Price Control Not
Answer To Current
Pains, Timm Says
A return to nation-wide gov-
ernment price control is not the
solution to the nation’s economic
pains, in the opinion of Tyrus R.
Timm, Economist of the Texas A.
&. M. College Extension Service.
There is no quick solution, says
Timm, that may he counted on in
terms of days, weeks or maybe
even months. It may be a matter
The economist believes that the
country, as an alternative, can
go through the current transition-
al period and secure a more sound
economics footing only by shrewd
and frugal family use of house-
hold and business resource*, and
the close cooperation of the pub-
lic with the government on pro-
grams which present laws permit.

TCH. J. B. GASTON WITH
EIGHTH ARMY IN JAPAN
Technician Fifth Grade Jim B.
Gaston, son of Mr. and Mrs. James
D. Gaston of Route 5, Denison,
Texas, is now serving with the
American army of occupation in
jlapan. T-5 Gaston is a member
of the 73rd Engineer Light Equip-
ment Company, a unit of I Corps
th eoccupation force in southern
Japan and the island of Kyushu,
commanded by Maj. Gen. R. B.
Woodruff; where he is a clerk in
the unit’s supply and maintenance
shop. His primary job is to keep
records of parts on hand, and re-
quisition new ones to replace
worn out or broken parts.
T-5 Gaston enlisted in the Unit-
ed States army on 30 June, 1946
at Rarksdale Field, Louisiana, and
upon successful completion of
basic engineer training at Fort
Lewis, Washington, was shipped
overseas in November, 1946. Prior
to entering the service he attend-
According to plans of the city
tax office, statements of 1947
taxes will be mailed out within a|
few days by City Assessor and
Collector Walter ,Lebrecht. The
rate will be the same as last year, J
since any increase in the rates
passed this year will not operate
until next year’s tax paying time.
Also the county tax list will he
mailed within a few days, accord-
ing to Robert Dean, county asses-
sor and collector. Payments may
be made now if desired at the
county tax offices in Sherman.
The Denison branch office will be
open as usual for receiving taxes,
it is planned.
State taxes this year are 72
cents on the $100 valuation. The
rate in 1946 was 37 cents. The
county rate is the same as last
year, 95 cents. Deadline for pay-
ing city taxes is Dec. 31, and for

lege to serve as agricultural rela-
tions advisor to Chester Bowles,
then national administrator of the
Olfice of Price Administration.
“You can’t close down price
control regulation as you would a
theatre and then re-open with the
same show,” says Timm, explain-
ing that price-eost relationships
change swiftly and that the widely
talked price control return would
cull for long months of writing
thousands of new regulations and
making numerous new cost stu-
dies. That phase of a new price
control bill would, alone, lie u
time-consuming and cosily head
ache, says Timm, that looms as a
big point against price control re-
There, is also the question of
getting a new control law through
the congress, the economist con-
tinues. How long, he asks, would
it take to push a generally fair
end equitable law through Doth
the house and the senate? “Surely
there is even less agreement today
upon the provisions which should
be included in a price control act
than there was in the war years,
when, on one occasion, haggling
was so long and drawn that it
took an airplane to get the Presi-
dent’s signature in time to keep
the law from lapsing.”
Another draw back, says Timm,
is the fact that it would be prac-
ticully impossible to gather enough
businessmen and Others who have
the “know-how” and who held
key position in the old
tiol program. Those men
have been the answer, but that,”
the economist says, “is spilled milk
and tears won’t cure the ills.”
What can folks do to lighten
the shock of high prices and high
costs during these months ahead?
