Obey god and he will reveal to the truth of his Eerde Taoping a the truth of his deepest teach 237 voting for it. If this Bill becomes Law it will open the Way for More congressmen to place More members of their own families on the Federal payroll. Instead of increasing the clerical hire for the members Congress might do Well to investigate the services the people get now from clerks already on the payroll. Several years ago the scandalous selfishness Manifest in the distribution of the jobs permitted under the Law was exposed by journalists who bared the extent of nepotism practice by congressmen. This revelation embarrassed a few of thinner crusts but we doubt if it had much practical effect upon the custom of loading the payroll with relatives.

Quips Art made it the expense of the pharmacist As he is accused of Selling virtually All comm Orth in other than drugs. Truly he has become an Impi Octant outlet a for goods to the consumer in a wide Range of commodities but he has not neglected the original service of the apothecary. As a matter of fact while he needs and has Many assistants the Man with the pharmacists schooling and skill remains a fixture in the Moilen Ding store and is perhaps a better chemist than his prot Otylie of the Dingy diggings. Pharmacy a beginning is lost in the prehistoric experiences of Man. Prescription formulae Between 5,000 and 6.000 years old attest the ancient Ness of one of the services required of the pharmacist. The beginning was in the borderline bet Wen superstitious Healing rites and the germinating science of Medicine.

It were More accurate to report that he played the Harmonica and spoke Here. The late Erwin Avery Charlotte observer columnist wrote about the Banjo picking of a distinguished College professor of his Day As peculiarly endearing him to the people.

A the movement to scrap the Central part of the administrations farm program and set fixed prices at a level which would guarantee the Farmer against loss is by no Means dead. The Senate a recent passage of the $1,218, 000.000 farm Bill May even have helped the movement along. For the fixed Price plan has a talking Point it does not re quire heavy annual payments or Loans to i Farmers. Nor for that matter does it require subsidizing of 8 exports. It finances the itself out of taxes of the processors a and whatever these might Braw cow. No to the consumer they at Lacast would take a Load off of the Federal Treasury. The fixed Price plan takes two forms tile Cost of production plan and the Domestic allotment plan. Similar in effect these two schemes seek to reach the same goal by slightly different routes. A Cost of production plan introduced in the House by congressman Sam Massingale of Oklahoma has been pigeonholed by the agriculture committee and a petition to discharge the Hill from committee and bring it to the floor of the House for debate and a vote is now being circulated. A similar Hill is pending in the Senate. Differences in schemes Domestic allotment Bills have been Ini induced in the Senate by senators Wheeler of Montana and let of Oklahoma. Domestic allotment Bills have been introduced in the Senate by senators Wheeler of Montana and Lee of Oklahoma. The fundamental idea in All of these Bills is that it is perfectly possible to figure out Bot the average Normal coat of production of a Given farm commodity and the average Normal amount of that commodity we hich is consumed annually in the Domestic Market. With those two figures worked out the proposal is to fix a Domestic Price minimum apportion to each Farmer his share of the Market and permit him to sell his share at the minimum Price level. Whatever he had to sell above his pro rata share would be sold in the world Market for whatever Price he could get. Differences Between the Cost of production and Domestic allotment plans Are chiefly these 1. The Cost of production Bill Cox Era All crops with an annual value of $10,000,000 or More. The Domestic allotment plan thus far covers Only two a wheat and Cotton. 2, a under each plan the Secretary of agriculture would fix the percentage of a Given commodity needed for Domestic consumption. Say he put this at 80 per cent. Under the Cost of production scheme the Farmer could get the fixed minimum Price for 80 per cent of his crop whether it was 1000 bushels or 10,000. Under the Domestic allotment plan he could get the Price for 80 per cent of his a production basis a a figure which would be based on his farm s average production Over a period of years. If his production basis was 2000 bushels for instance he we Ould get the Price for 1600 bushels and no More. 3.�?the Domestic allotment plan was a sliding scale provision which would try to Reserve More of the Domestic Market for the Small Farmer the Cost of production plan does not. I under the Cost of production plan it we Ould be to the Farmers interest to sell his entire crop promptly. For his percentage would be Fig ured on his actual sales at the elevator. Under the Domestic allotment plan the Farmer would have a fixed quota and could if he pleased withhold the rest of his crop from the Market a storing it on the Chance that the world Price might Rise using it for Stock feed or keeping it As a carry Over in Case of a crop failure the following year. Agriculture Racks Bills senator wheelers Bill deals with wheat and senator Lee s with Cotton. Both Are backed by substantial farm organizations including the Farmers Union. The National Grange has endorsed the Cost of production Bill. A both the Cost of production and Domestic allotment Bills a says senator Lee a agree As to the farm Price level a they agree that it ought to be higher. They also agree on the fundamental principle that the american Market should be guaranteed to the american Farmer at this higher Price underlying the whole movement for some sort of a fixed Price policy is a widespread feeling among farm Belt senators and representatives that the administrations farm program has failed. They Praise its soil conservation features and most of them give the administration credit for making an honest Effort and practically All say that they will vote for the administration program if no alternative is offered on the ground that it is better than nothing. But the Effort to put through a program which will put farm prices up More effectively than the Wallace program has done is still being made and the final showdown is yet to come. My definition of writers As a Cli is that they Are a race of gifted babblers whose chief service or contribution to the state is their nuisance value. Lin Yutang gifted Chines philosopher author
