[ IIIII IIIII I THE BEACH REVIEW II FARMERS ......... UNION WlLLHELP TO SELLTURKEYS Organization Has Set-Up for Secur- ing Top Market Price Can Create Prosperity The Farmers Union Turkey Marketing Association of James- town, North Dakota, will assist ~ny interested community in or- ganizing a concentration point and will arrange the financing of pool- ing operations, advances and nec- essary supplies. This central or- ganization also arranges for a Federal Grader and the concentra- tion dates when a grader will be available. Lower freight rates, the possible use of water transporta- tion, lower cost of boxes, lighter boxes, less carryover and the poli- cy of packing at central points represent additional savings that will be reflected to our patrons this year, says H. R. SoIberg, in the Farmers Union Herald. Operating on the pool basis, this organization finds it necessary to take the wide margin of profit that has been the policy of mar- keting outlets in the past. The co- operative method of marketing re. turns the full terminal market value of the turkeys with only the necessary costs deducted. 0nly the cooperative method can return this full value and the grower who markets through private agencies will, on the basis of several mar- kets. inevitably take less. Our sales agency Is the out- standing agency in the East and handles a very large volume of federal graded turkeys from co- operative pools. Our box pack and our brand Is better known each year and today sells on a prefer- ence basis. Early in November shlpments will begin and 1935 marketing will h~ under way. The turkey crop is well under that of last year, par- ticularly in sections of the North- west. Market authorities there- fore predict the 1935 price level to be as high and possibly a little higher than last year. For concentration points that can assure a volume of 20,000 pounds (about 1.700 turkeys) we suggest shipping by car-load freight. The turkeys are Federal Graded, an advance is paid when the turkeys are delivered, the birds are packed in boxes accord- ing to grade, and final payment is made when the cars are sold. Only turkeys are accepted. At many points the local association arranges to pick the turkeys if the producer so desires, Where there is no arrangement of this kind only dressed birds are ac- cepted, N, D, FARMER GAINS MAKING OWN FLOUR Light Weight Wheat Proves of Higher Value than Quoted. How a farmer realized a $54 value from a load of wheat for which the grain gamblers offered only $28 is a story which complete- ly explodes the alibis which these same grain gamblers have been building up this fall to discredit the northwest's light weight wheat to protect their greedy competitive system. Albert Bjerke is a farmer near Finley. He also served in the state legislature last winter. Not long ago he hauled some cf his 1935 wheat crop to town, and the eleva- ~Ior refused to take it at any price. He was told it "just wasn't fit for flour," Only 43-Lb[ Wheat. Mr. Bjerko resolved to find out a few things. He loaded 70 bu- shels of his wheat into a truck and took it to May~ille. 22 miles away. This wheat was a part of the same offering he had tried to sell and It weighed only 43 pounds to the bu. shel. At MayvlIle, this light wheat was cleaned, washed and milled into flour in the local flour mill. Mr. Bjerke received 12 98-pound sacks of flour and left the bran and other by-products with the miller to cover the cost of process- ing. Baked Into Bread. This flour, at current prices, was worth $4.50 a sack, or $54. At the same time, 43-pound wheat was worth only 40 cents n bushel to the Minneapolis grain trade--$2$ for the 70-bushel lead. But this wasn't all. Mr, Bjerke left some of this flour with the Mayville bakery. The rest he took home. The bakery made bread out of it; so did Mrs. Bjerke. A few days later there was a big picnic near Finley, attended by 5,000 farmers. Congressman Usher L. Burdlck was the principal speak- er. He gave a wonderful talk~ but Mr, BJerke provided an un- scheduled and perhaps the most pertinent feature of ,the program. They All Liked It. The bread served at the picnic was nDde from Mr. Bjerke's flour, part cf it baked by the Mayvllle bakery and the rest by Mrs. BJerke. Everybody said it was fine bread, as good as any they were accus- tomcd to baking or buying. It was admit:ted the ll,~ur was not quite so s~.ov~,whit~ as the fancy "pa- t3r'-'/ b'. then it was not sub it, tee ..... t'-~ f~ncy bleacM~ pro- "If the day ever comes when farmers compete a- mong themselves on a wholesale scale, the World will then realize the true meaning of unfair competi- tion." Hollis Shombo of the Vir- ginia Department of AgricuI~ lure so stated before the re- cent American Institute of Cooperation. "This wl?olesale competi- tion, however, will never happen as long as a market- ing system exists whose principles can be used by m a r k e t i n g organizations throughout the nation. Farm- ers individually would do better to stay out of the marketing field and support marketing organizations that have shown their ability to create a new dollar for them. "Standardized products, co- operatively marketed, will do much to bring permanent prosperity to American agri- culture." Marked Increases In Consumer Co-operatlves A heavy increase In the number of consumers' co-operative buying organizations developed last year, according to Dr. Kenneth Dame- ron, professor of marketing at Ohio State University. A survey he has Just completed shows a gain cf over 1.500 consumer co-operatives throughout the country in the last twelve months. Dr. Dameron sad the iucrease Is continuing. While many of them were originally confined to pur- chases of gasoline and oil pro- ducts, most of the country's co-ops are now broadening the number of merchandise lines they are hand- ling. Increases of co-operatives among university students and fa- culties have been marked, he said. ECONOMIC SERFDOM IF AAA IS DEFEATED Officer of New Economic Equality League Talks in Minnesota Minnesota farmers must come to the defense of the AAA or be resigned to economic serfdom, O, L. Brownlee, Sioux City, In., treas- urer of the league of economic equality, asserted at a Mankato, Minn: meeting last week. Brownlee opened the first of a series cf state meetings of the Minnesota branch of the league, organized at Sioux City in August by farmers of four states who felt the need of organized defense of the new deal farm program. "The middlewest farmer must chobse between parity and peas- antry," Brownlee pointed out. "It is essential the AAA be protected now against selfish interests that would destroy its benefits." The power of the new league is attested by the fact, Brownlee claimed, that it now has represen- tatives in 21 states. In the event the AAA is found unconstitutional by the United States supreme court, these groups will file a coun- ter suit testing the validity of the existing protective tariff laws, passed Brownlee said, at the be- hest of big business. ceases developed by these oh-so- pure millers. But it was better bread, all things considered, than the stuff turned out by city bak- ers, which has all the whiteness and almost the flavor of a wad of cotton. 45-Cent Chiseling Mr. Bjerke told his story--after the bread was eaten. He added that the Mayvllle miller estimated this wheat actually was worth 85 cents a bushel in milling value, based on its weight and the price of No. 1 wheat. AAA Director Gives Reasons For Protest by Consumers The temporary shortage of meat supplies and current reduced num- bers of livestock on farms are the direct result of last year's unpre- cedented drouth, asserts Andrew Boss. state director of AAA pro- grams, University Farm. St. PauL What many people, city con- sumers in particularly, fail to re. alize is the close relationship that exists between meat supplies and livestock feed supplies, Mr. Boss says. Therefore consumers have been easily misled by those op- posed to agricultural adjustment into believing that the current shortage of livestock for slaugh- ter has resulted from the so-called "little pig program" of 1933, the 1934 corn-hog contract, and the drouth livestock purchases last year. Meat supplies are determined by the number and weights of ani- mals marketed which in turn de- pends largely upon the supply and cost of feed. When the harvest is small--as was the case last year--the numbers of livestock going to market the following year is also small. This is especially true with re- gard to hogs, Mr. Boss continues, for each year hogs consume near- ly one-half of the nation's corn crop. Last year corn was cut one billion bushels by one of the worst drouths in United States history; hence the sharp reduction in the hog population and the small num- bers of hogs now going to market. The production of oats and bar- ley dropped more than 50 per cent and the total supplies of feed grains harvested in 1934 equalled but 60 per cent of the 192S-32 av- erage. Hay production, upon which cattle depend heavily for winter feed, dropped more than 40 per cent from the five-year average, and in many sections pastures fail- ed completely. This great reduction in feed supplies can only be attributed to last year's drouth, Mr. Boss ex- plains, for the harvest of hay and emergency crops planted on the 36 million acres held out of corn, wheat, cotton, and tobacco more than equalled in feeding value the amount of corn that might have been raised last year on the 1.~ million acres out of corn. As a result of last year's drouth, large numbers of livestock were sold to balance livestock with feed supplies. This liquidation, how- ever, would have been much more severe, Mr. Boss points out, if the adjustment program previously had not reduced hog numbers, thereby saving millions of bushels of corn and other feed for later use. Livestock and slaughter supplies will continua short throughout 1935, governmen reports indicate, but the signs for 1936 are more encouraging. The number of sows due to farrow this fall will be about 20 per cent larger than last fall; hogs will be marketed at heavier weights next winter than last; and more grain-fed cattle will probably be marketed in the first half of 1936 than during thQ corresponding 1935 period. Consumer Consciousness "The masses of the people In the U. 8. are not consumer conscious. They act like pro- ducers. Employers fight labor on a producer's battle-front. The average labor union ill producer conscious. Average housewives, who do two.thirds of the nation's buying, are ex. ploited, becsuss they ars not consumer conscious. They are in the clutches of advertisers. Control of society Is in the hands of producers who dom- inate unorganized consumer=. ,Labor should think of itself as producers individually, but all consumers collectively." --Ce- cil Crews.

I Cheap Eggs for Soldiers l | Government Railroads? I Governor Brann of Maine Is unwill- ing to share expenses, and President Roosevelt may drop the Passamaquod- dy power project. That would be a national misfortune. While spending bllilons so freely, it would seem worth while to spend thirty-six little millions to harness the gigantic tide power In the Bay of Fundy. Development of that project would supply the whole state of Maine with pow~ and industrial prosperity and pay for itself. To allow the vast power of one of the highest tides on earth to continue going to waste would be as foolish as it would be to cease using the power of Niagara, In Milan, Cardinal Schuster, eele- bra~ing mass for those that died In the Fascist march en Rome, indorses earnestly Mussolini's invasion cf Ethi- opia, praising "the valiant army which. In Intrepid obedience to the command of their fatherland at the price of their blood, open the doors of Ethiopia to the Catholic faith and the civilization of Rome." Also, according to Associated Press. the c~rdlnal praised Fascism as "prom- lsing the national morality wished by the Catholic church." Italian soldiers In Ethiopia, much surprised, can buy as many fresh eggs as they want at ridiculously low prices. Ethiopians will not eat eggs--their religion forbids them to devour "that which might have life tn the future," but they are willing to sell the eggs to the Italian soldiers and let them im- peril their immortal souls by "devour- ing future life" If they choose. Ethiopian tribesmen have no scruples about eating the chicken, once It is hatched, whlcb shows that rellglous scruples take interesting forms. What about the "fature life" that the hen might have produced? Railway labor unions plan a Wash- Ington lobby, to promote government purchase and operation of railroads. Owners of some railroads would gladly share the expense of that lobby, if they could sell their railroads at a fair price. Running a railroa~l In competition with automobiles, motor busses and trucks is like running a legitimate hotel in competition with night clubs and other former ~peakeasles. Russia is a successful spy hunter, having convicted on the average one every six hours, according to "Col- ller's." If. In Russia. you are convicted ef spying, no second conviction is ever necessary or possible. These 100.000 spies, to e,~rn their money, must keep international sus- picion alive, and that helps to keep war alive. Rejoicing tn the fact that "the ]3 years of the Fascist regime have not passed In vain, and the world of plu- tocratic and conservative egotisms is obliged to take note of this," Musso- lini denounces League of N~Hlons sanc- tions aimed at him as "a preposterous crime destined to increase disorder and distress in every country." Pan-American Air Lines asks sir travelers: "Shall we serve cocktails to passengers?" The answer should be emphstlcally "no." First, the average cocktail Is unfit for any stomach, except perhaps that of a carrion-eating hyena; sec- ond. it has been proved more than once that alcohol and flying do not mix well. The President inspected "fortlflca- tlons" of the Panama canal, returning from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Unfortunately there are no fortlflca- lions on the Panama canal. The canal depends on its locks and they, open to attack from the air, could easily be destroyed. No engineer will deny that. The way to have a '~fortified" canal Is to build one at sea level. In these spending days that might be done now, through Nicaragua, Uncle Sam would have someHdng to show for his money more substantial than groups of weary gentlemen "rak. ing leaves." There is encouragement In the fact that "reguhtr jobs," not the artificial made-to-order kind, are increasing. Three hundred and fifty thousand men were hired in September, and payrolls for September are $12,000,000 a week above August.

W.N-U SarvI~l, H F.O# .-I DAY I DR. JAMF=S W. BARTON I;I; T TNDERWEIGHT men and women are frequently the slaves of disordered 'nerves.' They are restless, active and over- conscientious people who usually work beyond their strength be- cause their strength is not up to the average. They worry and expect the worst possible outcome of every- thing. They are possessed with the fear for their health, fear for failure In business, fear for safety of family and friends. Most of them have di- gestive disturbances and are afraid to eat certain common foods because they do not agree with them--at least at some time in the past they have felt some discomfort after eating one of these foods. It is not uncommon f~r physicians treating this class ef pa- tients to overcome much of their fear and difficulty by convincing them that they are mistaken, and as soon as this is done they find that the foods which they feared cause no distress what- ever." I am quoting the words of Prof. E. V. McColium, Johns Hopkins univer- sity, on "How to Increase Weight." These "nervous" cases of under- weight need three things: (1) a better state of nutrition which means more fat on their bodies, good digestion and in- creased strength; (2) the ability to rest suf- ficiently so that they can recover from the effects of accumulated fatigue--these people have been overtired a long time. Rest gives the circulation a Dr. B~rton chance to rid the blood of the waste products ; (3) they must learn healthy and whole- some habits of thought--get away from their worries and fears. This will im- prove their outlook on life. From the food standpoint these in- dividuals must follow the opposite course to those who are trying to re- duce weight. Overweights eat plenty of meat and eggs but cut down ou fats and starch foods. Underweights while cutting down slightly on meats, must greatly increase their fat and starch foods. The fat foods are butter, cream, fat meat. The starch foods are bread, potatoes, sugars, pastry. Doctor McCollum points out that the all-round diet is necessary--as more than fat on the body is needed for health. Another point emphasized is rest. Rest is equal to food In maintaining and increasing weight. Sometimes rest alone is sufficient to bring on a satisfactory increase in weight. These thin nervous individuals are usually so active that unless they are actual- ly lying down, they seem to be a~lways moving about. Thus the thin individual who would store more fat must include in his pro- gram a resolution to keep himself calm, and cut down his physical activ- ity to the lowest possible point. If he can get to the place where 5e is will- ing to let others d~o some of his work, and take on some of his respons:,bility --that is if he can become carefree-- he is well on his way toward an in- crease in weight. However, all underweight is not due to nervousness, or to n family tendency to thinness, but may be due to what Is called focal infection; that is where an infection tn one part of the body may affect some other organ or may ~ffect the body as a whole. Thus In- fected tonsils, infected teeth, infected sinuses, infected gall bladder may be so undermining the system that loss of weight naturally follows. This means then that an examination by the doctor and dentist should be the first thought when there is tiredness and underweight. "When one wants to increase weight It is wise to plan the menus so that both salads and leafy vegetables find a prominent place in them. "About one-quarter to oar-fifth more food than usual should be eaten sc that if rest is also taken this extra amount of food may be stored in the body in the form of fat." The appetite ts also a great factor in increasing weight. The meals should be spread well apart so that there is real hunger which Induces appetite. "One should strive to have a well organized life and to have the appe- tite and the emotions under control. The daily life should be so planned that eating is done at regular times and with suitable rest of the digestive organs between meals." Step= in Curing Underweight 1. The removal of any infection which may mean examination by phy- sician and dentist, 2, The building up of the body by the use of rich nourishing foods such as butter, cream, bacon, milk, eggs. meat, sugar, cocoa. 3. The use of av adomlnal support ~t the IJeginning of tl~e building up proc- ess as this not only holds tbe organs up in position, hut gives tbe thin indi- vidual some general ~pporr, thus en- abling him to be el) and about more. This being able to be about more is helpful to the mind also. 4. Rest. Sometimes thls means a complete rest for a few weeks, but for the majority where possible a half hour's rest morning and afternoon ma~ be vufficlent. ~--W~ Service. Fake Fingerprints May Divert. Police Suspicion Fingerprints of different people, as we know. are never the same. But it Is possible for a crook to imitate a genuine fingerprint so that the sus- picion of the police cau be diverted, says Pearson's Weekly. How this can be done has been shown by Dr. Harold Cummins of the Tulane University of Medicine. Chicago. Taking nn original genuine fingerprint, he had it engraved, and made a three dimensional negative in wax. Then he took a cast in gelatin on a dummy finger. Twelve of the 32 prints he made with the dummy finger were declared by fin- gerprint experts to be genuine. Though this proportion Is not very great, the United States authorities believe It is sufficient to allow crlm- inals many opportunities to put the police on false trails.
