We Get What
Rowland R. Hughes has one of the
toughest and most responsible jobs
in the country Director, Bureau
of the Budget. He recently said:
"A point I wish strongly to empha
size is that this fiscal and budget
task is one which requires team
work. There are thrje distinct par
ties to it: the administration, of
course; the Congress, definitely; but
the public the citizen is eq
ually important. How much can be
done by the administration and the
Congress is primarily dependent
upon the support of public opinion."
Most men in political life keep
their ears to the ground. They try
to give their constituents and the
voters at large what they think is
wanted. To a very great extent, it
is the people who lead and their
representatives in government who
That is certainly true of our fin
ancial affairs as a nation. If we
really want economical government,
we will get it if we want waste-,
ful, paternalistic government, we
will get that. It is true, of course,
that everyone pays lip service to
the cause of governmental economy.
It is equally true that, when the
chips are down, we too often want
all the economy confined to the
other fellow not to us. This
"take it out of his pocket, not mine"
attitude is largely the reason why
it is so enormously difficult to even
moderately reduce nonessential
Here an old axiom applies with

AND FARM MACHINERY
The modern American kitchen is
a miracle of labor-saving conven
ience. Electric ranges, refrigerators,
washers and all manner of other ap
pliances have transformed both the
urban and rural home.
That kitchen, strange as the idea
may seem, wouldn't be possible if
it w eren't for farm machinery

ers produce enough for themselves
and 89 other, To come down to
modern times, in the. past 40 years
farm output has doubled. while
the number of manhoura needed to
achieve the -' enormous production
has Weadily declined. That means
that vast armies of people have been
able to take jobs In industry. They
produce automobiles, stoves, TV sets
and all the thousand and one other
things that make for better living.
To take 'one example, e modem

er still lit the future our soaring
population makes that certain. And
again machinery will make the task
possible and at the same" time leave

Ouflookl For Tohaccol Is
Greenville, North Car",
Weather conditions prevailing
over that section of Eastern North
Carolina from which the Greenville
Tobacco Market draws tobacco for
its auction sales, during the month
qf July have been as follows: '
A relatively dry June was follow
ed by abundant ' rains during the
month of July. Intermittent showers
during the first part of July were
without water or milk being added.
Of course you can't just buy a
bag of meal, dump it in a feeder.
and go off for the week end. Dogs,
unlike humans, actually don't need
variety in their diets and a dog that
has been on one type of feed for
a period of time may not like to
change to another in fact he may
refuse to eat it for a while. Add to
this the fact that if you have been
feeding only once a day your dog
may be inclined to eat all of every
thing put in front of him.
So try feeding the dry meal for a
while when you 'can keep an eye
on results before leaving him. And
naturally, dogs being dogs, you will
probably find that he' tips over his
feed dish, just for fun. A heavy
dish 'will take care of this, or just
attach a light dish to the floor.
