    IN THE BEGINNING OF THE FILM, VARIOUS WOMEN ARE SHOWN ORGANIZING THE BOYCOTT .....CALLING THEIR FRIENDS, ETC. PLAN IS FOR EACH WOMAN TO CALL FIVE FRIENDS AND TRY TO GET EACH OF THEM TO PROMISE TO BOYCOTT MEAT UNTIL PRICES ARE LOWERED.

    THE ANGER GOT ITS IMPETUS WHEN RETAILERS RECENTLY ANNOUNCED THERE WOULD BE NEW MEAT PRICE HIKES IN THIS AREA. AROUSED HOUSE-WIVES IN A SCORE OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COMMUNITIES THIS MORNING WILL BEGIN A TWO WEEK BOYCOTT OF FRESH MEAT. THE MOVE IS REPORTED TO HAVE THE BACKING OF WOMEN IN ALL INCOME GROUPS. ONE OF THE MOVEMENT'S LEADERS IS PERT MRS. BARBARA CRILL (CQ) OF GLENDORA:
    THE LADIES HOPE THE MOVEMENT WILL SNOWBALL -- THEY PHONE FRIENDS URGING THEM IN TURN TO CALL AT LEAST FIVE OTHER WOMEN.

    THE CATTLEMEN ARE NOT UNCONCERNED. THEY WILL CONFER ON A PLAN SEEKING RETAILER CO-OPERATION IN HOLDING MEAT PRICES AT REASONABLE LEVELS DURING THE CURRENT TEMPORARY SHORTAGE OF SLAUGHTER CATTLE. GEORGE TUCKER, MANAGER OF THE CALIFORNIA CATTLE FEEDERS ASSOCIATION, COMMENTED:
    TUCKER PREDICTED AN EASING OF THE TIGHT CATTLE SUPPLY SITUATION WITHIN THE NEXT FEW FEEKS....AND FURTHER, IT WASHIS VIEW THAT THE CURRENT PRICES ARE NOT UNREASONABLY HIGH WHEN COMPARED WITH OTHER COMMODITIES AND WAGES.
