MUST HOLD DOWN MILK USE Increase Would Mean Extending Restrictions Washington, (fP)--Civilian ' milk consumption must be held at present levels or quota restrictions now in effect in 112 areas will be extended to other localities, the office of war information said Friday in a report on the national milk and cream supply situation. Estimates o£ the bureau of .agricultural economics, indicate that milk production during 1944 will decline to 110,000.000,000 pounds, 6,000,000,000 pounds 'under the war food administration goal of 122,000,000,000 pounds, the OWI said. The WFA said farmers would have to increase their dairy herds by 2 per cent in the year, and increase production per cow by 50 pounds, to attain the production ;oal. ' · ' The survey said the 1914 milk output· depends entirely on the cattle feed'situatioh. The total feed supply is large, but the number of animals dependent on it is even larger, the OWI found. Maldistri- bution of feed, with serious local shortages in prospect, could adversely affect milk production. Local feed shortages, eased by emergency -action last fall, nevertheless caused a decrease in 1943 production to 118,235,000,000 pounds, down more than a billion pounds sinice 1942, when an all-time production record of 119,240,000,000 pounds was set. The quota restrictions nSw in effect in 112 areas limit fluid milk deliveries to the June, 1943 levels Deliveries of cream and milk byproducts such as cottage cheese are limited to 75 per cent of June, 1943, totals in the same areas. The ,OWI said coupon rationing of milk products was unlikely un- ess quota restrictions are exceeded in .the 112 areas o£ limited use. The information agency said, however, that limitation orders "probably will" be invoked in areas not now under quota restriction. DIES AT BALTIMORE Cresco -- Word has been Friday, Jan. 21, 1944 3 MASON CITV GLOBE-GAZETTE Delinquency Bureau in Minneapolis Minneapolis--First official step by licensed tavern men as a group to combat juvenile delinquency was made here today with formation of, a new corporation, Minneapolis Service Bureau. This move was instigated as a result of a recent meeting of tavern owners which culminated in naming a committee to investigate the situation and devise some concrete plan of sifting youths from their patronage. · "Minneapolis becomes the first' city, to our knowledge, in setting up a group control towards curbing delinquency among under-age boys and girls. The plan will undoubtedly sweep the country because of its simplicity," said Arthur Murray, Red Feather cafe, who Was named president. "We believe our efforts in the organization of an identification bureau, appointment of capable, well trained women as special police to work with present law enforcement agencies--all financed by our own funds^-will be welcomed by the public as an^indi cation that the industry as a' whole means business," said Murray.. All licensed dealers will be extended the opportunity of co-operating with the bureau. However, it will not replace existing organ- I izations but supplement their [ work. As the group is not to be con- I ducted for profit there will be no | capital stock issued, said James I Ryan, Covered Wagon, elected I secretary-treasurer.
