Even if Incomes remain at present levels, he sard, meat prices still will skyrocket. He explained that recent increases in Incomes have not yet had noticable effect on meat prices because the nation Is in a period of flush seasonal meal production. The real push in meat price* will come next Spring and Summer, he predicted, when supplies become scarcer. In other meat developments: Two cabinet members agreed that meat would be'the first Item considered for price controls and rationing, if Congress grants the power. Secretary «> Commerce W.

The program is designed to guarantee poultry growers a ready market for the chickens they move off their farms to save grain. Officials said the new government price still was comparatively low and would have little effect on retail prices. The meat-price analyst said studies showed that the nation's total meat bill—except during wartime price control and rationing- had closely followed fluctuations In consumer incomes during the past 27 years. Thus, he said, if consumer Incomes stop rising, the nation's total meat bill next year won't be anj higher than it is now. People will be paying out about the same- amoun' of money for less meat.
