Secretary of Navy Frank Knox and Secre? taryl of War Henry L. Stimson warned that the services could not administer effectively' "diverse procedures" of the 48 states "as to 11,000,000 servicemen all over the world in primary, special and general elections." M e a n w h i 1 e, Representative George Bender ' (R-Ohio) praised "the good intentions" of governors who have sought to solve the sol. dier vote problem through special sessions of their legislatures, but said that "despite these good intentions our soldiers are not going to be able to vote unless the con- provides them with a simple, uniform federal ballot" The Knox-Stimson statement vas issued in reply to an inquiry rom the council of state governments, and was made public by he council. The statement said the war and lavy departments "do not advo- ate or oppose any particular vot- ng legislation" and that their pol- cy was to "assist and encourage ervicemen to vote, so far as prac- icable and compatible with mili- ary operations." It said that uniform legislation covering handling of absentee bal- ots would "tend to make more icssible an effective co-operation y the services." The senate, after rejecting a plan for federally-administered voting, passed a measure simply urging the states to expedite the process.

The conference was called by the Iowa State college agricultural extension service and the state defense commission to make plans for the 1944 Victory garden program. The slogan was the contribution of Mrs. Gordon Elliott, Des Moines, president of the Federated Garden clubs, but the thought was reiterated by practically every speaker in calls for more gardens and increased production from, plots used in 1943. The estimated 40,000 gardens in Iowa last rear must be increased to at least 44,0*0 In 1944, it was emphasized, U Iowa is to meet larger national quotas. Iowa should increase more than the 10 per cent national firure because of having a larger proportion of the good land, it also was suggested. Iowa's housewives canned more than 125,000,000 quarts of fruits and vegetables in their homes during 1943, it was estimated by Mrs. Ruth Hicks, food and nutrition specialist of the extension department. Her survey also showed that every family contacted had a garden except those who were unable to handle it because of illness or where both members of the family were working or some such acceptable reason. Spoilage was very low except in the case of corn and tomatoes, according to the survey. Mrs. Hicks declared that the spoilage of tomatoes indicated Z things: That the canners were not following accepted canning practices and that canning equipment was not of the best. The conference was assured Arthur Piehn, 57, Former Mail Carrier, Dies Suddenly Services to Be Held at Chapel at 2:30 on Friday Afternoon Funeral services for Arthur William Piehn, 57, who died suddenly Wednesday at his home, 325 3rd N.

There will be plenty of hand gardening tools, the WPB has promised, and pressure is being brought to increase the production of wheel hoes still further. Lots of first year gardeners did a better job in 1943 than some of the veterans who did less work, declared Paul Stark, Louisiana, Mo., president of__the National Victory Garden council. He said that food is the dominant world problem of 1944 regardless of what happens along military lines. Top food production can hasten the military victory, however, he insisted. He quoted national and international authorities that rationing of food will continue for a year or two after the war has ended and for 4 or 5 years in England. Director R. K. Bliss of the extension department, who presided, also asserted that it will take all the nation's food producing capacity to continue the present allied strategy in dealing with liberated peoples. The nazis and Japs robbed and starved them; we feed and re-establish them, he pointed out. Gov. B. B. Hlckenlooper stated that food and industrial production by this nation is a challenge to dictatorship, proving; indisputably that people working under a system of free enterprise can outproduce those who are regimented. Marion E. Olson, Cerro Gordo county extension director, told the conference of the organization perfected by Charles F. Weaver, the OCD garden director for the county, particularly in getting gardeners off to a proper start.

Stark, apple grower and nurseryman from Louisiana, Mo., addressed the state victory garden conference Wednesday, at which federal, state and local agricultural and garden groups were represented. "Food now is recognized by the army, navy and other government officials as a munition o£ war-just as important as xvarships, airplanes and tanks. A shortage of food supplies to our armed forces, our allies or our war workers would be disastrous--both to our yar effort and our post-war ac- ivities," he said. Stark said a recent survey showed that 47 per cent of the fresh vegetables eaten in 1943 came from victory gardens, giving the movement a place as a major food production front. "It is the institute's aim to increase the production from victory gardens in 2 ways: To increase the number of gardens through co-operation of industrial plants which will sponsor gardens and to increase garden crops by more efficient gardening methods," he said.
