in the by in was the soon was the is February the iron by from eat ists 25c To The Editor: As a tax-payer and citizen of Pennington County, I speak to in my behalf as well as thousands of unfortunate ranchers, farmers and home owners, who are about to possession and ownership of their home. In 1933 our Legislature passed emergency bill in which we people who« were heavily mortgaged were given an extension to redeem our nomes. The "moritarium," act was hailed with great joy and welcome by the thousands living in our who were the victims of the many- years of crop failures, draught, hail storms, dust storms, grasshoppers, beetles and too many other destructive destructive elements that afflicted us unfortunate unfortunate farmers, ranchers and home owners. This "moritarium," act has been renewed three times yet the grei need, that existed then still exis today and only God knows it is gospel truth. Senator Weir, sponsored a Senate bill ~ number 313 whiclr extends the "moritarium," until March 1st, and this bill passed the Senate 30 1, one against it. The bill then to the House and there it has since that date in the Judiciary Committee, and I feel that time has given such committee to bring this bill out of the-committee at once for the House to vote upon it and adoption and; given to our governor for his signature so ' that we not be evicted from our homes March the 1st, 1941, unless this becomes a law before that day. This is no time' for petty larceny personal grudges to enter into by the House for this Senate bill number 13 to become a law. one's personal feeling may sometimes be mistaken and this is a time there are affected by the action of the House over 20,000 fanners, ranchers and homeowners. ' In the name of comrnonsense good government- let us not overlook overlook those who here gave their measure'of sincere devotion and let Mr. Senator and Mr. Representative, Representative, act at this time and work the interest of the majority who fighting this battle to live, here this, state. The emergency that existed in 1933 still is here. . I plead with you thousands of ranchers, farmers, and homeowners to write to your representative or senator, your governor, and tell your actual situation. This is no for any .secrets about pitiful situation, and I for one want to live here own my farm that Almighty God will intercede in. this hour for sake I pray to Him to open the hearts of those who" can and will help us.
