Journal When Fields Are Green Many years ago, when the winter landscape in the South was marred almost everywhere by bleak old 'fallow broomsedge fields and eroded, red gullied land, the late Hugh MacRae, a farseeing farmer and industrialist from Wilmington, said: "The South will come into its own when its fields are green In winter.",.. Thanks to Mr. MacRae and other progressive farm leaders and agencies, the fields of the South are becoming greener and greener nowadays, not only with hay and pasture grasses for increasing dairy and beef cattle herds, but also with the green of flourishing winter vegetable and grain crops.

Not only are military targets being hit but Red bestiality is taking a civilian toll.

They do not fear attack upon still unhlt Red jet fighter bases. They do not wonder for a moment whether we seek victory and their defeat.

In 1966 and 1967 the department^ offered payments to cotton farms which underplant- ' ed ^ their- -cotton; acreage allotments by specified amounts. ; The objective of the payment program was to curtail production until a cotton.surplus was disposed of, which has happened. Officials provided this information in confirming that a state prison farm in Lincoln County, Ark., has received payments under the cotton program. Officials said this farm has had a long history as. a cotton producer and chose to go along -with the department's program of reducing production. Officials said they did not have records here of the amount of payments to this or any other farm. They said such records are kept in the counties where the farms are located. The payment'program calling for underplanting of cotton allotments is a voluntary one. But benefits of the curtailment program, — which includes eligibility tor price support on a farm's cotton — are available to all farms choosing to go along with the program. — Hope Star photo Jennie Aslin, treasurer of the Republican Women's Federation of Hempstead County, presents a check for $25 to be used for the new Youth Center project.

Planes Don't Bother Church for Deaf By FRANK MURRAY Associated Press Writer MIAMI, Fla, (AP) church 1 \ abandoned .'. buzzing" 'pfahes at the nation's* busiest airport drowned out the prayers and sermons has become home base for a Jet age circuit preacher's silent ministry. Only the deaf worship now in the Rev. Walter Busby's 40- member parish, unique In Florida. They aren't disturbed by noise from landings and takeoffs at suburban Opa-Locka Airport, busiest in the nation with 596,949 landings or takeoffs last year. The planes' approach takes them directly over the weathered white cross on the Spanish tile roof of the church. The Lutheran pastor has all five senses but gives his sermons, the liturgy of the service and leads prayer and hymns with the hand language of the deaf. Behind the free-standing altar — turned so he can face his parishioners as they read his fingers — Pastor Busby folds his hands to say, "Let us pray," Another Lutheran congregation built and used the adobe- colored building in which Trinity Deaf Zioa now worships. But Harry F. Laduke, president of the earlier congregation, said "Our church body decided in I960 that, with the airfield flight pattern being right over the roof, and our fronting on busy Northwest 21th Avenue, the noise Sunday after Sunday was affecting our attendance," Laduke advertised in local newspapers and the first inquiry was from a representative of the Chur-'h of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Salate (Mormon), "I explained to him the noise and confusion that caused us to want to sell," Laduke said, "He went away and never came back," Eventually, a« ad led to pyr« chase of the building for more thaq $40,000 by the National Deaf Zion of the Lutheran Caurcb»M{ssouri Synod, Services sit Triftity Deaf Ziou are in the evenings, Sunday and Weojiesday 4 because Pastor Busby ministers each Sunday morning to other deaf congregations- in Tampa, 200 flying milts away, and Pensacoja, about 500 miles away.

Officials for Carglll, Inc., which owns the mine did not disclose the exact spot. The tragedy struck eight months after the Federal Bureau of Mines recommended a sister shaft be sunk to provide better ventilation, an escape route and various fire controls, H. A. Schre engost, a bureau, official in Indianapolis, Ind^ said th« recommendations were made by A. M. Evans, a mining engineer from the Dallas sub- district, after an "observation walk-through" last August. In Minneapolis, W. R. Pearch, a Cargill vice president, said the company requested the inspection and that some recommendations were followed, with others "in the process of approval and implementation." Jim Bowe, a public relations man for the mining company, added Friday night, "there was no specific suggestion in the entire observation which could have prevented the fire..." Raymond R. Ashby, a coal mine safety expert from Kentucky who was on the mine floor .when the first i& bodies were found, said the men apparently ' of ?,&rt»1f' iWtaoflai'TJn* soning.'

U.S. Sells Gold to Britain WASHINGTON (AP) - The Treasury Department reported today sales of $771,2 million In U.S, gold to the United Kingdom during the fourth quarter of last year. The sales Indicate the magnitude of speculative gold buying following devaluation of the British pound. The department also said Algeria purchased $149,6 million in U.S. gold during the period, the second largest purchase during the quarter, The report was the first official indication that speculative gold buying on the London market following a devaluation exceeded $ I billion. The United States makes up 59 per cent of all the gold sold on the London market and this shows up In Treasury figures as sales to the United Kingdom, Net sales to Britain during 1967 totaled $878.5 million, the highest amount since * 958 * The totil U,S, gold loss for the fourth quarter exceeded $1 bit* lion, including ? 953 * 3 million in sales to foreign governments an4 $58,9 million in domestic sales for industrial and artistic use, Th* total 1967 gold drain was $147 bttllon, incJtKilnf II billion |n sales to foreign governments, Other major transactions in the fourth quarter Included a $100 million gold purchase from Canada ana y.id sales of $85 If that's your situation we are describing, then you must be a member of that minority groupof Americans known ns Adults* As an adult, you may wonder or even worry about the situation, but do you sincerely try to do your part to correct It? Youth Is looking for now and creative ways of living, There is more free time than ever bo- fore, as the result of labor saving devices which virtually eliminate chores and household tasks. "I don't have anything to dol" Is the cry heard too often from youth. Strange as It may seem, adults with the same advantages of mechanical marvels to assist In work usually moan, "I don't have enough time." Can tho two groups, youth and adult, come together harmoniously in any activity today? Is there any hope of a blending of two worlds that seem miles apart but, In truth, had so much of tho same basis? The Girl Scout program Is designed for broad application to fit the needs of girls in the many situations and conditions existing hi our country. It recognizes that an important set of values Is of Inestimable worth—Just as a sot of false values dan be a stumbling block tor life. § A young person Is confronted with ^battery orpatterijiNji/ values from a variety of iOUrces-r family, church, school, and the organizations to which that person belongs. Notice the first source in the abovelisl was Family. We could just as easily have said Home, for directly or indirectly, that is the greatest source of Influence. Patterns of behavior set by adults at homo play the greatest role in behavior patterns developed by youth. Tomorrow, March 10, begins Girl Scout Week. We salute those In scouting who train girls In the constructive use of leisure, the establishment of living standards to be used in and out of future homes, and the awareness of which responsibilities or actlvi- ties to declinn or accept. Elizabeth Sheehy, Assistant Director of tho Girl Scout Program Development Division, explained that Girl Scouting can help young people "learn how to work with others, give them opportunities to express and initiate ideas, open up new and adventurous opportunities for them and instill In them the values of Commended for Paddling* CORRY, Pa, (AP) - The superintendent of Corry High School, where 70 students were paddled tor playing hooky, says he has been besieged with commendations.

MOBLEY Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Politicians guessing about whit would happen If no presidential candidate won a majority of the electoral votes next November aren't having just one nightmare--there arc two. The first Is over how to win the presidency by m*?ans of an election In the House which would be required If no candidate had enough Electoral College ballots. The second one Involves the vice presidency and succession to the White House. Political analysts are treating as a real possibility the chance that former Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace's third party might siphon off enough electoral votes to leave neither a Republican nor a Democrat with the required 270 Electoral College votes. To set up such a hypothetical problem they credit Wallace with the 35 votes from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and South Carolina ' and assurm- enough drainage of ballots from regular parlips olsa»sherfl-r^' create upsets' and leave the major candidates in virtual deadlock. ' ' That would throw the presidential contest into the House of Representatives with each state having just one vote. Presumably Uie Intradeloga- (Ion vote would follow straight party lines and the pnrty in control of a majority of state delegations would win. But suppose the third-party states remained behind their man and neither a Democrat nor a Republican could muster the required 26 of the 50 delegations for a winning majority. If the third-party supporters made no deal with one or the other major party, a deadlock could last until the next election, without a real president. The off-year election might change House makeup enough for a decision In two years Instead of four. That Is where the vice presidency comes in. Under the Constitution, in case of House election for a president, the task of naming a vice president falls to the Senate. The Senate's selection for vice president becomes acting president if tho House cannot settle on a chief executive. The senators have one vote each in the election of such a man, so party control In the chamber would be a big ele- rnunt. Presum?bly the Democrats would win as things stand now. They have a heavy nnjorlty and even the staunches! Republicans sound wistful when they talk about taking command in the Senate this year. But If a Republican presidential candidate squeezed through in a House election and the Sen- alt remained under Democratic control there might be a party split between the two offices. A current book by Russell Baker of the New York Times staff, "Our Next President: The Incredible Story of What Happened in the 1988 Elections," traces a long series of intricate and wholly fictional developments through that maze to the election of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, p-N.Y., as acting president until 1972. Baker lets his fictional Kennedy get president Johnson's pre- election nod for th* vice presidency to strengthen Johnson's position at the polls, with Hubert H. Hwni*rey shifted to secretary of state. In the Baker version JofaasOiOt stays in House deadlocked with tbt cop candidate, Mgyor John V. Lindsay of New York. U.S. Officer In Charge of Crtical Area Aswiflted "Press Writer , SAIGON (Ap) - Appointment of Uy Can. William 8. Rosson as commanrter of $ new north* «rn headquarters In South Vietnam puts an Army general tn charge of a critical area which until now was considered almost exclusively a Mnrlne Corps do>- nuln. As cammitwler of" Provision* al Corps, Vietnam," RossonwllI run the looming battle for Khe Safin— defended entirely by U.S. Marines and sonv South Vietnamese rangers—and any new fighting for llua or north of U In Quang TrS Province and just below the demilitarized zone. Rosson's appointment was seen by som? observers as an effort to bring the threatened sector under closer control of Gen, William C, Westmoreland, chief of all U.S. forces In Vietnam, and his command In Saigon. Som« newspaper accounts Im* piled tn.it the move reflected Army dlsatlsfadton with the way the Marines were operating In South Vietnam's northern provinces, known as the 1st Corps area. The reports prompted Westmoreland last Wednesday to take the unusual step of Issuing a public statement In defense of the Marines, Ho expressed "great admiration^ for the Marines, from their commander, Lt. Con. Robert E. Cushm.™, "down to tho lowest private," and said ho was greatly distressed by reports that he feltotherwise. Nevertheless, U has bean an open secret in Saigon that the A?^iy ,yai\twi A bigger hand $ running events In the north, where until the latter part of last year the only American troops were Marines. In early February, Westmoreland sent his deputy, Gen. Crelghton W, Abrams to Phu Bat, near Hue, to set up a new northern command to be known as "MACV Forward"~a forward extension of the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam In Saigon. Under the new set-up, Abrams returns to Saigon after less than a month In the north, his command replaced by Rosson's new "Provisional Corps." The official reason given for Abrams' return was that his Job in the north was virtually com' pie ted. That Job, the announcement said, was to effect coordination among Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force units In the area. Some newsmen, however, reported the Marines wore unhappy at the imposing of Abrams, a four-star Army commander, over the three-star Marine command of Cushman. Cusnman now remains technically and administratively in Over-all command of the 1st Corps area—the five northern provinces. In practice, Rosson wit] be in direct tactical charge of the two northernmost provinces and Cushmin in the three others. One effect of Hosson's appointment will be to Inject considerably more Army officers into top staff echelons involved with the north.
