Maritime Commission and Alabama Docks Director Henry Sweet differed .sharply today over what to do with some 1,515 pounds of Argentine beef, kept in froz.en storage here for over a year.

Some of the meat wa.s sold as food during the past year when it was unloaded, lie said, and the rest lias been In freezers for a, never having been lhawed. The Maritime Commission lias refused lo allow sale of the meat under laws banning Importation of fresh Argentine beef. It was unloaded here a year ago from ships which were later decommissioned.
