HUinlly he said they ought to pay the real cost of the food they eat But after the cuts—which slash the subsidies from more (han a billion dollars n year (o 700 millions— the housewives still won't be paying the full cost of basic foods when they po marketing. That's one reason many observers think Ilutier may plan further cuts in later budgets. Opposition Expected But such action probably Is opposed by nullcr's fellow cabinet minister, Locd Woolton—the mm who did most (o develop (he subsidies when he was Britain's wartime food minister. Tlie food ministry never says just how (he subsidies are distributed hut Woolton used the taxpayers' money to keep down the prices of. bread, flour, meat, bacon, ham '.its, cheese, eggs, milk, sugar and As n result of ills administration — and despite submarine warfare nnd rislrie prices -_ Britain came Inrourm the lean war vear fit and well fed.

The Office of Price Stabilization (OPSl came lip with the formula a yesterday but did not make its details public, it was believed to involve authority to raise steel prices between $2 and }3 a ton. The CIO's United Steelworkers, who have fixed March 23 for tho start of a nationwide strike, arc demanding a wage boost of 18 1/2 cents nn hour, steel leaders said they can't pay that much money without authority to raise prices.

The OPS formula was based on Mrs. C G Rertman, executive secretary o! the Mississippi County Tuberculosis Association, was in Luxora yesterday afternoon to discuss the coming x-ray clinics at a Parent-Tcacher.s Association meeting.
