Price Control
For Retailers,
Starts Monday
Dealers Required To Post
Lists 'In Manner Plainly
Visible To The Public'
WASHINGTON, May 16.--0P)-Re-
tailers were reminded today that the
price ceiling regulation becomes ef-
iective for them next Monday and
that the Office of Price Administra-
tion expects them to post their price
lists "in a manner clearly visible to
the public."
"This, the OPA said, means that a
list in a book, loose-leaf folder or
card. index will suffice. Put the list
on sheets "prominently displayed,"
and don't tack several sheets to-
gether in layers, the OPA advised.
That these lists will be one of the
best read bits of printed matter in
the nation is attested by the fact
that the maximum price regulations
cover virtually everything that Amer-
icans eat, use or wear-thousands
upon thousands of things.
When stores open up Monday
morning, they must not charge more
for any item within the scope of the
regulations than the highest price
they charged during last March.
Most foods are under the ceiling
but the exempt list includes eggs,
poultry, mutton, lamb, fresh fruits
and vegetables. Also exempt are
books, magazines, newspapers and
motion pictures.
On July 1 another phase of the
price control-becomes effective when
no one may charge more for certain
services sold at retail (such as laun-
dries and automobile and radio re-
pair) than the highest price charged
in March. Exempt from the service
ceiling list are dentists, doctors, law-
yers, barbers and beauty shops.
Looking forward to some questions
that may be raised in connection with
the retail price regulation, the OPA
already has ruled that:
In instances where the maximum
price under the regulation' is less
than the price required under a fair
trade contract in a state having a
fair trade law the Federal regula-
tion holds.

Almost 1,000 weary, mud-daubed
but enthusiastic ROTC cadets closed
an afternoon of mock warfare yes-

a good time.
Crawling through mud and hiding
behind bushes still wet from morning
rainstorms, the cadets conducted the
maneuversin realistic fashion. Pris-
oners were taken and cadets ruled

was pitted against Company L, which
defended its position along a wooded
ridge to the east of Arlington Drive.
One battalion of the attacking troops
{ made a surprise maneuver in an ef-
fort to 'flank the defending company
while the other battalion made a
frontal attack. The battle had not
yet reached its climax when by 5 p.m.
the maneuvers ended. However, there
were numerous minor skirmishes
throughout the afternoon.
Newcomer to cadet maneuvers was
a cavalry unit composed of members
of the Cadets Officers Riding Club.
The cavalry did scouting action for
the attacking forces and, being irre-
placeable, were freed when captured
and could not be termed casualties.
Cadets of the Signal Corps sup-
plied communications between the
attacking companies with field tele-
phones and 'walkie-talkie' sets.
Colonel William A. Ganoe and
Colonel Grover B. Egger, addressing
the cadets at the end of the maneu-
vers, expressed their satisfaction with
the mock battle. They were greatly
pleased with the spirit of the cadets,
which reached its high when mem-
bers of Company L attempted to at-
tack the entire Second Battalion.
Chief criticism ,of the maneuvers
was the failure of companies to keep
in touch with the battalion com-
manders and the failure of units to
execute orders precisely.
Cadet Lieutenant-Colonel Lindley
M. Dean following the battle was
presented with his military insignia
as a gift from the ROTC for his
services in the corps.
