Senator Jackson of Washing- :on, another likely Democratic contender, said in a television interview that congress should pursue "a pro- ;ram of bipartisanship with oremicr Panayiotis Canellopou- os, 72.

Members of the council will confer at Camp avid, Md., on Saturday to Eating Less Meat Little Help, Official Says Basic Food Policy Changes Urged WASHIWr-.TriM (Am .1 _____, WASHINGTON (AP) A government farm conference was told Monday lhat lillle arogrcss can be made in solv- ng world hunger unless many countries make basic changes n their own food and trade wlicies. Harry Walters of the Inter- national Bank for Reconslruc- ion and Development, an af- iliatc of the World Bank, also aid he sees little benefit if Americans and other affluent consumers eat less meat so lhat more grain could be used to help needy countries. Some experts have advocated such a plan. Walters' remarks were in a speech prepared for the open- ing session of the National Ag- ricultural Oullook Conference al Ihe agriculture deparlment. The Iheme of the four-day mccling is "U.S. Agriculture in the World Economy." Implies Price Hikes Wallers, who said his views were personal and not those of Ihe World Bank, told the con- ference that policy shifls in Ihe developing countries would be especially difficult since changes would imply in- creases in farm prices. "This would conflicl directly with the desire of many devel- oping country governments to keep food prices low for poor, urban he said. Wallers said lhat when food is scarce and expensive, as il is now, richer people can bid food away from poor people. "This is especially true where so much of the diel of the world's poor depends on cereals. But lhat dependence is on food grains wheat and he said. "Transferring grain lo the poor through for gone meat consumption would he an indirect and inefficient method of helping the hungry." Suggested Steps Walters said necessary changes should be made now. He said the developed coun tries can help facilitate Ihis by making emergency food aid and technical assistance available. The oil-rich countries could i help through financial and fertilizer aid. He said the most important step would be for food-deficient countries themselves lo give "a consis- tent priority" to food produc- tion in their own use of re- sources. "Surely, Ihis would be a more intelligent way lo ex- pand our energies and re- sources in Ihe next decade than lo simply consider how lo transfer vast amounts of Walters said. weigh the proposals made dur- ing the hearings and come up with their own recommen- dations. Consumer Stand Lee White, a spokesman for the Consumer Federation of America, urged the administra- lion to adopt mandatory energy conservation measures, includ- ing oil import limits and stan- dards for improved automobile engine efficiency.
