HOOVER DECLARES "CORNER
HAS BEEN TURNED IN HIGH
COST OF FOOD."
PUTS BLAME ON 'RETAILERS
Asserts Wholesale Prices Are Much'
Lower Now Than a Year Ago and
Urges Pressure on Dealers
Washington, Oct. 20. Food Admin
istrator Hoover announced on Thurs
day "thut the corner has been turned
In high prices."
He hns gone ns far as ho can In
price reduction, lie says, und assails
the retailers for not doing their parL
The next congress will probably , bo
asked to give him power to force tho
retailers to abstain from profiteering.
Mr. Hoover says:
"Most of the essential commodities
should, one nfter unother, continue to
show reductions between now and tho
end of the year. The food adminis
trator has no control of either tho
grower or his organizations, nor of the
great majority of retailers.
"Tho distribution chain lying be
tween tho warehouse, wholesalers,
commission men and manufacturers of
prime commodities has required a
great deal of study and development
for Its ' proper regulation, nnd these
regulations nro coming Into force
Mr. Hoover said ho had every hope
the retailers will co-operate, as tho
farmers and other food handlers nre
co-operuting, to feed tho nation and
the allies at reasonable prices. Every
body along tho lino down to the re-
tnller, he declared, already Is helping.
But retnll prices do not by any means
rolled the wholesale prices.
"It Is necessary to secure n largo
production, to maintain fair and re
munerative prices to the producers.
While their expenses have Increased
during the past year, the prices de
manded for certain commodities nro
not warranted. Tito Intermediate han
dling trades are being placed under
regulation; they nre co-operating well
with the food administration, nnd tho
speculation and profiteering are now
generally a thing of the past.
"The retailers need the co-operation
of consumers In reducing deliveries,
und their success In nil measures Will
rest largely upon tho support they re
ceive from local authorities."
' Summarized, his review follows:
Flour. Tho current prices at which
Hour Is sold at the mill In Juto bags
vary with the locality and freight
charges on wheat, Toledo .showing tho
lowest prices nt $10 for first patent
nnd $0.70 for second patent; the high
est being Buffnlo, at $10.70 for
first patent and $10.70 for second
patent.- Tho uverago retail prlco on
first patents In 700 cities on October
13 wus $13.77, or from $1X0 to $2 per
barrel higher than is warranted by
the price being pnld to the millers.
Tho retnll prlco has not responded
to millers' reductions.
Beans. Tho benn hnrvest Is esti
mated by tho department of ngrlcul
ture nt approximately 7,000,000,000
bushels In excess of Inst year. Tho
growers' associations nro holding
beans at from 10 to 15 cents per
pound, ns against an average price last
year of eight cents. There has been
100 per cept Increase In the Mnnchu
rlnn bean crop nnd It Is now estimated
at 2,000.000 tons. Owing to shipping
shortage practically tho only outlet Is
to the United Stntes, und these beans
will flow Into tlio American market
from December much below tho prices
now being demanded.
Corn. The harvest this year Is 000,-
000,000 to 700,000,000 bushels over Inst
year, and will be generally available
about the end of November. The price
stands "at $1.00 In Chicago. New corn
Is quoted In Chicago at $1.1!! for Do
ceinbcr nnd Indicates u 40 per cent
drop In tho prlco of common!.
Potatoes. The Harvest is oil per
cent In excess of last year. The prlco
at the leading points varies from $1.50
to $2.80 per 100 pounds. It Is higher
than nt this period last year and Is
duo to n tendency on the part of tho
pr iducer to hold for higher prices, and
to the temporary Inability of the rail
roads to furnish enrs.
Sugar. Beet sugar prices aro being
controlled by tho manufacturers on a
basis (hot should reach the retailer
from 8 to 8& cents per pound. A tetn
pornry shortage In tho Northwestern
states gives no warrant for advances
by retailers to over 9 cents.
Beef. Beef already shows gome
tendency, toward reduction Ic wt.Oio
sititi priTe btri. thono have not been
so fur reflected by the retailer. Tho
price of beef at the packers door Is
14'zd cents per pound, as compared
with 10 cents In July. But the nver
ago retail price of round steak In 700
cities Is 111 cents per pound, against 27
cents In July.
