JrjRESIDENT HOOVER will have the backing of a large percentage of from the pro I sslonal his admonition for united action the past the principal obstacle to agricultural ala om the government has rested in the fact that every ganlzat ion seemed to have abrand of relief all its no two alike and some of them diametrically Jtposlte The representative or senator who had no isthuslasm for farm relief anyway could go to one of IB farm lobbyists and get an adverse opinion on any roposal that was under consideration Even congress len with a sincere desire to remedy agricultural con Itions have found themselves befuddled In their at laipt to settle ona specific plan H Obviously concerned over the tendency of the pro lisiQual relievers to belittle his own no jier reason than because it differed from their own president gave expression to these aightfromtheshoulder sentirrients 1 regret to see that some farm organizations s again divided on measures of agricultural re lief One primary difficulty in the whole of this list eight years has been the conflict in point of I Jew in the ranks of the agricultural orgahiza yons and the farmers themselves k A definite plan of principles for farm relief adopted republican convention at Kan the plan of the party it was not L1ttheplan of any individual orgroup nted an effort to get together and obtain damental beginnings and necessitated the itding of views by all ofus it was supported by elements of the party in the campaign and ion it we have a clear mandate Without enteringinto the merits or demerits any other suggestion at the present time I con eplore that divisions in the ranks of the farmers emselves encourage those who oppose all farm ilief and can at best only bring great delays and nger of entire failure If after eight years of agitation and debate a matter BO vital to a large part of our people to succeed In putting1 the question out of tics and on the way to solution under economife jtdance we have need of unity in the ranks of farmers themselves and the different groups reflect their views in congress No great in public action can ever succeed without e compromise of view and some sacrifice of Ion ong the lowans active In farm legislation ac the tendency was to accept the Hoover plan instructive measure There were two notable however Milo Reno and Senator Brook no who had turned against Hoover before the j expressed the view that the proposal was Brookhart criticized it in more temperate ririncipal difference between the Hoovers and with respect toagricultural aid is that the jjVOuld rather have the best bill it is possible rind pass whereas the Renos prefer to go down for an unattainable ideal Thats just what interests have for the past eight S have been led at Washington by a group Inwilling to yield an inch It may be a little Bourse to allude to it but it Is an inescapable Son that delay in obtaining farm relief ex a good Job for the professional relievers it no progress has been made toward a broad Itive program of legislative assistance Pres jjver has made such a start only to find the jmy out in full armor to block the path True farming will hope that hesucceeds with the jhods he Is pursuing in routing the men who interested in bread and butter for thera they are in Improvlpg farm conditions REFUSED TO BE COWED JSIDENT HOOVER is being cowed by

editorial headed Are Calories to Suffer Fate of A1V HasBeens written in a California news paper last year the writer commenting on the dis covery of new vitamins says But in our enthusiasm over the vitamins let us not forget the unfortunate calories Not so long ago they were the whole cheese Came the vita min and the calorie was out of a job More vitamins The unemploy ment rate among calories has grown to be something frightful Nobody ever grives them a thot Their old friends might agitate for an employment dole or at least es tablish a home for Indigent calor ies They were faihful servitors as long as they had a Job and they helped expand many a waistband They deserve something better than utter neglect Yes indeed the calories deserve LULU HUNT something better than utter neg PETERS M D lect and Im surprised that an edi torial writer should neglect them so much that he doesnt even know the meaning of the word The calorie Is simply a scientific unit used to mesure the energy and heat producing value of foods and it has no connection whatever with the vitamins which are inherent principles of the food and cannot be measured by calories for there Is no relationship between them In the first place the vitamins havent ieen isolated and in the second place it is not their unction to produce energy or heat except in a round about way in promoting general well being No indeed the calorie is not nor will it ever be a hasbeen unless some other unit to measure the energy and heating value of foods is found which serves the purpose better This editorial writer is also mistaken in thinking that everybody Is forgetting about the calorie The overwelghters the undenveight ers and the diabetics and others who have to know something of the energy and heating values of their foods are using the knowledge of calories every day And getting results too It is only in unscientific fooc literature that you read such au article as the one quoted Vive ID Calorique M

question during a long1 minute Then he answered No Would a petty bank official con victed of a shortage of a few thou sands escape with a threemonth sentence and a small fine He might feel his disgrace just as acutely as these men He would be a prey to the same anxiety His legal expenses probably would ruin him But he could not hope for less than a term of years in prison We must consider

read any lesson to the n people generally I have repeatedly heard it as serted replied Senator Walsh that a man with Sinclairs millions never could be sent to prison I hear It asserted even yet Of course this is a very bad rame of mind for the country to he n I believe Sinclairs actual im prisonment will tend to improve it Nevertheless I have beenkeenly disappointed thruout by the failure of officials in high places to express thhorrence of the conditions which the oil investigation revealed True the president did speak of corruption in office and the necessity or punishing it but only in general erms Otherwise or from any other s mllar source not a word It seems to me that such an pearance of indifference on the part f those whom it would be natural o suppose would be most concerned must lead to the popular conclusion 71 that they did not regard such a state of affairs very seriously How then were convictions rea sonably to have been expected from juries the oil scandals at least

will recommend the use of the Xrays That seems to be the quietus on the overactivity of the sweat glands Some good astringent solutions are One ounce of liquid formalin to the quart of water or a 25

Iowa has a brand new banking law It has no eature of bank guarantee at all jut it is designed to make banks safer for the public There wil be more bank examiners closer scrut ny of state banks and trust com panies and a closer watch on the learance of one bank with another The new law is not radical in any sense There is one feature which is not entirely desirable and that is that it is no longer criminal to re ceive deposits in a bank which IB insolvent unless fraudulent Intent can be proved It la probably true that some bankers have been con victed under the old law for receiv ing deposits into a bank without knowing whether it was solvent or not However we think the old law was a good one as It made bankers more careful and it is hardly pos sible that a bank should become in solvent without the officers of the institution knowing it In the new law the rate of inter est paid under the BrookhartLov ien law Is reduced from to 2 eginning in 1930 This we presume vlll please
