The sellers are approaching meat supermarkets and res- taurants wiling to pay extra to maintain business. The extent of the practice is not yet known and the picture is clouded by widespread rumor and speculation in the beef in- still under light govern- ment controls. Middlemen in New York and Louisiana have de- scribed various black-market operations in their how- and there are predictions the wheeling and dealing may spread as supplies get tighter. Interviews with more than a dozen packers and store and restaurant owners in Illinois produced a picture of how the provess works. It begins after the slaughter- house buys cattle from a rancher or a transac- tion not subject to government price ceilings. The feeling the inch of overhead would sell to a packer at a price higher than that allowed under federal guidelines. The packer then processes'the beef and sells it to his wholesale and retail outlets at above-ceiling prices. The process then moves to the supermarket level. But under tha government's ceiling usually posted in clear view at the meat store owners would find it ex- tremely difficult to sell unlaw- fully without detection. So to stay in business and to stay they pay the illegal price and absorb the losses in sales to customisrs until Sspt. 12 when the price freeze will end.
