said and added These negotiations have failed Meanwhile March 2 the date fixed by the tripartite treaty has passed and the soviet troops have not been withdrawn The obligation of the soviet government

facts If black market prices are be ing paid for meat then it must be selling at more than ceiling prices on the retail market and I dont believe the average retailer of meat is dishonest any more than the average meat packer The packers have declared that eastern slaughter houses were paying overceiling prices for live cattle m midwest markets and thus diverting beef into illeiti mate channels Kline said a large number of small independent slaughter houses had been established in eastern states which have been li censed by the U S department of agriculture However he said that as far as he could ascertain price ceilings were not being violated He explained that these small packers were licensed to grade their own beef while large middle west packers are federally inspect ed and the government inspectors grade the This may result he explained n the eastern packers paying the top or premium prices for cattle whicii under federal inspection would grade only for lowergrad commercial or utility beef The packers problem is ivith ne agriculture department not the OPA Kline said ARMY DESTROYS WAR WFARYPr7wF tion on an airfield at L Strikes At a Glance ivcimouc vote on Westinghouse
