I ' "Farmers are gelAing educated to the use of fertilizers and the output doesn't seem'.able to keep up with the demand.V h« said. Gathings would like to see the House Agriculture Con-^mittee make • study of the whole msktter, including supply, ways to Increase the •upply, costs and labeling, Farmers In his area, he «aid, are tremendously Interested in the subject. Since lie Is a member of the Agriculture Committee, Gathings stands a good chance of getting some such study ms'de. However, since . Republicans ,•' rather than Democrats will control the next Congress, the decision will rest with Rep. Hope R-Kan), who is slated to take over as chairman. 1 bathings said farmers in his area are Inclined lo think some legislation may be 'needed to require exact labeling of ingredients In commercial fertilisers.

"Well," he said, "I don't know that anyone who got as few votes as I did In the last election should be In politics." Which leaves the question an answered.

Mamie Calls on Bess at Whitehouse, Gets First Look at Her Home-to-Be By RUTH COWAN WASHINGTON l*V—Mrs. Dwlght Eisenhower dropped In at the- White House on Pennsylvania Avenue today- for a visit with Mrs. Harry Truman. And you should have seen the excitement! " i- Cameramen dashed this way and that, lining up the two .women for pictures. Reporters scurried about, ' taking: copious notes on what the two women were wearing. It was, In Us own way,, an historic occasion, for Mamie Eisenhower .was calling on Bess Truman to make an on-the-spot examination of the 54-Toom mansion into which she and her husband will move on Jan. 20. The photographers and reporters were milling around when Mrs. . Eisenhower's car pulled up to the White House door. Mrs. Truman stepped outside to greet the lady- who will succeed her next month as the first lady of the land. The conversation started off like this , .".-•» -Mrs. Truman: "How. are you feeling?" ' • /;Mrs. ; Eisenhower: "Fine." Photographers Take Over Then the t photographers took over. Both J of the ladies smiled : cheerfuly and they didn't seem to mind the sub-freezing temperatures too much. . : Mrs. Truman was less - prepared for the ,cold. She had thrown a short black coat over her shoulders when she went outside, but after a bit she" asked the photographers, laughing as she spofce: "When can we go in?" As might be expected, a photographer told the two foremost women of the land: "All right, you can .- go in." Both of them laughed and they went inside the manson, which has housed every President and first lady .-since the days of John Adams, the nation's second President. Adams moved into the building, which was erected on former swampland, in 1800. And now for the big question: What was Mrs. Eisenhower wearing? ... Hat Draws Comment Well, It ! seems there was some difference of opinion of the pert little hat she wore over her famed bangs. Some reporters said It was the color of. pomegranates; others said it was I&nk, and their versions of that^color ranged from dusty pink to shocking pink. Otherwise, Mamie wore a black frock and over that a full-length soft brown fur coat. Her ear drops were of pearl and she had on, a double choker. She carried a black alligator bag and gloves. Her" shoes, too. were black. Beneath ttiat short black coat ol hers, Mrs. Truman was wearing a blue dress. With Mrs. Eisenhower was her secretary. Miss Mary Jane McCaffrey. The house Into which Mrs. El- senhower and her husband will move next month, is worth millions. Twenty five years ago a tax assessor appraised the house and its grounds fit 22 million dollars, And last- March It arid redecorated at '00,000. • . .. • Obituaries RITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark.

McDonald would switch allegiance from Hay wood to Reulher to avoid any con vention: showdown, provided it be came clear that a Reuther victor was inevitable. • "Unions Have Lost Ground" While Reutiler seemed well in the lead in the race for the CIO's top job, the situation was such that any deviations from the Reuthei 1 forces could put Hay wood across. Tobin said 'that since the Taft- Harttey law became effective five years ago, labor unions" have lost ground so that with the working force steadily growing, "the ranks of (he unorganized have been growing faster than the ranks of the organized." "In the last few months," Tobin said, "there have been reports of growing resislance lo trade union demands among some employers. I do not know what effect the election of Gen. Eisenhower will have on this attitude. But I do not think it is likely to discourage It. "However constructive and benevolent the general's labor policy may prove to be, some of the men, he has carried .with him to power 'are ndl going to make the atmosphere any more friendly to trade unionism. They may make it a lot more hostile."

In an exchange of letters with Elsenhower, Dr. Robert L: Johnson, Temple's president, described he study as "nonpartisan" -and aid: "Research reports are being prepared by specialists in the various "major -fields of government. These reports will be th'e )asis of recommendations for simplifying the structure of the government, taking account both of he steps already taken in this leld' and, of new problems." Johnson, formerly chairman of he Citizens Committee for the ioover Report, a group supportr ing the report's recommendations ,o streamline operation of the government, added that the new work s being financed by "a special und subscribed by public-spirited citizens." He said he will be glad to make its results available to Elsen- hower's staff.

Any, government that has charges against any employe should give the secretary general full Information. The secretary' general must act on whatever Information he gets, with the aid of a co»flden- tlal loyalty review board. If the information Is not complete, the secretary general can;t be criticized for his final action. The secretary general can fire anybody he can prove has been engaged In activities disloyal to the host country—in this case, the U. S.—or thinks might be disloyal.

Loyalty to their regime is part of the qualification of employers hired from Communist countries-on U.N. national staff quotas. But such employes are resident In the U.

However, don't get set to tune in on the daily doings of the chaps we send to Washington. Public telecasting of the daily business has not yet been decided upon. What is going to happen is that the radio recording equipment in the House of Representatives will be supplemented by television film service in the radio-TV room so that if a member wants a TV film of any session Qr House doing in which he is interested he can have it. But we'll venture an opinion that the time won't be too far away when all Congressional activities will be televised. We rnust not forget that TV can stand a bit of occasional criticism, too, much as we are sold on this new entertainment medium. A national video producer has com'e up with the statement that there is too much "me-too-ism" in television these days. He says: "Too few producers and networks try to do creative thinking. They merely copy whatever is successful, gimmick it up with a slight twist and go on the air. As a result, there is considerable duplication of program types at present." Frankly, we think that it's a hangover from radio and motion picture, and we also think that TV will rise above these two ancestors in creatiyeness and originality. As you know, it doesn't take r.reativeness to properly service a TV set ... what it takes is skill and scientific training, and that's why our technicians are regarded as tons in this field. Remember, our service department is staffed with factory trained technicians ... so when you call us for service, you set service plus dependability. BLYTHEVTLLE SALES CO.; 109 E.
