'It Is true that the enemy has taken advantage of the long stalemate to build up his power and resources," the general snid, 'We estimate now that the enemy is 2 l ,'a times greater than the United Nations In numerical combat strength. "We estimate that he has a two to one numerical superiority In artillery. "Hut ho Is inferior to us In tanks and ulr capabilities. "We also believe that « tho :nemy strike! again, he will use all tho air power at his disposa nd will use both fighters and lombcrs to the best of his ability.'

In fact, most of them already have gone there, as dog food, nt two cents a jjound. Rep.-John Rankin (D-Miss) described to. a reporter sadly how talent scouts for pet catcreres have swarmed into the cotton belt and toted away the hard-tailed ornaments of Dixie's mule barns. The mule, he said, Is a casualty of the machine age. It took on the tractor, and the tractor won. The new South can hardly spare 7.00 room for a hammer headed hybrid whose carburetioii system burns timothy and oats needed for an expanding dairy industry. Rep. Clarence Cannon ID-Mo), whose district tailored a i [ heavy-duty cotton Field mule to planters' specifications, confirmed that the tractor had almost completely displaced it. "The bottom has dropped out of the mule market," the Missourian mourned. "For a majority of the formers in my country, tnules were otice the bi? c.ush crop. Now the mule industry has practically disappeared." So. Dakota GOP eet Hears Cries Of 'Smear/ Paris PIERRE. S.D.
