neighbors Full MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 20 1960 7c Copy Thl Paper of Two SeeUoulectta on No 294 U N upholds Hammars Plowing attracts politicians Big day for candidates By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau National Plowing Contest this week is an annual jamboree for conserva tionconscious farmers but in presidential years it gets to be something more sort of overgrown combination of state fair hoeflown and po litical picnic The hosts this year are Bur ton and Dorcas Ode whose farm near Sioux Falls S D offers the right combination of crops for the plowing match and the right combination of level land and hilly terrain Also and this is important any year but particularly so in a presidential year its close to a rural area population center Brandon and so affords the best kind of forum for farm speeches by candidates Nixon and Kennedy THE NATIONAL Plowing Con test evolved from a state plow ing match organized in the early 1940s by Herb Plambeck farm director of radio station WHO Des Moines This in turn was an outgrowth of various county and local contests Originally the interest was in skill in straight furrow plow ing Soil conservationists began to take interest amongthem Plambecks fellow radio farm di rectors in the Wisconsin Iowa Minnesota area and now the an nual event is under partial spon sorship of the National Associa tion of Conservation Districts One day of the program is de voted to levelland plowing matches another to contour plowing This years host is a leading soil conservationist tractordrawn wagon trains will take visitors on an exhibition tour of good soil programs insti tuted on the Ode farm during the past year THE APPEARANCE of Presi dent Truman at t h e Dexter Iowa plowing match Sept 18 1948 is reported to have been a major turningpoint of the 1948 p r e s idential campaign He staged a typical Give em hell performance for the assembled farmers Wall Street reaction aries were putting fabulous sums into Republican c a m paign coffers hot for the love of the Republican candidates but because Wall Street ex pected its money to elect a Re publican administration that will listen to the gluttons of privilege first and to the people not at all he said Candidate Thomas E Dewey passed up the Dexter festivities for a farm speech in nearby Des Moines two days later No sub sequent presidential nominee has made that mistake It was at the national plowing match at Kasson Minn that Gen Eis enhower made his later aban doned pledge of not merely 90 per cent of parity but full par ity and further declared I the Republican party stands behind the pricesup port laws now on the books SPECTATORS AT tht Ode farm will get probably some thing less than they hoped for In his farm speeches so far Ken nedy has fastidiously shunned specifics For all his talk of a world food distribution plan through the United Nations Nixon has been equally vague A magazine with more than 3 million farm family readers The Farm Journal probably hit it on the head when it editorial ized The truth is neither party has much new farm medicine despite thestrenuous effort of the platform writers and the candidates to make it seem so The technique be to convince farmers that were better friends of yours than they are rather than to flourish new ideas WHATS IN A NAME LOS ANGELES UPI UCLA Monday enrolled a fresh

Hammar skjold THE NINENATION Soviet bloc France and South Africa abstained on the resolution The Assemblys action was seen as a vindication of the sec retarygeneral who has been under bitter Soviet attack for his Congo policies and as a slap at SoViet Premier Nikita Khrushchev on the eve of his heralded appearance before the world body The Russians had accused Hammarskjold of interferring in the internal affairs of the Congo and heaped strong criticism upon him when the UN com mand deprived Moscowfavored Patrice Lumumba now ousted as premier of the use of the ra dio and the airports Lumumba

threw in the sponge and gave up her efforts to ram through a resolution which would have been a sharp indictment of Hammarskjolds actions in the Congo The General Assembly action came after the Russians had ve toed a similar resolution in the Security Council The big power veto does not apply in the as sembly The vote set the stage for the opening of the regular 15th ses sion of the General
