Page Two Rejected Draft Men Should Have Old Posts Back Declaring Selective Service reg- istrants who are rejected at in— duction centers because they faili to meet Army physical standards have a “moral right” to be rein— stated in their‘former jobs, Brig- adier General Maurice Thompson, The Adjutant General and State Director of Selective Service, to— day urged all local boards to "util- l ize every facility" at their disposal to aid these men. While State Headquarters has been advised that most Washington employers} are reinstating selectees in their‘ former jobs, the General said the Selective Service System wants to make certain that no man is unjustly treated. The Selective Training and Ser-- vice Act requires reinstatement by former employers of men inducted into the Nation‘s armed forces who satisfactorily complete their mill tary training. The State Execu- tive indicated that employers also should feel a “moral obligation" to reinstate men who were not actually inducted but who had ful- l filled their duty to the Nation by!L responding to the call for service. I “When a man responds to a, call 'for military training," he} said, “he is fulfilling his lobliga-i tion to his country. When, for some reason beyond his control, he is prevented from entering its armed forces, he nevertheless should be considered as having discharged his responsibility and should be protected in doing so. Every effort must be made to al- leviate hardships and suffering in. these cases.” l l l l l 011 lCountries and Scandinavia in ad- World Traveler To Speak at Farm Program March 6 A vivid word picture of condi—i tions in Europe and their effecti American life, particularly, agriculture, will be given by Karl?

If we Americans would become as concerned about accomplish-- ment as we are about “inconveni— ence,” we WOUId an be better 03- Through most of the eighteenth. Facing the facts leads to only one conclusion — this country has gone “soft.” We have been so busy ,seeking some easy way out of the tasks we have before us that we have made no progress in their accomé plishment. We have become a lazy people. “Self discipline” is only the phrase of historians. Each of us has sought to minimize his efforts to such an extent that we find it inconvenient to do things which we know should be done. The desire for convenience has caused us to buy merchandise be- fore we could afford to own it. Kyes Credit has undermined our think- l ing to such an extent that a goodly percentage of our people are con- stantly in debt. Farm debt alone has been doubled by interest ac- cumulation. When one realizes that farmers pay more than $400,- 000,000 annually as interest on mortgage dcbt,~he can readily ap- preciate the drain this is on the| farm population. Consider what $400,000,000 left on 'the farms an- nually would do to improve the status of the farmer. It is signifi- cant that the family farms of New England are in the best financial condition. It is interesting to note that dairy farmers, as a group, have low mortgage obligations. These farms are usually run on a family ' basis. Dairy farmers maintain a good balance between cash income and cash outgo.

Such a , message, in gasoline taxes youngster. These billions of dollars in gas- oline taxes are being paid largely by families with modest incomes. According to studies by the fed- eral government, more than half of the car-owning families in the United States have incomes of less than $30 a week. For that reason they have small ability to ,pay taxes. First inaugurated in Oregon in 1919, the gasoline tax was soon adopted by all the states. In 1932 the federal government imposed a duplicating levy, the rate of which was increased in 1940. Most of the states also have increased their tax rates, chiefly in the de- ,”$Io,ooo,ooo,ooo ,3 LOOK BEHIND A THE .AUTo.’ , however, . would be entirely appropriate for use on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

The overall burden of federal and state gasoline taxes averages about 46 per cent of the retail price. For every $1 that the aver- age motorists pays for gasoline, he also pays an additional 46 cents in taxes. At this time America may Well salute the gasoline tax on its birthday, for the roads built with the revenue have eliminated the isolation of the farm. These roads have facilitated the movement to market of products of field and factory. By opening up the scenic beauties of the country they have made real the slogan, “See Amer- ica First.” These roads, built with gasoline taxes to serve the peacetime needs of the nation, now stand as the first line of defense in our great program of national secur- ity. These roads already have been produced. They do not have to be built. Men, equipment and supplies can be moved'ov‘er" them today. There is no waiting until next month or next year for these roads.

J. MURRAY LEE New Dean of the School of Edur cation at Washington State Col- lege is Dr. J. Murray Lee, of the College of Education at the Uni- versity of Wisconsin. He succeeds A. A. Cleveland, dean since 1917, who will continue to teach. The new dean was graduated from Occidental College and re- ceived his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University.‘ He has taught at sev- eral summer sessions at Teachers College and has been a member of the faculty at Williams and Mary College and at the University of Texas. Dr. Lee has published several books, including “The Child and His Curriculum,” with his wife as coauthor; “Enriching the Elemen- tary School Curriculum,” and “Growing with Books.” i As Dean of the School of Educa- ~ Ends This ‘ that are definitely cool.

The seeds should be where the plants are to grow in the garden, if the gardener plans to sow them outdoors. But pot- grown stock, planted out of 2-in. or two and one-quarter inch pots early in the season before the become root-bound will give the best results in those regions where ithe summer season is hot. GARDEN-TESTED MARIGOLDS The marigolds are always pop- 'ular in the annual garden because they are so sturdy and floriferous and because their colors are so showy. In popular parlance there are two recognized types —— the French and the African. How these names come to be applied is something of a mystery since 'the marigolds are truly American plants. They grow naturally in the drier, warmer parts of southwes~ tern United States, Mexico and South America, hence to allude to them as being either French or African is somewhat erroneous. The garden varieties, because they have been derived from native. species that grow under severe, dry conditions, are perfectly adap- ted for use in those parts of the country where there is a dearth of summer rainfall. Cultivation is very simple and seeds can be sown late in April or early May. The new flowers for 1941 in— clude several marigolds. Most persons know and use the popular variety called Harmony which ap- peared several years ago as an All-America selection. Subse- quently a dwarf Harmony was in- troduced and now, comes a big improvement on the latter typeH a new, improved dwarf Harmony that is called “Spry.” Nine inches tall, compact, regu- llar, and covered with flowers that are a rich maroon on the outer ipetals and, surmounting these, a crest of bright, light orange - is “Spry” and it’s a type that you will find very satisfac- tory for low bedding or for edg- ing. Its compactness gives it added value for formal usage. There is another variety in the 1941 novelties that is of the Dixie Sunshine type — large-flowered, fully double, strong-stemmed and free-blooming. This Chrysanthe- mum—flowered class has become very popular with a great num- ber of gardeners for cutting pur- poses as well as for massed bed- ding effects. The new variety, Goldsmith, is a stranger color than Dixie Sun- shine—a. golden orangeaand this, coupled with its early and free- blooming habit makes it the more desirable. A third new Marigold, called Scarlet Glow, is also a new- comer. It is a dWarf, double var- iety, and is the richest rod so far found in ‘this popular flower fam- ily. L.M. Co.
