TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 14 1933 FACTOR TO STAY FOR TOUHY TRIAL Extradition to England to . Be Held Up Until After Kidnap Case. WASHINGTON, Dec. 14. Ufl--The 'acting secretary o£ state, William Phillips, today Informed the British embassy that extradition papers for John ("Jake, the Barber") Factor, would be held up xmtil Factor has testified in the Touhy gang kidnaping: case in Chicago. Factor's extradition to Great Brittain to face charges of the alleged fraudulent sale of securities has already been granted by federal courts. He is the principal witness in the case against the Touhy gang, however and the delay was granted so that he might testify at tho trial. Under the extradition treaty the United States has the right to withhold issuance of extradition warrants for 60 days for cause. The British embassy was notified, as a matter of courtesy, that the warrants would be issued as soon as . Factor had testified at the trial. WALLACPSLAND IN CONTROL PLAN Work for Larger Yields to Continue in Harmony With Aims. GRIMES, Dec. 14. UP)--Secretary of. Agriculture Wallace's 435 acre farm will participate 'in the federal corn-hog production control program, but development of hybrid seed corn to obtain larger yields from smaller fields will continue as before. Increasing the acre yield is in harmony with the government's program to relieve agriculture, Business Manager Nelson Urban contended. In fact, he asserted, intensified ·production is the first of two premises on which Secretary Wallace based his theories for aid to the farmer. s Premises Are Listed. These premises are: 1. That by Increasing the yield an a;re, the coat a bushel may be reduced to the minimum, thereby increasing the margin of profit. 2. That by controlling the acreage .planted in view of extant surpluses .and demand, the market price may ; oe bolstered or maintained. Increasing the maximum yield of ,each acre of corn and controlling the number of acres planted to keep down surpluses will shorten the hours* of labor' necessary to obtain, the desired gross yield, Urban said. It also would enable the farmer to improve annually the unused land by planting soil building- crops. Would Increase Efficiency. "Because of declining market prices, the farmer has been devoting, an Increasing number of acres to corn to obtain the total income necessary to meet his expenses," Urban continued. "That meant long ftours of toil, unnecessary inefficiency. It was to avoid this that Henry Wallace began his study of acreage control to bring parity prices. "With a mounting surplus, it is iiecessary to curtail the total yield of corn for the nation by reducing acreage. However, efficient tilling 'of the reduced acreage is as necessary as before." Scientific improvement of the yield an acre, Urban contended, is as much a factor in controlling production as reducing the acreage. Refers to Statement. He referred to a statement by Secretary Wallace before the latter assumed the federal post: "The problem of civilization is to make it socially advantageous foi the Individual to produce the maximum. When we improve our cffi ciency and control it in,a balanced way, we can all of us have twice as high a standard of living as we now enjoy." Specifically complying with th corn-hog program, the Wallac farm, which is both an experimen tal laboratory and seed business will reduce its 212 acres planted t corn seed. The farm also w i l l c u t th number of prize Tamworth hog raised for sale. The farm average approximately 100 head of thes hogs the last two years. In furthering its hybrid com ex periments, however, the farm ma contract additional acres with othe farms. Tins year approximately 50 acres of seed corn were contracted The contracts of 1834 will be con fined to participants in the corn hog program, however.
