By BRUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON—While the nation's attention' has been centered on Kmo;)(>an war. major disaster has developed inside the United States. One of the worst autumn drouths on'.«, — Ki-ord has parched farm lands in 30 .'•tale. Confused ma.'iS migrations of I'lricken farm families are beginning in northeastern Texas and in G'klahoinu. The Farm Security Administration reports that llli.OOO families are in- urgent need.

I'liiiies Are as Bud But with anti-aircraft artillery busy >n Ihe ground, there is mi pw'itc for the pi lines' from which the bombs fall. A nastier sight wo never have seen than the way the mu/zlcs'nf those unli-aif-crnft guns follow a plane ncros.s j the sky. It is like n notliing so much •is the way a snake, with head -up lifted, eyes a bird. Observing instruments spread over the ground in a wide triangular formation focus on the plane. The cumulative result of their "seeing eyes" is communicated to a central .sighting mechanism which looks like the upper half of an ice- less refrigerator, he vily studded with dials. This mechanism digo.sl.s the information and together with data which may be supplied from other observers,, transmits it to a dial on the gun. The' gunners simply keep n .sort, of pointer on the gun following the sighting dial, ml the muzzle creeps across the sky, spitting three-inch shells at the!] rate of one every two seconds. From 11 then on the clear-blue air about the i plane is a' thick mixture of flying! shell fragments. Three targets towed across the sky in simulation of an ! enemy irplane were shredded by shll ; fire. ' j In turn, two tanks, armed with ma- | chine guns and small cannon, bounded-i across a ditchy field pouring a silvery j chain of bullets into two structures ' pul up to look like machine Run "pill- ( boxes." There is no peace in pill-box- j es. 1 Tanks Arc as Bad ! Yet. on the oilier hand, when a tank ' remotely controlled, was stalled across- the field, a cluster of anti-, tank guns cut loose at it. Thcsv guns, j the army's newest weapon, shoot a j two-pound slug about the size of three ' golf balls laid end to end—if you get • what we mean. The bullet's tail is phosphoros- i cent so that it sails through the air like a redlhot shot, easy for the gunner to follow. In the core of the shell is a bursting charge of powder." The thing will smash through an inch and a half of armor plate, then burst like a rocket. That happened to the tank. Fiery shot raced across the field, glowing like oranges. One of the first shots fired stopped the tank and another piled into its gasoline tank, setting it afiri'. So there i.s no peace in tanks. As a final burst wo saw a IC-iiu-h coast defense gun hurl a 2,1000-poun.l shell across the countryside VVe inspected 14-inch ships armor—heavier than that worn by the ill-fated British battleship Royal Oak. Sixtecn-inch shells had bored a hole through it as easily as you would poke a pencil through a pancake. So there is nn price in battleships. '1 hen we remembered thai our ncw- i" I battleships will shoot nine of tiu'se volley. So there is no peace in a coast defense turret, hen- can a fellow go? the best. But the autumn their hopes. Congressman Wall Doxcy of Mis? sis.sippi, a mt'mber of the drouth committee, says conditions in his district are desperate. "We've got n nearly complete crop failure, not only of cotton but also of corn and garden truck," he says. "The cotton crop isn't running 20 per cent of normal, and we don't have enough corn to feed our chickens until Thanksgiving. Folks down there are selling everything they have just lo get enough to eat." Congressman Francis Case of South Dakota says the drouth in the Black Hills area is the worst ever experienced there. His own district illustrates the spotty nature of the drouth; of its 24 counties, about a third are geting in good crops while another third reported extremely bad conditions—with the rest reporting that they are at least able to «t-l in enough feed for their livestock. Need More Money For Distressed Farm Security Administration, which is making 'grants to distressed families, say it is making grants lo distressed families ,says it is going to need more 'money oon. At the beginning of this fiscal year, it had $118,000,000 for grants and loans—and applications frojn 400,000.families, a far higher total than the money would cover. Since most crop loans are made in December and January, 'm'oney is still was set aside for that purpose is still available and can be drawn on for the drouth emergency; but it will have to be replaced, and the estimate is that the $50,000,000 the congressmen are talking about will be more tooavi talking about will be none too much. If heavy rains coYn'e now they won't undo much of the damage to this fall's crops, but they will help winter wheat planted during the last few weeks. For unless the drouth ends pretly soon the seed won't sprout. Incidentally, the drouth brought an unexpectedly high percentage of compliance with AAA's crop insurance and acreage conlrol program in the wheat belt. Expecting a high war demand next year, many farmers had been refusing lo go in on the .program and were planning to sow lots of winter wheat. The drouth upset their plans, and now there is n rush to get in on the program.
