WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 1950 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE Farm Surpluses May Go Higher Brannan Asks Funds ' For Purchase of Mar* Commodities WASHINGTON, Jan. 25. (/P>—Secretary of Agriculture Brannan said yesterday the government's stake in farm surpluses might reach $6,300.000,000 by the time price support, prograins for 1950 crops are completed. - . The Investment now is slightly more than 53,500,000,000. The bulk is tied up In products such as grains and cotton which can be stored for long periods. ^jjftfrannan made his estimate in Urging the Semite Agriculture Committee to approve a bill to boost price support funds by 52,000,000.000 His estimate assumed, of course, that ample funds will be authorized. The Commodity Credit Corporation—the department's price .supporting agency—now has a support, pool oj $4,750,000,000 including the funds already tied up in surpluses. Brannan said that pool is not large'enough to carry out promises to farmers on this year's crops. The proposed $2,000,000,000 increase In funds was recommended by President Truman in his budget message to congress. The secretary's estimate of a possible $6,300,000,000 outlay on price supports was based upon the assumption that crops would be larger than planned under government production controls. If the year brings only average weather aiid yields, and if there is no serious overplantings of acreage allotments, ihe total investment uiight not go beyond $5,300,000,000, Brannan said. The secretary declared that price Seam-Jitter, Brennschluss, Burple, Burn-Out—It's Guided Missile Talk NOW, SMILE-Baking tlie uiiside-dov-'n cheesecake is Marlene Reilly, a candidate for the title of Chicago's "Miss Photoflash of 1050." Marlene wanted a picture that would be "different." Hy DOUGLAS I.AKSKN SKA Staff Correspondent WASHING TON —CNEA)- Watch your beam-jIUcr, Huster, ic brcnschluss isn't (ar off and ou're about to get a burple from ic burn-out." And there you have a fine sample [ Ol jargon for push-button war- arc. What the first sentence means, pprnximalely, Is, "Keep your eye n the radar screen, young ma", he power in the guided missile s about to shut off and the whole hing is likely to waver In lilt ir." For the enlightenment of anyone vho needs It, Hie Rtscarch aiid development Board of the De- ense Department has just puh- ished a "Glossary of Guided Mis- .ile Terms." It's' a sort of lin- ;uL<itic pussport to the new conversational world created by the scientists working on Uie develop- nem of guided missiles. ff, at this point, you're beginning to get confused, the new glossary has a meaning for the words "circle of confusion," TJI guided missile talk that nieaiu "the circular image of * distant point object as formed in a focal plane by a lens." Does that clear It up? The new glossary doesn't guarantee to make you overnight Into a sllb guided missile gabber. For instance, Ihe term "magnetostric- tion" is lucidly explained as "the change In the dimensions of a ferromagnetic object when placed in a magnetic field." Another term, with Its definition, which is likely to lead the average citizen from nowhere to nowhere ts "stolchlometric." II means "the components involve? in a burning process are jn-csent in. exactly the quantities ncedec for reaction without an excess of any component." Some of the words are lew ones, coined by the scientists- example, there is "hangfire." which means "Hie delayed iRiii- .lon of the propcllaiit." Or, "chuffing," which is defined as "the characteristic of certain rockets to burn intermittently and with an irregular puffing noise." Perhaps the glossary's greatest shock to the man-in-the-street Is brand U revelation of how the giiidec missile boys have mangled the meanings of perfectly eood American words. Take the word "plumbing." To the guided missile cxner it now means "the wave-guide -on- suuction used in microwave sys tein.s, such as radars." And "rat race" to them means he same purpose as the 'Magic Ye' but allows the handling 0 [ reater power." Everybody 5. Bui the knuwt what, a "pad" glossary says it's "a ion-adjustable attenuator." The word "gutter" used to be pretty well understood until the guided missile men snld It means "a por- ion of a flame holder which Is grooved for better opcntlon." They've even elbowed In on that exclusive field, medical terml nology. The book says the "umbilical cord" is "a cable fitted with * fjuick disconnect plug at (ho missile end, through which missile equipment is controlled and tcstct white missile Is still attached to launching equipment or parent plane." Nothing is sacred to them. And, as they siiy in guided missile terminology, let's put an end to this "spillover" which really means "that portion of the air in the stenm-tube which flows to the side of a ramjet intake rather than through the Intake."
