Truman Inspired by Boothill Graveyard Tombstone, Ariz., (if) —Epitaphs in Boothill Graveyard here tell some of the story of early Tombstone—the town "too tough to die." President Truman gave national prominence to the .western lore of the cemetery when he paralleled his white house efforts to the life of a cowboy whose headstone reads, "Here Lies Jack Williams. He done his damndest." Many of the original epitaphs of the men who died with their "boots on" were collected by souvenir hunters before a watch was kept over the graveyard. Boothill's first group of graves mark the climax of the famous Clanton-Earp feud which ended with blazing gun play 67 years ago. The single marker reads: "Tom McLowery, Frank McLowery, Bill Clanton—'Murdered on the streets of Tombstone.' " That's the quoted opinion of Clanton sympathizers. Then there's George Johnson who had a sad demise. He was— 'Hanged by Mistake," or so his marker reads.

Last week the department forecast a 1,242,000,000 bushel wheat crop for 1948 and the largest corn harvest in history, 3,329,000,000 bushels. This huge grain output will probably mark the end of an era, officials said. More than 71,000,000 acres are being sown to wheat this year •A cutback to 65,000,000 acres within the next 3 years was considered likely, officials said. : State goals for 1949 wheat production will be announced next week. They have to be determined early because winter wheat planting in the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma starts in September.

Walter Blucher, director of the American Society of Planning Officials, blamed the shortage of housing. "Let us not kid ourselves about urban re-development," Blucher said. "We have legislation providing for slum clearance in 24 states but almost nothing has been done." Public housing, financed by cities, states and the federal government, must accompany any reconstruction done by private enterprise, Blucher said. _ • "The hard fact is," Blucher said, "that many of the laws contemplate rebuilding of blighted areas and that there are no housing facilities available for those who will be displaced from the slums and blighted areas."
