has asked Congress to re-consid-

has been no action.

Tens of thousands of Texans

their hearts forevermore. But

she may be allowed to administer
the colonies under United Nations
trusteeship. Russia would like a
mandate over some part which
would give her a base on the Med-
iterranean a desire which finds
no virtue in the eyes of the West-
ern Allies. Egypt yearns for a
slice of Libya, and Britain has
a decided interest in the famous
town of Tobruk on the Libyan
coast, because this port and the
great island of Crete to the north
form a saddle across the east-
>vest thoroughfare of the Medit-
erranean. Then Emperor Haille
Selassie of Ethiopia wants neigh-
boring Eritrea, or part of it.
Kenussi Have Claim
One of the strongest and most
interesting claims comes from the
Senussi, natives of Libyan Ciren-
aica, which adjoins Egypt and
within which lies Tobruk. During
the war Britain promised the
Grand Senussi, the princely per-
sonage who is leader of the Sen-
ussi, that his country should have
independence, and one would ex-
pect this pledge to be honored,
with Britain or America perhaps
holding a trusteeship until the
Senussi are capable of handling
their own affairs.
Failure to carry out this
promise might result in ser-
ious trouble, for the Senussi
are a liberty loving people
who are quite willing to fight
for their Independence.
THE NATION TODAY
That was in 1945. All in all,
the government asked farmers
that year to cut down on potato
growing. They did, by 100,000
But 1946 was an unusually good
| year for potatoes.and, in spite of
; the cut in acreage, the crop was
i a record.
Once more the government step-
ped in. It bought up 87,000,000
surplus bushels of potatoes and,
in the end, lost about $80,000,000
on the deal.
It got rid of 65,000,000 surplus
bushels this way:
At very low prices it sold some
, to alcohol plants and starch man-
, ufacturcrs. Some went as lives-
tock feed. More went to the gov-
ernment’s school lunch program.
Seed Shipped Abroad
And about 10,500.000 bushels,
a lot of thqm as seed, went a-
1 broad to Germany, Italy, China,
Korea, and other countries.
!, After all that, the government
| still had 22,000,000 of the 87,-
bushels on its

Washington. May 29 - (AP) -
Millions of people ‘starve abroad
but here the government destroys
carloads of potatoes. Why?
Just too many potatoes. Many
of them, for various reasons,
can’t be shipped abroad. Why too
That’s this story:
During the war Congress pass-
ed a law telling the agriculture
department to encourage farmers
to grow potatoes.
It was clear that, If they grew
too many, the price would go
Better too many than not enough.
Government Bought Surplus
So, to keep potato prices up and
save the farmers from losses, Con-
gress told the government to buy
up surplus potatoes.
The real trouble with this plan
started when the war ended and
the Army, for one, began cancel-
li'.ig its potato orders.
To save the farmers, the gov-
ernment stepped in and bought

Why couldn't those 22,000,000
bushels have been shipped abroad

ture department explains it this
