TRADE IS STEADY With average weekly earnings at I an all-time high and employment holding steady, there is nothing in today's economh picture to indicate! . any prospect of' downward ; and a recession, according to _ Clague, Director of" the Bureau of Labor Statistics. So far, he stated at a press con-| ference in releasing his'monthly ployment review, such fluttuatL?. as have been evident in employment here and there are <jnly reflections of normal 'seasonal conditions. Preliminary figures show average! weekly earnings in the manufactor-| ipg industries for May reached 848.86, an all-time high, topping even war-time peaks. Despite one or two sdft spots, inl the construction and textile indus tries, Mr. Clague sees no signs of any! basic weakness in the economic pic ture at present, although he admit ted that no on,e - can safely predict what may happen before the end ofl the year. . - The Construction picture so far! this year, while behind previous ex pectations, is brighter than it Ap peared last month.'due to"new in-| formation which revised the figures slightly upward. Mr. Clague reported that 69,000| new housing units were started May, higher than anticipated __ above any previous postwar mark. -Although bidding,has leveled out sooner, than expected. "1947 will stilll be one of the best construction years I in our history," he predicted. J In all fields of employment with! the exception of construction, these charts showed almo.it identical em ployment levels with those of 1939J except that thbse of today are along a higher plateau "with plenty strength," as Mr. Clague pot it. In terms of prewar dollars, < struction at the present time about 17,000,000,000. On this the country is still far below building boom of the* ZO'a when three yeark the peak construction over $10,000,000,OOOin terms of'pre war dollars. Mr. Clague said that the cost the first time in May, but that la building materials turned down costs are still rising. Labor however, have not risen as am material prices, he said. Mr. Clague emphasised that weekly'earnings of $48.86 in is "extremely preliminary" but it would remain above $48 when figures are computed. The record was $47.60 for a week, the new earning figures , for an average week of 40.4-hours. The total number of employees nenagricultural industry rose 800/ in May to 41,983,000.. He said the seasonal rises in construction, mining, trade and services acco for the increased employment. BANKS ACT TO PREVENT POSTWAR FARM DISASTER Can Fanner Jones, U. S. A., be saved from the disastrous coose of an excessive land price St, Like everything else, during cent yean, farm incomes have been rising and farm land prices have leaked with them. v\, ,, - Fanner Jones' income in 1946 has been estimated at *24,761,000,000. ' . Evan more impressive is the federal report that Income in the first half of 1947 was 3* per ofnt more than p?r c the 1946 rats. These reeocd receipts hem. a number efers sources, could buy Farmer Jones' The Government paid I ley in "incentive pa, **???*?" Juo 1. Discourage all high ^2. the mortgaging of presently owned farms for the pur pose of buying additional land. 4. Encourage farmers to pay their existing mortgage debts. 5. Urge farmers to buQd up finan cial reserves through' ownership of Treasury bonds and savings deposits in banks. 4 > 6. Help their farmer custolners keep in a sound financial position. 7. Keep in mind constantly that the sound value of farm land depends upon the capacity of the farms to produce a profitable Income over a period of yean. Farm mortgage loans have not increased disproportionately in rela tion to time deposits, according to Mr. Bailpy. Mr. Bailey, -however, warned the Washington conference that: "There are now pending before the Congress legislative proposals which, it enacted into law; could further ac centuate the inflationary trend of farpi land prices ..." (These pro posals would permanently raise the limit on Land Bank mortgage#- ftout G5 to 75 per cent of appraised value. The 75 per cent limit has been In ef fect ss an emergency measure.) ? Another aspect of the farm loan situation?too easy credit?was dis cussed recently by A. G. Brown, Di rector "of the ABA's Agricultural Commission and formerly President of the Federal Land Bank at Louis ville, Ky. According to,Mr. Brown, Farmer Jones was able, during the depres sion, to borrow money directly or in directly guaranteed by the U. S. Government. But, wrote Mr?Brcwn, although the emergency ended, the emergency agency lingered on. TOTAL STATE In ALL ITS GLORY (Industrial News Review) It will be interesting fa see just how American Communists, Com munist1-sympathisers, and. fellow-tra velera go < about squaring the present policy, of the Soviet Unicoi with the old propaganda to the effect that their particular "brand of dictatorship offers the sole hope for bettering the -let of the "common mah." When,- some tyne ago, the Soviet Union refused to join fa the Mar shall Plan for the rehabilitation of Europe, it divided the world into two opposing camps. It made united ef fort for putting hungry and destitute peoples on their feet, impossible. It decreed, in effect, that the citizens of the small nations suth as Czecho slovakia must divorce themselves from all hope of American sssi stance en pain of "displeasing" Moscow-? and thereby invitfag the kfad of ter rorism that subdued Hungary. - The peoples of these unhappy countries were not, of course, given the opportunity to express their own wishes in the matter. Ifis only in "degenerate" capitalist nations that the ordinary citizen has <? free bal lot, free speech and a free press. Only under the obsolete and ridiea loug-^democratic system can a is work or not wink as he pleases, start a business, speak his mini, and go about his affairs wjthout dread of secret police and drumhead courts and concentration camps and slave labor. Only where the lugh-Hr in stitution of free enterprise exists do the people control their government ??u*l choose their officials all~tfc way from town marshal to the head of the nation. Communism feeds upon despair, starvation, term. The Soviet high command has decided that these jhall be its gifts to every nation which it can influence and dominate. It is ?faWing one of the most brutal sys as of slavery fa the history of the rid. Here is the total-state, fa all its glory.

FARMERS ARE WARNED TO CONTINUE FIGHT AGAINST .BOLL WEEVIL North Carolina farmers should, strengthen their efforts in control ling the. holf wetfril, says James T. Conner, Jr., Extension Entomologist ot State College, because cotton is now coming into lis most defenseless stage tp the attack of the pest." "The critical time for boll weevil damafee comes when 'the pests begin migration," the specialist, said. This usually'occurs during the late fruit ing season, and it is at this time when the boll weevils begin- moving from one field to another, he added. When fruiting of the plant is a bout complete the weevils begin da maging the bolis by feeding upon them and laying eggs in them. Actually there are enough squares and bolls on cbtton in mogt fields to produce good, yields, Mr. Connor de clared, but unless the farmer uses strict control measures from now un til the migration period for the boll weevil is over, the yield will be greatly reduced. 7 The supplies of calcium arsenate continue to be rather short, he stat ed, but there are still several firms throughout -the which have some qp hand. If you experience dif ficulty in finding-the material, Mr. Conner suggests that you. get in touch with him and he will inform you where you wilf be able to buy In the absence of calcium arsen ate, some fhrmerq are having favor able results with the use of chlori nated campHene, and benzene hexa chloride. Either of "these mats rials costs from tworthirds to twice as much as* the arsenate, lie said, there-' fore farmers should use them judi ciously. Plants can be dusted either by ground equipment or airplanes and the plants do not have tit be wet When the dusting is dene, however, the air should be eaim. If a field has high infestation, it is best to dust now before migra tion begins.. After migration, the field will probably require three or tdSr dustings' at five- or six-day in tervals. ?
