FIGHTtNStHS The present administration attack on the farm Support program is difficult to ^"^"^-^ Vice President Nixon and Agriculture Secretary Benson have both gone on the radio »n an effort to bring pressure to bear on Congre« to tower the parity support-figure* and otherwise Sabotage the entire farm program. They now declare that the present price support program is an "economic fallacy." This is not at all what was said in the last presidential election — quite the opposite in fact. If that fa the way the administration felt, why wasn't that statement made to the middle west during the campaign? There are a great many "economic fallacies" connected with government- tfhere are many, typte" oi Ict&ity* which receive direct government subsidies, such as ship bunding and airlines, and many oiheis who receive aid in one form or another. Perhaps all of them should be eliminated. ; In the case of agricUtturej, the general idea has not been to subsidize th^faitttfcr,, but to |n- t sure him a fair income in Jean years as wefl as good ones. By so doing, the general purchasing power of the fanner is maintained consistently,, to the benefit of,the great industrial centos whose products must find a market The farm program should eertainlr be subject to adjustment and to Changing conditions as they take place. 1&& the present Ife&t'that {ft 'shaping ttp > Congress ever the farm bill isjiot just a proposed readjustment; fc ? fook/mare3te*an efcort to wipe 1 out all of the benefits for agriculture that have been evolved! over, the past 20 years — to turn, back the wheels of progress. Th* agricultural areas of the, nation rfiii have some Mends in Washington, but they are not .found among the inner circle of the present ad-, ministration. . * * * f • GUATEMALA HAD A REASON Norihwood Anchor — For the. last ^-eeks tbfe government of GuatemfM critized by United States officials and buying (or accepting shipment oO arms! iet Russia. ^Phy'on earth,does Guat" arms?" his been asked, over and over unless Guatemafc* {ntea^s to attack some neighbors and snreatt Communist rule in America;?"-, .

R. B. WALLER, Maaagiag Editor C S. ERLAXDEK. Advertising Manager A "GIANT RADICAL'' Robert R. Young, whose complex fight fof control of the New York Central railroad ended in success for him, has been termed a "giant radical." ; The word 1= radical" has been Interpreted So mean long-haired, bomb-throwing individuals who breathe anarchy. Technically, however, a radical may also be just about anyone who has a different idea on most any subject than do the majority of folks, or anyone who presents a new idea* Mr Young seems to fit in this latter category. He has long advocated elimination of some of the ponderous methods of railroad operating which were all right in earlier days but have become extremely cumbersome in the days of modern competition from automobiles, buses and airlines. When the new chairman of the New York Central talks, he sounds like some of the orators of old who attacked all that they thought was wrong or detrimental to the masses of the people. He spe-aks frankly of Wall Street and banking control of the railroads, criticizes operating methods 'tbit 'are obsolete, the time required to buy Uckets, the red tape in making a coast-to-coast journey by rail, failure to modernize equipment and speed up freight deliveries, and a few things of a similar nature. It has been noted for some ysars that the quickest way to change a radical to a conservative is .to-put him in charge, and we shall watch | with inferest the progress of Mr Young i-\ his new role as head of one of the nation's largest railroads. •'•'•>' ' • SMOKE 1M OUT During the past week or so, some of the most interesting news stories to come from ,Wash* ington have centered on disclosures of improprieties and downright crookedness or stupidity, or both, in connection with the handling of government contracts. * i : ID some instances be reoderrag a sttvice to the f ip- le* cartoons, to say nfthtng of tie fusing tftat^ild Bave to be given the trifcestntn tfti^t out of ffiem whatJwFlt was you wanted in the first place! « « * .
