It also restricts manufacturers to their priced line for 1<H2 but a five per cent increase to 'cover higher costs, Under the plan, manufacturers of men's and boy's tailored clothing will be permitted to base their prices generally on current rather than March 1942 costs as in the past. At the same time, however, they must return to the average markup of I94:i instead of using generally higher 1945 markups. The result. OPA said, may be a slight increase in the cost of lower- priced lines— a step necessary lo spur production ...... but will bring a compensating cut in more expensive items. Thus, it said, there will be "no substantial change" in overall prices. Louis RoMischild, executive director of the National Association of Retail Clothiers and Furnishers, predicted the new order would speed to the market large quantities of lower cost clothing which were being held up in hopes of higher prices. . • Rothschild said severai days ago that at least 700,000 men's and boy's ..suits were among "hoarded" slocks.
