O’NEAL TO FIGHT FARM FUNDS CUT American Farm Bureau Fed eration Head Promises To Take Battle To Country CHICAGO, Jan. 31.—(ST—Edward V. O’Neal, president of the Amerl ;an Farm Bureau Federation, prom sed tonight "to take the fight to he country’’ if the house economy sloe should "sabotage” farm recov iry by reductions in the agriculture iepartment’s appropriation bill. In a statement O’Neal, who was me of the leaders in formulating Lhe farm program, condemned the bouse appropriations committee, which recommended a 61 per cent cut In next year's agriculture de partment supply bill as compared with funds supplied for the current year. "It apears,” O’Neal said, "that the committee is determined to econo mize at the expense of agriculture. Any reduction in farm income will be multiplied many foiji in reduced national income, more unemploy ment, reduced federal tax returns ind lowered national morale.” The statement said that congress in formulating farm legislation in recent years, "in effect promised farmers parity prices, but never made sufficient appropriations to make parity a reality.” “Congress should increase the farm appropriation to a figure that would make the farm program fully effective, rather than cutting off the prosperity stream at the source, as it is doing now. The recovery that has been made has been largely due to improvement in farm buying power after the dark days of 1933. "Farm income is still nearly two Dimons short or parity, which is simply fair exchange value, and economic balance can never be re stored until farmers are able to trade their products on a fair basis for goods and services produced by other groups. Farmers are produc ing abundantly, and selling food and fiber at what amounts to a 27 per cent discount.” WILL RATION PAPER LONDON, Jan. 31.—<A“>—The sup ply ministry announced today that paper would be rationed shortly.

I’ll have to run downtown tomorrow and buy a dress,, hat - and shoes to match.” Movie Revues ; “THE REAL GLORY” IS FEATURED AT CAROLINA Lovely dark-tressed Andrea Leeds and six-foot he-man Gary Cooper provide the romantic interest in Samuel Goldwyn’s “The Real Glory,” the new adventure drama about the heroic exploits of the Philippine Scouts, which is sched uled for its initial showing at the Carolina theatre today when it be gins a three days’ run. Directed by Henry Hathaway, this new pro duction features in its supporting cast such top-notch players as David Niven, Broderick Crawford, Reginald Owen, Kay Johnson, Vla dimir Sokoloff, Russell Hicks and Henry Kolker. The story of “The Real Glory’’ was transferred to the screen from a script written by Jo Swerling and dramatizes the bold era of ad venture, drama and turmoil which reigned in the Philippines follow ing the end of the Spanish-Ameri can war, when the American army was evacuated and the islands were overrun by religious terrorists and insurrectionists. It details the formation of the Philippine Con stabulary, officered by Americans, who undertook to quell the rebel lions and establish peace and or flop The battle Samuel Goldwy.) staged for “The Real Glory” lasted six weeks and the combatants cov ered several hundred miles. The first shot was fired on the Kern river north of Kernville by Regi nald Owen. The last shot was fired on the studio back lot by Gary Cooper. In between there was con siderable shooting out Point Mugu way near the town of Ventura. The famous Rubinoff and his or chestra headB the short program. There is also the usual News reel. “BAD LITTLE ANGEL” IS FEATURED AT THE ROYAL The screen’s newest juvenile team, Virginia Weidler and Gene Reynolds, present remarkable per formances in “Bad Little Angel," a poignant drama of childhood now showing at the Royal theatre. Di rected by William Thiele, it tells the story of a little orphanage waif whose faith and courage alters the lives of a group of characters in a quaint New Jersey village in the early Nineties. Adapted from a Margaret Turnbull novel, “Bad Lit tle Angel” has the thrill of a res cue from a factory fire, great dramatic moments in the orphan age sequence, and the child's plea to save the position of her foster father. Hollywood hails the picture as the most gripping child story since “Boys Town.” Convincing performances are given by Lois Wilson and Ian Hunter as the waif’s foster parents, Henry Hull as the town drunkard whom the child reforms, Guy Kibbee as the crusty millionaire who capitulates eventually to the child’s charm, Elizabeth Patterson and Reginald Owen. An exceptionally good short pro gram accompanies the feature. It includes a special novelty entitled 'Seablscuit,” a Phantasy, "A Millionaire Hobo,” and a sport eel ‘‘Death Valley Thrills.” ‘CHICKEN WAGON FAMILY” IS FEATURED AT BIJOU Lock up all your cares in the :loset, shut the front door and put he key under the mat, and head :or the Bijou theatre on Front street, where Jane Withers in ‘Chicken Wagon Family” is play :ng today. It’s a heart-warming story that stirred the wanderlust in all who were in that first-night audience. There was excitement and romance around every bend of the road tak en by the family and laughter enough to keep moviegoers happy tor a long time. ’ Jane and that carefree Carrillo fellow are partners again (as they were in "Arizona l/ildcat”). You never saw such a pair! They’ll trade you for anything you’ve got —skin you, maybe—but throw in a lot of fun to boot. With Leo Car rillo the cast also features Mar jorie Weaver, Spring Byington (mother of the famed Jones fam ily) and Kane Richmond. The program also includes a musical comedy, “A Swing Opera," the latest Paramount News and a Pictorial. Financier Claims America Has Upper Hand With Japs SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31.—CD —A British financier from Shang hai said today that America "is playing poker in Japan with five deuces,” and that "you’ve got Japan absolutely cold, and all the business people in Japan know it-” The financier, Sir Victor Sassoon, arrived on the lin^r President Cool idge from the Orient. In Japan, he said, “the business people and diplomats want peace in China, and friendliness with the United States. They say it is 'our only hope.’ "But there are other forces to be reckoned with. Thj navy favors peace, but figures if it can run a bluff and get something for nothing, why not try it. However, the navy is not looking for trouble. “It is the army, sitting in the middle of Manchuria, that wants to fight America, while the navy which would have to do the fighting, does not.” SURVIVORS RESCUED LONDON, Jan. 31.—(JP)—T h e Netherlands motorship Rian landed at Flushing, Holland, today with IS survivors from the 1,178-ton British steamer Highwave which was bomb ed off the British coast.
