On Farm Bureau Law

appeal from the board of county
commissioners of Hall county, seek
ing to test the validity of the farm
bureau law, ha resulted in the af

cctnty district court that the law is
alid, the supreme court today de

body or as creating new county of
ficials." The action was brought by mem
bers of the farm bureau of Hall
county to compel the members of
the county board to make an appro
priation of county funds for the pur
pose of carrying on the work of the
