ENO.. AUG. 4 (UP.)—Winston Churchill charged today thai the Labor government had "frittered av,ay" the American Loan on "Inrtiilgenccs" such ;ui picture shows and tnhncco instc:id oT spending it for post-war rehabilitation.

In his first political speech since he underwent an operation for hernia, tho wartime prime minister ripped into the Laborit.es for their policies while the nation was drifting toward economic disaster, ' He said a government statement of super-austerity, expected Wednesday, could, nol offer imy measure "that would not have been far more effective if marie a year six months RKO." The Lahoritos, Churchill said. waited until too late because they were too busy planning and making their brave new world of controls and queues, of hordes of officials and multitudes ol regulations.' 1 Says Condition AlartnLn^ Churchill said the conservatives had supported an action taken in the public interest, such as the American loan, "although I was alarmed at sonic of the conditions that were imposed on it." ! "However. I relied and rely now on the wisdom of the fair minded American people to make the necessary casements without which the policy for which they had made heavy sacrifices wilt certainty fail in. its effect," he udded. 'Having supported the loan, he said, "I will support and justify further appeals to the United States provided that we are doing our best, that we are makint; the most of our resources, that we tire determiiicd to become a self-supporting nation and system at the earliest moment." Speaking to a crowd on the grounds of Blenheim Palace, Churchill, said: -'The cab:nct ministers tell us : every weekend" how' bad our position is nnd that the l2ih hour will strike before the end of the year, "Thc main facts arc obvious to every thinking man and v.'omfii\. Under the capitalist system of free enterprise we had bred in Britain nearly -17,000,003 people, half of whose food came from beyond the sens but whose progress was constant and whose ^Lundanl of living before the war was already the highest in Europe. Fears Second Disaster "Since then two disasters liavp come upon us—a second worki wai and the first Socialist government. With the majority of supreme exertions we surmounted the first disaster. The question which glares upon us today is how shall we free ourselves of the second. 1 Churchill snirt the only possible justification for the U. S. loin was to enable the British "to ge their industry and agricultiu'i working and to bring in tho necessary food to keep them alive unti world trade was restored. "It was thought this would take between three and four years of good administration, strict economy and united effort by all the parties tu\1 classes under conditions of growing freedom from wartime restrictions." he said. He said those hopes had not been fulfilled, and the fault was not wholly that of the government but partly of rising prices in the U. S. •This is an aspect I am sure tho United stales ought, to and will take into consideration in relaxing conditions which hamper our purchases in sterling from our dominions and colonies." nc said ran a close second. tlon for Arkansas 1,281.000 bales from saciedlof which 85 per cent or hales, was produced in Arkansas counties.
