ff,"', "I THE CORSICANA SBMl-WEEKLY LIGHT, TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1939. IDLE ACREAGE WILL [BRING MORE INCOME THROUGH LIVESTOCK FEEDER-BREEDER CONFERENCE IN CORSICANA FRIDAY LARGELY ATTENDED By CHABLTON GtJNTER Dally Sun Staff. Additional farm income through the use of idle acreage for livestock was presented to representatives of ten or more Central Texas counties at the Blackland Feeder-Breeder Conference at the Palace Theater Friday morning by a corps of agricultural workers. At the afternoon session visits were paid to feeding and breeding projects within a few miles of the city. Necessity for the adoption of a better balanced 'arm program which would provide steadier income, and essential factors of luoh a program were presented to the group that filled the main floor of the theatre before the close of the session. R. W. Knight, representing the Corslcana Chamber of Commerce —one of the sponsors of the meeting, called the session to order 'and after extending greetings from the various co-operating ' agencies, briefly explained the reason for tho gathering. He declared there was a very evident y need of a change In the present V agricultural program, and the day ' 1 when cotton income alone would be sufficient was gone. He asserted the farmers of Texas could cither approach the situation 'as a crisis or us a challenge, and the approach would determine the results. Pie insisted there was a need for a new and Improved relationship between farmers and tenants, and between agriculture and business. ,*. Changed Conditions. ...^,, As a basis for later discussions. County Agent H. C. Robinson used a blackboard to definitely A. present tho changed conditions, using figures on Navarro county only which he said would apply in general proportions to other areas represented. He pointed out the average- annual total of cultivated land In 'this county was 415,000 uorcs, and .up to the time of the federal farm programs some 818,000 acres was planted to cotton, and 100,000 acres to feeds of all kinds each year, or approximately three-fourths devoted to the main crop. He then presented the apportionment of the acreage In 1938, which revealed about 165,000 acres of cotton, 150,000 acres to feeds classed as soil-depleting, and 100,000 acres devoted to neutral crops or left idle. He asserted only 'about 10,000 acres had been devoted to permanent pastures in this coutny and the remainder of the land had merely been left out of cultivation and thus produced no income although taxes and Interest were paid on the acreage. He summarized the changes show. ing that about 40 per cent of the { Hand was being planted to cotton N now, compared with 75 per cent formerly; feed acreage had increased 10 per cent to about 85; and about one-fourth of tho cultl- >vatable land was left idle, Idle Land Problem. , Mr. Robinson asserted the chief problem now was what to do with the idle land; he pointed out that regardless of belief concerning the farm program, universal compliance was necessary because of economic conditions. He said he believed the farmers were ready for livestock plans because they bad the possibilities of the feed Among these possibilities he listed permanent pastures, use of somfl of the land for legumes and other soil-building crops, small grains and other things that would re• quire livestock to market profitably. He said a recent ruling permitting use of idle acres for the growing of cane for silage would also be of great benefit. He said all of the present conditions were conducive to the development of a balanced agricultural program In introducing the next speaker Chairman Knight pointed to work which had been done for many years to broaden agricultural efforts, and also to a greater co-op- oration being shown by financial • agencies, especially those in Navarro county. Holland Is Speaker. Frank P. Holland of Dallas well known publisher, was the second speaker of the morning and declared that whether "we like II or not tho farm program we have now is here to stay." He said the government had made loans on 11 millions bales of cotton in theory but actually the staple had been purchased. He declared he was familiar with farm -problems in the blaoltland, since ho was a native of Bills county. . The sepalcer decdared a search £/m of agricultural history failed to reveal a single successful system of farming that was not based on livestock. He Insisted Texas farmers were selling only their raw products now while the major portion of > the Income was derlvec from the finished products. He also discussed typical conditions in Navarro county, "We can either take it sitting down or do something about It,' Mr, Holland asserted. Ho pointer out that milk processors laughet at him 25 years ago when he tried to secure plants in Texas, but ad, ded they had come to 'the state now to stay and the number of plants was increasing. He sin gled out Hopkins county as an example of changing conditions and showed that both a milk and a cheese plant were now located a " Sulphur Springs and the annua : cotton Income had been replaced by weekly and bi-weekly checks , tor milk and milk products. He • asserted that he himself operated 1 a 450 acre farm on which there waa no cotton and was profiting more than those who raised the "cash" crop. Soil Source of Income. Feed as such con not be sol< profitably, the speaker Insisted, bu wrap it In a hide and It becomes! worthwhile." He declared the only .stable source of income In Texas was the soil. Even If ex tensive livestock production re •BU,lted in surplus supplies he'said the various animals could be eaten and that was more than coul< be said for cotton. He insisted farmers were not produolni anontrh of their livelihood a (home. He pointed to the change ('Irfesyatema in Wisconsin years ago from A wheat to a dairying sec Y tor,,-and 'declared Texas farmers could, produce m(lk and " ' * tjs i • 14, roducts 25 per cent un«r the coat n the north, and even at present ow prices milk was worth more than cotton in cash returns. Mr. Holland declared the use of Ivestock solved the major portion of the problem since it supplied a market for the foodstuffs produced and also fertilized tho soil 'or the future. He declared Texas and particularly the blackland sector hnd every advantage over many other suctions such as climate, natural pasturage and others; he said finished beef could e delivered from Texas to the At- antlc seaboard for a cent a pound ess than it could be shipped from Chicago and other centers. The speaker pointed out that other states were already becom- ng alarmed over tho movement .o become Keif-reliant In Texas and pointed to embargoes and other measures being applied. Ha as- erted the problem affected the tu- ture of every man, woman and child in every part of Texas and that Texans .must defend themselves. Balanced System. T. C. Richardson of Dallas, ed- tor of Farm and Ranch, waa the lext speaker and declared that the "feeder-breeder" movement was nothing but a balancd system of endeavor which struck the iroper relations between energies,, acUltles, knowledge and resources. Ho asserted that farmers realized ;oday the present system wan wrong and functioned only under compulsion. He asserted that moat so-called 'cash" crops were only "credit" crops which produced little more than enough Income to pay the production loan. He insisted the ine-crop system had a false basis because It was expected to produce a 12-month income on a four to six months task. Among the features of the livestock-farming program pointed out by Mr. Richardson were balanced business In the various communities, balanced agronomy, balanced living, etc. He said that he did not particularly favor cattle but did favor the employment of whatever type animal feed was available to make ready for market. He took occasion to compliment the food locker system recently Installed In Corslcana, stating it was one of the most complete he had ever seen. He BUR seated it would be possible to in. crease meat production In Texas BO per cent and still not be necessary to take any more animals to town, asserting the gain could be used to supply the proper amount of raw meats In the dallj diet. He also pointed out that prolonged studies had shown that farm income rose steadily as cotton acreage went down and other logical .means of using the acre age employed. Merry-Uo-Round Break* Down. James R. Gill of Wsjtahachle, past president of the Texas Cottonseed Crushers' Association, declared Texas farmers had been "riding on a merry-go-round and It has broken down. He recalled other movements started during times of financial stress because of low prices and their short llvedness. Ho called attention of the group to the extensive development of the soybean Industry in the northern states, and asserted that in 1938 the bean by-products were used to replace the products secured from the seed in over 13 million bales of Southern cotton. Ho declared tho continued advance, of the industry would make it Imperative Southern farmers use their own products. A new note was introduced into the conference when Mr. Gill declared that little could be don« with a new movement with tho older farmers, and Insisted the only hope for the future was in the farm boys and.girls which he declared to be 'the most valuable farm crop of all. He urged that business men devote special efforts to becoming acquainted with the future farmers and aid them In adopting new methods. Children Suffer. He declared the hope of the state was in the present generation of boys and girls because they were born during the depression and knew little except hard times and still had the spirit and willingness to work and experiment. He pointed out several examples along this line, and declared the present economic situation was particularly hard on tho younger members of farm families, particularly the children of tenants. Many of them he declared knew nothing but farming and often things developed so their parents could not even get a farm on which they could labor, Elmore R. Torn, agricultural director of the East Texas Chamber of Commerce, arrived in Corslca- na shortly before noon and addressed the meeting briefly, declaring Texas and particularly this section was faced with the necessity of going gack into livestock farming. He asserted most diets were deficient in the needed amount of meats. Ho predicted a now day for East Texas based on the employment of livestock' farm ing, E. R, Eudaly, dairyman for the Texas A. and M. College Extension Service, was the concluding speaker on the morning program He recalled other efforts to Instal livestock farming aid declare! they had generally failed because of the lack of knowledge and the lack of feed, adding many farmers apparently, expected cattle to thrive and produce on "sunshine and scenery" because that was about all they ever fed them. He declared the most Important factor In the movement was the reducing of th.e production costs to the point a neat profit could be made, Production costs, according to Mr. Eudaly, can only be reduced by the establishment of perma nent pastures, and, the Insurance of ample auxiliary feed during the periods when green food was no available. Contrasted with the Ideas of some Texas' farmers, tho speaker pointed out the most val uable lands in .other agrlcultura sections ware the permanent pas tures and not the cultivated lands He declared the feed supply mus first be establlshd and then the livestock farming could be easily and. quickly placed on a profit basis. Net Proceeds Final Test. He insisted the price of the farm products was not essentla but the net proceeds per acre was the final test. As a means of Insuring 'ample feed during the offseason, when green pasturage was not available the speaker urged the use o trench s.ilos which he said could be utilized in every type of soil an< under all conditions and were al waya fireproof, rodent proof, am their contents would not deteriorate, lie Insisted the trench silos were not new but were used in Egypt .8,000 years ago, and are still being used there. He pointed out that in Denmark, which SCHOLARSHIP CLUB SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL ANNOHO FRIOAY Members of the Scholarship Club of the Coriloana High school 'or the fall term have been announced by O. P.

The vote, considered a measure of administration strength, was 47 to 48. President Roosevelt had urged an $875,000,000 appropriation to carry on work relief for the next five months. His senate lieutenants worked energetically for that amount. The house voted a $725,000,000 appropriation and tho senate appropriations committee approved the house amount. The senate group however Inserted a provllson that If an emergency arose, Mr. Roosavelt could request additional funds. Because of that proviso, Senator Hatch (D-NM) had asserted tho whole senate fight over the appropriation was a tempest In a teapot.' Tho senate proceeded to consider other amendments to tho bill before a final ballot on the measure to supply WPA with funds until June 30. After passage, the bill would return to the house for agreement to the senate amendments, or a conference between tho two branches to. reconcile differences. Barkley Predicted Restoration of Cut WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.-<ff)Senator Barkley of Kentucky, the democratic leader, predicted today the senate would grant President Roosevelt's request for $875,000,000 for relief, by from three to six votes. Barkley's prediction was made as the senate prepared to vote at 2 p.m, (CST) 'on. an amendment to increase a proposed $725,000,000 relief appropriation to the $875,000,000 figure. One prominent republican said that "It looks as though the administration will be victorious." Defense, like relief had a high place on the consrojslonal program. President Roosevelt asked congress for an Immediate appropriation of $50,000,000 to be spent largely for now planes. Congressional circles' also pondered the significance of the chief executive's statement at a press conference that United States' aircraft manufacturers had agreed, with this government's know ledge, to supply France with an undeslgnatod number of war planes. Both Sides Work Hard In the fight over relief, leaders of both sides worked feverishly to get all their supporters In the chamber for the vote. Acceptance of the house reduction would mean congress would appropriate $725,000,000 to operate the WPA until July 1. Approval of the larger figure—$875,000,000— probably would require a compromise between the house and sen' ate totals. Economy-minded senators charged the administration forces have been killing time with speechmaking- the last two days In an effort tb boster their strength. "This has been a very unusual spectacle," said Senator Clark (D-Mo). "It has been an old- fashioned filibuster In behalf of a bill Instead of against one." Senator Barkley (D-Ky) the democratic floor loader, assorted there had been no plan to delay the measure, and that various senators merely had wished to make speeches. In yesterdays debate—the most vigorous since consideration of the relief bill started Tuesday- several members engaged in sharp exchanges. Political Activity. Senator Adams (D-Colo) spoke In ahfiry tones when he said that WPA employes were being urged to telegraph senators In support of an $875,000,000 appropriation. On two floors of the WPA headquarters here, Adams said, bulletins were posted bearing the words; "Spend 25 cents. Send a telegram to your senator today. Protest WPA appropriations cuts Protest civil service ban on WPA employes. Protect your Job " Adams said the bulletins also Included a "specimen telegram." Senator McKellar (D-Tenn), an advocate of the larger appropriation, hurried to a phone to question Col. F. C. Harrington, WPA administrator. He reported shortly that Harrington sold he had no knowledge of tho bulletins and that he was sorry it had been posted. Later, WPA local Number 1 United Federal Worken of America (CIO) Issued a statement saying that representatives of the union had posted the telegram forms "on social bulletin boards which are reserved for union notices exclusively." WASHINGTON, Jon. 27.—<flV- Appomlment of Dr. James L, McCamy, professor of government at Bennington College, Behnlng- wn, Vt, as assistant to Secretary Wallace was announced today. Dr. McCamy, a native of Knoxville, Tenn., will take over on February 1 the post formerly hold by R. M. Evans, now asrloultural adjustment administrator. The new assistant Is a graduate and former instructor at the Universities of Texas and Chicago, He has been a member of the Bennington College faculty since Iuo4t ' WASHINGTON, "Jan. 27.-W— Both Texas senators, Morris Sheppard and Tom Connally, voted with the administration today In its vain effort to increase the $725,000,000 Two republicans, Borah and Prazlor, voted likewise. White Man Charged With Being Vagrant . A whits rnan was arrested Friday morning by Deputy Sheriff Jeff Spencer in the western section of town and was fined $1 and cosjs Friday afternoon by Judge CHICAGO, Jan. 27,—W—Next Juno's high school sweet girl graduate will have onp chance In three of getting married within five years and two chances In five of going to work within one year. If she goes to work Immediately upon finishing school she jrobably will bo married at a ater date than her non-working sister and will run a greater risk of being divorced than she. would f she did not work outside the home. These conclusion* were reported today by a group of sociologists leaded by Lylo M. Spencer, director of science research associates. Tho later was organized recently to undertake long range occupational outlook survey designed to keep American youth 'rom training for non-existent lobs 'and to guide thorn Into Industrial channels which offer bettor opportunities work. for going to Sketching from various data a biography of tho future, of the average girl finishing school this June, the soclaloglsts also concluded she has one chance In ten of working after she Is married. They reported that whllo "hold- Ing down A job does not appear to Interfere seriously with a girls chance of getting married," it docs Increase, tho probabilities of her divorce. "At present levels," they said "about one marriage out of every five now bolng contracted will probably end In divorce, and working wives get far more than their share. "This Is partly duo to their feeling of Independence gained from knowing that they are capable of earning their own living. Part can also be attributed to the changed living conditions occurring when both husband and wife are gone from tho homo all day."

Jturt Phone roue Want Ad to 188, BIRMINGHAM, Jan. 28. )—Prime Minister Chamberlain tonight lined up with President Roosevelt against any "demand to dominate the world by force" and told Europe's dictators that "it is time now" that they have made a contribution to world peace. The prime minister, speaking at home town dinner given by tho Birmingham Jewelers' Association, looked ahead to a critical week which may show pallnly whether the world Is moving toward war or peace. He puld a markedly warm tribute to Premier Mussolini If Italy without whose co-operation during- the September war scare he said "I do not believe peace could have been saved." His only reference to Relchs- feuhrer Hitler was In a mention of the British-German peace declaration signed at Munich Sept. 30, the day after Czechoslovakia was dismembered. . After noting the desire of British, French, Italian and German peoples to live at peace, tho prime minister added significantly: "I do not exclude the possibility that these feelings of tho peoples may not always be shared by their governments and I recognize that it Is with governments and not peoples that we have to deal." Widespread Fcnr Exists, Chamberlain acknowledged the existence of widespread fears about the intentions of Europe's totalitarian leaders—fears which ho said "ought not to be allowed to persist. "For peace could only be endangered by such a challenge as was envisaged by the president of the United States In his Now Year message, namely, n demand to dominate the world by force. "That would be a demand which as tho •president Indicate and 'I myself have already declared, tho democracies must Inevitably ru- slst. "But I cannot believe that any such challenge Is Intended." Chamberlain urged his hearers to "go forward to meet the future with the calm courage which enabled our ancestors to win through their troubles a century and a quarter ago"—In the Napoleonic wars. Ths strain of present day government, re said, could be borne only by "a young follow like myself." i To his nudlence of businessmen ha admitted that "a certain amounnt of political tension In International affairs x x x undoubt- edl yls holding back enterprise." Notice to Hitler. And In what wna Interpreted as an Invitation to Hitler to bo conciliatory In his Monday speech before the German relohstag Chamberlain added: "I feel that It Is time now that others should make their contribution to a result which would over- tlow with benefits to all." Reiterating the past week's ministerial statements that Brltlan is rapidly manning her defences, the* prime minister, said 60 new warships, representing about 130,000 tons, would be Joined to the navy during the year ending March 81, 1930. The figure for the year ending March 81, 1040, would be 76 ships totaling 150,000 tons, ho said.

Jan. 38.—(«V- Tho aonato approved unanimous- y today a series of amendments o the $726,000,000 deficiency re- Ifif bill designed to prevent po- Itlcal use of federal funds. The amendment, sponsored by Senator Hatch (D-NM) would an- ily In pnrt to relief funds only and In part to all federal expenditure)) and all government em- payees. Similar proposals were lefoatod by the senate after a hot battle last year. One of the amendments would nake It unlawful for any person o promise a. fedora! job as a reward for political activity or po- Itlcal support Another would prohibit any su- lervlaory or administrative em- >!oya paid out of this year'» re- let funds to threaten to deprive any other person of relief bene- Its. No supervisory or administrative officer paid out of relief funds could use his position to Influence results of an election nor could any such official take an active mvt In political management or n political campaigns. Another provision would make t unlawful for any one to solicit political contributions from any employe paid out of federal' funds.

The amendments must have ap- irovnl of the house of represen- atives before they can become aw. Soon after, the senate began consideration of a house-approved ^revision to limit to 25 per cent ho difference In WPA rates for ho same classes of work In dlf- Cerent states or regions. Senators Russell (D-Ga) olted WPA figures to show that pay to msklllcd WPA labor ranged from 18 cents an hour In Tennessee to $1.02 1-2 In Illinois. "I assert there Is no way you can possibly justify any such tremendous discrimination," Russell said. Jubilant senators who opposed a $150,000,000 Increase In the $725.000,000 bill expressed their appreciation, meanwhile, of aid given by Vice President Garner In tholr successful fight. Senators who supported President Roosevelt's request for $875,)00,000 to run WPA through June 30—expressed certainty the Chief Executive, denied the full sum now, would ask congress for more ater. Mr. Roosevelt lost In the senate this time by only one vote. As for Garner, opponents of the $150,000,000 boost said he had worked with them behind the scones. Ho was In a cabinet meeting during the senate's roll call yesterday, and friends aatd afterward he was delighted at the vote but maintained a "poker face." Democratic Leader Barkley countered that "it's Just as sure, as the sunrise tomorrow" that Mr. Roosevelt will ask for a supplemental WPA fund In the spring. Would Remain Bame, • "Under the bill," Barkley added, 'The relief rolls will be retained at about the present 3,000,000 ev- el during February and March, but a precipitate drop would occur the first of April. The President early In March will have to aak for an extra $160,000,000 to prevent that sharp decline." The see-saw roll call completed a rebuff to the administration On the session's first major legislation. Mr. Roosevelt In a special message had asked for $878,000,000 to operate the WPA until July 1. An economy-minded house committee chopped $160,000,000 from the appropriation. The house agreed to the reduction without a roll call. Then the senate appropriations committee followed suit. Admin- Istration forces and advocates of th « smaller 'fund— the latter Included republicans and a score of democrats—Jockeyed all week tar the advantage in the senate 'It- There was no doubt among the anti-new dealers and little among administration supporters that the 47 to 46 rejection amounted to a storm warning for future congressional action on some other white house proposals, especially those concerning approprla- Members of the senate "economy bloc were plainly. Jubilant over the outcome, but several asroed with Barkloy that Mr. Roosevelt would ask for more money later. REP. L. A.
