We desire to commend the efforts of tobacco growers of the State of Kentucky in their efforts to affect an organization for the general better ment of the tobacco situation In this State and elsewhere, and while we recognize that such movements are aot, aud necessarily cannot be, ex clusive Farm Bureau movements, yet we desire to go on record as , . . ,l.Am In Vl a - . iastrnctod to communicate wua Pre.iidout Howard of the American Farm Bureau Federation, request h.s liim to communicate with the leading agricultural and tobacco or uiizutlons in the tobacco produc- lu states, asking t&em to suomn a list of names irom wmcn a i-oui-luittee shall be selected to consider the tobacco industry of the United States and formulate a National Alurketing plan similar to the work of the Committee of Seventeen on Grain and the Committee of Fifteen ou Live Stock. Whereas it appears that a Commit tee has been appointed in the Bur ley Tobacco District to work out plans for a pcruiiiacr.t organization of the Burley Tobacco growers of Kentucky; Now be it resolved that it is the sense of this Convention that the Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation endorse this movement and the Chairman, of this Conven tion Is now empowered to appoint a Committee from the Dark Tobacco District to work out plans looking to the organization of the Dark To-ii.ip.-o r. rowers in Kentucky and to work and co-operate with the Bur ley Committee in forming a State Wide Tobacco .Organization; Said Committee to be composed of threeltlve members rrom eacn congressional District embraced in the Dark To bacco District. ' , We recognize the great service being rendered In a legitimate way by the various marketing agencies, and pledge our support to such con structive and progressiva policies as will tend to improve such agencies and the service rendered by them; but wit denv the risht of men who perform no useful service, either as producers, distributors, or manufac turers of a commodity, to make their living by gambling upon th results of the efforts of those Who are ao engaged; that supervision or control of the packing Industry, or anv nther branch of business that attains a proportionate magnitude, hir rnvernmental regulation, it a wise volley, and urge the speedy en actment ot suck State and National Legislation as may bt necessary to correct the pernicious systems condemned in this resolution. Warecogniz the great and last ing ' good accomplished by ether farm organizations la this State and pledge to them our bearty aupport THE HARTFORD MERAL0 Mg lO mo utfliwrniriii. ui aiiiuiiux and the uplift of agricultural condl tions, and most cordially invite them o co-operate with the Ken tucky Farm Bureau Federation In its work along similar lines. Realizing the growing scarcity of stock cattle, hogs and sheep upon the farm and the great need of re plenishing such supplies in order to maintain the fertility of our farms and produce meat and feed the peo ple, we most earnestly call the at tention ot the various railroads in this State to this problem now con fronting the farmers of Kentucky and request that they make and es tablish stocker and feeder rates for the shipment of such stock back to the farm, which rate shall be low ered the more favorable than the present rates for marketing ship ments, and which rates shall be ap plicable to all Ha.es la the State ot Kentucky. ' We pledge our support to out educational leaders la their work ia the rural communities and among the agricultural classes and In their work and plans that the boys and girls on the farm may enjoy the same advantages and be as well equipped In their lite work ns ttiose In any other profession. We further desire to' express our appreciation to the hearty co-operation given the Farm Bureau move ment in this state by the public and agricultural press and invite a con tinuance ot same In the furtherance of its efforts looking to the organi zation of the farming class in our great co-operative plan. Whereas, In any affairs In which the State is concerned the farmer influence is as potent as that of any other class ot citizens of the State, and whereas, the control of such af fairs must in all cases originate with theState Government; Be it there fore resolved, that the. farmers of the State of Kentucky respectfully request His Excellency, the Govern or ot the Commonwealth, to give consideration to the farmers ot the 3tate in all matters pertaining m to the general welfare of Ihe State, and request, further, that the far mers be represented by appoint ments on all Boards, Commissions or Committees of any sort which may be appointed to deal with mat ters involving the interests of the public at large. We pledge the support of the Ken tucky Farm. Bureau Federation and the County Farm Bureaus to . the state and County officials In the ef fective and economical expenditures of all money on public works and enterprises ' and especially in the building of roads and the expend! tures of the peoples money therefor. Whereas, the present methods of marketing farm produce are ex travagant and wasteful, and, Where as, the producer must accept and the consumer must pay the prices that are offered or demanded by tnose forces who control distribution and who are primarily interested in profits and frequently defeat the laws ot supply and demand, and, Whereas, we believe the remedy of this condition lies in the producers collective marketing and co-opera tive association and corporation marketing their products, through these organizations as required by the buyers and at prices that will sell the crop. Therefore, we, the Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation, do recommend and encourage the organization of producing farmers Into collective marketing and co-operative associa tions, or associations that will mar ket the crop and return to the far mer the entire amount of the pro ceeds of sale of his produce less the oat of marketing. We farther In sist that no marketing or co-operative association or corporation - be supported or recommended by ' this Federation, except after an exhaus- Investlgatlon of the by-laws and constitution and the purpose ot such organizations or corporations, by a Committee .which shafl be ap pointed by the President of the Federation, Believing the Kentucky and Indiana Dairies Company, handling and distributing the product o(. 700 producers, and selling direct, to the consumer, is a. sincere co-operative effort to place the consumer and producer in a closer relation and more economically produce and dis tribute dairy product. Therefore be it resolved that we recognize and en courage tkla organization. Realizing that the scrub is un protable and la greatly responsible tor the live stock situation In this State, and believing that Kentucky needs mora and better-live - stock; and also believing tbat the move ment of the Kentuoky Agricultural College, the Kentucky Pure Bred Live Stock Association and the Louisville Live Stock Exchange In organizing and promoting the Farm ers' Better Sire Sales, is the most Important steD ever undertaken In that direction. We . desire to en and hereby call upon the County ( f arm Bureaus ana an, numoi j render all assistance possible in, making the Farmer Pare Bred Bult Sale to be held June 2nd, and the Pure Bred Sheep Sale to be held August 11th, a success. Whereas the majority of the live stock that I produced In the Bute ot Kentucky Is shipped to packing house outside of the State and then returned to us, freight added both ways, and. Whereas, on ac count ot the fact that there are practically no facilities within the State for the utilization of such raw materials a hemp, wool, buckwheat, 1 and only a email amount of the to bacco crop. and. whereas, these con ditions stand in the way of the best development and progress ot the Farmers ot the State of Kentuck; Be It resolved, that the Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation request the co-operatlea of the Louisville Board of Trade and Louisville In-" dustrlal Foundation, and any other organizations that may be of help, to do their utmost to work out plana for the location of factories within the border of the State, and, The Kentucky Farm ufreau Federation offers its co-operation In working out 'these probloms and suggests that, it feasible, a Committee be ap-j pointed,, at the discretion ot the Ex-, ecutive Committee and the Presl-j ueut, tor furthering co-operative rel-i atlons.
