Retail Trade Opinion
Sought by Committee
For the purpose of obtaining the views
of the many retail grocers of the city be-
fore starting their work of fixing prices
on staple commodities the price fixing
committee of the Houston district of the
federal food administration has called a
meeting Thursday night at 8 o'clock In the
banquet hall of the city auditorium to talk
the situation over. Retailers and whole
sale grocers and produce men are asked
The meeting will be an open ope and
those of the public Interested are invited.
"It Is no secret conference" said W. D.
Cleveland Jr. chairman of the commit-
tee. "The housewives attending will se-
cure some first hand information as to
how they are hindering the food adminis-
tration by gathering together more than
their normal supply of food."
A discussion of varying prices on the
same commoditly will be discussed. This
grew out of the fact that the government
desires that all make a fair profit on their
goods which when bought at different
times had varied cost prices. This caused
the market to fluctuate. After the con-
ference the. committee will take up its
work of making a uniform price scale.
