FARM BLOC SERVES NOTICE OP
PLAN FOR MODIFICATION OP.
WANTS GUARANTEE REMOVED
Senator Capper Ssys Objectionable
Ftaturee of taw Must Be Repsslsd
if American Farmers Are to Be
Saved Prom Ruin.
j By JAMES P. HORNAOAY
Washington. Tli fiirm bloc in pub
lic life under the leudcrliip of Senator
I Arthur Cupper (Hep., Kuns.) Im nerving
1 notice on nil Interested person ttmt
mile there Is nnotl.er nliarp reduction
In railroad freight rule th bloc will
Seek to rnnke over the IrmisportatM n
act of February, l!CO, at (lie next ses
sion of the cmigiess whether Hint
session Muill bei(in In November or
Ifcwmher. The Kansas senator In
serving this notice say he grently
regret Unit the senate did not at the
lust Reunion art on his bill repealing
section 1"-A of the transportation art
the rate-making e'.ause.
"This bill If passed would have
i given stnte rallri nd commissioner
I more control over rote," say Senator
Cupper. "It would have terminated
the exeHlve charges by removing the
so-cslled guarantee In the Eseh-Cuin-mlns
law and so have made possible
the return of good times and a itenulne
revival of business In the only way In
which they can come to stay.
"The farm bloc at the next session,"
aays the senator in conclusion, "will
urge tlie passage of this bill, or a
similar measure, repealing the objec
tionable provision of the Eseh-Oum-mlns
act. Sooner or later this must be
done. Far better to do it sooner and
bring to an end the ruinous endurance
context which tin brought our creates!
prosperity maker, the farm, to the
verge of ruin."
There seem to be small prosart of
the railroads voluntarily making any
further reduction in freight rates In
the near future, or of the Interstate
commerce commission' ordering the
reduction, and ho it would aaar that
when the congress reconvene the pro
posed repeal of the rate-making sec
tion of the transportation act will be
a real Issue.
It Already Is sn Issue.
Indeed, it 1 very lunch of an issue
in a K'mhI many counreSNbinal districts
at the present time and in Home sena
torial contests. The farm bloc, which
by no means confines its activities to
the congress, I seeking to put S large
iiiiiiiIht of candidates for the congress
on record In regard to freight rates
and the proposed reeal of the rate
inaklng section of the railroad act
The farmer in some sections of the
country. It Is asserted, have the cordial
support of manufacturing Industries
In their demand for lower freight
rate. From all accounts, transporta
tion rates and rates of taxation are
the topic the farmers and the busi
ness men of the country are moat In
terested in at the present time. This
being the rase, men who are seeking
seats ill congress tire being compelled
to discuss these subjects, it is asserted,
whether they prefer to do It or not.
In his appeal to I lie farm bloc in con
gress and out Senator Capper says
railroad onVlalH estimate that for the
last five month of the present calen
dar year the class 1 rallrouds will earn
net operating Incomes of $48U,0UO,0t.).
This, he says, will make a totul of
$1SHI,nsmsi for the year compared
with earnings of ftil.'i.iMsl.iSK) for the
calendar year l'.l-l. These total earn
ings eutml 5 per cent on f lH.tSSl.ltUl.lKK),
the total proiK-rty value of the rail
roads, in the United States.
Big Crops May Bs a Liability.
The senator then makes this appli
cation of his figures:
'I'oinpure this with the reported
loss this season ut more than hulf of
this country's greut fruit crop because
It cost I lie growers more money to ship
their fruit than to let It rot. Now it is
the grain belt's turn to suffer. The
stockmen will come next. I'nless we
have lower freight rates speedily our
big crop from which we have hoped so
much, will become more of a liability
thau an asset. Much lower prices this
harvest, three years of losses, and the
blglier-lhaii-war rail rateu are consum
ing our fanners. They have readied
their lust ditch. They ruu endure no
The senator aays that "if we are to
save the situutlou autl this Is no spe
ciul plea since it vitally concerns the
general wtlfure let me say most
solemnly and earnestly that the rail
roads must voluntarily and at once
make further rate reductions or in de
fault of such actiou l hut the Interstate
commerce coiuuiissioii must with ut
most promptness put such rates luto

Ilepresciitatlve llurton V. Mweef of

Walsh of Masachnetts (Item.), art
expected lo handle the legislation,
which pmpie to amend the present
law consolidating Into the L'nltet!
Rtates veterens' bureau the several
agencies formerly charged with tha
duty of raring for distillled men.
"Kuture legislation for the disabled
ei-servlre men will be nerewmry," said
Congressman Sweet In commenting im
the provisions of his new bill which
has hren before congress slnre lust
April so that all member have had
an opportunity to become ai-qualnted
with the detail of ll provision.
"So far a the l. A. V. Is con
cerned," said ('. Hamilton Cook of
IlhfTiilo. initio!, a! commander, "we
haven't l.enrd of anyone who Is op
Hsed to the Sw'eet bill. 'Some slight
change might be necessary, but the
sentiment In favor of the broad provi
sions proposed set-in to be unanimous.
That being m, It I desirable to hasten
eimctjieiit of the legislation. Men now
disabled or In hospital need the more
Illumine risislilcrutlon which the terms
of the bill provide. Any additional ex
pense Involved will he trifling, and any
way in dealing with these men that I
not a matter to be reckoned."
Changsa Thst Are Proposed.
As outlined by Itepreseulutive Sweet
In the Congressional ItiN'ord, the new
Sweet bill proposes to make these
ainci.dim nt to the existing law:
a. To penult the veterans' bureau
to rate men who have been or may be
In hosp tnls or asvliitns for a contin
uous -rlod of one year ns totally snd
permanently disabled. This is the
chief provision of the bill.
h. That reduction of a disabled
man's compensation shall not be made
unless-'he ha had n physical exami
ruitlisi before such action I taken, and
In no rase without three months'
c. That soldier developing psy
chosis, neurosis, psycho-neurosis, ac
tive tuberculosis or chronic empyema
within three years after their separ
stion from service shall be deemed to
have acquired the ailment while In the
service. Tfae. present law limits this
peril! to two years.
. That decent burial shall be pro
vided, the veterans' bureau to pay not
more than f'MO for funeral expenses
and $T for a flag to drape the coffin.
e. That more liberal arrangements
shall be maile for reinstatement of
lapsed Insurance poildes.
t. That each patient discharged from
a hospital shall be furnished with a
statement of the medical findings of
Reawakened Interest In Europe.
The probable return of the Turk
to Euroe for an. Indefinite stay has
served to awaken dormant Interest
In the United States In foreign
affairs, and eieclally in the Eu
ropean situation. From one end of
the country to the other the people
very generally. It seems, have returned
to a discussion of the part the United
States should he taking In the affairs
of the world. The .'ederal administra
tion has taken up the subject anew
with more seal than It haa displayed
In connection with the consideration
of foreign affair since the anna con
(Organizations of various kinds
throughout the land, and particularly
church organizations, are giving ex
pression to views snd are communi
cating these expressions to the Presi
dent and the secretary of state. In a
noteworthy set of resolutions the
American Hankers' association says :
"We believe that the time has come
for the government of our country to
formulate the principles on which It
will be able to co-operate with other
nations to bring about the needed re
habilitation of European countries and
peace In the world."
The Judgment of 12,000 American
banker would naturally receive care
ful consideration ut the handa of any
federal administration. Several mil
lion church adherents cannot be, Ig
nored. The men who make up the
roster of the leading professions com
mand attention. And so it la not
strange that the Harding administra
tion is giving the situation intensive
study nnd Is showing a distinct Incli
nation to "do something."
Our Nsar East Policy.
A large and Jnlluentliil group of
citizens believe ti.- United States
should assist In keeping the Turk out
of Europe and use force for thia pur
pose, If necessary. But the govern
ment Is not going to follow that
course. Its policy with, resoect to
what may be called the Near Eastern
situation has been clearly defined.
The government wil continue to exert
moral Influence In favor of a peace
able settlement; It will go to any
lengths to extern relief to the needy.
Further It will not go unless it should
decide to participate In a conference
ou the future status of the Turk.
There may be significance in the fact
that up to this time Charles Evans
Hughes, secretary of stale, hss not In
dicated, In any public way at lesst.
whether the government will partlcl
pate In an international conference In
regard to the Turk should receive an
Invitation to be present. The State
department Is contenting Hsvlf with
tha statement that no Invitation to
attend such a conference bus yet been

change of thought does not produce
