Sees Red-Dominated States Forming Defense Agreement London, Dec. 3 — (If)— Czechoslovak Foreign Minister Jan Masaryk said today the European states of the Russian orbit mignt enter a "loose regional defense agreement," in f jll accord with the United Nations charter, if the Big Four powers lailcd here to write a peace treaty for Germany. Masaryk emphasized however, that in his view "an absolute break" in the current four-power lalks is "neither likely .nor necessary." In the interview, Masaryk indicated such states as O-echpslovak- ia, Yugoslavia, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania and -Hungty would have to consider revamping their entire foreign policies in relation; to • Germany and Europe if:the Big Four split on a peace treaty. "For our part we Czechoslovaks believe in cooperating with all our neighbors," he said. "We will do business with everybody. We want to be friends with everyone. We know central Europe pretty well. But we arc opposed to .the idea of a central European federation, the imminence of which Has been widely- rumored recently." He made his defense alliance statement in answer to a newsman who drew attention to Foreign Secretary Bevin's warning last week that Britain could not indefinitely leave Europe in "chaos;" Bevin reserved Britain's right to take independent action if the council of foreign ministers continued to disagree. 1 Ib.

MARTIN Yvashingion, Dec. 3 — (/r>) — Americans are -eating more meat now than they were two months ago wnen the government cailea upon them lo eat less by ooscrving meatless Tuesday. This does nol necessarily' mean, however, lhal Ihe meatless day campaign is failing lo achieve its principal objective — a reduction in. the feeding of grain to livestocK so tnat more cereals mighl be made available lor suipmenl abroad. This is Ihe season of Ihe year when livestock marketing normally inci eases and wnen meal pro- auction goes up. II also is tne season of the year when appetites ior meat tend to grow sharper because ol colder weather. Meat production by federally-inspected slaughterers was runnin" less than 300,000,000 pounds a week wnen tne meatless Tuesday campaign was started. Now it is averaging more than 400,000,000 pounds and probably will go higher before tne monlh is out. The bulk of this increase is moving directly into consumption. /,s is the case normally, some of the seasonal increase is going into cold storage lor sale later when supplies will be down. borne of Ihe current season's increase in meat production reflects earner marketing of livestock, particularly hogs, man has been the case in the past lew years. In other words, a lot of hogs which under conditions of the past few years would have been kept on larms for further .[aliening are coming to .market now. Evidence ot ihis is contained in Agriculture Department reports that inarKel supplies of hogs are running about eignl pounds lighter t/ian ine 24U pounds average of a year ago. Likewise, some of the current increase in meat production is restating irom tne fact thai some calves and semi-fattened cattle wnicn wumU normally nave ueen kepi en feed a lot longer are also oeuig som ior siaugnier now in- sUau. Vviiut are tiie differences in the conditions now and Ihe past few years wnicn are influencing these cnanges on livestock feeding and fattening? The answer is to be found in the factors wnicn led the government to call for lower meat consumption inducting: (1) A much snorter supply of feed grains, due to the small corn crop; (2 Tne high price of feed grains and (3) farmer uncertainty as to future livestock and mat prices. Unctojbtedly one of the things contributing to this uncertainty has been tha meatless Tuesday campaign. The prospect of a possibly reduced consumer demand for mat resulting from a meatless-day campaign has perhaps influenced the.trend to market animals at lighter .weights, and earlier than usual. ' Insofar as Ihe meatless day campaign has influenced ths present livestock marketing trend it has contributed to the government's ob- grain than • those marketed at jective of saving grain. Animals sold at light weights consume less heavy weights. Thursday, December 4, 1947 Thursday, December 4, 1947 Paragouid Doctor Jailed for Abortion-Murder Paragould, Dec. 3 — (/P) _ Dr. C. R.

Southern rice markets were re- of a lack of offerings. Practically ported largely inactive, because of a lack of offerings. Practically all of the 1947 crop is now out of the fields except in Arkansas v/nere some rough rice was till moving to mills. Preparation of the soil for the 1948 crop made rapid progress under favorable Wealner conditions in Lojisiana and Texas. The rice harvest in California was practically completed Dec 1 although scattered lots in the northern part of the belt remained in the iields. Large quantities of milled rice continued to be shipped by mills to the domestic trade and into export channels but current inquiry was slow reflecting te approaching holiday season and adequate BUD- plies in dealers hands. —o . Beuverbrook Says Churchill Will Regain Power Miami, Fla., Dec. 2 — (/P)—Lord Bcaverbrook, one of England's wartime leaders and British publisher, says "Winston Churchill will oe voted into power in the 1950 elections and then you will see conditions improve." Beaverbrook, here enroute from Canada to Jamaica to spend the winter, told a Miami Herald reporter that Churchill's health was never better.'" He declared the trend in England at the present time is "definitely lo Ihe right" : —o IRAQ'S POPULATION IS NOW 4,794,949 Baghdad (IP)— Jamil Abdul Wahab Pasha, minister of social affairs, revealed that the total population of Iraq, according to the recent census, is 4,794,949 while the total population of Ihe Ba"h- dad district is 807,576. The census apparently falls behind general expectations but still shows an increase of a million and a half above previous of- •ficial estimates. o — The U. S. fire loss in 1947 was the largest in history for any nation. HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Steps to Take in Planting a Tree Here are the steps in planting a tree: 1. Select from the nursery dr native woods a thrifty tree of a ( hardy species approximately six | to ten feet high. Care should be I taken to select a tree with one central leader and strong crotches. 2. Dig the planting hole before digging the tree. Mane a circular hole with vertical sides about two feet deep and three feet broad. The hole should be large enough to provide for the roots without crowding. 3. Dig the tree carefully, preserving all the roots possible and wrap them with damp burlap as soon as the tree is lifted. 4.- Prune the tree properly, removing approximately one-half the branches with a sharp pruning knife or snips. Leave no protruding stubs. Do not cut back the leader. Remove surplus branches irqni the lower trunk and surplus twigs along the scaffold branches. 5. Place the tree in the center of the hole, and hold it in a vertical position. Arrange the roots by distributing them evenly in tne hole. Prune of the ends if any ragged broken roots. Hold the tree so it will be as deep or a trifle deeper than it formerly stood in the soil. 6.: Fill in the hole using well pulverized topsoil free from trash and be careful to leave no air spaces. Keep all roots six inches or deeper beneath the final surface. \vhen all roots are covered, pack the soil as the hole is filled by .tramping with the feet. 7. Trees ten iect or taller should be supported by stakes and guy wires, ' using old rubber hose or burlap in contact with the tree. When the. tree will stand alone and before the hole is quite filled, apply enough water tu SOUK completely to tne bottom of the original planting hole. Tnis usually requires 6 to 10 buckcisful (15 to 30 gallons). If using a hose, fill the hole completely and lei it soak away. iV Finish filling the hole, leaving a saucer shaped retainer about the tree three to four feet broad. If the tree is on a slight slope, flare the upper rim of this small terrace so as to catch water Irom normal rainfall. 10. When sufficient rainfall docs not arrive, fill the retainer about once each week. Don't wait until the tree looks sick. Keep it healthy. Watching the soil will tell you when it needs water. Watching the tree tells you only when it is dying, and that is usually too late for a favorable response to watering.

The bond never went below the price at which the government sold it—in this case $10,000 — because the government backed it. You could always get back your $10,000, plus interest. ' Since they were such sure investment, and paid that 2 percent interest, there was a big demand for them. So some people bought, and.sold them to one another and, because of the demand, the price sometimes went up. For example: Jones bought a'$10,000 bond. If u luuuBanu J le , heaid il f"r 10 years, he'd get and mobile back ¥12,000. But Smith figured ho assembly cham- i anc * J°. nes could both make a pro- lit on it. to show that I 3o he bought the $10,000 bond from Jones for §10,100 (a quick •$100, profit for Jones). Smith-h-li it 10 years and got $12,000 for It from the government (a ail,90u profit for Smith). Jones was willing to sell to Smith and be satisfied with a 1 percent profit right away instead of waiting 10 years to make-a $2,000 profit. That was one way of dealing in the bonds but in die case- iust cited Jones and Smith both had done their dealing with full cash. .. Other,people; like Meyers, didn't have enough eash lo pay in full '.m- the bonds they wanted to buy. So they bought on margin. This meant they might put down ! a certain amount of a bond's full | price r.nd get a bank or somaonc ; to back them for the rest. i Here's an example, although it's a very crude one: You had only $100 in cash but wanted to buy a $10,000 bond A bank put up the $10,000 for you. The bank charged you that :3100 (1 percent) interest on tho use of the bank's money for one year. The bank held the'bond until you could pay for it.. Remember: That bond of $10.000 paid 2 percent interest—$200—- a year. Then speculators bid up the price, because there wcivn't enough bonds lo go around. At ilie end .of tho year you could sell that S10.000 bond lo another specjlator for $10,350. ' This was 3 1-2 percent more than the price at which the government sold the bond to you—and 3150, or 1 1-2 percent, more than the government would give you i'ir it aitcr one year. This gave you a profit of :?250— or 2 1-2 percent—on the deal—$50 more than you could have received from Ihe government at the 2 percent interest rate. (It would have been a profit of ¥350—or 3 1-2 percent — but the bank had charged you $100, or 1 percent, interest on the use of the bank money for one year.) The example just given is extreme but it explains how a speculator worked. - Actually, to head off spt-eulatois who were trying to gamble on the bonds with a snocstrina, the government asked the banks: If a man warns to make a duv.n payment on a bond, be sure ho it. worth enough money to caver ine cost of the bund.
