BOYTS Livestock Commissioner. SIOUX CITY, Jan. 29.--Many diseased cattle were removed from the herds of this territory during 1935, which has greatly improved the livestock business. There were ·1,989,924 cattle tested for tuberculosis in 11 months last year and 32,065 reactors slaughtered in Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming and Montana. In the same states there were 206,583 cattle tested for Bang's disease and 31.161 reactors killed in 15 months ending Oct. 1. 1935. Iowa. Wyoming and Montana were accredited in 1935. Nebraska is expected to be accredited April 1, and there are now 20 certified counties as practically free of tuberculosis in South Dakota. In the whole United States, there are 37 states and 92 per cent of all counties in the nation accredited. 15 Per Cent Reacting, About 15 per cent of the cattle are reacting- to the Bang's test.

At the Sioux City market in 1935 only 3.7 cattle, exclusive of reactors, were tuberculous out of. each 1,000 slaughtered, as compared with -IS tuberculous cattle in 1,000 killed in 1915. Condemned and sterilized carcasses for tuberculosis a 1,000 slaughtered hogs dropped from 11 in 1915 to two in 1935. Is On Decline.

The saving in human life and suffering is worth all that the eradication has cost the country." Educational activities for better poultry management have reduced avian tuberculosis in the immediate Sioux City territory as indicated by the lowered percentage of hogs retained for this disease. In the fiscal year 1935 only S.I per cent of all slaughtered hogs at Sioux City packing plants were found to have tuberculosis. At many other processing- plants in parts of the corn belt where less work was done to control avian tuberculosis, twice as many slaughtered hogs were tuber- culous. Losses Increasing, The losses from bruises, cripples and dead animals in shipping have been increasing the last years because of changing transportation methods, and the reduced number of livestock marketed by owners at one time.

This results in shipping- -more mixed loads of livestock. Surveys made during the year indicate .that direct losses from injuries to livestock are caused by inadequate partitions in mixed loads, overcrowding in trucks, slippery floors, protruding bolts, nails and broken boards in holding yards, poor loading chutes, trucks and railroad cars and rough handling- and unusual excitement in driving, sorting and loading animals. A program has been organized to inform all producers, handlers, transportation agencies and market interests of the losses from bruises, cripples and deads, and to encourage improved methods for reducing these losses which will be reflected in better | prices to producers. 0.

' 50 HEAD OF GOOD BREEDING EWES .VXD LAMBS Horse Sale Saturday, Feb. 1 BRING YOUR LIVESTOCK TO OUR SALE-HIGHEST PRICES ASSURED PHONESSIl CLEAR LAKE, IOWA SCHULTZ BRANDS DECISION ON AAA "UNREASONABLE" Economist at Iowa State College Talks to Grain Dealers Meeting. DES MOINES. Jan. 29. «)--Dr. T. W. Schultz, head of the Iowa State College Economics department, today branded the supreme court's decision returning impounded processing- taxes to the processors as "highly unreasonable" from an economic viewpoint. The 33 year old economist, speaking- before the Iowa Grain Dealers' association, labeled the tax decision as an "outright gift to the processors." He estimated the amount of the tax refund would run upwards o£ S300.000.000. " 'Blue Mondays' for the farmers," said Dr. Schultz. were the successive Mondays on which the supreme court handed down decisions which materially altered the outlook for agriculture. Sees Growing Kestiveness. He declared that "although the immediate income of farmers is not likely to be adversely affected by the decisions (invalidating AAA and returning impounded processing taxes), the certainty and calm of yesterday has given way to a. growing restiveness." He portrayed the processor as no more than a "tax collector" under the AAA, asserting: "Of necessity, processors widened their operating margins by the amount of the tax. The tax was borne by the producers and the consumers in the form of lower market prices of farm produce, or higher wholesale prices which affected consumers, or both. Frice IMurgin Increased. "In the case of hogs, official statistics show tha,t meat packers of Chicago definitely increased the price margin between live hogs and the wholesale price of pork by virtually the full amount of the lax, S2.25 a 100 pounds. "They collected the hog processing tax chiefly by paying less for hogs, and to a less extent by charging more for pork. The court has, in effect, therefore, granted an outright gift to the processors--a girt of gigantic proportions, accumulated from producers and consumers. The tax collector is being given the tax which he collected without being required to show that he in any way was damaged, or that he bore any of the incidence of the tax. "Highly Unreasonable." "From the economic viewpoint, the action of the court must be adjudged a$ being highly unreasonable, and no amount of legal sophistry can alter the inequity." Dr. Schultz reasserted that American agriculture is international in its market dependency, declaring "the greater the specialization involved, the bigger Ihe sphere of interdependency." He said the competitive nature or farming places is at a distinct, disadvantage, compared with industry, in its ability to command a fair share of the national dividend. "The market on which the farmers sell and buy is not. a freely competitive market," he said, and "accordingly, it is not a fair market." Picturing the rise of monopolistic and semi-monopolistic business enterprises, he said: One Alternative Open. "Thus one alternative is open to farmers and other producers who are essentially competitive in their production: That is to combine and create a reasonable market and distribution of income by group pressure and negotiations, with the central government acting as an 'impartial' referee. "Some such evolution is now in process. The central government is called upon to take much more responsibility for the economic state of the union. It must take cognizance of the increasing interdependence 1 of all economic activity. "It is essential for the federal government to engage to art increasing extent in guiding and regulating the economic affairs of the nation in order to maintain stability and a reasonable distribution of rewards for various productive activity."

ES COUNTERCLAIM Asks $2,000 in Suit Brought By Seigel Company of Waterloo. Presentation of evidence in the suit of the Seigel Auto Parts company of Waterloo against Isador Tamres continued Wednesday as Tamreg completed his testimony in his counterclaim for 52,000 against the Waterloo concern. David Seigel, owner of the plaintiff company, is suing for 51,0.11, alleging that amount to be due him as balance on account for automobile accessories bought from him by Tamres, proprietor of an automobile parts shop in Mason City. The counterclaim of the defendant is based upon an alleged agreement between the two parties to share the profits on an equal basis during the time when they were partners in the Seigel company. Seigel claims that this agreement stipulated that Tamres should receive only one-third the profits and that Tamres has received his proper share. Seigel, Tamres and Soigcl's bookkeeper have been the only witnesses called to testify. D. H. Fitzpatrick, Mason City, and Charles Beckler, Waterloo, represent Seigel.
