York, May 15 — (UP) — One dizzy month of the baseball season was "out of this world""tb- day and the 30-day reign of confusion makes the picking of possible pennant winners much more difficult now than when the cam paign began. At the starl it was almost a foregone conclusion that the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox would repeat and bookmakers, here and in other major league cities, listed them as odds-on fa- voriles. Now neilher learn is lop-choice among.Ihe bookies, but the fog is so thick on the baseball horizon that .there is little agreement as to which teams should succeed the Cards and Red Sox as favorites. One New Jersey bookmaker said he was now quoting the Chicago Cubs, Boslon Braves and Brooklyn Dodgers al 2 lo 1 and Ihe Cardinals "a little behind at 11 lo 5." The fact thai Ihe Cards are mor.e than a little behind in the pennant campaign in dead last place, didn't concern him too much, because he said "St. Louis is a notoriously slow starter.' 'He figured the Detroit Tigers as 9 to 5 favorit.s in the American with the Red Sox at 2 to 1 and Ihc New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians at 4 do 1.

Umberto Tcracini, the Communist president of the assembly, as i after talking with President Enrico |dc Nicola, "the Communit party thinks the Christian Democrats should be assigned the formation of a new government."

The greatest question .appeared £o be what representation the . ex- . treme left and the tight would have in a new government. As, leader. of the largest party, De Gasperi 1 was to receive a mandate from De Nicola to form a new government. There was little • 'likelihood that De Gasperi woi^ldjr^efuse, a new bid lo the prime minister's 'office. It was considered likely that he w'ould succeed in -forming, a. new, government.

He repeatedly urged the Italians to show discipline in /• their pconornic crisis. '".

He said he I has asked assistant secretary of slale William Benlon to bring the i transcripts to the hearings.

Day in and day out, no retailer does a better job of k~ec"i)ing prices 'down th'ari yoiW f merchant. No food merchant docs a better job than A&P. • Hv ~ .

If'' we were* tb 'operate our business without any profit at all, this 1 cent would amount to > , a saying of less than 4 cents a day on the entire food bill of the average American family. We sincerely believe that A&P has the lowest cost of distribution of any retail business in the world. When you spend $1.00 in an A&P store, you get 86 cents worth of food and only about 14 cents goes to meet all expenses — wages, taxes, rent, light, heat and the hundreds of other expenses incidental to the stocking and operating of a modern food store —including our .very small profit. Obviously there is little "fat" in such a price structure. Our : operating~costs and pl'ofits 'are already, cut close to the bone. Merchants generally have reduced prices on many items on 'which they were overstocked. In recent weeks we have reduced prices on hundreds of such items. That is common' merchandising practice and has no relation to a general or permanent price reduction, .While many food prices have already been lowered we must recognize that no substantial general reduction in retail food prices is possible until the cost of food to the retailer is reduced. r As any housewife knows, A&P's business lias'been built on the policy of selling quality food at the lowest practical price every day. We pledge to our customers strict adherence to that policy. We will continue to lower, our prices as fast as reductions in costs to us and economies in pur operations permit.^ A&P STORES
