W By JAMES R. KING United Press International P lk»im attperfnarkats are re* Striding beef sales, some butchers said they were sold out of red beef, and New York City Consumer Affairs Cortimis- sioner Betty Furness advised shoppers Sunday: "Forget about buying beef until this hysteria has passed." Treasury Secretary George P. Shultz said it "remains to be seen" whether the ceiling on retail beef prices Will be lifted earlier than the projected Sept. 12 deadline. Cattlemen and meat packers have said the price ceiling is causing the shortage by making it impossible for the industry to pass on to the consumer increased costs in getting cattle to market. Shultz, questioned Sunday on ABC television's * 'Issues and Answers," was asked if President Nixon might call off the price freeze early. "Well, that remains to be seen," Shultz said. He denied his statement means the administration is retreating from its position that the freeze should stay on. Customers Overbuying "It is just a recognition of the fact that lots of questions have been raised and lots of pressure has been put on," Shultz said. West Coast markets reported shortages, limits on sales, and in some cases no beef at all during the weekend. A "first come, first served, as long as it lasts," policy was in effect at Safeway, an employe in Los Angeles said. In the San Francisco area, j shoppers emptied some super* market shelves of beef while other stores began rationing supplies for the first time. Fry's Supermarket in nearby San Jose was completely sold out of beef, and major appliance stores in the suburb reported a waiting list for freezers. "People are overbuying; that's the problem," said At franzi, general manager of Petrini's Butcher Shop in San Francisco. In Walnut Creek, Calif., the consumer-controlled Co-op food market began rationing meat at four steaks, one roast and two chickens per customer. In Indianapolis, the Stark Wetzel Food Co. closed because of the shortage and laid off 25 workers indefinitely. And in New York, where grocery stores have begun to run out of various kinds of beef. Miss Furness Said she believed the shortage was "totally manipulated by the meat p _ . people," but she said e the price freeze early would solve anything. "What we have now is less beef at ceiling prices," she said. "But if the ceiling were lifted, we'd have less beef at Gas Sh I rtage Is Most enver DENVER (UPI) - Chuck Stiesmeyer looked at the three rows of automobiles lined up for gasoline at his Texaco service station Sunday and said the eight fuel pumps would be dry within the hour. Across the city other pumps were already dry or were not opened at all. "When we opened seven months ago, we had to hustle business," said Stiesmeyer. "We offered free car washes and we vacuumed out cars. Now we have to turn business away, especially on Sundays. "The lines are nothing like they'll be pretty soon when we have to close down and the people start coming home from church. They really get mad when we put up the 'no gas* sign." The weekday gasoline shortage in Denver that forces stations to close after selling daily allotments skyrockets on Sundays, when only a handful of stations remaiti open. Fifty gas stations were closed within seven-mile radius of Sties- meyer's Texaco Sunday. Ordered Ad Drive The American Automobile Association (AAA) has called Denver's fuel situation the worst in the nation. Gov. John Vanderhoof last week ordered a KNOX COUNTY 4 ft 5p V KNOXVILLE FAIRGROUNDS Sponsored by KNOXVILLE JAYCEES crash out-of-state advertising program downplaying the problem in an effort to avoid $100 million in lost tourism this summer. One Denver station manager has passed out identification cards to regular customers and will not sell to strangers. City stations are out of lock-caps for gas tanks. The lock-caps have been bought by motorists fearful of having fuel siphoned away. Oil industry officials have blamed the shortage on an unexpected increase in the state's population and lack of adequate pipelines to bring gasoline into Colorado. "They can't believe the gas shortage," said Stiesmeyer, assistant station manager. "I had one person who had a big car drive back in the next week in a compact and say, 'look at my new car/ Imports are selling like crazy because of their mileage. "We've almost had fights here on Sundays, especially when we tell them we're shutting down and that there's no more gas. Our other business is off. We don't have CHARGE • A Front Mporcrf# purchase pric* time to sell tires because we're too busy selling gas." Sees Long Shortage A few miles away, Jack Charrin waited in a line of cars to buy gas at a Conoco station at a busy intersection in south Denver. Charrin works for Conoco in Denver and predicts the shortage will last "at least two or three more years. "The oil companies aren't holding out on gas/' he said. "If the gas was available there wouldn't be a shortage. The problem is pipeline capacity. There will be a shortage in Denver every summer until pipeline capacity matches the tourist demand." Behind him, Bill Speckman sat in his yellow convertible and said he'd been forced to get gas on Sunday because he had put off refueling during the week. "I usually don't try and buy gas on Sundays," he said. "But I haven't had any trouble getting it during the week. "I have a neighbor who has a Cadillac sitting in his driveway. He doesn't drive it anymore." Ice, But No Snow Few Indonesians ever see snow, but a growing number are going ice skating. An indoor rink opened recently in Djakarta and proved an instant hit. The 10,764-square-foot rink is the only one in Southeast Asia except for a smaller one in Taiwan. take time after the freeze ends for the beef to be prepared for market. Ne# York butcher shot* owner David Kaltdr said, "There's not an ounce of beef in the store—and you can't by a flickers worth of beef at ceiling price in the city-not a nickel's worth." the shortage was also affect- jobs of meat packers and associated industries in some areas. Between 400 and $00 high prices." She said it will butchers were laid off at two ! supermarket chains in Pitts* burg, and Edward Steinmetz. president of the local meatcut* ters union said, "we could be in for more layoffs because of the critical meat situation." < In Baltimore, a local official of the same union, Jerry R. Menapace, said the shortage could affect the jobs of 800 butchers and fn San Francisco, butchers union Spokesman Allen Coe said about a third of his 3,000 members have been laid off. . — . 7HIS REPORT TO BE RETURNED TO DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY OFFICEOF REVENUE SHARING . 1900 PENNSYLVANIA AVE; N.W.
