ACCEPTS POSITION' LIME SPRINGS--Charles Hall, WHO has been employed for the past seven years in the City meat market, has accepted a position under Al Johnson of the Burgess Lumber company. Mr. Hall previously had worked for this company for a period of 13 years. Talle Backs 3 1-2 Per Cent U. S. Land Bank Loan Rate Representative From ·4th District Makes First Speech in House WASHINGTON--In his maiden speech before the house of representatives, Henry O. TaUe of Decorafo,. Iowa, fourth district member, gave support to a measure introduced by him to lighten the interest load and amortization charges made by the federal land bank and the land bank commissioner on farm 16ans.- "I am glad," he said -in conclusion, to the applause of the house, "that in my first speech in this house I might raise my voice in behalf of the American farmer." The -lowan's bill 'would permanently establish the .rate on both types of loans at 3',i'per- cent. It would extend, the due date on the commissioner loans to 34 years instead of the present short term which varies from 10 to 14 years from date of issued Urges Break for Farmer "Industry," declared Mr. Talle, "can borrow money at.a rate that is lower than that which the farmer must pay." He proceeded to a declaration. that the farmer is entitled to an cveii break with industry. But more p a r t i c u l a r l y he claimed smaller annual interest and principal payments over a long period of years would be a very stabilizing influence on the entire domestic. farm situation and even have national defense attributes of incalculable scope. At the same time he made it plain he did not believe that passage of his bill .would solve the so-called "farm problem." 'All he claimed was !hat it would be a step in the right direction and bring material assistance to those 1 farmers that need it most--the ones that have mortgages against their lands. Declares Bill Reasonable "It appears to me," declared the Decorah man, "that there is merit in my bill. In the first place it is reasonable. The federal government can borrow money at so .low a rate that it can afford to lend money to farmers at 3V4 per cent. Commercial banks do not now pay more than 2 per cent on savings accounts. Many banks pay less than 2 per cent. The federal government pays no more than 2 per cent on postal sayings. Some commercial banks will not pay any interest at all on savings accounts. In fact, I have known commercial banks to turn down prospective customers, rejecting their savings accounts altogether. . "In the second place, it appears to me that simple justice demands that such a bill should pass this house. Industry can' borrow money at a rate which Is lower than that which the farmer must pay. Interest o n ' a mortgage is a heavy fixed charge. Justice demands that this burden should weigh no more heavily on agriculture than it does on industry. Would Stabilize Agriculture "In the third place, this bill will help to stabilize agriculture. If the borrower is permitted to make his payments on principal over a period of 34 years, he will be better able to make his payments vegu- This D O U B L E WALL S P E E D Q U E E N Washer in combination ivith this new SPEED QUEEN TABLE I R O N E R The a\ eraj;e quality washer costs S69.50.

This bill, when enacted into law, will promote orderly payments of the principal with the result that fewer farms will be foreclosed upon and become a burden to the federal government. "It is, not necessary for me to point out that agriculture is in a bad way at the present time. H is not necessary for me to point out that the future prospect of agriculture is not bright. This problem is a serious one, and I say it is a much more serious matter than is the problem o£ national defense. I plead with this congress to pay attention to our internal problems first. If this congress does not do so, it may well be that we shall have little to defend. Farming Declared Viial "Let us put first things first. Then, as we begin to solve our in- ernal problems such as the plight f agriculture and unemployment, ve can meet our external prob- ems with, more assurance.' I am or adequate national defense. So s every other loyal American. But also want to be sure that the nternal affairs of my country are such shape that there is trength in our farming group, trenglh in our industrial group, 'rength in our transportation ·oup, and 'strength in our pro- essional group. The best defense ur country can have is a strong omestie · economy. Certainly the ondition of agriculture at the resent lime demands that this 11-important branch of our do- nestic economy be strengthened. "Finally, I do not maintain that my bill, when enacted into law, vill solve the problem of agricul- ure. But I do maintain that it ·ill aid in the solution.-And I do maintain that this bill is a reason- ble measure. It is a constructive rteasure. It is a measure w.hich nerits the support of every mcm- er in this house. Has Farm Background "I \vas born and reared on a arm. I have done all the kinds of vork the farmer must do in the ourth district of Iowa, which I iave the honor to represent. I lelped my parents to pay off a mortgage on - the old homestead vhich is still held iri the family lame and on which my mother nd one brother still reside. There s no mortgage on that farm today. There has not been since Before our country entered into he World war. But that is rather an exceptional case. I mention it ere because I want to make it lear that I do not expect to profit n a definitely personal way by the passage of my bill. "In conclusion, I contend that he American farmer is an. honest, upright, hard-working, clean-liv- ng, intelligent citizen ot our ·ountry. He is the. backbone of our nation. He raises the food we iat. He furnishes the raw ma- erials that go into the clothes we vear. He supports our schools and our churches. He reaches down nto his pockets and supplies ;ood share of the taxes that must be paid for the maintenance - of lovernment. He does.not die rich. 3ut during his lifetime he works lard; maintains a decent home; tries to educate his children; and s as loyal to the free institutions ot America as any man who has ;he honor to call himself American. "Mr. Chairman. 1 am glad lhat n my first speech in the house 1 might raise my. voice in behalf of the American farmer." 20-22 East State St. Phone 17 115 Attend Mother, Daughter Banquet in Church at Swea City SWEA CITY -- One hundred fifteen attended the "Mother and Daughter" banquet at the M.
