These are eggs and milk, or the product of} milk in the form of cream and butter, but no one, Who knows anything. about farming will begrudge the raise of these items for the trifle that the farmer gets out of the raise will not do much to get him out of the hole with the odds against him. Today the dairyman. gets about half the price the consumer pays for his milk and butter, about 6 cents 'out of the 12 cents a quart for milk, ; the rest goes for the processor and distributor; and largely for labor; and while the farmer may get a little larger slice of the egg-dozen, he is the cheapest worker of the lot. Milk has gone up because all feed and. sup-i plies are up, again because of manufacturing andl distribution costs, and the same is true of eggs; where the hens as well as the owner are working; for their board; and when it comes to the dealer who supplies the needs of the consumers the onlyl thing that “saves his bacon” is volume and oth- er'supplies, as their .profits are well regulated byi competition. l l SMOKING OUT THE ENEMIES { l Martin Dies, the crusading Congressman who; iis showing up the coddling of the Reds in high? administration spots, now proves that Leon Hen-l derson has a half-dOZen Communists with known' records, drawing big pay of around $5,600 a yeah} for making trouble for the white people of Amer-1 ica.

THAT REMINDS‘ ME ,Our Farms May fee-d Russians BY RALPH HERBERT WASHINGTON.—Experts in the U. S. Department of Agriculture are watching with keen interest the progress of the Russo-German conflict, their special concern being whether there will be Russian thousand to helpjeed in addition to whaj is already planned for Great Britain and, pOSSlbly, China. Lord Beaverbrook, minister of supply of Great Britain now in this country, has been quite frank in his statement that his country hopes for great quanti- ties of cheese, dried eggs, dried milk and canned fruit, meat and vegetables, so that the 45,000,000 in the united klngdom can be properly fed. Long ago, foresee— d’ng this need. Secretary of Agri- culture Wickard called for more production in cheese and other dairy products. HE Russian situation so far stacks up as follows: the German advances in northern Russia do not affect the (1 problem greatly, because th 1; section is a consuming, a grain- blow is in the south, particularly in the Ukraine, which supplies 40 per cent of the country’s sugar beet production and con- tains many of the biggest and best sugar mills. The Ukraine has always been one of the chief bread baskets of Russia. The part already in- vaded, or now a scene of battle, grows about one-fifth of the Ukraine’s famous wheat acreage. Wheat and other small grains are usually harvested in the latter part of July and early in August. Sugar beets are har— vested in autumn. THERE have been some claims by the Russians that a good- ly port of the wheat crop has been harvested and transported out of reach of the German in- vaders. But that will not be possible With the sugar beet crop.

It is theorized by some histor- ians that Whitman generated a dislike among the Indians be- cause of his system of preventing the theft of his watermelons # he plugged the melons, put in a bitter medicine that would make 1t)he Indians sick and put the plug ack. Others believe the massacre was a result of the Indian custom of killingithe doctor if the patient died, and some of Whitman's pa" tients were not cured.
