Defense Logistic Agency.

* U.S. Reps. Marion Berry, VicSnyder and Mike Ross, all D-Ark., have called on the Defense Logistic Agency to stand by its agreement to buy Army berets from Bancroft Cap Co. of Cabot. Canceling the contract for berets -- including 1.3 million black ones for $8 million, to be supplied in time for the Army's 226th anniversary on June 14--would amount to "putting [Bancroft] out of business overnight," said a letter the three congressmen sent to Lt. Gen. Henry T. Glisson, DLA director. The Defense Contract Management Agency is investigating the use of foreign-produced materials provided by the U.S.-based suppliers that Bancroft uses in making berets. Bancroft, founded in 1901 in Worcester, Mass., built its Cabot plant in 1967 and employs more than 100 workers there.
