Keep Off the Grass - You Paid For It Please, ,keep .off the gross! That old, familiar phrase once more is being pressed into use as weary gross growers attempt to establish their lawns this spring. Even Grass Grower (and County Judge) Faher White is having his troubles. After having his men do excellent face-lifting jobs on the Blytheville and Osceola court house lawns, Judge White is finding that the lax-pnyers who own ,the ground won't keep off their own grass. Let's make our court houses loo'ic as they appear on the colored postcards (where the grass, thanks to nn artist's brush, is always green) by cooperating and using walkways. And while we're at it, be mindful of efforts of other grass growers. They are a hardy lot and have grown accustomed to abuse over the years, but they need convincing occasionally that their efforts are appreciated. So encourage the grass growers, and enjoy tiie benefits of more attractive communities. . . . Keep Off the Grass! Early Release of Convictec Criminals Is Puzzling The Arkansas Federation of Woman's Clubs, meeting recently in Little Rock, took cognizance of a situation which has long been a painful one to politician and citizen alike. The group drafted a resolution condemning release of criminals before expiration of their terms. Governor McMath has been rather lenient of late in granting furloughs to men whom various judges and juries thought dangerous enough to be put away for safekeeping. Law enforcement officials in many states have bemoaned the fact that a great part of their job is ferreting out criminals who have been convicted one or more times. And of course there are those who say that the parole and furlough systems are necessary to return these men to active duty as civilians. But unless we've been laboring under a serious misapprehension for years, murder, rape, assault with intent to kill and other disregard for a neighbor's person and property constitute heinous violations of the prime laws of God and man. Just why persons who violate these tows think they should have clemency ten't quite clear. The reason for turning these criminals loose to pursue their fiendish careers in our society probably will remain even more obscure , , . even •with u election coming up. 3 o!itical Campaigns Will Be Devoid of Tax-CutPromises No matter who occupies the White House next January, we are not likely to enjoy any early reduction in (axes. From the most conservative to the roost liberal candidate for President, we are hearing pessimism on that score. Senator Russell of Georgia, newest entry in the presidential lists, is also the latest to discourage hope of a speedy tax cut. He docs see some chance of a material slash in the budget, but believes tax relief must be deferred until at least 1955. Neither President Truman nor any of the other Democratic hopefuls talks of easing taxes. Their emphasis is on the burdens facing government. On the Republican side, General Eisenhower's specific views on taxes are not known. It may be fairly assumed . from his general economic philosophy that he would favor reduction when it is practical. But he is a strong backer of foreign aid and rearmament, the two heaviest drains on the federal treasury; hence he is unlikely to consider as "practical" any tax trimming that would endanger those programs. Senator Taft advocates tax cutting in his primary stumping tours. But he is trying to make it thoroughly understood that he does not pretend this goal could be quickly achieved. To questioners he declares the first order of business is to chop expenses, since they currently outrun revenues by several billions. Taft sees no point in a tax reduction until government outlays are below present receipts. He does not predict when this might be accomplished, but rather loaves the door open on the possibility that the job might consume a couple of years. The American citizen thus should realize that he will not be voting for immediate tax cuts this fall. At the very most, he can cast his ballot for reduced government expenditures. That is all Rtiy major candidate is promising as a starter. Even if n presidential contender should pledge himself to slash taxes right off, he probably would be forced by the sober responsibilities of White House power to abandon the plan. To move to pare revenues while they are well behind expenses would be a foolhardy gesture. It would push the government into heavy borrowing to make up a deepening deficit, and thereby drive the national debt higher than ever. Somewhere there must be"a limit to this kind of practice, even in the United States. Most politicians are reluctant to strain the country's credit to find that limit. So file away those dreams of prompt tax relief. For quite a while you'll be working for the government — unofficially—for more days a week than you care to contemplate.

The flOO-n-month figure is on one- .shift production for nil presently- pJnnneri aircraft manufacturing facilities. By stepping up operation to two or three shifts, as in war-time, production could be doubled or tripled. * * * KUSSIAN A1KCHAFT production is now variously estimated at 1000 to 1800 planes a month, or up to double U. S. output. One reason given for higher Russian production is that the Soviet has frozen its design and turned lo mass production of existing models — basically the MIG-I5 Jet interceptor. IN AUDITION to present one- shift aircraft production operation, U. S. plane output is much lower than World W a r II because of greater complexity of new plane^n. On a typical weight today is fighter, the totp.l 14.000 pounds ns War II weighed about 53,0' pounds. It cost $402,000, The Bo ing B-47 bomber weighs 181,0 pounds and costs $3,476,000. Po w e r of the ne \ver pi n ue eight times "greater. Speed j bomb load are two-and-a-half times greater. Combat radius is double. Yet the new plane operates ivilh a crew of three men, as compared to eight on a B-17. + » • ELECTRONIC gear — radar, rocket-firing a n d navigational equipment — have added greatly to complexity, cost and production lime ou the newer aircraft. A typical fighter in the last war had 515 electrical wires, as compared to 5500 no\v. This gear adds £77,000 to the cost of the finished plane. While the stretch-out of the defense production program has relieved some of the shortages and bottlenecks in the aircraft industry, not all problems have been solved. A rim. DeWilt C.
