SUNDAY, JULY 18, 1937

Ask Legislation
To Aid Income
Vegetable, Potato Growers
Urge State And Federal
Governments To Help

Burned Luggage


WASHINGTON, July 17.-(P)-
egetable and potato growers urged
oday that Federal and State govern-
ients enact legislation to improve

their incomes.
The recommendations came at a
time when congressional advocates of
farm legislation were divided over the
method that should be used in the
new bill.
President Roosevelt went over the
situation with Chairman Jones,
(Dem., Texas) of the House Argicul-
ture Committee during the day, but
Jones declined to say what had been
gone over at the conference.
"I had been wanting to talk with
the President about farm matters in
general," he said. "We have several
matters pending in the committee."
Urge Special Quotas
More than 60 representatives of
vegetable and potato growing areas
who have talked with agriculture de-
partment officials during the week
urged that special quotas be set up for
them under the soil conservation pro-
gram. They asked that they be al-
lotted bases similar to those now used
for "tobacco, cotton and peanut"
Potato growers said the prospect of
404,000,000 bushel crop this year
threatened "disaster to the industry"
They asked the Agricultural Adjust-
ment Administration to establish di-
version programs for lower grades of
potatoes and establish a special com-
mittee to work out a federal potato
They asked Secretary Wallace to
seek legislation requiring that allpo-
tatoes moving in interstate commerce
"be branded,.tagged, or described in
terms of United States grades or as
Wallace was asked to seek addition-
al federal funds to improve market-
ing reports, crop estimates and price
studies in the vegetable field. The
group said vegetable growers should
establish large cooperative marketing
organization able to bargain on equal
terms with mass buyers of their pro-
ducts, such as canneries and larg'e re-
tail store chains.
Chance To Pass Measure
Jones said his conference with the
President had no bearing on-when he
would introduce a long-awaited gen-
eral farm bill but that he hoped to
have a tentative draft ready for his
committee's consideration when it
meets in executive session Tuesday.
He said the committee would have
a chance to pass on the measure be-
fore he formally introdutes it.
House advocates of farm legislation
at this session have split three ways
over production control, though in
general agreement with the proposed
"ever normal granary" program de-
signed to prevent price fluctuation.
Jones heads one group demanding
a voluntary program under which
participating farmers would be paid
cash benefits financed by a proces-
sing tax.
Another group is urging compul-
sory legislation which would give all
farmers marketing quotas in years
when surplus crops threaten the price
The third group wants the Fed-]
eral government'to fix cost of pro-
duction prices on farm commodities;
needed for domestic use and thej
"ever-normal" granary program. 1

Five Records
Are Smashed
At Princeton
Cambidge, Oxford Score
7 To 5 Victory Over
Princeton, Cornell
PRINCETON, N. J., July 17.-(A)-
Five meet records were smashed in
the stifling heat of Palmer Stadium
today as the combined forces from
Cambridge and Oxford, paced by long
legged Alan Pennington and the
famed Arthur Godfrey Brown, scored
a second successive 7 to 5 victory over
Princeton and Cornell in their eighth
international track and field meet.
The thinclads from his Majesty's
realm, exerting themselves only when
the pressure was as hot as the re-
lentless sun, won on the perform-
ance of Pennington and Brown, who
turned in doubles in their specialties,
to give the British a 4 to 3 lead in the
international series. One was a tie.
Brown was the star of the two, set-
ting a meet record of 1:52.2 in the
half mile run, final and decisive event
on the program. Needing the triumph
to insure victory, Brown clipped eight
tenths of a second from the meet
mark set in 1933 by Bill Bonthron,
Princeton's immortal track star. His
feat gave him the race by a good 10
yards over his closest pursuer, Johnny
M~eaden of Cornell who was passed
like he was standingwstill with the
stretch lying ahead.
Brown also captured the quarter
mile by five yards over James Ham-
ilton Hucker of Cornell in the com-
paratively slow time-for him-of
48.6. Because of Brown's perform-
ances, Cambridge scored five of the
seven points for the team.
Pennington, the Oxford sprint star,
won the 100 and 220-yard dashes,
taking the century by good measure
in 10.2 and the 220 in the time of
The other four meet records set
High jump, won by Robert Kirk
Kennedy of Cambridge with a six
foot 31/ inch leap as compared with
the record of 6 feet 2 set twice in the
meet's history-in 1929 by B. V.
Hedges, Jr., Princeton and Charles
Scott, Cornell, in 1934.
Shot put, won by the Turkish star
from Cambridge, Ali Ifran, who threw
the weight 48 feet 7 inches as against
the old record of 48 feet 5% inches
by L. H. Levy, Cornell, in 1930.
Broad jump, won by Anson Perina,
Princeton freshman, who went 24
feet 7%s inches before he was stopped.
The former mark, set in 1934 by K.
S. Kuncan of Oxford, was 23 feet 73/4
The 220-yard low hurdles, won by
Johnny Irwin of Princeton in 23.9
as against the meet record of 24.1
seconds established in 1933 by C. F.
Stanwood of Oxford.

Successful Orchestras Have

_..... ..

Different Sty

"I don't think an orchestra has to
be good to be successful. It has to
be different." That is the opinion
of Will Osborne, popular orchestra
leader and present Westwood attrac-
Chance decreed his individuality,
according to Osborne. During a
series of New York radio broadcasts
where he used "Song of the Islands"
as his theme song, he substituted a
slide on a trombone for a non-exist-
ent Hawaiian guitar. Will smiled as
he confessed that it didn't sound like
a guitar, but the many comments he
received made him decide to feature
it. First he tried it with three in-
stead of one trombone, and then
reorganized the orchestra, cutting
out the three stringed instruments
to make room for an additional three
brass. Thus was originated "slide"

years ago in Toronto, Ontario where
he played in the high school band. In
his intense musical interest, he left

During the four years that he played

many present-day stars."
The band features a series of im-
itations of famous dance bands on its
Westwood program. The inside story
on that as revealed by Osborne, is
that they are prepared to do about
11 nationally famous ones. "Some-
times we miss," he confessed with a
grin, referring to his ignoring shouts
for Benny Goodman. "Favorites vary
considerably from one part of the
country to another."
Will likes the snow business a lot
he said, but living out of a trunk has
its disadvantages. "Especially," he
laughed, "when the trunk doesn't
show up." He added that a normal
life is impossible. "But right now it
isn't the hours that bother me, it's

Hollywood Movie Studio Visited
By Russian Transpolar Fliers

LOS ANGELES, July 17.-(')-
Three Russian trans-polar fliers didl
today what most other visitors want
to do-they met Shirley Temple.
Shirley was on hand at her studio
to greet Mikhail Gromoff, Andrei Yu-
mosheff and Sergei Danilin. She ac-
companied them on part of a tour of
the lot to see how the movie wheels
go round.
Eddie Cantor, filming a comedy
greeted the trio and they grinned,
when he attempted to explain what}
he was doing. With the fliers, as in-
terpreters, were Constantin'e C. Ou-
mansky, charge ,d'affaires of the So-
viet Embassy in Washington, and
Grigori Goghman, Soviet consul gen-
eral at San Francisco.
Movieland turned on the glamour
for the Soviet heroes, but they showed
more interest in things mechanical

than in girls beautiful.
When Shirley Temple met them,
she exclaimed "congratulations" and
was rewarded with wide grins as the
Russians clicked their heels and
bowed from the waist.
Gregory Ratoff, Russian actor-di-
rector, talked with the aviators half
an hour. When they were leaving,
Ratoff told them he'd look them up
next time he visited Moscow.
"I'll just ask for the Polar fliers,"
he said.
"That may be many people," said
Gromoff significantly._
