SUSTAINING MEMBER Jfttwnd Ijm tutorial >e!^ Jissodcdion, IRRIGATION vs. DROUTH The criticism against new IrrlRation projects which is based on questioning the soundness of opening new land to cultivation while taking other land, particularly marginal land, out of cultivation, may be partly answered by the current serious drouth. Inspection of the general re«lon suffering now from almost chronic drouth has revealed startling con- i (cast between the irrigated and non-irriEated zones. The former have been producing while 'he latter burned up. President Roosevelt's siaiement that the great Scanning the News By THOMAS K. CROCKER BETTER MYSTERY TALES A change has been coming in the writing of mys- r*ry stories. They are moving over into the class *f literature. At least, reviewers tell us that many #f them now are well written,, with character delineation, sound plot and honest'clues. not. mere compilations of thrills and horrors and illogical solutions. A reviewer in the New York Times says of ?. current book: "It has the good writing editors cry for jjysterles nowadays, and enough fast aciion to suit «yone. This book reflects the stiffening demands Of crime fiction readers and editors." The loosely-written "adventure-mysteries" of a f*w years ago, turned out as fast as writers could type or dictate, "are sticking to the bookshop shelves and »re almost as bard to move as second-rate books iA the 'legitimate' novel field. It has become evident that a general improvement is about to be forced by pure and simple economics." This evolution is a little surprising. It. might be .expected that the more the public read of the low- grade, sloppy mystery yarns that were so tremen- .dously popular, the lower its critical faculties would sink. Yet they appear to have developed and improved. dam projects he has just visited in 'he northwest are foes to drouth has justification. A farmer in a drouth-stricken region near Mandan. N. D.. saved himself from disaster by undertaking a little private irrigation project. He made use of a tract of Missouri river bottom land on his place, which he hadn't done much with previously. He installed a pump, used his tractor for power, and constructed irrigation ditches thru this piece of land: Today be has sweet corn, potatoes, tomatoes, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, onions and other vegetables to market instead of the wheat crop he used 10 raise and which would have bean an utter failure this year. He expects to get more income from his ten acres of vegetables than lie would get from a section of wheat in an ordinary season. His experience is further testimony to the value of properly used irrigation. Comforting Thot Boone News-Republican: Well, anyway, maybe the drouth will starve the grasshoppers to death. If the country Had to do it over again, there would be fewer stadiums and more houses. CHEER IN ANTARCTICA It is with considerable relief that the public reads of renewed communication between Admiral Byrrl in his snowed-under hermitage and the rest of his party at the Little America base camp. Radio communication between them has been cut off since July 21. A group which started to go to Byrd at that time •syas forced back by blizzards and inability to find the flag markers planted along the route. Now, radio communication has been restored and a second tractor expedition, this one relying on its own navigation and not on the snow-buried flags, has set out for the advance base where Byrd has been alone thru the Antarctic winter, not yet ended. Byrd himself has said hi would keep a light burning era the pole planted on his roof and would fly a kite carrying a light in the afternoon and evening. 'These items, plus the further news that the temperature on Aug. 4 was only 13 degrees below zero instead of the 71 degrees below of a few weeks ago, indicate that Byrd is safe, that the group joining him will probably complete its journey successfully, and that the weather down there can occasionally be accommodating. Not all stay-at-homes are able to appreciate the full significance and value of Antarctic explorations, but all agree in wanting these explorers to come thru safely. Newspaper Comment Effect Upon Credit Manson Journal: "vVe are now hearing a lot about the new moratorium on farm debts. Under this law, if a farmer owes more than he can pay, he can get an extension of six years on his debts, during which time the holder of the mortgage is barred from foreclosing. This is a fine thing for the man who cow is. in debt, but how about the man who is not in. debt and wishes to borrow money in order to improve his place? Where will he go to get the money? Banks cannot loan money to farmers who may later take advantage of the moratorium. Does any individual who has money to loan care to place it where it may be tied up for six years, during which time he is barred from making a forced collection? Of course no honest man,, who is able to meet his obligations, will take advantage of it. but how is one to know who is honest and who is not? Long standing heat records were smashed in Iowa Wednesday -when the mercury soared to 115 degrees at Ottuniwa and 111 at Knoxville. Temperatures of 110 were com mon and many cities reported ill and ill. At only a few places wag there any trace of rain. Crops continued to burn up. Southern Iowa is In a hopeless condition and the cen tral part of the state, on the border of the drouth area, is badly la need of rain. Northern Iowa farmers are literally sitting on top of the world. Their cribs are full of sealed corn. They are going to get a fine crop this year and a good price for two years production. So it's an ill wind that blows nobody good— but that doesn't make things easier for those whose hopes have been blasted by a searing sun and clouds that hold no rain. Neither does it make things easier for those in Washington who are struggling to overcome the depression. The drouth has upset crop reduction calculations, burned up farm incomes, increased the relief burden, caused untold physical suffering among people and livestock, set back ex»- nomic recovery at least a year. The keystone of the Roosevelt program is restoration of buying power to 30.000.000 people who live on farms. This was to have been accomplished by small crop reduction on all farms in order to raise prices substantially and distribute a higher agricultural Income over the entire farming area. The drouth will bring much larger incomes where sufficient rain has fallen but deficient incomes in the burned areas. This means ruined farmers and ruined business men, who depend on farm trade. Also it means fewer dollars to spend for the products of industry and fewer jobs for those who w-ork in factories. One bright spot in the picture is the income that drouth-stricken farmers wiir receive from the federal government. Processing tax payments for voluntary crop reduction will not compensate for crop losses due to adverse weather conditions but in hundreds of cases they will provide some cash income where all else has failed. A LITTLE GIRL'S INCOME "Child's Income Limited to $20,000 A Year,'' said the headline. The story told of an eight-year-old heiress whose father had been spending twice that amount annually from the trust fund established for her by the youngster's grandfather. An accounting was demanded and the judge decided in favor of the smaller amount until Margery is 12 years old. No one will feel sorry for the child. She can be very well educated, well dressed, well cared for as to health and recreation, well housed and all the rest, on that sum. Many whole families would consider themselves wealthy if they had as much. Margery herself might perhaps be happier on con- Leave Sales Tax Right Where It Is Humboldfc Independent: Some of the republican candidates may- be sincere in their demands for the removal of the sales tax. But if they are elected to office and find themselves confronted with the necessity of supplying another source of taxation that will create the estimated eighteen million dollars .derived from the sales tax. they will look a while and then leave the sales tax right where it is on the statute books. And as time goes on they will remove even more taxes from property and place them on sales. You should remember that it was Governor Nate Kendall who vetoed the first proposed gasoline sales fax:. Everyone has seen the error of Governor Kendal. The boys who are opposing the sales tax today will also probably live to ?ee the error of their wars. Mark Sullivan writes that the drouth has succeeded where the AAA failed, attempts to point out that the hand of nature has wrought an advance of prices that the adjustment program was unable to accomplish. It. seems to me that anyone who believes that loses sight of the fundamental purpose of the adjustment program, which is to increase agricultural income, not just the income of a few f; mers who are fortunate enough, to escare adverse weather conditions. Also, Mr. Sullivan is taking the responsibility for a verdict of rather doubtful worth when he declares that the AAA has failed. It cannot be denied that the drouth has been responsible for a strong advance in agricultural prices but it is not true that there had been no advance before the drouth laid its heavy hand upon the farms. The days of 10-cent corn, 30-cent wheat and two-cent hogs were history before this spring, the setback resulting from unsound speculation during May and June 1933 had been overcome and prices were moving upward in an orderly advance. Paying in Advance Rock Rapids Reporter: There are a lot of farmers in this section who have long complained of the processing tax; who have always insisted that theylpower. It destroys it Despite"the surplus production has been an j annual occurrence since the war. j . It would be unsound to restrici j I production below the limits of ! safety and there is no disposition ou the part of the agricultural adjustment administration to do so. However, when surpluses pile higher and higher every year and prices go lower and lower, it would be foolish not to attempt some adjustment of production. This the administration proposed to do. at the same tinje aiming to maintain a reasonable surplus as insurance against an emergency. But no one could foresee a drouth of the magnitude of this one. It never had occurred. It wasn't in the cards. If it has been expected there probably would have been no reduction program but neither would there have been any processing tax 10 distribute among fanners who are otherwise desti tute. SOPHIE KERR'S SUPERB LOVE STORY . By Sophie Kerr It all KC^S back to the law of averages. If drouth is the average condition in America, we should plan on drouth. If production far beyond our needs is the average, we should base our plans on that kind of production. We have done that — and the plan, despite Mr. Sullivan and other critics, is sound and is succeeding. BKG1N HICHK TODAY JAM-; TliJUlY return to !\>w VurU drd-riulucd 10 mho" >>rr hovr Iwnn.

Ash. secretary of the Ames Building and Loan association. wjJl be the special representative of the United States Building and Loan league in its membership drive in this territory, it was announced Thursday by Clarence T. Rice, of Kansas City, Kan., general membership chairman of the league. The campaign for enlisting more building and loan associations in the unified program of the national organization will culminate at New Orleans when the national convention is held there October 24. 25 and 26. A silver loving cup will go to the individual bringing the largest number of associations nto the membership ranks b-rtween now and that deadline. Mr. Rice's letter announcing the ocal appointment calls attention o the emphasis now being placed 3y the federal government, upon jome repairing, remodeling, and juilding as means of promoting recovery. The buiiding and loan bus- ness, he says, has been respons- ble for the financing of two thirds of the existing small homes, and must unite on a solid, program in order to do its utmost in coopera- ion with the federal government.

However, cotton loans in the south and corn loans in Iowa and neighbor states made it possible for the producer to hold last year's bountiful crop and profit from the advance. Today, by grace of those loans. the farmers of Iowa are getting more than 60 cents for corn that was worth 30 cents a year ago. This is the first time in the history of this country that the man who produced the grain was able to cash in on a speculative advance. Always before, the rich returns went to the speculator Today, the profits accruing to agriculture from the loan program are mitigating the effect of the drouth and will probably increase the gross farm income this year tar above last year's figure.

" to the small manufacturer, but not "with the once widespread belief that they're a recovery panacea. The old New Deal theory that recovery was being held up because banks stupidly refused to lend to good risks among small and medium-sized industries has a modicum of truth in it. Some banks have an exaggerated passion for liquidity. But hopes that industrial loans would be an important factor in revival have been dampened because, according to private advices from experts here, it is generally true that firms which have good credit can still borrow from banks. Some banXs are trying to push loans on what they consider good risks. Most complaints come from folks the banks consider poor risks. Uncle Sam isn't taking any risks or playing Santa Glaus, either, as thousands of would-be borrowers are finding out. Most of the applicants so 'far have been ineligible for loans or without sufficient collateral or prospects. The open secret of the credit situation is that business has no fundamental confidence in recovery. The banks are tight with credit, but business generally is afraid to borrow against the future as it does in normal times. * * • ATEVERTHELESS, the Loans to Industry Act operations are hardly •^ under way and they're bound to bfilp small industry to a certain extent. Some hard-up firms, at least, will benefit. The theory is that many have been beleaguered by increased costs under NRA. The $300.000,000 authorized for loans from RFC and the $2SO,- 000 000 available through the Federal Reserve System are designed almost entirely for payrolls and materials needed by Industries short-of working capital, whose appeals for credit must first have been turned down by the banks. Necessary red tape has held up loans, but RFC has made 53 industrial loans totaling $4.886,000 and has received about 4100 applications, mostly sour. The Aug. 1 Federal Reserve statement. however, showed only $5000 in industrial loans by that agency. The RFC is always considered "tough."
