Action on New Speaker to Start Next Month JOHN N By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON Aug 27 Democratic politicians look for no definite move toward the choice of a speaker of I the house to suc ceed the Jate Henry T Rainey for some weeks yet Therell be a lot of talk countless claims and counter claims almost daily but little one can actually put a finger on as evidence on the way the wind is blowing During the latter part of Septem ber presumably when President Roosevelt returns to Washington from the summer white house at Hyde Park administration leaders in congress are expected in the cap ital for a series of conferences Vice President Garner has been invited to be present The future course of the new deal including important decisions about the ad ministrations legislative program in the next congress is expected to be charted at the time A Major Problem The death of Rainey places the question of his successor in the first rank of major problems now facing the administration The safe guarding of important new deal legislation in the coming congress is at stake That the white house will play a handsoff policy in the choosing of the next speaker insofar as possi ble is taken for granted now But that a situation could arise where it would be necessary for Mr Roose velt to show his hand is also ad The cry of sectionalism or the outh to in the saddle such as was Laised time

was elected speaker there were 313 democrats in the house They were located geograph ically as follows West 54 north 116 south 93 It is agreed generally that what losses the democrats suffer in the coming general elections will be to the north and west sections of the country That being true the south and border states may have more than a majority in the next con e question then would seem to beIf the cry of sectionalism is raised will the southern and border states in the interest of keepiag harmony within the party be will tag to step aside or will they use their majority to elect one of their own regardless Iowa Leads Nation in Livestock Value REVEAL DETAILS OF NRA FIGHT Davis Envisions Planned Production Program TELLS FARMERS THAT THEY WILL HAVE FINAL SAY Believes Present Plan Should Be Carried Through 1935 DBS MOINES Aug 27 Chester C Davis administrator of the AAA envisioned a future pro gram of cooperatively planned pro duction to supply markets at home and abroad and return a fair price to farmers in an address today at the Iowa state fair Davis address was the highlight of the Farm Bureau federation program which originally had call ed for the appearance of Rexford Guy Tugwell assistant secretary of agriculture If the farmers desire it Davis said the future program will be one of cooperatively planned pro duction Curried Through 1935 I believe that the present com modity programs should be carried on through 1935 with certain modi fications to bring a closer coordina tion between them with emphasis on restoration of grass and forage and soi improving crops on a por tion of the acreage which in the past has been devoted to cash crops for which there is no market Thus did Davis make known that the administration has no intention of

No agricultural program will be adopted or long continued unless it is a farmers program understood by them and carried forward by them Will Consalt Farmers The final word he told his fanner listeners on agricultural policy when it is spoken will be said by you Davis said the nation was now passing out of the emergency phase of agricultural adjustment Excessive supplies will be wiped out in the case of many commodi ties by the end of the current year and the adjustment should be com pleted before conclusion of the 1935 program The future problem con fronting the farmers of America therefore will not be one of con1 tinual reduction but of cooperation in adjustment of productive effort to supply the current market at home and abroad at a fair price to the farmer Part of Price Due Processing taxes on hogs which now total S225 a hundredweight provide an income which should be looked on as part of the price due fanners from consumers expendi tures Davis said He compared hog
