and German I Expect Cut in Meat Points in November Washington Secretary Anderson said Friday meat rationing will be continued in November although point values may be lower Bis announcement at a news conference followed disclosure that ration pointsfor butter also may be cat next month even though costs may go up Anderson said the decision to continue meat rationing stemmed largely from commitments made to supply meat to foreign countries Rationing he said will make it easier to obtain supplies for over seas shipments Many lower grade meats and some choice cuts already have been eliminated from the ration list Anderson also told reporters he still hopes that food subsidies can be ended by next July 1 The first step direction came with the cancellation of a government subsidy to butter processors with a resulting pros pective increaseof 5 to 6 cents a pound in retail prices effective NovC 8 Wholesalers will be permitted to increase their prices Nov 1 On the other Hand there is a good possibility that the current butter ration value of 12 points a pound may be cut to 8 effec tive Oct 28 One reason said food officials who asked anonymity is the re cent release by the army of 80 000000 pounds of butter At the same time there was an indication that the better cuts of meat will continue to be rationed in November OPA already is printing meat point charts for next
