Agricultural Meeting at Prague
to Give American Delegate
Study of Subject.
PLAN TO CUT EXPENSES
Investigation of Means to Limit
Costs of Production Through
Organization Scheduled.
WASHINGTON. May 16. - (P) -
Possible application of European
farm credit principles -to the Amer~
ican rural credit structure may be-
come an important part of studies
to be made at the fifteenth inter-
national congress of agriculture by
Asher Hobson, United States dele-
gate.
The congress will be held at
Prague, Czechoslovakia, June 5 to 8,
to discuss agrarian policies, rural
economy, agricultural education and
related subjects.
Rural economy will entail inves-
tigation of means for reducing the
costs of farm production.
Credit Is Limited.
At present production and mar-
keting finance figure prominently
in American farm expenses. Credit
is limited and expensive chiefly be-
cause it is secured by land mort-
gage and crop lien, and obtained
from centralized credit institutions.
in Europe, farmers finance them-'
selves largely through credit organ-
izations which they own and oper-
ate. The borrower's security is his
entire assets rather than his land
or his crops alone, and this makes
for an extremely low interest rate.
Losses are infrequent, since the
borrower's credit usually is limited
to what the organization's members,
his immediate neighbors, know him
to be worth.
Hobson to Attend.
The international congress ,sup-
ported by 92 national agricultural
associations from the 27 countries,
meets every two years.
Hobson, appointed 'by President1
Hoover to attend the fifteenth con-
gress, was reared on a farm in Kan-
sas. His principal interests have
been marketing and related sub-
jects.
He has been instructor in eco-
nomics and marketing at the state
college of Washington, and an asso-
ciate professor in marketing at Co-
lumbia university.
He has held various positions
with the department of agriculture
and at present is chief of the for-
eign service, bureau of agricultural
economics.
Open Old Georgetown
for Free Inspection
WASHINGTON, May 16-()-Old
Georgetown, quaintest yet a most
newly-fashioned corner of the na-
tional capital, today held "open
garden."
People flocked to see landscaped
nooks that are but tantalizingly
glimpsed the rest of the year-for
Georgetown's beauty spots are hid-
den behind brick walls. I
After the pilgrimage conclues the
gardens will return to their seclu-
tion, waiting another May-time to
delight the public eye and help
along a community charity. The
money this year goes to a nursery
school.

Murie Is Experienced.
Further word can not reach
Gaige until next week, as it is at
least a three day trip from El Cayo
to Uaxactun and the time required
for the trip cannot be estimated.
"Amsden and Murie are exper-
ienced explorers," said Gaige, "and
Van Tyne will be in capable and
competent hands during the trip to
the boat at El Cayo..
"The expedition itself has been
of the greatest success. A letter re-
ceived from Van Tyne yesterday,
under the date of April 29, from
Uaxactun, :reports unusually large
collections," he continued.
The expedition was the first part
of a 20 year bioligical survey of
the old Maya area, under the direc-
tion of the museum of zoology 'in
-co-operation with the Carnegie in-
-titution. Professor Bartlett, -at 'Be-

folk and a host of admirers paid
tribute today to David Belasco pro-
ducer and dramati'Lt whose genius
and spirit enriched the American
stage for half a century.
Friday night a memorial service
for Mr. Belasco, who died Thurs-
day, was broadcast from station
WOR.
President Hoover, in, a telegram
read over the air, said of Belasco:
"From his boyhood in San
F ra n c i s c o, David Belasco
brought to his national career
an adventurous quality of an
imagination and freedom from
precedent that helped him
pioneer those paths in the
world of the theatre which
were so distinctly his contribu-
tion to the art of the theatre.
His vivid personality will be
deeply missed by the whole
country."

"Such popularity
must be deserved."
