' An electrical attachment lor typc- uriter.s thi-.t counts the \\ords i.s they are typed has been patented By GRANT DII.LMAN linltcil Cress Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. (UP) — The administration today swung into an all-out drive to get Americans to overhaul their mating habits to avert famine In Western Europe and break the stranglehold of high prices at home. President Truman himself will spearhead the dramatic campaign. It Is aimed at persuading people to use less wlieat, meat, poultry and dairy products to tree an additional 100,000,000 bushels of grain for Europe. The President will appeal directly to the nation lo back up his program on an all-networks radio program at 9:30 p.m., CST, Sunday. Secretary of State George C. Marshall also will speak. They will tell the people vety frankly that they either can support the five-point food conservation program outlined by Mr. '^u- man's new Citizens Food Committee, or resign themselves to a further spread of Communism In Europe. Committee Chairman Charles Uickman. in announcing the program said the emphasis will be on •-isting less rather than eating less. Americans still should cat all they need, he said. Hut he said housewives shoulc shop for cheaper cuts of meats. If they continue to insist on fancy Brack's, farmers will use desperately needed grain to fatten cattle anc consumer competition will drivi prices hiyhcr and higher. I iiekman also urged housewives to cut down on family food portions, discourage second helpings, use left-over foods wisely and watch their cooking techniques. Meat which is overcooked for instance, shrinks sharply. ['lead for Co-operation If the public will go along with this pro?ram, he said, it will serve the [Jouble purpose of driving dow-n prices and diverting grain overseas. Supporting Luckman's statements, (he Agriculture Department said Americans could save up to 00.000.- CGO bushels of corn simply by not Insisting on choice meat. It snld that much grain is used to fatten -•it'.lc to prime condition. Reaction to the program svas mixed. Most housewives polled Indicated they would go alons. The Mntional Millers Federation doubted the program would save 100.000.- COO bushels of grain. Some ernups i thought the President should have j recommended more drastic action. J Dcvc'.onmcnts included: 1. Americans for Democratic Ac- • tion. headed by former housing ex- • pediter Wilson Wyatt, said the proposals fell "(rasically short" of the rejil need. It. ur^eti an Immediate return to wartime price and rationing controls, as did former Vice President Henry Wallace 2. Secretary of Commerce Averell W. Hnrrimnn said voluntary measures must be used in the crisis because they are only weapons ";\inst hunasr at hand, nut He carefully lelt open the door to -i Politician Killed As Auto Explodes possible later request for controls. 3. Undersecretary of State Robert, Lovett said Europe may need ts much as $800,000,01X1 to tide it over until the long-range Marshall pUn goes Into effect. He said Mr. Amman's previous figure of $580.- WO.OOO was a rock-bottom estimate. 4, Secretary of Agriculture Clinon P Anderson, emphasizing the iced for keeping the lid on prices, Id that each time wheat goes up 50 cents a bushel 11 costs the lation about $2,500,000,000 in tlie orm of higher prices. Shun Talk of Compulsion Luckmaa avoided talk of compulsory controls. He said they are outside the province of his 36- member committee. He also said .here had been no decision on whether to propose a couple oi meatless days a week. But he said the committee will .alk to distillers and other indus- :rlal grain users to enlist them in the drive.
