WASHINGTON The Recon

clared that "a body blow has been
leveled at the unprecedented short
age of men's clothing."
It said the blow would come
in the form of 1,000,000 low
priced high quality suits and over
coats made of surplus fabrics
which should begin reaching re
tailers for ex-GI Joes and other
near threadbare American men
within the next six to eight weeks."
"It will be a bargain day for
those who buy since the garments,
which are intended to sell at prices
less than $30, will be superior in
quality to clothing normally sold
at comparable prices," said an
RFC press release couched in lan
guage unusual for that agency.
The RFC said the fabrics were
purchased originally for use. by
the armed forces.
The nation's small manufactur
ers described as those with
"fewer than 500 employes and . . .
not dominant or affiliated with an
organization that is dominant in
its field are being "invited to
share in the initial offering, which
consists of several million yards of
The sale is to close August 17,
HFC said. The Civilian Production
Administration requires any man
ufacturer getting part of the fab
rics to use it all for men's clothing
and to dispose of the garments
"promptly to retailers."

One hotel operator said, "When
one goes out, two come in and
when two go out, we have applica
tions for three, and we have never
had such a season."
Filling station operators give an
other story. One stated that he I
had sold only' slightly more gaso-
line this year, over last year when
gas was rations'
Traffic is generally conceded to
be much greater this year than
last, with many more cars passing
through but from the standpoint
of those handling traffic it was
hard to say how many stayed and
how many passed on through.
It was also pointed out by one
of the business leaders that it must
be remembered that there are many
more local citizens here than last
year with many local people hav
ing moved back from war defense-1
areas and many veterans now
There was also a difference of
opinion among food dealers. One
reported that there was a big in
crease in the sale of food but it
was for local people. Another re
ported that he was sure from his
sales, that there was a big increase
in the summer people here over
There is fine cooperation this
year among those who serve the
visitors it was learned from the
Chamber of Commerce, which is
being appreciated by the latter.
In cases where a hotel or guest
house cannot accommodate those
wanting reservations, the manag
ers take time to locate the people
so that they will remain here.
