Factors In
The Land Problem. . .
AS THE NATION approaches four
more momentous years under
President Roosevelt, it seems to be a foregone
conclusion among political observers that the
question of aid, both financial and otherwise,
for American farmers will be an important issue.
Critics of the New Deal,among them Henry
Lewis Mencken, the fire-breathing dragon of
the American Mercury, have already begun to
protest that farm-relief is unnecessary, that
looney spent on it is wasted. To the urban tax-
payer, from whose pocket this money must come,
Mencken addresses his appeal, insisting that a
farmer who is a farmer needs no aid from the
government, and that others, who are merely
land-grabbers, do not deserve aid.
The land-grabbers are located particularly in
the Dust Bowl regin, the states of the north
middle west, according to the maestro, and de-
serve no aid from the government or anyone else,
because they are inefficient and unwilling to
better themselves. Discussing the effect of the
defunct Agricultural Adjustment Administration
on the farmers of the Dust Bowl, Doctor Men-
cken says, "They are still as badly off as they
were when the business of rescuing them was
first undertaken. They are still buried in mort-
gages, their farms are still blowing away under
their feet. and their families and cattle are still
famished."
For contrast he presents that group of farm-
ers known as the Pennsylvania Dutch. "Among
such farmers, the sturdy kulaks of this great
Republic," he says, "running into debt is re-
garded as at best, a humiliating misfortune, and
as, at worst, a kind of skullduggery comparable
to barn-burning or well-poisoning. They be-

lieve that an industrious man on good land can
always get along, and they have been proving
it year after year since the Indians first cleared
the way for them by going on the dole."
Taking the opposite stand is that school of
thought ably represented by an article in Com-
monweal for last August which holds that farm
aid is necessary to the wellibeing of the nation,
because agriculture is necessary for the exist-
ance of the nation, and because agriculture dif-
fers from industry in that it cannot survive with-
out assistance from the government.
This rather humanitarian school feels that
agriculture, unlike mechanized industry, is a
way of life, and must be improved and cultivated
if a part of the country's population is to be
willing to live as agriculturists. Particularly

by great dust storms, and urgently in need of
aid in some form.
South Dakota, officially nicknamed "The Sun-
shine State," is exposed to extreme changes in
temperature because of its high altitude, north-
ern latitude and great distance from the ocean.
Moreover, the topography of Jae state does not
invite cultivation. East of the Missouri River,
which divides it almost in half, there is a rather
thin topsoil, which, if carefully cultivated, will
bring forth a mediocre yield of wheat. To the
west of the river, the land is sandy and shifting,
suited to absolutely no type of cultivation. The
entire state is incessantly beleagured by bliz-
zards, sand storms and, worst of all, severe
drouths. In very few sections is there enough
water to be of much value in agriculture.
Yet, of South Dakota's 49,195,520 acres, 36,-
470,083 are in farms and there are apout 83,000
farms of all sizes in the state. Only about 20 per
cent of these farms are owned fully by their
operators, and 59.8 per cent of them are mort-
gaged. In Indiana, a state in the central Middle
West, but not in the Dust Bowl region, there are
181,570 farms, about 53 per cent of which are
owned fully by their operators. In Indiana, only
45.3 per cent of the farms are mortgaged, and
the total value of lands and farms is $1,415,542,-
192, as compared to only $105,059,543 in South
Dakota, which has an area twice that of In-
diana.
In Pennsylvania, chosen by Mencken as a
state where farming is farming, the land and
climate are similar to that of Indiana. The soil
is rich and fertile, the climate at not any time
too extreme. In an area of 26,692,480 acres, 15,-
309,485 are in farms. There are 172,419 farms
in the Keystone state, 81 per cent of which are
operated by full owners, and only 33.9 per cent
of which are mortgaged. The total value of farm
lands and buildings is about $1,203,017,645.
There are reasons, of course, for the fact that
farmers in South Dakota and other Dust Bowl
states are not as successful as in other farming
states of the union. There are reasons for the
fact that a greater number of farms in the Dus
Bowl are mortgaged than in other states, and
there are reasons for the fact that these mort'1
gages are being reduced at a slower rate in
the Dust Bowl than in other sections.
Most of these reasons can be found in a brief
history of South Dakota. Intensive settlement
of South Dakota was begun in 1877, which
year marked the beginning of the "Great Da-
kota Boom." Much of the territory was settled
in that year and the next. The boom ended
with the disastrous drouth of 1889. But condi-
tions were improved in a few years, and the boom
was reborn. Between 1890 and 1900, the total
acreage being used for farming in South Dakota
increased by about 8,000,000, and the value of
land rose,by $3 per acre. In 1904, when new
reservation was opened, 106,000 persons applied
for the right to enter these lands, and in 19
there was another serious drouth. In the years
following there was a long succession of serious
floods cloudbursts and blizzards. .
Then, in 1933, South Dakota experienced its
first "black blizzard," or dust storm, preceded 1
a great plague of grasshoppers. And in 1934
a drouth "ruined" agriculture.
But a great many of even the early settlers did
not own the land which they operated. In the
first great rush, it had been a case of first come,
first served, and population figures indicate that
thousands of persons who flooded into the state
settled on their own land only for a short time,
and then moved into the cities, letting their hold-I
ings out to those who came later. Thus, between
1890 and 1900, the total population of the state
increased 16.8 per cent, while the population of
the urban centers increased 182.4 per cent. And
in the hectic fever of boom days, thousands of
mortgages were placed on new farms.
It is obvious that these farmers do need aid
of some sort. Both the forces of nature and the
nature of man have contrived against them.
Their land, infertile by nature, requires planned
and scientific cultivation.
Their financial problems need adjustment.
The longer aid is delayed, the greater the prob-
lem becomes. Ill fares the land, Goldsmith said,
when men decay, and Henry Wallace has added
the thought that ill fare the men when the land
decays. This nation has been careless in con-
serving its soil. When the frontier was open,

worn-out lands could be exchanged" for new, and
bad habits of forest devastation, overcropping,
destructive g:azing and soil mining were de-
veloped. It is necessary that something be
done to check these wasteful tendencies.
Another dangerous factor which looms
particularly large in the Dust Bowl is the great
amount of farm tenancy. As has been pointed
out, many settlers rented their land during the
boom days in South Dakota, and still more
people poured into the state, eager to get land
at any cost, and willing to assume heavy fixed
charges. In the half century from 1880 to 1930
the number of farm tenants in the United States
more than doubled. In 1930, more than 40 per
cent of the farmers rented all the land they
farmed, and an additional 10 per cent rented
part of their land. The farm census of 1935 re-
ported about 2,855,000 tenant farmers, whose
families aggregated 12,500,000 persons. Between
1930 and 1933. the percentag'e of tenant farmers
increased greatly in the states of the Dust Bowl.
The most important and time-tested attempt
which has been made thus far to improve the
status of the farmer was the Agricultural Ad-
justment Administration, the Triple A. The
problems of the AAA were manifestly great. In
1930 there were about 6,000,000 farms in the
United States, all of them beset by different
problems. The only point on which farm leaders
agreed was that production should be curtailed.
and the farmer's income raised, to prevent farm
bankruptcy. This was clearly necessary.
War expansion and the expansion of produc-
tion to meet the demands of great industrial
development in the late 19th century, had given

THE ENTIRE CAMPUS was shocked yester-
day to learn of the sudden death of George
Monaghan. "Mon" as he was more often known
around the Phi Delta Phi house and the Law
School was one of those fellows that Michiganf
can ill afford to lose.
Famed for his sense of humor that inevitably
brought down the house with laughter. "Mon"
was one of the most popular lawyers the school
has ever had.
An only son, "Mon" had practically everything
in the world that a person could want, yet he
never let it affect his personality in the slightest.
He was always natural, generous and likeable-
the tops.
Four years at Georgetown drifted by and in
1934 "Mon" came to Michigan where in two
years he made a host of firm friends with his
sparkling wit and keen personality. As a senior
this year he would have graduated in June
and' thus fulfilled the last of his mother's ideals.
"Mon" is gone but it will be a long time before
his affable smile and good natured humor are,
forgotten around the Quad.
BACK in the good old days when Carl Forsythe
and Beach Conger were respectively city
editor and editorial director of The Daily, Carl
thought up the pseudonym Barton Kane as a
pen name which he used on big leading stories-
taxicab campaigns, B and G exposees, and the
like. Next year Frank Gilbreth used it on his
tell-all column "The Diagonal." After that it
dropped out of sight.
Al Neuman, former.sports editor of The Daily,
is now managing editor of Moley's magazine,
"Today," and I have spotted one letter recently
in their letter box, signed Barton Kane. Fur-
thermore, in a recent article on the coal mine
situation, they included the life of a typical
miner. Hesitating to use the man's proper name,
ingenious Newman substituted Barton Kane all
the way through the article.
Al is not the only ex-Daily promoter who has
made good in Gotham. The Herald-Tribhel
four of them on its staff. Henley Hall, is assis-
tant managing editor, Dick Tobin is an as-
sistant day city editor, Beach Conger is a re-
porter, and Ted Kaghan is head of the day shift
of copy boys. I wonder if they could use an-
other man around the building.

THE CHICAGO DAILY NEWS devoted the
front page of its sport section a week ago
to an eulogy of Harry Kipke, of Matt Patanelli,
and of Michigan. Said John P. Carmichael:
"Best end I saw all season was Captain Matt Pat-
anelli of Michigan the day he played so valiantly
in a losing cause against Minnesota. Said Ralph
Cannon, "Michigan can sing their champions of
the best battle cry with a skylarking smile, and
they can take it on the chin with an apprecia-
tive grin. Michigan doesn't gloat over victories.
Kip has never quit in the hard times and I for
one don't ever expect to see Michigan quit.
"Michigan is like the wahoo bird who flies
backward. He don't give a damn where he's
going, but he likes to look back over the scenery
where he's been."
THE ARMY has scheduled three tough clubs
for next season on which to warm up for
Columbia, Harvard, Notre Dame and Yale. They
are Clemson, Washington University and St.
John's of Maryland.. . . Larry Kelley was the
first man Andy Kerr went after when picking
his Eastern Stars for the annual San Francisco
battle with the West Coast stalwarts on New
Year's Day . . . The Daily Princetonian is the
instigator of the demand for an Ivy Football
League . . . General Hugh S. Johnson, now is a
columnist for the United Feature Syndicate, in a
recent column on the Army-Navy football game
he said he'd like to have a moment or two alone
with Shorty Miller, the field judge who called
interference on Army's Sullivan on the Army 3-
yard line. The General calls Miller the "little sir
who never in his life has accomplished a feat of

derring do."
If the General knows that Shorty was perhaps
the best end Penn State ever had in the days
when they played football for keeps, the ex-
NRA administrator will do well to avoid 'a mo-
ment alone' with him at any cost.
in income hould help small, badly-equipped, in-
fertile, poorly-watered farms. An increase in
the efficiency of production was most important
tc achieve the reduction of production.
With this aim'in mind, the AAA was organized,
complemented by the Farm Credit Administra-
tion, the Resettlement Administration and the
Soil Erosion Service. But 4n the short span of
its existence, the AAA did not fulfill expecta-
tions. A report of the Brookings Institute on
chances in the price of wheat brought about by
the AAA is typical. Although the price of wheat
rose fiom 37.9 cents in 1932 to 73.3 cents in 1933-
34, the Institute reports, the only major result
was the raising of the income of wheat growers
by adjustment payments. The farmers would
not have benefitted as they did had it not been
for rental payments by the government for acre-
age drawn from production.
The method was unsatisfactory, because it ex-
hibited a bad tendency towards coercion rather
than the achieving of a natural balance, and it
also had the danger of increasing unemploy-
ment. Other methods of balancing the farm in-
come with the national income other than that
tried by the AAA, are to export the surplus with-
out importing an equivalent, or, as Henry Wal-
lace has suggested, to consume it domestically

erture, which he entitled "The Ro- Louis A. Hopkins, Secretary.
man Carnival.'
Both of these themes are utilized in The University Bureau of Appoint-
the rather lengthy introduction with ments and Occupational Information
which the Overture opens. After a has received announcement of Unit-
mere suggestion of the more lively ed States Civil Service examinations

one of the two, the second theme, a
broad lyrical Andante, is sung by the
English horn against an accompani-
ment of plucked strings. It has been
said of Berlioz, as of Richard Strauss
at a later date, that his melodies are
often uninteresting and obsecured by
an over-complexness of orchestral
setting. Many examples from his
writings may be produced to bear out
the truth of this statement, but no
finer and more obvious refuttaion
could be found than in this charming
love song, originally sung by Ben-
venuto in the first act of the opera.
After the English horn has finished
with the melody it is repeated and
developed by full orchestra.
This intfroduction leads into the
Allegro Vivace of the Overture prop-
er, based upon the theme of a sal-
tarello which occurs in the second
act of the opera (a "saltarello" being
a Roman dance in triple metre and of
a characteristic "hopping" rhythm).
This theme is fully developed and
then combined with the lyrical mel-
ody of the introduction, ater which
the work culminates in a frenzied
torrent of rhythmn and tone. Char-
acteristic color is added in the latter
portion through the use of triangle,
cymbal, and tambourines.
Prelude to "Lohengrin"-Wagner
(1815-1883). Although Lohengrin is
classed as an opera, along with Wag-
ner's Rienzi, Flying Dutchman, and
Tannhaeuser, rather than as a mu-
sic drama like Tristan and the other
later works, the composer's metamor-
phosis from operatic composer to
music dramatist was by no means
abrupt; evidences of the later Wag-
ner may be seen as early as in the
Dutchman, in which musical motives
are associated with certain of the
leading characters. In Tannhaeuser,
his next work, the composer further
developed his system of "leit-mo-
tives," but one definite operatic char-
acteristic of this work is its con-
ventional overture, utilizing motives
from the opera.
Lohengrin, which followed Tann-
haeuser, is also preceded by a piece
of music made up of thematic ma-
terial from the main body' of the
work, but instead of being an "ov-
erture" it was called a "prelude," and
its purpose is not that of a mere cur-
tain raiser, or even of a musical
synopsis of the plot. Rather does it
endeavor to emphasize the essential
feature of the opera-the apparition
of the wonder-working Holy Grail.
The whole of the short tone poem is
built upon the broadly developed
cantabile theme of the Grail.
Through a continuous crescendo to a
sweeping climax and subsequent de-
crescendo, it conyeys the illusion of
a host of angels bearing the Grail
earthward from aetherial spheres
and again returning to celestial
heights.

For any individual to order,
have made, or permit to be ordered
or made, any duplicate of his or her
University key, through unauthorized
channels, must be regarded as a
special and willful disregard of the
safety of University property."
These regulations are called to the
attention of all concerned, for their
information and guidance. Any per-~
son having any key or keys to Uni-
versity buildings, doors, or other locks,
contrary to the provisions recited
above, should promptly surrender the
same to the Key Clerk at the office
