RETAIL PRICES ARE
TO BE SEEN AFTER
Food Administration Will Do All It
Can to Aid Consumer to Get Beneit,
of Low Prices to the Itetailer.
Washington, Oct. 18.-FPood admin
istrator Hoover gave notice to the
public tonight that "the corner has
been turned" in high food prices and
that most of the' essential conmiodi
ties should continue to show reduc
tion bettween now and the end of the
year. At the sanme time he pointed
out that retail prices are not. going
down in accord with wholesale re
ductions, and intimated that the
consumer herself might correct this
by bringing proper measures to lear.
To aid the public in dealing with
retailers who continue to exhort war
proflts, the food adiniiistration now
is collecting wholesale prices of all
staples In 700 cities and soon will be
gin publishing them weekly for com
parison with retail figures.
Wit hout further authority from
congress Mr. Hoover said thie govern
ment is powerless to control retailers
except those doing a business of
more than $100,000 a year. le did
not care to discuss the question of
whether congress would be asked to
extend his authority saying he want
ed to give the retailers a chance
As an Illustration of how the price
to the consumer is keeping ill), a
statement issued by the adninistra
tor said beef now is selling in Cil
eago at 1.1 1-2 cents a poumnds, com
pared with 16 cents in July, while
the average retail price of round
steak now is 31 cents compare(d with
27 cents in July. The millers' price
for first patnt flour In .Ju te bags
range from $10 to $10.70, but the av
erage retail price is $13.77, or, the ad
ministrator says from $1.50 to $2 more
than the wholesale figure warrants.
Sugair should sell from S to 8 1-2 cents
a pound inl spite of the present tem
porary shortage, as the wholesale
filgures have not advanced.
Now that it is all over, .\r. li'Over
said, it limay be admitted that in Sep
temhiber the countiry faced a serious
shortage of flour and New York
City at one time was down to a 3t6
hotir sipplly. Virtually the same (,on
dition ievailed in Philadelhiiii and
ohir conistimoing centers.
Not iee was given at tlie food ad
