Iowa cares for the Iowa hen better
than is done elsewhere was brought
out in a United States senate debate
the other day, as found in the Con

been attacking the "unfair discrimi

had quoted from the Iowa statute for
bidding unfair discrimination In vari
ous things and had compare*! It with
the Minnesota law and others.
"Why," he said, "you could not even

quoted covering a milk case, because
they differ even as to milk." The
Mr. Reed. If a man came before
this board charged with unfair com
petition in eggs, you would have to
try him und*er the Iowa statute. Yon
would be compelled to disregard tha
Minnesota statute, because It forgot
all about the hens. I believe Iowa is
the only state that has cast the pro
tecting aegis of its statute over the
common barnyard hen.
'Mr. Kenyon. Mr. Pieslden—
Mr. Reed. Of course. If you were
trying a milk case you might try It
either under the Iowa statute or you
might try it under the Minnesota stat

her wrongs only in Iowa. I yield to
the senator from Iowa.
Mr. Kenyon. I simply wanted to
suggest that it was a very good pro
vision to protect the Iowa hen, be
