LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX. IOWA Pickard pap" Vntm Howard R. Tolley Farm Leaders Insist on Crop Control Legislation F ARM lenders summoned to Washington to help in devising n new farm program decided to remain there and "picket" the halls of congress until legislation is passed to take the place of the AAA destroyed by the Supreme court ruling. The proposal that was the first plank in the policy platform they drew up and that is pushed by administration men centers on production control through subsidized soil conservation. Farmers would get cash grants, provided they had permitted the transfer of certain acreage from commercial production to soil conserving crops, or had "adjusted" the commodities on certain land. Administration leaders were considering a plan to raise the half million dollars a year necessary for this scheme by enacting most of the old processing taxes as excise levies. The farm leaders, favored this, and also recommended: "Retention and strengthening of all positions of the AAA act not declared unconstitutional. "Creation of farm commodity cooperatives, authorized under the Capper-Volstead act, for marketing or distributing farm products." Foremast among the agricultural experts who took part In the conferences was Howard R. Tolley, director of the Giannini foundation in California. He has been described by administration officials ns the lending agricultural economist in the United States, and was hurriedly called from the West coast to Washington. Lawyers acting for a Philadelphia real estate dealer filed a suit In the Federal District court there to restrain government executives from interfering with the operation of the AAA until its constitutional status has been determined by referendum^ losses through security sales to each other In 1029 nnd thus Improperly reduced their net taxable incomes. "Tyranny and cheap politics" was the way Raskob characterized the action, 'and he intimated that the brief was timed to appear before the American Liberty league dinner January 25 at which Alfred E. Smith will be chief speaker. Both Raskob, a conservative Democrat, nnd du- Pont ore liberal backers of the Liberty league, which has been saying ninny severe things about the New Deal. In Its latest output the Liberty league attacks President Roosevelt's interpretations of the fiscal situation ns "misleading and deceitful," nnd urges that congress investigate "the entire governmental structure." The league says if any corporation should offer a statement under the securities nnd exchange act "ns deceptive and confusing as the President's budget message It would be prosecuted under the penal section of the statute." Democratic Convention Goes to Philadelphia A UCTIONED off to the highest •i* bidder, the Democratic national convention of 1936 was sold to Philadelphia by the party's national committee. The price was $200,000, plus some prizes and concessions. Chicago and San Francisco also bid for the convention. The former offered a certified check for .$100,000. The California city made the same bid nnd later raised it to $202,000. During a brief recess Chairman Farley telephoned, presumably to the White House, nnd Vice President Garner moved among members of the committee urging the selection of Philadelphia. Therefore the City of Brotherly Love won the prize. The opening of the convention was set for June 23, two weeks after the Republican convention in Cleveland. Process Tax Refund Ordered by Supreme Court P ROCESSING taxes amounting to $200,000,000, impounded by the courts, must be refunded to the taxpayers, according to a unanimous ruling of the Supreme court of the United States. The decision did not go into the question of whether processors must prove they had absorbed the tax before they could recover, though this was one of the main points at Issue. Presumably this will first be passed upon by a district court. The case was brought by Louisiana rice millers. The nine Justices all agreed that the review of the Bankhead cotton act case, which had been allowed on a 0 to 3 vote, had been "improv- Jdently granted" and so they refused to pass on the validity of the act at this time. Another case Involving this law, filed by Gov. Eugene Talmadge of Georgia, a Roosevelt administration foe, will give the court another opportunity to rule on It. The expected ruling on the valid- Jty of the Tennessee Valley Authority act was not forthcoming. Rains in Ethiopia Stop the Italian Operations E THIOPIA'S "little" rainy season hns come, and the advances of the Invading Italians are therefore stopped effectually for several weeks at least. The downpours are heavy and continuous, roads are being destroyed, especially in the northern part of tiie country, and landslides In the mountains are frequent. Foreign observers were of the opinion that all fighting must cease, even in the south where the rains are not so heavy. The "big" rainy season is due to begin in May. Tiie Kthloplan chieftains have been loyally obeying the instructions of the emperor to kill time nnd avoid being drawn into battle, and now even the most Impatient of them admit the ruler's wisdom. Mussolini continued to dispatch fresh troops to Ethiopia, despite unfavorable conditions. He postponed the meeting of the Fascist grand council from January 18 to February 1, by which time the League of Nations council, It is presumed, will decide whether to Impose an oil embargo on Italy. The league council would very much like to have the United States congress pass its neutrality legislation before the oil embargo question is settled. Dr. Marcel Junod, International Red Cross delegate, announced at Addis Ababa that he would recommend withdrawal of ail Red Cross units from Ethiopia unless Italy definitely promises not to bomb them. Nye's Committee Prods Morgan and Lament W ITH the obvious intention of building up public sentiment in favor of the special brand of neutrality legislation he desires, Senator Nye hod before his senate munitions committee for several days J. P. Morgan, Thomas W. Lament and other members of the great Morgan banking company.

HOPKINS, WPA administrator, has sent to state administrators a set of regulations intended to protect WPA workers from "chiseling" employers and to keep up wage standards. Tn his letter to the state oflicials Mr. Hopkins said : "I want to make perfectly clear the policy of the works progress administration relative to private employment or employment on contract jobs under the direction of other federal departments which may be offered the WPA workers. "It is expected that WPA workers will accept available Jobs in private employment, whether of a perrna nent or temporary nature, provided: "(1) That the temporary or permanent work shall be a full-time Job. "(2) That such work shall be at a standard or going rate of wages. "(8) That such work shall not be In conflict with established union re latlonships. "(4) That workers shall be offered un opportunity to return to thftj Vjn?A upon completion of tem- pcirury jobs." Hauptmann Still Fights Against Execution B RUNO HAUPTMANN, due to die in the electric chair January 17 for the kidnaping and murder of the Lindbergh baby, continued, througSi his legal counsel his fight to save his life. If the attitude of Governor Hoffman of New Jersey was rightly reported, there was a possibility that the condemned man would at least obtain a reprieve; but the state court of pardons, of which the governor is a member, had unanimously refused to commute the sentence to one of life Imprisonment after examining tho alleged new evidence in Bruno's favor. Defense counsel were said to be preparing to try to persuade the United States Supreme court to take some action in the case. When Hauptmann was told by C. Lloyd Fisher, one of his lawyers, that the court of pardons had rejected his plea he displayed no emotion. "Your only chance now is to directly involve some one else in the kidnaping," Fisher told Hauptmann. "I can't change my story," Hauptmann replied, according to the prison warden. "I have told the truth all along. There's nothing more to tell than I have told. I haven't the least idea where Flsch got that money from." and their Implications was long and complicated. The financiers were well prepared for the inquiry and were armed with a great quantity of documents, nnd though there was a great deal of acrimonious talk, Mr. Morgan appeared entirely unperturbed. S E< I Puerto Rican Sugar Estates Will Be Broken Up ECRBTARY OF THE INTERIOR ICKES, making a brief visit to our Caribbean possessions, told representatives of the sugar interests in Puerto Rico that the great sugar estates of that Island would be broken up, because they are in violation of a law forbidding the corporate ownership of more than 500 acres of land. He explained the lands will be homesteiuled to get thousands of landless persons back to the soil. It is not known whether Mr. Ickes did anything about the general dissatisfaction in Puerto Rico with the policies of certain of the government's representative? there. NATIONAL PRESS BLDG. \Vashlngton.-The dictionary says the word confusion means mixed Indiscriminately; Confusion disordered, d e Is the Word ranged; perplexed; bewl 1- dered, or disconcerted. There probably is no better word to describe the situation In Washington over the past three weeks than the word confusion. If one keeps an eye half open, one cannot help seeing all of the things mentioned In the dictionary definition of the word. There might be an addition. If I were to expand the definition and make It just a little more applicable to the circumstances In the national Capital, I would add "running around in circles." The reconvening of congress always Is a signal for commotion, and confusion and taut nerves. The opening sessions, nex "-theless, usually have been mild for a few days. The climax was reached by a gradual building up of excitement to the moment of the annual message of the President on the state of the Union. This time, however, the climax came quickly and Instead of a subsidence, as we usually have seen, the crest of the wave of excitement continued. If this Is a barometric prediction of what we may see In the forthcoming political campaign, there will he, indeed, a battle. That the picture of Washington confusion may be pieced together, let us review in briefest form some of the things that happened: Congress reconvenes at noon on a Friday—orders go from the White House to the Capitol that the President desires to deliver his annual speech on the state of the Union Immediately — arrangements are made promptly for n night session (the second of its kind in history) —President Roosevelt delivers a masterful discourse on international affairs, virtually naming names of autocratic rulers throughout the world and demanding that they cease arbitrary programs leading to war, and follows that with a plain political speech regarding domestic affairs, challenging New Deal opponents to undo what the New Deal administration had done—Republican National Chairman Fletcher bitingly attacks the political phases of the Roosevelt speech on the state of the Union and demands that radio broadcasting compariles give New Deal opponents the same time and the same stations for broadcasting a political answer— broadcasting company replies show n desire to be fair with radio time nnd toss back to Mr. Fletcher the difficult task of selecting individuals to answer Mr. Roosevelt. WASHING TON^&.C. help defray the deficit of^the Democratic National committee besides the cost of their dinners In the various sections of the country—Democratic National committee meets and selects Philadelphia as the site of the Democratic National convention, fixing June 23 ns the date after Philadelphia, with a certified check of $200,000, outbids all others to be host—Republican Chairman Fletcher issues denial that the Republican National committee had anything to do with the use of stamp stickers ridiculing the New Deal. Lobbyists for the ex-service men reach an agreement on the type of legislation for immediate cash payment of the bonus and the legislation passes the house — Senator Nye and his publicity seeking Senate Munitions Investigating committee take the partners of the house of Morgan over the grill in an attempt to show that this great financial Institution led the United States into the World war—Morgan's answer links officials of President Wilson's administration with the development of sentiment favorable to American participation on the side of the Allies—Senator Nye gains much publicity for himself and the neutrality bill which he sponsors in the senate—many new representatives of business arrive in Washington, open offices, prepare to fight against further New Deal encroachment upon private business. At the outset of this discussion, I suggested that if events of the BRISBANE THIS WEEK AAA le No More Who Will Pay Now?

Wrigley Jr. company, has nnnminnced a pension plan, for Its employees, effective at once. More than 1,300 employees are affected by the move. Under the Wrigley plan the company and employees contribute for future service pension on 'n fifty-fifty basis. The plan provides for employees to be retired at the age of sixty-five.

Hopkins Bonus Measure Is Pushed Through the House N O TIME was lost in putting through the house the bonus measure that had been agreed upon by veterans' organizations and approved by the ways and means committee. It carries the name of the Vinson-Patman-McCormack bill and is a compromise that authorizes immediate payment of the bonus but offers no definite plan for raising the money. It would provide 3 per cent interest until 1045 for veterans refraining from cashing their adjustment service certificates at once, and cancel all Interest still due on loans on the certificates. In the senate Pat Harrison introduced a compromise bonus bill providing for payment in $50 bonds that may be cashed upon demand.

I base that prediction upon the view taken of It by Postmaster General Farley, the king-pin Democratic politician and the reactions that have come editorially and in news columns to the President's Jackson day dinner speech and the political phases of his message on the state of the Union. Mr. Farley made no bones about the prospect. He foresees all kinds of mud slinging, misrepresentation nnd personal attacks. Aside from his statesmanlike discussion of international problems, Mr. Roosevelt's message to congress descended to the point where he was definitely cataloging all opposition to the New Deal as "greedy and selfish" men and women. Every one of them, In the President's opinion, has a personal ax of avarice to grind. Whether his conclusions are right or wrong is not In question here. The point Is that since Mr. Roosevelt has opened the fire In that manner, he can naturally expect the same type of fire to be returned. In the language of the twelve-year-old ruffian: "He asked for It." There was another striking thing about the Roosevelt speeches to congress nnd to the Jackson day diners. For the first time since he lias occupied the White House, he gave every evl dence of being nettled and nervous. He spoke In a voice that appeared to be tired; there was lacking that buoyancy, that smile, when he spoke that used to characterize his expressions. • * * Referring again to the two speeches, 1 have heard any number of observers com- Laying in e n t, first, o n His Lines hls almost tearful appeal at the conclusion of his speech to con- The question Is, Who will provide cash promised the farmers, since the Supreme court will not sanction the sales tax, disguised as a "press" tax?

TO RELICVINO ICOMiTlPATIOI A cleansing dose today; a smaller quantity tomorrow; less each time, until bowels need no help at all. The President's address "on the state of the Union" was, like nearly all Presidential speeches, an address on the state of the administration. Discussing danger of war, If It is true that "85 or 90 per cent of all the people in the world are content with the territorial limits of their respective nations," that would leave only 10 or 15 per cent of the aggressive type. Why do people come home from a hospital with bowels working like a well-regulated watch? The answer is simple, and it's the answer to all your bowel worries if you will only realize it: many doctors and hospitals use liquid laxatives. If you knew what a doctor knows, you would use only the liquid form. A liquid can always be taken in gradually reduced doses. Reduced dosage is the secret of any real relief from constipation. Ask a doctor about this. Ask your druggist how very popular liquid laxatives have become. They give the right kind of help, and right amount of help. The liquid laxative generally used is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It contains senna and cascara — both natural laxatives that can form no habit, even in children. So, try Syrup Pepsin. You just take regulated doses till Nature restores regularity. PARKER'S HAIR BALSAM Refflovea DandrnlT-StopB Hair Polling Impart* Color and Beauty to Gray and Faded Hair 60c and $1 00 at Druegista.

I um not making any predictions as to where this trend will lead. It is important to note, however, that it is an old political trick to impugn the motives of the opposition, was the mood into which former President Herbert Hoover fell when in 1931 it became apparent that his political life was on the skids nnd slipping fast. When he was "on his way out" Mr. Hoover became so picayunlsh that even his own associates found it difficult to do the things he wanted done in the way he desired. This condition continued to develop until he began to complain personally about the "hair shirts" that he had to wear. The "hair shirts" Incident probably was the best tip-off to the sinking feeling that hud begun to permeate Mr. Hoover's outlook at that time. The rest is history. As to the course which Mr. Roosevelt is following in impugning the motives of his opposition, one can hardly take objection because it has bean done S.P often and for the further reason that neither Mr Roosevelt nor Mr. Farley Is a political novice- 1 believe that Wash Ington observers generally give each of these men credit, for beinj; thoroughly versed In politics and since Mr. Roosevelt Is "dimly con sclous that a campaign Is undei way mid an election is scheduled,' he naturally is laying his lines © Wtfftoru Newflpatiyr Un'oa The Methodist Episcopal church Is proud to announce in Nashville, Tenn., that it begins 1030 with 2,783,209 regularly enrolled members, an Increase over the preceding year of 31,298, with 21,301 baptized infants not included.
