Kipling Is Dead Rudyard Kipling, noted British riter and poet, died in a London I iiospital Saturday following an op- jration for a perforated stomach ucer. He was 70 years old. While le was credited with being the nost famed poet of his day, the lonor of poet laureate never was (corded him heransp hia was rharo-- ted with having "insulted" Queen victoria one of his "barrack IRoom Ballads." No TVA Decision The Court adjourned for a two weeks' vacation Monday in administration circles, at a meet- ing held Thursday evening in the auditorium of the public school.

One of the speakers. Dr. How ard C. a member of the State Milk Control Board, stated that about 85 per cent of all milk distributors in the State are will ing to go along with the milk legis- lation enacted and also with the last general order issued by the Control Board and approved by Gov. Earle- The other 15 per cent, largely made up of what is com- monlv termed the milk trust, are those who are strenuously fighting enforcement of the general order, according to Dr.

Reynolds. Twenty some dealers in the Har risburg area, Dr. Reynolds alleged, allowed themselves to become the tools of the milk trust when these dealers asked the Dauphin county court to enjoin the Control Board from enforcing its general order. He also alleged that a majority of the dealers asking the injunction, have underpaid farmers for milk purchased. The Harrisburg dealers have charged that the ten-cent per quart retail price for milk in the area is working a hardship on them and charged discrimination in that the retail price in other city areas is eleven cents.

In answer to this, Dr. Reynolds said that the Control Board is considering allowing distributors in the Harrisburg area to charge eleven cents but that, if this is done, a price of ten cents will be fixed for milk sold from stores. Grocers Make Offer He explained that about 34,000 independent grocers, exclusive of arge chain stores, have, through tbeir organization, offered to sell milk from their stores at ten cents and have agreed to buy milk only from such wholesalers who pay farmers legal price for milk. Large chains have also agreed to this program. Dr.

Reynolds also stated that a study of delivery costs now under way discloses that the cost of de livery is ridiculously high. He ex plained that in one city block un der survey, 15 milk trucks, three of them belonging to one distribu tor, are delivering milk to 60 out of 45 families living in the block while the other 15 families are bnvirifT thir milk stnre. The new general order, the speaker explained, will give farm ers about more monthly by merely taking the freight and- PRICE THREE CENTS jmilk by proper freight and sta- S1.G9 respectively. Moffett 'Raps Trust W. K.

Moffett, head of the bureau of sanitation in the State Depart ment of Health, also addressed the i meeting and opened his remarks by saying: "Unless we, as farmers, get into an organization that control ourselves, we are going to pet the biggest trimming cf our lives." i In explaining tha background of 1 those who are fighting milk con- trol in Pennsylvania, Mr- Moffett said that bankers in New York. wno naJ. pulled their money out of the liquor business, organized a holding company which paid twelve million dollars for a six million dollar plant in Pittsburgh. Then it was reorganized and twenty-one million dollars worth of securities were issued against this plant, worth only six million, and is earning now on the twenty-one million dollar valuation. "The milk trust," Mr.

Moffett said, "took out of a Philadelphia distributor twenty-seven million dollars in dividends, practically the amount of its investment, or over thirty per cent on a watered investment. "Dummy cooperatives were set up by the milk trust who named the officials with whom they bargained for what the farmers were to get for their milk. They paid Pennsylvania farmers $1.14 for milk that went into cream and then imported the same product from western states for which they paid $1.30." Mr. Moffett alleged that the milk trust is paying the cost of litigation started bv dealers in the Har risburg area and added: "You far- I mers are paying the cost of cost- i ly legal talent employed by the milk trust to fight the Control Board's order, by having unfair de ductions made from your milk checks. The milk trust, he averred, is going through with every effort to knock out regulation.

Urges Cooperation "What is the answer?" he asked. And then answered the question by saying: "Cooperation. Not like the Interstate Milk Producers association, but a true cooperative like the Capitol City Milk Producers association. We must get into a farm organization that we control ourselves, until we ow.i our own receiving stations and sell the milk ourselves. Then we must go into the cities and deliver our own milk to consumers.

We must fin- ance these projects. You farmers will be called promptly if the milk trust knocks out control. In this event he said, "The Governor will call a special session. The admini stration is back of farmers and is playing fair with farmers. We need farmers' organizations in the next three months more than ever before.

You are fighting the milk trust which has millions of dollars and high priced stool pigeons to double cross you farmers." Tells Of Code Protest John A. Smith of Centerville, who sponsored the milk legislation in the last session of the Assembly, reviewed briefly the efforts of the Capitol City Milk Producers association, through its attorney, John Faller, to upset the Federal milk code promulgated in 1933. This was successfully done and it will be recalled that at that time Dr. Clyde L. King passed from the picture and that exposes of milk trust profits and alleged misrepresentation of farmers by the Interstate came to light.

A plea was made by Mr. Smith to support the Capitol City group and it was reported that twenty- five persons present joined the as-s. i sociation during the course of the evening's discussions VOL. IX, NO. 43 GARDENING WILL BE SUBJECT OF NIGHT CLASSES M.

Tunnel Survey To Start This Week Near Bedford iSurvev parties were to have been dispatched to the South Penn tunnels in the vicinity ot Hediord, Monday, according to an announcement from the State Highway department at Harrisburg Saturday, but the week-end snowfall has made it necessary to postpone the start until later in the week.

This latter task is the most difficult facing the surveyors, for in many cases farm property or some municipal water shed will be endangered unless precaution is taken.

Under the increased price of Mr.

Moffett predicted a special cream sold at retail, the farmer session of the State Legislature gets more for his milk going into cream, or $1.80 per 100 pounds. Heretofore, Dr. Reynolds said, this price varied and farmers never knew what they would get for milk going into cream. Explains Freight Racket In commenting on the freight and receiving station rackets, Dr. Reynolds said: "We know that one Philadelphia company took $0,000 in freight rates from the receiving station of one group of Pennsylvania farmers and that under the additional fourtean cents taken from farmers in receiving station charges, Philadelphia dealers took an aggregate of $50,000 per month that did not belong to them." "We have found that the big Philadelphia dealers wanted a high price on milk shipped direct to Philadelphia from nearby farms because their smaller competitors bought nearby milk.

The big fellows went out a long distance for theirs and by making receiving station and freight deductions, made hundreds of thousands -of dollars and eventually forced the small competitor out of business.
