FEBRUARY 12 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THIRTEEN IOWA'S FARMERS ARE TAKING LONG VIEW OF BENEFIT Interviews Reveal Corn-Hog Program Stabilization Is Important. By L. H. COMBS (Extension Editor, Iowa State college). DENISON (.V)--The Iowa farmer naturally is interested in the cash benefit payments which the corn-hog program will bring to him, but he also is looking further ahead than the first year's checks. Interviews with several farmers, a banker and county agents in this part of the state indicate that a majority of the farmers look on the benefit payment as a happy method of helping them through the period when they are reducing their production to an amount the public will consume with profit to \ the producer. \ Theo Rohwer, president of the \rmers' State bank at Schleswig o|h of here, said that he believes JV' than 50 per cent of the farm- £ in his community "are looking Wfuture benefits as much as they · 7?e anticipating the immediate System Is 1*raised. Mr. Rohwer praised the system of local leader organized by the state corn-hog committee and trained by 'state extension workers, state com- fieldmen and county agents. Jn the two townships about Schleswig- more than 90 per cn.nt of the farmers had signed last week. The success of the prograr-. here and in other counties, Mr. Rohwer said, is due largely to the unselfish work and time donated by the county and township leaders. "These members of township committees,' he said, "go at their jobs of helping fill out contracts just as painstakingly and as easily as we "My Mother Took It, Too" WELCOME "DADDY" BACK HOME KRESS FORMER HANCOCK WORKER )eputy Administrator for Rubber Was Employed in Drainage Project. GARNER, Feb. 12.--A. L. Kress, eputy NRA administrator for rub- er, was assistant to former County :ngineer \V. S. Bemis, Jr., during 915 and 1916.

"We had anticipated that the persons in our bank would be called upon to give considerable assistance in helping farmers fill out their contracts and in compiling their production figures. We were pleasantly surprised, however, to find that the township committees and the farmers handled these details themselves." Take Long Time View. Paul Johnson, county agent at Denison, representing the United States department of agriculture locally, meets large numbers of farm- erg and committeemen daily. He estimates that at least 70 per cent of the farmers in that county realize that the corn-hog program is not intended merely to bring cash to their pockets this year, but to stabilize agriculture and improve conditions in the future. "It is surprising and gratifying how farmers take the long-time view of this program," Mr. Johnson said. "Many township leaders think that while some of the details might be changed to advantage that fundamentally it is the only plan which will solve our problems of reducing the surplus." Further evidence that farmers are not seeking the benefit payments -alone is found in the fact that most farmers are not signing the "rider," asking early payment. In some townships all over this part of the state, however, the number signing riders runs as high as 50 per cent. Use of the rider attachment seems to depend largely on whether the first farmers get started to using it. Seeking Future Benefit. John E. Clausen, secretary of the Eureka township committee in Sac county, said that in his opinion 75 per cent of the men in his community were thinking just as much of the future benefits of the plan as they arc of the immediate payments. The future benefits, he yaid, will be in the form of payments all right but they will come as larger checks from produce buyers instead of benefit payments from the government. Kenneth Littlefield, speaking for Sac county as a whole, estimated that more than 50 per cent of the farmers recognize very definitely the long time values of the program. Want "No Chlselcrs." This same sentiment in varying degree has been found in a dozen The Great Emancipator FEBRUARY 12 I T is noteworthy that one of America's greatest heroes was not a spectacular figure in the same sense as Julius Caesar or Napoleon. Rather, Abraham Lincoln exemplified humanity--kindliness--restraint--and balanced judgment even under the most trying conditions. The Northwest Savings Bank is glad to add its tribute to the memory of this magnificent American who approached so closely to the highest ideal of what a great national leader should be.

In others, farmers are .vanting to know just what the government plans to do to control those vho are not under contract in ordei to keep them from Increasing and off setting part of the expected redaction. In Crawford county and severa other counties strong- sentiment fot some form of licensing or control is reported. The farmers who are backing the program with their signatures want no "chiselers" taking advantage of their reduction. These farmers, however, are not "borrowing trouble." They figure that Uncle Sam is planning to take care of this problem by some method as yet nol announced. AGED GOLDFIELD WOMAN BURIED Mrs. P. C. Rasmussen Livec in Vicinity More Than 50 Years.
