OP)—A •eeently fired RFC official testified oday he accepted a number of ;a!e beef ceilings are being raised. It said lhat retail beef and pork price boosts will be coming along few days, meaning the housewife will pay about two cents a pound more. Today OPS said beef proccssors an also compute new ceilings. They may do so by taking pre-Korean selling pi-ices, and adding the increased cost of raw materials. OPS said the overall rc.sult will be to raLse prices at the buicher- shop counter. The new regulation, effective next Saturday, applies to cured, corned, cooked, smoked, dried and barbecued beef. OPS said a few processors who raised their prices faster than their ccst when up before (lie general price freeze may get rollbacks. A beef carcass under the" new wholesale ceilings, effective Wednesday, will be about a penny-a- pound higher. The OPS said this is necessary because prices for hides and fats from a beef animal have dropped to a point denting packer processing profits. Packing Houses Protest Two big Midwest packing houses immediately protested that the penny increase is not enough to help them out of a squeeze betweer the price of live beef atid the amount they can pay for it under ceiling regulations. The higher beef wholesale prices will require the higher retail prices. These changes in buteher shop cell- ings will average about Hi to 2 cents a pound more to Ihe housewife for beef cuts- gifts from an official of American .ilhofold Corp. after helping the company get RFC loans.
