1WTTBSBAT JTJLYII, Rising Income to Keep Grocery Volume High Cheese, Eggs Can Be Used To Ease Shortage of Meat By SAM DAWSOX NEW YORK, July X. VPi~ Bumper harvests are In prospect In many parts of the country. But food processor* tr» counting on the rising total of personal Incomes to keep eale* volume high In the nation's 4*'irocery stores this winter. Amerlcaiii lik« to eat well. The better their incomes the more they spend, as a rule, at the grocery. Housewives swing up and down the food economy scale as their husband's take-home pay rises or falls. Full employment and higher wage scales, the food processors *ay, should take care of the new big craps, although a few see hopes that abundance may mean that price* can drop nearer to the pre- Korean level. |4S .Million * Year Retail grocery sales are now reported running at an annual rate of aromid $35 billion. Even price resistance to some more expensive Items hasn't cut total purchases of consumers back much this summer, spokesmen for the grocery trade say. The large retaij units report dollar volume running about seven per cent above last year, largely reflecting post-Korean price rises. Wholesale grocers, however, are having theii inventory problems, similar to those in other industries, but not nearly so acute as in some. ' "The only burdensome inventories threatened in foods," says, the American Institute of Food Distribution, "3r£ among some canners wfond freezers But analysis of the. TfstartHng increase in consumer buying power emphasizes that any extreme pressuie on food prices IIILIJ be due to merchandising blunders. 1 ' Grocers are selling to so many more families with annual incomes over $3.000 that there has been an unexpected increase in demands for better quality foods in wider variety, the Institute holds. Federal statistics would seem to bear this out, both zi to how incomes have grown and widened out through the economy, and as to how Americans spend their money in the grocery. <; Mor« Familie., Higher Pay Ten years ago 5.8 miilion families had annual incomes of more than 13,000. but today 27 million families have. Even talcing into account the higher prices, this stil leaves a large total Income to be «pent at the grocery. And, also there are 14 million more families .now than In 1941 in th« nation That- accounts for much of the growth in retail food store sales from S12.5 billion In 1941 to nearly 133 billion today. Federal Reserve Board figures show how family food buying tn- J|l crease* a* Incomes gq'^up. ^Families ^ with Income* above $3.000 "spem about twice a« much &£ those with less than tl,000, although the latter group hands over 74 per cent of Its income to the grocer. For every dollar that the family with fha lowest income spends, family in the »3,000. to $4.000 class spends »1^0. while families with Incomes of J7.5W and over spend $2.63 at the grocers for each si the lowest group spends. Only 17 pel cent of the highest group's incom< goes for food, however. Rise in industrial pay scale* has played a major role In making America as a whole eat better — Dried Beef Mixture Maket Special Sandwich For Luncheon, Treat Serve this dellcloui dried bee landwich specialty to your - 1 -* ladies as part of a luncheon plate. ^ to your children lor & special treat.

Lard Is Good, Cheap Shortening Honremakcrs who are up on their tots know that lard is an excellent shortening for many ccoking purposes—and economical, too. It's lops for pie crusts, biscmts, bread doughnuts, cookies, some kinds of cakes and deep fat frying. Spe. k- ins of pie.i every season is pie season, but with the appearance of more Iresn fruit on the market, we turn to pie-making with new enthusiasm. Here are a few tricks tor making your lard-made pie crusts look like those in the fancy pastry shop windows. That shiny look is acquired bj, brushing the top crust with a little milk before baking. Sugarj topped pies are brushed with milk, then sprinkled with granulated sugar before baking. When yon expect guests with children, why not put breakables away. Then you won't embarrass everybody it the children should touch and drop. ?A(5S ELEYBN Planning Is Quick Way of Cooking Many Vegetables Panning is a quick and easy, top- of-stove way to cook many vegetables, it's thrifty of food values, loo. for the vegetable Is cooked and served in its own Juices with Jusl enough fnl to season.
