He stressed the Idea that we need to work harder for equalization of taxes and for the relief of real estate. He deplored the facl! that the highway department spends such huge sums in improving main highways while the rural folk are left in the mud. S3. G. Hamil, county agent, gave a very interesting and instructive talk on insect pests and suggested remedies and control' measures. His talk was still more heightened by the fact that he used a stereopticon to show tne various pests in the different stages of development and how they operate on the fruits and vegetables. Miss Kathleen Kitchey, Clover Creek grange, gave a monologue, The Agent." Her effort was appreciated and heartily applauded. At this time the meeting adjourned to meet around the festal board in the .Y. M. C. A.

Sdmethlng of this sort has been : done In several states on country highways, but It is a relatively new departure for cities, and one that alarms Chicago's police commissioner. In dismissing four thousand traffic cases all in one batch, Judge Freeman L. Falrbank said here: "Times have changed. The drlVefs are better than they were ten years ago, and the cars are more/suited to higher rates o£ speed. We cannot judge a maniby'how fast he la driving. We must know the width of the street at the point of arrest, the time of day, the amount of traffic congestion, the mechanical condition of the car, and the experience of the driver, "A man may drive at a lively pace without endangering anyone, ot he may drive at a moderate speed and be a menace to life, limb and property." Park police officers, who control the boulevards, indicate that on straight stretches even in Chicago, forty miles an hour may not be excessive.

I ADVERTISERS TO BE INVESTIGATED By ROBERT MACK, Staff Correspondent. (Copyright, 1930, by Consolidated Frew.) WASHINGTON, D. C., May 28.— Uncle Sam's economic police—the federal trade commission—are preparing to dip Into radio broadcasting to rid it of allegedly abnoxious and misleading advertising. This agency, created to keep American business endeavor on the straight and narrow, has tentatively prepared a complaint against a radio advertiser, who has been using individual stations throughout the country to promote a medical appliance held out to b* a, cure-all. More than a dozen stations have been forewarded, it is ^earned, and practically all of them have discontinued the program. ;•-The complaint itself—the first which the commission ever has had under contemplation in broadcast advertising —probably will be issued shortly. Whether it 'will be againct the advertiser alone, or against radio stations too, depends upon developments of the immediate future. If all of the stations duit using the program under scrutiny, the complaint merely will be against the company itself. It is the Job of the trade commission to eliminate unfair methods of Using in the same light as newspaper and periodical advertising. That there Is a fertile field ahead for the commission seems unquestioned. Scores of stations are broadcasting "tainted" sponsored programs. The same kind of advertisements on the printed page would not be countenanced. Complaints against direct-selling, commodity plugging, and even lottery .campaigning over the i"adlo have been received in an endless stream by the federal radio commission. Although not generally known, the radio commission has no discretion whatever In such matters. Under the law it is specifically prohibited from censoring station programs, although It may consider all-around program merit in act- Ing upon the applications of stations for license renewal. Even now a case of this sort is pending before the commission., Station KFKB, at Milford, Kans., was cited for alleged use of obscene and indecent language in connection with programs of Dr; John R. Brinkley, who has a close affiliation with the station; Dr. Brlnkley was charged by the American Medical association, with improper solicitation of medical practice, and with erroneous claims that he performed goat-gland operations which resulted in physical rejuvenation. 31UII tu cfi**".*.^..*' *-• . . competition in business generally.
