TUESDAY, NOVKMBER 26, 1947 BLYTHF,V1U,K (ARK.) COURIER NKWS Plentiful and Cheaper Than Meat, Turkey a Comparatively Good Buy for Thanksgiving Bjr DOROTHY WILLIAMS United Preu Stiff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Nov. 25 CU.P.)—Turkey should l# a comparatively good buy for your Thanksgiving dinner, it is plenum* and relatively cheap, as things go these days. So are the trimmings. Official figures indicate that turkey will cost about the same as last year—between 4t» and SI cents » pound, depending upon where I'ou live and where you shop. + _____ keys, weighing more than 20 pounds, sold as low as 39 cents per pound. And once again some butchers will lie offering halves and quarters of these giant-sized turkeys for the uook with the small family or the apaitment-slzed oven. Roasting hens should be another good buy. They are expected to sell (or between 53 and 69 cents a. pound. Poultry ol all klnos will be a far more economical holiday food than a roast. The Bureau of tabor Statistics lists rib roast as selling for 54,8 cents per jwund on tile national average, compared with 55.9 cents last year. Comparative prices show thai meat in general is about 15 per cent higher than lust Thanksgiving time and about EO per cent higher than i during the days of price control. I'ork Best Buy Pork—Made more plentiful because of the shipment of hogs to market under the grain conservation program—Is the best meat buy. It is about 23 per cent cheaper than In mid-September. Beef Is slightly ^ lower, too. -^ But the increase in Turkey production—it is now 4.1 pounds per person annually compared with 2.6 pounds before the war—has taken the Thanksgiving fowl out of the luxury class. Cranberry production also is up— 1101 as high as last year, but far above the pre-war average. And cranberry pi Ices are expected to be below last year's comparatively low figure. There will be fewer onions, but an abundance of cauliflower, cub- y^Ue''t,u* $*". Hawley Resigns VA Medico/ Director WASHINGTON Nov. 25 (UP) Gen. Omar N.
