And food prices
This is the first in the summer series of
consumer surveys listing grocery prices around
town.
This survey indicates prices only. Shopping
at the "winning store" does not guarantee a
certain quality or that you will find exactly what
you want.
A group of University students with the aid

go u and down
of the Public Interest Research Group in Michi-
gan (PIRGIM) surveyed 14 stores, comparing
prices on 98 items apearing on a typical shop-
ping list. The stores were ranked according to
cost for all products priced.
Congratulations to this week's winners. To
the losers - just lower your prices and you too
can win.

Ford, EPA discuss

WASHINGTON (A) -- Ford
Motor Co. executives met with
officials of the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) yes-
terday to discuss what steps
Ford might take to assure it will
be able to produce 1973 model
cars on schedule.
The possibility of a delay
was raised last week when the
EPA said Ford had fouled up
on testing anti-pollution sys-
tems for the new cars.
"We explained that the basic
problem is the time required to
rerun the necessary durability
tests and emphasized the need
for quick action to permit

completion of tests," said Her-
bert Misch, vice president of
Ford's.environmental and safety
engineering staff.
The United Auto Workers.
meanwhile. asked the federal
government yesterday for a
meeting to discuss what can be
done to forestall any delay in
the introduction of Fords this
fall. The union is faced with
the prospect of layoffs for
400,000 of its members if Ford
plants have to be closed.
EPA Administrator William
Ruckelhaus said yesterday the
EPA is trying to solve the prob-
lems brought on by Ford Motor
Co.'s pollution test errors.
Ruckelshaus said a possible

foul-up
solution would be to give a
conditional certificate based on
an estimate the vehicles would
meet standards, but prohibit
selling the vehicles until they do
in fact pass tests.
"We're examining this, and
many other ways of trying to
solve it," Ruckelshaus said,
"and I don't think anybody
would like to -see the whole is-
sue of clean air twisted around
so that we had such a mecha-
nistic interpretation of a stat-
ute, that would put a lot of
people out of work with no ap-
preciable benefit to the air."
