But before we accept the fact that it becomes necessary for their replacement, we would ; like to feel that every possible means for their removal has been exhausted.

We urge the city to take advantage of the existing opportunity to remove at least one of these factors. If f ~ necessary we think the city would be justified in postponing the completion of reconditioning of the street in order to accomplish this. 'The T. B. Gatdi Company. Baltimore, holds a State Roads Commission contract to resurface the street and is expected to start within the next few weeks^. "Knowing what efforts have been made toxvard the removal of these tracks, we suggest that it may be wise to employ some qualified per- Lson or persons to promptly make 9:he explorations, contacts, etc, to I Ibe end that this very desirable municipal improvement can be realired."' Former Chamber of Commerce President R.

To Spray Cornfields If weather conditions are considered right, considerable spraying of corn fields may get under way the latter part of this week ' or the first of next v.-eek. There . has been no spraying as yet. even '-, of field corn, it was said. Sugar ' corn is just coming into silk in many fields. A spraying at this time, it was · said, may serve a double purpose --whacking both the Japanese beetle and " the corn borer. The beetle is jest about ai its worst and the second corn borer brood is due. The spraying rigs of the Freder- , , ick county group which ;s battling the beetle have covered roadsides of county pikes, in two election districts thus far. it was reported today. Their work continues daily and has already accounted for thousands of beetles.

Scheduled to reach Washington within the next 2-t hours are Gen. Lucius D. Clay, the American occupation commander: Ambassador Robert Murphy. Clay's top-rankinc ooliticn! adviser: and a representative of Lt. Gen. Curtis E. LeMpy. chief of the U. S. Air Force in Europe. Their talks appear likely to be a full review not only of the problem of supplying Berlin by air from the western zones of Germspy but of the exact military situation in Europe as welL Remains Hopeful « At the moment, ranking officials here are still hopeful that ihe Ber, lin crisis can be settled before it ' reaches the point, of open fightin.z. They do not. however, disguise their concern that it might lead to war. Their determination is that if there is to be shooting the blame must rest upon Russia and not upon the western powers. As one informant-put it: *'if the Russians want a war at this time I they can get it. but they will have i to bring it about themselves." ! Thc only major weakness which authorities here sec in the current position of the western powers results from the collapse of the Schuman government in France. Hov.-ever. there is strong hope that when a new French government is organized^ it will pursue the same foreign policy which the Schuman administration had followed--a policy of full cooperation with the United. States and" Britain. But while first emphasis -will be upon diplomacy, there appears lo be no disposition to relax the military alert. Officials insist that if Russia tries to use force to gain its ends, this country and the other v.-estern powers will be ready to resist with force. ·The military information Clay presumably is bringing back for policy-making officials probably dcals with thc deployment of American forces antl a last-minute assessment of intelligence reports on Russian troop dispositions in Germany. United States ground forces there consist only of about 96.000 troops. Of these, something less than 24.000 are combat troops, although She light!y larger constabulary force also is thoroughly trained in field combat. The balance of the occupation force consists of service ?nd technical personnel to handle supplies and keep equipment operating. Down in thc Trieste area. 5.000 American pround forces men are on watch, about 3.109 of them cora- bat troop?. Air Force Situation The picture !hc Air Force rcpre- ·=cntativc can present is something iike this On the scene i'. . Europe, mears- :n^ at bases in Western Germany or visitinc in England -- three crr.uos of B-29 bombers, s tot?.i of 30 aircraft- One group of World "»Var II F-47 fighters, a total o£ 75 planes: tv.-o troop carrier groucs. totaiiinc P5 airplanes of the tv.-ir.- en^irie C--7 type: fifty-four bi£ i'our-cncined transports sent to Germany temporarily to aid the C-47s ;n fivins supplies into beleaguered Berlin. " Due in Europe--16 F-SO jet nght- crs. no'.v on an exoerimental trans- Atlantic flight to Germany by v-sy of Greenland. Iceland and England: Also the 36th Flight Wing, equioped with F-SO jets. Tne A5r Force announced about three weeks aso that t h i « 75-planc £ro'jn. now stationed in the Panama Canal Zonf. would be transferred to Gcrmany to reinforce the obsolete fighters now there. The mobile striking' force in this countrj unon which the Arm might call for help in an emergency is .small--only 54.000 men. of whom 10.000 are service troops. And even these comparatively few men are needed critically at home to help t r a i n draftep* and recruits in the 1 Army expansion program. I lEWSPAPERr SlEWSFAPERl
