THURSDAY, MAY 15, 194I PRICES ARE GOING UP-- PROBABLY NOT TOO HIGH Food prices are going up. In large cities retail prices are now 5 per cent than last autumn and 4..S per cent higher a year ago at this time. From Marh 18 to IS, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, advanced 2.2 per ct. This month the in- will probably be even greater. this jump in food prices is due to large purchase by the Army and Navy, but a man in the military services only eats 40 per cent more food than he would at More instrumental in the price rise is the De- of Agriculture's program for pegging the of certain farm products at levels that witl the farmer to increase his production these items. Farm products which the Federal Government agreed to buy at prices higher than the far- has been getting include hogs, dairy products, and eggs. The April IS figures, first on which the pegged had an effect, show eggs up IQ per cent in th, butter up S per cent, pork chops, 4- per and roasting chickens up  per cent. 10 Per Cent Rise Favored In allowing the Department of Agriculture to higher prices for farm products and at time permitting Leon H.endersn;..cii:  Office of Price Administration one .,w to clamp down fop prices on steel, machine uminum scrap and other materials neces- defense, President Roosevelt appears to be istent. But Secretary of Agriculture Claude R. Wick- insisted all along that it would be useless to expect the farmer to heed Govern- appeals for increased production if he has to 60 to 70 hours a week and only get four- as much for his products as he did in Iql4. Sources close to OPACS say that Mr. Hen- ig willing to allow a I0 per cent rise in food for the sake of the farmer, then he will be- in to clamp down. Ten per cent is figured rough- the margin between farmers' income three as a o and what the Department of Agricul- g is a fair economic returnin other When t "full effects of the new agrlcuffurat ram are felt, supplies of eggs, butter and are expected to prove sufficient to meet domestic consumption and requirements of reat Britain and other non-aggressor nations en- iD aid under the lend-lease law.
