And though greater meat sup-
plies appear to be in the offing,
military needs may reduce the civil-
ian supply below' the leved avail-
able this year, already squeezed by
a population increase of some 19

tion, the Federal Reserve bank of
Chicago said, "The retail value of
meat consumed per per.son is closely
related to disposable income per
ixtrson. During periods of full em-
ployment and shortages of other
consumer goods, more
usual proportion of disposable m- M^j.Zs JoC ^
come is spent for meat. I Sile W n,ld MrS‘
