MASON CITY GLOBEiGAZETTE MAY 1934 SUPPORT ACT FOR INDUSTRY LOANS Senate Committee Bill to Create Revolving Fund in RFC. WASHINGTON, May 7. (jet--A bill to create a $250,000,000 revolving fund in the Recons traction Finance corporation for direct 5 year loans to industry was approved today by the senate banking committee Meanwhile, the house banking committee was told in a letter from Chairman Jones of the RFC that President Roosevelt still favored letting the corporation make direct loans to industry. The new industrial loan bill was approved by the senate committee without a record vote. senator Barkley (D., Ky.) said he probably would offer it as an amendment 'to the Glass bill pending, in the senate, which would pro- ride a $280,000,000 fund in the fed- e ral reserve bank for similar loans. The RFC bill, recommended by Jones, is more liberal in its loans terms than the federal reserve board bill introduced by Senator Glass (D., Va.). It would permit direct loans to industry where credit was not available through the usual channels at normal interest rates while the Glass bill is designed primnnly to extend credit indirectly through banks and other financial institu- 'tibns, with the latter taking 20 per cent of the risk.

CLEAR LAKE, May 7.--Aa the iresent school year draws to a close naiiy activities are keeping the stu- entu of the high school busy. Practices were started Monday in nreparation for the national band :ontest which the local band is to compete in May 31 to June 2 at Des Joines. Plans have not been definitely completed as to whether the orch estra will compete in the nationa but it is considered doubtful as sev eral new selections would have to learned. The Clear Lake high school will compete Tuesday in the sixth annual academic contest in Iowa. Every pupil in the high school is required to take the tests, which will cover 14 subjects including English correctness for ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grades. Other subjects to be covered are algebra, · geometry, general science, biology, physics, English literature, world history, first and second year Latin and American government. The aim of the tests is to measure the educational achievement of the school, and encourage better scholarship among the pupils. sition through 'ice." · He directed attention to what he said was a "vacillating condition of mind" on the part of his opponents for the nomination on the tax issue. 'Shortly before I announced my candidacy for- governor." he said "two candidates who had previously announced for the same office in dlcated their friendliness to th gross income tax. "One is quoted as saying that h was 'very sympathetic' to such tax plan: the other that he wa ·very friendly' and that the gros income tax 'had great possibili "For "some reason, either be cause of direct or remote contro they have now changed their att tudes and are denouncing the gros income tax.'" ver, that has a happier meaning, nd that if you're wise in selecting ings of better quality, the upkeep vill be lessened to a highly pleasing For instance two men built homes bout the same time several years go One tried to see how many rooms he could get for his money and he has a lot to say about the out of upkeep. The other was a tickler for quality and he has few pkeep worrks. Insisted on Quality. Mr. "Quality," as we might call number two, nsisted on the high- »t quality plumbing with non rust- ng pipes, leak proof faucets and everything installed by an expert plumber. He hasn't had a plumber n the house since. Mr. "Price" on the other hand bought the cheapest ob he could get a bid on and has been paying "upkeep" plumbers «ver since. Mr. "Quality" had his walls insulated^ good quality, weather strips on all openings and competent storm windows for winter use. His "upkeep" on heating costs is very low Indeed while Mr. "Price" does a lot of complaining about the high cost of fuel. In the same way Mr. "Price' has had to replace his screens but Mr. "Quality's" were rustproof and are still on the job. Mr. "Price" saved several dollars on the original cost of his oak floors but wasn't careful to se« that he got thoroughly kiln dried stock and the cracks and warpings are calling for more "upkeep" in the shape of repairs and perhaps eventual replacement. Saved Money. I could list you half a hundred other things on which Mr. "Price 1 saved money on the original cost only to find that he'll.have to spend it anyway for "upkeep" and never have the satisfaction that abides with Mr. "Quality" in his soundly built home. Eave troughs and roofing and heating equipment, woodwork and plaster and lighting fixtures all everlastingly wearing out or getting out of kilter because of. skimped quality at the outset. These two men have learned-each in a different way--that "it isn't the original cost that counts, Its the upkeep" which is only another way of saying that "It's quality that counts, not price." Insist on at least a fair measure of quality in everything thaf you buy and though your cost may be a little greater in the beginning, it will be less in the end.
