j Ii Common Cae. U. S. Aid I
.1 -A For Russia.
The United States government of
ficially recognizes that the strength
ening of the armed resistance of the
s. Soviet Union to the attack of Ger
many "is in the interest of the na-
' tional defense of the United States,"
- because the attack threatens the se
curity and independence of all na
tions. Upon the basis of this conclusion,
the United States has formally com
mitted itself to supply the Sovie
Union with military weapons and
' 1 supplies to give "favorable consider
ation" to transporting them in A
merican ships. Because of the Neu
trality Act, shipments could be made
only across the Pacific and it was
' (tacitly admitted by officials that any
attempt by Japan, Germany's Far
Eastern partner, to interfere wltn
American vessels would be met.
"f The American policy was express
ed in a letter from Acting Secretary
of State Welles to Soviet Ambassa
dor Oumansky. Mr. Oumansky's re
ply noted that the Nazi threat "nat
nrallv creates a community of inter
est of national defense" and asserted
that Germany's attack upon Russia
was a threat to the security and in
dependence "of all freedom-loving
The two nations, in cooperating for
,the purpose of establishing the defeat
fat Germany, brushed aside ideologi
cal differences in the organization of
governments and peoples. While the
American Government naturally did
not go as far as the British Govern
i ment whose premier had called his
WSuntry's agreement with Russia an
alliance, the United States made
clear its intention to extend aid to
the Soviet armies upon the same un
limited basis which now applies to
the British. No lease-lend question
is involved because the Soviet will
continue to pay cash for articles
purchased as long as Russian funds
Aiding Farm Families. (Seven Years
Of FSA. Rehabilitation Pays.
Seven years ago, the Government
of the United States, through the
Farm Security Administration, un
dertook the rehabilitation of needy
ftrm families. The purpose of the
program was to help farm families
on or near relief get a new start on
the land and enable them to become
self-supporting, tax-paying citizens.
It is important that readers of this
Irewspaper understand the purpose of
the program and for this reason we
are giving essential facts taken
from rthe recent report of C. D. Bald
win, FSA administrator, who points
out that more than 900,000 farm fam
ilies, who could not get adequate
credit at decent rates from other
sources, have been assisted by the
The Director points out that the
program means- economy for the
Government. The entire cost, includ
ifcg losses and administrative expen
ses, is about $72.00 a year per family.
This is much leas than the cost of re
lief and, in addition, the rehabilita
tion of the farm families enables
them to be permanently self-supporting.
A survey of more than 330,000
standard borrowers shows that the
families increased their average net
income from $480 before Farm Se
curity assistance to $650 during the
1940 crop year. This is a gain of
thirty-five percent and represents an
increased income for the group of
more than $75,000,000.
1 Mr. Baldwin points out that the
net worth, of these same families,
over and above all debts, was in
creased an average of twenty-one
vper cent, or a total of almost $80,-
000,000. This increased purchasing
. power, he says, naturally benefits
merchants and business men in rural
The families have raised their
standards of living considerably by
1 producing more vegetables, milk,
, meat and fruit for home consump
n tion. In 1940, the average family on
( the rehabilitation program raised
,' $264 worth of foodstuffs for home
use. This compares with $163 wortn
the year before coming on the pro
gram. The improved diet has re
suited in better health. The pro
gram also places special emphasis
on sanitation measures, such as pro
tected water supplies, screened hous-
, es and sanitary privies.
. Approximately $570,000,000 has
been loaned for rehabilitation work
and although much of this will not
fall due for four or five years, near
ly,;. $200,000,000 in principal and in-
, MnSb has already been paid. OJ!fi
Ci&ls estimate that about eighty per
cent of all loans will be repaid with
interest. Losses have been concen
trated in areas of the Great Plains
rich suffered severe and repeated
Mmghtfl. Encouragingly, Mr. Bald
win reports that 122,000 ' borrowers
have already paid their loans in full.
' In concluding his report, Mr. Bald
win calls -the. V repayment record
"truly remarkable" in - view of the
fact that the borrowers have been
considered' unfavorable , risks .when
judged by normal business standards.
The record, ha says, proves an eager
ness to taake' good and the regrets
t-t tack of funds makes it impossi
ble 'to extend the rehabilitation pro
gru n to more "than 642,000 families
who are eligible - and in need of as

Army Test Planes, Extensive
That the United States Army is
keenly following the developments of
modern warfare is seen in the an
nouncement that 1,000 warplanes will
be used in extensive manouvers this
Fall. Coordination of ground and air
forces will be stressed in "the war
fare" in Louisiana and the Carolinas.
During the month of September,
half a million men of the Second and
Third Armies will go through ex
tensive exercises in Louisiana, and in
November, the First Army manouv
ers will take place in the Carolinas,
The latest combat tactics, as learned
from the war in Europe, will be
tested and applied.
Interesting is the announcement
that the Army will use thirteen auto
giros in an effort to solve the prob
lem of a "flying observation post ' to
observe artillery fires, lines and pro
gress of attack and the disposition of
There are some Americans who
question the cost of extensive man
ouvers involving hundreds of thous
ands of soldiers. It should be appar
ent, however, that it is utterly im
possible to train a large army unless
the units get together on sufficient
scale to adequately test the abilities
of officers to direct the men ano
provide experience in the provision
which must be made for the care,
comfort and well-being of a huge
Vetoes Road Bill On 50-50 Basts
President Roosevelt's veto of the
defense highway construction bill
passed by Congress brings to mind
some of the difficulties connecveo
with the passage of legislation in
It seems that the .President recom
mended a total of $25,000,000 for use
in constructing certain highways in
connection with the defense program,
including strategic network, access
roads and airplane strips adjacent to
When the measure came from Con
gress it apportioned $125,000,000 for
the strategic networks under the
regular Federal-aid road plan. This
authorized the money on a State
matching basis, which divided the
fund among the forty-eight states
upon the basis of population and oth
Mr. Roosevelt, in his veto message,
pointed out that critical deficiencies
in highways and bridges for defense
purposes "cannot be reasonably re
lated to the population of the state
or the other factors which enter In
to the ordinary apportionment." He
said that a congressional act will re
quire far larger appropriations than
if a certain sum is made available
for defense construction without the

Stamps automatically become a Bond
that will pay interest and mature in

People on budgets know values. That's why more and more of them
are switching to Solvenized Gasoline because they get more for their
money. It's a chemical bonus added to good gasoline. It works as you
drive to fight excess carbon and keep your motor cleaner. Yet you get
it at no extra cost.
Doesn't that sound like common sense? Just as two and two make
four, good gasoline plus something extra equals
more for your money. Try it at our stations and see.
