In the light of this abundance it appears possJ,ble that the war-time ration program may disappear soon on many items. Apples, however, will continue in short supply, and ceiling regula- tions are expected to eo.ntinue all this year at least. The jobbing and rlemil trade fully realize that there are not enough apples to go around and they are hoping that the growers and ship, pers will try to spread these spples as evenly as possibl and where they are needed most. Tie-Ins A'lready Used Even bef0re theappl season gets under way, retail dealers dread this season's apple deal. The reason for this is the fact that top grades of Eastern appl are already being tied in with to- matoes or some other "surplus commodity. Ceiling prices on Eas- tern apples is $4.75 and many dealers are being forced to buy one lug of tomatoes, or same other item, with every box of ap- ples. This brings the cost of the apples to around $5.25. Some dealers are also forcing retailers to take. apples of unclass- ified grades with U. S. No. 1 grades and charging top ceiling all the way through. It is also reported*that same dealers bill their customers for legal amounts in their invoices with extra tri- bute demanded on the side. It's been said before that it's the little independent retailer who gets hurt and this is the way It happens : How Black Market Works Mr. Black Market buys two cars of apples from Mr. Grower Consult Us About Your and will have these shippea to some large city.

Oraak lottling Wor, UmaK -- Utstmbutor m The jobber or wholesaler is then forced to use ;the same tac- tics on the retailer, who finds it very difficult to carry on this same procedure with the consum- er. He cannot very well say to Mrs. Housewife, "If you want t buy a few apples, you must also buy a pound of tomatoes or string beans." He naturally must take th risk of selling his ad)ples above ceilirtg or taking the loss--which is what most dealers do. These dealers, however, do not relish this situation--some of them even condemn all growersand shippers and accuse them of working alorg with the Black-Marketers. Forced To Break Law Some of the most respectable dealers are practically forced to break the law in order to supply their customers. Many of these dealers do no like the idea of pa- tronizing the black market but have no choice simply because their competitors are handling ap- ples and consumer demand forces them to go out and pay any price. Some naturally, have refused to complain for fear they would an- tagonize their source of supply. Government agencies have now adopted new tactics in their clean- up campaign against shippers and distributors alleged to en- gaged in black marketing, tie-in sales and other unlawful practices which caused shortages or boosted prices during the war. They are no longer out to get the little cor- ner market but ar concentrating on the majar offenders on a na- tion-wide scale. Disregard Others In Crisis Only recently a gan.g of black market operators were rounde up'in New York City. The govern- ment invest'ga:ors got their in- formation from retailers and job- bers and by putting the pressure on hcm, p:overnment agents were able to collect evidence. When these ring leaders are caught and the squeeze play is put on them they talk volumes ,.nd care little who:: t'ey involve in order to save th",melves.
