V(>W once more they have heard, in a vague, unofficial
x and almost casual way, that Economic Stabilizer Chester
Bowles may recommend a return of rationing in August—
if such action is necessary ami if the American people are
willing to support it..
Blit why August? We have had repeated assurances
that the crisis is at hand. We have seen pictures of dead
and dying victims of starvation in China, India, Greece,
and elsewhere. If rationing in America is necessary to
save lives and if the process of putting rationing back in
motion is slow, why wait until August to begin it?
When the return of rationing was first discussed some
weeks ago, a Gallup pml showed that 59 percent of thost
questioned favored it if it was the only way to feed the
hungry of other lands.

And he nre. ’ 11 be encouraged by it. , But, having once

minority who do not favor it.
For Mr. Bowles probably remembers, as most of us
do. that during the war even a two-weeks’ forewarning o
new or resumed rationing of some item was the signal for
a rush of buying and hoarding. Today, with blaek niai-
kets still flourishing, a half-threat of rationing two and a
half months hence is a hoarding invitation for the greedy
But such an apparent blunder no longer scents re-
markable. It is unhappily typical of the unpreparednesH

operations of UNRRA, the combined food hoard, the stat<

WfASHIlMo. -.W. D. C— (NEA)—When Senator Theodore G. Bilbo
’v of Poplaivillc, Miss., walked out on a filibuster of the British
loan to go home and campaign for re-election, he said It was to take
care of "four peckerwoods” who were trying to take his Job twsy
Prominent Mississippians who follow closely the
way politics is played in their native state, claim
m Xffi that a year or so ago Bilbo was beaten. The Word
■ - _ ^ ■ had got around that Bilbo was doing his state ho
U wIbI • good in Washington, that he had no patronage'to
f .37 J speak of. and that he had got the state little or
■ W» A nothing in the way of federal money.
H Then the bills to abolish the poll tax and to
create a pcimanent Fair Employment Practices
t-ommission came up in Congress. Bilbo took out
flB after them. And a choice crew of northern new»-
Edson paper columnists and radio commentators, aided by
the CIO Political Action Committee, took out after
Bilbo. All during the poll tax and FEPC fights these profeMlonaJ
bleeding-hearts railed while Bilbo ranted.
The result was that the people of Mississippi reacted as anyone
with <1 grain of sense should have anticipated. They decided that
if the north didn’t like Bilbo, he must be all right.
A CTUALLY, it isn’t the November election that counts in Missis-
sippi Since there is no Republican opposition, few people bother
to vote unless it's a presidential election year
The primary on July 2 is something else again. That's what counta,
and Bilbo will have to stay home till it’s over. From 150,000 to
200,000 votes will be cast in the primary.
As for Bilbo’s ‘‘four peckerwood” opponents in Ihe primary, ex-
Congrcss'.nan Ross A. Collins of Meridian and Jackson is the best
known. Collins has served 10 terms in Congress. He and Bilbo were
great pals in their early years, and campaigned from the same buggy.
Collins was state attorney genera) when Bilbo was lieutenant gov-
ernor. Later they fell out over settlement of a state anti-trust suit,
and they have been enemies ever since.
This is Collins's third try for the Senate. m
QF the other candidates, Douglas Smith is'a lahdscsfie architect add
greenhouse operator in Jackson. He ran for Congress once, and
got less than 1000 votes in the primary.
Nelson Levings is just out of the Navy, in which he was 11 lieutenant
commander. Levings once ran for lieutenant governor of Mississippi,
und was defeated.
The fourth candidate is Frank (Peachtree) Harper. A great hitch-
hiker, lie is 73 years old und weighs 90 pounds. He used to caffy
peach tree seedlings around, selling them.
Just before the election lists closed, a sixth candidate got into this
race. Tom Q. Ellis, of Water Valley, Miss. Ellis for the past 10 yrtrs
