to Cong-ness that men now in train

Topeka,-Kansas-—Although an un

Landon, defeated by Mr. Roosevelt
for the Pmidency in 1936, announc

plea to keep selectex and National
Guardsmen under arms beyond their
original year’s service. “I am oom

take the position that it is unsafe
to release from service these men

in jhe country’s oil supply. In an
‘flii'peal to 'l6 states on the Atlantic
Seaboard that depend on tankers
for their oil, the Department of the
Interior asks that they reduce con
sumptimi of gasoline by one-third
before next winter. At the same
time, Secretary Ickos informed pri
vate owners of tankers that the
Government would require 100 of
their ships as soon as they could be
diverted from their regular routes,
25 of them being needed at once
for speeding oil to Britain and Ice

lines could be rushed from the

intact by holding car output as near

Valley Farmer Creates Wheat Hybrid
He Claims Is Real “Mortgage Lifter”
On a small ranch near Finley<
may live a genius, who in six years
of tireless experimenting has very
nearly perfected an entirely differ
ent and unusual type of wheat that
he has christened “Moseley Mort
gage Lifter.” Hundreds of wheat
growers have inspected his coveted
plot and to the insistent questions
regarding the types he blended and
crossed he only smiles and states
that that is his secret, but he does
admit that he used six different
types.
With the fullest confidence in his
experiment, Moseley states that he
firmly believes that his wheat, will
haveashighaproteinmtasum
standard type. Last year he reported
a. 16 percent protein. His crop was
seeded on ground that up to the time
he 'begun his experiment, had been
irrigated, but he has never turned
