Barr said the Information was obtained in Nanking April 24, 1942 after two days of torture and continuous questioning. • Bai'r and some of the other pilots were forced to sign "confession sthat they machine-gunned Learn Spring Frost Date Before Starting Garden if shows AVtKAGl DATES On Which Last Killing Froit in Spring Has Occurred ron U.

However, Mr, Truman's appeal docs not. mean Unit, you should drop everything and immediately got busy in the garden. The starling dale is determined by the weather and nothing Is to lie gained until the soil becomes workable and clangor from late spring frosts has passed. We must remember that in most sections of the country the gardening season is li riled to those days between the last killing frost In spring and the first killing frost In the fall. The growing season is therefore determined by Hie length Of Ihe period between these dates. The accompanying map should aid Ihe gardener to plan his seed sowings and setting out of tender plank. Most, .vegetable seeds may be sown out-of-doors with safety a ^nontii before tlie average last frost date, provided the ground Is dry cnouglit to dig. Tender plants like tomato and cabbage, however, must not be set out until after the last average frost date In your locality.. And for safety's sake, the old gardener cautions you to have some light protective covering ready for the plants ir a laic frost threatens. Seed may be started In the hotbed or indoors six to eight weeks before the frost date.' And experience has proved that It docs not pay to be the early worm. Vegetables will come along just as fast if they are planted after the season is favorable.

They were half-and-half Senators alhd Representatives. Seven were Democrats and nine were Rcpub- llclans ant! they made It plain by signing a written statement. They are: .

'• Onr' Debts are HUEC .. America's next chance to riave ' a.-balanced' budget will be in the fiscal year of 1941. It starts July 1,, 1946 and ends June 30, 1947. TJie ;t7nited States is already in debt for everything it has. This does not - mean all the country is worth, but it does mean an a'riiount equivalent to the value of everything the people of this na- tjtpn have saved since their ancestors started saving. .The national debt is 280 billion dollars'. That figure approximates the value of all the farms and j farm improvements in the country, all the city real estate and city., improvements, all the manufacturing plants in the nation, all colonial days might have stood If his log cabin had burned with everything of food anil clothing inside. Bringing an Illustration closer to home: The energetic young family man with two children who hns just finished paying for an $8,000 home can depend on starting no\v to buy It all over again in taxes, paying no more than his rightful share of the national debt which Is $2,000 per man, woman and child. Tax on this enormous debt will be a new, yearly expense for our government. IL will, be a big 1 one too. Interest on debt alone will cost Uncle Sam more than he ever raised by Inxes in any single prewar year, if there ever was a time when America's common people deserved a balanced budget so they could look frankly and bold- at the truth of debts and taxes, it Is now. Fighting Has Oasetl There arc ways lo start balancing the n'ltionnl 'budget and the sooner it starts the better. The war is over and war bureaus can stopped If we really set ouv heads to do It.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 19-lG Fruit Demand End Of Price Controls BY ANN riSCIIKR WASHINGTON, Mar. 20. (UP) — I'Yult growers throw llielr support today behind demands Ihat con- ercjw abolish price controls. ' Karl D. Loos, attorney for the Cnlifonilii Fruit Growers Exchange, sild production In the citrus fruit, industry was 50 per cent above Hie pre-war nvemce and that price controls were not needed. When OPA suspended citrus ceilings recently, he snid, prices dkl go «l) but "I llilnk prices would have dropped if Ihe ceilings had stayed oft." Ixios took his arguments to House Hanking committee hearings on legislation to extend OPA another year after June 30, 1947. Hie National Association of Manufacturers, which speaks for a large segment of Industry, opposed the Wll earlier this week on grounds OPA served as a brake on production. Spokesmen for the dairy, vegetable, and lumber Industries also have called for an end to price controls. C. W. Kitchen, executive vice president ot the United Freeh Fruit Jnikl Vegetable Association said that OPA operates to 'disrupt the long- cslabllshcd praclices of this fust moving business." He recommended that OPA proceed with a progressive and final removal of price ceilings on all fresh fruits and vegetables "as rapidly as Is consistent with a somid national economy." D. K. Howe, president of the American Butter Institute, told tlie committee yesterday that the only really workable and prompt solution to the problem of the butter shortage is "lo remove all dairy products, particularly butter, from price control." k E. Hurtz, chairman of tho dairy Industry committee said the government's milk production goal "wilt not be met under price controls."
