In the event brokers are employed, fees paid should not exceed those customary in the trade.

$ 1700.6 Price. Efforts should be made to obtain a price which will result in the maximum return to the Government, taking into account the policies to be effectuated, Office of Price Administration maximum prices, and all relevant circumstances such as quality, quantity, condition, pack, etc. However, the purchaser may be given the benefit of all discounts and allowances normally granted in the trade, and allowances on account of swells, relabeling, reconditioning, etc.

Transfers to other Federal agencies shall be at a fair valuation to be fixed by the disposal agency, unless transfer without reimbursement or transfer of funds is otherwise authorized by law.

Disposals made for school or educational use, or for health or medical purposes, pursuant to section 13 (a) (1) of the Surplus Property Act, shall be at a valuation which takes into consideration any benefit which has accrued or may accrue to the United States from such use. If the Surplus Property Board has acted to fix such valuation its action in this respect shall be regarded as controlling.

Commodities for which the War Food Administration has price-support programs in effect at the time of the sale, and food processed from such commodities, shall not be sold (except for export or abroad in accordance with $ 1700.9) at prices which will be disruptive of such programs or the market generally. Before such a commodity is sold as surplus below the support price, or food processed from a commodity is sold at a price which will not reflect the support price, there must be a finding by the War Food Administration that the sale at the proposed price will not unduly disrupt the price-support program involved.

Surplus farm commodities shall not be sold in the United States (except for export) at prices less than those applicable with respect to sales of such commodities by Commodity Credit Corpora


* Section 2 of Public Law 30, April 12, 1945, suspends section 381 (c) of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938 (which prohibits Commodity Credit Corporation from selling cotton at a price which is not sufficient to reimburse it for its investment in the cotton) until the expiration of the two year period beginning with the first day of January immediately following the date on which the President, by proclamation, or the Congress, by concurrent resolution, declares that hostilities in the present war have terminated; and during the period of such suspension prohibits Commodity Credit Corporation from selling any farm commodity owned or controlled by it at less than the parity or comparable price therefor with the following exceptions: "(1) sales for new or byproduct uses; (2) sales of peanuts for the extraction of oil; (3) sales for export; (4) sales for seed or feed: Provided, Tha wheat or corn shall be sold for feed at less than parity price for corn at the time such sale is made: And provided further, That in making regional adjustments in the sale price of corn or wheat for feed, the minimum price need not be higher in any area than the United States average parity price for corn; (5) sales of commodities which have substantially deteriorated in quality or of nonbasic perishable commodities where there is danger of loss or waste through spoilage; or (6) sales for the purpose of establishing claims against persons who have committed fraud, misrepresentation, or other wrongful acts with respect to the commodity. The method that is now used for the purposes of Commodity Credit Corporation loans for determining the parity price or its equivalent for seven-eighths-inch Middling cotton at the average location used in fixing the base loan rate for cotton shall also be used for determining the parity price for seveneighths-inch Middling cotton at such average location

for the purposes of this section."

Public Law 52, May 5, 1945, Department of Agriculture Appropriation Act, 1946, which would apply during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1946, contains virtually the same limitations on sales by Commodity Credit Corporation of farm commodities below the parity or comparable price except that the exception with respect to perishable commodities applies to "perishable fruits, vegetables, and animal products if there is danger of deterioration or of accumulation of stocks."

* Maximum prices for sales of food by Government agencies are covered by OPA Supplementary Order 81.

by the Federal Government or any state or local government, or to any nonprofit or charitable organization. The findings of the agency, together with information as to the identity of the donee, shall be incorporated in a complete written statement, a copy of which shall be filed with the Director of Surplus Property and Reconversion, War Food Administration, Washington, D. C., within thirty days after the donation takes place. No surplus agricultural commodities or surplus foods processed from agricultural commodities shall be donated except under the circumstances and on the conditions provided in this section.

Commodities which are so far deteriorated that they are obviously unfit for any use whatsoever and present a serious problem of storing and handling may be destroyed immediately but in such cases a written declaration that such destruction was necessary for the stated reasons shall be promptly filed with the Director of Surplus Property and Reconversion, War Food Administration, Washington, D. C. Where the deterioration is not such that immediate destruction is necessary, the following steps must be taken in advance of destruction:

(a) Public notice of the proposed destruction given thirty days in advance.

(b) The filing of copies of such notice with the Surplus Property Board and the Director of Surplus Property and Reconversion, War Food Administration, Washington, D. C., at the beginning of the thirty-day period.

(c) An attempt during the thirty-day period to dispose of the commodity other than by destruction.

(d) The filing of a statement describing all steps which have been taken to dispose of the commodity with the Director of Surplus Property and Reconversion at the beginning of the thirtyday period and a supplementary statement at the close of the period.

$ 1700.8 Consumer protection; inspection, etc. All reasonable safeguards and precautions shall be taken in cooperation with Federal, State, and local health authorities, to ensure that foods which are unfit for human consumption do not go into food uses.

Before any commodity is disposed of for food uses, it must be inspected to determine its fitness for human consumption. Items found to be unfit for human consump

tion must be segregated under Government supervision. Only those portions fit for human consumption may be sold for food uses or to buyers who may put them to such uses. Unfit items may be sold only for reconditioning or reprocessing for food uses or for industrial or nonfood purposes under circumstances and on conditions which will assure that the items are so used. If this cannot be done, destruction may be necessary under the terms of g 1700.7.

$ 1700.9 Sales for export. Food and food products which are located in the United States shall not be sold for export unless it is first determined that, (a) there is no shortage of the commodity in the United States and that the proposed sale or disposal will not result in such shortage, and (b) the commodity is not needed to supply the normal demands of consumers in the United States. Such determinations shall be made by the War Food Administration.

Export sales may be made of any farm commodity or product thereof at competitive world prices without regard to the restrictions stated in $ 1700.6, but only upon an adequate and properly secured undertaking of the purchaser that the commodity will not later be imported into the United States.

$ 1700.10 Sales of commodities abroad. Commodities located abroad shall promptly be returned to the United States upon the issuance of a declaration and finding by the War Food Administration that commodities of that type or character are in short supply in the United States and that such return is in the public interest. In the absence of such a finding, commodities located abroad, notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this part, shall be sold or otherwise disposed of abroad upon such terms and conditions and employing such methods of sale or disposition and priority of offering as seem reasonable under all of the circumstances: Provided, That if the War Food Administration determines that a commodity of the same type or character as the commodity located abroad is being exported from the United States and specifies a minimum sales price for the commodity located abroad, sales of such commodity shall not be made at a price below such minimum sales price. Records shall be kept of all disposals abroad and they
