Jus[ and fair r+::q,portionulent of the sta:e, aud uuemployment relief, were the l,rin*'ipal p:anks on which Omer N. Custer, I:epuhtican candidate for gov- ernrw, today officially opened his cam+ paisa. In honor of the occasion. Mr. Oas tcr's home-town folk were hosts to thousands of his friends from all se: lions of the state, who came hy train. by automobile and bus to hear him enunciate his attitude on the issues of the campaign. There were many the audience who have known Mr. Custer since lg4, when he came here to make Gatesburg his home. Abnve all the issues of the cam paisa. Mr. Custer unqualifiedly d clared "les government in business and mnre business in government" to be the greatest iue of the campaign. "'l'i+ore are s,,me, I know, who think that tie prnhibition question Is the mosl imp, rtant issue," he continued.

In discussing the plight of agrlcul turn, Mr. Custer. si,aking as an own er and operator of farm lands, de+ elated that "politics can offer NO panacea for the farmer's Ills, but pub- lie administration can aid him by re- ducing taxes and by sympathetic and helpll co-operation. "Deflation came to agriculture long before It affected other groups." he said. "When Industry and business were enjoying their greatest prosperity and when the aecurtty market had reached heights never dreamed of be+ fore, the farmer was feeling the pinch of poverty." Mr. Cter said. +'One of the underlying causes of the present dpresslon was poverty on the farm. Nearly one-third of our population live on farms. There can be NO enduring prosperity In this country as long am this large portion of our population has NO share In it." Speaking of relief of unemployment, Mr. (ster asserted that "the most pressing need of the day is employ- ment for thousands of men and wom- ea who have been thrown out of work due to the industrial depression. "There la something wrong with an economic system which periodically turns men willing to work out into the cold without s means of liveli- hood," he continued. "But you cannot cure this condition merely by passing new laws or by creating new commis loss. Industry and business must find the solution. Government should give them every encouragement In thle effort. It can co-operate with them by assisting in adopting pollOca d- signed to minlmlse unemploymt in the future and offer protection for the unemployed, and tt can help by remov- ing handicaps which Impale prO "I am deeply Interested in thl prob- lem. It affects the very foundation of our society and civilization." On reapportionmmL Mr. Custer took the stand that Chicago should be given popular representation in one house of the general assembly, and lhnlted in the other. "It must be manifest to anyone who looks at the prohlem squarely that until some plan is agreed upon for a balance of power between Cook noun+ ty and the rest of the state, NO legl latlve reapportionment ca be aeeom. pllshed," he Bald.

IIII The danger of suddenly becoming aware of a new notion and taking it to extremes issomething hard- ly less in people of mature age than is young peo- ple, and more strange still, is not less at all in com- munities than in individuals. Thus thee is the likelihood that the insistence up- on the interdendence of states and communities, which is being heard from all quarters today, may become detrimental to more obvious needs and methods. Interdependence in finance and industry is chiefly a matter of co-ordinating financial, meg-.. sures, output and consumption. It is dangerous to iump at conclusions that com- plication should be heaped upon complication in the matter of transferring goods here and there without adequate reason and so multiplying their final cost to consumer reducing purchasing power. speedily so that more attention ma be given to widening roads and sep grating grades where traffic densit requires greater highway ctency.
