Office of Education the State Board at a previous meeting withdrew earlier approval of the Jonesboro school's program for training vocational agriculture teachers. A delegation headed by pr. W. J.

COURIER NEWS Russians View 'Improvement' in Party Training MOSCOW —I/Pi— "Pi-.ivda" snld In a leading editorial that "a certain improvement" lias been ach- eived this year in the political education of Party members and candidates. "In the course of the gigantic work of directing socialist construction," said (lie paper, "Ihe Party has .succeeded in training hundreds of thousands of propagandists. It cannot, however, be said that all propagandists answer in the knowledge and experience lo the high demands made of them." "In some parts there are still traces of formalism and scholasticism in the organization'*)f studies. Lively discussion is often replaced by the question-answer method." "Pravrula" suid that in preparing for (he new .scholastic year main attention must be paid to improving further propagandist personnel. A fresh instance of the Party's gandists was the decision of the Central Committee of the Party to organize courses for the leaders of political schools and study circles on study of the biographies of Lenin and Stalin anci the history ol the Party.

Dr. Roberts said that the University, one of the two approved vocation training institutions in Arkansas, is now turning out two and one-half to three-times as many vocational agriculture teachers as are needed. This led Dr. Edens to say "the [ number trained should not he a i (actor.

Montgomery Associated Tress Central Husiness Kill tor NEW YORK, July 12—ul'i—There was encouragement for industry, for labor, and for the public at large in President Truman's economic repou to the nation yesterday. Warning .signals were hoisted for all to heed; but the over-all picture as outlined by the President with the aid of his economic advisors was not a gloomy one. In general, the President reversed his field and admitted what nearly all the rest of the country has been saying for several months: that conditions arc downward and that steps should be taken to halt the decline. The President remains, however, a leading optimist. For business anci industry perhaps the greatest cheer was the President's own abandonment of his January call [or a lour billion dollar tax increase. Actually, industry's fear of such a tax increase died not long alter the January program was laid before Congress. ^As the economic downturn progressed, it had become clear that Congress would not approve the big tax boost. However, until yesterday the President's official position h a d ! favored it. and this had remained a somewhat threatening sword over business, with yesterday's message, the President and industry see oyc- to-eye on the general business lax problem: that is .no major increases should tie undertaken in a declining economy and. in fact .some business taxes should be lowered. For labor there was cheer and support in the President's declaration that the purchasing power of PAGE THREE Helicopters and Parachutists Help Foresters Fight Fire with Flight workers must be niLimtuined, atu thai, although prices .should trotnc down, they ^should not be cut by lowering wages, The President said current wage rates "should at lea.sL be maintained."

WASHINGTON —CNEA1— The j U.S. Is prepared to meet this summer's forest fire threat through the air. There are (wo aerial \reapons against fires that blacken and destroy our forests—"smoke jumpers" and helicopters. The U.S. Forest Service has been developing the technique of dropping men in parachutes to fight flies for 10 years, Its corps of 300 expertly trained men Is always ready to be flown to practically any part of Ihe country. They constitute one of the efficient oulfih of their kind In the world. These smoke jumpers spearhead all of the paid and volunteer efforts which arc marshalled when a big bla/e is first discovered. Because they can reach the scene so swiftly, many times just a few of them can get a fire under control which otherwise would destroy millions of acres of valuable, timber. Although the work is exlremelj hazardous, (he equipment whicl is now provided for (hem lias krfp Injuries resulting from the drop il.self almost negligible in the past two years. The actual fire fiKht- ing and the possibility of being surrounded by a wall of blazing trees are the dangerous clemenls of the game. Each man is hcnvll> paded. wears steel leg guards.

He carries with him sricciaHy- designcd picks, shovels and axes plus a quintily of explosives, firs aid equipm'ent and food. The helicopter has come into use more recently, but II has man advantages in 'ighling forest fires First, it serves a.s a sort of aeria command post for the person di reeling the activities. Hoveling over the fire, he can see wlncl way It is headed, where it is mos dangerous and where a conceit (ration of effort would be mos effective. It can also be used to get mei and equipment from one spol ti another quickly. Once a smoke jumper has bailed out. he Is com milted to that particular spol, re gardless of whether the fire shank become more serious In anothe spot. The helicopter can als evacuate men when a fire threa't ens to surround them, keep t! fighters fed and supplied will equipment when Ihcy are in ac on. and get them back to hos itals quickly when they are inured.
