(5) Support farm prices at a fair level and maintain basic- commodity loans. (6) Develop the distribution of nutritive foods on the widest basis possible. (7) Pursue every scientific possibility to expand the farmers' market. (8) Finally, co-operate with the world to make a prosperous agriculture at home, · "Behind all the plans for the future," Willkie _wrote, "must be the principle that the larme'rs' main problem ;; one of markets; how to get them; how to stabilize them; how to support them. With healthy, absorbing markets the farmer is prosperous. Without them he sinks back into the nightmare . of wild-eyed Washington control. _ "The single constructive effort which must be undertaken is to bring about healthy market conditions, to bring back to American life decent and workable social controls, without an economic overlord sitting in a Washington bureau. "We. must recreate what I think of as the "right to go ahead society' in this country for the lar- mer, the businessman and the worker. But don't let anyone tell you that can be done just by allowing matters to ride along as they did in the good old days."

Reports on Road Work in Hancock Garner--County Engineer William Henschen has released his report of 1943 road work and expenditures of funds on Hancock county roads. The year was essentially a road graveling p e r i o d . Twenty-two miles of new gravel and 40 miles of resurfacing were completed during the year. Only 3 miles of new grading were completed. Five wooden bridges were built. Construction costs for 1943 totaled 539,159 of which $37.556 was spent on local roads and $1,603 on trunk roads. The sum 'of $77,141.69 was spent on road maintenance which was divided as follows: S61.250.14 on local roads and $15,891.55 on trunk roads. Total cost of highway engineering in 1943 including engineer, rodman and office help was 53,211.20 or approximately 2.76% of the money spent on county highways. Road construction balances increased $6,174.84 over the previous year, although gas tax receipts were reduced by $14,695.70 Road maintenance fund balances were increased by 517,411.34. However a large part of this balance has been set aside for new equipment on order whenever it can be delivered. Hancock county now owns 11 power maintainers, 20 trucks. 6 tractors, 1 gravel loader, 1 rock crusher and a number of smaller units such as pickups, scoops, scrapers and miscellaneous road tools.

Favor Food Shipments to Freed Nations Denver--Nine out of 10 Amcri- an women approve the United States' policy oC sending food to newly liberated territories such as Sicily, now occupied by the United Nations' armed forces--according to a recent survey by the National Opinion Research Center, University of Denver. Seven of these 9 women give unqualified approval, while 2 give answers such as "if we have enough," "if they need it." or "until they can help themselves." The remaining one in 10 either is- undecided about sending food or gives a definite "No" answer. At the present time 70 per cent ol American women know that we are sending food to Sicily. A year ago only 44 per cent or the whole Population knew we were sending: food to north Africa. The questions which disclose these opinions were presented to a typical miniature of the adult female population of the United States with the proper proportion in each geographical section of rich and poor, young and old, democrats, republicans, and non-voters. Respondents were first asked: "From what you know, are we sending any food to the people in the countries we have occupied like Sicily?'' Yes 70% No -. 2 Don't know 28 1007J, The question asked a year ago had read: "Do you happen to know whether we are sending any food to north Africa to feed the people of the countries we have occupied there?" Yes, we are (informed) 44% No. we are not (uninformed) 4 Don't know (uninformed) 52 100% On this survey 85 per cent of the cross-section expressed approval of the general policy of sending rood to the people o£ occupied countries {liberated territories) such as north Africa. However, 95 per cent of the informed group approved the idea, in comparison with 77 per cent of the uninformed. On the current survey all women interviewed were asked: "Do you think we should send food to these people?" Yes 71%) Depends 19)00% No 3 Undecided 7 100% Finally those women answering "Yes" were asked to give their reasons. More than half gave humanitarian reasons such as "They need it," "They will starve if we don't," "It's our Christian duty to help," or "We are responsible for them." Others said, "it's clever diplomacy and will win us friends," "they're our allies; they're helping us," and "they can't fight and raise food too." A few. suggested that help now will lessen the problems of post-war reconstruction--"if they're fed now, they'll be healthier and less drain on us later."

Distribution should be well under way in all parts of the state by Friday, they added. The American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Disabled American Veterans organizations in Iowa said the blanks were being sent out over the state. Those discharged honorably as veterans of this war between Dec 7. 1941, and Feb. 4, 1954, are eligible to apply and those discharged after Feb. 4, will receive payments at camp without filing an application blank, they said.
