rnrul credits, reduction in the “growing
evil" of farm tenancy, and national

\V. Gerard, former ambassador to
Germany. Herbert Hoover. Major Gen.
Leonard Wood William G. McAdoo’s
reply already has been published.
Governor Bowden, Mr. Hoover and
General Wood each called attention to
speeches or primed articles, which,
they said, fully answered the question
naire.
"I liHii'vi* in bringing the farmer
nearer the consumer,” General Wood
wrote. *1111(1 in giving farmer organi
zations every right and privilege which
other lawful organizations enjoy. I
believe that we should spread the war
burden over a much longer period than
at present contemplated. I am very
doubtful concerning ownership of rail
roads. my doubts arising from our ex
perience during the war."
Senator Owen approved all the
planks of tla> farmers' platform except
that making the nominee for secretary
of agriculture acceptable to farmer or
ganizations.
"The nomination should be of such
character that would naturally approve
the nomination.” he added.
Mr. Gerard approved in part a plank
calling for payment of the war debt,
"‘chiefly through a highly graduated
income tax."
"I am in favor of a highly graduated
income tax," Mr. Gerard explained.
"Hut do not believe that the war debt
should be paid entirely by a few peo
ple in the community."
Senator Leu root submitted a detailed
reply as "a private citizen" reiterating
his public statement that he was not
a candidate. Governor Sproul of
Pennsylvania also denied that lie was
considering entering the race.
These answers and others received
will be sent to the membership of the
farm organizations for their informa
tion, it was stated.

"Even John 1>. will have to hand it
to Itirmingham. While the public was
favorably organizing "overall clubs," to
cut the cost of clothing, the dealers
suddenly jumped the price of overalls
from .$2.00 to $0.00 per pair.—Arka
deiphia 1 tally News. And. now, if the
federal department of justice wants to
lay the heavy hand of the law upon
the hack of real mean culprits, let
every contemptihle scoundrel that has
suddenly raised tin* price on overalls
lie landed in jail. The tlunnel-mouthed
anarchist, the despisahle wretch for
whom all true Americans have a su
preme contempt, is not one whit
meaner, has no blacker heart than a
u;a nwlio will deliberately try to break
down an effort of the people to call a
halt in the mad stampede of prices in
clothing. Those who suddenly raise
the price of overalls are "profiteers.”
and no man has yet been able to say
just how low down, in the scale of
human depravity, a fellow has to go
to he all that the word "proiiteer"
means. -Okoloua Messenger.

TO CUT OUT LUXURIES
Chicago, April 27.—The greedy profi
teers in men's clothing are reaping
their reward, but it means bankruptcy
if the “reward” continues along lines
set Unlay by residents of Rogers l’ark
and spreading rapidly over the city.
Tenants in Rogers Park, who have
put up a winning tight against the ra
pacious landlords, jumped into overalls
when the craze first appeared, and to
day they handed together and pledged
themselves to buy no more yvliite col
lars, no silk shirts or socks, no costly
linens.
Tin* movement in taking on formid
able proportions. An association lias
Iss'ii formed, all members of which
pledge themselves to wear overalls and
••heap shirts, army shoes and cheap
I socks, until present prices take a tum
ble. Inasmuch as Ungers Park can af
ford (lie best, regardless of the price,
the declaration of war upon profiteers
lias additional significance.
Haberdashers in the neighborhood
admit they are in for a hard heating.
"We can’t make expenses selling hick
ory shirts an doveralis. and that’s all
that goes out here now." said one deal
er whose line of silk shirts ranges from
$20 up.
An indoor golf game that lias liceu
invented includes a plush mat for a
