G00DIS0N TO KEEP CHEESE IMRYGPEN Gouverneur, Dec. 28 — For the first time since it was built the Goodison cheese fatcory in Elm- dale near here will continue to op- erate throughout the winter, W. O. Goodison has announced. The Goodison factory, which was huilt about five years ago, has al- •ways closed: down during the -win- ter months, but this year the cheese making will continue, though on a different schedule, during the winter months'. At present the cheese is being made every qther. day instead of daily as is the case during the summer. The cheeses made at the Goodi- son factory are small, being twelve ^pound family twins. Only wash ||ur&_ cheeses are. being made at «presentr--tlx6ug& sage cheese Was Jmade up until November. The manufacture of this was stopped because of the lack of green alfal- fa which is used for- giving the cheese the mottled, green, appear- ance; The alfalfa is fresh cut each morning, being ground and the juice pressed out. Thirty dairymen are at present taking their milk to the Goodison •factory which was paying at the time of the last checks ?1.12 per 100 pounds of milk averaging four per cent butterfat. Most of the cheese made at the Goodison plant is disposed of through Syracuse. The Cream-of-the-Valley cheese factory in North Gouverneur will also continue to operate on alter- nate days throughout the winter, Atlee F. Todd,.owner and cheese- maker said yesterday. Mr. Todd usually operates his factory during the winter months. The cheeses made at this plant art mostly.flat •40-pounders. • .At present 33 faring ers are drawing ,to : the-' factory an\ average of §,100 pounds of\ milk daily.. In the-summer the average intake is about double-this figure.

Wfa.Patchogne.N.r.l Hector Montsion Begins Training For Dog Sled Race Massena, Dec. 28 — Hector Montsion of Cornwall, with five German Police dogs hitched to a sled came to Massena Satur- day to visit his friend Stiles Finnegan, Andrews Street. He crossed the St. Lawrence river on the railroad route, and ar- rived in the village Saturday afternoon. He left Massena early as the snow was rapidly melting. Rain then fell, the soft snow dissolv- ing like sugar, and Mr. Mont- sion and his dogs had to spend the night at the Clayton Sheets home, East Orvis Street road. A truck was procured on Christ- mas day and the dogs and sled were hauled to Hogansburg where they were ferried across to Cornwall. Mr. Montsion's hobby is train- ing sled dogs. He has 25 ani- mals and is putting Ms best ones in shape to compete in the dog sled races to be held this winter in Cornwall. The five he had here were all pure-bred German Police. <\$>- -4> 1933MASSENA FOOTBALL LIST IS ANNOUNCED Coach Jerry Donnelly Gives Schedule For Next Year —Carthage High Includr Massena, Dec. 28—'Terry\ Don- nelly; football coach of Massena high school has announced that the high school • authorities have signed contracts with the Garth- age high school authorities which calls for a home and home foot- ball game between the two schools for the next two seasons. The first game of this series will be played in. Massena on October 21 next year and the se- cond game will be played in Car- thage the following fall. The two teams .were to have met two years ago but the game was can- celed the week of the game as the Carthage authorities thought that the Massena team was too strong for the Carthage 11 to en- counter. Since that time the Car- thage teams have been strength- ened considerably and are rated with the best high school teams of the state. Negotiations are under way to secure a game with Herkimer high-school to be played in \Mas- sena\ but nothing definite had been heard. Mr. Donnelly stated that he expected that the season would open- with a game against St. Marys of Ogdensburg and close with' Vocational high. Only six games will be played during the season'as has been the custom in the past two years. . The tentative schedule for \next seasoie'. is: September 23, St. Mary's at Massena, September '30, Watertpwn high at Massena; Her- kimer -at Massena\ (pending) Oc- tober 7, October -14; Central High at Massena, October 21, Carthage at Massena, October 28, \Voca- tional High at Massena. These dates may be changed later al- though it is probable that the games will be played on the given dates. As now planned all games will be played at home and the sche- dule will contain five major game with only one a minor one, that against St. Marys. Coach Don- nelly will only have three veter- ans to prepare for this tough schedule as all other regulars will graduate in June. The only exper- ienced men back for next season is Captain-elect Vallance Higley Albert Wolstenholme and Philip Mittiga. The regulars of last years team who are graduating or will be ineligible by the new age rule are: Lyman Harris, Harold Man- ning, \Frank Rooks, Francis Al- guire, Steve Medve, John Medve, Reginald Jarvis, Sam Agresta, Lyle Vilnave and Patrick Trim- boli. Knights Templar To Attend Rites Canton, Dec. 28—L. L.

LISBON YOUNG PEOPLE GIVE PLAY FRIDAY Christmas Pageant Present- ed At First Congregation- al Church; Crowd At- tends Program Lisbon, Dec. 2S—The Christmas exercises, held In the First Congre- gational church in Lisbon last Fri- day evening were largely attended, the church building being filled. A beautifully adorned and illumi- nated Christmas tree was located near the platform. At the close of the exercises Santa Claus ap- peared and distributed presents to the children. Great credit is due the committee in charge for the success of the affair. The services opened with a pro- gram of recitations, songs and a playlet, followed by a pageant en- titled, \The Adoration of the Kings and Shepherds.\ The pageant opened when two young ladies, dressed In white, representing angels, carrying tall lighted candles, with measured steps, lighted candles in the win- dow sills of the church. Then followed eleven young laides in white, with lighted candles, who formed a cross of light at the head of the center aisle for the reading of the Scripture by the pastor. After this, prelude, fourteen young ladies in white, formed a processional as the choir sang \Oh Come All Ye Faithful.\ On the platform were, \Mary Joseph and two angels,\ guarding the manger, about whom the angels gathered forming a semi-circle of light, as a lullaby was sung by Priseilla Nor- throp, after which the choir to toned \Silent Night,\ to-the strains of the violin.'played by Robert Rowell. .?V.' •* As the tune\ changed to \While Shepherds Watched their Flock,\ four pairs of \angels\ left their positions and escorted the three Shepherds and Shepherd boy bear- ing a lamb to the central group, where they knelt in an. attitude of worship. The boy presented the lamb to Joseph. AH were in appro- priate costume. The Shepherds then removed the screen from the throne chair, which Mary ascended, during which Mrs. Wimble and Mr. Nor- throp sang \The First Noel.\ As the men of the choir sang \ We Three Kings of Orient Are\ four pair of angels escorted \The Three Kings,\ attired in garments of rich material, attended by pages, carry- ing their trains, up to the alter, where they presented \their gifts to the \Virgin and\ Child.\ Mrs. Wimble sang \Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne,\ and as the choir sang the \Sanctus\ all knelt in adoration. This was followed by the Benediction. To the strains of \Hark the Herald Angels Sing;\ the recessional took place. One of the features was an elec- tric star which shone down over the virgin. It was a very impres- sive presentation by the cast of 29 young people -who took their parts well. The names appeared in last Friday's issue. Miss Anna Mullen was at the piano and Mrs. Kenyon directed the choir. Mrs. Everret Fields was in charge of the pro- gram.

The happy young cou- ple left here on an extended mo- tor trip immediately following the ceremony. Some Prices Likely to Decline Further Says Cornell Agriculturalist This is another arttola in the ser- ies by Prof. George F. Warren, of Cor- nell University, recently •printed, in the Dairymews League Netcs. Some Price* Yet to Decline Because of severe unemployment, some -workers are working for ex- tremely low wageB, but it Is not t o be expected that the general wage level will decline to the price level. The long-tlmo tendency is for wages to rise as the output per worker increases. Whenever the debts are liquidated so that busi- ness can proceed, wages will be far above prewar. Interest rates will be much below prewar for safe securities, but a large part of the business will be on such a precarious basis that, for some years, rates for agricul- ture and industry may be high. In- terest payments on bank deposits will be decidedly reduced. It will be impossible .for life insurance companies, universities, hospitals and other institutions that depend on investments to keep up their in- comes. Life insurance rates \will probably rise. The average size of policies will ba reduced. The size of fire insurance policies will be reduced, losses will be in- creased, and rates probably will be raised. Innumerable prices which have not declined will fall. Some of these are freight rates, telephone charges, price of newspapers, doc- tors* fees, dentists* fees, and tele- graph, charges. Large numbers of corporations will disappear by bankruptcy or by combination, to avoid bankruptcy. Wholesale writing down of the capital of industrial plants, farms, and city real estate will be neces- sary. Costs of distribution will grad- ually decline so that prices paid to farmers will again come into ad- justment with the prices which they pay. Much of this can be done in a half-dozen years. Prob- ably it can be completed in a gen- eration. Some basic commodity, prices have fallen too low even for the conditions and will rise. Many Remedies Will be Tried. Innumerable measures -will be tried in attempts to hold up prices of this or that 'thing. Tariffs, bount- ies, farm boards, domestic allot- ments, restrictiong. on trade be- tween states under, sanitary and other guises',, pools, gentlemen's agreements, and many others will continue to be tried. Some of these may do a little good, but they will continue to result in disillusion and disappointment. Maintaining the present price of gold means bring- ing the whole debt and price struc- ture down. To attempt to hold each individual thing v.y and yet bring down the whole is like sink- ing a ship but attempting to hold up each rivet and doorknob in it. Nothing is gained by minimizing the gravity of the situation. Repeat- ed confidence statements cannot change the facts. They discredit leadership and cause losses to in- numerable individuals through false hopes. While the country has never before experienced as great deflation as we are now attempting, we have had experiences which in- dicate the probable length of the deflation disease. It usually takes six or seven years to go far enough with the bankrupting process so that construction can begin, and it takes many more years fully to complete the process. The Cost of Bankruptcy If we are -going through with deflation, debt adjustment commis- sions are desirable to operate for a number of years. The legal sys- tem of writing down debts works badly endugh when only a few bankrupt properties are thrown on the market. It destroys values for both the creditors .and lenders -when applied in a -wholesale way. A creditor often takes over a home or a farm, keeps it in hopeB of a sale until the carrying charges eat up much of the value.* In the mean- time the property depreciates. Fin- ally, in despair, a shoestring sale is often made to a less desirable buy- er than the dispossessed owners. Debt adjustment commissions should study each case and make recommendations for settlement for all creditors. Such recommen- dations from a disinterested party Would save many owners and help many lenders, and would keep many of the cases out of >t|ie courts. If the government lending agencies wish to lend more money, they will do more good by taking; up the safer part of the underlying mortgages in such cases ; than by direct loans to the lending corpor,-> ations which do not get a t the root of the trouble. While it is not the purpose of this discussion to consider what the individual can -do for himself, I should like to insert one piece of advice to the millions of farmers and city home-owners who. are los- ing their homes and lifetime, sav- ings. If one has a good farm, it seems to me thatthe best thingto do is to retain possession, of i t \as long as possible, in the hope tliat some temporary rise in prices or. possibly a monetary change will enable him to keep the property. If he gives up, the savings are surely gone. He has little to lose from holding on as long as any slight chance remains. The man who has failed in busi- ness or is out of work is blamed for it, and he often blames* him- self. This is adding insult to in- jury. Most o£ the failures are not due to uhsound business but to unstable money, for which no in- dividual is to blame. The farmer or business man who has failed should not be despondent or com- mit suicide. He should feel like a man who has just gone through a tornado, stripped of his property but escaped with his life. His fam- ily and friends should treat him accordingly. It is not improbable that the high value of gold will result in discoveries of it, so that a later •generation will have inflation. The general attitude of the pub- lic seems to be to prefer to write everything down in terms of gold rather than raise the price of gold. The 6train on public credit to feed unemployed pei'BonB and the social confusion from such gen- eral bankruptcies may make it impossible to complete the pro- cess. No such violent deflation has yet been carried through by any modern nation. If the process is carried through, a new generation can be prosper- ous—except as foolish laws remain to plague it. Any price level is satisfactory after business is ad- justed to it. Reflation The effect of rising prices is the same regardless of the cause. If for any reason the price level is restored, it does not mean that all prices will rise equally. Many pric- es have not declined, or have de- clined little. Restoring the price level would relieve them of the necessity of declining. The major ones are debts and taxes. If com- modity prices were raised, buying would begin because rising prices cause buying. Jobs would be avail- able. Houses would be in demand. The debts and taxes on the hous- es and farms could be paid, and the debts would not have to be cut by bankruptcy. The former amount of life in- surance would be desired. Many charges, such as freight rates, doctors' fees, telephone rates, and the like, are already ad- justed to the price level that would be established. They would not rise, but would be relieved from falling. Costs of distribution would rise very little. Therefore prices paid to farmers and other producers would rise much more than retail prices. This would bring farm prices into adjustment with other prices. It is sometimes said that two steps are necessary, first re- store the price level, and second, restore the relationships of farm prices to other prices. If the first step is taken, the second follows automatically. Prices of basic commodities such as copper, coriij wheat and cotton, would rise very decidedly because they are so far below the- price level that would be restored. The declines in values of homes and farms would he stopped. In generla, the prices that have not yet declined would be relieved from declining, and those that have declined would be restored. Heavy Responsibility Rests on Farmers Probably nothing is more univer- sally wished for than a rise in com- modity prices. We are willing to have the Farm Board buy wheat and cotton, pile tariff on tariff, lend billions of government money—all in the hop'e that commodity prices may rise. But when any proposal is put forward that will raise the whole price level, it is commonly considered sacrilegious. There is probably no other subject on which so many people have formed pos- itive convictions without scientific evidence. It is the responsibility of farm organizations to give con- sideration to the various possible methods of procedure. When a city is on fire, there are only two ways to proceed. One is to let it burn itself out and get ready for the next generation to build a new city; the other is to attempt to put out the fire, even at the risk of some damage from wa- ter. Perhaps I should mention a third way of trying to dispose of it, by saying that it does not exist. Since the general level of com- modity prices is the reciprocal of the value of money, there is no way to raise the price level except as the value of money declines, or is lowered by law. •What Stabilization Means. Stabilizing the commodity price level does* not mean tha,t any single commodity will be free from fluctu- ations in price due to the supply of-it-or the demand for it. It does mean that commodity. prices as a whole may he freed from being swept \Up or down as a mass due either to\ world supply of gold or frantic changes in the demands for it. There are\ many proposals for limited or complete stabilization. (To be Continued.)

Discovery of oil on disintegrating ice a little below the bridge Mon- day caused an inspection and sug- gestion was made, that it had been frozen into the ice in the cold period of a week ago, and disclosed itself in the warm spell of Sun- day and Monday. As the point where the oil was found on the ice apparently could not be the location of any missing motor truck, searchers under Trooper L. J. Robinson began look- ing in the water on the upstream side, where a motor truck could plunge down &• bank. Grappling hooks located something in the water very Quickly which, was too heavy to be brought to the sur- face. A tow car was called for and in a short time the right front wheel of the truck was brought to the surface and a little later the truck was identified as that \belonging to Frye. A cap, recognized as his, was found \in the cab and also a rain- coat. The truck was in low gear and the cab -doors closed. The truck was upside down on the river \bed. The radiator was bent back to the motor, the right front wheel brok- en and there was some'other dam- age to the iront. The truck was towed to the Central garage. The Oswegatchie river is mostly free from ice now and grappling will be continued to locate the body. The truck plunged down an em- • bankment 12 feet high, but left practically no traces of its descent. Both sides of the bridge have been inspected for traces of an accident several times since the disappear- ance.
