WEEPING WATER, NEBRASKA
Washington. D. C, Dec. C. Re
vival of the war finance corporation
and action by the federal reserve
board permitting extension by banks
of "liberal" credits to farmers would
be directed in a joint resolution
drafted late today by tho senate agri
cultural committee. The resolution
will lie reported to the senate tomor
row by Senator (Ironna of North Da
kota, the agricultural committee
chairman, who will ask for Imme
diate consideration. I
Members of the committee draft
ing the resolution expressed confi
dence that enough voters were as
sured to bring about its prompt pas
sage, but members of the flnancn com
mittee indicated that they would ask
that it first be referred to them for
consideration, inasmuch as the war
finance corporation was created un
der sx bill drawn by their committee.
Restoration of the war fiiHinee cor
poration to furnish financial aid to
farmers also would be directed in a
concurrent resolution presented to
day in the house of representatives by
Brynes. democrat, of South Carolina
The senate agricultural eommiltee
decided to report its resolution as a
committee measure, hopin? thereby
to save time. With unanimous con
sent under the senate rules the reso
lution could be called twice in one
day and placed on the calendar for
Senator Norris of Nebraska, mem
ber of the , agricultural committee,
first proposed a concurrent resolu
tion, which does not require approval
by the president, but other members
objected on the ground that such a
resolution would not be strong
enough. While not anticipating the
action of the president, democratic
senators made clear their intention
of voting to override a veto if neces
sary. The senate committee's resolution
declares that "unprecedented and un
paralleled distress" exists among the
farmers because of their inability to
market their products at prices equal
ing the cost of production, and that
the people of Europe are in "dire
need" of these products, but not able
to purchase because of existing fin
The resolution further recites that
banks have been unable to extend
credit to farmers so they may hold
their products until "they ran b;
sold in a fair and reasonable market."
'Then followed the resolutions direc
tions, which declare:
"The secretary of the treasury and
the members of the war finance cor
poration are hereby directed to revive
the activities of'The war finance cor
poration and thaj said corporation be
at once rehabilitated with the view
of assisting in the financing of the
exportation of agricultural produce
to foreign markets.
"The federal reserve board is here
by directed to take such action as
may be necessary n permit the mem
ber banks of th federal reserve sys
tem, in accordance with law and con
sistent with sound banking, to grant
liberal extensiou of credit to the far
mers of the country upon security of
the agricultural products now held
by them, by permitting the redis
counting of such notes of extension,
at the lowest possible rates of inter
est." FIBE DAMAGE UP TO MILLION
Houston. Tex., Dec. 7 Fire, which
broke out in the shops of the South

ed a $1,000,000. and the flames

airbrake shops, an office building and
a storehouse, together witha quan
tity of rolling stock, were destroyed.
A stiff wind was carrying the flames
to the heart of the shop district which
covers four blocks.

A prime steer could never be made of this critter, even
if a carload of corn were funneled down his throat.
He lacks something most essential to the making of a
high-priced carcass. That "something" is pure blood.
For all practical purposes, pedigree is the best feed.
If you've heard of a grade steer's topping the market,
it was just because such pure blood as he possessed
had chanced to get in its work, chanced to offset his
scrub blood but it was mere chance! With the
pure-bred it's a planned certainty.
The pure-breds are the easiest
feeders they use their feed to
make prime beef. If you are
ready to do your part in efficient
feeding, get in touch with some
good local breeder and strike
hands with him for the upbuild
ing of your business and of this
The Country Gentleman, the
one great national weekly of
practical farming, advisesyou to

tributors travel some 300,000
miles a year to study and write
about farming in the United
States. And they declare, as a
result of their investigations,
that the most hopeful beef prac
tice is that of breeding good
steers and feeding them where
they are bred.
