NORTH IQWAKS NEIGHBORS MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY MARCH 17 1933 HOME EDITION THIS CONSISTS OK TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 140 Asks Farms for Jobless Senator Bankhead Calls for to Foot Bill By CHARLES T STEWART WASHINGTON March 17 CPA John H Bankhead of Alabama is sponsor of a bill pro viding to buy subsis tence farms for as many landless men with their broods as it will pay for The amount named and the p 1 a ns general principles says the senator have the administra tions approval No bonanza is offered Essen tialiy agriculture is not a business in which to make money It is a method of taking a liv ing d i r e c tly from the soil It is not an easy Senator John BanUhcad method but It is independent 1000000 Less Idle This proposal should subtract 1000000 from industrial unemploy ment Tor the farms size no inflexible rule is prescribed Close to cities where truck gardening is possible an acre or two may suffice In re moter areas from five to ten acres will be required Such patches are to be had at Irom 540 to each Bach homesteader will need a house probably largely of his own building He will need a horse or mule a harness a plow a few pigs and chickens a grubstake to last him until his first harvest Repayment to the government will be too gradual to burden him Taxes are waived until his debt is canceled Allotment of farms will be the l visera Preference will be given naturally to candidates with farm experience Still city bred applicants will not be excluded i Cause iVo Competition There will be no competition with already established agricul ture The land it ia proposed to ac quire is now under cultivation I simply will be bought from owners who at present are overproducing wheat or corn or cotton and turnec over to 1000000 farm families which will eat practically all that they produce Indeed the older farmers will benefit by disposing at a fair price of a few surplus acres of land each and by cre ation of a stiff demand for their horses mules swine and poultry to stock the newcomers The return of 1000000 families to the land may be insufficient to absorb our whole industrial excess However as payments begin to come in from them a revolving fund will be established with which more and yet more wouldbe settlers can be provided population again is economically balanced FARM GROUPS APPEAL FOR SPEED 1000 North Iowa Teachers at Convention HEALTH Minnesota
