I was believed In most quarters Soong would be Induced to return to an executive post in the- govern ' ment. Some observers expressed be lief that the resigation would produce difficulties in connection with the $50,000,000 loan Soong obtained from, the Reconstruction Fi nance coVporation last Jane to pur chase surplus U.

Difficulties beset negotiations, however, so he threatened to sell the cotton tp Japanese mills. In addition to difficulties in disposing of the American cotton and wheat, Soong found himself besieged with requests from various branches of the government for a "slice" in the proceeds of the R. F. C. loan. Soong revealed these requests bad reached the staggering ttal of more than 160,000,000 of 110,000,000 more than the loan. This -was not the first time Soong has relinquished financial leadership of China's loosely-knit government He angrily resigned in 1931 because his government upent $45,000,000 to fight communism with armed forces.

Governor Herring and Governor Berry agreed that the bulwark of holiday demands—an embargo on all farm products such as that inaugurated for wheat in North Dakota—was hot the solution. Other proposals Included refinancing of farm indebtedness by the federal government at 1% per cent instead of 4^ and 5 per cent and the remonetization of TJ. S. currency on a silver basis. Farm organization leaders, who advanced the remonetization proposal, held, little hope the governors would approve it in view of President Roosevelt's recently announced policy of a managed currency. They took the position, however, that until farm products can be exported the nation will continue in a gutter of depression. They ar- •?ued that silver money would at once open foreign avenues for American farm products. Opposition to the farm strike, heartened by promises of governors and an emergency declaration by President Roosevelt and his farm administration to aid the farmers in returning to prosperity, grew thruout the midwest. Await Developments. Most farmers apparently preferred to await further developments on those promises. Only in two states—Iowa and Wisconsin—had the strike assumed any serious proportions. In Iowa picketing vir- oially had ceased. Milo Reno, who as president of the holiday association ordered fanners to withhold all farm products from market, resist eviction from their homes and boycott merchants until cost of production is reached, indicated picketing would cease while the governors are in session. He said, however, that jnle'ss immediate steps for relief are taken the strike will be continued with renewed vigor. Grains, milk, livestock and pro ;luce moved to market unimpeded in all states except Wisconsin, where one picket was slain and 12 injured as a result of clashes on highways. Highways in Iowa, where strikers first became active, were cleared by deputy sheriffs. The Wisconsin Cooperative Milk pool, claiming a membership of more than 16,000 dairy farmers, announced a strike to become effective at midnight Monday night. The Milwaukee Association of Producers announced It will oppose the strike order. Virtually all shipments of wheat from North Dakota had bee.n halted by an embargo placed two weeks a«o by (5ov.

There i« not a single municipal officer who does not go out of Ms way many times during the course of a year to perform fome special service for this newspaper by way \ of providing additional inform*-! tlon, bringing 10 light obscure de- '. tails and endeavoring to clarify for public knowledge the more com-1 plicated matters of public interests There are six distinct polnfi 'of i regular contact between tne news j reporter and various governmental; functions in the city hall. i To begin with, there are the; semi-monthly meetings of the city i council, which the reporter always' attends. Reports of each meeting alway* appear in detail in the'. Tribune-Times. Tata newspaper weks at all times to report completely and impartially matters arising before the council. There is the office of the city manager, probably the most Important point of dally contact for the news reporter. Her* is found the execution o: affair* «uthori*«d by t he council, and particularly all information of the engineering branches and the proprietary functions of the Ames city government. . City Manaatraiyl Cl\y, Clerk 1 City Manager John H. Ames epends many hours during each year in conference with the news reporter, explaining engineering projects and discussing for publication general affairs of the government such as fall within the range of the city manager's duties. Itisjo a large extent the willing- and car* with which Mr. Ames presents the** fubjtcts to the reporter that such complete reports of these matters are available to readers of the Tribune-Tinges. The office of the city clerk and auditor is another potent source of information and assistance for toe reporter. Dr. A. B. Maxwell, for more than 40 years Auies city clerk, IK a living encyclopedia of information on city affairs, especially financial matters. Hi» records are always open, and Dr. Maxwell is never too busy to »pend time aiding the reporter in locating details iq his archives. Polie* and F!r« RtporU The chief of police, W. J. Care, and the chief of the fire department, L. R. Morris, are men whom the reporter »ees many times every day. There Is virtually an hourly contact with the police and flre departments during the daytime, and only slightly less frequent contact at other times. Occurrences recorded in these departments are always news In the eyes of the newspaper reader, and the reporter who is alive to his Job it seldom out of touch with either. The Ames municipal court, which is the police court in this city, is another dally source of contact. Here again, the reporter is indebted to the generous assistance and splendid cooperation of both Judge J. Y. Luke and Clerk L. E. Thomas in the Interpretation and presentation to the public of all court matters. Common Ground of Service It is readily apparent that the new* it-porter at work under suih conditions and such atmosphere as PtOB HVB prevail here »oo n establishes many personal friendships thruout these various departments' of government. It is a great compliment to those with whom he workg that there nev-r, thru friendship, is laid In his path any obstacle to his performing his duty in the matter of fair, complete and Impartial reporting of governmental affairs and functions. There is never any effort to shield from public view any error, shortcoming or course of action that might not meet with public approval. There is no bond of politics existing between the Tribune-Times and the Ames city hall There is instead a relationship of fair dealing, and an appreciation of the common responsibility of public service. \V The 1934 fashion chart steers you directly to Ward's foi • lux- u r ion si v furred OATS A new elegance—reflected in deep-piled masses of fur, nestling luxu- Tiously against the face.
