OFFICE OF PRICE ADMINIS
TRATION Q. Why was the General Maxi
mum Price Regulation issued ?
: A. The regulation is a war meas
ure issued to stop further increas
es in the cost of living and in oth
er prices. -
Q. Why have prices been rising ?
A. Fighting the war requires
huge expenditures for armaments
and turns thousands of plants
from producing civilian goods to
producing war goods. This re
sults in increased wage payments,
but' smaller production of civilian
goods. Thus demand is rising while
supply is declining. The result
is higher prices.
Q. What prices are' covered by
A. Nearly all prices charged by
retailers, wholesalers, : manufact
urers, and producers of raw ma
terials. The only important cost-
of-living exclusions are certain
Q. What are the ceiling prices?
A. In general, the highest charg
ed during March, 1942, by each
Q. When does the ceiling be
A. 1. For goods sold at retail,
the ceilings apply on May 18, 1942.
2. For services at retail,that is,
rendered to the Ultimate consumer,
the ceiling applies on July 1, 1942.
3. For sales by manufacturers,
producers and wholesalers, and
service rendered to an industrial
consumer, the ceiling applies on
May 11, 1942.
Q. Will the ceiling prices be the
same at every store for the same
A. No In general, the ceiling is
the highest price at which each
store sold an article during March.
The maximum price will vary
from store to store just as prices
varied from store to store during
Q. Can prices lower than ceiling
be charged ?
A. Yes, they go as low as the
seller wishes. But they cannot
go one cent above the ceiling. Re
member that the purpose of this
action is to stop the rise in prices
Q. What action has been taken
A. OPA has designated 323
groups of communities as "defense
rental areas" and has taken the
first steps to check the rise in
housing rents In these areas.
Q. How will the housewife know
what the maximum prices are?
A, The regulation lists about
100 of the most important groups
of the average family's cost of
living. The maximum prices ftf
these items must be displayed by
any retailer selling them after
May 18. - '
Q. What about prices of goods
that are not on the cost-of-living
A. Until July 1, the housewife
should ask the storekeeper for his
maximum prices. After July 1, the
retailer must have a prepared
statement of the highest prices
for all commodities or services
which he delivered or supplied
during March. This may be ex
amined by any one on request.
Q. What should the housewife do
if she believes that she is required
to pay more than a storekeeper's
A. She should ask the store
keeper to explain the price to her.
If she still believes that she is
required to pay more than his
legal maximum, she should com
municate the facts to OPA's near
est War Price Rationing Board or
its nearest local office.
Q. How can the shopper obtain a
record showing what she paid so
that she can make positive com
parison with March prices?
A. Every store, when requested
by a customer, must give a sales
slip or receipt showing the date, the
name and address of the store, the
item sold, and the price received.
Q. Why is a whole month used
for the pricing period?
A. This is to produce as fair a
maximum as possible. If prices
were frozen at the level in effect
during a shorter period or on only
one day, the ceiling might be dis
torted and might be abnormally
low for a store which had had
bargain sales or "dollar days"
throughout the base period.
Q. What articles are covered by
price ceilings? j
A. Practically every article used
Canal Zone to O. S. D. School at
Camp Davis, of this state. Sgt.
Rogers volunteered in 1939 and
has been stationed in the Canal
Zone ever since. This is his first
return to the states and it will be
three months before he will be al
lowed a furlough to come home
on a visit to his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Hub Rogers, who reside on
Canton, Route Two.
P. F. C. Robert Cope, Jr., of
Fort Jackson, is spending seven
day furlough here with his par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cope.
Private Ray Truitt has returned
to Fort Jackson after spending a
seven day furlough here with his
father, Pat Truitt.
Private Cecil Gaddy, son of Mrs.
Hessie Gaddy, who was recently
inducted into service, spent five
days here last week.
Private Albert Mull has returned
to Fort Jackson after spending a
seven days furlough here with his
in the life and work of America.
Included are the basic articles that
make ud the cost of livine cloth-1
ing, yard goods, fuel, furniture,
most foods, hardware, appliances,
tobacco, drugs, and toiletries. At
the manufacturers' level the reg
ulations cover virtually all pro
ducts and commodities that are .
not already under price ceilings. J
Q. But there are some excep-,
A. Yes, some exceptions are nec-l
cessary. For example, the t,mer-i
gency Price Control Act of 1942, i
which confers the authority to con-j
trol prices on OPA, does not per
mit the Price Administrator to set
ceiungs over me iarm prouuets
that are selling below parity. The
act also exempts newspapers, mag
azines, theater admissions, and
railroad and bus rate. Because of
obvious administrative difficulties
the regulations exempt fresh fish,
fresh fruits and vegetables, rare
stamps and coins, and objects of
art. Raw farm commodities, such
as wheat, are exempt from ceil
ings, but these same products when
processed and prepared for the
consumer, as in the form of bread,
are under price ceilings.
Q. Are there ceilings on sales
pf food beverages by lunch rooms,
restaurants and hotels?
A. No, these also are exempt.
The possibilities of cutting the
quality cooked, its preparation and
service and also the amount and
quality of beverages served are
so numerous that the administra
tion and enforcement of ceiling on
sales of this nature would be ex
tremely difficult. It is thought
that if restaurants' costs are
largely stabalized, there will be
little or no excuse to raise prices.
Furthermore, the terrific competi
tion in this field will tend to hold
Q. What about services? Is
there a limit on charges by laun
dries, tailors, dry cleaners, auto
repair shops, radio repair men,
storage establishments and the
A. Yes, price ceilings are being
According to Budget Director
Harold D. Smith, the successfully
speeded-up arms program will cost
the U. S. $70,000,000,000 for the 12
month beginning July 1. This is a
fourteen billion dollar increase over
his originally announced estimate.
placed over these retail services
performed in Connection with a
commodity. But purely personal
services, such as beauty parlors
and barber shops, are exempted by
Q. Is real estate covered?
A. No, sales of land and build
ings are exempt from price control.
(j. Why do retail ceilings go
into effect, on different dates?
Why don't maximum prices takes
effect at once?
A. By coming under maximum
prices one week after wholesalers
and manufacturers, retail stores
will have a greater opportunity to
buy supplies at March wholesale
prices before returning to March
retail prices. Any deliveries to
retailers after March 11, of course,
must be at prices no higher than
the supplier's maximum prices
even if the contract calls for a
higher price. In the case of re
tail service, the effective date is
delayed until July 1. This will
