Col. H. I. T. Creswell, chief of

SI spokesman for the National Fed

il cated today that a nationwide

H wage increase.
Affiliated unions representing
about half of the NFTU’s approxi
mately 250,000 members have filed
strike notices which would be put
into effect when the 30-day cooling
off period ends Feb. 21.
| The spokesman said, however,
that a conference of union officials
n Memphis Feb. 17 would deter
mine whether a strike actually
would be called. He believed a
pattern had been found for the
settlement of all disputes.

BREAD SHORTAGE
STRIKES BRITAIN
LONDON, Feb. 6.— Ufl —Britain
may be forced to ration bread a
measure avoided even in the dark
est days of the war—unless wheat
consumption is greatly decreas
ed says Food Minister Sir Ben
Smith.
Meanwhile, Sir Ben informed
Britons, their bread will revert to
the dark type they ate during the
war years. He said there was a
“50-50” chance that American
bread also would have to be dark
ened, perhaps as much as Bri
tain’s, because of a world wheat
shortage. !
He took to the ra^dio to urge the
people to “save every scrap of
bread,” and Agriculture Minister
Tom Williams called on all Britons
to spade up their backyards again
and plant gardens to help feed
themselves.
Sir Ben said reduced livestock
feed also would mean lowered Bri
tish supplies of bacon, poultry and
eggs and declared consumption of
fats would be reduced by lopping
an ounce of every persons weekly
ration of lard.
He said that 220,000 ton* of Bar
ley promised t o distillers for
whiskey would be withheld be
cause “food must come before
whiskey,” but that 110,000 tons al
ready delivered would be permit
ted to go into liquor manufacture.
The one bright spot in the food
minister’s forecast was an an
nouncement that rations of jam,
milk, suett and canned foods would
be increased slightly.
He told the House of Commons
yesterday that world wheat sup
plies were more than 5,000,000 tons
short of requirements and that
Britain had absolutely no reserve.
BARGE FLOATED
BUXTON, Feb. 6.—(A>)—Shifting
wind, a rising tide and two tugging
coast guard boats from Chicami
comico and Hatteras stations
floated the Wood Towing com
pany’s barge upon which Schlum
berger and Haliburton equipment
were being brought here and the
barge docked at mid-afternoon af
ter being stranded for 60 hours.
Both heavy pieces of equipment
were brought ashore and the Sch
lumberger test was underway be
fore nightfall.
