Drought Relief
I Bing Planned
By Government
President Roosevelt Is Ex-
pected To Present Policy
Shortly

Agricultural Officials Will
Report On General Situ-
tion
WASHINGTON,. Aug. 14. - /P) -
President Roosevelt is expected to
lay before the country within the
next few days a statement of future
policy on drought and farm relief.
There are indications. that it may
include, an answer to critics of the
AAA'scrop reduction, some of whom
have been stressing drought devasta-
tion to emphasize what they call the
"sin" of artificial slashing of food
supplies.
AAA officials have been touring the
country, answering this criticism.
They told farmers that human con-
trol was necessary to curtail over-
production that depressed prices, to
restore farm purchasing power, and
thus to bring the national economy
into better balance.
Secretary Wallace stressed Monday
that though the AAA sought large
cuts in production before the drought
came along and slashed crops indis-
criminately, the aim of "control" is
not necessarily smaller crops.
Prices Expected To Rise
"We always contemplated a pro-
gram which was one of adjustment,"
he said. "It 'is not exclusively one of
either reduction or increase in acre-
age. You'll find I'm on record - back
in May - on that."
A rise inathe general cost of living,
but especially foodstuffs, is consid-
ered likely this winter and the gov-
ernment is pushing preparations for
its anti-profiteering campagin with
Sr-thae fervor. Secretary Wallace
said that he felt the cost of living
would not rise more than 6 or 7 per
cent, although the price of food would
probably go beyond that.
Exposes of "wild cat" speculators
are planned as a chief weapon. The
officials think that after full pub-
licity, the force of public opinion will
do the rest.
Rain and cooler weather in much
of the drought territory were believed
to have done some good Monday, but
not much.
Over the grazing country, the most
momentous stock movement in his-
tory went on. Ranchers at Willis-
ton, N. D., stood silent watching the
"last roundup"-10,000 starving cat-
tle loaded on cars to speed away to
< southern pastures and eastern slaugh-
ter pens.
Cheyenne Indians of Oklahoma
feasted in Thanksgiving today for
rain that streamed down on baking
prairies.
"No rain for two moons. Now
rain," they exulted.
Conditions To Be Reported On
Working under White House orders,
the department of agriculture expect-
ed to produce today a comprehensive
report on drought conditions.
Officials also are working on an
inventory of food and feed supplies.
They declared that figures already
available indicated that no food
shortage was in prospect.
The food and feed survey will fur-
nish President Roosevelt with a true
estimate of supplies and their loca-
tion.
Dr. Fred C. Howe, consumers' coun-

sel of the AAA, said his organization
was enlisting 140 local consumers'
organizations in the anti-profiteering
fight.
"Everything that can be done pre-
paratory to meeting the situation is
being done," he said.
Besides exposure of "profiteers,"
the government is expected to dissem-
inate information on comparative
food prices, and to check speculation
through the grain future administra-
tion.

' This map, prepared by the United States department of agriculture, gives an indication at a glance of
the extent to which ravages of the drought have made themselves felt in almost all parts of the country.
Crop losses have been so severe in large farming areas that Secretary Henry A. Wallace has announced
there probably will be a lessening of crop restrictions next year.-

Nazi Financier
Schacht Joins
Hitler's Drive
Economic Leader Throws
Support Into Fuehrer's
ElectionCampaign
BERLIN, Aug. 14. - (iP) -Dr. Hial-
mar Schacht, Germany's economic
leader, today joined the whirlwind
camp'aign to make Adolf Hitler the
cuntry's official dictator.
"If we want to overcome present
difficulties-as we will," said Schacht,
"we can do so only under Hitler's
leadership."
Trusted Hitler lieutenants are on
the stump in a drive for Nazi justi-
fication. Germany votes Sunday on
the question of approval of Hitler's
seizure of the late President Paul von
Hindenburg's powers.
Unlike other speakers, Schacht,
who recently was appointed acting
minister of economics and who is
virtually boss of Reich finance and
economics, frankly admitted Ger-.
many's woes. He is president of the
Reichsbank.
All is not yet well with the Nazi
Storm Troops, whose ranks were
"purged" in the June 30 revolution, it
was indicated by Viktor Lutze, theirl
chief of.staff, in an interview.
No definite orders for Storm Troop-
er assistance in the plebiscite have
been or will be given by the "supreme
command," he said expressing the
hope that "after the restoration of the
old relationship of confidence the
Storm Troops would become Hitler's
most reliable helpers."
Frank Picard
To Resign As
Liquor Chief
LANSING, Aug. 14. -- (P) -- Frank
A. Picard, chairman of the Liquor
Control Commission and candidate
for the Democratic nomination for
United States Senator, will submit his
resignation to Gov. Comstock within
the next few days, he announced to-
day.
Returning after a short vacation at
Glen Lake, Picard said he had hoped
to prepare his letter of resignation
during his absence from Lansing but
had not "got around to it." It prob-
ably will be ready, he added, by the
end of the week.
O. K. Fietland, secretary to Gov.
Comstock, said the governor had
reached no decision as to Picard's suc-
cessor. Both Detroit and Western
Michigan are clamoring for the ap-
pointment. Picard is from Saginaw
and the other appointive commission-
ers are V. F. Gormely, of Newberry,
and Harry Rickel, of Mt. Clemens.

Dean Brothers
Are Suspended
From Cardinals
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 14.-P) --Dizzy
and Paul Dean, star pitchers of the
St. Louis Cardinals, were indefinitely
suspended late today by Manager,
Frankie Frisch as an outgrowth of
their failure to accompany the Car-'
dinals to Detroit for an exhibition
game Monday.
The suspensions were announced by
Frisch after the brothers had ap-
proached the manager and demanded,'
"are we suspended?" Frisch told Dizzy
that he had been fined $100 and Paul
$50, but said they had not been sus-
pended, and ordered them on the
field. The Deans said they would go
"in a few minutes," but Frisch inter-
preted their actions as meaning they,
were not going to accept the fines
gracefully and told them they were'
suspended indefinitely.
Dizzy tore up his uniform, and the
uniform of another player, and said
he and Paul would go to Bradenton,
Fla., where Dizzy has a home.
Asked if he "really meant" he and
Paul were going away, Dizzy snorted:
"Yes, if we have enough money com-
ing, after they take those fines out of
our pay, we're going on a fishing trip
in Florida."
Dizzy has won 21 games this sea-
son, while losing 5. Paul has won 12
and lost 6.

ganized fire protection last year.

Youth Flags Train
To Prevent Wreck
LINDSAY, Ont., Aug. 14. - (P) - A
farm youth going about his chores
prevented what probably would have
been a serious wreck on the Cana-
dian National railway line at Ux-
bridge Monday night.
J. W. Forsyth, 18, had started for
the cows in a back pasture when he
saw a tree two feet in diameter lying
across the rails. He heard the train
whistle and then saw its headlights.

of the tree.
