LINCOLN COUNTY FARMERS
When a Million and a Half Farmers Unite for Progress. You Can Bet Your Bottom $ There'll Be Something Doing
A million und a half fanners have banded together for the sake of our American farm industry. Clear purposed, keen minded and alert, they are fully aware of the magnitude
of tho many problems they have undertaken to solve and they ar6 imbued with determination to "stick" to the finish. These farmers are made up of the fanners of Nebraska
and of Lincoln County and they propose to carry out their plans through the organizations of the Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation and the American Farm Bureau Federa
FARMING Imb gained recognition an tho great wealth producing In
dustry of tho country; farmora of tlrn Nebraska Farm IJurcau Feder
ation can demand and expect tho co-oporatlon of all related Industries
In tho solution of the problems which, whllo peculiarly tho farmer's
arc essentially the nations. "With! every farmer In Lincoln County, In
Nebraska and the United States thoy can bo solved.
Tho farmer Is one of tho chief user of tho railroads both as a producer"
nd as a consumer. Ho has a right to a volco In their administration.
Tho freight sorvlco must bo lmndlcd that cars are available to market
his crops. Water transportation Ib shcaper than rail and should bo a
materially' helpful complement to tho railroad systems. Tho farmer
wants an ocean port facing both tho (Atlantic and tho Gulf. Ifo want
good roads for local transportation, Ills business needs them It Is
to tho country's good t o see that ho gots them.
WHY THE TARIFF LEGISLATION
Tho debased money of foreign nations rodnces their producing cost In
comparison with ours. Tho farmers of the United States are faced
with Uie llklihood of a dumping of chcuR foreign farm produce on our
markets to compete with the native crops. Some method must be de
vised to prevent such a disaster and yet give foreign nations every
chance to build up a credit by creating an export trade.
CREDITS FOR MARKETLNt!
Adequate transportation will help to solvo the problems of distributive
marketing, but it won't prevent dumping immediately tm harvest, with
tho resultant shattered market and crushing losses to tho form indus
try llko thoso of 1920. Tho farmer needs credit to market his crops
gradually to meet tho actual consumer demand and ho needs crodlt to
pay transportation to markets whore his produce Istiocded. Our pres
ent credit system, based on a 60-day paper, will not provide It. Some
method must bo devised to enable tho farmer to borrow money on
paper maturing at distributed Intervals during tho fall, winter and
spring. Ills business needs such credit It is to the nation's interest
to sco that ho gets it.
A CREDIT FOR WOULD MARKETING
Many of our crops are raised partly for forclgu consumplon. On thoso
crops Is largely based our foreign trade. Because tho world owes tho
United States immense sums, tho money of many European, countries
is almost worthless for purchasing in this country. They hao not as
yet got sufficiently readjusted to have goods to trade. Something must
bo done to enable them to buy. Tho American Foreign Finance Com
mission, recently formed, will holp, but Its capitalization Is only a bun'
dred million dollars.
A PROTECTION AGAINST INDIVIDUAL
Tho market break of 1920 cost the American farmer from five to sev
en billions of dollars. No other Industry could have absorbed bucIi a
loss; tho farming industry can't do It year after year. In many cases It
has swept away tho patient work of a decado, has robbed tho farmer
not only of every cent of his year's profits, but has eaten far into his
principal and nullified the labor o fyears. It must not happen again.
WHAT THE AMERICAN FAItM "I RUAU FEDERATION CAN 1)0
BETTER PRICES l'OIl YOUIt PRODUCTS ,
Do you want a fair prlco for your wheat and livestock? Tho American
Farm Bureau Federation Is at work dovoloplng a plan of marketing
grain to eliminate speculation, etablllzo markta and lnsuro a reasonable
return to farmers. Tho Commlttco of Sovontcon is mado up of exports
In grain marketing, representing all farmers' organizations. A similar
committee as been appointed to tako up livestock marketing.
AN UNFAIR LAND TAX
Would you caro to havo tho Nolan bill becomo a law? Tho Nolan bill
provides a 1 tpor cont tax on all land values nbovo 10,000 but exompts
improvements; attempts to shift moro of tho taxes on to farm land and
off all other property. It nimB to rorco down the price of land and.
farm products while holding up wage scales.
Tho American Farm Bureau Federantlon Is fighting this proposal. It
has.over 300,000 organized farmers on record against It. Congress
will go slow In passing to Nolan bill at tho behest of organized labor
and manufacturing interests with tho farmers solid against It and
organized In tho American Farm Bureau Federation.
DAYLIGHT SAYING LAW REPEALED
Do you appreciate tho repeal of the Daylight Saving Law ? Tile
American Farm Bureau Federation is directly responsible for tho re
peal of thlB law over tho president's veto. The Federation, through Its
officers, mado Congress understand that tho law was working a hard-

ship to farmers, and that tho farmers wore organized in opposition to
it Congress repealed tho law. These aro only a few of tho important
measures the American Fann Bureau is at work on.
THE LINCOLN COUNTY FARM BUREAU
Tho Lincoln County Farm Bureau Is working with and thru tho Stat,e
Farm Bureau Federation to support tho big constructive program of
tho American Farm Bureau 'Fedoraton. Every farm bureau member
has a direct part in the Couty, State and American Farm Bureau work.
The farmer who joins his county farm bureau automatically becomes
a member of tho Nebraska State Fann Bureau and the American Farm
