"We were well received," reported O.C. Mayor Bob Dunlop on his return as a part of a Sioux County delegation that went to Washington, D.C.Mon- day to discuss retail meat prices with officials. Secretary of Agriculture Earl L. Butz met Tuesday afternoon with the delegation of Sioux County, Iowa farmers and businessmen led by Mayor Harlan Hummel of Hawarden and Bob Dunlop of Orange City. The group came to Washington to present rural America's side of the meat price controversy. Sixth District Congressman Wiley Mayne arranged the conference and took the group to the secretary's office. Livestock producers in the delegation gave Secretary Butz facts and figures to use in rebutting charges that farmers are to blame for recent hikes in retail meat prices. Butz commended thelowans for coming to Washington and said he found their presentation most helpful and "right on target." He singled out Frank Buyonlk, a Hawarden farmer, for special praise in having "told it like it really is in language all Amercans can understand." Butz pledged to continue to speak out for American farmers, defending them from "fake charges" that they are responsible for inflation. After a half hour with Butz, the meeting continued for another hour with Clarence D. Palmby, assistant secretary for international affairs and commodity programs.

The feeders were told by the Congressmen, "You're the men we want to hear from— come back in April for the Congressional committee hearing.
