Middle Western Farmers
Helped By Better Crops,
KANSAS CITY, July 31. - (/P) -
Rural middle America is going off
By thousands, farm families are
becoming self-supporting, aided by
better crop conditions, resettlement
loans and their own efforts, a survey
Since a year ago approximately 10,-
000 Kansas farm families have worked
themselves off the relief rolls and 9,-
600 families are beating back with the
aid of rehabilitation loans, Carl How-
ard, supervisor of farm management
of the Federal Resettlement Adminis-
tration for the state, reported.
Not more than 500 Kansas farm
famhilies are still getting relief, How-

ernment loans to buy horses, cattle
and seed and because of better crops.
Nebraska farm families on relief
have dropped from about 3,000 to a
negligible number today.
In July, 1934, there were 27,484 Wis-
consin farmers on drouth relief. In
June, 1935, the number had dropped
to 550. Relief statistician Herman
Somers said this reversal was due to
"spendid weather conditions and im-
proved farm prices."
Many Are Dropped
Incomplete information from Illi-
nois is indicated that "in 43 counties
with heavy rural population" relief
clients dropped from 23,149 in 1934 to
19,968 in July, 1935.
Missouri relief officials reported
some 4,500 farm families "have be-
come self supporting through the ru-
ral habitation program this year.
Iowa farm relief authorities said
3,578 rural families were receiving
drouth aid'on March 1, 1935, but the
numnber had been reduced to 1,619
late in July.
North Dakota, heavily hit by drouth
last year, had 32,102 farmers on re-
lief, but the number has been re-
duced to 22,337. Of these, many "are
receiving only partial aid," FERA Sta-
tistician F. C. Hauser said.
In the west, Utah and Nevada re-
ported increases in relief cases this
year. C. O. Stott, Utah resettlement
chief, said "effects of the drouth are
still being felt in the state," and a
Nevada relief headquarters statement
asserted "farmers have had too short
a time to become self supporting or
better their crop conditions."
Better crop and water conditions re-
duced Arizona's rural relief load from
3,200 to 2,500 families.
Idaho reported 5,100 families on re-
Lief. Of 465 helped through rehabili-
tation channels in the last year "less
than 10 per cent have had any gov-
ernment aid since being loaned
A Minnesota relief official asserted
"if crop conditions continue excellent
and prices are right, virtually all cases
will go off relief and be self support-

WASHINGTON, July 31. - (P)--
Recognizing current Nazi activities

Department was on record today for
"religious freedom and liberty."
Diplomatic officials acted on a for-
mal German protest against an al-
leged insult to a Nazi flag, stripped
by a mob from the liner Bremen in
New York harbor. On receipt of the
protesting note from the German
embassy, the department relayed its
contents to Gov. Herbert H. Lehman
of New York.
Word came from Mayor Fiorello
H. La Guardia, of New York, that
those involved in the flag incident
"will be prosecuted."

Stock Barns In
KANSAS CITY, July 31. --()-
Fire fanned by a south breeze raged
for an hour in the Kansas City,Mo.,
stockyards early today before it was
brought under control.
At least 33 mules were destroyed
when a $25,000 barn, which housed
300 animals, was cut down by flames.
More than 125 horses, some of them
unbroken western saddle stock, were
released by hostlers and stampeded
down a main traffic artery, hindering
fire trucks en route to the scene.
Attendants found the fire had a
good start by the time they were at-
tracted by the braying of the trapped
Approximately one block, one-tenth
of the area devoted to horses and
mules, was burned. Most of the other
animals were housed to the south and
east and were not in danger.
Fifteen fire companies were called,
two of them from Kansas City, Kas.
The horses were consigned to the
Cuban government and were being
branded preparatory to shipment this

In answer to a letter from four
leading Jewish organizations, acting
Secretary William Phillips declared
that Americans considered religious
freedom and liberty of conscience "the
most fundamental principles of our
civilization and political faith" and
were sympathetic to the maintenance
of those concepts in all countries.
He added that he could "fully un-
derstand" the solicitude regarding the
"experience which these (religious)
groups are reported to be suffering
The German government formally
protested against what it termed a
serious insult to the German national
emblem in a note delivered to the
State Department by Dr. Rudolph
Leitner, German charge d'affaires,
acting under instruction from the
Berlin foreign office.
While the department did not make
public the text of the note, it was
learned authoritatively that it re-
quested the American authorities to
make every effort to insure that the
anti-Nazis who tore down the swas-
tika flag be punished.
It was learned also that the note
did not demand an official apology.
Wilbur J. Carr, acting secretary at
the time of the incident, made an
informal and verbal apology the next
day by expressing regret that irre-
sponsible individuals would mistreat
the flag of any friendly nation.
Phillips' letter to the American
Jewish Committee, the American Jew-
ish Congress, the B'Nai B'Rith and the
Jewish Labor Committee, after prom-
ising to give careful consideration to
allegations of mistreatment of Jews,
Catholics and other religious and ra-
cial groups in Germany, said:
