And needless clash Over the principles of Cellec citizen times our readers write to the editor v now that it .lias1 been advertised through the daily newspapers that there would be a possible holding action of farm commodities by the National far mers organization it May be Wise to discuss just what is a holding action nothing More or less than to get parties involved to sit Down across the table with the buyers of farm commodities to try and get a Cost of production Price plus a profit for the Farmer. First thing is said when members of the no and those Farmers who Are sympathetic toward the movement go in for a holding action by keeping their commodities at Home until he will receive a of production Price is that it is in Ameri can that we Are going to starve somebody that the Farmers Are brain washed. Let me say to All did you not have a holding action when you were a child Don t you remember when brother sister or would want some of the Candy or toy that you had did you not say to them Well you can have it if you let me have so and sol do you remember those words that was your first holding action the explanation of it is just that from childhood Days you went on into some kind of business As a grower Baker banker implement dealer then you set your Price on the article you were Selling and which you Are entitled to. That was your next holding action. But what about this farm boy who went into farming of How naughty it is for him to try and get a Cost of production Price for his commodities. He must try to balance his bookkeeping by Selling his commodities for less than Cost of production he must never be lad to believe that he must have Cost of production that would be brainwashing the poor soul.

It s a question which rings better in the ear Hubert Bird or Eugene Bird senator Goldwater has t produced a new Book in quite awhile. It s a lengthy process writing books with a Quill pen.

We find it unfortunate that in Cedar rapids in the fire service of this con Unity it becomes necessary for firemen to first win to Sav. Quote Rev. James l. Wizzard so says in my judgement there is no objective reason Why the no should be such a cause of Contention. Over the past several years i have had Long discussions with leaders of All three established National farm organizations and of the cooperative movement. When pushed to it All of them agree that there is no Basic or necessary conflict Between the no approach to farm problems and their own. They All admit that if the no idea had Arisen and had been developed within their own organization it would by now be a major part of their accepted program. Unquote. The time must come when the Farmers As a group will have to set Down across table with the buyers of the farm products and bargain for a Price. Agricultural collective bargaining is authorized by the capper volstead act of 1922, the co author of the act senator Arthur capper Republican of who said its purpose is to give the far mers the same right to bargain collectively that is already enjoyed by corporations.
