Use Own Judgment
In Selling Products
Waterloo. Ia., Nov. 17. That the
farmers of Iowa would use their own
judgment in disposing of the pro
ducts of their farms seemed to be the
general opinion of the agricultural
men of the state upon leaving the
meeting of farmers and bankers to
day. Bankers declared they had
gone the limit in financing farmers
and recommended the selling oi farm
products to help liquidate their obli
gations. About 500 bankers and miners at
tended the meeting held to seek some
way to overcome present difficulties.
B. H. Cunningham, secretary of the
Farm Bureau federation, Ames, la.,
in an address quoted figures to show
that it cost the Iowa farmer 75 cents
to produce a bushel of oats and said
the farmers were hauling it away for
40 cents. He said every bushel of
corn cost $1 to produce, while the
farmer was forced to sell it for 60c.
"These figures will show beyond
doubt what will happen to the farm
er who is payine high rental or the
man who made a small payment on
his farm recently purchased.", he said.
He advised the farmer to "sit tight"
until "grain gets somewhere near the
prive of production." He also stat
ed Iowa farmers were willing to as
sume some of the loss but did not
deem it their duty to shoulder the en
tire responsibility of bringing prices
back to normal.
