Possibility of the Wildcats taking lo the air against Ihc heavier Hammons men seem remote, since the local passing atlack has failed to click successfully in the two games played to dale. The Berry Bomber defeated Haynesville via a hard running ground attack and probably will use the same tactics against the Hempstead counlains. Despite the presence of Blackwell, the best passer in Wildcal history, El Dorado has been unable to develop any dependable receivers other than End Oscar Smith. The Wildcats probably will enter the Hope fray al full .strength. Billy Hudson, a youngster who has been out with a knee and jaw injury, probably will be back in Ihe starting lineup at his guard posl. Otherwise, the team is in good condition. P. A.

GAYNOIl MADDOX NEA Service Stuff Writer WASHINGTON—The housewife who s trying to appraise Ihe possible ef- cct of world events today on Ihe irice of foods she musl buy lo keep he family well fed shoul dremember his very important fact: In 1-914, when the world war broke out in Europe, the world food supplies then tvailablc were jusl aboul enough to feed people under normal conditions But today, at the beginning of the war in Europe, Ihc world food sup- ilies are all in surplus. When Ihis r broke out, there was a tendency 'o consumers to think in terms of 1917, when the United Stales entered the war, rather than in terms of 1914. But we are not at war. Sugar Source Increased Another favorable difference in the present wold supplies as compaed with 1914. is that South Africa, Australia, the Fiji Islands, Java and British Guiana are now producing sugar. Furthermore our own sugar supplies from Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Cuba, and the mainland, now on hand, exceed by 349,000 tons last year supply, which was considered excessive With such surpluses, we cannot face a scarcity. As lo prices, Ihe powers of Ihc President to life sugar quota restrictions will have much : to do with keeping them within reasonabl bounds. Another important factor in the fooc picture today as compared \to th< 1914 set-up is the great change iji nat ional diet. Since 1014, the improvement in machinery, both industrial anc domestic, has cut down the amount o muscle work required by individuals As a result, we do not need as mucl Sugar and starch, (sweetening in foods, candies and cereals, potatoc etc.) as we did then. Add this lessen cd need for these products to oui ncreascd supplies of them and yoi lave another reason to feel rcassurcc ibout the food situation. Consumer Begins to Learn The i/uddcnly increased intercs n the consumer movement is import ant, too. The Consumer's Counsel Di vision of the Department of Agricul .ure, informs me that every day tlv department in Washington receive nany leltes from women, from club and often from small manufacturer all ovc the county, asking fo ad vice or reporting local profiteerin or gouging. It looks as though consucrs, them selves, are going to have somcthin to say about the inveitable rise in food prices which must come with war conditions. But tl\c rice is going to be contrllcd by active and informed consumer groups this time. For years we have been a nation of consumers. But perhaps we arc now to become alsa a consumer nalion. Such is the hope of most serious students of the increasing problem of maintaining the welfare of every citizen in the United States. Up Bill Monday; Committee 0. K. Sponsors Would Put Arms .Sale On "Cash and " Carry Basis" ATTACK ^SOVIET SHIP Several German Submarines Driven to Their ; Home Ports WASHINGTON — (/P)— The «jnate foreign relations committee approved Thursday the adiirinistration's neutrality bill to permit the sale of American armaments to beligerent nations.
