DEWITT MacKENZIE SAYS Black Markets Big Factor In Hunger Crisis We are hearing a great deal about the plague of hunger which is sweeping Europe and Asia but cur- iously enough little is being said about one of the chief contributing black-market. It's one thing to talk about elim- inating black-market and quite an- other to knock out these insidious institutions which work by stealth and traffic on the weakness of hu- man nature. Still, they can be large- ly hamstrung by vigorous measures, as has been demonstrated by coun- tries like Britain arzd Switzerland. European black-market sare a vital matter to ihe western hemis- phere as it embarks on a relief program. Food is scarce the world over, and we have a right to as- surance that- our contributions won't fall into the hands of the racke- teers either directly, or indirectly by replacing foreign countrVs indigen- ous supplies so that the black-mar- kets can grab them.
