Farmers Hear Corn, Hog Talk With Fire in Adjoining Building SHERBTJRN, Minn., Feb. 1. U --It takes more than a good fire next door to overcome the interest Martin county farmers show in the federal government's corn-hog production control program. Gathered to listen to County Agent A. S. Karr explain the plan, the farmers were interrupted by a THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1934 fire which destroyed an adjoining cafe and pool hall. Some suggested the meeting adjourn, but one farmer shouted: "That fire can't get through'a brick wall. Let's go ahead. This corn and hog thing looks good to us." Not a farmer left until Karr finished his talk.. Arrest Suspect Only to Find Complainant Already Held in Jail CHICAGO, Feb. 1. UP)--Detectives Ray Ford and Simon Kennedy were puzzled. After they arrested Paul Rodesky on an old charge of operating a confidence game in which he alleg-edly defrauded Lillian Sampson, Evanston, out of 50,500, they decided they would look for Miss Sampson. And they found her, they said, to the county jail where she is held on a charge of Jewelry robbery. Not luiowing how she could prosecute from jail, they put Rodesky in a lockup while they think it over. French Socialists Launch Attack on. Premier Daladier ·PARIS, Feb. 1. im--Socialist bitterness against Edouard Daladier flared today into an open attack upon President Albert Lebruri for appointing him premier. The socialists charged in a statement that the president's "brutal and unexpected", action in naming M. Daladier led toward national union or the dissolution of parliament. The attack was unusual inasmuch as it generally is agreed that the president is outside party quarrels. With this new attack on the Daladier cabinet, it became known that no less 1 than 12 interpellations already had been prepared on the subject of its formation.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. U--A vivid description of hardships suffered by American diplomatic officers abroad because of the federal paycut and shrinkage of the dollar on foreign exchange was placed before the house by its appropriations committee. One suicide, a case of insanity, several nervous breakdowns, actual lack of money for food, threadbare clothes, children kept out of school and other deprivations were described by Wilbur Carr, assistant secretary of state, in urging a larger appropriation for his department. President Roosevelt dispatched a special request to congress three days ago for $7,500,000 to supplement the buying power of diplomatic officers pinched by the dollar decline abroad. Service Demoralized. "There has been, I would say, more suffering to the foreign service in the last six months than at any time in my knowledge," Carr said. He read letters from ambassadors and even clerks aa proof of threatened demoralization of the foreign service. "Things have now reached the stage," wrote the consul at Trieste, Italy, "where cream cannot longer be purchased for coffee, when eggs must be used sparingly, when cigar- ets (40'cents a package) must be purchased only on rare occasions, when threadbare clothes must suffice, and when any attempt to reciprocate social courtesies unavoidably received at the hands of local officials is remotely out of the question." Pays Out of Salary. From Ambassador Claude G. Bowers at Madrid came this protest: "I find that I am paying out of my salary, reduced 41, not 15 per cent, for the doorman of the chan- cellory and the night watchman. I am writing- the department that this is intolerable and that I shall expect the government to pay the salaries of necessary government office officials and attaches. "It is not my business to pay the salary of a necessary attache of the chancellory. Just how it came about, I do not know, but the fact remains that I am meeting the government's obligation out of my disastrously depleted pay. I cannot and will not continue to do so after the first of next month." ' The minister resident in Baghdad reported he had to take his children out of school and that "it Is now necessary to have all iny secretaries live-with- me in order that we may all thus be able to reduce our housekeeping expenses." Wife Will Do Washing-. An officer in England Sidn't complain primarily because "my wife is doing everything but the washing, and She will do that if necessary," but because some in his office "are wanting food and are having to do without proper nourishment." Carr said one officer in Egypt, after paying fixed obligations had only $13 a month left for everything else and had sent his wife back to the states at her father's expense. The official, Carr said, "has had to resort to preparing his own breakfast, taking a lunch to the office, and having one meal outside:" In the lower salary brackets, he related, clerks in Dresden, Germany now received from $42^50 to $68 'a month, resulting, after other necessary expenses were paid, in the equivalent of 55.80 being left for food.
