MAXIMUM PROFITS LIST
The following Is an official list of
commodities with the maximum mar
gins of profit allowed retailers.
The first figures in this table are
for "Cash and Carry" stores; the
figures in the second column are for
"Credit and Delivery" stores.
In all cases the retailer is required
to base his cost on his actual invoice
purchase price without regard to the
actual market value of the gooils at
the time. Inspectors in checking the
prices charged by the dealers
will invariably ask for the invoice
covering the particular merchandise
in question and the cost must corres
pond to the invoice plus any freight
or cartage into the store.
Wheat flour $1.20 per bbl., or lt lb.
in less than mill packages.
Rye flour same as wheat flour.
Victory flour same as wheat flour.
Corn flour lt
Cornmeal . 1G
Corn Grits &. Hominy . 167c
Oatmeal & Rolled Oats 20
25 Barley flour lb
Sugar, all kinds
Lard, lard substitutes
Canned Com Standard.
Canned Tomatoes . . .
Canned Dried Beans .
Dried Fruits-Raisins . .
Eggs per Dozen 1$
Potatoes (original pack
ages all kinds) . . . .
Onions (original pack
Cheese, California, Ore
gon, or Eastern . . 6c1
Ham and Bacon, whole 207c
Rice, bag, lots, all kinds Voi per bag
Rice, less than bag lots 1? per lb.
To arrive at retailer's selling prices,
when any of the percentages as above
are desired, use the following method:
Subtract from the unit of 100, the
percentage to be used; thus, if 257c
Is desired, subtract 25 from 100, leav
' ing 75. Using 75 as a divisor, divide
the cost, which we shall assume to
be $1.50 per dozen, by 75, carrying
the same into two decimals will show
$2.00, which will be your selling price.
You will notice that the difference be
tween the cost of $1.50 per dozen and
$2.00 thus obtained, is 50c1, or 25 on
the selling price.
Any gross margins upon sales to
consumers in excess of the foregoing
margins will be regarded as prima
facie evidence of a violation of the
statute and the rules.
These margins are guides only.
THEY DO NOT CHANGE TILE
RULES. The margin is still limited
to a "reasonable advance over the ac
tual purchas-e price of the particular
goods sold without regard to market
or replacement value."
No commodity covered by this rule
shculil be no!d at a margin above del
ivered cost (actual purchase price,
plus freight to railway terminal in
dealer's city or town) of the particul
ar goods which will yield any greater
profit than the dealer customarily on
joved on the same commodity IN THE
PRE-WAR FERIOD ON AN EVEN
MARKET UNDER FREELY COJv
PETITIVE CONDITIONS. Ilig mar
gins, even if customary during pre
war period are NOT justifiable now.
Unreasonable margins are not excus
ed by lower margins on other trans
actions in the same commodity or in
The margins named are ample to
include all ordinary carrying charges.
If general conditions should later
necessitate the carrying of gools for
a longer period than usual, further
consideration will be given to this

WHEN YOU HAVE A
RIGHT TO COMPLAIN
In nearly every newspaper in the
country the housewife will find a Fair
Price List. This list shows what
foods are most plentiful in the local
markets each day and also gives fair
prices for them.
These prices are determined by
local committees representing whole
sale dealers, retailers, and consumers.
They aim to give the dealer a fair
profit and at the same time to guard
the housewife from being exploited.
But these Fair Price Lists are a
club without a handle unless the
housewife uses them as she should.
To do this, she should clip the Fair
Price List as printed In her paper
each day and take it to market with
her. Then, if she is charged prices
in excess of those quoted on the list
she should immediately bring this
fact to the attention of her dealer.
If he refuses to sell at the prices
quoted, the housewife should at once
report him to her City Food Adminis
trator if there is one, or to her coun
ty Food Administrator. He will take
Buck action as seems to fit the case.
So much the Fair Price List can do,
if rightly handled by the housewife.
But there is another side to it. With
the Fair Price List there is no ex
cuse for the housewife to wait until
the end of the month and her bills
begin to come in, and then complain
because her grocery account is high
er than she thinks it ought to be.
The only time she has a right to
object is the day her dealer asks her
a high price for a certain food com
modity and she knows his price to be
higher than listed in the Fair Price
List quoted for that day.
She has no right to complain just
because her grocery bill is higher than
in pre-war time. Food Is bound to
cost more. Labor is scarce, trans
portation is difficult. The higher cost
of food is part of the war burden that
must be cheerfully . borne by every

complains over prices in America
compare them with those in other
The only time we have a right to
complain in America is when we are
charged prices in excess of those
quoted In the Fair Price List.
