Purvis chief of the Chicago office of the bureau of investigation in the department of justice said Senate to Continue Probe WASHINGTON Dec 28 Chairman Norbeck of the senate banking committee today said his group would continue its inquiry into the Insull crash regardless of the Greek refusal to extradite Samuel Insull to the United States Norbeck added that if Greeces action had any effect at all it would make us push the investiga tion harder For weeks the committee has had agents at work in Chicago looking into the Insull Utilities col lapse but the question of open hearings here has been left for future determination TO STAY IN GREECE ATHENS Dec 28 Insiill liberated yesterday after the courts rejected a petition for his extradition to America returned today to his hotel from the hos pital where he was taken shortly after his arrest several weeks agn Thank God the truth was proved he exclaimed to a corre spondent as he went to luncheon He said he would remain in Greece

declared President Georgopoulos of the court of appeals said today there had been no attempt by executive powers to influence the court II ruled Mr Insull could not be ex tradited to the United States on ths evidence which was intended to show him guilty of larceny and em bezzlement in connection with the colapse of his middle west utilities enterprises Pay No Attention Even had they tried to

sources What is very interesting is that the technocrats assure us this new condition IB not for us a matter of choice but inevitable They say we must come to use rather than ac the statement of commentators that we can have a standard living 10 times as high as waa possible with incomes of 1920 if we organize our full capacity to produce and that no one need work more than four hours a day four days a week and no one need work before the age of 25 or after the age of 45 Passion of Technocrats Technocrats are men who have a passion for things in life that are measurable However I believe the techno crats would benefit if they would stop studying charts for a while and would hear symphonies visit the great art galleries and museums have some sort of reverent medita tion In church on Sundays and ram ble over the lake district of Eng land t While technocrats may be work ing out some plan of action they have no definite plan now They are beginning to draw some conclus ions but they too aro open for dis cussion They are not proceeding on the assumption of mans desires likes and dislikes They think that man has no control over the world in which he lives I believe that man is greatly in fluenced by his modern instincts and that he has a great deal of control over the conditions of the life in which he lives Observe Gandhi It would be a great experience for technocrats to go to India and sit at the feet of Gandhi to observe his leadership instead of confining themselves to studying only sucn things which are measurable Technocracy believes that the pace in modern activity is set by technical science and that this is ad vanced by laboratory processes which can be controlled But the rules of the business game depend on our conceptions of what Is right and fair and on legal regulation These things we can only change fumbllngly by trial and error not by laboratory rules These changes ne cessarily come slowly The question is Can the rules be changed fast enough to keep up with the game It they cannot there is likely to be revolution The English speaking people however are not a revolutionary minded people They never have had a real revolution The American revolution waa merely a transfer of political allegiance not a tremend ous upheaval such as took place in France or Russia Powers at Work Technocrats do not call this de pression a financial say It is powers at work But they have answer or theory They tell up to stop look and listen They can only present their theories in such a manner that the average person cannot decipher them They have compiled a lot of data but they are not yet prepared to give answers It is no use to merely ask the way out of this depression Wo are like a group of persona lost in the woods Every way is a way out but the question is Where do you want to go Everyone is confused Un til we can ask the question Instead of begging it we have no right to expect ths answer Collego Boy and His Father Discuss Technocracy Club Boys Advised to Tame Calves by Animal Husbandman AMES Dec 28 a native Iowa calf on feed usually is not difficult but 4H club boys with western calves or Iowa calves just in from pasture should take steps to tame them properly Rex Beresford extension animal husbandman at Iowa State college advises The best way to tame a restless calf la to give it some company If possible and confine it in a small stall and pen according to Mr Ber esford Calves fed together almost always gain faster than when fed alone The Iowa State agriculturalist advises oats or a mixture of oats and a good protein supplement as a good starting feed for the calf The calf will start eating oats quicker than any other grain and it is safe to allow him to eat practically all he will take When he becomes ac customed to oats however corn can be added and all or nearly all the oats replaced with corn Crushed corn and cobmeal is an other safe starting feed Union Savings Bank of Davenport Starts Clearing Pass Books DAVENPORT Dec 28 Calm prevailed in Davenport bank ing circles today The Union Savings Bank and Trust company was open and started immediately clearing pass books of depositors In which 40 per cent of their deposits were certified in the new Davenport Bank and Trust company The board of directors of the Union bank this morning adopted a resolution turning the Institution over
