Last August Is Seen Aa
Wasihngton, Dec, 24. Expecta
tion of a decline in retail food pricos
beginning between January 1 and
March 1, was expressed by Attorney
General Palmer in a statement sum
ming up the efforts of the Govern
ment to date in forcing down the
cost of living.
"Xhe cost of living, already under
control," said the Attorney General,
"can be reduced if every one who
prOduees will produce his utmost, if
those who buy and consume will save
and eliminate extravagance, and if
all honest people will join with the
department of justice in . stamping
out profiteering and hoarding."
Prices Coming Down.'
Explaining that a downward trend
in TefaU food prices ordinarily was
shown during the first two months
f the year, Mr. Talmer said it was.
the hope of the Gevernmcht "that
this trend, will be accelerated this
year by the campaign initiated by
the Gevernment, which is just now
getting well under way."
Although statistics compiled an
nually by the Government show that
in previous years retail food prices
increased during the fall months, Mr.
Palmer said that "r,inCe August, this
year, such prices had been maintain
ed practically, stationary."
Deal With Profiteers.
Only aince October '22. when ne-
cessary amendments to the Lever
food control act were passed, has it
been possible to deal effectively with
all cases af profiteering and hoard
ing. From October '22 to date 179
