April 10 —(/P)— The atom bomb task force believes the cost of the Bikini experiments will be no greater than that for "one large new ship"—which could be about " $110,900,000, the current price of a -super-battleship. Vice Adm. W. H. P. Blandy, commander for the joint army- navy operation, said "the uninformed" had estimated the tests would cost $425,000,000 for target Ships and another $100,000,000 for other expenses. "Such figures are gross exaggerations," the admiral asserted in a statement. Blandy also made these other observations: 1—The tests are no threat to other nations and no "martial gesture." They are a defensive measure of "caution and economy, nol aggression." Information ob- ;ained "will help us to be what ;he world expects our great, non- aggressive and peace-loving country to be: the leader of those nations which seek nothing but a just and lasting peace." 2—The postwar armed forces "will be definitely and markedly affected by the implications of the atomic bomb. For the next several ust at the surface, "may readily .urn out to be more lethal in its combined effects upon ship iind crew—especially since this attack can be made either at sea or in jort, and the bomb can be quickly jrought to the desired exploding position, Hint is on the surface or slightly below it." 4—Prompt information is necessary. Scientists say any reasonably industrialized nation can produce the A-bomb in a few years, bu it is not expected positive guarantee againsl Die use of the weapon can be accomplished except through a step-by-stcp process over nn indefinite period. Pending such guarantee, it is essential that our designers, strategists and others learn as much as possible now about the use of the weapon. Otherwise, they will be "groping their wny along n dark road which may lend to another and worse "Pearl Harbor.' " In discussing expenditures for the test. Blandy said: "The total costs of the tests will be only a few percent of the annual naval approprialion, and will probably not exceed the lo.lal cosl of one large new ship, while the lessons learned may save many ships, many lives, and many mil- has opposition from Lt.

The Bikini test is "one step" in this program. 3—Although the projected third test, where the bomb is to be exploded several thousand feet down in the open sea, "is commonly believed to -be the most important, it is by no means certain that it will prove so." The second test, with the bomb exploded in the shallow waters of Bikini laboon or naval expenditures into the most productive and efficient channels." Blandy's statement did not specify the cost of any particular ship, but navv records show an Iowa- class battleship, the most expensive, costs about $110,900,000. In taking issue with the $425,000'.000 estimate for the target ships, Blandy said that was their approximate original total cost. Many are obsolete and the great majority were scheduled for disposal even before the test was planned. Only Third of Counties to Separate Vote By BOB BROWN tU R0<k Apri 16 — (UP) — He had heard from •!! counties today. Twenty-seven reported no provisions for Federal elections, and 14 had taken steps toward financing the elections.

Pasteurizing Plants Spring Up Over State Little Rock, April 15—(UP) — Several Arkansas cities are expected to be placed on the ' accredited milk list, of the U. S. Public health service Ihis year when 29 pasteurization plants just completed or now under construction are put inlo operation. H. L. Woodward, director of the State Health Department's division of milk control, said here today that no Arkansas city has the 90 per cent rating based on cleanliness of milk production and pre"The 29 plants built since the end of the war or now being built," Wodward said, "should place several Arkansas counties on the accredited list sometime this year."

Atty. ; War Control Continued irom Page One The program also includes price ceilings lor the first time on cream used in bakery product's and ice cream. Leonard E. Hurtz of Omaha, chairman of the 'Dairy industry committee, contended in a statement that the new program would lead to a decline in milk pro dnction "and continued shortages" of dairy products. Trie Senate Agriculture committee was plainly exercised about the meat situation which Packer James D. Cooney testified was "a national scandal which makes prohibition look like petty crime." \Vith the FBI ordered into action ly whether the reimposition of slaughtering controls would achieve its aim of improving the general meat silualion. Price Adminislralor Paul A. Porter said the effect of the controls would be to "provide for better distribution of meat supplies at ceiling prices to retail stores." Secretary of Agricullure said it meant "in reality a share-the-livestock program." The possibility of difficulties ahead for "the country's break supply "was first raised yesterday by bakery industry spokesmen in connection with an earlier announcement by Secretary Anderson that a 25 percent cut in their flour supplies will be ordered, if necessary to meet famine relief quotas. The State .Department meanwhile announced that three American Liberty snips are carrying grain from Russia to France and that 43 others will be available to transport the remainder of Ihe 300,000 bushels which Ihe Soviets have promised France. . Pasteurization plants cost from $4,500 to $50,000, Wodward said. And, he added, while improvements were being made for the processing and handling of milk, many dairymen are improving the standards of their herds and barns.

That winters aren't as severe as they used to be, or that red hair denotes auick temper. But there are other wrong ideas, which are definitely harmful to public confidence in and understanding of industry. One such idea is the current "guessing" about profits made by large business organizations. Many people are apt to grossly exaggerate the money made by business. So Opinion Research Corporation (an independent organization) made a survey to learn just what the public thinks about profits. Compare these guesses and yours with the International Harvester profit figures given below. rate of profit in normal times. Many largo husinesses, including ourselves, would consider it n banner year if we could reach this figure. Our average profit for the last ten years — four war and six peace — was 6'. 43% — more than a third less than what the public considers fair. All these figures show that our profits are not high. As a matter of fact, the entire farm machinery industry is a low profit industry. In 19-14, the Federal Trade Commission published a list of 70 industries ranked in order of their ratio of profits to snles. The farm machinery industry was 57th on the list What About Current I H Prices? Wages and material. 1 ? consume nearly all of every dollar Harvester takes in from sales. A Government board has recommended and the Company lias agreed to pay a general wage increase of 18 .cents per hour for Harvester factory employees. The Government lias also allowed price increases on raw materials which we purchase in large quantities. Steel lias had an average increase of . 8.2%. Public guess on war profits . . 30.0^ ® i H four war year average profit . . . 4.91 In this survey, the average of the guesses by the public of the wartime profits mado by industry was . . . thirty per cent (30 %). But in the four war years of 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945, the profits of International Harvester Company averaged only . . . 4.9% on sales. Less than one sixth of what the general public "guessed" for all industry. For this period, the year by year per cent of profits on sales was: 1942—7.34, 1943—5.09, 1944—3.95, 1945—3.93. Public guess on peace profits 18 .0$ I H four pre-war year average profit . . 7.17$ In the four peace years of 1938, 1939, 1940, and 1941, the profits of International Harvester Company averaged . . . 7.17%. This is well under half of what the public "guessed" for all industry. FAIR Majority think fair profit in normal times is IH ten-year average Is less than 7$ The survey indicates the public knows that in our economy profits are indispensable. And the majority regard 10% aa a fair ^ the War ended and we iplunncd our peace-time produc- Ition, we had hoped to bo able to serve our farmer customers at the same level which hus held since 1942, regardless of war-time increases in costs of wages and ma- TMES, nuns, re. terials up to that time. But recent developments have forced a change in our plans. . 'There'has been no general increase in our prices since they were frozen by the Government early in 29-12. So our situation today is that what we BUY costs us 1946 prices. We will bo paying average hourly wages 56% above 1941. For what we SELL we get only 1942 prices. This condition cannot long be met out of our present low rate of profit. Future Prices on I H Products It is plain that price relief will be needed to meet the increased wage and material costs which we must carry. Wo regret this necessity. We prefer to lower prices, when possible, rather than raise them and we know our customers prefer to have us do that. We had hoped to be able to "hold the line," at least. But we do not see how we can avoid operating at a loss if our prices continue to remain at their present frozen levels. We will NOT "cut corners" on any of our products, because QUALITY IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BUSINESS. Our customers can be certain that we will seek no more than a moderate profit, both because of our policies and because we have approximately 300 competitors fighting us vigorously for your business. Our request for price relief will be no more than is necessary to insure continued service lo our customers, continued work for our employees, and a reasonable return for our stockholders.
