·M: ll f Backstage in Iowa Politics Willkie More Mature, Politically Discreet and Smoother Speaker; Governorship Support Discussed By PAUL R.

"No one is trying to protect farmers from the dralt," said Sen Bankhead (D-AIa.), "but we are concerned about food production." The movemeut to relax the reg- ulations'has been indorsed by the American Farm Bureau, federation, the National Grange, the National Council of Farmer Co-Operatives and the National Co-Operative Milk Producers federation. Originally, a farm worker in order to be entitled to draft determent was required to produce 8 ·war units--a measure of production, computed by selective service. Under the new rules he must produce 16 units and Bankhead estimated that with 69 per cent ol the workers having produced less than 16 units in 1943, and allowing for some deferments on other bases, about half of the 1,700,000 now-deferred workers face induction. ' ··_ The farm commitlee announced it was inviting Brig. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, selective service director, to testify Friday as to the effect of the new rules on th 1S44 farm labor supply, Bankhead said his estimate xva Cased on information supplied b farm organizations and by th bureau o£ agricultural economic of the agriculture department. It was the first estimate to b advanced since Hershey announce last week the order directing draf boards to review all agriculture deferments. Selective service of facials had said they had no wa of knowing how many worker would be affected. After a conference with farrr o r g a n i z a t i o n representatives Bankhead declared he believed the new rules would "seriouslx hamper' agriculture in its attempt to meet expanded :D14 pro duction goals.

Brown of Iowa City told the Polk County Medical Society Wednesday night women between the ages of 40 and 55 should decrease tlie tempo of their daily living routine to avoid trouble.

The protestors included the Federation of Women's clubs and the American Association of University Women. Such a change ot name, the or- ganizaotms charged in a letter would "threaten the integrity of the federal food, drug and cosmetic act of 1938," allow misrepresentation of the product raise its price, hamper the program to improve nutrition of low income families, and set a dangerous precedent."' Consumers, they said, don't object at all to buying "dry skim milk' under its present name, in fact, they added, "the supply does not meet the demand." . 22 Thursday, Feb. 2*; 19441 MASON CITT GLOBE-GAZETTE | FURS BUY NOW v AND SAVE; m our greatest CLEARANCE SALE Buy Now For Next Season ENTIRE STOCK REDUCED _ Every Fur Coat in our entire stock offered now at sharp reductions!
