The supreme court decided that the money spent by thfe state and counties in support of farm bureaus during the 15 years tbe statute has been on the Iowa books "was for the benefit of all agriculture in tbe county" and not specifically for the benefit of tbe farm bureau. It also decreed that the farm bu- j reau's method of certifying "subscriptions" of 200 members In the county to make a bureau eligible for j state aid -was legal. i Both these questions were brought before the court on an appeal from Crawford county district court in which Herman and Fritz Bume, brothers of Denison, Iowa, had sought to prevent payment by the county of the County Agent Paul Johnson's salary and sought return of {40,000 which the farm bureau had been given by the state in pre- Tious years. Judge Homer A. Fuller ruled July 12 tfcat the farm bureau's methods were legal and that tbe words "200 subscriptions" written into the Iowa law and tbe farm bureau's word "membership" were . synonymous. He also heM that money spent for the farm bureau had been for the benefit of all agriculture. The supreme court upheld both contentions and affirmed Judge Fuller's action in dismissing the Blume brothers suit. The legal action was an outgrowth of last spring's farm rebellion around Denison, which precipitated calling of the national guards. The Blume brothers were among those arrested. The supreme court also affirmed the conviction and five-year penitentiary sentence given D. A. Dobry of th» defunct Dobry Securities company in Scott county court The basis of the court's affirming (Continued on Pag« Proclamation the property of Am«* and of all itory county is directly d»p«ndtnt upon tht prosperity of the farm communlti** of th« county, and Whtrtat, tht prosperity of tho Iowa farmer is dlroetly dipondont upon the national market* for both corn and hog*, and ,Wh*r«u, ft bthoovM th« citizens of each city and town to become b*tt«r acquainted wHh the economic fore** that control thtlr prosperity, . • Thcrtforo, f, f.

Board Member To Be in Charge of Operations WASHINGTON <EE) — Preslden Roosevelt has decided, .the white house said Tuesday, that the flr« purchase of new gold will b« made Wednesday in his program to raise commodity prices and control dollar fluctuation. At the same time, It wa» learned at the treasury that the govern ment's practice of selling newly mined gold abroad for American producers would be abandoned. As the government plans to pa: above the world gold price, it was believed unnecessary for the treasury to sell gold abroad for American mines. By RICHARD L. GRIOUEY U. P. Financial Corr««pondtnt WASHINGTON (HE) — Plan* for the establishment of a board 'to dictate the value of American money and fix the price of, gold and commodities in world markets rapidly took form Tuesday. Under President Rooievelt's plan, the government not only wil continue to impound some.f3,750, 000,000 in gold now in ita hand but thru paying higher proces to domestic miners will seek to" ac quire all American gold hereafter mined- Previously, American mm ers have been permitted to sell their newly mined metal at the world price. ' In the future it is proposed tha the government thru, the Recon struction finance corporation: wil buy, at prices slightly above the world price level, all the gold pT fered; the effect would be to raise gold prices and indirectly raise commodity prices thru a cheapen ing of the..dollar. ..,• " Can Raise or Lower Dollar Thru sales and purchases of gold the government -could raise or low er the' purchasing power; of the dollar almost at will, independent of foreign influences such, as might develop, thru the manipulating for instance, of, speculators 'or of the billion-dollar British tfqualization fund thru.-which fluctuations in the pound are regulated. ; American gold would he kept at home and added to, the government's rapidly mounting stock. The dollar would ,;be, cheapened to the extent of the rise in the government fixed- gold price and commodity prices would be expected to rise in. direct proportion to the fall in the dollar if the administration should take this means, to raise prices. • Because a higher price would be offered for goIdVin this country, sale by the treasury of American newly mined gold under consignment to Europe likely would be discontinued- Will Appoint Committee President Roosevelt was "reported considering appointment of a money committee or-board to conduct' the government's gold operations. Such a hoard was expected to he 4 made up of representatives of the treasury and the Reconstruction Finance corporation.
