If that eventuates it will bring to America one of the strangest characters in British public life: An attorney for the rich who plugs for the poor. An ardent Church of England man, who became a rabid Socialist A bookish recluse, who became a super soap-boxer. A Socialist who was so Leftist that the party fired him. An envoy to Russia so successcul that the same party thinks of him as a future Labor Prime Minister. Cripps, like his father, the first Bacon Parmoor, is a sample of the high-brows of the upper crust in England, who have in the past twenty years been turning to the Labor party, whic his a Socialist party. Stafford Cripps, born in 1889, is a graduate of Winchester College and University College of London, becoming a barrister of the Middle Temple in 1913. Fourteen years later he could put the coveted letters "K. OUR BOARDING HOUSE with . . . Major Hoople W3JE.NOO TOOTING) TUB AIR.

W. Duggan, director of the southern division of the Triple-A swid in an address to cotton farmers and agricultural workers at n colton insurance meeting at Memphis. "The job is well under wsiy," Duggan continued. Cargoes of food are moving in ever-increasing volume across the Atlantic to Britain. More may be needed for other people as the struggle goes on. Those needs will be supplied. "Our farm production this year will be the largest in our history, even larger than we planned when we first set forth the goals for 1942. We are looking for much heavier demands for some farm products next year and perhaps the year following. The American farmers will meet the test. "One of the reasons why 1 speak with so much confidence on this score is the faith I have in the effectiveness of the national farm program. Designed to pull agriculture out of the pit of depression in peace time, the program is already being geared to the needs of war. Speaking for the AAA, I can say that the whole machinery from top to bottom is now functioning as a unit to further the prosecution of the war on the farm front. I am convinced that the longer we are in the war the more we will come to realize how vital the fram program is to the whole national ec- onmony. I am impatient with the talk heard in certain quarters that now is the time to start whittling away the farm program. It is much nearer the truth to say lhat now, more than ever before, is the time to strengthen the farm program in every detail. All along the line we arc strengthcining the programs for business, for labor and for industry. We can ill afford to neglect or ycakcn agriculture in this time of crisis. "The farmers enter the conflict much better prepared than they were in 1917. They have large reserves of cotton, corn and wheat. They are in a position to meet the most drastic demands of the war without doing violence to the agriculture plant.

Our | agriculture problem will not be aggravated by wasteful exploitation of .soil resources as it was following the first war." In discussing crop insurance for cotton, Mr. DuRgan said that there arc three fuddamcnlal principals that must be kept in mind in connection with the program. They are: First, it must be soundly, equitably and economically administered. Second, the program rates musl be based on sound insurance principles based on equity and not what the traffic will bear. Third, is the amount of indemnities paid and the method of arriving at the indemnities. We must at all times remember that the farmers, themselves, arc paying the bill for crop insurance and they must be convinced that they are all getting a square deal in the matter of indemnity payments.

One is the woman who snys, "I would like to bo doing SOME kind of war or community welfare work—but I just don't have tlio time." The other is (ho kind of woman who still lias leisure time. The women who arc in stop with the nation's spcudcd-up war effort are those who feel like the woman vth volunteered her services for the 19 Fight Infantile Paralysis Cnmr with the explanation: "1 haven't mucl time. 1 am doing Red Cross work nn I am an air raid warden. 1 have ta' be home when my children return 1 from school each dny. But I wnnt to do what I cnn to help, bccnasoj I have mndc the awful discovery that I have a few IDLE hours in my dayj This is no year for having any frcoi time, although we can't all be doing! war work all of the time." The womtm who thinks she Is loof busy taking cure of her own fnm-j ily lo find time to lake on any war or charily work is still thinking in terms of peace lime. In war lime, it is up to eacii one of us to find the time to contribute in some way to the great national effort. In order lo find the time we mny have to cut out a few of Ihe housekeeping frills and drafl other mem-. bora of the family into doing some; of the house work. Wo may have to' give up Ihc hours we used to fill do- 1 ing nothing (for instance, playing bridge) and substitute work companionship in Hcd Cross headquarters for play companionship. We mMy have to pul our children on llieir own a little more, expecting thorn, as well as the grown-up members of the family, lo cooperate. But if we really want lo, we can find Iho time to do something for the good of some one besides ourselves and our families. As for Ihe woman who has more time than she knows what to do with, well, there's juut no excuse for her any more. Every hour she lias is needed today, and it doesn't lake much searching to find where those idle hours can be put to good account. We should be ashamed today of wasting hours—or nol spending them to the best advantage—as we are of any other kind of waste.

Lived Life of Country Squire j His fees annually ran into six fig- ' urcs. He lived the life of a country, gentleman on an estate in Glouches- lershire. Occasionally, just as doctors sometimes treat poor patients free of charge, Cripps took the cases of pool- men. That led him to investigating why ther ewas poverty, and in 1929 he formally joined the Labor party, thinking its principles held the best hope for the under-dogs of society. In later years he said he wanted to fight "British country gentleman Fascism." He was elected to Parliament for East Bristol as Laborite, and soon made his mark in the House of Commons. For a brief period, 1930-31, he was Solicitor General. As the years passed, Sir Stafford zecame more and more an ardent admirer of Soviet Russia and, in consequence, more of a Leftlist in the Labor party. So much so that the executives of that party formally ex- dpmmuniculed him. But he went right on. His special target, however, was the late Neville Chamberlain, then Tory Prime Minister. Constantly he attacked him as the great appeaser, who played up to a German who was bound to be a foe, and who ignored a Russia that might be a powerful friend. After the war broke out and after Chamberlain fell, Prime Miinster Churchill named him as Ambassador to Russia. Cripps did not wean Russia away from its neutrality pact with Germany. Hitler did that himself by tearing u pthe pact and making war upon Ihe Soviet. But it was Cripps who largely convinced Stalin that the Britain of Churchill was a radically diferent thing from the Britain of Chamberlain. The Russians trusted him, because they knew how he had batllec for them. Oddly enough, though still excommunicated, the Labor party looks to him for future leadership. Prominent labor leaders, whom this writer knew in England and who have been on visits to this country lately have al told me that when and if the Laboi party ever assumes control of the government, Cripps will be the best bet for Premier. As a profound lawyer, polished man of the world, keen debater and fighting orator, they said the ranks of Itibor outside of London favorec Crippd fur chieftain.
