Stimson Asks Continued Price Controls for Post-

Regulations Are
Needed To Aid

In Reconversion
War Secretary Says
Ceilings Are Necessary
In Lieu of High Taxes
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 28.-Price
controls are necessary now to save
the government as well as the people
from spiraling prices and will be
needed for some time after the war
to facilitate reconversion and pro-
tect returning servicemen, Secretary
of War Stimson said today.
Senator Taft (Rep., O.) told him
extension of the controls is "a matter
of course" and the only changes in
contemplations are such as may be
needed to eliminate possible "injus-
tire: '
Risk of Inflation
"Having chosen greater emphasis
on regulatory governmental control
without substantially heavier taxes,"
Stimson 'told the Senate Banking
Committee, "I suggest that it would
be highly unwise at this stage, at
least, to remove or materially modify
those controls and thus to run the
risk of a price rise that might well
be the beginning of the dread spiral
of inflation."
The Secretary testified in support
of legislation to continue stabiliza-
tion controls for a year after June 30.
Government Benefits
The government itself has bene-
fited from controlled prices to such
an extent, Stimson .said, that its
money is "actually purchasing more
airplanes, tanks, guns and ammuni-
tion than were originally anticipated."
James G. Patton, president of the
National Farmers Union, asked not
only for extension of the stabilization
and price controls acts, but for a
mandate to the Office of Price Ad-
ministration to be "tough" in en-
forcement and for restoration of OPA
power to order grade labeling and
standards "as a protection against
the hidden inflation of quality deter-
Patton, whose organization claims
a membership of 350,000 small farm-
ers, urged also that there be no
"emasculating amendments" and
specifically opposed any ban on food
price subsidies.
