this plan for fighting infla tion admunistration members Albert Rees and Earl Bute opened a government conference on food marketing with hopes of holding down American grocery costs We must start saying what each of us is prepared to do to help lower costs increase pro ductivity and get inflation under control said Rees head of the Council on Wage and Price Stability in the keynote ad dress We must reexamine the way we do things and not continue to do them in me same old way but begin to do them the way that will get the most food to Hie most Hungry people in the least time Agriculture Secretary Butz preceded Rees at the conference podium saying There is nothing wrong with the profit system It works But we want competition to work too The sesion is sponsored by the council and the Agriculture Department but most of me participants are from private industry One suggestion Rees had in the way of specific solutions was to cut back sharply on the use of fertilizer on lawns and golf courses to permit more fertilizer to be used on farms and vegetable gardens The United States uses more fertilizer on lawns than India uses on all of its crops he said experts had told him Wednesday Rees revealed that the government plans to examine pricing practices of food stores in an attempt to curb the rapidly rising costs to con sumers He said the agency wants to discourage food stores from marking up the price of items already on the shelves Public hearings on the prac tice will be held sometime next month as part of an investiga tion into profits and markups for food middlemen The hearings are the councils ultimate weapon againstinflation since it has no enforcement powers Some food chains already have announced that once they mark the price of an item they will not stampon a new higher price We want togefthem to say why ttieyve announced their policy and find out why some of the other chains have not an nounced such a Rees said Wednesday Consumers dont mind paying higherprices for things if they think theyre justified by higher costs he said But when they see a can of beans that has been marked 27 cents and thats crossed out arid its marked 35 cents they feel that extra 8 cents is some sort of an unjustified you could almost call it price gouging Reessaid The council created in August was President Fords first request of Congress when he took office and declared in flation to be Public Enemy No 1 Meanwhile Ford met with a group of livestock and poultry growers and listened to their recommendations for a variety of solutions to their economic problems

in turn are res ponsible for water and sew age under terms of their state license However the park is unli censed because a fee due in May has not been paid The owners are Larry Mack of Marion
