CORN CEILING PRICES LISTED Sale of Butchered Meal* Require Ratioo Stamps Clear -Lake--Important information has been released by the Clear Lake ration board "regarding the sale of farm slaughtered meat. It is subject to the same provisions of wartime rationing which affect meat obtained from any other legitimate source, it is pointed out by the office of price administration. However, iarm -families who v raise animals for their own use .are not required to give up points for meat from these animals, if home or custom slaughtered. Farm families may also borrow and lend meat to each oth'er without exchanging points, but when rationed'cuts of home or customs slaughtered meat are sole or given away, red points must be collected by the farmer and turned into the local war price and rationing board! All farmers who sell, rationed meat may get from their war price and rationing board the new official table of point values- The smaller cuts are listed on the consumer table. Large cuts or carcasses--such as'a quarter of beef half of a hog, or whole carcass--are listed on the trade point value table. Both tables are printed on the same sheet. · Families buying meat from a farmer may use as many as 18 red stamps from each book 'in advance of the general validation dates. This gives the consumer 180 extra points a book for buying farm meat in large quantities tc store lor future use. Several factors must be taken into consideration in computation of correct ceiling prices for corn it was pointed out this week by Walter D. Kline, director of the Des Moines OPA district. In explanation of 'his statement the official stated that the OPA .ceiling is based on No. 2 yellow shelled with moisture content o not more than-15^4 per cent. Be auctions must be made for com having greater moisture conten and for grades lower than No. 2 The ear corn price must alway be less than that for shelled com to the extent of the value or cos of shelling. Kline said that complete information ' on corn prices is being sent to all local war price and ra tiomng boards in the Des Moine district of 64 Iowa counties He urged all interested persons to make inquiry at their own boarc office for information applicable to their shipping point. "Both buyers and sellers of corn should exercise care in establish ing the price a.bushel," the OPA official stated, "and Hhis advice applies to all larmer-to-farme transactions as much as to othe kinds-of sales. Although the q'uot ed market price may actually b a few cents below the ceilin prices, .the grade and moisrur content may call for deductions greater than the few cents differ ence between selling price ana quoted market or ceiling price. In other words, a sales price of a feu cents under ceiling might actual!be above-ceiling for the grain con cerned."

In announcing information from the report to him by George E O'Malley, district enforcement at tomey; Kline declared "the recorc is commendable from every stand point but we shall never lose sigh 01 our. firm determination to em phasize in preference to enforce ment" Besides collections, O'Malley re ported that operations in his divi sion the past year included: 2,71 investigations in which 2,218 vio lations were found; 97 court unctions to prohibit future viola- ons; 52 treble damage actions in ourts; 13 suspension orders inn- ting rights.of individuals named 0 deal in rationed · commodities; 1 warning notices against further iolation of OPA regulations, and ·eferral of 12 criminal actions to T nited States attorneys.
