"Military might alone is not enough

jeot he is firm in his belief that in
addition to military strength the U. S.
must also use economic assistance, and
provide an example in Democracy at
home in order to fight the growth of
communism throughout the world.
Citing the growth of Communism in
China, Professor Sykes said, the Reds
succeeded mainly because of promises
to devide up the land among the many
people of China who had insufficient
land to provide enough foodstuff for
families. . .
He related that economic aid, such
as providing agricultural assistance,

Sometima Friday
Governor Stevenson Ap-
pears As Popular
Choice Of Many
Deiegates to the National Demo
cratic convention are expected to
nominate the party's 'candidates for
President and Vice President, possi-
My, on Friday. A fight over con-
vention rules developed at the ses- '
sion Monday night and this slowed
down the progress of the conven-
tion. It appeared Tuesday night a
compromise was being worked out
regarding the disagreement which
came up over the rules, however, some
reports stated other delays and fights
may come when the convention adopts
the party platform. 'There appear
ed to be much behind-the-scenes action
over the selection of the presidential
nominee. Governor Adlai Stevenson of
Illinois became the popular choice
following a speech he made to the
convention on Monday but at the same
time reports indicated a movement to
"stop" Stevenson was being attempt
ed. .
Much gossip circulated the conven
tion hall over the man who might re
ceive the support of President Tru
man. Tt was reported the President
had instructed his alternate to the
convention as to his choice for the
nomination but up to Wednesday no
announcement had been made as to
what these instructions might be.
Late Monday night Vice President
Alben Barkley announced he was with
drawing as a candidate for the 1952
nomination. This announcement, ac
cording to reports from Chicago, came
after Barkley had had a conference
with labor leaders who advised Bark
ley their unions could not support him
as the candidate.
A number of southern delegations.
including the one from North Caro
lina, opposed the adoption of a rule
which binds all delegates to the con
vention to support tne nominees of tne
convention ; tothe general election in
November.Thts matter brought on
quite a noor rnjnt on Monday mgnt,
and, some Southern delegations stated
the 'rule was in violation of their state
laws and that they (the delegations)
therefore could not subscribe to the

Local Conservation

When a farmer requests help from

fields, buildings, ditches and roads.
The plan has all the recommended
treatments including drainage sys
tems, woodland and wildlife manage
ment, cover crops and pasture consid
ered by the owner and the technician

a larare amount of technical work is 1
required to make the surveys, prepare
the plans and supervise construction.
Some of the larger Jobs which have
been completed are the Bear Swamp,,
Burnt Mill Creek, Tom White Mill
Pond, New Hope Ditch and Lake Sec
tion Ditch.
