Price Drop Seen
"A substantial drop in prices is
due," Prof. Anderson said, "al-
though government policies sup-
porting agricultural prices will
partially check the fall, and pro-
vide a floor on food prices."
Prof. Anderson asserted that
the reason for last week's market
price tumble was the psycholog-
ical effect on businessmen of the
Federal Reserve Board's recent
tightening of credit regulations in
its New York and Chicago
branches, plus predictions of a
larger winter wheat crop than
previously estimated.
20 Percent Cutback
Largest cutback was 20 per cent
on smoked meats by one Amn Ar-
bor grocer. All agreed that the
drop would be more pronounced
when present inventories were
cleared and new stocks purchased.
They unanimously held out hope
for the housewife that more price
reductions wouldbe made in the
near future.
"But don't expect too much re-
lief at the retail level for quite
a while yet," Prof. Anderson
warned. He pointed out for ex-
ample, that a reduction in grain
prices passed through milling and
baking processes before it comes
to the grocer as bread. Possible
wage increases and the recent rise
in rail freight .rates .may reduce
the saving to the consumer, he
