Washington, July 7 — (/P) — The armed services are appealing to the public, and especially exGI's, to help solve some knotty military problems that have American in venlors stumped. » They want quick answers to such divorse poblcms as how to build a landing field or a road virtually over night and how to make a gasoline enginegensrator small enough for a man to carry.

V Fight Between West World, Russia Doesn't Necessarily Mean a Shooting War By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The battle of the isms between the Russian bloc and the western democracies is intensifying the result of Moscow's curl refusal to join in a unified program for the economic rehabilitation ol' stricken Europe — a refusal generally accepted in the western world us sig- niiyinu Soviet intentions to push the campaign for the communication' of all the continent, ancl other lands. That's a disconcerting development, though not unexpected. It likelv means an ideological fishl to a finish. However, it strikes ;ne we shall make a mistake if we adopt the pessimistic vicwp being advanced by some that 'ilii:, ideological warfare necessarily means combat with bombs and guns. Of course we should be foolish incuts for the' conference of nations to consider the economic program proposed by U. S. Secretary ot Slate Marshall. As demonstrating that Russia's cooperation still is wanted, London arid Paris at the week-end sent nosv r.oies to Moscow, expressing the hope that the Soviet decision to boycott the American plan wasn't f'nal. All the countries within the Soviet zone of influence also have been asked to join the western countries in the forthcoming Paris conference. However, unless Moscow changes ils attitude one would expect it to order its satellites not to participate, tnus precluding'hope of achieving the badly needed eco. nm ( noniic unity lor «U Europe. O —Extension Service Photc-s B. J. .Ellis,' a leading forest far mer in Hempstcad county, has recently .completed a pulpwood cut on 16 acres of old field pins.

With cucumbers beets, cabbages and the stand for rapid growth. Mr. Nelson estimated the growth at less than 'A cord per acre per year before the cut was made. A growth rate of 3/4 cord per acre per year can be .expected after the thinning. In addition to the increased growth rate the value of the entire stand is increasing rapidly due to the many trees moving from pulpwood size to the higher priced saw logs size. One must also remember that all the growth is being placed on the remain high grade trees. None of the productive capacity of the land is being wasted on low grade trees. In addition to placing the stand n good condition for growth Mr. Ellis realized nearly $10.00 per icre stumpage for his pulpwood. Since 1932 nearly M> million feet I of saw logs have been sold from .he farm. Due to careful selection of the trees to cut, care in logging, and good fire protection, Mr. Ellis was able lo sell 125,000 feet of saw logs last year. About 2/3 o£ this was hardwood and 1/3 pine. Wilh 240 acres of productive timber land producing 400 bo-.ird feet per acre per year an annual sale of 75,000 board feet could be made and slill leave some growth to build up the board feet volume of Ihe stand. Home use of timber products has also played a definite p-irt in woodland management on Mr. Ellis' farm. During the past year 10 cords of fuelwood has been cut from cull trees. Small thick clump of pine have been thinned IT supply 5 cords of sorghum wood and 8000 feet of logs were cul on the shares to provide 5000 feel of construction lumber for the farm. Trees which are too low in gride to provide for home use are -load- cned in the woods lo make room for a more desirable tree. Any farmer desiring assistance in woodland management, selective cutting or limber sland improvement should contact Oliver L. Adams, Hempstcad county agent, for the aid of Farm Forester Robert Nelson. , other vegetables as his materials, Soldan has created the design of a iu his -10 by GO foot garde;;.

Paris, July 9 — (/P)— Romania rejected today the British-French nvitation to a Paris conference on the Marshall aid-to-Europe propo- osal, and became the second nation in the Russian spere to decline the bid. Bulgaria's rejection came late last night. The Romanian cabinet issued a > communique rejecting the invitation.

Here's the kind of letlcr that a newspaper editor hates to print, and in iact doesn't print until he has thought the matter tnrough and arrived at what seems to him a satisfactory reply. "Editor The Star: Sometime ago . .

But it can't be said, in all reasonableness, that the money volcd to i 'hstruct livestock snows was taken away from funds that might have been voted for the relief of the afflicted. Every thinking citizen wants to see both programs supported. But the truth is that Arkansas is gradually losing her cotton market, and tha very safety of our daily bread depends upon our finding other businesses lo employ our people. This is a main-line issue, affecting both the well and the al'ilict- ,ed. If our well people can't make 'a- living there isn't much in prospect for the afflicted. We have got to carry on the fight for necessary relief works, but anything that contributes to the wealth of our stale doesn't stand in the way of relief Work — it actually contributes to its eventual success. BY JAMES THRESHER Split Political Party The split personality of commu- ,; nism in this country is pointed up oy a provision in the new labor law which in effect makes it illegal for a Communist lo hold office in a labor union. As things stand now a Communist while barred from union office, may theoretically hold public office. Communist candidates for President received votes in 37 states in 1932, in 34 states in 1936, and in 24 four years later; The courts of some states have held that calling a person a Com- l munist can constitute libel. It is not libelous to call a man a Republican in the Deep South, or a Democrat in Vermont. Yel the Communist," like the Democrat 01 Republican, belongs to a legimitate political party which can nominate candidates and, if it can persuade enough voters, elect them. Well, what is the Communist Party? Is it an organization which owes allegiance to and takes orders from a foreign power, and which seeks to overthrow the U|ii-. . t ted States government by force? Or is it a legi'iniate political group operating within the structure , of our government, obeying the. requirements and enjoying the protection of our stale and national laws? The' answer to both questions is yes unless one chooses to disregard all the available evidence which Continued on PaKe Two o MoreU.S.Aid Washington, July 9 — UH— Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) proposed today that Congress ask President Truman to seek revision of the United Nations charter in behalf of a "permanent world peace." .
