studies how to save by elim

fifty dollars a month for

Corporate Idea Applied
To Farming
From the welter of dis
the death of the AAA, one
cussion jthat has followed
striking fact emerges: Ap
parently every farm pro
gram emanating from a re
sponsible source stresses the
j need of encouraging and
developing agricultural ma
| rketing cooperatives.
The Administration is
highly favorable to farm
cooperatives. When ex-
President Hoover spoke on
the farm problem a few
weeks ago at Lincoln, Ne
braska, he too pointed to
the importance of farm co
operatives.
The cooperative market
ing idea is entirely non-po
litical and non-partisan. It
is not the product of poli
tics—instead, it is the pro
duct of natural economic
forces. It represents an in
evitable evolutionary pro
cess. It has proven its sound
ness through years of de
pression. and the movement

what we
think
(By Frank Dixon)
When you stop to think of
it considering the fact that
he doesn’t own an airplane
or a machine gun or a can
non this fellow Selassie is
putting up a whale of a
scrap.
* * *
My sons-in-law have all
joined the Townsend club.
I can’t figure it out. None of
them is over thirty years old
and I am sixty-eight.
* * *
I have never thought I
could beat a slot machine.
, As a means of getting rid of
my money I have stuck to
farming. It is just as effec
tive as a slot machine and
much faster.
* * *
V
I note the Democrats held
a number of Jackson Day
banquets at which the
charge was SSO a plate.
* * *
The Democrats have come
a good ways in the past fif
ty years. Fifty years ago
the only people who could
pay SSO a plate for a ban
quet were the representa
tives of big business and the
officers of the eastern life
insurance companies.
♦ * *
Considering the fact that
the above mentioned ban
quet was pulled in the midst
of the greatest depression
the world has ever seen it
appeals to 'me as the out
standing achievement of the
party for all time.
* * *
I’ve read several of the
columns written by the Pre
sident’s wife, Mrs. Eleanor
Roosevelt, under the title
“My Day.”
♦ * *
I never realized the life
| of a President’s wife was as
dull as it seems that it is. I
think I could write a more
interesting column under the
head of “My Nights.”
* * *
I note the fashion experts
state that the correct color
for men’s suits the coming
j spring will be elephants
breath blue. We are sorry
we already have our outfit.
It is blue serge with a mir
ror effect.
* * *
The most unreliable thing
that I know about is a string
of Christmas lights.
* * *
A local man told me re
cently that since the depres
sion had curtailed the fam
ily income the family car
had reached a stage of de
creptitude that the young
son and daughter had quit
asking for it.
* * *
I note an authority on eti
quette has ruled that one
may eat potato chips with
the fingers. As far as I am
concerned larger induce
ments than this are going to
have to be offered before I
will class potato chips as
something to be eaten at all.

GOLD NUGGET
To M. A. Moody
‘Helping to Build Coolidge’
To correct an error in
his advertisement on the
part ot the printer, in
this week's issue of the
Examiner; we left out the
word “natural.” The ad
should read “Coolidge is
Natural Gas Minded.”
Mistakinglyi we stat/ed
“Coolidge Is Gas Minded.”
Well, before some good
citizen that is rather con
servative should come in
and cause the printer to
do the jack rabbit twifct
down some of these cot
ton rows, methinks it best
to ir~ke the correction,
and, if necessary, to give
away several gold nug
gets.
After all, if it was not
tor the modernization in
the uses of “Natural Gas”
and electricity we would
continue to live in the
stony age of candlesticks
and wood.
