Farmers Pay More But Receive Less Washington, Feb. 17 Iff) — A slight increase ,in prices paid by farmers for commodities and no change in flie prices they received during (the last week in January were reported by the Bureau of Agricultural Economics. The index of farm products prices on January 81 was 71 per Cent of the 1910-1914 average, compared with 70 in mid-January and 51 in January, 1933. The general level of prices paid by farmers was 116.5 per cent of the pre-war average, compared with 116 during the previous four montlis, and 102 in January, 1933. SHALL WE WAIVE INT1USTATE EXEMPTION FROM NIKA? The constitution gives congress the power to regulate commerce (between the states. The Federal government has no powers except Buch as are conferred upon it by the constitution specifically or by necessary inference. Therefore it lias no power to regulate intrastate las distinguished from interstate commerce. Intrastate commerce is BUch as is originated, carried on, trend was already , against them long before Nira Sharpened the claws of the great corporations, and what little advantage they have left th'ey should be allowed to keep. The fact is, and no one who stops to think can fail to see it, that wlhile Nira may have been motivated ;by the best of intentions, it is inevitably, in effect, a device to make agricultural states like Iowa pay_tribute to the manufacturing sections. We are asked to support it on the theory that in return the manufacturing sections will buy our products. But if in the hope that the Hheory'will work we have to beggar our own small shops and factories, what will be the gain in the end? • • * • One more aspect of the question which the Advance has considered in previous discussions needs to be envisioned again, and that is that under Nira the prices of manufactured goods sold by retailers are being raised constantly, while despite every effort of the administration the great lack of parity between agriculture and industry continues. By way of illustration flhe Advance recently cited three letters from _different paper houses in one morning's mail announcing price advances of from 25 to 36 per cent on printing papers. Retailers in all lines have been receiving such notices as fast as codes became effective. In turn they are expected to pass the (increases on to consumers.

SPECIAL CINEMA ADDICTS interested in the unusual, we recommend part of the Richard Barthelmess picture Massacre at the Call next Saturday. Some friend of studio letters' and completed Btate. •Wholly within a When the NRA campaign to impose codes on all industry was inaugurated last summer it was pointed out that the national industrial recovery act could not apply to factories and other establishments doing business only within their own states, but the objection •was pooh-poohed, and in the mass psychology of the moment local industry yielded. There has been time since then lor sober thinking, and now that federal court after federal court ihas upheld objectors, General Johnson finds himself obliged to capitulate and call on the state 'legisla- fcures to impose Nira on intrastate commerce. A uniform (bill has accordingly been submitted to the estates, and recently it was ".by request" introduced in the Iowa senate by .Senator Doze. Presumably at Uias also been introduced in the touse. * * * * The bill opens with the same allegation of "emergency" which was successfully used in the national act to get around the constitution. Bee. 3 provides that no person, linn, or corporation shall refrain trom complying with a code on the ground that he or it is not engaged *n interstate commerce. The codes are to be considered 'standards of fair competition" in all transactions within the state and violations shall ibe misdemeanors punishable by a $500 fine for teach day of non-compliance. Any person in affected industries or any county attorney may institute suit to prevent or restrain violations. Finally it is provided in Sec. 6 «hat no public body or official shall act contracts for the construction alteration, or repair of public •works, or for the purchase of materials or supplies lor public use, except to persons who agree to use or supply only goods supplied by establishments operating under codes. This section would put Iowa into the boycott business. Amusingly enough, if somewhat grimly for persons affected, and by way of illustration of the inexpertness of Che Jofhnsonian expert who presumably concocted this bill, See C miglit prevent the purchase of nearly _ all home-manufactured goods in towns under ,2500 inhabitants, because Nira does not apply in such towns. The Hancock county board of supervisors, for example, could not buy a penny's worth are eifther farmers or people who live on .farmers, ihow can this be done before agriculture is brouglht ;o parity with industry? Let this be pondered in the light of the fol- owmg paragraph from Agricultural Economic Facts for February published at the Ames State c olege: "The farmer got less for his products during December than he did the month (before, but he had to pay more for the things he buys for use in consumption and production.

As -we pointed out recently th corn loan is a temporary affair. In bhe same connection we said: "It is not much of an answer to explain that AAA is going to take care of the farmer with its corn- hog plan. The wheat plans of two administrations have failed the processing scheme looks like a :lop, and nobody knows whether the corn-hog plan will work In any event the farmer and all who ive on him, if they are to face fancy price boosts on all they have to fouy may be long past resuscitation before relief arrives." These are facts for the Iowa legislature legislating for Iowa people, not for General Johnson's eastern manufacturing section to consider before it fastens iNira on ontrastate business.

Towards Friday, our drooping spirits were somewhat revived after a new "low" (for us) Tuesday, and we were privileged to witness Wheeler and Wooley in anotfher hodge-podge of musical asinity called Hips, Hips, Hooray. We found the program rather diverting, and the young ladies of the chorus easy to look at, which may be accounted for by our weakened condition following the flu We even .went BO far as to register the best chuckle of 1933-34, a loud resounding belly-laugh, which! scouts report, was heard in the furthermost confines of the Call, even unto the projection booth, where Colonel Will holds forth.

A habit grows on you quietly, unobtrusively, till you have no certain knowledge of its power and its strength, ilt ia only as you try to break it that you realize what an integral part of your daily life it has (become. On the other hand, once the spell has been broken, it is even more difficult to get back to the old order of things. Thus as we viewed Hips, Hips, Hooray, in a mellow frame of mind, surrounded by the most congenial of companions we seriously considered the advisability of giving up these critical ravings so fraught with toil and arduous labor, and going again to the movies, as we used to go in the good old silent days Just for the sake of relaxation and enjoyment. But Habit, more powerful than weak resolve, whispered in a sympathetic ear, "Think of the discomfort and annoyance you will give patient, unsuspecting readers by your contrary, harsh views." And so_, then and there, we made up our mind to continue in tine same low, base groove. And we ruminated long and earnestly during the golden days of convalescence on the value of good health. Though most of our .best writers, poets, musicians, men of art, were creatures of ill-health and near-invalids, we still cling to the notion that a good liver and a clear head are the two most important things in this world. Not only that, but the kind cheering messages of friends—some rather disguised under a .good cloak of "razz."

(Perhaps it is this sympathetic word which encourages so many of pur modern men and women to "enjoy ill healtih," We'1'1 admit, it da a temptation. We wish to tfliank the "kind friend" who wrote the review last week, as well as all who are constantly reminding us that life is worth the struggle and nothing is ever gained whidb. is not fraught with sacrifice and effort.
