penalty for Volstead act violations the wording is Not to exceed fine and not to exceed five years in the penitentiary If the wording had been Not less than or aot less than five years in the penitentiary there would have been a bill with long teeth in it While it is a move in the direction oC severity in punishment it will still hold that judges in areas where there is little regard for the prohibition amend ment will stick to light penalties whereas those in dry localities will approach the maximum in theiv sen tences One of the first cases decided after this Jones bill became effective was in New York The guilty early got a fine an amount which he can easily pay in one good forenoon of business per week by carrier 15 per year by mail 400 ii months a months 12D 1 month50

HOME TOWN By Stanley IOWAS SUGAR INDUSTRY points in the program of farm relief are more Important to this middlewestern section than that Americas sugarindustry shall be protected from the Importations from other lands where the industry is based on peonage labor charges The farm viewpoint on this question was set forth in this resolution adopted by the American Farm Bureau at its annual meeting in 1928 IVe urge that the situation regarding entry of BUgar into the United States be brot to the atten tion of members of congress without delay and we respectfully ask them to use their best efforts to place a limit on the free entry of sugar from the Philippines and Porto Klco to a point which will guarantee reasonable protection to the United States sugar industry and that the tariff rate against all foreign sugar be increased so as to give adequate protection to this great American enter prise A graphic idea of the problem facing the American producer is contained in the fact that the Cuban manu facturer is able to dock his product at New York at Z cents a pound whereas in this territory the grower of beets alone realizes 3 cents a pound Refining and marketing costs have to be added to this While the consumer of sugar would be affected no more by the protective legislation in question than he Is by the daily fluctuations in price based on market conditions the matter is one of extreme importance to the American sugar industry It amounts almost to or death been thrown into Cuba in quantities and into the other foreign fields in lesser amounts Vigorous methods are being em ployed to remove the limitation on imports from the Philippines on which there has been no duty In the past and to eliminate the tariff on Cuban imports The stakes are high Those with money In Cuban sugar properties are willing to see the domestic indus try wrecked In fact that is the first step ia their little plan One lure is lower price to the consumer but the trap in this is easily discernible As Boon as the home Industry is out of the picture there inevitably would be a substantial price boost to make up for the temporary losses incurred by the fight The consumer would pay dearly in the end Wall street may be counted on to protect its investments irrespective of other considerationa What is Iowas interest in the matter Well this year the sugar refineries In Iowa will handle the product from 30000 acres The output of these plants will be about a fifth of the states total consumption of sugar Thus in possibilities Iowa could support four or five times as many refineries and use all of the sugar produced within its own boundaries But being peculiarly a foodproducing state Iowa should look beyond selfsufficiency Given a fair break a quarter of a million acres of productive Iowa land could Toe devoted each year to the growing of sugar beets and there could be a sugar factory in every sec tion of the state And what would this mean First of all it would mean that a considerable part of the states tillable land would be diverted from cora raising Less of a corn surplus and a better price for the corn raised would be the result Second beets being an unexcelled rotational crop would add appreciably to the peracre yield of other crops Corn raised on beet land showed a 20 bushel superiority over the states average yield per acre in 1927 for example Third considered Independently beets nave a profit making potentiality for the farmer that isnt even ap proached by any the conventional crops That the acreage this year for the plants at Mason City and Belmond will be a half again larger than in any pre ceding year is evidence that this fact is becoming rec ognized Iowa has a large stake in this sugar battle Its in terests are all on the side of preserving the domestic Industry by protecting it from the foreign manufac turer in just the same manner that other industries are protected Its a specific situation Cuban interests demand withdrawal of all restrictions on importations Home producers ave calling for a tariff of about a cent a pound and continued limitation on the Philippine duty free imports lowans should act with a wholehearted firmness to save an important item of the states ag ricultural future This bureau cannot give advice on legal medical and financial matters It does not attempt to settle domestic troubles nor

Finley Dunne Jr succeed Jeff Holmesdale in will the CALORY COUNT IN TAMALE TTBRES a letter that I know without looking at the address comes from California The writer wants to know the caloric contents of Spanish tamales The last time I wrote on tamales I said the next time I was in California I would get one and weigh the contents and estimate the value as accurately as possible without a laboratory I took a trip to California during the holidays and did that little thing for you The tamalcJt examined weighet eight the husks or seven ounces without There were two and onehalf ounces of a corn meal paste which I estimatec about 150 calories The filling con sisted of two and onehalf ounces of mixture of thickened gravy three or four olives a few raisins some beans and a small amount of meat All of this I estimated to be about 250 calories So that would HUNT average about 400 calories for the PETERS M D average sized Spanish tamale None of the food lists gotten out by nutrition labor atories give tamales so apparently they havent yet been tested so I cannot give you a more accurate fig ure than this but if you count approximately 100 cal ories you wont be far wrong cereal bran is 100 calories to twothirds of a cup 11 level The fine feed bran packs down much tighter and so would be 100 calories to about onethird cup The caloric value of a bran muffin depends upon the recipe used and the size of course An average sized muffin is approximately 125 to 150 C Most books on dietetics give lists of 100 caloric por tions of foods We have a list of good books on diet etics

peer about you like that Duck sail he Everything is all right now There is no Two Legs or anyone else for that matter in sight Yoi are safe now I would be the first to warn you it thot there was any danger but I am sure there isn If thinking of your adventure makes you feel so up set dont tell me about it I want to talk now that I have started crle the Duck You would be a bit nervous yourself th if you had been thru all tbat I have today Well anyhow to begin at the beginning I am a stranger in this part of the country My real home Is In the far north but once every year I come to make a short visit to my cousin Wood Duck Wood Duck isnt a very near relative and she does have queer a hollow hole in a willow tree for a nest for Instance instead of makingher home in the grasses And maybe youll not believe me but she actually carries her babies in her mouth from the tree to the water when they are ready to take their first swim I saw her do it last spring with my very own eyes But Cousin Wood Duck has such a lovely disposi ion and is so beautiful to look upon that I put up with her strange ways just for a chance to be in her company once in a while I generally stop off on my spring and autumn trips At this point in Ducks story Peter interrupted crying Who ever heard of a bird carrying her babies In her mouth Why that is what a cat does Tabby al ways carries her kittens around like that Duck paying no attention to Peter however continued his story Next Off Before He Wears Out His Welcome prohibition As authors respectively of the ighteenth amendment and the re ently adopted fiveandten act tiffening the maximum penalty ven for first violations oE Volstead sm Senators Sheppard and Jones perhaps are the two best qualified Tiembers of congress to dispute this antidry both do CTNDEED says Senator Sheppard 1 the crime situation probably would be worse than it Is today but or prohibition At first the vhether crime really has increased as much as has been altho even so he expressed ap roval of the Hoover since there is no reason why we should not desire still better condi tions aa he expressed it On consideration however he in clined to the view that there has after all been an increase in the number of murders this statement in response to the suggestion that the growth in the countrys prison population cannot e due solely to more ncrease in the number of crimes of violence SOME authorities contend that the severity of the Jones fiveand ten law will make convictions far more difficult in liquor cases The law should be thoroly tried first said the senator It may give entirely satisfactory results If not perhaps we shall find it desirable to draw a distinction be tween offenders on a small and a largo we draw a distinc tion between petty and grand lar ceny StTHE JonesStalker law said 1 Senator Jones giving Us full official title to the fiveandten statute is not more severe than the law has been hitherto On the contrary in some respects it is milder It merely gives more discretion to the to a maximum of five years imprisonment 510000 fine or both beginningwith firat offenders I believe we are entirely safe in trusting to the humanity of our judges If a Judge should prove unduly severe In his sentences under the act it would be hard to escape lha conclusion that his severity wns due to hostility toward the law on his own part I think It Is recognized that A why more crimes of violence That replied the Texas sen ator is precisely what we need an investigation to and all other problems Involved in the situation For one thing we obviously need more courts There Is no fault to bo found with those we have already but we have not enough of them Their those who commercialize prohibition violation should ba more rigorously dealt with Harshness in minor cases is not specifically stated OENATOR JONES readily admits J that crime has increased It appears he thinks to be fi postwar development perhaps partly due to the war itself prob ably partly due to the fact that wa live differently today from the lifa of the prewar period Besides we are hampered by legal technicalities While 1 am a friend of our con stitution it may be that one of oui difficulties lies in the fact that our constitution is written Englands is not There there is no getting back of court proceedings Here an appeii s so easy Senator Jones was sponsor at a recent session of congress of a pro posal to limit the right of appeal in certain cases strictly to grounds of aw leaving tho verdicts of Juries unassailable W ILL President Hoovers law en forcement

fathers brother Is that relationship too close to consider marriage WONDERING Puzzling out this relationship puzzle W I reason that your mothers father is your grandfather Your girls father being a brother of your grandfather is your grand or greatuncle So she is a first cousin to your mother and a second cousin to you I guess this is right The marriage of first cousins can be sanctioned if

the feast several demure servitors passed plates contain ing dates which were nicely sugared and pretended to be stuffed with some delicacy The stuffing however was not as delicious as the exterior as
