CLEAR LAKE--The Clear Lake branch of the American Red Cross and Stafford post 222 of the American Legion will sponsor a course in first aid with T. L. Connors of Mason City as the instructor. The school will be held at the Legion clubrooms, the first class being scheduled for Monday, April 13 The course is open to both men anc women as well as the young people The course covers 10 periods of an hour and one-half each. No charge is being made except for the cost of the text book which is 60 cents. The number of serious accidenta: injuries ·annually in this country reaches an appalling figure. In far too man3' cases death or maiming for life might be prevented through simple but proper emergency care The purpose of instruction in firsl aid to the injured is to provide training for immediate, intelligent treatment in an emergency. It is in no sense intended to take the place of a physician's services. Three of the most important phases of first aid are artificial respiration, control of bleeding and treatment of shock. In addition to these three, instruction is given in treatment of fractures, burns and poisons. Clear Lake Briefs Look your best in the Easter jarade, visit the Park Barber and 3eauty Shop.

PARK THEATER Tonight Jack Oakie, Spencer Tracy, Ar- Une Judge, Constance Cummings in "Looking for Trouble" Admission lOc and lie MEASURE BRINGS JONES -COSTIGAN FEATURES BACK Sponsored by Administration Leaders Bill Certain of Passage, Says Moore. Special benefits for domestic sugar products are contained in a new bill introduced by Senator Patterson, one of the administration spokesmen in the senate, Earl C. Moore, manager of the American Crystal Sugar company, stated in a letter to growers Wednesday. The growers, who received checks on the basis of 25 cents a ton on last year's crop Saturday, have been awaiting developments in the form of legislation. This payment which totaled $27,500, brings the total payment on last year's crop to 55.05. Rumors Circulate. "It has come to our attention that a great many rumors have been circulated about our beet growing territory relative to the part that the beet crop will have in the nsw government program," Mr Moore stated. "While many have apparently felt, that the program as originally announced was final, we have advised our fieldmen and manj; growers who have consulted us thai we felt that further ' legislation would be passed which would offer decidedly better advantages to the beet grower. "We are now in a position to advise you that a Washington, D. C., news release states a bill has jusl been introduced in the senate by Senator Harrison, which provides special benefits for domestic sugar producers. "The provisions of this new measure virtually re-establish the original features of the Jones-Costigan Act except that the total payments to growers of sugar beets are limited to 50c a hundred pounds of sugar produced. "This would mean s. 15 per cent beet would call for a benefit payment of 51.50 a ton. "By referring to your contract and assuming a net return of sugar sold of ?4.25 a hundred pounds, a 15 per cent beet would then bring lie total you would receive to $6 a ton. "With sugar now selling at 54.70 a hundred pounds (the highest in six years) and a possibility of a ligher quality beet, it would seem that the above figure of $6 a ton of beets is at least conservative. '"This is the first information of any definite action regarding special sugar legislation and while this is not yet a law it is sponsored by the administration leaders, and while it may he amended to a degree, such amendment would only nake its conditions still more fa- rorable to the producer of beets, to any event, it appears that growers of beets would be well taken care of. "Any member of our agricultural organization or the writer will be glad to discuss with you any ques- ;ion that you may have in regard :o the above." Paid ?2 an Acre. Last year AAA paid to beetjrowing: farmers an average of $20 an acre whenever they subscribad to the curtailment program and observed quotas fixed for them by the department of agriculture. This year, under the new AAA, otherwise known as the soil conservation act, beet farmers would receive only $4.35 an afre on an average. Where the beet grower is to be. paid 12% cents a hundred pounds of sugar in his beets, the southern farmer is to receive 5 cents a pound for his cotton, it was pointed out. This explains the uprising in congress over the interpretation of the new farm act by Secretary Wallace. In contrast to this treatment of American beet growers. Senator Vandenberg brings to light the fact that one New York bank, controlling a single sugar operation in Puerto Rico, drew down over $700,000 in benefit payments last 'year, while a single Puerto Rican sugar company received $961,000 as compensation for restricting its planting of cane, it was stated.

Rates upon whicfi Class 2, or "soil building," payments will be based under the soil conservation and domestic allotment program was explained by County Agent Marion B. Olson, Wednesday. The payments an acre on seed- ings on crop land between Oct. 1, 1935, and Sept., 30, 1936, are: Alfalfa, $2; red clover and mammoth clover, $1.50; alsike clover, sweet clover, white clover and Korean lespedeza, $1; legume mixtures, $1.50, and soybeans plowed under as green manure, $1.50. Soybeans must be turned under by Sept. 30, 1936. Legume and grass mixtures which contain 50 per cent or more of alsike clover, sweet clover, white clover, Korean lespedeza, or any two or more of these legumes, will be eligible for payment of not more than $1 an acre. May Use legume. Grasses may be seeded with a legume, or legume mixture, and the full payment will be made, provided the usual .amount of the legume is seeded and the grass is seeded in addition. For example, if 8 pounds of legume seed were the normal rate per acre when seeded alone, a farmer must seed 8 pounds and the grass seed in addition in order to qualify for the legume payment. Payment for the planting of forest trees will be made at the rate of $5 per' acre when planted on crop land or pasture land between Jan. 1, 1936, and Sept. 30, if the plantings are made in accord with the state forestry recommendations. Class 2 payments for these soil building practices will not be made when the labor, seed or materials are provided free by any state or federal agency. Stand Will Be Proof. Proof of performance will be a good stand of a legume or legumes. Application of limestone to crop or pasture land, at the rate of 2 or more tons an acre, will be eligible for a payment of $2.50 an acre. The lime must be applied between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30. Although the amount of the Class 2 payment per acre in many instances is more than the $1 base for each acre in soil conserving crops on the farm this year, the amount paid to a farmer cannot exceed a total of $1 per acre for all of his "soil conserving" acreage. The Class 2 payments are in addition to the larger per acre Class 1 payments. It might not be a permanent solution, but the unemployed problem could be pretty well disposed of for the next six months by providing each man out of work with a fish- pole and let the WPA supervise a bait-digging project. -- Hutchinson, lums..
