MORE SUGAR SEEN FOR CONSUMERS IN CURRENT YEAR WASHINGTON, Feb. 26—(/Pi—Ten pounds more sugar per person this year than last was virtually as sured today in an announcement alloting 25 pounds for the first nine months. An OPA official said it would be a “safe guess” that the 1947 individual use allowance will be 35 pounds. Jointly the office temporarily controls and the agriculture de partment affirmed that a new ra tion stamp good for 10 pounds will be valid April 1, and announced that another stamp good for 10 pounds will come up July 1. Household consumers already have been allowed five pounds each for the first three months._ ITCH (Scabies) Needs Something Better Than Surface Relief When you are tormented by Itch (Scabies), scratches, camp itch, or 7-year itch, don’t be satisfied with a medicine that can do noth ing more than relieve the surface discomfort.

OUTLOOK BRIGHT FOR PRODUCERS State Marketing Specialist Predicts Good Prices For Meats North Carolina producers have little cause for worry over the cattle market at this time, according to T L. Gwyn, cattle marketing specialist with the N. C. Agricul tue Department. He says that every ■tew choice cattle are produced in North Car olina. Livestock feeders in this State generally grow what is known as “short-fed” cattle,feed ing from 60 to 120 days, with the product grading medium to low good, seldom higher. Pricers for lower grades are holding. “It is reasonable to suppose that producers of these medium to good cattle will continue to receive fair prices, certainly until the season ally heavy fall movements begin in September and October,” says Gwyn. According to figures released a few days ago by the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, the num ber of cattle on feed as of January 1 was considerably larger than a year ago and a great deal greater than the average covering the peri od from 1941 to 1945. Gwyn reminds livestock pro ducers to keep in mind the fact that the greater part of this in crease was in cattle weighing from 600 to 900 pounds. He thinks it is doubtful, therefore, that there has been any great increase in the ton nage of beef produced, and “so long as buying power continues strong, retailers should not be forced to contend with a very much price resistance.” Gwyn expects a sharp drop in cattle prices next fall-particularly if there should be a short corn or hay crop this season. Feeders should look into the feed situation rather thoroughly before making their fall purchases. SHEEP Gwyn says that sheep producers have little tc fear in the way of declining prices. Fed lambs have remained consistently high in price, and these high prices are expected to be reflected in the in comes from the sale of North Car olina lambs this spring and summer. HOGS While prices have declined for pork during the past two months, this has been due to seasonal marketings and the sale of the un finished product, it is hardly proba ble that any serious decline in hog prices will occur until after another year’s production is ready for market. “This could hardly take place before late fall,” says Gwyn. MORE MEAT The decline in exports and Army requirements will increase the supply of all meats for domestic consumption, and the per capita consumption of m e a t during 1947 will be much higher than last year, Gwyn reports, adding, however, that prices are not likely to decline to any great extent from present levels unless there is a general breakdown i n wages and a very considerable decline in other com modity prices. SURPLUS GG PURCHASE PROGRAM Ralph B. Kelly, poultry market ing specialist with the State Depart ment of Agriculture, announces the program for the purchase of frozen eggs as a price support measure. He said that offers of frozen eggs would be receive until further notice for delivery within thirty days following acceptance of of fers. He pointed out that this project, which will be operated by the poultry branch of the production and Marketing Administration, is the frst irect price support opera tion for eggs to be launched’ by the U. S. Agriculture Department this year. This program will sup plement the current purchase pro gram for Great Britian and is being use to provide price support in areas of heaviest prouction of eggs.AQ A? AQ A? AQ A? AQ Q Kelly explained that breakers and freezers who sell frozen eggs to the Government under this purchase announcement must cretify that they have paid producers prices averaging not less than 33 cents per dozen of all the shell eggs they buy. This is the same price as that which processors must pay pro ducers under the drie” egg procure ment program. For frozen eggs as for dried, the 33-cent price will prevail through February, March an April. Frozen eggs offered must be packed in new tin or fiber containers holding 30 pounds each. Frozen eggs obtained by the gov ernment will be held for drying at some future date for foreign ship ment or other disposition designed to keep them from going into do mestic trade channels. Kelly said that through its dried egg procurement program for Great Britain, the U. S. Depart ment of Agriculture has obtained more than 11,670,000 pounds of this produced so far this year to be ap plied against commitments, of a total of 20,000,000 pounds. ADVICE GIVEN HOG GROWERS Hog producers are advised to “finish out” their hogs before plac ing them on the market. John Winfield, State Agriculture Department marketing specialist says that although corn is scarce in some areas of the State, farmers should purchase feed and push their hogs up to 175 to 250 pounds before selling them. “It will be to their advantage to buy feed rather than to sell 100-to 120-pound hogs,” declared Winfield, adding that these weights are now bringing as low as eight dollars per hundred less than the finished weights. There is every indication, he said, that the demand for good hogs will hold until late next fall. REALTY TRANSFERS H. Elizabeth King to George Johnson, two residences between 13th and 14th streets.
