Washburn War Scandal Men Must Be Paid SPG on the Move Shocking as they are, the charges that Army purchasing officers spec- 'llated in stocks of the companies %hey were dealing with during the war are the almost inevitable result of a world-wide conflict engaging millions of men and billions of dollars. Where the activity is so vast some are almost certain to go wrong, and it is impossible to watch all behind the lines while fighting is still going on out front. But justice catches up sooner or later with the handlers of the public trust. I' There was scandal during World ' War I, and now we are beginning to get the full story of World War II. But that is no cause for cynicism. Generally speaking the job was handled honestly and efficiently for one in which speed was the prime' requisite. That a few weaklings wandered off the strait and narrow is not surprising In a nation which gives men a pretty free hand until they have actually proved themselves incompetent. n In Kansas City yesterday Senator J. W. Fulbright said the success of the Marshall plan for the prevention of war in Europe is seriously hurt by the failure of government to realize that in order to get good men you have to pul up reasonably good salaries. Said the senator: "The inadequate pay of leaders entrusted with what may amoun to th-e task of guiding the national and international destiny is some what pathetic in a country where .a movie star can earn a million '•*'i year." Organization of Hope Develor ment Corporation, with B. W. Ed wards as president, apparently points to early use of the Industrie area of the Southwestern Proving Ground for factory sites. Hope has been trying for nearly a year to acquire the industrial area, instead of letting it be sold for salvage— and now, between government, City of Hope and the local corporation it appears reali- fc zation may be close at hand. * ¥ * By JAMES THRASHER The Farms Behind the Iron Curtain A country fights about the way it farms, says Dr. Herrell DeGraff in the current Steelways magazine. Dr. DeGraff, professor of agricultural economics at Cornell University,.means by his statement that -a naifon's agricultural methods-are' * an index to its industrial production and whole war potential. The more workers kept on the farm by antiquated methods and equipment, the fewer workers there are to produce goods and services, and to fight battles. From this premise he advances, with the help of a good many statistics, to the conclusion that in the possible event of a war between the United States and the Spviet Union, Russia would go into' the conflict suffering from a severe agricultural handicap. f"' Dr. DeGraff finds three roots of this Russian weakness —geographical position, lack of sufficient modern farming implements, and lack of individual incentive under the Communist system. The Soviet Union embraces an area more than two-and-a-half times greater than the U.S., but the harvested crop acreage of the two countries is about the same. America has all the climatic advantage; the Black Sea port of Odessa, in southern Russia, is in $ the same latitude as Duluth, Minn., and Aroostook County, Me. Practically all the rest of the vast country lies to the north. The figures that Dr. DeGraff quotes are prewar, but they reveal that American agricultural productivity has never been as low as Russia's was in 1938, since our Civil War. Our prewar harvests were one-and-a-half times as large as Russia's. Here are some comparative prewar statistics on the number of '& -hours of labor required to grow and harvest an acre of various crops in the two countries. Corn: Russia, 63 hours; America, an average 27 hours— 16 hours in the corn belt— and double the yield. Cotton: Russia 330 hours; America, 91. Wheat: Russia, 47 hours; America, 9 hours and a greater yield. Sugar beets: Russia, 530 hours; America, 92. Potatoes: Russia, 265 hours; America, 68. The average Russian farmer in the 30's spent 460 hours a year car- S ing for a dairy cow. The American farmer spent 140 hours and got twice as much milk per cow. It is evident that Dr. DeGraff did not write this story out of a desire to make Americans feel complacent, or to lend support to those who say "let's go ahead and drop the bomb and get it over with." His figures do not take into account the present satellite states of the Soviet Union. They do not take into account the probability that if Russia chose to go to war •$ next year or five years from now, she could swallow up the industries and agricultural land of western Europe about as fast as she could move her armies. They should lead no one to believe that Russia Continued on Page Two o 20 Years Ago Today 49TH YEAR: VOL 49 — NO. 28 Star ol Moo. !•»»; Pr«l 1*27.

Woodsmen rescued Dr. and Mrs. Robert Dykes of Taft, Calif., from the ledge in' the Unita Mountains of Northeastern Utah yesterday. Dykes had pancaked his light plane on the ridge Saturday. The young pilot and his 28-year- old wite, Marjprie, were "completely exhausted" upon their arrival here last night after riding 14 miles down an icy mountainside and journeying 75 miles more over •ait'but impassable mountain roads to reach this city in the Southwest corner of Wyoming. With unintentional understate ment, Dykes said it "was disturbing" when he and his wife heard a report on their plane radio "thai we wouldn't be found till spring.' "The roughest part of our stay wasn't physical," he said in an interview with a reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune-Telegram. "It was mental."

Finally we had to drink only tomato juice and ignore the other foods." I dreamed of hamburgers," he added. . To keep from freezing, he said, we sat in the cabin, both of us in the same seat, and we twined our legs and arms around each other. "We didn't keep warm, bat we kept from freezing by conserving our energies." Finally, he said. "I took the carburetor air cleaner bowl from the kane Park, said.

"It worked, but it worked too good. It burned all the oxygen from the cabin and filled it with carbon monoxide. That ended the eskimo experiment." Someway, when the supplies were dropped, Dykes lost one shoe and for 25 minutes ran around in the snow and rocks with one foot bare. Later when an Army C-47 plane dropped a package containing warm flying clothes he was too exhausted to bring it in. That night, their last below the 12,716 foot crest of South Burro peak, was one of the coldest so far this winter in northern Utah. Rescuers estimated the temperature was "far below zero."

Warren Wants Nomination BroughttoHim Sacramento, Nov 14 — (/P) — Gov ;rnor Earl Warren, only chief ex ccutive of California ever to be elected as the nominee of both the Republican and Democratic par ties, was a candidate for the Re publican nomination for presiden today. Warren entered the race wit' only two reservations. He will not make an active personal campaign and he will not seek delegates in other states. Under the circumstances, he told a press conference yesterday, he is willing to have his name presented by the California delegation ere carried out. High commissioner ingham summoned " Alan Cun- David Ben ilirion, chairman of the Jewish gency executive, for a conference n the grave situation.

Some bservers s.aw in this the possibili- y of a full-blown effort, to oust the Attlbe cabinet. Dalton's resignation marked the irst break in labor's big five — AtUee, Cripps, .Dalton, Foreign Secretary Ernest Beyin and Lord President of the Council Herbert Morrison—since labor came to power in 1945.

A- cabinet storm blew . up immediately. The cabinet met hastily, Attlee called ott; King George and the announcement of Dalton's resignation followed.

Dalton replied, "that, the publication to which Mr Raikes has referred arose out of an incident whhich occurred as I was entering the chamber to make my speech yesterday." He said a Star reporter asked him some questions and in reply "I indicated to him the subject matter contained in the publication in question." "I appreciate," he said, "that The seats were custom ordered especially for this theater and will be so arranged that regardless Of who sits ahead Vision will not be blocked from the screen.

The lobby will be completely modernistic With attractive box offices and a neon cove circling the lobby ceiling. The entrance and front will be made of glass with two large glass brick windows at each corner ol the lobby. A ghost from the past will greet theatergoers on the outside— the huge 14-foot old Saenger upright sign will run to the top of the building. The sign also has been completely reconditioned.

Rail Workers Get Wage Increase Chicago, Nov. 14 — (/P) — Two railroad operating brotherhoods and the nation's railways announced today a 15 1-2 cents an hour wage boost for the 200,000 members of the two unons. The increase, which a joint statement said amounted to $100,000,000 annually, was made retroactive to candidate. Further, he told news men, he hopes the California voters will approve the delegation pledged to him. Nobody in authority, he said, has jroposed to him that he take a second place on the ballot and he "would not be interested" in the vice presidential nomination if it were tendered. Warren's decision had been forecast except that some of his close associates believed he would not so quickly make up his mind on the question of permitting his name to be entered in the presidential primaries of other states. When he made his announcement however, he had resolved this question and reached a decision not to compete in other primaries. Warren declined to elaborate his reasons but associates said his decision was based upon the belief to show for his thrity-five years America but the three cats he loves. For more than a third of a century he has earned his way with a clothesline, letting people tie him up at state fairs and in bars and pool halls. He lives by the tips he collects for working free of the ropes within five minutes. He's done it more than 25,000 times. "I used to do good business," he said. "I been tied up by lots of famous people—'gyp the blood,' ly Cobb, Stanley, Ketchel. Three times I tried to get Harry Houdini to tie me up. He wouldnt. It was professional jealousy. He knew I'd get loose. "Once I had $18,000 saved. Then the boils came. I sepnt it all on the boils. I had 499 boils. Took me twelve years to get rid of them. 1 made medical history. The doctors at Bellcvue hospital all say that." .he manager some months ago told him this violated Board of Health rules. Scotty took the cats to a pet hop which charges him $1.50 a day to board and keep them. He's currently $94 in hock to the pet shop, and he said he can't go up to see the cats unless he pays something on the bill. "I have a great love for cats," he said. "I worship them. . am better to them than people are to their babies." Worried over their fate if any thing befell him, Scotty evolved his great dream. ularly and often in epidemic form It is agreed there is no more worthy cause than infantile paralysis. But if that can hold the spotlight for two weeks each year surely one day or one week each year cc-uld be set aside as cerebral palsy day or week not only to raise funds for the benefit of these chil- ren but to educate the public about e real problem of cerebral palsy.
