The new regulation, which he- came effective August 9, covers sale's H.t both retail and wholesate. with prices based generally on March. 1942, levels. Items covered include used plumbing and heating materials, reconditioned heating equipment, automatic hot water heaters, and seconds and culls for new items. The curtailment of production of new plumbing and heating equipment and the limitation of sales to those holding essential priority ratings have caused a greatly increased demand for used and reconditioned items. The new specific ceilings will end confusion in the industry and will protect consumers from paying unreasonable prices. At the same'time, the normal relationship between the prices of new and used and reconditioned plumbing and heating equipment will in the main be re-established. Items covered by dnllars-and-ccnts prices include bathtubs, lavatories, sinks, faucets and shower batli fixtures. Price schedules are available at War Price and Rationing Boards, nnd must be posted in a conspicuous place in each seller's place of business, OPA said.

UP)— Navy Secretary Forrestal discloses that 231 American ships touched tho shores of coastal waters of southern France during the recent Invasion. Six of them war craft and a part of the approximately loot) Allied vessels which crossed the Mediterranean in the blow against Germany. Kern i /(unity growers and packers of talilu grapes have l..cen holding ii series of mcftinns during the last few days with the gfowcrs and paek- prs of Ontnil California in Sanger in an effort to find some solution to the present grape shipping shutdown brought aliout. Iiy the t'aiiuro of thp Office of I'rico Adtiiini.stration to p.^talillsh a proinisfd lower ceiling prire on wino, thus UecpliiKr winr-nrj. from pstaliliiihinK the pi-ire which they can pay for fresh grapes. $85 Per Ton Under the present i^i-apo. ceiling- price, according to local packer*, the most they can pay for a ton . of Krapes is SS5, while the growers are unwilling to release their product, in belief that the wineries will pay them $101.1. However, because of the ab .sence of revised ceiling pnces on wine, the wineries have slsned very few contracts. As a result of the controversy, the entire grape indus try is stymied. Packers fear that the \VFA will modify the raisin drying order soon by releasing certain acrease, thus flooding the wineries with Thompson ami Muscat grapes. The outcome of the series of meet- j inps was the institution of a plan to ! enlist concerted grower aid in get- j tins ceiling prices established on j wine so that growers can intelli- j gently market their crops.
