Brookfield Argus (Newspaper) - July 18, 1936, Brookfield, Missouri 99 the of held Abowd volume Liu no. 4346brookfield, Missouri saturday july 18, 1936 Linn county a Only daily newspaper loss to the nations crops is figured at a billion dollars about half of damage due to destruction of Grain. Wheat crop Cut 147 million bushels. Injury to Hay and pasture consid a red next in importance. June yield off one sixth. Chicago july 17.�?the nations losses by reason of crop destruction in the 1936 drouth were conservatively figured this week at More than $1,000,-000,000, of which total about half was incurred by damage to growing Grain in Middle and Northwest America since july i. In addition losses sustained by and forage crops by livestock and by Garden produce incalculable at present were figured in the millions. A sharply higher prices for the grains made some restitution to agriculture Era at least to producers who had. Grain to sell but vast quantities of animal and human food were wiped out at a. Loss that never can be balanced. Based in average prices. Calculation of the monetary loss to United states Farmers was based on the average prices their destroyed Grain should have been Worth at Market. B. W. Snow crop authority made round number estimates of the Droutha a reduction of the Bushel volume of Grain in june. Official and private sources Snow said would indicate that Between june i and july i heat and Lack of moisture were responsible for a shrinkage in the Corn crop proved of at least 300 million bushels. A it should be borne in mind a a he said a that the serious part of the drouth damage has occurred since july i but any attempt to measure that part of the damage would be open to criticism because of Lack of factual knowledge. A the loss in Spring wheat june i to july i is at least 140,000.000 bushels with of course further heavy shrinkage Between july i and the present. Smaller Winter wheat loss. A in the Case of Winter wheat there is a loss of about 7,000,000 bushels when the june Prospect and july Prospect Are figured. A the Grain crop which has suffered most severely has been Oats the heat and drouth being concentrated upon the states that Are important producers of this Cereal. A loss of at least 350,000,000 bushels occurred during the 30-Day period. A in the Case of Rye. There was a shrinkage of at least 7.000.000 bushels. A the Barley loss during that time is a Little More difficult to encompass but an estimate of 20,000.000 bushels would probably be regarded As very moderate. A the fact that the heavy losses in production Are compensated for somewhat by increased Price of the remaining product leaves the crop losses from drouth rather an economic loss shared by the whole country instead of a financial loss to the producers. A it should be made particularly Plain that up to the present time there is no evidence of calamity in the Corn crop while it is quite True that it is starting badly and that a stunted condition of growth is Likely to be reflected by deficiencies in yield at the same time a breaking of the drouth and an experience of moderately Cool weather during the critical period of Masseling could work tremendous improvement in the Corn profit. Hay and pasture losses. Quot perhaps the most serious loss outside of the Spring wheat crop has been the destruction of cultivated Hay crop and the burning of pasture. In the Case of tame Hay figures indicate a loss of 11,000,000 tons or one sixth of the crop during june. While the crop of wild Hay which represents the Winter forage of enormous numbers of animals. Particularly in the Northwest and in the Range territory has been almost divided in half. june i there was a Prospect for 14,000.000 tons and Only july i it was reduced to something like 8,000,000.�?� estimating the Price in Chicago during june the loss on com was $192,000,000 on Oats $98,000,000 on Rye $4,200,000. And on Barley. $8,400, 000. Total for these five crops an aggregate loss of 824.000.000 bushels represented a Market value of $434,900,000. Grain pit experts agreed the loss since july i More than equated that total. An additional $150,000,000 of crop damage was estimated to have occurred in the news summary. Foreign.

Help me to find the lonely heart that i May speak a word of cheer help me to seek the weary and to change a tear to laughter. Give me god each Day desire to do one act unselfishly ,. And then. To give again god make me kind selected a a a a Long line of men stretched for More than a Block on either Side of the door. In one line stood hundreds of negroes and in the other hundreds of White men. I Felt almost ashamed As i looked upon the faces of these unfortunate men. Men who were forced to accept food for which they could not for they were before the door of the helping hand Institute in Kansas City. It was interesting to speculate As to what brought them there and As to a he stations in life from which they came. It was not hard to see that while they had every Mark of defeat and discouragement underneath these Marks in Many cases could be seen the evidence of the refinement of their former life. It seemed unkind to gaze upon their misery and i went my Way sorrowfully yet glad that there was a place for these men to go. Not Only did i consider the condition of the men but i speculated As to who was responsible for the food which they were Given. I was not thinking of those who directed the Institute but of the Many who gave out of More or less abundance to make the Institute possible. In the line one Day was a former business Man of Brookfield. A Man once prominent in the affairs of his City now a recipient of Charity among the disheartened and dejected of a Large City. Calling him by name he was asked Why he was there and he answered. A because i have no other place to or i saw him attempt to Roll a cig Aret. Fumbling and Uncertain he seemed to be spilling More tobacco than he was saving. A Tom a i said a you Are nervous you Are spilling your he almost wept As he answered. A i ought to be. I have not eaten for two i was ashamed that my own stomach was full err it is a fact that most elderly people do not eat a great Deal. But when the old couple sat Down to the evening meal and there was nothing to eat but pancakes it did not seem right. Pancakes Are Good to eat. They Are nourishing too. But they had no butter or butter substitute no syrup no spread of any kind for their poor pancakes. A prominent business Man heard about them and immediately rent them a Bill of food. There was no fanfare of trumpet about the gift but what Joy the kindly and gracious gentleman must have received because he Vas willing and could give. As i thought of the Many instances of kindly giving and of instances of giving grudgingly i breathed a prayer that i might always be Able to give and that i might give with a kindliness of spirit that would suggest the giver of a i Good gifts. Someone has raid a there is a gift that is almost a blow and there a kind word that is munificence a and a the gives most who gives and i thought of the Christ who so Long ago said.

O., july 17.�?trouble threatening the Townsend convention from several fronts was staved off Here today. Endorsements of political parties and National candidates were barred. Demonstrations were prohibited. And a breach within the organization was temporarily healed. A under the strict control of or. Francis e. Townsend originator of the movement the convention was swung into the Channel of its pre determined five Day program which held it almost entirely to discussion of its own doctrines and activities. There were hours and hours of speaking and singing but there were no outbreaks of violent oratory such As marked each of the two preceding Days. Putting on the lid did not change the general situation. The triple support of the Townsend recovery plan. The Huey Long a share the wealth orces. And father Coughlin a National Union for social Justice still is behind the Lemke of Brien Union party ticket but a persistent Effort was made to subordinate that thought in the minds of the delegates for the time being. There were indications that the Townsend control regretted some of the events of the last two Days specifically the opening of the doors to father Coughlin and his bitter a betrayer liar and double crosser attack on president Roosevelt and his vehement plea for support of the proposed new Union party. Would censor speeches. It was considered most significant that at the close of the afternoon session one of the speakers. Edward Margett whom or. Townsend personally introduced As his a right hand Man in californian and the a greatest trouble shooter of them All a advocated the passage of a Resolution at the next convention to require every speaker to submit his manuscript for approval before he is allowed on the platform. Margett also took a fling at the third party proposal. A if you believe a third party is needed a he shouted a you need not go outside our own organization for a candidate a see peace with Smith. The convention took this As he had intended it a reference to or. Townsend and cheered heartily but the aged Leader looked on with a Stony face. It was while Margett was speaking that ocular evidence appeared of at least a temporary peace Between or. Townsend and the vice president of the organization Gomer Smith of Oklahoma whom Townsend declared last Light he would oust from office because of his bitter attack on the Rev. Gerald l. K. Smith heir to Huey Long a Mantle in the share the wealth movement who now is a director of the Townsend recovery plan. Following his outburst Smith left the convention yesterday. He could not be found when or. Townsend wanted to fire him. But during Margetts speech he quietly walked out on the platform passed behind or. Townsend and took a prominent seat. He was asked what it meant. He thinks its Over. A i think its All Over that ill remain in office a he said. There is still the meeting of the Board of directors in which Townsend says he will maintain his position that Homer Smith should resign from his office in which he will ask his hand picked directors to Back Bim up. But Smith said he intends to go to that meeting if one is held and he believed no action would be taken. . Townsend said his position had not changed. But the indications Are that the organization again is under control. One of the masons for forbidding demonstrations was the presence in Cleveland of Robert e.
