DICKINSON'S SPEECH IN MAINE The following article appeared hi The Chicago Herald & Examiner, last Friday, and b reprinted herewith for the benefit of our readers. Senator Dickinson Is now (making the far fly in the east, where he is campaigning against the New Deal In no uncertain terms. The Algona senator's remarks do Mot necessarily coincide with the editorial view of this newspaper, but are reprinted in an effort to present all sides of this Interesting topic of the day. * » « Lewiston, Me., August IS-Benator L. J. Dickinson of Iowa opened the Republican campaign here today with a slashing attack on the New Deal. Dickinson declared the country is suffering from a "revolution in experimentation," Instigated by theorists with IKtle practical knowledge of human affairs and governments. He charged that this attempt at regimentation has undermined confidence and has produced a feeling of uncertainty and alarm that effects all iterests in the United States. Calling the New Deal a revolution, Dickinson said that it is not checked at IJie polls this Fall, it will destroy the American form of government, flll the land with uncertainty and alarm and put a premium on <he repudiation of sacred contracts. He charged that the Democratic national administration was first in the field with a repudiation program and had brushed aside the sanctity of contracts by its refusal to meet Its bond obligations, and added: "A dynnamic charge of uncertainty surrounds us everywhere. We have an uncertain dollar, an uncertain business atmosphere, an uncertain commercial atmosphere and uncertain farm atsmosphere." The senator labeled the Washington administration "rattle-brained" and said that its program was made up of: "Headlines promising benefits to humanity, but like most Democratic promises, the dividend checks never arrive. When I say rattle-brain, I mean lack of stability—one man working at counter purposes with another—one government official forever doing one thing, and another the opposite." While one cabinet officer, he went on, is endeavoring to reduce crop acreage, another "Big Bertha" is shoveling out millions of the taxpayers' money to make productive millions of acres of new land. The NRA, he said, has been a colossol failure, adding: "The New Deal rattle-brains said they had a definite remedy for unemployment. All looked well in the blue print. Sixteen months have passed and the number on the relief rolls is still increasing, and the amount being spent for relief is the greatest In the entire history of the depression." Dickinson viwed the administration's agricultural program with alarm. The happy medium between surplus and scarcity was to be desired, but if a choice had to be made, the country, he insisted, would be infinitely better off with an abundance of crops. He said: "It should always be remembered that there is security in plenty, and that there is danger In scarcity." One of the main troubles at present, he declared, Is that the American people are suffering with an overdose of "alpahbetlcal soup." The senator went back into history to sustain his point that every time "brain trusters" took charge of governments they quickly declined and collapsed. The whole program of the Washington rcgimenters, he said, has turned out to be a "guessing party." He added: "The only way to stop this program Is in the election of Republitans to the House nnd Senate. The Republican nnrty bollrvos in n balanced budget, individual living witniu ti.c- income, paying debts in the kind of dollar contracted to pay, and the sanctity of contract. On this phllsophy the Republican party hopes to be a determining factor in rebuilding America to where we are ii self-sustnlnlnR, happy and contented people." The Muine cntiin»''lfjn this year takes on e.spcci ;1 f's- nlflcance in that it will be the first state in the Uni n to pass on the K oast volt policies since the administration came into power. In the election, which will !),-• held September 10, nearly two montlw ahead of the K''ncryl election, the :,ta'.e will name a United States senator, a governor, three members of congress, a legislature, unit many other constitutional officers. IT'S O. K. WITH US The r cc-nt ruling of the Iowa liquor c',mmi ; Mon again; t allowini; hard liquor advertising in Iowa news- paprr.s is all right wi'ii u.s. Although heartily in favor of the return of legal liquor that can be controlled, we see no reason for endeavoring to promote tlv- u<c of liquor through advertising. Iowa, however, will still bee liquor uclvertiMng, ina much as dailies printed outside the ,s!ute and maguzin. ,s are all carrying liquor advertising. Tlie bUitf ruling cannot prevent Iow.ui.s from reading the tuls, either. Tht; .spirit of btate liquor .stores is, to defeat the. hootk-gi;- r, provide good liquor when desjred, and to handle the business on as high a plane aa possible. And judging by the profit rrporU'd in the firtt month, the stores can muk.- money without advertising, something we hoiK- the rt'.st of the boys don't- try, however.

MODERNIZATION PROGRAM TO AID FARM PROJECTS Americans who live in small communities and on farms should benefit as much as the city dwellers from the Modernization credit Plan of the Federal Housing Administration, under provisions of the National Housing Act as proposed by President Roosevelt, enacted by congress and put Into operation by Administrator James A. MofTett. Success of the Modernization Program is believed by Mr. MofTett, to depend fully as much upon the response and cooperation of the farmer and the citizen of the small community as upon those who live in metropolitan areas. At least, the need on the farm for repairs, alterations and improvements is as great as in the city, as indicated by a current Farm Housing Survey of the Department of Agriculture. Prtliminary figures of this survey indicate that out of every 100 farm houses, probably 50 are under the minimum standard of livabllity; tha: 15 out of each hundred houses need new foundations, 15 to 20 need new roofs, 10 to 15 need n--w floors, ten need new walls and a large number lack bath facilities. Through the Modernization Program of the Federal . Housing Administration, which got under way August 10, the United States Government offers the farmer as well as the city dweller the means of bringing his home up to modern American living standards, and also of Improving his barns and other buildings, through the regu- Inr banks and other lending agencies of his community. No money is given away and the borrower does not deal directly with the Federal Housing Administration. But the money is mad? available tfs "character loans" through regular established lending agencies. The Federal Housing Administration insures the lending institutions against 100 per cent of all loss, provided the total of such loss does not exceed 20 per cent of the total volume of such credits advanced. Property owners who receive an income in form of proceeds from the sale of agricultural crops or live stock may pay the installments corresponding to the dates on which they receive their income, provided they make payments at least once a year to meet the Interest and reduce the principal. Any approved bank, trust company, building and loan association, farm credit institution or other lending agency has all the necessary information for the person seeking a Modernization Loan. Here is a concise summary, however, of information the property owner needs to go about getting such a loan: 1. A Modernization Loan is solely for the purpose of repairing, altering or improving your home, barn, silo, shop store or other building (also deepening or digging wells in drought-stricken states. Diversion of the money to any other purpose is strictly prohibited. 2. The loan cannot be made for less than $109 or for more than $2,000. In addition, the borrowei must have a bona fide source of income equal to at least five times the annual payments. 3. The loan can be made for terms of one, two and three years, but may be paid in full earlkr than the maturity date if the borrower desires. 4. Maximum charges, Including Interest and all fees, cannot exceed an amount equivalent to $5 discount per year per $100 original face amount of the note. 5. To get a Modernization Loan, the property owner must present to the bank or other lending institution a precise estimate of the cost of the Improvement and must bo able to prove that they are necessary or advisable. 6. In addition, the property owner must file a Property Owner's Credit Statement, showing his financial condition, sources and amount of Income and other information necessary to determine his ability to repay the lean. If the bank considers the improvements advisable, and the property owner able to m-:et the payment when due, it can advance the money on the personal note of the property owner. The note must be signed by both husband and wife, if the property owner is married. No mortgage or collateral security is necessary, unless state or the bank officials demand it. odds and ends H. D.
