of Harold L McKinley as chairman of the Republican Na tional Farm Council are utterly fallacious he told a GlobeGazette reporter Saturday morning Its just that Ive given my fair share of time to the assignment and am in need of more time for my own business McKinley ex plained i When askedwhether tempest in a teapot would be an accurate metaphor1 he suggested that it might be just a little too strong but wasnt much in error Transmitted to Council The McKinley resignation was transmitted to the Farm Council at its recent meeting in Chicago by Howard Roach of Plainfield a close associate of the local man in Republican affairs down through the years r Having given up his position on the Council Mr McKMey sent word to those in charge of a Re publican meeting in St Paul that his place on

HAROLDS McKINLEY priate for an exmember to pre sume to speak for the organiza tion A reporter the Minneapolis Tribune learned of the cancellation and proceeded to do some theoriz ing about a split in the Republicaa party according to Mr McKinley That this assumption is wholly without basis is the statement of the St Ansgar man Not Mad I assure you he concluded that Im not mad at anybody Im as strong for President Eisen hower as I was when I was try ing to bring about his nominatiou and election last McKinley had been prominently mentioned as a candidate for the Republican nomination for Third District Representative in Congress but he has indicated that this is unlikely McKinley pointed out that he had handed in his resignation as chair man of the council last July but was asked to remain in the post for a few more months His resignation now is made pos sible by the appointment of Rod Kreger pf South Dakota to heai the agricultural activities of the Republican national committee Highest Regard I have the highest regard fop Mr Kreger McKinley explained and I feeLthat he is entitled to work with a councuVchairman who has more time to to the job than I have The activities and
