With the report of this meeting there will be sent to all stockholders a list by states and districts of the U.

The least you can a Is to write to us to find out qulckl th« truth about »ny charges whlcl may be made against our industry."

Budenz's' case against Lattlmore rests entirely on what he pays he was told in 1931 by Earl Browder. Jack Stachel and others. Budenz says these Individuals should be subpenaed and questioned by the Tydings committee. The question would then become, how much belief could be placed in their testimonv? Chairman Tydings drew from Budenz an admission that they would He to anyone outside the Communist Pnrty If It was to their advantage to do so. Later, under questioning by senators Ktckenlooper and Green, Budenz developed the theory that a* Communist conspirators, they never lied to each other, and that their statemetns regarding Lattimore could therefore be believed. In the light of these new developments, it will be several weeks before all the evidence is In. And in judging the case, it would be wise to waft -until all the evidence Is in.

Van Bomel told National Dairy Products stockholders that feder&l, state B tid local taxes had Increased until "government has become an equal partner in our business, taking approximately half of all that remains after the cost of operation is paid. In fact, government receives more than half, for the same dollars are taxed again when the stockholder receives them as Income." ' And Eugene G. 6ra«e. chairman of Bethlehem Steel, lashed out at "the trend toward socialistic state an dnationalization and bureaucratic control of business." However, this drive to arouse stockholders as a class may well run into one fundamental difficulty —.stockhoklers aren't a class. A stockholder may be the man sitting at the window of a swanky club, or he may be the union man picketing on the sidewalk below! He may be, In his politics, either radical or reactionary. But he does have one thing to common with all other stockholders: the hope that the value of _^his share will go up, or that the M^vfdend rate will be maintained t^r Increased.

The committee wrangles over technicalities and petty details that hamper the Investigation. The Lattimore case belongs before a grand jury. State military engineers In central Alaska. They knew very little about it until they began to do heavy building in the areas of Ladd and Eilson Fields, near Fairbanks, in the last war. Now they have learned that per-, mafrost must be a major consideration in planning any construction in that region, permafrost is ground that Is frozen the year around. If you try to build on it, it thaws and becomes oozy as quicksand. It is generally covered with low, thick, mossy vegetation, which insulates it against summer heat. When you scrape off the surface cover it begins to melt. It goes two to 100 feet deep, average 15 feet. Much of it is a fine silt. When attempts have been made to build on it, the buildings settlec and tilted. Runways for airplanes or heavy duty roads built on permafrost usually sink, crack,.or heave— unless special precautions are taken. The Army Corps of Engineers anc othtrs who have worked in the central area of Alaska—AJichorag and areas to the south are no affected by permafrost—have found hat the best thing Is to find a ocatioii where there Is little or no MacKenzie Continued from Page • glcs.
