At the start it was almost a foregone conclusion that the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox would, repeat and bookmakers, here and in other major league cities, listed them as odds-on favorites. Now neither team is top-choice among .the bookies, but the fog is so thick on the baseball horizon that there is little agreement as to which teams should succeed the Cards and Red Sox as favorites. One New. Jersey bookmaker said he was now quoting the Chicago Cubs, Boston Braves and Brooklyn Dodgers at 2 to 1 and the Cardinals "a little behind at 11 to 5." The fact that the Cards are mow: than a little behind in the pennant campaign in dead last place, didn't concern him too much, because he said "St. Louis is a notoriously slow starter.' 'He figured the Detroit Tigers as 9 to 5 favorite in the American with the Red Sox at 2 to 1 and the Now York Yankees and Cleveland Indians at 4 ;to 1. About one-third of U.

Apropos of this general position, the U. S. Slate department the other day published a statement made by Herbert Hoover .to he supreme council ql' the allied and associated powers just after the end of the L''irst World War. It was an analysis which might have been made Cor the present occasion. Hoover —then relief director — declared lhat the western hemisphere couldn't meet Europe's economic needs indefinitely. "The populations of Europe," he said, "must be brought to a reali- sation that productivity must be instantly increased. No economic policy will bring food to those stomachs or fuel to thos ohcarths that does not secure the maximum production." Inlcris'U'ication of productivity Is' far ' more necessary now than it was after the last war, because the destruction and disorder arc so much greater. And of course because of this greater destruction there are fewer means of production. Thus Europe is traveling a vicious circle. It can only be rescued by removing the primary cause, that is, by restoring Germany to economic health. That is up to the fojr great powers—America, Russia, Britain, and France—and it can be done without abandoning the Allied pledge to render the Reich impotent militarily. It must be done quickly, and if any power stands in the way of carrying this out, it will be for ulterior purposes.

DeGasperi Asked to Form Government Rome, May 14— (UP)— The Communist party and left-wing socialists called today for another Italian government headed by Alcide Do G-'asperi, virtually assuring another coalition cabinet. Umberto Tcracini, the Communist president of the assembly, as t after talking with President Enrico ! do Nicola, "the Communit party thinks the Christian Democrats should be assigned the formation of a new government." De Gasped' s coalition of his ow'n Christian Democrats, Socialists, and Communists resigned yesterday in a dispute over the prime min islers desire to broaden it by including more right-wing elements. The greatest question .appeared fo be what representation the extreme left and the right would have in a new government. As leader, of the largest party, De Gasperi' was to receive a mandate from De Nicola to form a new government. There was .'littlp; likelihood that De Gasperi. woiild; refuse a new bid to the prime minister's office. It was considered likqly that he w'ould succeed in -forming ..a., n.ew. government.

The CAA has promised to back any pros.a- cution brought about by state police. ' . It was announced that the program was instigated because the number of airplanes registered in Arkansas had increased from 200 in 1941 to 1,200 this year — in addi- lion to commercial craft. Stale police were authorized to police the airways in 1941, but Director Jack Poror said the department did not have sufficient funds to undertake the additional activity until this year.

Our net profit duii'mg: the past five years ha.s ; averaged only; ^; •' about 1 cent, on each' dollar of sales. If we wfcre* tb "operate burl business without any profit at all, this 1 cent would amount to a saving of less than 4 cents a day on the entire food bill of -the average American family. »..« J We sincerely believe that A^tP has the lowest cost of distribution of any retail business in the world. When you spend $1.00 in an A&P store, you get 86 cents worth of food and only about 14 cents goes to meet all expenses — wages, taxes, rent, light, heat and the hundreds of other expenses incidental to the stocking and operating of a modern food store — including our very small profit. Obviously 'there is little "fat" in such" a price ~struc'fifr£ Oiir "dp;eratirigfcdsts"an'd profits 'are already, cut close to the bone. Merchants generally have reduced prices on many items on 'whicli they were overstocked. In recent weeks we have reduced prices on hundreds of such items. That is common' merchandising practice and has no relation to a general or permanent price reduction., While many food prices have already been lowered we must recognize tliat no substantial general reduction in retail food prices is possible until the cost of food to the retailer is reduced. r As any Housewife knows, A&P's business has been built on tlie policy of selling quality food at the lowest practical price every day. We pledge to our customers strict adherence to that policy. We will continue "to" lower, our prices as fast as reductions in costs to us and economies in pur operations permit.^ A&P STORES m •V?
