congressman wants sprouts on military menus - Gubser Seeks To Have Sprouts On Military Menus...
Gubser Seeks To Have Sprouts On Military Menus Depressed market conditions for fresh and frozen Brussels sprouts today prompted Congressman Charles S. Gubser to contact secretaries of the army, navy and air force requesting that Brussels sprouts be included on the master menus of the military services in the immediate future. Sprout growers in the Santa Cruz area have received less than the cost of production due to an oversupply. In contacting the service secretaries Gubser said: "This is one way that we can consume some of the surplus sprouts and perhaps give a little stimulation to a very depressed market. ''In my opinion services have an obligation to assist in consum ing surplus agricultural commodi ties provided they are acceptable and desirable as food. Certainly Brussels sprouts fit this category." Detective Work
