That big "break. 1 '' hi loot! price., lhat was supposed to atari about this time is not even around (he corner, Agriculture Department experts said, . Last February the Bureau of Agricultural Economics force jut a probable drop of 15 to 25 i:er cent In food prices during tlie' lajt six months of 1947. But a lot of things liuve happened since then.
