Cultivated fields, abandoned fields, and over-grazed pastures and ranges ol this nation give up fertility constit- ucnts amounting to 26 billion tons an* nually. according to data compiled by experts connected with the United States Department of Agriculture. Most of this loss is from cultivated fields and abandoned fields and over' grazed pastures, specialists of the Soil Conservation Service, Arkansas 1, J. W. Sargent. State Coordinator, Con* way, remarked recently. The value of these plant food elements — phosphorous, potash anc ' nitrogen—on the basis of chemical analysis and the selling prices of fer- 1 tillzer materials containing the plant nutrients, exceeds two billion dollars annually. There is evidence to indicate that at least $200.000,000 of this an-ount is charged to tangible yearly loss to farmers of the nation. These calculations do not take into account the losses of lime, magnesia and sulphur. But this takes no account of the enormous loss of the soil itself. Rain- wash not only removes plant-foods but it also removes the soil. Plant- food constituent removed by crops' and run-off water can be restored in the form of fertilizers, manures and soil-improving crops turned under: but soil washed out of fields cannot be restored, except by those exceedingly slow natural processes of soil building that in many instances requires centxiries to develop a thin iayer. Attention is directed to' the fact' that when the mellow topsail is gone- with it also arc valuable humus and nitrogen that means less production, less permeable soil, less absorptive and more intravtable material - expos-ed in its. place. This is "raw" subsoil •which must be loosened, aerated and supplied with humus to make it suitable for crops. It was found by measuring run-off arid wash-away from 3.68 per cent slope that the average of six years 41.2 tons of soil material were annually washed from one acre of land plowed four inches deep, and that 68.73 per cent of the rain fall; total precipitation amounting to 33.87 inches of precipitation were temporarily absorbed as an average for a six-year period. From a grass-covered area the same slope and soil type less than .3 ton of solid matter was removed each year, while 88.45 per cent of rainfall was retained. Thus vegetative cover exerts a profound influence on the economic Humphreys a Master in Art of | New Farm Bill by Swaying Unruly Fight Crowds End of This Week Mere Lift of "The Beaut's" Hand Quelled Riots—!

By HARRY ORAYSON Sports Editor, NF.A Service NEW YORK—Joseph Edward Humphreys had voice, presence, personality, 'act, and razor blade Irish wit, but more than that was required to make him the greatest of all announcers. Joe the Beaut was a muster of mass jinking. *> "You rub 'cm the right way, and I drown , hcm bums •• when they get sore you make em Always (he Squelch Elcjnuit sore you make 'em laugh'," explains Humphreys, the dear old darling of fight crowds. Only that could enable a man to make'un- ruly thousands sit as quietly as a Sunday school class while he told them something they already knew. Humphreys actually quelled riots by simply raising his hand. A striking example of this was his restoring decorum at the Benny Lconard- Frankle Cotxifrey contest at the Lenox A. C. September 14, 1916. The remarkable Leonard had just swung into full stride and was en route to the lightweight leadership. It was a bitter neighborhood feud with rrjcial feeling high. There was no decisions in those days, but the,patrons voiced their displeasure at the end of 10 rounds so loud and. long that any other master of ceremonies at fistic encounters would not have been able to introduce the principals in the next event. But Humphreys did. ing to Continue Crop Production Control WASHINGTON~(/P) — The National Grange, dean of organized farm groups in America, submitted to the senate agriculture committee Wednesday a 10-point program for n new national plant to replace the AAA. Grange officils said it represented the crystnluing it farm sentiment against the constitutianally questionable rewriting of the AAA to control agricultural production through subsidized soil conservation.

"I ain't going to abuse you. That's neither my purpose nor my 1 'privilege; But T want to say that this isn't doing our game any good. You keep it up'and our game is done. . You lose your sport arid our dear .friends.-the boxers, lose their livelihood.". "... The scrap went on with no counter attractions.' Leonard' stopped Conifrcy in the sixth round. Humphreys' was the ideal contact man between the promoter, participants, and' officials and the trade. With Joe the Beaut in the Center, poor fights and worse decisions were laughed off. Arthur Pelkey met Sailor White in the old Garden-'August 26, 1912. It was awful. A section of the skylight was open for ventilation. It started to rain, and the bloodless battle was halted while the open' section of the skylight was closed. ! Th$ fight got no better, and; after another round-or two, a wag shouted, "Open the skylight again and a time elucidating. "Where's Montreal?" barked one die-hard, as Humphreys finished. "Young fellow," replied Jl)c the Beaut. "Montreal is in Canada, in the province of Quebec." The sentimental Humphreys was a little long the night the old Garden closed. He wrote a poem for the occasion. It was a tribute to the golden statue, titled "An Apostrophe to Diana." "Farewell to you, forever, Temple of Fistana, Farewell to thee, my sweet Dana," recited Humphreys, tears in his watery blue eyes. "Let 'em fight," howled a heckler. Joe the Beaut stopped and looked directly at his annoycr. "The more I see and hear of you." he said, "the more I believe in birth control." NEXT: Superlative scrappers. Senator Robinson of Arkansas, Democratic leader, said after a luncheon with Mr. Roosevelt that "probably by the end of the week" a new farm bill "will be ready for submission."

Lindbergh's Neighbors HOPEWELL, N. J.—(VP)—The Sour- land mountain people, who shared the anguish of their neighbor, Charles A. Lindbergh and his family when ! their infant son was kidnaned near- I ly four years ago. looked forward j Tuesday night to Bruno Richard j Hauptmann's execution with the almost unanimous belief "they got the right man." /Their grudge against Hauplmann was ascribed to two things: 1. The crime itself. 2. A belief that it prevented Hopewell from becoming a community for wealthy families from the cities, ringed by vast, pretentious estates such as that of Colonel Lindbergh. "It wouldn't be safe to turn Hauptmann loose in this cominun'tv." said the police commissioner. Bill. Piggott, Tuesday. The natives, said Mayor Raymond I S. Van Dyke, are about evenly divid- j ed on whether Haiiotmann alone kid| naned and killed the Lindber-ch baby. "But most all arc agreed the question is totally irrelevant—if there were accomplices, we can take care of them later," he added.
