New Highway Plan For Post-War
Congress has authorized and the
President has signed a bill looking
toward a Federal contribution of
$1,673,250,000 for highway construc
tion in a three-year post-war period.
Authorization by Congress does
not make the money available and it
will be necessary for Congress to
appropriate the cash later. How
ever, it is generally expected that
the appropriation will be made if the
states supply $1,500,000,000 on a 50
50 matching basis.
The plan authorized does not in
clude the trans-continental highway
system about which we heard con
siderable discussion sometime ago.
While the project aroused popular
enthusiasm, its necessity and useful
ness was challenged by some traffic
Much of the congestion of our
highway system is due to the fact
that they run thrqugh congested
urban areas. This means that relief
can be obtained by constructing high
ways to by-pass municipalities and
thus facilitate, through-traffic.
In the long run, such connecting
links would prove a boon to motoriz
ed traffic although there will' be
howls frbmSmunicipalities which seek
to compel Automobiles and trucks to
drive, through their towns.
Bionomic Budget Proposed To
insure Full Employment
Current production of goods and
services is estimated at a rate of
nearly $200,000,000,000 a year, which
is about double the 1929 rate, but
half of present production is war
goods, according to a Senate com
mittee, which adds that "when war
contracts are withdrawn, the danger
is that the entire edifice will topple
A few facts reveal the extent of
the problem. With approximately
38,000,000 persons engaged in non
agricultural employment, it is obvi
ous that if half of the production is
for the war, many of these jobs will
end suddenly. In addition, some
thing like 12,000,000 Americans, now
engaged in fighting services, will be
coming home to find employment. It
is hardly possible that reconversion
to peace-time production, even if in
stantaneous, can take care of the
immediate needs of the potential
workers for employment
Facinir this situation, the War
Contracts Sub-Committee of the
Senate, under the leadership of Sen
ator Murray of Montana, is con
vinced that "mass unemployment will
become a serious threat and the
number of unemployed men and wo
men in this country could easily sur
pass anything that was dreamed of
during the last depression." The
committee suggests a plan to relieve
the situation by providing an eco
nomic suosuiuie lor war contracts.

January, providing that the Presi

This would estimate the total num
ber of jobs needed for full employ- i
ment, the amount of investment and j
expenditures to provide that number
of jobs, and the prospective totals of
investments and expenditures by i
business and other non-Federal
sources. , Tl j
In effect, the committee contem- 1
plates an economic budget to "deal
with the total amount of investment I
and expenditure by groups in the
country consumers, business, state
and local governments, and the Fed- '
eral Government." By weighing
prospective expenditures against ex-1
penditures needed to guarantee full
employment, the stage would be set
for calculating the amount of Fed
eral investment and expenditure ne
cessary to balance the equation.
Senator Murray points out that 1
there should be a general program to !
encourage increased non-Federil in
vestment and expenditure and that,
if this is not sufficient to balance the
economic budget there should be a
program of Federal investment and
expenditure. He does not believe
that we can "just sit around and
wait until people are out of work be
fore we do something about promot
ing employment."
Considerable Agreement At
Dumbarton Oaks
The Dumbarton Oaks Conference
is past history but it represented a
step forward on the part of the
United Nations to frame a world or
ganization based upon mutual co
operation. Not many Americans can tell you
what happened or to what exten the
participating nations managed to
reach agreement. Nevertheless, if
the future peace of the world is an
important item of business for the
nation, every American should make
it his or her business to understand
the course of international events.
The significant thing about the
Dumbarton Oaks Conference is not
that the nations disagreed, to some
extent, as to a member of the secur
ity council participating in a vote re
latin; to a dispute to which the
member might be a party, but. as
President Roosevelt pointed out, thai
encouraging extent of the field ox
agreement between the nations." V'1''
War Eats Into Supply Of Tires,
Munitions And Rockets
The unexpected rate at which tires
are wearing out in Europe is caus-j
ing the Army to increase its demand
for military tires and the WPB will
construct new plants "from the
ground up" to provide 4,000,000 tires
a year, and expand present facilities
to increase production another 6,400,
000 tires.
Due to the sudden military de
mand, emergency action has been
taken to .assure a supply, although
the new plants will not get into pro
duction until late in 1946.
This is the third decision in the
last month to expand beyond previ
ous expectations the production!, of a
critical weapon .,Mjwar equipment.
Small arms ammn) fi was doubled
as of November 2, Ibid on Decem
ber 2nd the WPB&vealed plans for
a $500,000,000 expansion of the
mortar ammunition industry.
In -.addition, it is well known that
large increases have been made in
the production of heavy artillery
shells and rockets. Expenditure of
the former, in the course of the
battle of Europe, proved much higher
than expected and the rapid de
velopment of the latter as a prime
war weapon account,? for the deci
sion to go into large-scale manufac
ture of bigger and better rockets.
Fond Outlook For 1945 Includes
High Crop Goals
Kuod production goals for the na
tion for 1945 have been set as high
as for 1944, the year of the greatest
agiicultural production in the his
tory of the nation.
i This is the statement of Dr. Wil
liam C. Ockey, of the War Food Ad-
. ministration, who says that civilians
j will face more shortages than last
i year, with less meat, chicken, butter,
' sugar, fats and oils available. Civ
ilians will still get all the food they
"require," declares the official, in
cluding plenty of eggs and milk.
! With this forecast before them, it
might be well for every American to
plant and cultivate a garden. This
advice is impractical for many who
live in towns and cities, but millions
of Americans can supplement their
' diet by food raised at home.
, I'. S. In A Dilemma Over Polish
The Polish problem which, for
some reason, arouses many American
publicists, is generally referred to as
a question involving the future of
This is hardly a fair statement be
cause the boundary between Poland
and Russia also involvs the future of
Russia. Certainly, the Russians have
this idea and do not hesitate to point
out that the Poles attacked Russia
for territory in years when the Soviet
was weak.
Few intelligent persons will deny
the fairness of Mr. Churchill's staiP-
that the Russians arp pnt.itlml

interest and sympathy in the post
war collaboration of nations. seem

World War.
The British and Russian govern
ments reached an agreement on the
Polish question without much diffi
culty. Even the British who went to
war when Germany invaded Poland
and who have insisted upon a free
and independent Polish nation are
not inclined to regard the definite
location of a border line as the para
mount question involved.
The position of the United States
has not been very flattering because,
for various reasons, this nation has
not been able to make a clear-cut de
cision as to Poland. The British
rime Minister, in talking to the
nouse ot Commons, found great diffi
Luuy in discussing these matters
because the attitude of the United
States has not been defined with the
precision mis Majesty's government
nas thought wise to use."
The United States Government, it
is clear, is in something of a dilem
ma. Having promulgated and ex
pounded certain principles as to ter
ritorial changes, the nation finds it
self face to face with facts that
make effective support of the prin
ciple impossible.
The statement by the government
that we would agree to whatever the
nations concerned agreed among
themselves is not an answer to the
pressing problem, as any moderately
intelligent school boy knows.

Hybrid Corns Give
Increased Yields
It has been definitely shown that
adapted corn hybrids can materially
increase com yields in North Caro
lina. Tests by the State College
Extension Service last year, in co
operation with the N. C. Crop Im
provement Association, gave in
creases of about 20 bushels per acre
in most cases.
When corn suffered from drought,
the better hybrid corns were out
standing from a drought stand
point and in some instances the in
creases were much larger than 20
bushels per acre.
"Agronomy Suggestions" for Janu
ary, which will be found in the of
fice of the county agent, carries the
latest recommendations on the best
adapted hybrid corns and a short
description of each. North Carolina
is divided into nine areas and special
recommendations are made for each
area for both white and yellow corns.
Hybrid corns do not carry names
but are sold on numbers. For ex
ample, the recommended strains of
white corn for the northwestern sec
tion in the mountains are N. C. T20
and N. C. T8, while in the north
eastern section along the coast the
recommended strains are N. C. 1111,
N. C. 1114 and Tenn. 10.
Some hybrid corns are permitted
by law to be sold in the State while
others are not. Certain other hy
brids, chiefly from outside the State,
cannot legally be offered for sale
either because they have proven in
ferior in Official Variety Tests or
because they have not been thor
oughly tested.
State College specialists suggest
that the grower get the advice of
the county agent before attemping to
grow a hybrid not recommended for
his particular area.
