Facing the Facts
With PHILIP PKARL
Two significant things escaped no
tice in the daily press accounts of
John L. Lewis' threat in a West Vir
Snia speech to form his own private
■ First eras Mr. Lewis’ startling fail
ure to mention the fact that the pres
ent Communist Party organisation
would be the nucleus and foundation
of such a third pa try.
Hollywood gives us movies which
star dogs, elephants, penguins, and
even a pig like the one Will Rogers
cherished la “State Fair ” But “Green
Acres,” aa all-color movie now mak
ing the rounds of farm meetings, is
the first one to elevate “Bossy,” the
milch cow, to stardom. Included in her
supporting cast are beef cattle, sheep,
hogs, and horses. But “Bossy” gets
all the fat lines—and that’s no joke,
as farmers will observe when they see
the picture at one of their farm
The picture tells the story of pas
ture improvement which today is mak
ing ita way into the front rank of up
to-date profitable farming practices.
“Despite the fact that pastors is the
cheapest feed that can bo grown for
any kind of livestock, pastors im
provement is just beginning to receive
the serious attention it deserves,”
said R. H. Losh, Pasture Specialist,
The National Fertiliser Association
and co-director of “Green Acres.” “It
is a crop that responds to plant food,
lime, and good management Results
of hundreds of experiments and dem
onstrations conducted hy State Ex
periment Stations have spot-lighted
its value to every farmer.”
“Every well-fed cow,” said Mr.
Lush, “eats the equivalent of 100
pounds of grass a day. The cost of
producing 100 pounds of digestible nu
trients from oats is $2.02; from corn
silage 11.54; from corn grain $1.38,
while pasture produces this amount
The results of 34 experiments also
showed that the cost of producing 100
pounds of beef on unfflfprtved ftnfer
tilixed pasture was $4.05, while the
cost on fertilized pasture was only
$2.71. The same experiment showed
that unfertilized pasture produced |
only 12.6 cans of milk per acre, while
the treated pasture made 44 cans.
Results of 7 years experiments at
Tifton, Georgia, show unimproved
pastures produced only 65 pounds of
beef cattle per acre, while carpet grass
and legume pastures fertilised pro
duced 291 pounds of beef per acre.

Second was the equally astonishing
denunciation by Lewis of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation.
If the J. Edgar Hoover’s P. B. I.
agents have been investigating the
CIO and getting into Lewis’ hair,
this is the first we’ve heard about it
• I We do know, however, that these
'Federal agents have been investigat
ing Stalin’s stooges in this country
and ferreting them out of their sec
ret hiding places. Communist lead
ers have been indicted and others
have been forced to register as agents
of a foreign country in accordance
with our laws. Naturally, this sort
of activity has annoyed the Commun
ists no end. How refreshing it is to
see John L. Lewis go to bat for them.
There has also been some specula
tion as twho John L.’s candidate
would be on a third party ticket. The
answer is obvious. No one other than
John L. himself. We said that in this
column two weeks before Lewis made
his speech and we might point out,
with all due modesty, that we called
the turn on his poltical finagalings.

There comes to us from a high of
ficial in the Navy Department a copy
of a circular distributed at the gates
of the Washington Navy Yard this
week by Communist agitators.
This leaflet, which bears the im
print of the Communist Party, de
clares that the bitter terms which
Stalin forced down the throat of Pin
land in return for ending the most
brutal and inexcusable war of oppres
sion in modern history, “greatly
strengthened efforts of the interna
tional peace forces.” It added;
“The imperialist war-mongers in
Great Britain, France and the United
States had made a military base of
Finland. They dreamed of turning it
into a lighted fuse with which to
spread the flames of the preesnt war
to the Scandinavian and Balkan
countries and to convert the war into
an onslaught against the workers re
public, the Soviet Union.”
Just think of it! The Communist
Party now openly dares to distribute

such subversive propaganda to Amer

engaged in building up America's de
fenses against war.
In one paragraph the leaflet refers
to the “Stalinist peace policy” and
then it proceeds to apply such epithets
as “war-mongers” ana “imperialist”
to our own, idealistic country.
That isn't all. » The leaflet con

Note that the gentlemen named in
the foregoing paragraph of the Com
munist leaflet all have denounced the
cruel, double-dealing policies of Stalin.
Note, also, that Sidney Hillman is the
only CIO leader attacked. That is be
cause he alone of the CIO top lead
ers has dared to denounce Stalinism.
But the most significant thing in
the Communist leaflet is its conclud
ing statement of the “demands of the
people.” They list the following:
“Defend civil rights. Defeat the
hunger budget. Put an end to the
anti-Soviet policies of the Roosevelt
Defend civil rights? That phrase
has a familiar ring. We have just

Fertilizer Brings North Carolina Farmers
One Hundred Thirty Million Dollars
Extra dollar return* on Cotton, Vegetable*. and Tobacco, which farmer*
received Nationally for each dollar tpent on fertilizer.
The gigantic sum—three billion dol
lars—which fanners have received
from the Government under the AAA
since 1933 is equaled by the extra
dollar value of increased yields pro
duced by fertiliser in the same period,
according to estimates made from per
sonal interviews with 32,000 farmers
in 35 States.
North Carolina farmers gave the In
terviewers grass-root facts which
show that for every dollar they spent
for fertiliser they received an average
return in increased yields of $4.89. In
other words. North Carolina farmers
spent $27,378,000 for fertiliser. The
extra return which they received from
its use amounted to $133,748,000,
leaving an increased income above the
cost of the fertilizer of $100,370,000.
The returns from each dollar North
Carolina invested in fertiliser, as
shown by The National Fertiliser As
locution survey, varied from crop to
crop. Tobacco led the list with an
increased value return At |9.13. Cot
ton ranked well up with • return of
$3.85. Other crops reported were po
tatoes, which brought $3.97 for each
dollar invested; corn, $1.83; peanuts,
$5.19; and cabbage, $5.11.
North Carolina farmers also had
their say about the effects of fertiliser
on quality of crops. Over 83 per cent
said they got better market quality in
all cash crops, while 52 per ceiw said
they got better feeding quality in
grain and hay, and 19 per cent de
clared they observed better shipping
quality in fruits and vegetables.
Average return in increased yields
for all crops in all States shown by
the survey was $3.60 for each dollar
spent on fertiliser. Nationwide, the
crops showing highest rate of return
were: tobacco, cotton, fruits, and vege
