J00MTUY, OCTOtiKR 10, 19IW BtTTHETTLLl! (AHK.)' COCKIER NEWS PAGE THKEK Both Demos, GOP Keep Close Eye on. Farm. Vote WASHINGTON (AP) Ity DON WHITEHEAn Democratic and Republican scouts are prowling the farm belt these October days checking the political temper of the farmers and then trying to project their readings into the 1950 presidential year in terms of votes. No one yet has found a fool-*proof method of discovering how the farmers will vote. Nor can one suy confidently that farmers will vote as a bloc any more than druggists, electricians, fishermen and golfers. But the guessing game goes on and there is no vote which is s t u d i e d, analyzed, watched, wooed and feared more by politicians than the farm vote. At the present tune, messages From the farm belt are reported to be encouraging to the Democrats because farmers are not happy about farm prices and their own economic position in relation to the industrial worker. The Republicans are concerned because a discontented farm belt could mean trouble at the polls. One GOP scout, recently returned from a trip though the farm country, brought back this story: "I went back to my• homo and visited my brother on the farm where 1 was raised. When I was a kid, mother baked her own bread. We milked our own cows. We canned fruit and all kinds of garden truck. We had fresh eggs and fresh butter and there were frying- chickens running all around the place. We didn't have the modern conveniences, but we lived well. Cheaper TUal Way "My brother gets his bread and butter from the store. He buys milk: and egprs and frying chickens and canned food from the supermarket in town. He says it's cheaper that way. And maybe it is. I don't know. ON HIS WAY—A new child star is being launched in the movies. On the basis of Tim Hovey's work in the new film, "The Private War of Major Benson," he is hailed as another .scene stealei- in the tradition of the great child actors in the prewar period. "He's living better than he everj lived before—far better than we' did as kids. He's even got power steering on his true tor. "But he's sore because prices aren't what he thinks they should be. He says Ezra Benson (Secretary of agriculture) keeps telling farmers they have to expect a leveling off—but that nobody saying- the same thing to the dust rial worker. And he doesn't like it." , , The farm problem is vastly more complex than outlined in this capsule picture, of course, but if. is a part of (.lie whole. 5 Million Farmers There are about five million farmers in the country today.

Tills surprising disclosure came in an address prepared for delivery by Cien. Thomas D. White, vice chiet ol stuff of the Air Force to the Aeronautics Committee of the American Legion's National Security Commission. This would represent a marked switch for the Air Force, since it traditionally has Irowned on any new move by the Navy into the field of aeronautics. Although White did not specify the new Navy jet, nor go into further detail, it appeared obvious he referred to the XP6M-1 Seamaster. This 800-mlle-an-liour plane, powered by four jet engines and built by the Glen L. Martin Co. of Baltimore, has been undergoing flight tests which the Navy says are "unusually promising." It is 134 feet IOIIK. has a wing span of 100 feet, and can carry a 15-ton load—bombs, mines or cargo. The Navy claims the Seamaster can operate anywhere there is water, even from comparatively rougn seas and can be refueled from tanker ships or tanker submarines. White said "we know we can build a nuclear powered airplane" and it will be flying "sometime within the next decade." He said the atomic pane project has been given priority in the Air Force program.
