MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MINIMUM ON PAY FOR SUGAR BEET WORKERS LISTED Compliance to Receive Benefits Required by Agriculture Department The agriculture department announced Thursday minimum wage rates which sugar beets producers must pay laborers this season in order to" be eligible for government benefit payments authorized, by the sugar control act, according to an Associated Press dispatch from Washington, D. C. " The department said the rates for. iJie .country as a whole were, about 4 per cent below those 9!! last season, virtually the same as 1 in 1937 and about Jive per cent i above the general level before | enactment ol control. legislation. Reflects _Sharp- Decline · Benefit, payments to producers complying 'with, .the wage, production and marketing provisions of the.control act are 60 cents per 100 pounds .of sugar. The four per cent reduction in wages: under. 1938, officials' said, reflects a rather sharp decline in raw sugar prices since last year. Rates Are Listed The rates, established on a district basis, include: District '2, Minnesota and Iowa --blocking, thinning and hoeing, "old method" or "hill drop" fields, ?12 per acre. Blacked fields, S10.50 per acre. Cross cultivated fields, S9.50 pet- acre.

The .department said that if it was essential to employ labor on other than a piece rate basis, the minimum rate is to be that agreed upon between the producer and the laborer, and approved by the state AAA committee. . The. wage determination also provides that the producer must furnish - t h e laborer, without charge, the accessories customarily supplied' by him.

GAIUS G.ATKINS For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Read 1 Timothy 1:7-10. Timothy's trouble seems to have been timidity. -Fear was putting his fire put. Fear does bank the fires of life but, by a strange contradiction, it also kindles fires of ite own. Hatred, for example, and all that hatred engenders, are terribly consuming fires and phy- chologists tell us that most hatreds are the result of fear. Intensity of passion and purpose is a kindling force but intensities can go tragically wrong. We need lo watch our fires. Love, the Apostle says, is the only sure control of zeal. Power is a divine gift but power uncontrolled by good-will, undirected by a disciplined mind, may destroy its possessors. Which is what power seems dangerously in the way of doing for us. If only Jove had the equal of the armaments and the enthusiasm which pride and evil passions seem to control, how changed our world would be. Prayer: O Thou Who hath saved us.and called us with a holy calling, save us now from every power which does not acknowledge the mastei-j- of love. Illumine our wisdom with a clear light and through our fear of forsaking Thee, may we be delivered from all other fears. Amen.
