"Remember that last July and August President Trumrm asked for even more control powers than President Roosevelt had during World War II?"' he reminded the farmers, and added, "Thank God Congress didn't grant them."

Mr. Short expressed his belief that World War III is not inevita- ! ble saying, "personally I doubt that i we will have a third world war," j and that if we were to have direct ! war with Russia It would have come i during the Berlin airlift or shortly ' after the Korean outbreak." \ He qualified his opinion by point- '• tag to government statistics which ! show that the nation Is much ! stronger now that It was at those times.

Contract Kxplrf, The present labor contract with Mexico expired two weeks ago and President Truman, so /rir, has refused to extend it In order to give Congress time to pass a new one. To allow the contract to die now would be hazardous, Mr. Short, pointed out, because a big crop without extra labor would be disastrous and that farmers need assurance from some source before planting this year's crop. The Mexican labor situation has been made even more Important by the fact that agriculture lost 890,000 additional workers In the last 12 months and has prospects ol losing fiOO.OOO to 1.000,000 more within the continued Industrial buildup caused by the re-armament program. • - ----—«o ••"»**- ww,wv lu i.uw.wu mure wumn ine trip .to Mexico and his next 12 months due to the nation's Cancer is common in all animali from tiny Insects to elephants.
