DECEMBER 18, Most Food Items Still Below Price Ceiling Levels Controls Seem , ""i*;,«« c e mn« « f .mi ± ~;J22* 1 po *' to -' P-.P*™*, uw* npa ,t. ,.,<>»• u» t the ?„. Controls Seem Far Off fcr Seme Time to Come B.v OVIO A. MARTIN 1 WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. (AP) .The bulk of the Items in the family •hi market basket, appeared likely •i^lay to escape government price controls for some time to come. With Lh« exception of some meals, rice, and cottonseed oil, 'arm prices of food commodities »re all still below price ceiling levels set by law. For that reason, establishment of ceilings right now would have little or no effect on holding down food Prices. In most cases, the ceilings «'ould / be above current market prices ao far as farm products 'are —,_ ceiling* on furm product must not beiow parity or oelow prices which prevailed during the 30 days preceding start of the Korean war on June as. Parity is a legal standard for measuring farm prices. It Ls declared by law Lo be equally lair to farmers and those who buy their products. Mure May Go Above The latest government report on larm prices—issued Nov. 30—showed that only cotton, cotnnseed, wool, flue-cured tobacco, beef cattle, veal calves, lambs and rice were bringing prices above the minimum ceil!:*;; icvcis. More may be shown to be above the celling mark in the next report due Dec. 29. Some products were bringing less than two-thirds of their minimum ceiling prices In the last report. They Included potatoes, grain sor- and orange*. Other commoditlei which wew selling (or less th»n minimum ceilings Included wheat, corn, pwnuts, butttrf.t, milk, barley, dry b«»rw, oats, rye, soybeans, apples, chickens; eggs, hogs and' turkeys. The , law permits establishment of pollings of processed food product* but not al levels which would hold farm prices below their minimum ceilings. . In other words, i bread price ceiling could not be set which would keep wheat from reaching the minimum ceiling for the grain, Could Set Ctlllttfi But It Is passible that some processed food items are selling for enough to permit prices of their farm raw materials to advance to ceiling levels. In such cases, the government could set ceilings on the prices of the finished Items. Lat«*t report* slmv that the farmer gets m iveragft of 50 cents from every dollar the -housewife spends for food. The margin varies by items, however. The farmers' share ranges from about 18 per cent for bread to about 70 per cent for eggs and milk. The government might Justify ceilings on finished Items processed from farm products selling at less than parity i/ it felt processors and distributors could get along with smaller margins. B,,I. on ( lle wnole the government is expected to .allow most farm products to reach their minimum ceiling levels before it imposes ceilings on their Hushed or processed products. Whle most moat animals are selling for more than their minimum ceiliriRs, there is a question whether the government will put meat under price control until it is ready to ration supplies. _._ „ .-^___ TOUCH TRAINING FOR BERLlNERS-A "bull fight- provides strenuous exercise to keep these members of the neiv West Berlin Industrial police in good physical condition.
