Senate Votes
To End OPA,
War Controls
Courts To Take ,
Rent Regulation
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 5 -
The Republican-dominated Sen-
ate, overriding Democratic pro-
tests, voted 58-29 today to end
OPA and other wartime control
agencies by June 30.
A little earlier, a Senate banking
subcommittee voted 3-2 against
Democratic opposition to author-
ize a general 10 per cent boost in
rents. Under this bill rent con-
trols would be taken from OPA
and left to the courts to enforce.
The decision to send OPA to the
graveyard of governmental war-
time agencies took the form of a
stipulation in a $180,000,000 defi-
ciency appropriation for various
government bureaus.
OTC Marked for Death
The stipulation marked for
death the Office of Temporary
Controls and its constituent agen-
cies. These include the remain-
ing remnants, not only of OPA,
but of the Civilian Production
Administration which wielded
enormous priority powers during
the war, and the Office of War
Mobilization and Reconversion.
The appropriation bill, passed
by the Senate today, goes back to
the House for action on amend-
ments.
It contains about $17,000,000 to
enable OPA to wind up its duties,
which now consist mainly of en-
forcing controls over rents, sugar
and rice.
Senator Lucas (Dem., Ill.) said
the money was not enough, that
the bill would spell the end of
rent control by April 30. But Sen-
ator Taft (Rep., Ohio) told the
Senate that Congress would be
able to set up new control ma-
chinery well ahead of April 30.
Beginning of End
Lucas' contention was also chal-
lenged by Chairman Bridges (Rep.,
N .H.) of ..the Senate Appropria-
tions Committee, who said the bill
merely signified "the beginning
of the end of OPA."
Senator Cordon (Rep., Ore.) de-
clared that OVaA would have ample
funds to carry on and estimated it
would have $10,000,000 more than
the amount needed to pay its final
going-out-of-business expenses.
House Passes
State Bonus
Payment Bill.
LANSING, March 5-((/P)-By
a 93 to 0 vote, the House of Rep-
resentatives today passed the Vet-
erans Military Pay Act, bringing
closer the first bonus payments
which observers expect in April.
The measure, which defines the
qualifications for bonus payments
and sets , up its administration,
was approved by the Senate, but
will be returned to that house for
concurrence in house-added
amendments.
Tlie most recent amendment was
one added today on the proposal of
Rep. L. Harvey Lodge, Pontiac
Republican, to permit the state to
accept any federal financial or
other aid which may be provided.

'I have in mind possible frank-
ing privileges and tIV donation of
war surplus office equipment,
largely," Lodge said. "Free postage
alone would save thousands of
dollars and much clerical labor."
As the bill stands, resident vet-
erans would be entitled to $10 for
each month of domestic services,
$15 for each month of foreign
service, but not more than $500.
A resident is defined as one who
was born and has always lived in
Michigan, one who was born else-
where but lived six months in
Michigan before enering service,
or one who was born in Michigan
and was temporarily out of the
State when inducted. Registered
voters are presumed to be residents
under the act.
A qualifying veteran is any man
or woman who served honorably
for 60 days or more in the Army,
Navy, Coast Guard or Marines.
Application for the bonus must
be made within two years of the
date the Governor signs the Act.
