TO PERFECT FARM ORGANIZATION Farmers of Breckinridge Will Hold Important Meeting in H'burg, April 10. i Farmers have a right to the cost of production. Only about twice in the past forty years has the price of farm products brought the cost of production. Take away from the farm ers of Kentucky the money made in the rise of farm lands and they have worked for nothing. i Organization on the .part of the' farmer will establish the business of farming and assure the cost of pro duction. We blieve the farmer has the same right to returns on the capital invested as has a bank or factory. We Ijelieve the farmer has the same right to a decent wage for his labor as the same service would bring in the factory. As is thoroughly understood the fundamental plan of the Farm Bureau movement is not a selfish one. Its plans are based solely on justice and right to every man, farmers as well as all others. This plan is not based on a dream, or a vision, or an impractical untried substance, but on actual re sults as secured in other states, notab ly, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and a number of others. The success of the movement is assured. ( The size of the organization in Ken tucky, the amount of money neces sary and available, and the scope of the work which can be accomplished are evident when it is realized that these plans have been tried out in progressive states named, where thous- ! Building owned by Bank. cd only a little over 51,000 on hand which is not any more than enough to pay off funds granted to the Fed eral Highway by the old council. The Finance committee made a re port stating that the tax books show ed something like $1,000 due the city from back taxes. City Tax Col lector Chapin was ordered to adver tise and sell all real estate if the taxes were not paid. Picture shows, soft drinks and pool room establishments were looked after by a new ordinance which repealed the ordinance now in force and took up the old ordinance which makes the license run $1 to $2 for each show payable before opening the doors, AH back licenses will be collected. Cream stations were assessed a fee of $25, and poultry and egg produce houses must pay $100 license. Mayor to Order Clean-Up Day. A communication from the State Fire Marshall was read urging the Mayor to have a general clean-up Mayor Barry was ordered to issue a proclamation and ordcr a general clean-up day in Cloverport. City Mar shall Pate was instructed to enforce the ordinance of throwing or burning old waste paper on the streets.
