Newspaper Publishers Ass'n MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1949 At Fiddler's Creek Research and invention have lightened the backbreaking work that has been the traditional portion of the farmer. But most of it has been concerned with problems of large farms, -which lend themselves most readily to mechanization. A majority of the farms in the United States are small farms, which need the /experimentation, and the resulting improvements, which have been carried on at the ISO-acre farm of Paul M. Mazur, New York economist and banker, near Lambcrton, N. J. There have been some remarkable developments at Mr. Mazur's Fiddler's Creek Farm. Soon after he bought the place as a weekend retreat, Mr. Mazur was struck by the economic waste involved in paying farm hands S1.50 an hour to feed animals. This led to thoughts about other conditions on the small farm which needed attention, and finally to a Rutgers College of Agriculture for a scries of experimental projects. The initial results have just been unveiled. They promise the farmer greater ease and lower operating costs. Included are new barns and silos with automatic devices which permit cattle to feed themselves. Hay is stored and cured and guided to the feeders mechanically. It has been found possible to reduce labor on dairy and beef farms 35 per cent. The time thus saved is put to profitable use by the development of additional activities, among them turkey raising and bacon and turkey smoking. Other experiments have shown that increased fertilization can expand the productivity of Eastern soils. Tc the man on the city street all this may seem not very important—until he remembers that without the farmer he couldn't live and work in the city. Anything that makes farm work less burdensome is added assurance of a stable food supply for the cities. Mr. Mazur and Rutgers and the industries which have cooperated with them deserve a vote of thanks. Nature's Balance Reports from Kansas are to be the effect that coyotes are getting out of hand. They're going into the barnyards and into the barns for their red meat. Farmers complain they cannot make a profit raising sheep because of coyote depredations. Farmers' wives are ,angered by the disappearance pf poultry flocks. All this despite the long war on coyotes, the frequent encircling drives and the bounty on their scalps. Is the coyote morj numerous than formerly? Farm, experts say not. He has been kept down by trap, poison and gun. But he has lost his food supply, the • rabbit, and to survive he has found it necessary to ^row bolder. His raids on shcepfold, calf- pen and henhouse 'make it appear that he is more numerous. The coyote now" reducing the farmer's profits would hardly have been in evidence 20 years ago when he could dine right out on the prairies. The plains country became convinced that the jackrabbit had to go the way of the buffalo. Armies of hunters, shotguns in hand, encircled vast areas and closed In. Sometimes, they got a coyote or two. Always they slaughtered jackrabbits by truckloads. In the meantime city hunters, seeking somehthing to shoot, decimated the ranks of the prolific cottontail. Kansas is about out of rabbits and the coyote is eating the sheep tand the hen. Here is a renewal of the lesson it seems each generation must learn anew. Unless man cooperates with nature by preserving nature's t>alance he pays penalties. When Kansas so blithely killed its rabbits, no one paused to consider that it is .difficult to make a vegetarian out of a coyote. Western Berlin "When Russia decked out the East German ''republic" in sovereignty, no matter how phony, the Soviets deliberately were playing with the fire of German nationalism. The danger was that the Western powers, in competition, would do likewise with their West German regime. But unearned concessions apparently are not in the books for the Western Germans. United States High Commissioner McCloy made that clear by announcing that the present Occupation Statute would stand as is. Three-power economic support for Western Berlin—both direct and through the West German government — cannot be considered an unearned concession. That once-beleaguered city has hcnn in an economic tailspin ever since the Soviet blockade was ended. Western Berliners should be helped now not only as a reward for having resisted communism, but also out of- Western self-interest. The West should not lose the Berlin foothold by default after literally having risked war to- hold it during the perilous days of the airlift. As for the Bonn government itself, there are reports of possible gestures, rather than concessions, on the part of the Allied High Commission. The principle among these would-be the ending of the formal state of war. This would not have the full influence of a peace treaty, such as Eastern Germany expects from Russia, but it would demonstrate Western Power confidence in the Bonn administration. Otherwise, Mr. McCloy has indicated that if the Western Germans want major operational changes they must merit them, not expect a further profit out of Soviet-United States differences. They can prove themselves by cooperating witn the Ruhr Authority. When that's been done, it will be time enough to talk about an independent foreign office and such other extensions of self-rule to the Western Germans. Do You Remember?

Eat butter, cream, pastries .candy, salad oil, cakes, and all things containing quantities of sugar very sparingly, or better, not at all.
