Worried About Wheat DEATH BEATS TRIBUNAL Sees No Solution To Food Crisis VANCOUVER. June (CJF-) S. Mooney, chief exec- utive of the administrative coun- cil (European) of U.N-K.R.A, said in an interview here last nisht that there is no solution to the world food crisis. "The crisis is he said, "and it is going to get worse. There no solution." He added that the problem is so vast and formidable that it has become a selective job. It is no longer a matter of how many we can save, he said, "but whom to save." barometer of human suf- fering is falling. People will die by the millions." Hintllsley To CutTaxes Tonight OTTAWA. June Finance 3Hnister Hsley tcday put the finhb-'.ng touches t- his all-important budget first he has presented for full peacetime year since" he took over the department charged Sting the taxation burdens of Canadian, Mr. Ilsley till read the speech In a crowded house of commons and Is scheduled to begin shortly after 5 pjn. af-S.T.

This portion will disclose what tax changes are to be made. Canadians, given a 18 per cent reduction in personal income tax last year, are looking for even greater relief this year not only in the income but in other tax fields. Observers feel income tax relief may be offset by a new social se- curity tax, revenue from which, will be used to implement health and programs. Roused by Reports U.S. Is Protesting Wheat Agreement As fsr as the concerned, some business field is observers expect the excess profits tax be dis- continued at- the end tbe-calen-- car year, as in the United King- dom.

Raps Cheating By Veterans On Car Priorities OTTAWA, June Reconstruction 3Bnister Howe said today the priority system for veterans on new cars and trucks "has bogged down com- pletely" and alleged that veter- ans have been re-selling their cars to civilians shortly after purchase "on a colossal scale." He the veterans com- mittee of the commons his de- partment stopped the policy of issuing priority certificates to veterans two months ago -when certificates exceeded available cars by some Mr. Howe rejected a sug- gestion that a system of Teter- ans priorities be extended to goods handled by War Assets Corporation. The suggestion was that the veterans department give qualified veterans priority cards for such things as farm machinery which could be honored by retail dealers. air. Howe said he did not like fo tackle the job of administer- ing any system "which allows colossal cheating." June 4C-P. Cable) London newspapers to- day gave front-page play to the progress of Anglo-Canadian wheat agreement negotiations, with .the Evening Standard bannerlining a Canadian Press story from Ottawa saying Ca- nadian government officials denied that United States op- position was delaying the loan. Morning-paper reports had in- cluded a daily express special from Washington saying: "American ob- jections are holding up the four- year agreement negotiated by iFood Minister John) Strachey lor Bri- tain. to take about tons of Canadian wheat a vear." CAUSE OF DELAY" OTTAWA, June government sources state the sus- pension of British-Canadian talks here on a. long-term wheat con- tract arises from Canadian reluc- tance to make commitments for large-scale annual shipments aad i is not becaus? of reported United j States opposition to the proposed agreement. These sources, in a position to have intimate knowledge of negotiations, told The Canadian Press the Dominion government was reluctant to tie itself to an agree- j ment involving wheat 5ales so large i that they might, in the event of a j future short crop, endanger Can- ada's position with other tradition- al customers. At the same time, they added, Canada always had in mind the effect of any possible agreement on United States wheat interests and the possible American reaction to a. long-term contract. These authorities said there was no disagreement which could not be ironed out between the British and Canadian delegations on the matter of price, which likelv would be at the present Canadian export rate of a. bushel for a specified period and subject to later adjust- ment In the light of world orices and supplies at that time. CANADA'S FEARS The main reason for the susoen- slon was said to be the matter of quantities of grain to be delivered to Britain during the life of the contract, which unofficial reports have said would run for four or five years. Before war Canada sold Bri- tain approximately bushels annually. The figure now under consideration" for the contract per- iod is believed- to be in -the neigh- borhood of bushels. The Canadian position on the question of deliveries is eaid to be this: Canada feels that If she com- mits herself to sell Britain an ex- cessive quantity, say bushels, she mav find in the event of a poor crop year that her total exportable surplus may total only that amount and she, would have no wheat to meet the requirements of her other customers- Then, if a bump'er crop year fol- lowed, she may find that those customers have turned to other wheat-producing areas and she would be left with unsaleable sur- pluses on her hands. There also was the possibility that the United Nations mighs work out some international plan for the distribution of wheat and Canada would be unable to participate if she did not have a flexible, mar- gin of surplus with which to work. authoritative statements clarified a situation complicated by reports and rumors about whv the conversations, which began a week ago last Saturday between British and Canadian government officials. came to a sudden and unannounced halt at a time when thev were be- lieved to be moving smoothly to successful conclusion.

CONCESSION BY RUSSIA Mr. Molotov at a special meeting last night offered his proposals with tlie double-edged assertion that they were a concession to show Russia's willingness to com- promise but thai b-r. government would never agree to any settlement which was incompatible with Yugo- slavia's desire for sovereigntv over Trieste.
