Recalling past criticism by farmers and others of union boycotts of products of firms being struck, Housewright said the action of farmers holding cattle off the market until the beef price freeze ends Sept. 12 "is the most effective boycott of our time. "But I don't hear them raising self-rightous voices against the boycott now," said Housewright, who was in town attend- ling the summer meeting of the AFLr-CIO executive council in suburban Oak Brook. However, Gorman said that | just as unions strike out of their own self interest, so farmers are holding cattle off the market "for their own self- interest, honest self-interest."
