B HAUGEN MASTER OF FARM BILLS (Continued From Vase 1). years old when he got here and "Tama Jim" Wilson, another lowan, was head of it, Anything that has the least thing to do with agriculture, in Representative Haugen's generation in politics, he has been prominently identified with. The first matter he attended to, after being sworn in, was the arrangement of a place for himself on the house of representatives' committee on agriculture. It is difficult to think of him now as ever .having been a junior member of that committee; he has beeu its chairman since the memory of 'man runneth scarcely to the contrary. V ' * * '» Y GOOD rights, the white-haired old f a r m e ^merchant-banker from the fourth Hawkeye district, ought to be a perfect encyclopedia of information concerning, everything that has happened on Capitol hill since the 5 6 t h congress met in'1899. But try and : get him to disc u s s anything except ~ agricul- t u r e ? - ^ h e recalls every bill and resolution introduced for the farmer's benefit or Inimical to his interest, every speech, every debate, every significantly agricultural remark uttered from the day he responded to his initial roll call until Speaker Longworth announced the last adjournment. Otherwise Representative Haugen might as well have stayed in Northwood, for all he remembers of what has transpired in Washington in the score and a half (plus two) of years that he-has been fighting agriculture's congressional battles. * * * H E WAS HERE, of co.ursefduring the hectic World war period.

Brown upper, black sport trimming; non-skid outsole. "Which, profitable as it temporarily was to the farmers, has been followed," observes the lowan, "by an era of deflation more disastrous to them than to any other class of the American people." What's the remedy for unemployment? "Agricultural prosperity," answers the congressman, promptly. "No nation can thrive with its basic industry prostrate." How about the power question? "Power's application to farm uses," says the Hawkeye legislator, "undoubtedly has altered the agricultural problem in important particulars." Our foreign policy? "We must recognize American agriculture's need of export markets," rejoins the representative, "to absorb our crop surplusage." * * ._ * - TTERY WELL, THEN; dismissing V all other considerations, Is agriculture better off in 1931 than it was in 18D9? Or worse off? Congressman Haugen squirmed slightly. The administration has no more loyal supporter than he in the house of representatives. Evidently he hated to admit that, under its benign influence, the farmers have anything to complain of. Yet it is notorious that they do complain-terribly. Finally, "The present law Is all right," he answered. "It is based on the correct principle. The trouble is that it lacks the necessary machinery to make the principle effective." Ah, the equalization fee mechanism?--as provided in the original McNary-Haugen bill? The congressman nodded! And, without that, can the farm act of today ever be made to work satisfactorily? "I hope so," said the lowan, but he said it pessimistically. Plan Community 1 Oil Company.
