WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, 1942 BLYTIIEVILLE, (ARK.)' CO'UUIEH NEWS PAGE THREE • EDSON IN WASHINGTON By FETEII EDSON A Courier News Washington ' Correspondent Any time an attempt is made to hang the Communist label on a government official, it's fun to go around and have a look at the accused, to sec how long he lets his whiskers grow, whether he wears his .shirt inside or outside his pants, and just how big a too boyish to grow any beard at all. Furthermore, he combs his hair. His eyes are blue. His get-up was blue—suit, shirt, tie. He looks like a bond salesman, but of course you can't trust these Communists and there's no telling what tricks they're up to. The real secret of Mr. Baldwin's communism comes out when you examine his political past—he is supply of bombs and vodka he a Virginia Democrat and (shh) he keeps. Consequently, when it \va.s charged on the floor of the Senate that C. B. Baldwin, who heads Farm Security Administration in the Department of Agriculture, might be a Communist, this reporter went out to inspect. Everyone now agrees that these Communists are darn clever people, but if Mr. Baldwin is a Communist, the way they get up their disguises is a caution. What greets the eye is a young feller of 40. Far from growing a Bolshevik beaver, he looks almost too young, has voted for Harry Flood Byrd for senator three times. It was Senator Byrd, you'll recall, who led ihe fight on FSA in the Senate, though it was Senator Kenneth McKellar who called Baldwin a Communist. Tovarich C. B. Baldwin is known to his intimates by the nickname about n sixth of all the farm families in the United Stales. About 80 per cent of its loans are collectible. PSA employes numbci some 20,000. Its administrative costs have run 5 per cent, due to the close inspection that must be made on its millions of scattered small loans. Now there is obviously much in that program you can find fault with, but consider what FSA was given to work. with. It was n igncd the job of bringing i' clicl o the lower 50 per cent of the arm families, the group that gets nly 10 per com of the farm i ome. It was authori/ed to help only those families which conk lot get help from private bunks hose families which had no col- ateral, those families \vhicl were the poorest risks.

The C. stands for Calin. He was born in Radford Va., where his father ran a grain nill. As a boy, Beany workec -xroimd the mill and got to kno\\ the Virginia farmers and the! problems rather well. He went to Virginia Polytechnic Institute, thei came back home to work in the railroad shops and run an clectrica business. In 1933, Henry A. Wallac as secretary of agriculture hircc Paul Appleby as one of his assis tants. Appleby knew Beany Baldwi and brought him to Washingto as a bright young man. BEANY BKICKBATTED II is of course the FSA program that was really under attack in the Senate. Baldwin just happens to be the man who is directing the program and so he has to catch all [ 1 the brickbats thrown in that general direction. FSA can be criticized. It has made some mistakes. If, did considerable experimenting in rural relief. About $1 billion have been administered by the agency since it was created by Cchgrcss in 1935 as a successor to Resettlement Administration ot Tugwelltimes. FSA has made loans or otherwise helped nearly a million farm families, which is our ear stall on a grade crossing, feu mighi wreck a train bcixrins var .supplies. NOTK'i; OF FILING OF AITIJ- bringing relief to one of thes poor families has been brough clown to $75 a year, and that c should be compared with the $-100 or $500 it cost to keep a city or town WPA family for a year. HAVE A CHANCE Today, with a war on and with a huge food production program under way, Beany Baldwin sees the first chance these low income farm families have had to get back on their feet. There is a shortage of farm labor. The one-family farm therefore has a chance, if it is steered into producing the needed vitamin crops and steered away from producing the surplus crops of cotton and wheat. ;ATION IOK UQIHW i Notice is hiM-eby given that the ndersi^tu-d JKIS filed with the ommissiuiuT of Revenues of the State of Arkansas an application or permit tu sell and dispense vinous or spirituous liquors for beverage at rot a il tor wholesale) on (ho promises described as Roxy Whisky atoro. 112 W.
