D. tr ie: "This is the one organization that is a bona fide organization through which the farmer as a man may unito and put forth hi griev ances, his claims and success." The organization is not only in this county, but is state-wide in New Mexico and nation-wide in oun cduntry. This organization is representing the far mer in national affai-s as he has 'never been represented before. When we consider that this organization is a little less than one year old, it is marvelous to contemplate what has Wn accomplished. Some time ago is was reported that the United States Shipping Board, in order to bring down the price of meat, was going to equip a lot of ships for transporting cheap meats from, South America and Australia. As soon as the Farm Bureau heard of this, It was immediately taken up, and as a result tho shipping board stated that no such plans were In progress, and that they would not countenance such an outrage on the stock growers of America. The freight deadlock which seemed inevitable last summer came very near the doors of the wheat farmers of Curry County. We all remember when the Bankers Convention was held at Clovis, the hysterical cry went up about the shortage of cars. The Farm Bureau, local bankers and business men held a meeting to deter mine some way by which the bumper wheat crop of Curry County could be saved. We were advised that there was a shortage of moro than one hun-! dred thousand curs, and that it ap-1 peared certain hat due to this fact many farmers would have this ycur's i crop on hand when' next year's crop' came to the market. It was indeed ; a deplorable condition; but thanks to. the American Federation of Ftrm Bureaus, they were on the job look- ing for relief, and have found it.

Please leave at News office. ltp had been granted the railroad for hauling grain from Chicago to Buf falo, and ten cents from Buffalo to New York. This rate had annihilated all water competition in grain haul ing and ns a result the ships on the Great Lakes were not handling grain. Mr. Silver took the matter up with the shipping board, and got a rate for the ships, whereby they could handle grain profitably. The details of this would make a long story, but suffice to say that due to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the one hund-ed thousand cars were released to handle the wheat crops in tho west; and there has been no car shortage in Curry County lately. What would it hnve meant to the farmers in Curry County to have been held up in their grain shipments as seemed inevitable early last summer? The majority of our wheat wouiu still be on our hands and we would be receiving, in place of $1.85 to $2.50 per bushel, which tho majority re ceived $1.25 to $1.30, the present price. This would have meant the loss of not only a great deal of tho far mer's valuable time, with untold an noyance, but also an aggregate sum of $588,000.00. This is a little item tho farmers of Curry County alone might well thank the American Farm Bureau Federation for, The Farm Bureau expressed lt3elf very emphatically on the labor prob lem, and as a result a clause of arbi tration of labor disputes was Kctalned in our statutes. This great organization is seeking wholesalo legislation not only for farmers, but for the public in general The "Truth in Fabric" Bill, which it seems will pass during this session of Congress, not only protects tho wool producers, but every person who buys a piece of wool goods. In other words if this law passes, we will not be pay ring the price of a good wool suit for one of shoddy; because manufactur ers will be compelled to clearly state tho contents of each suit manufac tured. The Farm Bureau does not e.nter Into political or other factional dis putes in any way that will bind It to unreasonable or unfair demands, Due to this beautiful policy, this or ganization was able to have an agri cultural clauso placed in tho platform of both the great political parties in their last campaign. This is something that has never been done before. While conditions are not as flatter ing for the moment as farmers would like to see them yet it is gratifying to note that tho Farm Bureau is receiv- Mrs. Dalton Reed mado a trip to Portales Wednesday.
