SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 19-14 Limas Bringing Farmers Profit County Growers Begin jWarvesr Of Beans For tanning Factories Approximately 2000 acres of lima beans planted in Mississippi County this year are bringing substantial dividends to growers who arc paid the government-set price of $95 per ton lor tlielr Ijeans. .Despite the Tact that recent rains damaged tlie crop to some extent, it ts believed the yield will be uood. Harvesting the beans, which are said lobe of excellent quality, started a week ago and will continue through most of October. The beans, contracted for by (he county's two cunning factories at niytlieville and Osccola, are shelled by the purchasers at the field mid I hen cleaned and canned upon arrival at the plants. Tlv lima bean crop 's an import- ont, phase of the county's agricultural diversification program, since they provide an additional source of revenue for local fanners, it Ims been pointed out. Many farmers also have planted asparagus this Spring, which will be canned by (lie Blytlieville Canning Company after the first cutting in 194G. Those growers ivho purchased older roots for planting however are exported to harvest their first cuttings next year. The asparagus plants arc' growing satisfactorily, a survey has revealed. The local canning plant, along with Us lima beans canned under the brands of Sailor Man and Ark Special will pack spinach, mustard ah,| turnip greens later this Fall until Dec. 15. COURTS '(AUK.)

BY I'ETEIl EDSOX Courier News \YashInglon Correspondent Problems of reconversion are being magnified far beyond their true seriousness, according to a new lint I of argument beginning to be heart in Washington. Up to now, all the emphasis has been put on how horrible this period of transition from war lo peace is going to be. Everybody is going to be thrown out of a job. there wll be long periods of unemployment white industry retools for civilian consumers' goods production, and a tough time will be had by all according to the popular notion. A few people, however, insist this is a lot of bunk. Congress refused to believe it in considering its re- conversion bill, consistently votin against unemployment insurance benefits beyond state limitations And among the business men now .in, government .service, particularly those in tlie War Department procurement and purchases, the belief is prevalent that reconversion won't be such a terrible problem after nil. These civilians in uniform have teen reluctant to speak out on their ideas for fear their expressions will IK misinterpreted as an effort to sidetrack tlie movement to start recon- version right now. But all of these men will take off their uniforms after the war is over and go back to private business, so it would seem foolish for them to do anything that would spoil their own future WHERE LABOR IS NEEDED Here is the way the situation spells out to them: Munitions industries will be shut down, yes. Shell-loading and explosive plants will be closed up, but mostly they are in out-of-the-way places which have no industrial future, anyway. Only about 5 per cent of the present aircraft production capacity can be used and the ship yards will, in the main, go.out of business. Estimates of the number of jobs that will " Lieut.

That is the negative anil bad side of the picture. Now look at the other industries- Tn the first place, the Navy will not slop its present building program, which is planned to run beyond 1S45. Next is a big group of industries which have no reconversion problem at nil. Steel mills can go right on making steel. Si7.cs and shapes may change, but it will still be steel The same thing goes for all metals production—aluminum, copper or what have you. Food production and processing will likewise continue. Sizes of cans aud packaging may be changed for peace-time trade, but there is no re- conversion problem. The textile industry could use 100.000 more employes right nod, it it could get them, and it lias no re- conversion problem.

No details wore revealed. ing cluck will go back to makini carpet and the threads may lj changed for consumers' good weaves, but that's all. Building material, furniture am glass industries can keep right 01 going without reconversion. Service industries hotels, restaurant.?, laundry and dry cleaning es-' tablishmcnls and so en—could nil use more help than they can get now. IT MAV NOT HI; so TOUGH Transportation industries can also use more labor and linve a big accumulation of maintenance and repair work lo do. Locomotive and railroad equipment manufacturers, which made tanks at the outset of the war, have already been largely converted back, though they are still on war orders. Electrical goods makers will simply make different electrical goods. Problems of the automobile industry hiive been considered serious, hut 1 have been greatly exaggerated: Truck makers, now turning out 60,000 vehicles a month, can go right on making trucks for civilian use. Tire makers will go right on making tires. Only the passenger car manufacturers have a problem, but ns it took them only six weeks to convert from peace lo war, it should not take them more than two months to reconvert. Refrigerator, washing machine and vacuum cleaner makers face about the same thin;, Adding all these things and sub tracting this sub-total from the to tal employment and productive ca pacity ot the country, you come up with a rough figure of 20 per cent o American industry faced with prob lems of reconversion.
