ivji!m;ito)i i ommi Food Shipments Will Help Write the Peace in Europe ByBAUKHAGE Ntv Analytt and Commentator, M . t. in-.,,,, .S., WNTJ Service, 1611 Eye Street, N.W Washington, P. C. Since Good Friday, when you beard President and in e-Presl-dent (peeking ob the fame radio program, one Id the White Houie, the other across the Atlantic in Egypt, you bavt read and beard many other appeal to preparation prepara-tion for a drive which win start shortly to get food to five hundred million mil-lion starving men. women and children chil-dren In Europe and Asia. The voluntary effort to cut down food consumption simply hain't worked. It Isn't that the people art unwilling. un-willing. tt that there was no immediate im-mediate way to cut down on our eating which seemed practical. And so a practical means of getting food In cans Is to be tried, and its success will depend on the local vol unteer organization in your community. commu-nity. The' foods needed art milk (condensed, evaporated or dried), meat, flh, peanut butter, baby foods, baked beans, juices, stews, Soups, honey, vegetables. I know that you have beard this before in detail- I hope you will bear It again, with further details, but perhaps you don't realize what 7011 ana uie untiea owiei can f es la return for the food we send out. - and what we may loie it starvation becomes widespread. The whole question Is pointed up te a not-too-prominently displayed dispatch from Moscow to which an official called my attention last week, It was statement made by . corrcsponaeni ot we ooviei paper Izvestla, who bad been touring the American sone in Germany, ' "The food stuff difficulties which ' forced lowering of rations (In the American sone), the correspondent wrote, "are explained, in my view, not so much by the absence of productive pro-ductive districts as by a lack of - .1 -J:tiu...f . . i 1 .

Hunger Vted at Political Weapon This criticism, which I think In vestigation will prove to be exceedingly exceed-ingly biased and unfair, reveals bow food, or the lack of it, la serving and can serve as a weapon to stir up discontent and to bring the west era countries into disrepute and disfavor. dis-favor.

The effects are the same everywhere, and Germany nerves as an excellent example of . the political effects of a good shortage. short-age. There, the American authorities authori-ties can accurately check on what is going on since the military government gov-ernment is so closely tied in to every ev-ery phase of the dally lives of the 1 people. .

" We are about to sit down at the peace table with Italy. Russia prob ably will not be present. But the food that Italy does not have may affect the validity of that peace treaty. j. r . A revealing comment on how this works was appended to a report made shortly after the British were forced to drop to a 1.000-calorie : Scale and coal production dropped approximately 20 per cent This was the comment: , "Heavy workers are dropping at their work and food riots have already al-ready taken place. If this ration is not raised soon, there will be no coal; without coal there will be no transportation; without coal and transportation, there will be ho processing of food from indigenous resources. ... "The fact that we now have to go back on our pledged word to the German people will seriously fan-nair fan-nair our nreitlee and the cnnflifom-a of the German people in the pledged word of our officials. This will give to those who oppose our economic system the best weapon they nave over received. As fast as possible. we are losing an the advantages gained by the success of arms. We are losing the peace much faster than at the close of World War I The first great blow has been the food muddle. Others will pile up like snowball, , . . "It appears that wa win have to reduce the already Inadequate ration ra-tion for Berlin. This, of course, will give the Russians a strong talking point against the westers powers when we cannot afford to sustain the 1.550-calorie ration for the normal consumer." And so the path of our friend, the reporter from Izvestla, crosses that of the American official. Clearly we set the different segments of the picture which opponents of western democracy , have sketched in no faint strokes across the troubled world. Yes, indeed, food win write the peacel Polh Show U.S. Ready to Sacrifice 'It is interesting to note that the American people are perfectly will ing to make sacrifices to send food to Europe, Two .surveys were made by the University of Denver National Research center, one of which showed that 68 per cent of those: interviewed indicated . their wish to resume rationing if necessary neces-sary in order. to tend critical tood abroad. Another survey by the same Institution In-stitution showed that mora than a third of the people (33 per cent) believed be-lieved that we? should send food to Germsny as a gift if she could not pay us for it , - I believe' that If a similar poll were taken in regard to feeding Japan, the results would be approximately the same. see Garden Grow On Sky$eraper$ People bavt their roots in the soil even when they live 20 stories above asphalt pavements, I bad that brought forcibly to mind as I leaned over the wall of a wide terrace of a penthouse garden high above Park avenue, New York.

Even then the coun-try coun-try remained unexplored until 1663 when Charles II chartered the same territory to eight of his loyal friends.

From across the sea and from other American colonies they csme. until there were Cavaliers, Puritans. French Huguenots, Irish. Dutch and Germans. Many Quakers arrived early, and one of them, John Arch-lade, Arch-lade, served as governor of' the province. Later more than a thousand thou-sand suffering Acsdians found a refuge ref-uge and a home. Added to all these were the Negroes, bringing an unsuspected un-suspected gift of rhythm, and furnishing fur-nishing the sinews for the struggle to build" a new land, . . Like an colonists they brought with them old hatreds and differences differ-ences of class and creed. Some came for riches, some for adventure, adven-ture, others sought relief from religious re-ligious persecution. They quarreled often among themselves, but stood together against any common enemy. They repulsed the attacking Indians and they fought off pirates from the : coast In 1718 at Charleston. 49 pirates swung from the gallows In one month, with 22 of them dangling there one day. - They fought for the right of local self-government They overthrew the proprietary government and became be-came a royal province under the klng't charter.

Through all the years, in massacre massa-cre and war, through storm and fire, despite earthquake and pestilence, pesti-lence, the people of South Carolina struggled on. They explored the wilderness wil-derness and located new towns and more plantations. They built roads through forests and swamps, and threw bridges across rivers and streams. They built houses of "tab by" a composition of crushed oys ter shell and of thick hardwood logs. They spread out from the Low country to the Up country. They built tor beauty and utility and discovered the dignity of life.

They have drawn character from the land itself, and courage and integrity integ-rity from their labors.

Can Produce the Highest Quality Silk A movement was started In the United States about 1830 to produce silk. Proper varieties of silkworms were not available and the industry tailed It has not been determined that California has a more suitable climate cli-mate than Japan for silkworm culture, being able to raise three crops a year, contrasted with Japan's Ja-pan's one, and at the same time produce a better quality silk. In Texas sericulture has become a community project At Mineral Wells, a fund to develop the Texas silk culture was oversubscribed. There are other states in the South, East and West where silk culture can be made to produce satisfactory satisfac-tory returns. Improved Machinery Power Spray , Pi j ! o.
