WASHINGTON. March *0 'U.r
—The government was pief jre i
today to put price ceilings on farm
products when they reach tne par-
ity or "fair" price level.
The action will be almost auto-
matic. The agriculture department
will notify the Office of Pr.ce Sta-
bilisation (OPSi when a product
has reached parity. Five days after
; notification the product will be re-
moved from the exempt list. To-
I bacco is exempted.
Some farm products such as
fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts
and raw wool now are completely
exempt from price controls at all
E'rocessed foods are under con-
trols, but processors must Ew> al-
lowed to raise their prices to re-
flect any increase at the farm
Cotton is the only farm product
now under ceilings at the farm
level. Officials are prepuring to
put dollars and cents ceilings on
livestock within the next 1< days
or two weeks.
