Farmers Uricn Meeting Here
Told Hoover's Relief Body is
Bound to Resort to It
Insurance was the topic on which
the Farmers Union held a big meet
ing in Patterson hall this afternoon,
to be followed by a business session
of representatives of that department,
of the organization this evening.

pany's mutual life, fire and automo
bile protection before the members

lowa Farmers Union and of the
union's life insurance company: t’. A.
Kizer. of Des Moines, also represent
ing the insurance department of the
union, and John McMurray. of Sioux
City. lowa, from the main office at
Des Moines.
Reno nwidc his talk largely on the
farm outlook. That covered, in a gen
eral way. crops, insurance and farm
relief through the board being set up
by President Hoover. He spoke of
the chairman of the board. Alexander

as big a success of the board as he
has of the International Harvester
corporation, the union will be satis
The explanation of the union's sat
isfaction when it was the debenture
plan it wanted and failed to get. ac
cording to Reno, is that the farm
hoard, to become a success, will have
to apply the union’s farm relief plan
in another form. To finance the
wheat surplus it will be necessary, hr
thinks, to use the $500,000,000 revolv
ing fund as the equivalent of the
McNary-Haugen equalization fees
would have been used. The union
favored the McNary-Haugen bill.
E A Kizer. in speaking of the mu
tual life insurance-department of the
union, said the company has been in
existence six years, ha-. 10,000 policy
holders and $12.000000 of business
written. It seeks rural people for its
risks, but does not confine itself to
union members. It i.s essentially a
farmers company.
The funds of the insurance com
pany are devoted exclusively to fi
nancing farmers and farms.
