Washington — (FP) — Acting

New Orleans, La.—(FP)—That the
farm plays second fiddle to the fac
tory in the southern states is brought
out m the figures published m the
Blue Book of Southern Progress, an
annual isued by the Manufacturers
Record. Numerically the farmers
greatly outnumber the factory em
ployes. but their output sells for much
j le&s.
Though there are but 1,619,798 fac
tory workers in the south, and twice
as many farmers—2,281,634—the fac
tory products of 1927 sold at $10,371,
793,000 as compared to only $5 672
121,000 realized from the farms. A
generation ago farm goods led. The
factory system was in knee pants
then. But year by year industry has
been polling ahead of agriculture.
From this it must not be concluded
that the southern factory workers are
so much better off than the farmers.
Only a small fraction of that $10,371,
793,000 goes to the workers in wages.
The rest goes for raw material, pow
er, other productive charges, taxes,
j interest and profits.
Nearly one fifth of the south's in
dustrial workers—290,145—are in the
î cotton mills. Cotton manufacturing
; still leads in Dixie. But the south
has also a wide variety of industries,
such as rayon, tobacco, chemicals,
steel, aluminum, clay products, meat
packing, shoes, paper, flour, fertiliz
costs, elimina

competing capitalist
The average saving to the
co-operators was over 12% with
cases going over 30%. Among the
items are :

Former Milhston Banker Mins Five
y ear fight for Clearance of Prison
Bism arck, N. D.— L. J. ■
former Williston banker, has been
granted a ful1 P ardon b F the sta te
pardon board. He was convicted in
| 1924 of receiving deposits in an in
j solvent bank but was never brought
j to the penitentiary.
, Although the action of the pardon
board was unusual, in that full par
dons rarely are issued to men convict
ed of felonies and because of the fur
ther fact that Rodman never served
^y c f the four to 10-year term to
which he was sentenced by Judge
John C. Lowe in district court, mem
bers of the pardon board said they
felt there had been a miscarriage of
Justice in the Rodman case.
Petitions that Rodman be granted
a full pardon were presented to the
pa rdon board by a group of 25 Wil
liston business men, by city commis
sioners, the county commissioners, the
county prosecutor and the members of
the jury by which Rodman was con
No formal document was presented
on behalf of Judge Lowe but he was
represented to the board as favoring
a pardon.
Rodman was one of 19 Bankers of
Wüliams county who werelfidicted by
a Williams county grand jury follow
ing a succession of bank closings and
the only one of the 19 who wa> biot
to trial. Charges against the others
were not pressed.

One reason they do not is that the
source of their mformation is poUot
ed. The newspapers upon which they
aepend are slipping into chains.
iwerve years ago there was much
said about the 'kept press." By that
term it was meant that certain news
papers were maintained by certain in
terests as a roue kept a mistress. The
steel trust kept one, the lumber trust
another, the gram interests third and
the raüroads a rourth. But the ar
rangement was kept aark until the
new postal laws male the liason dif
ficu:t to conceal.
So a new arrangement was mace.
The interests bought the former mis
tress and owned her openly,
recent investigation of the Federal
Trade commission shows by the tes
timony that thirteen of the larger
daily newspapers of America were
owned by public utilities, out to buy
more. Other interests financed or
owned whole chains of newspapers.
The chain newspaper is not uncom
mon. There is one chain in South
Dakota; at least two in Wisconsin
and one was being arranged in Min
nesota when the Trade commission
caused a temporary timidity till the
storm would blow over. The same
interests that corrupted the school
text books, bribed coUege professors,
gave money to officials of women's
clubs went out to buy newspapers
wholesale with what? With the
money they had extorted from the
American people for light and power
and heat!
The newspapers being pretty well
organized^the next step was the
banks. There are 5,000 fewer banks
in the United States than there were
six years ago, but the survivors have
21 billion dollars more resources. The
first three months of this year saw
more than 100 bank mergers. This
ludes the big ones in St. Paul and
Minneapolis but does not include the
branch banks bought at Fargo, Val
ley City and Jamestown and at Aber
deen, S. D. Most of the closed banks
are the small ones in villages of less
than 1000 people. They were cleared
out first. But to speak of branch
banks is wrong. They are really boot
legged banks. Federal law forbids
branch banking except in states where
state banks are permitted branches,
Minnesota annd North Dakota forbid
branch banking. So the law
evaded by organizing a stock com
pany that controlled the purchased
banks, leaving them the empty shell
of a directorate to fool the law.
An impartial financial authority in
New York wmes: "Heretofore the
competition for banking business has
been keen. There has been no mono
poly of capital. When business was
declined by one institution there were
others that sought investments. The
merging of banks can have but one
final result: Concentration of cerdit
and of immense power over business
in hands of relatively few men at the
head of banking."
