John Holmes, president.of Swlfl A- Co., world's larcesl packers, sere as much. If nol more, meat In 1953 as In 1053. Busing lilj estimate on Bovernment figures »nrl his own experience, he says our per capita meat consumption this year promises to be Ml pounds as compared .i-llli la.Ws H2 pounds per person. "Current levels of cattle on farms and on feed .should afford significant Increases In volume of caltle of all grades to be dressed throughout 1953 as compared to 1952," he said. He added that while it Is loo early to be posllive, It appears unlikely there will be any significant upswing In the. production of hogs In the year ahead. Poultry, Holmes believes Is Ihe repl "comer" in Ihe meat 1 field. "While the average American Is eating about the same amount of it lev horizon there Is (Ightlnj; In Ko- jei mnrf that war clourts shadow to 20 per cent Increase In supply of commercial broilers over the ..Europe and olher parls o ( t] le [same period last year.

Contrary to popular thinking, our preterit military program is not jmaHnj Urge Inroads on our food .supply. Unless the Korean struggle tls enlarged and the cold 'war else- iVhere gets out of bounds, military ,demands on our national larder twill not materially affect the. picture, tllfder present conditions, only *about five out of every hundred .beef animals will be needed to feed : bur Armed Forces next year, only doten out of every hundrd eggs »nd about five per cent if the feed grains we produce. ;Thal'3 about the same as last year] million over 1951. A further Increase Is expected In 1953," he a'dded. Althonth Swift's president did not dl-KUM 1953 priee*, P. w. Specht, president o( Armour A Co.! world's second lirgest nacken, did toiieh on the aubject flnjerly. Agreeing th»t our total meat supply may be slightly larger than last year, he said, "Predicting price trends In the meat business Is like predicting the weather. Anything can happen. I doubt, however, whether prices will go much lower than they are today and they should rise later on In the ysar, «s they usually do seasonably." Last year's large crop of wheat, corn and other grains in this country and Canada assures us enough meat, dairy and poultry producls. according to c. H. Bell, youthful president of Genera! Mills, world's No. 1 millers. "However, demand /or food n'lll be greater than ever before because of our fast growing population (TOOO more mouths lo feed a day). And we should -enjoy continued high incomes because of defense spending and Industrial expansion. .• '•Therefore." he explained^ "as price Is the balancing factor between supply and demand, it looks as If the demand for food will fairly well kcp up wllh the supply wilh relallvcly small adjustments In prices." Milk Is i vilal part of the American balanced diet. The presidents of both National Dairy. Products Corp.. and the Harden Co., the country's Iwo largest dairy processors, predict more milk for 1953. E. B. -Stewart. .National Dairy's president.-said: "Although the milk cow population has dropped 16 per cent between 1S46 and 1952, the number of people has Increased 25 minion In a decade. However, because of more efficient farm operation and the production per cow running at record levels, the needs of consumers can be met by Ihe Industry this year." Borden's president, Theodore G. Montague, slated, ""Americans will .have a slightly higher milk supply during 1953. The prices of dairy products «•!)). however, be about the same as during the past year. The reason for this Is that the demand for milk and Us products will In- crease'because the population will be greater arid there will be more money In the hands of consumers. General Poods' Igleheart looks forward this year to aclive employ- lent across the nation which should produce a national income at least! to 1952's and prob- nbly higher. Admitting that rropj of a few of iur basic food supplies might run i Itftle behind last year due to unforeseen loral adversities of weather or b'l-lil, |,ls expectation nevertheless Is. thai overall supplies should prove ample and (deviate lo melt Hie demand. ' "III view of these broad expectations and Ihe /act thai the profit margins of those who process and dlslrlbute the nation's Jood products are at an all-time low, consumer food prices generally should be no higher than the average for 1952," he said. Then, to the woman scanning the year ahead from her kllchen window, he forecast that food prices may be even lower in 1853.- SAVE at 1UTT RILL'S!

Plave tlic rallies on your broiler rack and adjust the pan so that the top of the patties Is about 2 Inches from the heat. This way they will broil at a moderate temperature. When the patties are brown on one side—about 8 to 10 minutes—turn, and brown Ihem on Ihe second side. As lor variations, lamb Is always good wllli • fruit.
