MAY BE ASKED BY CHICAGO RETAIL MEN. FEAR RAISE IN WHEAT RREAD No Occasion for Increase Yet Say Experts—Attorney General Gregory Interested. Chicago, 111.—It has been announc ed here that resolutions calling on congress to place an embargo on the export of wheat and flour as well as on arms and ammunition would be introduced at the next meeting of the Chicago Retail Grocers’ and Butch ers’ association S. Westerfleld, chairman of the trades relations com mittee of the National Association of the retailers, planned to begin in this manner a determined fight against the high cost of flour and in cidentally of home-baked bread. Leaders on exchange predict in some instances that if the price of wheat went much higher there would be a general turning to corn in place of wheat bread, both in this country and in Europe. Other dealers were of a contrary opinion and asserted that bakers’ complaints were unwar ranted—that a barrel of flour costing $7 would make 275 loaves of bread, for which the retailer collected $13.75 at .5 cents a loaf. Who got the dif ference. was asked, and the conclu sion was drawn that wheat was still relatively cheap. Gregory Interested. Washington, D. C.—Department of ficials expressed interest in reports that the price of a loaf of bread was about to jump from 5 to 6 cents in New York. Chicago and possibly other large cities. No complaints have reached the department, however, and no action is in immediate pros pect. Attorney General Gregory has kept a close watch upon any efforts to raise the cost of living through com bination of producers in any line, and it is considered certain that a rise In bread would be looked into at once.
