Get Doan£ Pilk, Edson in Washington Nelson Will Report on Big New Drive WASH1NGTON — A big "Spring©-; — Production Drive" is to be launched ' n which soon by Donald M. Nelson's 1942 model streamlined War Production Board. Coming, too, is Nelson's first "Production Communique" which will show just how much progress has been made in arming the country. The report will not tell how many planes and tanks and guns have been manufactured, but by a series of index numbers', based on "the war production for December, 1941, which will be put at 100, the percentage of increase in war production will be indicated. The idea, of course, is to tell the general public just what is being done without revealing detailed military production secrets. This spring production drive, coupled with the first production report since Pearl Harbor, will give the real indication of how effective Nel.':on's one-man control and responsibility for administration of war production has been going. It is just a month since Nelson announced his reorganization. That isn't much time boards can be used for loosening the plants. Although in sandy land, Spanish peanuts nfty be hand pulled.

A cheery dish for cold days— tropical sweet pot a toes the KARO way to convert the country's economics from defense to offense but it is possible even now to poini out definite WPB accomplishments. 1. Most tangible is the fact tha five major industries are being converted from civilian to war production — automobiles, radios, refrigera tors, typewriters and washing machines. The program in the auto industry calls for complete conversioi and civilian production here has been stopped. Severe limitations have beei put on civilian production in all tht others, and WPB is working with War Department to assign these industries definite war production tasks. In refrigerators and radios, dales have set for complete conversion in April. 2. Nelson has completed his reorganization of the old OPM and has shown that the new WPB is not just a shift of names with the same old faces running the show under new billing. There is a different attitude and a new approach to the war production job. This is perhaps intangible, but it can be pointed out that under the old OPM organization the brass hats were always trying to alibi inability to get anything done because their organization was faulty, or because they didn't have the Here's the way to add savor, flavor, and new interest to those \ I old favorites-sweet potatoes! ,iUV«, J'ij Better make two servings for|l>' M (A everybody—they're that good!

He has given the outfit a different tone, pepped it up, improved morale. The word he passes on to his principal assistants now if that if the organization goes sour from here on, no one is to be blamed 3ut the WPB bosses themselves. 3. Procedure has been speeded up and this has been passed on to othei agencies of the government cooperat- ng with the WPB. Just recently, Nelson decided to put in •} new 1200-ton }last furnace for pig iron production on the west coast, awarding the contract to the Henry J. Kaiser interest The contract was cleared through the Defense Plant corporation in 48 hours a record that beat past performances not by days, but by weeks. Contract' for a new steel mill to use this pig iron are hot on the heels of the blast furnace job. That is typical. It mark' a definite break with the old ide; that present steel production capacity is adequate. 4. Nelson gels daily progress report submitted to him every morning. I he sees schedules are not being main tained, a call goes to the divisio head to make 'j personal investigatio and report. Top men are kept jumpiiv around the country taking corks ou of bottlenecks. 5. WPB's Planning division hsi; just been organi/ed with young Rob ert Nathan as chairman. The divisio] has not had time to show its stuff but it is apparently to be more thai a mere brain trust, ga/ing into th r future. It is the intention o give thi: three-man committee specific problems of war production to thinl through and solve. 6. Nelson's recent action in givinf aircraft production A-l-a priorities luting, along with tanks, ordnance and shipping, while designated as a purely organi/ational matter to remove i psychological barrier for aircraft procurement men, was in reality the fist stejj of u much broader revision of the whole system of top ratings on materials priorities. Production schedules, in other words, are being completely recalculated to bring deliveries schedules on raw materials into line with military requirements son finihed products for war. 7. William L. Bait's Materials division will soon have new figures on the over-all requirements and production of aluminum and magnesium. Use High Grade Fertilizer Improvement Association Releases Data for Farmers By standard grade fertilizer is meant those that are. in most common use; such as 4-8-4, 4-8-C, 4-10-4, and 1-12-4. Those grades represent by far the largest tonage of the fertilizers sold in the Southwest for many years and the group gives n reasonable selection to suit the needs of most soils and crops. With the war need for high production and the prospect of high prices for crops, commercial fertilizers afford an opportunity for increased production and increased profits. Good profits come only from high acre yields and every planted aero ought to be made to do its best.- In so doing it not only serves its country in time of need but it also serves its master. Tests conducted in five scattered counties in Arkansas by the Extension Service showed an average increase of 54( pounds of seed cotton from 400 pounds of fertilizer in 25 different tests. Ai present prices of fertilizer and cotton and seed this would be close to $20 per acre net profit from the use of 400 pounds of fertilizer. And this is almost twice as much profit as would be made by an application o 200 pounds per acre which is neai the ordinary application in the Southwest, and on good land with good cul tural conditions even 500 to GOO pounds per acre is still more profitable. With war conditions, circumstance! change weekly and almost daily; bu it is hardly probable that there will be much improvement in time to affec the fertilizer requirements for thi spring's crops. The above information was preparec by the Southwestern Soil Improve ment association and was released by Oliver L. Adams, county agent. Mr. Adams, says that records show that luring the past fiscal year the fol- owing fertilizers were shipped into iempstead county: 510,800 pounds Nitrate of Soda, l',400 pounds Sulphate of Ammonia,'24,800 rounds muriate of Potash, 1,031,000 rounds 45 per cent superphosphate, 54,200 pounds 20 per cent superphos- phate, 127,000 pounds 3-10-3, 392,600 pounds 4-8-4, 2,053,300 pounds 4-8-6, 100,100 pounds 4-12-4, 100,000 pounds other formula and 20,000 pounds cotton seed meal.

Tip on Ways of Increasing Milk Production Rid Dairy Cows of Grubs Hempstead County Agent Advises Hempstond county farmers enn in- crensu production by ridding their dairy cows of cattle grubs, according to Oliver L. Adams, county agent. Grubs can- be controlled, ho said, if every one in a neighborhood will treat their cows. March 1 is the lotest date for treatment. Cattle grubs can bo found by running the luind down the cow's back. If swellings are detected, the cow should be treated, repoi'ts Paul Carrulh, of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. If there arc only n few grubs in the back, the Extension dairyman siiid they mny be squeezed out. If grubs arc numerous, grubs can bo controlled by applying n wash, ninde by mixing 12 ounces of dorris or cube having ;i 5 per cent rotenone content and 2 ounces of neutral soap with one gallon of hot water.

Explaining the time to apply the wash, Carruth said thai when a grub nuts H hole in the hide, it immediately places its spiracles (nose) into the hole for air, ll is at (his stage that the wash should bo applied. The wash should hi: rubbed in wol that KOIIIP mixture gets into every hole. When the grub dies, it will swell. Most of the grubs will push themselves out through holes in the bite. Young stock should be treated in the same manner as rows. Thirty days after treatment the cows should he inspected. If now grub;; have cut through the hide, they should bo treated individually. Carruth said it is wise to kill every grub. Those left will hatch out into heel flies to lay more i-ggs and form more grubs next winter. Sshh! Burglars! ASHEVILLE, N.

Scrap Metal Thrown Away Could Build Destroyer Five hundred pounds of scrap iron qnd steel is wasting away until it is ' re-refiner' into usnble steel on the average Hempstead county farm according to data just released by Earl M. Maitindale, Chairman USDA War Board, from information received from farmers returning scrap metal survey cards. The scrap metal from the 400 farms of Hempstead county based on the average from cards received would just about build u destroyer. According to Mr. Martindale, a schedule for collecting farm scraps from the farms at neighborhood centers will be announced and be in operation late in February. The trucks will in most cases be at one of the neighborhood gins on an arranged Jate, the scraps being weighed on the iin scales. Farmers along roads on 'he routes to the centers may have their scraps on the road and the amount will be estimated to the satisfaction of both parties. Farmers having scrap who have not submitted survey cards should de so at once or the schedule prepared might miss tlieir neighborhood. I These will be Ihe firsl or a complele- 'y new series of estimates on the ultimate demands for raw materials needed to achieve the President's program for 185,000 planes, 120,000 lanks. 55,000 ackack guns and so on, in 'he next two years.
