WHWDtDAY, 18, 194t upply of Stored teat at New High Summer Shortage Will B« Eased Only Slightly, However By Vincent Kurke Inlted Frew Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON. Feb. 18. irjp, _ he nation's meat packers ami holesalers are holding more meal i storae* today tliari in any peace- me. year since 1937 Is a re-Milt. the meat shortage Js Summer—while almost certain i be bad — may not be ijtiite as ad as the Agriculture Department rcdicted. in making up tiieir fore- a-sts. department officials said, hey iDiderestlmaled the amount, of leal that would be "held off" the lent counter this Winter and put i .storage. •But they Mid the improvement. i tiie summer supply outlook re- ulting from tliis miscalculation is oo small to assure any significant elicf. For example, your share of the Hion pounds of meat now Ifi stor- ge oniv amounts to about four id a half pounds. Normally, the packers and whole- alers hold out about 3.2 pound.s per apita Irom the heavy Winter aughtoring to store for dislribu- ion during the Summer slump m leat output. But with the impending meat lortage they figured it was good 'Usmess to boost their storage hold- ngs this year. Coolers 90 Per Cent Pull The packers' coolers were filled 0 90 per cent of capacity and their reeaers to '17 per cent of capacity in Feb. 1. Iri Michigan they were lied to capacity. Private and semi- irivate warehouse coolers and free/.- •rs throughout, the nation were hree-foutths filled. The Agriculture Department re- orted yesterday that cold storage neat holdings on Feb. 1 totaled 1,10.000,000 pounds. Theoretically, that amounts :o bout, seven pounds per capita. Put agriculture meat experts fif»- j^)hat 2.5 pounds will never leave le -storage pipelines. That repre- ents what the trade calls it.s min- mnm "working stocks." Even dur- ng the "meat famine" in October. 646. when farmers stopped sending linlals lo market because of price eilings. storage holdings never fell x-low about 1.5 pounds per capita. Tne heavier - than - anticipated ock.s of meat that went into stor- ie this winter don't change the griculture Department's estimate lat meat supplies per capita—for he year—will be 10 to 13 pounr'.s elow last year's 156 pounds. "If we were making a new esti- ate today on per capita consnmp- on" one expert said, "we would ill keep Ihe figure at 143-Hfl joundi. But. we might take some it of the Winter quarter and put ' in the Spring or Summer qilar- rs." Eisenhower Swears Bradley In as Chief of Staff r »«L D rtT l H 0 '.
