CAPITAL SELLS 125,000 POUNDS
Frankfort, Ky., Dec. 8. T,here
were 125,000 pounds of tobacco sold
here today at prices as high as $1
per pound. The sales for the day
averaged 60c per pound. The mark
et remains excellent.
At a meeting of the Kentucky
High Cost of Living Commission
held in Louisville, Col. P. H. Calla
han of that city was elected chair
man. .. .; ' ' i .
Furthermore, it was, announced
that the Department of Justice had
taken over this commission and its
full personnel, asking it to be the
Governmental agency to carry out
the spirit and letter of the law as
outlined in the recent extension of
the Lever Act which provides for
fine and imprisonment of any one
guilty of profiteering in any of the
essentials of food, fuel and clothing,
and the Commission has now agreed
upon an extended program to effect
an organization throughout the state,
realizing that the present high cost
of living is one of the most disturb-
; ing elements existing in Amerian
life today? '
Since the Commission is now un
der the direction of the Federal Gov
ernment with the strength of the
Department of Justice behind it, any
one found profiteering in the essen
tials of life may expect to be sum
cessary commodities, and as soon as
mittee has been organized whose du
ty it is to fix a fair price on all ne
cesary commodities, and as soon as
these prices are completed, any one
found charging a. higher price will
be promptly proceeded against thru
the U. S. District Attorney's office.
However it is absolutely neces
sary that the public patriotically do
their part in this work' by promptly
reporting to the High Cost of Liv
ing Commission at Louisville, Ky.,
all cases where apparent overcharge
has been made, for the field of inves
tigation is so very large that the com
mittee's investigators can personally
locate only a small percentage of the
offenders, therefore, it is the purpose
of this body to enlist the cooperation
of all business, civic, religious and
welfare associations, but more es
pecially te citizens themselves in an
effort to remedy the present condi
tion. A most agressive plan of campaign
was outlined with District Attorney
Gregory, and Slattery of the United
States Court present who are to give
their full co-operation and assistance
I and the public now has Vie assurance
that any cases of over charge report
ed will have prompt attention but in
sending in these reports, it is abso-
luteLv necessary in order to make
proper investigation that the detailed
information be given as to the price
paid for the article itself, date of
purchase, and name of dealer, over
the signature of. the purchaser.
The efforts of the Commission so
far have been largely confined to the
city of Louisville, where it has suc
ceeded in bringing about considera
ble benefits and it is now our pur
pose to entend the usefulness of this
Commission to all parts of the State,
and anyone anywhere should write
to the High Cost of Living Commis
sion, Louisville, Kentucky, if they
have been overcharged or if they
know of any overcharging prevailing.
