IJlKHUV, SEPTEMliKU 1C,-1932 LIZINC FOR E JLY'I'HEVILLH. Stock Pens Fall Despite Strike NKWS Corn Belt Producers in Bitter Mood, Determined to Get Results. RY BKUCE CATTOX— NEA Srrvire Writer COUNCIL BLUFFS, fa. l(JP> — The corn bell is looking aV.eart lo Hie next few weeks wilh all the nervous anxiety oJ a man who is silting on a keg of gunpowder live j - foct away from th» edge of a prai- I rie fire. The governors have convened at Sioux City and have gona home again, and it does not look as if the program they adopted is satisfactory to (he men who pul over .. ihs famous farm strike. ^ Although the governors urged the fanners to withhold their produce from the markets until better prices are obtained, and demanded immediate congressional action to improve farm conditions through tariff revision, a farm loan moratorium, legislation lo control crop surpluses, and so on, they did not recommend an absolute embargo on the movement of farm produce, enforced by martial law; and nothing much short of that, would have srimced to keep the farm pickets off the highways. This means Hint. In all prohn- bility, the flare np again; af.d when it does, it is go- iny to be more bitter and potentially more dangerous than it wns before. It is noteworthy that Milo Fieno, fiery national leader 1 of *he Farmers' Holiday Association, has just finished organizing representatives of half of the agricultural counties in Oklahoma, with the decla- _ tition, "Don't think this movement JF ever coins to stop until fociety his conceded to the farmer what il has conceded to ever}' other group,* -and the added assertion "this isn't a pink tea we're eoing to give." To Picket Nebraska Ruaris At the same tiine, J. t~. Kriege, head of the Nebraska group, has announced thai all Nebraska highways will ije picketed beginnins; Eept. 20. . Just before the governors ' agreed on [heir program, Thomas » 0. Tacy. the Council Bluffs law- I >CT who is defending the 60-odd pickcts..arre$ted here a. fortnight ago, summed 'the situation up this way: ...... "If they don't reach some agreement, which satisfies the farmers this 'holiday movement is going to spread more rapidly iMan ever before. And .right now we are liear- ing the distant rumblings of an economic storm." The only correction an sutsiit observer would make to that, remark would be to omit the word "distant." The storm is not so very far away. For one thing, the strikers have taken advantage of the truce to perfect ti-.cir organization. In each township [here is a leader, with a 1st of all the men in his neighborhood who will act as pickets. He also lias a complete schedule ol UK ronds that are (o be picketed. and. a schedule M the way in which picVets will be railed. Tf the strike is resumed, the blockai; can be put. into operation on a monism's notice, and it can he operated far more efficiently and, ef- IcctivcA- than before.

Tacy insists dial it is hard to overemphasize the grimness of the farmers' spirit. "They are in the desperate situation that any man is in when h? dcesn't know where his nva meal is coining from," he says.
