APRIL 9 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE GAIN SHOWN IN STOCK PAYMENTS Farmers Given 30 Per Cent More in '34 Than '33, Declares Rath. WATERLOO, April 9.--An increase of approximately 30 per cent in the amount of money paid to American farmers for their livestock in the first three months of 1934, compared with January, February and March, 1933, was announced here by John W. Rath, chairman of the board of the Institute of American Meat Packers. "Whereas the packing industry paid approximately $206,000,000 for livestock in the first quarter of 1933, the figure for the corresponding period this year was about 5269,000,000," Mr. Rath said. He explained that figures for March this year are partly estimated. In Addition To AAA. This gain of $63,000,000, he said, is in addition to any benefits accruing to farmers who may be co-operating in the hog-com reduction program. "The packing industry paid $112,000,000 for its cattle and ?14,000,000 for its calves in January, February and March, 1934, as -compared with figures of $77,000,000 and $10,000,000 respectively, in the corresponding months last year," Mr. Rath stated. §42,000,000 in Taxes. "In the case of swine, the Insti- Urfe's studies show that packers paid farmers $112,000,000 for their hogs in the first three months this year, compared with $98,000,000 in the corresponding months of 1933. On hogs dressed in January, February and March, 1934, the packing industry incurred, in addition, processing taxes amounting to approximately ?42,000,000, most of which will be paid by the government to hog producers who co-operate in the corn-hog adjustment plan and the remainder used in ways intended to improve the hog market. "The figures paid for sheep grew from $22,000,000 in the first three months of 1933 to $31,000,000 this year." Mr. Rath's report indicated thai these increases could be explained hv the fact that the price per hun dredweight paid for livestock of al types was higher in 1934 than in 1933, as well as by the fact that farmers marketed greater numbers ON A WINTRY AFTERNOON mand hokum?

"I got to musing along this line a while ago and thought: "What would I think of a sales manager who would call me up and say 'I want you to get me a $20 salesman,' putting the whole empha sis on price instead of ability? i "About my first thought would be | a question of the inquirer's sanity. Yet it would be no more foolish than for you. to select articles of merchandise which you expect to serve you and to make the decision on a strictly price basis. "No sir, when I set out to buy something I take my employer complex right along with me. Supposing I'm going to buy an overcoat. "I say to myself. 'Mr. Overcoat, I'm interviewing you to see if you fill the qualifications for the job I have in mind. " 'I want you to be on the job steadily for 'the next several years. What are your lasting qualities? " 'I want you to protect me adequately from cold and rain and snow. Are you made of the kind of stuff that can do that job ? "'I want you to put up a good front and not misrepresent me to my friends. How about your style and appearance ? " 'What references can you give-I I'll consider the maker's name on your label and the reputation of the store that recommends you.' "Then last of all I'll consider what I payment is asked for these services. And if it is in line with the service to be performed, I'll pay it. I really think that when buying, one should be even more careful than when hiring. For if you get an unsatisfactory employe you can usually get rid of him without delay, while if you get an unsatisfactory overcoat i or radio or what not you may feel j that you have to stick with 'em long j after they've worn your patience ragged." tHU, M31,1».

But don't forget, it takes healthy nerves to drive a car, too. Trying to see your way in blinding fog or rain... skids... other drivers taking quick, unexpected turns--all are enough to give any man 'traffic jitters'! And yet driving never bothers me a bit. Smoke? I'll say I do. Morning, noon, and night. But I stick to Camels because then I know I can forget all about nerves. And Camels sure taste great!" \ v Ar e YOUR Williani T.

Healthy n c r v c j arc essential if a player is going to be successful in maintaining his speed, endurance, and thc psychology of victory. As a steady smoker, I find that cigarettes vary a lot in their effect upon thc nerves. I have tried all the other popular brands, but for years I have smoked Camels.
