CTIU.WATER. Feb. 23 (JPi —
Hearings and debates before
special committees in congress re-
l.aiding parity mid its possible re-
vision. as defined in federal legis-
lative acts, should bring tills sub-
ject. back to the minds of all fann-
ers. Parity, as it was originally de-
fined In the earlier federal farm ad-
justment acts, was set up as a goal
for fair treatment of farmers.
As lung us this represented .some-
thing better than prices which ex-
isted at the time for farm pioducts.
there was no particular occasion to
determine exactly what parity price
was or might be calculated to be
During more recent months, and
particularly during 1942. parity
ceased to be a goal for increased
prices for farm pioducts nod onme
to be a basis for setting price restric-
tions and limitation of increases of j
price for farm products.
The price control act of 1942. as
amended under Uie date of Oct. 2.
1942, provides that no maximum
price shall lie established or main-
tained lor any agricultural com-
modity below a p. ice which will re-
flect to farmers for the commodity
either ill parity or "comparable"
price, or < 2» the highest price re-
ceived by the farmer lor the com-
modity between Jan. 1. 1942. and
Kept. 15. 1942.
With price controls hinged to po-
lity. farmers now become more spe-
cifically concerned with ilie defini-
tion of polity. The Inclusion in the
determination or parity of all fac-
tors which contribute to rosls of
production, including labor, has
now become a vital Issue. With
limitations now appearing in our
farm productive capacity, theie now
appears the question of "necessary"
prices rulher than parity prices.
What prices will be necessary to
enable farme s to nvet the competi-
tion of other industries for labor
n< eded in keeping farm produc-
tion? With cotton at parity, and
wheat under parity, farmers have
continued to produce surplus quan-

At that juncture the Cracker
glanced at the title of the book.
Through the barrage of mist that
Old Smoky had laid before his
eyes, lie made out Uie words:
CAN THE DEAD RETURN? The
late Mrs. Calvin Meggs. dabbler
Hi spiritualism, hud spent many
happy hours poring over this
Joe the Cracker shifted uneasily
and turned a page. What he read
next was not reassuring.
The windows hud been closed,
against the storm. Yet—incred-
ible circumstances!—one of the
long dark curtains was moving,
rippling. And suddenly a dry
scream tore Itself from the back
of Dougins Cotterby's throat
Something white and Insub-
stantial, like a ghostly feeler,
was emerging from behind the
curtain. It seemed to leap across
the room, wavering tenuously
in the uncertain light from the
fireplace. Douglas Cotterby. his
face ghastly, could only watch
as. slowly and Inexorably, the
thing resolved- ilself Into spec-
tral and leaching hand . . .
Joe the Cracker gasped, and
grubbed for Old Smoky. He took
a prodigious drink. But. about to
set the bottle down, ltd paused.
His vision was cloudy and his
brain slightly denumbed. Even so,
he wus aware of light in the room,
mode light than could come from
a partially blucked-out pocket
Wonderlngly, the Cracker turned
his head. The next instant he
gave a hoarse yell and leaped up.
A spectral hand was reaching
1 toward him.
# * *
Like the fabled lotus, Old
Smoky had the powers to in-
duce forgetfulness. The libations
that Mr. Slyncniski had taken had
obliterated from his mind all
memory of the movie screen; of
the camera on the low table. Fur-
ther. he was quite unaware that
his hand had brushed a little knob
in the camera and set in operation
the working model of a device
known as the Terrible Eye. And
he could not. of course, have been
expected to know that the Ter-
rible Eye. strangely enough, was
bringing in a picture of the arm
and hand of Miss Meath, stretclf-
ing snakily for a $40,000 tiara
from behind a curtain In the den
of Henry L. Channlng.
None of this formed part of Mr.
Slyncniski's working knowledge.
All he knew was that the same
thing that had happened to Doug-
las Cotterby, adept with a meat
cleaver, was now happening sub-
stantially to him. And there
seemed but one Jhlng to do about
it. That, in the words of Kipling,
was to arise and get hence.
Mr. Slyncniski had already
arisen. Now he got henCe.
He sailed through the door of
the Taj Mahal at a pace that
would have shamed a Mae-
MltcheU. He skimmed over the
; grass like an outsize In hedge-
hopping swallows. He put his-
1 tance between himself and that
ghastly clutching hand. And then,
he made a fatal mistake. Like
Lot’s wife, he turned.
Something white was moving
I behind him.

JjH.EVEN out of every 12 cases of sabotage reported to the Federal
J Bureau of Investigation turns out to be not direct sabotage, but
the tesults of carelessness, industrial accidents, or even petty revenge
of a workman against his boss—not an attempt to wreck .
effort. While FBI authorities CEulion that tlii large
percentage of false alarms should in no way cause
plant guards and others to relax vigilance against
saboteurs, some of the cases of pseudo-sabotage
have their curious quirks.
For instance, there wus the case of Ihe janitor
in a large eastern plant engaged in the manufac-
ture of highly confidential instruments. In ihe
wastepaper basket of the drafting room, this |.uii-
tor found what appeared to be a delayed action
It was a bundle of matches bound with adhi ive
tape. One match, partly burned, extended fiom
the bundle. It was obvious that Ihe one match
was intended to ignite the other matches, thus
starting a really hot fire.
The FBI was culled in and, during the inve-itiga-
tion, it was discovered that the under sides sf the
metal stools used by draftsmen were blackened and contained traces
of the adhesive tape. Finally one of the draftsmen explained and
confessed. It was a common gag in this drafting room to fasten these
match bundles to seats of the stools, then ignite the lead mulch and
walk away. The sudden flaring of the matches gave Ihe victim a
realistic hot seat and everybody laughed. This in a room where
invaluable tracings and blueprints were kept, any of which would
THWENTY-THHEE planes In an aircraft plant were apparently sabo-
taged by placing glass in the fluid of the hydraulic brake system.
These bits of glass, which would have chewed through the rubber
lube connections, were extracted in the crime laboratory of the FBI
headquarters in Washington, and on examination it was found that
all the pieces had curved surfaces, the glass being of u special heat-
Investigation was then directed to all possible sources of such glass
in this plant. It centered finally on. a “flow meter” used in testing
the brakes. On opening the chamber of the meter, the missing piecas
of the glass test valve were discovered and the cause of the accident
explained. During a night shift, one ot the valves had broken and
fallen into the chamber.
The operator had neglected to remove the broken glass and Aad
merely inserted a new valve and gone on about his business. A
simple case of carelessness, but the effect was the same as snbotage.
Most^ curious of all the FBI sabotage investigations is the case of
Nichola’s Buenopane, an ex-Marine of Italian descent. Buenopane
had visited the FBI academy at Quantico, and he decided he c-nuld I
beat the G-men. Taking a knife, he cut several electrical connec-j
tions on a B-25 Tokyo Express. •
When he was finally tracked down and identified as the individual j
who had tampered with the plane, he gave as his reason and in hi*
signed confession declared that his sole motive was to see whether i
the FBI could solve a sabotage case. He found out, and is now await-
