Morgenthau Says FDR Overrode ExSecretary New Vice Presi dent Henry A Wallace who cur rently has been pleading for a more conciliatory attitude toward the Soviets joined forces with the department of state in 1933 in op posing the diplomatic recognition of Russia President Roosevelt in engineering the recognition had to override both Secretary of State Hull and Wallace This was revealed Thursday by Henry Morgenthau Jr former secretary of the treasury in the 3rd of his series of 6 signed arti cles in Colliers Weekly on Roose velt and the new deal His current article discloses details of several cabinet feuds over the presidents efforts to curb the warlike acts of Germany Japan and Francos Spain Roosevelt secretly planned the diplomatic recognition of Russia early in 1933 against the anti soviets attitude of the department of state to help create a com munity of good neighbors to op pose the aggressor nations Mor genthau says It was months later that Wallace then secretary of ag riculture strangely enough Morgenthau came out against recognition Wallace called on the president late in October 1933 in order to express his fears about the re ligious effect recognition would have on the country Morgenthau reports That conversation left the president thoroughly puzzled Wallace he told me later the same day is a kind of mystic Morgenthau also reveals that Wallace at about the same time frowned on the sale of 1000000 bales of governmentpurchased surplus cotton to China so that he could take more of our cotton land out of production and reduce our cotton crop Morgenthau himself urged the sale as a means of raising cotton prices and strength ening China against Japan While Wallace argued his case the department of states far east ern expert contended that it sale of the cotton might offend Japan Morgenthau says But Wallace simply ignored the for eignpolicy implications With him it was a battle of mind and con science over whether the American armer stood to gain more if cot ton were sold to the Chinese or plowed into the field Historians hroughout her history China has had about 4000 civil wars EXPECT INCREASE FOR BREAD PRICES Agriculture Department Report

OTHMAN Washington youre ad dicted to chocolate ice cream sodas you better cultivate a taste for raspberry If you own a genuine 5 cent chocolate bar put it quick ly with the family jewels in your safe deposit vault Boy If I werent trying to reduce Id be sore Theres monkey business in the cocoa trade from whence comes by devious crushings the chocolate bonbon of fond mem ory One of the wildesteyed infla tions in there have been some dillies in the raised the price of cocoa a cool 900 per cent A pound of cocoa beans cost less than a nickel before the war today with luck you may be able to buy em for half a dollar Wholesale I mean before the first squeezing My cocoa expert at the agricul ture department who prefers his chocolate bars with almonds has a good idea whos holding a pistol at the heads of American chocolate lovers If he werent afraid of get ting in a jam with the state de partment the United Nations and no telling who else hed say so out loud As it is hes hoarding his last remaining box of chocolate creams and keeping mum for the record The international cocoa cartel if any cant scare me on account of those inches around the middle Im trying to lose Let it threaten to cut off my chocolate supply and listen to me laugh here are the unsngared facts Cocoa conies from pods These follow the pink flowers on the cacao tree which grows only where its hot and humid like British West Africa which pro duces half the worlds supply and Brazil which grinds about 15 per cent more When there was free trade in cocoa before the war an ordinary pound box of chocolates at any corner drug store cost 40 cents When the fighting began the British and Brazilian govern ments took over control of their cocoa sales That was fair enough The 40 cent box of candy went to Came the end of the war but not the end of government con trols in Africa and South America The pound of candy went to That was months ago Asking prices of cocoa under the British and Brazilian bureaucrats have been soaring ever since And our original 40 cent box of chocolate creams if made with cocoa bought today probably would retail at That hasnt happened yet be cause most candy factories have on hand a few weeks supply of chocolate brought on the upgrade At the moment they arent buying Theyre hoping the price will col lapse The British and the Brazil ians arent saying anything Theyre just sitting on a mountain of cocoa beans Apparently ac cording to my chocolate lover theyre waiting for the American urge for cocoa to force sales at their price They seem to think this is my man talking again that chocolate to an American is as cocaine to a dope fiend A cocoa bean contains 1 per cent caffeine and 1 per cent of another stimulating drug with a lone name but its not that hab itforming Not at todays price it isnt So it is that most candy stores are beginning to feature pink bon bons and green without any choc olate overcoat The chocolate soda posters are coming down from the mirrors behind the drugstore fountains Many a nickel candy bar is appearing with a shell of choppedup peanuts The new cocoa crop in the jungles is ready for harvest and something in the chocolate crisis is about to crack I only hope it wont be my resolution regarding the old baywindow ANDERSON SEES NO NECESSITY YET FOR MOVE ByPassing of Grain Exchanges Aimed at Market Speculation Washington An derson said Friday the agricul ture department is studying pos sible purchase of wheat direct from farmers along with other ways of getting grain for Euro pean aid Leaving a white house cabinet meeting he said the department has that step under consideration But later he fold reporters that so far he sees no necessity for di rectfromthefarm purchasing Anderson explained If our procurement of grain bogs down we naturally want to have explored all the other pos sible means of buying I have told my boys to go look up the steps that we would have to take if we cannot get enough through normal channels This is one of them In another move on the grain forEurope front Anderson and Charles Luckman chairman of President Trumans food commit tee met with representatives of the distilling industry in an at tempt to work out a basis for sav ing grain Officials indicated that the meet ingcovered only preliminary phases of the matter and empha sized that cooperation by the dis tillers is a voluntary matter They said sentiment seemed to be that there will be no hesitation on cooperating The cabinet meeting was re ported to have been concerned chiefly with possible effects of the European aid program on prices One aim of directfromfarm buying of grain would be to min imize speculation on grain ex changes Anderson told reporters the gov ernment would prefer to contin ue buying through the normal channels of grain trade If we can continue to do so without prices getting out of hand we will not have to adopt the farm acquisition plan he said The agriculture department will have to buy the 570000000 bushels of grain which President Truman has set as a goal for shipments to Europe and other shortage areas this crop year This figure is 100 000000 bushels more than now appears in sight It is with the aim of making this extra 100000000 bushels available that Mr Truman has launched his food saving program Anderson said that direct buy ing from might follow last years commod ity credit corporation buying pro gram adopted when growers ap parently were withholding wheat from market in anticipation of higher prices or in an effort to hold down income tax payments If so Anderson said the pro gram probably would contain the feature under which payment was not made until the following tax year so that the transactions would not throw the sellers into higher tax brackets There have been reports that some farmers are reluctant to sell wheat this year because their in comes already arc high and taxes would take so large a bite from the money received from the sales Anderson did not mention an other feature of the 1946 program under which a 30cents a bushel premium was paid on wheat bought from farmers The cabinet meeting was mo nopolized by the new economic survey presented by Dr Edwin G NTourse chairman of President Trumans council of economic ad visers Nourse told reporters it predicts his country can meet Europes food and dollar needs without runaway inflation DUTCH QUEEN GIVES UP RULE Princess Juliana Will Take Over Royal Power The Hague The Nether ands government announced Fri day that Queen Wilhelmina would temporarily lay down her royal power in the near future for reasons of health and that Crown Princess Juliana would act as princess regent The announcement said that egislation would be introduced shortly in parliament to permit ransfer of the royal power The bulletin
