S Friday, March 17, 19M MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NEED CORN FOR PROCESSORS Score WFA's Livestock and Feed Program Washington, (JP)--A sharp criticism of the war food administration's livestock and feed program by top-ranking officials of the war production board came to light Friday as the government sought ways of preventing o new crisis in the manufacture of numerous food and industrial products made from corn. Processors appealed to the \\F.\ Thursday to requisition corn supplies held by country elevators or received by them for a definite period in the future.

Corn has been moving of£ farms i insufficient quantities to meet eeds of processors, largely be- ause of short feed supplies and price relationship which en- ourages feeding the grain to ogs rather than selling it. A warning of a possible crisis i processors' needs was made ast fall by Charles E. Wilson, vice airman of the war production oard, and \V. Y. Elliott, director f the WPB's division ot stock- iling and transportation, in let- ers and reports which went, it vas learned, to the white house, ic war and navy departments, nd to War Food Administrator farvin Jones. Undersecretary of War Robert '. Patterson and Undersecretary f the Navy James Forrestal, in joint letter to the war food dministrator emphasizing the es- cntial war character of an ample upply of corn for processors, also irged "positive steps" to prevent . market shortage. The letters .nd reports became available in onnection with a government- ndustry conference on the corn hortage problem. "The production of hogs is out }f balance with the agricultural program as a whole," said a report prepared by Elliott. "This is he result of government price upports of hogs, ceiling prices on commercial corn, and the war oo d administration's umvilling- iess to rescind a gox'eriiment promise to farmers at a political- y inopportune time." : Apart from the serious impact of the hog unbalance on the meat, grain and food programs," he report continued, "is its deleterious etfect on the industrial programs. The- price support for logs is having serious repercussions on iron ore, alcohol, leather, adhesives, starches for industrial uses (such as core binder for foundries, metal castings and molds, alumina production, explosives, rubber, batteries, textiles, Pharmaceuticals, asbestos) and the like. This occurs because ihe consumption of feed by hogs results in a shortage of all feec ;rains, a maldistribution in transportation, and a shortage in the basic raw materials necessary to war production." More than 8,000 American Indians saw service in World War I most of them as volunteers. Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy. GIVE TO THE RED CROSS HUGHES STORE FRENCH LEADERS ARE DEPORTED Pre-Invasion Precaution by Germans Revealed E D I T O R ' S NOTE: Ralph E. leinzeii, former United Press dice tor for France, tells in this dis- atch how the Germans, as a pre- ivasioa precaution, have stripped ranee of industrialists, bankers nd professional leaders. Ileinzen eturned to this country aboard exchange liner Gripsholm Vednesday after spending 13 nonths in a German internment amp at Baden Baden. By RALPH E. IIEIXZEN Neil- York, (U.R)--As one of the hases of German pre-invasion actics, thousands of French in- .ustrialists, bankers, lousiness and 'rofessional men have b e e n ounded up in Paris and the "rench provinces in the last lew .'eeks and their mass deportation o concentration camps in Ger- nany lias followed rapidly. The lumber of these hostages already ixceeds 4,000. Baron de La Grange, a member if the French senate married to ,n American, was one of the iu- erned patriots. He is iu a camp n the Austrian tyro!. As a mem- er of the senate air committee he was an ardent pre-war advo- atc of a powerful French air orce based on the purchase of \merican planes and made fre- luent trips to America to hasten leliveries. Count Robert De Vogue, head of the lamily holdings in the champagne vineyards and bottling plants, was arrested on a definite charge of aiding "terrorists" and in a camp in Germany. The ermans pretend that machine jun and other arms were found :iidden in his champagne cellars. In reality, the findings of the alleged cache gave Germany control over one of the biggest champagne firms in France, because as ioon as Vogue was arrested and interned, the Germans named a provisional administrator, a German, who took over the direction of the firm. Most of the other industrialists and bankers had only sentimental connections with America. None was an American, but several had married American women. None was known to be a militant opponent to collaboration, but none was a real collaborator because the Germans arrested no banker or industrialist who had in any way favored the German war effort in French industry. Most of these hostages were arrested in their homes and within a few hours found themselves on their way to camps in Germany. In several instances, they were able to negotiate their release and returned to France, bringing stories of the crowded camps. Previously, the Germans had arrested and transferred to Germany several hundred French political personalities, i n c l u d i n g senators and deputies who had taken no active part in politics LLEGAL LIQUOR OFFICE RAIDED Police Take "Orders" for 6 Hours in Chicago Chicago, ()--A luxuriously fur- lished suite of offices in a La Salle street skyscraper, described by Police Sgt.

One order, he related, was for 250 cases from a man in De- roil; another was for 100 cases from a New York City caller. The detective said he also ar- ·anged a meeting at the office with a Chicago man who had called in o order 200 cuses. He was prom- sed 75 cases immediately if he would come to the office. He arrived, accompanied by a companion, and both were taken into custody. Later, 2 other men came to the office anct they also were arrested, POURING IT ON--Mason City and North Iowa housewives are taking a vigorous part in the salvage grease collection that is going to help end Hitler and Tojo.

Mandel, Daladier, Blum and La Chambre, who had been taken months ago from prisons near Riom to Germany where they are held in scattered fortresses. By these arrests the Germans appear to be attempting to insure themselvees against the formation of a provisional government by these personalities in the event of a French uprising coincident with invasion. At present the only French ex-premier still at liberty is Albert Sarraut who was premier in 193G when Hitler marched into the Rhineland in violation of the Versailles treaty.

Party Responsibility Jefferson--''Good government in the next years is dependent upon the republican party," declared James I. Dolliver, candidate for Congress, before the Greene county republican convention Friday. "The new dealers and democrats are even less capable now than ever to solve the tremendous problems confronting us.*' he declared. As shown by the quarrel between the president and con- ,rc-ss over the lax bill, a near laralysis h;is been readied. Only iy placing the federal government iin in the hands ot the G. O. P. will we achieve good government, which is the ultimate aim of our arty system. ''One does not have to be a political soothsayer to foretell even greater tension between the white house and congress, unless a complete changeover is made. The by- elections taking place have demonstrated this. The republican parly is on the march. From a low number of governors in 1933, there bre now 26 republican governors. And today in the lower house of congress, we have a near majority." Dolliver. nephew of the laic Senator Jonathon P. Dolliver and past Iowa American Legion commander, said many serious prob- j lems need to be solved, and that I only by a united administration | can solutions be reached. j "The time has come for a change of leadership. The returning veterans have ; right to demand an America with freedom of speech, untrammcled elections, and liberty of enterprise."
