N«ws, Frederick, MUL, We4n*Mtey. Iteemntar », Weather To Aid Housewife In Grocery NEW YORK, »ec. 5 W--The '·weather is coming to the aid of the housewife where it helps--in the grocery store. First benefit she's likely to see wfll be cheaper eggs. But the food, industry say that pork is getting cheaper and predicts that poultry is heading in the same direction. And a long-distance glimmering hope is that the record cattle population will move to market in great- tr volume as the weather-tightened supply of feed tempts farmers to sell stock. In the case of eggs, it's the unusually mild weather. Poultry raisers say that has fooled the hens into keeping right on laying eggs. Prices on the wholesale markets broke sharply under the weight of the big supply. On the Chicago Merchantile Exchange, prices broke three to seven cents a dozen Monday, the sharpest break this year. In New York, Acts AT ONCE to Relieve CAUSED BY COLDS For years thousands of doctors have prescribed PERTDSSDJ. It acts AT ONCE not only to relieve coughing due to colds but it also "loosens up" phlegm and makes it easier to raise. pjsrussra is entirely free from any harmful ingredients of any kind. Kiddies love its pleasant taste -- like "candy on a spoon"! ^PERTUSSIN'- wholesale prices ar* 12 to 13 cents below a week ago. In the case. of pork, It's past weather that is sending hogs to market in greater volume than since 1944. In many parts of the hog-growing regions feed conditions aren't too good. Bad weather last summer accounts for wet corn. That won't hold over the winter. So, farmers fattened hogs quickly and decided not to buy feed for them later on when their own wet corn is gone. In the southwest cattle country, It wasn't too much moisture, it was too little^ Many of the southwest's ranges are short of grass this winter. That means that more of the nation's big cattle population must be fed on grain. That's expensive and means higher costs of producing beef. But it also could mean that some farmers and feeders will move cattle to market earlier. The nation's livestock population is around 180 million, government officials estimate. This is four million more than a year ago. A greater portion of cattle than usual is being held off the market this fall --partly to build up breeding stock, but partly in expectations of high prices next year. Those being held for higher price*, howev«e, may MR vtw ww fe«d shortage which aome predict. Feed prices are already going up. For example, soybean meal sold at $03 a ton in August and now brings $74 a ton. Some stock feeders are turning to Canada's frostbitten wheat for their animals. The weather-nipped wheat sells for 16 cents a bushel less then domestic wheat. Sugar prices are .shaky, too, according to the industry. Raw sugar now sell* in New York at $5.85 a hundred pounds, against $6.50 two weeks ago. The world supply of sugar is large, and U. S. consumption" this year fell well below last year's heavy demand. And California's grape crop-15 per cent larger than a year ago --is pouring into the groceries at lower prices. New Yorkers pay about five cents a pound less this year than last. The grocers aren't complaining, either. Retailers say Thanksgiving food sales brought them the most Jollars in history. With another big day of feasting coming up in three weeks, grocers are getting ready for v.-hat they predict will be their biggest Christmas. No. 10 Downing Street has been the headquarters for British political power since 1735. Weather Low Grade But First Concert Was High Caliber By BETTY SULLIVAN Low grade weather and high caliber entertainment, following tradition, Tuesday evening opened the Community Concert season. Alice Howland, mezzo soprano, proved an attractive personality whose mas- 'tery of her voice and sound musical training provided a program of exceptional entertainment. The weather man, in the past, consistently uncooperative in the matter of providing pleasant concert nights, outdid himself with drenching rains, especially heavy in the hour before the 8:30 curtain time. Despite the uncompromising vileness of the night, a fair sized audience was in the high school auditorium to hear Miss Howland. A young singer who has won plaudits from the critics, Miss Howland already has had impressive concert experience. She has sung leading roles in the American and world premieres of works by Virgil Thomson, Norman Dello Joio. Paul Creston, Lukas Foss and many others. I Tuesday evening Miss Howland reached her audience most effectively in two opera excerpts, the beloved aria "My Heart at Thy Sweet Voice" from Sansson et Delila, and the "Habanera" from Carmen. Kept a little under the customary two hours, the recital opened with 'To the Queen of Heaven" by Dunhill; "Over the Mountain," Quilter; "The Dashing White Sergeant," Bishop, and an aria from Orfeo, by Gluck. The second group was "Allersee- len," Strauss; "Vergebliches Stand- chen," Brahms; "Mignon," Wolf; "Fruhllngslied," Mendelssohn-Bartholdy; and a short love song by Brahms as encore. The Saint-Saens aria* which drew the evening's heaviest applause, concluded the first portion of the set program and Miss Howland gave as encore a bit of Carmen. Theodore Schaefer, accompanist, played as solos Chopin's "Nocturn in' E Flat," "Toccata" by Poulenc and concluded with an Eighteenth Century Minuet. 1 Grouping Khort songs to English Miss Howland lightened the pro gram after intermission with such amusing pieces as "Love in the Dictionary" by Dougherty which she described as based on the "standard, stupid" definition of the word in the Funk and Wagnalls dictionary. She also sang in the same group "I Know a Maiden Fair," Van Vactor; "The Seal Man,' Clarke; "The Daisies," Barger; and "May, the Maiden," Carpenter. The concluding numbers were "To the Children," Rachmaninoff "St. John's Eve," Grieg; "May-day Carol," Deems Taylor; "Charlie is My Darling," Quilter;'and "Oliver Cromwell," Britten. A Scottish folk song was the last encore.

Stassen sailed from New York today for a conference with Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower in Paris that might determine whether Stassen bids for the 1952 Republican presidential nomination.
