IT SHOULD PASS A Bill has been introduced in the House of Representatives by Congress- man Strong, member of the Farm Bloc, amending six different sections of the Federal Farm Loan Act. The Bill already has the approval of the Federation of Farm Bureaus. Principal among the amendments sought in the Bill is to increase tbeJ loan limit of $10,000 to one person to $25,000. The other amendments would change the manner of selection of lo- cal directors and minor details "in the present law. While it is true in a large number of cases that farmers already have a mortgage on their lands for more than present prices of farm produce will carry and yet there are any number of substantial farmers and stock breeders who could use more money to erect suitable buildings and otherwise improve their $wems for the raising and breeding of mare |lye- stock. The amendments to the law should be passed by cangress. Letters have been sent to th,t congressmen from this district by the different Federal Farm Loan Association offier llrging their support of the change. EGSLATION TO STABILIZE - A[N PRICE, DOUBTFUL  (Continttera Page 1) ending that farm legislation is more important thn a h|p tbi, , Considerablt tlmQ wa spent by Sen- " ".:  # with Mr Wallace, Secretary (1:0 r IL of Agriculture, and with the Chief As- sistant in ch*rg o (3rain and Grading with result that Mr. Wa]|a promised changes along the lines complained of. Senator Cliff said that Mr, Wtllace and his assistant agre with the Min- esot delegation a to a plan of ap- consisting 1$ a oard . o rpre- ntativ fr0 ch of the four " Ot and South Dakota nd Mitana, with the object  view to working out a grading system based on the milling tltt o the zra|n. [ An interview was alo had by Sen-] ator Cliff with th Land Bank']oard members, taking Up with tem t'he[ matter Of art adequate rUral Credits[ program that would aid Ire and eo-opertive association poviding for longer term Ioa'hs and larger amounts at lower interest rates. Sen- ator Cliff hen took the entire matter of farmer's relief program up with President Harding personally. Harding Favorable "President Harding gave me an in- terview of considerable length," Sen- ator Cliff said, "stating that he would do all he could to suppo the preent program before CongreSs, designed to aid farmers. The President seem- eel deeply interested in the agricul- tural situation and expressed himself as willing to do everything that he possibly could to bring about a per- manent relief program." Senator Cliff stated, "I believe that material advmrtage will be gained by the new plan of Rural Credits that has been proposedthat of furnishing money at longer time amt at lower rates--and I believe a material change will be made in the present plan of grading grain that will be of muah advantage to the farmer." Supporting the opinion given by Senator Cliff relative to the doubt of Congress passing legislation stablizing the price of grain, is that of Royal C. Johnson, Congressman from South Dakota, who gives the following rea- sons in a letter to Phil. C. Saunders, of Milbank, S. Dak., in reply to an ' inquiry: "Personally I have for a year and a half favored emergency legislation stablizing the price of grain, not as the permanent fixed policy of the country, but to rehabilitate the farmer for the present. So far as I know, this is the attitude taken by all the members from my state. "It would .be useless, however, for me to hold out any hope to you for the passage of such legislation at this session of congress for the reasors that there are more consttmers of farm products in the United State than producers, and they have acco,'0- ingly larger representation in con- gress. Besides, it seem exremelyl difficult to educate the city man as to conditions confronting the farmer, t I realize, as you do. that the fmnm" sells on a competitive market, while everything he buys has a,Ed i price. I think you must recognize the , fact that when we cannot get legisla-i tion, the farmer himself must corn- i bine, as have the fruit growers in California and producers of several other commodities." ADELPHI A one act play and a style show were the features of the program presented on Tuesday evening by Group B. of the Adelphi (High School Girl's Club.)
