US Defense Plans Are Not Confined To North Atlantic (AP Newsfealures) Washington—American defense plans are by no means confined to the North Atlantic area nor to cooperation only with the North Atlantic Pact nation-'. The U. S. is working as closely as ever with the other American Republics in mutual defense ar rangements. The Inter-American Defense Board has just been re organized. and it' will continue indefinitely to prepare plans for cooperative effort in case any of the 21 American republics is at tacked bv an outside power. The board has new quarters at 2600 16th St. N.W in Washington. In it about 60 military men from all the republics are at work. Chairman of the board is Lt. Gen. Willis D. Crittenberger, former head of the U. S Army’s Carib bean Defense Command. He is also chairman of the military ad visers to the U. S. delegation to the United Nations. He has also just been named deputy representative for the United States on the Military Committee of the North Atlantic Treaty Military Organization. Gen. Omar Bradley is the repre sentative. Since Bradley has full duties as chief of U. S. military forces, it is assumed Crittenberger will be a key man in the new job. The technical work of drawing up military plans is handled by a staff under the direction of an ither American Maj. Gen. Robert L. Walsh, U. S. Air Force. Walsh is also chairman of the Canadian United States Defense Cornmis sioh and of the Joint United States-Brazil Defense Commis sion. The Inter-American Defense Board has been in the business of preparing plans for multi national defense for sueh a long time that its methods and accom plishments are likely to be stu died with considerable interest by i he men now working on North Atlantic defense1 plans.

Creation of the Inter-American ! Board was decided upon in the | dark hour when the Axis powers were a threat to the security of | the Western Hemisphere. Its for mation was directed by the meet ing of Foreign Ministers of the American Republics at Rio de Janerio in January 1942. Military delegations from all the republics met in Washington and on March 30, 1942, sot up the Inter - American Defense Board. It has been in continuous operation ever since, with head quarters here. It has drawn up a voluminous set of detailed plans for collective defense action. The plans are sent to each of the governments when completed. They become binding after the separate governments adopt them. The plans have included such subjects as home defense units, training in the detection of clan destine radio transmissions, ex change of air information, transit of military aircraft, organization and operation of irregular forces, supervision of telecommunica tions, protection of merchant ma W 44444444 44 «4444444444444444WB4t ««44 44444444 444444It U 44 444414444444 •« ^ «•H « « ^ i and Please Make It A Gift from Burnham’s 1 h ■ 3 She would like something personal—a BULOVA or an ELGIN WATCH, DELTAH or MAR* VELLA PEARLS, a beautiful Gift Set by DU BARRY.

Tung Is Good Fit In Diversification Along The Gulf Coast Of Mississippi State College—As a cash crop, n tung orchard fits well into di versified farming programs in south Mississippi, a bulletin re cently published by the Missis sippi Agricultural Experiment Station points out The tung orchard requires lit tle attention during summer months. The principal labor re quirements are for harvesting, curing and marketing, all of which is done during the winter when farmers have little other productive employment Any Size Planting Since no special equipment is required, the farmer may readily undy^take whatever size plant ing he desires. Some growers of small farms have found rows of tung trees along their fences a satisfactory source of additional income, "Tung Culture in Mississippi." Experiment Station Bulletin 464, describes orchard locations, soil types, land preparation, varieties, culture, fertilization, pruning and harvesting. The recommendations are based on nine years of work at the 440-acre experiment tung field, operated by the Mississippi Experiment Station, near Poplar ville. Written by W. Wilson Kilby, experiment station horticultur # -rf-. ‘.rfr*. ,, ■ Vf j ist, and George F. Potter, of the l USDA, the bulletin may be ob tained on request from the stn tion at State College. Seme Combined With Beef Most of the tung trees in Mis sissippi are in large commercial orchards on farms devoted to this single enterprise. In some in stances, beef cattle production is combined with the tung enter prise and at certain seasons the cattle are grazed in the orchards. Care must be exercised, how ever. to see that the cattle are not permitted to damage young trees nor to trample the tung nuts dur ing the fall. O. S.
