IOWA. DECEMBER 18,1930 Ntimbefi4' COpXTFJOlSOLUTIONS ARE ADOPTED TAX REVISION REPORT GIVEN ENDORSEMENT At the annual county Farm Bureau meeting Tuesday the following resolutions reported by Representative-elect A. H. Bonnstotter, of Garfield township, and H. D. Hutchlne, Algona, were adopted: 1—WE AGAIN CALL, your attention to the fact that up to the present time no farmers' organization has appeared, nor is any likely to appear, offering greater possibilities than the Farm Bureau Federation. This organization affords the fullest possible means of community development, of social and business Interchanges, of education, and of cooperative enterprises. It Is conducted along lines that are safe, sane, and practical. We urge all farmers and loyal friends to support the Farm Bureau by your membership; attendance at meetings; and your personal Influence In ev- very possible way to make it succeed. 2—BELIEVING THAT ONE of the most practical methods whereby the government could afford aid to farmers at this time would be by making it possible for them to obtain farm loans at low rates of Interest we favorite the guaranteeing of the ultimate value of Federal Land Bank bonds by the government. That is to say that investors in such bonds shall never have to sell same for less than par at maturity. Such assurance by the • government will almost certainly increase the confidence 6f the general Investing public In Federal Land Bank bonds, and cause their funds to become more readily available to supply the needs of farm owners through the Federal Land banks. 3_WE CALL THE ATTENTION of our members and farmers generally to the practice, which still continues, of quack stock and poultry remedy salesmen making forays upon unsuspecting farmers and persuading them to buy "cure-alls" largely consisting of water, with a slight tincture of some antiseptic, colored with soft soap; charging them exorbitant prices for the same. Farmers will be wise If they patronize the established, 'reputable .practitioners of veterinary medicine or permanently located drug stores, or confer with their county agent, when In need of remedies for the ailments of livestock or poultry. 4 -WE FAVOR THE study by some duly authorized and empowered committee or commission of the state or nation of the causes of increasing impoverishment of those states of the nation which are most highly endowed with natural wealth. The results of such investigations should be published, and made available to all the people, together with recommendations as to remedies for the present unwarranted situation 1).

FARM RECORDS TO BE ANALYZED HERE Uniform farm records and methods of analysis of farm business will be outlined by j/C. Galloway at meetings l n Kossuth next week Wednesday at the courthouse and Thursday at the Legion hall, gwea City. The meetings will begin at 10:30 a. m. and close at 3:30 p. m. Uniform records of this kind have been tried out, according to County Agent Morrison, and are becoming of ever increasing value to farm operators as a means of careful analysis of farm business and because of their value for the information gained through comparison with averages of records on a state, district and county bases. Two groups of farmers in the state who have kept records for several years have organized associations of about 150 memebrs each as farm management Groups. These groups are finding the system of real value as a guide in conducting 'arm operations. Illinois farm groups have for several years done similar record work. Since the average modern farm operator in Kossuth is now conduct ng a business capitalized at $35,000 to $40,000, well kept records are as mportant as In any other business Mr. Morrison believes. To aid farmers here who take up ;he system, Mr. Galloway will from time to time return to the county and visit farms as • well as hold meetings. There will be no expens' :o Individuals.
