"f','.>-! .* 4. DIDACTICS —By Deskinv Weds Trouble of the worst kind is brewing: in New; York's Harlem where a racial outbreak could erupt at any time. Northern newspapers indicate that such <an eruption "with its accompanying violence and bloodshed would dwarf anything itflvat ever hapflpened in the South or anywhere else in this country •for. thfe!t?'»atter. • •• ':". ! ' ' ; -' ; ; ^he; sedate New York Times reports the existence of gangs of young Negroes who have been organized to prey on the whites and trained to maim and kill. In'spite of these obvious facts there are those who continue to think of the Negro problem ; as belonging mainly to the South. They need 1 ttp get their own house in order before trying to tell the South how to run its affairs. As a matter of fact many Southern communities are doing a; much better jab of improving the lot of the Negro than has ever •been done in New York, Chicago, Detroit, etc. It is only natural for a wheat grower to want to harvest his grain at the earliest feasible time; but it. may pay them to wait a few days this year. Effective June 1, the Government has lowered the moisture content to 13W% for the wheat to be eligible for the loan without dock. The dockage is more severe than ever being tt< for each */ 4 % of moisture above the allowable. Thus a grower who brings in wheat testing 15% moisture would be docked 3<* a bushel. There are also docks for trash, weed seeds and other things, but it is the moisture content that is causing the main trouble at the present time. The weather map indicates that this entire region will have more moisture than usual June and that tjhe temperatur •will be below average. As j matter of fact that is the kinc •weather we have ibeen having for the past week. You will find the day and night temjper atures for the past week listed on the front page.
