'BY RODNEY ntlTCIIKR Courier N'cus Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON.—Tve U. -i. government is up to its ears in the greatest erTcri ever directed at amelioration of a natural catnsli'O- phe. It's as baid to envision [his va'.l. far-flung atlack as it is to comprehend the si-raiisnebs and spread of Ihe Great Drouth itself. The vvcatrcr i:ced to IM just the farmer's hard, luck—unless Washington happened to get. hi-' frcwlit rales reduced or lent him a lltll; I more money for seed. The present unparalleled drouth, threatening interference with lecovery and badly frightening an administration sworn to rahe farm prices by a threat cf food prices far too high, is being handled on an entirely different basis. At least S150.000.000 will be spent before the federal effort is 'over and well be seeing tlie most enormous operation of focd and feerl conservation of all time. Lcck at tre droulli map to see the area involved—1078 "emergency counties" in 22 slates, including all counties in Kansas. Nevada, tlie Dakotas. Oklahoma, and Ulan, nd 'Jtl "secondary" drouth couiuier. Nearly half tlie counties in the United Slates! Roosevelt in Chargr Our great so-cal'ed federal bu- ffnucracy is meeting a mighty te-n of its flexibility, ingenuity, speed, and adaptability to new emergency conditions. Several agencies in the "alphabet soup 1 ' are involved. The extensive new powers granted the New Deal by Congress are ccming in handy, not only for farmers, but for the rest of 115 whose pockelbooks are nffected by many current measures of conservation and prevention. • The man in charge of all this U President Rcosevelt himself making the chief decisions and allocating the $S25.nOO,Oon voted bv Congress for drouth relief. Here's the set-uo below r.im: The A/^A roftd Departmental Agriculture undoV.Secretary Henry A : Wallace are buyin^ millions of cattle and sheen lo be removed from trie commercial market and joining in a huge fecd-foraee program of conseryslion and distribution necessitated by Ihe fact that, the most desperate problem is primarily one of animal food rather than human food. Livestock left, on farms won't have much more than 50 per cent of normal feed requirements nnd compulsory rationing is a possibility. The Federal Emergency Relief Admini?tntion is en\arp5n» ' to stairs for water nnd food relief, expanding its work program droulh states, .and launching great camnaizn which will employ tens of thousands of distressed rural folk at rooting in tlie fields fnri stubble and weeds badly needed for forage.

Meanwhile, Ihc AAA. while devoting most of its attention to the drouth, is planning for th2 future what it hopes will be. a balanced, planned American agriculture.
