STAFF WRITER CHARLES Shaff reapportioament plan and proc essors of agricultural products took an oratorical pasting here Monday night Administrators of the tongue lashings were G o v Harold Hughes and Oren Lee Staley Rae Mo president of the Na tional Farmers Organization Hughes did the honors on the Shaff plan and Staley fol lowed suit on the processors The occasion was a dinner sponsored by the Third Congres sional District of the N F 0 About 2500 people attended the meeting in the Charles City High School Auditorium Hughes got his licks in first He called the Shaff plan a Wueprint for deadlock between the two houses of the legisla lure the sort of deadlock that could make it impossible for us to consider in a rational and deliberative manner the great challenges that face our state He charged that the plan would undo all of the under standing we now have between the rural and urban people of our state and aggravate anew all the old rural and urban wounds We cannot afford the high cost of distrust and misunder standing that would come with this plan the governor added Even if the Shaff plan is passed by the voters of Iowa on Dec 3 misunder standing or the Federal courts will find it unconstitutional and strike it down the governor continued Staley was no less direct in his attack on the processors o agricultural products He pointed outthat although the individual holding actions being carried on by N F O or ganizations in Wisconsin Illin ois and Missouri do not have the sanction of the national com mittee they are being watched with great interest These actions are examples of our members moving toward their objectives through organi zation he added And if the processors think Im going to pull the needle out that these members have put in they are going to be sadly mistaken Nobody is getting a bigger kick out of these individual ac tions thanI am he continued These individual holding ac tions probably will continue un til they grow into a general ac tion Staley Mid These smaller actions act to keep the proces sors off balance he pointed out Through these actions we can turn the pressure on and off these processors just like you turn water on and off he de clared The holding a c t i o n is the farmers only tool in pricing his products Staley continued It is a tool which should not be used indiscriminately but only when it is needed for bargain ing he said Staley Warned the farmers for part of their problems He said that as long as they go to the markets asking what will you give me for my products the price situation will not improve Farmers must organize until you can affect the total supply of a product he pointed out Until then processors will as sist each other during holding actions We must control enough of the total supply so that proc essors will be fighting among themselves to get our products Al present farmers are com peting with each other to see who can sell to the processors at the lowest price Staley con tinued As long as they continue doing this they are the best friends the processors have he added Before making his general speech Staley said the individ ual holding actions have moved things to the boiling point He would not list the products which will be affected by the next general action except to say that milk wouid be among them The individual holding actions are expressions of local feelings Staley ssid We loid the local leaders that we would call the next gen eral holding action when we felt the time was right he points out Evidently they think the lime is right now in their areas In his speech Hughes also took a swipe at the urbanrural split The truth of the matter is that the issues that divide us as neighbors and fellow citizens are small by comparison with the common causes that should unite us he pointed out The problem he continued has been one of lack of com munications We have failed to grasp the fact that Iowa is essentially one big community rural and urban people industry and agri culture labor and management with ail of its components depending upon one another for their wellbeing The problems of Iowa psychological and spiritual rather than technical he con tinued We can knock ourselves out studying techniques and pro grams but if we lack enthusi asm and basic vision our ef forts will be of no avail SAME DATElKlUl v V ;
