Spoils Trade Agreement The t a k i n g over of Czechoslovakia by Germany nullifies the trade agreement made by tins country with Uie Czechs. Germany is the only nation in the world to which we do not give the benefit ot the lower tariffs under the trade agreements. This is because Germany discriminates against our exports and prefers to make barter deals for the imports it needs. | Jn addition, our tariffs against i German goods arc being boosted I because of United States 1 disap- j proval of the territorial grabs' made by Hitler. So far all practical i purposes v.-e have .stopped t r a d i n g j with central Europe. Took Pork Products f Germany used to take better j than 300 million pounds ot lard I and other hog products annually. 1 Czechoslovakia took around 80 ! million and Austria 30 to 35 million. Hungary is a small e x p o r t e r : of hog _producls, usually selling about 25 million pounds a year. Rumania has been a negligible i ·* factor in the world hog products ' S trade. | _ Now this is all gone. ' Thc story is similar for wheat ui and corn. Rumania and Hungary ' Z have been .small exporters of these-' grains, but their exports would! hardly have been sufficient to '· TM supply Czechoslovakia alone in j 9 the past. Hitler plans to increase ! ·-. production of foodstuffs in R u - ' mama and Hungary as he has in I i£ Germany so that he will be indc- · pendent of foreign supplies. Process Is Completed Our exports of all products to · Germany and Austria had di-.-in- ' died in 1938 to about one-fourth I winch they were in 1929. Now we ' can expect even this small a m o u n t ! to be decreased. And we arc losing as well most of the good market in Czcc-ho-Slovakia and the small markets in R u m a n i a and Hungarv. As Secretary Wallace sa id the other day, we will have to gel accustomed to doing without the trade we had in central Europe. \Ve had lost most of it before the recent G e r m a n march into Czccho-SIovakia.
