Lists w ill tie published in every
country, town and city, and consumers

their prices to a uniform level.
In carrying out the new standardiza­

The board w ill determine fa ir retail
prices on basic commodities that com­

The published lists will give the range
o f maximum selling prices, showing a
reasonable price which will reflect the
prices that should obtain in "cash and

The local administrator for each lo­

board. Each isiard w ill have detailed
