or any other reason And theres no indication that he would change his ways were he to become a member of the presidents official family Team work plays a large part in Mr Roosevelts conception of the duties of the members of his ad ministration As to Woodin As for Secretary Woodin the sit uation apparently remains un changed Reports still persist that his resignation will be in tSa hands of the president before very long But these reports are met by de nials The secretarys recent illness which has kept him from his post for many weeks has tended to In crease speculation It has been often said that Wood in reluctantly accepted the treasury post In the first place It is alSo known that the president is deeply attached to him The work that he did during the turbulent first days of the adminis tration when frantic efforts were being made to save the nations banking structure apparently won for him a lastingplace in the presi dents esteemt presidential reemployment agree ments would be disciplined if it were found they were not comply ing with their pledge to raise wages and increase employment by short ening work hours He added however he intended to let the situation rest for a brief period in the hands of local com mittees Time Is Coming But the time is coming John son said when somebody is going to take one of these blue eagles off of someones window in a clear cut case

Proposed Projects Part of Program to Start at Once AMES Aug 11 pending revolution im in American economic life was envisioned here today by Dr O R Sweeney head of chemical engineering research at Iowa State college Instead of segregation of large number of people in cities where the cost of supporting a man in creases in proportion to size of the city Dr Sweeney would scatter the population over the countryside He would have industry decen tralized factories located nearer sources of raw material and factory workers near the nations food sup Iy Transportation cost a large factor in the spread between the arm and consumer prices would be practically eliminated Dcliciitc Move Commenting on President Roose velts back to the farm movement in connection with his pan Dr Sweeney said The back to the farm movement is a delicate one It is a fact that we probably already are overpro ducing on the farm Secretary of Agriculture Wallace and the presi dent want to put a considerable tV We to put bacl on the farm and at the same time reduce production it seems to lead to two alternatives Report of Information Reports of Information of local UA committees were beinr re ceived At Burlington E L Nau mann former county supervisor was named chairman Bnd at New ton Norman Dewind headed a lo cal NRA group Action by General Hugh Johnson In summary form the two alter natives outlined by Dr Sweeney Tivo Alternatives 1 Development of more efficient farming methods includingshorter hours and more intensive farming 2 Decentralization of industry to provide means of absorbing surplus farm labor in slack seasons Regarding decentralization of in dustry Sweeney continued The segregation of our popula tion in cities has become very great with the result that living costs show astounding increases As an other result we find farmers pro ducing materials and being forced to sell for less than cost This great spread in cost from the farm to the city goes to large transportation costs storage refrigeration and DES MOINES Aug 1J Iowas public works advisory coir mittee started consideration of prc posed projects today indicating tha part of the program wi be started at once A number of the

that if fac tories were scattered throughout the country the population would be decentralized and the people closer to the food supply The farm er could charge more for his pro duce and the consumers would get It for less than they are payinp now Regarding the location of factor ies Dr Sweeney said that billions of tons of socalled agricultural waste materials in the midwest could provide the basis of a factory system that would answer purposes of his plan Packing houses soap factories soy bean product mills edible fats and other farm supply using fac tory units could all be decentral ized and put into farming communi ties The ease with which electric power is distributed eliminates trouble from the question of power he said Survey of History It is a significant fact that a survey history shows every na tion with its population segregated in large cities has fallen Dr Sweeney said Many of our present difficulties can be traced directly to bad con ditions that arc developed by our huge segregation The city of Los Angeles today is going across two states for its water supply Prac tically none of the great cities have adequately solved sewage disposal problems Nearly all great cities of the country are In debt situations which if they were private husi for insolvency nesses would call proceedings OTTUMWA Aug 11 rown former broker enced to 12 months was In jail sen and
