LOSS OF KENYON WON'T HALT
ONWARD MARCH OF FARM BLOC
United State Senator
Arthur Capper say
farmer will soon be made
efficient salesman with
the legal right to market
his products collectively.
By Arthur Capper
United States Senator from Kansas
The loss of Senator Kcnyon in
hi .friomfment 'o the Federal
bench will in no way stop the prog
ress of the Congressional program
sponsored by the Agricultural Bloc
JThat program is going right on
and through, impelled by some
thing so high and hig and just that
be ode it the personality of leaders
and members alike of the liloc pale
into insignificance We are all
mere instruments of service to that
va-it portion of our population that
tills the soil. Our names, like the
colors of our ties, count for nothing.
Our principles count for everything.
The question of cooperative mar
keting, long kept a little Orphan
Annie standing outside on the door
step of Congress, now occupies a
position of honor in the mighty
Senate chamber With the Presi
dent of the United States formally
and officially committed to tt, and
wi'b , 'Hitherto iron-barred Senate
door ziving way before it, it is
jtte.1 i matter of a short time before
it will be written into the law of the
land The Volstead-Capper Kill will
cut the irons from the farmer's
heels and permit him to go to mar
ket alongside his neighbor and in
comparative safety from the ban
dits who would way-lay him on the
road. The American farmer can
never be an efficient ' nan of his
own products without the clear legal
right (o market them collectively.
Other measures to which the so
called Farm Bloc has given it
sanction include the Capper-Tin her
anti-gram gambling bill, bills regu
lating cold storage ami providing
for adequate control of the parking
industry, the fvipper-French truth
in fabrics lull the bill that places
a representative of agriculture on the
Federal Reserve hoard and b'lli
creating more liberal banking

there was need fur richer blood, more elaborate digestion, ami a nervo.is

digestion, line circulation, nervous control, and mental Vigor. When the
muscles gel llaliby and lose their tone the blood gets sluggish, the lungs In.j.

feeling the results at many Important points.
Now unfortunately most of out work today does not inttke SUlTlCieni

legs. We should concern ourselves with leg activity, Walking, slow running,
leg bending, and body bending, and twisting Iroin the hips ate necessary
Note how quickly rapid walking or body heinJIng ulVeets our hivnthiug, Ihe

Some of iih io,i are In lines of work which tend to contract the idlest,
round the shoulders, bring the head forward, or push the lower part of the
abdomen downwind and forward, and tints lower the tone of muscles ami
the bodily organs which are closely related to them. In such oases exercises
should be tuken to counteract these conditions. All exercise should le taken
with the head up. shoulders high, chest nosed, and back slightly arched ; when
this Is done It helps to keep the body In thes. positions.
