Farm Leader Hits American Tariffs ROCKFORD, m. iff) — An agricultural leader said^today America's trade policies and tariffs "are designed to protect industrial investors and laborers from foreign competition and have operated at the farmer's expense." Herschel Neivsom, master of the National Grange, a farmers' organization, spoke at the annual Trask Bridge Picnic, one of the largest rural outings in the nation. "Why is it that raw products of agriculture come in duty-free, whereas just the minute that any processing occurs, any foreign labor enters into preparation or fabrication of that product for the c<5n- sumer, it immediately invites a rather imposing tariff or protective mechanism?" "Why should dairy products come into this country in free competition with the products of American farm workers when manufacturers of watches produced in Switzerland must pay a tariff of 36 per cent on watches before they ever get into this country?" he added. "Why is it that raw wool comes into America with a relatively low tariff compared to woolen fabrics?" hand in the nutritional experiment.
