Mr. Howard attended the second annual meeting of the Confer- once for the Prevention of Grain Rust. Mr. Howard thinks the farmer who stick to his industry soon will be re- warded by an era of higher prices. Mr. Howard told of a former sena- tor now practicing law in Chicago, who, in remodeling his home, had em- p|oyed several plasterers These uork- men were being paid $16 a day, extra pay for work on Saturday afternoons and Sundays, with the privilege of resting on Monday and Tuesday. "I believe," he said in telling of the cir- cunstance, "that these laborers have a right to a fair wage, but such obv- ious profiteering is intolerable. These high wages ,in the last analysis, fail on the farmer, who can not pass them to others. Mr. Howard said he was looking for- ward to a shortage of farm labor with corresponding decreased production. This step in the cycle will be followed by higher prices for those who tick to the farm. The Farm Bureau president told the delegates that grain rust is a serious menace in the wheat growing sections, just as is the cotton boll weevil in the South and the European corn borer in @ l LEGAL NOTICES @ CITATION FOR HEARING ON PE- TITION TO SELL, MORTGAGE OR LEASE LAND / Estate of Abel Martinson.
