"FOR THE SAKE OF AMERICA'S FUTURE"
The Grocer-Consumer Anti-Inflation Campaign
Now Is the time when we must carefully guard against an inflation that would
prevent the return to a peacetime balance between supply and demand. Looking
back over the inflationary experiences which followed World War I, we must
face the fact that the most critical period in our present price control program
may arise in the months just ahead. The time to control living costs is now.
Military victories do not immediately remove the dangers of inflation. Almost
half of the inflation of the World War I period occurred AFTER THE ARM-
ISTICE. For 20 months after World War I prices rose faster than during the
Thanks to the amazing production of American farmers and the cooperation
of the majority of food manufacturers, wholesalers, retail growers and house-
wives and thanks to the unstinting patriotic efforts of local War Price and
Rationing Board volunteers, food prices in this war have been controlled far
more effectively than in World War I. Today America has a firm grip on food
prices. So long as there are any wartime scarcities and so long as large portions
of our income comes from war production, heavy price pressures will remain.
These pressures continue to be a serious threat to the economic security of
American families and of the food industry. The grocery trade, women's organ-
izations, and OPA, have cooperatively planned a nation wide series of GROCER-

CONSUMER ANTI-INFLATION DRIVES for October, November and December
of 1944. The theme is "LET'S ALL TEAM UP TO KEEP PRICES DOWN FOR
THE SAKE OF AMERICA'S FUTURE."
Reticence on the part of both grocer and customer on the whole subject of .i
ceiling prices is unquestiomably the most difficult problem we have to face in
getting compliance with retail food price control. The average housewife, either
because of insufficient knowledge of her rights and her responsibilities or because
of fear of embarrassment or petty reprisals, does not check and question prices
freely and candidly.
While the vast majority of grocers are perfectly honest and willing to comply
with the regulations, they hesitate to invite questions about ceiling prices and
often fail to post ceiling price lists where they can be seen easily by the greatest
number of people at the most opportune time, in spite of the abvious merchandis-
ing advantages of doing so. The result is that many overcharges, intentional or
otherwise, go uncorrected.
As long as this reticence exists, it seems apparent that we cannot count on
adequate support of the food price control compliance program on the part of
either consumers or grocers. THE JOB IS TO OVERCOME THAT RETICENCE.
GROCERS are conducting a nation wide drive to do three things:
1. Be sure that all of their prices are at, or below, ceilings.
2. Post ceiling price lists where they can be read easily by the public.
3. Display store posters and run advertisements inviting customers to use the
ceiling price lists and frankly ask questions about apparent overcharges.
WOMEN'S ORGANIZATIONS are asking their members to:
1. Use copies of "ANTI-INFLATION GROCERY LIST" to compare the prkQes
of their regular grocery purchases with the prices on the official ceiling price lists
displayed in grocery stores.
2. Question grocers frankly about apparent overcharges and commend them
when their price lists are well posted and all prices are at, or below, ceiling.
3. For the protection of the vast majority of honest grocers, report uncorrected
overcharges to the Price Panel of War Price and Rationing Boards.
Local War Price and Rationing Boards will be glad to assist local grocers,
organizations, and individuals wishing to participate in this campaign.
The Department of Agriculture is asking all state and local agricultural
agencies to cooperate with local GROCER-CONSUMER ANTI-INFLATION
CAMPAIGNS. All of Agriculture's Food Fights for Freedom media will be
devoted to this campaign during October, November, and December "FOR THE 7:
SAKE OF AMERICA'S FUTURE."
