providing1 no compensation for the loss of their investments It is not the entrance of farm ers in the handling of farm products that causes the protests but it is the means employed by President Hoover and the unfair unwarranted methods used to displace a Hystem that has proved its value to the country After reading previously pub lished statement of Aaron Apiro cooperative leader and of Alexan der Legge federal farm board head Hr Quinn said of the two men Try to Raise Level Recognizing the efficiency of tho present system they tried to raise the basic level by price fixing hoarding purchasing grain concerna to do their own distributing and finally asked reduced acreage They undertook experiments that were doomed to failure And now Mr Legge has thrown up his hands and told farmers he cannot help them unless they cut down production If the grain trade is efficient and the basic level cannot be raised the agriculturalmarketing act sta bilization corporation and other set ups are obviously oC no use except to project the government into the domain of private business If the act is not sovietism it is at least its first cousin 30 ARRESTED IN CAPONE SNARE Raid by Chicago
