Adamr, says the arid lands of the west could bo made green without itrigation through air sowing of seed pelleted with fertilizer, insecticide and other chemicals. He estimates that use of pellet^ lowers the amount of seed required by 90 percent and in row crops saves the grower $14 or$15 an acre by reducing or eliminating thinning. Already, he says, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina are negotiating to apply the new method to their dsserts. Adams, a retired Seattle dentist, developed the seed and the .plarit- ing method. He persuaded the Interior Department to give his invention a trial on more than 50,000 acres of arid Indian lands in Arizona. In Texas, he has air- planted more than 10,000 acres for private owners. "We think we've got something but we don't want to go out on a limb antt say it's wonderful." say Edward N. Kavanagh. director o Soil and Moisture Conservation o the Interior Department. "Time alone will tell. We shoulc have n better idea this summer a to the results of the seeding o 10.000 acres of the Papago Beserva (ion (near Sells, Ariz.) that wa; done in Juno, 1940. That seedini was folhwed by one of the wettes rainy .seasons on record, and tin .sr-odcd Brass looked pretty good There's nn extreme drought in the, area now, an-J the real test is undei way." At Tuscon, Ariz., Joel Eugene Fletcher, Agriculture Departmen foil technologist, says air sowing, with pnlletcd seed on the Papago Reservation had met with some success, but adds that "the mcthoc doesn't come anywhcvo near comparing with sonic of the othci methods which cost about the same." Adams counters that on a part of the Papago Reservation barren when it was se'cded a year ago, (here were eight bunches of grass per square rod by October. Thirty days later, he says: the plants had -more than doubled although the region had not had 10 inches of rain since June. Adams developed the pea-sized pellets he now employs. They con- lain husked seed, fertilizer, insect and rodent repellents and soil chemicals which may be lacking. At the first touch of rain the pellet dissolves, and the milled scud germinates, much more swiftly than does seed protected by its luill. "In th? southwest," he says, "we have pricipally used Lehmann's live grass, a palatable, hardy import from South Africa! Cattle fed on it gain two pounds Ji day. It will grow with-less than 10 inches of '•fiin a year." Normally at least 15 inches of annual rain is required for minimum forage. In air seeding, the pellets are dropped on a pattern of one to a scjuare foot. Each peliet can con- lain one or a dozen or, more seeds of a single or several grass varieties. Adams says there is a con- Mdar'able saving in fertilizer, since all that is needed is clustered about the seed. Secretary of Interior Krug, in his 1P47 report to the President, said: "Resceding of grazing lands can be speeded up and also be done most economically by plane. "The cost of seeding by tin: method is about S2 an acre, compared to $4 for seeding with ordinary farm machinery," Top o' Texas Pampa News, Thursday., June 12, 1947 PAGE 15 As I See It-- By Sam Lewis Veitch WASHINGTON,, D. C. — The House Labor. Committe last week made news by declaring that a 70- day strike at the Allis-Chalmers plant in 1941 was engineered by one Harold Christoffel at the direction of the Communist Party The grounds the Committee use in making their charge were wind ings of fact, conclusions, and rec ommendations of a subcommiltc which they had appointed to stud the strike and its causes. The Labo Committee said that they hat adopted the report and its accom par.ying statements from the sub committee. They said thai the reason for call ing the strike in that year, whrt neither the U. S. nor Russia wa at war, was that, Russia arid Ger many had a non-agression pact and tho Allls plant was producini navy equipment for u:;c in the figh against Germany by our allies. Rus sia thought this was "imperialism on our part, and she directed tin Allis strike which was dutifuil 1 culled by Mr. ChriKtoffrl, then president of Local 248. United Auto mobile Workers, CIO. The whole investigation grew oil of s. henrliiR held here iti Wash •infiton the first, part of March during which Mr. Chrisloffcl anr Mr. Robert Bins, now president o Lociil 248. both denied that they were members of the Communis Party or oven a somewhat lessci degree of sympathizers referred to as "Communists." The report by the Committee said that there was conclusive evidence" that both had wilfully and feloniously testified" at that time. Perhaps it should be made cleai that, while the 1941 strike was ck'prly marked out as being Communist-inspired, there is no affort made to do the same with the more recent and longer 329-day strike directed by Mr. Buse. That' strike was still in progress at tho time tho Farm Land Boom Nay Be at Peak NEW YORK —(/!')— Farm land sales have slackened almost everywhere, bringing predictions of ar ond of a boom in progress since 1D39. President Truman has asked Secretary of Agriculture Anderson to call a conference of government agencies and farm organizations very soon to develip a program foi "discouraging further inflation in farm real estate prices." Farm land prices are now 02 percent higher than in 1939. The first World War brought a rise of only 70 parccnt from the 1912-H average to 1920, Actual prices, however, are now still 6.5 percent lower than in 1D20, because the 1939 level was below the 1912-14 average. Recent surveys disclose that buyers have become increasingly "reluctant tp pay asking prices. The tobacco stale hftve shown the greatest inflationary tr<*nd. Kentucky farm lands are offered at H7 percent above normal, highest in the nation. Massachusetts, up 28 points, is the lowest. Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina prices alj range between 1.23 and 137 percent above 1939 levels. Pacific Coast states average Increase of 98 percent, and Mkl'.vast "re up 63 percent. There are only two occasions wljen. Americans respect privacy, especially in Presidents. Those are prayer and fishing—so. that some have taken to fishing.—Herbert Hoover.

Henderson, 309 Rose secretary/treasurer. investigation was made, but since thcie were no war materials involved, ihe Commii.tee did not bother to include it in their .study. Citing as further evidence of the uilt of Mr. Christoffel in calling the strike, the report said that James Porrestal, Secretary of the Navy, made a statement in 1942 that the strike led by Christoffel had slowed down the cruiser and dKtroyer construction program. At Jir- time the took place, Allis had $45 million dollars in defense orders. The plant was singled out by the Comunist Party, said the re- iprt, as a "focal point" because of its Navy work. The charges then grew more serious, as the Committee endeavored to link the actions of Christoffel and his pals of the Pearl Harbor attack on Hawaii. They said that t was impossible to say in dollars ind cents and human lives what ,he extent, of the cost to this coun- ry had been when Christoffel "be- rayecl his country, his employer ind his fellow workers." Meanwhile, Mr. Christoffel's successor at Local 248, Mr. Buse, said that he wasn't worried at all by the report, and charged it was all engineered by the Company in its eifort to "smash our union." Both Buse and Christoffel were fired by the Company, along with about 100 others, when the union voted late in March to return to work without, a contract. The have filed an appeal before the National Labor Relations Board over the firing, but it hasn't come up for "action yet. Farmers will be more than usual- ily interested in the progress of these charges as they are handled by the Department of Justice for the Com- ,r|Vttcc, since Allis is one of ithe badly needed, was denied to the major builders of farm equipment, farmers of the country because of the more recent strike, and most farmers will bs. interested to see if there was a connection between the two strikes. $1,000 in Cash for Harvest Pictures Through the Perryton chamber of Comerce 81,000 in prize money will be offered for the best pictures of the 1P47 wheat harvest in Ochiltree County.

New Stale Award Schedule in 4-H Program Given Here's good news for 4-H Club members' in Texas. An all-expense trip to the National 4-K Club Congress in Chicago is now provided for the state winner in the 1947 4-H Farm Safety Program. Formerly only sectional winners received trip awards. There will be no sectional recognition this year. This change increases the possible number of Chicago trip winners in 4-H safety from 10 to 46. Last year's state winner in Texas was Billy Preston Hancock of Lakeview, who received a $25 U. S. Savings Bond, Medals of honor for a maximum of five members in each participating county, and a special plaque also provided by General Motors to the county reporting the most outstanding 4-H safety program in the state this year, will be awarded as in the past. In 1946, county winners were named in' Austin, Bowie, Brazos, Cass, Castro, Chambers, Clay.
