The conference, attended by
77 delegates from 30 countries,
including a vice-president, a
prime minister and 12 cabinet
ministers of different nations,
brought agricultural scientists,
economists and sociologists to-
gether with politicians and 'ad-
ministrators in frank, "down-to-
earth" discussions of ways and
means for increasing food pro-
duction in the emergent states.
Senator Manahan recalled
a Philippine fable which de-
scribes the creation of Man.
"God made a figure of clay
and put it in the oven; when
He took it out, He decided
that it was too white, that it
had not been baked hard
enough or long enough. So
he made another figure and
kept it in the oven for long-
er. This time it was light
brown when He took it out.
The third try produced the

Senator Manahan's fable was
taken up by Mrs. Golda Meir,
Israel's Foreign Minister, who
delivered the concluding ad-

"There used to be a belief,"
she said, "that some people who

Introducing herself as a one-
time farmer, and recalling her
life in a kibbutz when she first
came to Israel, Mrs. Meir add-
ed: "You will not solve your
agricultural problems, however
good your planning may be, as
long as farmers are kept on the
bottom rung of the ladder. Re-
spect for the dignity of agricul-
tural labour is essential. It is
morally wrong for the man who
produces the nation's bread, to
subsist on crumbs—either liter-
ally or symbolically."
