heart such price tags as and is running short of change The shortage of coins seems to be most acute in the North east and Midwest and threatens to harass merchants and customers alike during the Christmas season Treasury and Federal Reserve officials say pennies and nickels are in the shortest supply and the possibility of a grey mar ket in small change has arisen A retail chain store in Chi

like to Increase production at the Phil adelphia and Denver mints but it doesnt have the money Of ficials hope to get quick ap proval from the budget bureau and key members of Congress to spend funds
