Sept. 11. (UP)—The price of NOBS rose lo a new all-time high in Chicago, the world's biggest meal packing ccnler today, while Ihe nation's relnll food bill spirulcd lowiirtl new peaks. Pork chops and bacon on Ihc hoof sold for $30.50 per hundred pounds »l Chicago's sprawling Union Stockyards. The price broke the previous Chicago high of $30 paid last Feb. 25. Hog prices in genera! were 75 ccnls higher than yesterday's average. Prices for nearly every basic commodity, Including some of those used in the manufacture of clolh- ini!. shot upward on exchanges lhrou(!hout the counlry ycslcrday. New record highs were established for wheat, corn, and oats. Hogs hit new all time highs at Sioux Cily, la., and Omaha. Neb. Several livestock markets rci>orl- ed all time highs on hogs but market analysis said meal prices would really skyrocket when Ihe full cf- fccl of Ihe poor corn crop is fell by Ihc nation's slock raisers. Several expcrU predicted lhat wouldn't occur until nexl year, however. They reasoned lhat Ihe lack of corn would force many farmers lo sell their cattle, hogs and sheep al short weight early this Pall. That would increase the supply of meat during the Fall and Winter lending- lo depress prices or at least hold them steady. Bui Ihe big pay-off on the corn shortage would come in the Spring. The short-selling of stock this Fall will make them scarce later on and prices will zoom, the experts said. George R. Dressier, spokesman for the National Association of Meat Dealers, said he could not "subscribe to Ihc claims that there's going Lo be a terrific meat shortage." •Prices for future deliveries of Ijulter, eggs aiid onions rose again on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange yesterday with some sell egg and v bullcr futures hilling new records. Bakers warned lhat higher egg and butler costs, along willi increased prices on flour, would force llicni l\ raise their prices on bread soon. . r Increases in the 'relail prices of . clolhinjj; including shoes»_were forecast by higher market prices for wool, hides, cotton and rubber.
