HUMBOLDT MAN SENDS UNCENSORED REPLY TO DICKINSON'S ATTACK ON AAA Dick "Ignorant of Farmers' Interest," Says Willard Edwards The All-Star Lineup... When You Want Electric Refrigeration, it's ;• Frigidaire When You Want a Modern Radio, it's Philco When You Adopt a Modern Heating unit, it's Hotentot Oil Burner When You Improve Your Kitchen, it's with Skelgas When You Get a Washer or Ironer, it's a * Maytag And They Are All Sold at BJUSTROM'S Ka>y Terms tiroati-r \ ahu-s Auction -Money With Kvery Purciia.-si' To the Algona Upper Des Moines: L. J. Dickinson again takes issue with the AAA program in an article in the Des Moines Register under the date of August 9, entitled, "Thinks Farmers Can Count Hogs," charging that Iowa farmers are being denied promised benefit payments because of political pressure brought by residents of other states and a desire of the Democratic party to provide Jobs for deserving party workers. I am thoroughly convinced that every cnarge that the senator makes and every comment I hav< read by him is a deliberate and maJiciovis misstatement. It surely could not be that an U. S. senator could be so needlessly ignorant in regard to the AAA program. The facts are that some of the other states gave a much larger overstatement of hogs produced than did Iowa, and complained that Iowa was being favored. The Iowa farmer welcomes the chance to prove that his statements are correct and does not resent the re-checking as the senator would have you believe. If the senator would interview a few of the "thousandn of farmers" which he claims to have acquantance with, he would be relieved of ail fear of a "breakdown of a bureaucratic system of control for agriculture," as he is pleased to term it. I am wondering •vhy, if (.he senator has such a wide acquaintance among the farmers of Iowa, he has not taken at least a little bit of interest in their welfare since he has ben at Washington, and why, since someone else has taken a human interest in the farmers' welfare, he is ro persistently ready to criticize. It seems to the farmers of Iowa that he is interested only in his own interest nncl advancement and wholly ignorant of their interest. Agadn, when have the economists or statisticians of the Department of Agriculture ever made any pretense at counting the farmers hogs It is the Iowa farmer who has counted his neighbors hogs. I ask the senator when any Republican or Democratic administration so utterly disregarded party lines when selecting men to carry out a program? It is no doubt true that corn would be $1.25 a bushel now if it were not for government regulation. If the senator was in such close touch with the thousands of Iowa farmers as he would have us believe I dare say that he would not have made that statement. It is common knowledge among the Iowa farmers that had it not been for the AAA program the corn that wns scaled at 45c a bushel would have been forced on the market at not to exceed lOc a bushel and the speculators, not the farmers, would have profited on Iowa's 1933 corn crop. A farmer should not give an United States senator advice, Ibut it would seem as though the senator should acquaint himself with the AAA program or interview a lew of the 165,000 Iowa farmers who so wholeheartedly support the only administration that has ever offered the farmer n square deal before he makes any further charges.— Willard Edwards, Humboldt, Iowa.
