-Iouse Passes Crop Insurance
By Overwhelming Majority
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22.- (A')-
Voting overwhelmingly to revive a
farm program it once killed, the'
House today passed a Federal crop
insurance measure called for by both
major party platforms this year.
The vote was 254 to 16, sending to
the Senate the bill which provides
for immediate insurance on wheat,
cotton and flax crops and eventual
protection for almost everything else
a farmer plants.
Cost To l Limited
Nobody knows how much the pro-
gram will cost but, by a last-minute
atnendme;nt, the cost of administra- !
tion cannot exceed 25 per cent of the
amount collected in premiums.
The House killed a limited crola.
insurance program on June 23, 1943
after five years experimentation be-
cause opponents argued it was too
AII, ' OFFICIA. L
expensive. The vote then was 203 to
160 against it.
However, sentiment changed later,
and today many membc::,,,s who voted
to kill the program a year ago
Opposed on Cost
In two days of House consideration
the bill never was in serious jeopardy
although I several attempts were made
to bill it. Most opposition came from
two sources: those who view federal
insurance as an invasion of states
rights and, those who contend the
program doesn't justify its cost.
The insurance will be paid on crop
losses due to drought, Eood, hail,
wind, frost, winter-kill, lightn

tion, plant disease, fire, snow and

WITH THE AEF ON THE WEST-
ERN FRONT, (Delayed) -Along the
road leading to the captured fortress
the mud was thick and greasy. Over-

clouds chased each other, westward i

Man and beast lay dead, along the t
road. The cattle had been dead the
longest and their bodies were puffed
and bloated despite the cold weather.
Most of the men were killed the
night before or during the morn- t
ing. It was, now, raid-afternoon.
Now and then a battery of boig guns
flashed nearby and their explosions
went, rolling across the country
hard behind the sight of the muz-
zle blasts, then the 'echoes came
Just outside the fortress, prisoners
Istill were huddled under the watchful
l eye of 'a grim-faced guard. Their
faces looked sickly, mottled, weak
under their garrison caps or dirty,
straggly hair. It's odd how you take
helmets and guns away from the
toughest-looking guys and they im-
mediately appear puny.
Inside the fortress the wounded
lined a long, dark corridor on blood-
streaked .litters---Americans on one
side and Germans on the other. Half-
way down the dark alleyway a dim
light and the odors of antiseptics'
oozed out of a doorway. Inside doe-
tors and aid-men worked over the
silent wounded by lantern light.

German wiggled slightly on his

was silent and pasty-faced and

wounded doughboy was talking to a.
squatting aid man. "We fixed bayo-

eyes seemed to weave downward
slowly until they stopped, focused on
the slashed stomach across from him.
Then he whispered, "We had to.
They wouldn't come out and we
were getting killed."
Outside the fortress, the storm wac;
getting darher. The thick walls of
the ancient bastion seemed moulded

into the earth. The prisoners and
the guard stood looking; at it.
"They say they have been fighting
in that place for more than. a thous-
and years," the guard said. "I don't
see how they keep it up."
Another soldier came walking out
of another door where' the bodies of
American dead lay awaiting their
ride back from the front.
"They- keep it up, all right," he
said. . "They got all those guys in
there before they quit here."
They lit cigarettes, cupping their
hands to keep them dry, and the
thick blanket of the storm and the
darkness of death settled lower
over the western front.
