Aulh»rl >Mt DMIW far STEWART WARNER and CAPEHAR1 RADIOS and TELEVISION Ouarant «M Sato iM CarvlM burSm By DOROTHY ROE AP Women's Editor IF LEFT TO HER OWN DEVICES, the American housewife could do a pretty good job of price control on her own hook. The most graphic illustration of this little-recognized fact is the recent price-cutting that has been going on all over the country on items that a few months earlier were supposed to be hard to get. Such things as electric refrigerators, sewing machines, ranges, mixers, television sets and kitchen sinks are available now at prices that have been cut from 10 to 33 1/3 per cent since spring, These reductions vary in different parts of the country, of course, and with different dealers. The amount of the price cut usually depends on how heavily the dealer is overstocked. IN SOME INSTANCES, however, the reductions have been made by the manufacturers, many of whom also found themselves with too much stock on hand. And what brought about this carnival of bargains? It was the plain common sense of Mrs. U. S. A. herself, who simply decided not to buy. There was, you may remember, a big buying rush in January, when the word went out that a severe shortage was due in so- called "hard goods" — the home appliances and furniture mentioned above. Many people were convinced that if they didn't get that new refrigerator or washing machine right then they would have to make the old one do until the end of a probable World War III. But there were others who decided not to be stampeded into a lot of scare buying, and simply sat back and waited. » * * * THOSE ARE THE SHOPPERS who now are taking advantage of th current savings, and are being pretty smug about it, too. The same thing has happened to the predicted beef shortage. Instead of bidding for steak at any price, and thus encouraging new black markets, the average American housewife has been ordering chicken, turkey and ham this summer and leaving the beef in the butcher's display counter under its astronomical price tag. If you need clothes for the family, you can find bargains in summer clearance sales all over the place, and by judicious select tion probably can buy the year round kind of garments that will do duty for several seasons. Household linens also should be available at reduced prices in the August white sales. Men's shirts, children's pajam as and play clothes, women's nylon stockings — all these may be found at current clearances.
