The overlooked fact in most accounts ot the house OPA continuance was .that the legislation legis-lation proposed extension until next March 31, nine' months more. The way some of the stories read you might think discontinuance discon-tinuance was Immediate. Im-mediate. The opposition oppo-sition statements ot Messrs. Bowles and Porter absorbed at tention of the re porters entirely. When the extension date was men tioned, it frequently was presented as I have done above, In a confus ing way. Actually. th extension works out to be more than 11 months from now, and nine months beyond tht expiration date of OPA powers on June 30, A lot of water may go over many dams la the next 11 months and the continuance of the government's powers to act against prices tor that long time eould hardly be called. destruction of OPA. What angered the admlnlstra- ' tion to unusual bitterness against the bill were the amendments. amend-ments. -One amendment proposed pro-posed What was i generally described de-scribed as "cost plus reasonable reason-able profits to producers and handlers." OPA contended this would Upset their ceilings on many of the' major Items of production, autos,- rubber and such. This would depend upon whether their ceilings now deny "cost plus profit' on these Items and It would require a skilled mathematician a week to figure out the Involved formula formu-la for one Item. Frankly I , would not attempt to referee this argument A NEARLY TEAR LEFT FOB NEW ADJUSTMENTS ' ' Certainly, however, the general notion of "cost plus reasonable profit" does not sound like an un reasonable Invasion ox the consunv ers' rights, or what OPA is sup posed to have been doing. There was one amendment? which seemed to . me logically what might possibly be called "murderous" of OPA, as one Irate. Democratic congressman termed the bill, which was approved ap-proved SB a final passage by 205 Democrats, Including . himself, and 148 Republicans." This Was the one to drop controt ever certain cer-tain articles when their production produc-tion reaches the level of production pro-duction of the year July 1, 1940, to June $0, 1911 which was far from the "peak year It was described to be to one of the ' accounts. Production did Suit reach a peak until the last year of the war. Now It would be entirely logical and sensible for price controls to be removed the moment production reaches current demand. Ot course current consumer demand is great er than July, 1940-June, 194L It is very much greater, due to the accumulation ac-cumulation ot demand tor consumer consum-er goods during the war. It might be "murderous" to OPA to Impose that new formula on cessation of regulations, but it would be what fairness demands. Belief of regula tions should be timed to the period when production can care for the present demand, when the pressure ot shortages for higher prices has been relieved. The other Important amendment called for gradual elimination of subsidies. Frankly, I nave never liked subsidies. The theory is wrong to pay from the treasury, which is the money of all the people (and their debt now la heavy), certain portion of the price which should be paid by the man who buys the article. Not eves Mr. Truman has defended subsidies as a permanent perma-nent proposition. Whether the time limit fixed by the house would work efficiently, again calls tor intricate in-tricate technical knowledge ot the effect ot the removal on each article at each time. A revision of the bill by the senate sen-ate is being prophesied by most authorities, au-thorities, but It Is not likely to be a fullpower lease of existing authority au-thority ss the administration has been demanding. Not only have the party chieftains exhibited confusion tn a series ot ridiculous mistakes" as to whether wheth-er they ire running Mr- Truman or congress this year, but they have been building up- sideline campaign cam-paign on the Roosevelt bier.

To the uninitiated the arguments pro and con on this proposed $3,750,-000,000 $3,750,-000,000 loan are confusing. They are Involved with high finance and for eign trade, with the sterling bloc, the export cycles, with Interna tional credit and many other factors which only experts at that sort of thing can readily perceive. Stripped down to everyday lan guage. However, nere are we po tent factors: (1) We are actually merely extending Britain a line of credit to the amount of $3,750,000,-000; $3,750,000,-000; (2) She can draw on this credit until December $1, 1951, and pays us back In SO equal installments with Interest at per cent; she must pay the principal installment every year and (3) Britain agrees to open up to unrestrained American trade the entire British Commonwealth of South Africa, India, Australia, the British Isles and every place else where sterling Is the rate of exchange ex-change to American business and American dollars and she cannot obtain a loan from any third coun try until after 1951. Now that's what we give and Britain promises. What do we get back? We get our money back, plus Interest, plus $050,000,000 of lend-lease balance, plus increased exports to Britain and the British Commonwealth, plus payment in dollars, plus no discriminatory discrim-inatory Import restrictions against the U. S., plus paying a portion of her debts to other nations in American Amer-ican dollars giving other countries more money with which to buy American goods, plus support of the American proposals for getting world trade going through an International In-ternational Trade Organization. We Would Cain Much Now why is this loan important to the average business man and farmer in the small towns ot the country? There are four reasons: (1) We must have an expanding foreign for-eign trade to keep our high productive produc-tive capacity on farm and factory going full tilt; (2) Britain and the British Commonwealth of Nations were our best customers before the war . . . they took 42 per cent of our trade; (3) an expanding foreign trade among nations can s nappen unless Britain can pay her war debts and can be put on an economically eco-nomically sound basis, for though we have a huge war debt, we owe no one but the American people, whereas Britain owes other nations and (4) without economlo security of other nations, fostered by expanding expand-ing world trade, there can be no Insurance In-surance of world peace. And a fifth reason Is that Britain, our ally, took an unmerciful pounding costing cost-ing thousands of British lives, to save American lives while we were getting prepared for war. , The argument is made that Britain Brit-ain did not pay her debt to us after World War I. She did pay back 434 million dollars in principal and 1V4 billion dollars in interest before the . world depression caught her. The argument also is made that to 1.. IkU Iahii n;i1 ahiba rmA trt JllUnO talis) iuau nm vauov oumv u- nation here and the answer is that, Britain only wants goods which ' come from our war-expanded indus tries ana commouiues ui which we have surpluses and moreover, if she spends It . all here, it would only amount to five-tenths of 1 per cent t the total demand for goods and services in this country over an anticipated five-year period. Little Left to Sell Let Britain sell her holdings in this country, is anouier argument oi the Isolationists. ' But she has only 685 million dollars in unpledged assets as-sets In this country, and in addition she Is borrowing H4 billion dollars from Canada at 2 per cent, the only Other country which has dollars. Another argument Is, why should ; we loan our dollars to a socialist A.tlnnf Wall r therm la ntlActinlt ' of whether or not England really ts ' Socialist Even if it is, nevertheless neverthe-less lt is the Bank of England that finances the British government with internal, loans. Most certainly an expanauig wona iraao ana attending at-tending prosperity will tend to Strengmen rawer man. weaKen mo free enterprise system, even in England. Eng-land. So the British loan will not subsidize socialism - in England. V , And the argument that to make a loan to Britain will open the door to applications for other nations. This Is answered In this fashion. . . . UNRRA will take care of relief loans. - The International Bank will take care of long-term reconstruction reconstruc-tion and development loans and the U, S- Import-Export bank will help finance American foreign trade. British financiers have told house majority leader Barkley that they cannot enter the international bank or the monetary fund unless the loan Is granted without "strings."
