H. Riley, Director of the State Depart ment of Health. To make his asser tion more convincing Dr. Riley quot ed this statement of the Depart ment’s Nutritionist concerning nutri. tionally adequate substitutes for scarce foods. “Although the wheat, fats and oils so desperately needed by the starving nations will not be available here in the usual quanttiies, the markets can supply suitable substitutes,” the nu tritionist believes. “They can provide the needed food 1 values, add welcome variety to meals and, at the same time, conserve the scarce foods. ‘‘Oatmeal is a nourishing cereal grain to take the place of wheat. The protein value of the food is increas ed when a bowl of oatmeal is served with whole milk or when oatmeal is used in cookies containing eggs or added to a meat loaf. It may also be used instead of some of the wheat flour to make nutritious bread and muffins. Oatmeal should be cooked quickly to save Vitamin B. “Cornmeal can also be substituted for part of the flour in recipes. Corn bread is delicious covered with creamed chicken and served with a green vegetable and a potato boiled whole in its skin. “Fresh fruits are recommended for dessertE. They can be used instead of cakes, pies and other sweets con taining wheat. All i leftover stale bread could be used in puddings. “If meat is hard to obtain use more milk, eggs, poultry, fish and cheese. “As is generally known, fats and oils are desperately needed. Every ounce of ‘used’ fat—extra on meat, bacon fat, chicken fat —should be saved and used. When possible foods should be baked, broiled or boiled instead of fried. Homemade salad dressing can be 'used, and lemon juice or vinegar can take the place of French dressing.” . o Appealing the churches of the Uni ted States for generous gifts of food and clothing for the direct and indi rect victims of war the world over, the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America said: “It is hu man greed and human ignorance which keep the larder bare for hun dreds of millions. The fellowship of starvation can but prepare the way for anarchy and desolation more ter rible than war itself. When countless homes are blasted and destroyed, then bitterness eats corrosively at the protective walls of brotherhood. In the spiritual vacuum left by war fresh wars of hate boil up to engulf new victims. Thus hope becomes as deep a need as bread. The rebuilding of life andi hope in Europe and Asia and Africa calls not alone for mater ial gifts of food and clothes and for the physical reconstruction of church institutions. It awaits as well such resurgence of the life of the spirit as will cause the churches to bring -o bear upon the problems and issues of our time the penetrating insights of the Christian gospel.” o More than 2,000 tons of flour, canned food, dried milk, Christmas packages, shoes and clothing—valu ed at more than $2,000,000 —has been shipped to needy parts of the world during the past six months by Protestant church people and organi zations from the depots of the Church Committee on Overseas Re lief and Reconstruction, it is reported by the Rev. Vinton E. Ziegler, in charge of shipments. This, he says, is in addition to a still greater quan tity sent by local churches and de. nominations direct. Of the total ma terials sent, that to Belgium . was valued at $44,478; to Finland, $37,- 202; France, $163,174; Germany, $318,407; Greece, $206,519; Hol land, $359,450; Italy, $233,573; Norway, $16,000; Poland, $78,739; the World Council (for Central Eur ope), $82,335; Burma, $47,660; China, $450,497; the Philippines, $80,370; Siam, $20,204; Malaya, $2,112. Forest air is much more free from bacteria of all kinds than is the air just outside the forest. According to the Encyclopdaedla Britannica, there are generally 23 to 28 per cent fewer bacteria in the forest air, since the foliage acts as a kind of filter, retain ing dlust and other particles in the air. The bacteria on the leaves are then readily killed by exposure to the sun. A skeleton estimated to be 4000 years old has been found in Britain. U. S. PERSONNEL MEN LOANED TO STATE FOR HOSPITAL STUDY Two experienced personnel officers from the Occupational Analysis Divi sion of the United States Employ ment Service are now engaged in making a survey of empldyment prac tices in the State’s mental institu tions, Governor Herbert R. O’Conor has revealed. The two personnel offi cers were loaned to the State, he said, following a request to Bernard It. Ahlman, head of the Occupational Analysis Divivsion. Their arrival marks another effort by the State to solve the baffling problem of secur ing. adequate personnel to staff and operate the five mental hospitals un der the Board of Mental Hygiene. In stating that the first report of the visitors is due this week, Gover nor O’Conor declared: "We are ex ceedingly hopeful that as a result of the very thorough studies now being made of personnel practices and re. qiiirenunts in the institutions, we will find a w'ay through which the present admittedly inadequate per sonnel of these institutions may oe brought up to adequate strength. “In the aggregate, the State has been able to maintain the institution staffs at only 60 percent of the total number for which financial provision was made, and in the very important matter of doctors, nurses and hospi tal attendants, the present staffs at the five hospitals represent only 55 percent of the number deemed neces sary for adequate operation. This situation has developed through the war years despite extraordinary ef forts by the hospital authorities, of ten in direct cooperation with the State administration. “In February of 1942, the Institu tion employees were raised $lO per month. The following year, the new Standard Salary schedule for institu tion employees increased the maxi mum pay another sls per month, in addition to which all employees draw ing less than SISOO a year were granted a special bonus of sls a month. Later that year, the Board of Public Works authorized payment of overtime for a work week exceeding 4 8 hours. “In 1945, the base pay scale was raised an additional sls a month and the new State law governing over time pay went into effect. As a result of all these increases, the average pay of hospital attendants and em ployes is now $92.50 per month plus maintenance, an increase of 130 per cent over the base pay in effect in 1938. o THE BUDGET WILL NOT BE BALANCED From time to time a good deal of newspaper space is devoted to the statements of politicians telling how “the Government budget will be bal anced.” President Truman submitted budget figures last January that pro vided for $35,860,000,000 of appro priations for the fiscal year of 1947. The United States Treasury announ ced that it is going to redeem matur ing securities amounting to $3,854,- 500,400 Other ‘‘retirements” of Gov ernment obligations bring the totals ■u/p to approximately 10 billion dol lars. Senator Tydings of Maryland, has been, taking the bull by the horns, in sisting that the spending top of the Government for the next fiscal year must not exceed 31 billion dollars. Senator Byrd, who put Virginia on a sound foundation when he was Gov ernor of that State, is trying to force a system by which Federal expendi tures can be definitely identified. Byrd wants the money and the cred its and securities and debts all count ed so that the totals will show just exactly where matters stand in re gard to income and expense, analysis of surpluses and deficits, souirces and uses of funds. Size it all up, and the conclusion is that the budget will not be balan ced, and the national debt will not be reduced a nickel. MILK IS IN DEMAND During the war, with strong de mands for fluid milk for direct con- : sumption and for manufacturing, the 1 proportion of total milk production i sold in the form of whole milk, in- < creased substantially, the Bureau of I Agricultural Economics reports. For i the United States as a whole, sales of whole milk accounted for 57 percent i of the farm milk production in 1945, < compared with 39 percent in 1935 to i 1939. Sales of cream, on the other hand, amounted to 20 percent in 1945, compared with 30 percent be- i fore the war. < THE MIDLAND JdtfßJf AjL, PRffiAf, 3VXK ?, 164 THE PRESIDENT OFTHJD UNITED STATES By J. E. Jones Washington, D. C., June 3, 1946 At the very top of the crisis growing out of the railroad strike the radio waves carried' the voice of Mr. Tru man, unmistakably proclaiming the authority of "the President of the United States.” Up to that hour Mr. Truman had not met the issues grow ing out of strikes. But when he ap peared before Congress as ‘‘the rep resentative of 140 million people,” and gave his ultimatum to the strik ers as the head of the American Gov ernment, he was immeidf..tely ac claimed, throughout the Nation. There can be no question about this reaction because there were more telegrams, mostly of approval, received at the White House than at any other previous time in history. Even more important, there was a more positive non-partisan show of support from Democrats and Repub lican Congressmen than has been known at any time in more than 15 years. All of which shows that rq- j gardless of politics, the United States is still fundamentally American and not hopelessly lost in political slav- , ery. , The President of the United States took plenty of time before challeng ing the labor union leaders, but he worked pretty fast when he got goln. A pair of ruthless arrogant labor chiefs who had challenged the au thority of the United States Govern- , ment were knocked completely out. Robertson, who heads the Loco motive Firemen and Enginemen, ex pressed his opinion that “anyone pos sessed of an elementary knowledge of labor relations would have known that a strike against the Government was foredoomed to failure.” And Cashen. head of the Switchmen's Union, remarked: “Why should la bor criticize him (the President) for doing the only thing he could do un der the circumstances?” And—in Washington, the most critical locali ty in the United States, parctically the whole population joined in appro val of the President in his role. •* * • Bread And Butter Thousands of citizens go to market looking for bread, butter or margar ine and come away as much discour aged as the old lady who went to the cupboard and found it bare. That is the index to a very big story which i involves the activities and affairs of the Office of Price Administration and associated government “brass hats” in the Administration. The in dications are that in the not very dis tant future the industrial organiza tion and dealers will again be able to set prices on the goods they sell. At the present time OPA is maintaining its own self-pricing plan, but there are a dozen or more important indus tries that have been released from the government formula. Since the country is “inflated” right now a lot of these brainy chaps in the Govern ment are switching around to the idea that the country may eventually restore the old system of open com petition. -* * * Housing The new Veterans’ Emergency Housing Act is a law. It provides for 2,700,000 dwellings during 1946 and 1947, during which time war-time priority and allocation authority for building materials will continue. In all cities, including Washington, D. C., a boom of terrific size has swept away reasonable prices of houses and all buildings. The selling prices havq doubled and re-doubled. The story could be embellished with the same sort of a report regarding farmlands. Your Washington Corres pondent has only one comment and that is: “Buyers Beware!” The Bible is to be produced in col ored motion pictures, 16 mm, size, with a sound track, under arrange ments just completed by the Ameri can Bib.e Society working ih con junction with the Charles Anson Bond Memorial Trust Fund. The first three pictures, now under production, are the Nativity, the Woman of Samaria, and the Parable of the Sow er; this will be followed by 26 pic ures depicting the four Gospel nar ratives. Eventually it is expected that the entire Bible will be filmed in some 150 separate pictures. There will be a new picture each two weeks, and they will be released principally to schools, churches, and local thea-- ters. The sound track will be the ex act text of the King James version of the Bible, with nothing added. ■ ■ o CUBAN SUGAR FORECAST Cuban sugar production for 19 46 was estimated in May at 4.6 million , short tons, according to reports to | the Office of Foreign Agricultural Re- j lations. This is 4 percent less than j an earlier forecast of 4.8 million tons but 18 percent larger than the 194 5 output. The reduced forecast is the result of continued dry weather from November to April. SCHOOL OF COOPERATION Southern States Cooperative, Rich mond, Va., is organizing a School of Cooperation through which it will in struct its employees in the principles of cooperation and in the Southern States program by a systematic study of institutional literature. More than 1300 students are en rolled in this school which will hold annually several hundred sessions of a central, district, and local nature " Apple orchards are often spravid as many as eight times a year in an effort to rid the tree* of peats.

Rein dollar, chairman of the Maryland State Roads Commission, recom mended an increase in the gasoline tax for the sole purpose of rehabili tating and extending the primary road ssystem. Mr. Reiudoilar, in sup port of the proposed increase, stated that our primary roads are “outmod ed and inadequate.” J. P. Lauigan, Executive Secretary of tyie Maryland Petroltum Indus tries Committee, who was present at the hearing, challenged Mr. Reindol lar to tell what surplus the State Roads Commission would have on July Ist, the start of the new fiscal year. Mr. Reindollar replied that the question of surplus had no relation to the request for an increase in tax. Pressed for an answer, llr.. Reiudol lar stated that the surplus will amount to several millions of dollars. After the hearing, Mr. Lanigau made the following comment regard ing the proposed increase: “During the last several months, we have heard a lot about ‘surpluses’ in Mary land. Certainly the State Roads Com mission must have a surplus of road money because spending for road work v.as limited during the war period, while the motorists of Mary land continued to pay gasoline taxes and registration fees in the same amounts during the war period as they paid in the pre-war years of 1936 and 1937. In fact, in 1945 the motorists in Maryland paid in gaso line taxes 51,000,000.00 more than was paid in 1937. Surely, if the mon ey has not been spent, there must be a surplus. a surplus does ex ist, why does the State Roads Com mission want an increase in the gas tax? “Granted that costs of construc tion have increased, so also has the revenue from the gas tax increased. Maryland will receive this year $2,- 500,000 more in gas taxes than was received in 1945. Maryland will also receive many millions in federal aid for highways. And, yet the State Roads Commission pleads that it needs an increase in the gas tax.” . WHO AM I? I am a little thing, with a big meaning. I help everybody.
