V PAGE TWO 'News Review of may choose to thre group Current president Starts on His Han for Managed Currency and Commodity Price Raising Farmers Strike Under Way Move for Russian Recognition. By EDWARD W. PICKARD d P. , TN HIS radio address the Presldent told of the "relief that Is being given to those who are In danger of losing their farms or their homes," and later said : "I have been amazed by extraordinary degree of given to the government by the cotton farmers In the S o n t h, the wheat farmers of the West, the tobacco farmers of the Southeast, and Milo Reno I am confident that corn-hofarmers of the Middle the West will come through In the same magnificent fashion." There was, however, nothing In the speech that reassured the farmers who have embarked on a national agricultural strike. Milo Reno, president of the National Farmers Holiday association, declared the strike would continue despite Mr. Roosevelt's assurances of higher farm prices. " The President failed to even the g - mention cost of production," he pointed out "We're not going to top this battle until we get w' at we want and have demanded cost of production." Mr. Reno reported that the Continental Congress of Worker and Farmers and the Technocratic Federation of the World for Industrial Democracy had proffered their In the strike, and said that he was confident the farmers themselves would Join the nonsell-In- g movements In "great numbers." At that time the farm leaders In six states Iowa, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin. Oklahoma and Nebraska had officially proclaimed the strike, and picketing of the highways had begun In some localities. Here Is what Reno's association called for from the farmers: 1 Refusal to sell any grain, produce, live stock, milk, butter, eggs, etc., except for prices equal to the cost of production, but willingness on the other hand to exchange such products for whatever labor and the unemployed may have to tender. 2 Refusal to purchase groceries, merchandise, etc., except as necessary to sustenance and unobtainable otherwise. 3 Refusal to leave their homes, a tantamount defiance of mortgage foreclosures and eviction orders. 4 Refusal to meet capital payments on debts until prices reach production cost levels. 5 Refusal to pay taxes or Interest on debts out of money needed for food, clothing and other necessities. Meanwhile the embargo on wheat shipments out of the state of North Dakota, proclaimed by Gov. William Langer, went Into effect f AXIM MTVINOV. foreign of Russia, probably already Is on his way to Washington In response to the Invitation extend ed to President Kalinin by President Roosevelt to negotiations open I me rec- 'f lushing iu ,1 OR"ion of the ' Soviet government by the United States and to the adjustment of other matters at Issue between the two Adminisnations. M. Litvinov tration officials In Washington believe the conversations will take about two weeks and that before the end of the year the President and Litvinov will announce the resumption of normal relations between the two countries and the establishment of a large credit for the Soviet republic to make purchases In this country. Though In giving out the correspondence President Roosevelt said he was not committed to recognition of the Soviet government, it is said that preliminary soundings had satisfied him that Russia's desire for American recognition Is a concomitant to its desire to obtain credits for the purchase of American goods. The administration is prepared to Join In the development of reasonable credit facilities for the quick disposition of accumulated surpluses In cotton, meat products, copper and other raw materials. There are other problems that must first be solved, such as the czarist debts and the Communist propaganda, hut the administration believes these can be speedily cleared up. The English press hailed the acmove toward a cord as a great force for world peace, and said London could not do better than copy Washington. In Japan officials expressed pleasure over the news, though this may not have been entirely sincere. com-mlss- A ljm (. Russo-America- n p Thursday, November 2, 1933 NEPIII.

EDOUARD In France was overthrown by the chamber of deputies and he and his ministers resigned at once.

The Edouard vote was 329 to 241. Daladier Daladler's Really downfall was brought about by an outbreak of political and personal enmities that had been held In abeyance for a long time. In his final speech before the vote was taken Daladier spoke frankly of the danger the franc Is already facing from bear raids which' have drained many millions of dollars worth of gold from the coffers of the Bank of France.

"Government credit will be maintained and a sound currency will accompany a rise In the American commodity price level," he said; but he Insisted the price level must first be restored before anything like Inflation Is established. For the present, Mr. Roosevelt said. It was Important to tighten control over the dollar. He added: "As a further effective means to this end I am going to establish a government market for gold In the United States. Therefore, under the clearly defined authority of existing law, I am authorizing the Re construction Finance corporation to buy gold newly mined In the United States at prices to be determined from time to time after consultation with the secretary of the treasury and the President. Whenever necessary to the end In view we shall also buy or sell gold In the world market. "My aim In taking this step Is to establish and maintain continuous control. This Is a policy and not an expedient. It Is not to be used merely to offset a temporary fall In prices. We are thus continuing to move toward a managed currency. "Our dollar Is now altogether too greatly Influenced by the accidents of International trade, by the Internal policies of other nations and by political disturbance In other continents. Therefore, the United States must take firmly In Its own hands the control of the gold value f our dollar. This Is necessary In order to prevent dollar disturbances from swinging us away from our Ultimate goal, namely the continued recovery of our commodity prices." esse Jones, RFC chairman ; Un Dean Acheson of the treasury and Henry Morgenthau, Jr., representing Mr. Roosevelt, were Intrusted with the Job of fixing the price at which the RFC would buy newly mined gold, and the first day they fixed the price at $.il.3G an ounce. Agricultural staples and securities Immediately began to move to higher levels, as had been hoped. For the second day the price of gold was put at $31.54, and therefore securities and commodities dropped, to the dismay of tire theorists. The RFC "Washington pays for the gold with its own debentures. The President's monetary program is based on the plan of John Maynard Keynes, the British economist Orthodox bankers in Wall street were rather disconcerted by It. Some were skeptical as to the practicability of controlling the internal price level by changes In the gold value of the currency ; others thought the plan would give the government a powerful lever with to lift prices. swhich v If carried to Its logical conclusion, the program means the ultimate fixation of the value of the dollar with a diminished gold the resumption of free trade In gold, and of gold redemptions, doubtless on a bullion basis. f op'a choice of f t rir THE zKM I all I BEVERLY HILLS-W- ell know Is Just what I read in the papers. Walter Uppniaa has come back Into one of our local papers, after a summer's vacation, and we get a mighty fine slant on things from him. Mr Brisbane Is with us every morning and Is great as usual. How that fellow keeps It up, and the amount of subjects be covers Is more than I can even Imagine. When he Is In New York and getting the wires coming In, he really gets stuff ahead of the news. Now you know In last Sundays papers I saw Irvln Cobb with a Sunday syndicated article, and Lord I would give my best horse If I could write one half as good. Do you know that rascal Is just about the best writer we got In this country. He Is rich and lazy, but be Is sure funny, and he can do tricks with those words, and Rugs Bear, he Is Just a marvel. Lord the things that bird can compare something to! What do you call em slmliles. I cant even say It, much less think of one. but Lord 1 could go on by the hour singing the praizes of folks that write In the papers that 1 like to read. Then there Is on every newspaper some wonderful writers that never even get their names signed to anything, but thank the Lord the boss of the papers know who does It. It must be almost heart breaking for those splendid writers to see what some of us syndicate birds get away with. Course with O. O. Mclntlre Its different. O. O. would be a great writei even If his name wasent on his. Course O. O. on account of being raised down there on the Ohio River, around those steamboats with those Negroes he has copped a trait the Negroes have, he does love to use big words sometimes, but I dont believe he means It, cause he Is an awful nice fellow, and he wouldent harm a soul. I got me a dictionary one time, but goodness It dident last long. It was like looking In a telephone book. I never called up anybody in my life If I had to look up their number. Nobody Is worth looking through all those numbers for. and thats the way It was with my dictionary. I could write the article white I was trying to see what the word meant, and thats one good thing about language. there Is always a short word for It, Course the Greeks have a word for It, and the dictionary has a word for It, but I believe in using your own for it. The minute you put in a word that everybody dont know, you have Just muddled up that many readers. Run ning onto a word you cant read, or understand Is Just like a detour in the road. You cuss it and about a half dozen of em, and you will take different road the next time. I love words but I dont like strange ones. You dont understand them, and they dont understand you. Old words is like old friends, you know em the minute you see em. Then a lot of writers like to ring in a little French sentence every few paragraphs. They could make it a lot plainer to everybody by explaining in their first sentence that they went to Paris one Summer Instead of seeing what they should have of America. Then its the same with the English. There Is every once In awhile some English creeping into various writers articles. I tell you these foreign languages must be kept out of our way. Now Tor instance I know a few Mexican words. I cant spell em, in fact I dont believe they can, but I never try to fog the Issue by using any of em In any of my sermons, or speeches, no matter what the type of audience Is. I run onto this Emil Ludwig out here the other day.
