individual farmer give up selfish motives and work for good of the community at i large Urges Store Fun Mr Glover said there were al vways penalties connected with pro gresa but few farmers want to go back to old times The more put 5 into project or farm the more tak 7 en out according to Mr Glover who urged the farmer to get more fun out of his work If you dont get fun out of work you are not going to get much fun out of life said Mr Glover Put 1 sweat into your farm industry and life and you will get something worthwhile in return The advent of machinery has created more work above ourselves There is work enough if we use all our machines It is not a problem of production today but one of distribution I believe in cooperation because it makes the farmer master of his business We can do for ourselves and direct our own destinies I want to see the man on the land doing his own dictation and cooperating with his neighbor We have taken the drudgery out of farming but we shouldnt be satisfied until every farm home is equipped with modern Statistics show that women were back in if all the the kitchen raising babies like they were years ago there would not be enough men to fill the jobs today Problem of Distributor We have taken the drudgery out of work We have been complaining too much and not looked up and conveniences Calls for Efficiency Mr Glover also urged the farm ers to get their stock up to the standards of modern cows rather than the standards of the cows of oxcart days He said the farmer had little chance of catching up with production and urged efficiency to the greatest degree He urged farm ers to get rid of the cows that were not paying for themselves as well as the diseased stock and also struck at the barriers put up to stop the free flow of interstate commerce Any stopping of the free flow of commerce between the states means a young Europe said Mr Glover and a young Europe will mean war I aio opposed to laws for our own selfish protection I want to see Iowa Minnesota and Wiscon sin exchange products For Quality Milk Mr Glover also urged the feeding and raising of less grain and more use of pasture and silage and hay for quality milk He urged the fanners to forget about the bogey of surplus and keep their barns well stocked for the lean years You will have to give up some of your independence as the penalty of progress for the good of the community But stay by your co operation and when questions arise go to the proper authorities for your information George Godfrey Speaks George Godfrey assistant to the president in agriculture Iowa State college Ames spoke on the Foun dations of Cooperation and urged regulation of greed in farming as well as greed in business and prop erty The first thing needed in any form of cooperation is an apprecia tion of the other fellows rights The finest coroperator in the world is the individualistic man It is natural to be selfish but it takes individual strength to overcome selfishness Lay aside selfish ambi tions and put the group first Dr M Mortensen head of the dairy industry of Iowa State college awarded the prizes to the 10 win ning buttermakers and Prof A

ject was finally awarded to the Larson Construction company plain tiff in the above mentioned cause of action when it refused to acceed to your unfair disreputable and un scrupulous conspiracy Charges Dishonest Dealing 5 If you deny the above and foregoing accusations Mr Lytle will you please explain through the columns of the press which you are so fond of using the cause of action was filed by the Larson Construction company afore said against yourself and you sent or transmitted In person or by agent to the city of Des Moines the sum of 5300000 in currency for the use and benefit of the Larson Construction company to finance their program The charge of dishonest dealing came in an additional question by the assistant states attorney in which Maley asked Lytle Whether or not through your superintendent and general man ager Mr Parrott you were next to the lowest bidder in the contract awarded by the city of Cedar Rap ids on their sewage disposal plant in November 1933 Claims

eraJly cloudy today IAN TAKING TOO ELL ON TAXATION Continued From Tege J dent Roosevelt himself to take this view declaring himself more than wiling anxious to sacrifice his whole political future in behalf of a policy to which undoubtedly he feels sure the administration is not genuinely a policy he has advocated and to which the ad ministration now has inadvertentlv committed itself Leaders on Hot Spot Thus administration leaders on Capitol Hill are placed on a fright fully hot spot Statesmen like Senator Joseph T Robinson democratic manager in the upper congressional chamber and Speaker Joseph W Byrns of the house of representatives are in no position to express themselves in opposition to a program their own party generalissimo in the white house has declared for in a formal message to the lawmakers Yet in expressing their adhesion to it they appear to be aligning themselves a with the Kingffsh and Father they are extreme conservatives Parenthetically wealthsharing is a popular idea at least but Speaker Byrns who is sure of reelection in his Tennessee district anyway doesnt care Senator Rob inson however who will come up for reelection next year in Arkan sas and presumably will have a tight squeak if he wins at all must mind his ps and qs Given Him Disease Roughly The idea of Senator Huey P Long and the progressives generally is to divide our raise as much revenue as possible for the government but to divide wealth regardless of revenue The presidential plan is to raise revenue incidentally dividing wealth primarily the thought is to raise revenue The two philosophies essentiallv are different The question is Hasnt President Roosevelt trying to immunize the patient against the share the wealth microbe with his revenueraising vaccine inoculated his subject with the honesttogood ness disease Lytle that the low bid was made by a certain contracting firm in Des Moines for the approximate sum of 5220000 Maley said and that your concern was the next bidder at 262000 that and general manager Mr Parrott you offered the Dea Moines company the sum of 510000 to withdraw their bid so that as next highest bidder you might be awarded the contract and that through your su perintendent and general manager you atetmpted to induce the lowest bidder to withdraw and to offer as an explanation for his withdrawal that he or they had made a mistake or error in estimating the specifica tions on their contract or bid Is it or is it not the truth that if you had been successful in this particular piece of dishonest dealing that you would have still netted un just profits amounting to some 300 over and above 10000 which he representatives of your company offered as a bribe all in addition to the normal contracting profit Pleads for Information Maley concluded his letter with the plea Will you be so kind in the interests of public welfare and private conscienceto furnish the in formation above requested Returning to the subject of the appointment of the special prosecu tors Maley told the Sioux City lan Personally J am convinced that you must be actuated by personal and selfish political and business motives in continuing your cam paign of writing open leters for the jurpose of getting state wide pub icity for your own personal views or to satisfy your own personal whims Says He Changed Parties All who know you know that In he short span of a normal life you have amassed a fortune which rates you as one of Iowas most wealthy men the assistant attorney gen eral said During the time that you accumulated most of your fortune vantage of outstanding legal tal ent Has Reference to Harner I have particular reference to H M Havner former attorney gen eral of the state of Iowa whom you and Mr Marshall of Cedar Rapids Verne Marshall editor of the Cedar Rapids Gazette have agreed to pay after his services in Wood bury county are terminated the assistant public prosecutor said Maley called Lytles attention to article 3 section one of the con stitution dividing the state govern ment into three branches legisla tive executive and judicial and specifying no person charged with the exercise of powers properly be longing to one of these departments shall exercise any function apper taining to either of the others ex cept in cases hereinafter expressly directed or permitted Praises County Attorney You make reference to the county attorney of Sioux City a young man whom I happen to know personally Maley wrote He is honest energetic and sincere So far as I know there are competent lawyers in Woodbury county ready willing and able to assist the countj attorney as special assistants with out going to the extra expense 01 employing outside legal counsel and outside private investigators Apparently your mode of self promotion is to discredit and casti gate all members of the party in power which you have so recently joined Maley added It occurs to me Mr Lytle that your unsolicitec advent into the democratic party will never serve to place you in the senate of the United States espe cially in view of the fact that only recently you failed in an attempt to be elected to the school board of your own city GRAND JURY AND LAWYERS CONFER Continued From rage 1 county officials and two Rolfe res taurant owners from whom state agents are reported to have seized some slot machines Ready to Testify I Several

better You were a member of the Iowa senate as a republican In 1832 before you changed your party affiliations you announced yourself as a candidate for the of fice of United States senator on the democratic ticket Now in the eventide of life with a fortune safely tucked away you seek to have the taxpayers of Iowa whom you have exploited honor you with Such a position of trust as that of a United States senator Scores Lytles Request The request for the supreme court recommendation for the special prosecutors was Maley declared an attempt to put that body into a political contest when you knew if you knew anything at all that it was nonpolitical entirely Or did you think that by so do ing you might by a sense of full some flattery hope to influence that honorable and August body from pronouncing by judicial opin ion its verdict upon the unscrup ulous dishonest paving contracts executed in Sioux City Iowa wherein the city of Sioux City sued the Western Asphalt Paving com pany and others and recovered judgment said causes of action now being in the process of appeal be fore the supreme court of this state Maley told Lytle the contractor who has been urging a thorough in
