BLYTHEVILLE VOL. XLIV—NO. 127 Blylhevlllc Dully News Blyttteville Courier Blyllicvlllc Herald Mississippi Valley Leader mK_130MlNANT- NEWSPAPER OK NORTHEAST* ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI NEWS 1 British Launch $400,000,000 Food Program Five- Year Plan Gets Special Attention of Members of Cabinet LONDON. Aug. 21. (UP) — TJlc government today announced a five- year t400,000.000 program to boost British food production and the cabinet again was summoned into special session to deal with the crave economic crisis. The farm production scheme was designed to lessen Britain's reliance on food imports and will be concentrated on lifting production of products such as pork, eggs, beef mutton, cereal and linseed which normally arc Imported on a dollar basis. The fin-in program was the first of a whole scries of emergency measures which will be invoked to meet the crisis caused by suspension of the American loan after the bulk of Britain's remaining dollar hoard had, been syphoned orr in the greatest .run on Ihe Bank or England -since the days or the Spanish Armada. Next In line was expected to be a new drastic cut in food rations. Food minister John Straclicy is abandoning his vacation and rush- iiiK to London to improvise new rationing programs. Emergency Session Held Today's cabinet meeting was a skeleton emergency session. Prime Minister Clement Attlee did not return from lii s Wales vacation and the ministers met under the chairmanship of Herbert Morrison, lord president of the council. Those present included Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcviri, Fuel Minister Enismnucl Shinwell 'and Defense Minister A. V. Alexander. A full cabinet meeting will be held Monday. The cabinet was expected to discuss Ihe possibility of going to Washington with requests for a new dollar loan to tide Britain over until the Marshall plan .is functioning. A decision oa this, however. was still to be made. The stock market today displayed .a cautious but calm attitude.- Slashing import cuts were prospect and they were certain. to fall heavily on the already grim ; fa r e , which comprises the British ....,: iW«ai. .Supplies, Lulled ,., The first cut was expected in the meat ration -which already stands at a ;littlc less than 22-cents worth of meat per person per week. Two- cents probably will be hacked off this allowance and other reductions all along the line were anticipated. The British public was stunned by the revelation that the economic crisis was so acute that a full-scale international "run" on the British treasury to convert pounds into dollars had bCs-n in progress until the drastic action taken late yesterday. For all practical purposes the great American loan — the $3,750,000,000 fund which was intended to get Britain's post-war economy clicking — was washed up. Clement Attlee will remain prime minister but probably will announce changes in his cabinet about Sept. 19. according lu the Daily Herald, labor party newspaper. The sorely-tried British people braced themselves for forthcoming. official announcements defining exactly what new blows to their comfort and well-being they must endure. Chancellor of the Exchequer [Hugh Dalton warned them List nighl that the decision halting conversion of sterling into dollar.; would mean more hardship, Baptist Leader Predicts Churchill to Return to Power in Great Britain ATLANTA. Ga.. Aug. 21. (UP) — Dr. Louie D. Newton, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention wuo returned recently from a tour of six European countries today predicted the return to power of Winston Churchill. "A change of government In England Is as certain as the ebb and flow of the tides," Newton said. "And my guess is that It will be Mr. Churchill again. Indeed, one hears only Mr. Churchill's name as Britishers talk hopefully of the future." HI,VTHKVIL1,K, ARKANSAS, THUKSDAY. AUGUST 21, KM 7 Motorcycle Delivered For Use by City Police A new black.

(UP> — Britain will withdraw f.ljO.OOO.W) of her loan from Ihe United States between now and Aug. 29, leaving her only $400.000,000 in remaining credits, it was learned authoritatively today. The withdrawal of $450.C03.COO will be the last made by the Br ttsli until agreement is reached a a permanent revision of the "free convertibility" clause of her $3.- | 75C.OCO.OOO loan from Lan United States. This clause required her to surrender dollars on demand lo nations holding British pounds in certain accounts. Britain notified the U. S.

The first withdrawal of $150.000.- OCO will be made today. Tile second on Aug. 25, and the final one on Aug. 29. A high treasury official said yesterday's action temporarily suspending the convertibility clause "pulled that country out of the fire" at least for tiie lime being as far as Britain's dollar problems were concerned. Sir Wilfred Eady, British "dollar mission" chief, said the loan modifications plus emergency measures at home,night pull Britain through its present..crisis, without further outside • help.
