AMERICAN FAhM BUREAU FEDER
ATION HOLDS PROVISION
(Chronicle's Washington Bureau.)
WASHINGTON, May 2. With the
adjournment of the executive com
mittee of the American Farm Bureau
federation after a two weeks' session,
some definite recommendations of
great consequence to the agricultural
industry have been placed before the
administration and congress.
The committee recommends the
abolition of that section of the trans
portation act designated a minimum
return to the railroads. The fclera
tlon demands equal protection by
tariff on agricultural products.
It Is opposed definitely and ag
gressively to the general sales tax.
Asks Free Lumber.
The bureau demands free lumber
and free fertilizer and greater liberal
ity in the matter of credit to the Fed
eral Reserve bank.
Among those who cooperated with
the American Farm bureau, during
the executive committee session in
forming a legislative policy, was Sec
retary Hoover, Secretary Wallace,
Governor W. P. G. Harding, of the
Federal Reserve board; S. F. Lever,
of the Farm Loan bank; Thomas Mc
Donald, chief of the bureau of public
roads, and Eognr r. Clark, chairman
of the interstate commerce commit
tee. These, together with many other of
ficials of the executive department,
gave considerable cooperation in the
discussion of the legislative program.
An authorized summary of what
was accomplished at this conference
indicates among other things, the fol
lowing: Fairness is Urged.
"The American Farm Bureau feder
ation believes that railroads must
render adequate service, but they
should receive a reasonable rate of
return based' upon fair and just val
uation. We realize that the farmers'
interest depends upon absolute fair
ness to the carriers and we desire to
call attention to the present situation.
"The transportation act of 1920 con
tained a provision which attempts to
compel the interstate commerce com
mission to make rates sufficient to
produce a minimum net return of 5,
6 percent or more above all expenses
and taxeB on the present value of
"The American Farm Bureau feder
ation believes this provision 1b pater
nalistic class legislation, as it at
tempts to make a government guar
anty on the cost plus basis. This pro
vision has caused the commission to
establish excessive increases in rates
which have served to paralyze Amer;
Hits At Guarantee.
"They have come at a time when
other lines of business are reducing
their chargee. The federation there
fore petitions congress to repeal im
mediately the guaranty provision in
section 15A of the Transportation act,
and to 'instruct the commission to
make a readjustment of railroad rates
back to pre-war basis in harmony
with other business.
"The federation recognizes that in
revising our tariff laws the sixty
seventh congress will levy duties up
on Imports, not upon a revenue basis
only, but with a view to the protec
tion of American industries.
