He further charg'ed that the Demo- crats are spreading misleading propa- ganda throughout the state in the at- tempt to discredit the Langer adminis- tration. He said that on July 31, 1934, the state treasury had a t~alance of $1";,099,000, in spite of the fact that Olson, when he became acting" gover- nor, claimed there was not enough money in the state treasury for postage. Bangert criticized the state supreme court for taking such a long time to declare Langer ousted from office be- cause of a "disability", in view of the fact that the judgment had been en- tered shortly after the trial. Discusses Taxation Making a few introductory remarks Ettestad declared the common system of taxation should be altered to make taxation more equitable. He said tax- ~tlon i~ absolutely necessary, but it should be shifted so that the man most able should pay them. He advance~ ~.~ ta~ersonai prop- :t!rt~ ~axes; arguing that the burden ~eh ~tax would fall on everyone and would not be so hard to bear. Ettestad reviewed the fight that had been waged in the last session of the state legislature to put through cer- tain taxation measures which would lighten the burden of the real estate taxpayer. He mentioned the inherit- ance tax and the income tax whic!3 met so much opposition, and the 12 ~i- utilities tax which is now being fought in the courts. PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH • • Rev. Jas.

North Dakota wheat farmers who are taking part in the adjustment program will get $14.503,811 in bene. fit payments this fall, according to word from AA.. headquarters in Washington. Th~ pa)nnent includes the second instal;ment on the 1933 crop and the firs~ instalhnent on the 1934 crop. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19th, 1931 CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE SHELTERBELT AS DROUGHT RELIEF MEASURE PLANNED general southerly direction well int the Panhandle of Texas, a distance or about 1000 miles. The strip is 100 miles wide. The western limit, as de- termined by sufficient past success in making trees grow, to give a reason- able guarantee of further success un- der this project, is tentatively a~ follows: Starting approximately at Mohall and Minot, southward to the east side of the Missouri River at Wash- burn, thence along the Missouri to Chamberlain, S. Dak.; thence across the river through Gregory and Tripp counties and on "hard ground" along the south Dakota-Nebraska line and southwestward to Alliance,-Nebr., but avoiding all extensive sandhill areas i which are primarily grazing land (a considerable area east of the Nebrask~ sandhills, will be included): beginning again south of the North Platte River at Oshkosh, Nebr., through Julesburgl and Wray, Colo., thence to Sharon i .Springs, Kans., Garden City and I.i- beral; thence a little west of south approximately to Amar'~~ Conditions to the east have been con- sidered, it being seemmg~[y fin~esir- able to go into the region of ~ery productive lands, where already pri- vate effort has developed a vast num- ber of groves and windbre3ks. In short, the location is where it is thought that the tree-planting will do the most good. The area chosen is reasonably productive, yet one which is so subject to intermitten~ drought, and so young in its settlement, that private tree planting thus far has had no appreciable effect on the uninter- rupted sweep of the wind~, nnd upon the general living conditions. With all of these points to take inta con- sideration, there will, naturally, be divergence of opinion as ~.o the "bes~" location. But it should be evident to anyone that even this 100-mile strip presents an enormous undertaking and that this cannot reasonably be ex- panded to include more territory at the present time. About 10 to 15 percnt less were hatched in North Dakota than were hatched in 1933. able prices for well-finished dressed turkeys are expected Thanksgiving market. ~" LYRIC THUR., FRI., SAT., OCT. 18.19"20 Matinee 2:30 p. m.

Several things enter into this: First of all the consumers ability to buy,--Second the supply, and Third the quality of the Turkey itself. 1._As far as buying power goes; it is our believe it is so~e" what better than last year; there has been more employment ie the East and at a little higher rate of wages. 2. As to the number of Turkeys raised compared to last year we heax a lot, of talk .of less Turkeys in the country; this maY hold good in this particular locality; but a few large Turkey growers in other states tan easily offset our shortage here. The feed shortage; and high priced feed is going to caUSe a lot of thin ~and imature birds to be sold; and may have a depreS" sing effect on the market. Our suggest~an is to examine your flock carefully right away and separate them into several tots; as to maturity size, etc. star~ feeding a good fattening ration at once to those Birds you phn # marketing for Thanksgiving.--This you may think is too costlyI 'but !our firm believes it will @ay you; even if you have to buY sl the feed~DO NOT make the mistake to market a lot of thilb imature Bh'ds. .4/ good fattening ration is Equal parts of Ground c°r~.I Ground Oats, Middlings, Meat Scraps, Bran and 4½% Bonem~" and 1% Salt. Feed this in hoppers to allow all Turkeys to eat at the saute time;i but arrange hoppers so that Birds can not get into them, b~t must eat from openings on sides; consumption of feed maY be stimulated by feeding a wet mash once or twice a day.
