Saved Russia
The Army has released an official
history of Lend-Lease aid to Kusfna w
World War n, which clearly shows
that this aid enabled Russia to stand
im nnder the hammer blows of Hit-
lor. Brmv in 1942. "I
j ,
The book, "".Persian Corridor and Aid
to Russia," is revealing in that it in
dicates that U. S. equipment and ma
terials supplied as many as 150 o 200
Russian divisions in the critical per
iod of the RusSo-KJerman War. J
Lend-Lease aid to Russia amount
ed to more than $8,500,000,000 and
included 14,834 aircraft and 409,526
U. S. manufactured trucks. These
figures are sobering today because of
(Soviet assertions that her soldiers and
factories alone were responsible for
the victory over Germany in World
War H. These figures make it clear
that American Lend-Lease aid spelled
the difference between Russian victory
and Russian defeat.
The NeV Immigration
Law And Politics
In 1924 Congress passed an immi
gration law which reduced the maxi
mum number of immigrants each year
to 150 thousand, fixed a national quo
ta system based on a percentage of
each foreign country's nationals in
the United States as of .1920, and
barred most Asian people from immi
grating into this country. -
Now Congress has passed over
President Truman's veto a new Im
migrant act. Sponsored by Senator
Pat MdCarran of Nevada and Rep.
Francis E. Walters of Pennsylvania,
the act would generally retain the
provisions of the 1924 act on maxi
mum immigration and the quota sys
tem. -:":,,:, t-
In the new law there is no flat ban
against immigration of Asian and
Pacific people. There have been add
ed certain measures to keep out sub
versives and other undesirables, and
the Attorney .General is granted spe
cial powers to deport immigrants for
Communist or Communist-front af
filiation. '
While the new immigration law is
certainly the result of compromises,
it is an improvement over the 1924
act despite President Truman's veto
message in which he said that the act
"would intensify the repressive and
inhumane aspects of our, immigration
procedures.'' '' ,. ' ,
Informed observers in Washington
believe that while the President lost
the fight on immigration policy, , he
has succeeded in presenting in his
veto message the civil right policies
which he expects the Democratic con
vention to endorse and which will un
doubtedly become a fundamental is
sue in the coming election in Novem
ber. '

Political Spending
It seeme that the television indus
try, a most costly method of Politick
ing, will make 1952- a record year in
political expenditures. Amor 7 all the
oOer uninowns in tL!a eloi-on year,
that seems to be asr i
The Republican Party spent 050.-
0C5 for radio and soc vtl-t use of
television in 48. Democrats
pent $750,000 for the same media in
1948. This year, with TV playing
much larger part In the political cam-
paten than m 1948, these totals- will
nrobablv ton a mill km dollars. ' ' -
To get an idea of Che tremendous
cost of television, on need omy ioojc
at the network rate'on the major net
works. A half hour of Class A tiin
between six and eleven P. M., or
Saturday and Sunday afternoons-
cost over $30,000. Ox course, it does,
not take many $30,000 items to run a
political budget up ,'. rather rapidly.
That is why 1952 is expected to be the
record spending year of the country's
political history.
Books On Religion
Lead In Find
Of Publication
Right now publishers are issuing
nore books on religion than on any
other nonaction subjects. Newspaper
syndicates are expanding their re
ligious features because of increasing
public interest Sales of the Bible
have doubled in five years and are
now at an all-time peak. v C
Two top executives, to the public
relations and . advertising fields
brought out these facts in speeches
here., today. . ;y ;;" ;.f-'';;v;-
Arthur Hall. Circulation Director of
the Chicago Daily News, reported, 'A
significant change in reading habits
is under way right now. There is a
tremendous public interest in books
and articles on religion." v
He addressed members of the world
wide circulation sales staff of The
Christian Science Monitor, who met
in connection with the Annual Meet
ing of The Mother Church, The First
Church of Christ, 'Scientist, on Bos
ton. Langley Carleton Keyes, Boston ad
vertising executive and readability ex
pert, cited reasons for the growing
popular interest in religion. , 4. ? ;
"Corruption, chaos, and confusion
are turning many people back to
Jesus' simple teaching," Keyes told
an audience of more than 1500. "Men
want something better than complex
philosophies and confused living. -
"They want religion. They want it
in language they can understand. They
want it the way Jesus taught it More
than anything else, they want prac
tical proof of God's power with men."
Emphasizing "the simple might of
divine ideas, Keyes said that the "in
tellectualism of the few is not the
answer. All men become 'thinkers
when they f are ' reached where they
are by the clear expression of the
truth about God and man." Dr. Keyes
is a PhD. in philology.
The popular interest in religious
features in newspapers was graphi
cally illustrated by Hall. In 1949 the
Chicago Daily News published the life
story of Jesus. This brought a tre
mendous circulation response.
"(No articles published in recent
years created so many new readers,"
Hall said. The articles appeared on
page 1 with a news headline describ
ing each day s installment
'The Daily News also found a series
entitled "What My Religion Means
To Me" to be definitely successful
Hall continued. ' It was written by
local lay members of various denomi
nations. ' various other' newspapers,
including the Detroit Free Press and
the Miami (Fla.) Herald, have also
published such . series with good re
sults. Hall told how the Akron (Ohio)
Beacon Journal has just started a 10-
year series of articles. The subject:
a few verses of the Bible each day.
in the past year distribution of
Bibles by The Christian Science Pub
lishing 'Society has reached an all
time peak. John H. Hoagland, Mana
ger, reported this fact to an audience
of nearly 7,500 at the main Annual
Meeting of The Mother Church on
June 2.
Dusting Peanuts
WEI Increase Yisld
Peanut growers can harvest bigger
yields and make more money on their
crop by applying dust for control of
leafspot diseases, says, J. C, Wells,
plant pathology specialist for - State
College Extension Service.
, Wells advises making the first ap
plication of dust (preferably the copper-sulfur
dust mixture containing 4
per cent metallic coppe plus dusting
sulfur) not later than July 10, at the
rate of 18 to 20 .pounds of dust per
acre. ,
Treatment should ,bt continued at
two-week intervals for a total of three
applications. "Any application washed
off by i rain within 24 hours should
be repeated as soon as weather per

A summary of i the results of 37
demonstrations conducted during the
three-year period 19494951, compar
