the agricultural ad justment admin i s t r a t i o n the y outhfulappear ing lowan is dis cussing it more and more fre quently and plac ing more and more emphasis upon it as the time draws near for a vote in congress on the proposed amend ments to the AAA act Attention during preliminary dis cussion of the socalled clarifying amendments was focussed on the controversial licensing features but the bill also contains provisions which would permit Wallace to carry out the evernormal granary idea It would permit payment of benefits for crop adjustment pro grams in kind as well as in cash Would Prevent U S Losses In other words if the surplus of corn believed desirable to assure adequate feed supplies in the na tion as protection against a drought such as occurred last year should be

his duty to enforce liquor and gambling laws as to whether you should act Lytle further criticized the gov ernor for what he said was lack of intestinal fortitude The governors announcement of his denial of the request followed a conference with Sheriff Tice here today Governor Herring said there had never been any question about en forcement of laws under the Wood bury county sheriffs office
