The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, July 5, 1934 ALGONA ATTORNEY PROTESTS FARM MORTGAGE BILL Archie Hutchison Says Bill If Signed Would Make Contracts Worthless WOULD BE ONLY A SCRAP OF PAPER Writes to President Roosevelt Protesting in Name of Common Honesty The bill passed by both houses of congress, declaring a scaling down of farm mortgages and a moratorium of six years, with an Interest rate reduced to one per cent, was signed last Saturday. Archie Hutchison, well known Algona attorney, wrote the following letter of protest to President Roosevelt the other day In which ha suggests that the bill if made a law, would make all contracts very questionable. Here is what Archie told the president: President Roosevelt, Washington, D. C., Dear Mr. President: I see by this morning's Des Moines Register that a bill was passed by the U. 8. senate •whereby it Is proposed to scale down notes secured by mortgages on real estate located In the United States and to reduce the interest on the same to one per cent for the duration of five years. That the scaling down is to be done at the discretion of a commission appointed In each county of the United States as a conciliation commission. Now, Mr. Presdlent, If this bill is as reported by the Des Moines Register, the only protection we have against its nefarious action Is your good self and the supreme court of the United States, and you have the first opportunity to set It aside and I trust that you, in your good judgment may see flt to veto this nefarious piece 1 of legislation. I would call it nothing short of highway robbery. If this bill receives your signature and becomes a law It will destroy the faith of the people of the United States In all contracts, destroy the validity of all contracts and render every sacred agreement a mere "scrap of paper." If this bill Is as purported to be and it should go Into effect it would destroy every Incentive in both old and young to effort, thrift, self-denial and economy, and would lower the conception of the citizen for the honesty, justice and integrity of the government of this nation. If the mortgages held by the life Insurance companies of the United States of America as security for the trust funds held In their hands for the widows and orphans of this nation were scaled down as proposed and the remaining principal practically relieved from Interest for five years, I believe it would destroy the savings of the man who has denied himself many of the pleasures and luxuries through his life so that his wife and children might not become public charges if he were called to his reward, and there are many widows who have sold the farms left by their husbands on small down payments and taken security back on the farm for the major portion of the purchase price. Would you defraud these widows and their children out of the savings of the man who gave his life's work for those for whom he was responsible. No, Mr. President, we can not "Rob Peter to pay Paul." It Is true some one robbed the farmer when he was paid eight cents for oats and ten cents for corn and some one robbed him Just lately HUNDREDS PAY LAST RESPECTS AT RAYMOND BALGEMAN FUNERAL RITES Whittemore: One of the largest funerals ever held at St. Paul's Lutheran church was held Sunday afternoon for Raymond Balgeman, who was killed early Friday morning. It was impossible for the crowd to get into th« church so a loud speaker was fixed in the church yard. Raymond Herman Balgeman was born September 28, 1917, on a farm south of town. He was the son of Supervisor and Mrs. F. J. Balgeman. He received his earlier education from St. Paul's Lutheran school from which he was confirmed In March. 1932. In the fall he entered high school at the public school and would have been a junior this fall. Besides his sorrowing parents he leaves four brothers and four sisters. George and Harry of West Bend, Iiouls and Delbert at home, Mrs. Clarence Johnson of West Bend, Ruth. Viola and Bernioe at home. All attended the funeral but Viola who underwent an operation at the Lutheran hospital in Fort Dodge Wednesday. Funeral services were held at 230 o'clock Sunday afternoon with Rev. H. W. Dlscher In charge. Burial was made in the Lutheran cemetery at West Bend, beside his brother and sister who preceded him In death. Ray was a good natured lad, always had a smile for everyone and will be missed by his friends as well as by his parents and family. Advertising We coasted through June. I did very little advertising so I had better get busy and shake up this old month of July. Advertising Is to a business what oil and grease Is to a motor car. A place of business needs lubrication Just the same as a car does. You have to tell people what you have for sale and ask 'them to come in and trade. The next thing is what kind of advertising to use. The competitive, constructive or the circus style. Competitive advertising is money wasted. The circus style of ballyhoo Is old stuff and out of date. So we will stick to the good old constructive advertising, building business with good standard shoes, as a foundation and low prices as an inducement to trade at Neville's. Your money's worth and a little more la the way we have built up the wonderful business we now enjoy. Quick sales and small profits. We forget percentage and go after volume. Any little profit will do if you have -alenty volume. We carry the largect 4tock of shoes In this part of the state. We flt your feet with the style you select, then it is yea or no. No sales talk, no coaxing, no blarney. Just good, straight business with people -that want to save money on good shoes. We figure that people who want entertainment should buy a ticket to the picture show for after all sales talk and blarney are Just sugar-coated pills. The customer pays for the time wasted. It is all charged up to overhead and added to the goods. Trade where you get the most for your money; help the store that Is trying to help you.

S. government paid trie packing interests of this country six- been dollars per cwt. for processed meat taking millions of dollars worth and then permitted the packers to nil their store houses with two cents per pound hogs. It costs money to produce com. oats and hogs and the farmer has not received even a small fraction of the cost of production. This Is where the farmers lost their money and they should look for it where they lost it and find it there and not try to recover their loss from, the man who by hard work, thrift and economy has saved a little for his old age and for those depending on him. Mr. President, I have faith in your judgment, statesmanship, honest intention and ability to see that two wrongs never made or*e right and in this faith I close with this appeal to you that you consider well the far reaching evil effects of this dishonest bill before you give it your sanction and signature and I appeal not only for myself, my country or my state but for every citizen of this nation who believes every man should meet, his honest obligations and retain and maintain these United States a one hundred per cent nation, and by the help of God and the honest effort and actions of the good people of this nation we can do It.
