Advocate (Newspaper) - August 19, 1964, Victoria, Texas 119th 104 THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE TELEPHONE HI 5-14SI Import Cut On Meats Past House Senate Okay Due Quickly WASHINGTON (AP) The House passed Tuesday and sent to the Senate, for expected quick approval there, a compro- mise bill to keep imports of beef, veal and million 15 per cent below last year's record level. Before the 232-M9 House vote, members of both parlies pro- tested that the bill would boost prices of hamburger and other cheap meals. But backers of Die measure argued it would help restore slumping prices al Ihe beef producer level without causing unreasonable prices to consumers. Cheaper Class The meals coming from Aus- tralia, New Zealand, Ireland and Mexico in increasing amounts until Iliis year were midnly of Ihe cheaper class. These countries voluntarily cut back Iheir sales lo America and began sending more meat to Europe. Because (he imports TIVC run- ning 25 per cent under last year's level, U.S. officials say Ihey expecl there never will be any need lo impose quolas. Nror, they say, will there be need to cancel the voluntary agree-' mcnls holding down meat im- ports. Prefer No Quotas The bill as passed originally by the Senate bad been strongly opposed by (he stale and agri- cuilure departments as too re- strictive. But Stale Department officials said Tuesday Ihey can live with Die compromise meas- ure although (hey would prefer no mandatory quotas. The compromise version, ini contrast lo the original Senate measure, would not immediate- ly impose quotas. II would re- slricl imports of beef, veal and not in if the secrefary of ag- riculture determined imports' were rising above specified lev-' fl." measured by a complicated formula. j Kxclmlc Canned Kxcludcd are canned and! cured beef from Argentina and Uruguay.
