Mr. Woods stated, amounted to 19

When the New York stock ex

later than usual, there was such a
huge accumulation of buying orders
that prices of active issues were
whirled up $5 to $30 a share as
blocks of five thousand to 50 thou

These gains were cut down in the
subsequent waves of selling, repre

had bought stocks in Tuesday's re

Total sales in the three-hour trad

opened, London cables carried the re

Ames, la. "The American farmer
should take the leadership in a world
movement to build a rural civilization
in all essentials equivalent to the
great urban civilization now develop
ing," declared Dr. Kenyon L. Butter
field, agricultural leader and honor
ary president of (he American Coun
try Life Association, at the closing
session of the conference here.
"A world-wide organization of
farmers is necessary to avoid the
waste which comes from working at
cross purposes, In the opinion of Dr.
Butterfield, who held that by means
of such an, iagency the forces of
natural sicence, government, educa
tion and religion could be centered
on the universal problem of a better
rural life.
"Labor has its international labor
office," he pointed out. "Banking
interests are setting up a world bank
and educators have an institute of
international education."
Agriculture in the United States
has not taken much interest in inter
national organization thus far, he
continued, the result of an erroneous
view that the farmers in other lands
are so much different in their eco
nomic status that no common bond
exists. At present, the authority felt,
there are more likenesses than differences.
'I think." he said, "the feeling is
growing that cur prosperity is de
pendent on prosperity in other parts
of the world. The important thing is
the buying power of the people. If
this i3 increased throughout the
world, esccially in the remote agri
cultural regions, the market for our
farm products will be widened. An
nternational organization of farmers
n this way will help, rather than
hinder, the disposition of our agri
cultural surplus."
In speaking of the problems the
Federal Farm Board is facing, Ar-
bur M. Hyde, Secretary of Agricul
ture, urged the adoption of a new
land policy in the United States.
The desideration," he said, "is
ot more crops or less crops, but a
higher standard and broader oppor
tunities on the farm."
Although the association does not
sanction the passing of resolutions.
unanimity of poinion was ex
pressed on certain phases of country
fe. Extension of library facilities in
rural districts was felt to be a press
ing need, the county unit being sug
gested, as the most advantageous.
Federal aid for country schools
was urged, as was also the enlarge
ment of the rural school districts to
make possible a sounder financial
basis. Farm organizations were en
couraged to back the movement for
farm home beautification. In the same
connection the conservation of nat
ural beauty spots was emphatically
urged upon local community agen
cies. State planning commissions were
suggested by the Urban Rural Rela
tions Section, led by Nat T. Frame,
director of extension, West Virginia
University. These commissions would
have as their task the formulation
and execution of a long-time plan to
co-ordinate the interests of rural and
urgan life.
"This conference," concluded A.
R. Mann, Dean of Cornell University,
in summarizing the meetings, "has
again focused attention on the need
for a clearly formulated and ade
quate country life program.
"To a greater extent than ever

As an example of " extension of
service and advertising going hand
in hand, Mr. Gibbs cited the case of
the gas industry. "The gas utilities,"
he said, "are engaged in a tremen
dous commercial development, are ex
panding industrial applications and
increasing the volume of business in
those fields at a tremendous rate,
and all of it is based on remarkably
effective advertising campaigns. You
will see before many months new
applications for gas heating which
will startle the world and revolu
tionize some of the most important
branches of industry."
"Rates will continue to go lower,"
he said, "because the public utilities
realize that they are dealing in a
vital service which must be furnished
at steadily lowering rates in keep
insr with increased efficiency in
machinery and operating methods.
"The utilities, in facing this situa
tion, must rely upon advertising to
tell their story, to explain their mo
tives, and the results they are ob
taining." Concluding, Mr. Gibbs said: "The
upward trend of advertising should
be taken for granted. Advancement
and refinement characterize all prog
ress, and advertising must be their
complete reflection."

In a recent interview with the
New York Times, Alfred E. Smith
shows the difference between admin
istration of business affairs and gov
ernment affairs: "It's much easier to
run any organization by common
sense than it is by law," says Mr.
Smith. "The head of a business makes
up his mind to do something. He
saya, Go ahead and shoot,' and the
thing is done. But it's a very dif
ferent thing in public office.
"A certain friend of mine, employ
ed by a big corporation, came up to
Albany while I was governor and put
up an entire building while the state
was digging foundations for one that
was absolutely needed to 'carry on
the state's business. Why was that?
Because every time he wanted to do
something he did not have to send
over to the attorney general's office
to find out whether he had a legal
right to do it. In business everyone
is working for the benefit of ihe con
cern; there are no legislators of a,
different party who selfishly retard
measures for improvement In order
to advance their own ends."
So long as public officials seek;
votes and are responsible to no one,
we shall have waste and inefficiency
when government goes into business.
Progress is the result of individual
genius and responsibility. America
has grown with a maximum of busi
ness freedom and a minimum of government.
