SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 9 1934 BEGGING IS BEING DISCOURAGED BY TRANSIENT WORK State Officials Ask That Clients Be Sent to Intake Centers. Facilities for the care of all transient men, women and children have been provided at three centers in Iowa, Des Moihes,. Davenport and Sioux City. Free transportation of transients on railways, hitch-Wking, "oegging, mooching, panhandling, seeking charity' and relief except through the intake centers is being discouraged, according to the re' port of the Iowa service bureau for ' transients received by the Cerro Gordo county agency Friday. County workers have been requested to co-operate with public officials and railway agents in the suppression of the transient nuisance. Any transient refusing to accept transportation to an intake COMPLETE MAGNETO SERVICE Central Battery Electric Company center or to his legal residence will be denied further aid, according to the report. To Believe Counties. It is expected when transient activities are properly organized throughout the state that the counties will be relieved of this burden of transient care. When this time arrives the counties will be asked to deny aid to transients, directing them to transient intake centers, providing transportation where necessary, at the bureau's expense. The transient burea.u will assume responsibility for non-resident or transient families and individuals in Iowa with legal settlmont in another state, or without legal settlement in another state who have been in Iowa less than 12 months. Other tentative arrangements have also been made. The county or local family agency is expected to care for families who have legal settlement in Iowa outside the county in whicii the case originates. Care Provided. Any single, homeless transient or transient family will be housed, fed and given medical care according to the following regulations; single men, not more than 40 cents a day; single women, not more than 75 cents a day; family, not more tha - ; 40 cents an individual a day. Work of reasonable nature will be required of all ablebodied individuals, at least one hour for each day's care. Transportation of transients to intake centers will be arranged by the state office. It is desired to move all transients from counties to intake centers upon receipt of reports. The transportation will be provided as soon as the intake center is able to receive the client. Local citizens have been asked by the county workers to co-operate with the plan and send transients to the local Salvation Army.

By STEPHEN McDONOUGH WASHINGTON, March 9. UP)-One of the most violent objections raised against present government plans for buying farm land and using it for timber, game and fur production is that it will be removed :rom taxation and thus cut down the income of states and counties. The men behind the program reply, "most of this land is already tax delinquent and of no income value to states or counties. "It would be far better to buy it, eliminate the competition of its products with those of better acres, and relieve counties and states of the expense of feeding people on it and providing them with an expensive system of roads and schools," they continue. Studied as Example. A midwestem county which has been studied as an example of poor land in a rich area was found to have one consolidated school district, five school townships, 7 urban independent school districts, and 61 rural independent school districts taking care of 3,274 children at a total cost of $150,587 annually. It has several hundred miles of roads, much of them running through acreage considered sub- marginal. The roads must be maintained at county expense. In contrast a ready market exists for timber which can be grown on the area, according to president Roosevelt's wild life restoration committea. Likewise a tremendous demand exists among sportsmen for game birds and animals, which could be produced in abundance, and for fur-bearing animals. Could Be Supplsmsnted. Such income could be supple- mnted by the sale of products from wood-working shops and other small industries in subsistence communities. It has been estimated that an area of 3,000 such acres would produce $1,125 cash income the first year from game, fur, and timber; at the end of five years, $3,500 a year, and in 15 years, 55,000. Total inccme over a 30-year period was estimated at $117,225. The entire 228,480 acres would accommodate about 76 of the proposed 3,000 acre units. Establish Families. The probable return from the entire acreage is estimated at $8,909,100 for the 30 year period. Of this sum $4,977,200 would be spent in establishing families in subsistence homesteads, providing them with with schools, churches, and other f acilities. In addition $3,884,160 would be spent in wages, for trees and other plants to be sat out, and for building erosion control dams. Thus at the end of the 30 years the area is expected to show a net profit of about $47,640 above all costs. J. N. Darling, member of the restoration committee, emphasized that these figures were only tentative but added that they were indicative of the possible returns and were conservative estimates. Philippine Freedom Bill R e p o r t e d by Senate Committee WASHINGTON, March 9. (/PI-The Tydings-McDuffie Philippine independence bill was reported favorably today by the senate territories committee. The house committee already has taken similar action. The approval was given without a record vote.

Chairman Tydings (D., Md.l, sail! he would prepare his committee report immediately and hoped to get the bill passed by congress next week.

Creomulsion is powerful in the treatment of colds and coughs, yet it is absolutely harmless and is pleasant and easy to take.

Soliloquy by a young lady who had just a perfectly lovely time: Yes, darling, I must. I'm sorry I have to leave early but I really, really must. I had a grand time. (I suppose she thought we couldn't tell a "bargain counter" coffee by its taste. She wouldn't put tin-plated knives and forks on the table. But she would serve us a cheap coffee. Oh well.) Yes, I'll see you soon, darling. I want you and Harris to have supper with us soon. (When she comes to my house I'll serve her Hills Bros. Coffee and give her a real treat. Too bad she doesn't realize that even though you buy coffee by the pound you drink it by the cup. Hills Bros, always tastes better and is really less expensive in the long run because of more abundant flavor.) And I had just a perfectly lovely time. Cepjrifkl 19)3 Hilli Brm.
