WASHINGTON, Jan. 22. - (/) -
The New Deal's substitute for AAA-
a two-year, half-billion dollar stop-
gap plan built on soil conservation-
was started today on its congressional
The measure was made public
simultaneously by Chairman Jones
(Dem. Tex.) of the house agriculture
committee and Senator Bankhead
(Dem.-Ala). Shortly afterward it
was dropped in the bill hopper.
The projected $500,000,000 appro-
priation was not included. It will be
offered as a separate bill and an ef-
fort made in the senate to tack it on
to the independent offices supply bill.
Amends 1935 Act
The new farm bill amends the Soil
Conservation act of April 27, 1935 and
adds to its anti-erosion policies:
Preservation and improvement of
soil fertility.
Promotion of the economic use of
Diminution of exploitation and un-
profitable use of national soil re-
Provision for andsmaintanance of
a continuous and stable supply of
agricultural commodities adequate to
meet domestic and foreign consumer
requirements at prices fair to both
producers and consumers.
Reestablishment and maintenance
of farm purchasing power.
Payments Authorized
The secretary of agriculture is
authorized to "make payments or
grant other aid" to agricultural pro-
ducers based upon:
"1-Their acreage of soil-improv-
ing or, erosion-preventing crops.
"2-Their acreage of crop land.
"3-Changes in the use of their
"4-A percentage of their normal
production of any one or more agri-
cultural commodities designated by
the secretary which equals that per-
centage of the normal national pro-
duction of such commodities required
for domestic consumption."
This section resembled the so called
domestic allotment plan.
A definite bar was inserted in the
bill against contracts "binding upon
producers to acquire land or rights or
interests therein.

Where the Nazi government claims
that three million have been reem-
ployed since its accession to power,
Miss Thompson pointed out that this
had been achieved by the following
methods: 500,000 added to the army;
300,000 women returned to their
homes without increase in the earn-
ing'power of male relatives; 150,000
political prisoners placed in concen-
tration camps; 70,000 forced out of
the country; and unknown thousands
now in work camps and on road gangs,
Thus, well over 1,000,000 of the re-
employed are accounted for, with cor-
responding decrease in hourly wages,c
and in average hours per day from
eight to six and a half. Most of the
remainder, Miss Thompson main-
tained, have been absorbed by the
heavy rearmament industry.r
The monarchial restoration of thet
Hapsburgs in Austria, she said, is con-
trolled by three influences, Germany,
Italy, and the Little Entente. Of1
these, only Italy favors the restora-
tion, and Germany, she holds, would

oppose it almost to the point of war.z
In the English situation, Miss
Thompson saw Great Britain once
more clinging to the League and its
system of the collective security ast
the only hope for the empire's life.t
Great Britain has brought about a
change in the guiding League policy
from status quo to the Kellogg-BriandI
pact, and will attempt to bring Ger-
many back into the League withoutf
mentioning rearmament, she said. t
"There is a strong probability that
the League may restore Memel to Ger-c
many in the next ten months," shec

Reuters' Not FoundedI
The most noticeable of the two
anachronisms is the partial dispatch
at the bottom beginning "Advices by
Reuters." What follows is evidently
supposed to be a story from Reuter's
News Agency, which was founded by
Paul Julius, later Baron de Reuter,
born in 1821, nearly 40 years after
the supposed date of the article.
Information on the establishment
of the News Agency is given by the
Encyclopedia Britannica, which
traces it to 1851, just after the Dover-
Calais submarine cable had been
laid, when Reuter opened a bureau
for the transmission of information
between England and the continent.
Not until 1858, however, did his ef-
forts to get his cable dispatches into
print have success, when The Times;
published the report of an important
New Council
Announced BY
Announcement of the organization
of a student council in the -dental
school was made yesterday by Prof.
Russell W. Bunting of the School of
The council is composed of two
representatives from each of the four
dental fraternities, two independent
members from each of the four
classes, and the chairman and sec-
retary of the Executive Committee
of the Faculty.
This organization is to function
as a student council to help in the
formation of student activities. In
addition, Professor Bunting stated,
it affords a direct relationship with
the faculty through the representa-
tive members who will sit in the
It is planned, according to Professor
Bunting, that in this manner expres-
sions of student opinion may be
freely and readily communicated to
the faculty, and conversely, faculty
plans for student welfare may be more
clearly represented to the various
classes through their representatives
on the council.

speech by Napoleon III which had
been forwarded by Reuter's Paris
The agency flourished from that
time until the death of Baron Reuter
in 1$99, and since then has grown to
be one of the greatest news syndi-
cates of the world.
Letter "S" Incorrect
The second and more disputable
point is the printed lower case "s,"
which up to the time of the revolu-
tion at least was found as long "s,"
resembling an "f" without the cross-
bar, wherever the letter is doubled,
and usually whenever the single "s"
does not end a word. Witness the
familiar "in Congreff affembled" of
contemporary American documents.
Of six contemporary documents ex-
amined in the William Clements Li-
brary here, five of them used the
long "s," only one omitting it entirely
from the body type. Included in this
list of six were three English per-
iodical publications of 1789, the "Lon-
don Gazette," "Gentleman's Maga-
zine," and "Publick Acts," and all
three showed the older character.
Yet against this the opposition can
offer considerable evidence: authori-
ties in the office of the Early Modern
English Dictionary here maintain
that the long "s" had almost disap-
peared from printing at the close of
the 18th century.
Long "S" Disappeared
Furthermore "Printing Types," by
Daniel B. Updike, generally accepted
authority on the history, forms, and
use of type, has this to say: "The
aboltion of the long 's,' it is popularly
thought, we owe to the London pub-
lisher John Bell, who in his British
Theatre, issued about 1775, discarded
To this argument, however, the4
answer can be made that a sample
type of book for 1763 of William Cas-
Ion, font-designer who originated the
Caslon Oldstyle in which the item
is printed, printed the long "s" where-
ever old usage required it.
A final comment, open to still fur-
ther argument, concerns the time re-
lation of the news items. According
to the story, Darnay's trial did not
occur until at least 1785, yet the
three lines of the preceding item
would seem to indicate by "remain"
that the American Revolution was
still in progress, consequently placing
the news before 1783.
