The story is eased-in by showing that 65 per cent of all the leather consumed in the United States, plus 10% per cent of the cot. ton and 3.6 per cent of the mohair, is used by automotive plants. That isn’t all, 550,000 bales of cotton goes into textiles; cotton linters for seat pad ding has a value of $610,000; and $2,946,000 worth of wool goes into upholstering and floor coverings; al so $2,192,000 for mohair used in up holstering. The hides of 256,000 cattle, the fats and hair from 36,000 hogs; and a billion and a half dollars worth of sugar cane for solvents, plus $654 800 for soy beans used in oil * t plastics; 1,115,000 bushel* of < i for alcohol, paints and varni** which is added 174,000 flaxseed, which goes through m* chines that turn the products Into paints and soaps. It takes 4,828.200 pounds of turpentine and 18,690 pounds of beeswax to supply the mix tures necessary for the production of cars. o Everybody knows that there is a showdown in the affairs of the Uni ted Nations. Naturally, one cannot kelp but know that the Russians have violated all their pledges, and used all of their power to defeat the lofty aims and purposes of the United States, Great Britain and the other great governments of the earth that have been working to achieve perma nent peace. The American Govern ment, under the leadership of able Secretary of State James F. Byrnes, and backed by Senators Vandenburg and Connally, has done its best to reach agreements with Molotov and Stalin. This delegation of American statesmen who recently returned from the Paris conference have ser ved notice on Russia that we are through with appeasement and that the American delegation will insist on its ‘‘American foreign policy.” It seems possible that Russia may pull out, or be thrown out. o ■ In an appeal to business leaders and industrialists to lay their cards on the table and tell the public all about their problems, some leading commentators are providing prescrip tions. At a recent meeting of business men there was discussion of ways to prevent strikes. An old-school corpor ation president said: “O course we don’t want to try our case in the newspapers.” But he nearly swooned when one of his fellow executives shot back; “Why not? That is what the labor unions have been doing for years and that is why they always win.” One reporter offers this sober com ment: “That’s what more and more business men are saying now-a-days —now that they have a good case, why not tell it better?” That’s what public relations experts are for. The aims of the Food and Agricul tural Organization of the United Na tions is broadly the same as that of the agricultural missionaries sen. into many neglected corners of the world, Dr. H. R. Tolley, chief of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics o i the U. S. Department of Agriculture, recently told a meeting of Agricultur al Missions, Inc., a foundation pro moting this type of missionary woris among all Christian church es, “First ” said Dr. Tolley, “the FAO aims at better diets for all theworld’s people, two-thirds of whom never had enough of the right things to eat. Better diets for families now un dernourished will mean longer life spans, gearter freedom from disease, and the will and energy to lead better rounded and more productive lives. Secondly, the FAO is especially con cerned with the general level of liv ing of food producers—of rural fam ilies. This concern is not confined to increasing the output of farmers who still use primitive methods and to making it possible for them to re ceive better incomes for their labor; it extends to all important aspects of family living, such as medical care,< education and communications.” Fishing is the oldest industry in the World, according to the Encyclo paedia Brltannica. About 190,000 people in the United States work for fisheries and fishery industries. More than 90 per cent of the sea fish land ed in American ports is consumed within 200 miles of the sea. ~ Churclbill is granted a boost in sal ary in his position as opposition lead- ; er.

That this is a national problem has been signified by the National High way Safety Conference called by President Truman. That it is a local problem is evi dent in this and every community by the increasing number of deaths and injuries which are reported almost each week. Some idea of the trend in the ■lumber and severity of automobile f.eidents can be gathered from sta (itles just released in the interest of ; *.ifety by the State Farm Mutual Au • nmobile Insurance Company, wichh writes more automobile protection than the next two largest companies combined, so has a greater cross-sec tion of facts than probably any simi lar organization. All through 1945, and at a highly accelerated rate after V-J Day and the termination of gasoline artioning, the number and severity of automo bile accidents increased, the State Farm Mutual report points out. “In the first quarter of 1946, the company had an increase of 51.3 per cent of claims received over the first quarter of 1945,” the report shows. There were 21 per cent more claims reported in January and February of this year than in November and De cember of 1945. In March the num ber was up by 5.5 per cent over Jan uary and February and 7.5 per cent more claims were paid than in any previous month in the company’s his tory. At the same time the average cost of claims for automobile acci dents has continued to grow. For ex ample, the average 80 percent col lision claim cost 93 per cent more in 1945 than in 1942. While in 1945 the cost of the average claim was the highest in the history of the com pany; in the first quarter of 1946 the average cost was up 18 per cent over 1945. With the average car over 8 years old —with bad breaks on 1 car in 7 with thoughtless drivers ‘‘hitting it uip” on worn tires —accidents involv ing detective equipment have more than doubled today. . . and so in many cases, has the cost of repairing the damage to the automobile — where it is possible to make repairs. All of this in addition to an average of 950,000 people injured or killed each year in traffic accidents. All of this means that even auto mobile ow'ners who are protected by insurance will have to pay more— because in the final essence, the cost of insurance is determined by the amount the insurance company must pay for calims. As every safety agen cy has pointed out, the only remedy for loss of life, loss of the use of your automobile and the penalty of higher insurance rates is careful driving. The remedy rests with the avreage motorist. Unless every auto mobile driver drives more carefully, the report concludes, America will reap the greatest toll of human life in history this year, and financial loss will hit the pocketbook of every car owner. a For some years during the war, the Protestant churches of the Uni ted States maintained three service agencies through which’ the local churches sent relief of various kinds to Europe and to Asia. Now these agencies have been combined into one new group know nas “Church World Service,” with headquarters at 37 East 36th St., New York City. The uniting agencies are: the Church Committee on Overseas Relief and Reconstruction, the Commission for World Council Service, and the Church Committe for Relief in Asia. The group expects to handle and ship during the next four years, food and other relief to the value of $50,000,- 000; while the churches they repre sent will probably expend directly through their missionaries and agen cies another $50,000,000. The Salvation Army has a new world head, designated as the ‘‘Gen eral.” He is Albert W. T. Orsborn, former commissioner and head of the Army’s evangelistic work in Great ■ Britain. General Orsborn has been I associated 1 with the the Army for i fifty of his fifty-nine years. His par- 1 ents were officers in the Army in the ( days of General William Booth, the : founder. He is the leading hymn wri- i ter of the Army, and some 250 of his 1 hymns and songs are sung by Army 3 THE MIDLAND JdtftNAL, FRIDAY, MAY *l, 1044 FARMERS HOLD VP THEIR END By J. E. Jones Washington, D. C., May 27, 1946 —American agriculture is not on a normal basis, due to labor shortages, the lack of farm machinery. Inter ferences from the Federal Govern ment impose artificial restraints on grains, cotton, diairy and food pro ducts and operations of our farms. The land does its part. Men may come, men may go, men may strike, but the land keeps on with produc tion, and agriculture keeps supplies rolling to the markets—despite con fusing systems of control, OPA, and interference by “brass hats,” whose methods challenge the very founda tions of what is called competitive economics. Of course the producers are an xious to keep in step with the aims and principles of our economic life. But how can a farmer toe the mark and obey all the restrictions that are imposed upon him by boards, organ izations and directors that make the charts and enforce them from Wash ington:' Farmland is turning over fast and the average increase in prices is now almost 70 percent above prewar. That’s a higher percentage than in World War I, which brought on a boom that forced thousands of farm ers into bankruptcy. It can happen again. ** * * Sugar—Danger Signal of Inflation! Wherever there is talk of sugar the danger signals of inflation are evident, with indications that sugar prices are being ticketed for substan tial increase. A very important angle of the threatened onward and upward scale of prices for sugar seems to have come to the surface in the past few weeks. The direct increase in the public’s national sugar bill for home consumption has already mounted in to terrifically high figures—but that doesn’t begin to tell the story. When you add to this the volume of sugar also used in pharmaceuticals and in a number of foods bought daily by low-salaried consumers— five-cent candy bars, boxes of crack ers, ice cream, bottled 1 beverages— the Nation’s total increased food bill for sugar this year already reaches staggering sums. This extra money must come out of someone’s pocket—who is to pay it? Unlike many manufacturers of other products who often want to see a retail increase in the price paid for their mercchandise, the producers of the 5-cent sugar-containing foods do not wish to see the pubiic pay more for these articles: these industrial ists insist that they want to maintain the 5-cent retail price which the con sumer pays for their products. They are, therefore, fighting on the side of the public against the inflationary situation which threatens to increase the retail price of these 5-cent sugar containing products. Their recent statements, particu larly in the metropolitan papers, also remind us that sugar, the direct en ergy-producing unit, is found in their products, and that many low-salaried workers depend on being able to buy sugar-containing products for the 5- cents they can afford, in order to keep up their energy and health and well-being; if increeased sugar costs should force these products to high er prices, many low-salaried workers would be hurt thereby. Throughout, the entire duration of the war, these industries, whose sugar-containing products are price fixed by custom, and not by govern ment fiat, have patriotically continu ed to absorb higher prices and mater ial costs, and high taxes, without in creasing their selling price. In addition to the obvious hardship which a general raise in prices of these necessary foods would enforce upon the public, the actual inflation ary cost of sugar in the total national sugar bill would be almost beyond imagination. There are four factors involved —first, the increase paid di rect by the consumer for sugar bought over the counter; second, the increase paid; by the manufacturer for it as an ingredient; third, the in creased price paid by the consumer for the manufactured product; and fourth, the fact that the increased price paid by the consumer for the manufactured product would of ne cessity have to continue beyond the period of high sugar prices. If we don’t want to put our candy bars, boxes of crackers, soft drinks and otner important sugar-contain ing foods, which are a staple and tra ditional part in the American pic ture, beyond the reach of the pur chasing power of the consumer’s nickel, then arbitrary increases in sugar prices should be prevented. -* * • Your Dollars Are Good According to the best authorities the American dollar is not in as bad shape as many people think it is. The production by United States industry is counted upon to stop price infla tion “at some point”—and 1 there is nothing to indicate that our dollars will lose as much as 20 per cent of their present value before things be gin rolling upwards. o Senate should tell the President ! that Pepper’s remarks need' to be 1 taken with a little salt. adherents and by other religious i grops. For his services to the British ] Empire in all parts of the world, he i was decorated with the emblem of Commander of the British Empire in 1943.
