Philippines FarmerLabor Tieup in Iowa May Be Next By ROBERT HOG AN DBS MOINES Iowa have a farmlabor oTganiza tion on the political scene in the near future Adair County touched off the speculation on the possibility of a farmlabor tieup the other day when its Harrison Township chapter of the National Farm Organization in a 31 to 1 vote asked the national organization to revamp its bylaws to enable NFO to become affiliated with organized labor and seek admittance into the ranks of labor organizedfayttoreiO and Prior to this action by the township group there had been rumblings of the possibility of a farmerlabor tieup in Iowa One Republican official several weeks ago in studying the politically turbulent Iowa farm scene expressed the opinion that this state may be following Minnesota a farmlabor party The Farm Labor party has been merged into a Democrat FarmLabor unit in Minnesota Leaders of this states new farm organization which has its national headquarters at Corn ing disclaims any political tie up and continually express the point that the organization is nonpolitical and nonpartisan Fatigued But Full of Fight Final Vote Near on Farm Bill Curfew Clamped on Cities British Move in Reprisal Nevertheless there are those who believe that NFO could and might align with labor and become a potent political factor in this state It could be more potent now that steps are being

against flexible sup ports The NFO seeks 100 per cent crop supports and in this stand is backed by labor organizations The Eisenhower administration favors flexible supports and less government subsidy and control and Senator Hickenlooper is sup porting the administration pro gram In this he is also joined by the Iowa Farm Bureau Federa tion oldest and largest farm or ganization in the state Behind Normal Added to the conjecture is the fact that the Farm Bureau mem bership campaign is running somewhat behind normal which is construed in some areas as meaning its influence on the po litical scene may be slipping While a farmerlabor party would be new on the local scene there has been a farmlabor alignment in state politics before In 1948 leaders of the Iowa Farm Bureau and the

Ellender said he understood Dirk sen was less inclined to push it since the Senate had voted 5439 for a domestic parity plan for wheat The wheat and rice plans both contemplate high supports for grain

90 to 75 per cent of parity nearly two years ago That put the average return to pro ducers at a hundredweight for manufacturing milk 82 of Parity He continued this support level this year but it is now fig ured at about 82 per cent of par ity because of changes in the for mula used in calculating parity Basic farm law describes par ity as the price fair to the farmer in terms of the price level of things farmers buy and sets out a formula for figuring it Thus parity fluctuates with changes in other price levels or alterations in the formula for calculating costs The Agriculture Committee di
