PRICES FOR MILK
WILL BE LOWERED
Shelby County Dairymen's As
sociation Agrees to Mini
mum Price of 18 Cents a
Quart for Sweet Mil.
Milk, consumers in Memphis will
buy their milk after Jan. 1, at a
reduction of about 10 per cent from
current level. That Is to say, at
as low as 18 r-r.la a quart and 10
cents a pint for sweet milk and 10
cents a quart for buttermilk. The
wholesale price of milk may also be
reduced, with grocers paying 8 cents
a pint to dairymen who are mem
bers of the Shelby County Duiry
men's association.
Agreement was reached at a meet
ing of the association Thursday
night whereby the foregoing prices
adopted as the minimum figures at
which members might sell their milk.
Indications that the cut In price
might not be general were contained
in the strong argument put up
against the cut by Beveral members
of the association and the divided
vote on the question.
It developed, however, that consid
erable competition in the dairying
business had sprung up recently, 28
applications for dairy licenses hav
ing been filed within the past 45
days. Most of these new entries are

not affiliated "with the association
and It was said that they were seek
ing to establish a buRinesM through
the cut-price route.
The Increase in the number of
dairies Is being reflected in the milk
supply and those favoring the :wer
price at Thursday's meeting contend
ed that it was necessary in order to
Induce the public to drink more milk.
They contended that the association
was faced with the alternative of a
Jjmluntary cut now or a forced one
within a very short time.
Lower price of feedstuffs and the
fact that other cities not a great dis
tance from Memphis are getting milk
at figures even lower than the new
minimum established here, were also
cited as furnishing reasons for a cut
in prices. It was also pointed out
that labor, which a year ago was
scarce, high and Inefficient, is now
plentiful, much cheaper and working
well.
The minority opposed to the price
cut Indicated that it would not fol
low the cut, but It was agreed that
they might charge more If they could
get It and remain on speaking terms
with their customers,
