NORTHERN IOWA GOULD BE MADE U.S. SUGAR BOWL VIoore Reports of Move Made by Greater Iowa , Commission. E. C. Moore, manager of the American Crystal Sugar company, ·eturned Wednesday evening from 3'cs Moines, where he attended a meeting of the Greater Iowa commission, o£ which he recently was made a 'member. One of the chief matters up for consideration at the meeting this veelc was the proposal of greatly ncreasing the acreage of sugar beets in North Iowa as a practical solution of the state farm crops )roblem. The proposal of the commission nore or less coincided with one of he pet dreams o£ the local sugar company manager, that of making rth Iowa and so'athern Minnesota the "sugar bowl" of the United Stales. Have Right Climate. 'We have the _proper climatic conditions, the soil and the crops to be used for rotation in producing sugar," Mr. Moore stated. "Besides, increase of sugar jroduction will add tremendously o employment." The commission, he said, is to make a further study of the situation and then submit plans to congress and the department of agriculture. Grower Penalized. 'The fact of the matter is that the sugar industry was discriminated against in'lowa last year," Mr. Moore stated. "The farmer growing beets was penalized. I think that will be remedied for another season. "If the growing of sugar beets in the United -Stales is to be increased, the North Iowa and southern Minnesota area is the proper place for it. In the irrigated countries they don't have the crops to rotate with it and diseases and HeJp Kidneys Clean Out Poisonous Acids Your Kitlncys contain 9 million tiny tubes or filters which may be endangered by neglect or drastic, irritntini! druss.

In . strip through this section, 300 miles east and west and 150 miles north and south, we could raise enough sugar to feed the United States. And we have the crops to rotate with it." Adopt Resolution. GREELEY, Colo., OT--The National Beet Growers association, representing producers of eight states, adopted a resolution Thursday providing the secretary oE agriculture be given the authority. lo determine an equitable division of proceeds between growers and processors. The resolution pledged the association to use its efforts to obtain legislation benefiting the industry with the quota system as a background. It also urged an equitable division between growers and refiners with due regard for labor, that federal grants to growers insure reasonable returns and that such legislation .be made retroactive to include the 193B crop. Auto Thief Given 10 Year Sentence DAVENPORT, (if)--George E. Long, 18, of Camanche, who confessed to stealing six automobiles here prior to the holidays, was sentenced to a 10 year indeterminate term in Anamosa Thursday. The youth who was arrested Dec. 23, pleaded guilty before Judge W. R. Maines in district court. He said he stole the cars to take his friends joy-riding.
