ROCHESTER DEMCK3RAP AND CHKONICLE. FRIDAY, ITUIA'i 30, 1943 Til Producer MARKET SEES LITTLE ACTION AT WHOLESALE Consumer Buying Of Grade B's Suggested As demand for eggs continued to exceed the supply on the Public Market here, the State Department of Agriculture and Markets report yesterday noted the change in sales. "Few lots were offered at wholesale but retail selling was active," the report said, indicating that nearby producers were offering the eggs at retail for the better prices they would command to customers. The same condition existed several weeks ago when poultry became scarce, the raisers of chickens offering them at the market at retail prices to get the ceiling permitted for live birds. Meanwhile, consumer purchase and use of Grade B eggs because of the grooving scarcity and higher ceiHr.g prices for Grade A eggs was urged. "Grade I eggs are a good edible food", said Harry Ahlheim, food pricing specialist, "and they are more plentiful at this time of the year when the production of Grade A eggs normally decreases". The retail ceiling price, Ahlheim (:aid, is 55 cents a dozen, compared with 0 cents for Grade A eggs, both in cartons. "General opinion on the market," the state report said, "is that most wholesale sales of eggs are much above ceiling prices but no verified prices are obtainable for the report." Although OPA enforcement officials planned to check on sales yesterday, I)rrow A. Dutcher, of the district legal staff, said in-v-t;ntors were not available. He aid it was jl;.nn-d to check "on th-m tomorrow, a market day. PAVING NEARS ON PLYMOUTH Resurfacing of Plymouth Ave-rue South will be undertaken in a week, it was reported in City Hall yesterday.

These are instructions now knitting headquarters in Spring The yarns to be used are the fos-' gotten odds and ends, which virtually every knitter has tucked away in some drawer. The knitting is the simplest there is. And the result is an afghan to be used in an Army or Navy hospital some place where danger is great and comforts are few. Greatest boosters of the Red Cross afghan project are school children who canvass their neigh-borocLs for scraps of yarn. Discarded knitwear, which can be raveled and reworked into squares, is also in demand. According to Red Cross officials, many of the thousands of afghans turned in to local Red Cross head quarters, have been made by chil dren, who collected the yarn from parents, friends and neighbors. Neophyte knitters learn to make a simplified square, which requires no adding or decreasing of stitches. More accomplished workers make a diagonal square which adds a decorative touch to the finished afghan. The afghans can be made in any size with any number of squares The squares are crocheted together ana reinforced with a crocheted band.

Prices CELEBRATIONS HERE TO MARK FASCISM'S END Italian - American Mass Meeting Projected Plans for a mass meeting of all Italian-Americans in the Rochester area to celebrate "the downfall of Fascism and the liberation of the Italian people in Italy from a yoke that has strangled them for the last 21 years" were drawn last night in Powers Hotel. Sponsors of the plan are the Council of Americans of Italian Extraction, a year-old organization headed by the Rev. Anthony Per-rota. No date has yet been set for the mass meeting. Joseph Plati, secretary, said that the council by resolution last night expressed rejoicing over recent developments in Italy, gave wholehearted approval to President Roosevelt's demand for complete surrender of Italy and to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's offer to Italy for "a peace under honorable conditions." The Italian - American organization which has given a series of Sunday broadcasts in co-operaticn with the Office of War Information, according to the officers, also moved last night to petition the State Department to open communications between conquered territory and the United States.

Leaders of the organization at their emergency session last night voiced predictions that Italy will capitulate within from one to six weeks. The Rev. Mr. Perotta, pastor of St. Mark's Baptist Church, foresaw the fall of Italy within one week. ''Either she will surrender !n one week, or she will fight on and be conquered maybe in a few weeks, maybe in six months," he said.

House Plea Remarks of Attorney Stir Speculation on Eastman Home Remarks of an attorney for the University of Rochester before the City Zoning Board of Appeals yesterday raised speculation about future use of the Eastman House, home of Dr. Alan Valentine, the university president. Newton B. Castle, appearing for the university in a successful bid to obtain permission from the city board for use of the Harper Sibley home at 400 East Ave., recently given to the institution, as a women's dormitory, informed the board it was planned", eventually, C put the Sibley home "back to its former use." He explained that the permission sought was only for the duration of the war and six months, during which time approximately 30 girl students of the Eastman School of Music would be housed there. Cramped dormitory space compelled the institution to seek the permission, he said. Inasmuch as the property now is in possession of the university, under gift of Mr. and Mrs. Sibley, and would adequately meet the requirements of a university president's home, City Hall speculation instantly centered on the possibility that the Sibley home eventually might become the president's home, and Eastman House put to other uses. University sources said last night no such discussions were under way as far as was known. The Zoning Board agreed to use of the Sibley residence as a dormitory over the protest of Robert T. Headley, who wrote the board that recent action of City Council In establishing East Avenue as an "F" residential area should be upheld completely. Earl Newman appeared for the Moose Club, located across East Avenue from the Sibley Home, and Informed the board the club had no objection to the plan. Head-ley does not live in the immediate vicinity of the Sibley property. He and his father, the late Arthur Headley, long have been involved with the city over questions of zon ing in East Avenue. The Zoning Board yesterday de nied the application of Thomas Hughes to utilize property at 52 Hamilton St. for storing and serv icing truck's. Neighbors objected to the plan. Strong neighborhood objection also resulted in denial of the appli cation of Margaret Meckley to oper ate a beauty shop at 79 Kingsley Rd. A petition with S00 names was filed against the application, it was reported.
