Scrutiny Coal Agreement Is Ready for Roosevelts Signa ture Today WASHINGTON Sept Proposed regulation of prices in the nations 1500000 retail stores com manded attention of recovery officials as the soft coal code was made ready for President Roosevelts signature today The master code for retail trades has been awaiting action by adminis trator Hugh S Johnson for several days With the coal compact com Piltd snve for lhc formality of White House approval Johnson and his aides expected to swing into a thorough study of the retail proposals Chief issue facing Johnson is whether he shall approve the present provision forbidding stores to sell goods at less than invoice prices plus a certain percentage The percent ages vary from 7 to 10 for various types of stores Deputy Administrator A D White side has recommended that Johnson approve the price control provision but the consumers advisory board opposes it Whiteside contends price control 5s necessary to stop ruthless competi tion especially against small mer chants He is desirous of stopping the practice of some stores of selling a few items at cost pr less in order to draw crowds in the expectation of selling other articles at fat profits Elimination of this practice would nol harm consumers In the long run Whiteside believes WhiJe they would lose the benefit of some extraordinary markdowns he believes the general run of prices would be fairer Presidential signature of the bitu minous coal code scheduled yester day was delayed in order to give the industry more time to prepare for operators under its provisions and to set up the elaborate machinery of Regional and National Administrative Boards The code effective the second Monday after Presidential signature Thus the one day delay means the code will go into
