Every sign points upward to scientific investigations and laboratory studies that aid not only in the quantity but the quality of food produced. It is becoming increasingly apparent that America must continue to grow? food for some of the European Countries, Although food sent abroad, is considered surplus", and is purchased by our government, this product would have ordinarily found its way into the channels of trade had it not been for a government price guarantee that assured the farmers a set percent of the 1959 price. The world today has a growing awareness that food is basic to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The National Nutrition Conference, held in Washington, D . C in May 1941 focused the attention of the nation on the problem of securing more adequate diets for all our people. Since that time there have been a series of international conferences concerning the problem of making "Freedom from Want" a reality on a world basis.
