new organization of farmers has sprung ir a finifflfi Senator James Couzens ruptcy are standing obliga tions w i bh out immediate bank essential to busi up almost overnight Farmers of Iowa meeting Thursday Iowa Falls and had afternoon its in ness recovery and to agricultural recuperation Couzens Inquiry Investigation by Senator James Couzens of Michigan as senate In terstate Commerce committee chair man into the roads financial sta tus already has furnished a vast deal of information from which to draw conclusions Findings by the commission of which ExPresident Coolidge was head at the time of his death with Alfred BSmith Bernard M Ba ruch Clark Howell and Alexander Legge as his associates perhaps have not quite the same value con sidering that this inquiry was launched by the roads bondholders rather to protect them selves than jiit Live The theory and doctrine ot the organization is Do unto others as you would have them do unto cooperation conciliation and compromise those things which are fair just and equitable to al parties to the end that the free and independent homes of the United States may be saved Three major propositions of vital importance considered by the group aVir3tThat it is of immediate Im portance to prevent the further rum of the members of this organization resulting from the foreclosure ot shell dates back for the most part t chattej mortgages and the enforce ot landlorda llena by Which not leave the or labors rights out of account in suggesting reforms Present Observations Boiled down it ia evident 1 That the plight of the roads will improve somewhat with better times 2 That reorganization will enable them to regain a share of the prof its they have lost to the truck bus and private auto pipe lines and water transport 3 But that their great difficulty is inherent in their hopeless attempt to keep up dividends and pay off debts based on the supposition that they represent billions in Invest ments that never really went into them What makes the situation so hard to handle is that the looting of the national transportation s y a tern leaving it a mere hollow financial two or three generations Revaluation Difficult Obviously a revaluation of the lines if it could be accomplished would be the fairest method of ar riviug at a present day adjustment but the task ia so complicated that although it has been in progress for years it is scarcely farther on now Experts accordingly are in sub stantial agreement to cut rates to figures that the traffic can bear scale debts propotionately and let the shareholders take what is if anything All authorities concede that It will be precious little Who then will operate the roada It is difficult to arrive at any conclusion other than that Uncle Sam will have to make it his busi ness Naming of William H Woodin industrialist with a vast knowledge of railroads as secretary of the treasury tends to confirm the be lief that the government will be prepared to operate the railroads The nucleus developed in Hardln county but at the meeting there were delegations from 11 of the 14 counties near Hardln in which the movement has bad supporters Large Crowd Present The
