TRANSLATING LOCAL RISES TO THE NATIONAL SCENE, the Department of Labor's Bureau of Statistics has figured that prices of 28 basic commodities have ascended by 33 per cent since V-J Day, of which rise 23 per cent has occurred since the beginning of this month.

As of July 12, present price levels lack only 10 per cent of equalling the January 1920 peak, according to the Department of Labor. Up until the June 30 suspension of OPA, the seven-year price rise of this war equalled that of a four-and-a-half year period in the last. Samples of the latest market increases, from another source, show hides up 74 per cent since June 29; shellac up 80 per cent; cocoa beans up 65 per cent; and foodstuffs up 30 per cent.
