The United Nations agency suggested that a granary program be operated bv a world food board with authority to bviy and sell commodities for the purpose of stabl lizlng supplies and prices. The recommendations will be laid before FAQ'S second annua conference to open in Copenhagen September 2. - . • The food board would have au thority also to dispose of surpluses to needy countries on cutback terms. "The objective of the board's operations," FAO said in a 12 page report, "would be to ensure that sufficient. food is produced and distributed to bring th« con sumption of all people 'up to i health standard^ The need for ad dlllonal foods is so great thai if human requirements could b translated into c.conomic demani there would be no question of sur pluses of the basic foods." FAO suggested thai Ihe propostx world food board operate throUg commodity committees with th power to hold stocks of the mbs important commodities. It would announce minimum an maximum prices and would bu and sell from its stock when th world price exceeded Ihe minimum The board would be financed b a revolving fund, contributed b member nations of FAO. "It may seem premature to put forward such an ambitious proposal," FAO said, "but we are living in a world which is being driven, so fast by the advance of science and bold measures arc required if we arc to resolve the tremendous ; social • and economic problems that face all countries."

'• ' -. • • • '•-• . !; ?''C '•--' j '."-ii-'ti .•& 0(V< K; For eight long years I have fought Lyle Brown's battles in'Hempstead(£o,unty r ,; being the only lawyer in Hope for him. The people will remember thatieighhyears,,: ago he was a candidate for Prosecuting Attorney and was defeated by Dick Huiejof Arkadelphia. During said period Of time those who are now his main sponsors and supporters were going about Hempstead County telling the people* he was not fit to be Prosecuiting Attorney. Four years ago when he was elected Prosecuting Attorney, at the solicition of Judge E. F. McFaddin and me, Mr. Brown moved to Hope and requested me, the only lawyer in Hope who actively supported him, to accept the -posi^n of Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, which position (accepted. At to how well I served in said capacity I shall not assume the province of determining, but will say that his record as Prosecuiting Attorney in Hempstead County is better than his record in any other county in the district. The first of January this year I Was informed that Mr. Brown would run for Circuit Judge against Judge Bush. I immediately discussed the:matter with hjmpnd • he stated to me that Judge Bush was one of the best friends-he had in. thei'State; that he was a guest in Judge Bush's horn 3 in Texarkaha at thei time'betookjthe-Bar examination, which was conducted by Bert Larey, the 'same Bert Larey" t that ;Mr. ; Brown now apparently condemns for supporting Judge Bush, and that;Judge^Bush had been a friend to him in many ways and that he wo'uldn't think of running against him. At intervals of about two weeks I would hear the report again that Mr. Brown would run against Judge Bush, each time I discussed it With him and he told me he was not a candidate. About the first of April I heard the report again and asked him and he stated to me, K that if, thirty days ago, a man had told him he would run for Circuit Judge he would have thought the man was crazy, and reminded me that he had told me that he was not a candidate, but stated that he had ' changed his mind and was running. I at that time informed him that I would support Judge Bush, and soon after I resigned as Deputy Prosecuiting Attorney. Mr. Brown is considerate'enough to admit that it is still the privilege of any;individual or group to vote as they please in a Democratic County. Inasmuch, Mr. Brown, as you have seen fit to point me out, from among Judge Bush's many supporters in this county, as his manager, it seems that it would be > in order and proper for me to offer a :surmise : as to those managing your interests, and apparently your main sponsors and supporters are certain lawyers whose names are well known and whose efforts; eight years ago. in behalf of Dick Huie for Prosecuting Attorney, and four years ago- in behalf of Pat .Robinson are too'well •remembered to require further mention and probably a few vyho )vere" Withiryvmilitary ag.e and eligible for Military Service/with whom youseerri to have some'things in common, Who for some reason better known to themselves we re!; not in Military Service but remained at home while about 2500 men frorn Hempstedd ^County donned the colors and risked their all ; to perpetuate the greatest Democracy on (earth. s You refer to me. Mr. Brown,, as being a veteran of many political battles and you also talk about crushing a political machine,^ NO, Mr. Brown, I do ^not have, or belong to, a political machine, the monled interests are all on your side. You have the machine in Hope, But I do have lots of FRIENDS in Hempstead County who have stuck with me through thick and thin and they are sticking now. I am supporting Judge Bush for Circuit Judge, ' . BECAUSE, he is learned in the law, has had much experience as a Judge, and I am not alone in thinking that this better qualifies a lawyer to be Judge. The Federal Government recognizes that age and experience aids and helps a Judge to be a better Judge and, therefore, appoints Federal Judges for life. BECAUSE, he has been an efficient and fair Judge, and when a rhan came before his court whether rich or poor, great or small was and could-be assured that he would get a fair and impartial hearing in accordance with the laws of [the land. But you say, Mr. Brown, that Judge Bush has decided many damageosuitsuwfiere , big judgments have been rendered for the plaintiff and some *of'these (judgments have been reversed by the Supreme Court. If you will read-those <case.s; carefully, Mr. Brown, you will find in all those cases that were reversed, Judge Bush has erred on the side of the poor and weak and not on the side of corporations and special interests. I happen to remember the case of FOOKS vs. WILLIAMS etal reported in 168 SW2d page 193 in which I believe you were the attorney for. the plaintiff, Mr: Brown, and which was a damage suit. Judge Bush was wrong in ruling for you in that case and you obtained a judgment for $6,000.00, .and the Supreme Court said you didn't have a case and reversed and dismissed it. Judge Bush w<3s all right then, and notwithstanding you have been in his court all these years he remainedlall right until certain interests decided they wanted you for Judge, then, in your opinion, he became a bad Judge. BECAUSE, he has reduced the expenses of the Circuit Courts,of Hempstead County from $11,500.00 per year, which was the cost of the CircuitiQ^urtSv.the year before he was elected, to $5,000.00 a year, or approximately' $75;OQQ.Q0i ! $ince he has been Judge. The annual appropriation for Circuit Cpurts now being $5,000.00 a year.. BECAUSE, he has never turned down an old friend-in an: effort;to .curry favor with those who have consistently fought him. i 1 These are the reasons why I am supporting Judge Bush, think them over and see if you don't agree with me that they are good and that he should be reflected.

MARTIN Washington, Aug. 10 — (/P)— A proposal that an inlorn-alional ag- rticulture .adjustment, ntimlnlstray .ion be set up to protect the world's farmers againsl fulure do^cessions has been advanced many :lmes 'during Ihe past ten years. The nalions of Ihe world will be given nexl rrionlh to say for Ihe firsl lime whether they favor the proposal. A bushy-browed Scot, Sir John Boyd Orr. will advance the proposal at tho second annual conference of the food and agriculture organization of the United Nations scheduled lo open al .Copenhagen Sept. 2 with delegates from more than 40 nations prcsenl. Sir John is Ihe head of the FAO He carries Ihe lille of director- general. He Is one of the world's foromdsl aulhorilies on human nu Irilion. He likewise is a successful farmer. II may seem od dlo many thai Sir John would bring up the matter of a possible agricultural de prcssion at a period when prices of many commodilies are al rec ord levels and supplies are fai shorl of demand. Agreeing lhal il may seem pre malure lo pul forward such ar ambilious proposal, the director general says we are living in a Star to Hold Election Party for Runoff Primary Tuesday Night; Screen, Loud-Speaker The same setup that drew a crowd estimated between 3,000 and 4,000 persons on South Walnut street July 30; will be observed by The Star Tuesday night, August 13, for the Runoff Primary. Election returns, precinct by precinct, will be fldshed on the screen for Hempstead county races; the newspaper will gather all county returns for district races; and the Associated Press will report by wire ori the progress of state candidates. Music will be furnished by a loud-speaker system from Cobb-Tooley Radio company. Election officials at all Hempstead. county boxes are again asked to co-operate by : having someone telephone or.bring the newspaper the results of their precinct as soon as counted. Gall Hope 768, collect. No election information can be given out over the telephone Tuesday night, as all facilities are needed to compile the tabulation. The public's co-operation will be appreciated. '••'.'.. (API—M*ant AwoclatW Pt*t» (NEAt-*-M«afto Newsooexf EnttfbHM Aw'fl.

Pointing out that farming -is an activity which mus tbe planned two or three years in advance, Sir John says steps should be taken now to deal with surpluses of some farm products which may develop within a year or so. The plan which Sir John will lay before the Copenhagen meeting embodies, in a general way, the principles of th American AAA "ever- normal granary" program and the pre-war food stamp program. More than half the world's population subsists in normal times on diets insufficient to • maintain normal health, allow . normal growth of children, or furnish enough energy for normal work.
