What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Drops \Parity Prices\ , Ø KE of the administration's chief policies for agriculture has been abandoned, Secretary Wallace announced in Washington. \Parity prices\ for farm Il products. he said, could not be at- tained. The aim now will be to give \the • average farmer the same purchasing power he had in the , t h h a If World durwy war. \I don't think there is any way of getting enough mon- Rec. Wallace e) . \ out of the Treas- . ury,\ Wallace said, \to give farmers parity prices dur- ing the next ten years for cotton, wheat, corn, hogs, or any other prod- uct that is exported. You might be able to get enough for a year or two to do this. But the consumer would soon rise up in protest.\ Wallace also talked about the soil conservation program, under which farmers must hold acreage of major crops below the 1928-37 average in . order to obtain benefit payments. He said the only fault with this was that normal yields would be too large in view of the prospective markets. The secretary still believes that national control over production of the major farm crops is necessary. \In my opinion.\ he said, \the principle of co-operative crop ad- justment is sound and will eventu- ally be applied again.\ —e— Pidcral SUMMARIZES THE WORLD'S WEEK Walltlall Newspaper Umon. poliomyelitis or infantile paralysis. It will carry on an educational cam- paign supervised by experts and put within reach of all doctors and hos- pitals. The foundation also will see to the financing of responsible re- search agencies and aid the afflicted in becoming economically indepen- dent. Mr. Roosevelt also gave approval to John Biggers plans for a volun- tary enrollment of the nation's un- employed, to be carried out with the aid of the Post Office department. Douglas Heads SEC WALL STREET didn't like the \ idea of having William 0. Douglas as chairman of the Se- curities and Exchange commission, preferring the more conservative George C. Mathews. However, Douglas was elected to the post, succeeding James M. Landis: and to reassure the financiers he de- scribed himself as \a pretty con- • servative sort of fellow from the Legion Head Hits Naziism old school, a school too old for some FOUR hundred thousand members to remember.\ who has in mind a of the American Legion and \no ruinous theories of social ex. their families and friends gathered perimentation.\ in New York for the annual conven- Nanking and Canton Bombed pAYING no attention to the pro - a tests of the United States, Great Britain, France and Germany, Ja- pan sent her air fleets on bombing raids that spread death and ruin in Nanking and Canton. Chinese planes met them and fought bravely but with little avail. American Am- bassador Nelson Johnson, under in- structions from Washington, regret- fully abandOned his embassy in the Chinese capital and put his staff aboard the patrol boat Luzon, but they returned to Nanking. It was reported in Tokyo that Chiang Kai- shek would remove the seat of the Chinese government to Chengtu. The \soviet republic of China\ has dissolved itself and the com- munist Chinese army decided to unite with Chiang's forces. Madam Perkins Snubbed F OR the first time in the history of the Labor department, the secretary is not asked to address the annual convention of the Amer- ican Federation of Labor, to be held in Denver. The list of invited speakers was released, but the name of Madam Perkins was not there. The secretary, whose admin- istration of her office never has been taken very seriously by the country, is considered by the A. F. of L. to be prejudiced in favor of its rival, the C. I. 0. —a -- The commission, said the former lion of the organize- , Yale professor. is not interested in tion which opened prices as such and will interfere with a memorial with market trends only when the service for dead vet- , forcea that shape them are artifi- erans.

Mrs. Roosevelt was with her husband. The President had nothing to say, before his departure, concerning Justice Black, who was on his way back across the Atlantic and was scheduled to take his seat on the Supreme court bench before Mr. Roosevelt's return to Washington. Plan to Fight \Polio\ J UST before leaving for the Pacific coast, the President announced that he was organizing a new foun- dation to direct the war against notable report on his stewarostup, warning against dangers confront- ing the nation from within and with- out. Colmer declared attempts to sub- jugate judiciary would 'destroy the \checks and balances\ in govern- ment; and he proposed that the American Legion undertake an edu- cational program on the principles set forth in the Constitution. He asked each post to hold at least one meeting this fall on the basic law. The commander's warning against perils from without led him to con- demn 'severely German propaganda in the United States and the alleged action of the German government in fostering the organization of Nazi groups and camps in this country. This he called \a gratuitous insult to our free institutions.\ The Legion elected Daniel J. llotterty, a lawyer of Boston, Mass., national commander and awarded the 1938 convention to Los Angeles. Besides condemning Communism, Fascism and Nazism, the conven- tion called for a larger and better equipped army and navy and far a ban on the report of helium gaga Eden Still Hopeful A NTHONY EDEN, British foreign A a* minister, hurried from Geneva to attend a special cabinet meeting to which he reported on develop- ments in the Medi- terranean situation that is so threaten- ing to European peace. He told of It- aly's reiteration of its demand for par- ity in the \anti - piracy\ patrol, and it was believed both he and Prime Min- ister Chamberlain were hopeful that a rupture could be Anthony averted by a partial Eden yielding to Mussolini in this matter. British public opinion was said to be strongly against a complete con- cession. Meanwhile events in the Mediter- ranean were not such as to bolster Eden's peaceful designs. The Brit- ish aircraft carrier Glorious report- ed it had been attacked by a sub- marine near Malta just as it ar- rived to take part in the patrol of the sea. Also the admiralty an- nounced an unidentified airplane dropped six bombs close to the de- stroyer Fearless. The British and French fleets began their search for \pirate\ submarines, Spain's premier, Juan Negrin, stood up before the League of Na- tions and fearlessly presented the evidence of Italian and German in- tervention in the Spanish civil war, demanding that the league take steps to stop it. He called Mussolini and Hiller \international highwaymen.\ The assembly of the League of Nations voted down the Spanish government's request for re-election as a member of the league council. President on Constitution A LL orators on the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of the sign- ing of the Constitution were loud in praise of that great document. Pres- ident Roosevelt, speaking from the foot of the Washington monument, was emphatic in his expression of admiration for and loyalty to the basic law which his opponents have accused him of trying to under- mine. But he called it a \layman's constitution, not a lawyer's con- tract.\ He reiterated his asser- tions that the Constitution was in- tended by its makers to be a state- ment of objectives and not a rigid document, and declared democratic government in this country can do all things which \commonsense peo- ple, seeing the picture as a whole, have the right to expect.\ \I believe that these things can be done under the Constitution with- out the surrender of a single one of the civil and religious liberties it was intended to safeguard,\ Mr. Roosevelt continued, \and I am de- termined- that under the Constitu- tion those things shall be done.\ Green Slams Lewis ENUNCIATIONS of William Green by John Lewis and of Lewis by Green come almost daily, but the attack on the C. I. 0. leader by the president of the A. F. of L. in a speech in Washington was es- pecially vigorous. He declared the beetle-browed Lewis was an oppor- tunist who hopes to gain political power through the formation of a party combining labor and agricul- ture, and reiterated the opposition of the federation to the organization of such a party. Lewis, said Green, was to blame for the bloody strike in \little steel\ plants and for its collapse which he attributed to C. I. 0.'s disregard of the rule that the workers them- selves should decide when to strike. \Surely those who are to suffer and sacrifice in a strike ought to be accorded the right to say whether they are ready and willing to do so,\ Green asserted. \The issues involved in any impending indus- trial conflict ought to be made clear and thoroughly understood.\ Vandenberg's Battle Cry \MU E HAVE just begun to fight\ TV was the battle cry adopted by Senator Vandenberg of Michigan in a speech at Bay City that was taken as the opening of.his campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1940. He made it evi- dent that he hopes to be the stand- ard bearer for a coalition party, as- serting that a realignment of politi- cal parties is inevitable. Indeed, he declared, this probably was the one thing that could save our na- tional institutions. He was not so sure that the opposition to the Roose- velt policies would unite under a new party name. Said he: \There may be a realistic realign- ment which will bring like -thinking patriots into common battle front, whether they live north or south of the Mason and Dixon line, whether they live east or west of the Mis- sissippi.\ —*— Biggers to Manage Census U NCLE SAM is going to make a count of his unemployed nephews in the hope that this will help solve the re-employment and relief problem. Just how the census is to be managed is not yet deter- mined, but John D. Biggers of To- ledo, president of the Libby -Owens - Ford Glass company, has been named administrator of the under- taking and is formulating his plans. At the suggestion of the President, Mr. Biggers has established his headquarters in the Department of Commerce, and he hopes to com- plete the tabulation of the unem- ployed before December 1. Mr. Biggers said he proposed to do the job without salary. . • .•,‘• , 7 • a: I WANT COLUMN Ads in this column charged for as follows: Per line first Insertion, 10c.
