breth ren acted during the special ses sion of congress concluded Aside from a few unpleasant moments their leadership has had pretty notwithstanding the fact that the lash was applied with force at times To a man who has served 1 consecutive terms in the house whose service dates hack to March 4 1907 the maner in which the house conducted itself during the three most crucial months perhaps in the history of the country ap pears astounding Adolph Sabath of the fifth Illi nois district has had opportunity to make comparisons An Inside View Sabath says that he has never seen anything to compare with the performance of the house during the special session To use his own words When it is considered that ap proximately onethird of the house is composed of new members many of them quite young men with set views and a determination to force through legislation that they have advocated it is remarkable how many of them submerged their hon est convictions and aspirations and joined hands and manfully aided in enacting speedily the important leg ofthis special session of Joy are being IOWA SLAYER COMMITS SUICIDE Wallace Claims Next 12 Years Will Be Brighter SAYS HOG CORN

and if the farmers of the country wish it vttoris are TJelrighandedaround free ly the very interesting question of whats going to happen in January when the regular session of the sev entythird congress is convened comes to the fore The Driving Force One must not lose sight of the fact that the peace and harmony which prevailed in the house durirj the special session rested on an ex traordinary foundation Chickens may be coming home to roost in January Then too by the time January rolls around Postmaster General Farley will have passed a lot of pie over his patronage haps all t

Difficult Problem Wallace held that devising pro grams under the act for hogs corn and dairy products provide some of the most difficult problems of ad ministration The dilemma of the cornhog producers and quite as pronounced as that of the wheat growers orthe cotton grow ers but the task of developing sat isfactory plans is infinitely more complex he said However that is no reason why Satismactory plans can not be developed providing the producers themselves want them de veloped and will take their proper initiative in developing and then executing them No Cleorcut Plan Unfortunately the corn belt or ganizations have not brought to us a clearcut plan for utilizing the centralizing forces of the act in the same way as the wheat and cotton people I hope you will be alert to the fact that the farm act offers the oportunity it is up to farmers ot make use of it Wallace said the ultimate prob lem in cornhog production is the surplus of about 20000000 acres of corn land This surplus came about he said because the num ber of horses andmules in the na tion is about 11000000 fewer than 20 years ago These animals con sumed the products of 15000000 acres of corn land and an addition al 20000000 acres of hay and oats land Corn Land Replaced The 15000000 acres of com land has been replaced by gasoline he said another 5000000 or 10000 000 of corn land has been lost be cause modem science has enabled us to feed hogs more economically We produce 100 pounds of pork with much less corn than we used to We have also lost corn consump tion because human beings cat less corn Thus far we are permitted to know one plan Various suggestions have come to use from the corn belt One suggestion embodying the opin ion of a wide circle of farmers has been to the effect that no reduction should be made on the 1933 corn acreage but that an immediate start should be made on reducing pork tonnage and that 15 to 20 per cent of the 1934 corn land should be leased the leasing operation to be started early this fall Considered Together The difficulty of any plan for reducing pork production of course is that neither corn nor hogs can be considered separately If we tried to reduce the tonnage of hogs without cutting corn acreage we would have n terrific job on our hands Some men raise hogs but not corn others raise corn but not hogs Perhaps the solution will rest in dealing more or less temporarily with pork tonnage and more per manently with corn acreage For it is corn production in the long run that determines the output of pork At the same time It might be ne cessary to keep some sort of check on the number of sows kept by pro ducers who wish to cooperate It has been suggested that we might learn to reduce pork tonnage by paying n bonus for light hogs and a penalty for hcaviea Presumably a marketing agreement between the producers the packers to Fate 2 Column Council at Waterloo Urges Road Projects to State Commission WATERLOO June 23 struction of an
