WFA Issues Set-Aside Order on Beef for Armed Service Needs Washington, {J)_The war food administration Thursday issued a revised beef set-aside order designed to assure the armed services their lull requirements. Beginning Jan. 7, packers operating under federal inspection will be required to hold temporarily their total production of choice good and commercial grades of steers and heifers. The armed services will then select 60 per cent of such meat fitting army specifications. The remainder will be released for civilians. .1 Heretofore, these packers have been required to set aside only 60 per cent of such beef for the armed services. Officials said, however, that in some cases the full 60 per cent set-aside did not meet army specifications and that consequently the military services did not always get their full requirements.
