Self-Feeder for Hogs Is New Device
The latest labor-savins device is the Self-feeder for hogs. The
picture above shows the self-feeder in action at the farm of Charles
R. Parks, near Windsors Cross Roads, Yadkin county. By using this
contraption, hogs are fed once each week instead of three times a
day. Parks built this from specification furnished by the county
agent's office. It is one of the five now in use in Yadkin county—

Washington, D. C., Dec. 28.
When the special session was call
ed six weeks ago, it became evi
dent from the first that Congress
was in a mood to assert its pre-
New Deal independence. Business
wanted relief from an ill-distri
buted tax burden and some assur
ance of a stable government pol
icy toward labor. Labor factions,
engaged in an internal row, de
manded clarification of laws af
fecting collective bargaining. Be
sides this, the longer-standing
problems of relief, reorganization
of government departments, re
gional planning, balancing of the
budget, and a threatening foreign
situation all called for timely, in
The four-point legislative pro
gram presented by the White
House which, had been prepared
during the relatively serene sum
mer months failed to click with
Congressional independents who
were in no mood to tune up the
ink-pads for another rubber
stamp session. But the working
leadership both in the House and
Senate was faced with the many
horned dilemma of having to cling
to the President's "Must" sched
ule, throttle opposition moves and
if necessary stall for time until
dependable majorities could be
swung solidly behind a more up
to-date governmental policy to
combat the politically ominous
Plans To Boost Business
Immediate plans to help busi
ness are still largely in the con
ference stage. Passage of the
Housing Bill by the House was the
first concrete step to carry out the
President's program tp stimulate
a building boom. Other moves "in
the works" will be designed to
help the railroads with higher
rates, easy credit, and recom
mended consolidations. Public
utilities may be given a breathing
spell, and the present tax struc
ture will be modified to relieve
"middle-sized" businesses of their
present oppressive burdens.
No doubt affected by the verbal
barrage from assembled business
men at the National Association
of Manufacturers convention (dis
cussed last week), the House re
fused to add another hamstring to
business when it voted to send the
Black-Connery Wages and Hours
Bill back to the Labor Committee.
House spokesmen doubted wheth
er it would ever be received. The
Bill, backed by CIO and opposed
by the powerful AFL lobby, was
killed largely through a blockade
action led by Southern Congress

among opposing Democrats and
Republicans to defeat the pet Ad

own version of the Bill and await
ed similar action by the Senate
which came nine days later. Dif
ferences between the two meas
ures are being ironed out prepara
tory to final passage and presen
tation for White House approval
sometime in early 1938 unless the
House refuses to confirm Senate
changes or if friends of*the Wages
and Hours bill carry out their
threat to scuttle Farm Relief after
their Bill, for which they traded
votes, was not passed. A veto is
also possible because of the Mc-
Nary-Boileau Amendment, which
cannot be changed in conference,
prohibiting use of retired acreage
by farmers for pasturage or for
the production of milk, meat or
Foreign Affairs in Spotlight
Lack of action last week in the
domestic scene was more than
counterbalanced by developments
in our foreign affairs. When first
reports of the Panay bombing
reached here, Japanese Ambassa
dor Hiroshi Saito rushed to the
office of Secretary Hull to present
profound regrets, offer indemni
ties and guarantees against repe
tition of such "incidents."
But this time the White House
had evidently lost patience with
the custom of present
ing mimeographed apologies after
each bombing and shooting of

to request that the Japanese For

with Emperor Hirohlto and get
some definite satisfaction.
"Son of Heaven" Gets Note
Old-school diplomats were
shocked at the unprecedented ac
tion. The Japanese Emperor, "Son
of Heaven" and 129 th lineal de
scendant of the Sun Goddess who,
according to legend, made the
world nearly 2600 years ago, Is
aloof from politics, is consulted
only at rare intervals on the most
urgent questions through the me
dium of difficult "court language"
which precludes textended discus
sion. The firm American stand
brought little results. The Emper
or was reported to have been duly
informed but no reply* was forth

An impasse was struck in the
diplomatic situation when Japa
nese military officials refused to
admit the charges of witnesses
and survivors of the Panay sink
ing that land forces had raked
the decks of the ship and ma
chine-gunned sailors and civilians
struggling in the water. Another
point was made when it was defi
nitely proved that the U. S. gun
boat was flying the Stars and
Stripes when the attack took
Field-Day for Headline Scribes
Throughout the week, the Press
has been having a field day of
"war-scare" headlines, and here,
in Washington, two Coongression

One action was to force the
Ludlow Amendment before the
House early in the January reg
ular session. This Amendment
would take away from Congress
its constitutional right to declare
war except after a national ref
erendum affirming such action
unless there was "an invasion of
the United States or its territorial
possessions and an attack upon its
citizens residing therein."
More important is the growing
opinion that the Neutrality Act, as
presently constiuted, is a failure.
Representative Maas, Minnesota,
has already proposed a resolution
to repeal the act outright. Sena
tor Lodge has written a series of
amendments to the present law
which would emasculate it until it
had practically no effect at all.
