FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 19-17 DIA'THKVILLE (ARK.) COUK1EH NEWS New Hardships Facing Europe Soaring U.S. Grain Prices to increase Suffering Abroad WASHINGTON, Aug. 29. (UP) — Europe's hungry nations, already on notice that they can expect less American grain this year, were warned today that they probably •will have to pay more for what they do get. Agriculture -Department officials said the government Ls paying almost 50 cents a bushel more for export wheat than last year's average price. And the peak of Uie price spiral still is not in sight, they said. These officials said the world . need for food is so great, however that hungry nations probably wll J»y anything to gel. grain. It haf been predicted that half the world'; population will go hungry this win ter and next Spring. September wheat hit a new sea sonal high of $2.50 a bushel on tli Chicago board of trade Wednesday. The new hike was attributed largely to rejwrts that the government will bid even higher for export wheat. The Commodity Cretiit Corporation, : the government's grain purchasing agent, last year paid an average of slightly more than ?2 a bushel for v.'heat although the price finally hit $3. By that time the government was out of the market. List year's comparatively low average -was due partly to a government policy of halting purchases when wheat rose above a S[>ecifiert price. This year it has been going into the open market and buying at the current price. Meanwhile, the Commerce Department reported that American food exports during the first half of 1947 totalled $1,241.030.003. This was an increase of $30.000,000 over the corresponding period last year. Search for Jail Breakers gt.

'And young BITAVII, \vho served in Italy with the 3S'.h Infantry Division, added there would be mighty few water pistols, electric shocker canes, or water-filled piilows tossed Jrom high windows for any of the veterans of World War II. "We're leaving that stuff to the older toys,' 'he said. "You know how they arc? They get a lot of fun out of horseplay and I guess they're too set in their ways to change, bui we younger guys h more serious things on our minds." Brown said that universal military training and veteran housing problems were first on the list. They outrank such antics as chasing n girls down iifth avenue by a couple of miles. '"We figure we played enough when we were kids," explained Wil- soii Turner, 27, of Austin. Texas. "Anyhow all. this .rough -stuff gives the Legion a blaek f -cye."
