The Zanesville Signal (Newspaper) - April 16, 1946, Zanesville, Ohio THE ZANESVILLE SIGNAL Associated Press NEA >1P 82ND 297 ZANESVILLE, 0., TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 16, 1946 FIVE CENTS Prints the News Tells the Truth War Controls Marshall to Seek N KJ P Slapped Onto New China Truce UM r Off A ion on Red Scarce Foods More Butter Seen As Effort Is Made To Untangle Snarl WASHINGTON The government mapped a new attack on the snarled food situation today involving butter, bread, meat and black markets.

Baking in- dustry spokesmen told the mittee yesterday that, if these sup- plies fall 25 percent below last vear. government bread rationing 'or black markets in food are; probable. The move for butter production, uas bracketed with OPA action: 10 keep consumers bills at their! present levels for milk, butter.1 rhecse and other dairy products. A program of larger subsidies for dairy farmers was announced yes- terday to compensate for higher feed and labor costs. i On butter, the OPA j at overcoming situation which had made it more prof- itahle use butterfat for ice cream and other products than j fnr butter. Accordingly, the j wartime ban was restored on i the of whipping creain and restrictions were placed on the amount of butterfat in ice cream. The program also includes price ceilings for the first time on cream used in bakery products and ice- cream. Leonard E. Hurtz of; Omaha, chairman of the Dairy! Industry committee, contended in, statement that the new pro- gram would lead to a decline in! in ilk production "and continued shnnago-" of dairy products. The Senate Agriculture commit- tee was plainly exercised about the meal situation which Packer James D. Cooney testified was a "national scandal which makes prohibition look iike petty crime." With the FBI ordered into ac- tion against one group of black marketeers, there were hopes of curbing some illegal transactions in meat, hut opinions differed sharply whether the reim.position of slaughtering control? would flchievr it? aim of improving the general meat situation.

Adjutant General Donald F. Pancoast disclosed today that it had become necessary "to scratch Zanesville from the list" of cities being considered for an Ohio National Guard air unit. This city's airport facilities had been considered excellent for the unit, which was to include 25 P-47 fighter planes and a half-dozen sen-ice craft. However, lack of hangar space became an insur- mountable obstacle after General Pan- coast applied in vain to the army for one of the prefabricated type for use here However, there was still a chance for Zanesville, inasmuch as the state has not yet found a sufficient number of fields which meet the U. S. army's require- ments for hangar and repair shop space. In the event that it becomes neces- sary for the government to construct buildings, it is believed that the local air- port will receive serious consideration. A survey undertaken by The Signal disclosed that there are more than 50 qualified pilots in Zanesville and immedi- ately surrounding territory, and almost all of them have expressed interest in ONG air force service. 8 Delegates Opposing Soviet Move Gromyko Charges U.
