PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEICHBOKS MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY MAY 10 1933 HOME EDITION THIS PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 186 Strike Was Predicted Reno Saw Present Farm Uprising Last Year By CHARLES P STEWART WASHINGTON May 10 CPA Milo Reno head of the National Farm Holiday association told me in Des Moines last September that western agricul ture would have to be taken care of or something mighty difficult to tell from se cession would be the upshot of then existing conditions It would in clude the is suance of the a g r i c u 1 tural states own scrip he added Milo Reno The holiday farmers action at the Iowa capital the other day in voting a strike beginning May 13 and providing for a billion in scrip to go with it looks decidedly like a verification of this forecast or fulfillment of Renos threat whichever one chooses to call it Promise Wont Do To be sure if relief legislation makes its effects felt very speedily the uprising will evaporate but it is safe to say that the mere promise of relief will not serve the purpose in the corn and wheat belt It is significant that the strike was voted unanimously with mil itia actually in the field in the northwest corner of the Hawkeye commonwealth The yeomanry is not afraid of militia that was its significance Plenty of Space I lived for years in northwestern Iowa and I know those farmers They are very friendly chaps when peaceful but quite impossible to In timidate They are not like a crowd in a city street penned between rows of buildings where a small but disciplined force is at an over whelming advantage They have all doors i to operate in and elsewhereIf FARM RELIEF BILL READY TO SIGN them Any embargo that they may seek to enforce against shipments of farm products into the cities will be difficult to defy too There un questionably will be individual farmers who will wish to get to market and with military protec tion mtybe they will be able to get there but how about their home life later Choose Younger Man Milo Reno is quoted as advising bis followers to choose a younger standard hearer than himself They preferred Reno however and it is understandable Milo Reno is not so old after all apparently between 50 and 60 His bushy hair is streaked wita gray and he is a smallish person but as active as a youth in his 20s He has always they say settled his differences with others rough and tumble and It is not of record that he has been out out argued yet by this method Makes Good Money He is an excellent businessman also indeed makes more money than his adverse critics think he should to be a distinterested popu lar leader Nevertheless he retains his pres tige Oratorically his style Is tremen dously forceful not ornate He speaks the farmers language He is a human dynamo His per sonality is charming And anything he undertakes to do all corn belt accounts agree he does and then some even ac cordingto his detractors He is a fellow townsman of Sec retary of Agriculture Henry A Wallace AND 7 CHILDREN GALES VICTIMS Scores Hurt and Heavy Property Damage in Tornadoes By ASSOCIATED PRESS Tornadoes along the border of Tennessee

groups in cities for support They would be asked to name purchasing commit tees to procure the supply and pur chase of food from committees of farmers In All of States This program is to be followed In all of the 18 states Reno said and reports from state presidents thus far had Indicated marked progress In making it effective particularly in Iowa Wisconsin Minnesota and North Dakota We have never held that farmers had the moral right to starve peo ple Reno explained all we ask is that society subscribe to that one fundamental of pro duction to the producer Farmers are to be asked in the
