They went a long way toward overcoming the., first big hazard — discuuruKemenr The farjnpis r know need a grant, many things, such ns help, machinery, and fertilizer, but the thing ihcv needed most about the middle of March was hope. Many farmers think farm problems lini-c been pretty muddled. .Tiiey think farm experts should have been called loiijj ago to help formulaic a better farm program.. Now. to say Ihe least, they are more encouraged. While the spokesmen for agriculture were themselves not in complete agreement on methods their objectives \ycrc the same and they got down lo cold facts o.utck- ly. One of them, Ezra Benson, emphasized the (act that "parity" is no longer an issue; even price ins nn end in ilselfj is not an issue. The big objective is to get production of food, as much ns possible of the kinds most needed. To Ihis end, price is only a means. ]3ut the most hopeful sign lo me is (lie fnct tlml the president, in this extremity, called experienced form experts for ndvjce instead of classroom experts full of unproved the- Men,Women!01d?

Moreover I hope this sign indicates Hint ih c same principle "•ill be applied in all other import- "»t fields, if so, it Heralds tlie He- Binning of greater confidence jn many quarters. More (iood News Some favorable developments have come about in the aarlcnl- tiiral man-power problem. P.irm- ers are moving from factory towns back to tlie soil in unexpected numbers, and tlie President has ridiculed hl.s- approval of lifting limitations on the manufacture of farm machinery and repair parts steps urged by farm Jeaders. biit taken too late to be 100 per cent cffcctiyc (his year, The iowi esli- malcs a a per cent decrease in production from 1042, probably a conservative estimate.

This is imperative for, the fuuire of democracy.

We could w'n over the axis powers and still lose all we are fighting for. Doniestic problems are still perplexing, but it fe pleasant to report this particular hopeful turn • of events on tlie home front, That,. Is a miner severe penalty for anyone doing- his patriotic duty lo (its country.

The catches on passing nn amendment to the social .security Jniv which would «utonmtlcally freeze any benefits a worker may linve accumulated before uoinu Into the armed services seem lo be three: 80.MH NOT ON SOCJ-U, SECUKITV First, not everyone going Into tlie services has any benefits coming lo him. The wny the law now stands, it covers only workers In industry or commercial jobs. Agrl- ciillurial workers, domestic servnuis. housewives nnd such aren't eligible for coverage under socla) security, Uut n lot of these people BO into various branches of Iho Army ami Navy, just, as do people' from commercial and Industrial occupations. The hitler are no better limn Ihc former or vice versa, and to let Ihc people who in civilian life used to enjoy the social security benrfits hiins onto all [base benefits while (heir brothers and sisters in arms don't, enjoy stmillar privileges Is a decided BJ'l'- Second, the social security Imv specifically excludes from eoverarie all government employes, : md tiuU of course exchldc,s Ihoso In the armed forces. AJIMV AND. NAVY 1!Ki\)-:iTJ'S Third, Army and Navy people lirivp certain other benefits of thcii own in Hie way of allotments lo Dependents, which arc not available U> civilians. Also the service people can take out . war risk Insurance which In a manner of speaking might be considered just anothci form of social security. Giving- the people In' service those benefits plus facial security n^lght by some be considered loo much. Anyway, Hint's (lie muddle What to do about it? A change In the laiv Ls the /list iwiuisttc If anything nt all Ls to be done, and there are two principal approaches lo that question. Ffi'.sl, free the rights of all workers as of Ihc time (hey enter tlie scrvies and guarantee' them the same rights when Ih'ey return lo civilian lile. Second, co'nsider military service as covered employment, so that, .social security benefits would continue to accumulate Under tills latter approach. It would probably be necessity to extend coverage lo everyone in lh e service regardless of whetliei- they enjoyed coverage before. Senator Theodore J-'rances Green of Providence.

NO AfORE HIGH-OCTANE GAS We use lower-octane gas today, so our flyers may have liigh-octane fuel. To prevent wasteful "pinging," your engine should be readjusted to its new diet. Whatever service work may be needed, we do the job right. LESS GASOLINE In addition to giving your car a gas-saving, springtime engine tune-up, you should also liave it thoroughly checked for other causes of fuel waste, such as dragging brakes, leaky gas lines or the use of too, heavy lubricants for today's low-speed driving. LESS DRIVING Your generator and voltage regulator should be put in top condition jiow lo guard against the possibility of a rundown battery later on. Your battery itself should be checked at regular intervals. CARS ARE BEING DRIVEN LONGER As your car's mileage goes higher — as your brakes, lights, tires and steering system grow older—a thorough check-up of these features becomes vital to the safety of you and your family. SLOWER DRIVING- SHORTER TRIPS When you don't drive very much or very fast or very far, it's extremely important to keep fresh, clean oil in your engine at all times—because at slow speeds your crankcase ventilation system doesn't have much chance to prevent oil dilulion. THIS wartime spring, it's important that you get your car set nol only for warmer weather, but also for Ihc new kind of driving you're doing today. We offer a springtime service program specifically designed to do both of these jobs.
