That a knowledge of the wholesale price her grocer has to pay will en able the El Paso housewife to deter mine whether that worthy is pra fiteerln&, and thus enable her to make a sane fight against profiteers, is the belief of one wholesale grocery dealer in El Paso, who has Issued a com parison if prices today and one year ago. The comparison shows that in the majority of btanle foods, nrfr have advanced heavily. Among the few foods which have remained sta tionary, or which have undergone slight raises, ar macaroni, spaghetti, flour, crackers, and cereals, xugar has remained virtually the same in price although a year ago it was al most impossible to obtain, so that In this single instance the condition is better now than it was at that time.; 1- ollowing is the comparison of prices, showing the rapid advance of prices in a single year, as compiled oy one wholesaler: ianned mux, good grade, now to S7.:5 a case: one year aco. 14.50 for the same case of 4S large cans.

C Rosa Food Control Law Changes Are Blocked Senators Opposing Amend ments bay Existing Pow er Is Sufficient. Washington. D. C Aug. IS. Action ln amendments to the food control act suggested by attorney general Palm er as a means of reducing the high cost of living was blocked ln the sen ate agricultural committee today. Chairman Gronna hopes the commit tee will act finally Tuesday. The house agricultural committee proceeded with its hearings with a view to an early report on the amend ments. In the senate committee senator Harrison. Democrat. Mississippi, urged that the committee act immed iately, but his motion was defeated. In opposing the amendments, sen ators Smith. Georgia, and Smith. South Carolina, as well as senator Ransdall. Louisiana, took the rwsi- tion that sufficient power now exists to meet the situation. Factor To llrdnre Co.fa. Senator Smith. Georgia, said two great movements now in progress would reduce the cost of living, return or soldiers to civil life, thereby in' creasing production, and the reduc tion in taxes in 1920. Chairman Gronna announced that a Joint meeting of the house and senate agricultural committee would be held tomorrow to hear witnesses repre senting the National Grange and milk producers regarding the high cost of living. Before the house committee today, John D. Miller, of New York, repre senting the National Board of Farm Organizations, urged that farmers or ganizations be exempted from pro visions of all laws regulating prices or controlling the distribution of foodstuffs. VESTIGATING ' FOOD PROBLEM Many See Hope in the Sale of Army Supplies. (Continued from page 1.) "THE STORE FOR THRIF TY PEOPLE." "THE STORE FOR THRIF TY PEOPLE." You Can't Afford to Overlook This Offer- Urges Boycott Of Eggs, Butter, Milk And Meal Until Prices Get Lou)er Seattle, Wash.. Aug. 15. Letters 1 urging a nation wide boycott of but ter, eggs, milk and meat until prices of these foods have reached a reason able level, were going forward today to the .nw xorK Headquarters oi tne National Housewives" league and sim ilar bodies in the Unite ' States from the Seattle Homefceepers league. The Seattle organization stated rea sonable prices for these commodities should he: Butter. 50c a pound; eggs.5oc a doz en; milk. 15c a quart: fresh meat. 25c a pound; salt meat, 40c a pound. taininr rheaner nrices by the pur chase of Urger quantities. The plan. as explained oy w. v. a. ucsain is that all families in each neighbor hood appoint the member who does the buying to meet with the others. These reoreseniatives can men or ganise committees to do the buying j and make distribution of the products. , Naturally, the larger number of fam- j flies which enter a group the larger the avfng. I The saving, it Is explained is in many different ways. One Is the transportation of supplies. No deliv eries will be made from the store, the purchaser being required to carry away his own purchase. It is expect ed that each family win buy supplies valued at from $25 to $50. the latter being a maximum allowance, and thu the neighborhood plan will enable the delivery of all supplies by the hiring of one conveyance. Price lists are to be Issued at once and the person in charge of the food sales have urged that careful atten tion be given these so that a saving of time may result. If two or three representatives of a neighborhood so ciety attend to details a further sav ing both of time and labor can be effected.
