ORAL SOUTH'S ACREAGE NOT TOO LARGE The National Cooperative Council, composed of 4.000 farmers' business organizations, has announced a new farm plan for consideration by Congress. One part -of this plan states that the problem of crop surpluses should be dealt with by completely withdrawing from production the requisite number of acres instead, of transferring these acres to other uses. Commenting on this proposal, The Progressive Farmer makes the following statements: "Now it is entirely probable that such an plan as that suggested by the National Cooperative Council Would be found satisfactory in the Corn Belt States, but it would be less likely to work effectively in the South. "First of all, it approaches our problem from the wrong direction. It calls for a reduction of our cultivated arceage> in the face of a cultivated acreage that is already too small to yield a decent standard of living for pur farm people. What we need over most of the South is not smaller farms but better balanced farms. "We need that very shift of acreage to other .crops that this plan inveighs against. If certain of the border states are included as Southern, we have about half the farm people of the nation. The cultivated lands of the South are already overtaxed to support the huge population that depends upon them. It is doubtful it a smaller acreage can support our population in any condition but one of poverty. "Farm management studies indicate quite clearly that a farmer must handle a reasonable acreage of land if he is to maintain a decent standard of living. When we take the total acreage of cultivated land in the South and divide it by the total number of persons who are getting their living from this land, we find that here in the South, the number of cultivated acres per capita of rural population is very small in comparison with that of other sections of the nation. Unless many people are to leave Southern farms for the cities, the present cultivated acreage will be required to maintain them."—Memphis Democrat. PUZZLED?

BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- CLEVELAND—There is plenty of chance for a sob story about the downfall of some of the Old Guard bosses, as demonstrated at the Republican convention. In some quarters, there is even an inclination to speak of a so-called spiritual rebirth of the party, on the theory that the old-line men are being replaced by fellows more honest and more obsessed with devotion to the public weal. Anyway, former Postmaster General Walter F. Brown has been bounced from his position as Republican national cottimitteeman from Ohio and such once-puissant figures as Charlie Hilles of New York, J. Henry Boraback of Connecticut, Jim Watson of Indiana, and Dave Reed of Pennsylvania are shown to be largely shorn of their former power. All proved unable to direct and deliver their own delegations. Most New Yorkers here believe the Hilles rule has been broken for good. He has been a member of the Republican national committee since 1912, when he managed Taft's vain campaign against Wilson and Roosevelt. Ever since Penrose's time, Hilles has usually been mentioned first when people spoke of "reactionary old guard bosses." Walter Brown has always been bitterly opposed by liberals and outstanding crusaders for purer politics. He learned his first political lesson under Mark Hanna, became state chairman, Bull-Moosed in 1912, helped Harry Daugherty nominate Harding, and in 1928 engineered the nomination of Hoover. Rencently, he and State Chairman E. D. Schorr emphasized their control by giving Borah and their political enemies a bad beating in the primaries. The Ohio delegation came to Cleveland with &• majority pledged to Brown's re-election as committeeman. Bu.t .Borah charged national committee funds had been used'to bring about his Ohio defeat. Brown publicly said he didn't know anything about it. Schorr felt that Brown was trying to push blame on him and promptly turned against him, causing Brown's defeat. . Q. Who was the first newspaper columnist? A. C. A. The Reverend Increase Mather was probably America's lirst columnist, starting his Advice to the Public column in 1721. Q. When were air stewardesses first employed? E. R. A. On May 14, 1930, United Air Lines inaugurated the employment of air stewardesses by placing eight girls on the Chicago-California division of its airway. The company now employs 150 air stewardesses. Q. What is Koppenberg? E. R. A. Koppenberg refers to the mountain of Westphalia to which the Pied Piper led the children when the people of Hamelin refused to pay him for killing their rats. The Pied Piper is by Browning. Q. Please give some information about Rex Ingram who plays de Lawd in The Green Pastures. C. K. A. Educated in medicine at Northwestern University, his career was changed by the offer of the role of cannibal chief in the first Tarzan film eighteen years ago. On the stage he has specialized in tough characterizations such as Blacksnake Johnson in Stevedore and Crown in the Western production of Porgy. He is six feet tall and because of his size is frequently mistaken for Joe Louis, the fighter. Q. In letter writing is it correct to say, contents carefully noted? M. P. A. The phrase is obsolete. Other words should be used to convey the Idea of personal interest: We have read with particular care etc. Q. What statesman requested that his heart be buried at the fee of his mother? R. W. A. Marshal Josef Pilsudski. Polish dictator, made this request. He died a year ago and in May at Vilna the body of his mother and his heart were buried in a cemetery among the bodies of 200 Polish soldiers who died fighting for the liberation of the city. Q.

'Bjt-Senator Reed argued vainly with Pennsylvania's 75 delegates to retain their "influence" by staying off the Landon bandwagon, but by the eve of nomination 50 of ihem had leaped aboard. Reed represents the waning political influence of the Mellons. Roraback still controls the party organization in Connecticut. He wouldn't b'e so sure of it if he hadn't belatedly seen,, the light and declared for Landon, in accordance witn the state delegation's sentiment, before he reached Cleveland.
