Stores Found They Could Get Any
Price They Asked During
Washington, Aug. 1G.?While the
Government was urging the public to
"?win- the war" retail food dealers in
Washington were taking it out on the
consumer, fixing prices on the basis
cf market value" instead of on the
basis of actual cost., maintaining th-~
high level in spite of declining whole
sale markets until the armistice was
signed and the agitation against the
high ccst of living forced th'r.
lower their quotations, and charging
the consumer with an amount suffi
cient to place upon his shouklers the
burden of the excess profits tax levied
by the Government.
These facts stand out prominently,
as retailer after retailer testifies be
fore the Senate subcommittee which
is investigating the high cost of liv
ing in the city cf Washington.
"If the war had kept up,'' said o!r
isrge dealer, "we would have made
more money than was ever made I
in the- grocery business, because we !
cc'J'j jr^t any price we wanted for our j
goods. The war is over, though, her.ee j
the demand in Washington is less. ,
and the people are kicking so
we've got to try and hold prices down ;
to do business.
