DUNN TALKS TO INSURANCE MEN 75 American Farmers Mu tual Salesmen Attend First Annual Conference CLEAR LAKE July resentatives of the American Farmers Mutual Life Insurance company and their families numbering more than 150 per sons attended the evening ban quet of the first annual confer ence at the Wayside Inn Mori day The banquet fol lowed by a number of brief talks and joltes from the com panys district agents and sales menclosed the openingday of the twoday conference held at the Inn G H Heezen district agent Des Moines acfed as toastmaster Music during the banquet hour was furnished by the Joe Powerstrio The morning idurs were given over to introductions and a social gettogether with the seriousness of the meeting opening immediate ly after luncheon G N Netzer county Farm Bureau president in welcoming the crowd showed the need for farmers banding them selves together for future preserva tion of agricultural industry He gave examples of the couneratfve organizations of Cerro Gordo coun ty and said theywere for the pur pose of teaching each other the principals of cooperattoti Now they are largely idea la to make them cooperative ha said SB G Dunn one of the early warriors battle for coopera tive institutions in North Iowa gave a review of the situation a saw it at advoCatac a plan whereby cooperatives woul retain a small percentage of their earning to obtain funds for other projects Can Home Be The question nowup tothe Am erican people for solution ia can that American borne as we have known it be preserved and handed on to posterity or will business con ditions again revert back1 to the same condition that has existed thru all history where the mer of business man becomes theowneriofthe soil and arid womej who till it become serfs or more i on the fthat iriustV the generation that Is that question will be de lmded within the next 20 yearsEi ther a condition must be brot about where In the interchange of com modities of the things he raises lor the things he buys the farmer must get an even break or the agricultur al population must change The home owning American farmer will disappear and in his place will come a soil tiller working for wages or a small share of what he produces living humbly aud simply not as the American farmer of the last 50 years but as the beet or the cotton picker lives to day If youare to preserve the condi tion we have enjoyed in tile Missis sippi valley then the farming people must be taught to consolidate thJir resources to become business men in their own field and to provide such institutions as are necessary to enable them to liyh and prosper in their chosen occupation Kvery business enterprise that is ultimately successful has found it necessary to have ample capital to handle its business This seems to be a lesson that our agricultural people are slow to learn am more than ever convinced that whatever legislation ia enacted for theaid of theAmerican farmer must at cnlei tp the farmer himself isable to producer The agricultural bill just passed in congress is1 at least astep in the right direction Every American regardless of politicalfaith or ties should exert his utmost Influence to niake th at bill sliceessfuK Should Keep Products It is absolutely necessary oui larmingf people place themselves ia such a position and create such a condition that they can keep taair products on the farm when the speculator puts oats in the twenties and com in the forties Thirty days from now the threshing machiies will be humming on Iowas farmii in the farm yard will tuned up and some of iniim will be wrecked in mad rush to seewho can get the threshingout jfit first to drop his grain into the elevators load it out on theside tracks and send it down to the ter minal markets 10 times as fast as it should go with a message tacked on each car that reads something lika this That is the method of marketing thegrain from Iowas farms and it is the method tflat is emplpyed in the marketing of every product that the farmer raises except a few of the little commidities that he is able to handle direct to the consum Coupled with that condition is this oneThe speculator steps into the option pits in January andputs A price on distant futures monia before the crops are sowed in the Mississippi Valley andeven a price on porJt products months before the pies are bora on Iowa farms That gystem is too Intricate and perhaps hard to attempt to explain In any of time Some day perhaps congress will ratber its courage to the point where it will that problem aas Plant Employe Is Transferred Here CLEAR LAKE July employe the local gas plant for several years has been transferred to theelectric repair department of the Central West Public company Chris Jacobson farmer employe of the ChoateChizek transfer company has been engaged to fill the vacancy left by Mr Peterson which is one in ttie American grain marketing system With that condition facing lite American farm is their any ques tion ia yoijr mind or in the mind of anycitizen of average intelligence that the problem ofthe American farmer is to so finance himself nnd that means financing his neighbor too so as to enable the farmer as a whole to hold their crops back off the market until somebody wants them at a price that is fair to the people who produce them I have always felt and still feel that every cooperative organization in the country should retain a smaL percentage of the net price of slufJ it handles Take Cerro Gordo coun ty as an illustration Its 27 cooper atives handled last yeur nearly si million dollars in business A one per cent deduction from that busi nesswould create afund of 560000 a year In 10 years the farming In dustry would be independent In 1J years they would have approximate ly a million dollars available to sup ply the needs of a sensible grain marketing system That is the rea son vire are all interested in your ef forts to build an insurance organi zation that will consolidate for lowaa people the money that Iowas farmers pay for their own protec tion Should Make Deduction The plan 1 just mentioned of a small deduction on the business handled would create a situation that would make the agricultural community independent in a few short years so that funds might be used to purchase the necessary in policy to protect every familyJn the community
