Because of increased costs in every phase of newspaper production, this is no longer possible.

We are therefore announcing that effective Oct. 1, 1944, the price of THE MORNING CALL and the EVENING CHRONICLE will be increased from 2 to 3 cents per day or 18 cents per week, while the price of the SUNDAY CALL-CHRONICLE will be 5 cents. There will be no increase in the cost of subscriptions to men and women in the armed services. In making this announcement, we pledge our continued efforts toward providing our readers with the same thorough coverage of local, national and international news that has made the CALL-CHRONICLE NEWSPAPERS the most complete 0 their in the country, and to expand our services wherever possible as wartime restrictions are eased.

We want them to continue getting it. If you are subscribing for someone in the Army or Navy or Marines, or if you are a service man or woman subscribing directly, there are only two things to keep in mind: 1. These subscriptions should be paid in advance, by mail or at the Call-Chronicle circulation offices. 2.

Sept .29. OP) Applications by the Office of Price Administration for injunctions against four Allentown commission cloth weaving concerns were denied today by Federal Judge Harry E. Kalodner. but an injunction against a fifth concern in the same city was granted. The OPA asked that the five concerns be restrained from doing business until they filed base period and current price records in accordance with OPA regulations.

Judge Kalodner held that the four companies Silk Fabrics Co. and United Textile both owned by the same group; Schlegel Brothers, and the S. M. S. Textile Mills may not have kept price records in the way OPA prescribed.

Technically, he said, they may have violated the law, but the infraction was so slight that it did not call for issuance of injunctions.
