Critics, chasing flyspecks, infer that , Ginsberg did some draft dodging..That is silly. While Leon Henderson headed ORA ha regarded Mr. Ginsljurg as. essential. When Prentiss Brown succeeded Henderson, he agreed. .Unfortunately, Messrs. Hi'own.and Ginsburg do not see eye to eye on matters of policy. This has made the latter dispensable. Immediately, on his own volition,- lie asked to be released to the draft board. A man of Giuslnirg'.s talent is much loo valuable to waste toting a rifle or a machine gun. lien with a'fraction of his ability are wearing two bars, and even oak leaves, on their shoulders. Why such a fuss if the Army wants to make sound use of his services. Red Tape Why must persons who bring sugar or cofl'ee into the country surrender ration tickets? Isn't somebody forgetting the reason for rationing those commodities, or perhaps being unduly bureau- •crutic? Sugar and. cofl'ee are rationed because we lack suflicicnt transportation to import enough for everybody. If a man who has been out of the country chooses lo bring back a few pounds of sugar or coffee on his person or in his car, he is not burdening transportation facilities or taking an unfair share of what has been brought in for everybody.. It sec his highly technical, .under siich circumstances, lo make him surrender coupons.

Because- .ot ...the-?,-19«>, experience and Ihe current shortage ot farm labor, there hus been a trccndous rcdiinlloii In acreage. Many farmers, loo, are hesitating to .set, out -1944 plants because of market uncertainties. The West Tennessee crop value is about $1,00,000,-and tlicrcforc this -arda lias a tremendous stake In >vlial the Office' of Price Administration docs about removing some of the restrictions on sugar which could be used for preserving purpose.;. 1L is something which requires immediate attention in Washington. Once the crop Is ripe' il will be too lulc, if OPA waits until then, as •11 did lust year, lo attempt lo meet the requirements. If Ihc strawberry to be marketed there must be liberalization in .sugar allowances for preserving purposes, and Ihis lime there'll be .no excuse for OPA bungling. That agency has had ample time to make np its mind. —Commercial Appeal.
