President Roosevelt, in appoint Ing the committee, asked It to study methods for federal aid in solvlw the farm tenancy problem. The Resettlement Administration al- ieady has made .a start through purchase of farms for 1.000 tenants. Cash AM Not Answer Wallace.told the conference thai purchase of farms for tenants ii desirable but thai this can make "only a small, start'' toward answering the problem 'which must be solved "if the civilization of the United states is to remain secure.' . It would take ah annual appropriation of $160,632.000 to halt the growth of. tenancy, increased by lhe depression, by the purchase of farms, Wallace said. If some Way would be found to halt tlie increase, he declared. It would take 230 years of.animal'fed- eral appropriations at $50,000.000 for purchase of .farms at $4.000 each to wipe out present tenancy. •Wallaee.suggestcd the commute; :••"• study means of improving relatlon- •, .ships' between tenants and farm .! owner's., Using the prevailing sys- ( tern, hj SBtld, the ^tenant haiTno as • siirarice.-'that- -niiy":' improvements '. wiilch hot makes will be of ally ben ct'it .to him.'!

True, he Is walking with the aid of crutches, artificial legs and braces, but he is actually walking— slowly, step by step.

' • Now the stump of one leg has been .fitted .with an artificial leg With the aid of crutches, Is walk- Ing- upright He has hopes that he'll be able to throw away his crutches some day and walk, possibly with the aid .of nothing more than a itoUl cane For Ernast. there's something: fine fcbout being able lo talk face to uee with others— without forever looking up. And there's a real story of courage and tenacity of purpose In Glenn's long fight to obtain the necessary funds lo' secure the costly. braces after 20. months in bed and months of living at the county poor farm, from place to place and around the fire station at the city hall— but he prefers lo keep that parl to himself right now But Ernest savs he does want to thank his friends, the 'merchants, officials Livestock EAST ST.
