Ball, "it we are to control effectively the threat of a third wot\d v»ar^ f ought with atomic. Looking Facts In Face When a group of prominent Kehlucklanjj 'organized the Committee for Kentucky they decided to follow an objective plan und squarely face unfavorable conditions, They felt that by oi>enly recognlrltig Kentucky as a backwoods slate as well us u land of belles, race horses and mint juleiis they could accomplish mor*. Studies made by specialists for the Committee for Kentucky directed attention to conditions regarding health, education, eenernl Income and other matters. Undeterred by fear of giving the state bad publicity, the committee Is using those data for arousing general interest In bringing better conditions. Amy Porter, a Kentucklan 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 slntus were 'In worse 'condition than Kentucky. One man replied with K slogan that v.'fts snlil to be often .heard | In the South:; '"mink Ood for Mississippi—and sometimes Arkansas." Editor Porter, says Kentucky shares the bottom^ of-lhe-clnss status with Tennessee, North Caro- lirm, Aiknssas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Ijoultlana. Arknnsas, however, holds one coveted dls- tlnclion—the lowest death rate of any state, Arkansas has a slightly; higher Illiteracy rat* trmn Kentucky has, but several other states hove a higher percentage of Illiterates. For all Us progress Arkansas Is comparatively a poor slate in wealth and Income, though it poetesses an abundance of natural, resources. Arkansas's per capita cash farm income In, 1943 was *295, as compared with- the $632' national average. Kentucky's. wns only |268. cash receipts from form marketing ana government payments In Arkansas amounted! to $342,283,000, In contrast to Kentucky's $451,703,000. Government payments In Kentucky that year were $12,118,000; In Arkansas, $14,111,000. In the value of products added by manufacture in 1B3S Arkansas was lowest of 11 Southern states, arid Kentucky stood fifth from the bottom. Tlie aggregate value of Arkansas's mineral production in 1944 was $68.396,000. showing a decline of $12,853.000 from (hat of the previous year. Kentucky's aggregate mineral production value rose Irom $238,578,000 111 1943 to i272.952.000 In 1944.

How this CKB operates Is a lil- le-known story, tliough H is piob- bly the most Important lntcriin- ional organization in tlic world lo- ay—not even excepting the united Nations, .since bread comes before pence. Stalled us a war agency In 1942, CFIi was a combined chiefs ol itaff organization to plan top stra- ,eey on the supply of food to Alicd armies and civilian populations. The United Slates . and Britain were the original members, Canada coining in the following year. Today Ihe 1 members of the board are Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson for the U. S., Mauice I. Ilutton for Britain, and J. O.• cm-diner for Canada. With their deputies, executive officers, u secretarial headed by M. M. BcnWt of the U..S.. and 18 Commodity Committees of experts from the Washington embassies of n score oi 1 more-nations, they have headquarters In the U. S. Department ol Agriculture administration uuililln!!. The staff is |drawn largely from his department. The hoard meets drmally nt least once a week— usually on Tuesday afternoon—and lifoimally at other times, trying reach decisions on what can be done nbout Hie world's food supply problems. CKB WAS "REPRIEVED" TO MEET POSTWAR CRISIS The Combined 'Food Board did not wisli this large job on itself. rlie board was to have been abolished Inst December. Bui us the (oo<| crisis has grown worse, the board has been continued until the end of 194C, and It may have to be coV limed another year. The only alternative is for it to (Tu-n the job over to. and be absorbed by, some outfit like the Food and AgiTt|i1tiire Organization of the" United Nations, meeting In Washington late in Miiy. CFB \viv. forced* to operate in secrecy during the war. because food was ammunition, and the submarine blockade had to be over come. Until recently, this rule "f secrecy has been strictly followed But slime food is so important, am 4 all eyes are now focused on CFE decisions, for the future more and more of its work show be conduct:1 in the goldfish bowl. Tlic principal reason for nil tni secrecy is that the Combined Food Board has no authority. It was not created by law, and there is no' law behind it. H has no power to requisition or ration tiny co\m- tion. UNANIMOUS AGREEMENT / KKQUIKKD FOR ACTION Furthermore, the board takes action except by unanimous agreement of all countries concerned. No agreement, no action. This, naturally, /slows up all CFB recom- mendatioru. But It would be im- powlble' for this board or any other agency to operate on any different basis, as no country can be expected to surrender sovereignly over 'Its food supplies. The boarci has even ruled that It is up lo each country to give out, or to withhold, figures on Its food situation. The first break in this no-publicity policy came a few clays ago when CFB Issued a statement on world supplies and allocations ot sugar. The sugar statement Is to be followed by statements on rice, meat, bean.? and peas, fats and oils, and bread grains, as fast as , • . , Only In the central iind.soulh- unanimous agreement can be reach- c|)l j^-ticns o f Chiim is rice « ed on Mich group of commodities. sta ,,i c a rti c i c O f diel.
