He also asked feeding of grain to livestock. Addressing the first meeting of his citizens' food committee at the White House, Mr. Truman exhorted.: "We must get prices down and help hungry people to other coun- tries at the same time." Mr. Truman said the savins cd of each individual is "actually very small." "One bushel of grain saved by every American in the next few months will do the he said.

In Ills remarks to the food com- mittee, Mr. Truman described the United States as "a granary of hope" as well as a granary of bread.
