FLOW IS USED U. S. Changes From Heavy Exportion to Import Fol lowing Drought. By the Associated Press. Reduced to the smallest crops In 54 years by the drought and A. A. A. re strictions, the United States last year was changed from a heavy exporter to an importer of feed and foodstuffs. As a result of the smallest crops since 1880, prices rose to a point where other nations could ship to the United States, scale the high tariff walls and still make a profit. Quite a bit of food and feedstuffs, including wheat, were exported from the United States early in 1934. But with the drought came a sudden change In habits fixed over the gener ations when the rich Middle Western fields were the wheat and corn gran tries of the world. Trend Continues In 1935. The trend, officials said, had con tinued into 1935 and probably would go on until the price of food and feed declines. For the first time on record wheat Was imported from Prance in 1934. Total wheat imports from all coun tries during the latter half of 1934 totaled 1,231,000 bushels, as compared with the 175,000,000 bushels which the United States normally exported to foreign nations only a few years ago. The United States exported over 30,000,000 bushels of wheat last year. Virtually all of it, however, was shipped from the Pacific Northwest, where a surplus had accumulated and It was exported through what amont ed to a Government subsidy. Officials said the value of farm products exported in 1934 probably had shown a precipitate drop from 1933, when they amounted to only a little more than a half-billion dollars. Back in 1929 farm exports totaled $1,495,790,000. Import figures tell what happened in the year just ended. Since July 1, 1934, imports of cot tonseed cake totaled 34,728,580 pounds, compared with 4,174,775 pounds dur ing the entire five years preceding. Meal Imports 3,780,864. Cottonseed meal imports during the same period amounted to 3,780,864 pounds, as compared to 5,289,392 pounds during the entire five years, 1929-34. Cottonseed oil imported, 193.843 gallons, compared with only 25 gallons during the preceding five years. Last year American users imported 178,650,822 pounds of shelled corn from Mexico, Argentina and Man choukuo, quarantine restrictions be ing relaxed in some instances to per mit this flow. In past years sufficient broom corn was produced in the United States to supply practically all domestic needs. Since July 1, 1934, however, domestic manufacturers imported 27, 171 bales and 35,620 pounds of broom corn, in comparison with only 407 bales during the entire five years before. C0UGHLIN DEMANDS , HIGH WEALTH TAX Says Large Corporate and Private Holdings Must Be Made Submissive. By the Associated Press. DETROIT, February 25.—The Rev. Charles E. Coughlin declared yester day that the tax weapon would have to be brought into play against great private and corporate wealth in this country to safeguard private owner ship for the "little fellow." "I am firmly convinced." Dr. Cough lin declared, "that we must tax monopolies into submission if we wish to approach sanely the problem of preserving private ownership." Father Coughlin also touched upon monetary questions, denying that gold was ever in reality "the yardstick of value," and criticizing Senator Carter Glass for the latter's defense of the gold clause in contracts. "Senator Glass insinuates that we should hang our heads in shame," said Father Coughlin, "for even ap proaching the European debtors who have repudated their financial obli gations because Congress itself 'has ; repudiated.' so he says, 'the most sacred indebtedness which any na- j tion on earth ever incurred.' "These words," Father Coughlin | continued, "prove what we have long j suspected. Carter Glass is the cham- < pion exponent of financial gymnastics." | The speaker also came to the de fense of the $5,000,000,000 public works program, and assailed Senators who had advocated the payment of less than prevailing wages to P. W. A. labor. "By 1950," he predicted, "unless salutory laws are introduced, 70 per cent of all the corporate industrial ac tivities In the Nation will be carried on by 200 concerns."

P. Photo. HULL SEES END Says Policies Must of Ne cessity Be Those of Great Power. By the Associated Press. WINTER PARK. Fla , February 25. —Secretary of State Cordell Hull, speaking his "article" on the Ani mated Magazine, feature of Pounder's week at Rollins College, yesterday told the "subscribers" the Nation never again would "withdraw Into 'splendid isolation.'" The "enormous speeding up of trade &nd communications, under influence of technical discovery and advance ment, condemns to futility any en deavor to induce the Nation" to adopt such a policy, he said. "Our policies must of necessity be those of a so-called 'great power.' We cannot, even if we would, fall profoundly to affect International re lations; our choice is of the various ways of affecting them which are open to a Nation situated as we are. It would be hard to deny that we are so placed that we could, If that were our Intention, engage In a policy of imperialistic expansion and ag gression to the detriment of others. "The alternative course open to us | is to make our influence felt through a policy of political, economic and cultural co-operation to the advantage of all and In an atmosphere of trust and peace. The latter is our policy, a policy so accurately described by the President as that of a 'good neighbor.' "The 'good neighbor' policy meets the requirements of every reasonable test of history. It is In harmony with the great need of the modern world and with the particular needs of a modern United States in this modern world. "This Nation's peace proposals, tak en together with the provisions of the Kellogg-Briand pact, provide, I submit, the four pillars of a sound peace structure—first, the renuncia tion of- war as an instrument of na tional policy; second, a promise of non-aggression; third, consultation In the event of a threat to peace, and fourth, non-interference on our part with such measures of constraint as nay be brought against a deliberate violator of peace." $20,000 Narcotics Seized. SEATTLE, February 25 (if).—Cus toms agents yesterday arrested six nen, four of them Orientals, in a vaterfront raid and seized a speed >oat and narcotics valued at $20,000. tfelvin L. Hanks, acting supervising customs agent, said the narcotics, 200 ins of opium, were seized in a row >oat which had just received them rom the liner Tantalus, docked at Smith Cove.
