Anger over high prices or simple financial necessity ap- parently is prompting many housewives to reduce their meat buying. Tlie American Meat Institute reports from Chicago that there was 3 drop in wholesale meat prices during the last week. Noting this, Chairman Herbert Stein ot the president's Council of Economic Advisers told Washington reporters Thurs- day: "Something seems to be working back from the demand side. Consumer resistance may be having an effect." The National Association of Food Chains said that in a re- cent telephone survey of 16 food chains, 15 reported they were ordering less beef than before. The Western States Meat Pack- ers Association says West Coast meat wholesales have cut their prices two to three cents a pound in response to pressure from consumers and the gov- ernment.
