The bureau's retail foooi price Index for July was PIT cent of the 1935-39 average. This was 16 per cent above n year ngo and IOC per cent above the August, 1930 Index. Higher prices for eggs, dairy products and meats were the chief factors in the rise to July 15. Egg prices Jumped 11 per cent on the average as a result of strong demand, slowing production, and low storage stocks. The increase ranged from five per cent to 16 per cent in the SO cities. Dairy products climbed more than four per cent, reflecting short stocks of butter and seasonally lower milk production. Butter prices were up more than eight .per cent, fresh milk three pet cent and cheese two per cent. The housewife paid one and one- half per cent for meats, fish and poultry as a group on July 15 than on June 15. All beef cuts advanced two to three and one-half per cent. Pork and lamb rose about one per cent and fish two per cent. 3ay for transportation of pupils to Catholic parochial schools.
