Seizure ol cattle to break up hoarding aiul get meat into the cities were indicated, possibly within a few days, as the first 'of several moves to combat the worsening shortage. Col. .Hugh B. Hester, chief of tl" American Military Govcrnincn Food and Farm Division, said then was no reason for panic. He called the situation about the same as last year. Hester, a former Durham. N.

He said the lirst portions of the greatest food shipment since the occupation was no;v reaching Gev- many. The shipment consists of 43U.COO to 450,000 tons of bread grains, more than 100,000 tons alxjvc any previous month. Similar shipments in June and July, he said, should get the situation back into balance. Shipments had been unbalanced by diversion to other areas of food oriy- inally earmarked for Germany. pispalches from -Austria said the fo<4fc position there had improved temporarily. The average calory levtfj|;i Vienna was reported at 1550. up from ils low of 1400. There were no reserves available, however, to tide Hie country over until the harvest. Hester said almost all potatoes in Western Germany were gone, partly because they had been fed to cattle. One high official said the seizure of cattle could be necessary because "you cannot have people yoing hungry while cattle are. being fed."
