TIPTON, INDIANA, MONDAY .EVENING, APRIL 21, 11)30, Jobless Czechs to Grt Dole in Food as Help for Farmers Prague. April 21.—To help farmers and at the same time assure itself that unemployment benefits are expended for the purposes for which they were designed, the ministry of agriculture has decided to pay them largely in foodstuffs, instead of cash. This will prevent th,e expenditure of the dole on drink, as has been done in the past. Tickets issued by the labor exchanges to the workless, are exchangeable for food; This is the second step of the kind to be taken to relieve the agrarian crisis, the* first being the substitution in the army's rations of milk for the mysterious liquid called coffee.

GROUP IS POWERFUL If Farmers Will Only Uinte Their Platform May Be Successful. Indianapolis, Ind., April 21.— The Indiana Farm bureau, boasting a membership of more than 50,000, has set out to control the next Indiana t general assembly. Unlike the Indiana Anti-Saloon league, which apparently has a similar objective in 'view/ it is not concerned with the dry as-, pects- of legislation, but is interested solely in economics. The- farm Bureau has two goals—temporary tax relief by the next legislature and permanent relief through the adoption of a new constitution. To achieve this end ft has, like the Anti- Saloon league, sent out questionnaires to the more- than 400 seeking to pledge them to the agrarian program. There is no equivocation about the intent of the Farm bureau. It goes' directly to the point, in this questionnaire: "Are you in favor of holding a state constitutional convention, and will you work and vote for such a convention at the general election next November and, if elected, safeguard it in the legislature "Will you, if elected, oppose every bill, including the state budget bilj, proposed at the next session of the legislature that provides,. either directly or indirectly for an increase in property taxes? "Will you, if elected, work and vote for the enactment of tax laws, the proceeds of which-will be used to replace and will be substituted for part of the present property taxes?" The Farm- bureau not only intends to have nominees for the legislature working at the polls next fall for :;the passage ot the constitutional j convention - referendum hut also plans to have a house and senate composed of men and women standing adamant against any increase in the cost "of government. Farmers have not been sticking together in previous elections, although a growing nonpartisan strength at the ballot boxes I has been manifest. This •time,' however, there is every reason to believe the rural vote will be important, it not decisive. The quest ot the farmers for (Continued on Page 2).
