The Following Unsolicited Letter Was Received Recently by the Globe-Gazette THE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DOES THE JOB! The net-paid daily circulation of this newspaper is over 19,000--the largest in the world, so far as we know, for a city of 25,000 population or less! The agricultural department oi the University of Kentucky says the outlook for tobacco growers in that state has improved greatly since last year. When the first explorers came to the lower Mississippi river valley they found the aborigines skillfully Trowing maize, beans, potatoes, artichokes, squash, peanuts, tobacco and cabbage. WANT TO LOOK YOUNG? The secret of keeping young is to i'eel young--to do this you must watch your liver and bowels-there's no need of having a sallow complexion--dark rings under your eyes--pimples--a bilious look in your face--dull eyes with no sparkle. Your doctor will tell you 90 per cent of all sickness comes from inactive bowels and liver. Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician of Ohio, perfected a vegetable compound as a substitute for calomel to act on the liver and bowels which he gave to his patients for years. Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets are gentle in their action yet always effective. They help bring about that natural buoyancy which all should enjoy by toning up the liver and clearing the system of impurities. Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets are known by their olive color. 15c, 30c, 60c. 3 AREAS GIVEN MOST ATTENTION Land Experts Try to Solve Riddle of Using Sub- Marginal Land. (EDITOR'S NOTE: This IK the third «f a series on the pluns of the federal government to use land which IB to be bought !inI retired from agricultural production). By STEPHEN WcOOXOUGH. Associated Press Staff Writer. WASHINGTON, March 8 .--.T) Jovernrnent land experts trying to solve the riddle of putting sub-marginal farm land to practical use center their attention on three areas. They are the Appalachian and Pedmont Plateau from Maryland south and west into Mississippi, the cutover timber area bordering the great lakes, and the western edge of the Great Plains. However, in studying a representative sub-marginal county, instead of examining one of these admittedly poor areas, they went into a rich agricultural state* and bared some eye-opening facts: Of the 319,360 acres of land in the county studied, 228,480 acres are so badly eroded and the soil so poor that it is of little agricultural value. The population has declined from 15,620 in 1900 to 11.150 in 1930. Forests Arc Depicted. Forests have been depleted, game almost exterminated, many farms abandoned, tax units bankrupt, and SO per cent of the people have asked or received relief. Only 90,880 acres is regarded as productive farm land. This area, the land planning group declares, "presents all the reasons for a planned interference with the destructive wastage which has prevailed under individual exploitation of soil and natural resources. This county represents a splendid opportunity for rehabilitation of rural living conditions and the restoration and preservation of the natural resources." The planners propose to buy the entire 228,480 submarginal acres; persuade the farm families on it to move to four subsistence homesteads on the tract itself or to a small community where convenient churches and schools could be built; abandon the present farms, roads, churches, and schools; put the former farmers' at work restoring the area; establish a few small industries and guarantee the families higher returns than they have been making from farming. Sufficient Work There. Sufficient work could be provided in restoring the areas to keep many of the adult men working for many years, they maintain. In addition ripe timber now on the area could be utilized in meeting wood needs of the midwest. Game and fur animals could be produced in sufficient numbers to make the tract show a profit above the cost of restoration and caretak- ing. . The remaining 90,880 acres in the county would be continued as agricultural land with "a more balanced, independent agricultural development." The committee added that "recreation and eventual soil restoration, together with flood control elements constitute an overwhelming surplus of benefits to support the above program."
