FitzGerald Tells of Benefits Under Marshall Plan Former Nora Springs Elevator Man Dies at Hospital in Illinois Nora Springs—Charles Dinsmore, 65, manager of the Farmers Elevator in Nora Springs until 1941, died Saturday at Carle Memorial hospital at Champaign, 111.

A. Fitzgerald, food director of the Marshall plan, at a meeting of the Rotarians and their farmer friends Tuesday evening. More than 200 were present. "Before the Marshall plan was started, production was only 85 per cent of pre war," he declared. Cost Comes High "The Marshall plan, with the consent 'of congress, will cost the taxpayers of the- United States $15,000,000,000 by June 30, 1952, when it is scheduled to end. This is roughly twice' as much as we were spending monthly fighting the war. .To date about $6,000,000,000 has been spent. "The basis of the plan is economic soundness. In every election in the past 18 months in the plan countries, the communist vote has declined., However, it is'not on its feet yet. "In pre war times most of the income of Western Europeans came from invisible sources such as shipping, income property owned abroad and tourists. Now this income is nothing. The Marshall plan is paying for the things they need. They do not have the money to pay for it themselves. "In 2 or 3-years the invisible income should rise 10 to 15 per cent. The only way they can pay their own way is to export goods." Other points scored by Doctor Fitzgerald were: Economic stability would accompany political stability. Western Europe is now receiving 2,800 calories of food a day, which is about 80 per cent of that Americans eat daily. However their diet had 60 per cent bread and potatoes, compared with only 25 per cent of our diet having those foods. Work Week Lone Contrary to the general opinion of Americans, those in the Marshall plan area work from 45 to 52 hours a week. For those in Western Europe to support themselves they must "raid" the American market for a 4. billion dollar yearly market. With $250,000,000 annual income, this represents only 1£ per cent of the American market and the rank and file Americans need not feel it is a calamity. Those who export will gain. Agriculture has everything to gain and nothing to lose. The Marshall plan wants Western Europe to set up a United NEW HAMPTON GUEST—Doctor D. A. FitzGerald (2nd from right), food director of the Marshall plan, arrives at the municipal airport at New Hampton from Chicago to address Rotarians and farmer friends in the area. Rotarians were present from Waterloo, Decorah, Charles City, Waverly, Independence and Hampton. Left to right are: James O. Babcock, New Hampton, 2nd district federal census director; Thomas R. Beal, president of the New Hampton Rotary club;'Doctor FitzGerald and J. F. Kennedy, president of the First National bank at New Hampton. States of Europe, but that will be a slow process, especially when one considers that 23 years was required to set up the United States. Getting Western Germany to join with Western Europe is going to be very difficult, but it is something that must be done. Also the currency there must be converted, so it is interchangeable with neighboring countries. Our tarrif 'structure must be reasonable enough to allow Western Europe to trade with us.
