MARCH 6 I 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIVE ROOSEVELT PLAN INCLUDES ACTUAL BUYING OF ACRES Vast Amount of Land Should Be Taken Permanently Out of Farming. EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the first of a series of stories explaining the land utilization plans of the government, one of the most vital problems of the Itoosevelt administration. By STEPHEN J. McDONOUGH WASHINGTON, March 6. OP)-The Roosevelt administration is expected to inaugurate in this first Demand the Genuine week of its second year the actual purchasing of acres in its program of land utilization. Men who have bcea studying the problem since long before Mr. itoosevelt became president now estimate that between 25,000,000 and 40,000,000 acres of land is definitely "sub-marginal." For the good of the individuals living on it and the nation as a whole, they feel this vast acreage should be retired from production permanently. "Coal Oil Johnny." L. C. Gray, land economist of the department of agriculture, likens the indiscriminate giving of lands by the federal government in past years to the spending of a "coal oil Johnny." As for the result, he says: "We find most of our timber resources swept away and our oil and gasoline being squandered in an incredible orgy of waste, hundreds of 'ghost' towns and villages, scores of millions of acres of good farm land ruined by erosion, 25,000,000 acres in abandoned farms, some of the nation's finest beauty spots and recreational resources subject to private exploitation, thousands ot farmers waging a hopeless battle on unfriendly soils or with inadequate acreage, an overexpanded farm plant, and millions crowded in congested centers of population." Such conditions cannot be allowed to continue, the Roosevelt group has decided. Public Works Funds. From public works administration funds they have been given $25,000,000 and other funds will be forthcoming as needed. The federal government, acting as the co-ordinating agency with states, cities, counties, and township governments, will buy up large tracts of land, move the people it to other areas, destroy roads, schools, and drainage ditches now largely useless, and build up an entirely new structure suited to the needs and welfare of the people. In answer to the cries of "communism," these men reply, in effect "If it's communism make tne most of it." Face Alternatives. "Faced with the alternatives of continuing the present wasteful, disorganized and aimless system existing on thousands of farms," they hold, "or building-a new structure of farm life which will guarantee Swan, Atlantic, to Run for Nomination as Attorney General DES MOINES, March 5.

Monumental difficulties stand in the way, they acknowledge. Chief of these is the natural reluctance of families to move from the soil on which they have lived, perhaps for generations. However, they believe the opportunity for a new start can be made attractive enough to overcome this inhibition. In Hugo Blocks. Land will be acquired in huge blocks, probably counties or portions of counties in the most distressed areas. It is then planned to convert it to numerous uses, including erosion control, which strikes at the very heart of the flood problem of such areas as the lower Mississippi, Colorado and Sacramento valleys; timber production; wild life refuges and sanctuaries; and national, state, and county parks for recreational purposes. (Note: The practical application of such a program will be discussed in the next article.)

Rather than say the boys' styles are mannish this spring it probably would be more in truth to say that men's styles are boyish. Whichever way you choose to phrase the analogy 'the .styles.for both men and boys reveal sport details in styling and rough fabrics as the outstanding textures. This applies of course to boys of school age as the little fellows' styles arc still made to appeal to mother's eye with "cuteness" as the factor to sway her selection. While boys' clothes will not be made up In the more costly of the men's fabrics such as shetlands and novelty weaves we will see tweeds, homespuns and the rougher cheviots much used in these junior suits. Yokes and Pleats Prevail. While the boys will follow the man-trend in fabrics it's the men who will ape the boys' styles in sport details. Boys' suits will show the men the way in the matter of sport backs, novelty pocket devices and sleeve ornamentations. Boys An Exhilarating Group ot CREPE DRESSES Frocks and Suits as zestful as this joyous new Spring season! Everyone a gay expression of the advance mode.

We will see a lot of hou'ndstooth effects, herring' bone treatments and overplalds. These are mainly shown in greys, tans and browns and the greys will cast on the grey-green and blue grey tones. Vestee Models llemaln. Where plain coats are worn, and these will be largely among the boys in the lower school grades, vestee suits are still popular. Here again we see a catering to the mother influence for she will not relinquish her right to choose clothes for the boy under eight years of age and women have been very firm admirers of these vestee outfits. There is a very material reason for this. When balmy spring days come along the mother is not quite reconciled to the lad going coatless and often compromises by permitting the vestee as the shelter from chill. These vestee suits are iade with either the plain or sport coats and the most of the vests are of the zipper arrangement. The Matter of Topcoats. Quite the swagger thing for the little lad is to wear a spring topcoat. And the well-dressed "prep" boy will not be without one. But the boy in between, the fellow from 8 to 16 years will have none of it so if the days are too chilly for just a suit as protection he dons his jerkin of lightweight leather, suede or corduroy. However, the boys that will wear topcoats, both juniors and "preps" are taking up the types of topcoats that their fathers or big brothers are wearing this spring. These are in polo, raglan and wrap-around styles and they are largely in tweeds or in soft fleece fabrics. Juveniles (8 years and under) will still be decked out in what is termed novelty models. These come in knitted fabrics or wash materials and the variety of models is wide and versatile. Straight Eton suits with straight knee-pants and worn with a detached Byronic collar also will have a substantial following.

Hampton to Name School Director and Treasurer HAMPTON, March 6.--An election of the independent school district of Hampton will be held at the courthouse Monday, March 12. A director will be elected for a term of three years to succeed Dr. Ed Scan- ticbury and a treasurer will be chos- ! en to succeed J. H. Boehmler for a term of two years !)5 Attond Reception.
