Enlistees Filling Navy Quota Goals Quota for the Dothan Naval Recruiting Station are being f.llod rapidly, according to r-cruit- rnay the calamity of the last For- CPO Edward Radi- Ministers conference v.-fl.c re-1 rt.crulting officer ,od-y that since the holidays a steady Mlnisten conference was re versed. The most important agreement of the conference was the decision to create a commission under the United Nations organization to eliminate all atomic weapons and to develop atomic energy for the benefit of mankind. The advent of the atomic bomb had produced suspicious and heart- burnings which undoubtedly were at the bottom of the failure of the previous Foreign Ministers parley. The Moscow decision is calculated to remove those suspicions, and this in itself would have marked the conference as having achieved a major success. More than in- cidentally this will give the United Nations organization a concrete major problem to deal with when it meets next month, and that's all to the good. Of course the Moscow conference appears to have left some delicate and important difficulties unsolved. Among these are Russia's rela- tions with Persia and Turkey, both questions of world importance and full of dynamite. However, it would be absurd to expect ihe Big Three Foreign "Min- isters to be able to iron out all their differences at one sitting. It would be equally absurd not to ex- pect the three to have any differ- ences, because they are bound to exist, just as they do among the people of individual countries, or individual cities or even individual families. So long as there is a spirit of real cooperation, the differences will !ake care of themselves. Despite the existence of some very knotty political problems to be solved, enough would appear to have been achieved to ease the situation both In Europe and in the Orient. The selling up of a Far Eastern commission to deal with major questions must be highly pleasing to Russia, and the same may be said of. the AnglorAmerican agreement to recognize the Bulgar- ian and Romanian governments lift- stream of applicants have been 1 in the office volunteering sfrvicf in the Navy.

Mr. Truman had said eailier these might become essen- tial in an investigation of wage demands. Garrison asserted that the board wuuld make at least one dbtinite request of the ssid detailed information "to enable it to pass on the factors of reduced take-home pay, cost of living crcase, and any other grounds which may be urged as equitaole reasons for an increase in wages." The corporation, through attor- ney Walter Gordon, Merritt, indi- cated last week it would be will- ing to argue what made up "fair and equitable" wage rate on such bases as those. The recess was called last Fri- day when it became apparent the company was displeased with the punel's decision to consider "abil- ity to pay."

Speaking to over 300 state and county extension service workers attending their annual meeting in Auburn. Director Davis declared ''if parity were destroyed our farm price structure would soon col- lapse Relative to price supports for industry, labor and agriculture, Director Davis summarized the present situation as follows: For more than a century Ameri- can industry has controlled prices by the equivalent of an organiza- tion combined with production con- 01 and supported by traffic laws. Tor half a century organized la- bor fought for a floor under wages and a ceiling over hours. Both of these came in the Wages Hour Act. Other federal laws, with the help of eave collective bargaining j legal status and power. I am certain that neither indus- try nor labor will give up its price supports and protection. I am equally certain Hhat farmers should hold fast to what they have, with such improvements as can be made from time to time. This parity policy, as I see it, has three major objectives. They are: (1) Greater economic stability, (2) Growth of the total real income of the U. S. and <3) A rising standard of liv- inc for all groups, especially at the bottom. I know that the condition of agri- culture has been better with the parity policy than it wag before. So, it has caused progress. In the future it should contribute to furth- er progress and more improve- ment. It is clear, therefore, that we should support it. matter, the present advisory com- mission probsbly would become the new policy-making body, njith the addition of Russia which previously refused to participate. Release of the communique touched off much speculation about the extent to which the policy-mak- ing commission and the four-pow- er council would curtail the author- ity of Gen. Douglas MacArthur as Supreme Allied Commander in Japan. The doucument provided no clear-cut answer. But it appeared that because MacArthur has been the adminis- trator of policy in Japan, not the maker of it, his powers would be left pretty much intact. cheeked.
