Q, Roosevelt Meets Drought Farmers (Continued From rage One) to receive the. finding's of tho great plains drought committee. Facts, figures and recommendations calling for tho projection of a long-range drought prevention program through state nnd federal cooperation wero laid out before him. Inferrntlnlly, Mr. Roosevelt assured (he Daliolaiis thnl (hero was no Intention of the government (o move them (o other parts. He said: President's Statement "T had a hunch, and It was a right one, that when I got out hero I would find that you people had your chins up; that you are not looking forward to tho day when this country would bo depopulated, but that you and your children expect to remain here." "I have learned a great deal today and I am going to learn more In tho next few days. I get a picture which reassures mo as to tho future of tho so-called great plains'drought area—reassurance of tho fact that tho federal government can and must and will go ahead— not only the federal government but the state government rind tho local government—go ahead with winning out through a system of careful, long-range planning." Tho presidential special on which the Chief Executive has been holding his drought conferences, pulled out of Blsmark for Jamestown. Meanwhile, observers commented on tho Intimate approach to tho drought problem adopted by the President when he motored to the weather- beaten homos of two agriculturists about' 20 miles from Blsmark yesterday. Talks to Farmers He asked tho first farmer, J. J. Boehmo about his acreage, crops, water supply and cattle. Leaning from the tonneau of an open car, Mr. Roosevelt, his face streaked with dust from tho road, queried: "What about your crop prospects this year?" Tho red-faced Boehme, who referred to him as "President" Instead of tho customary "Mr. Roosevelt," replied In a strong German accent: "Everything burned up, I haven't harvested a thing." As ho answered the questions his four young children .stood about gazing awe-stricken at tho visitor. From Boehme's place, Mr. Roosevelt visited tho more loquacious Mike Helman, who received him In tho farm yard surrounded not only by his wife and children, but a collection of turkeys, chickens, two dogs and a calf. Busy Schedule Mr. Roosevelt's schedule calls for him to be In Pierre, S. D., tomorrow for another drought conference. He will spend Saturday night and part of Sunday In Rapid City, S. D. From Rapid City he will go to Salt Lake City, where on Tuesday he will attend funeral services for Secretary of War George Dern." After four hours there ho will move eastward to resume tho drought discussions. As tho result of ( the last-minute change in plans he now is expected to meet with Governor Landon and other state executives at Des Molnes September 3 Instead of September 1, as originally arranged. «• » Single Tax Ousted by High Tribunal (Continued From Page One) that the amendment If'adopted would cut heavily into school revenues. Two years ago the sponsors of the amendment failed to get sufficient signatures on their petitions to qualify tho plan. This year they obtained more signatures but their legality was questioned. A spokesman for tho Sales Tax Repeal Association, In commenting on the decision, said: "It was a victory for the forces of reaction represented by the real estate board and chambers of com merce backed by the State Board of Equalization." Will Keep Up Fight The association announced It would prepare a similar proposal for presentation to tho electorate two years hence. One attorney, arguing tho case against the amendment, said: "Tho single tax measure will throw a burden directly on tho lit tlo fellow, particularly on farmers owning land but little personal prop, erty. Hell have to pay on his acres of land while corporations owning huge buildings on small tracts of land will pay far less." Me said that most of tho persons who signed the petition for tho amendment "knew only that they were signing something to repeal the sales tax." Tho proposal would not only have repealed all sales taxes passed since January, 1033, but would have prohibited such taxes In tho future. DICTATORSHIP IS PLAN OF SPANISH RIGHTISTS (Oonllnuct Ft forces Into position to withstand tho onslaught. Rebel'* .Jubilant Jubilantly, the Burgos government announced restoration of communication with tho rest of tho world. Officials hero charged they hud beon cut off by France and England but hud re-entabll«he<l cable service by agreement with German communications agencies to accept messages from VIgo. Oilier Steps Other steps In tho program of General Mola and Commander-ln- Chief Francisco Franco Included: Suppression of the right to strike and "lockouts" by employers. Creation of a political council to act as adviser to tho military dictatorship. Annulment of tho Socialist government's extensive agrarian reforms (parceling of land among peasants). Restitution of nil confiscated property (churched, educational Institutions, factories and estates seized by the Madrid government. Suppression of loyalist Inbor organizations to bo replaced by Fascist bodies. Punishment Hlnmeil The Burgos Junta asserted It had decided to punish provinces refusing to join In tho revolt by "wiping them off tho map." If the revolution Is successful, tho ancient klndom of Navarro, which sent thousands of troops to •nm rage Onr) the rebel cause, would be given an out lot to the sea through Gulpuzcoa province on tho bay of Biscay. H Is there that relioln are battling for pofmesslon of Irun and Han Sebastian. Kpnil-autiinoinous Cain Ionia would disappear under robel plans anil bo- como a part of Arngun. Asturlns, whom hard-flghttntf miners canned the Fimclms much trouble, would bo split Into now administrative districts Possession of sonports by the Inland provinces siding with tho rebels would glvo them Increased tax revenue. Franco Aroused Tho Fasclsta junta sent a formal protest to tho French foreign office ngalnst "tho Inconceivable Immorality of sacking the Bank of Spain." Tho protest demanded that Franco refuse to receive gold RhlpmentH from the Madrid government. (Madrid has shipped gold In largo quantities to Franco since tho revolt broke out, presumably Intended for the purchase of arms and munitions If the French government could bo prevailed upon to permit their sale.) Tho first step In Hotting up an army dictatorship If they are BUC- cosoful In capturing Madrid, the Fascists said, will bo "cleansing" of all public offices and Immediate trial of all loyalist government leaders. Tho loyalist press will bo suppressed, they asserted, and then will como the plebiscite on tho monarchy. $719,046 Highway Work in Nine Counties Awarded (United rrcn Leased Wire) CACRAMENTO, Aug. 28. —Contracts totaling $719,046.20 highway Improvements In nine counties wero awarded today by Earl Leo Kelly, state director of public works.

The Japanese and Russian dele gates engaged In a sharp contro versy when tho former asked if I wero not a fact that Russians In eastern Russia alone exceeded the numerical strength of tho entire Japanese army. Both the Japanese and tho Soviets Insisted tho size of their armies re suited purely from defensive re quirements and that they both wort continuing to pursue peaceful poll cles and expected to continue to do so.
