Help at the Price of Hanesty How far our government .it Washington lias drifted away from an appreciation of the needs and problems of the people it is supposed to serve is clearly shown by the rceeiil legislation for the relief of victims of the 1930 drouth uiul by the regulations under which the legislation is supposed to be made operative. The original $45,000,000 drouth relief measure, under' which federal loans were permitted for seed, fertili- ser, and feed for livestock, was at once recognized in this and other cotton growing sections of the drouth area, as of so Kttlc valua as to be virtually worthless. It took a long time fo convince Washington that seed and feed wouldn't solve the farm emergency unless some provision was made by which the farmers, as well as their .wovkstock, could get something to cat. Finally, however, un additional $20,000,000 appropriation was voted, with the assurance from Secretary of Agriculture Hyde that there was no reason why farmers couldn't 'uss some of the money to buy food for themselves or their, tenants. The secretary told the truth. There was nothing in the • law to prevent use of the money for food, but now the secretary's department has issued "its regulations governing this money,'-, and they specifically provide that ther.^O.OOO.OOO to be loaned directly by"iithe government • shall he used' fee;l. cows, pigs and chickens. The other $lQ,pOO,d.60 goes to ajjriciilturafecredit corpqjpftt&is, and there is still hope^that it riiay do : * the farmers some good, if the credit . it is,supposed to providj ever becomes available. . The government has made available loans adequate, with the strictest economy, to finance the production of a crop by a man operating not over 300 or 400 acres. But to obtain such loans farmers must promise not to use any of the money -for the purchase of food. In effect the government gives the people it is supposed to be helping a choice between perjury and starvation. Neither is pleasant, but the choice between the two is not difficult. Under the la\v a borrower of federal drouth relief money must make an accounting to the government, presenting receipted invoices for the supplies he has purchased. Merchants are already being asked to furnish foodstuff and invoice it as .seed or food for livestock. So far as we know all of these requests have been refused. But those refusals arc not going to be continued indefinitely. When a storekeeper's neighbor comes to him and tells him that an entry for hay or planting see:l on a delivery of meal and meat is nee:s.- sary if that neighbor's family is to have food, sooner or later that storekeeper is going to grant the request. Bureaucratic thick-headcdnci's has given us a drouth relief plan which offers help in a grave emergency at the price of honesty.

For example, under the' 1801 apportionment, Washington county constitutes a senatorial district "nutl has one scnnlcr. Tho 1030 cc-ivsus credits Washington -county Tilth 30,237 population. Under the existing apportionment, MIs- sirslppl, Poinsctt and Jackson counties constitute one district, v.llh one senator.

Imagine yourself setting out to do the morning's shopping under such couditions.You'c! drive down the street, looking in windows for the articles you needed —the blouses for Johnny, the half-dozen bath towels, the toilet soap, the ginger ale for tomorrow's picnic. You'd stop, ask questions, examine the towels, smell the soap, wonder if here was your money's worth or if you might find something better farther on. And though you followed this procedure mile after weary mile, you could never be sure. Computed simply in terms of gasoline and tires and shoe-leather, advertising saves you a startling sum every year. And if you add the value of your time, the amount is vastfy increased. When you buy a product that is advertised you know in advance what you will get, how much it costs and where you can obtain it. That is why, in millions of modern homes, the newspaper advertising columns are a daily guide to purchases. Read the advertisements, decide what you need, then buy with assurance. advertising save you time and money
