Our Daily rea Sliced Thin by The Editor - Alex. H. Washburn Zoning Vital for Industry as Well at Housing M. L, Austin, industrial development director 9f the Frisco railroad, reports in a press release from St. Louis that "Lack . of industrial zoning is retarding the industrial development of many communities throughout the nine- state territory served by the Frisco." Continues Mr. Austin: "Industrial zoning is an important adjunct to industrial development, yet in the ordinary municipality it has been my observation that very little attention is being given by the typical city council to this important subject. In all directions one sees non-industrial projects being developed adjacent to ' and in many cases abutting railroad nghls-of-way ..... " One Okhmoma chamber of commerce, Mr. Austin reported in the course o£ a survey, told him that much of the property along its railroads was owned by private individuals "and there is little which can be done to keep that individual from selling this property lor purposes oilier than industrial construction." This complaint from a railroad man himself certainly fortifies Hope's own judgment in setting up the former Southwestern Proving Ground industrial area as a section specifically designed for factory sites. Hope can't be accused of overlooking a wise inove for the cultivation of new industry here, and credit is due both the city government and local business men for making possible the salvage of the former federal properly. They did jointly that very thing the absence of which in most cities causes the Frisco man to be justly critical. If the South as a whole is looking for new factories Southern cities individually have got to be prepared to furnish them sites.

The oft- mentioned but never vary apparent "consumer resistance" was pooh-poohed in some quarters as a cause for the decline. And it was in pork, much more than in beef or lamb, that butchers were posting the lower figures. While retail outlets were cutting prices, the hog market's steady slump came to at least a temporary halt. Prices firmed a bit at most markets yesterday. However, wholesale pork quotations continued to ease at Chicago. Today, however, the Chicago hot market bounced a full dollar a hundred pounds higher at Chicago union stockyards. This followed yesterday's climb of 25 to 75 cents and recovered a good share of the $400 to $5.00 which hog values had lost recently.

We're thinking about presidential campaigns. The conventions are held in late June or early July.

Maybe it was because, in the early agricultural days of our history' this was a reasonably slack time on the farm. At any rate, the parties cling to the tradition. And once the candidates arc chosen, Congress gets restless and wants to head for home to see about the members' own campaigns and help out with the national ticket. So, except for dire emergency or something like Mr. Truman's special session the legislative machinery shuts down for about six months. The candidates, meanwhile, are also immersed in politics. In 10 of the 13 campaigns of the 20th century, one of the candidates has been president. Much of a president- candidate's ;ime and thought is taken up during four months of an election year with the problems of getting re-elected.

She told me that the Red Army had taken over after my departure, and set fire to the institution, in accordance with Stalin's scorched earth policy, at the approach'of the Germans.

The people who remained behind were decimated, maltreated, and robbed by the German "liberators' 1 cS they had never been even by the loathed Communists.

But I never really anticipated such an end on the day October 15. 19-11, when I started in the direc- rcpresenlatives of farmer organizations gave these opinions of the hog-pork price breaks: 1. It's a seasonal matter, but came a little earlier than usual this year. An Agriculture Department official at Chicago said farm- •ers knew the drop was coming, the (as it usually does in November, the ]and had marketed spring pigs the past few weeks in an effort to "beat the break." 2. The meat packers are moving pork quickly. A leading packer spokesman said the industry was going into the "accumulative season", when supplies are built up. But, he said, "nobody wants to hold now and they are pushing pork right out into wholesale channels." 3. Many packing plants are short of help, which makes them less aggressive buyers of live animals than they otherwise would be. A South St. Paul packing plant manager said, "the help shortage in plants is apt to be a factor in the future in lowering prices." 4. The whole thing may just be a temporary flurry. James Elliott, president of the National Association of Retail Meat Dealers, said, "the chances are that after the usual heavy runs at this time of year meat prices will go back to where they were two weeks ago." 5. Consumer resistance was a doubtful factor. Elliott said there was none "to speak of." But an Agriculture Department official at Indianapolis said the housewife had heard so much about bumper crops lowering prices that she was reducing her buying.

But unless world affairs quiet down remarkably in the vears ahead, and unless a great" deal more of a president's responsibilities and duties are delegated than at present, it might seem safer and more efficient to shorten the handshaking and baby-kissing season.

There is a possibility the reported incident might have been part of large-scale Russian air war maneuvers announced for today over the Soviet zone, Berlin and Allied air corridors, including bomber flights. U. S. representatives nt the four- power Berlin air safety center said the air activity announced by the Russians appeared to be the largest since the U. S. and Britain began using the air corridors to supply Soviet-blockaded Berlin. The Russians warned the western powers they plan extensive gunnery drills and parachute jumping, as well as flying drills in the air corridors. Capt. Vincent U. Gookm, U. S. representative at the air safety center, said he had protested to the Russians on two counts— flights by bombers over the Berlin zone and Die gunnery drills.
