ISSUES PROCLAMATION FOR THE
FIFTEENTH DECENNIAL CENSUS OF U.S.
Whereas, by the Act of Con-,
gress approved June 18, 1929, the
Fifteenth Decennial Census of the
United States is to be taken be
ginning on the second day of
April, nineteen hundred and thirty;
and
Whereas, a correct enumeration
of the population every ten years
is required by the constitution of
the United States for the purpose
I of determining the representation
jof the several states in the House
of Representatives; and
Whereas, it is of the utmost im
1 portance to the interests of all the
! people of the United States that
this census should be a complete
and accurate report of the popu
lation and resources of the nation;
Now. Therefore, I, Herbert
Hoover, president of the United
States of America, do hereby de
clare and make known that, under
the law aforesaid, it is the duty of
every person to answer all ques
tions on the census schedules ap
plying to him and the family to
which he belongs, and to the farm
occupied by him or his family, and
all other census schedules
, quired by law, and that any per
son refusing to do so is subject
to penalty.
The sole purpose of the census
is to secure general statistical in
formation regarding the r^oula
tion and resources of the country,
and replies are required from in
dividuals only to permit the
pilation of such general statistics.
No person can be harmed in any
way by furnishing the information
required. The census has nothing
to do with taxation, with military
or jury service, with the compul
sion of school attendance, with
the regulation of immigration
with the enforcement of any na
tional, state or local law or ordi
nance. There need be no fear that
any disclosure will be made
garding any individual person
his affairs. For the due protection
as re-
com
or
re
or
of the rights and interests of the
1 persons furnishing information
! ery employee of the census bureau
is prohibited, under heavy penalty,
from disclosing any information
I which may thus come to his know
ledge.
I therefore earnestly urge upon
! all persons to answer promptly,
I completely and accurately all in
quiries addressed to them by the
enumerators or other employees of
the census bureau and thereby to
contribute their share toward ma
king this great and necessary pug
lie undertaking a success.
In Witness Whereof, I have
hereunto set my hand and caused
to be affixed the great seal of the
United States
Done at the City of Washington

DAIRYMEN URGE
FREEDOM FOR
PHILIPPINES
Chicago—FP—The price of oleo
margarine is ao low that the or
gamzed creamery butter makers
of the Lmted States want freedom
for the Philippines. Let the Am
encan Association of Creamery
Butter Manufacturers explain.
Manager W. F. Jensen writes:
"When oleomargarine sells ai
retail for 11c a pound, made pos
sible by reason of cocoanut fats
coming from the Philippine Is
lands duty free, it seems
sary that something be done
soon as possile to protect the
American farmer
competition of foreign
fats. Apparently duty
neces
as
against the
vegetable
cannot be
imposed upon any product of the
Philippine Island so long as the
islands remain one of our posses
sions.
"Therefore from the standpoint
of the future prosperity in the
dairy industry it would seem that
we should support a movement to
give to the Philippine islands
their independence."

Washington, March 8.—Repre-|

garded as the possible selection of
his party to oppose Senator Walsh,
democrat, for the latter's seat in
the senate, Monday announced his
candidacy for re-election to

Representative Leavitt made
this statement Monday:
"With a meeting of the Mon

to be called soon. I feel that I
owe it to my party to clear the
situation. So far as I am con
cerned I am appreciative of the
fact that many, have suggested
that I be a candidate before that

grain
leading
George Gano, ^ IwMwM
middleman in the wheat belt, has
sent the following wire to the
white house:
"The Farmers National Corp.
(subsidiary of the farm board)
has issued order buy wheat at
stabilized price only from coop
erative elevators. Personally I
have 50 good country elecators
I buy
a
"^7 ESS 'Ttoy
wheat direct from farmers and
h ave f or 30 years. This order
closes every elevator I have, as
the stabilized price is 12 to 15c
above the open market in which
I am forced to sell my grain if
this order stands.
"This is simply confiscation
of a business built up in a life
time.
"You are appropriating money
to this organization for which
I contribute a good share in
taxes. Not more than half of
the farmers in this territory be
long to the cooperatives.
"This is the most vicious or
der ever issued by an agency of
the U. S. government and should
be rescinded at once. Am only
too glad to assist in stabilizing
wheat prices. I have no axe to
grind with the Farmers Nation
al Corp. All I ask is fair play
and an even break. This not
only applies to me but to every
independent grain dealer in this
section.
"Wish you would confer with
Mr. Legge and explain matters."
The effort of the exploiting,
parasitic middle men to stabilize
wheat prices ought to make Hoo
ver laugh. The grain gamblers
are now charged to be conspiring
together to bring the price of
wheat down so low that the farm
board's cooperative plan will be
wrecked and the high old times of
bleeding the farmer to the limit!
will return for the middlemen.
Chairman Legge of the farm
board, former head of the har
vester trust, appears more inter
ested in letting the farmers have
enough income to meet their notes
on harvesting machinery than in
helping the whining middlemen to
continue their age-old racket.

two men but displacing a dozen
laborers, is an old story by now;
corn is the latest grain to come
under power methods. Instead of
hand labor, breaking off the ears,
shucking them and then filling
wagon box, the tractor-drawn corn
combine will cut six to eight rows
of corn, husk and shell it, pouring
the grain into a truck alongside,
and shredding the stalks, scatter
them over the field as fertilizer.
Thus the combelt of Iowa and Ne
see transformation
already witnessed by the wheat
belt.
This mechanization brings two
all-important changes, says Kar
ger. One is the larger farm; the
other the castoff farmers. A fam
ily can no Longer thrive on an
80-acre farm; now 300 to 400 acres
can be cared for with no more
man power than 80 acres 10 years
ago. Not only do the farming re
gions become depopulated; the
towns and small cities of the rural
areas feel the pinch of less com
modities needed, fewer customers,
less trade territory.
Enter too the farm corporation,
selling stock much as do the new
mdustrial companies floated on
Wall St. Stock salesmen point
out, in their talks to prospects,
that such companies have paid 12
to 12^% dividends. One such
company has issued 300,000 shares
and hopes to control 150,000 acres
of land, to be operated under sup
ermtendents, overseers and labor
ers, with elevators, tractors and
combines. Asserting that it can
oroduce wheat at $4.64 an acre
while the individual farmer spends
$10.58, it holds out large prom
ises of profits. Mortgage compa
nies, banks and investors possess
ing lands under foreclosure are
exchanging the realty for the com
pany's stock, preferring to take a
chance at profit to waiting on a
real estate price revival. Another
company says it has 60,000 acres
in its control; a third announces
100,000 acres to be managed by a
former college wheat expert. One
company says it raised wheat last
year at 61c a bushel, the present
p râe 51.06.
The future is not sketched by
Harger, but he leaves little doubt
as to its probable appearance:

the radical difference lies in own

are only four women in their
community and they are all mar
ried. In fun they make out an or

his son's name to those of the
cowpunchers and mails it. Prin

Howard Nelson plays the part
of an oyer-sophisticated son of
Mr. Hamilton. He has traveled
abroad and is just a little too good
for his associates. He is taught
some manners in Nevada, howev-,

him loose in the corral. June, his
sister, a little manager, is played
by Elvira Mensing.
The humorous situations into
which these young men are put
makes them wish for solitude
again, but when it is proposed that
the Brides return to work, the
men are afraid it will be too dead.
In an interview with one of the
sponsors of the play, she said:
"We are giving this rather

all our patrons that an evening of
good clean fun is in store for ev

"School plays have not been
well attended this year as foremr

is perhaps the chief reason for
this. When the Temple is crowd

on the stage. It is a little dis

The barber shop war is at-
tracting a k>t of attention.
Well we have .a barber law
providing for sanitation for
the protection of the public.
Why should it not be enforc-
ed? What are these laws for?
And we never did take much
stock in scab prices or cut
rate joints anyhow. There is no
limit to cutting prices as the
farmers have found. However
maybe the old barbers used
wrong tactics: they should,
like Standard Oil, cut
until they put the new comers
out of business, and then raise
we
prices
again. People like the indi-
rect methods better. Lard Ol-
son's complimentary patron-
age could not have sustained
the new shop long.
RED SCARE
"red scare" was being promoted
to distract attention from unem
ployment.
Senator Wagner, democrat, New
York, who started the debate, as
serted that construction contract»
for last January as reported offi
cially by Commerce Secretary La
mont were $86,000,000 below those
of January, 1929, "despite the
president's business conferences."
Wheeler Called Wold
The "red scare'' discussion brot
from Senator Wheeler, democrat,
Montana, a demand that Vice
President Matthew Woll of the»
American Federation of Labor be
called before the lobby committee
and questioned about his reported
information of $1,260,000 being
sent by the soviet government in
Moscow to foment trouble here.
Wagner Demands Action
Wagner demanded the adminis
tration take action in the present
situation, which was termed "se
rious," and Wheeler pointed out
that Mr. Hoover was quick to act
when the Wall street stock break
came, asking congress for a $160,
000,000 tax reduction.
Wagner asked action
