Immediate food needs in famine areas abroad The allocation WHS 200.000 tons short of UNIIRA Director General Fiorclla H. LaGuaidia's request. It was announced by Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson after a two-hour board meeting. La Guardin conceded that the allotment probably was about nil he could expect In view of the critical world grain shortage. He indicated he was pinning his hopes of beating off mass starvation abroad on UNRRA's allocation for the next four months. Anderson said Hie board should be able to tell by next Monday, when it meets again, exactly how much each hungry nation can cx- l>cct from the world's grain reserve. 1 ;.

Part ot the allocation cannot be delivered until May. Thc increase was made possible' primarily through Ihe board's ac- ceplance of a British offer to di-1 vert 200.000 tons of cereals to more immediate hunger areas UNRRA will get 60.000 tons on this. The entire amount will be made up to Britain later by the United Slates and Canada. UNRHA also will get 10,000 tons of barley as a result of a British deal with an unnamed third country. In addition. Canada previously had agreed to Rive UNRRA . 3,000,000 bushels of oats. Anderson said this was iijuiva- lent in food value to about 27000 tons of wheat. He said Canada also has offered UNRRA an additional 5,000.000 bushels of oats or its equivalent in lower grade, wheat. But this probably will not be delivered until .sometime In May because of transportation problems. v. •Of : Uie remalr,fe'-p? the 200,650- ton' British diversion. 1 60,000 tons will go to India. 60,000 tons to thc British Zone in Germany. 10.000 tons to ,South Africa, nnd 10,000 tons will be used to ncquirc the 10.000 tons of barley for UNRRA. Maurice Htttlon. British board member, said there wns a possibility of nn additional 32,000 tons of cereals could be diverted. He said UNRRA will receive whatever diversions are • possible. UNRRA's immediate grain allocation compares with scheduled deliveries of 353,000 tons to it in April. It received 425,000 tons ot grain in Januarj', 410,000 tons in February and 347,000 tons in March. The board s aid its action resulted from thc realization that "unless shipments are increased | promptly, a breakdown of the ration systems is threatened" hungry nations. It said would mean chaos in food tribution." 1,1 Gunrdia said grain assigned to UNRRA will be distributed "as fairly as physical conditions permit." He saw UNRRA is diverting two food ships lo Italy, two to Poland, and one each to Yugoslavia and Greece because of the critical situation thrrc.
