who otherwise was due to go 100 per cent overboard but 50 per cent less than none to the one who hoped to he retained 100 per cent on the pay roll In other words the notion was to make labor bear the whole expense of the depression No Waije Cuts President Roosevelt proposes that hours or days shall be cut with no cut in wages Which from the employers stand point must be equivalent to a stiff

pressure to maintain these plants at full capacity production regard less of actual defense needs and the result will be to encourage arma ment rather than disannamnt The minority it con tinued that

farmers for hogs should not be below the average of 1935 unless new hog pro cessing taxes are levied he said Keep Marketings Down The elimination of the old pro cessing tax of a hundred pounds plus the expected increase in domestic demand for pork dur ing 1936 should tend to offset all tendency of the increased market ings to reduce hog prices paid to Roberts explained Already the due Iowa

feed grains and live stock and therefore no powerful impetus to overexpand livestock In an analysis of the effects of the invalidated AAA reports said cornhog program cash benefits helped Iowa farmers
