FARMERS, ranchers, dairymen * and all others in the agricultural industry, both in the production and processing fields, must have confi dence in their government . . . must have faith that their government will stand by every commitment made to them in full . . . and go ahead for the fullest production of food stuffs possible. This is the message to agricul ture from Clinton P. Anderson, tall, lanky westerner, and new secretary of agriculture in the administration of President Truman. The new secretary, a rancher farmer-business man, is determined that farmers will Bnot suffer in their patriotic efforts for flcient and over-all to insure adequate huge surplus which will bog down prices Clinton . . . that consumer Anderson subsidies will grad ually be eliminated as upward pressures on prices relax . . . that agreed requirements from agriculture represent obligations which must be carried through . . . that adequate manpower and ma chinery for the farm must be given priority . . . and that the government must take necessary steps to pro vide adequate transportation facili ties to move groups and foodstuffs, perishables and livestock, and the movement of manpower to areas where there is an acute labor short age. This, briefly, is the program which this new, dynamic figure in the de partment of agriculture has set for himself and the agricultural indus try for the immediate months ahead. He is no novice at the job he has undertaken. As chairman of the special committee of the house to investigate food shortages, he trav eled the country from coast to coast, heard innumerable witnesses on all sides of every question and aft er weeks of consideration, he and his committee came up with a set of recommendations, most of which have now been enacted into law. Long Range Program Too And while Anderson is immediate ly concerned with the production of foodstuffs for the war period, he has not lost sight of the long-range pro gram to which the farmer is looking for the postwar years. Mr. An derson will be secretary of agricul ture for the next 3V4 years. There is a probability that 2% and maybe more, of those years will be postwar years. At any rate, with his char acteristic thoroughness, he already has a committee of agricultural ex perts at work studying basic agri cultural problems with the idea of bringing forth a set of recommenda tions for the postwar period. This reporter would say, after an interview with Mr. Anderson, and a study of his work in con gress, that the new secretary has his feet solidly on the ground, that he is not given to going off half-cocked, that he studies ev ery side of a question and that once his mind is made up he will use every resource and all his ability to carry through his program. While he would not commit him self as to the Triple A program, he did say that the Triple A program, with the exception of soil conserva tion, had been pretty well laid on the shelf during these war years and for the postwar period he indi cated that the crop adjustment pro gram would have to be analyzed thoroughly and that he already had a committee at work doing just that. Interested in Parity By congressional action, however, farmers have been guaranteed a price for their products, or most of them, at 90 per cent of parity for two years after the end of the war and Mr. Anderson is particularly in terested in adequate support prices to maintain this price. Furthermore, support prices are not costing the government anything at this time, since prices of commodities are well above the prices set. It is only when commodity prices start falling for any reason, that the support price will hold the farmer up from ruin ous prices. Anderson is not anticipating any huge surpluses, but nevertheless he is taking no chances on the so-called reconversion period when army and other huge government buyers start cut-backs in food purchases. For this reason he is now starting conver sations seeking to taper off, rather than cut-off, army purchases, and lend lease. Consumer subsidies, he looks upon as temporary expediencies, and very temporary at that. He is not in favor of such subsidies as a governmental policy in I peacetime. HO have been the best come dians baseball has known in the last 40 or 50 years? This thought came bounding along after reading A1 Schacht’s merry and in teresting tome known as “G I Had Fun.” A1 Schacht is certainly one of the members of the king pin row. One °* these ■ was Crazy Schmidt, an unconscious hu morist, who pitched for Cincinnati sev * eral decades back. Others include Ar- L ' lie Latham, Rube M j Waddell, Tacks Par- WWM rott P‘ n ß Bodie, Germany Schaefer, JB ~ Nick Altrock, Sher ry Magee, O’Neil of Dizzy Dean the Cardinals and Dizzy Dean. There have been many others but these are the ones who still remain longer in memory. Crazy Schmidt went out to pitch with a glove, a baseball and a note book he carried in his hip pocket. The contents of this book noted the weakness of every man he had pitched against—a high one or a low one—a curve or a fast one. As the batter came to the plate Schmidt would take out the notebook con taining some 100 names to check on his weakness. “What have you got written against Hans Wagner’s name?” one of his teammates once asked. “A base on balls,” Schmidt said. Germany Schaefer was one of the stars in this field. He was then playing second base for Detroit. I recall a game years ago where Schaefer was playing in Cleveland. Around the third inning it began to rain. During the fourth inning it poured. Tommy Connolly was um piring and Germany kept squawk ing to have the game called. Con nolly refused. When the fifth inning opened Con nolly looked around and found Schaefer playing second base with high rubber boots, a raincoat, a Gloucester fisherman’s hat and hold ing a big umbrella over his head. Connolly charged Schaefer with a roar and told him to remove his deep sea make-up. Schaefer refused. “I have a very bad cold,” he told Connolly, “which is now bor dering on pneumonia. If I get rid of my rubber boots, my raincoat and my umbrella I will be in the hospital in less than two hours and I will certainly sue you and the league.” Connolly called the game. Schaefer had a keen, quick wit and could always draw a laugh. Waddell had the Athletics goofy by buying a mockingbird owned by the proprietor of a popcorn and peanut stand that had a whistle attached. All the mockingbird could do was wake up the entire floor shortly after daybreak by singing his only song the song of the peanut whistle, with an added screech. Ping Bodie and Dizzy Dean It was the immortal Ping Bodie with the Yankees who bought a par rot and spent weeks teaching said parrot to keep saying over and over—“ Ping made good” “Ping made good.” But after all, Dizzy Dean in many different ways was the top of them —outside of Schacht. Dizzy was loaded with pranks, as well as pretty homely wit. There was the time in Florida when Dean had reported as a rookie from the Texas league. Jimmy Wil son, the veteran catcher, began missing his silk shirts. Finally Jim my caught Dean bedecked in one of these garments and the idea of a raw rookie wearing his silk shirts was too much to stand. He started in to bawl out Dizzy when the rookie stopped him cold with this comeback: “Now wait just a minute, Jim my,” Dizzy said, “you wouldn’t want the greatest pitcher baseball has ever known to go around a month wearing a single shirt, would you?” Jimmy let him have the shirt. I was walking with Dizzy by a hotel in Bradenton one day when he said he had a phone call to make. He was gone some time. He finally came out wearing a wide grin. “Well,” he said, “I just called up Sam Breadon in St. Louis. I told him I had changed my mind about signing for any $20,000. We had a long hot argument. He threatened to have me thrown out of baseball. We musta argued 20 minutes. Then 1 finally told Sam I had already signed and sent my contract in.” “What was the idea in doing that?” I asked. Dizzy grinned, “I had the charges reversed and H cost Sam $43.” There was also the time on a blistering day in St. Louis, temper ature 112, the crowd melting, when suddenly a wisp of smoke came up in front of the Cardinal bench. There sat Dizzy decked out in a heavy overcoat, warming his hands in front of a fire he had just built. And I still recall his classic re mark after his arm was about gone when he was warming up for the Cubs to pitch a world series game against the Yankees. “How you feeling, Diz,” I asked. “Well,” he said, “I ain’t what I used to be.
