The only important basic foot commodity not thus far price-controlled will come under OPA ceilings after Jan. 29, when the much- discussed live cattle ceilings go into effect. The new ruling Is expected b rationiiiff"off!cials to make distrl button of the better grades of bee more equitable and to hold dow prices. The live-cattle ceiling i designed to square a "viclou circle" which, according to OPA threatened the whole meat pric structure. Before the establishment of on the-hoof ceilings, OPA explain some few slaughterers, intereste only in getting all the choice bee hey could, paid whatever price 'as necessary to get it. These rices were often so high the aughters had to charge their holesalers excessive prices and le wholesalers in turn hiked leir price to the butchers. Butch- rs who paid the overcharge assed the difference on to their ustomers. Under the new directive, the rice of meat will be controlled 11 down the line. No slaughterer vill be able to pay more than $18 hundredweight for any grade of attle. No slaughterer will be permitted to buy only the top grades if beef. They will have to take ome of each grade, spreading heir purchases so that- other laughterers have an equal chance at the high-quality meat. OPA and the office of economic stabilization hope the plan will mprove distribution and control of meat prices all down the line. Lard, cooking and salad oils, shortening, grapefruit juice and orange-grapefruit juice are the foods again returned to rationing and given a point value. 1 Two points a pound is the new value placed on lard, shortening, cooking and salad oil, effective last Monday for Mrs. John Q.

Wholesalers and primary distributors must keep records of all these point-free deliveries.

These inventories are to be filed with local war price and rationing boards by Feb. 10. NAVIGATOR VISITS Waucoma--Second Lt. Matthew J.
