Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - February 1, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma EXTRA CONGRESS, EXTRA TROUBLE. PROSPERITY'S BACH hQG, MR. LUCEY HALF RIGHT. WISE KING AMANULLAH. ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER VOLUME 29. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1929. NUMBER 52. F. F. O. Future Farmers of Oklahoma lo be an extra session of Congress, so well informed Washington reports, and the farmer will wait for relief until the new Can-gress gathers. Mr. Hoover probably wishes that milestone were passed. The farm question is this: How can yon make those engaged in a thoroughly disorganized haphazard industry as prosperous as those in industries thoroughly organized on a scientific productibn and scllin;: basis? Changes in the tariff are predicted. "Big financial and industrial interests feel that tariff changes are needed." If they feel that way the changes will be made, and probably should be made. Big business has its faults but it knows what the country needs realizing that the big man can get only his part of what the little man can earn. , S\yect* Clover". Sweet clover is a biennial widely distributed along roadsides and in waste places over Southern Canada, and a large part of the United States thriving best on soils rich in lime It will grow in soil so poorly drained or so worn out and low in humus that alfalfa will not"live. It may be used for pasture, hay or silage and has occasionally been en siled. -Dalton Eads. STEPS TAKEN TO PROVIDE A NEW SERVICE All of our prosperity comes down to the fact that people EARNING more can SPEND more. Mr. Ecker of the Metropolitan Life company puts it this way: "The people earn fifteen to" twenty billions more than it costs them to live. Those extra billions are prosperity's back log." Medium Red Clover. This clover, commonly known simply as red clover, is said to be the most important legume in the humid sections of the northern two thirds of the U. S. when grown in rotation with corn and the cereals,-it is said lo serve for hay and pasture. Red clover is said to be usually seeded with timothy over 19,000,000 acres of clover and timothy reported grown in the U. S. in 1919, compared to somewhat over 3,000,000 acres of clover alone. It is said to do best'in well drained soils rich in lime, not thriving in water-logged or acid soils. Robert DeLozier. Postmaster Byrl Cox has started a campaign to get mail carried in and out of Stilwell by bus, according to an interview yesterday. "We really dispatch one mail north each day and letters are offer delayed 12 hours in getting lo S. Louis on account of this," he said. Since the Flying Crow does not stop here, it picks up only one pouch and that one must be made up at night. With the right kind of bus service, mail could be sent to Muskogee for points in that direction. Mail could go by bus to Watts and there put on the fast train for points east. Mail could go to Sallisaw by bus and make the' trans there on boili the K. C. S. and the Missouri Pacific Lines. This is one of the greatest forward moves in mail service that could be had for Stilwell, and every patron of the office should help Mr. Cox in every possible way to get this service established.. STILWELL Ten Years Ago This Week Taken from the Files of the STANDARD-SENTINEL An engineer has been employed by the county commissioners to make a survey for the highway soutn of town. The money is in the treas nry for extensive work in the county and work on the road to the south will be pushed.

Mr. Lucey, the old Northampton cobbler who knew President Cool-idge when a boy, is supposed to have given little Calvin this advice, "Keep your* shoes laced tight, and never let ypur tongue wag." President Coolidgc took that good advice about the tongue. There is no information as to the advice von-cerning shoes. Cowpeas; The soil that is best adapted to the growing of cow peas is clay loam of limestone formation. The peas thrive best in calcareous soils. Where the soil is not of limestone formation lime should be added to the soil. -John Holloway.

H. Sixkiller, court clerK-According to the brief, the Cherokee nation is entitled to more than $10,634,000.00 from the government on account of ilegal claims allowed at various times. i The case was filed January 17 and lawyers have been working on it for some time. Congressman Has tings looked over the brief and expressed himself as pleased with the manner in which it was gotten up, according to a letter written by the attorney. It is not known at present how many Cherokees are on the roll, but it has been placed by some at near 30,000. PTTOt DOME Amanullah came back from his visit to England wearing European clothes, his wife fashionably dressed, short skirts, silk stockings, noth ing to.cover flp her face. He announced that women in Af-khanistan were also to go with their faces uncovered, no more "seclusion." Tribes rose against him, armed, drove him into a fortress. King Amanullah changed his mind and Afghan,girls sent to be cducat. ed in the modern way in Turkey are to come home. European dress is to be abolished. Soldiers of Afghanistan are to be allowed to follow and bow down to their religious leaders, the Holy, men or Pirs, and women will be kept in seculsion. All the suggested reforms will be thrown overboard. Wise Amanullah, he wanted peace. Pt-cparat'.on for Alfalfa. Alfalfa may be successfully grown after almost any crop provided the proper attention is given to the preparation of the soil 'after the pre ceding crop has been removed. In deciding upon the preceding crop, however, one should be chos en that fits best into the particular system of farming and at the same time leaves the land in good condi t:on for alfalfa. Due consideration also should be given to the time available for pre paring the seed bed for alfalfa after the preceding crop has geen harvest ed.

Tlic tariff tinkcrers are getting their tools out and making ready to go over the old machine again, but it is not believed that the revision will be, possible before the ending of the present session and that if tiny tinkerin gis done it must be at the special session" where the the farm relief question is also to be threshed out . A higher tariff on many imports while it might protect the higher prices of our home industries is going to create an antagonistic feeling in the eotintires who aPe walled oft by such action. One South American diplomat remarked a few days;| ago thai "a revision of tariff increasing duties on goods from South America will do 'moire toward destroying good will than the Hoover trip did to build it up." While. Cuba has already sent a note of protest against the higher tariff against her sugar; even Canada lifts her voice in protest. After so long u time Hoy O. West, Insulls handy man who was -appointed Secretary of the Interior; by President Coolidge, has been confirmed by the Senate. However his friends were not brave enough to-do this in the open and the confirmation vote which stood 54 to 27 was taken behind closed doors and | all efforts of the progressive group to "tell the world" who voted for the confirmation were futile, the vote remains secret. The Federal Trade commission in, its search for light digs up evidence that the power trust is-now undertaking to say what shall and what; shall not appear in fiction. A>rp* cent story appearing in th� Saturday Evening Post tending to showl the tendency of the trust lo grab f everything in sight caused M. H. Aylesworth of the N. E. L. A. to fiioJ protest of acceptance of such articles. - . . Congressman Free, California, hasl introduced a resolution asking fori an investigation of the acts of the'l Radio commission in granting 40| short wave channels to the Universal Wireless Company while oth-| er companies are refscd the purivi-| lege of getting on the air at all. Secretary Mellon's Aluminum trust! seems to be getting mixed up in thel tariff flight too. The parent com-| pany which is made*up of the aluminum interests of the United States is asking Congress to protect the aluminum trade of the U. S. by a higher tariff, and at the same time they are shipping their output to Canada and selling it in competition with? ^the Canadian manufacturers .Now the Canadian aluminum company is also a Mellon corporation and has a lobby in the Canadian? liament undertaking to get a pre^ tective tariff against the U. S. output. So it would seem that if the! tariff can be increased each coni--| pany will be in position to hike the prices without 'sending even one| coffee pot across the tariff line. Although President Coolidge \hasl just recommended the expendiigjjtfju of $175,000,000 for new battle shlps| he is successfully blocking the sage of an amendment to the retire ment bill affecting government; ployees that-would permit the.;ir tiremeut of employees at the age^vbf 68 instead of 70 years and at a pcn| sion of $1200 per year insWd|;$| $1000 as at present.
