From his hospital bed, Recovery Administrator Hugh S. Johnson announced that a long projected "buy now" drive would begin next Monday. The time has arrived, Johnson said, for consumers to realize that higher prices will be the inevitable result and that in the face of this rising market their self-interest requires that they buy to the full extent of their prudent needs. "But while prices must rise in proportion to increased costs," Johnson said, "Manufacturers accused of skyrocketing prices v:ill be required to answer the charges in public hearings." Herevealed summonses were being prepared for certain manufacturers of overalls and other wearing apparel to answer complaints that they boosted price* from 100 to 200 per cent with the explanation that increased costs as a result of the cotton textile code, the first code approved, were responsible. Chairman Jesse Jones of the Reconstruction Finance corporation released a letter from President Roosevelt authorizing a new plan for bank stock purchases. It provides for banks to enlarge their capital by selling preferred stock to the R. F. C. at lower dividend and interest rates than heretofore. The increase in capital would provide more potential credit to finance operations of merchants and manufacturers. Mr. Roosevelt denied the administration was seeking direct control ovef b&katfflru stock purchases. He also said no one wants the banks to make unsound loans. For some time the R. F. C. has effered to buy preferred bank stocks bearing a 5 per cent dividend rate, or capital notes with (Continued on Page Two.)

Thousands of striking miners refused to return to the pits until complete compliance had been accorded their demands. They were mostly miners in "captive" mines (mines owned by steel mills that trke their entire output). The operators had agreed to all provisions of the code, but failed to put their agreement in writing jrith union oficials. The attitude ot miners was problematical. Some voted Saturday to end the strike, but the Fayette captive mines, including those of the H. C. Frick Coke company, were shut tight by picket lines.

Industry Is Goal WASHINGTON, ttJJPJ— Complete unionization of America's workers and an active opposition to monetary inflation were demanded by President William Green^ a vig- oroa- speech Monday at the opening session of the 53rd annual convention of the American Federation of Labor. Green said that "nothing is going to stop" American workers from rallying under the banner of the federation to take advantage ' o the "new deal." Regarding inflation,* Green said "We know that when the dollar is cheapened, commodity prices rise but wages remain the same In my judgement, labor will stand unflinching against inflation unti labor is assured that- it will get enough more cheap dollars to com pencate for the increased prices,' Green criticized the wage and hour provisions of some of tb^ma jor XR.A codes and said they would have to be revised toward a six hour day and five-day week and to include higher minimum wages. As benefits from the act, Green listed: 1. Two million, eight hundred thousand re-employed. 2. A 25 per cent increase in total buying power. • 3. Practical abolishment of child labor. Green said that success of the NIRA "requires the complete unionization of every American worker in every trade or calling, in every city and town." He said that it was necessary 'for labor to organ ize to protect itself against a non unioii minority just at it was important for employes to organize Just a Quiet Convention, That's What the Veterans Are Having against destructive competition frpm«» methods of unscrupulous minorities in -their industries. -,-• ,.

Chase, 510 Grand avenue, secretary of the Iowa Implement Dealers association, and his sister, Mrs. Roy Quaco, residing near Dixon, 111., suffered minor injuries when Mr. Chase's automobile skid- ed and overturned on a highway just west of De Kalb, 111., Saturday. Mr. Chase was on his way to Chicago on business. The automobile, a new car he had been driving only four weeks, was demolished and Mr. Chase obtained another new one in Chicago for the return journey to Ames, Sunday. Both Mr. Chase and his- sister were badly shaken up, and M/. Chase suffered severe bruises to his leg. The accident occurred in a light rain, on what Mr. Chase learned is reputed to be the worst stretch of pavement in Illinois. A milk truck which he had been following for more than a mile, suddenly slowed and turned into a farm yard, and in endeavoring to avoid crashing into it, he applied his brakes, which action threw' his car into a ditch where it overturned, according to his description of the accident. Several persons have been killed on this five-mile portion of the highway, and s.cores more injured, Mr. Chase said.

" His words trailed off in a thunderous boom from the streets below. Blank shotgun shells and toy cannon sent a deafening roar rattling up the canyon of buildings along LaSalle street. Mingled with blare and clatter were resonant shouts and cheers. It was just the "quiet boys of the Legion" on the eve of one of their conventions. - The official raised his voice.

Dressed in the colorful garb of their local pests, ranging froui the prison costumes of the Michigan City, Ind., men to the scarlet attire of a California unit, they jammed the avenue and overflowed to streets over the entire downtown section. Traffic was at a standstill despite the weary efforts of patrolmen. Six abreast one band of doughboys came down the street. "We're the guys that brot no wives, parley vdus," they chorused.

To the city whose streets were reminiscent of war-time with throngs of uniformed men ana marching military units, President Roosevelt speeded in the face ot conflicting advice. Several suggested the journey \r&s unnecessary, due to the apparent success ot American Legion leaders in rallying the veterans behind a program which differs little in general from that o£ the administration. It was also pointed out a considerable undercurrent of popular opinion had developed due to the partial recession in the fast-moving recovery plan.

Two armed men, alleged liquor runners, were captured on Main street Sunday afternoon by Ames police. Both were in the city jail Monday awaiting arraignment on charges of 'illegal possession and transportation of intoxicating liquor. The men gave their names as Lyle Wilson, 26, and Eddie Eckstein, 24, both of Boone. They were taken in custod - when stopped for investigation by^ Chief W. J. Care, and Patrolman John Behling and Owen Cox, A pint bottle of alleged alcohol was poured on the floor of the car as the police approached. Two loaded guns, one a 45- caiiber automatic and the other a 38-caliber German Lueger pistol, were found in the car, which was a new coupe, registered under the name of a man living in Spencer. The men also had $315 in cash. One of the pair is said to have admitted to Chief Cure that they were on their way to Des Moines to get a load of liquor. In the rear of the car, the officers found two heavy-duty coil springs which they believed were for use on the rear axle when :he car was carrying heavy loads ;o avoid suspicion by eliminating ;he sagging appearance which in the eariy, days of liquor running was the telltale mark of a loaded car.

Some sentiment for a legion demand^ for repeal of th« president's economy bill which accomplished this cut has been evidenced but leaders do not regard it seriously. A picked company of American Legipii men and city police provided a guard to escort the president from the railroad station to stdium.

WAR VETERANS AT II Strikes Boldly Against Special Class for U. S. Relief CHICAGO STADIUM* Chicago tUJB)— The non-combatant war veteran must his chances with other citizens in earning a living, President Roosevelt declared Monday in a, straight-from-the-shoulder speech carrying his economy fight before 30,000 members of the American Legion. Mr. Roosevelt spoke boldly in his crucial address before the Legion convention, which had potentialities either of winning the veterans wholeheartedly or arousing revolt against the president's drastic compensation cuts. He laid down three principles in dealing with the veterans and declared that his policy of financial retrenchment was imperative if the country is to thrive. His principles were: 1. Governmental responsibility for those who suffered injury or disease in service. 2. No special class of beneficiaries over and above all other citizens' 3. Federal aid for non-connected service disability cases but only when all other agencies fail. "The fact of.wearing a uniform does not mean that he. the veteran, can demand and receive from his government a benefit which no other citizen receives," the president declared. "It does not mean that because a person served in the defense of his" country, performing a basic obligation of citi- Zcns'ifn, he should receive a pension from his government because of a disability incurred after his sen-ice had terminated and, not connected with that service." Turning away from the direct problem of veterans relief and administration the president appealed for the support of the former service men,in the effort for national recovery, <• "The realization of bur national on Pajee Two.)

He was sentenced to a fine of $300 and costs and three months in jail, with an additional three months to be added in default of payment of the fine. However, after serving two months he was paroled to Sheriff J. R. Hattery during good behavior. On Sept. 23.
