Senate OPA
Ceiln Ban
Compromise ill
Promptly Rejected
WASHINGTON, July 18- (P) -
Senate conferees on OPA rejected
today a proposal bynHouse members
for a compromise that would have
removed the Senate ban on any fur-
ther price ceilings for meat, milk,
eggs and other foods.
Senator Taft (Rep., O.) and Chair-
man Spence (Dem., Ky.) of the
House Banking Committee jointly
announced the House members had
offered, and that Senate members
promptly rejected, this compromise
1. That the Senate recede from
the provision of its bill that prohibits'
any further price controls on a long
list of major food items.
2. That the Senate also back down
on a section of its bill that gives OPA
discretionary power in the applica-
tion of a new pricing formula which
would require price increases for a
large number of manufactured ar-
In both cases, it was disclosed, the
Senate members of the conference
committee rejected the House pro-
posal by a vote of four to three.
One conference member said the
situation appears to be "completely
stalemated," However, the House-
Senate committee appointed a sub-
committee composed of Taft and
Senators Tobby (Rep., N.H.) and
Radcliffe (Dem., Md.) to attempt the
writing of a compromise overnight
on the House proposal that the de-
controls on food be removed from
the bill. Another session of the con-
ference committee was set for to-
morrow morning.

President Truman today made it
clear that the matter of a $1,000,000,-
000 loan to Russia is dead for this
At a presidential news conference
which covered a wide range of topics,
he was asked whether he plans to
request authorization from Congress
for other foreign loans now that the
$3,750,000,000 credit to Britain has
been approved. The chief executive
said he has no such intentions.
He also said that the proposal to
enlarge the lending authority of the
export-import bank by $1,250,000,000
will not come up until the next ses-
sion of Congress, in 1947. This in-
crease would have to be approved

Seen By Students At Clinics

The University's Fresh Air clinic,
held every Friday night at the Fresh
Air Camp on Patterson Lake, offers
students and teachers in the socio-

The prime concern of the clinic
is to review the case history of the
child, his family, home and school
environment, and his life at camp,

and education students, give the stu-
dent an excellent chance to see how
sociologists work when confronted
with an actual problem.
