WASHINGTON (P) - A chain
of supermarket cooperatives in
the Washington area yesterday
announced it will close its 13
stores Saturday in a one-day pro-
test seeking a freeze on food
prices.
Eric Waldbaum, president of
Consumers Supermarkets, told a
news conference here, "the
most important thing is to stop
spiraling food prices and stop
them now."
John Shepherd, spokesman for
the Washington division of Safe-
way Stores, Inc., called it "an
imaginative approach" to the
food-price problem.

Waldbaum conceded that clos-
ing the 13 stores in the Maryland
and Virginia suburbs of the na-
tion's capital would not halt ris-
ing prices. But he said it was de-
signed to focus attention on the
need for setting ceilings on all
food prices - not just on meat
which will be the target of a na-
tional shoppers' boycott next
week.
Consumers Supermarkets will
run a full-page ad in the Wash-
ington Post today explaining its
action and calling for signatures
on protest petitions to be collect-
ed outside the chain's stores and
presented to the White House.

t prot
'I protest the high costo
food," the petitions say. "St
passing the buck. Action is"r
quired now."
"Must America literally sto
eating before something
done?" the ad asks. "You ca
do it, Mr. President. You ca
stop it now." Waldbaum sai
that, although his chain support
the meat-boycott effort, the wee]
long action doesn't offer a pe
manent solution, nor does th
concept of eating substitute food
as some administration officia
have proposed.
"Reducing beef purchases ma
tend to force cattlemen to cu

back on beef production, which
in turn could cause prices to go
even higher," Waldbaum said.
And a run on fish or cheese
would only drive prices on those
foods up.
Waldbaum said prices on
meat, though highly visible in
retail stores, haven't increased
as much as the prices on many
other food products.
Wholesale beef prices, he said,
have risen 24 per cent in the last
12 months, compared to increas-
es of 66 per cent for hogs, 61 per
cent for wheat, 54 per cent for
broiler chickens, 41 per cent for
coffee and 39 per cent for eggs.
President Nixon should order a
temporary freeze, Waldbaum
said, while the administration
develops a program that would
reverse the present trend.
Shepherd, whose Safeway di-
vision has 237 stores in the Wash-
ington area, said he could under-
stand the Consumers Supermar-
kets' action but that Safeway
wouldn't follow suit because it.

would "invoke a hardship on our
customers."
The Consumer chain is operat-
ed by Greenbelt Consumer Serv-
ices Inc., cooperative enterprise
organized in Greenbelt, Md., in
1939.
