Farm Bureau Federation Sends
Out Call For Cattle Raisers
To Get On the Job
The Kentucky- Farm Bureau
Federation is sending out no
tices to it:- farmer friends of a
heavy increase in freight rates
'on livestock which is to go Into
cttect June 1st. lhe bulletin is
headed "Rad this aend this and
then get busy and act." The bul
letin gives a comparison of rates
on livestock from various points
,to Louisville and what the new
rates will be. The bulletin says
in part:
A new schedule of rates on
livestock for all territory south
of the Ohio river and east of the
Mississippi river has just been
issued by the railroads, effective
June 1st, 1922. These rates will
1 be in operation on all shipments
of livestock from all points in
Kentucky, regardless of whether
the shipment is wholly within
the state or to a point outside
the state. Everv producer of
livestock in Kentucky will there
fore, be affected by these rates
The increase of freight charg
es on livestock to the Louisville
Stock Yards alone will mean an
increase of over $600,000 annual
ly which will have to be paid by
f farmers who ship to Louisville.
T There is iio way of estimating
what the total figures will be to
Kentucky farmers if we attempt
to include shipments from Ken
tucky farms to Cincinnati. St.
Louis, Chliago and other points.
The Southeastern Livestock
Association with which the Ken
tucky Farm Bureau Federation
is cooperating, has filed a peti
tion with the Inter-Stale Com
merce Commission at Washing
ton, requesting them to suspend
these rates pending a hearing
so that those interested in these
new rates may be given a chance

Telegrams should be sent by;

Gibson's home is one of the

and she is considered to be weal

Mrs. Gibson was arrested ten
