A fine selection for the INFLATION AMEND- WENT INTERRUPTS 'DICK'AMENDMENT The currency inflation proposal eatured in congress last week was submitted while the senate vas considering an amendment of- ered by Senator Dickinson. The senate was discussing pro- Isions of the agricultural bill concerning the rate of interest on real estate loans by the federal land >anks. The proposed law contemplates what almost amounts to assumption of farm mortgages by the government. It was proposed In the bill that the interest rate be fixed at Vh per cent. Thia is one per cent less tnan the rate now commonly paid. Mr. Dickinson offered an amendment to reduce the rate to 3% per This caused a discussion which severed most of three pages of the :ongresslonal record. Senator Wagner, of New York, who was in charge of the bill, opposed the amendment. <He said the land banks could not sell their bonds at less .ban four per cent, and the remain- ng one-half per cent required rom mortgagors would not cover ixpenses. He explained that on this account the government was contributing $16,000,000 to enable the banks to lend at the 4^ per :ent .rate. Senator Dickinson replied that if :he government was contributing $15,000,000, it might as well add another $1'5,000,000 and let the distressed mortgagors have the relief at a rate they could stand. Other senators supported him in his stand, but eventually the amendment was voted down, 45-33. Among well known senators who voted with Mr. Dickinson were Borah, Capper, Couzens, Gutting Frazier, Johnson, LaFollette, McNary, Norbeck, Norris, Nye, iPitt- man, Robinson of Indiana, Shipstead, and Wheeler. Senator Murphy, of Dubuque, voted against the Dickinson amendment. In the midst of the debate Senator Thomas, of Oklahoma, interrupted to offer the inflation amendment. There was no discus sion of the merits of this amend ment at the time, but it was taken up In the senate next day and ha been hotly opposed by a G. 0. P group led by Senator Reed, Pennsylvania. 44 PUPILS'AT ALGONA H, S.
