A plan which he believes would
enable industry to absorb 4,000,-
000 more workers in two years,
and take practically all the unem-
played off the relief rolls was
broached by Ernest Draper, as-
sistant secretary of commerce in
addressing an industrial relations
conference. He proposed that na-
tional business associations, work-
ing through State and local as-
sociations and chambers of com-
merce, find work for those who
so far have not been able to
Business and industry already
have absorbed the vast majority
of unemployed who are efficient,
except for the small number who
are temporarily out of work, and
this type of unemployment will
exist even in boom times. On
the other hand, there are some
workers who are not efficient
and aren’t wanted by employers.
This group goes long periods
without work, and most jobs
they secure are temporary. But
this group must live and support
families, and they can’t be al-
lowed to starve.
During the last five years, the
government has been taking care
The session of the Congress
which recently closed has en-
acted more major farm legisla-
tion than any other session of
Congress in the history of the
government. Among the more
important one are:
1. Extending the operation of
the present Soil Conservation
Act to 1942.
2. Agricultural Marketing
Agreement Act. This probably
affects more farm producers, in
value, than any other measure
that has been passed.
3. Farm Tenant Act.
4. Reduction of interest on
Land Bank Loans.
5. Perishable Agricultural
6. Great Plains Drought Act.
7. Farm Credit Act of 1937.
8. Crop Loans for 1937.
9. Cotton Classification.
10. Extension of Commodity
The agricultural production of
America is vast and far-reaching.
More than 200 different agri-
cultural commodities are pro-
duced in this country. The total
income from the sale of these
commodities is about $9,500,000,-
000 per year.
We are now endeavoring to
work out general farm legisla-
tion. It is difficult for this to be
done in a way that is fair to all
For instance, the Farm Bureau
presented a bill which on its

nf unfortunates and now face sounds well, but in reality! . . .
of these unfortunates, and ^ ^ u untair to our ought rntpenl even the present
that the burden has dropped off
it would be much cheaper in the
long run for business and industry
to provide some kind of employ-
ment for these workers. Taking
them off the public payroll would
help solve a vexing political prob-
lem created by relief expendi-
tures. Business would got ^ome
direct benefits from their invest-
ment instead of the work being
of a public or semi-public nature.
The intermediate cost of govern-
ment overhead to administer re-
lief would be eliminated and taxes
would be lowered. All that is
needed is someone to come for-
ward with a workable plan for
putting this ideal machine in mo-
corn growers would receive
nearly as much in total payments
as would the producers of wheat,
cotton, rice and tobacco com-
bined. This hardly seems fair to
some of the Representatives from
these latter areas.
Contrary to some reports, the
President has not endorsed the
Farm Bureau bill.
These are just a few of the ob-
jections to that measure.
The Committee on Agriculture
is endeavoring to work out a
real farmers’ bill, taking the best
provisions of the Farm Bureau
bill and eliminating the objec-
tionable ones. We include an
ever-normal granary feature.
We also provide for a continua-

The President and the Direct- j tjon payments with increases,
ors of the Budget have indicated J an£j include surplus control fea-
that the most the farmers could tUres. Then, too, we have added
hope to have appropriated for
a farm program would be about
$500,000,000 per year. This would
mean if this bill were enacted
that farmers could not hope to
receive more than half the
amount they would be promised,
or 50c on the $1.00. I agree with
most of those who have studied
this question that any promise
made by the government should
be lived up to.
Another provision that would
have to be greatly changed in
order to be practicable is the pro-
vision in the Farm Bureau bill
for so-called production “con-
trol.” As a practical matter it is
no control at all. It provides an
allotment to farmers; then per-
mits the farmers to sell any
amount in excess which they pro-
duce, but requires the United I
States District Attorney to file
suit in the federal court for ap-
proximately $40.00 per bale on
cotton, 50c per bushel on wheat,
and 40c per bushel on com as a
penalty for the sale of the excess

1. A reduction in payment to
the larger farmers on a gradu-
ated scale so as to make larger
payments available for the small,
2. Provision for research lab-
oratories in each of the major
agricultural producing areas.
3. A provision authorizing the
Secretary of Agriculture to ap-
ply to the Interstate Commerce
Commission for reduction in
freight rates on farm products.

farmers of America, and the
Committee is working out a

Being Tuned Up to

greatest aviation classic ap-
On Friday, Sept. 3, the flag
will be raised over the races,
and four days of flying, enough
for the most speed-hungry fan,
will get underway.
Already planes are being tuned
here and throughout the country.
At Los Angeles the entrants in
the Bendix cross country derby
are putting the final touches on
ships and engines. Here the
smaller jobs, entered in other
races, and a few of the really
fast planes, entered in the famous
Thompson trophy race, are being
readied for their performances.
Itinerant parachute jumpers
and barnstorming pilots looking
for prize money are coming to
town, and the air race manage-
ment is working itself up to the
frantic stage always reached be-
fore the big show. When the
races actually start, everything
will run smoothly under the ex-
perienced leadership of the

ma?i who builds his own and
enters every event on the card.
An interesting entry in the
Bqpdix is Capt. Alexander Pa-
pana, of the Roumanian Royal
Flying forces. Capt. Papana will
fly a Bellanca, low wing ship
with a 12-cylinder Ranger en-
gine in the nose, and two Men-
asco sixes in the wings.
Also scheduled for Friday is
the Women’s 100-mile handicap
race, drawing such contestants
as Jacqueline Cochrane and Beryl
Markham, the English girl who
flew the Atlantic.
Saturday will see the first
Louis W. Greve speed dashes and
a 397 cubic inch feature race.
Sunday there will be the Thomp-
son qualifying races and more
Greve dashes, and Monday will
be featured by the Thompson
race, a 200-mile free-for-all
around a quadrangular course.
Every day will have parachute
jumping contests and stunt fly-
ing, as well as demonstrations by
the service planes.
Among the stunters recently
entered is Count Otto Hagenburg,
of Germany, whose specialty is
