THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE
The ready-to-leave vacationist who ac-
tually heeds friendly admonitions to “take it
old Lake Nuthatch sometime Monday, rather
than looking upon tho highway as an obstacle
course to be completed by 9;27 Sunday night,
easy”, is likely to be an intelligent, thought-
ful individual—a man who is on the side of
the angels. He seldom is called upon to prove
the truth of the negative and questionable
philosophy that time heals all wounds.
| He realizes that from the time the fam-
ily car, laden with children and other vaca-
tion paraphernalia, leaves the driveway until
it is reberthed in the garage, he must keep
his guard up, alert for the unexpected and
Time is perhaps the greatest of all vaca-
tion safety factors, according to studies made
by accident prevention specialists of Employ-
ers Mutuals of Wausau. Time enters into al-
most every phase of those “two weeks away
from the salt mine.”
I You don’t need a stop watch to time
your vacation travel. A calendar is preferred.
It’s safer and much more relaxing to plan
an unhurried trip designed to get you to good

In short, look upon your travel time as
an enjoyable part of your vacation. Should
some member of the entourage ask to stop
for other than the usual reason, it’s pleasant
to know that you aren’t a slave to a split-

That's why we are asking you, the new officers, to help

When you appoint your new publicity director, reporter,
or whatever you choose to call him, please inform The News,
so we will know whom to contact when we need information
concerning your activities.

Take time to get back in shape. The fact that

“a more equitable and realistic^
price of at least five and a half on
six and a half cents per pound ... J
would have saved the taxpayers
more than $10,000,000.”
He noted that “while this saled
program was in progress and fon
some time prior thereto, the1 de-
partment disposed of rather large
quantities of infested, caked, ■ on
otherwise damaged milk” at; 7.71
the fact that for approximately the
same bushel capacity, one procure-
ment cost the Commodity Credit
Corporation $20,250,000. The differ-
ence between the two procurements,
therefore, reflects substantial sav-
ings of approximately $2,250,000."
A company with connections in-
side the Department of Agriculture
got special treatment when it bid
on a contract for ventilating ma-
chinery to be used in storage facili-
ties. according to Huston’s report.
After all the bids were submitted,
the favored company was called on
the telephone and allowed to change
its offer "so as to supply the fan
and motor assemblies with 16-gauge
steel instead of the 24-gauge con-
tained in its offer.”
Most damaging revelation in the
confidential document concerns a
special deal whereby the Commodi-
ty Credit Corporation allowed man-
ufacturers of animal feeds to buy
dried milk for three and a half
cents a pound. The CCC had paid
sixteen and a half cents a pound
for the milk when acquired under
the price support program.
The feed manufacturers reaped
profits, since, in spite of the money
they saved when they bought the
dried milk from the CCC. the price
of animal feeds didn’t drop later.
On the contrary, it went up.
Huston learned that the three-
and-a-half-cent price "was set fol-
lowing an informal conference with
representatives of the American
Feed Manufacturers Association
held in Washington March 24, 1954.
"A substantial profit was possible
as a result of the low price at which
this vast volume of dried milk was
sold," he declares.
Ostensibly the dried milk was sold
to the feed manufacturers as a sub-
stitute for soybeans, which were in
short supply that year due to bad
crops. However, Huston found that

Whither thou goest, 1 will go\ and where
thou lodgest, I will lodge; thy people shall be
my people, and thy God my God.—Book of
Washington.—Now that the GOP
national committee has greased the
skids for Secretary of Health Oveta
Culp Hobby and even picked her
successor, it can’t get the obstinate
lady to resign.
Her patient replacement, Marion
Folsom, is waiting like a gentle-
man for her to make the first move.
But she won’t budge.
Though she originally threatened
to resign over the Salk mix-up, she
has exercised her feminine preroga-
tive to change her mind and now
seems determined to see the Salk
battle through to the end.
Mrs. Hobby first spoke to the
White House about resigning be-
fore the polio problem hit the head-
lines. She gave her husband’s ill
health as her excuse. Then she sud-
denly found herself in the middle
of the Salk whirl.
After a presidential scolding for
her handling of the problem, she
burned to a crisp and threatened to
go back to Texas. Her advisers
warned, however, that it would look
bad for her to resign under fire. So
she stuck to her desk. But every
time she opened her mouth, the

"farm support" pro-
gram has enriched a few big produc-
ers. while the farmers have col-
lected next to nothing.
Yet the whole idea of price sup-
ports is to help the farmers.
The great cheese scandal was un-
covered by House investigators, who
have been mousing around in the
government’s cheese. As an example
of what has been going on, they re-
ported in. a confidential memo to
the House government operations
"During March, 1954, the Com-
modity Credit Corporation purchas-
ed approximately 180 million pounds
of cheese at 37 cents per pound. In
April about 90 million pounds of

nal manufacturers at 341/4 cents

—Grain Bin Trouble Again—
A full-dress congressional probe
of the Agriculture Department’s
mismanagement of the nation’s sur-
plus farm products is long overdue.
However, it may come soon.
For a secret report prepared for
the House appropriations commit-
tee reveals how millions of the tax-
payers’ dollars have been wasted on
how storage bins for surplus grain
were bought at unnecessarily high
prices in an effort to "spread the
business” around among political
The report was written by Harris
H. Huston, chief investigator for
the House committee. House Dem-
ocrats took no action on it, however.
They went along with their party’s
then policy of "getting along" with
the Elsenhower administration.
Today that policy has shifted
somewhnt and the report may final-
ly be acted upon.
Meanwhile, this column has ob-
tained a copy of this revealing re-
port and can disclose that Huston
tells how one company got a con-
tract to erect 1,750 grain-storage
bins—though another firm had of-
fered to put them up faster and for
$260,000 less cash. When asked about
this, a Department of Agriculture
auditor agreed that "before this
thing is ended, many heads will be

the charmed circle of America’s top best sellers.
Ijut why? Why this phenomenal swing to Buick
on the part of people who can choose any new car?
Because Buick’s a huy—definitely.
And because it’s a bold beauty that catches the eye
and holds it—that’s for sure.
And certainly because it’s supremely level of ride
—and a sweet joy to handle —and a mighty bundle
of high-voltage V8 power to melt away the miles
and the high hills.

Because Buidfcrand only Buick—has the airplane-

It’s sheer thrill, and pliire pleasure, and a big boon
to your gasoline budget —and you really ought
to try it. ;

Like most other farm policies, the
cheese program was adopted with
a minimum of advice from farmers
but after careful consultation with
the cheese Industry. In other words,
this plan to enrich the cheese man-
ufacturers came largely from the
manufacturers. One of those con-
