Here's what makes the war difficult
A, newspaper headline says: Am
ericans Catapult Ten Miles Inside
Reich," but the fact was that our
soldiers made a three-mile gain. The
ten miles represented the progress of
our troops into Germany for a num
ber of weeks.
Something like four million Am
ericans have forgotten to pay the
United States Treasury the unforgiv
en part of their income tax on 1942
earnings and the Bureau of Internal
Revenue is calling the matter to their
When Congress switched to the so
called pay-as-you-go system it sought
to avoid requiring taxpayers to pay
two years' income tax in a single
year. Consequently, it "forgave" 75
per cent of the tax due on 1942 in
comes, which would have been pay
able in the year 1943.
The one-fourth of the tax was not
forgotten by the government was
made payable in two years, last
(March 15 and the next March 15th.
Some of the defaulting taxpayers are
no doubt confused by the complexi
ties of the vaunted simplification of
income tax processes but they will
have to pay just the same.
To Save Now Is Wise
Roger W. Babson points 'out that
the people of this country are today
spending seventy per cent more than
they did in 1939, although the cost
of essential living has gone up only
twenty per cent.
The statistician says that since
1939, the increase in spending near
ly corresponds with the increase of
the average weekly earnings of our
domestic population and questions
whether this "reflects shrewd family
It ought to be recognized by every
American that we are living in ab
normal years, with a super-abundance
of money, due entirely to the
war-time spending of the govern
ment. If history repeats, there is
ahead, inevitably and unavoidably, a
period of recession, even if it is
caused by nothing more than the ces
sation of unlimited government
Under such circumstances it would
be the part of wisdom for individuals
now enjoying incomes larger than
usual, to make a desperate effort to
save some of the easy money in or
der to be prepared for the tighter
times that will arrive.
Not only will the individual be able
to buy more with the money when
the recession comes, but, by postpon
ing expenditures, he will assist the
government in preventing inflation.
There is a scarcity of certain goods
and, despite the price control, cpn
siderable commerce on the black
market, which flourishes only be
cause Americans are willing to pay
extra-legal prices for immediate pos
session of what they want.
Mr. Babson, suggests that the cost
of essential war-time living has gone
up only twenty per cent. This means
that the buyer must pay today $1.20
for what $1.00 used to buy. If the
expected recession arrives, and prices
go down twenty per cent from what
they were in normal years, the man
who saves $1.20 today will be able to
buy goods to the normal value of
$1.50 in normal times.
Mathematical experts can figure
this out. The increased buying power
amounts to twenty-five per cent on
the' money saved. This is not a small
gain for those who act wisely and
, No more thrilling stories have

men wher fought on Bataan found
themselves again under the Stars and

Farm Safety Rules
Must Be Followed
Emphasizing the fact that keeping
fit on the home front is equally as
important as keeping fit on the war
front, F. S. Sloan, farm labor super
visor for the State College Extension
Service, points out that every farm
worker must recognize and observe
certain essential points in farm
In the first place, he says, no one
should attempt to go out from town
or office to do heavy farm work who
has not first had a thorough physical
check-up to be sure he is fit for the
job. To this, the farm worker must
add the proper amount of sleep each
night, and wise eating habits.
In carrying out the work on the
farm, the new worker should wear
' comfortable clothes loose, sloppy and
ragged clothes are dangerous around
farm machinery. The farm worker
should also learn to work the rignt
way, which includes such simple, but
important details as keeping one's
balance on ladders, avoiding haytime
hazards, practicing safe tractor op
eration and using care in working
Even in carrying out farm repair
jobs, Sloan says, there is a margin of
danger that every farm operator
should recognize. He should put
special emphasis on using the right
tool for every job, using only tools
that are in good condition, and prac
ticing the right procedure, in using
anese. Never have they been more
frustrated than in the long months
when Bataan and Corregidor could
not be relieved. Never have they
been more indignant than when hear
ing of the enemy's treatment of pris
oners in the Philippines. All these
emotions swell up now in the trium
phant return to Manila participated
in by soldiers and reported by news
men who shared the defeat three
But it is not only to Americans and
Filipinos that the Manila story car
ries special meaning. All through
the Far East it is read as a symbol
and a signal of freedom to come. To
the generals in Tokyo it spells col
lapse of their island empire. And
not merely in a military sense. For
the failure of the Japanese to win

, typifiies the evaporation of their
"East Asia Co-Prosperity" dream.
On Javanese farms, in the jungles
of Burma, - around the oil wells of
Sumatra, the news from Manila will
be heard. The return of the Am
ericans and the joy of the Filipinos
will be understood. All Asia will
know that the Japanese have failed
both as conquerors and as' friends.

High Corn Yield
Suggestions for maximum corn
yields, based upon Experiment Sta
tion tests, are given by Dr. E. R.
Collins, in charge of Extension ag
ronomy at State College.
He suggests that the grower take
an acre of good land, normally pro
ducing about 20 or 30 bushels per
acre: have the soil tested for lime,
and anolv lime where recommendea
Lay off 12,446 feet of row, with th
rows 3 feet apart. Prepare a good
seed bed in the usual way. use a
well adapted corn hybrid or a local
variety and plant enough seed to get
the desired stand.
If the corn follows tobacco or cot
ton, use 300 pounds of 6-8-6 or 5-7-6
fertilizer per acre. If the corn is in.
rotation with small grains and le
gumes for seed, or where legumes are
turned under, apply 300 to 500
pounds of either of these fertilizers.
If the com is in rotation with pea
nuts or legumes for hay, apply 300
to 500 pounds of 4-8-8.
The number of plants per acre Is
most important. For yfplds up to 50
bushels, space plants 24 inches in ZVt
foot rows; 50 to 70 bushels, 21
inches; and 75 to 100 bushels, 16
inches. This gives 6,000, 7,200 and
P.uS! plants per acre. .
For yield increases of 25 to 6
bushels per acre, apply 60 to 80
pounds of nitrogen per acre. This
amount of nitrogen can be obtained
in 375 to 500 pounds of nitrate of
soda or 190 to 250 pounds of am
monium nitrate; also, from other
quick acting nitrogen materials.
Where hay or legumes have been
removed, on peanut lands, and on pot
ash deficient soils, apply 100 pounds
of muriate of potash per acre along
with the nitrogen as a topdresser.
Use weeder until corn is 6 inches
high, cultivate shallow and then stop
cultivation, when corn is about 24
feet high. Do not use turning plow
or bull tongue. Determine location
of roots at each cultivation and be
1944 Peanut Croo
i Virtually Sold
Practically all farmers' stock pea
nuts in North Carolina and Virginia
have been sold, according to L. Ma
rion Dilday, farm crops specialist
with the State Department of Agri
culture. "Except for cleaned goods, very
few peanuts are available for ship
ment other than on priority orders
to manufacturers holding contracts
I for peanut products for the armed
I forces, and to candy manufacturers
who must set aside 50 per cent of
j their five-cent candy bars for deliv
ery to men and women in the military
service," said Dilday.
