Without actual mention of the farm strike, the administration is sfekini? to paint a picture of Tast programs for .farm relief -and at the same time Jg rushing into- effect long planned relief moves held up by various difficulties. New steps included: working on farm projects with him. 3. Announcement by Secretary Wallace that 80 per cent of American wheat growers have signed up to reduce their acreage, and will receiye as. a resuK 1102,000,000. 4. /Publication of further details of tfce corn crop loan profram with interest set at 4 per cent and renewed specifications that only farmers who promise to reduce 'corn and ho* production in 1934 will be eligible.

It had the combined eff-ct of reminding the farmer of what was being done for him, and offering money news of such tremendous interest that farm belt unrest was swept into secondary position in the news. Peek's address to farmers. Six new books wll be pui on display at the Ames public library on Saturday and remain ihere for a week, dining which they may b? examined and reserves may be placed on any two of them. This i.i the plan formerly followed at the library, which had to be discontinued last spring because of petty thievery. "First to Go Back" by Irina Skadatina continues her story begun In "World Can Fnd" and continued In "World Begins." In this volume the countess, now Mrs. Victor Blakeglee, revisits Russia with full permission of the Soviet corernnient. Her adventures are related with hunor and pathos, bat they do not contribute much 10 onr knowledge of affaire in the U. S. 8. R. A new biography which sheds an cntirtly different light on a well known character is "Quaker Militant, " a life of John Greenleaf Vvhitt!?r by Albert Mordell. It i* not generally kiicwn that Whittier in his younger days was a very attractive young man, and ' ither a Loro flirt or for some oth- < r reason unable to keep out of summary of all that had been done for them and all that was being done, followed by a few hourr announcement of the corn crop loan program, and the speech itself was the first news farmers had of the loan plan. Secretary Wallace appeared much disturbed by rumors that western packers planned to slash the price Of hogs 50 cents a hundred weight on November 5, when the hog processing tax becomes effective. "I have a job to do." he said. "That job is to get the same kind of a sign-up from corn and hog farmers as we have already obtained from the cotton farmers of the southeast. "We "upe it may not be necessary for us to have something of a show-down with the packers in November. I am hoping the outcome will be that within a short time all of us—packers and farmers ulike—will be pulling together to get the most money possible, with justice to the laboring man. into the hands of the people of the com and hog country." . • -'- - - ' ' -" - - - - - - 1 — T - ' PECORA REVEALS WIGGIN PROFITS (Continued from Page One.) ble and in 200 clipped words denounced Wiggins and his boom time banking methods.

Halliday Sutherland, like Axel Mi'nthe. is a physician who has had a varied career. He tells of it in "Arches of the Years." perhaps a little too consciously modeled a'tcr ..Tunthe's "Story of San Mich- p!e" but a very interesting book for its own sake. One of the finest novels of the fall is the recipient of the Stokes S20.000 prize. "No Second Spring" by Janet Beith. In it we find a fiercely Calvinistic young Scolch minister who does not understand his child-wife nor his children. When a-young artist comes to the community and begins to paint both the minister and his wife Jt seems that complications must ensue, hut the call of duty is stronger than the call or love and the wlfa remains with her husband. The story is preceded "by a prologue in which a group of present day young people are looking at 'lie MacGregor family portraits ;'ml wondering why the remarkable likeness of Haml&h Mac- Gn?gor's young wife is so differ- out from the others—and why it was never finished. The Wiggin revelations were the second shock sustained by Aldrich In the inquiry. Severely criticized details of-the bank's loans to Cuba were-'the other shocks to Aldrich as.

Tv'iggln will return to the witness chair next Tuesday when Pecora resumes Investigation of his personal profits. It was in 1932 that Aldrich, aided by powerful pressure of the Rockefeller stock interest, began to maneuver Wiggin out of the bank. Wiggin is out altogether now, altho he owns much stock. His ?100 ( OOU annual retirement pay was stopped this week when stock- houlei's rose in rebellious protest. They had not known of it until the penson was revealed by Pecora. Aldrich was not the only Chase bank official who heard the Wiggin stock profits with amazement. There are 200 officers-in the bank. They carried stock thru the market panic—many of them were in the hearing room to learn for the first time that Wiggin had accumulated great profits. The banker complained to Pecora that the $10,000,000 figure did not accurately reflect his profit and loss account. He said there were losses in other bank stock transactions Avhich would offset that profit but he was not able immediately to say by how much. That information did not appear, however, to soothe the 'eelings of Aldrich and other bank officials. Many of the latter bought lhase stock at high prices, borrow ed money to carry the investment and now are experiencing difficul- ies. PROGRAM READY FOR IA. TEACHERS Annual Convention in Dee.
