McCarran Succumbs to Heart Ailment Three Hard Years of Drouth Spur Irrigation But Many Obstacles Slow Development By the Associated PfftsS j purred by three hard years of drought, an irrigation boom is sweeping the Southeast but some tough problems may slow it Up Before it becomes solid development. Chief obstacle is that where it is needed most its essential ingredient is usually the scarcest. That ingredient, of course, is water. Still another handicap is that soil texture, fertility Or product' ivily does not always justify the relatively high cost of artificial rain. That defect can be remedied by standard soil improvement practices, principally abundant use crop values by thr> di ought years. Among the first f.uit of their activity was a successful effort in Congress to extend the Water Facilities Act, hithe-to applying cnly in the dry West, to the South and the rest of the nation. The main immediate benefit promised is long-term loans to individuals and water use associa* tions for developing irrigation projects. Available only where suitable credit cannot be obtained from banks or other private sour ccs, the loans arc administered of cover crops and heavy fertil ization, but the process is not a swift one. by the Farmers Home Administration.

Your editor was in the cowbarns at the Third District Livestock Show Wednesday shooting pictures of the beef cattle champs when all of a sudden they announced the next animal would be a Brahman. "There'is a curious legend about the Brahman," said my heckler. "When the flashbulb goes off he always charges the photographer." » And then they led out the Braii- 'man — a bull calf. I was relieved. "I could lick him myself," I told the cow expert. Just the same I kept an eye on the critter, and in due time tht flashbulb went off and nothing happened — except a picture. Photographing cattle is an in itself, because there is an incredibly wide range in their shades. The Hereford's white is ,Sjh ie whitest white in the world — and the Aberdeen Angus' black is the very blackest of blacks. Either one of them calls for some manip illation in the darkroom — and i you had both animals in the same negative you probably never woulc get a satisfactory print. .

The $15,000 General Says U.S. Losing Air Race By AL KAFF NAGOYA, Japan (UP) — United States is losing the power race with Soviet Russia, Lt Gen. Roger M. Ramey, command er of the Fifth Air Force, said to day. Right now, Ramey said in an e: elusive interview with the Unitei Press, the T. S. Air Force is to bmall to beat off an all-out Com munist attack. In addition. Ret warplanes were so close to Japai that vital American bases cotil be knocked out with little warning "The Russians have something like two and a'half' times the com bat aircraft the U. S. has," he said. "There are not enough airplanes in the United States to meet the world threat. And there not enough aircraft in the Far East to meet the threat here. "Something near 8,000 Communist airplanes are in reach of Japan and the majority of them are jets. They're awfully close to us." The Soviets have put combat aircraft on Sakhalin and the Kurile islands, which lie just off the coast of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost home island. Rame-y felt that the recent move of his headquarters from Seoul, Korea, to Nagoya on Sept. 1 was a wise step. Six tactiunl wings and two squadrons also are being shifted from Korea to Japan, Okinawa and the Philippines. Although the Reds nre building combat aircraft faster than the U. S., Ramey said he believed the •research and development of our Air Force is keeping up with the Russians." Ramey noted that the new MIG- 17 is faster and can fly higher than the MIG-15. which was defeated by American, Sabrejets in the Korean war.
