rjECORAH March tore as the truly basic industry of America relief of which must come thru sound economic measures rather than thru political devices was the picture painted by State Senator C A Benson of Clayton county in an address here yesterday noon before the Decorah Chamber of Commerce Mr Benson a farmer is seeking the republican nomina tion for representative from the fourth congressional district In fact Semitor Benson contend ed the great need today for llm entire citizenry is more business and less politics in government All that farming asks or needs Is an equality of opportunity he held Es sentially agriculture nnd business and industry have the same inter ests Interests Are tin Sump A cuisory glance quite posHihly would give the impression that the interests and activities of the farm er are dissociated and so different from those of the business man that the two have little or nothing in common Mr Benson said As a ilia tteroffactthe fortunes of both are so closely related that one can not for long prosper If the other suffers The condition of either is an accurate reflection of the state of the other Recent developments at the seat of our national government would indicate that there is a lack of sympathetic understanding of agri culture and its problems on the part of the larger metropolitan districts especially those not far from the Atlantic Apparently there is a dis position on the part of the indus trial east to look upon the agricul tural west as a region inhabited by a people whose social moral and intellectual development has not yet emerged from the bowandnrrow stage in human advancement and who because the smell of the soil clings to their fingers like trained and dutiful children should be seen and not heard The Lnml af Pure Air In contrast to this unfriendly almost hostile altiude toward agri culture originating it seems in the transAppalachian area out here in northeast Iowa where the corn grows tall the air is pure and greed and avarice nnd hate have not blotted out the ten command ments from the minds and hearts of men its encouraging and cheering to note the friendly cooperation and sympathetic understandingthiit exists between country and town True there are differences on vari ous questions But they are honest differences of opinion and judg ment nnd are found amon either jroup quite as much as between the
