Army when it put this new- anti-aircraft gun on display before the army ordnance association at Aberdeen, Md., prdving grounds.

It's designed to combat low-flying attack planes and can go into action almost immediately after being towed to a strategic spot by a truck at full speed.

I He urged Kiwanians to undertake the task of "re-selling America to Americans" and pointed to U. S. educational institutions as dominant factors in preparation of future citizens. At the same time he criticized schools who "dodge the controversial issues." "They stay at a safe distance, from the matters which perplex most people." he asserted, "and the result has been a certain cynicism about education. It seems unreal to practical people who are concerned with vital questions. "If we are going to achieve greater success in our education for democracy, we shall have to recognize what threatens it. There is a tendency to mistake the effect for the cause and to deal with the symptoms rather than the malady itself." .Citizens of totalitarian states lost their freedom "because they LOANS Rates and Methods Differ If you need money for a useful purpose come in and consult us.

American -education should be "more adequate to tne-et the problems' of preparing men for the economic phases of democratic citizenship." The problem uppermost in citizens' minds today, he continued. wa.s neutrality and the issue "is apparently misunderstood." "Patriotism is not the issue," Knudson asserted. "The course which our country pursues in the coming months will determine the kind of government and the kind of civilization which we shall hereafter enjoy and endure." Differences of opinion on the neutrality problem, as w^ll as the problem itself must be faced with "sanity, with reason, with impartiality, without passion, without emotion and without politics," he said, adding "there is no dispute between any nations . . . that could not be settled in a friendly way . . . provided, of course, you are not talking to a madman."

WOULD HASTEN ARMSEMBARGO REPEAL VOTE (Continued from-Page 1) support than a cover-all cash requirement, but saK it had drawn objections from colleagues on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Some of them contend, he reported, that if the arms embargo were eliminated there should be no distinction between sales of armaments and other goods. Senator La Folk:.j (Prog-Wis), an opponent of- the administration legislation, told reporters that "there will be a tremendous fight to require cash payments" for all goods. From Senator Adams (D-Colo) came the argument that the proposed 90-day credits would be the equivalent of cash. He said he had prepared an amendment to the controversial shipping provisions of the bill, which in their present form would prohibit American ships from vis- ting belligerent ports. Critics of the provisions have contended they would strike down any hope that American ships might obtain a predominant place in world trade. The Colorado senator said his proposal would "let any American ship go to any port, neutral or belligerent, except where they would be compelled to enter a combat area," Vice President Garner had taken a hand in maneuvers to hasten a final Senate vote on the neutrality egislation after administration eaders were rebuffed in efforts o obtain an agreement to limit debate. The Vice President was known o have counseled supporters of the arms embargo repeal bill to compromise the stringent provision which would prohibit American vessels from carrying any materials 0 belligerents anywhere in the world. He argued, some Senators said, that such a compromise would shorten debate which proceeded hrough its ninth day yesterday with Senator Nye (R-ND) vigorously at- acking the embargo repeal as a step toward war and Senator Taft R-Ohlo) defending It because, he said, an arms ban "really makes war more likely throughout the world." . Debate Limit Opposed Earlier, Democratic Leader Barkey of Kentucky had . sought an agreement from opposition, forces to 'limit debate, beginning next week, to an hour for each Senator on the bill and an additional hour on each amendment. Senator Clark (D-Mo) said this was not acceptable to the bill's opponents who expected at least another week's general debate on the Dill before consideration of amendments could begin. Shortly after the Vice President acted. Chairman Pittman (D-3S 7 ev) of the Senate Foreign Relations committee called on Senators to submit suggested amendments to the shipping provision and said he would lay them before the Democratic drafters of the bill early next week. Three amendments, which In general propose to permit American vessels to operate in a,ll areas where they would not be in danger of being sunk, already were in Pittman's hands. Conditions Made The Foreign Relations Chairman, however, laid down three condi- :ions which he said must be met by any amendment before It would be personally acceptable to him. These were: 1. That such an amendment involve a minimum of danger to American seamen. 2. That licenses for shipments made under the exemption clause must be obtained from the munitions control board and that no arms be carried in these shipments. 3. That the President" be given power to suspend such exemptions by designating danger zones whenever there was destruction of American vessels and loss of life. While these maneuvers were going on behind the scenes, Nye carried the fight against the .inns embargo bill to the administration with a challenge to leaders to call 50 leading industrialists and members of the President's cabinet to determine what they thought might be Ihe effect of a war boom. Contending that repeal of the embargo and institution of a "title and carry" system of sales to belligerents would produce an unlimited industrial boom with disastrous after-effects. Nye "dared" Senate leaders to ask the business men and government officials this question: "Is the unlimited war boom allowed in the present cash-and- carry bill a good thing for our national life?" "I do not believe you will accept this challenge." Nye shouted, "for you might find—you might possibly find, that there would not be one member of the President's cabinet who would say to you that such an .mlimited war boom would be a good thnig for our economy, for our nation's real good."

Those present Included committeemen, representing the county, Soil onservation Service officials and representatives of sportsmen's clubs. A petition asking for the district, signed by 250 farmers, was turned over to Dr. T. B. Symons. College Park, who is chairman of the State onservation • committee. This committee will -later act on the request. But before- the district can )e legally formed a referendum rote of farmers in the county will be taken. Dr. Symons, head of he extension, service of the University 'of Maryland, was the principal speaker. Boyd D. Gilbert. Baltimore, area conservationist, explained some of the legal phases of forming the district and the advantages. Under the district plan, farmers may ask assistance of State or Federal agencies in. their erosion control program. Supervisors will be appointed. The government will furnish technical assistance and su- ervision. Under the law the State can appropriate money for assistance of supervisors, including equipment a.nd hiring men. The dea is to make erosion control more general, Mr. Gilbert stated. Other soil conservation men present, included Edward M. Davis, ollege Park, state coordinator; John Cotton, College Park, extension conservationist, a/.d Jesse Tignor, acting project manager for Washington county. Mr. Gilbert explained there are GOO demonstra- .ion projects in Maryland. The one in Washington county is located along the Little Antietam and Israel Creek watersheds. A number of county representatives spoke including Charles Virts, Clarence Mason, Indian Springs; J. Kiefter Funk, secretary of county farm bureau; James Smith, Weverton, secretary soil rosion committee: Hugh Warrenfeltz, Fred Ernst, T. Keller Shank, eitersburg, representing the grange; G. William Garclenliour, well known Smithsburg orchard- st and president Maryland State Horticultural Society, Slate Senator Joseph D. Mish said: "I have a real interest in the program of the Soil Conservation Service. Farmers of this county welcome the soil conservation officials here. These projects will no doubt become more important and all farmers will benefit." John Ankeney spoke for the Washington County Commissioners. Commissioner W. J. Sullivan ;,is also presnt. Members of the House of Delegates present were Clarence Mason, Henry Holzapfel, ITT, Rinehart Cohill and Fred E. Beachley. J. M. Ankeney, of Clearspring, presided. Representatives of sportsr/.en's organizations were Henry Ayres. Conococheague Club; Raymond Snively, Jack Thomas and Charles Corbett. County Agent M. D. Moore ex- 1 nined the educational meetings which have been held. Dr. Symons called the soil the 'most fundamental resource in our state." He said that farmers have allowed their soil to b» robbed but that now they have begun to realize that methods to check erosion must be taken. He said that if farmers can conserve their soil, improve stock and increase fertility that they can regain ih? position in this county held year? ago.

IT MEANS Early in 1936 the Department of Agriculture decided that while soil conservation, demonstrations can; point the way, none can make suf-! flciently rapid headway toward an adequate protection of our agricultural surface unless some means, be found to treat whole bodies of land. To build terraces on the shoulders and leave the hilltops bare and unprotected does not accomplish lasting control of erosion. To contour list and lash down with grasses fields or farms here and there in a blow area may operate, in some part, to the advantage of the owners of the treated fields and farms; but it does not stop the blowing and the loss from neighboring unprotected fields. As things are, a few men in any area under treatment can impede stabilization of the soil simply by refusing to have anything to do with an entire area program of control. Sometimes it is an absentee owner, or speculator. Sometimes even in the worst of the drought and dust on the high plains for instance, a, few business plungers were buying up blown-out land for almost nothing, betting that some time H will rain again, planning then to go in and whip these tracts tor wheat. Also, untended farms that balk and mar control on the Plains and elsewhere are owned by farmers in residence there or nearby who do not want to be told to .farm differently by government men aud their neighbors, and who will not "stand for it.
