AS WAR MEASURE
President of Association in
pening Address Declares
Sales of New Machinery
Must Be Held Down.
The implement men are asked to
torego the profits of heavy sales of
new machinery in order to save the
steel and other necessaries for the
munitions of war. Nojie other than
President C. E. Gallagher of the Mid
west Implement Dealers' association
has asked this of his fellow implement
men. When the convention opened
at the Hotel Rome yesterday
President Gallagher, in his opening
"The time has come when there is
not a single inch of room in this
country for anyone but an American.
"We should encourage the farmers
to repair their old machinery ind
ma'- use of it to the fullest capacity,
thusXi'iminating the necessity of pur-
masing new machinery, lhe result
will be the saving of the freight haal
ind the material needed for ammuni
tion and other war implements.
'This may seem like a peculii po
sition to be taken by Us who arer en
gaged in the sale of implements.
' Measure of Patriotism.

-otninsr out the highest sense o
patriotic duty could impel us to this
course. But if the boys in the trenches
are willing to lay down their lives
for the cause we should be willing to
fol-get the profits to insure the soldier
bcjys plenty of munitions of war, that
they may fight and fight to win.
Mr. Gallagher suggested that the
implement men help the government
in.other ways. He suggested that they
assist m relieving the congestion in
the railway system by getting in early
shipping ordars in the implement bust
ness. "As every little bit in these
time adds to the burdens," he said,
"sp every little bit subtracted takes
that much therefrom.
; To Encourage Big Crops.
lie suggested also that the imple
ment men foster and encourage great
er effort at crop production by the
farmers by the offer of prizes for the
largest yield or corn or other gram
per acre, or the best beeves or hogs
produced under given conditions. He
suggested that this could be done by
the organization of farmers clubs.
The-implement men gathered rap
idly yesterday for the three days'
convention of the Midwest Implement
Dealers' association. The general ses
sions are being held at the Hotel
Rome. .A big banauet given bv the
