How much cain it can raise with the national pocket-book until August 20 continues to depend upon the cash restraint that buyers can show towards still scarce foods, clothing--even automobiles.

The following price complaints have been reported since Tuesday: Liggett's  frappes, up to $.25 milkshakes, up to $.20 Mike's Club  frappes, up to $.20 Bella Vista Restaurant  spaghetti dinner, from $1 to $1.10 (Similar increases on other items) Hazen's  grilled cheese sandwich, $.15 to $.20 College Drug Store  all ice cream items up
