All right, Air Force, hut rliti you have to keep things up in the air so long? The lateet saucer rash soared to . some sort of a dizzy record over Washington a few days ajjo.? First the Air Force wouldn't even sen<i up inteirep- tw planes to investigate "unidentified objects" flyiHjf over the capital. A week later the Air Defense Command ordered planes to lake off instantly to chnse saucers, spoons, teacups, or any other unidentified eating ulensils sighted flyinjf over the country, anywhere, any time. ' So the Cml Aeronautics Administration got on its horse — the flying Pegasus, o/ course — and rijrfit awjiy saw some things in the sky that needed chasing. But it took more than two hours for the Air Force to get interceptor planes up. The flylio.vs said this reflected no lack of alertness on their part, only confusion. O.K. A couple of days later, Civil Aeronautics Administraiion radar observers, which had busily deen sighting everything bul pie in the Washington sky, cooled off suddenly nnd cnmplplcly. The CAA traffic control renter spotted things in t tic air for six hours but; didn't even trll ilie Air Force. "We were too busy with other things," was the surprising ex-plriuafion. "And liesides those objects aren't hurting anybody." And ihe Air Force, didn't sewn to mind, despite the fact that only a couple pie of days before jet pilots had been ordered to take to the sky jnitneciiately to chase everything lhat couldn't be identified. By this lime, the public, already a iittle unhinged by the heat and two political convention?. \vas about ready for the trembly ward. Various official and unofficial explanations were forthcoming in bewildering variety. The things were everything from trucks to the product of war- jumpy nerves. So (lie Air Force Meld a press conference to allay things. H said it was getting some scientists in lo investigate the mailer and meantime ihere wasn't anything to worry .about. The consensus on the latest saucer business; was that the hot, humid wea- there had jtroducwl some refl.'rtiJms in tha sky which looked like solid objects. Most likely, the Air Force wishes tin's saucer business was over and done with. Or at leasi wishes for an explanation thai would satisfy (he cun'nus pul>- )Js. The USAF denials don't seem to have stopped any .of these saucers from flying.

The main point is that all this would not increase our per- fonal expenses one penny. The profit from the two utilities would iMiance our civic needs and to spare. t ! ^^ The people employed locally by these systems are the people who are aetuall.v doing the work. They have the know how and there is no reason for them to feel that a change lo municipal ownership would affect their jobs. The management of this operation should .slay out c.f politics and he a job for trained personnel under lite supcrvisum of a board of directors composed of civic leaders out of politics. Such a move would not cost us one, single dnl- lar (n hard to get cold rash. It would not constitute a lien on our property but would pay for itself on the. basis of present operation.

Peter Edson's Washington Column- Parties Bid for Farmers Vote Knowing It Can Swing Election WASHINGTON —I NBA I— The ficht for the farm vole in the November providential elections is igain crucial. .lion that it was the fnrm vote opposition to Republican farm policies of I94R which gave Wisconsin, Illinois. Iowa, and Ohio to the Democrats, nnd so enabled President Truman to w i n Feler KAum ,v, e election tour Tars ago... ; Afler the Chicago conventions in Inly, a number oi farm-state ncw.s- inper editors in attendance cx- iresseri some fears that "The Re- liiblicilns may have done it again." By (his they meant that the Ke- mnlioan platform farm planks riirt lot offer the farmers a program is much to their liking as the }emocrntic platform. This opinirm vas expressed in spite of the eclit- >rs' natural preference for the Re- Miblicnn ticket. A comparison of Ihe farm planks n the two platforms, item by tern, is therefore a matter of keen merest in [lie Midwest. Farm planks in the Republican platform are expressed in 12 para- rrnph.s. In the Democratic orm IK. Three paragraphs in Ihe Republican platform criticizes the Democratic farm record. The cenernl charge, of tho Re- ibltcans is lhat the Democratic nriminisfration has been "seeking to destroy the farmers' freedom." The Democratic platform answer ' lhat under these programs Ihe armors' annual Income has been niscd from $2 billion to SIS bil- lon. (JO! 1 OIIIIOSP-K Tlrjnnan J'Un The Republican platform con- emns the proposed hut never ! adopted Brannan farm plan. The j Democratic platform doesn't men- I tion it hy that name. I On the question of price supports for perishable farm errjps, ! ^ r bich is the essence of the Bran: nan plan, the Democratic platform : sp.ys. "We continue to advocate. . \ extending pi'ice supports lo other : storables 'crops) and lo. . .perish- lable commodities winch account I for three-fourths of all farm in- i come." The P«-ij>iblie.i>i plalfonn plank | on perishable coinmodities says, ] ". . .we recommend locally controlled marketing nBreemcnts and other voluntary methods." On price supports for non-per; ishable crop-••, Ihe Republican plat- j iornj favors "a farm program aimed al full parity prices for all [farm products in the market j place." The Democratic platform : .says. ". . .we will continue to protect the producers of Viasic agricultural commodities under the terms I of n mandatory price-support program at not less than 90 per cent of parity." The Republican platform defends i the flexible price-support plan ini- i tiateci by the Republican-controlled i SOth Consrress Ln 1948. The Demo- j cratic platform specifically con- I demns it, | The Republican platform calls ' fir "on-the-farm" crop storage. |Tho Democratic platform calls for "adcuuatc storage facilities. . . for needed 'reserves for defense ; and orher emergency require- 1 ment.s, in order to protect the in- r terrify of the farm price-support j proyraniF." 1 It was on tiiis crop storage Isi sue that the Republicans stubbed . their toes in IDtB. Their l!)iS3 pint' form shows no change In view. The Republican piattorm calls only for "voluntary, self-supporting j crop insurance." The Democratic platform calls [nr expansion of the 1 present federal insurance pro- ] Rram. which it defends as now developed into "a sound business operation." Want Expanded Farm Credit The Republican plairorm mentions only in passing (he need for "sufficient farm credit." The Democratic platform devotes a full i paragraph to this subject, calling : for continued and expanded farm 1 credit for young men. veterans, j tenants and low income farmers, i lo assist them in becoming farm | owners. Both platforms pledge support fo farmer co-operatives. The Democratic platfrom goes farther in a promise of "protection from punitive taxation." The Republican platform urges "further development of rural electrification and communication (rural telephones) with federally assisted power. . .when not available through private enterprise at fair rates." The. Democratic platform lakes credit for having developed the rural electrification program nnd cailf, for Its expansion to every farm home without the GOP pri- vaie power restriction. Both platforms call about equally for expanded soil conservation programs, agricultural research and education, development of new domestic and foreign farm markets, flood prevention and the decentralized, local administration of all farm programs. The Republican platform, conies^ up with something new in a proposal for R bi-partisan federal agricultural commission with power to' review all farm policies and recommend changes. The. Democratic plalform stresses development of the family-sized farm and the continuation of agricultural adjustment programs, which it claims have done much to stabilize the D.S. farm economy of today.

"* the well too often. If you get away with your pre-emptive bid nnd the opponents persist, let them have their way. otherwise, you may give them a second chance to choose between a penalty double and a further bid. In today's hand Soulh got away with his very skimpy pre-emptive bid of three spades. West could have doubled immediately but was not sure that he would get suff- cient value. His bid of three no- trump seemed like n reasonable expression of his hand. North was not satisfied to let the opponents take the game that they obviously could make. He put his neck out on the block hy bidding four diamonds. East could have doubled with good effect, bul was uncertain nnd therefore chose io take the sure game at hearts. ^ North, still not satisfied, tested the opponents' patience once too often. The bid of four spades finally earned the double that North was apparently seeking. Strangely enough, the result didn't please him. West opened the acn of hearts and continued with the queen when East signaled enthusiastically with the jack of hearts. East overtook the second heart with the king in order to lay down the nee of spades. He then shifted to a low club. South ducked, and West took the king of clubs. West next cashed the king of sparfes. and East made the IhoughlCul discard of the jack of diamonds. Kast reasoned that West would not have bid three no- trump with a singleton or doubleton in diamonds. Hence It was never going to be necesxary for East to refuse a diamond trick. After drawing dummy's second I rump, West switched back to hearts. Now declarer could ruff and draw trumps, but he was bound to lose two more club tricks. He could %vfn only four trumps and the ace of clubs, therefore suffering a penalty of 900 points.
