He said the program will have two big advantages: t. It will let consumers know at a glance the ceiling prices on many basic foods they buy. 2. It will relieve grocers of the necessity of calculating in< ceilings on the items that i posted.

The agency said these tesV, have been a success In the marketing areas surrounding Jacksonville, Fla • Fargo, N. D., and Fresno, Calif'. Officials said both consumer and trade groups in those areas have asked that the program be continued. The lists to be posted will be selected from about lo per • cent ' of the approximately 5,0[}Q items sold by grocers. The OPS district offices will pick the items from the best-selling foods in their communities and their importance to the family budget. Fruils anil Vent-tables Exempted Fresh, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables will not be included. These items, making up an estimated 20 per cent of a family's food costs, were exempled by Congress July 1.
