Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn Dr. H. G. Bennett Speaks Blunt Truth on Food Production Last night's speech by Dr. Henry G. Bennett, president of Oklahoma A. & M. college, before the annual ^ breeders' banquejt of thc Third 'District Stock Show association here was a plain and forceful statement of facts concerning the world food situation which too often are overlooked. Dr. Bennett, speaking to a group primarily interested in food production, pointed out that while the natural effect of self-interest is to cause men to worry about the possibility of over-production of beef, the true facts are that world population is growing faster than , the production of food is—and the major problem today is to restore world peace so other nations may barter with us for the food that we have in surplus.

Daggett, Marlanna, Ark., member of the States Rights Democrats' national executive committee. He proposed a plan for the Democratic state convention to bypass naming of presidential electors. On the other score, a spokesman for the States Rightors estimated that approximately 22 of the 75 county delegations to the convention will favor the Thurmond- Wright ticket solidly. Daggett announced a resolution will be introduced at the Democratic convention asking the body to decline naming electors pledged to cither the Truman-Barkley or the States Rights presidential nominees. West Ministers Confer on Berlin Issue Paris, Sept. 21 — (/P) — Americ.-yi French and British .foreign ministers met at the French foreign ministry late today for the second time iii iM hours to plan their next move in the Berlin issue. Their advisers on Germany sat in almost continuous session throughout the day in an effort to iron out differences. They stopped only for lunch. Gen. Lucius D. Clay, commander of the U. S. zone of occupation, and his political adviser, Robert Murphy, represented the United States in the day meetings. Gen. Sir Brian Robertson commander of the British zone, and Sir Wiliam Strang, chief of the foreign office's German section, sat in for Britain. France was represented by her ambassador to London, Rene Masi- gli, and Maurice Couve do Mur- villc, chief of the foreign minsitry's political section. U. S. Secretary of Stale Marshall British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcvin and French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman met immediately after the U. N. assembly adjourned its opening session.

That was a momentous step, to be sure, but only tho first one. The real job lays ahead. And the inevitable hitches that have developed in the £' course of it seem to have attracted little public attention over here.

Ir has been suggested that Europe will have to become less divided before it can divide the dollars. Some time ago ECA Director Hoffman turned over the responsibility of finding an agreement on this matter- lo the European Council . for the Marshall Plan. Its members '<*'• were to recommend allotments for all the participating countries. Their failure to submerge national in- jte'rest and' desires in the interest "of general recovery may be understandable, but it is not encouraging. Part of the blame for this deadlock, however, seems to rest with the United States. Our government has its own disagreement over dollar allotments for the bizonal area of Germany. And apparently no one has yet been given author- Y>i ity to speak tho last word on the ••"' matter. The Stale Department has suggested a sum for Germany. Now the Bizonia authorities want more. General Clay's economic adviser, Lawrence Wilkinson, has challenged thc European Council's right to cut the German allotment. And he . has said that if it did so, Congress might be less generous with further • -Marshall Plan appropriations. This threat reportedly offended 175 years. In our own country the population has risen from 3V> million in 1790 to a probable 145 million in 1950—and a total of perhaps 200 million may be reached within the lifetime of some of the younger people in this banquet room tonight. "World population is growing faster than the world's food supply is. But the world doesn't come empty-handed to America for trade —therefore there will always be a market for what we produce in food—if we can restore world order so trade is possible. "The immediate problem before the world today is twofold: "1. How can we maintain peace and let people do some work? "2. How can we produce food enough to feed the world?"

Once more General Clay gives tho impression of being the author rather than the agent of important American decisions. He probably could not give that impression unless there were some division and confusion present. A report from Europe says that this problem of dollar division may have to be submitted to the high'•„- est authorities in Washington. It '-"• might be suggested that this is approaching thc situation backward. Tho policy should have been set and co-ordinated by thc highest authorities at first.

If this happens, Daggett said, "it will be a clear-cut issue up to the people and will avoid a bitter interparty fight in the ranks of the (Democratic) party in Arkansas."

A representative of Humphrey's office said theie "is little doubt but what sales will break last year's all time record." Ten counties have leque.sti'd additional receipts, with Sebastian county making three additional le- quests and Clay two. Other counties wanting more foims weie Drew, Columbia.
