CUTTING DOWN FREIGHT RATES T8B FARM BUREAU AND TU TRANSPORTATION FROBLIN THE farmer'* happiness and his pocketbook are both intimately tied up in the problem of transportation. It hat coat too many farmers their entire crop to get it to market. The Farm Bureau ha* been in the forefront of the battle for lower freight rates. Its work ha? been effective. A total of a third of a billion dollars per year haa been saved on the farmers' freight bills every year. If you are aa average farmer this means gt l^ast $50 for you every year ? enough to pay Farm Bureau dues for five years. ? ? ? ? ? I These saving* were brought about in ; several ways. The Farm Bureau got ' railroad valuations for the purpose of com i puting guaranteed earnings reduced by ] the sum of $1 .700.000,000. This of course resulted in an annual saving of t> per cent 1 on that amount or $102,000,000. The I Farm Bureau's arguments in the grain | and live stock cases won the day. and | saved the farm shippers another $t(N),(KKV I IK>0 on their annual freight bill. Then a ! petition was filed demanding immediate reductions in freight rates on basic neces sities of life, to be followed by further re duction as fast as savings in operating e\j?enses could be effected. This was fol lowed almost at once by the railroads an nouncing a voluntary reduction of 10 per cent on agricultural commodities, a clear saving of another $43,000,000. The ac ! tivities of the state Farm Bureaus in se j curing intrastate reductions on limestone, I fruit, molasses, etc., have saved the ship | pers at least enough to make up a grand total of a billion a year, or $50 per farm. State Bureaus Active. Much has been accomplished by the ?tate Farm Bureau acting ia co-operation with the American Farm Bureau in bring- j ing about revisions of railroad rules and regjlations affecting farm products. For , ] instance, it seemed wise to make an effort for a substantial reduction in rates ' i on agricultural limestone within a state j ! as a test case which other states might follow. At the request of the Traffic j Manager of the American Farm Bureau | Federation worked out a scale of rates. ! The railroads accepted it: it is lower than ' 'any other scale on agricultural limestone ; within the I'nited States and is being used j by a majority of the lines in several states. ! The Traffic Department has also made a j special survey of the rates on agricultural limestone in the southeast, the benefits of which are available to all the states in that section. A history of the rates on cattle, hogs, .iftheep, horses, wheat, corn, oats, bsrlev*. 'flay, eggs, poultry, butter, cIiwm and wool has been prepared by this Department, .together with a history of the prices on rt articles at tit*, various markets for Cangveoaieoel Joint Commission of jUneulturat Inooiry. ** HflrMngt. Another problem is the transportation LOf eggs which are today usually shipped jfci Honeycomb Alters, whose protective jiower depends almost entirely upon the "eery weak tips. The railroads prohibit the use of second-hand Alters, but find it absolutely impossible to police the situa tion. The result is that large numbers of the ehippers use these second-hand fillers ?nd then find it impossible to collect ac claims from the railroads. But, more serious than tkis, it the enormous Konomk losa due to the breakage of more than ftve million dollars' worth of eggs every year. The Transportation Department has aent out a bulletin to all the states and agri cultural papers calling attention to the ( nerd of very carefully packing egg ship- j ments, and is also preparing to take further i steps to reduce this loss, which in the end, illogical as it may seem, is taken from the pocket book both of the consumer and of i the farmer. Faulty refrigeration in the transporta tion of perishable products of the farm causes a loss to the fanner and to the pub- j lie of nut less than two million dollars per j \ear. Kvery possible means is being j used to persuade the carriers to increase j their supply of refrigerator cars and also j to improve our present methods of hand- I ling products. A Conference Held. A transportation conference was held in Chicago last October. At this meeting the representatives of the various organi sations worked out a definite program of work to be undertaken by the national organization, as well as by the state organ izations, which would avoid duplication and overlapping of effort. In general, the Transportation Department of the national organization is to confine itself to national problems and to collect in formation on such subjects as inland waterways: motor truck trrtnsportalion; iir.pro\ ements w hich will add to the safety, economy and speed of transportation, and to serve as a clearing house of information for the states. The states through their transportation departments are to handle all local questions, to serve as sources of information for the national office and to handle all immediate problems of the farmers, such as claims, securing equip ment, elevator side tracks, stockyard^ etc. At the same time a careful program of co-operation was arranged so that either the state or national organisation caa ^ecure the assistance of the other. - The T ra*#portnHoirf>e part meat of tko American Farm Bureau Federation era* established in June, 1920, with Clifford Thornc at director and C? B. I jutting* as traffic manager. The impetua to or ganise this department came from des peration of the farmers during the car shortage of the west. During July and August of 1920, 106,000 box cars were ordered sent into western territory and thirty-five lake boats were induced to carry grain to Buffalo on their way out to sea. The Transportation Department has been continuously before the Interstate i Commerce Commission hearings ever j since. I The Agricultural Bloc ^ m we' re used to combinations of financial gentlemen Who organize to "stabilize" the country, now and then, But who, in all veracity, Would look for such audacity As shown in House and Senate by this stubborn Western flock; Who made a combination To mold our legislation ? And who blocked a robber tariff with an Agricultural Bloc! The farmer* fell for Hattery and promises and praise Which seemed to keep them quiet in the ante-bellum days. But now, that's not enough for them, They say the timet are tough for them, They're burning corn for fuel and they cannot aell their stock; They don't get satisfaction From the Grand Old Party's action, So the\ '\r got the parly guessing by an Agricultural Bloc!

The Fordson substitutes tractor wheels for the legs of man and horse. The Fordson takes the burden off flesh and li blood and puts it on steel. It allows the farmer's energy to be devoted to management, and not merely to operation. It gives him time. It cuts his producing costs. There's a big story of savings made possible by the Fordson.
