Meat Americans Eat Even though the OPA created near meat famine, it wasn't as serious as it would have been ago, when our meat-eating forefathers were on the scene. In 1809, the per-capita consumption of meat was 151 pounds; in 1008, it was 1G3 pounds. More persons lived on farms in those days. People did harder and longer manual work. There weren't the conveniently canned foods, and the dietary values of oranges, tomato juice and spinach hadn't been ballyhooed. In 1932, at the depths of the depression, meat consumption per capita was the same ns in 1031; IVa per cent higher than in 1030, and only one quarter of one per cent lower than the prosperity year of 1929. In 1940, thc consumption of meat per capita in America was 141 pounds.-Slightly more than half of this pork and pork products; not quite 40 per cent was beef; about five per cent was veal, another five per cent was lamb and mutton. In ft normal year, Americans consume one pound of chicken or other poultry to every 6% pounds of meat, one pound of fish (including canned) to every 13 pounds of meat. Yet we are far from being the greatest meat- eaters of the world. In prewar years, according to figures of the Food and Agriculture Organization of UN., five great meat producing countries Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Australia, nnd New consumed from 35 to NAC. was created by Congress! with hardly a ripple of public no-1 Letters to tlae Times -Editor t Renders nre Invited to contribute their views on current topics.

Mr. Russell, Miss Tollin, Miss Krell and Mr. Ahl- stroni gave us. in some respect-s, the brst report we have ever had. The stories in many cases had a great deal of human interest in them, ind yet a great deal of information for public rending. It is of real value to us in public school work to have some of our problems presented to the public in this manner, and we do appreciate corner with Mr. Shurin and the other juests and find ourselves at Mr. Durocher's door. Mr. Durocher is up at Bear Mountain with his ball club, the Brooklyn Bums, engaged in spring training. Mr. Raft has the icy. however, given to him by Du- rocher a few days before when Leo Lore himself away from the training camp to dine with Raft in town. And why not? They were very old and very close friends.

He had there the singular honor of meeting Bugsy Siegal, who ranks among the aris- tocracy in the registers of both the FBI and the Bureau of Narcotics of the Treasury. Mr. Raft said in a recent broad- cast, "here today and gone tomor- row, but the rarest thing you can find any place is a and Bugsy Siegal is his friend and vice versa- Mr. Raft testified in court in 1944 in defense of Siegal, charged with bookmaking, "I have known Mr. Siegal for 20 years. We have been friends for a long time." A policeman said that when the raid was made on the apartment on Sunset boule- vard, where Raft and Siegal were found with several other sports- men, Raft admitted that Siegal had j placed bets for him that very day. But that may just go to show how ill- rained some policemen are. For, when he took the stand for the de- fense, Raft swore that he and Siegal were just sitting there, "discussing things" and playing cards and that, of course. Mr. Siegal took no bets, knowing this to be contrary to law. Raft was on the stand for more than an hour and his secretary, or bodyguard, Mack. (Kilier) Gray, rior Krug was absent from the city, the subject of coal would be taken up at another time. Meanwhile, government lawyers are at odds over the interpretation of the contract John. L. Lewis signed with the interior department last spring. Attorneys for the labor and justice departments are pri- vately critical of interior depart- ment lawyers. They say the coal contract is loosely worded and full of loopholes. However, Assistant Secretary of the Interior Warner Gardner, who helped draw up the contract, claims that under its terms Lewis has no right whatsoever to call a strike. He says privately that Lewis is merely looking for a chance to cause em- barrassment on the eve of elections. The contract provides for discussion between Lewis and the government of technical matters only, not wages and hours'. The technical matters Lewis has thrown into the government's face are, first, that the coal is weighed at the tipple after it Is washed, not in coal cars before Wash- ing at the tipple means that the ash and rock is sorted out so the coal weighs four per cent less. This, Lewis claims, reduces the miners' welfare fund of five cents per ton. In a scant five months, however, the welfare fund has already reached and the United Pat Hurley's Language Down in New Mexico, a battle of the languages is going on between Patrick J. Hurley, Hoover's ex-Sec- retary of War, and Senator Dennis Chevea in their race for the U. S. Senate. To appeal to New Mexican voters it is almost essential to speak Span- ish. New Mexican courts, for in- stance, are bilingual, with both Spanish and English official. Senator Chavez, of course, la equally at home with either lan- guage. Hurley is not Howeyj Chavez -has pulled a new the ex-Oklahoman. __ "You want somebody in Washing-' ton who speaks your Chave? tells his audiences. "But I want you to know that I also speak P. it's." Whereupon, Chavez proceeds to recite the Lord's Prayer and the Ava Maria in Gaelic. Pat Hurley, of course, while mak- ing quite a play of being Irish in Catholic New Mexico, speaks not one word of Gaelic. one time, Pat did not make such a great show of being Irish. His father was born O'Hurley, and kept that name all through life. His son found that being Irish was no political asset in. Oklahoma, and dropped the "O." Averill Harriman's Baby He would like very much to for- get it. but Averill Harriman, well- meaning new Secretary of Com- merce, has found a troublesome problem, child on his doorstep. Though head of Union Pacific Railroad and director of the Ill- inois Central, Harriman, as Secre- tary of Commerce, now has to help pass on the ticklish question, of rais- ing railroad rates. The problem child was found on Harnman.'s door-step when he first took office, there was The man who put Acting Secretary Mine Workers are so wealthy that they have purchased one of the largest office buildings in Washing- ton, in addition to buying the swank; University Club a.s oak-paneled headquarters for John L. Lewis. Grievance No. 2 against the gov- ernment is failure to give miners allowance for vacation pay when they leave the job before the end of the year. Here, however, Krug has already accepted an award in Illi- nois in favor of the miners. Thus, only one issue, washing coal at the tipple, remains to be settled. For thus, John L. Lewis threatens to close down the entire coal In- dustry. fact is that Lewis al- ways wanted to negotiate a con- tract in November, on the eve of cola weather, rather than in the spring, on the eve of warm weather. Obviously his negotiating powers are much greater when people face shivering homes. Also, he is not averse to stirring up a little indus- trial uncertainty just before elec- tions. Schindler, who had to give the terstate Commerce Commission Commerce Department's view railroad rates. High railroad officials, conferring with Schindler In a secret meeting, told him they had been promised rate increase by the White House. Accordingly, they asked a 25 per sent raise. Commerce Department transpor- jl tation experts, on the other hand, r advised Schindler that: The rails will handle fewer ton- miles in 1947 than in 1942, and fewer passenger-miles. Despite this, they will employ 000 more people. Schindler's net reaction: If any- one came to me with a proposal that they hire more people to handle less business, I'd fire them right away. Whereupon he signed a statement putting the Commerce Department on record against the 25 per cent increase. This was the Commerce Depart- ment's official position when Rail- road Magnate Harriman took, over his new job, and so far he not officially changed it. Traveling Secretary to that.

H it so m tified for Siegal. He didn't say whom he had ever killed to acquire his dread name and. much as I should like to substantiate a legend. I can find no record of any homicide to his credit- Anyone knowing any such will confer a favor on Killer Gray. A man's reputation is at stake here, t can't find that he killed any Ger- mans or Japs, a great, temptation to a good, practicing killer. I can't find that he even slapped anybody's face. Another friend in Mr. Raft's life Is Owney Madden, a New York kil- ler who served a term in Sing Sing and was returned for violating his parole by association with the ring- side elite at Madison Square Gar- den when he and these elites were managing Primo Camera.

But finaliv 48 they let him out again. Raft and Madden were pals back in prohibi- tion days in New York, when Mad- den had a brewery, and, a few years ago. the district attorney of Los Angeles had Rait in to ask him if Madden had been concealed in his house in the Canyon when the dis- trict ttorney would have asked him some questions. Mr. Raft said he certainly didn't hide Madden. If a friend was a guest and he didn't know the friend was wanted, how could anyone say he hid him? Ridic- ulous on the face of it. The greatest distance around the earth is at the equator, and is 902 statute miles, firmness. This is not the ,ough" quality that some of more aggressive critics would .0 see him manifest. The Byrnes critics are from two extremes reactionaries who con- sider him an appeaser, left-wingers who say he is not co-operating with, Soviet "Russia for peace. Actually, there have been no great changes from the foreign policy objectives laid down by Cordell Hull. There are no new policies that can be definitely ticketed as by James F. Byrnes. Byrnes has not run a one-man State Department nor a one-man foreign policy. He has delegated au- thority in great chunks. Undersecretaries Dean Acheson and Will Clayton command respect in any company, and either would make a good Secretary of State.

American affairs, John Hilldring, in the Republicans are trying to make something of it, though foreign policy is supposed to be a non-parti- an. "bi-partisan affair. No peace treaties have been signed, nothing has been settled except the loan to Britain. Trouble is piling up on nearly every corner of 'the globe. Any fair appraisal of Jimmy Byrnes, however, must in- clude a list of good starts. The war having thrown the whole world into confusion for over five years, it would be impossible for even a Republican to bring order .out of the chaos in a little over a year. The outstanding Byrnes character- istic is extreme patience. His abil- ity as a compromiser comes second charge of military lave positions of trust and the authority to deal with their respon- sibilities. I Byrnes' two greatest problems are S relations with Russia and the atomic bomb. He has concentrated on these, particularly the former, leaving his assistants to run the de- partment in his enforced absences. Even the shaping of policy on atomic bomb control was delegated to commission headed by UndersecrJ tary Dean Acheson. The United States shipped 711 net tons of iron and steel to foreign users during 1945.
