The result i.s a dangerous impasse which perhaps can only be broken by ,an entirely new .start; A Prize Subject VIEWS OF OTHERS Those Kerosened Potatoes And Federal Law Principle and Practice Everybody seems to be in favor oi.

FA'erybody is dead set atjains 1 , toothaches. But that fact doesn't miikc most folks relish a trip lo the dentist any more. Mr. Gromyko and the Atom Andrei It would seem, from Gi'omyko's speech before Die Ameri- cnn-Russiiin Institute in New York, that the Soviet government consk!ei"J the difference between atomic weapons ami other weapons to be one oi' degree rather than kind. At lenst his allusion to the'"international • convention out- law'ng poison lias points to thut conclusion. Mr. Gromyko referred to that convention in implying that the U. S. docs not really want a similar international prohibition of atomic weapons. But the analogy is not entirly apt. . Poison gas was strictly an antipersonnel weapon. Its behavior was somewhat capricious, depending on wir.d and other atmospheric conditions for full effectiveness. Some warning and defense against it were possible!. Tlie atomic bomb, at its present stage of development, brings sudden death, lingering death, and great piop- erty damage. Only its failure to detonate or to hit a desirable target could •destroy its effectiveness, and there is no known defense against it. There was no monopoly in poison gas after its first use. There was nothing secret about its manufacture. All major powers bad it at the end of World War I. That, of course, is not true of atomic weapons. Yet Mr. Gromyko and his government want, the U. S. to cease manufacturing these bombs and destroy the present stockpile of them as a first step toward control. At the same time, Mr. Gromyko says that "beyond any doubt" any one country's monopoly in this field is temporary. Further, he and his government seem to hold the atomic threat so lightly that they refuse to consider international ownership or international inspection. Mr. Gromyko, in his New York speech, boasted of his frankness. Yet he twisted or altered words in some instances to give a deceptive mean inf.* to his remarks on one important subject . That was when ho spoke of Russia's anxiety to "prohibit" atomic weapons and implied that America was reluctant to do so. It was clear from his context that what he really meant was "destroy," not "prohibit." The U. S. initiated the plan to prohibit atomic weapons. Wbat it objects to, and what Russia insists on, is America's preliminary destruction of such weapons with no immediate guarantee from Russia or any other country lo match such action. Our monopoly in the atomic field is admittedly temporary, and may already be ended. Tlie possibility must be considered . that Russia's pevsinten*, tactics ? of delay in any diplomatic discussion are'"a rtevice to give Soviet scientists time to catch up. We fannot -.the- chance that the } Russian In these times of food shortages and high prices, the federal Production mid Mnrkelliv; Administration dumped 11,500 bushels ol potatoes In the woods in Alabama and deliberate!/ ruined them with kerosene, nut n- PMA representative said that the men who are complaintni; in Washington about the destruction of these pointers are the ones who made the law under which tbe potatoes are destroyed to keeo prices up. These were surplus li-slzc potatoes. The- Kovernment iumrnnlecs the farmer 90 per cent of parity for all potatoes he produces. When there is not sulficlcnt demand lor potatoes at support prices the .Agriculture Dc- pmlment buys the surplus supplies, although we are told that' efforts arc made to make use ot potatoes bought by the government. H might naturally be said that the government, should have given these potatoes away instead of destroying them. Hut n PMA spokesman in Alabama said, "We can't give these potatoes away." When the government undertakes to keep up Hie price of n Turin product it can't let surpluses of this product be dumped on the market. It can't even give away such surpluses. And while President Truman is asklnrr Unit prices be reduced, the government, In obedience (o a law of Congress, is supporting prices and destroying food to protect prices against surpluses. —ARKANSAS GAZK1TE.

They con lend that it Is "folly to grant recognition and protection of a group which disavows the American form of goveanment, whose loyalty 10 party is above that to the country, imd which In every way is a menace to the continuing welfare of the United Slates." Tlie argument thai we should leave the communists out in the open where their i-.cliviUus cr.n be more easily observed is met with the contention that communists, whether enjoying legal sanction or not, are conspirators who always work underground. There is much truth in Hint view. Tin: whole trouble is that the communists tuke their line from :i foreign power, are faithful to th»*, power, and have no real American loyalty. Aivri they do operate, with deceit und trickery, disguised by high-sounding names and purposes. We mean real communists, of course. Tlie name, like fascist, is too loosely applied to some who dc not deserve It. Hue unsavory as communism may be, even dangerous, we do not believe the party should be oi:ilmved—yet. That may become necessary. For (lie present, we should try keeping them out of government nnd military positions, and publicizing their shifty, tricky ways. Our heritage of free speech and free press is loo precious to be sacrificed in this matter, unless the communists make such action a necessity to our security nnd survival. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.

Tex., Los Angeles and Albany. Calif., the government is trying to find new usese and improved methods of handling citrus fruits and their byproducts. Canners take 40 per cent or nil the oranges and 70 per cent of the grapefruit now. But after they get the juice in cans they have left a lot of peel. pulp, skin and seeds that are nn awful nuisance. If they're dumped in streams or lakes, they kill off the fish. For a time they were pumped underground that the waste wafers se through reverse wells. Trouble was through Ihe ground and spouted out as springs n couple counties away, causing all soils of damage. Some years ago (he idea of grind- content and makes good cattle feecfc There's a plant at Orlando, Fla., in (his business on a commercial basis. About the fanciest byproduct development, however, was the idea of pressing the oils out of orange and grapefruit seed- Like all Vegetable nils, they may be used as shortening. Refined, they make a good salad oil. Chemists are also trying lo improve the quality of canned citrus fruit products for human consumption. They're analyzing all the unstable organic compounds in the fruit to find which ones spoil the laste of the canned juices. B<t' answer they've foimd RO far is to Lhe ice, leaving a powder which has less than one per cent moisture. It's a little expensive, but it keeps well and has export trade possibilities. ORANGE "BOOZE" IS OUT For a few years the research boys experimented with orange wines, gins, brandies and liqueurs. Tl|y made some socxi stuff, ton, they say. Then Congress decided the government should not spend taxes for boo/e research, so they had to cut it out. All this research has for its real purpose the developing of the citrus fruit market. Though the govern- nent hasn't bought any citrus fruits o support the price since before the war. the possibility of a big surplus and dumped, unsalable fruit such as they hacl in mid-dcprcss'l n ciays. still haunts citrus growers. They have had five prosperous many bad undergone previous removal of their tonsils and aden-< oids. RESULTS ARF. GOOD Treatment of each child consisted of radium applications once a month for an average of four treatments. After the treatments, the adenoid tissue had disappeared in a majority of the cases, but additional treatments wove given to the others until all the adenoid tissue was destroyed., Immediate reaction to treatment was sneezing and a running for one or two days. In ca-ses asthmatic seizures followed. Sufficient time has now elapsed to judge the results, and they are good in most cases. Because radium treatment of several thousands of non-asthmatic children and adults lo prevent hearing: loss ha s shown that the number of colds were reduced, it is hopeful that such treatments will be given to more asthma vis- sorry but they had to take care cl their old customers.

Department of Agriculture now believes there may be 10 million boxes more every year for the next five years. That would mean 250 million boxes for 1952. Tlie question is bow to consume them. One way to increase consumption is to bring the price down, wh^li is always easier said than done. Labor rates nrc up. freight rates are up, Ihe cost of boxes for shipping is up.
