SAYS SLUMP IN WHEAT PRICE IS BUT TEMPORARY KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 2 The f aimer Is "coming out of the slough of despair" and his gross income this year "will be greater than any time1 since the deflation of three years' ago,'' Dr. Henry J. Waters, former president of tho Kansas State Agricultural College, editor of tho Weekly Kansas City Star, said today in an address before the Cosmopolitan Club 'The recent break in the price of wheat," said Mr. Waters, "has taken away all hope the farmer had of a better turn in affairs but the wheat price situation is only temporary. As a remedy the farmer win grow less wheat." , r The most lasting effect of tho rodeo held here recently is the passion lor the lasso that has been ruling the younger generation since that time. Every block In town has one or more expert "ropers'' now, and woe be unto , the stray dog or cat nowadays. They are to be seen roped and tied and struggling In vain, for their captors don't like to let them go when once they catch them. One little yellow luppy , followed a friendly passerby this 'morning, and could not be lost. He was escaping from a block where at least 12 boys were trying their skill, and was willing to change his place ol abode right then. And the way these youngsters are learning to whirl a loon, anif Jumr through it. and In fact "perform," is pretty good. They art wearing out countless ropes and burn ing their fingers to the bone, but are convinced that they will be chain pious when they grow up.

What 1 would do then I can't say. There isn't any such situation now." Ford said that the deViand of the people for a change is largely the result of their wanting things done top quickly. "Not untH we get out of the ppliti-cal era can be expect big changes," he said, "While we are in it, let us by all means have such men as Warren G. Harding. People don't want high-powered cars until they've got some idea of how to vo;k the levers. And they don t want, to monkey with the levers until they know" in what direction they want to go.
