rOUR THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 1939. Europe Counts Its Bushels Before War Is Hatched And This Year The Wheat Crop May Be Bigger Than Usual By WILLIAM McGAFFIN AP Feature Service Writer LONDON, Aug. 14 (£>).—Today's armies have the deadliest weapons jii history—as effective one time of year-as another. But the men who use them must eat. That's one big reason why expert strategists pick mid-August—when the wheat crop will' be in hand throughout most of Europe—as the time when a new crisis; if one is coming, is likely to develop. For after the harvest is gathered, the nations' breadbaskets ar.e replenished and'ithe farmers are'free to fight. This is still a vital item despite the fact that every government that can manage is laying in huge "security stocks." Barring last minute complications 3 it looks like an average or better yield in most of Europe this year. What does that.mean? In England, where an average crop 'of about 50 million bushels is expected, it means importing four- fifths of her domestic needs. That is why it is imperative for Britain to retain mastery 'of the seas. Nazit Work Fast In Germany, prospects of a good average return assure her of nearly enough wheat to feed the populations of the original Reich and of the new additions. Germany can get what additional she needs easily so long as she maintains her grip in the Danube basin. Right now the time element is her principal preoccupation. Hampered by an acute labor shortage in her anxiety to gather the harvest as quickly as possible, she has pressed into service thousands of the Hitler youth and foreign workmen. She has brought 37,000 farm 'hands from Italy, 15,000 from Yugoslavia, 12,000 from Hungary, 40,000 from Slovakia. Italy, according to the official estimate of 294 million bushels, is winning her "Battle of Wheat" for self-sufficiency and won't need to import any wheat unless she wishes to increase her reserve. The trade, however, puts 280 million bushels as a "nearer right" figure. France should have a surplus, although private forecasts of 294 million bushels would mean scarcely better than an average year. The surplus comes from 70-odd million bushels left over from last year's bumper crop and from the 1939 North African yield of 102 million bushels—40 per cent above last year's.

German Women March Out to Help Harvest The Grain political weapon as well as the staff of life. England, Germany and Italy, for example, bought heavily of Rumania's bumper crop last year. England's aim was to prevent the Nazis from making an "economic prisoner" of Rumania. Germany, too, is stretching her supply by mixing 10 per cent rye and potato flour with the wheat Russia, as usual, is a question mark. It is uncertain whether she has any war reserve or whether this year's crop will provide for domestic requirements as an ordinary crop does in Russia. The winter wheat was fairly good but constitutes only 40 per cent of Russia's production. The spring wheat is thought to have been damaged by the June hot spell. As for the rest of Europe: Poland expects a good yield of rye, her big crop, sufficient for domestic con- sumption; Rumania probably will have 30 million bushels of wheat to export of an estimated yield of 144 million; Hungary will have 18 of 105 million; Bulgaria and Yugoslavia are slated for an average return sufficient for their own needs; and Spain has contracted for approximately 12 million bushels from the Argentine to compensate for a 20 per cent below average crop as a consequence of the war.

Two cars caught fire, adding to the terror of those packed in the six-car train. Speeding into the station, the express struck an apparently faulty switch 200 feet from the switch tower. The front wheel- truck of the first car safely passed the switch, but the rear truck shot over to an entirely separate pair of rails. Half-askew, while the front truck ahead on the express rails and back truck switched over to the local- line rails followed by the rest of the train, the express slid along 200 feet and tken struck the brick switch tower. The tower was demolished, raining bricks and mortar onto the street below. Two women were taken to a hospital where they were reported seriously injured. Police immediately blocked off the scene. Five ambulances and four police emergency trucks were rushed to the vicinity. Manhattan police headquarters said first reports showed 20 persons had been injured.
