Preparations were going ahead, meanwhile, for the house proper to continue debate on the Democratic farm relie'f bill—winding up the general arguments in a three-hour course before the stage for amendments could be reached. Democratic leaders plan to consider the production loan bill immediately after final action is taken on the domestic allotment plan for fixing minimum prices on major farm crops. Chairman Jones of the agriculture committee appeared before the rules committee in behalf of extending the crop loan provision of the reconstruction act. Duplicate in Senate Now. A bill to accomplish the same end already has been approved by the senate. Total allotments to the agriculture department under the Reconstruction Corporation act." Jones testified, "amounted to $132,500,000. "Of this, the department advanced In production loans 64 million dollars and released back for use of the corporation in creating agricultural credit corporations $47,500,000. "On loans made in 1932 the department has collected 16 million dollars, of which 15 million dollars has been turned back to the corporation. "This leaves the production loan division of the department with 11 million dollars on hand. The .senate bill would make available only this 11 million dollars for 1933. The house bill provides ^lat the balance of the original 200 million dollars allotted to agriculture in the reconstruction act shall ' be turned over to the department for. In 1933.

"I do not believe, according to de- the full 103 million dollars will be needed, but the 11.million dollars in ,thc senate bill probably would prove inadequate." . As a condition to obtaining a production loan, the legislation would authorize^ the secretary of agriculture to require an acreage reduction Detroit, Jan. 9.

NO NEW TAXES THIS SESSION Rainey Also Comments on Demands of Governors For Highway Money Wa.shington, Jan. 9. (AP)—Asserting he did not believe either the proposed raise in income taxes or the sales levy could be enacted at this session. Representative Rainey of Illinois, the Democratic floor leader, today advocated strenuous efforts be made to. balance the federal budget through economies. In that connection, he made public a letter he addressed to 14 governors in which he opposed their demands for enactment I at this session of a 100 million federal highway aid bill and ask^d them ,to "tell us how we,are gjlng to get the money for it." • "There is tremendous opposition in congress to Increasing either the income taxes or levying the sales tax." Rainey told newspapermen. • "I personally believe we can balance the budget without resorting to taxation." The highway bill to which Rainey referred *as passed by the senate last spring and has been reported by the house roads committee. Himdreds of telegrims have been received from governors and state highway officials urging the measure. "We are going to stop it from coming up if we can," Rainey said. "It would make our budget balancing program more difficult." Rainey said he had received telegrams from foiuteen governors and had sent, them all the same letters in which he >ald: "May I call your attention to the fact that conditions now are unusual, that out* deficits are now 100 million a month in spite of the new land irritating! taxes now in force. little like a man about to be stricken with practically everything. Faschl's job isn't a pleasant one, and often It has proven dangerous. Always he is in disguise, and always he has a symptom, sometimes many symptoms. He buys a sample of the medicine prescribed, testifies to the method of treatment offered, and starts on another case. Recently he visited the office of a foreign-speaking "doctor." disguising himself as a factory laborer. In his best Bohemian, he listed an array of symptoms, and gave a foreign name. The "doctor" asked him to He on an cT ^amlnlng table. Then, dehber- ately, he drew from his surgical case a long, thin knife. He leaned over his patient. "Do you happen to know a fellow by the name of Otto Fischl?" he asked, quietly moving the knife closer to Fi^chl's chest. "No," said Fischl, his heart turning a handspring. k The "doctor" abruptly walked across the room and stood for sev- t^l minutes'beside a window. Suddenly he wheeled about. "Hey, Fischl!" he called. The trembling patient made no move. Finally the man strode to his side. You know what?" he said, grinning. "I thought for a minute you were Otto Fischl, the detective. And,, you know what? If you had answered my call I would have carved out your heart!" Fischl completed his case and left, in a hurry. Only once, during a long career, has he been exposed. That was,by a woman, to whom he went, dressed as a laborer, speaking a Slavic dialect. The woman answered him in Slavic, and made a thorough examination. She tapped his spine, listened to his heart, and asked him to cough. Then she told him to put on his coat and vest. In perfect Enijlish she said: "I'mi very soriy, Mr. Otto Fischl, but there's nothing wrong with you!" That was on'j case he lost. LANDONINAS GOVERNOROF STAT£ TODAY SIMPLE CEREMONIES kARK ^NAUGURA- TION AT TOPEKA BACK TO REPUBLICANS All Eleven Officials Sworn In Are Members of the Governor's Party • Topeka,, Jan. 9. (AP)—Pledged to a program calling for efficiency, drastic economy and reduction in expenses, Alfred M. Landon; accepted with "reverence and huniUity the great responsibility which ijhe people of Kansas have conferried upon me" at his Inauguration today as the twenty-sixth chief executive of the state. ; "It will be my purpose to put every effort into transmitting the will of our people through the state government of Kansas," said the 45- year -old oil producer In his Inaugural address at a simple ceremony attended by 3,500 legislators, officials, parly leaders and others who crowded into the city auditorium. ^ ' The new chief executive took over the guidance of the affairs of state from Governor Harry H. Woodring, a Democrat, who in his final appearance as governor wished his Republican successor, "full measure of 'success." , As Governor Landon concluded his addroBS, he turned to Chief Justice William A. Johnston of the Kansas supreme court, who administered the oath of office, as he has done at numerous other state inaugurations during his 48 years on the bench. Salute Fired on Time. National guardsmen stationed just retiring first lady of the state. Miss Lida Woodring, sister of the governor. A band from Independence, Governor Landon's honie town, paraded mto the auditorium to the tune "Hall, Hall, the Gang's All Here,',' just after the dignitaries were seated. After the call to order by Harry W. Colmery of Topeka, executive chairman of the inaugural committee, Frank Carlson, RepubUcan state chakmai^, took the gavel. Dean Ira Pratt: of Washburn college led the aludlence, in singing "America," after which the Rev. Frank H. Ebright. pastor of; the First Methodist Episcopal church at Independence, home of Governor Landon, uttered invocation. In a brief address, Carlson expressed the hope the new administration "will enter Into its duty with the wholehearted support of all Kansans." "With a united front," Chairmari Carlson said, "we can look confidently- forward to a new day—to a new era with the results passing on for the common benefit of the whole people." A Show of ConHdifnce. Chairman Carlson retailed that the Republican party "h: .s had the responsibility of state t'c.vemmeht for all but 12 of .the 72 years that have elapsed since statehood ; was bestowed upon us." "This remarkable' show of confidence," he added, "on the part of the people'of this state and as: a Republican I am proud-of the fact that the party iias never in any way betrayed that confidence." After Secretary pf State Ryan called the roll of officers, new and reelected, they'-were sworn in, one by one by Chief Justice Johnston. Wearing badges with the inscription ;"Alf's neighbors," 224 friends of Governor Landon came by special train from Independence to attend the ceremony. Another special train brought another large d'-legation from Kansas City.. Prior to the inaugural ceremony, the retiring governor and the new chief executive, along with other state officials, rode in automobiles from the capitol to the auditorium. The customary parade was 'dispensed with, at Governor Landon's requost for an economical ceremony, and the only escort was com'posed of two motorcycle policemen. FOR Li L?

(AP)— An apparently penniless wanderer, Thomas C. Jones, CHiariton, la., was found to have nearly $i000 foUow- Ing his death, the result of an im- successful attempt to board a freight train. ' Ames, Iowa, Jan. 9. (AP)—Corn belt fanners have for years thought of the Jerusalem artichoke, commonly known as the wild sunflower, merely as a persistent weed. But no\V the golden .glint of this plant is regarded in a different light, for agricultural workers in Iowa State college see in It the basis for producing levulose, a very sweet sugar. • On the roots of this giraffe-like plant are tubers—resembling small sweet potatoes—that store up the valuable sugar. Through the perfection here of a "semi-commercial" process levulose is now being marketed at one-sixth to one-twentieth of what it cost a year ago. Sharing honors of perfecting the new process are Professors John Buchanan. R. M. Hlxon, J. H. McGlumphy and J. W. Eichinger Jr. These, who for the last seven years have conducted research in the project, predict that if the process were enlarged and put on a commercial scale, the sugar perhaps coiild be produced at 20 cents a pound. Levulose, the scientists sayi is readily digested and Is more than one and one-half times sweeter than cane sugar. E. S. Haber of the vegetable crops section of the Iowa agricultural experiment station says: "To date, no commercial factories have been set up for the production of levulose sugar. I would npt advise growing the crop linless a market is established previous to the planting. It is adapted for growing over a wide margin of territory. It does well on all types of soils." Commercially the " sunflowers are cultivated in much the saime manner as potatoes, says the.horticul-' turLst. They are relatively immune to disease and pests. After maturing, in the fall, the rank stalk growth is first removed, then' the tubers are harvested with a modified potato digger. Tests at the Iowa experiment station show.that a yield of about 13 tons of tubers per acre can be obtained from the wild sunflower. Results based on the project shpw that a ton of tubers will produce about 130 ipounds of refined cellulose. By-products of the refining process, particularly the residue from the pressing operation, which is high In nitrogen content, have possibilities as a fertilizer. gTam! hVLar ;n=d the th^eme ^o ^ .t°^?,i°^^& of his message to the legislature,' ?r^-P/'^%^ ^° ^^^'f' ^l^^ Z"^' rnnvpnina in hin„n.oi .ocei ^if^.li 1N.
