Tied in Nationally. "Prosperity for Iowa," he said, ."is not only- a normal selfish ambition for lowans, but it is'definitely tied up with national prosperity, "America Is Interested"In Iowa for three very definite reasons--first, as a dependable source of food supply; second, in. having this mammoth Investment of private funds properly protected;, third, In preserving the tremendous buying power of this state for American industry." Points Are Listed. . The lieutenant-governor's "10 points:" 1. Cattle. Iowa buys 750,000 feeding cattle each year to help consume our tremendous, corn--crop. Every one of these -cattle oan be profitably raised in Iowa, -By-seeding two million acres (approximately six average counties}- of- our least valuable land in blue grass this can be accomplished. 2. Horses and -mules. Replace the tractor with the horse. The former requires .cash' for fuel' while the horse and mule feeds on grain and hay of which .we. have a burden- rome surplus.. T.o. he. sure it requires more man power,, .but even that is desirable at a time, when many millions of our able-iodied men are out of e m p l o y m e n t . . . . . . . . . . Opposed to. Reclamation. · 3. Irrigation. Iowa should be definitely opposed . to any reclamation projects by Irrigation at federal expense. There Is no need for constructing irrigation projects to bring in unneeded land, when great states like Iowa are being asked to restrict its agricultural production. 4. Imports. Iowa's congressional influence should be directed toward obtaining an absolute embargo against whale oil, cocoanut and vegetable oils that compete with our lard and animal fats. 5. Hogs. No hog should be sold PARIS RIOTERS HALTED AT BRIDGE c THOMAS CLAIMS HIS JOB IS DONE Says Inflation Is on Way and Nation Is Headed Out of Its Difficulties.

Hundreds of factories are leaving the large cities for locations where cheaper real estate, low taxes and better living condi- tions for the workers prevail. Iowa's offer is attractive. 10. Banking.
