FARM GROUPS SHOULD GET TOGETHER - Gruhdy Center Register — A group of farmers in a southwest Iowa county a few months ago got together and tried to work out some ,plan which there could be a stop made prices. The movement spread into ties and soon a riew farm organization was formed and they adopted the name of The National Farmers Organization (NFO).. The. has been extended souri. it now claims is a lot of members to join up within a period of a few montfts.fcMaatfwidely known leader in the orgahizatignjgj?^'- TUrner,' a republican, a former Iowa governoiv : and 'an/extensive land, owner and practical : farmer. NFO is demanding 100*.per cent parity and. a floor of $20 per cwt. for hogs and $30 per cwt. for cattle. : . ' The National Farmers Union (NFU), an organization which operates in 27 states and 'claims a membership of,300,000, is re-organizing in Iowa. 20 years ago the Farmers Union had a large mem- . bership in- Iowa. That membership has beeri gradually diminishing, partly because of quarrels among leading members and a few years ago the National ^Organization took the Farmers Union charter away from what was left of that organization in this state. Now an effort is being made lo revive the Farmers Union in Iowa and to build up a membership. The Farmers Union is asking for 90 percent parity for farm prices and floor placed under the price of hogs and cat'tle. In-as-much as the aims of NFO and NFU. arc about the same, the : two organizations should get together. As a united group they would have a much stronger voice in their demands for better government price supports. There is room for two strong farm organizations in Iowa and .in the nation. If more than that number try to gain a foothold the organizations will weaken each other and thc'ir influence in government. * * * The experienced husband, and a good one, is the fellow who feels in his pocket everytime he passes a mail box. > 'in- the study, and the charting of agriculture's new directions. -, * * : ». . ..'..,.

',. We don't khqw : why the'speed limit was set anyway when the law provides for arresting anyone driving in an unsafe or imprudent manner. 'This should cover anyone speeding at more than 65 mph at night.' It looks t'o us'aaif Herrick and Moyer went to too much unnecessary trouble and pains to try to establish a useless speed limit that has .earned them more criticism than anything else. » * * REPUBLICAN PROSPERITY Indianola Tribune — Republican politicians hail the "greatest prosperity this country has ever known." Reading the newspapers, we see that General Motors, Ford, DuPont, and many other big corporations are doing right well. Unfortunately farmers are not sharing in the boom which big business "is enjoying. All of- this reminds us of the days of Coolidge and Hoover when farm prices were depressed and industry was still prosperous. In time the farm depression also caused trouble in pur industrial cities? Why is this so? A lower net income for farmers means that they will spend less money with local merchants. Gradually goods in stores begin to pile up on the shelves. Merchants will order less from jobbers and manufacturers. Then the manufacturer's goods begin to pile up and he lays off men. Unemployed men in cities cannot buy much and in this way the vicious circle continues. Many of us learned this lesson during the days of the Hoover Administration. Will the Republican politicians have to learn it all over again? We believe that Ezra Taft Benson, Republican Secretary of Agriculture, does not represent the interests of the farmers. We also believe that he does not represent the interests of the nation as a whole because his farm policies will eventually plunge the entire country into a depression. « * * WORRY WARTS VINDICATED Paul Wood in Sheldon Mail — Worry Waits are Vindicated according to the Providence Journal. A learned psychiatrist has come to the aid of that much-derided human type, the Worrier. He says that realistic worry in the face of danger or distress, is the mark of a healthy mind. Not to worry about anything on the contrary, is a danger signal. People who admonish the worrier to "wor-" ry about nothing" are actually directing him down the pathway that leads to madness! So look out! There is a distinction between realistic worry ;md the unrealistic and frequently causeless worrying which is automatic with chronic worriers — a form of insurance they take out against trouble to come which pays a small dividend of relict when Doomsday doesn't a) rive. At any rate, all hail the vindicated Worry Wyrt, and his healthful and normal worries! And let the smug non-worrier beware. He should, one infers, instantly hie himself to some good psychiatrist whose bill, when he gets it, will give him something realistic to worry about und preserve his tottering sanity! The writer personally knows the tendency to worry, but we are told we carry it tgo far! 1 '' i » *' c.;'' i. t \ ' . r .^| V.;. ; .
