HOLDING EARLY PIGS FOR NEW CORN FINISH WILL NOT PAY RAISER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929
HOLDING EARLY PIGS FOR NEW CORN FINISH WILL NOT PAY RAISER Unless this year is different from any since the war , it will not pay to hold back March-farrowed pigs in order to finish them on supposedly cheap , new corn in the fall , according to figures worked out by Dr . W . E . Carroll , chiet in swine husbandry at the College of Agriculture , University of Illinois . Hog receipts- at the principal markets- are heaviest in November , December and January and the swine grower who is out to make the most money therefore will push his March pigs to market sooner than these months , he explained . . . Too many Miirch-farrowed pigs fail to make the more profitable fall market because their owners think corn is too high to justify their feeding them a full ration during the summer . They choose rather to grow pigs slowly on oats and pasture and put the last 100 pounds on them with new corn . This was especially true last summer , much to tho expense of many hog raisers . In fact , there ...
MUSSOLINI DEMANDS PARITY WITH FRANCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929
MUSSOLINI DEMANDS PARITY WITH FRANCE Stand of Premier of Italy Jolts Disarm Body. Geneva , Switzerland. 0 Representations that Benito Mussolini , premier of Italy , will insist his country have naval parity with France in any arms reduction agreement which the nations may reach have disquieted disarmament circles here . In one sense the reports of this attitude by the Italian prime minister offered the first serious prospective obstruction to a five-power naval reduction treaty which has appeared since Hugh Gibson s broaching of American proposals for naval disarmament It was said here the Italian governrnent would ask parity with France both on land and sea . French officials were represented as failing to see the . lustice of such demands and insisting for their part that extensive French colonial possessions and coasts open on two seas were sufficient reasons for maintenance of a navy superior to Italy's. So acute had the problem of satisfying Italy at least on paper begun to app...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929
The Eagle Grove , Iowa , Eagle wants Aimee McPherson of evangelistic fame to have her skirts cleaned of sensational charges that she can go on doing good and says : It certainly seems that every right-minded person cannot but hope the Rev . Aimee McPherson has told the truth , the whole truth , and nothing but the truth about her mysterious disappearance and re-appearance three years ago . If proof is developed that it is otherwise it will give a regrettable impetus to suspicion and loss of faith in human , character and fidelity generally . Mrs . McPherson s prominence and ability give unusual significance , and influence for good or ill according as she is what . she professes , or otherwise . The trial of Judge Hardy to whom she admits giving $ 2500 is likely to bring out the truth about the kidnapping story . And now they are speaking of the Great Lakes-St . Lawrence Waterway as the St . Lawrence Seaway . This carries across the idea that the ports along the Great Lakes will be ...
Danger in . Impetuous Demands for Reform " in Administration of Justice [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929
Danger in . Impetuous Demands for Reform in Administration of Justice By CHIEF JUSTICE DE XOUNG , Illinois Supreme Court THE public is being awakened to that vigilance which is the cost of good government . Still , there is a need for caution that we do not overstep ourselves . There are modern philosophers who are impatient to wipe but the restraints in law that have proved their value through the ages . On the streets and in the press almost daily there is some one who would remove the presumption of innocence from a criminal trial . Some one else wants to remove the requirement that guilt must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt . These are rules that must be retained or the administration of justice will retrograde centuries . However , I would be the last one to say that our courts are efficient , that they have kept abreast of tlie times . Take the law , for example , that makes a jury in a criminal ease judge of the law as well as the fact . This presumes that twelve men know...
School Work That Will Fit Youth for Business Is Modern Demand [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929
School Work That Will Fit Youth for Business Is Modern Demand By CAMERON BECK , New York Stock Exchange . American business wants the school to train its children according to their individual ability and wants the school to k ^ ep more closely in touch with the needs of business . Business men of America have an abiding appreciation of the public school system . Our great business leaders of today are the products of our public schools , and we know that the service of the public schools has not been in vain . Public schools , however , have a great task to perform . They must lower the output of misfits that come into business , wlro must be adjusted after they leave school . Tlie work of the business world will become much better if the children are fitted to the tasks they are to perform ; they will learn that work shall mean something more than a job , and their wage something more than money . Schools should have more and better equipment for vocational training . In each comm...

Prominent Trait of Women oiAmerica Is „ TJieir ,. ? . * Passion for Learning * ¦ . ; ^ - ^ ?&lt; By CLAUDE ANET , Noted French Editor . One sees more beautiful and beautifully dressed women in America than in Europe ; American women have a passion for learning almost , anything that is absent on this side of the Atlantic , and they have sucv ceeded in building a wall between themselves and their men folk ! The first thing that strikes one is that the men and women seem to find no pleasure in each others company . Visit the New . York restaurants and you will never see men and women together . Do the- same in Paris and you will see couples together always . In the United States , at luncheon time , there are in the restaurants tables and tables of hen parties . It is not impossible that several of the husbands concerned are at the same restaurant—they will never be at their wives tables . One of the most surprising things about American women is their passion for lectures . T...
Nobody ' s Fault but His Own if Man Fails in This Modern Life [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929
Nobody s Fault but His Own if Man Fails in This Modern Life By BISHOP B . F . P . IVINS . If a man misses his mark in life , you-can be sure it is his own fault . This in spite of the so-called , behavioristie psychology , of which we have been hearing so much-of late , telling us that we are absolutely fixed by what our inheritance arid environment have made Us and that if we knew perfectly what a man s environment and inheritance were we could plot his mental reaction and how he would respond to any given stimulus . This kind of a theory is nonsense . The psychologists are beginning to acknowledge it as nonsense . Men do not act that way . Man is responsible if he fails to come up to the mark . Man is a free agent ; in theological terminology , he has a free will . Sin is nothing more than missing the mark . There are certain overt acts which men generally agree to be sins , such as murder , stealing , lying . Then we seem to catalogue sins by degrees and some we condone , such as...
