j 1 10 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 14 m 1931 DELAY IN GRAIN RATE REDUCTIONS CHARGED IN PETITION CHANGE ORDERED BY COMMISSION Decreases by Western Rail Carriers Impos tant for Iowa, By BADFORD E. MOBLEX · Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, March 14.--In a brief filed 1 this week with the interstate commerce commission, the Nebraska railway commission officials charge directly that western rail carriers are attempting to delay as much 'as possible the effectiveness of the grain rate reductions ordered : by the commission last year but which have never been put into operation. ; The railroads have "filed a number o£ petitions. with; the commission, alleging: that the new rates will result in a loss to'them of $20,000,000 and seeking x to postpone'.the order. These petitions tiave been denied, but the, petttipr/ this week asserts that further efforts to prevent the rates from becoming operative are being made. . . - Reductions Important. As ordered 1 by the commission, important .reductions on all kinds of grain will :affect Mason City and virtually, every : other shipping center in lie state. .The reductions will also be felt'in intrastate shipments of grain. ''Further postponement of the effective date of the order for the reductions," the petition from Nebraska said, "would in all probability prevent the proposed rales, particularly; if there were an appeal, from being put into force and-effect^ in time to move considerable portions of the crops to he produced-'in 1931. . .. , Would Be Forced Sales. "Owing to the depressed condition 'of '.agriculture now, and for several years past in many states in ths western district.'producers of grain will be.' ; compelled,.in order to meet pressing financial obligations, to sell their grain at the 'first opportunity. , · ' . . . . .'.It is therefore hardly possible that the order, even if mad-e effective as quickly as possible after the court proceedings, which would be enforced in time to carry the 1931 crops," it continued.' "If the order of the commission'is sustained finally, such delay will deprive producers arid consumers of grain of the benefit of the order, to which they J afe justly entitled." .

Told, to Consider "Living" Values : AMES, March 14 .-^Farmers should not over-emphasize economic, values to the exclusion of social, or "living" values, according to F. D. Farrell, president of Kansas State agricultural college, who was on the Iowa State college campus. While here he talked to faculty members and students on agricultural teaching and on some agricultural · convictions. There's one consolation? When the panhandler asks for a nickel, you know he won't waste it on a big st'.ooner of beer.--Kessinger's Review. ARE YOU TOO LATE? "TOO LATE," is what I have'to say to five or six out of every hundred who call at my office for an examination. Some of these "too late" ones. have tubercular or other grave ulceration, and others have tubercular fistula, involving such deep structure that the case Is practically hopeless. IN EVERY CASE there was a time when cure was possible, but the patient let that time pass, either in ignorance or because of . improper advice. In every case that is now cnrable a day is com- irisr when It will be "Too Late." In every cose that is now curable,,, delay makes the treatment more difficult and expensive. NEVERTHELESS many who read this and need treatment NOW will put off seeking help until it may be "TOO LATE." Others will delay until pain or some other symptom forces them to consult 11 , rectal specialist. Even though I offer free consultation most people have to be forced by something, to do what they know they should do at once. It is a free country. No .one la obliged by law to seek good health. : . ' A FEW WISE ONES needinc help NOW- will come NOW and these make up those who are under my treatment and getting relief from, their trouble. They are the ones who do the right thing at the right time and NOW IB the right time with rectal diseases. Private Diseases, etc. DR.
