Md., Va. 10 Western European Nations Bid lor More Food From Soviet Bloc ROME, Oct. 15.—Agricultural experts of 10 Western European nations bid openly today for more food from Communist Eastern Europe and said a drop in such imports from the East might mean malnutrition and hunger. To balance any shortage from the East, the experts said, West ern Europe would be forced to use scarce dollars to buy more food supplies from the United States and other overseas areas. They argued for increased East West trade in a report drawn up at a five-day meeting here for the world conference of the Food and Agriculture Organization in Washington next month. The Western nations represent ed were Austria, Britain, Belgium, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland, Joining in the con ference was J. Dulic of Yugo slavia. He was the only delegate from Eastern Europe. Food production in Western Europe has been somewhat ham pered by drought this year. That in Eastern Europe is reported good. Soviet Russia announced today that her 1949 grain harvest ex ceeds that of last year, when the yield was reported to be almost 130,000.000 tons. The amount of the excess was not stated. The report was coupled with a decla ration that the output of Soviet industry in the first nine months of 1949 exceeded that of the same period last year by 20 per cent. Russia and her satellites have imposed an economic squeeze on the independent Communist re gime of Yugoslav Premier Mar shal Tito. Dulic told the conference Yu goslavia needs FAO help especial ly in soil fertility programs, im provement of grass lands, refor estation and irrigation. He ap pealed for fertilizer, farm imple ments and spare parts for trac tors at reasonable prices. i Italian Red Leader Attacks New York Trial By the Associated Press ROME, Oct. 15.—Italy's No. 1 Communist, Palmiro Togliatti, to day compared the conviction of 11 American Communist leaders to the “acts of violence with w'hich Fascists thought to destroy Com munist and Socialist movements.” "The New York conviction,” he said in a signed statement, “tears the mask from the so-called American democracy, showing all that this democratic pretense is nothing but the anti-democratic dictatorship of capitalists over the workers.” Togliatti said the conviction was absurd because the “working class has not only the right, but the sacrosanct duty to fight, upon po litical and economic grounds, to defeat capitalism and create So cialism.” Maybank Sails Abroad For Senate Studies fty the Associated Press NEW YORK.

COMPUTE AUTO INTERIOR UPHOLSTERING SERVICE Open Daily 8:30 to 9 Ample Drive-In Space—No Waiting for Service Adult Leaders Have Busy Day Practicing Cub Scout Routines Cub Scouting took a new twist at the Naval Receiving Sta tion yesterday, with adult leaders going through the paces usually reserved for Cub packs. Building the tepee are (left to right) Mrs. Vernon Wertz, Joe Reynolds, Mrs. Alice Fern (kneeling) and Mrs. H. A. Brentlinger, —Star Staff Photo. Adult Cub Scout leaders, the den mothers and pack masters, who usually can't get away from the household and office, yesterday had a full day's experience In cub bing. They went through all the paces practiced by their 8 to 11 year old bobcats, wolfs, bears and lions at a ‘ Pow Wow” at the Naval Re ceiving Station. More than 450 persons, principally parents, at tended the four hours of active practice and instruction in games, handicrafts, administration and ceremonies. The event, sponsored by the Na tional Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, ended with a 7:30 p.m. banquet, at which Robert H. Heistand, Scout execu tive from the Baltimore Area, gave the keynote address. Earlier, however, in the gym nasium, the adults were mastering games that the Cubs could enjoy in their dens without wrecking the den mother's furniture. They marble-bowled, a feat which can be performed on a small table, tossed gliss jar rings and ‘ walked the plank,” a two by four. In the auditorium, Ellery Deni son, chairman of the ceremonies and entertainment Action, was watching two fathers, at center stage, trying to work their way out of a rope trick, appropriately named ‘‘prisoner's escape.” Mr. Denison explained that the par ents often joined in the enter tainment during meetings with the youngsters. The instruction in ceremonies included den openings and clos ing rituals and bobcat Induction, which is done when the boys first enter the~Cub classification. The pounding of small ham mers and snip-snip of scissors marked the handicraft section, where 10 different crafts were being practiced. E. P. Moran, chairman, led a1 tour through the manufacturing centers for wood fiber flowers, acetate birds, letter holders, dog toothbrush holders, Indian loom work, leather comb cases, puzzles, three-dimensional postcards, but terfly pins and paper craft. “We don’t throw away anything in cubbing,” he explained. "Why, I can show you how to make flow ers out of orange rinds and with corn shucks , . The management of packs was taught in the administration sec tion, the less active of the after noon’s features. Each table at the banquet was decorated with a colorful center piece made by the individual dens to show their various activities. The attending leaders represented about 6,000 Cubs of the 136 packs in the area. Training awards were presented to L. G. Humphrey, cub master, and H. R. Hampton, committee chairman, of Cub Pack 211, Be thesda. H. F. Brownfield was chairman of the Pow Wow Com mittee and other section chairmen were Fred Rohrbach, games, and Mr. Hampton, administration. Parks Group Expected To Take Up Proposed East Capitol St. Bridge The proposed new bridge across the Anacostia River along the line of East Capitol street is expected to come up for further discussion at the next meeting of the Na tional Capital Park and Planning Commission October 26, 27 and 28. District Engineer Commissioner Gordon R. Young, a member of the planning commission, who has just returned from a trip abroad, said yesterday he regards another bridge across the Anacostia as “No. 1 among the big picture” construction projects contemplat ed here. The project needs the joint ap proval of the planning commis sion and the District Commis sioners. Highway Report Studied. The planning commission, which has contemplated construction of the next bridge over the Anacostia along the line of Massachusetts avenue S.E., has been studying a detailed report of the District Highway Department recommend ing the East Capitol street loca tion. Gen. Young said he felt a con vincing case had been presented for the East Capitol street line by the highway department, which used information gathered in the origin and destination survey, and indicated his disposal to go along with it, although he said he had not closed his mind on the sub ject. Acceptance of the East Capitol street location would bring up a possible conflict by proposals for construction of exhibit buildings on the Anacostia flats for the District’s Sesquiceryennial Cele bration next year. Federal Aid a Factor. Questioned about this, Gen. Young pointed out that plans for the bridge had not been roughed out yet, but admitted there would be a need for co-ordinating the plans of the two projects. He said he expected the matter would be taken up by the planning commission at this month s meet ing. . The Highway Department, in its 1951 budget requests, has in cluded $3,560,000 for the first leg of construction on the pro posed new bridge, which it is estimated will cost between $8, 000,000 and $12,000,000. Gen. Young said a big factor is the continuation of Federal aid funds to match the District’s out lay. The Federal aid authoriza tion runs out in 1951, he pointed out, but if the program could be continued three or four years, the bridge could be completed on a 50-50 basis with Federal and Dis trict funds. The engineer commissioner said he was hopeful the work could be done in fiscal 1951 and 1952 for the most part, with completion in 1953.

Borba, newspaper voice of the Yugoslav government,, said Kostov will be tried soon, however, and that a date had been set after one postponement. The newspaper implied that Kostov was expected to play a role in the trial similar to that of Laszlo Rak, who was executed in Hungary today for a purported treason plot by sympathizers with Marshal Tito's independence-of Moscow views. Kostov was first reported under arrest last April by the Yugo slav press. This was not con firmed by Bulgaria until July, though he was removed from the party and his government posi tion in April. The Bulgarian press accused him of being a Titoist. Meanwhile, the Yugoslav gov ernment accused Romania of fre quent violations of the Yugoslav border and air space and of at tempts to “provoke armed inci dents and unrest.” The accusation was in a note replying to Romania’s rupture of her friendship treaty and alli ance with Yugoslavia. Similar notes already have gone to Russia, Bulgaria and Hungary. Replies have yet to be made to Czecho slovakia and Poland, who also broke their treaties with Yugo slavia. The note said Romania had broken the pact in servile com pliance with Soviet orders. It re jected all the "falsehoods and in sults” which it said were con tained in the Romanian note. The average annual cotton crop of Texas is so large that its value approaches the total value of the production of gold, silver, zinc, lead and copper mines in the United States.
