Thus, Mrs. James Hickey, 32- year-old nKthcr of a typical Ho- choslcr relief family, voices approval of the government's food stamp plan, after three full experimental months here. "Our 8-year-cld. daughter, Mary Ellen, has been anemic in the years my husband lias been sick and out of work," says tliis wire of an un- emplcyed canal-worker, "since May, when we began getting better iood through the orange and blue stamps, her checks have been rosier and she feels a lot better' PLAN STRETCHES 514 ALLOWANCE One of 10,000 Rochester welfare and WPA families benefited by the Department cf Agriculture's plan for lessening trie farmers' burde of surplus crops, the Hickeys no sit down to much better meals. Before May 16, the family sjicn $12 n month of their welfare chcc fov fcod, relied on Federal 3urplu Commoddilies Corpralion handout of flour, potatoes, and other staple tor the rest. Now they buy $12 worth o orange stamps, go:d tor any foo products, and gel six dollars' wort! of 'blue stamps free—one for ever two orange stamps purchased. The blue stamps go over the counters in exchange for listed surplus commodities: butter, eggs, tomatoes, peas, rice, cabbage, ccrn meal, prunes, onions, dried beans, flour, peaches, pears. "You can't beat those fresh fruit and vegetables for making a kic grow up healthy," comments tlv 84-year-cld head of the family. Once a pnfessional wrestler anc lake boat fireman, the father servcc as pump man on canal barges' anc on WPA before a bad heart endcc nils working days.

Diiring Ilieir early days on relief the mother had to carry handouts of staple products Jtram the FSCC warehouse on Stillson Street, more than a mile away. Grocers didn't like tlie unfair competition, welfare clients resented the stigma of handouts. So the government set out to satisfy h;tl. of (hem—and the surplus-loaded fanners as well—with its food stamp program. Rcchester's 1200 grocers have done an average of $164 worth cf additional business since the blue stamps started changing hands. And more and more welfare families are buying the stamps in every two-week period. ~ ——— ,. ra^fl Success Nearer for Salvagers of Stfualiis v ^Hl^B f .-S?;?SSS!S-a;a«K'S!;«!j!«;;ij-;!xw.~,,.„,..„„,._,._. _ * Mary Ellen Hickey. her health Improves stamps bring her more and better food.

"Our country has coped with this Ifik. The Soviet shipyards have built powerful submarine units of various types, in a f ew yca rs we learned to build modern submarines and TO have csnstriicled n number sufficient to protect our borders In nny naval war theater." Tcvosyan observed that (I wns natural that Iho Soviet could not remain indifferent Uj the feverish naval armaments race pursued by other countries in recent years. "In the process cf building an efficient submarine fleet, surface warships and Ice-breakers," he snld, "the Soviet shipbuilding industry lias accumulated great experience. It thus wns in position to tackle n mail Imptrlanl task of the third Five-Year Plnn-llio construction of sen- and ocean-going ships for Hie Soviet navy." Tcvosyan pointed out that one of the most characteristic features of a modem navy Is Its Improved system of control both of the slccr- ng gear and especially of armament. Soviet shipyards, he said, have mastered the production and itislalla- tion of all fire control apparatus, ."Great attention," Tevosynn snld, 'Is devoted to the accommodation of the crews and the creation of normal conditions for their work and life.
