Ames Daily Intelligencer (Newspaper) - November 13, 1911, Ames, Iowa Ames daily intelligences volume 44ames, Iowa monday november 13, 1911 number 35 Iowa interested in Holden talk Holden would create Home Market por the products of the farm. A with the exception of two or three papers the response to the suggestion that the Iowa governorship should be taken out of politics and that for at least two terms particular stress should be made to make Iowa greater industrially educationally aurally and with a definite policy of development has been Hearty by the press of the state. Favourable comment has been made by both progressive and Stan Pat editors. The movement grows in popularity and Many letters have come to the editor of the intelligencer commending the suggestion. Several letters have been received by friends of other candidates however who have urged that professor Holden should be discouraged should he have any ambitions politically because by getting into the game he upsets All the calculations doped by the political slate makers. The Iowa City citizen suggests that professor Holden should stick to his last and stay where he has done such great work and where he is in a position to do still greater things the Sac Sun is of the opinion that professor Holden does not know anything about politics but does know Corn and that he should stick to his specially. The Marshalltown times Republican is afraid that the governorship would spoil the work of the world s greatest Corn expert Odio is needed to carry on the work so Wrell started. Of the Many other papers i Yeti cd practically All have either i ii do i sed or Given favourable comment to the suggestion. Such an endorse i ent must be Gratifying to professor Holden. He has come Iii closer touch with More people in Iowa than Amman since Iowa became a state. He has talked with people fend has won their hearts. This personal acquaintance would undoubtedly give him the nomination should he enter the race. It always has won it always will. The Holden personality has Given him something More than an acquaintance it is a Friendship a brotherly interest and All these friends would be at the polls on the Day of election. If professor Holden save the word petitions will be circulated in every township in the state. A suggestion from him would give him a petition that would contain practically a majority of the voters before the primary election is held. But professor Holden has not yet said the word. He May not say it the demand so far has not been sufficient to induce him to consent. He is working out several problems in his own mind and the people of Iowa can help him solve them. Professor Holden will do the tiling he thinks is his duty regardless of personal ambitions or Money consideration. He threw up a $4,000 Job in Illinois to accept a $2,000 Job Iii Iowa because president Beardshear the Board of trustees and the agricultural editors of Iowa convinced him that it was his duty. He has made Good. The Farmers of the state Are pleased with what he has done they Are believers in Holden and of the things Holden preaches. They do not think that his usefulness would vanish should he be elected governor they know that the governorship would put him in position to give greater service to the building up of the Industrial institutions of the state of improving Rural conditions promote the building of More factories increase school privileges and extend the usefulness of the Church. Professor Holden does not profess to know much about politics. Like Lincoln thought on the Tariff he can not comprehend the Good business sense of shipping cattle to Chicago and then buying the meat when it is returned after it has Cost two freight charges. The Hairdo ads get the transportation charges Chicago labourers get the work and their wages Are spent outside of Iowa to outside merchants. We ship our hides to Boston and pay the freight. Boston labor works them up into shoes and we get the finished product plus two freights. The wages of the men who make the goods is spent in Boston it does not go towards developing Iowa industries or Iowa Trade of it is spent for Iowa farm products the freight charges must come out of the Iowa Farmer who sends his products fast Iii Competition with Eastern and Canadian producers of those labourers were located in Iowa farm products would command a higher Price and save the freight. Professor Holden does not Call that politics. He says that is simply farm sense. As governor a better Opportunity would be presented to put some of these suggestions into use. Had the suggestion of the Rural life commission been made by mister Roosevelt it would have had but Little weight. When however it was presented by president Roosevelt it became one of the most stupendous undertakings of an administration since the Days of Lincoln. The practical suggestions of professor Holden have been the Means of developing Iowa As never before. These suggestions backed by the same Man As governor of the state would a give them Many times the weight and influence. Governor Holden would Start something to make Iowa a greater state industrially. His principal work heretofore has been to assist Farmers to prepare their products for Market. His next step is to provide a Home Market for those products professor Holden has made the Extension department what it is. He has made it a tremendous machine there is not a better organized department in Iowa than is the Extension department of the Iowa state College. Its business arrangements Are the most systematic of any institution in the West. The Extension department is a travelling College a lyceum Bureau with a transportation equipment and a moving exposition. The Man who successfully manages this affair is capable of managing a Railroad a University o the business of a great state. The Extension department has been a stupendous Success. It moves along without accidents and without friction. It works All the time. It carries with it wholesome enthusiasm and a Loyal support to the institution and state it represents. Many opportunities have been presented to professor Holden to Rake up work in other states. Great corporations have offered him positions with much larger salary to look after the development of agriculture in other territories. Industrial institutions want him to take the management of the business. Other states offer him greater opportunities than his present position commands. These Are some of the problems which Are worrying professor Holden More now than the governorship. He knows what his ambitions Are. The thing which he is trying to solve is what is his duty. He will solve that first ambition Money selfishness politics revenge or retaliation will not enter into the consideration. Iowa has the Opportunity to gel away from factional politics and Start the development of the state along practical lines. The state will not be boosted for a million years unless we secure a Booster to do the boosting.
