By M. A. LINDSAY Kern County Furm Advlur 'Demeitle Allotment Hev. T. F. R. Beale Will Cite Kellogg Pact in Seeking U. S. Citizenship (Associated Fret* Leaned Wire) ST. PAUt,, Feb. fl. — The KellogB- tirlaud peace pact looms as'the mo- rllum by which the Rev. T. F. Rut- ledsc Beale, St. Paul, hopes to obtain citizenship papers and escape swear- Ing to "bear arms In case of war." The pastor of the Peoples' Congrcga : 'tlonnl Church' will present his case before Judge M. M. Joyce in United States District Court here March 1. Contending at a previous hear• Ing that the Kellogg-Briand pact outlawed war and, therefore, superseded the United States Supreme Court ruling of May 26, 1931, that an applicant must take an oath to fight for this country If necessary, Mr. Btale refused to agre* to bear arms except as "per the pact of Paris." " The recent granting of citizenship nt. L,lma,. Ohio, to Professor John P. Klassen, despite his refusal to swear lie would bear arms If necessary, was H challenge to the same Supreme Court ruling, but was granted because of a refusal to violate religious principles. Frunk B. Kellogg, World Court •ludge and former secretary of state, In a letter to Mr. Beale, contradicted the contention of government counsel that the pact was only a "noble experiment" and not binding on the nation's citizens. Mr. KelloRg, however, refused to give his opinion on Its application to the present case. NEEDY SICK IN TEXAS AIDED BY TRUST FUND (United Prett Leaned Wire) TiAL/LAS, Texas, Feb. 9.—A little known beneficence of the late U. S. Senator Charles A. Culbertson results •'.ich year In reconstructed bodies of 35 to BO Texans unable to pay for medical or hospital care. Culbertson established a $25,000 m I rust fund In 1925, directing that semi" annual Interest of $700 be given Baylor Hospital, Dallas, "to help to life T Hfc! voluntary Domestic Allotment "Plan has had n lon^ and Varied history, and may have some considerable rond to travel even yet. No one, probably not even excepting tho author of the present bill before Con- fjrc^s, realizes that the Domestic Allotment plan started on its road back as far as 1021. Previous to this year, niuoh thought was given to the agricultural situation and its relationship to other Industries. The Emergency Tariff Act was signed In June W21. Apparently It was felt that during the early years of our present long decline of agricultural prices that a(l economic Ills could be eliminated from agriculture by the tariff, and we /ind in 1922 tho tariff .act going into effect. This tariff was intended to benefit agriculture and particularly was this true of the Emergency Tariff Act. Committee Aided The emergency tariff did aid such commodities as flaxseed, butter, wool, lemons, olives and a few other commodities from the farm that were not being exported. Such commodities as wheat, cotton, rice, tobacco and meat products, which make up a large portion of America's agriculture wtre benefitted but little, if any by the tariff rates that had been Imposed for their benefit, Import du ties can be of little effect upon com- mndlties which America export throughout the year, therefore th American tariff failed to Improve the- agricultural situation materially, who compared with tariffs on non-agricultural products which are not to any large degree exportable. First Measure Persistent demands from agricultural organizations and the rural population in general were constantly before Congress asking that something j I be done for the commodities of which | I the United States had an exportable surplus. The first measure designed to protect American agricultural | prices came In the McNary-Haugen | bill In January 1924. This bill provided for the long-argued prlnripln of the equalization fee and was apparently finally defeated in 1028. It provided for the purchasing of the exportable amounts of agricultural commodities such as wheat, pork ami tobacco, the same to be sold in the world market, thus causing tin- United States to be on a deficit basis for those commodities, thereby hoping to raise the price of American pro- .urallst, but the American peoplg renorally, and It would appear now .hnt the domestic allotment plan will be enacted sooner or later. The Domestic Allotment Plan provides principally for three major jobs. First, to establish a fund approximately In proportion to tho amount, consumed In this country, multiplied by tho existing tariff duties on those commodities (thus putting tho agricultural tariff In reverse). Second, tho odultable allocation and distribution of the established fund to the producer participating In the plan. .Third, .he^prevention of expansion of production and In fact a reduction of the supplies by reduced acreage. (Continued tomorrow) NAME CHANGES RECORDED IN 1932 BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 9.—Harold Author James thought the name Author wasn't quite strong enough, so he changed It to a real authorlsh cognomen, and blossomed forth as Milton James Van Dyke. Wade Snoddy liked alj but one letter of his. He 'only altered It to j Wiido Snlddy. "Andrevlllo sounds better than Tjevlne," mused George IjC- vlne, whose checks now are signed George Andrevlllo, Simply because Anthony P. Mont- balbauo disliked a long bulky surname ho became Anthony P, Monto. VJshnla was syrupy sounding and Sam Vlshnla traded It for brittle Kalskl. Those were the five name changes recorded In the ProViate Court here during 1932. They brought a revenue of $1 for each swap.

You'll never know how quicklj a stubborn couch can be conquered, until you try tnis famous recipe. It is used in more homes than, any other cough remedy, because it gives more prompt, positive relief. It's no trouble at all to mix and costs but a trifle. Into a pint bottle, pour 2% ouncea of Plnei; then add granulated sugar syrup to make a full pint. Syrup ia easily made with 2 cups of sugar and one cup of water, stirred a few moments until dissolved. No cooking needed. This saves two-thirds of tho money usually spent for cough medicine, and gives you a purer, better remedy. It never spoils, and tastes fine. Instantly you feel its penetrating effect. It loosens the germ-laden phlegm, clears the air passages, and soothes and heals the inflamed membranes. This three-fold action explains why it brings such quick relief in severe coughs. Pinex is a. highly concentrated compound of Norway Pine, used for generations for its healing effect on throat membranes. It is guaranteed to give prompt relief or money refunded.

Int.—Adv. zatlon fee plan was going to fail to pass Congress, another plan was ; I evolved which has been called the ; export debenture plan, which was np- i parently also defeated in May, 1928. , The export debenture plan proposed j similar methods to those of the equal- I Izatlon fees, the principle being that ' of raising farm price behind a tariff | wall. This plan, like previous others, apparently did not provide for n definite enough method for the control of the surplus. Marketing Act Passed Following the failure of the dehen- I ture plan the discussion In halls of | iongress swung to some phase or ^ plan that would aid co-operative mar- ! •cetlng and finally In June, 1929, the ' agricultural marketing act was passed | establishing a revolving fund of J&OO,- | 300,000. This act provided for loans j to co-operation associations as well as j providing power for entering Into : jrlce stabilization operations or the | juying of surplus quantities of certain agricultural commodities. i The force of depression has appar- - ently proved to be infinitely more, powerful than the aprr'cultural mar- j «eting act stabilization operations, as prices have continued to decline on all commodities'. We now find that the problem of tho stabilization of farm prices has been under discussion for a period of j some ten years and apparently the i solution of the problem has not as yet j been reached, unless the proposed voluntary domestic allotment plan Is successful. , The Plan It apparently is not known at this time whether the domestic allotment plan will be acted upon by the present Congress or not. It Is believed, however, my many, that It will become an Act, under the Incoming administration. The reason for this belief by many is due to the statements made by President-elect Roosevelt at Topeka, Kan., during his campaign. During the past several years. Industry apparently was not particularly concerned with the restoration of agriculture due to the feeling that agriculture would soon restore Itself. The failure, however, of agriculture to be restored to its normal position has interested not only the agrlcul- of Crosley's Newest Radio SENSATION JUST ARRIVED Only the Unlimited Production Facilities and Engineering Skill of the Crosley Factory Could Make Possible This Unbeatable Value ]_" Plays Police" £—5-Tube Balanced 3—Super-Heterodyne 4—Illuminated Dial 5—No Squeals 6—Super Selectivity 7—Full Dynamic Speaker 8—Unbelievable Power 9—Beautiful Walnut Cabinet 10—Latest Tubes A "5" AT THE PRICE OF A Sac and Hear Thi.
