for this by the fact that they have
been telling customers all last week
that little meat would be available
starting today.
"We have prepared them grad
ually for the shortage by warning
them about what was coming." one
manager of a District grocery
store said.
Customers Turn to Poultry.
Retailers reported slim supplies of
meat on hand and said customers
were now turning to poultry and
other substitutes. This matched the
trend during the meat famine pre
ceding the lapse of price control

Poultry supplies were reported
plentiful by the chairman of the
poultry division of the Merchants
and Manufacturers' Association, but
prices have started to rise and are
now at least 4 cents above old ceil

Fish, likewise uncontrolled, also
were reported in good supply, with
prices at or below old ceilings.
The Morrell plants affected are
located at Ottumwa. Iowa; Sioux
Falls, S. Dak. and Topeka. Kans.
Mr. Thompson said they closed Sat
urday and would not resume full
scale operations. It is planned to
keep a skeleton crew' on hand to
freeze what little livestock the com
pany is able to buy at OPA ceil
ings, he added.
The local Morrell office does no
processing of meat and plans to re
tain its sales force intact, Mr.
Thompson said.
Meanwhile, meats go back under
ceilings tomorrow in the Nations
retail stores. Ceilings on canned
meats, margarine and lard become
effective today.
Ceilings on fresh meats will aver
age three and one-half cents a
pound over June 30 prices but will,
be • considerably below current
prices. Canned meat prices are
rolled back to the old ceilings, but
lard will average five and one-half
cents a pound more. Margarine is
up 1 cent a pound.
On luxury cuts of meat the price
will be as much as 16 cents a pound
higher than June 30 ceilings.
In Chicago the meat packing in
dustry pledged its best efforts to
make the new ceilings work, adding
in a statement:
"The legitimate meat packing in
dustry • * * will buy every meat
animal offered that it can buy within
ithe legal ceiling prices • • * and it
will sell meat derived from these
animals at not more than legal
wholesale ceiling prices.’1—
Reports from Chicago showed a
continued meat shortage at ma.ior

Vast Research Needed
To Make Atom Power
Useful, Groves Says
By the Associated Press
—Ma.i. Gen. Leslie R. Groves, com
mander of the Manhattan Project
which made the atomic bomb, de
clared today much further research
and development is necessary before
"we even know how to begin" to put
man's newest source of energy to
useful work.
Gen. Groves, addressing a lunch
eon attended by delegates to the
60th anual convention of Printing
Industry of America, Inc., said that
scientists at Oak Ridge, Tenn.. were
planning experiments in the gen
eration of electric power from the
energy released by an atomic pile.
‘‘This is still in the planning stage
and only guesses can be made as
to when we will actually start pro
ducing electric power," he said.
The general said the Manhattan
Project has. since the war ended,
directed the operations of a peace
time atomic energy program “with
out the guidance of any established
national policy."
He said Bernard Baruch, as
United States representative to the
United Nations Atomic Energy
Commission, presented a workable,
effective system of International
controls "based on realism rather
than political expediency.”
"No one knows the potential bene
fits of this new force. We have
learned that we can release a tre
mendous amount of energy by
bringing about the fission of atoms
of uranium or plutonium, Gen.
Groves said. As yet. we have not
learned to control thus energy so
that it can be put to useful works."
"There is a good prospect that this
can be done eventually, but much
further research and development
must go before we even know how to
begin," he added.

Welles Calls Greece
Worst Trouble Spot
• y th» Associated Frets
Former Undersecretary of State
Sumner Welles said last night that
a Western power-Soviet Union crisis
“of sinister Import to all the world”
is inevitable and that it may now
be looming in Greece.
In his weekly broadcast, over Sta

trouble spots where the threatened
crisis has been avoided or is still

serious dispute • * * yet arisen" in

He said the United States, which
should have offered Greece all pos
sible aid in rehabilitating herself,
failed to do so. He termed American
policy in Greece “long on profes
sions and short on performance.
"Now the basic questions involved
in the crisis are questions which af

of the United States," Mr. Welles
said. "It is not only a question of
proper recognition for the war ef
forts of a brave ally who greatly
helped the United Nations achieve
their final victory.
"What is even more fundamental
is the question whether the United
States and other members of the

JENA. Russian-occupied Thur
. ingia. Sept. 7 'Delayed'.—The Rus
sians are taking from the great
Zeiss optical work here nearly $3,
i 000.000 worth of finished products
I monthly for reparations, the Ger
i man directors of the plant told
American correspondents here to
They estimated that since the
occupation the Russians had taken
about $24 000.00# worth of products.
The directors, however, categori
cally denied any of these products
were war materials, as had been re
ported in some sections of the for
eign press.
The directors—Dr. Hugo Schrade
and Viktor Sandmann—were inter
viewed in the presence of four con
ducting Russian officers. They gave
an account of the postwar opera
tions of the Zeiss plant which in
November will celebrate its 100th
The directors stated that the
Russians had effected no change in
ownership of the Zeiss plant, which
| they said still reposed in the Zeiss
j Schott foundation established 60
years ago
Questioned about current produc
tion. Dr. Schrade. who is production
manager, stated:
I) "I have read in papers published
. | in the Western countries allegations
. that Zeiss is still making some war
( materials. I am glad of this oppor
tunity to state before American cor
respondents categorically that there
is no war production here. We are
not making range Anders or any
other war materia Is."
He said the only Zeiss machinery
dismantled and removed by the Rus
sians was equipment solely devoted
to war production.
Dr. Schrade said reconversion to
peacetime production had been
rapid and that the plant was now
operating at 1939 capacity, or about
75 per cent of its peak wartime pro
duction reached in 1942, despite ap
proximately 30 per cent bomb
damage. He said about 12.000 .em
ployes were engaged in making such
products as binoculars, microscopes,
medical, astronomical and surveying
He valued current production at
between 7.000.000 and 8.000,000 marks
monthlv. nearly double what it was
i six months ago. <He rated the
mark at its prewar value of 40
Dr. Schrade added that 90 per
cent, of current production goes to
I the Russians, 5 per cent for inter
zonal trade and 5 per cent for Zeiss
1 to sell to the Germans.
Before they left. Dir. Schrade said,
the Americans took about 14,000,000
marks i $5,500,000' worth of equip
ment “on requisition orders" from
Zeiss. He said this included chiefly
1 laboratory equipment, machinery
and devices.
During the war Zeiss produced
range finders and anti-aircraft aim
, ing instruments, Dr. Schrade added,
but always maintained some pro
duction of peacetime products.
