Fat Cows, Starving People In the long run there can be little doubt of the world's ability to feed itself: 55 per cent of the developing world's arable land is not even under cultivation, and that which is still produces extremely low crop yields. An even safer guarantee is that a man can survive healthily on 500 pounds of wheat or grain eaten a year: hundreds of millions do. And yet one-third of the world's population uses two-thirds of its grain, feeding most of it to livestock. The average American eats less grain directly than the Indian or the Mexican and yet he needs to grow a ton of grain to feed the animals to provide him with meat — and, at times, heart attacks. This year or next there is likely to be widespread famine in some areas of the world for the first time. Some countries will pay more money for the grain to keep their livestock alive than others will be able to afford for their starving populations. In contrast to the 1960s, there will not be the reserves available to rescue the poor without hurting the livestock of the rich. It is an ugly equation. The United Nations food conference in Rome, called by Henry Kissinger, will try to find an answer. The United Nations has discredited itself in the past by crying wolf too often, forever forecasting famine. for the drought now devastating the southern Sahara for the third successive year, there has been little sustained famine in the world in the last 20 years, except that caused by war. If things go well, the task of the United Nations will be to prevent world reserves of grain running so dangerously low again. Any grandiose scheme for an expensive international grain reserve is certain to fail. But the Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome has a suitably modest plan by which each' exporting nation woul'd'undertake to hold its own stocks to a minimum level. 4-H News HALBUR - The Halbur Happy Lassies 4-H Club met May 13 in the school auditorium.

DES MOINES. Iowa (AH)— Reed Brothers Inc. of Winterset has been awarded damages of $179,970 by a federal court jury in a judgment against the Monsanto Co. for violating antitrust laws. Court officials said the jury of three men and five women actually returned a verdict of $59,990*04 Friday but since it was an antitrust action, the damages are trebled. The Reeds contended that Monsanto, headquartered at St. Louis. Mo., violated antitrust laws by restricting the Reed firm's sales territory as a distributor of pesticides and herbicides. The firm, owned by three Reed brothers, claimed the firm was dropped by Monsanto because it failed to comply with Monsanto restrictions and because it hired a former Monsanto salesman. Monsanto was,described in the Reed suit as one of the largest manufacturers of agricultural chemicals in the nation.

We grateful heirs can say amen to their prayer. Anxious in a time of violence and discord, we may reflect that our forefathers carried their firearms with them into the fields. Violence and fear are with us yet. So too is the Lord's bounty. Working together in peace we can multiply His gifts. For surely non-violence is a realizable goal. Individuals and communities have achieved it. Perhaps one day nations will. Get together with your family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers to discuss the problems of violence and how you can work together to help solve them.
