Canning Lid Supply Keeps Store Busy PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Dorsey Fooks says he's hardly had time to sit down since word leaked out that he has thousands of home canning lids for sale. They're calling from all over," said Fooks, owner of a Western Auto store in suburban Morton, Pa. "These people are calling in orders from as far away as Washington state, Vermont and Florida. And we've had people in the store from North Carolina, Kansas and Iowa." Local newspapers reported last week that Fooks had recieved a shipment of 30,000 lids and was expecting more. "I have no idea what's ahead for me," said Fooks in an interview. He said he sold about 9,000 lids in three hours Saturday morning, and by noon the store still was jammed with customers. The House small busines subcommittee has held hearings on the nationwide shortage of home canning lids. Government in- vestioators are lookino into possible leaks in the distribution chain and allegations that the industry may oe restricting the number of lids that reach retail stores. "The customers can't understand how I got them," Fooks said. "I ordered these last year from a distributor. They put you on a list, and my name finally came up at the right time." Fooks said he sold his original shipment of 30.000 lids in five days and received another 48,000 Friday. o"i sell the lids for 89 cnts a dozen," he said. "But. I know some merchants who've bought from me and turn around and sell the lids for well over $1 a dozen." Fooks described his profit as "marginal." "I know the OCA (U.S. Office of Consumer Affairs) says cost of a quarter a dozen is about average. But, that may be for the government when it buys up huge supplies . . . Retail merchants can't get the lids that cheaply." he said. Large Brown Egg Price Climbs 6 Cents on Dozen BOSTON - tfi - Market experts say- large brown eggs are up to six cents a dozen more expensive on the wholesale market than a week ago because of a heat wave that killed about 500,000 hens last weekend. The hikes soon will be felt at the retail level but will not last long because white eggs can be brought into the area, according to market observers. "You can't have birds die like that and not miss the eggs." said William Curtin ? Boston market reporter for the state Agi- cultare Department. Sources close to the president said the arms embargo would be placed on weapons used by ground and air forces, but that naval armaments would not be included. Giscard d'Estaing, flanked by President Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire at a news conference .ending a three-day visit, said France and Zaire condemned apartheid in South Africa in the same terms. "On this condemnation, accompanied of course with an interruption of all arms deliveries to South Africa, as well as Namibia, our positions are totally alike," Giscard d'Estaing said. France has been one of South Africa's principal arms suppliers, selling the South Africans jet aircraft, helicopters, submarines, missiles, and armored vehicles. Asked how arms supplies would be stopped, Giscard d'Estaing replied, "There are methods." "We will not sell any more arms to South Africa. I gave a directive along these lines to the government," he said. Giscard d'Estaing said France and Zaire were also concerened about Namibia -- the territory also known as South- West Africa to which South Africa has refused to grant independence despite pressure from the United Nations. Gov. Bennett Asks Union Chief Visit TOPEKA. Kan. (AP) - Gov. Robert F. Bennett has invited the president of the International Longshoremen's Association to come to Kansas for a first-hand look at the situation caused by that organization's threats to refuse loading of wheat on ships bound for Russia. In a letter to Thomas W. Gleason at the union's headquaters in New York, Bennett told the Longshoremen official "there are many here who would be more than happy to explain the importance of grain exports to our country. "We in Kansas will continue to do everything in our power in attempting to assure the orderly marketing of our products," the governor added. Bennett said it is obvious that any tampering with the orderly export of wheat will have a disastrous effect on agriculture as a whole. He said this in turn can only adversely affect working men and women. "I hasten to remind you the union's action will have a rippling effect on the economy, with adverse consequences not only for the farmer but for many segments of organized labor as well," Bennett told Gleason. "The truckers, the railroad workers and many other segments of our labor force will ultimately suffer." The Kansas governor said arguments that exports of U. S. wheat will raise the cost of bread products ring hollow in the face of facts. Gleason's office said there would be no comment until the letter was receive^. PARIS (AP)--The Japanese government should take an active role in towering the country's annual production growth from 10 per cent to as low as 5 per cent, the Organization for Economic Cooperation said Sunday. The organization, which includes most industrial powers, said in its annual review of the Japanese economy: "The oil crisis and the current deep recession have brought to light some of the frailties and inadequacies inherent in the explosive growth of the Japanese economy over the last 20 years." It said Japan has brought inflation under control and achieved equilibrium in its balance of payments but at the expense of its strongest recession since World War II. "There are indications that a broad consensus has developed in favor of a change in the pattern of growth toward greater emphasis on collective needs, social welfare and protection of natural resources and the environment," the organization said. It cited Japan's scarcity of natural re- sources in suggesting the lowered growth rate. FINAL CLEARANCE Ladies Shoes V*« Oft 7N T»2I.M 0 t i f 228CopitolSt. Pay Yourself First.
