March 7, 1946, Argentina May Request Plane Rights in U.S. By, CHARLES CORDDRY "\\a4lxlngtou; March 0 — (UP> — Argt*uU''-a may hand the United Statrt^a new problem by requesting eomj&Givial aviation rights in this country, informed sources said 10- tic quarters said Argon- Una te obtaining European landing itehts and fools entitled to similar '^tv ileges Here. It was iUsp noted that Albert ! Dodero, -\veahhy Argentine airline operatoiv recently arrived in this , country i and was quoted as saying ; plans for an air service were going ] forward. i ur'Sf officials agreed the re-| quest may be made and privately acknowledged it would present a tough problem in the light of present "O.. S.V Argentine relations. The'•; State 'Dep'aitment in a re- ccnt' r ,"'Bfu'e BOOK" charged Argentina, .'with"collusion with Nazi Germany. Some authorities said the (TnvnV.-rrgDt might therefore be expected .to- deny, rights for a strong instmrrreut of foreign policy like aviation. ntu .-\rgcntiila has a potent bar- "aim'ng point. Pan American and Pan American-Grace airways have operated for years to Buenos Aires. Arrangements for these operations were said to be tenuous, not covered by firm contract. Argentina could well insist on reciprocity as n condition for continued U. S. flag operations, diplomats said. The 'U. S. is committed to grant reciotroc-u \;;hts to countries which :;i'/o n'-Tr linos commercial privileges. .Vormally. if Argentina astted tor ;:i. agreement, the State 'Department s economic divisions •vricier 'Assistant Secretary Will Clayton would negotiate one. '<>it in view of current political difficulties, it was said Assistant Secretary SpruUle Braden, in chaige of Latin American affairs, probably would have the top voice. lication, Gasschutz und Luftschutz. Somebody must have been around. On deck of the Henderson was ione observer who wasn't making i any secret of it. He was the Hon. G. jKatsuda. member of the Tokyo : House of Peers. With him was one j Hone. G. Shibuta. who identified [himself as a representative of the iKobe Chamber of Commerce. i The Hon. Mr. Katsuda was so ; interested in the experiment that he kept a stopwatch on the Ost- ;friesland from the moment Mit! ehell's bombers hit until it sank in : tn echoppy seas. More Important! ly. the Hon. Messrs. Katsuda and i Shibuta were very enthusiastic i amateur photographers — so en- ithusiastic in fact that they kept I four high-powered cameras click- ing away during the entire test. Emile Gavreau and Lester Cohen, who wrote Mitchell's biography, report that the Hon. G. Katsuda gave a rather extensive I interview to Daniel D. Bidwell of j the Hartford (Conn.) Courant. j "Very great experiment." the i Hon Mr. Katsuda told Bidwell. j"Very exciting. Must put in cable | tor very great Japanese nowspa- I pers as eye-witness. Very lortu- nate to be here. Our people will cheer your great Mitchell and you | may be sure will study his experi- | ments. We respect American in- i volitions. There is much to learn I here." • Twenty years later what the Japs j "learned hero" was put into practice at Pearl Harbor. Luftwaffe. which, even before Mitchell died in 1930, was buildiitg !an air force that was to stagger ! the world and cause the United ;States to organize a civili":i air [raid defense, which Mitchell had ! urged two decades before. | When Mitchell and his little i squadron flew out of Langley Field (Fla.i to show what on air- i borne bomb would do to •••'uiscrs ;and battleships, there were key j military'cabinet members and top i generals and admirals who weren't | as interested us the Hon.

COX D1UJC5 STORK Mail Orders Filled Washington By JACK STINETT (First of Two Articles) Washington — In May. on the lonely Jittle atoll of Bikini, halfway between the Philippines and Hawaii, an atomic bomb will be exploded over 92 ships of war. Two'months later, according to present plan-- r.f "Operation Crossroads,' 1 as tao.joint chiefs of staff have dubbed this experiment, a barge will drift into the lagoon to explode -another atomic bomb among"- warships at surface level. Exactly 25 years before this latter test, in Julv. 1921. Brig. Gen. William Mitchell and a handfull of his flying Jennies proved to the world that a battleship could be sunk by bombs from the air. It will be well for the people of this country to evaluate the Bikini atomic bomb tests in the light of those conducted a quarter of a century ago. when a 42-year-old "flying fool" tried to make the world understand^ that the .warfare of to- Jtvoula be something else "Bijly" Mitchell is now vindicated b'y acts of .a Congress that once brushed him off: is now honored by military men who sit in the same chairs of those generals, admirals, and cabinet members who contri- buteQ^WHit-co-'n-r'martial 'and disgrace. Perhaps unfortunately for the nation, there is no one individual screaming "a.t ",th'e top "of leather- lined 5tings about the consequences of the Bikini atomic bomb tests as Mitchell yelled for a unified department of defense, with Army, Navy and air branches; for aircraft carriers: for airfields, in tr •!„,,.-..„,_ When Bill Mitchell -made his tests in 1921, he was operating Uuuer orders designed to make success of the experiment virtually, impossible. Those orders were that he was not to use anything heavier than a GOO-pound bomb and that the bombing planes' must fly at 10,000 feet or higher when they dropped their bombs. MitcHtelf**" Violated both orders when TO a..qfl his' infant airforces sank the,German battleship Ost: fricslat|fl 'olf ' the Virginia Capes. .His planes' carried one-ton bombs and although one of them got to the height of 11.000 feet on the previous test, most flew at height of a mile or slightly over. Considering the antiquated planes, the lack of adequate bombsights, the fact that they had to fly their ]r-ads 60 miles off shore and dump , them without the aid of modern i mechanisms, the miracle is that th™ hit anything at all. But the Ostfriesland went down in irorn tour to 20 minutes. (Of- •ficial reports vary that much). Air Commodore Francis Charlton of the British Navy, who was one of the observers, messaged Mitchell: "This shot will ring -around'the world.

Mathematical Limitations alone Prevent my saying the Red Cross services here have been more than 100 per cent" * -Gen. Douglas MacArthur C I i i S O speaks a distinguished eye-witness of your Red Cross in action. General MacArthur saw the Red Cross at your fighting man's side, all through the gruelling months of the Pacific campaign. He saw Red Cross huts in the sweltering jungle, bringing a touch of home to homesick, heartsick men. He knows that wherever your fighting man went, your Red Cross went, too—that wherever, whenever that man needed respite and recreation, help with a personal problem, or just someone to talk to, the Red Cross was there. He also knows, as you do, that your Red Cross cannot yet say, "Mission accomplished." It still has an enormous task to do. One War is over... but another War has begun Thousands of our men still in veterans' hospitals and in faraway lands overseas need comfort and cheer now, as they did when the bombs were bursting. And as our servicemen return to civilian life, your Red Cross must lend a helping hand. And when disaster strikes here at home—fire, flood, tornado —your Red Cross must be ready with aid for the victims. Its war against human misery is never wholly won. So remember—it is your Red Cross. It depends on you for its very existence. So give from your heart. Give generously. Give today!

Awhile back I was learning Sonny how to handle a shotgun so he could figure out where Br'er Rabbit natchelly was going to be on his next jump. Sonny- got the idea mighty quick for a boy his age. Maybe it's because he's noticed how us farmers always tries to do things the natchel way. For instance, it just comes natchel. to use Chilean soda to give our crops a quick start and keep 'em growing strong and healthy. j Us farmers has becri using natchel soda for more than a hundred years. Seems like just being natchel makes it different from any other kind. M.aybe folks won't be able to get all the soda they want this season, but if we're careful with wliat we get it may do. k.

ATTIC FA NOW IN STOCK Buffalo-Forge Certified Rateing Phone 259 HARRY W. SHIVER PLUMBING — HEATING HOPE Y OUR implement dealer had planned and expected to have his display floor filled with new implements and tractors weeks ago. And we had planned to make them—had told our dealers and our farmer customers they would have new equipment and plenty of service parts for the 1946 spring work. And we had hoped to sell these machines at no advance in price. Real Production Had Started When the war ended, our organization hcnt evary effort to increase production, with the result that in the last months of 1945 machinery was being built in very substantial quantities. Here are a few figures: PRODUCTION ITEM NOV. 1945 DEC. 1945 Tractors 7,271 7,432 Combines 2,345 2,526 Cultivators 3,482 3,308 Hay Loaders 209 982 *Plows 6,185* 6,702* *Plows are made in our Canton and Chattanooga Works, which are not on strike. January production was 7,747 plows. Bpth your dealer and we were encouraged by this production picture at the turn of the year. But the strike changed all that. As you know, the CIO United Farm Equipment & Metal Workers of America called a strike in ten of our plants, on January 21, 1946. What Is The Strike About? Wages are a basic issue. At the time of the strike. Harvester employes were among the highest paid workers in American industry. When the strike began, the average hourly earnings in the ten plants, not including overtime, were S1.15K'. If present wage proposals are adopted, this figure will become $1.33H per hour. When the strike began, negotiations were broken off by the Union on the issue of compulsory union membership. The Company has no desire to weaken the Union. It recognizes certain reasonable needs of the Union. But the Company does oppose compulsory unionism. It feels strongly that an em- ploye's membership should be a matter of his own choice. Material Costs and Price Relief Wages and materials are the great costs of operating our business—together they consume all but a few cents of every dollar the Company takes in. Wages are obviously going to be high—and nobody knows just how high material costs will go. In the face of rising costs of materials, the Company does not see how it can pay the wage increases recommended by a Government fact finding board until it has definite and satisfactory assurance from the Government that reasonable price relief will be granted to the Company within a reasonable period of time. This matter is of such importance that it will not be discussed here, but will be covered by future advertisements devoted to both prices and profits. Speaking for our dcaie:s and ourselves, we can assure you that no ^customer is more eager than we are to resume production. We are doing and shall continue to do everything in our power to bring about a fair settlement as soon as possible. INTER
