Europe's Famine, American Plenty Can Be Reversed To Teach Hard Lesson Bj- WILLIAM R. MATHEWS "Behold there came seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Kgypt: "And there shall arise after them seven years of famine." Genesis 41:29-30. If we glance at past history it is easy to see that from time to time devastating droughts and blighting freezes destroy growing food crops. The story of Joseph and the Pharaoh's dream of the seven lean years and the seven fat .ones, has been repeated countless times during subsequent history. Unless we Americans are God's chosen' people, destined to live In luxurious security all the days of our lives, gorging ourselves on our aSimHanri. of food, our country is Ithe power authority and reclama . , . . tion bureau would take place at bound someume to suffer a devas-l & member of thautnor. tating arougni or a ougrmiis i Uy sai(j today he sees no reason Rapprochement Ready for APA, Reclamation Bureau Arizona's Power Use Issues May Be Stabilized By Discussion, Possible Contract at Month's End, Following Phoenix Convention By LESTER X. INSKEEP Star Staff Correspondent PHOENIX, Oct. 4. Further efforts toward execution of a contract between the Arizona Power Authority and the U. S. Reclamation Bureau for distribution of Colorado river power throughout Arizona made during or imme diately after the National Reclamation Association conven tion starting here October y. A tentative agreement has been reached between the state and fed' eral agencies, but with the under standing that additional conferences will be necessary before the details of a formal contract can be agreed upon. Belief that progress can be made in the negotiations was enhanced by the fact that both J. A. Krug, interior department secretary, and Michael Straus, head of the recla mation bureau, are scheduled to attend the convention. . Resume Talks Locally While it previously was stated that the next conference between Football Results freeze when we shall face an acute shortage of food. View Reversed When we face a shortage of food as a result of such disasters, we will in all probability have to im port our needs from foreign coun tries. When we mane tnose pur-chapes, food prices will rise in those countries from which we buy. When prices go up in those countries, their people are going to howl about "shipping our food to foreigners." Thus will we see ourselves as others see us today. The acute food shortage in Europe is due primarily to the serious freeze of last winter. France, which can usually feed herself, lost two-thirds of her wheat crop. Italy lost one-third of hers. Other countries, such as Belgium, Germany, Poland and the Danube basin, suffered also. I can testify as to how serious this freeze was in France. The French wheat crop was a sick looking affair when I went out into the Marne valley In July. Where in the battles of 1918 we had advanced through fields of waist-high wheat, only thin, barely knee-high grain grew this year. The damage last winter was caused by the worst freeze in 50 years. France's Big Job . As a result of this disaster, France has to find 100,000,000 bushels of wheat to provide the backbone of the French worker's diet, bread. We have a surplus, not as large as usual, but sufficient to take care of the French needs. The big Job France has is to dig up $300,000,000 (100,000,000 bushels at $3 per bushel to land In France) to pay for this wheat. This unforeseen contingency Is one of the principal causes of the present dollar and food crisis. France has to find $300,000,000! whk-h she does not have, $300,000,- why the talks cannot be resumed here with . the secretary himsejf present, Under-the tentative agreement, the reclamation bureau will make available to the power authority excess capacity of the bureau s lines for transportation of power to be distributed by the authority Until recently, the bureau refused to permit use of its lines by the authority The bureau, it was explained, took the position that the author ity was acting in the capacity of a jobber while, the authority contended that it is a state agency charged with distribution of power at cost, plus enough to pay expenses only. For this rea son, the authority insisted it was entitled to prior rights. Way Now Open It also had been contended by the bureau that delivery of power authority power over the federal lines constituted a financial en cumbrance, whereas the authority said this would be only a service contract. The bureau now has re ceded from both stands and opened the way for cooperation.

(.TV- Representatives of the brewing in dustry today agreed to recommend to the nation's brewers an immediate stop to the. use of wheat or table grade rice In beer, in futher ance of President Truman's aid to-Europe program. . The representatives, of the United States Brewer's Foundation and the Small Brewer's Committee, also agreed to recommend the release for food use of all stocks of wheat owned by the brewers or under contract to buy. The latter stocks are estimated bv the brewers spokesmen at over 200,000 bushels. White House Announces The action was announced at the " White House. It was taken at the trequest of Charles Luckman, chair-iman of Truman's Citizens Food Committee, and Secretary of Agriculture Anderson, after a secret, six -hour conference today. Anderson estimated that the industry uses upwards of 10,000,000 bushels of wheat annually. The dozen Brewers' representa tives present unanimously pledged their respective companies "to the conservation program," the White House announcement said. Both, associations arranged to call meetings of their boards of di rectors next week to study "further conservation measures. Effect in Doubt As to the effect on quality and flavor of beer, the brewers were sparing of comment. One told a reporter. "Some companies use wheat in their beer, and some don't" Another said: "It's a matter of individual preference and taste." A third; "The brewers will continue to try to give the best flavor pos sibje because it's a highly com petitive industry." Luckman, in the official state-; ment, said that while the wheat stock held by brewers or con tracted for by them are "comparatively small." today's decision will be "a contribution to the conservation program." He called it a constructive step also to eliminate the use of grades of rice which, are suitable for tabic us. , for operation of the hydro-electric generators. Sacondary power is that which will be .available when the water is above the normal level. The secondary power, it was .explained, will be used largely for "peaking" purposes, or to supplement, when available, a demand in excess of normal. While a bitter battle Is In prospect between California and Ari zona for the Davis power, no commitments have as yet been made by! the reclammation bureau, and Ari zona intends to press for considera tion of her prior rights as estab lished by the first application. BUS FIRED ON SHREVEPORT. La.. Oct. 4. (JP) Two days of peace for the strike- plagued Southern -Bus company. Inc., ended tonight when. Sheriff Kay . Adcock reported, two pistol shots were fired into a bus loaded with 12 passengers. "None was in jured. The sheriff said the bus was bound from Shreveport to Alexandria and that the shooting took place in Red Kiver parish. A bus was fired upon near this same town about six weeks ago. ARIZONA WHIPS MONTANA U., 40-7 Cats Show Weil-Balanced Offense; 14,300 Fans See Scoring Spree By ABE CHANIN The pre-game experts had solidly tabbed it as a high-scoring game, but they sadly neglected to point out,, that the .scoring might be heavily on one side. And on one side it was as Arizona displayed a surprisingly well-balanced offense last night to crush the Montana Grizzlies, 40-7. A near- capacity crowd, estimated at 14,300 sat jacket-less through a performance of fancy running and passing bv a whole gang of Wildcats. ' From the first string through the fourth Arizona was heads, shoulders and hips above the Grizzlies. A procession of Cat backs from Pollard to Crouch ran all over the visitors for . Arizona vic tory No. 2. Cholly Hall Rambles One back in particular, Chargin' Cholly Hall, galloped '73 yards on a run that will go down in Wildcat gridiron history. Hall broke into the clear going through the left side of the line and sidestepped Montana defensive players like a ballerina. He received great down- field blocking by Shanty Hogan and Junior Crum. Early in the first period a 53- yard- pass moved the Grizzlies down to the Arizona one-yard line, but a great Wildcat line held for downs and that was the only real threat Montana produced besides the score. ' In fact, the Wildcat first team line and reserve forward walls completely outcharged bulky Mon tana linemen all night. Total Offense How badly Arizona rolled over the northerners is pictorially shown in the Wildcats' total offense gain of . 554 yards, which should put UA among the national leaders. The Cats gained 343 yards on tlie ground and 211 through the air.. Arizona's aerial attack was sensational. A total of 16 passes were PLAN TO SOLVE BALKAN DISPUTE MERESTS U. S. Johnson to Study French Idea to Omit Names of Border Aggressors LAKE SUCCESS, Oct. 4. (JP) The United States rested its - case in the controversial Balkans question today by telling the United Nations it would "explore" a French proposal of conciliation in the hotly-debated Balkan problem. Herschel V. Johnson, U. S. delegate, made the closing American statement on this case before the 57-nation general assembly political committee. The French compromise seeks to refrain from placing blame on Yugoslavia, Albania and Bulgaria. U. S. Commission The American government has accused the three Soviet satellite nations of threatening the political integrity of Greece and has recommended that a special Balkan commission be established to settle the problem. Johnson told the committee that the U. S. is Interested in the pro- posal made yesterday by Premier Paul-Henri Spaak, of Belgium, who asked Yugoslavia, Albania and Bulgaria whether they would accept such a commission provided that the U.N. would render no verdict against them. Johnson suggested that the com mittee ask the three Balkan nations to express their opinion on the French proposal. Break in Deadlock It was the first indication in the long-debated case that the U. S. was interested In the French conciliatory proposal. The committee adjourned at 1:21 p.m. (EST) until 3 p.m. Mon day, when Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishmsky is expected to close Russia's case. Dr. Herbert V. Evatt, Australian deputy prime minister and foreign minister, is listed as Monday's second speaker. Ten other nations are to be heard from before the com mittee starts "detaile'd work on opposing U.S. and Russian proposals on the Balkans. ' A trend toward adopting a conciliatory attitude in the Greek case rather than to place blame on any given party also was embodied In statements made today by delegates from Egypt and Colombia. : ' China Backs U.

JP) Dr. Oscar Lange, of Poland, told the United Nations assembly's political committee today that Britain and the United States were responsible for "the original sin" of the Balkans problem foreign intervention. He declared that it was Britain and the U. S. who had interfered in Greece, not Albania, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria. He cited alleged participation by British troops in the 1944 civil war in Greece and recent U. S. recommendations on the size of the Greek army to support his intervention charges. Lange said that to charge Greece's n o r t h er n neighbors with interfering In Greece was an "anti-climax" after the activity of Britain and the U. S.

J.) of the house foreign affairs committee said today he welcomes continuance of what he called Russia's "straight-arm offensive" against the United States. He said these tactics "strip off" the Soviet "mask." ' In a statement condemning the Soviets refusal to allow two congressional groups to enter Russia to study U. S. diplomatic representation, Eaton said: Hopes He Continues "I can only hope that nothing will deter Mr. Vishinsky (Soviet deputy foreign minister) from continuing the line of attack that he has taken, and I would at all costs like to see Russia given the opportunity in the United Nations to strip off its own mask, so that people who value the freedoms that we have striven to maintain may see what Rusian 'freedom' really means." Continuance of Russia's present policy of criticism of the United States, Eaton continued, will help to "force on eyen the most peace-loving people the nature of the struggle to save a free world upon which we are now engaged." "It may help." he added, "to bring support for the economic action necessary if we consider the alternative of being confronted with a world run by Mr. Vishin-sky's masters.

(NANA) Key European countries asking for aid under the Marshall plan are now getting more than one-fourth of all U. S. exports. This was revealed today bv com merce department export officials who released a detailed breakdown showing that seven-Marshall Plan countries are receiving the lion's share of our current foreign shipments. The figures turned over to Secretary Harriman's committee study ing foreign aid, show that in five $380,000,000 and Italy with $220,- Machinery topped food In the total exports going to these countries, with France getting almost three times more worth of machinery and vehicles than any other country. In tlie five-month period, Europe received more than $647,000,000 worth of American machinery and $008,000,000 of food. The food went largely to Britain which took American vegetables valued at $91,000,000. months this year the U.S. exported '""r " T, , luT , , !i -icountries in nonmetallic minerals. win in vi ncnrlw 5ft M'JI nm OOTl tr,Z tw France took $55,000,000 and Brit- machinery, food, textiles and other L. nnnnn; ', M,nmniv,A merrhanrtlw aln $01,000,000 01 the $230,000,000 total shipped. These two countries, plus Sweden, also received the bulk of merchandise. Of this total, more than $2,338,- 000,000 went to Europe and more than $1,650,000,000. to seven of 16 Marshall Plan nations which are asking for a minimum of $16,000,-000,000 more In American aid. The countries were identified as the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Leading all countries is Britain, which this year already has re ceived $509,000,000 worth of mer chandise Next Is France with American metal manufacturers. In this category, France took $26,000,-000, Sweden $25,000,000 and Britain $21,000,000 of the $143,000,000 total exported. Officials said they had no inten tion of blackballing ' the receiving nations in releasing these figures, but merely to indicate that countries asking for aid already are re ceiving substantial amounts of Amercian goods. sible to operate under their regular budget. Should the courts hold that the Pima county board cannot make such an expenditure under the "emergency" provisions of state law, then the Maricopa county board also would face an impossible situation, it was pointed out. Maricopa's special authorizations from the state tax commission are the largest in the state for counties. The Pima suit was brought by five taxpayers who question the right of the tax commission to In terpret as an emergency the rec reation program instituted in that county. It also seeks to restrain the board of supervisors from speeding any part of the money. Problem Shared "Under a strict interpretation of the word 'emergency', it would be just as impossible for the Ma ricopa board of supervisors to operate as it is for the Pima board," DeSouza said. Maricopa has had to exceed its budget ' every year since 1940-41, records in the office of its comptroller show. Total tax commission authorizations to Maricopa since that time are $2,294,656.98, most of which has been spent. Starting with a budget excess of $13,520.76 in the 1941-42 year. Maricopa has increased Its requests each year since, reaching a figure of $1,307,028.83 in the last fiscal year, Its authorizations were $10,- 678.52 in 1942-43, $214,333.49 in 1943-44, $300,031.07 in 1914-45, and $413,064.31 in 1945-40. In comparison with Maricopa's total, Pima has received authoriza tions of slightly over $500,000 since 1942. From . a population standpoint, Maricopa is the largest county in the state. Pima is second. Budget Law Strictures As an example of Maricopa's in ability to live within the annual 10 per cent Increase limitation imposed by state law, it was pointed out all it could set up in last year's budget for indigent hospital and medical care was $4S0,755.23. This compares with actual exjiendi- tures for this purpose of 803,- 879.50. All that could be budgeted this year was $561,917.41, while the rapidity with which demands arc Major Labor Disputes Continue Over Nation As Others Are Ended By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Major strikes curtailing airline service to northern Europe and halting movement of shipping in Los Angeles and Lone Beach harbors continued Saturday as numerous other disputes becjan across Xhe nation.

The CIO International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's union called the dispute a lockout and the waterfront employers associations termed it an "illegal foremen's strike." Negotiations between a group of WASHINGTON. Oct. 4. (JP) Senator Ferguson (R- Mich) said today an unknown number of Russians who have taken technical training in American plants "have dis appeared." He protested the lack of information on them and government officials acknowledged thev have no idea how many such Russian trainees still are in this country, or what they are doing. Ferguson told a reporter! "An unknown number of Soviet Russian steel technicians, admitted to this country under state department visas, have disappeared."

Peurifoy wrote the senator they have no records on how many Russians have been admitted for training or are here now. Law Has Loophole Miller said he would trv to find out.
