'Washington There is a reso
lution to extend* the life of the
Senate Rackets Committee pend
ing before the Senate.
Extension Necessary —The Rac
kets Committee, generally re
ferred to as the McClellan Com
mittee, went out of being as a
select committee on the last day
of March. As you know, it
was not created as a permanent
group but was created as a se
lect bipartisan committee to in
vestigate improper activities in
the labor or management fields,
-it is proposed to extend the|
7 committee for another year im
order to complete many unfin
ished details. The extension of
the committee is necessary. This
is true for many reasons. One
is that the committee has vo
luminous confidential records ac
cumulated in the •course of in
vestigations made by the staff
and much information from peo
ple regarding the malodorous in
filtration of the underworld in
to some areas of the labor-man
agement field. Since the work
of the committee, the courts
have been making valuable use
of some of the committee files to
help bring to justice those un
derworld characters and others
who have abused the honest
working man and who have vio
lated their trusts. As the com
mittee authorization from the
Senate has expired, this form of
cooperation cannot proceed.
Limited Nature—As I see it,
there is no urgency at the mo-j
ment for a full-staff approach j

to the problems. Rather I think
the committee should be extend
ed more in the nature jof a
stand-by group. If this is not
done a great amount of the
value of the committee’s long
and hard work will not be uti
lized. The Rules Committee has
favorably reported the resolu
tion to extend the Rackets Com
mittee for one year. I am hope
ful that the resolution will be
adopted forthwith by the Sen
Weather Satellite The suc
cessful performance by Tiros I,
the weather satellite launched at
Cape Caneveral, is an astound
ing achievement. As a member
of the Armed Services Commit
tee,! think this may be a giant
step forward toward the preser
vation of world peace. While
this type of satellite is in the
first steps of development, never
theless Tiros I has demonstrated
its potential. This will undoubt
edly hasten the time when space
cameras can successfully “spy”
on the entire earth.
It is gratifying that the first
satellite of this type to be orbit
ed is for a peaceful purpose.
Transmitted pictures of cloud
formations have already been
used to confirm weather condi-'
tions on a large scale. I

Gifts to education exceeded $1 billion in 1959, accord
ing to The American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel.
While giving to religion continued to total more than all
other causes, giving to education grew faster in the past
year than any other category of philanthropy. Total giving
increased more than S7OO million to reach an unexpected
high of $7.8 billion in 1959. The AAFRC, a non-profit
organization of major fund-raising firms, estimated that
individual giving increased $450 million, and is fo»»v times
greater than the combined total of all other philanthropic
gifts. Individuals gave an estimated $6.1 billion in 1959. h

agreement with his point of,

An increase of 16 percent in
North Carolina’s consumption of I
primary plant foods during the
fiscal year 1958-59 is shown in
a statement released by Assist- ,
ant Commissioner of Agriculture
John L. Reitzel.
The 1,642.000 tons of fertilizers

the state contained 403.512 tons
of the primary plant foods —ni-;
trogen, phosphate and potash—
compared with 342.386 tons of
these plant foods used in fiscal
year 1957-58. This represents
an increase of more than 20 per

! preceding nine years.
During the past 1C years the
] peak year for total tonnage was
1951-52. when 1.902,000 tons
were sold, bu; the primary plant
'food content that year was 3.-
423 tons less than in 1958-59.
Increases in total plant food
consumption without comparable
increases in total tonnage indi
cate the continue trend toward
use of mixed fertilizers with
higher analysis, Reitzel said.
Nearly 98 percent of the mixed
fertilizer sold in the state last
i year contained 20 or more units
of plant food, compared with
approximately 65 per cent in
that category 10 years ago.
About 80 percent of the pri
mary plant food used in the
state in 1958-59 was contained in
mixed fertilizers, which Reitzel
says has been the usual ratio in
recent years. Total consumption
of plant foods tast year bv kinds
was: Nitrogen. 129.000 tons, an
