OSBORN /"WER two cups of coffee we ^ discussed the 14th Street situation with a localite who i.« one of this city's biggest boosters. He took us to task for suggesting the widening of this particular street at this time. In his opinion there should be a long range view of Brownsville's t r a f f i c needs, particularly to and from the port and the airport. He stated that he believed a traffic expert should be brought hero to make a study and analysis of the problem, And he felt that the money for this export would be well spent. . While we feel that 14th Street needs attention its soon as possible we couldn't help but see and agree with his line of reasoning. * » * ART, Mrs. Stilwell and daughter Mary Grace, left for Mexico Sunday morning to be gone for some three months.

But more important I have ^^ thought thnt one reason for continued war- ware in the Balkans and the fact that Tito can now get, away with a OornmuniPl dictatorship, is lack of education. I also have thought that most Americans have little c rt f w h n i n ttrent blessing our public-school system is. If ?hey^o\iM ^ to the backbone of that system, the selection and pay of teachers. nalkanizin? Pennsylvania Schools ' The money which f inn need the reconstruction work we were doing In Dobro Do and o t h e r parts of the Balkans came mainly horn Pennsylvania, in which state I got a large part of my own education Today that state is so backward when it comes o teachers' salaries that I am almost ashamed to admit I went to school there. . qnnh starvation salaries are paid to Pennsylvania teachers that . Drorressh'es ate like California makes recruiting raids on Penn schools an d h as no trouble skimming off the cream of the crop. A* a result, the teacher exodus from Pennsylvania is appalling.

Classrooms nre overcrowd?d some cliuwoH arc without teachers to handle thorn, and the, t rnover is so great that as many as five different teacners may handle a single class in one year. In other words Pennsylvania, the second wealthiest state in the union, Is rapidly Balkamzing its educational system. 'Interesting thing is that the new Gov. James H, Duff made errandhose promises to improve Pennsylvania cducation-but that was before 1 Sons. Now he has come up with the meager Horn- iher bill which won't come anywhere near remedying the situation Meanwhile also, Pennsylvania, second wealthiest state, has the lowest par-capita state tax of any save the South Iowa and Nebraska. Meanwhile also, Gov. Duff, is chopping about $94,000,000 o " v a r i o u s business twees-including bank and trust company shar.es, corporate loans, mercantile tax, and a manufacturing exemption from capital stock tnx. HP can dish out this gravy to business, but he can't afford an adequate salary boost ^o Pennsylvania teachers. · Of course, I don't h a v e to go to school in Pennsylvani.fi any more -so perhaps I shouldn't worry. But Just because I \ised to like the old state, here's a free tip to Joe Pew, Joe Grundy and the Pennsylvania manufacturers who pull the wires in the stnte legislature:' Well-educated kids don't fall for isms. The most fertile field for Communism is where the schools are the. most BalkanlBed and poverty-stricken. Note to other state governors: This is equally true in your state, too.

Film starlet Alma Kaye almost WORLD'S WORST NEED IS MORE FERTILIZER--By Peter Ed.on Population Grows Faster Than Food Production ±_ ,TM A , ,, ,,« nhosnhorous and , nitrogen over most were .declared .surplus. ed to operate because t WASHINGTON, -- (NEA) Looking at it from an earthy, everyday point of view, what the world may need first is not bigger and better supersonic airplanes, foronccs, or United Nations sky scrapers. What it needs worst is just more fertilizer, The International Emergency Food Council meeting in Washington t h i s weok is hearing nothing but tales of gloom. The number of people In the world is increasing. The supply of food is not. The acreage under cultivation is no bigger than it was before the war. · Thnt reduces the problem to growing more food on the same amount of land to feed more people. One way to do t h n t is to use more fertilizer, as the U. S. did in the war. M a k i n g mure I'erUli/nr and fiprondiin; It around doesn't sound t.no h a r d , Bill, data .presumed to t h e IEPC on the world fer- tiliser situation reveal that, mankind is still pretty c,lubfooted in the head and not much better t h n n a Neanderthaler when it comes to using his noggin to maneuver his lazy bones out of the. mire. Principal commercial fertilizers ...^ phosphorous compounds, The phosphates are in fair supply now, and the IEPC is relinquishing its controls over them as of July 1, The big shortage is In the nitrogenous f e r - tilizers which this year nre 25 per cent under world demand and probably won't be any better next. World demand is for 3.7 "million tons. The supply is 2.8 million, Only five countries have excess nitrogen to export. They are Chile, Canada, the United Kingdom, Norway, and Belgium. They have, to make up the shortages in nearly 100 importing countries which don't produce enough at home for their own use, Vicious,. Circle The U. S. is in this class. Though it has doubled its f e r - tilizer consumption .since the H t n r t of th« war and now produces over OOU.OOO tons, ^2 percent of world .supply, the U. S. must still import 200,000 tons of nitrogen, To increase the production of explosives in wartime, the U. S. government built a number of ammonia, nitric acid, and graining plants. When the war over most were .declared .surplus. Some were taken over for the production of fertili/er.s. But |;hc. other plants were so scattered about the country that their use in combination to produce fertilizers requires service by a large number of tank cars for reshipment of chemicals from plant to plant. .If enough foresight had bean used to locate these plants better so that they could have been converted to nitrogenous ferti- liser production in time of peace, the world's food production situation today might be a lot happier, ' European . fertilizer production is all snarled up. The principal d i f f i c u l t y Is lack of coal to run the plants. Coal production can't be stepped up till there is more food for miners, . Industrial nnd transport workers, They can't Rut more food till there is more fertilizer produced. It's a vicious circle. Sorry Spcctaolft 'Germany used to be a big nitrogen fertilizer exporter to the rest of Europe. Bombs destroyed some of the chemical plants. But the Allied military government authorities at. first didn't want the nitrogen plants repair- to operate because they were considered ^munitions plants. So here you had the sorry spectacle of trte U. S.--which produces less fertilizer than it uses--exporting nnd buying not only fertilizer but also food for occupied Europe,, while German fertilizer plants remain idlo and European food production is below_ par. This year nn effort i« being mndc to get some of the German nitrogen plants going again in the U.S., French, and British zones. Production of 200,000 ions Is hoped for. All the German potash plants are in the Russian zone, so nobody knows what they're doing-. But if Gorman fertilizer production could get back to its prewar 1.5 million tons, it would not only increase food supplies but the exportable surplus could be sold to the U. S. This would help pay lor food the U.S. now sends Germany. All countries that have fertilizer surplus "want, to export to the U. S. to get dollars. That's one of the factors which makes it d i f f i c u l t to pet the exporting countries to allocate their surpluses to countries that don't pay «o well. married reporter Justin Gilbert-.
