S. Pollard of the Asricultual Extension Service sairt yesterday that a price rise of five to six'cems this week may be due to producers withholding birds from the market rather than from increased demand For the second consecutive day brcilers—which dropped as low a, 19U cent-s a pound last week iold yesterday for 25 and 56 ccr.ti' a pound at markets in Northwest Arkansas and Batosville. In at. Louis, Joseph Waddick. publisher of the Daily Nfarkel Reporter, said producers are just about breaking even at. these .prices. Retailers are paying abon.t 28'-. .cents a pound for broilers, he said IP Arkansas growers blamed the price drop on too much production, too little demand and not enough market facilities. The Arkansas Poultry Improvement Association had suggested a 25 to 30 per cent cut in production to meet the emergency, which threatened to put some growers out of business Mayor Hat 'Sauawk' Dny And Invites Citizens In ROCHESTER.
