.PAGE TEN New Bread Price Boost Expected Ten Cent Loaves Of 1940 How Sell As High as 18 Cents By Gaynor Martdox NBA Staff Correspondent NEW VORK, <NEA>—The price of bread probably will go up again within a lev weeks. The rise may be from one lo two cents R loaf. That is the- prediction of .some of the food industry's best-informed ! leaders, supported by business and financial editors. ' Such an would make Hie 10-cent loaf ol 1MO cast 18 cenu in 19*8—a boost of 89 per cent. The prediction was made in Ihe face of a one-cent per loaf reduction which quickly followed inn sharp decline in jjrain price.s, especially wheat, earlier this month, but there sre some \vlio see factors other than grain prices influencing the cost of bread.

Marshall, chairman of the board ol the Continental Hakins Co.. largesi national baking coi:- ceri:, sees no reason for a general increase ripht now. but he rto,-s anticipate ii>cal adjustments in prices based on local difference in labor and distribution costs. "It's no more than reasonable to expect tlie price of bread to follow the price of wheat," says Willis, whose sroup includes General .Mills, Pillsbury, Kcl'.ogg Company. Quaker Oats, Genera) Foods. Standard Brands and Proctor and Gamble. "The present price of bread is based on $2.75 wheat. Every time it jumps 10 cent.s a bushel, Use cost of a hundred pounds of flour goes tip 20 cent.s." Last September the Chicago Journal of Commerce reported th;u federal officials handling our expo; -t program wete resigned to W wheat, probably early this year. This would be 45 per cent above the level on which Willis says current bread prices are basnd. * Willis say; that large food manufacturers raise prices reluctantly, holding off is .long as possible in hope raw material cost.s will drop apain. Marshall, whose Continental nak- Ing Co. operates In 2fl states with 39 plants, says that "right now, I don't see any particular reason for an increase. However. I was wrong last year, when J didn't think die need for wheat would be ai great as It lurnctl out to be. So I may be wrong now wlwn I spy the price of bread may not have to go up «con." HAMILTON. N.
