Was Added If you Imvc ever seen the flnt valleys of. inland rivers in time of major'flood, you will not need to Ije told why the people QI' Arkansas and Oklahoma are mighty sore about what < they believe has been done to them by the federal government. Squeeze Is Kxplosives Thc Tulsa ami Little Hock chambers of commeice may be wrong on their facts After all, they and (heir fellow ' citi/ens in Oklahoma ami Arkansas )ia\e been under a big strain, as thousands of acres of good farmland and the homes of thousands of people were flooded by the rampaging Arkansas river But they have made charges which deserve lo be investigated thoroughly and impartially. .These business men allege that the greatest flood in a century, in thc'n^ area, was intensified by improper use of a dam that was built with public moneys for the express purpose of controlling Hoods. They believe that conditions would have been belter if there had been no control dii.mal all. ';Tlie story, briefly, is this: ' The 1'ensacola dam on Grand river, a tributary of the Arkansas, was built to maintain a 735-foot reservoir of water for making electricity, with 20 feet cif depth left free to .restrain excess waters that otherwise would contribute to floods. But because certain railroad facilities and highways have not been removed, only 750 [eel of water can be retained in the reservoir. This ail'-' tomalically-destroys one-fourth of the dam's potential effectiveness against floods. : ; Now comes the rub. Thc chambers of commerce allege that, in order to make more elcclricily, the power pool was additional 10 fceV, which destroyed- another half of the. dam's anti-flood capacity. * ; " • « .; . . Then came a flood—a bach one, ,IC there had -been'20 feel of storage, for .which the people had paid, or if there had been even 10 feet of storage, the. P.ensacola dam would have held all of the excess water. •.-..'/. • But'because .-power hail been .made the primary objective of;the develop-! ment, and 'not merely an incident, four feet of water Had to be dumped into' Ihe shcam that swept down the Arkansas Valley.'isolatcd Fort Smith-without water supply, also cut oil" the water supply of Camp Robinson, large Army post, broke Big Inch—ili'e critically'im- portant petroleum pipeline to the ICast —and caused hiige damage, that not only is tragic to thc individuals concerned but that will reduce the duction of..: much needed crops season. pro- Ibis The \\'At I'orduclion Board, explaining the importance of fat-salvage by housewives, nolcs that "the squeeze between uncontrolled livestock prices and ceiling rcgvilations governing sales of fresh meat has resulted in packers and butchers leaving more than a normal amount of fat on meat reaching America's fables." Once again there is emphasized the weakness of halfway measures in the drive against inflation, liccausfc control dtie.s not extend all along the line, the housewife gets more fat meat, which increases the cost of the edible portion—-KO the effective price of meat has risen notwithstanding the ceiling. Meanwhile the packer has less fat to contribute to munition makers; housc- wiv v es must be begged to save their driblets; Ibe government must wait, worry anil pay more for the fat it does get. " All because one more administrative order was not thought through in advance. What Is Efficiency? The null's eye- "1 don't see why my husband comes fo these ball lie jusl works himself up inlo a rajjc every, time over xnnipthin« or nlhci'i" something or oilier!" THIS CURIOUS WORLD The old question as to. what, constitutes, efficiency in .shipbuilding is revived by Figures presented by the Baltimore Sun, which reports that the Bctlilcbcm-Kiiirliold yard there is using less man-hours than either of its prin- • cipal competitors for the efficiency title, the North Carolina Shipbuilding Company and Henry Kaiser's Oregon yard. On llic other hand North Carolina is turning ouL craft at an average cost, of 557(3,000 and Kaiser for $675,000, ills' eluding fees, while Bethlehem's cost is estimated presently ?GGO,000 exclusive : of fees, f . In any event, the nation's shipbuild- , crs arc'building five vessels a day, in -.. addition-loVnav'ril craft, which lops'the; 1 rest of the 1 world's combined production. r lhu two chambers of commerce may be wrong, though the fads would seem to speak for themselves. Many will credit their charges because the federal government consistently has' used subterfuges . lo create public power projects under pretense Dial they were doing olher and constitutional tilings— controlling floods, for example, ;md navigation. .-.• • SO THEY SAY if the United Nations leave Japan alone to •consolidate'her gains it will not only strengthen Japan's position, tout also aid Hitlerite Germany.

TVie saving might be as much as $7 per person per year. You should be thankful for even these small favors, but wall a minute. When there isn't a normal supply or meat available, at any price, what gocd does it do to roll back Ihe price? You save money on meat when there isn't any meat lo buy, but you don't save any more—even if tlie prire Is rolled back—on thc meat that Isn't Iherc. The primary probl:m is to Ret more meal for you to buy. Will cutting Ihe price, and theVi pnyuig a subsidy to Ihe inert parkrr eventually mean that the livestock grower will get a few cents more per pound, thlius encouraging htm lo raise more meal animals?
