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 tained." 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 aaid. 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 er, Governments move through slow, tangled channels and, while I they debate, people starve. There fare, individual voluntary relief HoW MfQffifHI am d girls mayget wanted refief from functional periodic pain ERSES agencies must step in and pwvide the immediate help, the CARE direc tor held. Great Britain today, Mr. French reported, is on an official ration four per cent lower than its strict war 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. for sale, wants, LOST, FOUND, ETC JUST RECEIVED?Shipment of Du nont and Trojan, dusting powder for roses.
