Is there a way to force colums to be narrower than the default in the
Table (basic) table environment? 


The first line of my column is:

Amount spent on store modernization by the chains

The columns underneath are all single numbers, meaning they have huges
spaces to the right:

year  Amount spent on store modernization by the chains
===   =

1933  33,000,000
1934  37,000,000

Do I have to use the more sophisticated TABLE module? (I hope not,
because I have already laid out things with Table!)


\starttable [|c|lp(3cm)|]

This works, but it had the unintended consequence of making a footnote
in the same column the same width. The footnote on the bottom of the
table looks like:

1 There was a recession in 1938 which
  damp ened sp ending on modernizing.
  Though, the 1938 figure was still above
  the spending of 1936.

Thanks
