GODFREY HEARD VIA WOI, AMES, RADIO PROGRAM Geo. W. Godfrey, Prof. T. W. Schultz, and someone from Pocahontas county whose name was not not distinctly given, took part in a radio program via WOI, Ames, Sunday morning, and presumably thousands of listeners found it interesting,. i'aformatiiTe, and convincing. The general subject was whether a farmer, from; the standpoint of his own individual, immediate economic welfare, couild afford to be a nom-coo'perator as regards j the new farm act, and the argument was conducted after the manner of three men who had casually come' together for breakfast at the Godfrey farm southeast of Algona. Godfrey us Doubting Thomas. Professor Scttultz is an Ames agricultural economist whose views carry weight The Pocahontas member of th& trio, it is be- lievei here', is a farmer. Mr. Godfrey, though n« now lives at the college, personally directs operations on his farm. In the conversation Mr. Godfrey placyed the part of a farmer who was seeking information on the question whether he should cooperate. In a give-and-take exchange of information it was demonstrated that he could not afford to take the risks of staying out and that in all probability lie would benefit in several ways by oing in. ' The versimilitude to an actual conversation between the three men was striking. They may have been speaking from prepared manuscripts, but if so the fact was not discernible by radio listeners. They hesitated, hemmed and hawed, and indulged in a little bad grammar in just the same way that any trio would do in unpremeditated conversation. Program Cleverly Done. Of course it was propaganda iu favor of the act, but there was nothing offensive about it, according to one Algonian who listened in on it. This hearer thought the program was most cleverly carried out and that veteran actors could not have done half so -.veil. "Anyone," he said, "is entitled to air his own views, provided it is fairly done and the right of the opposition to do likewise is maintained."
