Voorhis Cites Value of Co-ops In Club Address By Gretchen Smith An argument favoring wider adoption of the co-operative system as an answer to many of the Na tion's economic problems now and m postwar days was advanced by Representative Jerry Voorhis, Dem ocrat, of California at a lunch eon meeting of the Women's Na tional Democratic Club yesterday. While lauding the co-operative system, the speaker condemned trade monopolies, which he de clared must be “broken down," while the consumer’s purchasing power must keep pace with produc tion in order to permit all the people to live whole and rounded lives. Mr. Voorhis told of the success which the co-operative system has met in England. Sweden and China, and declared that China’s resistance to Japan would have been far less had it not been for the co-operative system existing in that country be fore the Japanese occupation. He recommended that distribution of seeds stock and other materials by UNRRA in the rehabilitation of the postwar world be handled by co-operative nonpolitical groups who will make it possible for the people to help themselves. This, he declared, would be far better than "handing out a lot of things’* or "handing them over to some politi cal hopeful." Industrial plants also could be directed effectively by the co-opera tive system in postwar days, the speaker continued. By promising to produce those things the people most need, co-operatives should oe made trustees of the plants, ne added. Mr. Voorhis asserted that not only was the co-operative sys tem an' answer to many economic problems, but it assured a way of life that gave people the chance to "apply from day to day the things they heard preached on Sunday ” The spiritual and religious in spiration which lies at the root of life is to be found in the co-opera tive system, the Representative de clared. When men fail to ooserve these principles, the world declines, and without them, there can never be peace and security, he com mented. "I believe the co-operative sys tem is the only answer to the mag nitude of the needs of the people of this world," he concluded. ‘A healthy growth of this co-operat've movement will enable us to meet a future with security and freedom.” Mrs. Hale T. Shenafield, vice president, who presided in the place of Mrs. Francis B. Sayre, president, introduced the speaker. Mrs. Voor his, wife of the speaker, was among the guests of honor at the speak er’s table. Others included Mrs. Helen Moodie. Mrs. Mary Moon and Miss Ernestine Friedman, who spoke during the morning on the pro gram of the Monday lecture series.

Prospect of Reduction In Food Crops Brings Plan for New Survey Faced by the prospect of reduced protein and vegetable oil crops this year as a result of farm manpower and machinery shortages, the ad ministration today was reported ready to resurvey the entire war food problem. The farm dilemma was empha sized yesterday when the Agriculture Department made public a survey indicating that as of March 1 many farmers were planning to reduce planting of food for human con sumption in favor of more bounti ful and better paying stock feed crops. This trend, it was understood, re sults from the fact that feed crops require less field labor and agricul tural machinery. Decision of the farmers, it was believed, was dic tated in part by recent discussions in Washington of a more drastic draft policy toward young, unmar ried farmers. Insurance Bill Submitted. Meanwhile, Chairman Fulmer of the House Agricultural Committee submitted a bill to revive and ex pand Federal crop insurance. Under his proposal, crop insur ance would be continued on wheat and cotton beginning with 1945 and extended to tobacco, corn and rice in 1946. v The insurance program on wheat had been in effect five years and on cotton for two years before Congress last year ordered the Federal Crop Insurance Corp. liquidated because of heavy losses to the Government. Liquidation is still under way. While the 374,000.000 acres planned for planting this spring promised to exceed last year's sow ing by 14,000.000 acres, the depart ment report made it plain that farmers are worried over the tight labor situation and doubt that promised farm machinery will be available in time for this season's crops. If farmers carry out present plans, nearly all of the increases in acre age over last year will be in corn, wheat, oats and sorghums—impor tant for livestock feed. Decreases, however, are in prospect for barley, flaxseed, rice, potatoes, dry beans, field peas, soybeans, peanuts and sugar beets. These include impor tant oil-bearing crops. ■ “Farmers are shifting to crops for which they have adequate ma chinery and equipment and which will require a minimum dependence upon labor other than what their families can provide,” the report stated. “Many of those who are advanced in years and have been dependent on hired labor are selling their farms, renting fields or reduc ing their operations to what they can handle.” Farm organization officials have warned that the new draft policy is a threat to food production and that the situation verges on “the tragic.” Ceiling Prices Posted On Store's Ceiling By the Associated Press.
