Secretary Hughes touched the very heart of the Genoa onference when he said the meeting would be politica rather than favoring disarmament. For that' reason he declined an invi tation for this government to send a - representative to participate in that conference. For him to have done otherwise would have been to deviate most markedly from our traditional policy of avoiding "entangling alli ances" in European politics. At the Genoa conference England, France, Italy, Japan, Belgium, Russia and Germany are to have five votes each. Other countries of which there will be about 25, are to have two votes ach. That makes a total of 85 votes. That is the foreign handicap the unitea Mates would have been up against it and consent to attend the Genoa meeting. The odds of 8 to 1 against us in the Council of the league of nations, had we joined that body, are dwarfed When we contemplate the 17 to I odds at Genoa, assuming that America .would have beeii given 5 votes. We don't want to submit our $11, 000,000,000 foreign. debt to the adju dication of any such court as that.

This problem of financing the farm er over the shoals rests with the bankers in the territory near the farm ers. The war Finance Corporation has provided available funds, and with the farmers owning $78,000,000,000 01 the' productive wealth of the country, they can provide ample and safe col lateral security. Bankers are not in business for the present year alone. Like other successful businesses, they are trying to enlarge their business and their scope of operations, and now is their opportunity with the farmers to build for the future'. Help them now when they need it and insure a permanent valuable patronage. Co operation between bankers and farmers now will result in increased prosperity for both.

Bankers can afford ' to give special attention to the farmers' case in ad vising them how to use their resour ces as collateral. There might not be a big margin of profit in this im mediate emergency loan, but thou sands of valuable patrons can be se cured by lending a helping hand at this time. Farmers have learned some valu able lessons during the past two years The cooperative spirit is growing; they are recognizing that there is a business side to farming, as well as a productive side. The Federal Gov ernment has awakened to the needs of the farmers as a class, and has provided legislation that will' help in the' solution of some problems that have heretofore been very hard ones, and that have handicapped him in his operations. When the bankers take the trouble to get the figures representing tne productive capacity of the farmers, and that the latter are in the future going to inject more of business meth ods in their operations, they will rea lize that the business of the- farmer is of a volume and character worth going after. Now is the opportune time to show a friendly interest in a cfass which is the greatest producer of wealth, and will utilize that wealth in a more practical way than ever before. The wise banker will profit by the present opportunity to help the farmer. the pest. In order to- give the growers t?hroug out the state information on this sub ject, S.
