WASHINGTON, May ?-(P)-The
government ordered slaughterers to
set aside more pork and lard for ex-
port today while President Truman
emphasized that his administration
still stands for price controls on meat.
Slaughterers were directed to set
aside for government export purchase
pork products equal to 15 per cent
of the live weight of the hogs they
slaughter and a quantity of lard and
rendered pork fat equal to six per
cent of the live weight of their
The order, effective Monday, ap-
plies to federally-inspected plants in
all except 11 southeastern states
where output is insufficient to meet
The set-aside percentage now is
13 per cent for perk products and
five per cent for lard. The program
has not applied previously to ren-
dered pork fats. Beef already is sub-
ject to a set-aside order with the gov-
ernment taking about ten per cent
Controls To Be Maintained
The Vresident declared that he
"wishes it clearly understood that
as long as there are dangerous up-
ward presures on meat prices and as
long as the government has the au-
thority to deal with them, price con-
trols on livestock and meat will be
He issued a statement to clear up
"a series of unfortunate mis-interpre-
tations" as Speaker Rayburnfrom
cattle-raising texas came out for
abandonment of beef price controls.

State FHA Director Prediclts
Increase in Building Material
Increased supplies of building ma-
terials were predicted for the near
future by Harry M. Steffy, assistant
state director of the Federal Housing
Administration, in a talk last night
at the Ann Arbor High School.
Steffy said that supplies of critical

point at present and that as they
become more abundant building re-
strictions will probably be relaxed.
"By the close of the year," he said,
"the Civilian Production Administra-
tion hopes to be able to remove all
of the building restrictions now in ef-
As he explained, present OPA ord-
ers limit domestic building to a $10,-
000 ceiling and require official per-
