You are aware that many, in fact most, commodities have advanced in price in the last two years, but do you know that the parts used in repairing your "Caterpillar 11 tractor or your John Deere tractor and equipment are no higher in price than they were two years ago? That is a fact, and although our costs have gone up materially we are still maintaining the same price for our service that we did two years ago. Many of our men have gone to war-help is scarce-our shops are busy-and altho there is a slight delay at times in getting your work out you are assured of fair prices when you have your work done in our shops.

If you are in need of a new tractor see us—you may be able to get one.

Land Sale Method Proposed Continued From PBRC One order, has been operating through the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, with which be formerly was associated. Little brought the dispute into the open August 17 when he told the Senate war investigating committee that Clayton was following a policy advocated by the National Association of Real Estate Boards. Dt'iiniinces Boards lie denounced the boards as a "powerful lobby" and argued that RFC control would result In handling land sales through real estate brokers who would get rich on fat commissions. A similar view has been expressed by the Farmers Union. The Senate's solution was to stipulate that the interior department's general land office shall compile an inventory of all lands acquired by any government agency or corporation since December 31, 1939. As such lands become Rurplvis in the hands of the owning agency they shall be transferred to the interior department, which, acting jointly with the agriculture department, shall classify It as agriculture, grazing, forest, mineral, or otherwise. Agriculture lands, other than those disposed of under the homestead and other public land laws, would be transferred to the secretary of agriculture for subdivision whenever practicable into economic family-size units and sold Insofar as possible to persons who expect to cultivate it and operate it for a livelihood.

You have improvised your tactics, animated by the strong desire to win, and you have won." In his broadcast sspeech, General De Gaulle declared that even though Paris has been liberated and the Germans chased from much of France "We will not rest or be satisfied until we enter—as is only right —upon the enemy's own soil as conquerors."
