Come In nnd see how upecdy. ourteous nnd pleasant this assistance is. tion, Jan. 2E, the Globe-Gazette in its account of the meeting quoted the entire' resolution on the associa- .tion's attitude toward the farm board, which consisted of the following three paragraphs: Support Market Act. "Whereas, since the farmers' elevators of Iowa have been instrumental in setting the price in the local market, they have every desire to have a part in determining the price at which their grain shall be sold in the terminal market." "Therefore, be it resolved that this Farmers Grain Dealers Association in convention assembled recommended IQ the local elevators that^they sustain the marketing net m its efforts to help the farmer distribute his own products insofar as they can do so and maintain their integrity, and independence. "Be it further resolved, that we see no menace to such independence in the farmers selling their grain to such agency, nor do we see a menace in farmer controlled agencies finding it necessary to borrow from the board to sign an agreement to deliver their grain to said agency during the term of such indebtedness." Globe-Gazette Right. Shortly after the issue of Jan 20 was off the press telephone calls were received stating that the last paragraph of the resolution was not adopted by the convention and that it was not even read. E. G. Dunn, Mason City attorney, who was elected a director of the association, and who apparently had been leading the fight against the adoption of resolutions supporting the farm board, told a Globe-Gazette representative that the paragraph on borrojving from the board was not adopted- at the conventH^ He stated he had a shorthand re'- 1 porter take down the resolution as read and that the "borrowing" resolution was not recorded. Made Investigation. H. A. Holman, Rockwell, a member of the resolutions committee, however, contended the paragraph on borrowing from the farm board was in the resolutions and that it was read.'He immediately began a general investigation which cleared up the subject and established the fact that the resolution in dispute was read and adopted without opposition at the convention here. A. communication from Milford Beeg-hry, Pierson, chairman of the resolutons committee, states that he read the paragraph in question be- for the' convention. Mr. Milford's letter states Mr. Dunn was the only member of the board of directors or of the resolutions committee that objected to the paragraph on the borrowing- .of money from the federal farm board.. Went to Convention. When the committee considered according to the request of Mr. Dunn and leaving the paragraph out, Mr. Holman stated he would introduce it from the floor, according to Mr. Beeghly. The committee then decided that the entire resolution as drawn up including the paragraph opposed by Mr. Dunn should go before the convention. A copy of the -resolution containing the disputed paragraph is being mailed to every elevator member of the association, Secretary W. H. Thompson, Fort Dodge, states.
