The Agricultural Adjustment Ad ministration yesterday defended its action in spending $1,150 toward the expenses of a gathering of colored newspaper editors in Washington early in December arranged for the purpose of obtaining their co-opera tion in acquainting colored farmers with the Government's soil con servation and soil erosion program. Senator Bulkley, Democrat, of Ohio placed in the Congressional Record the letter of H. R. Tolley, adminis trator, explaining the editors’ confer ence. Senator Bulkley said one of his constituents asked him if it were true the Agriculture Department had paid the expenses of the conference to discuss the farm bill, and if so was it justified. Mr. Bulkley sent the inquiry to the Agricultural Adjust ment Administration. Mr. Tolley's reply pointed out that from the beginning of the A. A. A. program representative groups of farmers and others have been consult ed for advice both as to development and administration. He explained I the gathering in question was in line with that policy and added that it seemed fair that the Government should bear the editors' expenses, "since it intended to make use of their suggestions in dealing with prac tical problems of administration,” Mr. Tolley pointed out there are 850.000 colored farm families in the United States, of whom 644,000 are renters and share croppers. He ar gued that soil destruction is probably more acute in the South than in any other area, and that the editors' con ference was arranged with the ad vice of the acting director of the Southern regional division of the A, A. A. The letter declared that Government officials did not take the initiative in discussing the farm bill and said questions concerning it were only answered in a factual way. —--• CELEBRATION PLANNED Murphy, N.

Evidencing the continued interest of local organizations in The Star’s art appreciation campaign, the So ciety of Washington Artists last night received an accounting of this move ment of “art for the public’s sake.” The story of the campaign, its past, present and future, was explained by Robert A. Erwin, reporter for The Star, assigned to promotion of the campaign. He was introduced by Charles Bittinger, noted artist, presi dent of the society and past president of the Arts Club, where last night’s meeting was held. “Nations have been built or de stroyed, and revolutions and inven tions have sprung from the mind and the idea of one man,” Mr. Erwin said. “This movement began with an idea, and the National Committee for Art Appreciation was founded. The man in this case was James L. Wick, an Ohio newspaper publisher, now di rector of the national committee. "Mr. Wick picked up a copy of a magazine one day and was greatly in trigued with its fine color reproduc tions. It was then that he asked himself: ‘Why can't the great works of art be brought within the reach of all the people?’ ” Movement is started. The reporter then told how the movement was started by Mr. Wick with the aid *of artists, art authori ties and public-spirited citizens. "It was decided to present this plan to the country through the newspa pers," he continued, "and The Star took over its sponsorship lor the Washington area. The plan was presented to leaders in the art. civic and educational fields of Washington. Their approval was spontaneous and sincere. They agreed to act as spon sors and to help in other ways. This plan was presented as an educational and cultural project and gained the support and approval of county su perintendents of education and prin cipals in schools all over nearby Mary land and Virginia. "We had the whole-hearted support of th* District Board of Education, and one of the best foundations for the campaign's success was laid when we delivered to several thousand teachers material which introduced the plan and its aims and objects.” Explains Expansion. He explained how the movement progressed and expanded, exerting its force in every walk of life and among all classes of people through exhibi tions, lectures, the staging of living reproductions of color reproductions offered by The Star and the national committee and through weekly radio broadcasts. "The national committee and the newspapers working with it are con ducting a pioneering job,” .he said. “As for The Star's part in W'ashing ton, we are about done. It is up to you to carry on—to enjoy any bene fits that accrue to artists and to help maintain the gains that have been made for art in Washington." Mr. Bittinger is one of the local sponsors of the art project and was one of the radio speakers in its be half early in the camoaicn. : ^ a- ■ ' .,***' •• \5s& # yAyy 4*A* J *'*>j£ cF k>K*^ > </ vs c°ve ^ 4^^' vyV * i Auto Crashes Home, Six Escape Injury Six persons, asleep in two "beds in this room of a house at Knoxville.
