Patapa News, 194f Prices (Continued From Fat? 1) tfclfeased last week, was 155.8. Last June It Was 133.3. Since June fats and oils have risen 58.6 percent. Meat 522 percent, beverages 50.6 percent and sugar and sweets 31.6 percent. Trade groups criticize the various indices as unrealistic because, they say, the indices compute prices during the OPA period on the basis of ceilings when real prices in "black ttterkets" were above ceilings. Became whenever illegal prices Were paid they were not recorded, there is no way of telling how present prices compared with "black market" prices. However, prices of Some commodities which were not, controlled a year ago are higher now than then. Meat was the core of the OPA battle a year ago. The word, but not the taste was on everybody's tongue. In New York, hamburger which was 29 cents a pound, when available, a year ago is now 47 per cent. Loin of pork which sold at, 47 cents now brings 62 cents. Down the retail level, newspaper advertisements today contrast .sharply with a year ago. Then, when the incut shortage was at its height-. chain stores were endeavoring to fnlice customers with poultry a'ul fish. Meat was offered mostly in tins. Cue year aso a popular brand of j soap sold at three bars for 18 cents. but the advertisement carried Uic Words "when available." Today the soap is 10 rents a bar with no remarks about, availability. .Are conditions "betcr" or "worse" today than tinder the CPA? Advocates of OPA argue that prices in legitimate markets had risen spectacularly, that, only in certain items have they shown signs of declining, and that supply increases in these latter goods would have developed just ;is quickly under OPA. Opponents of OPA argue that goods are more easily available, that the crooked and sisistcr "black market" has been eliminated and that the OPA was unenforceable in peac? time because it lacked the backing of war time patriotism.

A piece of string Which "almost" fit with a piece found' at the scene of the crime, car tracks similar to those of a car borrowed .by Thomas, and damage to the car which could .have occurred at the scene of the crime. "... It Is not sufficient that the circumstances coincide with, account for and therefore render pro'o- rtble the guilt of the defendant; they must exclude every other reasonable hypothesis except that of the defendant's guilt, and unless thry do so beyond reasonable doubt, the evidence is not sufficient to \varant a conviction," the opinion held. The Appeal Court Saturday also denied rehearing for Dr. W. R. Newton of Cameron, given a two- year conviction on a charge of assault to' murder Dr. Hunt a year before the slaying. Dr Newton's name had frequently come up during the Thomas trinls, but court records showed him to be at home on the night of the slaylug. • .
