Germany CSt A vast project to boost food production in West Germany is ready to go into operation. Known as the Luebke plan, it calls for thorough and speedy mechanization of farms, construction of more modern farm houses, barns and silos, and intensified use of waste land throughout the country. The plan also aims at consolidating tbe scattered plots owned by many farmers into unbroken fields better adapted to machinery. And it calls for better educated farmers with more up-to-date agricultural knowledge. To pay for all this, West Germany's new minister of food, agriculture and forestry, Dr. USED FIBRE DRUMS Manufacturer has available for at once and on continued monthly basis Lever Pack Fibre Drums suitable for re-use.

STORE HOURS: I a.m. to p.m.; FRIDAYS, t a.m. to 9 p.m. STORE CLOSED MONDAYS Heinrich Luebke, advocates eas ing the tax burden for farmers and giving more and cheaper long-term farm loans. From 1945 to 1948, West Germany imported roughly 70 per cent of all its food. Since then, agricultural production has soared and today is 16 per cent above the pro-war level. s Nevertheless, densely populated, highly industrialized West Germany still consumes 35 per cent more food than her farms produce. Closing of this gap is the ultimate aim of the Luebke plan. .,U. Increasing farm production in Germany is a problem that at first sight appears almost un-solvable. Virtually every square yard of fertile soil already is being tilled, and the problem is mainly one of intensifying production by boosting the yield per acre a long and costly process. One of West Germany's foremost agricultural experts, Dr. Andreas Hermes, who heads the powerful German Farmers Union, endorses the Luebke plan wholeheartedly. It will require a lot of money, patience and utmost caution, he says. His experts estimate that 10 years will be necessary and that the, cost probably will exceed six billion On MEIER CO. - 6432 - "Good Furniture BALLHORN'S Eighth St. and St. " i : " 5 dollars. The cost factor will, in itself, compel the government to go slow -in view of -the scar city of capital in West Germany today. Some quarters advocate elim inating small farms entirely and allowing them to be absorbed by the big ones which operate more efficiently. Neither Luebke nor Hermes will consider such a radical solution. ..Both believe the small farm, as a family enterprise, is justified. ' They say the small farmer should concentrate on specialized products, however, and stop trying to compete with the big fellows. The farmers themselves are not enthusiastic over the Luebke plan. Traditionally conservative, most would prefer to keep things the way they are unless they are shown they can profit from a change. Rich Named To Subcommittee -Of Recreation Howard ' R.

Grant, commander in chief of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, came here from Washington for the 73rd annual encampment of the organization. When the grey-haired general called at the home of the 107-vear-old Albert Woolson, the veteran's daughter wrote a note in large letters informing On Grant Woolson is deaf. Still amazingly spry, Woolson got to his feet with a big smile to greet the grandson of the famous Civil War general. Woolson, who through the years nas always oeen outspoKen in his praise of the first Gen. Grant, paid tribute in a booming voice to "one of the greatest military men that ever lived." Before the general left, he wrote a note telling Woolson he had a box of cigars for him. Woolson smokes several cigars a day. . . A bronze bust of Woolson will be presented to the city of Duluth during the convention. The presentation will be made by Mrs. Helen Newbright, Dayton, Ohio, rational patriotic instructor of the auxiliary. Alcatraz Is To Fall Apart, Claim ALCATRAZ, Calif. (UP)-The famous "Rock" of the federal prison system is full of cracks. Its plumbing system is rotten; wind, waves and old. age have caught up with Alcatraz. Federal Prison Director James V. Bennett has told Congress the government will have to pay up to four million dollars to keep Alcatraz from caving in. Or perhaps better still, the government's only "maximum security" penitentiary should be moved off the island. Alcatraz is as escape-proof as ever. The 290 dangerous prisoners who serve their time isolated by the waters of San Francisco Bay aren't about to slip out. But federal prison officials believe Alcatraz, which was con verted from a U.S. Army prison to a civilian prison only 20 years ago, may have served its pur pose. "It would pay us, and would pay the government in the long run to replace Alcatraz with an institution more centrally located," Bennett said. "Perhaps in the Midwest." Location Is Costly One of the costliest aspects of running Alcatraz is its location. Though it draws inmates from all over the United States, it lies at one of; the western-most spots on the map. To see what is wrong with Al catraz besides its location you have to, take a flashlight and follow prison officers into the dark, catacomb-like cellar beneath the main cell block. There in the maze of pitch black corridors connecting what used to be the dungeon of an Army disciplinary barracks is the fetid odor of salt water disintegration. Electrical conduits and water pipes are covered with layers of rust. The vast series of salt water mains that make up the prison's sanitary system is rotting rapidly under the double-action erosion of salt air and salt water the pipes are carrying. A salt water sanitary system is the only kind feasible on Alcatraz, which ,has no source of fresh water. Water used for human consumption, and for gardening on the few patches of soil on the 12-acre island, must be brought from the mainland by barge.

Timbers are being used for temporary shoring. Evidence of the settling process on the island can be seen in the main cell block. The floor is uneven and cracked. Outside, strong winds and salt air have eaten away the con crete rail along a road leading up the west side of the island. While it hasn't been decided whether to repair Alcatraz or build a new prison, opinion is fairly uniform throughout the federal prison system on one point: The country can't get along without either Alcatraz or a good substitute. "Without displaying any sentimental attachment for the Rock, prison officials will tell you they believe it would be hard to conceive of an institution on the mainland, however high its walls, that would be as escape-proof," Bennett said. Few prisoners have ever tried to escape from Alcatraz, and none who tried has ever succeeded. Two kidnapers, Theodore Cole and Ralph Roe, tried to make it in December, 1937. They cut the bars in the prison shops and jumped into the bay during a heavy fog. They were never seen again, and official records list them as drowned.

Deputies voted the fast-mov- ing premier the widest economic powers given any French gov- ernment since World War II. While the premier won his,"1 ' victorv bv a comfortable mar- gin, the vote supporting his measures was the smallest of four important ballots the Assembly has taken on his policies during his eight weeks in office. Mendes-France was approved as premier June 17 by a vote of 417-47. His Indochina cease - fire bargain won a 4 1 1-14 vote, Today's test was the first of two through which the premier seeks to clear the boards of all outstanding problems so the nation can concentrate on the all- important issue of the European Army Plan. Laten today the Assembly was schedulea to vote on the premier's request to delay discussion of his Tunisian, Moroccan and Indian settlement policies until Aug. 27. That will be after the assembly has held its showdown debate on French ratification of the controversial European -Defense Community (EDC) treaty which would bring 500,- 000 armed West Germans into a continental defense force. The Communist Party aban doned Mendes-France in today's balloting for the first time. The 99 Communist votes wereVith- held, ostensibly because MendeS' France's national recovery pn' gram does not call for immediate wage boosts. However, with a decision coming up so soon on the European Army Plan, the Communists did not wish to arouse the premier's animosity by voting against him. The abstention of the Communists was partially' offset by the support of the Roman Catholic Popular Republicans (MRP) To Make That Repay Monthly for 36 Months H5.97 31.94 "63.88 of Service to mm'i Blral!y MDERAl DEPOSIT PETERSBURG.
