( ,w Secretary of the Treasury Henry Stilwell, head of the Army Ground F “Here’s Your Infantry” show in connect An all overseas-veterans company of doughboys back from the Philip pines, Germany, France and Italy, will go on tour in Maryland with a “Here’s Your Infantry,” show staged in con nection with the Seventh War Loan Drive which opened May 14. Twenty-eight demonstration teams, trained for this exhibition at Fort Benning, Ga., will give the United States its first close-up of their com bat Infantryman and of the tools he uses in battle. The company to come here will include a number of Mary land men. There will be three phases of the Infantry exhibition, the preparation for battle, the assault on a Japanese pillbox, and the exhibit of infantry weapons and equipment. In a living tableau, an infantry rifle squad will be assembled and equipped for battle and the squad will be reinforced by the basic weapons on which the rifleman can call. A jungle assault team, reinforced with machine guns, bazooka, flame throwers and other infantry weapons, will seize and destroy a Japanese pill box with flame throwers, live . blank firing, hand grenades and demolitions. Machine guns, rifles, sniper rifles, tommy guns, mortars, the rocket lauficher, flame thrower and other weapons, clothing and equipment, ra tions and first-aid kits will b? avail able for inspection.. Expert infantry men will be on hand to make expla nations and answer questions. RATES ON PHONE CALLS BEYOND 790 MILES CUT The American Telephone and Tele graph Company announced last week that reductions amounting to $21,- 000,000 annually for calls over dis tances of more than 790 miles had been agreed upon with the Federal Communications Commission. The re ductions will be effective July 1, the company said. Calls• between New York and San Francisco will be re duced from $4 'to $2.50, and rates be tween New York and Denver will be cut from $3.25 to $2.35. Walter S. Gifford, president, said the FCC had ruled the Company’s inter-state earnings produced a re turn greater than couild be justified.

Treasury Department i _ “HOW ABOUT A VACATION?” There has been much discussion, both public and private, about the value of vacations and their place in a war-torn world. Many argue that our first thought should be of win ning the war, and that not until that day should vacations be considered. What many of them overlook, in the heat of their own justified patriot ism, is the proven fact that produc tion drops when there is no time-off —'that with the end of hostilities we must be ready and able to recon struct the shattered world —that the boys on the front lines are looking to us at home to be the sarong, fit re constnuctionists to whom they can say, “Our part is done, now it is up to you.” Sportsmen in the country are do ing a few things to help 'the war ef fort even though they do work in a restful day or two of fishing or hunt ing every now and then. Most of them work at more than one job, help farmers and other organizations when needed. They have Victory Gar dens. They buy War Bonds and keep them. Their organizations are re sponsible for boys going into the Service instead of the Penitentiary. Their wives help the Red Cross and clothing problems. I think we need the resit and that it will help us to carry on. Those of us who know and love the outdoors are convinced of the un rivaled benefits of fishing and hunt ing. A day in the* open with rod and reel—a night of sound sleep—an eas ing of the rush and hurry and men tal overtiredness brought forth by hardl, grinding war work in offices and factories —these are what keep men alert and fi't, and fit men fight harder, work longer, accomplish more. - - o COUNTY ALIEN PINED FOR HAVING RIFLE Fred Frey, thirty-nine, Quarry ville, Pa., an alien, charged with pos sessing a firearm, a violation under the State Game Laws, was fined $25 and costs following a hearing before Alderman Wetzel.

Treasury Department HP* LOOKING So AHEAD fUSjmn GEORGE S. BENSON President—Harding College China’s Future Farmers in the United States made up 72% of the whole nation’s population back in 1820. That was just half-way between the invention of the iron plow and the mechanical reaper for small grain crops. Only 23% of our people live on farms now. China still has the “good old days” if you like that kind. Some 80% of her people are farmers even yet. If an American farmer’s hired man earned 50 <1 a day In 1820 he had to be a good one. The farmer was not to blame. In order to pay better wages he had to get better prices for what his hired man pro duced, or manage some way for the worker to produce more. Even then both developments had begun. The plow and the reaper improved farm income and farm wages also. Supply and Demand Using improved machinery one workman could do the work three had done with crude tools, so two out of three farm hands eventually quit the farm. Some of them went to work at transportation, taking farm products to cities where there were quick markets. Others got jobs in factories making desirable things to sell to the farmers who, by this time, had quite a little money to spend. The two farm workers out of three who left the farm did not quit using farm products. Wherever they worked they bought and consumed farm produce, also made more prof itable work for people in transpor tation. This is a simple outline of the growth of American prosperity, and it is a rough sketch of what must take place in China, starting after the war, if China is to prosper. A Unification Plan High-brow students of political economy talk about “social, political and economic unification of China.” Those are 35-cent words, trying to say that China is all broken up and needs to be made one. Nothing that is broken can be welded again until the pieces are brought close togeth er. China’s dismembered parts need to be brought close together; close in time; close in spirit. China already has everything needed to live well: livestock and grain, timber and fiber, coal and oil, iron and copper. China has supply and demand also—4so million people anxious to earn more and live bet ter. One trouble is, there are 360 million farmers when 12 million with good tools would be enough. There is much other work to do: ore to mine, timber to cut, roads to build. Hidden Treasures Roads will bring the empire’s far flung segments near in time. Busi ness dealings will create mutual confidence and make China’s remote tribes close in spirit. There is money in the Orient—most of it hid den, but it’s there. More, much more will come from other lands as soon as investors learn of the empire’s rich resources and great markets. Only fear of robbery and fraud can keep it away. These fears can be removed by a strong central government, able to maintain order and security for in vestment at home, and able to com mand the respect of other world powers. Chiang Kai-Shek has prom ised these things for postwar years and rebel rulers already are learn ing to trust him and work with him. The United States should help him, for China is America’s natural ally in the East, for mutual profit in time of peace and mutual protec i*i°n * Ume of war. 4-H CANNING CROP CONTEST A Maryland 4-H Club canning crops contest will be sponsored this summer by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in cooperation with the 4-H Club and horticultural departments of the University of Maryland Exten sion Service, together with canners in the territories involved. This an nouncement was made by Mylo S. Downey, state boys' club agent at 'the University of Maryland. The project will be handled as part of a state-wide 4-H Club Canning Crops program. Its purpose is to pro mote interest in securing good; yields of high quality canning crops among 4-H Club members and to. increase canning crops production in the terri tory served by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad —Alleghany, An n e Arumdel, Bal'limore, Carroll, Cecil, Frederick, Garrett, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, Prince George’s and Washington counties. Any 4-H Club member from the qualified counties may enter the con test if he grows at least one acre of either peas, tomatoes, or sweet corn for canning, Downey said. He may enter all three of these crops if he wishes, provided he grows an acre of each. The yield of his best crop will be used in determining contest winners. Club acres will be consider ed as the total canning crop acreage of the enrolled crop on the farm, and only one elulb member will be eli gible for awards from than acreage. A completed 4-H Club record book, including sales receipts, must be submitted to the State 4-H Club office by every member completing the pro ject on or before October 1. Winners will be selected on the basis of average yields per acre from 'ihe area entered! in the project. The three eligible crops will be weighted on the basis of approved production ratios in order that they may com pete on an equal basis. Production information will be secured; from the sales receipts submitted by the club members. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad will present SSO to the first-place winner, $25 to the second-place win ner, and sls to the third-place win ner. The winners will be selected by a committee appointed by the state boys’ club agent. SOIL CONSERVATION JOBS FOR VETERANS Conserving the Nation’s basic re sources of soil and waiter offers the veteran a worthy objective and a sat isfying job, says H. H. Bennett, Chief of Soil Conservation Service. “Even if he is not directly inter ested in agricultural work, the veter an will do well to study 'the poten tialities of soil and water conserva tion,” Dr. Bennett advises. “Business men, industrialists, statesmen, civic leaders and educators are taking in creased interests in the problems and techniques of soil conservation. Their appreciation of the work indicates that an understanding of wise land use will be important to young men and women returning to civilian life.” At present the Soil Conservation Service is hiring about 25 veterans a month in addition to 7 or 8 returning o its employ each month from active military duty. “Unless he wishes to take some time for resit or recuperation, the vet eran can get back on his soil conser vation job the day after his dis charge,” the chief conservationist de clares, pointing out that the Service policy is to facilitate immediate re employment of veterans without tak ing advantage of the 30-day leeway normally allowed the employer. Training centers, established by .he Soil Conservation Service in main agricultural areas, primarily for new recruits to soil and water conserva tion work, are giving first priority to returning vetetrans or four or five weeks of orientation and technical retraining. In addition to employment by the Soil Conservation Service under Civ il Service regulations, many kinds of wholesome outdoor work are avail able under direction and sponsorship of more than 1,250 soil conesrvation districts —organized units of local government now covering almost half the farm and range land of the United States. OPA ISSUES WARNING TO SLAUGHTERERS * The Maryland Office of Price Ad ministration has warned all slaugh terers of livestock in non-federally inspected plants, including farm slaughterers, that Meat Control Or der One required registration of all those who slaughtered for sale or transfer by May 14, 1945. All previous permits issued by the War Food Administration have been cancelled. Class 111 slaughterers, resident op erators of farms who slaughtered, or had slaughtered for them, and who transferred less than 6,000 pounds of dressed meat during 1944 must immediately register with their local War Price and Rationing Boards, and receive quota basis and slaugh terer permits. Class 111 slaughterers, the OPA pointed out, are permitted to slaughter and transfer meait de rived from the slaughter of cattle, calves, lamb, sheep and swine during the period from May 14 to June 30, 1945, 50% of the amount (dressed weight basis) that they slaughtered between April 1, 1944 and June 30, 1944. Class II slaughterers must regis ter with the District OPA Office in Baltimore. o Vamoosing Zoo monkeys are called escapees. They certainly made their keepers look like monkeys. E.

MARYLAND PERMITS SELLING GASOLINE UNDER FAIR TRADE LAW On June 1, 1945, House Bill 171, carrying the Amendment recently signed by Governor O’Conor, will be come effective, allowing gasoline to be sold in Maryland under the Fair Trade Law. Harry R. Wainwright, Executive Director of Retail Gasoline Dealers, Inc., who has been leading the move ment since its beginning, believes that this Amendment is a step for ward for the gasoline dealer and of real benefit for the motorist. “I be lieve it will tend to create a steady ind sitaple market, which in turn, should bring about a steady flow of gasoline, thereby reducing costs, as well as the ultimate price to the con sumer,” says Mr. Wainwright. While Mr. Wainwright realizes that during the war gasoline ration ing eliminates many practices com mon before Pearl Harbor, he is look ing ahead to the postwar years. The fact that both Houses at Annapolis passed this Amendment 6y unani mous vote is significant of the merit of this legislation and of the work Mr. Wainwright and the Organiza tion have been doing. “This Amendment allows gasoline to be sold under the Fair Trade Law along with other brarided merchan dise,” stated Mr. Wainwright. “A steady, staple market for any product attracts the type of businessmen who fulfill their obligation to the public. In addition, it helps stop sharp prac aices that occur in distress market conditions, such as substitution of product, dilution with inferior grade products and the evil short measure. The Association feels that this Amendment will help members op erate on sounder business princi ples.” To sum it up, according to Mr. Wainwright, “this Amendment will practically guarantee to the public the product as it is manufactured and advertised by the owner of 'the brand name, and consequently, the motor car owner will receive full quality and full measure at the ■ lowest rea sonable retail price.” ■ o CHRISTIAN SCIENCE SERVICES “Soul and Body” will be the sub ject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sun-, day, May 27. The Golden Text will be from Psalms 104:1 —“Bless 'the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honor and) majesty.” Among the citations comprising the Lesson-Sermon will be the fol lowing from the Bible—Psalms 84:1 —“How amiable are 'thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!” o The “1945 Maryland Spray Calen dar for Apples and Peaches,” Bulle tin No. 105 of the University of Maryland Extension Service is now available. Copies can be obtained by writing to the University at College Park or to your county agricultural agent. Adolf was cruel to the last. Look at the headaches he left to his suc cessor.
