By so doing they gave nn effectual impetus to the «ci- entific and technical development of Industry as well ns agriculture. But their greatest contribution to the mdu'itrial system is the foundation of an ample food supply they have helped to put under it. Our whole ecnnomicjlrucUire ii bolted to that'fotindation. "In aiim total the public it probably the biggest beneficiary of all. When the land-grant colleges were established one half nf the nation's working force was oc- cupied'in farming.

"Services of the land-grant college kfnd are likely to be even more important in the period ahead. The country's population is expanding rapidlv in ratio to our , land resources. This will require a comparable Increase in farm production, per :. man, acre and farm animal. It nuts a heavier load on the experiment statfons, aptly described as 'the powerhouse of the Innri-jirant college system.'" Truly, land grant colleges, on the 90th anniversary of their formation, have much to their credit. And their field, as the mag- ' izine points out, is widening annually .-The service they may yet render is unlhnited.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round If DHZW PEARSON Washington--Ike notes--There's be-n less gloom around Eisenhower headquarter!. His manager!;, once in the doldrums, now look happier. They think Ike has m«de inroads on Taft delegatei. A total of 75 is the number hey think he has wooed and won during charm-exuding talks. The general himself Is still suffering from a uplit ptnonallty. Sometimes he veers to one policy, lomftirnes to another. Perhaps this is be- cauie he know« that to win the nomination he has to be conservative enough to please the He- publicini; y«t to net elected he has to be liberal enough to please Democrats . . . Ike cliirns he doesn't want to know what his staff if doing. (SomatimM thingi would be a lot better off if he did know.) He even paid he didn't know what the good-nlws w«» »h»t Senator IvOdfe brought him the other day, though » lot of other people knew It was the support of Michigan's potent Arthur Summerfield, which may swing Ihe large Michigan delegation.

This w a j the private Ike luncheon held by Washington trainer! peals-Charlei Lucey of Scripps-Howarri-, Bert Andrews of the New York Herald Tribune. Seotty Rcston of'New York Times, Fred Collins of Providence Journal, et al. No wire services, no networks, no news magazines were invited. Naturally they hit the ceiling . . . Harry Luce, Time-Life publisher, hearing about the off-thc- record lunch, remarked to Palmer Hoyt of the Dtnver Post: "I'll call up my man. Ed Darby, and find out what happened." But his man. Darby, had been barred. Naturally. Luce, a strong Ike-man, wasn't happy. The ensuing storm from those who were snubbed gave the luncheon more headline* than if Ike had made a speech. His Bpcfch would have cost money for radio and TV timt. Jealousy between newsmen cost nothing. » * * Frantic Congress--During the hot-wcathrr- hot temper wind-up of Congress.

Most lobbyists took a licking when the Senate and House conferees locked themselves up to iron out the controls bill. Senator Maybank of South Carolina took the lead in plugging loopholes the lobbyists hari driven in the House bill. One iobbyirt, Al Payne of the renl estate crowd, kept constant vigil outside the conference door buttonholing legislators as they came out. In the end, several rent control loopholes remained in the bill.

The senate appropriations committee sent him a list of questions to find out how serious the cuts would be. McNeil got the answers from the Air Force, which warned that the cuts would be a dangerous security gamble. But, instead of sending the Air Force answer back to the Senate, McNeil sent his own answers in order to appease the economy bloc. The Air Force has warned that, if the steel strike continues, jet- engine production will come to a standstill in 30 days and the last jet engine then in production will be delivered to the Air- Force in 60 clays. The House has cut civil-defense funds from $600,000,000 down to a measly $37,0000,000 a reduction of over 90 per cent. This means that our civilian security program against atom warfare, including the training of 3,000,000 civil-defense volunteers, will b* virtually put out of business. * * * Steel strike--Smart John L. Lewis garnered big headlines by offering $10.000,000 to the steelworkers from th* United Mine Workers' kitty, but then never came across. He merely notified his bank that he would loan the money. Quipped a steelworker official: "Our credit is plenty good at our own banks." John L. has disliked CIO boss Phil Murray ever since they split over CIO policies, likes to appear patronizing. Presidential Assistant John Steelman says privately he'll sit out the steel strike until both management and labor start hurting and are forced to talk compromise. Bennett Sam Goldwyn, most prodigal and finicky of Hollywood producers, learned a new lesson in economy when Director Mark Robson brought in his new picture, I Want You, three days ahead of schedule, and twenty-five per cent under the estimated budget of a million and · half dollars. Mr. Goldwyn was not only impressed, but overjoyed, and indicated there would be more of the same in all his future operations. As he characteristically expressed it, "Who can afford not to save money when it doesn't cost anything?" if it it John Crosby warns radio artists and spielers of commercials that no matter how exaggerated and absurd their claims or advice may be, some segment of Ihe great American audience will most certainly take them seriously. When a bleak ditty named "Gloomy Sunday" {popularly known as tht* Suicide Song) wa on the Hit Parade, for instance, people would phone in requests to have it played and bump themselves off while it was on the air. Arthur Godfrey once kiddingly remarked that the cellophane wrapper on a pack of popular brand cigarettes could be used as fish bait. Not only did thousands take him at his word, but a girl friend of Crosby's caught a two-pound bass as a result. ·k if if A Russian delegate to the UN was boasting to Israel's Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, of the fact that some copper wire was discovered in a cave that had not been entered for over a hundred years, "Conclusive proof," declared the Stalinite, "that we had telephones in Russia long before that upstart Alexander Graham Bell came along." "PouT," scoffed Bon-Gurion. "In an excavation below Tiberius recently one of our scientists found absolutely nothing. This means that the ancient Hebrews perfected wireless 5,000 years before you rigged up the telephone!" it it * In France, where they always seem to be having an "important" election, a follower of De Gaulle declared, "I never fail to give my taxi drivers n tip of 100 francs, telling them 'Be sure to vote for De Gaulle.'" A friend answered. "My way is not only cheaper but much more effective. I give no tip at all and tell them to vote for the Communists."

It was not quite noon, but the musical jangle of tVie dinner bell vame pleasantly froiv the kitchen, nhumh.i came waddling toward the lodge, striking an iron rod on .the triangle as she walked.

Duncan uked JefT, Ordell, Miss Hansrn, David Roberts and me to mount. I heard him give orders to Marguard to find J a m e s and to hold him. Dr. Roberts rode beside me. He smiled At me reassuringly and, leaning from his saiHIc, he said In a low voice, "See If you can And the three trees. 1 believe 1 know where ihey arc."

I noticed that the professor be gan to talk a bit, too. The excite mcnt of treasure hunting and thi healing pine-s c e n t c d air were helping to take hit mind from his sorrow. Finally we reached the almost level top of the high difficult ridge' and stopped to rest our horses. Not far from the edge of a cliff stood the burned trunk of an old pine. Sergeant D u n c a n dismounted and unbuckled a short-handled spade (rom his saddle. "Well, folks, here we are. You see, the timber noted on the map was old when that map wu made, so it seems reasonable to believe that in the years that have passed the trees may have fallen." Sergeant Duncan stepped off the distauct between the spring and the base of the burned pine. David brought a graph-map from his pocket.

My husband's job was quite a distance from home ajid he put in ong hours, so we had little time together.
