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 ird-party. ■ 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. MOVIE FEATURES PASTURE PROFITS 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 meetings. 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 for $.04.” 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.

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. thb red link 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!

Clatotog ate such subversive propaganda to Amer ican workers in American Navy Yards 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 tinues: “Here in the United States, the war mongers were aided by the Woils, Dubinskys, Greens and Hillmans. But they failed miserably in their attempt to chain the American labor move ment to the anti-peace policy of Hoover and Roosevelt.” boring mo* within 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 Administration.” Defend civil rights? That phrase has a familiar ring. We have just received a copy of a call to a confer ence on “Civil Rights,” to be held April 20 and 21 in Washington by the Wash ington Committee for Democratic Ac tion. The President of this newly formed committee is Merle D. Vincent, Chief of the Exemption and Hearings Section of the Wage-Hour Division of the Department of Labor. Among the three speakers listed for a discussion on “civil rights and mi nority groups are Morris Watson, left-wing vice-president of the CIO Newspaper Guild, and Elizabeth Gur ley Flynn, self-described as a mem ber of the National Committee of the Communist Party. Now we do not have a low boiling point. _ We have never been particu larly interested in witch-hunting or red-baiting. But it seems to us thor oughly disgusting that officials of the United States Government should deliberately or unwittingly play the game of a foreign organisation which circulates subversive attacks against the United States. It seems to me that Government employes could be better employed attending to Gov ernment business.

Tryon St 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 tables. PATRONIZE JOURNAL ADVERTISERS F. H. McGuigan, Clerks Organizer, Making Progress F. H.
