EXPORT MORE WHEAT It is understood Canada expects to be able to export an additional bushels between May 1 and Sept. 1. While the crop jear ends on August 1. the export figure is based on wheat at present in this country and does not include any new wheat. Canadian officials were not in a position to give assurance about this year's crops further than to state that the wheat acreage was about 26.460.000, up some acres from last year. The size of the crop to a great extent would depend on June rams. Canadian efforts to get as much delivered frorn the farms io the elevators were described to the British mission and it was ex- plained that wheat still remaining in growers' hands was scattered over prairie farms with no great stocks at any one piace.

May andre Parodi of France, president of the United Nations security council, called a meeting of the council for Wednesday to take up anew the controversial Iranian case.

The meeting; was called as the council awaited a report from Iran before midnight tonight as to -srhe- ther the evacuation of Russian troops from Iran had been com- pleted. Premier Ahmed Qavam Indicated in a cable 'to the United Nations Saturday night he still was unable to say definitely that; all Soviet forces had left Azerbaijan l province.

Tinder terms of a Russian-Iran- ian agreement, all Russian troops were to have been withdrawn from Iran by Mav 6.

She was under an actual protectorate during the First Great "War and when this was abolished in 1922 she signed an alliance which didn't alter her status much beyond the state- ment that her sovereignty was rec- ognized. As regards Britain's offer to give India complete independence and withdraw from the country, it is only fair to say that this isn't an idea born overnight in an emer- gencv.

Twenty years ago the 310 fanners comprising the western Honshu village of Xawaiciani couldnt produce yen among them for construction of a new primary school. They were so ashamed they agreed to abstain from sake, the country's leading liquor, for 20 years. During the drought the farm- ers saved 1500.000 yen. built their school and used the rest for village improvements. Last week the time was up and the 20-year thirsts were slaked in adequate fashion.
