Unless one is wealth} or lives in
a pnrt of the country where homes
are spacious, there is always the
problem of increasing the sleeping
accommodations in the small home.
With rents still high, the average
family must use practically every i
room for a sleeping room. And
many letters come to me asking for

we must use the living room for

this how can we increase the sleep-

that our younger sister may still
have a room which is not visibly a

callers? Please do not suggest a
folding couch or davenport, as the
room is not large enough for thin."
A folding crib could be placed In
one bedroom, to accommodate I lie

Since you do not wish to have one
of the folding davenports, by all
means think about a folding table

the least semblance of a bedroom.
These fable beds are not as well

they deearve to be. Folded, they

Loans To Private Firm Not
Paid Back Says Report.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Feb. ti.—
A report just issued by Governor
Hyde on production operations of the
prison shirt factory at the Missouri
frtate penitentiary, shows great dis-
crepancies between the quantity of
material purchased and the number
of shirts turned out, and a connec-
tion between a former superinten-
dent of the company and a compet-
The report revealed that Henry
Miller, former superintendent of the
prison factory was In the employ of
the D. M. Oherniau Manufacturing
company of Jefferson City and was
receiving a salary from the state at
the same time.
A discrepancy between the amount
of cloth purchased and the amount
of cloth required for the number of
shirts produced, was found amount-
ing to 96,729 yards. According to
the records of the prison factory, it
was operating at a loss, although
there were no labor charges.
An audit of the records and an
examination of correspondence has
been made by J. M. McTaggart &
Company of Kansas City.
Numerous transactions between
the Oberman company and the peni-
tentiary factory are disclosed In re
port, among them "loans" or mate-
rial to Oberman, one of which has
not been returned, according to the
E. A. Hartmau, chief examiner for
MacTaggart, asserted: "We discov-
ered from correspondence records
during the course of our investiga-
tion that Miller was during our audit i
period also serving the D. M. Ober-
man Manufacturing Co.. a competing
shirt manufacturing company. We
were not able to learn the exact na-
ture of this employment, but from
the records that we examined Jt j
would appear that Miller had super- i
lntendency of the Joplin factory and
possibly another small ractory within
this state, Imth belonging to Ober-
man. It does not appeal that this
situation was any secret around the
ractory, or that the penitentiary of-
f lela Is or prison board were not ac-
quainted with such service during
the period under review."
The correspondence found, accord-
ing to the reports, "reveals a close
working relationship between Ober-
man and the prison factory. Miller in
said to have allowed purchase con-
tracts for the prison factory to be
placed by the private concern In ac-
cordance with its judgment.
"Purchases were pooled, apparent-
ly to get better prices at the mills,
but without regard always on Mil-
ler's part as to whether or not he
needed the goods."
That Miller on Dec. 9. 1920.
"loaned"' to Oberman 80,356 yards of

14 cents a yard, a total of $12,509.85.

SO,464 yards, which cost 8 cents per
yard, or $7,237.14. Is charged in the
report. The loss on this transaction,
according to the audit, was $5,272.71.
In June. 1920, the report shows
another "loan" to Oberman of lf .-

cents a yard, or $1,657.o<>. No re-

for and by the people.
The following communication to
the Courier News, of Fargo, N. D..
by a farmer of that state, is worthy
of your careful consideration. This
farmer has evidently been sitting up
nights and thinking for himself.
Have read and studied a sreat
deal about the different kinds of
farm organizations, like the Equity,
the Grain Growers, the Wheat Grow-
ers and the Farm Bureau. I believe
to a certain extent that they are all
Kood and more or leas beneficial to
the farmers. When these organiza-
tions *et so strong that they begin
to pinch the toes of big business.
then the big interests call a con-
ference and invite the leaders of the
different farm organizations.
As it is today most all the power
ii vested with the leaders of the
farm organizations. With the lead-
ers carrying that power they can be
honest or dishonest, do as they wish,
sell your organization or turn it
over to the big Interests, and thi;t
Is why your organizations have not
proved beneficial to the farmer. As
long as big business can get control
of the leaders the big boys have you
where they want you. and as long
as they can keep the different farm
organizations fighting each other
they have accomplished their job.
Why should the Wheat. Growers
fight the Farm Bureau and the Grain
Growers fight the Farm Bureau, etc.
The men and women that are paying
their dues and financing their or-
ganization have very little to say.
That is left to a few. the leaders.
Gustafson tells the Grain Growers to
stay out of politics and as I under-
stand It, Mr. Howard, head of the
Farm Bureau, influenced the Farm
Bureau to pupport Senater Cummins
of Iowa and I think you all have
read about the famous Esch-Cum-
mins railroad bill. It Is all right
for the leaders to be in politics but
not the members. I say, No! I say
all of us sbould be in politics.
Now we. the people of the United
States, live under the laws of the
United States. I^aws are nothing
but rules. If congress passes a law
we, the people, have to abide by it,
do we not?
And I say to you all If we, the
farmers and laborers, are going to
get. justice, we have got to come to-
gether. all the different farm organ-
izations and all the different labor
organizations. When we do that the
big fiRht Is over. The farmers have
10.000,000 votes and the different
labor organizations have 5.000.000
votes, and If I am not mistaken
there were about 25,000,000 votes
cast in the last presidential election.
So you see the farmers and laborers
hold the majority of tho votes in
the United States.
If I were to belong to all of the
different farm organiaztions it would
be in the neighborhood of ten. It
would cost me about one hundred
dollars per year to belong to all of
them and ten meetings to attend,
whereas It all could be done in one.
Why not have one big organiza-
tion like the bankers, the merchants
and all of the big interests? Why
can not we farmers and laborers do _
th, same, or are we so selfish and norahT'mnkl'ng'Republli'n raemhe'r
