal- .crs receive refrigerators ticketed -with the new ceilings. The increase for refrigerators follows-price hikes of from three to 12 percent on radios, washing ma- tChities, vacuum cleaners and a 'long list of other household items. OPA said the increase for re- irigerators results in part from a flew price hike of 3.5 percent granted to manufacturers today, and in part from requirements new price control law. The agency said deals had bctn required to absorb 2.5 percent of a previous increase granted . to •manufacturers. Under the new law, this cost absorption is outlawed. /Washington, Aug.' 19 — </Pr— Two •government agencies — OPA and ithe price decontrol board—hustlec ttoday to complete major assign- jments in the time allotted them :by' Congress.

The spokesman said the board still had "two or three things to decide" but that members had given no indication of what these were, nor any hint of what issues may have been settled. This was typical of the secrecy which has cloaked the board's discussions since it complcled public hearings last Thursday. Fearful lest word of its decision "leak" out in advance of official announcement — and thereby allow commodity market speculators to reap a profit — the board has ordered extensive precaution against this. ..For example, preparation of copies of the announcement will be handled' right in the federal reserve building, where the board has its headquarters, instead of being sent to a government printing plant, the usual practice. The board is taking no chance, either, on word leaking out from OPA or the Agriculture Department. Officials of these agencies will be called to the federal reserve building sometime tomorrow and appraised of the board's decision, but they will not be permitted to leave the building or to telephone until the announcement has been made.

"In reality," Mr. Goodwin said, "those whose houses are sprayed twice are not getting any more than those whose are sprayed once. One spraying is sufficient to give protection from the malaria-carrying mosquito and most, other insects for the entire cummer. To give summer-long protection, how : ever, this spray must bc_ applied at the correct time— usually about Ihe middle of May— Ihe lime when insects begin to come out Spray applied at this lime lasls until fall. No house would be sprayed more.than once if we could spray them all at this time. It is impossible, however, to 'get enough men material and equipment to spray the 140,000 houses included in our program all at one time and we are forced to begin early in March in order to have all houses sprayed by Ihc lime insecls come oul. A work plan is'set up and sprayinp. begun in areas selected so that the entire county can be covered in the shortest possible time."

The council Bays the Lea Bill represents "the lowest point in our history of national labor legislation." Never before, it stalos, "has any Congress so arbitrarily arid completely struck down Ihe basic righi lo strike for plainly lawful purposes." i*i-'"While tb • Lea Bill, with gross 'unfairness, singles out for attack a single union in a single industry," the council statement goes on, "it V.^ntains principles and imposes /tstrictions which, if upheld, would crush the freedom of all American workers. . . the 'American Fedora lion of Musicians and its president, Mr. .Tamos C.

A glance back at the Lea Bil fails lo reveal Ihcse horrors.

The bill also prohibits Mr. Pe- Irillo's collection of royalties from the manufacturers of recordings ;md transcriptions used in broadcasting. But thai again is a "lawful purpose" only because Mr. Petrillo and some of his adherents sav that il is. The AFL council's contention lhai I've principles and restrictions of l1ie Lea Bill threaten the exislence of Irade unions and the liberties of American workers also is queslion- «iblc.

But the sky was still the limit on milk and butler costs. By order of the price conlrol Doard, conlrols were rcslorcd on ivcslock and on soy beans, cotton seed and Ihcir producls. Dairy producls and most grains, the board ruled, must remain free of price curbs. The decision, announced last night, had been Washington's best- kept secret since the atom bomb. Even OPA was kept in the dark. For thai reason, OPA held Ihc new controls in suspension for two days while il draws up necessary regulations. Price ceilings to become effective al 12:01 a.m. (SST) Friday will be announced tomorrow, OPA said. One OPA olficial believed ceilings on most meat cuts could be restored to levels in effect on June 30. The roll back, he noted, will be aided by rcstoralion of meal subsidies as ordered by Ihc decontrol board. Consumers meanwhile had it on authority of the three-man decontrol board that their troubles arc nol yd over. Board members Hoy L. Thompson, Daniel W. Bell and George H. Mead warned that supplies of both meat and dairy producls will con- linuc short of demand. They said meal production this year will be "somewhat smaller" lhan last car's output The board declined to clamp controls on milk because, it said, •>riccs have failed to rise "unreasonably" since ceilings were lifted. It added, however, that prices of dairy products would be kepi under close surveillance. If Ihcy gel out ol line, the board said, last "night's action will be reconsidered. The decision was nol received wilh unmitigated ,ioy by either op poncnts or proponents of price control. The CIO denounced failure to restore controls on dairy producls and basic grains. Spokesmen for the meat industry said the new meal ceilings would mean less meat and more black markets. Sen. Kenneth Wherry, R., Neb., vigorous opponent of price ceilings, said the board's a'ction in controlling meat prices and leave grain uncontrolled "will lead to chaos and confusion." The ruling, he added, "will dry up our meat supply because il is impossible lo produce meal from fat cattle under such an arrangement as this." Sen. George L. Radcliffe, D., Md., author of amendments to Ihe price acl • selling up reconlrol standards, questioned whether OPA could enforce the meat prices. The board held il could. 11 said that among other things OPA already was hiring more compliance Twenty-Three New ..

Packers Fear Return to Black Market By The Associated Press Fear ot a "black market" ii meat w;is expressed today by som meat industry spokesmen in corn monting upon revival of price ceil ings, but a CIO official termed sucl talk "strictly phoney." Industry reaction to the recon- trol board's order was mostly unfavorable, although one official, representing some eastern retailers and independent slaughterers, termed il "courageous." Some congressmen from livc- slock slai.cs deplored return of OPA ceilings on meat as inviting chaos and contusion. The American Meat Institute, spokesman for the packing industry, declared "slcrn enforcement measures" will be required "to prevent a return of all the evils of the black market, including mal- distribution, shortages and waste of valuable by-products." However. Ralph Helstein, CIO United Packinghouse Workers president, asserted "any talk of the return of the black market is strictly phoney, x x The black market never was large enough to make a noticeable dent in our resources of livestock. It. was bal- lyhoocd by the.big packers to place the blame for artificial scarcity on .little men who weren'.l there." Sino Reds Set Up Government, Dim PeaceHopes By HAROLD K. MILKS Nanking, Aug. 21 —(,'l'j— China's Communists announced today establishment of their own government of Manchuria, and said) they would not discuss participating in any coalition government of Chi:ia until all of the current fighting is stopped. Some informed quarters here said that establishmenl of such a coalition had become "the last lope" of mediators seeking a permanent peace. Communist spokesmen denied that their parly was calling for all out mobilization against Chiang Kai-Shek's forces, and said they "have no desire" to overthrow his national government — which is strictly a one-party regime now. But they added: "The first thing is to stop fighting. Then wo can talk about reorganizing the government." Some observers here said that General Marshall and Ambassador John Lcighton Stuart. havinc failed to stop the shooting first and talk politics later, now were trying to reach a political accord first. Chains, those sources said, had asked Marshall lo request a list of ministries which Communists v/oulcl demand in any coa\itLon government.

By RENE ANGERSTEIN (For Hal Boyle) Berlin, Aug. 21 — (/!'>— The bifi men on the campus of what's left of battered Berlin University arc nol known for Ihcir football or soccer prowess, but by the political parties to which they belong. Therein is the groat contrast bo- twoon Berlin University students and American collegians. The contrast between Ihe university itself and American schools is the manner in which party politics infil- Iralcs into every dusty corner of the German institution. Attendance at the thrce-quarlers damaged university brings to some 3,000 earnest German students nol only the lessons taught in books, jut those which arc learned in 'ihe rough and tumble politics of present day Germany. At Berlin University there is )To no dialling and sharp joyful fraternity life; groups ot gay girls jladcs between classes; nothing al all of the light side of scholaslic life. 'Sororities?

Tiic mosl fortunale students have their own books: other lueky ones have been able to bribe the toothless old 'librarian' who guards the blackened 50,000 volumes stacked hsphn/.ardly in a dump, low ceil- ingcd cellar; the unlucky have only their classroom lecture notes. Mare than hall the students arc freshmen, the average student is 25 years old ;all of them have 12 years of isolation from the rest of the world to make up. No part of the population ob- scrves political developments with more vigilance than these students. To them the present public emphasis on the 'new democracy' is just so much window dressing. " "In reality," said one intense student in speaking of the older generation, "they arc still the same unteachablc, one-sided, hypocritical bunch they have been for the past 2 years. "Teach us all systems, ?iot just one, and lei us judge through oui knowledge," they beg their profes sor, although with little hope.

The senator requesled the war assels administration to make the infirmary and all its equipment available to university because of the institution's tremendous increase in enrollment. McClellan, in Hot Springs on vacation, reported also that he had asked the WAA for surplus con- slruclion equipment located al Camp Chaffec. This would be used, he said, in erecting hutments for sludenl housing and in laying down sewage lines.

Its decision lasl nighl — ordering ceilings restored on meats, soybeans and collonsccd •— was just the board's opening move. Under Ihc law passed by Congress in July OPA will slay in busl ness until June 30, 1947. Since Congress set up the three man decontrol board to be boss over OPA, the board, too, will have to slay in business until June 30, 1947. The board's next lask is Ihis: To decide whether to place ceilings on eggs, poultry, tobacco and petroleum. It's expected lo do that soon. After thai Ihe board will scllle down to the routine job of check ing and double-checking on what OPA does. Al Ihc same lime il will have a check over Ihe Agricullurc Department. This is how: When OPA places ceilings on some non-food Hem — like a re- frigeralor — the industry which makes that product can, in time, go to OPA and ask to have the ceiling removed. In doing so, the industry' will have lo show, wilh facls and figures, whv il Ihinks the ceiling should be removed from Ihc prod- ceiling can ap- Hoxha asserted that Albania would like lo be friendly wilh the Greek people "bul Ihc Greek people have no influence in Iheir government."

OPA used to be boss over food prices, too.i But if Ihc Agricullurc Department refuses to remove a food ceiling upon request of an industry, that industry then can appeal to the decontrol board. So that places the board in lop command over price controls — on food and non-food items —and thus enables il to over-ride OPA and the Agriculture Department. All of this — appeal to OPA and Agriculture and the board — is part of the long pull ahead to gel America back lo normal when there shall be no price controls. It will mean a lol of work for the board in the months ahead and for this reason: As the months pass, more and more goods bo produced and will fluw into the markcl.
