The aim of the Farm Bureau ia to
bring farmers closer together; to
have them work to the advantage of
each other. The squirrel Is sn enemy
to every farmer, whether on the bor
der or protected by his less fortunate
neighbor. And we ask that every/
farmer In or out of reach of squirrel*
migrating from government tends, td
get out on the days set go with the
crowd and exterminate the squirrel/
