Our prosperity depends upon our continued industrial
activities and every one of these should be maintaianed at
the maximum capacity.
The prosperity of the small farmer, the small producer
and the small manufacturer is as essential to the State and
the Nation as the prosperity o f the big man. Every one of
our occupations should be given equal consideration regard
less of the amount produced.
Every encouragement must be given to increase produc
tion and this can be obtained only through assurance that the
small farmers as well as the big man is going to receive his
proportionate share of the war expenditures, and that there
will be a market for his products and a profit to him for his
work based proportionately upon his cost of production.
There must be equality in all phases of our State and
National industry, and the small fellow must not be forgot
ten, overlooked or crowded out through the rush for big
things and big orders and accomplishments.
