In my efforts to contra"', 'his new hobo I found an entirely dif ftlent attitude among those “headin' vest.” "We’re bound to fina something west of Chicago,’ th2y :>ay ns they swing up into the empty box cars to be found in every Drain. “Let's keep mov ing." Whereas, east of Chicago, I found a relative hostility among railroad de tectives against .those seeking to travel fiyaj cogipptmfty to coknmilnity | in their nsffcleto hunt for work, m the j west a far different s't.atlon exists, t “Let the BSeti Ride’’ With the exception of twe road-, the .o-restdenfcs of the wes etn railroads have issued orders to “let the men ride, so long as they stay off the pas wnger trains.” Further precautions, resigned to protect inexperienc cu wayfarers, are take i ir. the addl tiou efvegnqity box cars to even the fast manifest, or merchandise, freight tiains. And because of this sympathy with cause the attitude of the men traveling west of Chicago struck me as being considerably better than in the cast. One night I dropped off a Northern Pacific freight train wu Stapes Minn. I soon found the hobo camp—the jungle*. The group sit'.lnr arounJ the campfire must have contained 20 i men t A huge can of mulligatawny hung from a tripod over the fire. Supper A cheery voice haled me: “Come on. buddy, supper’ll be ready in a minute” There were trwo seamen—let’s call ’.hem Green and Brawn —In the crowd. One was a chief enginec*! the other was the engfneer’s first mate. “'You know,?’ Green said, leaning far back and gazing at the heavens. I’m learning things all the time. Brown ‘and I shipped out of ’Frisco for Ger many. We were paid off in New YYork. but we couldn’t ship out of New YoYrk so we’re headttg back to the west ooast for a berth. "But we’re not so bad off on this aide of the big pond aa some of us j like to Chink. Tou ought to se some of the things going on across.” Keeping Hunan Straight Th« conversation ran along tide Hne , tar some little time ualft not of a HENhWSOW, (H.C.,) DART MBPATGH THURSDAY, OCTOBER «, ISM clear sky. Green remarked. i “There are seven stars in the heav ens which never move. Astronomers 1 have tried for years to discover why that is true, when every other star, 1 and the moon and sun ar» mobile. Thoße seven stars are the ones that keep seamen straight when they are out on the pond.” Whereupon, those sitting around the jungles delved Into the subject of asfjronomy with a vigor that belied their surroundings. T was prompted „to believe for a moment that I was in a camp of scientists waiting for some great solar event. The next day I rode into Fargo, N. Dakota., and there boarded a mixed train consisted of eight freight cars. & baggage car and one passenger coach. Not fewer than 75 men were on the freight section; two men were paying passengers were in the coach. The Courage of the Farmer Among these men I found many harvest hands bound for the wheat fields. It was inevitable that the sub ect of wages should come up for dis cussion—and with it the farm board, j A man named Bronson spoke up. I He said that he had formerly' worked | in the Chamber of Commerce in Min neapolis. The Chamber, by the way, is not a commercial organization as in most communities but is the grain trading pit. “If everyone in this nai.on had th* ! courage of the farmers the United I States would never have a depression" Bronson said. "No matter wha hap pens to fihem, if they hava e crop fail ure one year and they los3 nearly everything they have, they come right back the next year and try' *' "Don't think for a moment,” an other man spoke up—l didn't get his name but I did hear him say that he was a salesman by profession—"that this country is whipped. We're sing-* ing the blues now-, byi. ncie* Sfciii* is coming back:'. |m not licked, I and L have hundreds of friends who are doing just whut I’m doing to day because they’re not ready to tjuit Keep On Looking "I don't know whether I’m going to find any work out this way or not." Bronson agreed, “but I'm going to keep on* looking until I find it. But until I do I’m riding the freights and doing my best to get along." From Minot, I turned south into South .Dakota. halMng momentarily- to visit in Pierre, the capital. It is not a large city, but it attracts wayfarers who desire to stop and rest—and “look fer something." In the “jungles" I found the men singing and talking. Two of the num ber were on. their way east after a stationary engineer, remarked: “Some day this country out here, where there now is nothing except de serts and wastland, will be a solid paridise. Irrigation will do it. It is true that in many sections water is hard to get, but the day ia coming when science will find a method to utilize the melting snows of the moun tains to provide both electric power and watre for farming, “Land fer Every Man” “The east to too crowded. Out here there’s land for every man. Persons won’t live on it all the time. But they will have Hj and when times like these come along—end they do, in cycles. They’ll have a place to go where they can raise enough to live on decentiy and not worry until they are called back to their Jobs in the cities." But it was in the “jungles" jus* out side the Burlington yards at La Cross. ■Wha.. that I received my greatest shock of the whole trip. A group of grizzled men. all of whom were much the worse for wear after traveling seven* hours on a dirty freight train were discussing political sconagay. I One of them said. In I —that would have been moUre in place in some staid old club for professional genuises: “Some day the people of this coun try will learn that our present form of government has been outgrown. It was all right when the nited State* consisted chiefly of states etet of the Mississippi river. But our national government now is big business and should be run on big business princi ples. “Constitution Will Be Revised" "The constitution will be revised by the people to provide for popular election of a president and vice pres ident and a board of directors, each director to have supervision of seine especial department. Congress will be eliminated as being an unneces sary expense "The board of directors will be elected and will replace the present cabinet. They will meet in session periodicaly to handle the nation's af fairs. When they find that some link in the business Is weaker than others they will concentrate on that weak link until it has been strengthened sufficiently to make the whole strong, just as the board of directors of a railroad or a steel corporation or a department store company docs. "Then and then only', will taxes be reduced to the point wheie every man. can live as a free citizen."

With a very short com crop this season, the war on the rodents will have as its major objective the pre servation of as much of the corn as possible. Reports how that annually thousands of bushels of com produced in North Carolina are destroyed by rats. A. E. Oman, rodent control specia list attached to N. C. State'college by the biological survey x*f the nited States Department of Agriculture, will direct the extermination campaign, to be hunched November 17 for the eastern half of the State and Decem ber 10 for the western half. The ne*w canned bait prepared under the direction of the agriculture de partment will be used in the war on •tihe rodents, and Oman will seek to secure as wide distribution of the poi son as possible. County agents In 50 counties will take part in the campaign. The, agents will ask the farmers to place, the bait on their places to kill rats. ; Saptple poisonings will be made in various sectors and then the canned bait wifi be used extensively. Each half-can of the bait wiH slap 50 or more of -the vermin, Oman said, and there are thre of the half-pound cans of bait In each standard farm package. The bait Is Red Squill mixed In the ratio of one to with meat, fish and cereals. The material la relatively to domestic animals .but to .toxic to rodents. B] is slow acting, which meant that rats eating of It can leave the premises before dying and also that ail rats will gat a portion of It before the alarm breads, Oman said.

"W* Fes B**t World “Serious ”t f want to start the practice of cleaning up the rat population of thl sstate each fall at the beginning of the sorage season. “It will cost about the priet* of one bushel of com to buy a package of bait, and the results will have many barrels of corn. Every farmer who wants to have a part i n ridding his premises of destructive rodents should get in touch with ihis county farm agent and seek to have some of the bait placed around his premises dur ing the campaign. ” EXTENSION BUREAU IN GREATER DEMAND RY J.

State College told his regular month ly conference of specialists and ad ministrative workers this week that the demands for help from county and ■State workers have been greater dur ing the past season than at any time in the history of the service. Emergency economic conditions have made work In farm management and marketing of leading importance in the extension program, though the emergency calls due to drought, the unusual winter of 1931-32, relief work, and the seed and fertilizer loans re quired a great deal of the extension workers’ time, he said. Ah was the case last year, one of the most Important activities has been in producing the home living on the farm and conserving home produced feed for winter. The home garden, poultry flock, egg and mGx and meat supply have necessarily been maintained on a larger percentage of farms than heretofore and these undertakings have flooded extension workers w;:t problems vital to the success of !t, t enterprises.
