TUESDAY, AUGUST 12, 195S Plentiful Food Supplies Seen For Nation Despite Drought BLYTHEVILLR (ARK.) COURIER NEWS supplies of food appear to be in store during the year ahead de» spite last month's crop damaging drought in the South and Northeast. In its latest measurement of production prospects, the Agriculture Department predicted late yesterday that the combined' volume of all crops this year will be larger than in any year except 1918 and 1949. Although the indicated output is larger ilian last year, it will be less evenly distributed because of heavy losses—particularly in feed supplies for meat ami dairy -animals—In Southern states. j The latter area will need to ship; in more feed than usual if it is i to avert a serious setback in the production ot meat, dairy and' poultry products in' a land once i ruled by cotton. j Elsewhere, there appears to be i sufficient corn, outs, hay and other ! teed materials to foster a further expansion in production of beef, pork, milk, eggs and poultry. The nation is harvesting its second largest wheat crop of record— a crop far in excess of expected needs. Only in the case of potatoes and sweet potatoes are supplies likely lo become tight before new crops are harvested in 1953. Meanwhile, the department moved to provide financial aid to more financially distressed fann- ers in drought areas. It put all New Hampshire. 10 additional counties in Oklahoma and seven In Illinois in the "disaster" classification. -, Farmers in such areas may obtain loans from the department's Fanners' Home Administration to carry on operations. Only those who have suffered substantial losses from (he drought and who are unable to obtain credit elsewhere will be eligible for aid. 'The department previously had designated all of Maine, Massachusetts, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas, and parts of Missouri as drought disaster areas. Should weather conditions be more favorable during (he rest of the season, drought-affected states might well achieve a degree of recovery. The department said rnms early this month have tended to break the drought and should revive pastures and encourage farmers to plant late forage crops for fall grazing and winter hay. Winter wheat and rice are the only crops for which record outturns are now expected. Bui the production of corn, all wheat, cotton, soybeans, tobacco, sugarcane hops, grapes, cherries nnd plums will be larger than average. Below average crops include oats barl l><*ts, and most fruits Bui , are — of ucts Czech Refugee Relates Story Of Escape from Red Prison MUNICH. Germany (if,— A Czecli refugee said yesterday John Hvasta escaped ivitli him and four other prisoners last Jan. 2 from a Czech prison where Hvasta. an American, was serving a 10-year sentence as a spy. The refugee's story supported an official Czech announcement of Aug. 8 that Hvasta escaped Jan. 2 and that his whereabouts since are unknown. Tiie story of the escape was told in an interview by Pnroslav Burec 30. Burec said "four prominent, po- pitical prisoners" fled at the same time as himself and Hvasta. but he did not name them. He identified the prison as one at Lconoldov, 30 miles northeast, of Bratislava, where only prominent prisoners of those considered especially dangerous were held. By Burec's account: The six fugitives slipped out. unnoticed by guards, late in the afternoon. They parted into two groups of three at a river two miles away. Hvasta went one way,! while Burec went another. They planned to meet again, but never) were able to locate each other thereafter. [ Burec expressed confidence, however, lhat Hvast.i has not been shot or recaptured and said he probably was hiding in some small village. Burec succeeded lu making his way across the heavily guarded Czech border into West Germany Hvasta, 25, of Hillside N J ' was arrested by Czech secret no- ice in October. 1018, and the following May was sentenced to three years in prison on charrcc of PS pionacc. " After an appeal, a second trial in April 1950. increased Hvasta's sentence to 10 years. U. S.
