The report held out little hope for elimi nation of rationing until the war with Japan has been won. Supplies available to this coun try and to the other united na tions will be lower, the report said, because of prospects for a smaller crop in Cuba, reduced stocks in both producing and consuming areas, and the necessity of divert ing considerable amounts of raw sugar into alcohol for synthetic rubber. Defeat of Japan would relieve shortages in two ways. It would make Philippine and Javan sup plies available again, and it would also give the United Nations excess to far eastern supplies of raw rubber.

BIG SUPPLIES OF LEAN BEEF SEEN Word from the American Meat Institute to meat dealers and con sumers here is that the prospects are for unprecedented supplies of cattle producing lean beef this fall. As a result, the entire livestock and meat industry is making plans to assist the homemaker and other user of meat in the proper prep aration of beef of these grades, according to the Institute. The outlook ror increased sup plies was discussed at a two - day meeting in Chicago recently, called by the American National Live Stock association, representing cat tlemen of the United States. Par ticipating in the sessions were var ious other livestock organizations, the American Meat Institute, the National Live Stock and Meat Board, National Association of Re tail Meat Dealers, the National As sociation of Food Chains, the Na tional Association of Retail Gro cers, the Super Market Institute, the Office of Price Administration and the War Food Administration. A consumer program will be necessary, according to F. E. Mol lin, secretary of the American Na tional, in view of the movement on foot to reduce the record num ber of grass-fed range cattle now on ranches and farms. oovernment estimates indicate there were 82,000,000 head of cat tle in the country on January 1, 1944. The War Food administra tion has said in view of the avail able and prospective feed supplies the number should be reduced to the 1943 level of 79,999,999 head by January, 1945. To achieve the government’s ob jective would mean that there would be a record marketing of grass-fed range cattle during the ensuing months. The consensus of the meeting was that there will be a relatively abundant supply of beef for the consumer in the form of pot roasts, ground beef, stews, short ribs and other similar cuts, all of which are high in nutritive value and palatability. In answer to the question as to how large a volume of the lower grades of beef there will be avail able this fall, representatives of cattle interests present stated that it was pracically imposible to quoe definite figure because of many variable factors involved. But it seemed to be the general opinion that these grades would be in abundance during the next few months with, supplies well above normal marketings. The meeting developed the opin ion that there should be little dif ficulty so far as consumer accept ance of these grades of beef is concerned if they can be made available point-free and housewives and others are informed of the best methods of preparation. -V Coast Line Derailment Blamed On Broken Rail WASHINGTON, Sept. 2.— UP) —A broken rail caused derailment of an Atlantic Coast Line passenger train at Stockton, Ga., Aug. 4 in which 47 off-duty railroad em ployes were killed and 41 injured, the Interstate Commerce Commis sion said today. A commission accident said the 14-car train, 32 minutes late, was moving at about 65 miles an hour, five miles an hour below the speed limit, when the ninth car left the tracks, dragging the next five after it. The tenth car, the report said, crashed into the locomoitve of a freight train moving in the op posite direction. It was in this car that all fatalities and most of the injuries occurred, the re port said. -V MUST COLLABORATE WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 — UPi Cuba must continue to collaborate in hemispheric defense after the war, and after reassuming control over defense bases granted to the United States should extend the use of these bases against any aggressor menacing this hemis phere. president-elect Ramon Grau San Martin nf 0,1,, aaiH tnHav. Liberated Paris Feels Bitter Battle For France Nearly Over BY GLADWIN HILL PARIS, Sept. 2.— W1 —Reviving Paris, although still partly paralyz ed by war, hailed in irony the anniversary of the German inva sion of Poland and received re ports of the latest Allied battle gains with the feeling that the bat. tie of France is nearly over. The capital, although vibrant with liberation activity, still has only a shell of its peacetime gran deur. It is still under crisis con ditions in three big essentials: food, heating and transportation. There still is no hot water in the city. The crux of the problem is coal, which comes principally from war-ridden northeastern France and on which the city de pends for electricity and gas. Emergency supplies of food con tinued to pour in through the fa cilities of the Allied armies, and there are no reports of anyone starving, but the shortage has caused many problems. Most restaurants are still closed except for a few black market places charging $10 to $15 for a meal. Some angry rumors are circu lated that, the bulk of the emer gency food supplies are being grabbed on arrival by members of the French Forces of the Inte rior, the most powerful group at the moment, to the detriment of a large portion of the population which is not in the FFI. There are also reports, undoubt edly true to some extent, that in the confusion of straightening out the ration system after liberation, some individuals managed to get four or five cards. To ease the shortage, A.l 1 i e d military personnel are forbidden to eat in public restaurants. Thev are being served in messes im provised in a number of luxurious hotels where, incongruously, French waiters are serving up mundane spam, corned beef and the dehydrated products of the ' Army’s C-rations repertoire. Most “spots”, like the Cafe de La Paix, with sidewalk cafes are flourishing, serving a limited list of drinks—beer,‘'white wine, cham pagne and French aperitifs, and the sidwalk tables are dotted with the khaki of everybody from pri vates to generals. -V BUY WAR BONDS AND STAMPS J-—-\ THIS STORE WILL BE CLOSED ALL DAY MONDAY LABOR DAY k____1/ Come In Tuesday and See These Fine Dresses :<■ carefree classic... , > by KAY OUNHILL Broad of shoulder, trfm of waist, needle-slim of Hne.
