When the war ended there were

nationals of counties who had been
uprooted by the war. Since »J
Day more than 7,000,000 of these

land mainly by the help of the
armies of the United Nations and

anti-communist. They fear to re
turn to their native lands, now
controlled by communists, lest
they should be imprisoned, forced
mto slave labor, or killed. 650,000
of them are Christians—Protest
ants, Catholics, and Orthodox.
Some 200,000 are Jewish.
Opponents of this measure
charge that to admit these refuge
es to America would endanger the
jobs of American citizens. In the
first place, more than 50 pc cent
of them are women and children
who are not competitors in the
labor market. In the second place,
all refugees coming to America
would be consumers which means
that they would add to the demand
for production. And more product
ion means more employment. In
the third place, as Mr. William
Green, President of the American
Federation of Labor, has said,
“The small number admitted each
year, many of whom will be
directed away from large cities,
cannot have any serious effect up
on our employment problem. On
the contrary, there are agricultur
al workevs, domestics, nurses
doctors and other skilled and un
skilled workers among the dis
placed, who will fill some of our
manpower shortages and who will
bring industrial and scientific
skills to the United States.” In
the fourth place every displaced
person admitted to the United
States must be sponsored by an
affidavit from an American in
dividual or organization guar
anteeing his suport.
How can we—a nation founded
by refugees and made strong by
refugees—close our doors to the
oppressed of this generation—par.
ticularly when we urge other nat
ions to open theirs?

Teacher Turn Biology
Experiment Into
Profitable Enterprise
From $125 a month as a teacher
in the Pine Bluff, Ark., colored
high school to 68,000 a year as a
poultry farmer is th shift which
Henry W. Foster has made within
the last seven years.
It all si.ari.ed in 1940 when
Foster a through-going biology j
instzuctor and championship foot. 1
ball coach, decided to have his
class conduct an experiment in
the cross breeding of poultry as a •
means of increasing egg product- j
The class secured a small flock
of White Plymouth Rocks and J
Eiack Minorcras. By cross-breed- I
ing the birds, the students not'
only confirmed the validity of
their text books with respect to
to egg production, but they al3o
confirmed their teacher's long
time hunch that with good layers
money could be made out of eggs.
Netting a neat little sum for
the class from the sale of eggs
and cull layers, Foster decided to
make the poultry experiment a
permanent part of biology lab
oratory work. Becoming adept at
handling chickens, he soon join
ed up with the poultry instructor
'.t Arkansas State college, stiuat
d across town, and together they
expanded the project and made it
a paz t of the college’s poultry ex
perimental work.
The expanded project included
broilers, fryers and eggs. By the
time Foster really was becoming
interested in broiler production,
the War department began call
ing for chemists to man munition
plants. Taking leave from his
teaching post, he served as a
chemist in a nearby plant.
Ater the war, the budding poul
try farmer resigned from the
school system and went into polu
try on a full time basis. By the
end of 1945, he was feeding 250
baby chicks into his battery
brooder assembly line every
week, and was marketing from
his brooders about 225 dressed
eight-week old broilers. In addit
ion, he was selling nearly his an
nual figures, Foster’s records
show that he sold approximately
4,000 dozen eggs and 15,000 dress.
,ed broilers to local hotels and cafe
last year. When asked how much
he netted, he replid, “About $8,
000 something over $7,000 from
broilers after the cost of baby
chicks and feed is deducted and
the rest from eggs.”
Rapidly Foster's farm is be
coming a show-place for farmers
from miles around who are
brought there )by their County
: Extension agents so that they
! may see his farm. As a result of
thee visits the agents expect
more farmers, who have been de
pending entirly on cotton, to be
gin raising poultry as a sideline
cash crop.
Mr. Foster who is a home
management supervisor for the
farmers Home Administration,
also brings home her some of the i
farm people with whom she I
works so that they may study |
how to incorporate poultry rasi- j
ing into their farming program. I
Although Poultryman Foster is
carrying on a good sized operation
he does most or the work himself
except during the summer when
his two teen-age children a girl
">d a boy—are home boarding
school. However, by purchasing a
mechanical feather picker, he has
reduced considerably the time re
quired for dressing his broilers for

"What Every Young Girl Should Sew...”
... is a new summer outfit, for hot weather descends on us so
rapidly that it’s the smart teen-ager who starts sewing today on the
clothes she’ll need for a sultry tomorrow! And even a beginner can
achieve easy-to-make, easy-on-the-budget outfits by taking advantage
of special aftetrschool and Saturday classes for teen-agers at Singer
Sewing Centers. -
Here are two summer styles that should be “musts” in your sum
mer clothes lme-up. One is a poncho blouse (left) that drapes v.o
give figure flattering lines but when you take it off, it’s nothing more
than a flat piece of fabric with a hole^in the center to put your head
through! Made from Simplicity Printed Pattern 1867, size small,
medium and large, it can be turned out in rayon, cotton or any fabric
of your choosing with wide eyelet embroidery trimming for peplum
and sleeves. Team it with skirt of matching fabric and you have a
complete dress. Or wear it with other members of your skirt collection.
The other summer suggestion is a dotted swiss easy-to-make
one-piecer (right) . . . good for almost any sapling figure. Made
from Simplicity Printed Pattern 1911, sizes 10-16, it will keep vou
cool and winsome-!-eking day and evening, too. Insertions of flat
eyelet embroider; .tnm give it eye-catching appeal. And you’ll find
rufflmgs, insertion and other sewing accessories right at your Sinner
Sewing Center. *
