Roosevelt Sees Food
Reserves Essential
For Emergencies
Importance as Weapon
Against Hitler Cited
In Note to Wickard
B5 the Associated Press.
President Roosevelt declared in a
letter made public todav by Secre
tary of Agriculture Wickard that the
country needed fqpd reserves “to
meet emergencies which can as yet
be only dimly foreseen.”
Addressed to the Secretary, the
communication was in acknowledge
ment of a report of the Agriculture
Department’s program to encourage
production of pork, dairy products,
poultry products and other foods. It
was dated July 25.
Mr. Roosevelt said that in this
time of crisis “food is a weapon
acrainst Hi t.l Prism ilist as ITUlCh as
munitions and food will continue to
be a weapon in all efforts toward in
suring a more orderly, prosperous
and peaceful world.”
Food Agency Unneeded.
He recalled that in the first World
War it became necessary to estab
lish a food administration, but added
that in the present struggle he saw
no reason to believe such an agency
would be needed.
He said agriculture was meeting
the situation much more satisfactor
ily by increasing production in an
orderly way “so that our own needs
and the needs of our friends can
be met without causing scarcity or
unduly high prices."
“As you pointed out,” the Presi
dent wrote, “we need not only
abundant production for sourselves
and for other nations resisting ag
gression, but we need reserves to
meet emergencies which can as yet
be only dimly foreseen. The mon
strous forces that Nazi-ism has loosed
upon the world are ravaging many
lands. The first task is to beat
down these forces and then to re
pair the damage they have done
to the best of our ability. In this
process of rebuilding and rehabili
tation, food will be essential."
He added a belief that farmers
could rest assured that they would
receive fair prices for their products
and would be protected after the
crisis ended.
Farm Committee Formed.
Wickard disclosed that at the
President's suggestion he had ap
pointed'the presidents of four lead
ing farm organizations as a com
mittee on agricultural production
for*defense and related matters.
TTiey are James G. Patton, presi
dent of the Farmers’ Educational
and Co-oerative Union of America;
Edward A. O’Neal, president of the
1 American Farm Bureau Federation;
Louis J. Taber, master of the Na
I tional Grange, and Judge John D.
Miller, president of the National
Co-operative Council.
The Agriculture Department said
the committee would meet regu
larly with the Secretary and other
j officials to aid in the defense pro
duction effort and “to" give assist
ance in other matters where the
experience and resources of the
farm organizations will prove help
ful in meeting defense needs.’*

Riveter Is Injured
In Two-Story Fall
Ralph Smithson, 38, a riveter on a
construction job at 740 Eleventh
I street N.W., suffered a possible frac
I ture of the right leg today when he
I fell 15 feet from the second floor of
the structure.

He lost both legs In a flying ac
cident while serving with the R. A. F.

fly with artificial limbs he managed
to re-enter the service after the
start of the war and participated
in many daring raids.
In one night during the height
of the Luftwaffe's blitz against
Britain last September his squadron
was credited with bringing down
14 Nazi planes.
Subsequently he was awarded the

metal legs were badly bent. He had
them straightened out and within
half an hour was in the air again.

Churchill Puts Ban
On Any More M. P.'s
Serving in U. S.
Mystery Surrounds
His Refusal to Send
Vernon Bartlett Here
By WILLIAM H. STONEMAiV,
Foreign Correspondent of The Star «nd
Chicago Daily New*.
LONDON, Aug 12.—The latest
mystery at the Ministry of Infor
mation Is why Vernon Bartlett,
prominent Liberal newspaperman
and member of Parliament, was not
allowed by Prime Minister Churchill
to go to the United States to join
the British Information Department
there.
Sir Gerald Campbell, director gen
eral of the British Information
Services in the United States, had
aslffa for Mr. Bartlett's services, re
sponsible authorities here had ap
proved, and he was duly wined and
dined. Then suddenly Mr. Churchill
announced that he did not want
any more M. P.'s to go abroad.
Now for some fantastic reason.
Mr. Bartlett, who knows the United
States well and knows Russia only
indifferently, is going to Russia to
broadcast for the British Broadcast
ing Corp.
Newspaper correspondents still
are trying to decide whether the
new deal at the ministry under
Brendan Bracken is going to be a
success or otherwise. One of the
new changes so far effected has
been the resignation of Douglas
Williams, head of the American sec
tion, who has been popular with
most American correspondents. He
seems to have stepped on the toes
of somebody with important con
nections.
During the last few dsys there
has been some discuss'on of the fact
that Mr. Churchill recently granted
an interview to a well-known visit
ing woman journalist after steadily
refusing to give the same privilege to
a large number of American corre
spondents who had been here
throughout the war. Rightly' or
wrongly, some correspondents are
extremely upset about this.
(Copyright. 1941, Chicago Daily News, Inc.)
The woman journalist referred to
by Mr. Stoneman apparently is Dor
othy Thompson, whose interview
with Prime Minister Churchill was
carried in her column, “On the Rec
ord,” in last Friday s Evening Star.
Priority Rule Changes
Church Drive Plans
B> the Associated Press.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo—A little matter
of defense priorities put a crimp in
the Wyatt Park Baptist Church's
attendance drive.
The congregation boosters planned
to send up 1.000 toy balloons, each
bearing an invitation to services but
the Government already had priority
on the necessary inflating gas.
13 Industries Expand
BALTIMORE, Aug, 12 (Special).
—Although no new industries were
acquired for Baltimore during July
there were expansions of 13 existing
Industries reported, according to the
Industrial Bureau of the Baltimore
Association of Commerce. Some
of the expansions involved large
plants engaged in defense work. A
total of 2,275 additional employes
will be required by the enterprises
and the expansions represent plant
investment of $6,002,000.

1HE advertisement reproduced above is now
appearing in leading national magazines in color.
It was delivered to these magazines some time
ago so that you could read it today.
Developments^ in the gasoline shortage situation
along the Eastern Seaboard have now made it
necessary to modify its message. We were unable
to make changes in the advertisement itself.

In behalf of National Defense, Texaco Dealers" in
the shortage area are cooperating with Petroleum
Coordinator Harold L. Ickes’ request that all
gasoline stations remain closed from 7 o’clock
in the evening until 7 o’clock in the morning.
Because they are cooperating fully with this
Government Program they are not rendering All

Texaco Dealers rendering All Night Service in
other parts of the country will, of course, continue
to render this service.
W e pledge our full cooperation, and ask yours, in
