UNITED STATES
THREATENED BY
MEAT FAMINE
Drouth in Middle West Hastens
Crisis Meats From Other Cattle
Countries Barred Because of In-
. fected Diseases by Government.
WAHHINOTON. Aug. 15. That
tho I'nlted .States not only faces a
famine of domestic ment but that tho
stringent rules against Importation
limy bar tho m6at and cattle of
other countries necessary to fill tho
rjeod, Is tho declaration hero today
of Dr. 1). A. Ramsey, chief of Inspec-
t on of the United States bureau of
animal Industry, who declared the
situation Is critical.
"Tho drouth in tho west and
soiitlrAest, I Jr. Ramsey said, has
hastened a crisis which has boon
npproacblng for years. At tho same
time, ho asserts, contagious diseases
In livestock havo developed In Ar
gentina, tho Indies, Australia and
New Zealand, tho only sources of
supply.
Dr. Ramsay said:
"Tho department of agriculture
has Inspcctprs In theso countries
studying conditions In order to for
mulate cntranco inspections regula
tions for dressed meat and livestock.
Much talk Is heard that frco meat
will rcllovo tho stringency. I do
jtot foresco that result. Dressed
beef now carries a ten point duty.
and oven If meat woro free. It must
rncot tho department's inspection
rules. Argentina, tho greatest
sourco of supply, docs not fulfill tho
department's regulations now.
"The' drouth In tho middle west
Is most sorlotis. It means that tho
Mexican grass fed cattlo of tho south
west, which heretofore havo been
driven tpttbo 'rolddlo western "fatten,
Ing corrals, will now havo no harcn.
Tho vlslblo supply of beef In tho
drouth stricken section Is being sold
In tho' open market now. Lntor tho
result will bo that prices will soar."
Dr. Ramsay estimated that tho
corn crop will not be moro than CO
per cent of normal, and officials gen
erally sco no remedy for tho coming
meat famine, as tho nunibor of
shcop, hogs and cattlo in tho coun
try already Is greatly decreased.
