SOIL CRISIS SEEN BY ILL WILSON Wallace's Assistant Talks to Convention of State Farm Bureau. DES MOINES, Jan. 16. UP)--A warning that "an exploitive agriculture" is producing a soil crisis in this country was sounded here today by M. L. Wilson, assistant secretary of agriculture. He advocated farming readjustments which would conserve the soil in an address before the annual convention of the Iowa Farm Bureau federation. "The nation had seen the end of unlimited export markets," Wilson said. "This reason for prodigal use of its resources no longer exists." Must Not Follow. Declaring this county must not follow the path of northwestern China, Wilson advocated a policy of "plenty without waste" as a suitable farm program slogan. He said he was unable at this time to "state accurately and authoritatively the significance of the recent supreme court decision as it affects the future of national agricultural policies." Crediting the agricultural adjustment administration with having helped meet the 1933 emergency farm price situation, Wilson said it also showed "a definite trend towards meeting basic and fundamen tal problems of agriculture, which still remain without adequate solution perhaps even without adequate understanding." Cannot Ignore Crime. "This generation," he said, "cannot ignore the crime of perpetuating an exploitive agriculture which already is bringing to the front a physical crisis in land--land, which is the heritage of all of the people. "The physical crisis in our land is of long-range significance, of deep national concern to all groups, and is entitled to wider recognition now that the loss of the institution for supplying agricultural adjustment threatens to encourage again a more exploitive agriculture."

CHICAGO, Jan. 16. UF--The return of AAA processing taxes which five Chicago packing houses and one grain processor put-into escrow, while fighting the farm measure in court, was ordered today by Federal Judge John P. Barnes. Carl Perkins, special attorney for the treasury, said he was unable to estimate how much of the $55,000,000 On, deposit in Chicago was covered in today's ruling. Two of the so-called "big three" of the Chicago meat industry won refunds of their millions--Armour and company, and Thomas E. Wilson and company, the others were Oscar Mayer and company, P. Brennan and company, Miller and Hart and the B. A. Eckehart Milling company. The millions piled up, on deposit, after the packers won temporary injunctions some months ago restraining the government from collecting. An attempt to force the packers to disperse the money to farmers who produced the livestock was mad; in today's hearing but failed. For this purpose, an attorney representing E. E. Matteson, a Ladora, Iowa, farmer, and also representing Rice brothers, a Chicago commission house, asked permission to file an intervening petition requiring the packers to bring their books to court. Judge Upholds Verdict of 25 Years for Slaying of Father. WISE, Va., Jan. 16. (5")--Judge H. A. W. Skeen today denied a new trial to Edith Maxwell, 21 year old mountain school teacher under 25 year penitentiary sentence for the first degree murder of her father. "The judgment again of this court is that the verdict of the jury be carried out by the officers of the law,"" he said in resentencing the defendant who had asked a new trial on the grounds of newly discovered evidence. Miss Maxwell's face flushed, her head fell to the shoulder of her brother Earl who sat beside her and she put her handkerchief to her eyes. Reo! Estate Transfers Lake Shore Amusement Co., to C. J.
