Farmer's View
WHEN SHORTAGES and strikes hit us where
it hurts the most - in the stomach - it
becomes difficult for us to be dispassionate and
We blame the OPA, we blame the President,
we blame the meat packers. But we never get
to the root of the problem. We see the symp-
toms and not the disease.
Fortunately no one has yet raised his
voice against the farmer. He is the cause of
the meat shortage, but who can blame him?
Here is what one local farmer has to say
about our present vegetarian state:
"Sure, there is plenty of meat on the farms.
But there is where it will stay. The farmer to-
day is just as much a business man as the meat
packer or the corner butcher. The farmer can't
afford to take a loss any more than others.
"Workers in industry got a wage increase
and industry is guaranteed cost plus. When
labor became dissatisfied, they struck. Today
the farmer is using the only means at his
command to get the same results.
"Look at what the farmer is faced with-
rising costs and no equivalent rise in income.
With no ceiling on feed and grain, costs for
these items have risen more than one-third.
But the same old ceiling is back on meat.
"What's more, the situation will get worse.
There will soon be a shortage of poultry, too.
Hatcheries are no longer producing, now that
the feed prices are up. Some farmers can no
longer buy chicks. And the prices on the few
incubators now being manufactured are up
$75. As a result, farmers can't hatch their
own chicks. Some picture, isn't it?"
If this attitude is indicative of the rural
viewpoint, it bodes evil for the American dinner
table. But this too is merely a symptom of the
As long as prices spiral upward, not only the
farmers, but all segments of the population will
continue to wage a fruitless battle for a cor-
responding increase in incomes.

Legislature Justified
To the Editor:
IN TODAY'S DAILY, Mal Roemer compared
the student legislature's action in the case of
the ticket muddle with the passage of an "ex
post facto" law. If the students who possess
tickets from a section where they are not en-
titled to sit were punished merely for having
those tickets, that would constitute an "ex post
Pipe Line Bid
I LEARNED recently from my esteemed con-
temporary, Mr. Walter Winchell, that Henry
Wallace's almost-esteemed friend, Mr. Jesse
Jones, might be behind the so-called E. Holley
Poe bid of $80,000,000 to buy the Big and Little
Inch Pipe Lines from the War Assets Adminis-
tration. If the story is true, the War Assets
Administration had better do some keen sniffing
because Uncle Jesse has no peer among horse
traders that I have known.
It seems that Mr. Winchell is right, at
least to the degree that George Butler, hus-
band of Jesse's only heir and custodian of
many of Jesse's enterprises, both business
and political, is one of the E. Holley Poe
crowd on this bid-a crowd which repre-
sents very powerful oil and gas interests in
There are certain things about Uncle Jesse's
bid that I like-including E. Holley Poe who used
to work for me.
First of all, it is proposed to use the Lines to
transport natural gas to the Northeast. This
would be an honest and economic use of the
Lines for oil would be economically sound. I
also like this proposal because this could be the
way to end John L. Lewis' stranglehold on the
economy of the United States. Natural gas for
fuel in the Northeast would be a continuous
ice bag adhering to Mr. Lewis' presumption that
he can, with impunity, challenge the economy,
the people and the government of the United
States at his own sweet will
There is another reason why I like Uncle
Jesse's concealed bid. He proposes to pay the
United States cash for what he buys. Wash-
ington is over-run, I understand, with promoters
who want to buy these Pipe Lines on tick. They
propose to ask George E. Allen's RFC to lend to
them, on precarious terms, whatever they may
pay the government. This would be "robbing
Peter to pay Paul."
If the government has made up its mind
that it does not want to keep these Pipe
Lines, it should make the purchaser pay real
money for them. Any administration which
can actually recover for the general uses
of government $80,000,000 of the taxpayers'
money is under an obligation to do so in-
stead of lending it to a crew of promoters
who do not offer a real dime of their own.
I particularly call this to the attention of
the budget-balancing Mr. Snyder while
he frantically fires unhappy government
workers wholesale and ruthlessly slashes
appropriations for essential government
services. On such a proposition, Uncle Jesse
and I, for once, are fishy-eyed bankers to-
But on the other hand there are some things
about Uncle Jesse's bid that I certainly do not
like. First, in abject surrender to John L. Lewis,
he proposes to give a monoply of the gas at the
receiving end to the so-called big five utility
companies of the New York and New Jersey
areas for their exclusive distribution. I do not
think that a great government asset like the.
Big and Little Inch Pipe Lines should be turned
over for the sole benefit of Consolidated Edison
of New York and Public Service of New Jersey.
I think that every community all of the way up
to New England ought to have a chance at this
Second, I understand that Uncle Jesse's
scheme has another monoply concealed in it
-this time at the gathering end of the line.
Those who are fronting for him -have al-
ready tied up a 30-year supply of gas to be
bought from a couple of big gas producers
at the incredibly low price of from 11/ cents
to 3 cents, per MCF. Since no other pipe

line will be available for the transportation
of gas to the big Northern markets, the
acceptance of Uncle Jesse's bid would freeze
at these thoroughly inadequate prices, the
selling price of natural gas for the producers
in the fields. Other bids before the War
Assets Administration offer up to 9 cents
per MCF for the same gas that would be
frozen under Jesse' Jone's bid at something
like 3- cents per MCF.
The one inevitable result - if I read the
speeches in the Rainey campaign aright -
would be that within a few years the State of
Texas will become indignant at the price it is
getting for its natural resources and slap a
pretty export tax on gas. This would raise the
price of gas to the Northern consumer without
helping the producer in Texas.
The people of Texas shouldcertainly see to
it that the War Assets Administration is given
a chance to think about these things before it
decides to accept a bid that is loaded two ways
for monoply.

facto" law. However, my understanding is that
disciplinary action is to be taken for failure to
comply with the legislature's ruling that those
wrongfully possessing tickets must turn them
in. Hence punishment would be for an offense
committed after the rule was made, i.e. failure
to turn in tickets within the specified time limit.
The situation is comparable to one where a gov-
ernment orders surrender of all privately owned
fire-arms within a certain specified time limit.
Without the time limit, such a law as well as
the present legislature ruling would be "ex post
facto." However, the present action is in my
opinion justified from both the legal and moral

Crux of the Issue
To the Editor:
WITH ALL the controversy over the student
seating situation, it seems to this reader
that everyone, except Tom Walsh, has missed
the crux of the issue - and even he did not hit
it squarely. Why has not someone, especially
the student legislature (which seems too con-
cerned with the machinery of condemning and
convicting its fellow men to worry why), attemp-
ted to ferret the reason for so overwhelming an
action by the student body? We think there can
be but one reason: The information demanded
on the football ticket stubs on our registration
cards. If one will recall, they will realize that
there was no place on said stub indicative of
the student's actual class standing, only the
number of previous semesters attended on this
Having worked for the "U" during registra-
tion week, this writer was in a position to hear
numerous remarks concerning that fact, and
the first we recall was the objection of upper-
classmen who have been here but one or two
previous semesters. They were afraid that they
would be seated in accordance with the infor-
mation demanded on the ticket stubs. Their ac-
tion was quite normal to anyone feeling that
they were about to be gyped. Now that sort of
thing gets around in a hurry, and before long
other persons of all classes were doing the same
plus adding a little. How can any group call
such actions fraudulent when it was a normal
reaction, in a puny individual sort of way, in
attempt to correct what was generally assumed
to be an error in ticket handling?
We are not attempting to say that it wasn't
immoral, for it certainly was in most cases-
in every case of "fudging"- but we do say that
before one bandies the accusation of fraud so
freely it had better be determined exactly where
the fraud started.

Insignificant Freshmen
To the Editor:
MAY I congratulate Mr. Tom Walsh on his
article in The Daily September 28.
It just so happens, Mr. Walsh, that I am one
of the great body of insignificant freshmen you
speak of. Insignificant maybe, but with plenty
of school spirit, and a fairly strong voice for
College gave me quite a surprise in respect
to football. I, like Mr. Walsh, was under what
now seems to be the absurd impression that
when the team came out on the field, they did
so to "win that game!" and not to perform for
the "paying guests."
I am sure if I were a member of the team,
the loyal backing of my classmates would mean
much more to my morale than stands filled with
so many people representing dollars in the box
I was not one of the, shall I say "foresighted
underclassmen," who received choice seats. On
the contrary, Section 34, Row 8 is hardly a.
choice seat, and since I own neither a pair of
binoculars nor a helicopter, I am afraid it would
be a waste of my valuable time to attend a game
I could not see. .

Comic Strips
To the Editor:
HOW CAN YOU consider such comic strips as
you mention in your issue of this a.m.? True,
I cannot fathom "Barnaby"- but then, so few

students can. One of us is over the other's
But to overlook, callously to ignore, the only
two strips of epochal proportions - this, is not
like the stalwart, fearless, unexcelled Daily
whose memory I cherished throughout the sum-
The two deathless masterpieces to which I
refer are, in order of merit, Li'l Abner and Dag-
wood. Can there be disagreement on this point?
Can there be even discussion? Most emphat-
ically no!
Let us have these or nothing. The question
is not "can we afford it?" but "can we afford
so to neglect the spiritual development of 18,000
souls so far as not to present them with this
solace and inspiration?"
Gentlemen, with all trust in your support,
I remain, yours confidently,

Meat Shortage
RESULTS OF A survey of Michigan packing
houses indicate no evidence of meat hoard-
ing by the state's packing industry, the State
Department of Agriculture has reported.
The report should eliminate suspicions in
Michigan at least that the present meat short-
age has been caused by hoarding by packers in
an attempt to raise prices.
The question remaining is whether the short-
age has been caused by over-consumption of
meat during the period when price ceilings on
meat were lifted, as President Truman has main-
tained, or whether there is really plenty of meat,
which is being withheld by the cattle-growers
in the hope that price controls will be lifted.
In either case, retention of price controls on
meat seems the only wise policy to follow. If
overconsumption las caused an actual short-
age to exist, then higher prices will not bring
any more meat on the market, but will merely
skyrocket the prices of what little there is.
