By RADFORD E. MOBLEY Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, March 31.--Proposals to revive the equalization fee in tho next seaslon of congress find no favor with Representative C.-W. Ramseyer, Bloomfield, one of the four.or five men who had most to do with framing the original McNary-Haugen oil! embodying the fee. Ramseyer thinks, like Senator McNary, Oregon, that world conditions have changed so that the equalization fee would be a futile gesture. Not only does Ramseyer condemn revival of the fee plan, but he continues steadfast .in his belief *hat the export debenture plan is unworkable and that relief for agriculture thru reduction of industrial tariffs is impracticable. ,. Restrict Acreage. The sole hope' of achieving any measure of relief, he said in an Interview today, lies in restriction of acreage in those crops where, the tariff is 'ineffective so that it can be made effective. "The huge world surplus now existing would make the equalization fee completely ineffective now," he said when questioned regarding the intention .H ot 1 Senator , Norbeck, South Dakotii to re.intrpduce the 'measure."It, would simply b* au effort to delude the farmer into thinking he was getting something. He wouldn't., ., ; '.\ · ' "As for the debenture,, antidumping provisions all over the world would now, as always; nullify it. We have such provisions, and it is folly to suppose other countries will permit us to pour our surplus into their borders without raising bara just as we do. Move Not Possible.

Certainlyr I thinkU would be a serious mistake to provide any. blanket percentage reduction of all tariff, rates.".. t -The only thing left to do, he went on. is-to follow the farm boards urgent recommendations for reduction of acreage In overproduced crops. Asked if this were humanly possible, he replied it certain y is possible altho admittedly difficult.

H^/iR; HEALTH beqins in the roots, for life and natural ·luster treat your scalp and dress your hair, in one operatton.J for the entire family. ^ HAIR ROOT OIL * · K OTEX is soft, and it stays soft. It,does not pack into chafing hardness . after use. Millions of women have discovered that fact, and they are particular to specify Kotex. One of the reasons why Kotex stays soft is the way in which it absorbs-- quickly, scientifically over the entire length of the pad. Many other pads absorb in one concentrated area, -which.soon becomes uncomfortable. Kotex is guaranteed to last longer, stay soft longer, than any other sanitary pad. You can wear Kotex on either side, with no. 'chance of possible embarrassment, with the same degree of efficiency. It deodorizes. It is shaped to fit. And it is, of course, disposable.
