OR—Representative Phillips (R-Calif.) said tonight he would demand on his return to Washington that War Food Administrator Marvin Jones come to England immediately for conferences whir-h, Phillips declared, might avert postwar chaos for the American farmer. "Britain's food requirements after the war must be learned at the earliest possible moment." he said, "and the way to find out what they will lie is for Jones to come over hero and talk things over with British officials. "American and British farmers have boosted production far past prewar levels. It has been a magnificent performance, hut what will happen when the war ends'.' "Knglish farm output has doubled since the war started, while American has shot up from about tin per cent of capacity before the war to about MO per cent." He predicted that Kngland would maintain most of its production gain after the war and would arrange with her dominions for most of what she does not raise at home. "Where will that leave the American farmers who have produced all the way'.'" Phillips said in an interview. "You can't, turn farm production off like water at a faucet. There's a great necessity for agricultural planning but all our government seems to think about is gelling Industry back on a peacetime basis. "Already thousands of American farmers arc contracting for land on which to raise next year's crop without knowing whether there will be a market for their produce. They should be told how long lend-lcase will continue after the war and what Britain is going to do for money when there isn't any more lend-lease."
