"I have had it throwed in my face several times for not buying defense bonds or stamps," wrote the man. "I have a wife and 6 children depending on me for suppart. I just work on the farm as a day laborer. I just got a job chopin cotton and pulling boles. I have 4 children in the school which I have not been able to senn to school because I am not able to buy shoes and school suplys for them.

"I do not have one drop of any blood in my veins only red Texas Demacrat blood and I want to do all I can to help in this cause so you write me at once and let me no if you will do this favor for me," he concluded.

"Now, as to your violin. "Please don't send it to me because I would only send it back to you. You are entitled to keep it and to use it. I note that the president is insisting on a continuation of baseball, football, and other forms of entertainment in order to keep up the morale of the civilian public of the country.

His group will have charge of all legislation relating to the general subjects of the National Guard and the organized reserves, ant) any recommendations of the subcommittee will almost always be accepted not only by the full committee but by the Congress as a whole. IN the House had under consideration the $26,000,000.000 war appropriation bill, Kilday arose on the floor to criticize special groups who exert pressure to get certain projects in their areas. "We have announced plans to turn 50 per cent of our national income in the next year into our war effort." he declared. "This transformation must be made within a period of^months and not years. "Such a transition means that every effort and every resource of this nation must be provided to the war effort. In the face of all this, organized minorities and pressure groups continue their demands ' that there be no interruption to their pet programs * and projects.

We are all at fault." * * * O'Daniel Feeds Venison The Texas congressional delegation recently enjoyed venison steaks at a luncheon in the capitol Source: the 35-point buck Senator O Daniel shot last fall down in South Texas.

STETSON AND KNOX SPRING HATS OTHERS TO SU.CO Economists See Higher Prices By FRED BAILEY United Pros Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Feb. 19.—Agricultural department economists predicted today that pressure of rising consumer income and shortages of some consumer goods would continue pushing farm commodity prices higher. Demand for .farm products in 1842 will be greater than in any ysar since 1919, they said. "The pressure of rising consumer income in relation to the volume of goods and services available for civilian use will be a factor in tending to raise the general level of prices this year," the Bureau of Agricultural Economics said. Food Coils Ris« The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that a 2.7 per cent rise in food costs in 51 large cities between Dec. 15 and Jan. 15 sent food prices 1S.8 per cent above figures for the corresponding period a year earlier. The general trend for this year in consumer demand for farm products will be upward the Agriculture department said. That conclusion, it said, was based on the rise in industrial employment and higher consumer income. Income Available Increased "Although increased taxes and defense bond sales may absorb much of the net gain in consumer income during the next few months, the income available for food, clothing, and other nondur- able goods will be increased by the elimination 'of automobile production and the curtailment in output of other consumer products," the Bureau of Agricultural Economics said. "Additional factors of strength in demand for agricultural products are the needs of our Allies as war operations increase, and a strong storage and. ff-toulative demand. The net result of all these conditions is expected to be a stronger demand for farm products in 1942 as a whole than in any year since 1919. Too Early For Conclusions "It is yet too early to form definite conclusions as to the probable effect on the general price level of the emergency price control act giving the government powers to check speculative and excessive price rises." The increase this year in farm income may not be as great as the $2,900,000,000 increase in 1941 over 1940, but total farm income is expected to be as large as in any year except 1919, the bureau said. Housewives Anxious To Feed Soldiers The idea of inviting a soldier into their homes for an occasional home-cocked meal apparently appeals to Lubbock's hospitable housewives, chamber of commerce officials said Thursday. The officials announced Wednesday that the chamber of commerce would arrange to provide the soldier if the housewives would provide the meal. Responses have been sufficient!} numerous that blank forms have been ordered mimeographed for the convenience of those who would like to extend such invitations. The chamber of commerce telephone number is 4666, with H B. Lewis in charge of this particular activity. First of the invitations to be received was irom Mrs. Dee T Worley, 2204 Twenty-ninth street She explained that she wanted to be first—and she was.
