ILLINOIS CORN GROWERS AGREE TO ACKNOWLEDGE LOVE AS . PAY FOR GRAIN STARVING . PEOPLE BY ROBERT FULLER (Written Specially for Recorder) Cricago 111., Feb. 2—ln less than five minutes 100,000 bushels of corn were pledged for free distribution to the starving people of Europe and the Far East. It was at the sixth annual meeting of the Illinois Agricultural Association, following an appeal by President J. R. Howard of the American Farm Bureau Federation. He asked simply that farmers of America give a part of the huge corn crop which remains unsold. * Fifty cars were pledgee! by the 111 inois members of the Farm Bureau J Federation. Telegrams were then read from Farm Bureaus in Missouri, Indianna, Ohio and Kansas announcing that farmers there were pledging another 100,000 bushels. This will make a train of 100 cars of corn in the first shipment. The movement is spreading to the whole corn belt of the middle west. Other states are expected to contribute generously.

Solved the Mystery. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
Solved the Mystery. While still a novice in the art of stenography I was called one day to take a very Important letter from the president of the firm. In my nervousness I failed to notice that there were but a few blank pages In my notebook, and as a result was compelled to write on • the cover of the book. All went smoothly in the transcription of my notes until I .reached the cover, and then try as I might I could not make out a single word. Finally in desperation I went to the president and told him of my plight He was quite kind, offering to dictate that portion of the letter over and suggested that I endeavor to read a few lines so that he might get the connection. However, this was an impossibility on my part, whereupon he began studying the little dots and dashes and suddenly blurted out: “Can It be that you are trying to read your notes upside down?" which to my great consternation and embarrassment solved the mystery instantly.—Chicago Tribune.

Copy American Methods. Four French cities where Y. W. C.YL foyers are maintained have recently put on finance campaigns in true American fashion, and have raised sums of money exceeding the most optimistic predictions, according to a Y. W. O.

FIX GERMAN INDEMNITY AT (55,500,000,000 Accord Arrived at After Dramatic Negotiations, Lloyd George Sending Ultimatum to Briand. Paris.—Coached by the premiers, the allied experts agreed on a plan for payment of the German war reparations. This plan has two features: First, Germany shall pay over fortytwo years a series of annuities ranging from 2,000,000,000 gold marks to 6.000. gold marks. Second, Germany shall pay to the allies for forty-two years a 12 V 6 per cent tax on the sum total of her export trade. There are two important observations, to make of this plan: First, it does not fix the definite total Germany must pay, and, Second, It is not effective without German consent. The experts are working out a scale for the payment of the annuities, the premiers having agreed on the principle. The scale which will probably be adopted is the following: Two billion marks gold for the next five years, 4.000. for the following five years and thereafter 0.000,000.000 for thirty-two yea...

NO “EASY HONEY” Term Is Used as a Joke Among Real Financiers. Great Wealth Seldom Gained Without Actual Hard Work, as Men in High Position Know. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
NO “EASY HONEY” Term Is Used as a Joke Among Real Financiers. Great Wealth Seldom Gained Without Actual Hard Work, as Men in High Position Know. The Ponzl case in Boston affords an excellent example of the need of a better understanding of the principles of thrift in this country, S. W. Straus, president of the American Society for Thrift, says. It is very rare that great wealth Is gained overnight There have been occasional instances where men have found gold or struck oifi or written a successful novel, or brought into being a great and useful Invention, with the result that the floodgates of money have been turned loose for them; but such Instances are of such rare occurrence that they can be eliminated as not within the range of possibilities for the average man. The processes of thrift must be fulfilled in the preparation of a successful financial career. The so-called Napoleons of finance generally meet very early Waterloo. Success in the material things of life means a slow b...

You Can’t Down the Ten Commandments [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
You Can’t Down the Ten Commandments Roger Babson, the noted business statistician and analyst, says that we owe all of our troubles of today to a lack of religion. Prosperty is based, he continues, on those fundamental qualities of faith, temperance, service and thrift which are the products of religion. True as steel. The fundamentals of a state of life that includes pmsperity, are ten commandments. But let us not forget that the ten commandments are for everybody. They are not alone for the man who toils with his hands but for the captain of industry as well. To say, as Rogers does, that our business man must see to it that the churches are strong is going only half way. Our workers, too, should see that the churches are strong and that the captain of finance and industry also obeys the ten commandments. No profiteer is fit for the kingdom of heaven. No gambler in the necessities of human existence is entitled to sit in the seat of the godly. No man who rolls up ill-gotten riches ...

Honesty in Jury Service [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 4 February 1921
Honesty in Jury Service Prohibition is sufficiently unpopular in St. Louis to make it difficult to obtain the conviction of a violator of the Volstead law by a jury. After three defendants had been acquitted there in the face of convincing evidence of their guilt the presiding judge a few days ago discharged the entire panel of 100 jurors. The situation directs attention to the mistaken conception that some men hold in regard to jury service. Though sworn'to find a verdict in accordance with the law and the evidence, they feel that they are entitled to consult their personal wishes as to whether the defendant should go free. This feeling becomes predominant when the law which the defendant is accused of violating in unpopular. Ignoring the evidence and acquitting the guilty in each case i demoraliz ing; it paves the way for similar action in cases involving other laws. The oath taken by the jurors is held lightly, the courts are brought into contempt, and public morals suffer. The r...
