EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE APRIL 12 1934 APPROVE PLAN TO PAY DEPOSITORS Banking Committee Acts on McLeod Bill; 131 Sign Vote Petition. WASHINGTON, April 12. UB-- The house banking committee today approved legislation to pay off depositors in closed national banks but limited the amount which may be paid in full to 52,500. This action came as 131 names were obtained to a petition to force the measure by Representative McLeod (R., Mich.) out of the committee to the house floor for a vote. A total of 145 signatures is required for that procedure. " Also, Speaker Rainey had just ruled that publication of the names Don't endure pimples and blotches.

The provisions in the bill, as they now stand, provide for payment to depositors in all national, state and private banks which were closed oa or after Jan. 1, 1930 up to 52,500. The $2,500 payment also applies to banks which are now closed, or which have reorganized or reopened without payment in full. During discussion of Rainey's ruling, Representative Blanton (D., Tex.) asserted: "This violation of the rules was made by the Hearst newspapers. No cne knows better what the rules oi the house are than the Hearst newspapers. The speaker on his own motion should appoint a committee to .find out who gave that list of names to the Hearst newspapers." Blanton Scores Hearst. When Rainey made his ruling, without appointing a committee or without naming Hearst, a republican member--Rich of Pennsylvania --asked "what are you going to do about it?" Blanton retorted that "Mr. William Randolph Hearst ought to be sent to jail for 30 days" for "violating" house rules, Under the measure, the Reconstruction corporation would take an assignment to the depositors' ac count for the amount paid. For the remainder of the claim the Reconstruction corporatioii would be authorized to advance loans at 3 per cent interest to the liquidating agent of a closed bank for 85 per cent of the present value of all remaining assets.

Including of Course GRIFFITH SCORES NEW DEAL PLAN Big Ten Athletic Chief Is Believer in Rugged Individualism. DES MOINES. April 12. UP)-Maj. John L. Griffith, athletic commissioner of the western conference, today declared himself an opponent of the "new deal" philosophy. In his spsech prepared for delivery before the Drake relays mass meeting in Shrine auditorium this afternoon, he attacked government trends sponsored by the Roosevelt administration in an analogy of political and economic thought with athletic competition. Major Griffith, honorary referee this year for the relay meet which he founded 25 years ago, was the principal speaker for the meeting, sponsored by the Drake Relays committee. Opposes Leadership. From the -very outset of his speech, Major Griffith established his desire to speak out against the "new deal" leadership. "I always like to have an excuse to come to Des Moinea, this time I wanted to talk you about a matter that has been puzzling me," be said. "I have been reading the speeches and writings of some of the learned men in Washington and I have found that these men think this is a pretty bad sort of country. "They imply that most of our successful men, whom they call creditors, accumulated their wealth by .dishonest methods and in some way or other violated rights of that honest group called debtors." Attacks .Subsidies. In his criticism of "new deal policies, Major Griffith's strongest attack was against government sub sidy plans to aid farmers On this point he said: "We will find some day that the government can no more guarantee a man a living in farming or as a mechanic than a coach can guarantee a boy that he will win the IOC yard dash if he tries out for track." Maintaining always his analogy between athletic competition and the political thought of the "new deal," Major Griffith also attacked the tendency to supplant "rugged individualism" with a 'soak the winner" policy to make the successful carry along the unsuccessful. Belongs to No Party. "I arn neither a republican nor a democrat," Major Griffith said at a breakfast in the Des Motaes club this morning, "but I do believe in the old idea of rugged individualism." "I think the people in this country have gone soft. They look for an easy way out and when they do that they are willing to sell their liberty for a few dollars. "I think a roan has to learn to fight for himself if he's going to amount to anything. We won't be much of a people if we're going to *et the government to do all our lighting for us."

Log Cabin Oil Co. The Home of High-Test Gas at Low-Test Price 100% HOME OWNED CO-OPERATION IN PLAN STRESSED Deputy Schwob Gives Talk to Kiwanians on Program of Conservation. Co-operation of all lowans and particularly the farmers is essential to successful completion of toe 25 year conservation program declared Fred T. Schwob, state deputy game warden, in an address Thursday noon to the Kiwanis club in Hotel Hanford. In establishing refuge for wild life, all problems come back to the farmer for he has control of the land, he said. Deputy Schwob pointed out that the farmer should feel secure on his land before he can be expected to participate in a long time development of conservation. The program is not expensive and involves only letting marginal lauds grow naturally to develop cover and to join in the work of letting erosion control and reforestation be carried on. Had Steadily Diminished. Mr. Schwob sketched the history of wild life in Iowa, showing it had steadily diminished. In the last 20 to 25 years many natural beauties were despoiled. In recent years an extensive campaign to get every available acre into crops producing land resulted in tilling much land that is now found to be unprofitable for crops. Highlights of the 2 year conservation program were given by Mr. Schwob as he pointed out three features, erosion control, wise use of surface water and reforestation. Not only for sportsmen, but for the general public, this program seeks to help lowans, providing recreation facilities and natural beauties. Should Control Shooting. Id establishing upland game, he stressed that tile farmer should control the-crop of birds and halt shooting when so many have been taken off, so that some will remain to reproduce for the following year. .

Letter Rate to Be Required on Reply Cards, New Ruling Local postoffice authorities were directed Thursday by a communica- tidn from the postmaster general's offices in Washington, to require the letter rate of postage on all double or reply cards where it is obvious that the so-called reply portion is designed for any other purpose than to be used by the recipient on replying to the sender. Bona fide double cards will still be accepted at the one cent rate in cases in which it can be reasonably expected that the reply card will be used, according to the official order, which is designed to stop the practice of persons and concerns of sending out monthly statements and similar materials on double post cards although the so-called reply half of the card is not intended to be used in making a reply.
