The action permits higher rates on these commodities to go into effect Wednesday as part of general increases of 6 prr cent on most industrial products and 3 per cent on farm commodities and some ores. • Filed Last Friday The OPA's petition was .tiled last Friday. Citing price ceilings it had established, it asked that no increase be permitted before April 15 in rates on cement, copper, ores, iron and steel scrap, lead ores, lumber, pig iron, rubber scrap, crude sulphur, petroleum products and non-ferrous scrap.
