'SHU FILE GUP KOW Under Present Law, August 9tb Is Last Day Claims May ' Be Filed. Those who served in the World War an received disabilities' will lose their rights to file claims with the Federal Government o"n Aug, vth, 1022, which is the last day of the i extension granted under, the Sweet bill. For that reason, the American Legion ' ' and Kentucky Disabled Ex-Servlce Men's Board have arranged a campaign, com mencing June 30th and ending Ju ly 11th, during which time every disabled ex-service - man in Ken tucky will be given an opportunity 'to file his claim. It Is estimated that approximately forty percent of the men In Kentucky who are en titled to compensation have not yet filed claims, and It is of the utmost Importance that this In formation be brought to their atten tion. Many men who are disabled less than ten percent, and therefore, not entitled to compensation at the present time, have not filed claims, feeling that in case their disability should Increase, they can then file a claim. In many Instances, men who are only slightly disabled at this time will be totally disabled In years to come because of their ser vice injury. If these men do not file their claims now, they will have waived' their rights, hut if a man files bis claim now and is rated less than ten percent but later becomes disabled to a greater extent, he will have protected his rights and can be re-rated. - ' Brent G.

SENATOR CAPPER AHKS 8KO- RETARY WEE KM' RESIGNATION It will be long time before Sec retary of War Weeks and the ad ministration hear the last of - the Secretary's Cleveland, Ohio, speech, In which he said that "the legisla tive branch of our National Govern ment probably never has been at lower ebb than it Is today," and condemning the . "interference" of citizens in matters of legislation about their own affairs. Senator Capper (Rep., Kans.) in his newspaper calls Secretary Weeks a "mossback" and an "anachronism," and . suggests that the President call for his reslgna tion. Among other things, Sena' tor Capper says: "If a member of the ' President's cabinet holds the views Secretary Weeks says he holds, whether pri vate citizen (sic) or public official. he should resign Immediately, for he has shown himself so wholly out of sympathy with what he has sworn to maintain as an official that he Is in no frame of mind to uphold the government." And again: "The, recent progressive revival In the primaries has alarmed him and men like him who wish state and national governments to be wholly dominated by powerful In terests." Unconsciously, perhaps, Senator Capper was hitting as hard, at President Harding as he was at Secretary Weeks, for the President has expressed some of -the views given by Secretary Weeks, parti cularly his opinion of the Agricul tural bloc. According to the Pres ident's newspaper mouthpiece, which as often states Mr. Harding's opinions in advance as It reflects them, and In' both cases with great accuracy, Secretary Weeks "told the truth." Thus says the Washing ton Post: "One of the reasons why Con gress is under well-nigh universal criticism is because of the dema gogy ' and cowardice of Congress men, and the evil of the block sys tem, which seeks advantages for classes as against the whole com munity." The Post then labels and classi fies Senator Capper: "If they (the politicians) are demagogues they will attack such men as Secretary Weeks who Is courageous - enough to tell the truth." Republican Floor Mondell, who is about as reactionary as Secretary Weeks, but more adroit in conceal ing It in some matters, calls the Sepretry's speech "sophomoric." $126,()(M,(K0 IS VALUE OF CROP Topeka, June 26. The Kansas wheat crop will be worth f 128,000, 000, uecortlliig-to estimates of inde pendent crop authorities In Topeka. The estimates are made on the basis f.f the recent report of J. C. Molilcr. secretary of the state board of agri culture,, uud on pevalltng crop prices. Threshing returns from most counties have been favorable. It Is probable that the extreme weath er conditions will cause damage to the berry in some counties, but In the main the loss Is regarded as nominal. In most counties the heat wave arrived after the grain had fully ripened. It will cost the wheat growers $5,000,000 to harvest their crop, according to estimates. Hunkers assert thai the farmers have had no trouble in obtaining adequate funds for a , harvest purposes. In many communities the crop will be har vested promptly. All of the trunk line railroads have prepared to handle the grain promptly, and for a month there has been general move to create a reserve supply of cars. The har vest this- week will extend well In to the northern counties and In an other week will reach the extreme northern tier of counties. Judge John H. Crawford of the Industrial court is spending the week In Sixth district wheat coun ties. He is Investigating labor con ditions and expects to give particu lar attention to any I. W.
