Johnsor OPA District Di rector said today Johnson quoted excerpts fron the letter addressed to member of the House and Senate Bank ing Committee: "Our farm families know fron first-hand experience what pric control has meant to them dur ing the war and they know fur ther what price control can meai to them?the difference betweei success and failure?during th reconversion period. In fact, a you know, the National Farmer' Union . . . put Its full force he hind the objective of the pric control program and has con tinued its full support each tim the act has come up for re ncwal."

Joe Williams of Yadklnville, assistant j to State Farm Bureau Secretary t Flake Shaw, is the master of s ceremonies on this cruise. He's a s whiz at organization, and those , making the trip wili chip in to provde for him a very handsome i Christmas present, i The group left Raleigh last f Friday morning at 8 o'clock in t 23-degree temperature for the r 2.000-mile round trip?which just goes to show you what devout members the Farm Bureau has in 1 this State. They spent Friday r night in Charleston, W. Va.. and . the next night in Cincinnati, arj living in Chicago on Sunday afternoon. They pulled out of Chicago I bright and early this (Thursday) 1 morning, and you may expect ! them home some time Saturday i night. Everything Was No Doubt j Blight And Cheerful At The Convention, but the Farm Bureau lias rolled up its sleeves in a 1 fight with the National Grange and the fertilizer companies, i A strong supporter of cooperatives. the Fat in Bureau wants the Government to maintain around a j half-dozen war plants for the production of fertilizer. You know, after the last war Muscle Shoals was used for some kind of fertilizer doings, and the Farm - Bureau would like to see the Govs eminent step into the plant food t business again. The National Grange is against j it. and the State Grange is one f of the leaders in the fight against f it?and theie is just a chance 0 that the North Carolina unit of s the National Farm Bureau may go along with the State Grange , in opposing the idea. The general feeling around Ra, leigh is that the bill to put the Government into the fertilizer n business may be defeated before s it reaches Congress. The plant food boys feel they can withstand the Government's lime prou gram alt right, but they are afraid e the manufacture and sale of fer tilizer by Uncle Sam might - eventually put them out of busin ness. n Since North Carolina uses about e one-sixth of all fertilizer sold in s the United States, this State s finds itself right in the middle of - the battle. e; * * * -1 As This Column Hinted Nearly e A Year Ago, Dean \V.

' As an expert in livestock work,, his talents will now be directed j toward experimental work for all I the test farms instead of for only! I two. So he really isn't lost to I the test faints. ; Here is another hint: Colvard I will probably go to school for another year or two on a leave : of absence after he goes with ! Animal Industry. He would like I to have his doctorate. On the sunny side of 35, lie is a cocksure and confident man and within the next 10 years should | emerge as one of the outstanding , livestock specialists of the entire United States.

' An Official Of The State Democratic Party last week directed a stinging letter to our delegates in Congress protesting against continuation of the draft. He said the calling up of thousands and thousands of boys each week from high school and college is rank foolishness. With the war! technically over and the occupation forces utilizing only a very1 small percent of the men and I women in the armed services, I what in thunderation are they doing? what do they plan to do? with these hoys? Those wanting two years' military training for every American boy are getting their wishes right along, aart the bill hasn't even approached thp fighting stage as yet. It biggins to look as if the Army will continue diagging our young men away from home and education uhtil the war has been j declared officially concluded by President Truman. But the Army ' is doing its reputation no good? | good football teams or not. The boys being drafted now can be ! kept in the services until six j months after Truman decides the j war is over. ? ? ?
