The Cooperative Extension Service of Cornel! University in New York City speculated thai uncertainty over the effect of new grading might push up retail prices of beef and cause chains to cut back their number ol beef specials, at least through late April, It also sain" a decrease in export demand for pork might lend to a small temporary decline in retail prices for pork. Chicken. American cheese and eggs offered economical alternatives to beef. At 88 to 99 cents a pound, even loin end pork chops were a good buy in Buffalo, Jacksonville. Fla., Little Hock, Cincinnati. Con- , cord, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Pittsburgh. : A Phoenix supermarket sold whole broiler-fryers for -14 cents a pound and a Washington, D.C.. market, for 45 cents. They were only -19 cents in Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Dallas and Birmingham, and 53 to 59 coats a pound in eleven other cities. The high oC 69 cents was reported in Boston, Concord, N.H., New York and Honolulu. Even at that price, oven-fried chicken was a good buy for cooks who make their own breading mix with crumbs, herbs, spices and butter or margarine. In Birmingham, a 12 ounce package of sliced American cheese: cost only 88 cents, ami in Phoenix, S9 cents, or about 15 cents for a 2-ounce serving. Even Honolulu's high of $1.29 per package worked out to less than 23 cents per serving, Grade A large eggs dropped to a low of 49 cents a doze.n in a Cincinnati market, and were only 49 to 59 cents in Dallas, Jacksonville, Fla., Phoenix and Los Angeles. Eggs for frying and poaching are best when they are very fresh. Sugar remained high, com- pared with a year ago, when a five-pound bag jumped from 89 cents to $3.60 in New York City. But 21 cities reported prices below $2.00 a bag, compared with last, week's 19 cities. The low of §1.65 in Detroit was four cents below last week's low of $1.69 in Pittsburgh and 10 cents below the previous week's low in Cincinnati. The frogfish has a nautral lure attached to its head.
