Resolutions Passed Show the
Broad Conception They
Have of Their Duty.
When the farmers bf Middle
Tennessee met at their sixteenth
annual institute the laakweek in
August they looked at . questions
of farming from the present day
point of view. The following re
solutions were passed
I. The President of the Unit
ed States has called upon the far
mers of the country for thought
ful action at this time of war.
The Middle Tennessee i Farmers'
Institute, at its 16th annual meet
ing, desires to pledge the support
of the farmers of Middle Tennes
see to the broad minded policies
expressed by Mr. Wilson in his
"several messages to the world.

emergencies of production and
2. We recognize that the far
mers must take an aggressive
part in this war, that more must
be produced than has ever been
produced on like area before.
WemustworK for the comple
tion of this struggle in the inter
est of democracy, but we feel al
so that we must plan for the days
when peace shall be established.
Our agriculture must be made a
permanent one, and our plans
must embrace many years that
are to come.
3. We recognize that the
farm divides itself naturally into
the activities of the field and
those of the home. Each must
assist the other in accomplishing
the common end,
4. We fully concur with the
sentiment expressed by the Home
Makers Section of this Institute
in their resolutions which is ."in
this serious national crisis the
women of Tennessee realize that
they have a great share , in pro
divine more food stuffs., and
they realize that on them devol
ves the enormous task of saving
these food3 for the ifee of our
own and allied nations Resolved:
That we pledge ourselves, our
strength, and our minds to our
Nation in carrying out whatever
is asked of us by our leader Pres
ident Wilson, .
5. ' The National Council of
Defense, thru its organization of
the State Council of Defense;tha
county councils, and the com
munity committees, off era us the
avenue we desire for accomplish
ing our purposes. We. reccora

tion in mind, in order that .our
community life may pe developed
as has been suggested by address
es at this Institute, in agriculture
in education, and in health. Liet

partments interested in these
three lines of community devet
6. In the development of agri
culture, we recognize five essen
tial forms of worK. The, pro

work and development must be
consistently financed. The pro
ducts of the farm must be stored
and distributed to the best mar
kets. Those products which are
nt sold must be conserved, food.
feed, seed, and breeding stock
roust be savedln order to meet
the demands that will comt to
7. At this time an increased
production of wheat is being
asked. Tennessee has been call
ed upon to produce twenty per
cent more wheat than is her cus
tom. Middle Tennessee must do
her full share. But not without
thought as to the best methods
of wheat culture. No field must
be sown until the farmer has de
termined on good field culture,
good seed, good fertilizer, and

will be secured as near home as
possible in every case, for such
seed is best, other things being
eaual. We oledire ourselves now
to this immediate need.
8. This Institute has been
made possible by the co-opera-
of many organizations and many
individuals. The railroads have
provided for our comfort even
tho they are taxtd to the limit
with war-time trrnsportation.
The daily and weekly newspapers
and the agricultural journals,
have taken pains to give far
mers the news ss to the Insti
tute. Several organizations and
institutions have furnished mus
ic. Speakers have inconvenienc
ed themselves to comply with the
requests to appear on the pro
gram. The Secretary of the
State Fair, J. W. Russwurm, has
fitted up the buildings for our
meetings. The program and the
general arrangements have been
made by II. K. Bryson, Commis
sioner of the State Department
of Agriculture, and Charles A.
Keffer of the University of Ten
nessee. To all these and many
others we desire to express our
appreciation, knowing as we do
that their assistance in arranging
for this agricultural, educational
event places great responsibility
upon us in our endeavor to meet
the needs of the hour.

the other congressional t districts
of West Tennessee have had sev
eral Judges on" this court.
Mr. Owen made several friends
here during his short visit,
tThe Crockett Conty Sentinel
says of . Judge Owen: "Judge
Owfnis.a man of the highest
moral character, has been one of
the ieading factors in developing
the agricultural interestsof Tip
ton county, being a large land
owner and a successful farmer
and a lawyer most profound. He
is a man that the people, of the
State really s need in this depart
ment of Justice, and we freely
predict that he will be chosen by
a large majority.
