CHICAGO, March 12. UP)--The Evening American, in a coprighted story, today asserted that Roe Ros- entwrg, democratic boss of Chicago's twenty-fourth ward, before his death last January, had made a statement to the United States government of how he split an enormous income with Chicago, Cook county and Illinois politicians. The statement, said to have been made at an income tax fraud hearing in Washington last Dec. 27, told of contributions of approximately 5500,000 to politicians and office holders, most o£ them democrats. Hud Huge Profits. His sole income. Rosenberg said in a sworn statement, was from the Rosenberg Iron and Metal corn- pan, a junk concern. Its whole business, he said, was with public utility corporations. The policy, he said, was to buy the junk from the utilities companies at an absurdly low price and sell it at a huge profit. One of the largest recipients of his dole, Rosenberg swore, was the late Mayor Anton J. Cerraak of Chicago. The total of the sums given Cermak was $95,000, he said.

Green, U. S. distriot attorney, refused to discuss the reported confession. To give out such information, he said, was against the law. However, he would not deny the high points of the confession. Attorney General Homer S. Cummings announced at Washington he would begin an inv«stiga*on to determine how the statement became oublic.

To Learn About Livestock Iowa farmers make most of their money by raising hogs, cattle, horses, sheep, and poultry. Nearly four-fifths of our agricultural income is obtained from livestock, including meat, milk, butter, and wool. This means that our big crops of grain are fed to stock and thus changed into more valuable products. Our cattle and hogs manufacture our raw materials of grain and forage into meat for human food. Of course the crops are important. If Iowa did not raise so much corn, oats, and hay, fewer horses, cattle and hogs could be fed. The livestock industry, therefore, depends on the fertility of our soil and the kind of crops we raise. In the history of Iowa agriculture, grain cultivation and stock raising have grown at about the same rate. The early settlers devoted much of their land to grain because they had to produce their own food each season. Several years were required to stock a. farm with cattle, hogs, or sheep. It was natural that livestock production should lag behind grain production in the early years Whereas Iowa ranked .eighteenth among the states in grain crops at the middle o: the last century, we were abou' twenty-fourth in livestock During the next 30 years, however, Iowa rose to second place in both grain and stock raising Before the railroads were built, the market for meat wool, butter, cheese, and egg. was mostly local. No one pro duced much more than li could use himself or sell to hi; neighbors. The earliest pion eers did their own butchering HISPERED Great Complexion Secret!

Though cal tie were herded on the ope: prairie before the land was sold for cultivation, Iowa wa not a great grazing counti\ like the plains west of the Mis souri river. Nevertheless, low has been second only to Texa in cattle production since 1880 Most of the cattle i ""-'jd i: this state are of the " kinc This type is profitab ;aus they get fat on grai. , corn and coarse forage which woul have less value for any othe purpose. Nearly three-fourth of the farms have herds to b fattened for meat, and thes cattle bring' about a seventh o the total income. Two-thirds them are raised as well as fa' tened on Iowa farms, whic' means that only a third ar principal breeds of lard hogs are the Poland China, Duroc- Jersey, Berkshire, Hampshire, and Chester White. They have broad backs, big hams, and short legs. A hog-production map of Iowa shows that corn and swine are raised together. The western and east central districts are the areas of largest production. Horses have always been IOWA LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION brought in from the western ranges for feeding. In the years before the Civil war nearly all of the cattle were of mixed blood, not very good for either beef or dairy purposes. Gradually, however, purebred stock was brought in and after most of the farms were fenced the herds improved. Shorthorns were the early favorites. During the eighties Herefords gained, and Pollec Angus were said to be very popular. Since then, other breeds, such as the Galloway, Devon, and Polled Durham, have been introduced. Growth in the cattle population of Iowa was very rapid in the half century from 1840 to 1890, either doubling or trebling every ten years. The increase of almost three million in the 20 years following 1870 was probably due to the big corn crops. The price of corn was low and freight was high, and so the farmers raised more cattle to eat up the corn. In the last 40 years, however, the number has remained about the same, ranging from three and a half to over five million. The peak was reached in 1907. Dairying developed later than beef cattle raising. No1 much progress was made unti purebred milk herds were established after 1880. More than half of the dairy cattle are Holsteins, but Jerseys, Guernseys, and Swiss are also popular. Some of the champion butter-producing cows have been raised in Iowa. The northeastern part of the state with its good pasture land is the leading dairy section. The first creamery (butter factory) in the United States was built at Manchester in 1870. Although Iowa has been prominent in cattle raising, hog production has always been more important. In most parts of the United States, cattle lead because poor land can be used for grazing, but in Iowa nearly all of the land can be used for more profitable crops than pasture. Corn is the ideal hog food. Naturally, therefore, the chief corn state is also first in swine. That distinction has been maintained since 1880. Though the swine population has varied in the last 30 years from less than seven to more than eleven million, almost a fifth of the hogs in the United States are on Iowa farms. Two-fifths of the agricultural income of this state is obtained from hogs. Most of the swine raised in Iowa are of the lard type, because that kind thrives best on corn. Where other feed is used bacon hogs are produced. The very important in the economics of Iowa. In pioneer times, land transportation was almost entirely horse powered. Moreover, farmers preferred to use the more capable horse in place of the slow ox for farm work. To steal a horse was to take one of the most valuable possessions of the pioneer. No wonder that was regarded as one of the worst crimes. Because speed was as desirable as strength, most of the horses of the earlier years were of the coach type. After the railroads assumed the burden of transportation, however, pure-blooded, heavy, draft horses were developed. Per- cherons, Shires, and Clydesdales were introduced in the seventies. Belgians came later. Iowa now raises more Belgian and Percheron horses than any other state. In fact Iowa has stood first in total horse production for the last 30 years. The number steadily increased until 1915, and since then has been declining. Extensive use of machinery no doubt created the need of horses for farm work. But since automobiles and motor power have developed, horse raising has begun to decline. Unlike the production of swine, horses, and cattle, sheep raising has never been very important in Iowa. The highest rank ever reached by this state was eleventh in 1870. Nevertheless, many farmers fatten lambs for market and others have fine wool flocks. The largest sheep producing area is in the southern portion of the state where the land is not good for corn, cattle, and hogs. While poultry can scarcely be classed as livestock, the chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys are too important to be omitted. Iowa has led the nation in poultry raising for a long time. Our hens lay so many eggs that everybody in the state would have to eat two every day to use up the supply. Cackle, cackle everywhere! Activity Hints. 1.

Phone 811 YELLANDTALKS ON ECONOMICS Favors Socialized Industry; Coach Lambert Speaks to Rotary. A discussion of problems arising out of the economic situation of ownership without control and control without ownership was presented by G. Curtis 'Yelland in a talk to the Rotary club Monday noon in Hotel Hanford. As an add| ed feature of the program, Ward j "Piggy" Lambert, Purdue university basketball coach, spoke briefly. Drawing on material he had selected from several books on economics and money, Mr. Yelland gave pointed remarks concerning various theories of economics. He concluded by stating he believed in the socializing of industry. Just how far that can go is uncertain and involves complexity, he added. In beginning, Mr. Yelland pointed out that a worker has work as long as someone can employ him at a. profit. Because of that, he was inclined to characterize the present situation as one of "disemploy- ment" rather than "unemployment." Possible Solutions Sketched. Solutions for solving unemployment he sketched as social support through doles, radical social and economic changes, less people to be provided for through pesilence, war and disease and the socializing of industry. Dealing with the eco- nomics of abundance, Mr. Yelland pointed out that there is more than enough in this country to provide luxuries for everyone. While stating that he did not believe in the form of "capital punishment which believes in 'soak the rich,' " Mr. Yelland asserted he believed industry did have a certain responsibility to society. If financiers can't operate the system successfully to provide work and means of livelihood, and the engineers are also unsuccessful, then it is up to society to control. Ignores Society Welfare. Ownership without control and control without ownership has resulted in practices which ignore the welfare of society. Coach Lambert, who is a brother-in-law of Supt. R. E. Irons, sketched some of the tactics of offensive and defensive play in basketball. He declared that students received valuable training in basketball, learning poise and self control. Basketball is more a mental than a physical struggle and players are taught to play at their full ability and not react unfavorably to their success or the success of others. Guests of the club were W. F. Ingraham, Cedric Willson of lola, Kans.. Bob Hamilton, Marvin Walters, Don Gilbert, "Chick" Sutherland and "Judge" Grimsley. Iowa Falls Student Initiated.
