Butter Price
Supports Cut
Eight Cents

Move Designed
To Reduce Costs
WASHINGTON - (1) - The
government yesterday announced
a slash of about eight cents a
pound in the federal price sup-
ports for butter, which it expects
will be passed on to the housewife
some time after April 1.
The action brought cries of pro-
test from some dairy producers
and some congressmen from pre-
dominantly milk producing states.
They called the Agriculture De-
partment's move premature and
discriminatory and estimated it
would cost dairy farmers as much
as one billion dollars a year.
