It means some hardship, of course, for new settlers. But it means also a chance to make money — and that's a motivation which has stirred men ma- If you want a contrast in farming, look at recent reports in the 25 Years Ago column on the first wheat of the season arriving here, and compare them with figures on that arriving now. Farmer* bringing in the initial wheat deliveries in 193S were reporting about 15 bushels to the acre. The season had been exceptionally dry and hot, it's true, in those days. That was one of the big drought years. But first farmers bringing in their wheat this year report 4J to 50 bushels of production per acre. This year has been an unusually fine one for growth—if farmers get a break in the weather for their harvesting operations. But much of the difference in wheat production per acre has resulted from improved methods of farming. The production in wheat per acre regarded as routine today would have amazed farmers of 25 years ago. .And if growth in the wheat production perjny times in American history. , . , , , j Thus the "gold rush" to t h e acre is phenomenal, take a look at the tremendous ; K)om)jke arpa jn A , aRka jn 1896 boost given to corn production by not only better methods of cultivation and soil handling, but by the almost miraculous development of hybrid varieties of corn. The farmer, whom many used to regard as the center of conservatism, certainly hasn't been backward in welcoming and availing himself of improvements that have developed through the years Many have contributed to these improvements by their own ingenuity and willingness to share knowledge. » » » * • * Needed Diversion In Taipei, Formosa, Hu Tao-hsing became the first man in Chinese history to be assigned to a supervisory police post the other day. We might import Miss Hu as a meter maid. The name would divert the punsters from City Manager Watt. That We May Still See "There's no such thing as a harmless firecracker," according to Frank F. Fowle, president of the Illinois Society for the Prevention of Blindness. President Fowle made the assertion^ in connection with a statement cautioning Illinois ciitzens to.stay away from fireworks except at supervised displays. Citizens should not need to be reminded of this. They have a perfectly good law on the books forbidding possession, purchase, or discharge of fireworks in the state. Alton has similar city laws on its books, and police enforcement of the law is becoming increasingly effective through the years. Alton is in a particularly ticklish position with regard to this law, however. Tt is only a bridge- length's drive from a row of fireworks peddlers who don't appear to realize President Fowle's caution. The ISPB appropriately has set "Prevention of Blindness Week" so it straddles the Fourth of July when the temptation constantly arises to break safety rules and defy laws both. Of course accidents involving eyes aren't the only thing that can happen when one uses fireworks. One of the worst threats to life and safety is the act of throwing fireworks out of cars in moving. traffic along the highways or in city streets. Such foolhardy practice, needless to say, can cause serious accidents. Franco-British Understanding Announcement by Vernier DeGaulle and Prime Minister Macmillan that tbjy had reached an understanding for close cooperation between France and England is good news for the world, particularly the free'part of it. , Doubt has been expressed in some quarters about DeGaulle's willingness to work with his two allies, the United States and Great Britain, after he assumed leadership in France. President Eisenhower was quick to express his confidence in the French leader. Now DeGaulle and Macmillan are represented as resuming the personal bonds of friendship that existed in the days'll years ago when the two were busy working together against the Nazis in Algeria. High on the agenda of future efforts to reach agreement, of course, will be France's standing demand, emphasized by DeGaulle, for equality with the United States, Britain, and Russia in the nuclear weapons field. This seems to have boggec down on the desire of both Britain and America to keep the possession and manufacture of nuclear weapons a narrow affair. The reason given is the resultant comparative ease of control. In the background could be a distrust of the strength of the Communist Party in France and its penetration oi government bureaus. Perhaps Premier DeGaulle can satisfy our feeling of caution in this direction and enable himself .to become a full-strength ally. We need all the enlightened and strong assistance we can get in this direction. Robert S. Allen Reports Funds for Anti-Crime Drive WASHINGTON — A11 o r - ney General William Rogers is getting tiie money and personnel he wants for that nationwide drive against some 100 leading racketeer! and hoodlums. The House Appropriations Committee has privately voted the $200,000 requested by Rogers for this anti-crime campaign. Principal purpose of this spe- and the tax laws. The former were especially effective in prosecuting Communists. Assistant Attorney General Anderson explained that similar strategy will be employed in the cial fund is to add 15 experienc-tions Committee: ed attorneys to the staff of the Justice Department's Criminal Division. They will be paid an average of $15,000 a year. The Criminal Division is now headed by Assistant Attorney General D. Malcolm Anderson Jr., former U.S. Attorney for Western Pennsylvania. A major the federal conspiracy statutes Coast. Further, this gathering wasn't the first of its kind. Far from it. "These criminal syndicate get- togethers have been going on for many years.

Our-own Pacific Northwest will benefit by the increased trade, and indirectly there will be an impact commercially on the people of the United States as a whole. New Market For if Alaska — which in area is twice the size of Texas — becomes more heavily populated, It means a new market for many products. Likewise, if the valuable oil resources of Alaska are developed.

The Alton Board of Kduoation, facing the early necessity for erection of a junior high school building in Ihe east side area, listed that project with the engineer, at estimated cost of $150,000. The miHers' processing tax which was to be put into effect on July 8 would bring the end of the five-cent loaf of bread. The processing tax as provided in the Farm Bill was 30 cents per bushel on wheat alone; there was a tax on the finished product which added to the raw wheat tax, and made a total of $1.38 per barrel payment to the govern- hient. The committee on arrangements for the dedication of the American Legion plot and World War memorial trees in Valhalla cemetery had selected July 16 as the date of the event. Affixed at the base of each 01 the memorial trees would be a pvening meeting here following an afternoon rally in Kdwardsville.
