Wednesday Evening, June 5, 1957. Baghdad Pact's Prestige, Power Becoming Greater The Baghdad Treaty against Communist penetration in the Middle East has made a remarkable comeback. Jn fact, the five - country alliance is stronger and potentially more important now' than it ever had been since it was signed in Baghdad. Iran, in February, 1955. It started out as purely a "paper pact"—the loosest of all the free-world alliances against Communist aggression. It was threatened with a complete break-up after the British- French invasion of the Suez Canal Zone last November. But the meeting of the Baghdad Treaty members which started in Karachi. Pakistan. Monday, appears to mark a turning point which will strengthen Allied ties in the whole area of Asia from Turkey to Pakistan. U.S. A Sponsor The Baghdad Treaty membres are Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Great Britain. The United States, which spon- sorde the treaty, refused to join H. At that time, (he Eisenhower administration did not want to involve itself so closely in Middle Eastern affairs. The fact that all its members but Britain are Moslem nations, and that Iraq is a member of the nine - nation Arab League, nearly caused the break-up >f the pact when Britain joined France in the canal invasion. The four Moslem members boycotted Britain, and held meetings without inviting Britain to take part. But Britain is back at the current Karachi meeting. The United States, which had limited its part to being represented by an observer and to joining the economic committee of the pact, formally Joined the military committee at Monday's opening meeting. Thai means that except for admitting it, the United States is now practically a full member of the pact. The delcKatc.t are discussing the formation of a formal military set-up, which will be aimed at coordinating their defense organizations. It is possible that Shah Moham- me Rdeza Pahlevi may be named before long as supreme commander of the treaty organization. It is possible also that within I the next few months Jordan may be invited again to join the treaty. This time, after the victory of young King Hussein over his pro- Egyptian, pro - Russian political enemies, he may find it possible to accept. If the present trend in the Middle. East continues, it is just possible also that pro - Western Saudi Arabia and Lebanon may : be brought into it. Delphi Mrs. John E.

REQUIRES FLIP 7 IS Sec. Benson Warns ;Turkey Growers Not jTo Depend on Help I WASHINGTON (UP)—Secretary of Agriculiure Ezra Taft Benson today warned turkey growers to stop depending on the government to bail them out of low-price markets. He told them to curtail sharply the hatch of turkey poults to avoid production of a crop in excess of consumer demand at reasonable prices to producers. "The turkey . industry cannot count on government buying in every year as a part of its market outlet," Benson said. "Instead, all opera'.ives in the industry—breeders, hatcherymen, and turkey growers—should make every effort to avoid over-production for better returns; in the open market. "This could be done by sharply reducing-the setting of turkey eggs in early June," Benson said. The turkey hatch through April was up 8 per cent, and eggs in incubators on May 1 indicate the Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Tbre* May hatch will be up about 3 per cent. Benson said the hatch during the first five months of 1957 probably will be up about 3,600,000 birds more than during the same period last year. The department bought about 26 million pounds of surplus ready- to-cook turkeys in 10513 in a 1 : attempt to bolster market prices for live birds.- The turkeys were used in the school lunch program. "Even wi'.h this assistance." Benson said, "prices received by producers were the lowest in several years, and averaged only about 70 per cent of parity during the major marketing season."
