Wye view of the 24-year period since
the following highlights:
Total sales came to $156 billion since in-

Redemptions have amounted to more than
29 billion, an indication of the extent that
_,e program has contributed to consumer
buying power and hence to the expansion of
the economy over the past two decades.
The public's current holdings of E and H
bonds total practically $49 billion and thus
represent a major store of personal saving .
In fact, they make up $1 out of every $14 of
billion in 1944 under the stimulus of patrio-
tism and wartime fervor. As was to be ex-
pected, there was a big drop after-the war
ended but E and H bond sales still have
averaged about $4% billion a year over the
past decade. , « -
Numerically, the $25 E and H bonds are
far in the lead, their combined purchases
running about twice that of all the" other
denominations put together since 1941.
In dollar total, though, the $1,000 bond,
has been as big a producer for the Treasury
Department, with aggregate sales of each
running about even at more than $40 billion
from the inception of the program to date.
Next in line is the $100 bond with sales
of more than $28 billion for the period, fol-
lowed by the $50 bond with over $23 billion
and the $500 bond at nearly $20 billion.
The smaller the denomination, however,
the greater the redemption rate. The latest
figures show that the $25 bond represents
only about an eighth of the public's current
holdings of E and H bonds while the $1,000
denomination makes up about a third of the
Secondaty Boycotts in Construction Proposed
If there is one thing that most of us dis-
like, it is to be'involved in a dispute with
which we have nothing to do. ft usually
leads to trouble. '
For this reason, since World War II the
trend in labor law has been to prevent the
public and innocent employes and employers
from being entangled in labor disputes. The
idea ia to let the union and employer directly
concerned hammer away at one another but
keep others out.
Labor law thus stops small disputes from
escalating into major crises that could crip-
ple neutral businesses, throw innocent em-
ployes out of work and harm the economics
of whole communities. The law does this by
banning secondary boycotts.
Yet harmful as secondary boycotts are,
the AFL-CIO now is asking Congress to
legalize them in the construction industry.
The legislation is the Common Situs Picket-
Actually, construction unions now have
the right of picketing at building sites and
they frequently do. Sut the picketing has to
be directed solely against the employer with
whom the union has its dispute and no
The AFL-CIO wants to let unions direct
picketing against all employers. Ironically,
this would include those who have contracts
with these unions and are living up to them
in every respect.
In our area, management arid labor in the
construction industry have learned to work
together to the extent that nicketirig no
longer is a serious problem. Even so, the
legislation that would allow secondary boy-
cotts would be bad for us and for the rest of
the nation. It should be defeated.

More Than a Forest Dies When Trees Burned
By J. CUIAEN BROWNING
If you have been a resident of East Texas for
as long as 30 years . you can remember when
vast stretches of the territory were kept desolate
by forest fires.
Thank goodness, this is no longer the case. The
number of such blazes have been greatly reduced'
and the total acreage affect- «I is small in compari-
son with that of the' earlier years.
This change for the better was no accident. It
Is the result of a cooperative program carried on
by the Texas Forest Service withthe help of the
Federal Forest Service, landowners, and sports-
men and other users of our woodland areas.
There Is no way of calculating the benefit to
the economy of East Texas which has resulted
from its program for the prevention of forest
fires but the total runs to a big figure.
Thousands upon thousands of acres of timber
that otherwise would have been consumed by
flames has either reached the stage for market-
ing or has excellent prospects for attaining
Erosion, once a major problem in East Texas
has been greatly Reduced and many, many acres
of land that for a time were almost completely in-
fertile have been returned to a high state of
Runoff of rainfall has been sharply reduced by
the lush vegetation that has sprung up throughout
East Texas during the years since its people
learned that they can and should prevent forest
fires. This has reduced flooding in streams of the
area during periods of heavy rainfall. *
Despite all this improvement, we are still hav-
ing .entirely too many forest fires in East Texas
and the battle for further curtailment of economic
losses from this source continues unabated.
This fight is now more important than ever
because an ia creasing number of visiters will be

When you first ttv over the
countryside, you notice what at

But ' no one could have

Tombs outnumber the rice

the country's living millions.
The tombs cluster bv the
hundreds in every patch of san-

nombers, they also stud the fer-
tile rice paddies, as if the cla-
morous dead were draining the
sustenance of the living.
Some of the tombs are new
and handsome in gold and blue
colors. But most are gray and
old and lichen-encrusted, and
the dead within them as forgot-
ten as the faded, fallen leaves of
a flame tree.
However, the ruin doesn't tell the whole tale.
Other than the obvious irrecoverable damage to
the landscape, there is costly, less apparent dam-
age. A close look will reveal killed wildlife spe-
cies, destroyed eggs and seeds, and charred feed-

This soft spongy humus, mixed with mineral

Forest conservation and wildlife conservation

dependent upon forest management for survival.
Fire is a deadly enemy of forest lands and

Where the land is burned extensively, the humus

It takes decades to replace a lost forest.
Even fish do not escape. Ashes fall or are
washed by runoff Into streams and produce

Our natural resources in woodlands and wild-

young outdiwrsmen. And quickly report any fire

At the time of the All - Star
baseball game in mid-July the
shape of the season in the ma-
jor leagues is pretty firmly es-
tablished. The teams that are
one-two-three at mid - Summer
will be right up there in Septem-
ber. The New York Mets and
the Kansas City Athletics will
finish last. The waning summer
days have brought surprises in
the past, as when the old Bos-
ton Braves rode up eight places
in eight or 10 weeks, but the law
of averages is distinctly against
this sort of thing.
By analogy, dare we take
heart because, at All-Star time,
the winter prophecies that it
would be a "long- hot summer"
in the slums of the big cities
had not been fulfilled? The
shape of the season here could
be set. The success of the civil
rights proponents in carrying
forward their fight in the halls
of Congress has already had its
reflex In at least a comparative
restoration of patience to the
The promise of pre • school
summer education has had its
effect. The history of the mid-
dle 1930s, which opened with a
spate of labor violence and
closed with peaceful agreements
between the newly fledged CIO
and the big automobile and steel
companies, could be more or
less repeating itself on the civil
rights front today.
It has always stood to reason
that "long, hot summers" must
at some point run into the law
of diminishing returns. Violence
must either go forward Into rev-
olution. or give way to common
sense adjustment of issues. The
Automobile Workers in the thir-
ties couldn't sit in forever; they
had to keep General Motors and

labor Itself Supplied with the
good things of life.
The truly heartening thing
about this summer is that the
Communists and their de facto
allies among the free lance rad-
icals are meeting with difficul-
ties in their attempt to tie up
civil rights violence with the
campaign to sabotage the U.S.
in its Southeastern Asiatic and
Caribbean policies. James
Farmer, the national director of
CORE (the Congress of Racial
Equality), has, despite his own
personal opinions about peace,
told his organization that it has
no business mixing civil rights
issues with Viet Nam. And, sig-
nificantly, there has been no
widespread movement on the
part of members of Dr. Martin
Luther King's Southern Chris-
tian Leadership Conference to
follow thpir leader in his pa-
cifists and appeasing approach
to foreign policy.
' In putting these words dqwn
on paper, we run the risk of be-
ing confuted by events. But if
the official Communists, the lo-
cal Maoists, the Progressive La-
bor Party, the Students for a
Democratic Society and other
^advocates of Leftist extremism
succeed in making the month of
August a shambles, the source
of the agitation will be fairly
plain to almost everybody. The
demonstrators will simply be
tagging themselves as either
the dupes or the servents of a

FBI and the local police de-
partments. about tbe movement
of conspiratorial agents to per-
mit easy deception of the Amer-
ican people from here on in. In
Chicago, vyhere there has been
a real attempt to matte it a
"long, hot summer" on the pat-
tern ot a year ago, Mayor mch-
ard Daley soes to it that the in-
stigators of lie-aowns and sit-ins
are well photographed for iden-
tification. The appearance of
Communists in key spots among
the demonstrators has been doc-
umented in depth.
There are pienty of ljitnors,
as these woras are being writ-
ten, that the way-out Left is
cooking up some "long, hot
summer" stuff for August m
Washington, D.C. There could be
marches on the Capitol, stall-
ins on the streets, demonstra-
tions in front of the White
House. Since the Communists
are giving Viet Nam priority,
the civil rights issue would be
subordinated to foreign policy
protests. But this in itself would
be a tip-off to the nature of the
marches and the stall-ins.

But the children and the
