You know—OPA ceilings— If.uor costs up—rayon cloth scarce ;incl high. I wish we could supply your needs but vhat can we uo? * "I'll tell .you what -you're nn old customer—I want lo help you KO I'll give you a tip —my brother next duor—he's Just opened a new business—has plenty of panties, slips.-etc. Oi course, tince hf's u new manufacturer he was allowed to establish LI new ceiling, so they'll be hiiiher. Pnntics that we would have to have sold tor S3.50 per dozen. My brother is fjeiiiDB Sli.OO for. Slips we would have had to sold for $10.00 per dozen my brother is [.eLting $18.00 for. but people need Ihetn and you']] sell them." The above lhe cnm'ersution repeated lo me by a wholesale buyer who had just returned iroiu ti New York buying trip. The nuuuil:u;lurer from whom he lias bought for years had nothing for htm. but his brother had r-lcnty—ut almost twire lhe old manufacturer's ceiling price. This is just one of tlie irick.s u^eci to get around ceilings—I'll leave you to guess where the brother got his capital and stock Ye.s. the OHA refuses to let n manufacturer who was operating before the war raise his prices lint allows a new firm to make the same Kiirment or n cheaper one and sell it nt th? old prices! Another buyer told of an old manufaclurer of women's cotton bloomers whose ceiling was s;i.25 per di!?en to tlie wholesaler. He had asked for an increase of 25c per doztn or .$3.50 tj cover increased cost of production. This was refused. A new mill, however, was allowed to establish a new ceiling of S5.SO for the same garment. The old manufacturer was selling liis cloth to the new mill for more money than he wouHl Jiave gotten for his finished product.! He was niakini: plenty ol money nnd not turning a wheel. I luive bten shirts, pillow cases and towels piled" up in slock rooms and not one for. sale, simply tcc.ausc the OPA had allowed the mills a slight increase in their price to the wholesaled The wholesaler had bought at the new price but had not been able to get permission to increase his price to the retailer, although the price raise had been promised months ago—and all the time people are desperately in need of this merchandise. I am not a chronic kicker but surely there is some fairer and more workable way to control prices and avoid inllation. My suggestion is simple: Remove all price restrictions on textiles. Let the mjjls. the jobber, and the retailer buy and sell their merchandise on a competitive 1 cisis in the usual American way. I believe that 98"! of them are honest, patriotic and fun- For tlie other 2': who would take advantage of a shortage of any 'merchandise lo raise his price and profit by tlie shortage—Fine him enough for the first olfens? to lak<! :-.way double his profits and for the next olfense send him lo jail. Sounds simple. 1 know, but it'll work better than the complex and in many ways unfair system now in effect. My opinion is that the OPA. organized with the best of intentions, hus served its piirpcse admirably, all things considered, but now it has grown "top heavy" and is in danger of defeating the very task for which it was created. Regardless of Shorla^e.s I'nl/.ius continues to bring you the things y<>" need most. Read these Specials arul gel yours Saturday—Always remember there :ire many more Specials than we can list.
