"BUY BOTTI* Of AJCXS AMCS DAILY T1I1UNB TIMM. AMIS. IOWA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 1933 FAOirr?» EXPERT SAYS DES MOINES <UJ»J—The United •States already it on the way to prosperity and does not need the fxtra Impetus of Inflation, J. H. Tregoe, former executive secretary of the national association of credit men helieres. Tregoe was speaker here Tuesday night at the annual meeting of the Dee Molnes credit bureau. Prices are Influenced more by turnover than by the amount of currency In the country, Trego* asserted. Inflation would do the farmer no good, he declared, because the entire price schedule would advance leaving farm prices relatively in the same position they now are. Tregoe attacked recent attempts to influence the national administration toward Inflation as the work of statesmen "well-trained in politics out lacking in financial knowledge." Depression Just a News Story in Hawaii, Paradise of Pacific Bj DAN CAMPBELL Unittd Preis Staff Comfpondwrt HONOLULU, T. H. (U.P.)—For a sum considerably less than next winter's coal bill you can sail to a "Paradiw" where the nearest approach to a bread line is the morning trek to the breadfruit tree. No fuming over red Avoolcns, for there is no snow, except on the mountain peaks; no worry over doctor billjs, for the climate varies little and seasons come and go unmarked; no brawls \yith the janitor, for the houses need no heat in winter nor cooling systems in summer. Separated from the outside world by vast stretches of the Pacific, which isolated the islands from the mainland misery, nurtured by unceasing sunshine, cooling trade winds and abundant rainfall, fortunate in the comparatively simple tastes of its people, the depression is hearsay in Hawaii. A Little '•'rouble Next Grand Sire Of Odd Fellows Many Scientists Risk Their Lives for Work's Sak« DES MOINES <UJPJ— The history of medicine is dotted with incidents of bravery such as exhibited by St. Louis scientists in allowing themselves to be bitten by encephalitis laden mosquitoes, Dr. Carl F. Jordan of the Iowa department of health asserts. "AKho scientists are able to determine possible human results fairly accurately by experimentation with guinea pigs, monkeys and rabbits, there often can be no certainty until someone risks his 01 her own life," tlie doctor said. Other diseases in which men have risked death for experimental purposes are yellow fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and diabetes. Butterflies Worried Farmers WILLIAMS, Cal. CR*—Butterflies may have their points as ornamental assets to pastorial scenery—but farmers hereabouts have different ideas. They have gone into a huddle trying to figure' out how ic "ihoo" an unprecedented army of butter flies from their fields. Tbc- insects arc severely Uamazing alfalfa crops. True, the local legislature has fussed over a so-called unemployment "problem," sugar barons have grunted a bit over the price of sugar, pineapple producers found the returns from their product a bit sour, but there was no human suffering • here during the "years of famine." The very peak of the unemployment problem found approximately 5,000 men out of work in the early part of 1933, and this during a normal seasonal period of unemployment in the sugar and pineapple industry. The figure now Is less than half that and steadily decreasing. Numerous factors have contributed: Climate, productive soil, simple tastes, the great payrolls of the army and navy, a government quick to respond to any threat against its people, and the innate charity of the people themselves. a,000 Miles From California ^ Some 2 000 miles southwest of San Francisco, anchored in the lazy Pacific surf just within the j tropic belt and on a line with Hai vana, this chain of 20 islands, nine inhabited, rear themselves peacefully in a worried world. Viewed from any angle. Hawaii bas taken care of its people. Even plantation life, the lowest mode of, living, supplies laborers aud their families with luxuries never found in the coal and iron regions of the eastern United States Announcement!

At a casual glance Honolulu is a reflection of any well-planned American city, cash registers jingle in five-and-tens. but Oriental merchants still click the abacus; great white liners cross the coral reef to the harbor, but around them swarm sampans and outrigger canoes; dainty Japanese and Chinese school girls wear imitation Parte models, but the former shed them for multi-colored kimonas and the latter for mandarin coats at home. In the streets the clump of wooden shoes and,the flwish of felt and straw slippers mingle with the patter of leather foot gear; airplanes skim from one island to another, street car bells* jangle in the streets, the whistle of Oahu's railway disturbs the somnolent cane fields—but plodding down a road or thru the narrow streets of Chinatown a merchant hauls his wares on two- wheeled carts or carries them in pots and baskets at the cod of a bamboo pole. DES MOLNES (HE)—What was believed to be the largest farm foreclosure suit-ever filed in Iowa was heard Wednesday in federal district court here. . The Equitable Life Assurance society seeks to foreclose 313 mortgages against 165 farms owned by the Collins Mortgage company. Estimated value' of the property involved is ?4,000,000.

Thompson, insurance company worker, testified that the farms had been allowed to run down under management of the mortgage company and that many noxious weeds had taken root on the' land. Associated defendants in the suit are the Collins Farm company and two Cedar Rapids banks.

PAYROLL INCREASED MILLION KANSAS CITY, Mo., (UJBJ—-Re- turns from the NRA canvas* indicated Kansas City payrolls will be increased almost a million dollars by Oct. 1, with more than 8,000 persons given work since the recovery program was inaugurated. I MOTHER BLOOR TALKS TO 250 HERE TUESDAY •'C.»i:'icu«d rrom Pags One) brot the beginning of fascism, with a handful of men telling a whole nation to destroy its crops, the fruit of its labors. Workers are put ojf from day to day with lying promises, farmers continue to lose their homes to the big bankers. The NRA cannot succeed. -Mrs. Bloor points out, because it is drawn up in the interest of the few men who really rule the country and not in the Interest of the people. It is plain, said Mrs. Bloor, that if goods were distributed properly, there would be no overproduction. We could hardly produce enough. For that reason, it is stupidity to talk of doing away with machines. The machines . are not wrong. What is wrong is that the machines too are being exploited for the fabulous profit of a few, not for the people who make and use them. The, tremendous opposition to the solidarity of the workers had the best trial of its strength during the World war, when every opinion-foi'uuug agency, press aud church and school, was utilized to rouse the workers of this country to slaughter tfceir fellow workers in Germany.—for one purpose, the profit of the ste*l and ammunl tion and shipping aid mining trusts. But that perversion of opinion did not end with the war. Today th« church, the school, the movies the press still serve to divide the workers. Thus the exploiters foment race, national and color prejudices to further tnelr own ends. Thus Mrs. Bloor propounded passionately, fervidly, in the language of the worker, the gospel of the resurrection of the worker Into his rightful heritage. Now 71, this small, sharp-eyed forceful person dashes from one field of battle to another in the ever-spreading -workers' front. The day before in Nebraska, last week in Des Moines, today in Mason City, she goes on preaching, teach! ing, calling workers and farmers j everywhere to united action. Bej fore the hat went round Tuesday i night she had 11 cents. A .collec- j tion of $7.50 was taken up. "That ; ' isn't simply all J have with me. ' It's all I have in the world. I some- I times wonder why it doesn't scare ! me." For 40 years her life has been poured out in the one cause, the j workers* cause. Today it is flowing strong as ever. At 63 and at 65 she was hltchiking cl«ar across the country. "I gtlll carry my boots in case I need to hikt." $6,000 Home — for — $4,500 On Grand Avenue. 5 rooms and solarium. Everything first class.
