STOVER REVIEWS FARM INSTITUTE Closes Final Day of Talks on KGLO Forum '^Farmers' Union, members in Morth Iowa have accepted President Patton's call to service when n his recent New Year's message ie challenged the members of the organization to think daringly, to plan boldly and to act with greal intensity," said F, W. Stover Hampton, vice. president of the state organization, in closing the 2 day conference Wednesday alt ernoon with a talk over KGLO. "Throughout t h ' e conference there was a deep conviction tha 1945 is the year of decision and that gigantic reconversion anc post war problems are already upon us and that the need for intelligent planning and action is urgent," said Mr. Stover. "The reward for courageous action now to solve these problems and % grasp these opportunities is the greatest prosperity and wides security and the most stable peace this nation and the world hav ever known. . "The penalty for inaction, inde cision and evasion may be ou death as free men, as family typi farmers, death of our democrat and ultimately all democracy. A, President Pattou has often statct it, the choice is abundance publicly planned or scarcity private]' planned."

I there is to be a permanent world peace, the level of production must be maintained in peace time as in war time, Mr. Stover pointed out. "We must have a world organization with power to enforce de cisions against those who disturb or break the peace. There must b full employment, which must b maintained by private, enterpris if possible, by a combination o private enterprise and public un dertakings if necessary. Neither o these goals can be won and heli without the others."

Lu Young, director of FSA, said, "I don't think we would have an FSA today had it not been for SEAMAN DISCHARGED Iowa Falls -- Donald Nehring, eaman 2/c in the navy, has re- eived a medical discharge and las returned to his home.
