His body was riddled wilh bullets and the corpse hung from a lamp post shortly after he burst into Monje's office with the announcement that he was going to kill Ihe president. , The mob which killed Oblilas also broke into the La Paz jail and lynched two of the president's po- litcal e n q Hi i e<; i— ;Maj;.

Greece long has been John Bull's key outpost on the edge of the Balkan peninsula.

The question" Js whether Moscow vill concede John Bull his place in "recce, or will insist on including within Russia's sphere. There ve have in miniature the mpmcn- ous problem which has divided 11 Europe into two camps: How ar does Russia intend to go in its -xpansionV He who knows the answer to hat also knows whelhcr anolher vorld war is likely. Bui lo return io our muttons: Greece is in the throes of civil var between supporters of ihc British-basked king and leftisl elc- Ticnls, including many Communists The main fighting is in the north among Ihc mountains along the Al- oanian and Yugoslav borders.

Greek government charges thai communistic elements from has said guardedly 'thai Brilish forces wouldn't-be used''unless the Greek government specifically rc- quoslcd aid, and lhal ihc Iroops could be called upon to act only "in a lasl resort." The sum and substance of al' Ihis, of course, is Ihat the Balkan peninsula is ihe school-yard, and Russia and Brilain are Iwo brawny lads who arc eyeing each other across a line which has been drawn between them. If one of Ihcm should slop across lhal line, Ihe fighl would be one. The trouble wilh Ihis illustration is lhal a bailie in a schoolyard would be wilh fisls. An armed clash between Russia and Brilain would mean another global conflict which would make previous world- wars look indeed liked school-yard combat. Tnc return of King George to his throne certainly isn't likely lo case tne situation. It really means Ihc consolidalion of Ihe Royalily force to carry on the batlle against ihe Red attempt to overthrow the monarchy. The immediate threat is lhal Ihc civil war might develop inlo \w-~- lillics between Greece and the Yugoslav-Albanian leflisl government. One need nol dilate on such a contingency to demontralc the .errific threat which it would establish to world peace. Could Britain and Russia keep themselves'clear of such a Balkan upheaval? Well, we can be sure thai neither of them want war, and thai both would try to avoid it at all cosl.

Thompson said Ihe queslion of supply was the factor the deconlrol board would use in determining decontrol when it receives the peti- lion. He said the board would try lo ascertain how many cattle were going into the feed lots and how soon such catlle would be moved to market. • ' • . Thompson conceded there was growing criticism; of., the board's Aug. 20"decision 'to restore meal ceilings. But he said the board did not regret its decision. "If Ihe board had Ihe same sel of facls before it as it did on Aug. 20, . and if we had the same law under which to operate, the board would have no olher alternative," [he declared. I He said he-doubted that "anyone I could foresee that owners of callle on the hoof would not move their livestock lo market,' This withholding, he says, is responsible lor Ihe current shortage. Meanwhile, olher development! on the meat situation were: 1. OP A announced that restaurant meat prices will be raisec i next week, but did not disclose how much.

These farmers and they alone hold Die power lo boosl supplies of meal in Ihc near future. They are the only livestock producers who have any appreciable number of animals ready for slaughter. Hogs won't be available in any volume before early December, and grain-fallened cattle won't be icad.y for market in any si/cable numbers before laic winter. OB the other hand, farmers who grow and fallen cattle on grass have near-record herds. Some of their stock, however, is lean and underweight and unfit for sluugh- ler.
