stonci tools the dace of Mr Lariiok
who was to he Mr Copley's colleague
but could not lie present on account of
t-lckuos. The debaters for I he nega

Mr. Copley, the first speaker on the
cfiinnatlve opened the debate stating
Jhnt tho question for debute was;
Kesnlved. that the farmers should

fcefore the House of Representative to
be noted upon. Of tills number of
bills, no bill hasauythluj; in it to pro

who opene'l hislde of the question by
Mating 'he cpistlon for ilcoate as;
" The vniloi. farm oriralilz.atlons
sl'ouhl not iix for direct political
action ' Mr om called the atten
tion of Hie .Im-.m-h to the fact lhat Mr.
tropic . Ids h able opponent, had
in'istale I the i nation for debate and
Iherofoie his iiguinptit was not based
upon the (iiciion for debate. Mr
Doom -luted (h i theie were tinly four
funnels orgniiz.itlons in Nidnuska,
that were s'ate wide in , existence
These ere 1 1. l''a filler's Union, tho
Kipiltj, N'on I'mtlsnti leaKue, and the
lliaiiiu Mr. Iloom sta'ed that he
was '.vl tli his li"iioiube opponent when
it came to th funnel h uniting, but
when it came lo the different farm or
gunlzalions uniting, it never could lie
dune, because if they were to unite and
try to puss laws, one org'inlzitlon
would want this, and would waul
something clue, another would still
want things a little different and it
would be a fight on right there, they
could not get along auv letter than a
cat and dog trying to eat out of the
same bowl Mr. llootn brought out
the fact that some man would not
change his way of voting because
"Well, inv father and and my grand
fa her all voted a straight ticket and
It's too'late now for me do chanire '
He stateil there were too many diiret
cut idois of tho farmers, and the
fanners in tho different organize
lions to gt together and form direct
political action. The lust statementof
Mr. Iloom, hearing with It the most
weight, was that the bylaws an i
ijonstituti'ins of ihusc four stafe-wi le
orgaul.ali ins would lot permit that
organization to enter into politicks for
direct actn n.
!r. H'oner, the seen i-l speaker foi
the aillruritive, did not restate the
qucst'on imt held lo the question as
.Mr. tjoplev, hi eollcaeue, luid statoil
it that tio fanners, instead of tin
fill II) oivimizutious, should unite for
political action. Mr. Stoner read of
the hlstoi v rd' farmers fifty years ago
trying to u'ei duecr political action.
He stated that Captain John Smith,
the leudu- of tho Virginia Colony in
l(!07, once -aiil, "They that do not woi k,
shall not cut". Mr. Stoner then point
ed out that it had been that way witli
the farmers of Nebiaska the past three
years and that it was time that they
organized for diiect political action.
Mr. .Stoner was only getting nicely
started when tiniH was called. He
pleaded for more time to talk and his
his hnuoratdc opponent was kind
enough to grant him all the titno he
wanted. Mr. Stoner then read of ha -pollings
back In liiblc limes to help
nold his argument together, lie end
ed that debate by reading u slimt
speech by President Harding, ivhlc'c
stated that the fanners sluhild nolle
for direct political action.
The s.-eond speaker on tho negative,
Mr. Koertner, pulnl"d out again, the
fact that their honorable opponents
hud ini-stated tho question. Mr. ICoert.
uer refilteil the s'litemenf uiiidli by Mr
Stoner, his h inoiubl" opponeu', that
the oiyunr I'tou of some IH'lv vcus
ago, lr. Uoi-rtner went on to Mute
Unit this organiz. itlon had failed, and
also thui it did not go into politics be
cause it-i bylaws would not permit
-.iieh ac. ions, Mr. ICoertner stated
thai Wallace, in the House of Kepre
o'litat ives uiaito the statement hefoie
the lloiiso thai it would do for the
fHt'iuei's to unite and form ami estab
lish stable pi Ices for their grain and
livestock After Mr I-Coeitner talked,
the ullii inutive agieed to have the neg
ative have their rebuttal if they wish,
Mr. Iloom gave the rebuttal, only
stating that the next time that he hop-
ed the question for debate would be
written In large letters across tln buck
of I lie room, so there would be no mis
lake in the question for debnle.
The negative icbuttal was followed
by one given by Mr. Copley. Mr. Cop
ley made a few further statements to
prove some of the first statements lie
had made. Mr. Copley said that the
faun organizations of California or
those of New Iihigland states would
not be conserved about the utV.iirs of
tho farmers of Nebraska should unite
for Direct Political Action

".some day, In Thine own good titno

About an hour after this John Win

The winning of the grand chanjpion

die expert care on the part of Felbc
Roy, who as herdsman at the Okla

for Oklahoma lung every since tiic
I'ig's birth. Felix Roy's story is in
lerestmg as showing how pig club
work can arouse the real interest of
a l)jy. When 10 years of age he join
