Disliked Shipping Interests Abroad Look With Disfavor By HERBERT PLUMMER ASHINGTON Dec 28 though no formal protest has been registered with the state depart ment there are ample indications that foreign shipping interests look with any thing but favor on the proposed N R A code for the American shipping indus try The proposed code is in the conference stage D i f f e rences of Japinion

Maritime conference representing more ship owners than any other in fo ternational organization is particu larly agitated Modifications Asked The organization has issued a spe cial circular against the code in the view is taken that the situation presents a grave clanger to international shipping interests The argument is advanced that owners of liners and tramps alike should insist that no country at tempt to control other than its own shipping except by international opinion The private opinion is expressed at NRA headquarters that the final draft of the code cither will not contain section 3 or else it will be COLD SHOWS SICNS OF BREAKING House to Vote on County Farm Board Measure BILL IS PLACED UPON CALENDAR CONTEST BITTER Pass Act to Pave Way for Loan to State From RFC STORY

the code to be fair it is pointed out in the same circular It is not con ceivable that there will be room within the proposed code for non American tramp owners On the contrary there is every

COOPERATED IN LAST 12 MONTHS ONeal Looks on 1933 as Significant to Agriculture EDITORS NOTE The year 1933 being as momentous as it was what did it mean for agri culture Xiio Associated Press herewith presents the answer us viewed in an article written for it by one of the most wide ly known farm By KDWAKD A ONEAL President American Farm Bureau Federation WASHINGTON Dec 28 Unity of action among farm organ izations has been demonstrated in the past year as being possible Farm organizations ordinarily have worked congenially together but in the last 12 months they have work ed in a particularly close formation The beginning of u new era in regard to control of surpluses al though discussed several years prior to 1933 got into full action during that year I refer to the control surpluses by limitingproduction rather than trying to control them alter they are produced World Markets Vanished Ten years ago we did not need to limit production because then we had world markets Nineteen hun brQughtjUS with the fact that our world markets for farm products had largely vanished and that farm ers if properly rewarded should control their production Nineteen hundred and thirtythree was particular significant to agri culture in that it confirmed our fed eral policy of taxation based on ability to pay despite the fact that the federal government in its ef forts to relieve unemployment needed vast funds The income method of taxation has been continued through this troublesome period instead of re sortingto other forms of taxes which ire based mostly on neces sity to consume Honest Dollar Near In my opinion along with the great tax victory just spoken of stands the monetary policies now being put Into effect throughout the year 1933 The revaluation of the dollar recognition of silver and the general expansion of credit through out the nation by governmental activities constitute an epoch in the fiscal policies of our nation The honest dollar which the American Farm Bureau federation for years lias advocated Js now a near reality Nineteen hundred rind thirty three marked a definite beginning of a planned agricultural program for agriculture in which control of production retirement of marginal lands from production proper mar keting of farm crops support of agricultural educational agencies and similar activities are given more recognition than ever hereto fore they had been given Knters New Era We are barely at the beginning of this erahowever and much larger action will be needed than we have been able to start in 1933 The year just closing shows to my mind that the administration at Washington is more farm minded than former ones have been and with the policies initiated in tho post year and carried forward as they arc now planned we can look back to 1933 a few years from now and realize that agriculture so far as federal recognition is concerned entered a new era with a new hope nnd confidence in the administra tion of President Roosevelt The beginning of this hope and confidence is evident in the in creases in prices on farm products which have begun an upward swing taking the country as a whole Fowler Well Known

Is First Need PHILADELPHIA Dec 28 UP United States cannot waste its way back Into pfospdrity The odore Roosevelt today told the Man ufacturers and Bankers club There is only one way a country can exist permanently with happi ness the former governor general of the Phillippines said and that ia by having a balanced budget a good credit and a sound currency Colonel Roosevelt called for a re turn to the ideas of economy that were Hummed up in the phrase we should not spend more than we re ceive These ideas he said wore taught to American citizens as children Silk Shirt Days Over What applied in family life ap plies in national life he said A nation must not and in the long run cannot spend more than it collects from its people There is one way and one way only in which a budget can be permanently and properly balanced and that is by this princi ple The silk shirt days are over He said that the nation must re turn to a simpler scale of living both governmental and private that it must adjust itself lo changed con ditions There is no way he said by which a program calling for the bal ancing of the budget the reduction of taxes and the maintenance of expense can be followed in the light of present rigorous economic condi tions One Way to Balance There is but one way to balance the budget at this time Col Roose velt said and that is to cut govern mental expenses to the bone and to increase taxes where possible All other moves are sophistry The national administration is separating its expenses into two classifications Colonel Roosevelt said those of general or ordinary expenses and emergency or nonre curring expenses He attacked this classification as the one used by the various European governments when they were tottering on til edge of the abyss and wished to con ceal their true condition He contended that by this method expenses previously included in the budget find their way around and appear in the national debt He said the national debt of the United States has risen from 000 b when the sums now al Tum In 1aite ft Column I RFC Repeats Price of for Gold for 8th Time in Row WASHINGTON Dec 28 RFC again offered today an ounce for newly mined domestic

nors join hands again Will they again go to Washington and demand helpful legislation for their states It they do will they ask for new measures or reiterate their requests for old ones which have been turned down What the middleweslcm gover nors should do said Gov Clyde L Herring of Iowa when I asked him these questions is to stand back of the administration and help along the measures that have already bcon passed We dont need gover nors conferences to do that We were sitting iu the governors office in the state house in Des MMnes A high ceilinged long win dowed room too heavily the old time way of state for beauty but possessing a good deal of dignity Wont Illicit President Arc we going to have a confer ence The governor smiled rather tirily 1 dont know 1 read in the paper we were I think Governor Olson would like one and would like to have it here But if we do meet again Ill say as I did at our earlier conference that it must be clearly understood that the meeting Isnt called for the purpose bucking the administration Our ships in stormy waters and it is time for us all to be good sailors Ho spoke of the ship of state in the siune calm voice In which he later discussed the price hogs There is nothing dramatic about Governor Herring He la friendly informal matter of fact A portrait of him would require three tones White for hair and eyebrows pale flesh tint forface nnd high fore head neat brown for suit and tie You would need besides a bit of pale blue for the eyes behind the rimless glasses Of course though he went on its easier to aay what we should do than what we will do I doubt if we cnn bring ourselves to agree in furthering all of any one program Take the governor of Illinois for in stance and the governor of North problems are so dif ferent and the two men are so en tirely different in their dont believe they could ever unite any course of action regjjlng Corn I asked Governor Herring if he and the other governors would again agk for coat of production for the farmers No he replied as a matter of fact we never did ask for it What we asked for was a pegged price on corn of 65 cents We knew that the cost of production was too high for us to get now but we hoped that 65 cents would be a parity price that is that it would put farm products on a level with other commodities Our idea was of course that in time this price could be raised
