Deterding to Distribute More Food in Germany

Deterding to Distribute More Food in Germany


AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, June 7.–Sir Henri Deterding will continue his efforts to help Netherlands farmers by buying surplus produce for distribution in Germany.

Some months ago he spent 10,000,000 florins on agricultural produce that could not be sold by normal means because of clearing regulations. He gave this to the German Winter relief.

Sir Henri’s action met much criticism. It was said, for instance, that Germany’s situation was largely caused by her rearmament policy, and it was argued that if Netherlands farmers needed help it could be given directly instead of by way of Germany.

Ignoring all criticism, the famous oil magnate announced today he would soon devote another large sum to the purchase of agricultural surplus, mainly vegetables, for distribution in Germany.
