Farmers Can’t Get Help;
WPA Jobs Lure Hands
Springfield, III.—From all over

complaints that farmers cannot ob

Farmers in past years have been
able to get skilled help for $23 or
$30 a month and keep, according to
the association. "This year farm
hands in many cases refuse to take
Jobs on the farm and frankly say
that they would rather work for the
WPA three or four days a week,"
says an IAA statement. “They say
that while the farm wages with

prefer to work less and take less
A survey by a Rockford newspa
per sliowed a need for 1,000 farm
hands in Winnebago, Boone and
Ogle counties. L. IV. Braham, Will
county farm adviser, reported many
appeals from farmers for help.
“The farmers resent the Idea that
they are unuble to get help when
there are so many men on relief,”
said Braham. “These farmers say
the relief situation has reached
the point where they must compete
with the federal government.”
Similar complaints were heard In
Kankakee, Cook, De Kalb, Du Page,
La Salle, Vermillion, Champaign,
Edgar and Douglas counties. Of
recent weeks shortage of help has
lieen reported In Minnesota, Wiscon
sin, Michigan, Kansas and other
states, because hands preferred to
work for the federal government
and let the taxpayer foot the bills.
Prairie States Boil
Over Farley’s Slur
Washington.—Rumblings of indig
nation against Postmaster-General
James A. Farley’s slur against the
prairie states in a speech made at
Grand Rapids, Mich., came to a
head in an outburst on the floor of
the house of representatives by
Dewey Short of Missouri. Farley
had predicted that the Republican
nominee In the coming election
would be the governor of “a typical
prairie state” whose experience as
such scarcely fitted him for the
“1 was amazed to read that state
ment," declared Short. "It is ab
solutely inexcusable in any member
of the cabinet and chairman of his
party. I want It understood that
I ain not advocating the candidacy
of any person. There are many fit
candidates in the Republican party.
But I resent the slur and slander
by the postmaster general passed
not only upon the citizens of Kan
sas, but upon the citizens of Mis.
souri, Illinois, Indiana and nil the
other great prairie stntes.”

Open Gates to For
By Representative Allen T Tread
way, of Massachusetts.
It is clear that instead of pro
tecting the home market the New
Deal has invited further compe
tition from abroad. Such was its
declared purpose when the legis
lation authorizing the trade treaty
program was passed.
It was argued that the only way
we could regain our foreign trade
was by allowing foreign countries
to sell us more of their products.
In spite of the fact that two
thirds of our imports, on a value
basis, were already free of duty,
the New Deal insisted that the
gates should be opened wider to
foreign goods. The fallacy of the
administration’s program has al
ready been demonstrated.
These trade treaties do not bind
foreign countries to purchase any
goods in our markets. What is
happening is that they are taking
advantage of the opportunity
which the New ‘Deal afforded them
to sell in the United States, but
they are spending their money
There is nothing to indicate that
a continuation of the New Deal’s
“good neighbor policy’’ will have
any different result. American
producers are being sold out and
we are receiving no compensating
benefits from foreign countries.
Our farmers were promised an
outlet for their surplus commodit
ies as soon as the trade treaty pro
gram got under way.
Instead, they have seen their
foreign markets shrink still fur
For example, our exports of
wheat and wheat flour declined
