W. G. Wysor, general manager of ilit Southern Slates Cooperative Association here, told the committee that the 200.000 farmer members of his organization are "willing to produce to abundance" to meet foreign snd domestic needs. '•"But',.'he said, they are "worried a'fiouY wh'al "certain business in- teitsti »i)ti emigres;," wilt do.

Louisiana, Alabama, Missouri/and Kentucky." Crump recalled days "not so lone West Tennessee .went to Nashville, Louisville and St. Louis. "It is different now, and Memphis is getting 3. large share of this business. Our trade area, for instance, now extends castwardly to the Tennessee River and Includes such thriving Alabama towns as Tuscumbia, • Sheffield, Florence, Decatui', l Huntsville, all of which are friendly to Memphis.

WASHINGTON. Oct. 17. (UP^ — Presideul Truman's food committee was reported today to be cooling to the idea of pint-sized bread loaves to save grain for Europe. It .stepped up H,s efforts, however, to find some means of lining up the nation's brewers and bakers behind the drive to save im extra 100.000.000 bushels of grain by next July. Committee Chairman Charles Luck man mot with the brewers and bakery representatives* yesterday. He sntd he was hopeful a final commitment could be obtained I from both groups by nightfall. Luckman wants a ^"subfltnubia!" cutback in beer production. Because of technical difficulties, there .seemed little pnssibility thnt bakers would be asked to make , ha If-sized bread loaves except in ' are being marketed to some extent, A Unking industry sp-okexvnnn said that- by the time the bakers could switch tn smaller baking pans, the European food crisis would be only | a matter of record.
