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 "that the corner lias been turned
In high prices."
He tins gone as far as he can In
price reduction, ho snys, and assulls
tho retailors for not doing their part.
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 after another, 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.
"The distribution chain lyng be
tween the warehouse, wholesalers,
commission men and manufacturers of
prlmo commodities has required a
great deal of study and development
for Its' proper regulation, and these
regulations are coming ' Into forco
Mr. Hoover said ho had every hope
the retailers will co-operate, us thu
farmers and other food handlers arc
co-opornting, to feed the nation and
tho allies at reasonable prices. Every
body along tho line down to the re
tullcr, he declared, already Is helping.
But retail prices do not by any means
reflect the wholesalo prices.
Ho added :
"It Is necessary to secure a largo
production, to maintain fair and re
munerative prices to tho producers.
While their expenses have increased
during the past year, the prices de
manded for certain commodities nro
not warranted. The intermediate han
dling trades are being placed under
regulation; they aro co-operating well
with the food administration, and tho
speculation and profiteering aro now
generally a thing of the past.
"The retailors need the co-operation
of consumers In reducing deliveries,
nnd their success In all measures will
rest largely upon tho support they re
ceive from local authorities."
Summarized, his review follows:
Flour. The current prices at which
flour is sold nt the mill In Jute bags
vary with the locality and freight
charges on wheat, Toledo .showing tho
lowest prices nt $10 for first patent
and $0.70 for second patent; the high
est being Buffalo, at $10.70 for
first patent and $10.70 for second
pntent- The uverago retail price on
first patents In 700 cities on October
13 was $13.77, or from $1.50 to $2 per
burrel higher than is warranted by
tho price being paid to tho millers,
Tho retail prlco has not responded
to millers' reductions.
Beans. Tho benn harvest Is estl
muted by the department of ngrlcul
turo nt approximately 7,000,000,000
bushels In excess of last year. Tho
growers' . associations aro holding
benns at from 1I1V6 to 15 cents per
pound, ns ngnlnst nn average price last
year of eight cents. There has been
100 per cept Increusc In the Mnnchu
rliin benn crop nnd It Is now estimated
at 2,000.000 tons. Owing to shipping
shortage practically the only outlet Is
to the United States, and these beans
will flow Into tho American market
from December much below the prices
now being demanded.
Corn. The harvest this year Is 000,'
000,000 to 700,000,000 bushels over last
year, and will be generally available
about the end of November. The prlco
stands at $1.00 In Chicago. New corn
Is quoted In Chicago at $1.13 for De
cenibcr nnd Indicates a 40 per cent
drop In the prlco of comment.
Potatoes. The Harvest is w per
cent In excess of last. year. Tho prlco
at the leading points varies from $1.50
to $2.80 per 100 pounds. It Is higher
than at this period last year nnd Is
dnu to n tendency on the part of tho
pr dueor to hold for higher prices, und
to the temporary Inability of tho rail
roads to furnish cars.
Sugar. Beet sugar prices aro being
controlled by tho manufacturers on n
basis (but should reach the retailer
from 8 to 8' cents per pound. A tern
porary shortage In tho Northwestern
states gives no warrant for advances
by retailers to over 0 cents.
Beef. Beef already shows some'
tendency, toward reduction it wr.iu
Hithi pri-H!!, but those have not been
so fur reflected by tho retailer. ' Tho
price of beef at the packers' door Is
14 cents per pound, ns compared
with 10 .cents In July, But the nver
ugo retnil prlco of round steak In 700
cities Is 31 cents per pound, against 27
cents In July.
