New Plan for
Installment Buying Is
Endorsed to Close Gap.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 9.- (P)-
Price Administrator Leon Henderson
offered today with his own unquali-
fied endorsement a plan for install-
ment buying now of consumer durable
goods like automobiles and refrigera-
tors for delivery after the war.
The plan,, under discussion for
months, was outlined officially for
the first time at a press conference
conducted by Henderson and Rolf
Nugent, director of OPA's credit pol-
icy office, who drafted it. Nugent said
it was designed primarily as "an anti-

the Office of War Information called
it "simply a proposal under discussion
at OPA" and said it "has not received
the approval of the government."
Secretary of the Treasury Morgen-

against the idea but Nugent said he

pate and that they would return home
to find high-paid war plant workers
holding purchase priorities for con-
In its revised form the plan gives
members of the armed forces longer
terms of payment to comperisate for
lower incomes and provides for the
issuance of post-war delivery certifi-
cates through personnel officers and
"I unqualifiedly endorse it and of-
fer it for thought and discussion pro-
voking," Henderson commented.
