Looking Facts In Face When a group of prominent Kentucklane "organized the Committee for Kentucky tliey decided to follow an objective pl»n and squarely face unfavorable conditions. They felt U"U by ot>enly recognleliif Kentucky as a backwoods slate as well as a land of belles, race horses uiul mint Juleps they could accomplish more. Studies made by specialists for the Committee for Kentucky directed allenllo') to conditions regarding health, education, Eetvernl Income and other matters. Undeterred by fear of giving the state bad publicity, the coinmltWii is using those data for arousing general interest In bringing better condition's. Amy Porter, a Kenlucklan who is associate editor of collier's, says In the March 22 issue that when she attended one of the committee meetings -she asked what states were 1 In worse • condition 1 ; than Kentucky. One man replied with n 'slogan that .v/ns suUI to be Often heard. Ill 'the South:' "TTiaiik God for Mississippi— arid ' sometimes Arkansas." Editor Porter, says Kentucky shares the bottom-- of-lhe-class status with Teiihessee^ North Caro- Hnn, Aiknsaas, MtosUslpiil, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and -Louisiana. Arkansas, however, holds one coveted distinction—the lowest death rate of any state. Arkansas has a slightly) higher Illiteracy r«itc thnn Kentucky has, but several other slates have a higher percentage ol Illiterates. For all its progress Arkansas is comparatively a poor state In wealth and income, though It possesses an abundance or natural, resources. Arkansas'* per capita cash farm income in, 1943 was 1295. as compared with' the $632< national average. Kentucky's . was only »269. oash receipts from fnrin marketing ana government payments in Arkansas amounted! to. $342,283,000, In contrast to Kentucky's $451,703,000. Government payments In Kentucky thnt year were $12,118,000; in Arkansas, $14,111,000. in the value of products added by manufacture In 1938 Arkansas was lowest or 11 Southern states, arid Kentucky stood fifth from the bottom. The aggregate value of Arkunsas's mineral production In 1944 was «8.396,000, showing a decline of $12,853,000 from that of the previous year. Kentucky's aggregate mineral production value rose from $236,578,000 hi 19« to $272,952,000 in 1944. Kentucky Is said, to have got itself In b«tter financial shape for making improvements by changing its IHX system. The study of Arkansas taxation sponsored by .the. Arkansas 'Public Ex-' pendlture Council holds possibilities for improving Hie state In more than finances. — ARKANSAS GAZETTE. Japanese is not use to thinking.

BY PETER .E.DSON NEA Wafhui(t»n C WASHINGTON, May 3. INEA) — ow to make over 14 million tons! f bread grains meet requirements >r over 21 million tons In the first x months of 1940 Is the pretty Itle problem now puzzling' an Ltfit known as CPU, the Com- Incd Food Board. How this CFB operates Is a lit- le-known story, though it Is prob- bly the most Important Intcrna- ioiial organization in the world to- ny—not even excepting the United Nations, since bread comes l>efore >eace. Stalled as a war agency in 1942, 3FB was a combined chiefs itaff organization to plan top stra- ,cgy on the supply of food to Ailed armies and civilian populations. The United States . and Britain were the original members, Canada coming in the following year. Today the members of the board are Secretary of Agriculture Clln- ion P. Anderson for the U. S., Maurice-I. Hutton for Britain, and J. G. Gardiner for Canada. With their deputies, executive officers, a secretariat headed by M. M. Benlf't of (he U..S., and 1C Commodity Committees of experts from the Washington embassies of a score or more-nations, they have headquarters In the U. S. Department of Agriculture administration buildlni;. The staff is ^irawn largely from this department. The board meets lormally at least once a- week— .umally on Tuesday afternoon—and Informally at other times, trying [q reach decisions on what cnn be done about the world's food supply problems. C;KB WAS "REPRIEVED" TO MEET POSTWAR CKISIS The Combined 'Food Board did not wish this large Job on itself. The board was to have been abolished last December. But as the food crisis has grown worse, the board hns been continued until the end of 194G, and it may have to be coV Inued another year. The only niter native is for It to (Tun the job over to, nnd be absorbed by, some outfit like the Food and AjSii'.|iUurc Organization of thd United Nations, meeting In Washington late In May. . CFB wr.i forced, to operate In secrecy during the war, because I food Ws ammunition, nnd the ' submarine blockade had to be over- I come. Until recently, this rule of secrecy hns been strictly followed. But since food is so important, and all eyes are now focused on CFB decisions, for the future more and more of Us work show be conducted in the goldfish bowl. The principal reason for all the secrecy is that the Combined Food Board has no authority. It was not created by law, and there is no" law behind it. It his no power to requisition or ration uny coun- | try's food surpluses, nor to »llo- :cute thane supplies to other coun- I tries. CFB Is merely a forum where world foot) problems can be die- :usfc(l. The board can only rec oniinrnd to various countries where hey might send surpluses to do Hit most good hi u fair distribution. UNANIMOUS AGREEMENT / Kb'QUIKKU FOR ACTION Furthermore, the board lakes no action except by unanimous agree- nent of all countries concerned, agreement, no action. This, naturally,/slows up all CFB recommendations. But 1C would be Impossible' for thU board or any other agency to operate on any different basis, as no country can bo expected to surrender sovereignty over 'Its food supplies, The board has even ruled that It Is up to each country to give out, or to withhold, figures on its food situation. The first break In this no-publicity policy came a few days ago, when CFB issued a statement on world supplies and allocations of sugar. The sugar statement is to be followed by statements on ric 1 ^, meat, beans and peas, fats and 'oils, and bread grains, as fast as Only in the central and south- unanimous agreement can be reach- ern I)OTt i 0 | ls of china is rice « e<l on each groin) of commodities. sl(>p j c a ,ticlc of diet.
