( A—The objective of the NFO is a fair share of the national income for agriculture, achieved through a strong farm organization. Is The NFO Incorporated ? A—Yes. It WES incorporated under the statutes of the State of Iowa on November 1, 1955. Who Can Be Members of The NFO ? A—Only farmers whose major economic activity is actual farming. Are The NFO Books Audited ? A—The by-laws of the NFO require a monthly audit by a credited public accountant. What Is The Membership of The NFO ? A—By January 1, 1957, only 15 months after the first NFO meetings, the membership had reached 184,000 farmers in 13 stakes, What Are The NFO Dues ? A—The national dues for 1957 will be $2.50, which includes fifty cents for the publication. The congressional, state and county organizations set their own dues. No dues total higher than $5.00. National dues were unanimously adopted on- the convention floor at the national convention by delegates from each county. No dues can be raised except when voted by delegates elected. Has NFO Made Provisions To Protect Farmers From Unfair Use of Membership Dues ? ^ A~fAt the national convention the delegates voted that no officer or employee could at any time in the future receive more than $9,600 in salary per year. In 1956, top salaries of the organization were paid to: Bill Barnes, Secretary. $6,350; Oren Lee Staley, President, $6,300. Salaries in 1957 will not be any higher than 1956. Compare these salaries to other farm organ. izaiions. (It should be remembered that every officer of NFO must be an operating farmer, which means that from his salary received from the organization he must pay the help that takes his place on the farm.) Why Is The NFO The Best Answer To This Problem ? ~ • A-*»The NFO, because it/has no business interests or old antagonisms, has been able to gain a large membership in areas where The National Grange and The National Farmers' Union have not been able to penetrate. Because it has no business interests, it gives hope of better cooperation between farmers and business men. whose suppprt.and understanding is essential if we are to build the legislative strength we must have. 9, Do The Farmers Need NFO ? __ A—The farmers have needed a strong farm organization for years. Everyone else in the economy is organized, Now (he farmers have an opportunity to have a farm organisation with only farmers as members and not an organization engaged in business.
