Editor Courier-News Blytheville, Arkansas Dear Sir: I know that you always want to know and give expression to both sides of any important public question. That has been one of the traditions of the free press in America. You want to be informed so that you can uphold the policy you decide is best for your community and country, and so you can keep the public correctly informed. My purpose in writing you is to give you some facts on two things: first, the part that the low-income farm families must play in the war food production program, and , second, what the Farm Security Administration is dcing to help those farm families. These facts will, I believe, be of interest to you. There are 6,096,000 farmers in the nation, according to the 1940 census report. In 1939, approximately 48 per cent of the farmers received less than $600 in gross earned income. Today, the Department of Agriculture estimates that there are still 2,000,000 low-income farm families. As you well know, these families have not been producing a surplus of food. The majority of these families could not because thay didn't have what it takes in tools and financing. The United States Department of Agriculture estimates show that the large farmers are almost up to maximum production and that' further increases may bring about a .shortage of farm labor. Already estimates reveal that there will. b« a farm labor shortage this year with attendant wage increases. Realizing that this condition exists, 'President Roosevelt and Secretary of Agriculture Wickard have placed the responsibility for producing a large part or this needed food increase on the small, low-income farmers because these farm families have the labor. Our experience with low-income farm (families indicates that these families can do the work, provided they have help. Most of them do not have enough of the basic production materials or equipment or work stock, and many need more land. They don't have money to buy seed and fertilizer, and many of them need advice and.year-round assistance in. better fanning methods. Yet, with the re- qoired guidance and. credit, this army of small fanners can produce and essential part of the nation's increased food requirements and nt the same time improve their own income and health. Just how much could they produce if they had adequate assistance it 1 they could be reached by a war — „ ...,- „„.,,„ cv.y^v.,^ production-progranv this year?, The today from the Committee on Pub- Bureau of Agricultural Economics lie Relations of the Arkansas Med- sta t&s that they could produce: 16 per cent of the milk, increase. '40. per cent of the eggs.--. 35. per cent of pork and lard. 12 per cent of the peanuts. '6.4 per cent of the soybeans.

"Common Sense Views on Cancer" issued by the medical society in cooperation with the Women's Field Army of the American Society .for the Control of Cancer, whoss enlistment campaign will be conducted during April in tl^e state. ' About one-third of all cancers in women are cancers of the breast. Every lump in the breast or thickening- of ths skin of the breast should be investigated as soon as found. These are more dangerous when they involve the nipple or cause dimpling of the skin wh-sn the brcasr, is moved. Any abnormality of the breast, particularly in a woman past 35, should be carefully investigated. Another third of all cancers of women are thoss of the uterus or womb. The usual alarming symptom is unnatural bleeding from the genital organs, there are other causes of bleeding than cancer, but whatever the cause, it should be investigated. Cancer of the stomach is more common in men than women and gives rise (o increasing degrees of indigestion. If one who has previously had good digestion begins to have persistent or increasing indigestion, he should have an examination. Obviously, it is impossible to describe i lip rarly symptoms of all sorts of cancer because they can arise in any parts of the body. Too, the symptoms which have been mentioned arc Lhos2 which occur early and do no|. in themselves constitute a diagnosis of cancer. They arc given here only that the pirson who observes such conditions in himself cr his friends may lose no time getting proper advice and treatment.

Singers Of Junior High' To Be Presented In Concert At High School Program for the concert of the junior high school glee clubs tonight at 8 o'clock at the high school auditorium was announced today by Mrs. F. Lanier Reed, director of the music organizations. Mrs. Russell Farr is to be accompanist. The program will feature num-- bers by the mixed chorus, boys' glee club and girls' glee club as well as a solo by Grace Jennings, who was to represent the school in the annual district festival if it had been held this year. Since the cancellation of the festival because of transportation difficulties during the emergency, the concert program has been planned in order that the glee clubs could be heard by the public. Their program is as follows: mixed chorus, Berlin's "Any Bonds Today?" for which Harry Carter Farr will be soloist, and Taylor Brahe's "I Passed by Your Window"; boys' glee club, "Stouthearted Men," Romberg, and "Dance, My Comrades", Russian dance song.

The average borower had increased food production from 156 quarts per family before receiving FSA 1 guidance "to 473 quarts in 1941. Milk, consumption jumped from a average of 257 gallons to •505 gallons last year, and meat production increased from 149 pounds to 447 pounds last year. It is reasonable to assume that many of the 53.031 other low-income families -in Arkansas could make a similar record if given proper tools and guidance. These families have a gross income of less than $403 a year,' 'including food raised for home use. Few of these families are now producing for the market or for home consumption. Most of them; are willing, but they lack capital or credit. They must have guidance, an dthey must have more security of tenure. They represent, as we .see it. a gigantic, potential food production power which must be used or become a drag on the war effort. They must produce or they; will continue to absorb some of the food produced by other farmers, which is now needed in the prose- Skunks have the reputation of sating bumblebees and yellow jackets.
