About 50 farmers were present, to hear Jay LojUiry. Corning, founder of the organi/ation. and Dnanc Orion, farmer from Atlantic, explain the objectives of the movement. According to Lophry. the organization has membership groups in about 100 rmmlio's in four states. "We are 100T- nonpolitical." lie said. "We only want the rest of the country to see things a little bit the farmers way." Lo.uhry stated that "100% of parity" for the farmer is a prime need] He said that at present such parity would mean $21.50 hogs, $1.75 corn, and $31.00 for top cattle. The two organizers were of the opinion that the slim attendance here was due to the fact that crops were by and large good in this area. Apparently, feelings for the organization are warmer in areas where crops have been poor this year. A SI.00 fee was asked of farmers for membership in the National Farm Organization, with headquarters in Corning, Iowa. til' !
