The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Pec. 2,1937 The MARCH OF TIME ~ no.0. t.UT.O*r. Prepared by the Editors of TIME The Weekly Newtmafatlnt FIRST DATS OF NEW CONGRESS WASHINGTON: When the 75th Congress met for the first time last January, the country was comparatively prosperous, Franklin Roosevelt had just been resoundingly endorsed at the polls, and the New Deal had a huge Democratic majority in both houses. When the 75th Congress reconvened last week In a special session, ostensibly to enact the ambitious program outlined by the president in his fireside chat six weeks ago, New Deal ranks split by last winter's court plan fight were still sharply divided; and the president's popularity, despite his triumphal tour of the West this fall, seemed subject to recheck. Most Important of all, what had looked six weeks ago like a minor reaction on the New Tork Stock Exchange had developed into a major business recession which was not only the longest since 1933, but one of the sharp- I\ tot In U. a economic hlitory. What Conjrm would accomplish In thli second session was^tlll unpredictable last week, but twq things at least looked certain v under the stimulus of Recession, Congress was likely to show an independence toward the White House unprecedented since 1933; and both Vice President John Nance Garner In the Senate and Speaker William Bankhead In the House were going to have their hands full making Congress do much of anything T>e- fore it moves to adjourn, presumably about December 18. Cut down to four Stems when he omitted mod- ernised antitrust legislation In his opening message, the president's program called for legislation on crop control, wages and hours, reorganization of the executive branch of the government and regional planning. Farm Bin: After a week of feverish work, the subcommittees finally had a farm bill ready to report which the full committee was expected to bring in at last week's end. Based on regional hearings held before the session started, It Included provisions for control by the Department of Agriculture of five major crops: wheat, corn, cotton, tobacco and rice. Wheat and corn acreage and marketing quotas would be based on the aim of giving a bushel of either the same purchasing power It had between 1909 and 1914. The government would Impose on every bushel sold over Department of Agriculture marketing quotas a penalty tax of 50 per cent of its price—provided that, In a referendum before the scheme goes into effect, two thirds of the farmers affected approve the plan. Secretary Wallace's ever-normal granary would apply to both crops: the government would begin to buy wheat for use In periods of scarcity when the supply is 10 per cent above normal, corn when it reaches normal. For cotton and tobacco farmers, the bill provided both penalties for over-production and bounty payments toYneourage them to divert unneeded land to other uses; for rice, quotas were set on the basis of domestic consumption. Honra-Wagm Bill, giving the Federal government power to regulate maximum hours and minimum wages In U. S. Industry, was passed by the Senate just before It adjourned last August. In the House, the bill hit a snag in the potent rules committee, which can at least temporarily prevent passage of any bill Ly not giving a rule to bring it up for debate and which, since It Includes a majority of four republicans and five democrats from the south whose industrialization depends on low wages, was last week as unwilling as ever to let the bill reach the floor. Only means of getting It there in this session appeared to be a petition to discharge the committee, which must be signed by 218 of the House's 435 members. Labor Committee's Chairman Mary T. Norton, having got 153 signatures on such a petition, was this week faced with a growing oppos- ition to the bill. Although both Secretary Perkins and John L. Lewis had urged its-early adoption, William Green flatly announced the A. F. of L.'a opposition to the bill in its present form. Executive Reorganization was represented in the senate by one bill; in the House by four, two of which were passed last summer. Reorganization's chance of passage this session was exceedingly small. Regional Planning—the administration measure to set up seven little TVAs throughout the land—was being extensively modified to the prospective advantage of private utility companies and, according to leaders in both Houses last week, was "still in the exploratory stage." Exploration was being conducted by the House Rivers and Harbors Committee from which Speaker Bankhead last week said he expected a report "sooner than anticipated." Taxes. In the Senate last week, 19 of the 20 members of the Senate Finance Committee went on record for modifying the undistributed profits tax. Strongest opposition to the tax came from the Committee's Chairman Pat Harrison who, having failed by one vote to beat Kentucky's Alben Bferkley for* the Senate Democratic Leadership last summer, no longer feels any inhibitions about speaking out on fiscal policies-which may or may not have presidential favor. In the House the uproar about taxes was more lively than the senate's, more likely to have reasonably prompt consequences. Most pertinent words on the subject In which U. S. business was most Interested came from Chairman Fred M. Vlnson of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Taxation, which had tentatively approved exempt- Ing all corporation Incomes of $5,000 or less from the undistributed profits tax. Representative Vinson, seconded by the Ways and Means Committee's Chairman Robert Lee Doughton, mnde it clear that tax legislation would not be ready for action in the special session. Said Chairman Doughton: "I think It would take just as long to get a part of the program through as to do all of It I don't object to consideration at the special session, but 1 don't think we can get the bill ready in time." CONTOUR OF A LEO WASHINGTON: Sitting on a hosiery patent infringement suit, Bachelor-Associate Justice James Clark McReynoIds last week asked: "What does 'full-fashioned' mean?" Answered Benedict-Associate Justice Owen Josephus Roberts: "It means that a stocking is made to fit th e contours of the leg. 1 WITH ENGLAND— A TREATY TRADE WASHINGTON—Most frequent criticism of the Trade Agreements Act of 1934, under which Secretary of State Cordell Hull has patiently woven a network of reciprocal trade treaties with 18 foreign countries, Is that tariff concessions granted to any signatory country are automatically extended to 70 odd non- signatory countries with which the U. S. has "most favored nations' agreements. From Free Trader Hull's standpoint, this is the strongest point of his policy since generalizing concessions tends to Increase the volume of world trade. But it has given many a Hull critic an opportunity to argue that with U. S. tariffs favors so lightly won the non- signatory nations of the world will not feel the need to give as well as take. Secretary Hull and Britain's Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain last week announced simultaneously that a U. S.-Britaln reciprocal trade agreement was ready to be hatched. Specifically, Mr. Hull asked all interested parties to submit to the State Department's Committee for Reciprocity Information by December 16 their suggestions for bargaining. But neither cau- tious M. Hull or cautious Mr. Chamberlain would have made these preliminary announcements unless each had the end of the negotiations in sight; hence friends of Secretary Hull joyously proclaimed that Great Britain, the biggest foreign customer of the U. S. and thus the belatr ed keystone of the Hull reciprocal arch, was for all practical purposes already In place. During the past year, discussion of the keystone treaty has proceeded at a tepid pace with Secretary Hull frankly In the Suitor's role, and Great Britain favorable to an agreement but hesitant fo disturb the network of preference agreements with her Dominions. Aim of the U. S. bargainers will be to reverse the trend which carried U. S. exports to Great Britain from $848,000,000 in 1929 to $440,122,000 last year.

An Inside Job Obsolete to Modern The Old and tlie new There are a lot of homes in Algona where we know the inside arrangement or finish is not entirely to the liking of the families living in them. Some are simply out of date. Others are outgrown by growing families. If your home is among these, and yon would like to change or improve the inside in any way, we invite yon to let ns help yon plan the changes. It's easy for ns to visualize changes and deter- miine qnickly if they can be madq, and the cost. Such jobs can be done just as easily in the cold weather and their benefits enjoyed,during the long winter. See us or jdione us this week for an appointment at your home to go over with you any improvements you would like to make. F. S. Norton & Son ATTORNEYS AT LAW R. J. Harrington J. D.

No kicking, no faultfinding, just words of cheer and encouragement from the many customers of Neville's store. They say pride goeth before a fall, but even if I fall down next year I cannot refrain from being proud of the splendid business we have done this year. In fifty years of merchandising I have seen a good many ups and downs. Some lean years, some good ones. Some years that have made money, some that I broke even and a few where I lost money. Even when in the dumps I never asked the other business men in town to chip in on some scheme that would help me out I always got out as I went in, on my own volition. In building up a permanent business I find that Bargains, real values are much better than any kind of trickery. The public has a bargain complex. They want their money's wprth and a little more. Every day you hear customers in Neville's store saying I bought these shoes here a year ago and am back after another pair. Hearing this kind of talk I know my business is on a sound foundation. You can not build a business on shoddy goods, nor on trick advertising. Many a merchants puts a big ad in the paper with plenty blow and bluster, but forgets to reduce his regular high prices when customers call at the store. At Neville's store you will not find any over represeut- s,tion. You will not find a lot of service or soft talk, but you will find Bargain*. Values that your own eyes and judgment will make you buy. You will not luive to be coaxed. Jimmie Neville /CHEVROLET'S beautiful new Modem-Mode \Jt Styling —Chevrolet's luxuriously comfortable Knee-Action Ride* —Chevrolet's fleet, powerful performance—all combine to make Chevrolet for 1938 the most distinguished car in its price range. But what places this new Chevrolet so far ahead of even high-priced automobiles as a wise investment is its remarkable economy of first cost, operation and upkeep. You'll save money by driving a Chevrolet, because it's much more economical in all ways; and you'll be better satisfied, too, because Chevrolet is the only low-priced car with all the modern features which identify it as the car that ia complete.
