Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 30, 1934, Mason City, Iowa MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE JULY 30 1934 THREE HAS REPLY FOR CRITICS OF AAA Wallace Says Old Dealers Want to See Surpluses Pile Up Again RUSTON La July 30 ting back at republicans who attack the AAA program Secretary Wal lace said today that the battle cry of the old dealers is pile up the surpluses again The agricultural secretary said in a speech that the republican party has always been short on states manship and has even seduced hardheaded farmers into believing that since the drought has disposed of the surpluses the agricultural ad justment effort should be aban doned File Up Surpluses The old dealers because they never had any real sympathy with the farmers anyway would doubt less like to see the farmers in the United States Harvesting their full 60000000 acres of wheat 105000 000 acres of corn 41000000 acres of cotton and maintain the crop land acreage in the United States at the 370000000 acre total of re cent years he said The battle cry of the old dealers therefore seems to be pile up the surpluses again but hold the tariff at a point which will make it im possible to dispose of the surplus on the world market Will Make Changes The drought will make changes in the 1935 farm adjustment program he added We have always figured that adjustments would be needed year by is the reason we called it an adjustment act Regardless of changes which may be made he declared definitely there will be no abandonment of the prin cipal of governmental assistance to farmers in establishing the neces sary balance between supply and demand and giving just compen sation for their cooperation BALLOON CRASH PROBE TO GO ON Continued From POKC D 60000 feet considerably short of the stratosphere record but they were not even sure of this Up 57000 Feet The last time I glanced at the instrument it showed we were at an altitude of 57000 feet Stevens said We were climbing rapidly at the time but in a few minutes we noticed the rip and agreed that we must come down All members of the crew were busy every second at the task of bringing the balloon to earth More appeared in the bag and not nntil the Explorer had dropped to 20000 feet above sea level was it possible for the men to open tfce porthole release the spectograph which was tied to the outside of the gondola and then prepare to jump with their parachutes Things were happening fast and little attention was paid to the valuable instru ments Sense of a Goose Stevens who tied parachutes to a couple of empty oxygen bottles and heaved them out of the port hole commented If I had had the sense of a goose I could just as easily have tied parachutes to some of the films and records and saved them instead of the bottles National Geographic society of ficials who with the U S army air corps sponsored the flight said the balloon cost about 560000 The pre cious instruments carried by it were valued in the hundreds of thousands pf dollars but no accurate estimate was available as more than 20 sci entific organizations supplied them Half Million Dollars Some army officers termed the 300 mile flight which started near Rapid City S Dak a half million dollar venture but no authority for the estimate of the cost wag avail able here The spectograph today was en route by express to the University of Rochester Examination of it there will reveal whether new to science resulted from the worlds most pretentious venture into the stratosphere Fabric Too Light Discussing the cause of the rip in the bag Captain Anderson ad vanced the theory that the fabric used below the diaphragm was too light He said that instead of two ounce material three or four ounce fabric should havebeen used Cap tain Stevens had a different opin ion He believed the fabric strong enough but that local strains on the peculiarly shaped bag and the meth od by which it was unfolded prob ahly were responsible for the rips which caused the airmen to seek a landing before they were able to reach the bags maximum altitude Rehorst Formerly of New Hampton Is Dead NEW HAMPTON July eral services were held Saturday in Riverside Cal for John Rehorst who died from a
