Hoover is hopeful an agree ment can be reached through the con ference to cut rates and wages simultaneously. The conference admittedly is enter ing its "critical period. Re ty on the map as a potato country. Jn our dry land seed potatoes, he said, .we have a big opportunity. Thee is a tremendous demand for them, and ' 1,500 cars could be sold in the sta.e tf j Texas alone. The demand is also large from Lusk, Wyo.

He assured the various groups of laborers to accept wage cuts. Organized labor in conferences held during the last week asserted capital has not shaken otf the '"war profiteer 's habit." i'rite cuts can be made without Teducing wages, labor holds. Hence, interest at the conference is centered on whether 3 rerominenda- men present thut the Burlington would always be ready to co-operate with Al liance in furthering the interests of the county. l.eo C. Stuhr, state secretary for agriculture, said that his department was not only interested in the develop ment of agriculture, but was charged He gave fg- roin.neiMn- ,-.u ,.ptrlli.lt nrv tion for wage cuts can be pushed ' through.

Additional reductions of wages of n!twii.l u-nrVova wilt mnVf A strike Uli UtHt v.nau certain, according to rail union heads! at Chicago. i The railroad union chiefs met here to consider the vote of their members favoring a walkout rather than ac- eepting the 12 per cent reduction in I wages made last July. The official I count of the ballot was completed Monday and was made to favor a strike bv a lartre majority. I According to one of the big four union leaders, the strike vote was not taken with the purpose of calling a walkout as a result of the reduction of last July, but to forestall and furth er cuts. The union heads believed if they had a vote of the men favor-1 ing a strike which could be flashed at any time, the railroad executives would go slow in asking any further decreases. Railroad executives of the country meeting in Chicago the latter part of this week are expected to decide to petition the railroad labor board for another wage reduction. At the time they will sugjest to the interstate commission nn adjournment down ward in freight rates. . "There are natives of Central Africa who can jump five feet into ihe air front a standing position," observes u contemporary. Of what use then would universities be in the dark continent? ures showing that Nebraska was t.'rir tecnth in acreage and production of spuds, and that its position has been growing better every year. This year, out of a total crop of 345 million bushels in ths United States, Nebras ka will produce 7 million bushels, over 4,000 carloads. He said , that compulsory inspection had accomplish ed a great deal, and told of the duties of the fifty inspectors under his de partment. Alliance last year shipped 300 loads of potatoes; this year i00 carloads will be shipped. Box Butte county leads the world in the production of seed potatoes, the secretary said. There is no other part of the country that can successfully compete with it. He spoke in favor of the production of certified seed, and offered the facilities of his department at any time it could be of use. W. H. Farley, National Cash Regist er .company lecturer, called attention to the fact that it is unwise for ur.y community to lay too great stress upon any one crop. The spud crop was important, he declared, but called attention to the fact that there wi s a big opportunity in other lines, annii'( which he named poultry and eggs, quoting figures to show the magnitude of this business, which, he said, vns largely handled by women and child ren and was only a side line. Thomas F. Neighbors of Bridgeport told ofthe activities of Commissioner George Carrell in his city. He said the Hemingford man was working for a road from Kimball to Scottsblutr to Bayard ami thence to Hemingford, thus defeating the North Star route, but that Bayard wasn't interested. That city, he said, is for the Bridgeport-Alliance road. CARRELL DOING BEST TO jr. MAKE THREATS GOOD (Continued from page 1) another route divert Alliance's cher ished tourist travel. Anyhow, here's the dope on the lat est plan to get even with the Alliance chamber of commerce. Teh exchange says: "County Commissioner George Car rell, of Box Butte county, was in Bay ard last week discussing a north and south road proposition with local busi ness men. j "The route for the proposed govern ment aid road, as planned by Mr. Car- J rell, is from Potter .through Redding ton and Bayard, north through Box Butte county following the Hashman road, which has, been partially im proved by government aid funds. While this road does not run through Scottsbluff of Alliance, Mr. Carrell ! claims that it runs through a large farming distinct and will give the 'farmers an improved highway for the purpose of marketing their produce. Those who have investigated the matter say that the Bayard-Reding-ton route is a practical one, as it fur nishes a substantial bed for a perman ent road, and some work has already been done on the road between these two places, which would provide a sat isfactory highway at a minimum cost. "Probably the activity in connection with this proposed highway is the out growth of a road meeting held at Hemingford a short time ago, when the business men of that place and those of Alliance met for the purpose of deciding upon a route for a state aid road through that county. From reports it was an especially stormy session, resulting in bo decision of the road question, and made wider breach between the county commissioners, the Hemingford business men and the Alliance men. "An Alliance speaker stated the po sition of that city as strongly favor ing a road that follows the railroad, as that seemed to them the most sat isfactory route, being in their opin- 1 : i . . 1 . ,1:,. . . 1 juu nit; miuiicmi unu muni, iiiicvt juuu through Alliance and Hemingford in to the northwest. The county commis sioners appear to prefer a road desig nated as the Hashman road, which runs several miles to the west of Al liance. The commissioners and the city of Alliance have been at logger heads for several months, when it was claimed that the commissioners prom ised to designate three routes as preferable- and leave it entirely to the state engineer to decide which route should be chosen, but failed to do so. This deadlock prevents state aid on, either of the highways, as the state department does not act until satisfac tory road has been decided upon."
