Maiu Street Phoun
Little Rock, Ark., Jan. 29 (Jl—
A young Texas matron and her
mother had a tearful, happy re-
union at Little Rock.
They hadn’t seen each other in
21 years, and the meeting climax-
ed a persistent search by the Tex-
as woman — 28 year old Mrs.
Josephine Loflin of Pasadena.
The young womun also was re-
united with her three sisters. Ironi-
cally, she had been living within
60 miles of one of them — Mrs.
Mary Irene Kesel, age 26, of Gal-
Another sister lives in Glen-
wood, Arkansas, and the third lives
The mother, Mrs. Eva May Fcr-
ri of Little Rock, hadn’t seen her
daughter, Josephine, since Jose-
phine was seven years old.
The family was divided in 1931
when Mrs. Ferri and her husband
separated in St. Louis. Mrs. Ferri
raised three daughters while
Charles Ferri, of Louisiana, took
Josephine with him.
The daughter, Josephine, began
in earnest at the age of 16 to lo-
cate her mother. But all the ef-
forts through the years were fu-
tile. Then, three weeks ago, the
Pasadena woman remembered
from her childhood that her grand-
mother once bought a home at
Little Rock. So she wrote to the
city clerk in Little Rock, got the
address of her grandmother, and
wrote. It wasn’t long until a
telegram came hack, giving the
address of her three sisters and
confirming that her mother lived
in Little Rook. Mrs. Loflin quick-
ly went to Galveston to see her
sister, and now she’s been reunited
with her mother at Little Rock,
for the first time in 21 years.
to get all the coffee they could at
the current, lower prices. The re-
sult: The heavy bidding sent the
price of green coffee skyrocketing.
Now, these high prices are on
coffee in American stores, as that
coffee comes to the retail market
There have been rumors of a
corner on the market of green
coffee in Brazil. It would be hard
to prove it one way or the other.
But it may be pointed out that the
government of Brazil depends on
coffee to get dollars to buy badly
needed machinery and the like
in the United States. It encoura-
ges the Industry at home, and dis-
courages anything that might hurt
its earning power.
And what’s the outlook for next
Well, Sao Paulo expects about
nine million bags of coffee next
year. That’s well ‘below normal.
-Dm loss of those half million trees
to the frost will be felt for four
or five years to come.
Grantland Rice wrote a sequel
to Ernest Thayer's "Casey at the
Bat.” Rice concluded:
“And somewhere over blighted
loves there hangs a heavy pall;
But Mudville hearts are happy
now—for Casey hit the ball.”
The prospects of such a happy
sequel to the coffee shortage is
considered somewhat remote, un-
less a lot of people start drinking
less of it.

Time may have been when the
most important thing in Mudville
was for Casey to hit the ball. But
more recently, it appears, thoughts
have turned to empty mugs and
yawning pots and the missing a-
romn of coffee.
Today’s $64 question — what
happened to our coffee? *
You can-gvt-twe quick-answers:
One, that frost last July 4thTThe
In a way, they’re both right.
But it’s not the whole answer.
Ever since the end of World
War 2, the demand for coffee has
been rising. Americans have been
drinking more and more coffee.
Moreover, many Europeans who
used to drink tea or cocoa have
developed a taste for coffee. They
began to import it from the areas
which produce coffee for the Unit-
Naturally, the producers were
anxious to grow more coffee as
the market got bigger. But there
was one hitch. It takes five years
for the planted tree to produce
its first crop. A lot of Brazilian
farmers could still remember back
in the 1930's when American cof-
fee consumption dropped off, and
the bottom fell out of the coffee
market. And in Brazil, they had
to burn coffee to get rid of it.
Get Up Courage
•So, it was a year or so before
the producers got up the courage
to expanding in a big way. The
first result* of that expansion will
be felt next year.
But last July 4, a heavy, unsea-
sonai frost hit a big part of the
coffee-producing region. In the
biggost eoffee-produccr, Brazil,
483 million trees were lost That
might be translated into four and
a half million bags of green cof-
In the main coffee state of Bra-
zil, Sao Paulo, two and a half mil-
lion bags of coffee were lost. That
meant only eight million bags for
export, instead of the expected 10
and a half million hogs.
Things could have been worse.
The harvesting of coffee begins
in April and continues until a-
bout September. So by July 4, a
considerable part of the crop was

But the frost sent chills dot^r
the spines of a lot of eoffee mer-
chants. They could see lean years
ahead, with heavy bidding for the
smaller supply of coffee. That

ator McCarthy said Thursday
night that his .Senate Investiga-

complaints that government offic-
ials failed to send enough sur-

to other sub-committee members,
McCarthy said his staff is mak-
ing a preliminary check.
Said the Senator: "I frankly
feel that this needs a thorough
and complete airing.”
In passing the mutual security
appropriations act last year, Con-

million and 250 million dollars
be used to purchase surplus
