COURIER NEWS PAGE NIN* Builders and Material Dealers Rushed With Orders During Post-War Construction Period Silage Made From Grass Better than Hay Seven hundred tons of good grass silage have been cut from A. W. Campbell's per.nianent' pasture this year, Pulaskl County Agent W. P. Splvey, reported recently. The silage, iiiac!e from growth of grass and lespedeza, will be used In wintering beef cattle Mr. Spivey said. A mowing machine with a windrow" attachment to the cutter-bar was used to cu* the grass. Then the material was picked up by a field cnsllaae cutter, cut and blown into a trailer, and hauled to the trench silo. r.rass wos allowed to wilt slightly In the wind-row.

The necessity for some measure of control over camper.s lias been emphasized, In the view of the authorities, by recent big forest fires in southwestern France which cost nearly a hundred lives and grea't damage to property. At least somp of these fires are'believed to have been started by careless campers. Regulations are being considered which may require every French camper to belong to a club which will control tl\e activities of its members In the same ways as other sporting clubs/ Towns and villages may be required to set aside definite camping grounds with eleven- grass was placed In the silo, Mr. Campbell found that making grass silage was a jch easier way to conserve a winter feed supply than trying to make hay when rains came every day or two. Lack of Nitrogen Dften Causes Corn To Turn Yellow One Arkansas farmer this year discovered that It was a nitrogen deficiency in Ills soil, and not too much rain, that caused his corn o turn yellow during the growing period, according to extension of flclals of the University o( Arkansas' College of Agriculture. Hansel McCain, v h o- lives 1 n Franklin County, took the advice of his county agent, Amos H. Underwood, and. applied nitrogen when his corn started turning yellow- even though he thought the condition was caused by too much rain. He applied 70 pounds per acre of ammonium nitrate Excessive rain before he completed this operation caused lilm not to apply .the fertilizer to one acre. The corn on which Vie had applied nitrogen immediately took on a dark green color. That receiving no nitrogen became more yellow. .- ; The .Franklin county iarmer grows cover crops of hairy vetch and Austrian winter peas. He.turns these under in the spring, and applies 200 pounds per acre of complete fertilizer to his corn. He.says that next year he Is going to In crease the amount of atnmojiiuni nitrate from 70 pounds to 100 pounds per acre. Mr. McCrain told County Agent Underwood that he had doubled corn yields by planting and turning under winter cover crops.

[President Truman, by executive order, directed recently that control of the Western Pacific Islnnd be transferred from the Navy to the Interior Department July I, 1850. He appointed a civilian governor, Carlton Skinner, to replace the retiring naval commander, Rear Adm. Charles A. Pownnll. Then Interior Secretary Krug asked Congress for $115,000 to, hire civilians to replace Navy and Ma- Corps personnel and In other vays to create a civilian cstabltsh- nent which would be ready to operate when (he Navy withdraws. But the House ^Appropriations Committee turned down the request for-funds. And when the Senate Appropriations Committee received :he request chairman McKellar <L>. Tenn.) and several other members firmly opposed providing the money at this time. •, .-;.. The legislators' main objection was that Congress should first act on pending "organic" legislation for the Island, defining its citizens rights and duties- and authorizing a civilian government. Money Issues Pending If the moiicy isn't provided tin new governor will just have to gc'. along with -the Navy funds now 'Available and n completely civiliai government will have to be put of until Congress acts. Skinner him self will technically be a Navy cm ptoye until July 1. He is now dircc tor of Information (public relations of the Interior Departmcnt--and spe routes Is the Iceberg danger zone, cial assistant to. Secretary Krug. Some senators and congressmen emorked (hat they thought they'd Mtter tnkc a trip out to Guam be- ore they decide anything. J A group I legislators did visit the Island II 1047, accompanying Secretary Crug on a tour. Tt was then that Krug urged that Guam • be given a civilian form of government. No 6*116 has questioned the President's right to eftcct Hie transfer hrough executive order. U was by executive order that President McKinley In 1898 set up the govern- nent of Guam under Navy control. The Navy is perfectly willing lo •clinqulslr its authority on Guam irovldlng nothing is done (o interfere with the building 'and operft- ion of Its bases there. The Navy and Interior Departments worked joints' on a draft of proposed legislation which would set vip a civilian government by congressional acjion. Action Include sAncient Treaty The administration's hasle In preparing for the shift of control in July can be explained on diplomatic Broupds. Little Giram has become n source, of embarrassment lo U. S. representatives In the United Nn(ions, and other International bod- i ics. American delegates talk agalml other countries' exercising military control of subject peoples, yet the U. S. hns persisted In keeping the 26,223 natives of Guam under the command of naval officers. America promised 51- years a£o in the Treaty of Paris, which ended the war with Spain, to define the civil rights of Guamians. This it has never done. Their, rights now are whatever the military governor uf administration in Washington say» they are. And America contracted In the United Nations Charter (Chapter XI, Article 73): "To develop self government,- to lake due account of the political aspirations of the peoples, and to assist them In the progressive development of their free political Institutions, according to the pnrtlcu- ar circumstances of each territory nnd Its peoples and their varying stages of advancement. . .
