Congressman Miller
Speaks For Farmer
Additional farm machinery and
repair parts—the crying need for
these items was
I strongly pre
sented by the
* Nebraska delega
tion to officials
\ of the War Pro
Iduction Board
and of the Of
fice of Price Ad
ministration at a
special meeting on Saturday, Feb
ruary 6.
We pointed out the fact that the
allocation of these to Nebraska
was unjust for the reason that the
formula originally set was on the
basis of the 1940 crop production,
a poor crop year for our state.
Available figures show that as
a rule Nebraska produces around
8% of the total food of the nation,
while we were given only 4% of
the farm machinery of the nation.
Spokesmen for the delegation said
that we felt the dealers had prop
erly gauged the real need of the
farmers in their communities and
now had the implements on their
floors to meet it. Therefore, we
urged that all machinery in the
hands of the dealers be released
for sale to the farmers in the
community so they could use it
now in the production of food
this year.
I strongly urge the local farm
groups to petition the State War
Board for release of the ma
chinery now in the hands of the
dealers. The officials mentioned
above say it has the power to
do this.
The Congress is beginning to
show signs of asserting itself. It
is demanding that those in au
thority recognize agriculture as
an important war industry and
that food is just as important as
bombs and bullets. There is bound
to be a critical shortage of certain
food materials. Folks living on
the farm can be thankful they
have food. The dollar may go
down in purchasing power, but a
quart of milk and a dozen eggs
will still have the same food
There is probably little danger
of a real food shortage as far as
the farmers of Nebraska are con
: cerned.
Nebraska people produce food.
I The cellars of many farm famil
| ies are full of canned vegetables,
j fruits and meats. In the eastern
j part of the country it is entirely
, different. Here we have millions
of consumers of food. There may
be a shortage of food in the east.
If those in authority will see the
picture clearly they will make it
possible for the farmers of Amer
ica to have not only the ma
chinery but the manpower to pro
duce food. If this is done, many
of our food problems will be
solved. There is no other answer,
just machinery and manpower.
Bureaucrats in the Department
of Agriculture have made many
mistakes. Congress must take a
hand. If a “food dunkirk" is to be
avoided Congress must see to it
that those who control the farm
program give the farmers the
necessary tools and labor to pro
duce the food for our armed
forces, civilians and allies.
Many statesmen are recom
mending that men in the military
service who are trained farmers
be furloughed back home to help
during harvest. That their recom
mendations are having some ef
fect is evidenced in the recent
speech of Economic Stabilization
Director Byrnes, who stated that
army officials are considering the
advisability of doing just this.
Folks from Nebraska who vis
ited our office this week were:
Lieut. Nelson R. Simpson of Chad
ron, who is now stationed at Fort
Belvoir, near here; Art McNees
of Alliance, working in the office
of OPA; Bill O’Connell of O'Neill,
and Bryant Steele of Omaha. Tell
any members of your family who
are in Washington that we would
be glad to have them come in and
get acquainted.

Welcome Words
from the
White House
THE Commander in Chief of wartime America
has paid banks the highest of compliments.
“The Bankers of America President Roose
velt wrote, “ . . . have answered the call to
service joyfully and with stout hearts ... a
record of accomplishment of which you all may
be justly proud." Welcome words, indeed.
They should give banks everywhere added
strength and courage to tackle the still greater
job that lies ahead.
Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
Mr* Kimball and Mr*. Worthing
ton, dressed soberly and wearing
their best black gloves, walked
along the stony country road back
toward Sophia Hardy** farm, to pay
their visit of condolence,
"How do you reckon she'll be
bearing up?" Mrs, Kimball asked
Mrs. Worthington Both ladles wore
their most solemn, funereal esprea
"A mighty severe blow," Mrs.
Worthington said. "Mighty severe
To lose your only spn, the mainstay
of your declining years. And such
a dreadful death, too—to go down
with a ship. Mercy!”
"The first of our boys from Hand
County to go, too," Mrs. Kimball
said, mourmuuy.

They stood on
the simple stone
' doorstep, with
downcast eyes,
getting them
selves into the
proper commiserative mooa.
• Come in!"
The voice was brisk and cordial.
They looked up in surprise. Sophia
herself had come to the door. As
they followed her into the parlor
they exchanged glances, with eye
brows lifted. Sophia was not even
i in mourning. The partor shades
were not even drawn.
"It's nice of you to come," Sophia
said. “Do sit down."
“We came," Mrs. Kimball said
almost reprovingly, “to tell you that
; our hearts are bleeding for you in
i your great loss.”
“We know how lonely you must be
j out here,” Mrs. Worthington said
, “With nothing to take your mind off
, . . off . . She sniffed and
reached in her purse for a hand
“Oh, 1. keep busy," Sophia said.
"I’ve just finished applying for the
Government insurance on Tom's
life.” .
The visiting ladies could not re

“I want to get it right away," So
phia said. "So I can put it into War
, Bonds. My boy hasn't finished flght
j ing yet, not by a long shot.”
The ladies were so occupied with
feeling horrified, so titillated by this
* callous behaviour in a bereaved
mother—that neither of them no
ticed Sophia’s hands. Under the
folds of her clean print dress,
against the seat of her chair, they
were tightly clenched.
