six miles southwest of hero They appreciate seasoning of their food just as humans do Tbo seasoning is molasses Molisses Bell says is the stuff that makes them step up and eat Often I will break the corn up for them and they will wait until tiic molasses is poured over the corn be fore they will touch it Bell has 250 steers and 700 hogs on his farm and each day they cat 120 bushels of corn a half barrel of molasses and eight bales of alfalfa lay Bells farm also boasts about 700 white leghorn chickens and he lauls manure all the time Most of Mr Bells cattle came from Johnson and Washington counties A few loads were bought In Colorado His hogs were bought in the neighborhood and at a termi nal market Bell this year has fed a little more than half of the 30000 bushels of corn he bought

that imported molasses used in the manufacture of industrial alcohol was displacing rican corn while starch imports left growers in this country with po tatoes to throw away He urged that the problem be dealt with by tariff revision to pre serve the domestic market for Am erican producers and suggested that members of the agriculture commit tee present the case to the ways and means committee Coulter favored creation of a farm board to aid the farmer in bal ancing production and demand Stabilization corporations also would be valuable he said but he disagreed with suggestions that they should be controlled b3 the government Instead of by the farm ers Coulter said that in anticipation of the enactment of farm relief leg islation that would be effective plans already were being made to increase the acreage in production during the season Touches on Philippines Turning to the problem of dealing with the Philippine Islands farm products Coulter said congress should say frankly to

MacDonald chief of 1 the bureau in a recent statement 1 declared There is little j to the public in the fad that the I industries which depend upon the highways for their whole business should be the worst offenders in erecting and maintaining thousands of glaring disfiguring signs along our streets and roadways He also pointed out that many of the pro ducers of the best products do not advertise in this way and that cer tain oil companies have withdrawn from this practice These signs says Mr MacDon f are concentrated on the main traveled highways and are habitual ly placed at turns In the road wherS the motorists should be giving most careful attention to driving In many instanses they cut off the view of approaching cars at curves and at road intersections Some even First Leaders
