FAGB TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21, 1948 Brewers Warned By US. Official Anderson Proposes [ Agreement Limiting UM of Scare* Grain WASHINGTON, Jan. 21. (UP) — Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson yesterday asked the nation's brewers to voluntarily cut their use of grain 20 per cent, or lie would ask Congress for power to force them to It. Andenon ipoke at a meeting of brewers called to work out a voluntary Industry agreement to save .grain. He first recommended a 20 per cent cut in beer production. Then he changed it to a 30 per cent cut in grain use this year, as com- pered with last year. A spokesman for the big brewers, opposing Anderson's suggestion, said the 30 per cent grain curtailment would decrease beer production from 15 to 20 per cent. He said this would mean a beer "shortage" of a limited nature and probably "higher beer prices." A spokesman lor the small brewers said Anderson's proposal would not curtail production at all because brewers could change the brewing formula. Anderson Issued his warning to a committee of eight industry members who met to try to work out an agreement alter the general meeting. "If you can't reach an agreement, I'm prepared to ask Congress !ov power to do it tor you," he told them. It was the same warning that Anderson gave the nation's distillers a month ago when they failed to reach agreement on voluntary train conservation. Congress sub- | uquentiy passed a law empowering Anderson to allocate grain use by the distillers during the month o! January. The Senate Banking Committee has approved.a stop-gap bill to extend the distillery allocation power through February, while a longer- term measure is being considered. Anderson told the Brewers thut. •onservatlon measures would be necessary at least until June 30, because of 'the grain shortage. William O'Shea, Chicago, secretary of the Small Brewers Committee which- claims to represent 300 •f the nation's 450 brewers, said the present program was a "fraud" on .th* American people. He called tor Anderson either to recommend a program limiting use of all grains —"if we are trying [o save grain"— tar Impose no limitations at all.
