Summary

###Y ###NG ###ON MILK ###ION. ###cry of Food, February, 1942. so drastic a cut, the replacement of the bacon and eggs would present great difficulty. Refrigerated tonnage imposes a limit on the amount of bacon we can ship and additional egg supplies from overseas would be largely unobtainable.
