Abandoning of Price
Controls on All Meat
Advocates 90-Day Test Period To Get
Livestock Packing Back to Normal
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 1-Secretary of Agriculture Anderson said today
that price control on meat should be abandoned unless a 90-day test period
shows packers can get livestock in "something like normal" volume.
He agreed, in an appearance at Senate Banking Committee hearing,-,
with the packers' cry that those who stay within ceiling prices have been
unable to get stock for slaughter.
Anderson said that two things may correct the situation: (1) new
quotas designed to route to slaughterers the same volume they had in 1944
and (2) a campaign to prevent diversion to black markets and other
abnormal sources of trade.
"This is about the last effort to

>Barkley (Dem., Ky.) in a discussion
of meat control.
Barkley had related that a stock-
man "in whom I have every confi-
dence" stated that while he normally
slaughtered 7,000 head a week he can
now get but 500. Anderson called this
a typical case.
"Large, reliable companies can't
get cattle in the (price) compliance
range," he said. "They run up against
people who don't care about the
compliance range and these people
take it away from them.
"That's why slaughter quotas were
Anderson said the quotas were ef-
fective earlier and they might turn
the trick again, although he said
packers were not convinced they
would help enough.

telephone chat with Foreign Minister
Bidault of France today and promptly
found himself projected into a con-

The White House said the two had

French Elections Approach
French elections are only a month
off. Bidault is a leader of the one of
the three big parties, the Popular Re-
publican Movement (MRP), which is
battling it out with the Communists
News of the telephone call broke in
Paris. Immediately afterward offi-

whether a close identification of Bi-

economic assistance, would influ-

Two Moves Possible
What effect the day's developmentt
might have on French politics was
a speculation that, according to dip-
lomatic experts, could move in two
directions. In contrast with Thorez'
show of assistance from Russia with
the wheat shipments, the non-com-
munist parties headed by Bidault and
Blum presumably would be able to
make a show of assistance from the
United States which would be drama-
tized by Bidault's telephone talk with
Mr. Truman. On the other hand is
the fact that the White House de-
cleared that the two had not dis-
cussed any politics or business.
Forrestal Rebukes Plan
To Merge Armed Forces
Suggests New Cabinet Post To Coordinate
Relations Between Governept Agencies
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 1-Secretary of the Navy Forrestal today lambasted
anew legislation to merge the armed forces, although praising President
Truman's "basic objective" of postwar unification.
Appearing before the Senate Naval Committee, Forrestal lashed out at
what he termed the "Army Plan for merger"--a bill aimed to carry out the
President's recommendations, which already has been approved by the Sen-
ate Military Committee.
After presenting a formal state-~ -
ment, which was made public, For-
restal was in closed session with the 'Cou ty Artists

NANKING, May 1-(P)-China's
government moved back officially to-
day from Chungking to this ancient
northern city and was confronted
with problems almost as complex as
those of 1937 when the Japanese
drove it out of Nanking.
In government halls where the Jap-
anese conqueror and his puppet gov-
ernment once sat, the rulers of a
freed China must tackle the monu-
mental problems~ of internal strife
The government declared the task
of reconstruction was heavier than
that of waging war, and urged the
people to unite in bringing peace and
prosperity to China.
The paramount job of the moment
was to halt the government-Com-
munist fighting in Manchuria.
General Marshall, special U. S. en-
voy who arranged the truce for China
proper, was reported hopeful that an
agreement halting the Manchurian
conflict could be made shortly after
the government and Communist ne-
gotiators arrive, from Chungking
later this week.
On the political front, Minister of
Organization Chen Li-Fu told a press
conference the National Assembly
might be convened early in June to
adopt China's new constitution.
Chiang Kai-Shek postponed the
Assembly, originally scheduled to
meet May 5, as one concession to the
Communists, who had been demand-
ing a delay.
