HE PRAISES STATE'S RESOURCES
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., June 25.
Governor George W. Clarke wu
the principal speaker today at Iowa
Day at the Panama Pacific exposi
tion. The welcome he encountered
was hopefully expected to obliterate
any Impressions he might have re
ceived when yesterday he arrived at
Oakland, ferried across the bay and
hunted up his hotel alone for his im
It was explained to him that his
staff of seventeen colonels, lieuten
ant colonels and other officers who
had arrived the day before, and
many high exposition officials had
gone to meet him at the wrong time.
Two hundred persons at Des
Moines were reported "listening in"
by telephone while the governor
made his address.
Miss Frances Clarke, the govern
or's daughter, sang "Iowa." A lunch
a dinner and a reception were fea
tures of the program.
Governor George W.. Clarke. In his ad
dress, said that there was nothing idle
about the boast that the Hawkeye state
was the "Garden Spot of the World."
He declared the statement had come to
be the consensus of opinion of the "com
petent of all other states who have vis
ited her or come to understand her vast
resource!." The governor declared that
conditions of heat and oold, sunshine and
rain, richness and responsiveness of ;cl!
throughout the entire extent of Iowa's
area are so perfectly balanced aa to Jus
tify the title.
"Whatever may happen or has hap
pened elsewhere, Iowa never brings anx
iety to her people," said the governor.
"The products of its fields, frequently lav
ish, are alwsys abundant. Like charity,
Iowa never falls. There is a sense of se
curity and substantiality In Iowa."
Billion in Farm Prod acts.
The governor declared that Iowa's crop
production la now more than twice as
much as It was fourteen years ago. "Last
year," he said, "It was W7.143.418, and,
when the value of live stock Is added the
1914 value rises to tl.01S,S8S,41. What the
state can do agriculturally is shown by
Its unrivalled exhibits here and the pre
miums It has taken.
"Iowa's School of Agriculture and Me
chanic Arts and I am only modestly
stating an everywhere conceded fact.
when I say this school Is the greatest
of Its kind in the world has been - a
wonderful help in Increasing Iowa farm
production and animal husbandry. The
state challenges the world on fine cattle.
Iowa appreciates this great school and last
year there was expended there 11,119,800.
The state believes In an educated citizen
ship and lsst yesr expended on educa
'The state is not simply agricultural.
It would be interesting to tell you of the
manufacturing Industries. Last year the
output of its faotortes waa t3SO.OO0.O0O."
The governor reviewed the history of
the state from the time the Indians were
Its only Inhabitants and told of the rec
ord It had mads In cltlscnshlp, pointing
to those who had filled Important roles
In the history of the nation.
