"But it wasn't at all funny then." In those days Henry was a tired, hungry man. He was farming near the tiny town of Rolla, N. D., without even enough money to buy a tire for his beaten-up old truck. Big Man in Prairie Town "All we did was wait for rains that never came," he said. "All of Bottineau county was just a desolate waste of Russian thistles." Year after year he and his partner, Bill Shaffer, borrowed money like the rest of the farmers to stave off creditors. And they waited for crops that never seemed to come. Finally they had a fairly good year. Littld by little Henry and the other farmers made a comeback. * »:g The good crops got better every This year was the best of year. all.

Besides that, he's vice-president of got off to a bad start with western voters when he tripped over that old political stumbling block, the Colorado rixer. Innocently Bob scheduled a two-day air inspection trip of Colorado river projects under the auspices of the i Colorado River Board of California. This is a state agency dominated largely by wealthy growers. Nothing could have made neighboring western state more indignant, for they regard California as a neighborhood bully whose *reater size gives her a loud voice in interstate affairs. To provide water for her growing population and thirsty farmlands, they claim, California has helped herself lavishly from the all-important Colorado -- at the expense of other western states. Credit for this political boner ·roes to California Senator Bill Knowland, long jealous of the dominant role his Democratic colleague, Sheridan Downey, has played in pushing California's water ambitions. To offset it, Knowland arranged for his friend Senator Taft to travel under the aegis of California in visiting the Colorado river. , Too late, Taft's office realized the mistake.

Maddest of all over the Taft boner is the famous novelist, Arizona's state GOP chairman, Clarence Buddington Kelland, former Republican publicity mogul and an important leader among wcst-j ern Reublicans. Note--Despite the fact that Taft and Republican senators passed a special act of Congress changing the name of "Boulder Dam" to "Hoover Dam," Taft's press release made the glaring mistake of stating that he would inspect the "Boulder Dam area." BRITISH GOLD-(IIORSE)- TRADING Foreign Minister Bevin's proposal that the USA give England back some of our gold has only made U. S. monetary officials mad. They recall the fact that the British have a habit of selling us a commodity once, then taking it back and soiling it to us again--as for instance with Empire preference. In the case of gold, some people may not realize that most of the gold we buy comes from the British--chirfly South Africa. If we quit bu^ng gold. British gold mines wou! 1 really be out of luck. But h.-.ving sold us the gold. the British now which means, of want it back, course, they would sell it to us a second time. For we are one of the few countries where they can exchange goods for gold today. Selling us the same commodity over and over again was what happened with Empire preference.
