Youths cooked into tirely the fault of the bureaucrats. In normal times, 225 pounds is good average weight for hogs. The American market likes its bacon lean. But for lend-lease purposes, extra production was required, espe- cially to supply lard for the Soviets. So farmers were implored to feed to heavy weights. Came the corn shortage, and farm- ers were implored to stop feeding, market their hogs, and release the corn for shipment to dairy and poul- try areas. Each change was im- plemented by shifts in the federal price supports. But the hog run became phenom- enal. January's slaughter broke all records. Hogs became a glut on the market. Farmers couldn't get near the slaughter houses. They had to keep on feeding. Hogs auto- matically got heavier, at the rate of 15 pounds a week. But if they got over 300 pounds, they passed the support level, and the packers docked them. Fearing to lose money, farmers jammed their hogs into market channels, and the run became chaotic, So now Washington has swung back again, and is inviting farm- ers to feed to heavier weights. The support price has been extended to 330 pounds. Note: Probably no decision of War Food administration was made with greater reluctance, and the support price wiU be reduced again as soon as the hog run tapers off. i s $ MERRY-GO-ROUND {Washington real estate agents are evading price ceilings by requiring new tenants to decorate apartments at their own expense To pack 'era in tighter, a Washington bus driver called out, "Push to the back, folks, and get together like you were in church." {I.
