Mfir. 20 UP) —Secretary or Agriculture' Clinton p. Anderson Monday promised that continued production increases would bring a long-term Improvement in Ihi;' market for farm products. Speaking before the Jackson County Farm Bureau, Anderson pointed out that In the last-Unit of 1!H5 tin: United stains exported "bout five million tons of wheat, or approximately 10 limes the prewar export, rate. ' Disappointing harvests abroad, lie said, haveheightened the need for Increased emergency relief nt a time when America's own needs were expanding.' "The latest reports show," he wild, "(lint the world this year is producing 12 per cent less food ;>cr person than before the war. In Europe the difference is 20 per cent. And wheat production In Europe Is 36 per ccnl below prewar." He described the present outlook as "considerably worse" than the situation late in 1945. Anderson called on the American public to make every effort to conserve food of all types, particularly grains, and on American farmers to cooperate in the program for increased production. Specifically he asked that they market livestock at normal rather than heavyweights; bring poultry numbers Into line with production goals set for feed conservation, and throw onto the market nil feed not needed for current livestock operations.
