The retail agreement provides two codes: A basic code covering Ell retail activities including sales of drugs and a separate code for drug stores alone. A proposal for a non-governmental board of prominent persons to observe and report on operation of the code's price control provi- ] sions is contemplated, it was learn- ] ed.
