Fayelie County ASSORTED S 13 JUNE 1937 Kayf.'llo County Leader THIS WEEK —Til Washington With Clinton Davidson Otii' of tin- oikl things in WiisliiiiK- tun Is the ditliTt'iit viewpoints Coiu;t'e.s,> and the While Hou.se tuke on tlu- "Communist situation." It worries both, but for different reasons. Congress likes to ferret out communists in thi-s countrs nnd brim; them up before investicutiin; committees, where they invariably hide behind the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. The Administration take.-* a dim view of the hlde-ancl-i;o-s rk name the lawmakers play. The President thinks Congress i.s wasting its' time when It ought to be paying more attention to such far-away places aa the Far East, the Near Eust, Africa and Eastern Europe. It Is becoming more and more difficult for Mr. Elsenhower to get as much foreign aic out of Congress as he would like. And, every time there Is talk about cutting the defense budget he calls a group of Congressmen to the White House to lecture them. The explanation of those differences may not be hard to llncl. The President assumes that the FBI already knows who the commies ure in this country and i.s watching them. Recently .some Congressmen have boon poking around odd places in the world and gathering their own Information. One of those is Rep. Jamie L. Whltten of Mississippi, a veteran of the Important House Appropriations Committee. He spent two Weeks back of the Iron Cvirtnin as, he says, strictly a tourist, going wherever he wished and talking with whomever he pleased. Some of the things he olxit'i ved and reported give you a pretty good Idea of why not all congressmen roll over and play dead when somebody shouts "the communists are coming." By no stretch of the Imagination could you call Whitten a pro-communist, either before or after his Russian tour. "Frankly," he told us, "we were greatly surprised at many of the things we found. Also, we were surprised at the friendliness of the people toward the United States. In Russia, of course, they are not the government. "The Soviet Union Is largely a 19th century group of republics attempting to compete In a 20th century world. It Is a nation of dirt roads, 35 mlle-per hour trains, few railroads, poor communications, and horse-and-buggy transportation. ""There are a few show-places built to Impress Western visitors, but In most things it la a backward, nation as compared with thu United States. The efficiency In agriculture, and In most light Industry, is at least 50 years behind the U. S. "A disproportionately large amount of farm work Is hand labor, and half or more is performed by women. There Is very little light, power machinery. In cities we saw innumerable middle- aged and older women with homemade brooms, sweeping leavos from the sidewalk, one by one, as they fell." Whltten found that the Russian people do not seem dlssatislled with their life under the present regime, but neither c'.o they appear enthusiastic in their support. "It appears," he said, "that their present system is generally satisfactory to them, since it Is no worse than they've been accustomed to through the centuries." Russia's greatest weakness, Whitten concluded, Is Its' backward and Inefficient agriculture, and lack of transportation. Practically all of the farm land is north of 40 degrees latitude, the same latitude as northern Minnesota. Roads are impassable much of the year. Whatever the ambitions and Intentions of the Russian rulers are, the country certainly could not sustain a long war, Whltten de• Glared. From Prime Minister Mac Millan of Great Britain: "There is no difference between Socialisrr and Communism except this: So cialism is soft, Communism i hard: Socialism is pink, Commun ism is Red. _Socialism gets yoi down bit by bit by a kind o anesthetic (process. It might be called mercy-killing. Communism just knocks you cm th< head." Well Drilling Shawver,WellCo.

When first introduced, color iilms wore very tricky. II Hie picluros wore to look like any- tliiny, lighting and exposure had to bo exactly right. Photographers Iked about color temperatures, degrees Kelvin, and other myste- us matters. Today, color film is as easy lo use as black-and-white. Good color snapshots can bo taken with the simplest cameras. Flash makes it possible to take color pictures indoors and after dark. With new Kodacolor Film the same roll can be used both indoors with flash, and outdoors in sunlight, without fillers or spc cial flashbulbs. In addition, the sharpness and color quality of the film have been improved amazingly. In addition there are films lor color slides, both two-by-lwo and stereo, some of which Ihe photo grapher can process himself if he wishes. We' have all the latest color films, and WP can help you make the best use of Ihem. Come in and lei's talk about it. We're open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday eve nings and on Sundays from 9:OC to 12:00 and 2:30 to 6:30.
