The for tieth annual convention of the Farm ers' National congress opened here today to continue through Friday. "I believe the farmers of this great country are justified in refusing to sell below cost of production," said O. G. Smith. Kearney, Neb., in his annual address as president. "I am not one of those who believe we must have $3 for wheat. If farmers in the wheat belt can procure $2.25 to $2.40 they will raise and sell in the mar kets all the wheat necessary to feed the world." "One system of marketing that has been suggested is the Ftoring of wheat on the farms, and protecting the sam,e by insurance, and also some arrange ment to be made to allow the owner to draw a part of its value as is done on warehouse receipts, and not rush their grain into the markets as has been done in the past. This most unfair deflation was the result of a well organized conspiracy on the part of the grain gamblers and some of the captains of finance which was intend ed for a general drive tol over levels, and the farmers were again made the goat." i'We' must adopt some method whereby country life can be more satisfactory to our boys and girls." "The federal farm loans were of great benefit to th-e farmers. It is to be deplored that all progress in the operation of the banks was stop ped by the suit brought by the Bank ers' Mortgage association attacking the constitutionality of the act. This congress should go on record praying for a favorable decision for the far mers in this suit." "I hope that we can go on record here at this congress demanding that our national congress be requited to enact a law prohibiting the future option trading in ail food products, and more particularly that of wheat and its products as now permitted by the various boards of trade and grain exchanges in the United States." "I am thoroughly convinced that American Farm Bureau Federation is the organization through which all individual farmers' as well as all organizations can speak as one voice." i Good clean rags wanted at the Journal office. tfd.

American Legion members should always be found supporting the duly constituted officers in the mainten ance of law and order; protecting the constitutional guaranty of free speech and a free press; and main taining "a hundred per cent Ameri canism based on fair play and a square deal for all."
