PACK rwo BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Food-Saving Plan Jogs Meat Prices Cocts Drop Slightly Due to Meatiest Days, Luckman D*«lai*» CHICAGO,' Nev. • I. (UP)—fehalr- muh Charles Luckmui of the Cit- Uens-Pood Committee said yestcr- day^jhat meatless Tuesdays have forced nw«t prices down slightly, He 9*ld: that' the price of meat h»d "dropped slightly, but not nearly enough." The drop, he said, w:is due to "slackening of public d«mind as the result of meatless Tuwdays." Luckman, at a news conference. Mid that the voluntary food saving program was ''rolling along nicely," and had reached the conservation 'level expected of It at the outset. He quoted a national survey which •bowed that 48 per cent of the people observed the first meatless Tuesday, and 46 per cent observed the flr»t pouHryless Thursday. An independent survey in the Chicago area, he said, showed that on the second and third meatless Tuesday 26 per cent of 500 families polled ate meat. On the second and third poultryless Thursdays, he said, the survey showed that 16 per cent ate poultry or poultry products. HOgf Weight* Effected Luckman said the program has prompted f&tmers to market their hogs at lighter weights, llius saving grain which would have been fed" to the hogs. On Oct. 1, before the program began, Lurkman said the average weight of hogs slaughtered In the U. S. was 240 pounds. In the first week of October, he said, the average weight fell to 21Q pounds. Luckman acknowledged that the high price of corn and hog feed had something to do with the decline, but he said most of the saving resulted from slackened demand for pork. "If we can ease the demand for these products our problem is solved," he said. Luckman said there would be no necessity for setting up any new "less" days. It 'had been rumored that the committee was planning "wheatless" days, but Luckman denied it. He stopped here euroute to San Francisco to be present at the departure of the "Friendship Train" for.New York. The,train will stop along the way to pick up food gifts for Europe. . . . ,Wants to Pay 'Debt' He Owes U. S.
