European Need For
Food Is Critical
Millions of Europeans have abso
utely no hope of escaping starvation
in the coming months unless they re
ceive immediate help from the Unit
ed States, according to Paul Comly
French, Executive Director of Co
operative for American Remittance
to Europe, Inc. (CARE).
In a special food survey released
at a press conference Thursday, Mr.
French declared that conditions in
many countries, instead of improving
with spring crops, have worsened.
"After suffering the-severest win
ter in over a hundred years, home
less, hungry Europe suffered its most
disastrous spring," Mr, French
stressed. "Floods and frost destroy
ed basic crops and grain reserves in
country after country. EVen. present
starvation rations cannot be main
In his qation-by-nation analysis of
the food situation in Europe, Mr.
French said the situation in Romania
was perhaps the worst. There, he
reported, people areeating grass and
bark and perishing' from hunger.. It
is predated there will -be continued
famine in that country next year, he
Mr. French told reporters that
CARE is equipped to handle a total
of 50,000 packages a day. The or
ganization now is sending about
12,000 a day.
The need for food is so great in
Europe that the Government should
Ldo a major part of the relief job, Mr.
I French declared. He added, bow

slow, tangled channels and, while
I they debate, people starve. There

Great Britain today, Mr. French
reported, is on an official ration four

time diet. , ? "!*>.|
Briefly, his survey disclosed that:
In Holland, conditions are worsen
ing because of the severe winter
which closed all the canals.
Austria's food production is at toss
than half its prewar level and the
I country's division into four sones has
i seriously hampered distribution of
available food. ?. >
In Poland, average consumption
has dropped from 2J160 calories in
February 1,880 calories in March.
Food is the most desperate prob
lem in Greece, much of the popula
tion bring forced to struggle along
on an estimated 1,200 calories a day.
Spaghetti has disappeared from
Italy; January rations provided 750
calories a person a day.
