To Purchase Wheat On Market; Won't Set Price WASHINGTON, June 2 -- iVP) -The government has decided to buck the grain m a r k e t for f u t u r e nupplios of wheat needt for export rather than try to fix a top price it is w i l l i n g to pay. Agriculture Deportment officials Bald privately today they had non- eluded that the oly way the government could be sure of getting supplies for needy areas abroad IK to pny whatever tho market do- mnncls. Hopeful of keeping wheat prices from jumping back to the $3-A- ibiifihel level reached last winter, 'tho government had considered setting a pric at which it would by wheat, on the theory such an offer would fix the market price. Need Critical This idea finally was tossed aside because of the urgent needs of many foreign areas between now and thoir own Fall hnrvoHta, Tho International HJmorgonay Food Council, intor-Kovernment which dividM wcarse foods Importing countries, has the situation in this pro- period more critical in some countries than a year .ago. The government reportedly decided formers and others obtaining 1047 wheat would simply hold It-he grain if a federal purchase 'price were set The transportation situation also played a part in the decision, With a record Winter wheat crop in prospect, officials said It woll b? necessary to start grain moving as soon as It Is harvested because of tho critical shortage of freight uars. Involves Risks Delays in marketing also would involve risks of damage to grain In the Southwest, where there is inadequate space to store large quantities. Government buying of heat from he 1047 crop should get under way in volume within a week or 10 days. The harvest will start in northern Texas this week. The government already has promised to ship Bovera.l million bushels'to occupied Germany In July. This grain must bo bought in June, Plants Memorial agency among termed harvest Mayor II.

Rev. John E. Hines University of Texas graduates night. The bishop coadjutor of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas said that "you can not stop Communism by name-calling. You can not prevent its making headway by simply crying that it is alien, You can not destroy its influences by jailing its proponents or by outlawing 11 from the ballot."

Of Europe By SI G HID AKNE WASHINGTON, June 2-- /p) -The recurring notion that Europe might be happier as a "United States of Europe" is getting a sort of laboratory test in three of the little north countries. Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxemburg are working toward an economic union which will mean their people can do business with each other just about as tho people of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland do. The experiment Is getting a good bit of anxious and hopeful watching from experts who think Europe 1 . 1 ; t a r i f f walls and patch-work currency systems only add fuel to the flames of antagonistic nationalism. To Set Up Schedule This September the three little countries will set up a uniform Onion Juice Adds A Kick Herbicide NBC Claims Many Stars In Majors Developed By It AMERICA'S NUMBER ELECTRIC SHAVER FOURSOME No other Shaver offers this head combination ... no other shaver will give you a quicker... smoother ahave. To AP Newst'eaturcK NEW YORK--Onion Juice can boost the potency of the weed killer ·2,4-D by 10 to 20 times two Michigan State College Experiment station horticulturalists report. 2,4-D is the nickname for 2,4- lichlorophenoxyacetlc acid, a her- 'liclcle that kills some · plants, ln- ·luding weeds, by throwing their · r o w t h processes out of balance, The extra potency from addi- ion of onion Juice was discovered ,y Dt'fi. E. H. L/ucns and C, L. ·rammer,- in laboratory work which ·romlses 1.0 make use of the weed :lller more effective and much heaper. The juice has to be specially pre- ared and diluted one part to 20 ·r 30 parts of water for the great- \st effectiveness, they said. Work s being continued with field tests, nd also to discover just what It -» in the onion juice that gives lie 2,4-D the extra kick. They Indicated that the greatest · f f o c t was obtained from one ;ound of onions, properly mashed Mid strained, and mixed with about ,! l i gallons of water-mixed 2.4-D olution. Tho onion effect was found In vork which originally started to Uscover chemicals which might ovver the potency of the weed kll- T. Garlic was tried, but although Is chemically related to onion, .L had less boosting effect. Tomato x tract showed no action, while he juice of rod beets .significantly owered the 2,4-D potency, they aid. V. R. Gardener, experiment sta- ion director, said "although the indies are only p r e l i m i n a r y , thorn ^ reason to believe that the cost f materials for 2.4-D a p p l i c a t i o n o a given area for weed control ·an be g r e a t l y reduced. That will WICHITA. Kas.-- f/P)-- Many of the major league's brightest stars wore developed through the program of the National Baseball Congress, the National Baseball Annual reveals. · x Orocly Hatton, third sacker for Cincinnati, and Eddie Waitkus, star first baseman for the Chicago Cubs/ two of the majors' prize rookies last season, both are graduates of the program, each having*" played in the national tournament at Wichita. '! Other major league stars who played In the taournaments include Dave (Boo) Perriss, Freddie Hutchinson. Joe Gariglola, John Rucker and Johnny Pesky. The 1947 National tournament at Wichita will be preceded by 48 state championship events to qualify the nation's leading teams, tariff schedule. The Belgian, the Dutchman and the Luxemburg cl- ti7,en, buying from country "X," nil will pay the same tariff on the same commodity. Right now thore Is nc tariff or customs duty between them except a few excise taxes a,nd luxury duties. And they are not so much based on the old Idea of shutting out foreign goods as they arc a deterent to trade in non-essentials. No visas are needed to travel between the countries, and the hope Is to keep it that way. The Netherlands is the most liberal on this score. They already have made agreements with several European nations--the United Kingdom the largest among them -- to permit free travel, wiping out the nuisance tax of the visa fee. Common Currency Eventually the three little countries plan to have a common currency. Happily Belgium and Holland are markedly complimentary to each other in the things they turn out, Strangely, lying as close as they do on a small part of the world's map, Belgium Is roughly a Pittsburgh to The Netherlands' combination of Kansas and Minnesota. Up to World War II the three nations charged t a r i f f s on each other's products. With the tariff now out of the way, the price the consumer pays in all three countries will be lower. Trade has already picked up noticeably in the area. "Therefore, let it be said Christians can no longer the dictates of our contemporary culture as ultimate truth in human relations," he continued. "Where It disenfranchises, Christians must speak for the dispossessed. "Where it segregates, Christians must feel that shame of segregation, as doing violence to the Christian doctrine of man. "Where It still enslaves, no Christian can, in conscience clear, breathe freely. "For another, and a mightier one has spoken. Another and mightier Is our Judge. "Someday, both to save our souls, and our civilisation, we must 'stand up and bo counted.' We must conclude with St. Paul: 'I shall oboy God, rather than man.'"

Lawson To Report Planning Progress On Proposed Dam McALLEN, June 2--U. S. Commissioner L. M. L/awson of the international Boundary and Water Commission Is expected to arrive Wednesday to make a, progress report, on plans for construction of the first international dam on the Rio Grande.
