Al Chicago, Public Relations Dl rector Norman Draper of the American Meat Institute, which represents 500 meat-packing companies throughout the country, commented: "Everybody Is gelling rather tired of distortion of truth by Tighe Woods. We wonder whnl'office he may be running lor. Perhaps he has forgotten there was an election Nov. 4." I Woods hns held meetings with consumers In every section of the country since he took office Sept. 1. He said complaints about high prices were'general, but criticism of food costs were most common. Among possibilities of effecting a rollback being studied is the advisability of switching from the present dollars and cents per pound to a margin-type regulation. If Oils were done, butchers would recalculate their ceilings at regular Intervals to reflect any changes up or down In their wholesale costs. This method already Is used in regulations governing pork anil veal, and one official said U would comply with Ihe controls Inw. Irvln b. Rice, assistant chief of the OPS Pood and Restaurant Division, reported that' veal and top grades of beef generally are selling at about 5 per cent bolow ceilings al wholesale. Ife said other grades are selling substantially lower;'at wholesale.
