WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 1942 BLYTIIKVILLE, '(ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE EDSON IN WASHINGTON By PETER EDSON P Courier) News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, April 22.—Paraphrasing a Will Rogers crack of the last war, what Washington needs is more women who will do anything 1 for the cause except marry n co-ordinat.or, The way Will said it was that some girl "confessed she'd do anything for her country except marry a second lieutenant." But that was the last war. which was won by second lieutenants, and in this one the question, so far as Washington is concerned, is whether the war at home'can be won by co-ordinators or will it be czars? Don't call them commissars yet. Commissars are still supposed to be nasty men. The drift in Washington since the war began has been away from the co-ordinator and toward the sequently no real authority. It has been reported BEW would like to absorb Lease-Lend and others. A few new top jobs in Washington are in the making, however, and whether they are to be run by co-ordinators or czars may make a lot of difference. There is to be a new top organization to head up all the agencies dealing with food, and a new organization to direct the information services, and a new organization to direct manpower mobilization. Discussing the manpower mobilization, the Presiednt has indicated he is debating whether a new setup will be created or whether supervision over the old agencies may be possible through a small co-ordinating commitu- Half a dozen existing departments now have their mitts in the manpower melange, Department ot idea that what the country needs j Labor.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN Anything may come out of the istrator, John B. Blandford Jr., who heads a National Housing Authority has say-so. Lieut.-Gen. William S. Knudsen was little more than a co-orclinator when he was head of the late OPM, reorganization of government information service. Army and Navy though his title was' co-director, i apparently will be left autonomous. Either way, he had no authority and but how all the others can or will ' be pulled together, no one has yet decided. Creation of a single agency to in his place today there is the War Production Board with a boss, Donald M. Nelson. WHAT'S IN A NAME? In addition, there are several high-up administrative jobs run by co-ordinatcrs, though they aren't called - that. Archibald MacLeish is director of the Office of Facts and Figures, but has no authority and the best he ca'n do is try to co-ordinate the dozens of non-military, government information services all over Washington.

Currently, Lease-Lend administration, Board of Economic Warfare, Department of Agriculture, Price Administration, Civilian Supply and the WPB have fingers in the big meat and vegetable pie. All these agencies try to work together when their interests conflict. and liaison men between agencies are everywhere, trying to keep everyone informed on what everyone else is doing. But it's a big government, and to be guilty of to been exactly Utopian or symbolic of the perfect statecraft. Maybe more bosses are needed. * * * TRUCK PATCH Senator Truman of Missouri says private motorists need have no fear of having their cars commander red or tires confiscated.. .But he adds, "No one can foretell what might happen as a last resort in wartimes."...

J. Pickren. county extension! agent. Long-time studies conducted by the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture on dates of planting corn show that no best date for planting corn can be determined in advance, because yields of corn are dependent to a large extent on weather conditions, which vary from year to year- Tests conducted at the College's Branch Experiment Station show that in 1928 the best yields with Paymaster were obtained from a planting made on April 15. The yield was 59.1 bushels per acre. Plantings made on May 15 yielded 35.4 bushels per acre, while June 1 plantings yielded 45.7 bushels per acre. In 1934. however, the results were entirely different. The June 1 planting led with a yield of 35. 2 bushels per acre, while the May 15 and April 15 planting gave 20.7 and 19.1 bushels per acre, respectively. The May 15 planting was best in 1933 with u yield of 31.G bushels per acre, compared \vith 21.9 bushels per acre for the June 1 planting and 23.6 bushels per acre for the April 15 planting. Similar results, which have been obtained at the other locations where dates of planting tesis have been conducted, prove that the most practical way of insuring a corn crop is to divide the acreage to bo planted into nt least three parts: one part to be planted early, one part, to bo planted late, and the third part to- be planted at an intermediate dale, the county agent .srtid.
