get no srues during that month, noth
ing but good substantial food."
This price will represent a hugo
evlng to consumers, on the fair
price list issued by tho Federal Food
Armlnlstrator, who sets 67 to 69 cents
a dozen as the legitimate price to
bo demanded by dealers. On this
basis, the reduction to tho .consumer

In writing by Gcorgo W. Martin &
pro., of Nos. 7 and 9 Harrison Street.
The eggs am offered for distribution
through tho publlo school centres,

In bja effort to enforce tho prices.
Tho distribution of millions of eggs
