4 Resolutions Adopted byAFBFat 1943 Annual Convention (Continued from Page One) formulation of a program of understanding and action that may build for the world a fair economy and p lasting peace. National Farm Program Meeting our war goals in farm production is the most important responsibility of farm people. For some time after hostilities cease, "ability to produce" will be the major farm problem. During this period all governmental policies should give full consideration to the Nation's interest in protecting this ability of farmers to produce food in amounts necessary to meet these food requirements or goals. The transition of production from war needs to the needs of peace-time poses many problems for agriculture, industry, and labor. Full production by all groups to meet the demands for goods, with equitable price relationships prevailing between all groups, is a vital necessity in this transition. Price supports for this period have been authorized, and in many cases, dire...

To the extent that governmental aid is r pcessary, it should be carried on as far ■ '.'a possible by governmental units closest to the people, and where federal action is required, such powers should be administered as far as possible through agencies locally responsible and which can adapt ?uch programs to local conditions.

January 1, 1944 Quotes (Continued, from Page Six) the agency to try to influence legislation. In some areas they carried on an organized vendetta against the Farm Bureau. Political clearance is required before employees are hired. A former employee of the agency now publishes a periodical which apparently goes to all AAA employees, and which many of those employees regard as having semi-official status. This publication's primary purpose seems to be to revile and discredit the Farm Bureau and the Extension Service. Employees of the agency made a definite attempt to band all cooperating farmers into a new nation-wide farm organization. In all this, you have a perfect example of bureaucracy gone wild. Farmers, this is your program—created to serve you and your calling. The question you must decide is whether you are going to compel those who formulate and administer the program to run it in the interest of the farmer, or permit the payrollers to run it in the interest of bureaucracy. ...

Farm Bureau members in the 53 counties now organized will come together at county meetings scheduled for January and February to consider making a constructive program for agriculture at the county level and to study the state and natfonal programs already adopted.

6 Subsidies (Continued from Page One) ning of runaway prices. 2. Organized labor's precipitate decline in prestige brought about by the flurry of December strikes and strike threats and climaxed by the sensational New Year's Eve charges attributed to a high ranking government spokesman that the labor outbreak had given Germany fresh hope, would slow up the end of the war, cost thousands of American soldier lives. This blistering indictment of labor leadership was construed as marking the waning of labor influence in the national Capital and probably providing the long-await-ed spark to set Congress in action to put labor's house in order. The statement evoked a hearty "amen" from public and press, later received a left-handed blessing from the office of the President. The December developments, for the first time in eleven years, put organized labor on the defensive and may have signified the beginning of the end of labor's luxurious honeymoon at the White House.
