- \ Dail; iste* Efficiency in Operation NEW YORK—Ralph W. Burger, president of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, today urged the nation's food industry to strive for greater efficiency in its operations in order to further narrow the spread between farm and retail prices. In a statement launching a month-long celebration of the nation's oldest food chain's 94th anniversary, Mr. Burger cautioned the industry against wasteful practices that might tend to increase the cost of food to consumers or reduce returns to producers. "The entire food industry, from producer to distributor, has given the American people the highest standard of eating in the world today," Burger said. "The average family in this country has a better and more varied diet and spends a smaller percentage of its income on food than do the residents of any other country. But if we are to remain the best-fed nation, we must continue to seek new and better ways of producing and distributing food." r Oquawka Stars Fete Two on Birthday OQUAWKA — The Oquawka Chapter Order Eastern Star met Monday evening, with Mrs. Julia Smith presiding in the absence of the worthy matron, Wilma Yan- Tine, who is attending grand chap* ter in Chicago.
