'« OAZETTO, mcuNA. FEBRUARY 4, DREW PEARSON ON The Washington Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON « An importan thing to remember about the dizz climb In coffee prices is that th profits from the price climb ar not goltig to farmers in Brazil most of whom have been seriously hurt by the frost that ravaged their ' crop 1 and Induced the coffe shortage. I Nor Is the price increase due t w any market manipulation by th Brazilian government, as its Mln Ister of Foreign Relations,,Vicente Rao, made unmistakably clear in a recent letter to the Washington Post. Jfa usual the profits are being soaked up chiefly by distributors roasters, and speculating middle men, who deal in coffee futures Another important thing to remem ft her, before we start pointing an accusing finger at Brazil, is that by far the greater portion of our huge spending for coffee stays right in the United States. A Senate Agriculture Subcommittee, headed by Sen. Guy Gillette of Iowa, heard some impres sive testimony on this subject four years ago that might well apply to the situation today. Andres Uribe, acting chairman of the Pan-Amer- |t ican Coffee Bureau, testified that the United States annually spends more than',$2,000,000,000 In coffee trade. Of this amo.unt, 62 per cent remains hi the United States and is shared by brokers (speculators), importers, roasters, retailers, stevedores, salesmen, etc. The remaining 38 per cent goes to the producing countriejs, including Brazil. d The year before, late in 1949, middlemen speculators had made a killing when coffee prices skyrocketed. Uribe disclosed that Brazilian producers, the great majority of whom are small farmers, didn't benefit from the market upturn, having already disposed of their coffee cr6p»i n July, 1949. "And the farmer get's paid for it then-in July?" inquired Sen George Aifcen of Vermont. ) "Yes, they get paid when they give the coffee to the second handler," replied Uribe.

Uribe replied tha,t practically all Brazilian farmers had sold their coffee by that time and "naturally did not get any of the rise." The same is true today. New "A" Battery Atomic scientists are more excited about the new "atomic battery" than anything that's happened since Hiroshima. In contrast to that first explosion, which made many scientists dread for the future, the new A-battery has given them fresh hope that mankind will eventually reap the untapped bene fits of atomic power. Here is what one scientist said "With this discovery it now seems certain we'll be able to de velop atom-powered automobile and airplanes. It's probably much cheaper and more efficient. This 1 what we've been looking for Don't be surprised if it takes us— iterally and figuratively—to the moon. "The discovery is really too phy sically small to talk about but-the dea behind It is almost too big to hink about. This is one of the few developments that will identify our entury to future historians and ven school children. Hundreds >o: -ears from now children will learn bout the development of peacefu tomic power in 1954. "This is absolutely certain—un- ess, through an atomic war, there re no children." RCA, developer of the new di ect-conversion system, kept its progress highly secret and only a handful of the nation's scientists knew about it. .Most were as startled as the public when RCA chairman David Sarnoff made the announcement that electricity could be produced directly from radioactive material without using any moving parts. Until this announcement, scientists have produced atom-powered electricity only through a complex system involving an atomic pile, steam, turbines, and dynamos. Though still in its infancy, this 1 revolutionary [discovery is regarded as one of the, greatest milestones in scientific history. Ike Laughs When the President is really amused, he is apt to rear back, slap his knee, and let go with a guffaw. Such a knee-slapper was told him recently by Harold Russell, star of the movie "The Best Years Of Our Lives," now an official of the World Veterans Federation. , Back in 1947, when "Best Years" opened in Washington, there was a big reception, Russell said, at which he and other stars were supposed to shake hands. Russell had to forego this, having lost both arms in World' War II, but he had an interesting chat with a "very ALADDIN'S LAMP * -J o i •*" o ITU •3 3 12 2 8 11 7 • W U R E G 0 0 lor 6 4 10 1 6 B N _S' N 1 12 1 12 9 K Y "ITT 5 8 W R 7 0 6 C fi M L 0 *f ft T T~9 6 5 , S T * D M F 10 5 7 11 2~~4 IV tt E A "IF 0 4 12 4 2 £ 0 C 0 V 11 0 5 EOS 7-10 2 8 R T T 0 a e 8 7 11 4 9 ""12 1 2 M44JuLJJjLjL!J I S-i 2 VTl 5 n % 2 TTTTirrr-irr-is A G A C M A E E C B C OUT j 15 i .? iTTTl 5 2 11 9 6 12~7 .BJBJ^A U_V A 0 s a ?7 £HF,r?^~ r "^^ 2 ~9~o-7—S SS LLT YVLN-ST L S S V SB 1^ 8 3 5 10 » 4 12 6 8 * * 0 M N A 1 E A Apr.' 21 to May 20—11 May 21 (o Jim. 21-~ 6 Jun. 22 to Jul. 23-, 4 J3 to Dec. 22— 3 Dec. 23 to Jan. 21— 8 .. — __„ „_ —.Jan. 22 to Feb. 20—10 Oct 24 to Nov. 22— 5|Feb. 21 to Mar. 20-1 attractive lady" about the Jread- justmerit problems of returning vets. "Somehow or other, we weren't introduced," Russell told Eisenhower, "but she was the kind of person that you like to talk with or wlthoua formal introduction. I had a vague recollection of having seen her picture in the papers and ^ater she became famous, but right then—wel, you know how things are in Washington, Mr. President, are in as.ington, Mr. President. "We got to talking about the war vets, like myself, who came back with arms or legs missing. 1 remarked that there was one guy who wouldn't forget the men in the ranks, of all services, after the aands. stopped playing. The lady asked me to name him and I said, General Eisenhower. 'I went on to say that I knew of no military leader who had won the respect and affection of so many of our boys. To which the lady replied: 'You know, I feel the same way about him. I'm Mrs. Eisen- lower.' " After the President stopped laugh- ng, he observed: "No military commander should eceive praise for showing an understanding of men under him. That's part of his job."
