average farmer in this section is in slightly better financial condition than he was a year ago and indications are that the improvement will continue Shows Gratifying Increases Sol Algase general manager of Davidson company business in 1833 showed a gratifying increase over 1832 The government In its efforts to assist the farmer is pouring money into the midwest and this movement already is bearing fruit1 Give the farmer money and he will spend it We are going along with the NRA but it is our opinion that the government has removed to much of the responsibility of the successful operation of a business from the owners hands N Dewlnd president Pamons company speak ing I believe there is feeling of op timistic expectancy abroad in the country today which was absent a year ago J

IOWA PROPOSED State Owned Plants Urged as Way to Solve Liquor Control Problem DES MOINBS Dec 16 State owned and operated distiller ies as one means of solving the liquor control problem in Iowa is being considered by a member of the committee on liquor control The distilleries would be under the supervision of a state liquor com mission and would be erected by an appropriation from the general funds The distillery products would be sold at a net profit of 10 per cent which would be in Heu of any other taxes or license fees Commission of Five The commission of five members would be appointed

1933 By Associated Tlcsst WASHINGTON Dec 16 NRAs blue eagle will continue to continue to fly after Dec 31 and a program soon will be announced to extend the presidents reemploy ment agreement for the trades and industries which do not have codes in effect on that day The blue eagle agreements were sent out in August Millions of bus inessmen signed their names in a promise to comply with the higher wage shorter hours requirements until the last day of the year when agreements expire They prom ised also to help get their trades organized for code purposes Under Permanent Codes Today many of those business men are under permanent codes Thousands more probably will be by the end of the year But there will remain a resldlum of uncoded indus tries groups with codes pending but not approved or not even in formulation The administration has no inten tion of letting these slip away from tie reemployment rally for a pos sible new competitive reduction of wages Further and despite the chiseling going on for which blue eagles now are being ordered down daily officials insist the emblem of cooperation has real trade value Pay Back Wages They cite as evidence two prin cipal recent occurrences A big candy store chain was deprived of the eagle for paying waitresses hardly more than half the required rate It appealed tor reinstatement the same day and later agreed to pay back wages to all hands for a month Before the eagle was or dered down from the store of a chiseler in a small eastern city more than 1000 people signed a petition asking that the merchant be disciplined Half a dozen smaller merchants who had been deprived of the sign went to great lengths to get it back again The plan for continuance is not yet clearly formed The simplest method is to proclaim by regulation and public announcement that con tinued display binds the employer to stick to the agreement terms either until his code becomes effec tive or for a period fixed by the president Other Proposals Made An appeal to all employers to ontinue and to Uu public to keep buying under the blue eagle would accompany this Another idea being studied for distribution of new agreement jlanks to get signatures all over again Where a code has been approved t is proposed that new blue eagle emblems be sent out bearing the words member retail code or whatever code the diaplayer may belong to Display of these would constitute voluntary subscription to the code on the part of the em ployer using it and would bind him to compliance White read into the record the law which did not give the highway commission this right until 1951 The farm was purchased in 1929 SENATE VOTES FOR PRIVILEGES Continued From FaKe 1 local option was being subjected to close study by the committees and members Working In committee of

attention There also developed during the week an ap parent attempt to line up gross in come tax advocates behind the Farm Bureau classified transactions tax plan Out of yesterdays session there developed strength in favor of leav ing the net personal income tax pro visions of S F 1 the interim com mittee bill unchanged However major test on this bill will come next week in consideration of

because the highway commission bought a grav el pit They all know it was practi cally impossible to operate a pit In competition with the other plants he said Representative Sours of Floyd questioned
