National Danger,
Agrarians Told
President Frank Warns
Against Cutting Agencies
Needed by Government


Wars Cost Heavily
days Farmers Are Fitted
to Distinguish False
Economy from Real
MADISON, Wis., Sept. 26.-Assert-
ing that a grave national danger may
1 found lurking in the current con-
cern with economy if we economize
blindly or let limited interests dictate
t1e schedules of retrenchment, Presi-
dent Glenn Frank told approximately
Q00 farmers and their wives atend-
i#g the Farm Field Day at the Uni-
v~rsty of Wisconsin college of agri-
culture recently that the real issue
confronting the people today is not
.economy versus extravagance, but
rather, is real versus bogus economy.
The economy, drastic beyond any-
thing we have peen accustomed to
tbiink, is needd in the conduct of
local, state, and national affairs no
intelligent man will question, Dr.
rank declared. But it -is possible to
le quite as short-sighted in adminis-
tering economy as In allowing extra-
yaganee, he said, maintaining that
real eeonmy will nmean nationpl sal-
vation, while bogus economy may
mean nat pnal suicde.
Wars }host Dearly
"The more deeply we analyze the
probe. of public expenditure, the
dlearer it bcomes that it simply is
not *he sPientifIc, social and educa-?
tional services of the nation that1
be n d s the American back," Pres.
Frank said. "And'yet, thrqughout the
tnation, we are trying to b a .a n c e
budget s by cutting the very heart out
tf the 9nly things that mualke govern-
ment a creative sqcial agency."
Askig his iseners to remember
that We could dimantle every federal
lurea and tp every civil function
o' th na ioal go!ernnent-with the
,o u r exceptions of c.onstruction,
.elief, loans fmr ship building, and
tleFederal Farm board-and still
#duce the'federal budget only eight
per cent, Pres. Frank pointed out
~hat, on the other hand, about three-
furths of the expenditures of the
federal government, or about 75 cents
n every dollar paid in federal taxes,
go into. payment for past wars and
preparation for future wars.
Farmer Knows Economy
"While we are bleeding white the
only things that make government
ucially sgificant, we go gaily on
wi1h political and economic policies
that are surely seting the stage for
further wars and thus fastening se-
curely upon us three-fourths or more
of. the existing federal budget," he
stated. "The real issue confronting
us is not economy versus extrava-
gance. Leaders who foster extrava-
gance will be broken. The real issue
is real versus bogus economy. Indis-
criminate budget slashing may set us
back (ocially for a generation."
No working group in American life
is in a beter position to sense the
distinction between the real and
bogus economy than the farmers,
'Pres. Frank said, pointing out that
that the farmer has been up against
the problem of economy longer than
the busines man.
Purdue Houses Cut
Monthly Expenses;
Average Bill Is $44
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 26.-
Keeping in step with the trend of the
times Purdue University fraternities
have in the past year or thereabouts
made drastic reductions in operation
costs, in one case the saving amount-
ed to enough to warrant a decrease
in the house bill of 27.3 per cent.
These results were obtained through
a canvass of the Greek organizations
on the campus which- the Pan-hellen-
ic council conducted.
The approximate period covered
was the past year, curing which
time the 38 fraternities questioned

showed an average decrease in house
charges of 10.5%. Further scrutiny
of the list showed that three houses
effected reductions of better than
20%, 17 others have cut the bills
anywhere from 10 to 16%, 13 more
show reductions of from two to 10%,
while five houses show no decrease in
Other items which the survey
brought to light were: the maximum
bill a year ago of $58 as compared
with $53 today, the average house
bill today of $44, and the low house
bill both today and a year ago of $32.

His 1 t vmo prodution , "The

Tibbett's time has alternated be-
tween his motion picture work and
his roles with the Metropolitan, Al-
though he devoted all his time last
summer to the production of photo-
plays which will bring the magic of
his voice to millions all over the
world, he has had time to star in
such famed operas as "Peter Ibbet-
son," and to launch an extensive
program of concert work. His ap-
pearance in Ann Arbor on Nov. 2,
the second offering of the University
Choral Union Concert Series, will be
an experience worth remembering,

Dollar Now 55 Cents
Bigger than in 1926
Comparing with the 1926 dollar,
today's dollar bill will purchase $1.55
worth of goods, according to the lat-
est in the series of Consumer studies
being conducted by Investors Syndi-
cate of Minneapolis.
The deadline in prices, the study
finds, has brought about interesting
changes in the family budget. The
result is that living costs, expressed
in dollars, are the lowest since 1917.
