on Omnibus Banking Measure ASHINGTON May 14 Widely divergent viewpoints mark the opinions o f Iowas represent atives of the ad ministra lions omnibus banking bill on which theysplit almost evenly when the house sent the measure over to the senate Their views ranged from the enthusiastic in dorsement of Represent a ti v e Hubert Utter back Des Moines democrat who hailed the measure as removing domination ofthe New York federal reserve bank over the nations bank ing system to the defiant opposition of Representative Lloyd Thurston Osceola republican who foresaw a shift from regional control of bank ing to national political control The delegation split 5 to 4 for the bill Representative Edward C Eicher democrat joining the three republicans in opposing the meas ure Eicher said he feared the effect of the section extending powers of the federal reserve board would be the freezing of the federal reserve act He also said he feared the meas ure was unconstitutional because of its broad delegation of powers to the federal reserve board to determine credit policies of the nation without mandatory and specific directions of the Goldsborough amendment Rejected by House This amendment which was re jected by the house although sup ported by most of the Iowa delega formerly had This isnt political tion would have required the federal reserve board to conduct its opera tions so as to

frost level GOVERNOR WILL OUST GRAFTERS 3000 Farmers Shout Praise of AAA DEAN TALKS TO MASS MEETING AT Says Present Corn and Hog Prices Must Be Maintained WASHINGTON May 14 Three thousand farmers from the south and the west jammed Con stitution hall today shouted praise of the AAA and looked forward to hearing an address in the after noon by President Roosevelt Yelling wildly the farmers stood and cheered for several minutes while their convention chairman W H Robertson of Loachapoka asserted This is probably the first time in history when a group has visited this city merely for the sake of thanking a great president and his administration for their helpful cess Wallace on Platform On the platform with him was Secretary Wallace who was greet ed with three minutes of cheering when he appeared Wallace smiled and was obviously pleased Earl Dean Mason City Iowa farmer representing the cornhog territory told the farmers mass meeting here today that cornhog tamers want to keep the agri cultural program Tox the first timfe in the history Calls AAA Success United States government has tact led the problem of adjusting agri cultural production to theprob1 able demand for agricultural prod ucts so that a reasonable pries level can be maintained for agri culture Adjusted to Demand Industry has always adjusted production to demand and the gov ernment has cooperated by estab lishing a tariff sothat prices might be maintained at a reasonable level Since corn and hog prices have assumed almost normal levels we want them maintained at somewhere near normal levels and the violent fluctuations which in hogs have ranged from 2 to 20 a hundred and corn from 10 cents to a bushel eliminated Dean said farmers wanted a reas onable price for a normal amount of corn and hogs and other com modities produced on midwestera farms with the government mak ing it possible to store a normal surplus to guard against shortages which might result in years of short crops For Corn Belt I am speaking Dean said for a group of cornhog contract sign ers from the corn belt who have come here to Washington to convey to the president to Mr Wallace and to members of congress our in dorsement of the cornhog program and the agricultural adjustment act The members of our delegation left the corn belt and came to Washington at a time when every middlewestern farmer desires most to be home corn planting time because we feel that the AAA pro gram should be continued Is Widely Indorsed Dean said the present farm pro gram is more widely indorsed than any agricultural program ever veloped He said under its opera tions Iowa farmers had seen their prices rise from 10 or 15 cents a bushel to more than 80 cents while the corn stayed in storage on the Iowa farms ana in the hands of the Iowa farmer and not in the hands of speculators in the terminal markets who if they had possession of the corn would probably be sell ing it back to farmers in the drought area at a much higher price Dean credited the AAA with be ing a most important factor with restoring farm prices but said any thinking farmer realizes an other bumper crop would send prices downward unless there is an adjustment program to act as a balance wheel Benefit to Nation We ask the members of con gress the Iowa farmer said not to allow anything to be done which would interfere with the operation of this program which can be of lasting benefit not only to the farmer but also to the nation as a whole The farmer after all is not only a producer of prime importance Turn o pnce 2 column B EAKL M DEAN Loses Suit for Breach of Promise LONDON May 14 Miss Angela Joyce the Miss England of 1930 today lost her breach of promise suit against Lord Revel stoke wealthy young banker A jury in the Old Bailey which included three women required only half an hour to reach a verdict for the defendant Costs of the action were assessed against Miss Joyce i beauty who kinfe wfiefe callejISto her testified as Rupert Baring before his fathers death proposed to her several times while he was in school at Cam bridge Once he popped the ques tion in her bedroom she asserted Flatly Denies Claim This Revelstoke flatly denied tell ing the court the question of mar riage only came up between them when Miss Joyce herself raised it He told her he was not interested he testified In closing the young peers at torney gave the

her assertion that he had written her letters after the Cambridge period The attorney told the court the action not merely is a cruel case but the essence of Its cruelty is that it is false Brought for Money This case was brought for money and where that is done a case can be bought off he de clared It is to Revelstokes honor that he has contested the matter to the last The youthful defendants counsel commended him for confessing to a boyish infatuation for the come ly actress and enduring the humili ation of having his letters to her read in open court Justice Swift in charging the jury said A man doesnt promise to mar ry a woman by saying Youre the sweetest girl Ive ever met To win her case he said Miss Joyce had to prove without ques tion that Revelstoke had contracted to marry her
