"Human health depends on the

Fertile Soils Build Healthy Bodies
the soil is fertile, then the crops it
produces will build strong bodies
and sturdy physical characteristics.
If the soil is poor, the crops it pro
duces will be deficient in vitamins,
minerals and proteins necessary for
insuring healthy humans.
“The remedy for diet deficiencies
lies in putting essential minerals in
the form of mixed fertilizers into

Once more the farmer is being asked to break
all food production records. To plow more acres,
feed more livestock and harvest more crops than ever
before. He is being asked to do this so that America
may continue to feed and clothe the needy throughout
the world, as well as our own folks at home.
To carry out this job the farmer must have tools of
production. Most of those he owns have taken a
terrific beating. They can’t be tied together much
longer with rusty fence wire.
In the teeth of this situation, the farmer ran into a
strike in the steel industry a strike which hit at
the heart of food production.
When the steel plants shut down, manufacturers
of farm
machinery and equipment, farm trucks and
cannot get steel for their products.
This year the farmer won’t receive as many of the
replacements he desperately needs. He’ll fight ahead
with his old, broken machinery trying to crack an
other food production record, but the cards are
stacked against him.
All this means more headaches for the farmer

Steel workers are already among the highest paid
wage-earners in America. Before the strike their
average earnings were approximately $1.16 an hour,
$9.26 a day and $46.32 a week on a forty-hour
week. The U. S. Steel offer would have given them
about $1.31 an hour, $10.46 a day and $52.32 a week.
But they refused it, and accused the steel industry of
conspiring to ruin the union with an offered wage
increase of $25 a month, the highest increase in the
industry’s history.
The strike is a direct violation of the contract be
tween the union and the steel companies. The union
wanted a long-term contract and got it. The union
agreed not to strike during the life of the contract.
Yet, the union struck on January 21.
Fighting for a Way of Life
Farmers have a big stake in continuous steel pro
duction. They have an opportunity to say what they
think about unchecked labor monopolies which bring
to a stop the nation’s recovery efforts, through ex
cessive wage demands which could only add to in
flation and cause soaring prices.
Not until enough of them protest unfair, dictatorial
actions and urge proper safeguards against arro
gant, heedless union leadership and onesided labor
laws will the country get back to sane, profitable
production where everyone works together toward a
better standard of living.
