on the trips YOU take!
On long trips, short trips, all trips, you got far greater gas
mileage out of a ’53 Chevrolet. It offers important savings
in everyday driving over everyday roads!
Out to the golf course. Off for a week-end of fishing. Half across the country on ■
full-scale vacation. Wherever you go-however you drive-you’re going to get there
on a lot less gasoline in a fine new Chevrolet. ^
The truth is, this year’s Chevrolet owners are enjoying the most important gain in
economy in Chevrolet history. Plus more power. Faster acceleration. More “steam”
for the steep hills.

gasoline—more miles, more pleasure.
Along with this greater gas mileage, you get lower over-all upkeep costs. And

FORT WORTH, Texas—South-
westeri wheat farmers, facing the
prospect of a reduction in 1953-54
plantings, can help themselves and
their land by‘using the govern-
ment’s acreage allotment program
as an opportunity for improving
land use and installing needed
This is the opinion of Regional
Director Louis P. Merrill of the
U. S. Soil Conservation Service.
Based on information from the
Amarillo Experiment Station, Mer-1
rill’s recommendations for farm-
ers who must cut wheat acreages J
are mainly these:
1. Use a dive -ified farming sys-
tem to include wheat, sorghum,
grass and livestock. (Merrill point-
ed out that in such a system, it,
would be beneficial to return any
cropland west of the 20-inch rain-j
fall line to grass for at least six
2. Where feasible, practice a
flexible wbeat-sorghum-fallow ro
3. Use cover crops and stubble
mulch fanning to help prevent
wind and water erosion.
4. Put all land not suitable fon
cultivation into range or pasture.
In humid areas, Merrill pointed
out. crop rotations must be length-
ened to include more grasses and
legumes for livestock feed.
By all means, the SCS regional
director said, the capabilities of
the land should be used in decid-
ing which acres should remain in
wheat production. Land capabili
ty guides have been worked out
for all wheat farming areas of the
region and are in the hands of
soil conservation district boards.
Switching a part of the wheat
farmer’s acreage to another crop
such as grain sorghum, which is
more suited to some soils of the
areas, may actually mean greater
net return to the farmer, Merrill
explained. In addition, many thous-
ands of acres of wheat lands year
after year are producing scarcely
enough to pay for harvesting. Many
more thousands of acres are be
ing farmed at a loss. These acre
ages could very likely produce
profitably in grass.
Above all, Merrill cautioned,
steps should be taken to keep
lands taken out of wheat from
I undergoing erosion damage. If
stubble is sufficient, it should be
carefully managed, he said. If the
stubble has been destroyed, effort
should be made to get a winter
growing crop other than wheat on
the land or, if time permits, a crop
of grain sorghum. Even planted in
I August, grain sorghum normally
I can make sufficient growth to keep
the land from blowing. Sandier
lands of the wheat growing areas
would be better off if they were
farmed usually to grain sorghums,
| he said.
Emergency tillage to prevent
I wind erosion damage is just that—
an emergency step to be taken as
a last resort, Merrill explained.
I Conservation measures are design
ed to avoid the need for this costly
and labor-consuming practice, he
Freedom Of Choice
. You must join and pay dues to a labor Union, or else give up
your job—that is a compulsion which is now being imposed upon
hundreds of thousands of “free” American citizens.
Within the last few inunths virtually all the railroads of the
country have agreed with the railroad Unions that all employees
must become Union members and start paying dues and fees to
the Unions and that those who are not willing to do so shall be
promptly discharged, no matter how long or how competent they
may have been working at their jobs. The same thing is widely
spreading in other industries.
That this is as wrong as it could possibly be, seems beyond
argument or question. The right and freedom to join a labor Union
is no longer denied anywhere in this country. It is protected by
Federal law. But the corresponding right and freedom to stay
out of a Union is not so protected and is now becoming rapidly
extinguished in this, our “land of liberty.”
The matter is one that deserves a great deal more attention
than it has generally been receiving. Thousands of employees the
country over, who are not willing to join the Unions, have peti-
tioned and protested, but so far in vain.
If this be not- a form of tyranny, then what is it ? It is a denial
of individual freedom of choice. It is a levy of tribute, in behalf
of private organizations, for the privilege of working and earning
a living. It is an oppression of minorities and a compelled alle-
giance, which arouses natural and bitter resentment. It moreover
creates a condition of monopoly, which in the long run will in-
evitably work to the injury of employers, employees and the
general public alike. _
The principle at stake is simple, basic and vital. Individual
liberty means freedom to join a lawful organization and likewise
freedom not to join. It means the one as truly as it means the
A bill has recently been introduced in Congress which would
assure to every American citizen that he has a right to join a
labor Union or not to join, as he may see fit, and that he shall
not be subjected to any requirement or compulsion in either direc-
tion. This certainly ought to be the law in this land. It is to be
hoped that those who share this conviction will so declare them*
selves to their representatives in Congress. *
