MONDAY, MARCH 0/1931 BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS B&SURB \MQUiREj R (Continued trom page one) although balked In its attempt to «Uzc tliat great, government property at Muscle Shoals, has Mocked our bill which would retain it for the people nncl S lve lhcra thc benc ' fit, ol it through cheap electricity rates a:id chca plertilizer for the farmers. God gave natural resources to llic people; He did not mean them for the Power Trust. _ Although tiie Power Trust has won a grcal victory through Us influence with "1C administration, that victory represents only the latest phase of a long, hard fight. The Muscle Shoals bill will l« promptly introduced again at the next Congress and it will again be passed by Congress. It Is the sens? of this progressive conference that we should be able to pass it over ilu veto of thc president by a two- thirds vote In both houses of Congress. Farm Relief Problem Nowhere has the blighting effect ot the administration's indifference and failure to act been more obvious than on our milhoiis of farms. Turning down' the demand of t.h?. great* west for the ?,lcN'ary-Hau'gcn snd export debenture measures, thc administration was willing to agree to the creation of a Federal Farm Board. That board has been given lialf a billion dollars and it is up to its neck m the wheat, business and the cotton business. Prices of agricultural products have declined lo the lowest points in recent history and thc hope that the administration's scheme might be of some conceivable aid to agriculture has proved an empty dream. M c a n v; h ile, an unprecedented drought has struck many portions of our agricultural regions, rendering thc plight ol hundreds of thousands of farmers more desperate than ever and falling to obtain anything but t!-.c most grudging concessions for relief from the administration. The progressives consistently have fought for an adequate system o! farm relief as well as for sympathetic federal aid on the arms and in the cities during periods of great, human suffering. They will continue lo wage this fight. Tariff and Unemployment The high rates of the Grundy tariff bill have had all the dire effects which were predicted durin: the debate on the Hav/iey-Smoo till. Retaliation by foreign coun tries was Immediate and factovie have clcsed and unemployment in creased as our exports have slump cd because of our own folly Thes? results were al! predicted by the na- tion's' leading economists. Thc progressives demand a scientific tariff policy and scientific reduction of tile rates which are destroying our prosperity, with first attention given to these rates •which make this country pay. tribute on products under monopolistic control. "Representative Government" Hy "return to representative government" we mean going back to government truly representative of the people. All too often thc people elect n man and thc big interests get hold of him. That has always been true and it is true now, but it is another situation which can Ire met, largely by action of an informed electorate. We in Congress, meanwhile, can devote ourselves to attacking legislative control by special intarestt and executive encroachments on behalf of those sams interests. The prcgressive insistence that the Lame Duck amendment set no limit on duration of ths second session of Congress can best be understood by a glance at the past session.

Right now you cnn do two things to help.They are your opportunity—for to do them is to help friends, neighbors, fellow citizens. They are your privilege--for to do them is to create added insurance for keeping your own job. Your Duty as a Citizen Help your local government to hasten useful public -works, to speed up appropriations, to cut red tape. Attend all community meetings for creating employment. Assure your local officials that yon are behind thcui iu all efforts to provide employment through organized activity. Subscribe if you can, to local relief for unemployed. THIS IS SOUND CITIZENSHIP. 1'our Opportunity as an Individual Give all the employment you can. If you have the money— start jobs of house-painting, carpentry, repairs, additions to your; property. There are many things to be done, and uow is a good time to do them, as you are buying material at very favorable prices. THIS IS SOUND INVESTMENT OF YOUR MONEY—AND SOUND PATRIOTISM. a Neighbor to \ EP.K are 100 jobs. Not all nrc iirac- ticnl al this time.
