FIVE CENTS A COPT ASSOCIATED PKBSS LEASED WJKB MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY OCTOBER 26 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 13 ish Clamor Will Be Raised Effort in House to Liberalize Rules Doomed By HERBERT PLUMMKR ASH1NGTON Oct 26 clamor for liber alization of the rules of the house in the next congress will be raised but no one here expects it will amount to anything It will come from many of the democrats who in the last congress were prevented from exercising little more than voting member ship Republicans will support such a move because they will be in the minority They wont get very far how er it is believed because the iaders themselves will be against Probably not one of the 10 or fire candidates for speaker would ijmmit himself in advance on the jiibject even if it meant votes for It is generally conceded that the Democrats will retain if not in their overwhelming majority in the seventyfourth congress That will make it necessary for strict j and rigid organization in the house 5 if the administrations legislative program is to be enacted Rule Embarrassing Experience has shown that an unbridled house is capable of wreck ing the most carefully laid plans of the administration In the last session there were numerous in stances when the leaders were X forced to clamp downwith the greatest severity to insure the safe ty of the administrations program The socalled discharge ch permits 145 of the 435 mem the houses to force a vote I any the leaders The Id other measures were forced to vote by means of this rule Plans were afoot even before the close of the last session to kill this rule and make it necessary for a majority of the house to force a vote on legislation Whatever the leadership setup in the coming congress may be it is v regarded as certain that the rule will be amended and tie gag ap 7 plied as frequently as in the past V Senate Is Different The senate leadership has no situation with which to contend as the house The relatively smaller membership and greater prestige of senators make it unnecessary for the leaders to resort to gagging tactics Only to extreme cases is the rule of cloture invoked A senator has more avenues upon which to approach his constituents than has a member of the house He can talk to his hearts content any time he desires and air his views on anything he pleases at any length The average member of the house unless he be in the circle of leaders has little opportunity to do more than cast his vote He may secure time to make a speech on a dull day but even these receive scant publicity Then too a senator if duly elected serves for six years and is able to concentrate on other thin than reelection A member of the house comes up every two years for reelection and must of neces sity keep himself as faras possible before his constitutents ND AAA VOTE WILL BE SOON Florida Lynching Mob Storms Jail in Alabama LETS FATHER OF Board of Control on Tour of Inspection DES MOINES

CornHog Contracts to Be Sent to Farmers in Next Two Weeks By STEPHEN McDONOUGH InpjrlKlit 1931 by The Asiorlnlfd Press WASHINGTON Oct 26 The AAA is expected to seek only half as large a cut in next years corn acreage as it did this year The farm administration a ranged today to submit next years contract to farmers within two weeks The compact it was learned will require signers to cut corn plantings 10 to 15 per cent below the 193233 base acreage of 105 500000 This compared with the 2030 per cent cut asked this year Cut to Be Smaller The cut in hogs is expected to be between 5 and 10 per cent com pared to this years 20 to 25 Most attention is paid to corn curtail ment Hog numbers are already low and officials believe they can be overned by feed control Should an overwhelming major ity of farmers sign next years corn contracts and some officials predict they will expectations are that acreage willbe reduced to between 90000000 and 94000000 Produc tion assumingan average yield of about 25 bushels an acre would be between 2250000000 and 2350 000000 bushels compared with the average of 2600000000 Less Than Average Either of these figures would be less than the average yearly con sumption of 2493000000 bushels aut officials say there will be about 15000000 fewer hogs and 10000 000 fewer cattle at the beginning of next year thus requiring less corn They also declare production y farmers who do not sign con iracts will probably be stimulated by higher prices for corn and hogs next summer The 10 to 15 per cent reduction is felt to be a proper balancing point to compensate for farmers who expand production This years contract signers reduced acreage an average of 22 per cent and the otal cut for the country was about 12 per cent Sum Up Situation Summing up the situation offi cials said feed requirements hence need for feed production during the coming year will be under the average of past year for the rea son that livestock numbers will be small Thus the corn crop in 1935 can ie 10 to 15 per cent Smaller than the average and still supply ade quately the hog crop and other uses or corn Benefit will be paid for 1935 on practically the basis as this yeqr The totnl is expected to be about the sam WALLACETHINKS 1936 PLAN NOT CLEAR TO ALL Praises Herring Relief Board for Efforts on Seed Corn DES MOINES Oct 26 question of a onecontract crop re duction program for
