United States, reports. -Dr. C.V'
Galpin of the department of agri
culture,, who. has just .returned
from a study of farm -life abroad
"The common -idea .thatfEuro
peaa farmers live in hovels in pov
erty' is no longer accurate." Dr
Galpin saysv "Conditions -are bad
in some cases, -as they are in some
cases' in the ' United States, .but
there is a great number of farm
ers abroad whose living standards
are comparable with what we have
in this country." -
Dr. Galpin's observations were
made on the basis of comparison
all 'the newest creations
with conditions 30 years ago when
he made a similar .study of Euro
pean farm, living standards. Ho
visited 13 countries-, in hi survey,
and obtainedfirst-hand .informa
tion of - living conditions on all
types .of , farms.. . ,
V"Eropean, farmers.,, he : said,
"are becoming consumers of more
and better goods. .They are de
manding : greater economic, recog
nitlon and are calling for reforms
through . legislation the same as
farmers In this country. They are

URGE TAX CUT REFUND
' ' (OoBtinl from p( 1.)
it was estimated would be collect
ed. It was estimated in June that
the surplus for this fiscal year,
ending next. June 30, would onl
amount to $185,000,000.
-Since the opening of this fiscal
year however, there have been
many signs -pointing to a. much
larger surplus than was estimated
and only a month ago Senator
Simmons of North Carolina,
spokesman for senate democrats
on state legislation,, demanded an
immediate tax cut of $500,000,
000. Corporation taxes Jiave account
ed mainly for the increase in tax
receipts over estimates, although
Individual returns also have been
higher than was counted on. Con
gress ordered a heavy cut in the
individual income taxes last
spring, but despite this, the re
ceipts were greater than a year
ago when the higher rates pre
vailed. Although individual in
come rates were reduced by con
gress, it increased corporation lev
ies from 12 to 13 per cent to
offset the repeal of the capital
In the first four months of this
fiscal year, income tax receipts
totaled SS80.211.540, compared
with $4 69,617,000 received in that
period a year ago. Miscellaneous
taxes which would not share in
the proposed refund, however,
hav amounted to only $230,165,-
000 for the first four months this
year, compared with $343,930,000
collected a year ago.
Indications Point to Still
Higher Totals in Follow
October exports . from the port
of Portland reached the record to
tal of $10,789,792, a substantial
increase over the September fig
ure of $9,668,798. A large part
of the October figure represents
wheat shipments, which totaled
5,166,235 bushels valued at $7,-
General cargo exports during
the month, made up; chiefly of
fresh apples, dried and canned
fruits, and other 'products of Ore
gon and Washington farm lands
moving, directly to foreign mar
kets, totaled $2,764,181.
Indications are that exports
during November and 'December
will be high and that a round to
tal of $70,000,000 for the year.
1926, a record amount, will be
Surveys Indicate Surplus of
2 to 4 Million Bales at
Cotton is keening close com
pany with apples these days as a
crop in which over production is
great and therefore prices weak.
Government surveys indicates 2 to
4 million bales more than the
world's markets can normally ab
sorb at prices netting grower a
reasonable return. A slump " of
around $500,000,000 in the pur
chasing power of the south is said
to be inevitable. . with resultins
disastrous effect on other indus
tries in the cotton belt.
At a meeting in Memphis of
govornors of states, heads of cor
porations, bankers, U. S, senators,
and business men on Oct. 12, a
resolution was passed demanding
that 4 million bales be held in
storage, this enterprise to be fi
nanced by1 the Federal Interme
diate land banks.
Lrftst week in the south was de
clared "acreage reduction week'"
and a drive was made for a 25
reduction in cotton acreage for
next season. It is expected that
growers who fall to make exnens
es this year will automatically be
compelled to reduce plantings
Business men of the south, are
holding out hope that the fact that
cotton is cheap will cause it to
enter Into many industries in
which: its use is imDOBsible excent
at low prices,, thus-taking car 61
much of the surplus. j

Housewives May Effect Big
Saving: Buying .Tinned
Goods. by the Case
The housewife should t, keep In
mind the dates November 1 ; to
20 which mark National Canned
Foods week. It is important to
her because of the many excellent
bargains In , prepared foods that
will be offered during that time.
One of J the " best of economies is
buying in : bulk, and during this
time cases of canned foods will be
sold at big reductions. Take the
opportunity to stock up on staples
and also to make the acquaintance
of such canned foods as you may
not have tried. If you don't care
to buy an entire case of .one kind
of food, the grocer will sell brok
en cases, combining, several foods,
giving-you, the. advantage of the
reduction-on the case.
Spinach Rich in Minerals
The adult as well as the grow
ing child should eat plenty - of
Bpinach. It contains an unusually
high percentage' of mineral salts,
particularly Iodine. It is the lack
of iodine, throat specialists say,
which is one of, the prime causes
of goitre. Spinach, too, is a tonic
food for t he .digestive tract and is
known among the French peasant
ry as "the poor man's broom" for
its cleansing qualities. All the
nuisance of washing and cutting
is done, plus even the preliminary
boiling, when spinach is bought
in canned form. -With good seas-
oning, the housewife can make
dishes of infinite variety with
canned spinach. When heating it,
be sure-that the liquor from the
can cooks almost entirely away,
for valuable minerals are dissolv
ed tin the water. When It cooks
away, these minerals stay in the
food and aren't poured down the
drain with the water.
There are two ways of making
pumpkin pies. You will probably
want to try, both of them during
the Thanksgiving season, though
prepared pumpkin is available at
any time of the year and you may
just as well have pumpkin pie for
Easter or Fourth of July. One
way of making it is the old fash
ioned way, fairly strong in flavor.
Heat a cup of milk, two cups of
canned pumpkin, one cup of sugar,
a half cup of molasses, two tea
spoons of. cinnamon, a teaspoon
each of ginger and salt, and a half
teaspoon each of nutmeg and all
spice. Pour on two slightly beaten
eggs and fill the baked crust. Heat
ing the ingredients before adding
them to the egg keeps the crust
from becoming soaked. This
quantity makes two pies.
Of more delicate flavor, and
equally good, is the filling made
with a cup and a half of canned
pumpkin, two-thirds of a cup of
white sugar, one teaspoon of nut
meg, grated, a half teaspoon salt,
two slightly leaten eggs and two
cups of milk. If you like your
filling very rich, use' part cream.
Tuna fishing is an exciting sport
even when done as a regular Job.
The "albacore" as the tuna was
first named, is a swift and power
ful swimmer, hard to catch, and
efforts to take it in nets have so
far tailed. The fishermen go out
between June and September and
when a school of albacore is
found, begin throwing handfuls ot
small fish overboard. la -a few
minutesftthe albacore becomes so
excited that they will leap up to
catch the little fish. Immediately
the fishermen drop baited hooks,
hauling in the albacore as fast as
they can. The fish are cleaned
immediately to keep their flesh
white. At. the cannery they are
cooked whole by steam and their
natural oil, which .is not appetis
ing, is cooked off. Olive oil is
added and that Is the way we
know tuna fish as it comes canned.
The demand .1 so heavy that the
supply is usually har'd to keep up.
