4~AlflOfta (la.) Upper PM Melnet Thoriday, Marth 16, 1961 1,200 Defy Snow For N.F.O. Meeting Here ,!, Farmers have the poorest pub' lie relations of any group in the „ "country, a NebrasKa banker told 1,200 attending, the National Farmers Organization (NFO) sausage . dinner at Gawlgan High school in Algona last Thursday evening, The size of the attendance was considered amazing-in view ot % the fact that snow-packed highways and rnany closed side roads existed at the time after the Worst storm of the winter. The group ale some 200 pies and 'nearly all the sausage from seven hogs donated by farmer- members of the NFO in the area, at the conclusion of the program. Many new memberships were also obtained. Vincent Rossiter of Hartington, Neb., noted that in 1960 the farmer subsidized the American consumer in the amount of $13 billion through cheap food prices. "Had farmers gotten parity prices for their production in 1960, the average Iowa farmer Would have received $9,000 net income, instead of the $3,000 he actually got," Rossiter said. "This added income would have been available for spending with merchants in our towns and cities." Erhard Pfingston, Sargent Bluffs, Iowa, national director of the NFO, said farmers are among the most confused groups in the country today. "We have been led to believe that surpluses are our problem but in reality the fact that farmers don't put a price tag on their prouuction before they sell is the main reason for the low net income. Now farmers can do something about this problem. Through the NFO, farmers can work together to obtain the necessary bargaining power to price their production," he declared.
