- EDITORIAL Floating Down UMS River The PMA rhairnmii says that HO lO -acre farms jro floating down the Mississippi river every day, enouj^h soil to lu'lp i)roditce to feed the 155 million people in the country, or the more than 170 millions who will have hungi-y mouths to teed by 1 ;)()2. The cost of soil conservation is ai 'tiiall.\' cheap. Every muddy river is prima facie evidence of mal soil practice, and that's ex pensive. There are i< j^ood many types of soil- ljuiJding i)ractices which sliculd require no encouragement or subsidy—because they are good business and sound ojieration even on short-term basis. There are other types of soil building, such as reforestation, taking fields permanently out of intertilled cioi)s and gully treatment which mean hardship and call for sub.sidy. It is not out of line, therefore, to subsidize those operations and to charge the cost against insurance of a permanently adequate food supply. curing the nation's worst floods aiul such action would at once have priceless value in saving the precious .soil. If tlie Republitmis Win If the liepublican parly expects to make a serious bid for the Presidency this year then it must be |)repared, with the aj)proi)- riate candidate, to take a militant stand against the ))i-esent administration iwlicy. The republicans, if they think they can win ijy aDuroving the policies of the Truman administration, are grossly mistaken. Twice, MOW, the American people have voted for the "original" deal and against a substitute "me-too" deal. On a "me-too" basis the republicans wili be whipped for a third straight time. Therefore if the republicans come u]) with a candidate committed to the administration's policies, either foreign or domestic or both, t^hey are not likely to win, Ma.vbe that isn't important. Marbe the country wants a continuation of those policies. But if it does, there isn't much likelihood of the country voting in a republican version of it when the original item can be Red Sox Bill Mosser ' Cops Second Loop Start Ball G£iixi€ The money that anny engineers constantly seek to build dams of doubtful value veisiuu oi ii, wnen me would go a long way towaid permanently had at the saine price. G)untryside Meets Many People at Field Day Yesterday the boys and I the interstate Aberdeen-Angus Brooders' association Field day, held at the fairgrounds here In Blue Earth. This event brought AborJccn-Angus people from Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota as well aa visitors from other states. Wc met BO many folks who read our column, especially In the Sioux City Journal and the Midland Cooperator. They told mo not to get so involved in my radio work as to turn my back on my writing, which I shall never do. Writing is my first love and tho medium in which I have been trained. But I Ilnd radio work very fascinating, too. » <! * AN UNUSUAL FKATUUK occurred at tho Black Angus show—two men won first place in the cattli- judging contest with perfect scores. This docs not happen often. There were judging contests fur the women, too, and one for the boys and girKs, another for those under 21. M.nnuel Camposano, concrete manufacturer o: Sioux City, and former Chilean Airline pilot, spoke on South America. Mr. Camposnao has a voiy fin,' knowledge of tho great continent south of us. and By SU.SAX f'KAWLEV £ISEL£ wgre invited to attend, his talk was so fascinating. Would recommend him to anyone needing a speaker, should he be available. He makes SouUi America very real and understandable. Here is, indeed, a country so largo and possessing such potentialities, as to stagger the Imagination. ^ * * THE TWO A.MKBICAS have cver>-thing. And yet we concentrate on Europe and sometimes I wonder if it Is worth all tho heartaches It is causing. Wish I had che time and opportunity of attending more such meetings. It is good to get acquainted with folks from the midwest, especially from Nebraska and South Dakota. They have so much to give us. Consider Minnesota and Iowa kind of home folks and take them more or less for granted, you knov.'. It would be fine if we could get to. gcther oftencr and exchange experiences and ideas. Wc hid something for dinner at the Field dav that was new to mo. Smoked goo-se sandwiche.i from Nebraska. Wish I knew who made them. If .inyone knows, jilcase lot me know.

Runnerup honors went to Roman Baitkowski with a home run that cleared the ctnter field fence 365 feet from home plate and a double plus thrgu walks for a perfect night at bat.

Tho Sox counted first with twu in tlio initial stanza on an trror, .\liko oottchor's triple and Freeman's first hit of the ball game. Mason City tied the score on hits by John Ewaniak, his only safo- t> of the game, Dick Christolpi! and Bob Miller and walks to Don Waldion and ChuCK Walker, th. Ma^on City starling pitcher.

This loaded tho sacks again. Boettchcr and Freeman both went down on atrikca but Bartkowski piked up a free ticket to force Mosser In with the seventh run for the home club. « i» » MASON CITY got a single counter in the seventh on an error, a passed ball and Colloton's first hit of the game which scored Pearson.
