Humor to tO|i Sugar, these days, is being made all rumors: Sugnr stockpiles were into dynamite. No—not the kind being built up so that, rationing they use to blow up bridges in war- restrictions can be lifted Just he- time, but, the much more highly I fore the election, when ration-free explosive stuff known us .political sugar will be offered as a great gift to the American pce-pul who dynamite. It's this way: Twice, in fireside dials, since sugar first went under rationing two years ago, the President has indicated that sugar rations might 1/e increased and has even hinted that the ration would be entirely removed. Thus far, he has not been able to make good. Tlie President's two hints on easing the ration naturally started a lot of rumors. Naturally, everyone in, the Industry agreed with .the President and for once they all thought lie was wonderful. The big' question was: "When?" All branches of the trade—grow-. ers, refiners, shippers, importers.! dealers, confectioners, c tinners,' makers of soft drinks and syrups— tlie whole sugar lobby began turning on the heat lo force the issue. They built up stockpiles of-statistics to show that the present restrictions—particular^, on industrial uses—were entirely unnecessary. Whatever the figures, the Combined .Food Board, U. S. War Food Administration and Office of Price Administration still say there is not, .enough sugar in .sight to increase •the rations. . RUMORS AND MORE KUMOKS But the rumors' continue to fly. Rumor: There «re two million ions more sugar in stockpile limn the government is admitting. Rumor: The British are building up a million-ton stockpile. Rumor: Cuba and Puerto Hico are full of sugar wilt thereupon vole Mr. Roosevelt hack into office for a fourth four years. Sugar lobbyists aren't above trying to plant these rumors just to get everybody stirred up. . On behalf of Die industrial users of sugar, now limited from 70 to 80 l>cr ccnl of NM1 consumption, Hep. Uiirlcl J. Joiiknum of lh e big sugar bi'el slnte Michigan has nmdu « couple of speeches In the Home. The British Supply council culled a press confclvnco In Washington for its siisiii' expert, Sir Wllllum Rouk. lo explain that the HiIUsli weren't bulldlnt; up n stockpile mid that the v were supplying siujnv to U. S. troops la urltnln and elsewhere, under reverse lend-leasc. A IlKl'OKT COMING 111- Of greatest Interest., however, Is 11 survey on u. s. sugar supplies now being • niiidc In Ot>A by Itaorlli Bunker of New York, vice president of the Nnlional Refining company and n member of OPA's Siifiir Industry Advisory Commlltfe. Hunker's study Is belli}; made with White House blrsslsg to Bet the mil for- sure truth, ills report should bo ready In the nenr future. Hint It will change the picture any Is considered an extremely long shot, Sir William Hook, sneaking from (he European point ol view, goes so fur as lo say Unit .stockpiles have not yet been built up foi 1 post- «'nr relief, that liicrcastns ll\e rations now would be n great mistake, and Unit to meet the sugar demands of the liberated countries it will be necessary to continue m- tlonliig for perhaps two ycnrs after Hie war. Hut this is getting Into world su- Biii 1 politics, which | s even more cx- ploslve than the domestic variety.
