S. to Surpass '46 Export Quotas A history-mak- ing United States winter wheat crop of bushels is in the making to brighten hopes of the hungry abroad. Materialization of this crop, which was forecast by the Agriculture de- partment yesterday, and an indi- cated spring wheat crop of 000 bushels would give this country a total production of bushels the largest of record. It would enable this country to match if not surpass the bushels it is sending abroad from last year's crop of bush- els.

Taft said he felt he would be "justified" in moving to table the bill, which would have the effect of ktl'.ing it. Tills brought a stormy protest by Democrats.
