mind It has a lot to do with all the pull ing and hauling of this political campaign For Section 2c of Title I says that two years from that day and hour or sooner if the president shall declare that the emergen cy has ended Title I and any agency created under it shall cease to exist Away would go NRA lock stock and barrel Away would go too many AAA processing tax functions as now exercised statutory deadline is now less than a year away When the elections that shape the seventy fourth congress the congress that will formulate national policy on abandonment of all or any part of the industrial recovery experiment are over it will be only seven months away And that is only one of the big vital things at issue amid the con fusion and babble of political tongues as the contest over 435 house seats and 34 senate votes in that seventyfourth congress is waged No Turning Back It could happen that President Roosevelt proclaimed the end of the emergency before June 16 1935 That he will no informed observer believes His last word was that there would be no turning back to the old law of the tooth and the claw Despite a ferment of labor unrest taxing every agency of adjustment

recovery investment The Agricultural Side On the agricultural side two vast accumulated surpluses that had hung with leaden weight for years over national and world markets are virtually gone King Cotton by so cial cooperation aided by the drought is momentously under con trol Due to the drought for the first time in history Uncle Sam is stepping out of the world wheat market He needs all he has Great as the cost of the drought vast as the human suffering it en tailed and the expenditures required to relieve it nature has made her own ruthless readjustment of that phase of the depression of too much a new and yet unplumbed phenomenon to mankind Many may feel that the depres sion crisis will be or could be over by a m on June 16 1935 but for new deal reform ideas Yet in essence this election merely is a curtainraiser for what is to follow 1936 and perhaps for a direct public answer to the question Is the new deal a mere depression poultice void when used or a def inite change in Americaneconomic and social doctrines FORECAST IOWA Generally fair not so cool Thursday night Friday partly cloudy unsettled in northeast portion warmer in extreme east portion MINNESOTA Unsettled
