Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 28, 1933, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas HOME DITION Edited for the Home NEWSPAPEIt THAT VOL XXXIX FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY 28 PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE Reflation Farm Hope So Claims Sponsor Senator Thomas of Oklahoma CHARLES P STEWART WASHINGTON April 28 CPAJ Elmer Thomas of Okla homa who has been engineering reflation in the upper house of up his mind several months ago that cheaper money was the only thing to concen trate on to save American agri culture The farm er might equally tie saved by means of a subsidy he agreed He said it was his judg ment however that the country is not in a mood to acquiesce in a subsidy in any form except that of the tariff What he asked himself THOMAS was to be done He reasoned thus Certain vast interests are in pos session of practically all the money in the country and having a mono poly on it they are letting go of it only on their own hard terms anyone whose position s such that he really is compelled to raise a little cash must pay the vast interests for it in commodities most emphatically through the Hinch Claims Wife LeapecTFrom Aut CROSS EXAMINED ABOUT QUARREL BY PROSECUTION Hinch Claims He Wiped Blood Away From Wifes Face ally i nose as the saying is Diluting Money Without an outright revolution the senator recognized that it would oe impossible to take the vast in terests money away from them but upon due reflection he decided that it would a comparatively simple task to dilute it to such an extent that it would not be worth nearly so much In effect this was the Oklahom ani concept of pro gram of flooding the vast interests qut it taefaiiijbill pending Tin it is scarcely accur ate to describe it as part of the bill rather what is left of the farm bill is part of the reflation pro gram As we know it authorizes the president to reflate or INflate the currency up to a not very clearly defined limit a great deal anyway It undoubtedly will enable agri culture to pay its debts very if the president reflates as much as he is empowered to do The question occurred to me If after that the plan will not increase the prices that the farmers will have to pay as stiffly as it will increase the prices that he can get for his crops and I put this query to the senator Farmers Position The answer Senator Thomas said is that the farmer after his debts are paid is in a position to feed himself Presumably he already has shelter he has no need to dress expensively and consequently he is so situated that he can hold out for a long time while buying al most nothing Meanwhile if he gets good prices he will do tolerably well in the long run But as to the urban workingman whose pay has been cut and whose living costs seem likely to be sharply advanced now He may suffer a temporary pinch conceded the senator but unless agriculture is rescued the whole country will go to smsh ur bn workers and all Be that as it may Senator Thomas is the outstanding cham pion of reflation the one lawmaker to put it across after a generation of efforts by a list of statesmen as long as ones arm BULLETIN The defense in the trial of
