WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 - When
Fred M. Vinson stepped down from
the U. S. Court of Appeals to become
Director of Economic Stabilization, a
lot of people heaved a sigh of relief
and figured that the tough, price-
fixing days of bull-dozing Leon
Henderson were gone forever.
Judge Vinson, they thought, was an
easy-going, soft-spoken Kentucky ex-
Congressman who liked to tell darky
stories, relished a mint-julep and
would rather watch a horse race than
fix prices.
But they were sadly mistaken.
Judge Vinson does like mint juleps.
He also enjoys horse-races and
gcod stories. But all this and more
have been swept aside in his pas-
sionate campaign to stop inflation.
In short, Judge Vinson has de-
veloped into another Leon Henderson
-but with political savvy.
He has rowed with the farmers, he
has earned the undying enmity of
railroad labor, he has fought the big
oil companies, he has the cattlemen
swearing vengeance against him, he
has stamped on the toes of John L.
Lewis, -he. 'has- even- taken on, Old
Curmudgeon Harold Ickes.
Vinson vs. Ices .
Once, after Vinson had struck a
large and unyielding fist in front
of Ickes' drive for higher oil prices,
the Secretary of the Interior wrote
Judge Vinson .a typical Ickes letter.
Next .day at-cabinet;me.eting the two
men met.
"Harold," said Judge Vinson beat-
ing him to the punch, "I certainly
want to thank you for that sweet
letter ,you, wrote me. Some people
might have thoughtit sharp, but I
know what you could have written
if you had really set your mind to it."
Even Ickes had to laugh. In this
particular fight, Vinson was buck-
lug the big oil companies and the
entire industry. In another fight,
however, he was bucking the coal
miners and took just as adamant
a' stand against John L. Lewis.
While he was conferring with Coal
Administrator Newton, presicent of
the Chesapeake and Ohio RaiIrod,
the latter remarked that therm were

The University is one of the few divisions in
the city which has gone over its quota.' This
Is especially to be commended for there were
several reasons why the goal might not have
ieen met." The staff to be solicited was smaller

over last year's goal and an estimated ten
pereent of the staff was solicited outside of

Respon to the drive on the part of service"
men is bnteworthy. Army and Navy officers
have gvn liberally. Graduate Naval Architects,.
who arehie for only a short time, have contrib-
uted almost $200. The total contribution by
servicemen' on campus is over $800.
Two dormitories, Helen Newberry and
Martha Cook, have made house solicitations
for the drive.
The goal has been met. But that does not
mean that it is too late to give. Nor is the need
any smaller because one division has over-
subscribed its quota. Contributions can still
be taken to Professor M..H. Waterman, 108 Tap-

Nation's Top Soil Must
Be Kept fron Erosion
THE FOOD SHORTAGE, which is being felt
even in the far reaches of the University; has
little chance for improvement unless more scien-
tific farming methods are employed soon and
on a nation-wide scale.
Prime among-the country's farming 'evils is
soil erosion which costs about $844,000,000 an-
nually. Dr. Hugh H. Bennett, chief of the U. S.
Soil C'onservation Service, reported at a soil
conservation forum in Detroit last week that on
the ten percent of U.-S. farmland which is under
scientific conservation methods, production is
up 20 percent more than it was formerly.
To get maximum crop results it is impera-
tive that the country's fertile top soil be re-
tained and properly treated. An area of some
100,000,000 acres has been rendered unusable
by letting the top soil be carried down to the
These findings of leading agricultural experts
should be emphasized to all U. S. farmers and
steps be taken whereby they could receive in-
formation and help in actual practice. Far from
being another problem for Washington bureau-
"crats, the farmers themselves, through national
organizations such as Farm Bureau and the
Grange, must take measures to see that soil
conservation is practised effectively if the food
situation is not to become worse and the shortage

Back International Force
SINCE IT TAKES MORE than words to make
an effective foreign policy, it is not too soon
for the Administration and Congressto consider
some practical steps to achieve the great purpose
set forth in the Connally resolution-the epfab-
lishment at the earliest practicable date of a
"general international organization-of all peace-
loving states," strong enough to assure "the
maintenance of international peace and secur-

ganization, the moral responsibility of main-
taining a large enough Army and Navy to help
give authority, and strength to the new organi
zation will depend on us.
AFTER.THE WAR, we will naturally wish to
relieve from duty men whose service in the
field made victory possible. In view of this fact,
we will need more and younger' men for the
services than' were ever recruited in times of
peace by voluntary methods of enlistment for
the occupation of many areas Abroad, some of
them strategic posts, and others in enemy ter-
It is pertinent that we make plans for such
an organization now, ahead of time, so that the
men in the field will have a positive assurance
that new and younger men will take their
places at the end of the war. Such a practical
step would also give the younger men them-
selves, who will be of age at that time, a clear
view of the responsibilities which their country
will expect them to assume.
Prompt adoption of such a plan for postwar
service would meet these essential needs. It
would also assure our Allies that we are definitely
intending to take seriously our obligations under
the Connally resolution with its sweeping vote
of approval, 85-5.
