Cheese Goes Up; Butter
Comes Down; Other
Washington housewives will have
to pay more for their breakfasts of
ham and eggs during the next week,
according: to the fair price list Is
sued yesterday by the local Food
?Administration. Cheese also went
but butter and lard gave the
.Housekeeper some relief when they
I* stopped climbing- and both dropped.
Select fresh eggs, quoted on the
list as weighing: not less than 34
(Ounces, per dosen. jumped up one
cent a dozen, this week's price be
ing set at 73 cents. Cold storage
eggs also went up one cent, reach
ing a mark of 56 cents per dozen.
Whole standard hams showed ffn in
crease over last week's price when
they were quoted at 38 to 40 cents
per pound. Last week's price was
36 to 3S. The price of American
whole milk cheese shows the big
gest increase, jumping two cents
per pound. Last week the price was
34 to 39 cents per pound, while this
week it is 35 to 41 cents. In half
pound lots, the cheese jumped one
cent, to 31 cents.
Bitter Falls.
The most surprising development of
the week was the reduction In the
price of butter. Best creamery but
ter. quoted last week at 64 to 69 cents
per pound, came down to 64 to
cents per pound. This, while It is
only a decrease of one cent in the
Maximum price, is taken by most
people as indicating the stopping of
the general rise in prices Officials
here had practically become resigned
to an advance as high as 31 per pound
when the wholesale price fell from 63
to 63 cents per pound. Administration
officials declared yesterday that this
was probably due to the strict inves
tigation of storage which Is being
made throughout the country. Lard
also showed a decrease of one cent a
pound, being quoted at 31 to 35 cents.
To Display Prlro*.
Hope that the long delayed plan to
regulate the prices of meat was voiced
*?y officials yesterday. The black
boards which are to be displayed in
the butcher shops and upon which the
day's prices are to be shown, will be
ready for distribution the latter
part of the week, it was declare 1 yes
terday. It has taken about six months
to formulate the plans and it Is hoped
that it will be of material advantage
to the purchaser.
It is also hoped that it will tend to
curb the practice of some Washington
butchers to sell goat meat as lamb
and charge lamb prices for it. One
case of this kind is before the F K)d
Administration now and it is expected
that definite action will be taken
against the offender before the end
of the week.
Another food dealer has been hallea
before the administration charged
with wasting food. In view of the
recent request of the National Food
Administration for strict conservation
it is probable that severe punishment
will be meted out in this case. Three j
other dealers are to be heard by the
administration on charges of violating
