"Certain definite suggestions," for
reducing living costs have been pro

announced this afternoon.
l'ahner'a announcement came at the
conclusion of a three hour and a half
co'iforcnce of eleven cabinet members
and government officials at his oifice.
These officials heard the recommenda
tions of Federal Trade Commissioner

Treasury Leffingwell and Rullioad Di

Palmer would give no inkling of what
the new suggestion are. It is assumed
that they have to do with prosecution
of food profiteers because of the pres
ence at the meeting of C. W". Ames,
special assistant to Palmer, in charge
of anti-trust legislation, and administra
tion of the food and fuel act. Ames
is believed to have laid befoie the meet
ing some suggestions as a result tf his
study of the report of the "big five"
packers made by the federal trade com
mission. The presence of Julius Barnes, head
of. the United States grain ct.rpoialion,

A meeting between the representa

that when the company got on rtj teet
the growers would receive such addi

were two cents .under the market price

that this moral obligation would be ful
