Experts Forecast Deficit
Of 150 Million Pounds in
Domestic Fats and Oils
Survey Shows' Increase In Imports Cut Reveal
ReducetlReserves In 1947 Will Cut Down
Total Available Supply
A survey conducted by the Amerl
I Can Fat Salvage Committee shows
; the I'nlted States will have avail
' able for Industrial uses even less
; fats snd oils during the first half
of 1947 than was availame dur
ing the corresponding period last
year. Department of Agriculture
experts predict the drop In supplies
will amount to approximately 150
f In view of the findings of the
survey, American housewives are
being urged to redouble their sal
vaging efforts to Increase the col-
(lections of used kitchen f.its. The
American kitchen is the only pos
sible source from which this deficit
can be alleviated.
According to the Department of
Agriculture, domestic production
of fata and oils animal slaughter
plus vegetable crops will be slight
Ijr lower the first half of this year
than that of a year ago. This loss
is estimated at about 157 million
The one optimistic note Is that
while the I'nited States EXPORTED
216 million pounds of fats and oils
during the first halt of 1946, It Is
estimated that we will IMPORT
150 million pounds during that
period this year or a gain of 366
However, this gain will be more
than offset by the tact that this
year It will be Impossible to bor
row from reserve stocks 355 million
pounds, as was done a year ago,
since reserves are now depleted.
This leaves a domestic deficit of
about 150 million pounds.
In all probability, this even great
er shortage of fats and oils will
greatly reduce the manufacture of,
refrigerators, automobiles, electric
al appliances, tires and paints.
However, If every family in the
United States will save and turn
over to meat dealers one pound of
used fat each month, our domestic
supply will equal that of a year
ago. In this way and In this way,
only can this problem be met

Somebody de-fined nnr town just
the other day as "A plare where
the people talk ahout you hehind
your back, and come to wait on
you when you're sick."
I've got to admit there's some
thing to it A lot of our folks are
inclined to be pretty outspoken
and quick to criticize . . . even
about little things, like a woman's
hat, or a man's preference for a
plass of beer, or the color of Cy
Hartrnan'i new barn.
But when anyone's in trouble,
those differences and points of
criticism are forgotten . . and
folks become neighborly and help
ful, like they really are.
From where I sit, criticism
never did much harm to anybody,
so long as folks don't let it guida
their actions .. . so long as they
respect our individual prefer
ences, whether they apply to hat
or beer. That's the way it is in our
town, anyway, and 1 hope that it'a
the same in yours.
