% a Farmer Correspondent
MEADVILLE, Pa.-Want to tell
you how successful the Eastern
farmers are. Some people think
that farmers are not hit by the
depression. Of course some of
them milk cclws and sell milk. But
the truth is, that they can't eat
their own butter. They take their
butter and sell it in order to get
a little money scraped up to pay
on taxes. If they want butter, they
substitute oleo.
I know 20 farmers personally,
and, to be honest, every one owes
money. They borrow to the full
value of their property and then
get sold out, of course. When you
city people see these rich farm
homes, please don't think they are
going to be there long.

Against Frame-up
Reports coming i n to the United
Front Committee sponsoring the
appeal of the case of Raymond
O'Toole are very favorable—indi
cating that on the evening of
March 31 (weather permitting) one
of the largest crowds that has ever
been witnessed at the Farmer La
bor Temple will be present to en
joy an evening's entertainment
which promises to be a thriller.
The entertainment, however, is
only a secondary issue, as the prin
ciple reason for this splendid re
sponse is to assure Raymond
O'Toole that the farmers through
out the county have a clearer un
derstanding of what justice means
when administered against an un
employed worker, who was framed
to satisfy the vengeance of Dr.
Storkan, a small town medical doc
The farmers are beginning to
understand that the courts of the
capitalist rule are nothing more
than refined instruments of cruelty
with a veneer of mock democracy,
employed to hood-wink those who
still cling to the mistaken belief
an equal
chance before the law.
The fanners have learned that
in the case of Raymond O'Toole
all the forces of prejudice ana
coercion were used to build up the
sentiment of the people against
him by the members of the city
council, county officials and the
members of the Chamber of Com
merce—these people have gone to
the extent of threatening local at
tomeys with a boycott if they
dared to handle the case against
Dr. Storkan.
Such is the brand of justice,
de r c ( rac » ard tha * u ? c ,
mainstreeters and their official
tools believe in giving to an un
employed worker who was refused
both relief and relief work when
his wife and children lacked even
the simplest necessities of life.
The witch burners of Plenty
wood wanted a victim and when
they could not successfully frame
a case against two other indi
viduals of the great army of un
employed their attack was centered
on Raymond OToole. His was the
blood they shrieked for, unmindful
of tha agony and grief it would
bring on a sickly wife and her
half starved children.
