Russian Gobblede-moo, or How Now, Collectivized Cow? WASHINGTON - (NEA) - Relax milk drinkers, old Bessie can out-produce a Russian korova any day, even one on a state or collectivized farm. America's 21 million milk cows are well ahead of the Soviet Union's 29 million moo-moos when it comes to filling a milk bucket, according to experts here. That Is after you cut, through some Russian gobbiedegook. Recently the Soviets have been broadcasting bold claims about milk production. They boast that milk yield per cow last year was 1,597 kilograms o n collective farms and 2,177 kilograms on state farms. Need to Convert In the U. S. milk production is measured in pounds so you have The ONLY tuna packed by secret FLAVOR-LOK process 12 Time* Herald, Carroll, Iowa Thursday, July 18, 1957 to multiply the kilograms by 2.2 to get an accurate conversion. But the Reds don't think it's quite that simple. "The fact that in our country the average milk yield is calculated per head of all cattle, both dairy and meat, should be taken into consideration," explained a recent radio broadcast from Moscow. "If the milk yield were assessed only in relation to dairy cattle, as, for instance, in the United States, it would be considerably Higher." "Don't worry about that, it makes little difference," replies an authority at the Agriculture Department. "They milk every cow they've got in Russia. There's no distinction." 6,000 lbs. Per Cow The Agriculture Department reports that milk yield per cow here for 1956 was about 6,000 pounds. This is a preliminary estimate isince the figures .have not yet been completely totaled. The highest yield on Russia's state farms comes to approximately 4,790 pounds per cow during the last year. This is not at all representative, however. Only about six per cent of Russia's cows are on state farms. Another 40 per cent come from collective farms. And strangely enough more than half of the country's cows are owned by the peasants and workers. Giving the Russians the advantage, it's estimated that their cows yield between 3,000 and 3,500 pounds per year. (Advertisement) DESENSITIZE THAT ITCHI IN JUST 15 MINUTES.

The loan volume amounted to $777,736,000. The previous high was last Dec. 31, at $773,168,000. The capital structure totaled $176,894,000. The earlier peak was $172,581,000, as of last March 14.

Chandler, a banker at Dike before he took office as department superintendent July 1 on appointment from Gov. Herschel Loveless, made these other comments on the banking situation: "Loans have been gradually creeping up several years. There is' no special significance in the new record. We are not concerned by the fact that the total set a new record. "The loans, compared to the assets, are still only 38.79 per cent of the assets. Conservative Policy "As to the capita.1 structure, the banks are continuing their conservative policy of retaining profits and building up capital. "The decline in deposits is small. This is the time of year, especially in agriculture, when money is going out. The farmers have been using their funds to put in crops and for operating expenses. There has been no great amount of money coming in. "The record of last December reflects the end of the crop year and deposits which followed."

BURK NEA Special Correspondent MEMPHIS, Tenn. - (NEA) Speeding motorists in. a residential area in northeast Memphis were surprised recently when a group of 12 youngsters, ages 11 to 13, appeared' on the corners with home-made flags warning them to slow it down. Secretly forming their own safety club, the youngsters; many with younger sisters and brothers, went to work on the speedsters. Arming themselves with flags reading "Stop," "Slow," and "Children at Play," the words painted on : old bed sheets with mom's lipstick, the youths began riding herd on the careless motorists. 1 :,,/. They'stationed themselves at both ends of the street they patrolled and began warning the speedsters to "slow it down." Some now patrol the area with bicycles. Enlisting the aid of a neighborhood housewife, the youngsters began taking the license numbers of those who failed to heed their warnings. She called police, who in turn checked on the wrongdoers. Memphis police heard of the club through the calls they received from the housewife. They volunteered to send a traffic safety officer to her home to lecture the youths on how to • run their club properly. The results? Speeding has been cut to a minimum in the neighborhood and parents are now less anxious when their smaller children are playing outside. JUVENILE SLOWDOWN: On Piark St.. Memphis, Zetha Linda Dauge and Steve Bennett get ready fer safety patrol. Cereal With By BILL NEWKIRK TOLEDO, Ohio UB - "Waaaht: I want the cereal with the magic whatzls In the box!" , ? Ever hear a tot roar out that de^ mand In a supermarket? -; It may be murder for mother, but the younger generation's weakness for breakfast, food premiums is the lifeblood of two. scholarly brothers named ' Benjamin and Henry Hirsch. The Hirsches, who specialize la the manufacture of cereal toys, literally sit up nights dreaming up new ones to make junior hunger for scraunchie raunchies instead of pipple wippies. "We have to," said 52-year-old Ben, elder of the brothers by three years. "The novelty in novelty toys wears off lqyk ciun.fida elty toys wears off quickly, and if you're not ready with a new one, you're dead." No Shortage So far, the Hirsches show no signs of running out of ideas. Their inventions include a "Nautilus" submarine which dives and surfaces under the power of a mysterious "atomic fuel" (baking powder) and a sailboat which glides along in a windless bathtub after "nuclear propellant" (a camphor-like substance) is dabbed on its stern. Since all Hirsch toys currently go to a breakfast food manufacturer, buying cereal is the only way to get one. Even with orders for toys running into the 10 millions the three- story brick building housing Hirsch Laboratories. Inc., operates as a factory for only about five months out of a year. Then the 150 production, workers go home and the Hirsches settle down with a skeleton staff to plan next season's toys. "That," said Ben, "is when our work really gets tough. We start from scratch again and hope we can come up with something in time." Ideal Combination By nature, the Hirsches are ideally fitted for a team job. Ben, a chemist, can produce aa "idea a minute" and enthusiastically defends every one to the last ditch. Henry, who as an engineer must apply the ideas to a production line, has developed a defense mechanism that prompt him to mutter "I doubt it" whenever Ben has a fresh brainstorm. The brothers have worked together since their high school days when Ben invented a cream to slick down stubborn hair. That enterprise started in their mother's kitchen, graduated to the garage, and eventually took there into a profitable cosmetics business. A fire in 1944 ruined their business. The plant rebuilt, the Hirsch es spent two years in a vain el- fort to get back into cosmetics. Finally acknowledging failure and almost broke, they decided to take a chance on 'toys. "We didn't know much about toys, but we thought they held some possibilities for a chemist and an engineer," Ben explained. The brothers devised tiny plastic skaters which scooted around on water on camphor tablets and found willing customers in the five-and-dime stores. Within two months after the skaters went on sale the" brothers had sold more than a million and paid off all their debts. In 1955, several toys later, the Hirsches approached a breakfast food company with a crude model of a toy submarine and made a bid for the cereal box business. At first, the breakfast food people were dubious. But the Hirs ches managed to come away with an initial order for 250,000 units of the toy, later patterned and named after the real atomic submarine, "Nautilus." They delivered the order, and in a couple of weeks the breakfast food company was screaming for more. New Gimmick The exact figures on sales of the sub and similar toys are a secret of the cereal firms. Breakfast food moguls also display all the caution of automobile tycoons in guarding the designs of new premiums and model changes. Right now, the Hirsches are trying to develop a cheap battery whose components can be run off on a printing press. If they succeed, the battery will be used to run their next,toy, which . . , Oops, Uh-uh. That'll cost you a boxtop, and your kids will be sure to tell you when it's available.
