STILL PLENTY OF ROOM FOR FARMER (Continued ^From .Faga 1). class of American farmers to take from the soil. ,,'. But oh, how dissimilarly the pair of them expressed this same idea! According to Banker ' Traylor's showing, a living is all right;, for folk who are satisfied with it, agriculture offers plenty of opportunities.- . ; . ' -··-.; ; According to Secretary Dunlap, a bare living Is the best prospect that great numbers of farmers can reasonably hope'for; they will be able to feed themselves and their broods, and thai; is about'all, since agricultural- production, for the markets' requirements, soobviously exceeds the demand. , ·· - ' ' · . ·* '-.__ . " . ·THE assistant secretary previsions ·«· a separation o£ America's farmers into three groups: j. . 1.. A relatively small number who, adequately capitalized and operating on a large scale, with the best machinery, by the most intensive, highly scientific modern methods and in favorable geographic locations, will reap large returns as mass pi-oduc- ters, at a small profit but a great deal of it. 2. A. much larger classification on par with moderately prosperous urban folk. ' 3. A basic layer who Will raise for :hemselves what they need-to eat, iu.t 'in all probabillty-jWill be' dependent for whatever.else.they may require upon such employment as they can obtain from the. larger scale operators or from occasional job work in, city industries--not a very brilliant outlook, considering the . extent to which machinery is replacing men in up-to-date farming and the already cdngested state of the industrial labor market. T SOUNDS dismal to hear Secretary Dunlap, whom I take to be a pessimist, prophesy; not a bit gloomy to listen to Banker Traylor, who frankly declares himself an optimist. , Now the fact is that a farmer, once started a-farming (some capital undoubtedly is needed at the outset), does not need; much actual currency to live on. He does,, of course, if he raises only wheat or cotton, even buying condensed milk and canned vegetables; but I am assuming- that he has a few pigs and chickens and a couple of cows, plants a small grove of fruit trees arid ralses : an acre or so of garden truck. With these resources he is practically self-supporting; clothes are a negligible item in the country. I once tried it myself and know what I am talking about But taxes!--they ruined me. "I can see," I said to Banker Traylor, .Vhow the farmer you de- Bcrib'e can LIVE, so long as no un- escapablc demand is made on him for cash monej', but won't he be thrown into bankruptcy ever so often by the tax collector?" '.'A-h-h-h!" exclaimed the banker, "that's just it! "He mustn't anticipate his Income. He mustn't run into debtr-either personally, or as part of the community. If he does, he'll find himself in trouble, certainly. "Roads?, Expensive public improvements--all to be paid for in the future.. Of course they'll be a load when the bill comes to be settled." , ' But can the individual farmer be neld responsible if his community overdoes itself and mortgages his future along with his neighbors'? "Ha generally votes for the mortgage," answered Banker Traylor. At Mason City's THEATERS ."Strangers May Kiss," starring Norma Sheargr, opened Saturday at the _ Cecil theater. Two of the screen's most,popular leading men share masculine honors in the sparkling production, Robert Montgomery and Neil Hamilton, Montgomery played with Miss Shearer in "Their Own Desire" and "The Divorcee' and recently was featured in "Inspiration" and "The Easiest Way." Hamilton is best known for his re markable performance in "The Dawn PatroL" An unusually imposing cast appears in supporting roles. Marjorie Rambeau, who last was seen in "Mln and Bill," plays the part of Mjss Shearer's confidante. Irene Rich is the trusting wife who ends her life when she discovers her husband's infidelity. Hale Hamilton is the husband in the case and Jed Prouty is Miss Hambeau's "boy friend." Conchita Montenegro, exotic Spanish dancer, plays her first English-speaking role and, Albert Conti is the Spaniard who is enamored of the heroine. The story concerns Lisbeth, a very modern young woman who takes romancers she finds it, attaching herself to a jlobe-trotting journalist without Benefit of clergy. Hamilton is the oving chap and when he finds her likewise accepting favors of .other men he casts her off, .the double- standard not Including; the. woman whose love he holds. Montgomery is :he suave youth, always understanding and ever ready to marry Uisbeth when she tires of'the other chap; In the end the true lovers get together, both having- learned a bitter lesson in a bitter world. What "AH Quiet On the Western Front"' was to the armies in the late war, "The Seas Beneath" is to the competing navies. This remarkable romance of submarine warfare, created by John Ford for F6x Movietone, opened Saturday at the Strand theater, and skilfully combines a unique love-story with 'a breathless and graphic portrayal of the allied struggle against the U- boat. Opening with the departure of a determined little flotilla irom New York for the Canaries with a certain German submarine as Its objective, developing Its strange and sympathetic romance at the epy-ridden port of Santa Cruz, and ending In a terrific and marvelously photographed naval battle between the giant U-boat on one side and an American submarine and a "mystery ship" on the other, "The Seas Beneath" is truly an epic bf maritime history. Especially notable performances are given by George O'Brien and Marion Lesslng In the leading roles and o£ Warren Hymer, William Collier, Sr., and Walter C. Kelly' as the continuously battling sailors. COMING ATTRACTIONS CECIL. Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday--Norma Shearer in "Strangers May Kiss" with Robert Montgomery and Neil Hamilton.
