AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCI ATION | \ THE AMERICAN TRESS ASSOCIAI ION I FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1040 CRISIS IN BREAD Who ever imagined that the whole United States would ever face a cri tical bread shortage? Could anyone ever suppose that Oklahoma wheat farmers would tell Director Fiorelto LaGuardia of the UNNRA that they were ready to dump their grain on the ground unless the Government changed its policy for requisitioning grain. A delegation of representatives of those Oklaomha farmers and other Southwestern wheat growers laid their cards on the table before La- Guardia and declared that the recent Government wheat purchases, under which growers got a thirty-cent-a-bu shel bonus for wheat sold for famine relief benefited only Northern farm ers. Bread and meat lines have recent ly formed in virtually every city throughout the country, and in the National Capital there was no excep tion to this condition. The big hotels, as well hs the big political shots, in the National Capital are victims of the bread, meat, butter and margar ine shortage. What’s the reason? One guess ac cuses the OPA and other government agencies and “brass-hat” organiza tions. o— PROTECT THE NICKEL The volume of sugar used in phar maceuticals and in a number of foods bought daily by low-salaried consum ers— five-cent candy bars, boxes of crackers, ice cream, bottled bever ages—the Nation’s total increased food bill for sugar this year, already reaches staggering sums. Who is to pay it? Unlike many manufacturers of other products who often want to see a retail increase in the price paid for their merchandise, the producers of the five-cent sugar-containing foods do NOT wish to see the public pay more for their articles; these indus trialists insist that they want to main tain the five-cent retail price which the consumer pays for their products. They are, therefore, fighting on the side of the public against the infla tionary situation which threatens to increase the retail prices of these five-cent sugar-containing products. o THE PEOPLE COME FIRST It takes a long time for a new President to get in step with the job. Mr. Truman was given a royal wel come when he came into office—and then he began to slip downward, and opposition from Congress increased rapidly. Nevertheless, he made a great comeback when he cracked down on the railroad strike and forced a settle ment under his decision that ‘‘the interest of the public comes first.” The abuse he received at the hands of the leaders of the rail unions very correctly reacted in ihs favor. WHAT’S NEXT? There are a lot of opinions about what’s going to happen to the people of this country. Most rewards up-to date have been distributed among masses of strikers. At the same time the public has shouldered the bills and paid higher prices for every thing. Of course the main tragedy of it all is found in the upsets in our economic system, traceable very largely to the protection furnished for years by the White House and Congress. - o ■ ROAD TO RUIN Jones, of Texas, one of the “great est men in the Cabinet” before Pres ident Roosevelt traded him out to let Henry Wallace in, opposes the $3,- 750,000,000 British loan agreement and says it would carry the United States “along the road toward finan cial ruin” and put it into an exclu sive alliance with the British Em pire. WHO LIVES HERE? It has been estimated that we have in America a third of a million In dians; a third of a million Orientals, Filipinos and Mexicans; sixty mil lion Anglo-Saxons; ten million Irish; thirteen million negroes; fifteen mil lion Teutons; nine million Slavs; five million Italians; two million French men; four million Scandinavians and one million each of Finns, Lithuan ians and Greeks. Everyone in this conglomeration is supposed to be an American, at least they united as such to win the war. Yes, they were all American at war, but if they can not be Americans at peace and unite in preserving the "Spirit of 1776" let us sort out the dissenters and re conduct them to the places whence they came. Let ms make America i American. —Masonic News. i WAR BALLOT GROUP SEES NO NEED FOR SPECIAL SESSION Moves Quickly To Make Possible Voting By All Veterans Called into session by Governor Hebrert R. O’Conor to consider vot ing in the June 24 Primary Election by thousands of non-affiliated persons the Maryland War Ballot Commis sion, under its broad discretionary authority adopted two new rules to afford every possible opportunity for men and women who entered the Armed Forces to participate in all elections. Following the meeting, Governor O'Conor issued the following state ment. “The War Ballot Commission ex presses unanimously its opinion that the statute passed by the General As sembly vested this Commission with the widest discretion and authorizes the Con mission to adopt such rules and regulations as are necessary to make the law workable. “The Commission sees no sufficient reason for the State to be involved in the expense which would naturally be incident to a special session of the Legislature. In the opinion of the Commission, the rules adopted will make a special session unnecessary as it is the opinion of the Commis sion that the law is ample to allow the Commission the discretion which it has exercised. “With these purposes in mind, the War Ballot Commission has decided to adopt two rules which will have the effect of permitting servicemen to register and vote in the approaching primaries, irrespective of whether or not they indicated their party prefer ences under the Absentee Voting Law. Ti.e motion to adopt these rules was made by the Honorable D. Lind ley Sloan and was unanimously car ried. The rules are as follows: 1. Any absentee resident, as defin ed by law, who registered under the • absentee voting law and who is en -1 titled to vote under the provisions 1 thereof, and who is not affiliated with ■ a political party, may designate on ! bis application for a primary election ■ ballot the party with which he de ’ sires to be affiliated and thereupon ! the Board of Election Supervisors shall enter such affiliation in the ap propriate space opposite the name of each applicant, and shall mail to him . the ballot of the political party as designated in said application. 2. Any person who registered un [ der the provisions of the absentee L noting law and who failed to affiliate I with a political party and who re sides in Baltimore City or in a Coun ty where a system of permanent reg i istration has been adopted, shall be , entitled to affiliate with a political . party upon making application to the > registration officials of said City or . County in which he was so registered , at any time prior to the delivery of the registration records to the pre cinct voting officers before any pri mary or general election. WHY NOT? A cigarette dropped by a prowler ' is the only likely cause of a recent [ fire. . . .a fire which destroyed a store building. Now we wonder why there should not be a law to pay the own . er of such a building out of taxes im ; posed on cigarettes! A friend in Nel son County had his car smashed to pieces not so long ago by a drunken driver of another car. Why should not the state be compelled to reim burse the innocent man for car and body damage, doing it out of the tax es collected on the sale of the stuff that caused the damage? A law to make such payments imperative would soon show the foolish friends of legalized alcoholic beverages just how far wrong they are when they talk of the “big revenue” which a state realizes from the sale of the stuff—big revenue? Yes, but revenue collected at five times its value from innocent victims of the people who pay the liquor taxes.—Western Re corder. FOR BETTER STREET LIGHTING A survey in ten principal Connect icut cities of the circumstances caus ing 1,874 traffic fatalities over a per iod of fifteen years showed that 76 percent occurred on 13 percent of the total street mileage and that 71 per cent occurred at night. A pedes trian crossing the street at night in the middle of the block has 12 times as much chance of being killed as when he crosses at an intersection, the Bu.rvey showed, and that with the improvement of 60 miles of the more dangerous streets, the traffic fatali ties (Decreased 67 per cent. - ■ o Tomato outlook is reported to be good.
