i Does Europe I Owe United States? By Caleb Johnson We hear s great deal of talk, mostly by politicians, about the war debts owing to the United States from Europe. A lot of the talk is calculated to create the impression that we have in some way cancelled a part of these debts and that there ja danger that the balance may be cancelled. Some people contend that mi injustice would be done to the people of the United Stated by re- ducing any of these debts; others contend that we ought to wipe them all out. Before we can discuss that ques- tion intelligently—and it will be one of the things about which a lot of discussion will be spilled in and out quarters to create it. The only concession that the United States ha i made in the case of the war debts to us of the Allies is a con- cession in the rate of interest to be paid. Money raised during the war in this country by the sale of Liberty Bonds was lent to the Allies at 5 und 6 percent. As soon as it was possible, after the signing o...

The girl is hurried into an engagement with the wealthy Felix Kent. Her father, Nick Sandal, surreptiously enters the girl's home one night. He tells her he used to call her Lynda Sandal. The girl is torn by her desire to see life in the raw and to become part of her mother's society. Her father studies her surroundings. Lynda visits her father in his dingy quarters. She finds four men play- ing cards when she arrives. One of them, Jock Ayleward, h.;r father tells her, is like a son to him, but warns the girl he is a trifler. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY_. It silenced Lynda on that theme. He chuckled wickedly at her height- ening color and the lift of her chin. "Atid that's that," he said delight- edly.

THE CALDWELL NEWS MM M&; Iran Man" at 86 Special to The Caldwell News WASHINGTON, D. C., Jan. 7. (Autocaster)—Congress has again settled down to business, after its brief Christmas holiday, and every indication point.-? to the present ses- sion being a highly constructive one. Generally, business looks askance at Congress during its sittings, fearing that it will puss legislation that will throw commercial acuities out of their usual stride. The present Congress, however, is confidently expected to pass mea- sures that will mitigate the present stagnation in business, as far as log- i islation can achieve that effect. While the two major parties are still keeping up their warfare, yet neither side will fail to support any legislation that the country at large considers Item-ficial. Congress proved its willingness to forget party strife by the speed with which it ratified the moratorium, «ven if such action was accompanied by growls from members of both parties. All other details...

r. JANUARY 1*. 1W THE CALDWELL NEWS Of Farm C«mu Is Started By Tax Assessors AUSTIN, Texas, January 14—Tax •aessors began work Monday on the rtpilation of Texas' first farm cen- an , which is to be gathered annually and used for the benefit of farmers. The census was authorized by House Bill 689, enacted at the regular ses- sion of the Forty-second Legislature. Its prime purpose is for the gather- ing and dissemination of facts re- yarding the operation of farms in Texas so that farmers may be aided in production and marketing of crops. The farm census is independent of the two questions being asked by the tax assessors relative to the number of acres in cultivation and in cotton in 1930 and 1931 for the administra- tion of Texas' cotton acreage reduc- tion law, restricting the 1932 cotton acreage to thirty percent of the culti- vated land, J.

TU CALDWELL NEWS Uncle Sam's Financial Worries By Caleb Johnson The Government of the United States starts the year 1932 with a budgetary deficit of more than a thou- sand million dollars. That means that the amount of money which has been appropriated for government purposes! exceeds, by a billion dollars, in one' year alone, the total amount that can' be collected under present taxation systems. Next year will be worse, unless the new Congress does one of two things. Either expenses of the government must be cut or taxes must be in- creased. And the talk is mostly about increasing taxes. That is what the men who are running the different departments and bureaus of the Government always want to do. They do not want to reduce expenses. But, as the record showB, they are always ready to increase them. Let's look at the figures. In 1031 it cost $726,424,849.67 to run the United States of America. In 1931 the cost was $4,219,950,338.88. Government costs were multiplied nearly six times...

J. Skinner of that bureau, under whose supervision numerous experiments carried on for the past three years in nine counties of the blark-land region of the State have just been completed. These tests have demonstrated that the ad- dition of readily available nitrogen and phosphoric arid to these cotton root-rot infested soils accelerates the growth of plants, matures cotton earlier, reduces the severity of root- rot, and causes increased yields, says Doctor Skinner. The effect of fertilizer in acceler- ating maturity, in these experiments, resulted in materially higher yields at the early pickings of cotton and constituted a means of evading losses from the killing of plants by root- rot in t...
