A UOVEIINJIE.NT NITRATE PLANT
There ls u hallie un between the
government und the tlu Font Powder
Company to determine which ?bull
build a great water-power plant to
extract nitrogen from the air for mak
ing explosives. At. present, it looks
as if the powder company?, -will win,
or will at least succeed in killing the
project for a government plant.
If any big enterprise belongs legiti
mately in the flehl of' government
ownership aud operation, the manu
facture of powder would seem to be
long there. And if thc government is
to make Its own powder, it is a logi
cal and natural step to create a plant
for making tue necessary nitrogen or
The need of this raw material at
present ls urgent. Without a more
plentiful supply than we can obtain
from Chile, we cunuot make thc pow
der wo need. Thc present scarcity
also handicaps the lllllng of war or

high price Interferes willi the agri
cultural use of available nitrates for
Granting that it is proper for the

there is an added argument in thc
fact that lt would utilize for the pur-j
POBO water power on navigable
streams belonging to the public.
Most citizens would rather see the na
tion's "white coal" adapted by the
government directly for such a pub
lic purpose than have lt turncu> over
to nome corporation for purely pri
vate use. There ls no question of the
value of water power for extracting
atmospheric nitrogen. Experience
has proved that It ls the Ideal Source
of energy for this new and marvelous
Germany f? at -present getting most
of lier nitrogen from Hie air, and
eventually Cia., whole-world may have
to depend entirely on the atmospheric
supply. The du Pont Powder Com
pany Itself desires a grenit water
power grant for this purpose-a fact
which explains tho active, hostility of
this powerful company and its af
filiated corporations to the govern
ment project. ?.?
FE?EKAL AID FOB Tit ADE
That Uncle Sam should aid thc
? states in establishing and furthering
vocational and. technical education I?
thei conclusion reached by tho Na

port has Just been innd'e by a special
committee, o* which Mr. Frederick A.
Geier of Cincinnati, machine manu
facturer, is bead. Tho report makes
"Liberal Federal appropriations for
promotion of vocational education in
tho Uni tod States.
"Thc Federal appropriations should
be allotted among tho states on a uni

relation to appropriations made by
tho states for like purposes.

The profession of. agriculture has
boen advanced very much by federal
aid.. In this report uimllar help ls
asked for trade and Industry. Tho
I plan ls not to be concerned with pri
vate schools or colleges now giving
technical instruction, but simply to
i extond financial assistance- and en
couragement to schools - which will
roach the great army of children who

I The agricultural extension work ot
tho federal government has been /of
great use to many, and has increased
the country's resources. Widening out
I Uncle Barn's . educational domain to

-seems a natural*enough '.ext move.
