s.oon will ask for bread in the same
awed, hopeful tones that they seek
butler and bacon.
This was the conse;n,;us today of
large bakeries.
TIhey attributed ai !;i(llen, short
bread spl to an ex; haustion of
normal reserves, and use of the last
odd lots of flour on the market.
The' sup~ply will be even more sharp-
ly decrezu-ed with the opening of
thousands, of lower Michigan resorts
servedi by Detroit bakeries.
"Even nlow there are bread lines
waiting for our stores to open,"
said a large chain store grocery
sy,-ktsm~an. "In 10 or 15 minutes
every loaf is krone."
Smaller merchants reported great-
ly reduced supplies, some receiving
only five loaves of breada day from
each large bakery.
Meantime, Detroiters also were
contending with a severe meat short-
Lawrence L. Farrell, Michigan
OPA director', said the meat shortage
can be traced to the consumers them-
selves who ar'e demanding mor'e meat
than was available to them in 1939.
Hie said that the meat industry
exlzexsts to make available 22,000,-
00h0 pounds of meat to the Detroit
consumers this year, 30 pce' cent
more than was conosunmed in 1939.
In that year' the demand was 100 to
140 pounds a person, he said. The
pr'esent demand is 175 to 180 pounds
a person.

Vogel- Urges
Retail Grocers'
Election Probe
(rxaiid Jury Asked To
Investigyate Sharnie
By TIhe Associated Press
DETROIT, May 21 - Frank A.
Vogel, suspended president of the
Detroit Retail Grocers' Association,
today askgd for grand jury investiga -
tion of the election of a new slate
of officers scheduled for tomorrow
Vogel described as "desperate" the
determination of Louis B. Shamie,
association executive secretary and
editor of the Grocers Spotlight, to
retain control of the grocers organ-
"Unauthorized Call" Outlawed
The executive board of the Detroit
Retail Grocers Association outlawed
what it termed "an authorized call"
for the election at a meeting Monday
night and suspended Vogel for mak-
ing the call.
"This move by Shamie is an exhibi-
tion of the con trol he intends to use
to close a deal for the entire mem-
bership with the teamsters," Vogel
said. "The men he calls members of
the board of directors are all men
he has hand-picked during the war
years when the membership was
down to approximately 100."
Vogel issued a call for an election
last Friday when he made public
char'ges that Shamie had conspired
to lead the membership of the as-
sociation into a teamster contract.
The AFL union seeks to organize
independent grocers and meat deal-
ers in Detroit.
Slhamie Denies Charges
Shamie has denied Vogel's charges.
Alex Bell, president of' the Meat
Merchants' Association, said that the
majority of merchants are solid in
their opposition to James Hoff a,
teamster boss, and thc teamsters'
joint council.
Meantime, the Wayne County
Board of Auditors recommended
$100,000 for a grand jury probe of
the Teamsters Union despite protests
from another Federation of Labor
