'Ho Fa.mor and Hi Taxation Problem
Song .... .. . Quartet
Ilcpoit of Legislative Committee
Iteport of Delegate Cowley, to Omaha
This program was given by tho
Highland Farmers' Union Local last
Friday night, the 2Gth. The writer
of this article was one of the visitors
and to say that we were entertained,
i no name for it, we were enraptured
and enthralled by the snontaneous
cleverness of every one present to
make one feel at home. The applause
they gave the different numbers on
the program was enough to make one
think that it was indeed a grand suc
cess. The recitations were of the
highest order ami were well delivered
and the song, "Fishing," oh, boy! that
male quartet lias a future.
Facing the facts, that our local un
ion programs have been fewer in num
ber and less interest shown, it was t
real ttcat to meet with a real live
local once more, ami from the interest
shown by the young people of the
community, they need have no fear
of the social life of tho Farmers
Union in that vicinity.
In the tux problem taken up that
evening, let me quote Representative
Henry F. Kaincy of Illinois, who in
an addtcss to the farmers said that the
Federal Taxes fiave increased from
forty-six cent per capita to $30.00 in
the last sixty-five years. En'. 'mating
that the National Budget will continue
at approximately $3,000,000,000 (and
indications arc that this amount of
Federal Taxation will increase rather
Snace' forbids that wc take more of
our editor's type, but let it bo said that
all the bright lights di not shino in
Washington, D. C that Nebraska
has its share right here at home and
Webster county is doing her lint to
m..ke the world brighter and we be
live with "Ciuie" that "day by day"
n every way, the world is growing
better and bettor.
A giod report of the State Convcn
ticn was given by Charles Cowely, a
delegate to the State Convention and
his opinion is that our .late convcn
ti ins are growing, belter and better,
in fact, ths convention was called
"The bet ever" convention.
You will have noticed that I have
used the word "convention" six tines
in the lust few sentences. This is t
remind other delegates that wc would
like to hear from them.
Gne u.s your views and opinions
of how we osn better cur convent on
both state and county and the officers
of these organizations will do all tiiey
can t make th's "the farmers' jubilee
ear" of 1!)23.
