CRITICAL OF GOVERNMENTAL WEAKNESS ‘ At the recent convention of the Nationall Editorial Association at Jacksonville, Florida} several speakers close to the national adminis-f tration were featured on the daily programs, 0nf subjects of more or less direct concern to the, newspapers. Walter D. Fuller, president of the Curtisl Publishing Company and of the National Asso- ciation of Manufacturers, spoke on the subject of “Freedom for What ?” and stressed the danger of any move to throttle the free press, which is the last bulwark of a free people. He stated that he found industry “all out for defense” and cooperating with governmentl in every way and there were no slackers, but hei pointed out that labor was slacking to the extent of a million man-days lost in the short month of February, or enough in all industry so far to build 480 bombers, or 24 destroyers, or a half million modern Garand rifles. “Defense,” he said, “must be paid for and should be as we go, lest the country’s future be mortgaged into bankruptcy, and after ten years of deficit financing the banks are stuffed with inflationary dynamite; and while it is planned to) spank business for rising prices the manufactur-. ing costs, both wages and materials, have risen faster than commodity prices.” He warned that we do have “freedom” for a lower standard of living, a secure poverty, if we 'forget our ideals for free enterprise and freedom of accomplishment, to call forth again all thel glory and power that is united in the real Ameri-- can way. Mr. Fuller, a dollar-a-year man aiding the OPM, is touring the Northwest urging full co- operation of all manufacturers, no matter how small their shops, in tools and small parts produc- tion. Incidentally, he finds in the Northwest a strike in the lumber industry which in this one community alone leaves a thousand or more men losing wages of more than ten thousands a day,‘ and to that extent slacking in the hour of need. 0 Other speakers before the convention were? . Harold Jacobs, assistant administrator of the wage and hour division, Department of Labor, who discussed the phases relating to newspapers ’ Lowell Mellett, director of office of government l l l reports and assistant to the President, on “News-l ,1 papers on National Defense”; Commentator H. R. Baukhage, over the National Farm and Home Hour, in .a review of the war in Europe. At the closing banquet given by John H. Perry, an early Seattle editor, and Howard Parrish, publishers of the Jacksonville Journal, Mr. Baukhage gave the big gathering some inside slants “off the record” of the war situation and doings behind the scenes at Washington. Senator Pepper of Florida was; if the principal speaker urging “all out aid” and‘ j convoys by the navy, but the tenor of some of the talks heard was rather critical of President Roo-l sevelt along yvar and tax lines and particularly Altogether! there was much of information that does not appear in the news or else must be read between lines, because the newspapers are cooperating with the administration as far as possible but are wary of any action tending to restrict the freedom of the independent press in printing the truth as they may see it. There was: considerable criticism. of the misinformation handed out to newspapers by some of the admin- is tration departments on the progress of war pre-l parations, as pure propaganda, the unwillingness to give the people the truth about what is going, on in their government, and the failure to correct‘ the abuses which are plain under the eyes of the administration. l THE PROBLEM OF THE GRADUATES Once again Shelton, in common with every other community in the land, is faced with the problem of what to do with another hundred or. more boys and girls who are finishing their home schools and will be turned out on a world to fend for themselves. Up to this period in their lives they havel been more or less the concern of the community1 and of the taxpayers but from now on the public W111 forget them—unless somewhere they trans— gress the laws and may become again a charge on the taxpayers. At this time when there is crying need for' workers in the machine age the state department‘ of Unemployment and Placement is promising to; l check the graduates and find places for them inE industry to learn trades and find their niche in, the great movement to aid their country. With employment showing great expansionl and absorbing about all who can qualify for jobs,i there is room and great need for training youth in; these growing industries; and without the neces-! sity of paying tribute to anyone for the privilege‘ of working and earning their own support. 1 l Tlulrsday. :strong on his weakness in curbing the strike situ-l , 'ation, a cross section of opinion down South.

M a k e s h i f t remedies are be—' ing e x p ou nded and tried, but for some reason no one seems inter~ ested in funda- m e n t a 1 s. The problem is not a “farm problem” as we are so often led to believe. It is a complex problem involving economic, political and s o c i a l forces. More important—it is the problem of the interplay of these forces between industry and agri- culture. American a g r i c u l tu r e built American industry, but now Amer- ican industry is slowly but su cly destroying American agricul ure. The devastating results of this sit- uation have been accentuated by the fact that _the farmer has been an individualist in a time when mass movements were rampant. Since the land is necessary to in- * dividual operation, the result has:1 been that neighbors are distances apart in rural areas. This sparse; =,ettlement, or lack of population! :oncentration, relative to city con- ditions. puts the farmer at a dis- advantage in attempting to draw together enough persons to start a movement or effectively block at, movement should it be adverse to rural interest. 3 The trend toward a strongerfi‘ central government during the last 5 twenty years has also lessened the: political power of the farmer. It. may be said, without regard to the political party in power, that; the greater the function of the central government. the worse off the farmer has become. l Kyes Thomas Jefferson was a farmer i and a statesman. He understood what central government would do l to farming. That is one of the! main reasons that he opposed it.: He felt that “states’ rights," which i allotted to the state the sovereign; power, would best protect the in-t terests of our rural communities.f The agricultural system, such as 1 that known to early America, had very simple requirements as re- gards its relation to government. Politics, which have crucified American agriculture, began to crop up with the exploitation of material resources, particularly gold, silver, timber, coal and, in later years, petroleum. This move- ment, together with the railroads that resulted, brought with it a, series of political manipulations, which served as the seed of rurali exploitations. From that time, un-l til the present day, the political. history of the United States hasi been a record of sweet words tol the farmer, accompanied by occa- siOns that have continually sapped ; the political strength, the property rights and economic status of rural America. The farmer. paid the bill for America’s transportation system and, before he had finished the last installment, the burden of l American industry was droppedl at his doorstep. The history of; the protective tariff of the United; States is one of special concession l to American industry, paidvfor by l American agriculture. After the: ‘war, industry readjusted itself;;' then went through a depression.‘ The results: The American farmer , will pay this bill just as he has] paid every other; the millions spent for relief and the millions spent for new equipment will all become the farmer’s burden. How does this all come about? The an- swer is simple. As population be-l came more concentrated, political» power passed to the center pop- 3 .ulation. These people, i' their anxiety to take care of their selfish interests, quickly forgot their farm , friends, and the balance of power shifted from legislators who had their backgrounds on the farms to , those who knew only the noisyj city streets. I We have become industrial minded, both economically and po- litically. This nation has forgot» ten that agriculture cannot con- tinue to pay the bill. The haunt- ing anxiety written on the faces of rural America should be suffi- cient warning that American in— dustry and government must di-l rcct their efforts to help the farm- l er get more income, less expense, and increased security of owner-: 5 up. , ____..___-__ l Car Thief, Arrested Here, Gets 15 Years Edward Stephens, 19, arrested} in Shelton a week ago Sunday for. l stealing an auto in Seattle, was formatory at Monroe by King sentenced to 15 years at the re—I County Judge Robert M.

This is the grief stricken parents’ first visit to the grave. While in Montana, they were entertained very graciously] at the home of Oscar's former the Mason County Agricultural Conservation Association declared this week. He pointed out that, in contrast to the need for more pork, dairy and poultry products, the Nation and the world have more wheat than is needed. As a result, Uni- ted States wheat farmers still need measures which maintain in- employers' Mn and Mrs. Smith, I come, protect soil resources, and who were riding in the car with I safeguard adequate reserves.

Their son, Is— aac, on vacation from United States Coast Guard service, look- ed after things on the ranch while the Carlsons were absent, and returned to his ship at Alameda the evening upon which his par- ents arrived home. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Page of Ta- coma and their daughter and son-in-law from Salem, Oregon, were overnight guests on Wednes— day at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Page. mal Granary, he said, simply demonstrates the national farm program’s flexibility in meeting any farm problem whether it is one of increasing needed supplies or handling surpluses. With a record carryover of 380 million bushels of wheat and a‘ large crop soon ready for har- vest, he said this country has 11,4 , billion bushels of wheat in sight for the coming year. This is enough wheat, he said, to take! care of United States needs for nearly two years. The world wheat picture is much the same, he said. There is a market for only one bushel out of every three for sale. He pointed to Canada as an example of what wheat farmers generally face. Canada has enough wheat Mr. and Mrs. Sundius Johnson Over and above her own needs to of Olympia came up to island home last Sunday to spend the weekend. ‘ Bobby Vylosek left on Monday for his former home in Montana.

Rainy Picnic Is Fun for Dewatto S c h 0 01 Students By Mrs. P. W. Nance Dewatto, May 19. Well, this is something new! A picnic in the rain and a grand time was had by all. i P. W. Nance celebrated his birthday Saturday, the 17th, with a picnic at Twanoh State Park. Only a few loyal friends and rel-e atives braved the stormy wea- ther. Among those were Mr. and Mrs. John Sater of Bremerton, Cecil NaHCe, Bremerton, Wm. Monroe Nance of Dewatto, guest of honor P. W. Nance and Mrs. P. W. Nance. The kindly. caretaker let _the picnic party” occupy a cottage with a big fireplace. Boy Scouts built a roaring fire and hot chicken, hot biscuits, scalloped po- totoes and coffee with all the picnic accompaniments were en— joyed in the coziest .manner pos- sible. The sun shown out in the late afternoon and all enjoyed a drive through the rhododendron roads. You should see the beau- tiful blossoms between Belfair and Dewatto and Tahuya roads. Just one vast park of blossoms. Mr. and Mrs. Arney Dahl mav- ed into the old schoolhouse last Friday. Mrs. Dahl’s mother and brother from Montana are spend- ing the summer with them. The old house on Henry Breu- mmer’s place was destroyed by fire last week. Only a caretaker. was' there. The house was built 55 to 60 years ago. Another old land mark will be missed. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Ellis spent the weekend in Tacoma. BENEFITS OF THE MEMORIAL POPPY The disabled veterans who make the poppies benefit. both by the money earned and from the oc- cupational therapy value of the work. All disabled veterans in need of help benefit through the vast rehabilitation program of the Le- gion and Auxiliary, which Poppy Day contributions help support. Needy children of disabled and deceased veterans benefit through the Legion and Auxiliary child welfare activities which-are given support by Pobby Day contribu- tions. All America benefits from the inspiring memories of patriotic service and sacrifice which are reawakened each year by the wearing of the poppies. l l l l l I l l l l THE PACIFICITELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH if th e i r ' furnish Great Britain a two-year supply. Here in the United States, he said, wheat farmers took steps a year ago to insure an ample d0— mestic supply of wheat for de- fense purposes by maintaining an acreage allotment higher than the market outlook appeared to jus- tify. They were able to do this because they had income protec- tion through storage loans and acreage allotments and could call ‘ upon marketing quotas if neces- sary to handle the bigger supplies in an orderly manner. In this emergency all farmers have definite responsibilities, he said. Marketing quotas and ac— reage allotments furnish wheat, cotton, and tobacco growers ad- ded protection. The program recognizes that a sound agricul- ture is essential to a strong Na- tion, especially during this emer- gency. After the emergency all farmers will need the added pro- tection of the farm program if they are not to suffer from fall- ing prices and surpluses as they did after the first World War, he concluded.
