Lusitania anniversary. The Twenty fourth anniversary yester Day of the sinking of the Lusitania takes this nation Back to the Days when Succes Sive raids on Commerce by German sub marines nurtured hatreds that led to a diplomatic break and America s entry into the world War. Trie British Cunard liner was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine May 7, 1915, off the Southern coast of Ireland with a death toll of 1,154, of whom 755 were passengers 114 of them americans. The armistice demanded that Germany give up All of the submarines she had. The first instalment consisted of 20 ves Sels surrendered at a designated rendezvous off Harwich. Later on it was found she had an additional 102 completed and 170 uncompleted in her territorial Waters. It was estimated that Germany lost 210 a boats during the War. Considering the v e r s a i l l e s treaty scrapped Chancellor Hitler has hurried along rearmament and Only recently told Britain that their naval Accord May no longer be considered a valid agreement. Submarines and Raider vessels such As pocket warships Are being built. They fit into the German plan to shut off the flow of supplies by boat to her enemies. This anniversary of the Lusitania tragedy finds Powers piling up weapons of death along Borders where salvages Are reclaiming for Metal rusted guns of the last War. On land and sea the War lesson of a Quarter Century ago is interpreted not As a need for peace but the need of overcoming tactical and arms failures of the last one for Only prepared Ness meets the threat of the pacemaker. Always in session. America s supreme tribunal is always in session. Ordinarily we expect its decisions Only every other year on the first tuesday after the first monday in november but it s not such a slow moving and Cumber some body As might be supposed for it does t take an election Day for Public opinion to assert itself. Nor will its decisions be dictated so Long As democracy s fundamentals of free speech and a free press remain unshackled. When Public resentment to a political move is solidified it amounts to the Over ruling of that practice and Quick action May be expected if the party in Power wants to continue As the instrumentality through which people May govern them selves. Modern methods of sampling Opin Ion in different parts of the country Are a Handy reference for the politician today and he needs not return to his Home District to find that indignation has stemmed from some political economic or social scheme. Behind the plow around the stove at a Crossroads store in an interurban bus or in a businessmen s club Are being formulated daily definite opinions on Domestic and International affairs which Are not to be taken lightly nor belittled. A nation of people Able to read and understand and look sympathetically at others problems is Able to Render perhaps a broader and truer opinion of affairs than a select few influenced by lobbies that clamor in legis native and executive Halls. Proposals emanating from Congress and the White House these Days seem to be tempered a Little More than a few years ago with a realization that the Public will continue to assert its demands and attempt to defend itself from encroachment upon its Freedom. Taxpayers and business How Ever Are watching with anxiety to learn whether the promises they have been Given will materialize into honest and con Crete efforts toward betterment of their plight. The great mass opinion that has been aroused will not be satisfied with unctuous words nor can Bland radio chats and Distant War Drums silence the cres Cendo of demands for business like conduct of Public affairs. Advocates eating More Bukad. Those who Are seeking a solution for the problems of wheat Farmers would do Well to stress a Point made in an address a few Days ago by or. James a. Tobey of new York an authority on nutrition. He was speaking from the standpoint of development and maintenance of s t r o n g bodies when he urged eating of More bread As a contribution to nutrition but wheat Farmers would be beneficiaries in that their Market would be considerably expanded. It is common knowledge that bread is a Foremost component of military rations since it provides concentrated food Energy at Low Cost. Those who were civilians Dur ing the world War will recall that they were asked to eat bread sparingly so that troops could be supplied. Food habits and tastes were altered to some extent As a result and with the return of european countries to the substantial production of wheat Large surpluses have been frequent. We have one at present with prices correspondingly depressed. There Are other aspects of the farm problem among them the widespread use of motorized vehicles and implements in both town and county As replacements of equipment utilizing to r. Be s and mules whose subsistence came from the land. Some scientists favor the use of Grain Energy As a motor fuel component and the proposal holds much possibility. Materially increasing our consumption of bread however would be an immediate Boon to both health and farm markets. Or. Tobey who Points out that our per capita use of bread is Only a third of that of France and Italy and but half of the Brit ish figure thinks it would be to our material advantage to eat 15 billion loaves annually compared with 10 at present. He depicts it As a top ranking Energy food an essential foundation for the so called protective foods that Are Rich in vitamins and minerals among them milk eggs fruit and vegetables. The state department must be backing Down when it considers a 12-mile territorial Waters defense zone. We had been led to believe our Frontier was the French German Border. Hitler sent von Papen to straighten out matters with Turkey. England however is positive that he can t make a Turkey Goose step. Dictators and Fai Emkus. I Secretary Wallace of the department of agriculture is reputed to have said recently that the plight of american banners is due to the is implied of course that Secretary Wallace had reference to the dictators of Europe. While he did not name the particular dictators common knowledge of the Situa Tion on the european continent suggests lie had fuehrer Hitler and Premier Mussolini of Germany and Italy respectively in mind. In just what manner these dictators have proceeded with their programs of expansion and annexation of other countries and districts to jeopardize the american Farmers interests is not detailed. The remark May be considered in tiie Light of a generality in order to distract the attention of american Farmers from their individual troubles at present. In the absence therefore of any direct reference to names it is observed that Secretary Wallace might have referred to the dictators in the City daily Star. Migu Atoy Waves the novel and its movie ver Sion were doubtless recalled by Many observing Oklahoma s fiftieth anniversary Celebration. It was in 1889 that the picturesque run occurred when More than 200,000 homesteaders swarmed Over 2,000,000 acres of Cen tra Oklahoma and staked thousands of acres in claims. Oklahoma City and Guthrie which had been villages at Dawn were cities of 10, 000 persons at Nightfall. Unparalleled in american history the run. Authorized by the Federal government marked the first mass penetration of Indian territory by White settlers. Conquest of the last frontiers is suggested in thoughts which the anniversary prompts. There May even be a thought or two about the indians and How the Whites have con fined them successively in smaller and smaller concentration Camps ignoring such unpleasant subjects there is interest in migrations which have come about far. More recently than 50 years ago. A regional planning conference being held this week in Seattle has As one of its chief topics the problem presented by the migration into the Northwest Region which has proceeded during the last few years. George f. Yantis is chairman of the regional planning commission now in session and he describes the situation thus certainly More than 150,000 persons have come to the Pacific Northwest to stay since 1930. The majority of these people undoubtedly Aje intelligent industrious and anxious to establish permanent Homes. We must press for Ward with the development of our natural resources and thereby provide More economic opportunities so that newcomers May lie absorbed without displacement or other disadvantages to people already the depression years have had marked effect upon migration within the country from Section to Section not alone from coun try to City. Frontier Days Are Long since Over and the opportunities which unexploited k sources provided Are gone. But where even the slightest of opportunities have beckoned people have been moving in order to better themselves. No Section of the country has noted the effects of that trend More than the Pacific Northwest and state planning officials there have for some time been puzzled by the problems which have followed this mod Ern variation of earlier pioneering along the Oregon Minneapolis Tribune. Not even a Chance to practice j 19sj. The Public Ledger h Askin i letter try i be Heitic a Ila Siton. Rural districts need better housing. Washl Ngann d. C., May 8. Better housing is a term now of ton used. By implication 11 Means More Acle Lite shelter for nil the people but y application its scope is greatly nor Roihl and usually Means housing for Urban and Industrial workers whose income is insufficient to Fin Ilc them to pay for decent housing it prices charged by private enter prise concern for those poorly housed dwellers found expression in the Wii it housing act passed by con re or two years ago. The net com. Kilts Tho country to a policy of furnishing decent housing to these groups by. Means of whatever govern ment subsidy is necessary. Decent housing is thought of in the act As being socially necessary. Thus Ade quate housing for Low income groups is declared by National legislation to for general welfare then is. However no conviction or provision in a he measure regarding the housing of those who dwell in Rural iras. In the discussions of housing legislation in Congress it is not recorded that n single member made reference to better housing for for the Rural population. Advocates of the measure stressed the importance of slum clearance meaning by that term clearance of slums in a tors. Particularly Largo cities. Foundations have spent Large sums in experiments for better housing for City dwellers but so far no of for t has in made for in Experiment in uses for the Rural poor. The reason for this unconcern about the Rural Dweller is not d i f f ice l t to see. There is a sentimentalism in America about the country As u place in which to live. The City Dweller is constantly thinking of fresh air Sunshine and the Core free life of his Rural dwelling neighbor. Moreover the City Dweller thinks of Thise things As n satisfactory substitute for a l iving Inge.

A Reader can pet the answer to any question of fact by or i t ing the Gazette information Bureau Frederic j. Haskin director Washington i. 1 Eliise enclose three 3 cents for reply. 1.

The movement for the revival of the old fashioned mass Harmony singing began in Benlon in 1884 when James r. Lemon his brother George and a few others gathered at the old Beniton Seminary and snug songs cheapest material available lacking in both the Beauty and the sub Stan Tia Lity which c h a r a c t e r z e Rural houses in Europe where better construction and landscape practices make Rural cottages in England and farm houses in Denmark among the most Beautiful dwelling places in the world. But notwithstanding the poor Type of construction on Rural houses in the United states there is much written and said about Fine old coun try Homes. These have been All but immortalized in books and pictures. Their number however is exceedingly Small in comparison to Rural housing needs. Moreover most of these old Homes Are rapidly decaying and with few exceptions Are without modern facilities. Farm Homos Are Low in value. For example the average farm dwelling in the South is Worth 5 550 average Hoise of farm renter. 8350. Over half the Farmers in the South Are tenants who live in the latter Type. Nearly one f i f the of nil Southern farm houses have no toilet facilities even of the most primitive Type. The South however is not alone in the picture of Rural slums. They Are found More or less in every state but the most serious plight is that of the migrant farm families who follow seasonal crops to obtain employment in planting and harvesting seasons. The largest number of these Are to be found on the Pacific coast where in California alone migrant farm families d r i f t ing from crop to crop have reached the total of 250.000 people. Wherever there is work for a few Days or a few weeks the family settles Down either in a ragged tent or under the open sky be t t i no their water from an irrigation ditch or any near by Stream. Such families arc also to be found in Arizona Idaho Washington Ore gon. Texas. Florida and new Jersey. There Iro 500,000 of thess migratory families in the United states or 2, 000,000 men women and children or i f t ing around in search of seasonal labor. The number of these migrant workers is increasing it the rate of something like 100,000 a year. The scale of l iving of a european peasants luxury compared to that of these families. Three Mil l Ion dwellings required. Whether landowner tenant Farmer or migratory worker Rural housing presents both a problem and an Opportunity. The Federal government has in various parts of the country in recent years built some 14,000 houses for farm families but this is not n fringe of the need. Indeed it is scarcely a demonstration. Three million new dwellings would be required to House with any sort of decency the country s farm popu lation. The work and materials Nec Essary for such a Gigantic under taking stagger the imagination and inc doubts that it would revive siness in an unprecedented Man Ner. The fact is. That architects. And builders have not found How to get a House cheap enough to be paid for out of the average farm income. This s the problem which confronts those note rested in improving housing conditions for Rural families. It is Tho problem that seems inescapable u the Standard of living in Tho United states is to be maintained and if Lum clearance is to mean All that k implies.

But not Bein a fool when he s through his sear Chine dumps it out on the Road for some one to find so s Well think that it was just kids havin risk involved would t he have done the same Kay said if he it got the right figure sure. He d have dumped that after he got the shells. But it come Over me sudden about Lane fix in pm an i just wondered if there was t a Chance the Feller got fooled. If a Pranky soul was after pm they d take the one nearest the Road not this that was farthest away. Would t have gone at my tires so careful so s not to be Fol Lowed in Case of a slip. There was a risk involved in stealing that Fig ure but it was important enough to him to take it. Well Lane there you Are. That s How Mary Randall was killed. There s your in t there a Chance that he might come Back for the other Fig ure Kay asked. He might. Stick Emback Ham Ilton an have someone watch. But i Don t think hell be Back. He � ought to be disposing of his shot gun. If you had t talked so about that figure fallin. Lane i d have passed this off As kids. After All we can t prove your car was taken even though we know it. Mayba Kay an i followed two other cars. Maybe Sammy slashed the tires. But Well we found the shells. Now All you got to do is to find a gun that that s Lane s laugh was hollow. That s All. But one thing i know those shells did t come from Jane s gun. Altogether Dif Ferent Mark. Well play with pm for prints. Why do you suppose Asey after stealing Jane a that is Slades gun. Another was used a raps he preferred his own to a mail order one Asey said. A raps it was just his idea to Plant All he could on Jane in passin what i d like to Kay said How did he manage to get Back so quickly if he took Lane s car alter he whizzed by us Asey said after the Axle broke he might have turned right around. Might have been the first car that passed by us. Can t Tell. Prob by he d already thrown the figure out by then Lane.
