Bloodsworth appeared after Robert E. Clements, resigned Townsend officer, had testified concerning the Townsend Weekly, started, by himself and Dr. F. E. Townsend with a $250 investment. Books Muddled Clements revealed the weekly paid $500 or $600 profits weekly last year. He also told of a humorous suggestion for a patent medicine ad featuring a picture of a "naked woman" and a testimonal by Dr. Townsend. Bloodsworth, retained by the committee to examine records of the Old Age Revolving Pensions, Ltd., said the books were "confused and muddled." "Squeexe" Questioned Chairman C.

"What did you mean . by 'squeese'Trired- Bellr?rDfd -you mean to 'put the squeeze' on the local merchants all over the country and leave the national organization out of the picture?" Clements denied such intention. He said he had in mind the Chinese dclinition of "squeeze," which he said was "trading with one merchant to the exclusion of -other merchants."

"Of this total, $225,000 could be brought to Linn county if all eligible farmers will co-operate." -Mullen explained that farmers will be compensated at an average of approximately-$10 an acre for every acre they convert from soil depleting - to '-soil building ..crops .up-to 15. per eenU.-of --th acreage farmed each year. Roughly, the county agent estimates, 100,000 or more acres of Linn county farm land could be brought under the new program. The compensation rate per acre, would vary somewhat, exceeding' $10 for high grade and well f aimed land and falling under that amount for low grade, or inefficiently farmed land, the county agent said.
