DROUTH AND CAUSES OF ECONOMIC CRISIS Although the drouth may curtail production in 1934, It will not take care of the basic causes of the economic crisis facing farmers, Frank Robotka, dairy economist for the AAA, declared last week. "Many people think that the drouth will tak? care of necessary reduction in agricultural surpluses," said Mr Robotka. "If adjustment In agricultural production is so insignificant that a little excess or lack of rain can cure It, the problem facing farmers is small. That, we know, Js not true. A problem which has developed over a long period of years and which is bassd on fundamental economic changes cannot be cured by a drouth." The United States still has the excess acres brought into production during the war, the excess acres brought under cultivation by more efficient mechanical power and the acres whose products were formerly absorbed by foreign markets which, temporarily at least no longer exist. ° The United States also still faces the problem of being a creditor nation Instead of a debtor nation. Europe ran pay her debt to the U. S. only In goods and our tariffs work against that, said Mr. Robotka. While that is true we cannot expect to sell much to Europe. As long as surplus acreage exists the American farmer will be "in the shadow of the surplus." Er«n though the wheat crop is greatly decreased this yejr by drouth, the United States has on hand enough surplus to f^ed the nation for one year if no wheat at all wer-> produc- CO* Mr. Robotka emphasized the fact that farmers must adjust their producing plant. They may adjust in an orderly manner assisted by the government and may receive benefit payments to help them over the priod of adjustment. On the other hand they may let nature tak* Its course which will result in many farmers going bankrupt and being forced out of business, thus securing the necessary reduction. The first course will result in less distress .to farmers and In less social cost to the country as a whole. The purposes of the AAA program, Mr. Robotka explained, are to help farmers work out this orderlv program of adjustment. The program has just been started and a long time plan will be required to reach ultimate objectives. Present programs are primarily of an emergency nature, necessary to relieve Immediate distress. Farmers themselves must make the adjustment* he declared. The government can only lend Its aid and ultimate success depends on farmers studying patiently nnd carefully long time aspects of the program ar.d putting Into effect an actual reduction. PEPPING UP CRIMINAL APPREHENSION Lawyers of the state listened to their state bar president call for a state police system under civil service, at Waterloo recently, aj>d the setting up of a school of criminology to train peace officers. Political peace officers are untrained for their duties, the speaker said. The press was also blamed for romanticizing criminals. Goodness knows that taxpayers do not want any additional (axes, and would not favor setting up a new batch of state employees, even If they are under civil service. But if some of the various state groups now in existence were correlated into one good state police system, under civil service, Iowa would have an organization to be proud of indeed, assuming that it were handled fairly and without political supervision. We hope that the members of the state bar association, yielding the influeno; in their respective communities that they do. will aid in working toward such a setup. And, if about a half dozen of the various groups of state inspectors were condensed into a state police force, all the work of the inspectors, plus that of a well trained law enforcement group, could b? accomplished, it might even save money. ODD THINGS AND NEW-By Lame Bode odds and ends According to reports from Chicago, business men are now going in for the Latin custom of a two-hour lunch period. Not a bad idea, but It may work a detrimental effect on the afternoon bridge games of the wives. The capitalists want to give too much; the labor leaders are asking too much. The American public Is in between, like the meal between the grindstones. And if the public were the Judge, it would probably demand that labor and capital each yield a few points, meet in between, and settle the differences to the satisfaction of everyone. Down in the dungeon, otherwise known as the printing department of this weekly house of news and what have you. there resides during the week, a linotype operator, known as Merle Schwietert. H-?'s a quiet, sort of a fellow, doing his work well, loyal to the code of all machine operators. He was bitten with the golf bug a short time ago. and in enthusiasm for the sport, ordered a set of golf clubs. The clubs arrived, and Mr. Schwietert prepared to enter into the famous sport Then, to his dismay, he found he had right handed clubs, and he was left handed. The golf lessons have been delayed. Finding the bodies of those rtcad people In trunks over In England will probably furnish the American movie public with a dozen or so new movies based on trunk murder plots. This happened at Lake Okoboji ... a young Kossuth couple, and th-ir three year old offspring (female) were in a store, when a sweet young thing of 18 or 19 sum- *™?rs tripped in. dressed in a pair of shorts, and with a bright red bandanna across her chest, tied in a knot In the rear ... the little girl looked at the older girl's bare legs, and other bare portions for a moment, and then asked, "Is you all bare naked?" By the time a husband will stand without hitching he is hardly worth owning. Simile—As shy and retiring: as Gene NevCIe at a kittenball game. • * * Tom Sherman says that he Intends to work out a formula for inserting bird seed in the liquor that the new state store will handle here The purpose, Tom says Is to endow the liquor with Ingredients which will make the purchasers desire to sing instead of flght.
