MONDAY, MAY 20, 10<ir, Russia Softens On Food Issue Moscow Radio Tells / Of "Brotherly Aid" P Given to Neighbors. BY K. V. KOBKRTS United Press Staff Correspond?nt LONDON. May 20. (UP»—Hiissla professed n willingness today to hell! deal with the world 'food Crisis Insofar us the war-improver- ishcd resources of the Soviet Union permits. A Moscow broadcast cited the Russian assistance given Finland, Poland, Romania and Pi-nnce as proof of "the wUllngr/jss with which the Soviet people respond to the needs of other nations." The radio statement regarding "brotherly assistance" to I he newly nations was viewed as an indirect answer to American and nrilish suggestions that the Soviets contribute more to the global fight against famine. ft came soon niter Washington reported that Premier Stalin in effect rejected an appeal by President Truman for Russian 'help in the food crisis, saying that the American cn:»e too late. Informed sources here .said the British cabinet had directed representations to Stalin, asking him lo make food available for hnii|>cr- stricken countries. Prime Minister Clement Altlcc may follow Mr. Truman's lead in addressing a persona! plea to Stalin, informants reported. The Moscow broadcast on the i food situation was in the form of an English-language commentary by Peter Orlov. "The nations to which the Soviet Union has rendered brotherly assistance do not forget that the USSR suffered inestimable n power and material losses in war," Orlov said. >]3,000 Eligible As Non-Fathers Due Draft CalVs ULYT1IHVILLE (AUK.)

Up-to-date methods of construction are at hand lo help speed our 14-million-dollar program of extending rural telephone service in the Southwest to all who want it. Plans made during the war are now taking shape in the form of more lines along roads and highways and more new telephones in more farm homes. By the end of 1946 we expect to have installed 40,000 new rural telephones. The over-all program calls for 165,000 in five years in the five states we serve. SOUTHWESTERN BELI. TELEPHONE CO.
