EDSON IN WASHINGTON No Fear Of Farm Surpluses )1V 1'KTKK KDSON Courier News Correspondent Danger that the United States is heading into a period of unmanageable farm surpluses is being played down In Washington ns the same \irnl of n scare that didn't matcrial- ,ze hack in the winter of 1012-43, when some dour prophets were predicting that the country faced fam- ne. What has snsprlsed a good many farm experts in this war is the ability of the United States to consume farm products. More foods and libers have been chewed up by Kin beings, livestock and machines than the economists ever thought possible. Milk consumption Is an example. For years the nutritionists have been telling people that milk was the best food in the .world. TJils wasn't wasted effort, but it didn't do neiirly ns much good towards increasing milk consumption as the increased purchasing power of the country. As soon as people got more money to spend, they started buying more milk. Demand for farm products has been greater than the supply, nil through lire war. Bureau of Agricultural Economics, in its latest "De- nmnd and Price" report, says that this present high demand is to continue, even though there will be big changes in the general business situation after end of the war in Europe. FAitMKllS AM, SET FOR FIKST TWO PEACE YHAKS One thing certain is that the farmer himself doesn't have to worry about farm surpluses for two full calendar years after the declared end of the war. The reason is that the government has assured farmers 90 per cent of parity loans or better on ISC farm products considered essential to the war effort. In establishing these support prices, Congress took the line that it was necessary to give the farmers sufficient incentive to produce all this stuff and to couple of years after Hie war. Hie only solution now known will be some form of marketing or production control and—curiously enough —this is just where the Roosevelt administration came In 13 years ago when there \v«s too much farm production and too lillle coii.-.nmptlon. On the five basic crops—wheat, cotton, corn, rice and tobacco—the framework for marketing controls established in tho early days of the New Deal is still on the books. These controls haven't been used during the war—except on tobacco, to keep it from crowding off the land other more needed farm products. But if, before the May of any year, (lie Secretary of Agriculture shall determine Hint the supply of any of the basic farm crops is greater than the sum of the domestic consumption plus a 30 per cent reserve, he may order u vole among producing fanners on whether to establish crop controls. If more than two- thirds of the farmers voting decide hi favor of controls, then they go In cifcct. Extension of this system of controls to other (linn tlie five basil, crops Is being studied. It Is somc- Ihiiig like tliis that Is counted on to reduce production, if and when tlie surpluses get out of hand. And it doesn't make any difference who gets elected—Dewey or Roosevelt—either will have to face thl toughest of all farm problems.

Orioles Defeat- Colonels, 7-4, In 14th Inning LOUISVILLE, Oct. 9 (OP)— The Baltimore Orioles broke up an overtime pitching battle with three. runs 'In the 14th, to defeat the Louisville Colonels 7 to 4 'yesterday at Louisville in the third game of the little world serics. The victory gives the Orioles, representing the International League, a two-gatnes-lo-one edge over the Colonels of the American Association. Eagles and Redskins Tie.-! In National Pro League iSy United Press The Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Hedskins, early favorites to win the eastern title in the National Professional Football League fought to a 31-all tie at Philadelphia. The western favorites, lithe Green Bay Packers, crushed "the Chicago Cardinal-Pittsburgh Stceler combine 34 to 1 at Green Bay. Wls. The Detroit Tigers downed tile Brooklyn Tigers 19 to M. the New York Giants defeated the Boston -yanks 22 to 10, and the Cleveland Rams trounced the Chicago Bears 19 to 7. the bottom would.not drop out of the market when the war was over, as it did in 1019, causing the financial ruin of hundreds of thousands of farmers. As to what the government will use for money in making loans at these support prices for two years after the end of the war, there will have to 1» additional appropriations when lend-lcasc and military biii'- ing cud. But as Congress lias already authorized this expenditure, few people have any doubt that there will bo the necessary appropriations when needed, even If the cost goes to a couple of billion dollars a year. What the government does with all the surpluses and stockpiles left over at the end of the war is something else again. The government is now authorized to sell surpluses abroad at world market prices, taking a loss if domestic prices are higher. Many war surpluses are eypn now being sold'back to the trade'. But the real solution to the surplus problem is expected to be in increased hume, consumption, anil that brings you right back, to the frequently expressed need for maintaining full employment to keep up purchasing power. IF SURl'UJSES COME, SO WILL'CONTROLS If surpluses do get out of hand a Don't Junk Merchantmen, General Hincs Urges U.S. NEW YORK, Oct. 9.

Second St. W. M. BURNS WE'RE S-T-R-E-T-C-H-I-N-G THE TELEPHONE SYSTEM bur still folks must wait to get service The telephone system here is crowded. It is being stretched to its limit to serve as many people as possible. But the waiting lists for service go right on growing. The big factories thai manufacture telephones, wires, cables, and switchboards still are working at capacity on communications equipment and electrical weapons for the army and navy. They cannot help us stretch the system further. So we are making the most of what we have. Until the reserve behind the many allied invasions is ample for any conceivable demand upon it, we must repair and rc-usc every scrap of equipment that can do a wartime J6b. Telephone users are helping, too. Voluntarily, they are eliminating unnecessary calls, being brief on calls (.hat must be made. Many share par- ly lines with others. Where that is practical, it makes one pair of wires serve two lo four families. We're trying to serve everyone we possibly can. When a present user discontinues service, we sec lo it that so far as the location and type of equipment permit, the facilities he gives up arc assigned at once to whoever has been waiting longest. But despite all we can do, we arc sorry lo say that many folks may have to wait n long time. Sooner or later, restored civilian production will bring us all we need to furnish the services you want. We look forward to tackling then the big job of catching up. But until then we can do no more than stretch the telephone system as far as it will go.
