tity tag. Fish of approved quality are marked "Inspected Whitefish;" fish which when taken were not of acceptable standard but have been brought to proper level of quality by filleting, candling, or other means of processing are marked "Inspected Processed Whitefish;" and whitefish from waters, not surveyed must be marked "Identity Tag--Non-Inspected Whitefish."

Inspection is arranged between Federal authorities and the three Prairie governments. The system is also applicable to the Northwest Territories, where fishery administration is in Dominion hands, but where commercial fishing is not yet extensive.

The inspection system was instituted to assist the Prairie fishing industry to overcome marketing difficulties and to assure consumers of obtaining whitefish of satisfactory quality.

IMPORT CONTROL OF FISHERY PRODUCTS SHIFTED TO WFA

Transfer from the WPB to, the WFA of administrative functions and regulations in connection with the importation of certain foods was announced jointly November 8 by the two agencies. In line with the policy of the two agencies of easing controls as supply, shipping, and other strategic considerations permit, removal of 38 food items and 15 WPB items from import control was simultaneously announced. This action became effective November 13, 1944.

Using the pattern of WPB Order M-63, WFA has issued WFO-63 covering the importation of food into the continental United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Under this order an authorization from WFA is required to import foods subject to the order. Anyone desiring this authorization should apply to the Office of Distribution, War Food Administration, Washington 25, D. C., on Form WPB-1041.

Applications that have been made to WPB for authorization to import foods need not be resubmitted, and if action on such applications has not been made by WPB, it will be completed by WFA. Authorizations issued by WPB under M-63 will be considered valid under the WFA order until their respective expiration dates. Customs entries against outstanding authorizations on foods will continue to be reported on Form WPB-1040.

In the transfer WFA has removed from import control the following fishery items:

Dog food
Certain fatty alcohols and fatty acids, sulphated, and salts of fatty acids,
sulphated, n. s.p.f. (not specifically provided for in the order)
Hydrogenated or hardened oils and fats (animal or vegetable)
Whale oil, other than sperm
Seal oil

Supplemental General Imports Order M-63-a covering the importation of certain articles from Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador is revoked as of November 13, 1944, by the WPB.

Provisions of this order are being incorporated in both the WFA order for foods and the amended M-63 for WPB articles. Import control will continue to be exercised over the commodities formerly listed in M-63-a--for the WPB articles, through the transfer of commodities to List II of Order M-63; and for foods under the WFA order, by specific reference in the provisions of WF0-63. WFA has included the following in the group of commodities subject to such control:

Alewives and other pickled or salted fish, n, s.p.f.
Herring (including sprats, pilchards, and anchovies), all types
Canned sardines, anchovies, and tuna
Pickled or salted cod, haddock, hake, pollock, and cusk
Certain animal oils
Fish meal and scrap

Since Supplemental General Imports Order M-63-8 covers the importation of certain food items only into the Virgin Islands of the United States and Puerto Rico, WPB also revoked this order. Its provisions are being incorporated in the body of WFO-63.

NEW IMPORT FORMS REQUIRED BY WFA

After December 1, importers are required to file a new customs entry form (WF0-63-1) for the importation into the United States of foods controlled by WF0-63. This form replaces WPB-1040.

Wholesale and retail prices for foods showed little change between mid-September and mid-October, according to reports issued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the Department of Labor. The Bureau's wholesale index for foods did not change, while the retail index dropped 0.4 percent. Retail indexes covering prices of fresh, frozen, and canned fish indicated gains in the cost of such items to consumers during the month.

Compared with wholesale and retail prices of mid-October in 1943, the 1944 prices for October showed a distinct decrease.
