Last Wednesday, about midnight. Consumers Super-Market was surrounded by policemen armed with tommy guns, sawed-oif shot-guns, rotten tomatoes and ripe turnips, and at a pre-arranged signal-the cops moved in through the back windows. In the dim light they closed in on villians Tschetter and Becker, caught in the act of whacking prices to ribbons.

I ! Sfoolie Tipped Us Off On Crime": Boekelman City Police Lauded For Alert Work . Following the arrests of Tschetter and Becker, Police Chief Boekelman issued the following statement: "The Ridiculous price-cutting these two knaves plan to do is strictly against th» Fair Prices Act of 1860. We can't have 'em selling a 4-pound pail of Decker's Lard for 98c, and giving away 6 bottles of Del Monte Catsup (that's the kind my wife buys) for 99'/z cents is strictly verboien. I want to compliment the boys on the force for their work — they didn't eat up more'n six boxes of apples, 8 cases of potato chips, and 22 pounds of weiners while on this raid." COMPETITOR COMMENTS Asked for comment oh this vicious plot to sell stuff at prices so ridiculous the buying public would go slap-happy, Chris Wall* ukait, manager of the Council Oak Store issued this statement: "I like Joe Tschetter, he's always been a fine competitor, and I hate to see him get in-the clutches of the Law like this.
