R. Good o( Idaho, do more for the relief of American farmers, and es;>ec>ally the wheat growers. »Kin any other bill before congress. So thoroughly foes Senator Gooding believe in the McNary-Haugen bill that he not only has been opposing the Norbcck versification" bill, but has announced toxthe senate that he Kis abandoned his own wheat stabilization bill re garding the latter as less effective than the McN'ary bill. Senator Gooding Vis his wheat stabilization bill on the senate calendar, but will not ask for ts consideration unless it should de velop that the McNary-Haugcn bill in "K di cannot pass. In opposing the N'orbeck bill Sena tor Gooding Kis been actuated by the 1'elief that if this hill should become a law many in congress might contend that she bill did all that was necessary for agriculture, and might sidetrack But he the McNary-Haugen bill, further opposes the Norbcck hill on the ground that it would bring relief to only a small group of farmer* in Wisconsin and Minnesota, and would actually work harm in the stock-grow of the west which also mg states iave been large wheat producer*. Speaking in the senate on fartr lief legislation, Senator Gooding re cently voiced Ihe opinion that the Me N.ary-Hangcn bill will pass, when it paases," he said, "it will very generally relieve the condition of agriculture, not only in all parts of the country, for it covers all lines of agriculture that arc depressed .at this time. re "And 'The pending bill." (Norbcck bill) he added, "if it shall become a law. rill relieve only a few people in the northwest. It will not reach the gen Agricnlture is snffer cr.al condition, If wc exert our ing in every state, efforts towards something That would give general relief to agriculture, would be doing a wise thing, not believe this bill will help to any great extent, and if it docs help, it only help by increasing the num ber of cattle on the farms in the north west. when there is already an over production of cattle in this coun,ry. know of no industry in such de plorable condition .as the cattle in we I do r.an dustry today. "I introduced ,a bill for the stabili zation of the price of wheat," tinned Senator Gooding, hut 1 am not going to urge that me.asure. be cause I know that the McN'ary bill will go further than my bill in bring in the prices I do not con ing about an increase agricultural products, think I would be true to agricu'turc myself if I did not take the best hill I could get and help pass it. That the reason 1 am against the Norbcck bill and that is the reason bill and shall not I am against my own ask for its consideration unless I find that the McN'ary bill cannot pass." As a parting shot at the Norbcck bill. Senator Gooding said: I say again that if wc ran get the McN'ary bill we will give him relief all thc way through, and permit him to do these things for himself. thc government should do is go into the business of loanmg _ measure of this kind. I think the last thing to money m a I voted for all these relief mca f.ar las furnishing seed concerned and I shall be glad sures as was do that again when an emer comes along: but l .am not to gency in favor of the government going business and developing an into industry that is already over de veloped MARRIED IN CALDWELL Robert l.incbangh and Miss Mar F.idemiller. both of Wilder, were garet married in Caldwell Wednesday morn ing .at the home of Mr. and Mrs. II.
