DEMAND CREDIT LAW
Farm Bureau Insists Net Income
Be Recognized as Basis of
^t. Paul, Dec. 7.—Congress will be
as&d by l.'SOOtfflO organized farmers
to pass legislation revising the present
credit laws ot the United States, so as
to guarantee adequate finance for agri
culture on 12 and 24 months* paper.
Together with this demand the Am
erican Farm Bureau federation and its
47 state federations will present a de
mand that net income be recognized
as the sole measure of ability to pay
taxes and that the bulk of all taxes be
levied oit that basis.
This is the report brought back by
the Minnesota delegation which at
tended the national convention of the
American Farm Bureau federation in
Another national farm bureau policy
defined by the convention is summar

"The measure }f ability to pay taxes
for the support of the national gov
ernment is net income, and the bulk
of the taxes should be levied and col
lected on that basis.
"The tax should be progressive
that is. the greater the income, the
higher the rate should be.
"We are opposed to the issuing of
all tax free securities, and request that
congress submit a constitutional
amendment to the several states to
cure this defect in our tax system.
"We disapprove the appeal of the
excess profits tax.
"We are opposed to the principle of
a general sales tax, or any similar plan
such as a general manufacturers tax."
Development of the Great Lakes-St.
Lawrence waterway, restoration of
pre-war powers to state railroad com
missions and a strong objection to per
mitting carriers to charge higher rates
for short hauls than for long hauls
were planks in a transportation plat
form submitted by the Minnesota dele
gation and adopted.
The Minnesota platform •demands
the repeal of drastic modification of
the Adamson law, and the repeal of
parts of the Esch-Cummins act.
"We denounce the principle of guar
anteeing income upon fixed valuations
to the railroads of the United States,"
the platform says, "and ask the repeal
of section 15-A, Esch-Cummins act,
which contains this feature.
"Since the Adamson law produces
conditions in the conduct of the rail
roads which operate against the in
terest of the public we ask its repeal
or modification as speedily as pos
