FACiE 1-01K LOOKING AT WASHINGTON By HUGO S. SIMS, Washington Correspondent New Highway Plan For Post-War Years 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 authorities. 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but half of present production is war goods, according to a Senate com mittee, which adds that "when war contracts are withdrawn, the danger is that the entire edifice will topple over." 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. t .... i i j . ft j j : legislation nas Deen aranea anu i 0 win tie introduced at tne opening oi the new session of Congress in January, providing that the Presi dent shall submit to Congress, on t,a fircf a. f oi o uonui nruuui lion alio eiiiiiioyiiit-'iii budget. 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 Border The Polish problem which, for some reason, arouses many American publicists, is generally referred to as a question involving the future of Poland. 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- ment that the Russians arp pnt.itlml security on their western fron- tjer remier Stalin, while showing interest and sympathy in the post war collaboration of nations. seem , ' "'""" l" '""-ore me oor- TO hp i A iirmmnJ 4 i.1 i be to approximately existed nrior to the fi ret. 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.

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.
