Popular pork cuts hd si.'oked items also were low- in many places, and many stores Iduced frying and broiling chick- ns I Beef, lamb and veal were gen- fally unchanged, while butter hntinued its weeks-long climb, jivancing one to three cents a bund. I Top grade eggs now have drop- fed about 14 cents a dozen at re- fil since the day after Thanks- 'ing Day, with around five cents r the reduction occurring Since 1st weekend. By the middle of this leek, however, the wholesale larket had turned upward slight- f. indicating that the price slide ad been arrested at least tempor- Hly- (The reduction was not as sharp Tsome places where prices hadn't limbed as high to begin with.; I There were four main factors \c the big drop, which was the harpest tnis year H. Demand lapsed after Thanks- living Day as consumers cut back In their food buying generally. 2.

Wholesale food prices, as, measured by the Dun and Bradstreet food index, this week dropped be- low the ywr-aRO level for the tirst time since early April of 1050.
