support of the NRA in an address before the Chicago association of commerce and the Illinois Manufac turers association Johnson said that when he took over the job he expected the early applause would cease and the air would be full of dead cats He said the NRA had stepped on a few some of the biggest kingingest toes in the used to trampling anybody who op posed them Witch Doctors He said NRA objectors alao had used a device of witch doctors to set up a hobgoblin and then dance around the fire beating a tomtom and screaming at it He advised his listeners to wake up and get rid of these savage fetishes The biggest Imitation dead cat is the one about the freedom of the press Johnson said Johnson planned to extend this weeks tour to Minneapolis Des Moines Omaha Kansas City Tulsa Fort Worth and Louisville Secre tary Wallace on Saturday will ad dress farmers and businessmen in Des Moines Make No Comment Before Johnson left Washington neither he nor Wallace made public comment on the

struggle and no man can foretell the end One thing sure is that there cart no longer be any doubt in Uie minds of the peo ple as to the presidents attituue and millions of our ers business and professional men the Injustice of the ad ministrations attitude towards the farmer will rally and support the holiday movement Foolish to Temporize It seems foolish to longer tem porize with the situation hoping it la possible to convert either of the old parties to the cause of the plain people That thero will be a pow erful third party launched that will amalgamate the progressive ele ment of the United States Is cer tain In ignoring the request of the Farmers union and the Farmers Holiday association Reno charged President Roosevelt definitely and deliberately broke his preelec tion pledge to the farmers of the na tion No amount of smiles and sophristries can in the least alter the situation He placed himself squarely behind Henry Wallace and they should be a congenial pair Wallace completely reversed him self after he became secretary of agriculture and Franklin D Roose velt has ignored his pledges and forgotten that part of the demo cratic platform which said that the party platform is a solemn covenant ivith the people to be sacredly kept Asked for Justice The five governors who presented the Farm holiday demands to the president last week only asked for justice for the farmer and that he should be treated with the same consideration as other groups Reno asserted It Is to be hoped he said that he governors who were figurative ly slapped in the face by the pres dent and secretary will have the courage to take the necessary ac ion to protect our citizens in pos session of their homes and demand for the people of the middlewest especially the farmers the
