M M OHK thnn six months ago, when fond' administrators new nl IVI ",c J0' wcru "'''"'"'"g price boosting among retail food dealers in this city, Tha Evening World urged a practical plnn of art ion a follows: l'rlat Huts of fair current prices for common articles of foot) anil post regularly where ull may read. DlicJplIno the retail price booster br onlerfnir wholesale dealers to itop hit supplies. rillory thn food profiteer with publicity, that the politic Bar amid him and honest dealers nit In judgment on him. The Evening World did more. It offered n concrete demonstration of what such a progrntnmo could accomplish by ilnnlf pnblinliing a tri weekly tnble of fnir curro:it prices which rnlnil food dcnlcr in New York should ho expected to charge for different grades nnd cuts of onnd ment and for nmo twenty other common food products. The Evening World nUo showed Federal, Slntn nnd IocrI foi-1 boards the subhtnp'isl help Hnd eo-operntion they could count on from organizations like its own Housewives' Protective Association in keep ing watch on retail food price nnd visiting with publicity and pun ishment any dealer found to lw deliberately overcharging his eus tumors. t Friday of Inst week the. Federal Food Administration at Wash ing officially announced Us "definite measures to limit retail foo-1 prices" by nation-wide action along the following linns: "Throuch the mnlliim of stnnrtarillrcd 'fair price lists,' fo be published In practically every bnrnlet, town and city In the country. Food Administration odlclnln expect to protect the ( consumer from unreasonable price odvnners. "In every community the Flood Administration will estab lish prlco Interpreting committers composed of reprosrutatlvcs of the wholesalers, retailers and consumers. This Inter preting board will ascertain fair retail prices on the basic commodities that comprise a largo part of the people's diet. The final fair prices will bo widely published. Nows ' papers In every city and county will bo asked to co-operate, setting asldo a particular position In a prominent pluco on the same, day each week, running the lists with cousplcuous headlines. "Consumers will be asked to report to their Food Admin istrator any stores charging morn than thn announced prices. Investigation of these reports will glvo the Food Administra tion a basis upon which to work In separating tho patriotic dealer from the profiteer. An Indirect control over tho retail stores may bo exercised by cutting off supplies nt the source Instructing licensed wholesale dealers to sever busi ness relations with tho firms which exact more than a reason able charge." After six months, then, the programme advocated by The Evening World for New York becomes, in ita every feature, the programme by which Federal authority will protect American consumers throughout the country from the rapacity of retail food profiteers. What haB been accomplished toward curbing one form of prof peering can be thn more confidently undertaken in the cbjo of another. liven more formidablo thnn I he item of food in miiny New York family budgets', as Tho Evening World has pointed out, has beconw he item of rent. In thia city landlord profiteers are showing themselves n' ruthless as food profiteers toward incomes already heavily taxed by war demands. Against rent profiteering, m against food profiteering, The Eve ning VorId is prepared to fight until it wins. Against tho landbrd profiteer it urges nlso its programme of defense: First, a prompt and open showdown of facts aSid figures bearing on rents, taxes nnd realty conditions in this city, with a view to determining at whnt point the raising of rents ceases to be fair and equitable nnd becomes profiteering. Since rents depend upon local causes and conditions, let municipal authority come forward and seek for just stand ards by which advance of rents can be measured and con trolled. What Congress has sought to do toward regulating rents in war time in the District of Columbia, let the Board of Aldermen set about doing for the rcnt-pnycra of New York who, with their families, comprise tome 90 per cent, of the city's population.
