Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 11, 1933, Mason City, Iowa MEM OF MO I a IOW North Iowas DAILY PAPER Edited for the Home THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES AIL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XL ASSOCIATED PRESS LEAKED WIRE BEHV1CB MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 11 1933 THIS PAPEH CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 2 Plan May Be Permanent Johnson Statement on NRA Code Not Unexpected i S A S H I N G T ON Oct 11 Gen eral John sons statement that the NRA is about to enter that period wherein a per m a n e nt setup for business v i der the code plan is to be estab lished bears out the belief held from the start by many close ob servers of the ad ministration pro gram It has been the contention of this ioiip that those parts of the NRA found workable would not be dis careded at the end of the twoyear trial period prescribed by congress in passing the recovery act It was inevitable they argued that if the codification of the vari ous industries proved successful it would have become so interlocked with ordinary commercial activities at the end of the authorized period thai IE would be almost impossible to discard iL General Johnson now confirms this When asked if this long range plan had been under consideration tor long he replied Weve been building up to it ever since we started Advance Indications From the middle of August when Prof William F Ogburri resigned as a member of the consumers board of tho NRA the belief has grown that the Blue Eagle was destined for more than a temporary flight Ogburns explanation of his resigna tion indicated the trend The emergency nature of this act he said in part must give way to a longtime setup A few weeks later Dudley Gates i i eilgTieil as assistant administrator purpose of NRA economy in States which necessari ly must consist of a proper bal ance in each trade or industry be Iween the economic rights of capital properly invested the social rights of labor productively employed and the rights of the consuming public to protection against monopoly prices A Permanent Setup The next step may be that a plan ning another brain formulate and transmit to congress those parts of NRA which have proved their value Unless all signs fail the task would be completed only after the various recovery measures have been tested inthe courts and either upheld on thrown down This takes time despite the fact the period in which we now are passing has been declared one of national emergency How far the supreme court may go in either direction is something no one will predict Any permanent setup however would await that tribunals decision Additional Reports of Deaths and Damage in Honduras Floods TEGUCIGALPA Honduras Oct 11 from little interior towns brought additional reports to day of deaths and

Century of Progress MADOO NAMED IN STOCK PROBE New Form of Bootlegging Vexes Government DRIVE TO STAMP OUT ALL ILLEGAL WHEAT MILLING Out to Collect 30 Cent Process Tax Being Evaded By SAM BLEDSOE Copyright by The iVnunclalcd Press WASHINGTON Oct 11 new form of wheat millingto escape the process ing tax on the grownto such proportions that a determined drive to end it is planned by feder al authorities Collection of the 30 cents a bushel tax on wheat and enforcement of the regulations surrounding the levy are the immediate problem of the bureau of internal revenue The farm adjustment administra tion is vitally concerned however because the proceeds from the pro cessing tax are depended upon to raise funds to pay farmers who agree to reduce their acreage by 10 per cent next year Flow of Complaints As indicated by the steady flow of complaints that has come to the farm administration the chief vio lators of the law are growers whom the processing tax was designed to help The wheat farmer was given the privilege of own family use into flour tax free The charge made and repeated from virtually every wheat growing section that some farmers are having more wheat ground than they need and dispos ing of the excess tax free flour at a profit Custom millers in some sections are reported to be accepting the farmers estimates without ques tion The growers are required by internal revenue bureau regulations to make an affidavit that the cus tom ground wheat is for their own use and also that it was grown on their land Signing Affidavits Protest has been made however that in some Instances commercial truck drivers are signing affidavits and are receiving the flour for dis position The farm administration believes some of the complaints have come from enemies of the processing tax but the widespread reports have caused concern Consequently plans have been made to offer every co operation to the bureau of internal revenue in detecting violators No figures are available officials said on the extent to which wheat bootlegging has affected receipts from the processing levy Slow to Pay The receipts from the tax in 22 days in July were only S3S4000 Of ficials said however that this low figure had no particular significance since millers were slow to pay be cause of xinfamlliarity with the tax regulations The processing tax on wheat is expected to produce approximately Any substantial reduc tion in that figure would mean that the treasury would have to be drawn upon to pay for the wheat reduction campaign Cooperation among the farmers themselves is depended upon by of ficials to aid enforcement of the tax If necessary however repeal of the provisions of the act which allow the farmer to have wheat ground into flour taxfree may be asked in the next congress Flagship for Byrd Voyage Leaves Port Admiral in New York Getting Ready for Expedition BOSTON Oct 11 Ad miral Richard E Byrds flagship tho Jacob Ruppert sailed out of Boston harbor at a m
