PRESIDENT HARDING, In a
letter addressed to Secretary [
of Agriculture Wallace, to be t
read at a Republican meeting,
} said: "Agricultural production Is
very nearly restored, taking the
world as a whole; but agricul
tural prices are so low that it is
apparent to all of us that the
i farmer is not being compen.
sated." Asserting that the ad
ministration has done all in its
power to restore the balance be
tween prices and costs of pro.
duction, he said the trend is
'strongly toward better condi.
tions for the farmer."
Do you and the farmers of

S E'AL recent victories by the
Red army in eastern Siberia over
the White lIussians have caused a W
great deal of apprehension in that re
zion. The Reds are advancing on
Vladivostok with the evident intention 8
uf occupying it as soon as the Japanese
evacuate the city. More serious is the 0
threat of the Reds against the Chinese ft
Eastern railway, toward which other ri
columns of the soviet army are mov- t
ing. Gen. Chang Tso Lin, the Manchu- w
rian military leader, is prepared to re
sist the Reds and, if necessary, will m
make an alliance with the White Rus- W

demanded that China cease aiding the it
