A special rate of fare and a third for the round trip has been arranged on all roads. The opening program will be held at University Farm, in co-operation with those in charge of Farmers' and Home Makers' week. Speakers will be J. W. Coverdale, national secretary, Mrs. Vera Schuttler of Missouri national- ly known woman leader in Farm Bu- reau work and, in all probability, Hen- ry Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture. Mr. Mallaee will attend if he can ar- range other engagements so as to per- mit the trip West. The second day will be given over to reports of the various Farm Bureau committees, department heads and persons directing the grain, livestock, wool and dairy products terminal marketing agencies with which the Bureau is co-operating. The Farm Buroau's Agricultural program for Minnesota in 1923 vdll be up for adoption. The closing day will be devoted to the annual business session and elec- tion of officers for the coming year. Farmers Voting In Bureau Referendum Farm Bureau members all over Min- nesota are voting on questions con- cerning state and national legislation of importance to agriculture.
