Foo i Loans Are Essential Opposition of Secretary of, Agriculture llj'iie and President Hoover to the inclusion of food loans in the drouth relief bill .seems to us to be the result of a mittipprclieiision nn their part of the crop financing system pr;- vails in tlie south. Food iotms are not "doles," as the agriculture secretary lias described them, but n regular part of the business of fanning. It is a rotten systnn, we will all; admit, mid one that extension agents, bunker?, aiul farm lenders are striving to eliminate, but the change cannot come ovsniight. Food loans are not one whit less essential than feed ami seed loans. That the latter are iicciUil and justified under present conditions is proof sulVici- ent that the former are also right and proper. In fact farmers who are unable to obtain loans through the ordinary channels at this time and must therefore rely upon government drouth relief loans for feed a:ul seed, ar-g the very farmers who cannot conceivably take advantage of the federal loans unless they include provision for food. No farmsr, unable to obtain credit elsewhere, can give the government a first mortgage on his crop for feed and seed without also obtaining food. The drouth relief bill will be next to worthless to much of the south unless its scope is extended to include food. As for Mr. Payne's assertion that the lied Cross is prepared to take care of the food situation, that is rv matter on whfEh' there is some room for argument, but gnmtod even that it is true it is fair to ask, as Joe Robinson did ask on the senate floor, if relic!' through loans, secured by crop mortgages, is not betUr than Red Cro-s doles. Was he, really, :i tfrcat soldier who saved France by a stroke of genius, or was he an ordinary ploddsr who chanced to win world-wide fame because of lh« mistakes of his enemies and the sudden energy of a subordinate? The <|u..s- tiou probably will not be settled definitely in our liini'. Meanwhile, we who can rememb-r the World War as a living experience cim mily .say that fur a time he filled our lion/on and seemed a Veritable giant. Genius or mediocrity, he at least hail a leading role in ore of the greatest dramas ever produced. THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 1931 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark The Lamp. Duc/^.s Again Those who are worried about the possibility of recalcitrant congr;nsnicn forcing n special session on the naiton thin spring really ought to join in the demand for passage of the Norn* auli- lamc duck amendment. As things now stand, the tail-end of a dead Congress can fore; the convening of nn extra session—regardless of the merits of the c;»e—simply becaune u clumsy and outworn constitutional provision has called them bad; to Washington 1'or a. very brief; period and has made it imperative that certain legislation be passed before they adjourn. If that legislation is not pas-nl, there must he a special session; and a few earnest talkers can keep it from passing. Under the Norris amendment, all of this would be changed. We would not have short sessions ol' liime thicks, and wo would not have to worry about the talking-to-death of needed laws. That is n point cminenlly worth hearing in mind.
