EVENINGS TELL 9:00 FARMERS' PARITY RATIO x Numbers, 1910-1914 Prices Received for All Farm Products, Divided by Prices Paid by Farmers. 1910 1920 1930 President Truman's proposal to "freeze" farm piarity at the beginning of each marketing season Is sure to meet stiff opposition in Congress. Some legislators predict they will still be wrangling over the issue when the present price and wage control law expires June 30. The Newschart above, based on data from the Department of Agriculture and the National Industrial Conference Board, shows how farm prices have stood in relation'to the.parity (so-called fair price)'figure of 100 over the past 40 years. Farm prices are considered a weak link in present price controls. The law exempts farm products from control .as long as they're below parity. The difficulty is that every spark of inflation sends the parity level, a little higher, so-that prices of farm Items now i below parity—such as potatoes, oranges and dairy products—might go sky high and still never 4 reach parity's "magic leveL" J Taft Student Community Chest Donates $1,830 Watertown — The Taft School Student Community Chest has contributed the amount of $1830 to state, national, and international charitable organization, it has been announced here by Thomas Chrystie, chairman of the current committee. -.-..' •• The New Haven Boys' Club, the Connecticut Junior: Republic, Litchfleld, the Waterbury YMCA, the American Red Cross, and the World Student Service Fund are the organizations receiving the largest contributions.

Help The Elk \ (But not too much!) A recent issue of LIFE carried some pictures .showing State of Washington Game Department officials handing out pitchforkfuli of hay to some of the state's hungry elk. Seems that the unusually severe winter had made, it almost impossible for the elk to get their own food. But, reported LIFE, Washington state officials were worried lest the elk should lose some of their self-reliance, forget how to hunt up their own food, and come to depend on regular handouts from the state. - . Well now, how about human beings? How about "welfare" measures . . . handouts from the government? Shouldn't We be careful about accepting too much government assistance lest we get too soft ourselves? The elk heeded their state handout this time . .'. it was a matter of survival.'^But let's hope it doesn't get to be a habit.
