Arnall said that unless the lawmakers act he will be compelled to boost ceilings because of a court decision that the amendment applies to all distributors. The office of price stabilization has been operating on the basis that It applied only to processors and manufacturers of goods and to sellers of services. • * • THE A3HENDMKNT, sponsored by Senator Gapohart (R-Ind) and added to the controls law last year, permits ceilings to be boosted by adding all Increased costs up to last July 28 to pre-Korean prices. Amoll's views were sot out in a letter to the senate and house banking committees which handle controls legislation. He told them the effect of the court decision may bo "disastrous to effective price stabilization." The letter was written as OPS officials disclosed substantial hikes in food prices, ranging from one to several cents a package on a long list of items, may bo approved next week. « « « OrS OFFICIAI,S told reporters these boosts are to bo granted because earnings of the foods industry arc low. They said it has no connection with the possible extension of the Capchart amendment to the distrtbutbrs. Officials said the impending increases probably will apply to such things OS concentrated coffee, dry cereals, crackers, canned fruits, vegetables and most canned meats but not to canned tuna and salmon- The court decision troubling Arnall was In a suit brought by Safety Stores, Inc., food chain. Safeway sued for price boosts; contending the Capchart nmondmenf applied to wholesalers and retailers. * * • THE EftlEBOENCY court of appeals—a special court which handles price cases—upheld Safeway's contention. Arnall told the lawmakers that OPS is asking the Justice department to appeal the decision to the supreme court. But, Arnall said, congress should act immediately to clarify the wording of the Capchart amendment to make clear that it does not apply to distributors—that it applies only to manufacturers, processors and service sellers. • * « IIE SAID* ms understanding was that congress did not intend to apply It to distributors. He said the court agreed that debate and other comment was to that offccl, but hold the language of the provision Is broad and must be applied to all persons or buslncisos, Arnall said that under the ruling hundreds of thousands ot food stores, and all sellers of morchon- dlso, could seek price increases. He said it would make uniform dollars-and-cents ceilings or standard markups almost Impossible, and create a virtually impOBsible administrative problem. OPS indicated that the food price boosts to offset fhe decline in earnings of the Inaustry may be announced next Tuesday.
