It all adds up to good business. Japan's "Democracy' King Cotton Has a Rival • • While King Cotton has a rival in Mississippi County and faces possible dethronement by another cash crop— soybeans—the news will be welcomed by planters, large and small, and businessmen throughout the county because even a student in economics knows that two good cash craps arc better than one. ! A one-crop system of agriculture is faulty because one bad year, whether it be from drouth, floods, an unduly wet spring or prolonged rains in the fall to handicap harvests, w hard—in some instances extremely hard—on the 'farmer. One bad year has meant the difference between solvency and bankruptcy. With a two-crop system there • is 'greater certainty that both will riot fail, and both may be as good as cotton alone could ever be. • Then there is the matter of prices for the harvested crop and low prices have somolimds, hit almost as hard as Tt crop failure. With a two-crop system there is the further safeguard that the price for one can be good, while the other is poor. Some figures in a news item yesterday about the growing im|K>rlancc of soybeans bear repeating. A yield of 2,050,000 bushels is predicted this year for Ulissisippi county in contrast to a yield of 1,500,000 last year. The acreage in soybeans this year is:; arcrtmrt'i • 160; 000,- whi ch co m pa re s Wth 200,000 acres in cotton in this one -.county alone. ': ' The acreage in soybeans accounts for one-fourth of all land in cultivation "iri "the county. • ; The acreage .figures reflect that Tilississippi county stands far ahead .of a county which is in the two-casli- Jctop category for 128,000 acres in this Tien delta country arc devoted to crops other than cotton, and soybeans this year, not to mention the growing im- .portance of _ livestock as another revenue producer for the business-minded .filmier. ;; Wide diversification of crops means The aftermath of the recent Japanese election underscores the fact that few fundamental changes have been wrought bj 1 occupation. The new government will be determined largely by the bargaining among n few lenders, a good proportion of them men who en- thiisinsllcnUy supported the militarists. Several come under the terms of the MacArthur "puiue" of Insl January, but the Tokyo Government has neglected to arrest them. What influence the elected representatives of Ihc people will have on the Cabinet is not clear. Premier Shidehnrn did not wall to be ousted by the Met and the new Premier will doubtless be chosen before the Diet ever meets. The election may influence the division of Cabinet members among Ihe parties, but the bargaining of the bosses will settle the complexion of Ihe Government. It could lie radically altered l>y a new purge or by Insistence that earlier ones l» made effective. Several mcmoers of the last two governments made sudden shifts from Cabinet posts lo prison. Several' df the leaders of the three chief parties now negotiating nlxnit the new Cabinet must wonder whether- a wave of General MncArUiur's luind or fin expose oi their records will similarly change their' status. American ncwspnperinen have been digging Into their rec'ords—which are embarrassing, to .sny the least. For Inslnncc, the position ol Ichiro Hnloynma who had btim most prominently mentioned as the new Premier, is not strengthened by the disclosure that he served ns "peoples' envoy" to Hitler and Mussolini nml promoted "thought purges" of _ Japanese universities. It is quite possible to make mistakes In judging records of collaborators. But it Is also loo easy to forget lhat Government In Japan has always been n behind-lhe-scencs affair— and, whatever the "democratic" facade it still is. ,* " —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR 'Say When!

KEN'S BIRTHDAY PARTY i'J'HE next evening Bart and Joel came to call. 1) Ellie shook hands wilh Joel nnd smiled cheerfully and said it had 'been a long time since he'd seen him. I When Bart heard that Ellie was 'loafing lor two weeks, he wanted jto know why he didn't come surf (fishing with them. Ellie said he r guesse.d he could dig out the old iand line and give her a try, and ^Bart asked him if he wouldn't Tather borrow a rod; there were 'plenty of them around over at the house. Ellie said that Was n sissy way to fish the surf; he'd stick to .the old hand line. i Ken drove in, and Debby brought him in and introduced ;him. They all stood around in the [living room a few minutes, talking, »nd Debby wondered if Joel was him as the insurance TUIAT night Joel caught an 11- pound striped boss. Bart caught three smaller ones, the biggest about eight pounds. Ellie didn't even get n strike, and the next afternoon he went to Hyannis nnd bought himself a surf-casting rod. Dcbby was busy almost every and because she got all out of breath climbing the hill to the house. • » • "WfHILE she was out, Ken called nnd left a message with Agnes that he had business in Falmouth and was afraid lie would be late to the parly, and would Debby mind driving herself up to the Curriers'? That made her cross too: when a girl was engaged, she shouldn't have to be driving herself to parties. You looked like a fool, walking in to a party oil by yourself. 4 But at 6 o'clock she put on her night that week, nnd Joel nnd Bart gayest dress and a little more had lo go back up to Boston Salur- make-up than usual and drove to man who came to the house that ^tay. if he did, he didn't say any- •Ihirtg about it: She wasn't enjoy- *ig having them all there together .inuch, and as soon as she could, she 'gat Ken out to the car. h They went to the movies in Or- |fcoiw, and afterwards to the Grille i** a glass of beer. j Ken asked, ".Who is this Sum- !• For a moment Dcbby didn' •.know who he meant. Then sh iMrfd, "Oh, you mean Joel. He wa iBart Wyman's roommate at Exe ler." U "Have yott known him long?" If "Ofc, «ur*,^ she said. "Years. iShe smiled.. "I was kind of swcc . !0B him once. Ken nodded. "That's what bOKMHi* She liunti«l "You're cot jealous, dty morning, so she didn't sec cither of them. Ellie told her that Joel was going to have lo go out to Chicago during his Christmas vacation, to see about selling the house out there nnd disposing of a lot of furniture. But ho hoped lo be able to get down sometime in the spring, nnd he was definitely planning to spend the next summer on the Cape. Ken Newkirk's birthday was the cxt Friday, and Shirley arranged big party for him, n buffet supper t the studio- for nbout 20 people. Debby woke up that morning with bad headache; if it had been any ther parly, she would have jogged off. She figured she would have to spend the day getting inlo shape to go, so she called Mr •Jickerson and told him she was sick, and she took some aspirin am went back to bed. -A ma*.' -W«B, »q« •fecdntfce.

She had been feeling rotten too much of the time lately, cspe cially these last couple of weeks It was her digestion, she decided it was all shot. And when sh didn't have a headache or a stom (ich-ache, she was tired and Srri table and unable to get up any en thusiasm about anything. Finally she went to sleep, an when she woke up at noon he headache was pretty much gon but still she felt like a limp ra and she still Wt grouchy an grumpy. She tried taking a wal during Ihe afternoon, but she go mad at herself because all h the Curriers'. Ken came at 7 o'clock. He came across Ihe studio to where. Debby was sitting nnd kissed her lightly, and then Shirley took him over to the bar for a drink. At 8 clock everybody was slill drink- g. Debby thought they never oukl get around to eating. She tdn't eaten much of anything nil •\y, and she felt hollow and weak. When the food finally came, she c ravenously. She cleaned \ip er Dilate, nnd when she looked [>, everybody else's plate was ill half filled. She hoped nobody ad been watching her eat. She ucssed nobody had. Nobody ccmed to be paying any attention o her ot all. Ken was over on the ther side of the room, with the tatloons and Shirley. She took her >late over to the table and halt illed it from the various dishes nd look it back and left it on the able beside the couch where she vas silling. Sometime later Gordy noticed hat nobody was paying nny attention to her, nnd he came and sat beside her and told her mourn- 'ully, in great detail, all about an article he had been reading nbout how they subsidized football players in some of the southern universities. He didn't think it was fair to ask colleges that were strict about eligibility rules to compete with colleges that did that, did she? The room was hectic with noise and confusion, and Dcbby ' . »?r*.> l !?..*?ft.*!»!*.?!P. b . b , didn't know where Ken was now. Be ConUii*«4). By PETER KOSON NKA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON', Jim e i. (NEJA> —The strangest aspect of the entire two-day railway strike crisis was the fact that the quietest place in Washington, the place least concerned with nil the rumpus, was th 0 National Mediation Board itself. On the day the strike was settled, there was only one new girl nt work in the National Mediation Board offices the place where, railway labor disputes are supposed to ue settled. The reason for this paradox was thnt the board had washed its hands of this particular dispute last January, It reported then to the President that it was unable to settle the issue. Thereafter, the dispute belonged first to two special arbitration boards, then to an emergency board appointed by the President in March. When this emergency board failed to settle the dispute in April, it was right bnck on the White House doorstep in the merry month of May Tills brief chronology raises a number of important doubts. Why did the National Mediation Board fail? Are there certain weaknesses In the Hallway Lnbor Act lhat need fixing? TUB LAW, NON-COMPULSOKY WORKED FOR 10 YEARS Railway labor leaders and railroad executives wrote Ihis law themselves to provide machinery lor keeping the peace. The law worked for 10 years, though there was nothing compulsory nbout it, nnd all agreements had to be arrived nt by compulsory means. The act worked until A. F. Whitney of the Trainmen and Alvanlcy Johnston of the Engineers ca-me along with what has been characterized by such authorities ns Donald Richberg ns a deliberate attempt lo wreck It. Aside from that, there arc some leaders among the railway brotherhoods who feel that the administration of the law has been allowed to grow wenk in recent years. They feel they have n genuine gripe against the government for their Inxness. William M. Leiscrson, chairman of Ihe National Mediation Hoard until July. 1944, was a pillar of slrenglh who made the law work through the mere force of his characlcr. When he resigned, Harry Schwartz became chairman. Ho Is a liimc-iluck Democratic senator from Wyoming, n nice enough olil gentleman but not too forceful nnd not very cxixirlcnccd In lalwir rc- lallons. The second member. Gcorpe A. -ook. is thoroughly experienced in labor relations, having worked ai hem nil his life. But he wants to re-sign nnd will step out July 31. The third member, Judge Frank P. Douglass, n former stale jurtRC in Oklahoma, has served on many labor mediation panels. He Is relatively inexperienced in railway labor matters, nnd the brotherhoods clnim he spends too much time on Ids ranch and not enough In Washington. In summary. It is charged that Ihe National Mediation Board, is now constituted, Is not strong enough to work things ovil it.vlr. so has to dump them on Ihe White House. Whnt It needs more men of the Leisefson nnd Cook experience. THREE BOARDS ARRIVED AT IG-OKNT-RAISE FORMULA When the National Mertlatior Board gave up on the big rail wage case, l»st January. H had (o be referred lo arbitration boards. The case of 'the five operating brotherhoods wont to it three-nun panel on which the public memljcr WM Judge E.
