higher retail prices for the garments named and for such other items as pajamas and work clothing New retail ceilings have not been set yet but OPA said it ex pects the price of shirts and house dresses for example to advance from 10 to 15 cents Shorts may cost about 8 cents more A few weeks ago when OPA was outlining the current pro gram to textile mill representa tixes it figured the increase for shirts would be only about 5 or 6 cents The newly authorized retail price hike will be from 2 to 3 times that much mainly because OPA has decided it announced Friday night that higher
