Soys Cattle Industry Is Sabotaged Little Rock, Nov. 22 .— (IP)— No industry in America is "in such a .state 'of chaos, suffering from threats, orders and directives" as the livestock and meat industry, W. W. Fuque, Jefferson City, Mo . field director for the Producers Livestock Association of St. Louis, said today. "I feel that our industry is being sabotaged by a group of dreamers •that are more interested in social reform than the production of food," Fuque said in an address prepared for delivery at the livestock panel meeting of the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation's convention here.

"We'll have to coordinate our thinking for tomorrow with the existing today," he said. "Sharing scarcity, invasion of substitutes, price ceilings and the like are dangerous to the food busi- •ness only in their retention. As long as they can be confined to the wartime emergency, there's hope for 'business as usual" in the future. "Shifting -from a program of sharing scarcity to one of production to meet wartime food requirements WiH make a difference of more cheese, more butter, more eggs, more milk, more beef and other basic foods."

Death Delays Hou^e Action on Subsidy Washington. Nov. 22 —(/I 1 )— Two sudden deaths among the Hous membership today delayed at leas a day a showdown vote on th administration's consumer- subsid program, and removed from the scene one of the leading figures In the bitter subsidy dispute.

Sten^ill, stricken with n heart attack, had as chairman of Hie banking committee wielded powerful influence in this dispute, playing an important role in lining up form state opposition to consumer- subsidies. , His death automatically elevated Rep.

Spcnce has taken the position "subsidies should be sustained nder the present circumstances in icw of congress' instruction to the resident to hold the line." While the two deaths will delay ic house decision in the controvcr- y, it was not expected to affect ic outcome. Even the most opli- nislic of President Roosevelt's tnlwarts on capitol hill have conceded privately the measure banning subsidies will be passed by a substantial margin. The subsidy vote had been sched- ilcd for this afternoon, to be fol- owcd with debate on the new tax bill.

Administralionists and anti-New Dealers alike have expressed dissatisfaction with the measure, already passed by the House. Senator Wheeler (D-Mont) told reporters the legislation would have no effect upon the taking of fathers since it "lacks force." Wheeler said the compromise proposal, which grew out of his original bill lo prohibit induction of parents this year, is at best "an expression of congressional feeling that fathers should be taken only as a lost resort."

The plea, routine because a defendant may not plead guilty to first degree murder, was taken speedily before general sessions Judge George L. Donncllan. Lonergan did not speak during the procedure. His chief counsel, Edward V. Broderick, entered the plea and an associate counsel sought and received 10 days to file motions. Broderick told reporters later ho arrangements had been made to have a psychiatric examination of the defendant. Assistant District Attorney Jacob Grumet said outside the courtroom he hoped to bring Lonergan to trial "some time in January." The tall, slender Canadian serviceman was taken into custody in Toronto soon after his wife's body had been found, strangled and beaten, in her Beekman Hill triplex apartment.

She looked at her mother, and added, "I knew what you wanted. Mrs. Frank Edgar. Not bad at all. I thought jerhaps I'd like it, too, But it looks as if I'd been jilted, in a sense." She added carelessly, "As I just overheard Frank asking Emily to marry him." Millicent gasped. She said, star- .ng at her daughter: "You overheard that?" "I did.

He said, he'd ask her again." "She's a fool," said Millicent with energy. "She's an idealist," said Nancy, or maybe it's a realist. I wouldn't know.

Adamson .said, "regulates and supervises the keen competition between its contractors. It lays down and enforces the ground rules of the game. No contractor, for example, can make any change in process, method or technique, which in any way involves safety and security, without prior approval of the Ordnance Department. It is a fixed Ordnance i policy that operating costs shall never be reduced in any instance at the expense of personal safety. "Experience has demonstrated that production incentives other than those of a purely financial nature are very effective. Personnel and plant rivalry between Ordnance operating contractors, resulting in a safe reduction of operating costs, is saving American taxpayers many millions of dollars a year."
