ABSTRACT
Focuses on the order of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt to halt the increase in prices and wages. Report that an overwhelming majority in the nation does not want inflation and would prefer to see the cost of living remain where it is; Report that the order is not so inflexible as to be unjust, even though its application covers the whole field; Impregnable position of the President against those who were most imminently threatening to upset the stabilization program; Report that if Senator John L. Lewis attempts to force the government to sanction more wage increases for the miners than would be justified by the established policy, the President is bound to hold out against him, and in doing so will have solid backing not only from the farmers and the general public but from most of organized labor as well; Dependence of direct price control through vigorous and skillful administration; Improvements done by the controlling authorities in this field; Obstruction by the Congress of a policy related to farm labor, by striving in the special interest of certain districts to tie labor to the regions where it happens to be, regardless of how much and how well it is used there.
