The nation's wartime atomic
program hzj l i . f 22C.
000,000. -It.fcas beea t. izi cr..
siderably since 1343 and construc
tion nc-v underway wi i ost more-
than the ezaire oi:inal (rojeet v i .
Now, on . top of it all, comes Sena-'
tor JBrien Mcliahon, , of Connecticut,
to propose the expenditure of &n addi
tianal 6,000,000,000-a-year for atomic
energy projects. This would be in ad
dition to the production" now" being
made at Hanford and Oak Ridge and
to the plants now under construction
on the Savannah River and near Pa
ducah, Kentucky. rv '-fi
Mr. McHahon says that for this
money, the. United States could arm
all three military services with a vir
tually limitless number of weapons,
. ranging from atonic artillery shells
and tactical atomic bombs, to hydro-
gen super-bombs, capable of deva
stating whole metropolitan areas. He
visualizes, many fantastic kinds of
weapons in production sometime , in
1955 or 1956. : , ; " :
The Connecticut Senator says that
one reason , the Senate added 15,000,
000,000 to the military spending bill
for expansion of . air power was "to
make it certain to all the world that
we have the capacity to deliver the
atomic weapon against any aggres
sor.' .. :-
There is no way for the "average
citizen to know whether such an ex
penditure is wise or not Certainly',
in the present temper of Congress,
almost any proposal, looking to the!
expansion of our armed forces, will
get an appropriation. ; While it may
be necessary, there seems to be a re
luctance to face the facts of life and
realize that the Government must get
the money somewhere to pay for what
Mr. McMahon makes -it plain that
the expansion he proposes will mean
construction of a whole battery of new
works like the four atomic plants
mentioned above. Moreover, he makes
it clear that even if atomic produc
tion is stepped up, the country , will
have to go on stockpiling convention
al arms, even though, dollar for dollar,
he says, "they are hundreds of tunes"
more costly than atomic weapons of
IKE PRESENTS A
PROBLEM TO CONGRESS
General of . the Army Dwight D.
Eisenhower's appeal to congressional
conferees to reconsider drastic cuts in
economic assistance funds may not be
sufficient to persuade Congress to pro
vide the full $1,675,000,000 originally
asked for economic aid in support of
the European Economic Aid program.
General Eisenhower, who is the Su
preme Allied Commander in Europe,
and is now charged with the respon
sibility of welding the defense forces
of the Western world, emphasized the
importance of economic aid to the re
armament objective, saying that these
funds are just as important as mili
tary aid and that from the point of
view of making Western Europe self
sustaining in armaments, it might be
even more important, f r
The strong appeal of the General
puts congressmen in something of -ft
quandary. The House cut the original
estimate to $935,000,000 and the Sen
ate cut it deeper, to $800,500,000. Ob
viously, if the amount was too much,
the cuts are entirely justifiable and if
the full amount is needed, then they
were not justified.
Congress finds itself in another di
lemma, having the alternative of re
ducing expenses or of increasing tax
ation. Certainly, with the election
coming up next year, ft is not conduc
tive to political welfare to levy dras
tic new taxes. On the other hand,
every veteran politician knows that
when taxes are high, and going high
er, it is a good thing to have a record
Since we are not running for public
office, we can express our opinion
rather freely. The appropriation re
quested by General Eisenhower should,
in our view, be restored The expendi
ture of money to speed up the eco
nomic rehabilitation of Western Eur
ope is good business if viewed solely
from the standpoint of. the , United
States. Unless economic recovery oc
curs in Europe, the . Western nations
will not be able to bear their share
of the defense of Europe, either in
money, men or material. The quicker
they assume a fair share of the bur
den, the less of the load will the tax
payers of this country have to carry.
FOR PUBLIC OFFICIALS
Because of repeated charges that
graft "is running rampant" in this
country, President Truman has re
quested Congress to pass a law to
put on the public record exactly how
much money, gifts or loans ' every
top governmental - official receives
each year. : .ip' 'A-;T$?'-
The President thinks that the list
should include Cabinet members, gen
erals, admirals, judges, high-salaried
government employees, members of
Congress and the leading officials ot
both major political parties.
There is some merit in the Presi
dent's suggestion but little prospect
that it will be enthusiastically receiv
ed by the members of Congress. In
fact, chance of passage of the pro
posed measure is extremely doubt
ful. Not only congressmen, but many
others connected with the Federal gov
ernment, are not anxious for their
financial statistics to be revealed.
T7i ?ra o-ad to go a bit further
man u rresioent coukl- unaer tae
W of the land, and suggest that the
. te made applicable to
a-. . Jals throughout -the
Un. States regardless of whether
they t rve states, counties, municipali
ties or o r political subdivisions.
Ki7. rpapers are required to print,
twice , a year, the names of those to
whom they are indebted, as well as
the names of thbsewho own the pub
lication involved.. This is justified on
the ground that the public is entitled
to know the financial interest of the
newspapers which present news and,
theoretically at least, have some in
fluence oh public opinion.'- -r ...
If such a measure is justified in ap
plication to newspapers, it is certain
ly of greater importance in connection
with those, who interpret and enforce
the laws of the country. The sug
gestion of , the President is sound,
regardless of whether it passes Con
gress or not In the long run, now-
ever, there will be a law to bring
about this revelation of the financial
condition of important people.
MAT ENS TAX-FREE
. The Senate voted to end the tax
exemptions heretofore enjoyed by high
officials of the Government and mem
bers of Congress, means, in effect
that their nay will be cut Jby the
amount of the taxes to be paid.
i The Senate .apparently with an eye
to securing passage of the provision,
provided that it would not go into
effect until January of 1952. This
means-that the provision will not af
fect the members of the present Con
gress, with the .exception of Senators
who hold on afte rthat date.
While there is sound logic behind
the action of the Senate, one should
not forget that just a few years ago,
in taking cognizance of the fact that
governmental , officials . were under
paid, 'the Congress decided to provide
certain tax-free allowances -and to
exempt certain salaries. ' If the ac
tion of Congress was right at that
time, it cannot be rivht at the pres
. Control of the peach tree borer in
home fruit gardens should, not be
neglected at this time of year. .The
borer attacks peach trees and plum
trees, especially Japanese plums. It
feeds on the inner layer of bark, the
cambium layer, and the sapwood at
the base of the tree and if it is not
controlled will, seriously weaken the
tree and may Jdll ft.. .
The first sign of borers is usually
a formation of a gum or jelly-like
substance around the base of the tree
at the surface of the ground. Per
haps you have seen this gum around
your peach; trees and did not know
what it was. When I was a boy the
only way we had of controlling the
borer was to dig it out With a sharp
knife. Sometimes we did more dam
age to the tree than the borer did.
In one instance I removed 21 borers
from a single large tree. Needless
to say; the tree did not recover.
We can now control peach tree
borers with certain chemicals without
harming the tree. The best of these
are ethylene dichloride emulsion and
propylene, dichloride emulsion.. Para
dichlorobenzenetmay also be used but
is not as safe as for young trees.
These materials should be used dur
ing October or early November for
satisfactory controls Follow , the
manufacturer's directions, for dilu
tions of the emulsions and ask your
county agent to show you how to ap
ply them. It it is not convenient to
obtain the above chemicals, digging
the borers but with' a knife is still
