Plan For ManagfedCurrency
Is Explained By Prof. Watkins

But Trucking At Council
Bluffs Falls Off; Duluth
Wheat Imports Lower
DES MOINES, Ia., Oct. 23.-(iP)-
Reports of milk dumping and picket-
ing marked the first direct thrust of
the national farmers' strike at pro-
duce marketing today.
In Wisconsin, farm pickets spilled
portions of a load of milk en route
to a condensery at Vesper and an-f
other at Neilsville, permitting only
800 pounds of milk to reach the lat-
ter town's condensers during the day.
Plans for peacefuly picketing all
highways leading t the important
Sioux City market in northwestern
Iowa, a militant farm sector, were
announced by W. C. Daniel, president
of the Woodbury County Farm Holi-
day Association. Pickets turned back
many livestock trucks bound for
Sioux City.
The initial marketing day of the
strike, which started at noon, Satur-
day, revealed little pronounced effect,
Most Iowa markets reported milk,
grain, and poulgy products re-
ceived in average volume. An ex-
ception was Council Bluffs, where
produce trucking dropped off sharp-
ly. At Omaha, Neb., livestock truck-
ing also was diminished but the rail
shipments brought the total receipts
to about the nornal expectation.
Grain receipts at thie Omaha ex-
change were also curtailed.
Because of North Dakota's wheat
embargo, receipts of 49 cars of spring
wheat at Duluth, Minn., were the
smallest since the ntw crop started
moving to markets. '
Southern and eastern Wisconsin
markets receipts were normal. Several
dozen small cheese factories in the
Fox river valley near Appleton and
a number of creameries in four
northwestern counties were closed.
Chicago, Minneapolis, and South
St. Paul dealers reported "no effect."
Although 21 states-are listed with
membership in the National Farmers
Holiday Association, sponsor of the
strike, only six thus far have joined
in the movement. They are Iowa,
Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota,
Illinois, and Wisconsin.

In an explanation of managed cur-
rency and an interpretation of the
President's monetary policies, Prof.
L. L. Watkins of the economics de-
partment said yesterday that he
considered the most significant part
of the President's talk Sunday night
to be the implicit rejection of infla-
"Now that the long-awaited an-
nouncement of the administration on
monetary policy has been made, it is
seen that the President has definitely
rejected revaluation as a means of
getting prices up to the desired level,
and that revaluation is to be utilized
only after prices have risen," Pro-
fessor Watkins said.
"By implication he rejects out-
right inflation and promises to get
prices up by credit expansion and
by other means now being utilized.
Reassurance on this score may do
something to stop the flight from the
dollar and promote a revival of long-
term investment.
"It is possible also that the au-
thority now given to the R. F. C. to
buy and sell gold on the world mar-
ket may signify the intention of try-
ing t6 control in some measure fluc-
tuations of the dollar in terms of for-
eign currencies," he declared.
"In his radio speech on Sunday
night President Roosevelt repeated
the two objectives to which he had
called attention in earlier state-
ments: (1) getting prices back to
the pre-depression level to ease the
burden on long term debtors, and
(2) stabilizing the value of the dol-
lar permanently at this new level,"
Professor Watkins said.
"He stated that we are definitely
working in the direction of a man-
aged currency and he promised that
once prices are brought back to the

Adverse Farm Sentiment
Leads NRA To Advance
Local Tribunal System
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.-(P)-
Under the pressure of adverse farm
sentiment, NRA today pulled out of
the country's villages and small
towns and announced a protective
chain of local tribunals to keep mer-
chants from hiking prices too high.
This first major change in the in-
dustrial recovery program was taken
under an executive order by Presi-
dent Roosevelt, forecast by a single
sentence in his Sunday night address
to the nation.
An exception under the order was
the chain store which, wherever lo-
cated, will remain under code regu-
lation. Also small factories, those do-
ing interstate business, and those em-
ploying more than five persons still
have NRA watching over them in the
otherwise exempt towns of 2,500 or
The order issuance coincided with

sumer representatives alike, but so

stantially the same protection against

The country's financial markets
sharply reversed their recent down-
ward trend today in response to Pres-
ident Roosevelt's plan for controlling
the price of gold.
On the New York Stock Exchange,1
share prices had a general rise of
$1 to more than $5, closing some-
what under the highs as traders took
profits. Gold mining issues, however,'
were buoyant all day, Homestake
soaring $40 to $340 and finishing at
the best.1
Grain markets were strong.p
Wheat's net gains approximated four1
cents a bushel, and final prices werei
around the top. Cotton at New York,
after rising nearly $1.50 a bale, re-
duced its improvement to 35 cents
to 65 cents net. Minor staples were?
generally higher, silver futures rising
half a cent or more.

Varsity Band
Plans Concert
At Exposition
I 'Fighting Hundred' Will
Play In Hall Of Science
Court After Grid Game
One of the first concerts by college
bands at the Century of Progress
Exposition will be given Sunday by
the Varsity Band in the court of the
Hall of Science.
The concert, which will occur on
the band's week-end trip incidental
to the Michigan-Chicago football
game Saturday at Stagg Field, will
take place at 2:30 p. m. Prof. Nich-
'olas D. Falcone has chosen a varied
program of classic and semi-classic
numbers to be presented before a
crowd of fair-goers which may num-
ber in the thousands.
The band will entrain at 7 a. m.
Saturday at the Michigan Central
Station, arriving in Chicago at noon.
From its hotel on Jackson Park the
unit will march to and from the Chi-
cago game and will then be given
free time to visit the exposition. Fol-
lowing Sunday's concert the band
will re-board its special train in the
Twelfth Street Station, arriving in
Ann Arbor at about midnight Sun-
This will be the band's only out-
of-town trip this year, according to
Herbert G. Watkins, business man-
ager. Last year the unit went to
Columbus and in 1931 to Princeton.
The roster of bandsmen and officers
expected to make the trip will num-
ber about 110.
Under the direction of Lieut. R. R.
Coursey, drillmaster, the "Fighting
Hundred" is planning a series of pre-
cise maneuvers which, officers hope,
will outshine those of the white-clad
Chicago band. These are planned to
include the diamond goose-step for-
mation which attracted so much at-I
tention Oct. 14 at the Cornell game.

Dramatized from the famous novel
of Harriet Beecher Stowe by George
L. Aiken, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" which
will be presented here by Play Pro-
duction, has reached a height of suc-
cess rarely equaled in the annals of
American drama. From 1852 until
1929 there was scarcely a night when
the play was not being presented
somewhere, whether in a large the-
atre or on an improvised stage of the
town hall of some mid-western
"Gopher Prairie."
And during all that time, Mrs.
Stowe saw the play only once on the

the same enthusiastic applause of the
opening night in Troy.
Like the showboat of the Missis-
sippi and the circuses of P. T. Bar-
num, the Tom show was a yearly
event. The billings, the caliope, the
parade, the animals and the tent, and
the general atmosphere of the per-
formance gave it the elements of a
