KANSAS CITY, Oct. 25. W) —*Farm-to-market "roads" that will reach all over the world were proposed here today. N. E. Dodd, director-general of the Food and Agriculture Organization of (he United Nations, described a plan to help move surplus crops from the farms lo the hungry, ill-clothed peoples of the world. : He said the FAO will consider a proposal for an international commodity clearing house at its annual conference in Washington Nov. 21.

The International clearing houre will open up a new international farm-to-market highway," he asserted. The convention opened today and ill run through Thursday. J.'W.
