WALLACE OFFERS 4 POINT PROGRAM Declares High Tariff Policy Would "Sell Farmers Down River." LINCOLN, Nebr., (--Declaring that farmers would be "sold down the river" if they accepted a high tariff policy as a "cureall for agriculture," Secretary Wallace outlined Monday a'four point program for agricultural improvement. 'The outlook for agriculture is bright,-" Wallace said at a meeting of farmers at the University of Nebraska, "But keeping it so will depend upon maintaining the present lealthy supply situation, re-opening further the channels of world trade, conserving the fertility of the farm plant, and developing the latent home market. 'This last can only come from increasing the buying power of the large groups of people who now have little or nothing to exchange for goods. Leadership Challenged. "To give them employment and earning power is a problem challenging the best leadership and the sincerest thought of industry, of agriculture and of government." The secretary said that imports of farm products during the past year have been comparatively slight. "The real question is not whether we want a tariff for 'farm products," Wallace said. "We already have one. The real question is, are farmers going to accept the high tariff idea as a cure-all for agriculture? Sold Down River. "If they do, I tell you frankly, farmers are going to be sold down the river again. Need I remind you CLEAR LAKE BRIEFS For Rent: Apt. Avalon. Fh. 318. Boys--Girls--Mothers.

Child Training Expert. Ever so many young mothers are almost distracted because their baby is not "house broke" as early as a friend's child. And those who think they have been very clever in training the child to be "clean" and dry before the age of one or two, are forever bragging about their achievement in the presence of mothers whose children still are untrained. And what makes them brag? They get pleasure from the pain which they inflict upon the worried mother, and the more her pain the more their pleasure. Can you think of any meaner person than these braggarts? Be More Sensible. Now I wish mothers would be more sensible than to be affected by these boors. Whether your baby keeps clean and dry at the age of one or two, three or later, is entirely a. matter for you and your child, chiefly for you. You do the work. As for the baby, be may be happiest when wet or "dirty." Why make it an emotional matter at. all? Why let it be .social business? Make it strictly your own. Many a mother, because of temperament, health or press of household work, should not attempt "training" the child very early. She would get better results and waste so much less energy if she were to wait six months or a year longer to begin than she thinks she should. The.actual work involved in caring for the child still untrained at two or even three, might take many times less nervous energy than to lift that emotional log in her stomach or carry it around. The worst of it is she may tote the log and still 'not "get results, when it is sure to grow heavier and heavier. Mother Too Solicitous. Then there's many a mother too solicitous about bed wettings.

Maybe ha won't readily go back to sleep then, and she, poor soul, may remain awake for hours--while her husband snoozes. I wish he would bear some of the briny burdens -of the night. Let me urge mothers who can't go right to sleep after taking the baby up, to let the child sleep on wot or dry, even though he be three or even five. If nobody shows any feeling about the matter, and the child's skin is protected by proper lubricants and' the bed with a rubber sheet, al may be well. Treated so, most children will awaken in the morning dry before they are four or five, anyway. If I could persuade young mothers to be more sensible about the problems of the baby's wetting by day or night I could save them and Question and Answer Program Conducted at Rotary Club Meeting A question and answer program was conducted at the Rotary club program Monday noon in Hotel Hanford.
