I|>wa County, Is Prospering Without It By BRUCE UATTOS NEA Service Writer ELKADER, la.—The great Iowa corn belt, 'where tile farmers have been crying for help so Ions thai their voices me till husky, has une county (hat cares no more about, Inrm relief than It ceres about the Einstein theory. This Is Clayton coiinly, a rarity among rarities—a strictly agriciil- lilgh'way commission for road construction. This money Is sufficient, to pay the Interest on the county's bonds and retire them in 20 years. Incidentally, $500,000 of this bond issue is held by Clayton county fanners. "The average estate left by a Clayton .county fanner at death Is 530,000," snys Muruliy. "There's hardly a oiic (hat will be us low ASKS AID FOR ST.FRANCIS VALLEY as $10,000.

Clayton county, as fnr as per capita wealth is concerned, is said to be the richest county in the Uniled States. It has 23.000 inhabitants and they are all making money. Its automobiles average belter than or.e lo a family. The citizens have opposed tho McNary-Haughen bill because they don't need relief. Considering the fact that Clayton county Is planked down In the middle of the region where agriculture has been groaning under a seven-year depression, this sounds almost unbelieveaule. But the fact remains that the farmers of this section have found out how to make agriculture pay. Crops Are Diversified C, F. Murphy, a leading attorney, explains it easily."In the first place." Ue says, "we have a very fine soil here—a productive clay loam, well watered and well drained. '"But our success Is primarily due to the fact that our agriculture is diversified. Our farmers raise all the kinds of crops that can be raised in the north temperate zone. . and they know how to rotate their crops so as to get the most out of the land. They raise poultry, swine, beef and dairy cattle and sheep— and everything that is raised here is'fed here. The stock feed is grown right on Cllyton. .county farms."' The average Clayton county farm as about 160 acres in size. A farmer will lay aside a 40-acre patch for pasture land for his stock. Another 40-acre patch will be devoted to raising hay. A third patch of the same size will be sowed with small gran—oat*, barley, wheat or rye—and a fourth 40-acre patch will be planted with corn. At the end of the year the farmer simply moves part way around this square. The field, that was planted to grain lies fallow and serves as a pasture lot. Tile field that was pasture lot will be planted with corn. The former cornfield will be planted with hay. The former hay field will be sown with grain. So it goes, year after year —and thc soli keeps its productivity undiminished. Farm Bureau Aids Clayton county farmers also take full advantage of the state farm bureau here in Elkader, the county seat. Roy Combs, county agent, has taught the farmers here the value of co-operatives and has helped them lo use sciendfic crop methods. 'He has organized a great number of cow-testing associations. A tester visits each farm once a motnh, testing each cow's milk for its buttcrfnt. He advices the farmer on the kind of feed that Is needed and helps him to make his dairy herd as productive as possible. There are 15 co-operative creameries In the county, and 19 co-operative livestock shipping ossocla- . tlons. which handle 90 per cent of • the county's livestock sales—some 3500 cars of slock a year. There are co-operative fed-grinding mills In very town. Thc result of all of this is that the agricultural operation has bothered this county very little. If old Own Slortages To begin with, 75 per cent of all mortgages on Clayton county farms are held within the county Thus, when the depression came and the eastern Investment houses began to call their farav paper Clayton county escaped such a slid <!en demand on its resources. Its banks gave extension, fully con dent that they would get thei money. "Our farmers got a continuou Income," says Murphy. "And thcy'r mighty good business people, lot o1'them have regular account Ing systems, just like city bus ness houses. There are plenty o farms here with $50,000 worth o buildings on them. Practically ev cry family owns an automobile, am lots of them have two or three, an 3. truck besides. There hasn't bee a bankruptcy in Elkader In 30 years, and mighty few anywhere In the county'. We've never had a bank failure—and we're In the middle of the corn belt, if you please." Clayton county has only $!,600.000 In bonded indebtedness—a bond issue floated not long ago to provide paved roads, but this bond Issue is not costing Clayton county anything. Each year Ihe county Rets certain sum from the state ty, with nearly $14,000.000 in posits. Dr. Marion A. Boggs, poster of (he First Presbyterian church.:since October, 1925, will accept the' call to the pastorate of the First Presbyterian church at Hot Springs. His resignation, which will formally be presented lo Iho congregation a week from Sunday, will take effect February 28 and he will'begin his new work Marcli 1. At 'the meeting of the session or the loca church last night, Ihe pastor announced his decision. Dr. Hoggs' acceptance of tho cal! ^ farinV, 'the eo'unt -is owned * not unexpected. After extending hv din imn who oncrates it ten- the ca " several montlis ago, a com- anl faring being almost non-ex- mlttee of four from the Hot Springs ta'inl Tte value of butter" ^o- «™«\ S ?™L™L^'..,^L^ duccd in thc county In 1920 was $2,467.000. The average monthly income of the farmers BS a group Is upwards of $205,000. Two years ago the county's farm lands were given an assessed value of more than $28,000,000. SO there's Clayton county for you—a strictly agricultural community where the average of individual prosperity is higher t'.ian In any other county in the land. . Small Fortune Inherited By Local Woman Wisconsin Executive, Victor Over La Follette Fac- ..tio'n, Loses in High Court MADISON, WIs., Feb. 4. (UP) The Wisconsin stale supreme cour ruled today that Governor Walte J. Kohler must face ouster action In the circuit court on charges o excessive expenditures in Ms cam paign for governor. Reversing a circuit court decis ion 'the supreme court overruled demurrer to the ouster action an sent the case back for trial in th lower court. Judge James Wick ham of the circuit court held un constitutional that part of the state corrupt- practices which provides for removal of a governor without impeachment. The oiLster action against Governor Kohler, the millionaire manufacturer who conducted his campaign by airplane, siarled soon after his inauguration last year. Four LaPollette progressive Republicans, whose candidate Kohler had defeated as the regular Republican n-minec in the primary, started the move. They appealed to state attorney general John Reynolds for permission (o bring proceedings to determine whether Kohler had violated the corrupt practices act by his expenditures in the primary campaign. The basis of this peli- on was a charge lhat Kohler al- owed to be spent more than $100,000 in his behalf, thus violating thc :ate law. when the matter was person- lly presented to him. At that lime, he Rev. Boggs said he would give n answer within a week. Since Mr. Boggs came here Irom Dermotl, Ark., he has received sev- ral calls to larger churches In the tatc among which was one of the itrongcst churches In Little Rock. n every Instance he had refused he promotions because of his de- iire to go on with his program in .he local church. In the lour years anil four months he has been here, his program has been successfully carried out under his direct, leadership. Members of the congregation, when Interviewed today, stated without an exception that they were delighted that this honor had come to Dr. floggs and felt that his religious work will be richly rewarded in a larger field.

In replacing the former president with the man who Just mlrsed the presidency in. 1918 President Hoover has not changed the general complexion of the court. Hughes is regarded as a conservative of the same sort, as Taft and the line-up still will bo six conservatives against three liberals, the latter being Justices Holmes, Brandels and Stone.
