The Joke of the Season
One of the biggest jokes of the
year was that played on the railroads
of the country by the Interstate Com
merce Commission in its recent de
cision on their application for an in
crease in freight rates.
The carriers asked for a 15 per cent
boost in all rates on the theory that
they needed the money. They put
financiers, accountants and bankers
on the stand to prove their dire need.
They offered testimony by others to
show what might happen to railroad
securities if relief were not granted.
And over and through it all ran a
plea for help for those carriers who
were not financially strong. The
smaller and weaker railroads, the I.
C. C. was told, needed help badly.
The joke, curiously enough, came
when the federal body agreed with
this contention. At. the same time
that it denied the application for the
general increase in rates, the com
mission authorised the railroads to.j
levy surcharges on certain shipments
for a limited time. j
Advance news of thus leaked out;
and caused a boom in railroad shares
in the stock market, but when it be-,
came known that the I. C. C. hadj
attached a string to the offer, the
railroad financiers were not so jubi
lant.
The tripping cord was a require
ment that the railroads pool their
earnings from the surcharges and|
distribute them in such a way as tO|
help the weaker systems. The larger
railroads didn’t like it, and now they
are seeking to modify the proposal
somewhat so that it will rest more
easily on their stomachs.
The joke lies in the fact that they
pleaded so earnestly for the small
and poor lines that the I. C. C. be
lieved them—to the exclusion of oth
er evidence which the more power
ful railroads had offered in hope cl
benefiting themselves.
Four Billion Feet
Recommendation that the lumber
Industry reduce its stocks of finished
lumber by four and a half billion feet
during the coming year has been
made by the timber conservation
board, a body appointed by the fed
eral government to study the status
of the nation's forest industries.
Its job was to investigate and an
alyze all factors of lumber produc
tion, marketing and consumption in
the hope of both benefiting the in
dustry by giving it more information
about itself and of conserving the
forest resources of the nation.
Since the lumber industry ranks
high among the enterprises of the na
tion, the recommendations of the i
board are of interest to everyone.
Here they are:
“First—That as rapidly as pos
sible stocks in the hands of lum
ber manufacturers be reduced to
the extent necessary to reestab
lish a reasonable balance between
stocks and demand. For the in
dustry as a whole the reduction
of stocks during the next year
should be approximately four
and ’one-half billion feet.
“Second—That to the extent
to which financial and commu
nity exigencies will permit, lum
ber production by individual
manufacturers be limited to such
volume as will accomplish the
recommended reduction of stocks.
“Third—That consideration be
given to the need and to the
means of deferred financing
which will stimulate additional
prudent building, especially farm
business buildings and small
homes.
“Fourth—That the industry
consider the practicability cf con
solidated sales organizations
which offer sound prospects of
added economy and flexibility in
production and distribution; and,
especially in the Pacific north
west, tho economic advantages cf
regional consolidations of owner
ship and operation.
“Fifth—That the timber con
servation board make, or cause to
he made, further periodic sur
veys and reports on current and
prospective lumber supply and
demand, with suitable recom
mendations."
The reasons for the recommenda
tions are embodied in a report con
taining 22 pages of printed matter
land some 20 tables. They comprise
Dakota
a vast body of information which
should be valuable to the public gen
erally as well as to men in the lum
ber business.
For instance, on the second page
of the document given over to “sup
porting evidence" we find this:
“Farm communities normally
consume over one-third of the to
tal lumber cut or over one-half of
that used in building construc
tion. The present condition of
cash farm income by states is
shown in Table 20. The estimated
income for 1930-31 is 68% of the
last five-year average. The ra
tio of prices received for farm
products to prices paid for com
modities used in living and pro
duction on the farms is shown
in Table 19. The August, 1931,
ratio of 59 Is the lowest recorded
since 1910 and indicates a steady
decline since 1928. These tables
show no facts warranting the an
ticipation of substantial increase
in farm building during the bal
ance of this year or, in fact, dur
ing 1932, notwithstanding the
general need throughout the ag
ricultural areas for extensive
farm building.
“The substantial reductions in
costs of building materials have
as yet not been generally fol
lowed by comparable reductions
in other building costs. Until the
readjustment of other elements
of building and home ownership
costs shall have been more large
ly commensurate with the con
tinuing decline in building ma
terial prices, substantial general
increase in ordinary building is
not expected. The small dwel
ling field still offers the best po
tential lumber market in build
ing. Both farm and small home
construction generally, however,
await the development of more
economical and convenient fi
nancing and in many areas a
further adjustment of building
costs. Increased demand for
lumber for building purposes is
not expected during the first one
half of 1932.”
After perusing this report, the lum
ber men of the nation will be thor
oughly conversant with the fact that
they can expect little prosperity un
til the fanners of the nation again
are in position to come into the mar
ket and buy the things they need.
Lei Prisoners Help
Ordinarily, one does not expect
prisoners in a state penitentiary to
take an extensive part in reforesta
tion programs. Yet Pennsylvania’s
prisoners have just put through an
amazingly complete forestry project,
and the state has 84,000 new trees as
a result.
All over the nation people have
been planting trees to celebrate the
bicentennial of George Washington's
birth next year. More than eight
million trees have been planted, un
der the guidance of the Americau
Tree association; and the Pennsyl
vania convicts have had a big part
In it all.
Prisoners at the Western peniten
tiary have planted 30,000, many of
them along a state highway. Those
in the state's Eastern penitentiary
have planted 54,000 trees—and -the
work i§ still going on.
Here is a wise program for convict
activity that other states might prof
itably copy.

Enforcing Prohibition
(New York Times)
A summary of the Prohibition Bu
reau's first year under the jurisdic
tion of the Department of Justice
shows statistically the results of a
vigorous effort to enforce the law.
Agents of the bureau arrested 62,902
alleged violators of the Volstead act.
They seized 21,373 distilleries and
stills. They confiscated 38,158,431
gallons of beer, spirits, wine and
mash. They prosecuted 59,805 cases
in the courts and succeeded in ob
taining convictions in as many as
85.9 per cent of them.
Unfortunately for the unremitting
efforts of the bureau, these towering
figures do not mean that the Eight
eenth Amendment was any more
nearly enforced at the close of the
fiscal year than at any previous time
since its enactment. Year after year
the government has published fig
ures of this sort, without achieving
appreciable success in shutting down
the sources of illicit liquor. In the
eleven years since prohibition be
came the law of the land, the govern
ment has actually arrested no fewer
than 681,342 persons. It has seized
300,913 distilleries and stills. It has
confiscated 291,042,414 gallons of beer,
spirits, wine and mash. But it has
net prevented the country from be
ing flooded with inexpensive liquor.
As rapidly as one source of supply
of an illegal traffic has been closed,
a new source has welled up to take
its place.
The difficulty lies in the demon
strated fact that local sentiment in
many populous communities Is op
posed to strict enforcement. The
government was able to obtain con
victions in 85.9 per cent of the cases
which it prosecuted during the last
fiscal year. It owes this success, how
ever, to the fact that it obtains con
victions primarily by means of “bar
gain-day” arrangements, which per
mit violators of the law to escape
with nominal penalties. As the pres
ent report of the bureau shows, the
average fine imposed last year was
$154 and the average jail sentence a
few months. The principal pays the
fine. One of his agents goes to jail.
It is easily enough arranged, and
considerably less expensive than the
system of high license fees which pre
vailed in New York and other states
before the war.
A farm survey in eastern North Da
kota showed that approximately 25
per cent of the revenue from a flock
of sheep was from the sale of wool.
With ordinary prices for feed and
wool, the wool clip will about pay the
cost of maintaining the flock.
At the recent Bowman county fair
a total of 591 exhibits were shown by
4-H club members. These Included
200 head of livestock, 31 crops exhib
its, 292 displays of foods club work
and 68 exhibits of clothing.

NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY
CHAPTER IX
T7DDIE did not recover conscious*
ness sufficiently to tell his ver
sion of the story before be died.
There were hours of suspense, for
he was young and dying did .not
come easy to him, even with a frac
tured skull.
Bowen drew Dirk aside out of
Mary’s hearing and let his wrath
explode.
“I tell you I saw it! It was mur*
der—pure murder! Two feet fur
ther over, and they’d have got me,
too. By God, to get that guy I’d
turn this town upsido down!”
“Get away!”
“Clean. I tell you It was all care
fully calculated to the minute. Who*
ever it was took a big chance,
swingiug around under those L
pillars. Just as he turned the cor
ner be flooded the carburetor and
the number-plate was hidden by
smoke.”
“But why should anyone want to
kill the boy?”
Bowen shrugged. “I’ve got an
Idea he knows something about this
Jupiter killing.”
Ruyther looked at blm sharply.*
“Ah, the kid didn’t do It. I don’t
mean that,” the reporter answered.
“I’ll bet my hat this was a profes
sional job. Somebody did the Jupi
ter job and bung It on Eddie. And
when be went to tell, they got him.
That's how I figure it”
Dirk turned away, savage with
regret. If he’d been punctual, Ed
die might have been living yet He
was convinced the thing was an
accident Newspapermen lived with
sensation until they saw It where
it did not exist. If be bad been
disposed to think that someone bad
wished Eddie's death, the antagon
ism he felt for the other man made
him veer to the opposite view.

tje could not have explained the
AA stiffness that came into his
manner when talking to the news
paperman but It was strongly root
ed and came from two causes. An
aversion to publicity was bred in
the conservative bones of the Ruy
ther clan. And there was some
thing more, something about the
way the absurd fellow’s gaze fol
lowed Mary that stirred all that
was proprietary in Dirk’s love.
Bowen pursued bis questioning,
too absorbed In speculation to no
tice the other’s stiffness. Already
a plan was forming in bis mind,
and If he found enough confirma
tion of his suspicions, well—he
might be on the trail of a bigger
story than be had thought.
“How did you get in touch with
Harkness, by the way—do you
mind telling me?” he asked thought
fully. “I confess be had me think
ing him guilty—until I saw this.
Too plain to miss.”
“Why,” said Dirk, hesitating,
“he called me up this morning. He
really said very little. Said he had
tried to reach Mary but the line
was busy and he couldn’t wait So
he called me Instead. I said, ’Where

tragedy—“but I was—detained.”
“How did he seem? Frightened?
Hurried? Anything queer about it
I mean?”
"We—ell,” Dirk considered, dis
liking the reversal of roles In

usually the Interrogator himself.
On the other hand, he knew that
a refractory witness does himself
no good, so he answered courteously
enough.
“I got the Impression he didn’t
want to be overheard, perhaps. I
couldn’t say there was anything
more than that in his manner.
Nothing very damning In that I
should say. Quite natural under
less peculiar circumstances than
these. I was just about to ask him
for an explanation when he seemed
to—become harried, suddenly. He
said *1 can’t talk now,’ and added
what sounded like—’the fly’s buzz

ed rather zilly. I wonder what be

remembering that he was talking
to a reporter. “Some kid stuff,
probably. Very likely meant noth

Bowen masked the Interest this
information had for him. “Ob,
very likely. Funny, though—he’s
been talking about a fly in there.”
He nodded toward the door of the
hospital room.
The door of the hoy’s room opened
a crack, and a nurse beckoned.
“Mr. Ruyther? Please!” Dirk
pushed hurriedly Inside, where
there was the sound of hushed sob

shutting herself and Bowen out.
“He’s gone,” she said. Bowen said,

bolted.

No matter how important or big the

and had failed so dismally—were

indignation had passed—that Ed

not, as George Bowen of the Star,
alone among the metropolitan

At last even Bowen bowed to the

New York, Oct. 29—Although Max
Steuer and William Untermeyer oc
cupy the spotlight as Manhattan’s
most prominent legal lights, still the
legends and truths concerning a cer
tain William Fallon go on.
Just this morning a note came to
my desk announcing that the cinema
would use Fallon as a film story char
acter. And Gene Fowler has done a
biography titled, “The Great Mouth
piece.” ■'
Without having ever known or seen
Mons. Fallon, I think he would have
liked the notion of being perpetuated
in the movies. He appears to have
been a showman unto himself; a law
yer who was a consummate actor
with Broadway as his stage and its
people as his clients.
One of the favorite yarns concerns
his love for Gertrude Vanderbilt. She
showed no great inclination toward
returning his affection, so one day he
urged her to come to court to hear
him plead a case. Nicky Arnstein,
one-time spouse of Fannie Brice, was
on trial. And Fallon was making a
double plea; for his client and the
heart of a girl. He was successful in
both instances.
Then there’s the famous story of his
own trial. Bribery had been charged
and Fallon represented himself in one
married at once.
But Mary shook her head. "Wait,"
•he counseled. "You don’t want a
weeping bride. And I can’t forget
—Eddie—just yet.”
He had to be content. He was no
more successful in inducing her to
leave what Bowen’s somewhat lurid
newspaper persisted in calling the
"Murder Mansion,” and come to
stay at his mother’s house until the
wedding.
"I’ve promised Dr. Jordan to stay
until Bruce Jupiter comes home,”
she said.
Presently the daily "conferences”
with the detectives stopped, and one
day there were no stories in any of
the papers relating to the Jupiter
murder, except one small routine
item, headed "Jupiter Murder
Probe Lags, No New Developments
Expected, Says Kane.”
Mary knit her over this.
She resolved to go to see the in*
spector herself, and ask him what
it meant.
Up to this time the newspaper
stories had given the Impression
that the murderer was Just about
to be caught. "Solution of Jupiter
Murder Mystery Near,” said the
headlines , and "Kane Promises
Quick Justice for Killer of Multi*
Millionaire’s Wife.” This sudden
change of attitude amazed her.
Kane greeted her ns usual. He
was walking up and down, looking
out the window, now and then paus
ing to look at her expectantly. That
air of his puzzled her; it had from
the beginning. He sat down op
posite with an air of "Well, what
have you to tell me?”
She showed him the newspaper
article.
"Oh, sure,” he said. “We never
had a chance from the beginning.
Nothing much we can do but wait.”
"But you kept telling the news
papers that you were about to find
the murderer!” she reproached him.
Disappointment made her bold.
"Why did you say that, if you
didn’t think so?”
Kane struck the newspaper con
temptuously with the back of his
hand.
"Oh, you’ve got to give 'em some
thing to chew on,” he said. "Far
as I’m concerned, the case is closed.
We don’t know the whole story, but
we know—enough.”

INHALING BENZOL FUMES
DANGEROUS TO WORKER
Persons With Heart, Lung or Kidney Trouble Should
Avoid All Occupation With Benzol
By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN
Editor, Journal of the American
Medical Association
Benzene A? benzol is one of the
most important industrial poisons.
Formerly naphtha and benzene were
used in place of benzol. Benzol is
used largely as a solvent in extraction
work, as for extracting oils and greas
es. The largest commercial use, aside
from gasoline, is for manufacturing
rubber cement and other rubber arti
cles, brake linings, artificial leather,
lacquers and paint and varnish remov
ers.
Obviously in such work there is
great danger of inhaling benzol, and
there is plenty of evidence that the
Inhaling of fumes has poisonous ef
fects. There is destruction of the
blood cells and there is besides this an
action on the nervous system which
brings about muscular tremors, twitch
ings, exhaustion, paralysis, rapid pulse,
disturbances of the breathing and the
vision and a very low temperature.
Benzol affects women, of course, as
well as men, and an investigation in
New York state showed that out of
79 women exposed to benzol fumes, 32
per cent had already changes in the
of the most dramatic trials on record.
He was, of course, acquitted.
Back of all this was the story of a
lad who rose from the New York
streets to the status of a great actor
lawyer—a story that is repeated year
after year. Some become builders of
skyscrapers and some become govern
ors, statesmen and great bankers.
The sidewalks of New York appear
to spawn ever-fresh material for the

blood which indicated benzol poison
ing. Because of the great danger from
this preparation, the National Safety
Council has urged, wherever benzol is
used, that it be used in enclosure or
under conditions which would prevent
contact with the fumes by the worker.
It is also suggested that at least once
a month every worker in the Plant
where benzol is used be given a thor

ular reference to examination of the
blood.
No one who has the slightest sign

who has anemia, or any other disturb

benzol.
Because of the danger connected
with the use of benzol, great chemical
industrial manufacturers are already
hard at work trying to find a sub
stitute to replace benzol as a commer

to low fertility of the eggs. Of the
young turkeys hatched, there was a
somewhat larger proportion saved
than in past years, due to the favor
able weather conditions. However,
comments from reporters indicate that
dogs, crows, coyotes and weasels
caused considerable destruction in tur
key flocks, and that Blackhead is
more prevalent.
Turkeys are not in as good condi
tion as they were at this time last
year, due to feed shortage in a con
siderable section of the state. Com
ments indicate, however, that grass
hpppers have furnished a valuable
feed supply in many localities. Of the
marketable birds, 47 per cent will be
ready for the Thanksgiving market
compared with 49 per cent last fall;
39 per cent for the Christmas market
compared with 37 per cent in 1930;
and 14 per cent for later marketings,
the same as last year.
