The keynote of faith in ultimate achievement of world freedom from want was sounded in a message from President Roosevelt read to the conference's formal opening session last night vigorously affirming that the world owes every man his daily bread. "Society must meet in full," the president said, "its obligation to make available to all its members at least the minimum adequate nutrition." The opening address was made by Judge Marvin Jones, head of the United Stales Delegation who was elected, permanent chairman by the 45 assembled delegations. Jones appealed for global economic and political collaboration to make the next 100 years "t^he people's century." "What humanity wants," he said, "is not charity, but a free opportunity the chance to work and help to build." Jones climaxed his address with a picture of the world free from want toward which the nations must strive, a belter day when "rotting surpluses are translaled into food for hungry mouths," when the farmer "can plough his fields wilhoul fear" and "the hand of the good neighbor rather than the mailed fist has been extended across the world." The note of cautious realism was sounded in the address of Chairman P.

Missouri On Rampage Kansas Cily, May 19 (/I 3 )— Col. Malcolm Ellioll of the Army engineers loday forecast "a major flood in the lower Missouri basin," and Ihe Army joined coasl guardsmen in the evacuation of families from the path of the rising torrent. Lifeboats brought from Lake Michigan by special highway trail- flood were the Wabssh, While and Mississcncwa rivers but hundreds of other streams overflowed and plagued wide sections. The Coasl Guard and Army have evacuated hundreds of families in St. Charles, Mo., when: observers estimate the Mi.ss-.iun river stage will reach :i(i.3 fern before Saturday the highest sinc-j 1003 and sufficient to inundate 90,000 acres. Some Army engineers expected the crest to exceed Ihe 1841 record of 40.1 feel. Nears Record Height Again Muskogee, Okla., May 19 —(/P)— Warnings thai the worst floods of Oklahoma's history were imprend- ing sounded through the valleys of the Arkansas and Verdigris rivers today as their already-raging currents drove hundreds from their homes. The weather bureau said a crest of 42 to 42 feet, more than four feet higher than last week's record-breaker, was due here shortly. Municipal authorities told rcsi- dcnls to fill all reccplacles with water before the water works were engulfed. TOWNSHIP VOTES DRY Fort Smith, May 19 —(/P)— Big Creek township voled 118-0 ycslcr- day to prohibit the sale of any alcoholic beverage. The township includes the town of Lavaca. Big Creek is Ihe second town ship in Sebastian county to go dry recently Mount Sandels township having voted out beer, wine and liquor last month. Arkansas River Is Reported on Rampage Little Rock, May 19GT 1 )—A new flood threat to the lower Arkansas river valley developed today as the effecls of last week's record break ing rises were felt along the east ern seaboard. The river was again over flooc stage at Muskogce, Okla., and the Weather Bureau said a rise of from five to seven feet was imminent there. U. S. engineers watched apprehensively, pointing lo huge lakes of backwater and sodden levees as obstacles to any new flood fight. The east felt the impact of the flood when it snapped the "big inch" pipeline near here. This cut the flow of oil from Texas to Illinois to relieve the eastern fuel shortage. A New York petroleum industry source, who declined to be quoted by name, said the break probably would result in a cut of at least a million barrels for the cast "due to Ihe fact thai it will take from ten days lo Iwo weeks to repair Ihc damage." This source said Ihe loss was equivalent to approximately one day's rationed supply of all petroleum products for the eastern seaboard. lelegates. It stressed the magnitude of the jroblcms confronting the conference and suggested three tangible •esults which could reasonably be expected from its deliberation: 1—An exchange of views and in- 'ormation between the various delegations regarding actual conditions in their respective countries, to promote better understanding and help each nation to formulate its national policies. 2—An agreement on "some general principles of postwar policy regarding food and agriculture based on human needs/ to be submitted as constructive recommendations for the consideration of participating governments." 3—Tentative plans for setting up machinery to contniue and carry forward the work of the food conference.

Beth gathered herseli up slowly into as compact a mass as possible, and stayed as close to the sandy soil as she could. The footsteps came nearer. They were not so rapid now. Beth could see a human figure in the moonlight. It was that of a man in uniform—the cut of the clothing was unmistakable. He seemed to be hesitant, and acted almost as though he were afraid of being observed. He slopped on the beach between Beth and the seaplane and watched the ilying boat for a moment. Beth heard him whistle. His back was to her. She knew now that he was not only a member of the armed forces, but that he was a commissioned officer, for the moonlight was reflected by his collar ornaments. He whistled again. There was activity of some sort—Beth could not detect what—on the seaplane. Then he called softly but clearly. "Lita," he whispered—and now B.ettv felt a sickening sensation paralyze Brit." her soul—"Lila, it's "Just a minute, Brit," Lita called back. * * * "|~N less than a minute a small boat was launched. In it were a man and a woman, the man plying the oars expertty. "What do you want?" Lita Danton asked. "I want to talk with you . , . alone," Brit Jackson said. He entered the boat and the three returned to the seaplane. For an instant a light went on, and then it was blacked out by the drawing of a blind. "I'm spying on my commanding officer," she told herself. "I have no right to do that." She watched the seaplane with fixed gaze as it rocked gently on the tide. She wondered what was being said behind that drawn curtain. She found herself wondering what the interior of the seaplane was like. Then her mind reverted to the lost directive. Had Brit known where it was all along? Did it ever even exist? Was Beth being framed? No, no, no, her heart shouted at her reason. Everything would be all right! She must have faith. Then she was calm again. Was Brit laying a trap? Of course his purpose was honest. But whom did he suspect? Suppose that the directive really was lost during the daylinie. Did Brit still believe she was at fault? She remembered how he had made such a point of changing the safe combination, yet letting her know the new one. Did he suspect her, and was he laying a trap for her? After all, she reflected, he knew nothing about her before th,ey bad met in General Tallicoe's headquarters. She was just another WAAC to him, and he admittedly uiew nothing of WAACs at all. A young woman playing at being a soldier, Brit had said. * * * T>ETH looked back down the beach. There was nothing of iiuman shape or form to be seen, nor was there any human edifice. The camouflage was more complete by night than by day. No light showed, no sound was audible—though this last was because of the distance, and not because of any prohibition against making ordinary sounds. The white top of the surf, the clean sand, the curve of the beach —these were part of this Shangri- La! It was more beautiful than she had dreamed. Beth's position was cramped, so she shifted slightly. She heard some native noise—she guessed it was a nightbird's call—back in the island's jungle, which began just behind her and increased in thickness the farther it receded from the beach. A half hour elapsed. The light appeared again for a second on the seaplane—a door was opened briefly, then closed. Three persons entered the boat and it moved slowly toward the beach. When it reached the beach, Beth saw that the trio was the same that had gone out—Lita, Rick, and Brit. The two men were almost the same height, but Rick was easily distinguishable because he was wearing whites. Brit got out first. "Thanks for the taxi," he said. Then he walked up the beach a few yards, looked around, and turned back. "Come on. Everything's clear." Lita stepped from the boat, and then Rick. Rick dropped a weight which was attached by a rope to the bow of the boat. "I think your plan is an excellent one," Lita said, her voice full of confidence.
