SHORTS NEWS i A WD w WAR RESTRICTIONS CUT FOOD PRICES Slump in Demand for Farm Products Laid to Reduced Exports TRENTON. April 4. Reversing the usual tendencies to increase food prices, the war in Europe appears to be causing a definite slump in the demand for farm food products, with a consequent decline in retail costs, the New Jersey Department of Agriculture stated today, in its monthly survey of the average retail food prices in this state. The average retail cost of all foods was 1.68 per cent lower in March than during February, 1940. In commenting upon the continued decline of all foods in recent months, D. T. Pitt, statistician of the Department of Agriculture, said, "The war in Europe has diminished rather than stimulated the export demand for our farm products. Our fruit exports have been drastically reduced. "In the first few months of the war there was an increase in domestic demand for farm products due to increased industrial production in anticipation of expected war requirements. Now that industrial production has declined, the outlook for domestic de mand for farm products is not so favorable. As a result, food prices are going down." Among the commodity groups showing the greatest drop m March below the February prices. fresh eggs registered a decline of 14.86 per cent. Records of egg receipts at principal markets indicate that egg production is increasing rapidly from the low lev el caused by the cold spell in late ; January and early February.
