Cedar Rapids Protests OPA Price Hearing Cedar Rapids, (if)--A. committee representing Cedar Rapids lood dealers, aroused over office of price administration hearings on alleged overcharges involviing retail meat markets Thursday expected to consult an attorney prior to possible further protest steps. The decision was reached at an indignation meeting df the Linn County Food Dealers association Wednesday night which more than 100 of the cily's approximately 175 retailers attended. A majority contributed $1 or more to back the committee financially. The meeting was an outgrowth of an OPA crackdown on some 72 wholesale and retail meat dealers for alleged overcharges 'totaling $25,483.84. The overcharges involving retailers only totaled $6,407.21 including 64 retail mar- kefs whose estimated overcharges were $4,676.21 and 7 whoesale-re- tail markets whose Estimated retail overcharges were $1,731. There was considerable protest at the meeting over the OPA's "method of spot checking dealers" and even more criticism because the OPA news release told only of overcharges whereas, the dealers declared, most rationed meat items for sale in Cedar Rapids are priced under the ceiling. Executive Secretary W, T. Ship* opened the meeting by reading a prepared statement which said "It is thought by virtue oj a vigorous protest to the OPA of what each and ail of you may f«el are inequities in the setup, or regulations, 'some less irritating method of damning the retailers might be worked out." He questioned the basis on which the OPA invulii.tions were made--6»yinr that seme of th* aliened overcharges were correct ftt particular times--and adding: "Jf that is a general overall Situation with the $tQre.s it might be we cap create and appoint some committees here tonight to investigate and as a result pj their findings negotiate with the OPA and get the penalties cut down as materially reduced. "There is one thing we are all definitely in agreement on and that is, correct'the damnable way the OPA took to crack the case and make it appear^.indirect1y=- that you are profiteers and the consumer i$ being robbed." The comment was frequent that none of the overcharges ware in, tentional^that a grocer's life is one of misery these days with price ceilings, labor shortages, 'inexperienced help, ration coupon, and gasoline rationing--*ncl it is small wonder more honest mistakes aren't made. : Kropman Grocery $1.50 It tth St. N.

G. Murray, acting head of the Iowa State college agricultural economics department. Surplus farm income, U invested in war bonds to meet part of Iowa's goal in the 4th war loan drive, will help families build Up liquid assets to improve their farms and equipment after the war. At the same time it will help hold down national inflation, Murray says. Building up a reserve through purchase ot war bonds is part of a financial plan that h« recom- meadc. He also advocates paying off short lerm debts or adjtastlnr them to a schedule of annual interest and low principal payments through the anticipated post-war period of lower prices. Heavy debts should be reduced to a, safe level. Establishment of the financial reserve will help meet post-war interest and principal payment* and may be the means of avoiding future borrowing. Warning against speculation, he this salt PI A IN O* I O D I Z E D ·WHINJT.tAINS IT room in grapefruit says additional farm land should not be purchased unless it contributes to efficient operation of Hie farm business. He advises use o£ a simplified farm and home accounting system as an aid to budgeting. War bonds provide the best form of financial reserve far farm families because they have a redemption value of 100 cents on the dollar invested and bear interest at 2.9 per cent if kepi to maturity. Furthermore, if Uicrfc is need for cash, war bonds can be redeemed any time following 60 days from date of issue.
