"In The Best Position"
"Agriculture probably is in the
best position it has ever been in to
withstand post-war shocks of ad
justment," declares Ivy W. Diig8an.
Governor of the Farm Credit Ad
ministration, who advises farmers to
keep their assets in a liquid condi
tion. Mr. Duggan warns that present
large funds could touch off a boom
in farm land or be spent on goods
and equipment at excessive prices,
but that farmers will be wise to use
their money for replacements and
improvements in operation and mod
ernization at reasonable prices.
Mr. Duggan warns that clanger oi
inflation inv farm land prices has not
passed and the farmers will do well
to avoid an orgy of land speculation
such as followed the end of the first
Recent activity of Director of War
Mobilization James F. Byrnes indi
cates that the leaders of our war ef
fort are preparing for the possibil
ity that t'.ie struggle in Europe may
be somewhat prolonged.
The sudden demand for increased
production of some war items and
the revised labor rules proming' 'ted
by Mrs. Byrnes indicate very conclu
sively that a serious mistake was
made late last summer in permitting
business leaders to put over the idea
that a partial reconversion could be,
Scarcely a day passes without an
appeal from military men or manu
facturers f war material for addi
tional labor. Recently, Charles E.
Villain, , an otlicial of the General
l',rii,c Company, largely engaged
upon war work, suggested that the
tunc hud come to compel non-essential
inda. t.y to give up labor to es
sential ar industries.
Another industrial leader who
urges me transfer of workers from
less essential jobs to the more im
portant war plants is Eric Johnston,
president of the U. S. Chamber of
Commerce. Mr. Johnston said:
"Our complacency of last summer
and early fall now makes us look a

Kings And Crises
Just as the Greek crisis is cooling
ofr a truce between Britairs Gen
eral Scobie and the E. L. A. S.
forces is now reported the Yugo
slav situation begins to boil.
In the Yugoslav conflict, as in the
Greek, a King is fighting for his
throne. Is he a good King or a bad
one? The answer is that he is only
21 years old now, after nearly four
years of exile. At the age of 17, in
a spot tight enough to try the mettle
of a seasoned monarch, he made a
right decision. He threw his weight
with the forces that revolted against
the Yugoslav Regency's decision to
collaborate with the Nazis. So some
of the credit for Yugoslavia's being
on our side today must stand to Ser
bian Peter's account.
But n:uch has happened to his
country sirce his exile. Cut off from
Allied aid, great numbers of his peo
ple had to learn how to save them
selves. A Croat, Marshal Tito, who
is a Communist and obviously en
joys Russian support, has become the

Census To Include
Farm Labor Study !
The agricultural labor
North Carolina will be
measured by the U. S. Census worK
ers who begin asking farmers ques
tions on January 8. Basic informa
tion on agriculture, including statls
tics on farm acreage, crops, live
stock, farm labor and other items re
lated to farm operations will be ob
tained. . (
Dean I. O. Schaub of State Col
lege, who heads the state advisory
council cooperating with the census
officials, says that a comprehensive
picture of the State's farm labor
force and its yearly cost is to be de
veloped. Questions will be asked as
to the number of farm workers em
ployed at a given date, both paid
and unpaid, including the labor oi
the farm operator, and the farm
work performed by members of the
operator's own family.
The total cash outlay for farm
labor throughout the year will also
be asked. In this connection, infor
mation will be requested on the
number of days on which the farm
operator may have worked off me
farm for pay or profit.
The questions relating to acreage
and production of field crops har
vested during the year will vary

Need More Doctors
Tlieie is a great shortage of doc
tors in the rural areas of North
Carolina; this was true even before
the war, and the situation continues
to grow worse.
The Department ot Rural Sociol
ogy at State College, under the di
rection of Dr. C. Horace Hamilton,
quotes data from the American Med
ical Directory and the N. C. Medical
Society to show that in 1940 only 31
per cent of the doctors of North Ca
rolina were found 'in the areas where
73 per cent of the people lived.
Where one doctor is needed for
each 1,000 people, there was only one
doctor for 5,174 rural people in
North Carolina this year. The situ
ation stacks up like this; the city
areas need all the doctors they have,
and the country districts need about
five times as many doctors as they
Some rural people use city doctors
but Dr. Hamilton points out that 55
per cent of the land area in the
State lies more than five miles from
the town and . cities where doctors
live. "In the day of the automobile
