Green Washington Chairman Charles Luckman of the citizens food committee planned to pledge the nation's bakery industry today to wheat savings of bushels a month for hungry Europe. Meanwhile he called the 25 com- mittee members together to report the closing of two other deals which he considers of major importance in the drive to conserve bushels of grain this winter. They were: 1. A CO-day shutdown by whisky distillers utartlng at midnight October 25, agreed to by virtually tho entire industry. 2. A pledge of "complete sup- port" from the restaurant in- dustry's national advisory com- mittee, including cooperation in the spottlly observed meatless Tuesday and cgglcss trylcss Thursdays. The industry added a 17-polnt savings plan of its own, Both agreements were reached Monday night, on tho eve of the country's second "meatless Tues- day."

Repeal Performance But the fact remains that the two hnd kind words to sny about ench other in a recent appearance on the snme platform In Dos Molnes. They will have n chance to repeat this act when they speak at a Repub- lican Women's club convention Thursday in Columbus, Ohio. Taft and Stassen bnckers appear anxious to remain on good terms with each other for two very good asons: 1. Ench camp frankly thinks the other's principal has no chance to win the presidential nomination nnd hopes to gather in the major share of his delegates when he falls by the wayside. 2. Ench group concedes privately it needs the other's help to halt the expected drive Of Governor Thomas Dewey of New York to obtain the nomination again. 'Not Interested" Stassen hns said he would not bo interested in running with Dewey. Taft has kept publicly silent about own state, although that any such the New Yorker, but he has told associates that he appreciated Stas- sen's action In Indorsing the Taft- Hartley labor bill just before Con- gress enacted It over President Tru- man's veto. The Ohio senator has noted to friends that Dewey said nothing at the time. The unspoken Taft-Stasscn ac- cord which thus has grown up may result In some careful maneuvering to keep out of each other's way politically until the chips are down at the Philadelphia convention. May Avoid Primaries Taft. for instance, may elect not to enter any preferential primaries outside his backers say slon will hinge more on whether he feels he can get away from Con- gress long enough to campaign than on nny consideration for Stassen. On the other hand. Stassen. whose campaign calls for taking a chance in practically every other primary, may stay discreetly out of Ohio. Tnft's future course is 'expected to be determined to some extent at strntcgy conferences he has booked with ills associates In Ohio this week. Stassen. already formally launch- ed with the announcement of his candidacy, will get n second start with a November 24 rally in Mil- waukee. Aides explained that this will open his active campaigning, ending what they called the "build- up" phase. i Second Hurt As Train Wrecks Car Vehicle Thrown 138 Feet by Impact of Passenger Train DresbMh, Minn. One man killed and one seriously Injured the car in which they were riding was lilt by a, passenger train nt a crossing at a, m. today. Killed was Robert Hanson, 34, Onalaska, and Injured was Ralph, Brown, 31, La Crossc, who sustain- ed head wounds, and possible In- ternal injuries. The men were taken to La Crossc hospital by ambulance. Hanson died en route to the hospital According to information obtained by Sheriff George Fort, the men, were apparently coming from settlement or cottages on north side of the railroad tracks. Near Heart of Village The automobile was struct on a crossing near a Milwaukee section house just north of highway 61 in the heart or the village. Sheriff Port said that he hai been unable to determine where the men had been at that hour of the day, or what they had been doing In the area north or the tracks. Fort added that he bad learned the men had stopped for sornethhig to cat at an all-night cale nt Dakota nt about 2 a. m- The car, a 1337, tudor Chevrolet, was demolished. Force of the Im- pact threw the car 138 feet from the crossing, ripped the engine free from the auto and threw it 150 lect farther, and scattered wreckage over a wide area. Sheriff Port said that nil he has been able to learn of the accident is that the two men had been visit- ing friends at a cottage north of the tracks. Although badly Injur- ed, Brown was conscious part of the time and told authorities that the cor had stalled as he was crossing tho tracks. Before they-were- ablo to get out of the auto. Brown said the south- bound train Jilt the right side of the auto. Car Demolished The car, a 1937 two-door Chevro- let, was demolished. Force of impact threw tile car 138 feet from the crossing and down a steep em- bankment. The engine was ripped free from the auto and thrown 290 feet, bouncing eight times before coming to a stop. Wreckage was scattered over a wide area, and scats in the car were ripped loose. Broken parts of car were found as far as a block and a half away from the car. A Ore and part of a door were torn off the car and smashed, through a wooden stair down the side of the embankment. There was hardly a usable part left on the car. Dr. Robert Tweedy, Wlnona coun- ty coroner, said Hanson died of multiple fractures and shock. La Crosse police made an Investigation at the scene and then notified Sheriff Fort. 15 Per Cent Food Consumption Cut Urged by Stassen E. Stas- scn called today for a 15 per cent cut in American food consumption and an "immediate" special session of Congress to deal with economic problems. The former Minnesota governor, on announced candidate for the Re- publican presidential nomination, told a news conference he believes tile average American family can "decrease consumption of vital foods 15 per cent. Improve their health and bring down food prices." As for a special session of Con- gress. Stassen said he believes It is "Imperative." added that "we have been dallying in the face of disaster." Forego Session Stassen's urging that the legisla- tors be called to meet came as re- ports circulated that President Tru- man was inclining to the view that It would be preferable to forego a special session but seek a pledge from congressional leaders or early action in January on European aid. Senate Republicans said an offer by Mr. Truman to pass up a special session would be welcome, but some balked at any commitment for early action in the regular session open- ing In January. Committees to Meet Stassen, In response to a Question, said that President Truman must assume the responsibility for not having called a session earlier. Asked if he believes a reduction In food consumption might endan- ger the health of Americans as sug- posted by Governor Thomas E. Dewey of New York, Stassen re- plied: "Of course not."
