Vici-Presidential Candidate Asks
Non-Partisan Solution Under
Hoover Leadership.
Agricultural Situation, He Ex
plains, Is of Deep Economic
Importance to Citizens.
Republican Tict-Presidential Candidal, i
Senator Curtis, In his Address .of
Acceptance, stressed the impor
tance of prompt action on the
question of farm, aid. "The prob
lem," he declared, "Is of deep
seated eeonomie Importance to
every citizen without nari to oc
cupation or political prrty." He
added the significant thought that
"properly its solution Is and al
ways should be, non-partisan." For
the leadership of such a non-par-'tisan
movement, Invo.ving the ex
penditure of hundreds of millions
of dollars by the federal govern
ment, he declared that the leader
ship should be Hoover's a man
well worthy of the party's choice.
HE question of the proper re
lief for Agriculture is a try
ing and perplexing one. The
problem is of deep-seated
economic Importance to !
every citizen wiinoui regaru io uib
or p&rty
citizen without regard to his
Properly, lta solution is and always
hould be, non-partisan. I am con
vinced that it a small joint committee
of the House and Senate were ap
pointed to study the problem and to
find Its proper solution, the necessary
relief quickly could and would be af
forded. The Committee could be as
sisted in its task by the advice and
experience 'of,, the most capable ex
perts on the subject whose services
can be obtained.
It will be remembered that tor
years we had great trouble with the
problem ot settling our standard of
value. The failure to settle the ques
tion .had brought forth the Greenback
Party, and later the Free Silver party.
In 1899, that great and able statesman
from Maine, Thomas B. Reed, appoint
ed a Committee of Eleven to draw

ily that great and vexing question,
surely a similar committee of able leg
islators specifically charged with the
task could agree upon an agricultural
relief plan which would be equally
The solution will bt$ found, and
found promptly. Our party has
pledged Itself to the development and
enactment of measures which will
place the agricultural Interests of the
United States on a basis or economic
equality with other Industries, to In
sure Its prosperity and success.
Philosophy ot Farmlnj
Encouragement of Agriculture al
ways has been a Republican doctrine.
It Is a necessary part of our philos
ophy of government. Agriculture Is
the basic Industry of the country and
In the very nature of things will ever
be so. Whatever Is to the detriment
ot the farmer Is, eventually, to the
detriment ot all our citizens; his wel
fare and prosperity are Inevitably re
flected In the welfare and prosperity
ot the whole nation.
Many plans for the encbi raqement
of Agriculture have been proposed,
and many have been given effect by
our party. In the course of my polit
ical lite every one which In my opin
ion promised an appreciable measure
of sound relief has had my whole
hearted and active support.
Of recent years, two farm measures
have been Introduced by me Id the
Senate. Two Democrat members ol
the House Joined Id their preparaton
and introduction. The first wai
known as the Curtls-Aswell Bill. .It
created an Interstate Farm Marketing
Association. Its purpose was to pro
mote and stimulate the orderly How
ot agricultural commodities In com
merce; to remove, burdens and e
straiuts on such commodities In com
merce; and to provide for the process
lng, preparing for market, bend ling,
pooling, storing and marketing of au
ricultural commodities through io op
erative marketing associations. The
object of this measure was to place
the marketing organizations under the
ownership and control of the farmers
themselves. The other measure was
known as the Curtis Crisp Bill. Its
object was to enable the farmers' to
stabilize their markets against undue
and excessive fluctuatloas; to pe
serve advantageous domestic . mar
kets; and to minimize speculation and
waste in marketing. '
Republican Record !
Without the help Which the Re pub
licao party has given, the agricultural
situation would be infinitely worse
than It Is. The Capper-Volstead Act
gave to the farmer the right to engage
in collective buying and co-operative
selling. In every possible way the
Republican administration bas en
deavored to give practical and sub
stantial effect to that right.
The Department of Agriculture fills
an Important place In the work of aid
lug and "Ivlslng the former, it is our
policy to widen each year as much as
possible the scope of the Department's
effectiveness. In the last year alone,
$2,298,172.00 was spent in particularly
valuable research work covering nu
merous classes of agricultural prod
ucts, lnclullng cattle and swine It Is
estmated that $4,157,887.00 will be re
quired for tbis work for the c mlng
year. Nearly $3,000,000.00 is expend
ed annually by the Department -of
Agriculture In broadening agricultural
nr '.ets. , .
The development of Inland water
ways, and water transportation i In
general, Is of great value fo the agri
cultural sections of the country. An
extensive project in this regard Is now
being executed. The last Congress
bas provided tor a barge line to ex
tend from St. Louis to Missouri River
points, which when in full operation
will bring decided relief In the difficul
ties and cost of transporting farm
products. When the loss of the for
eign market for our products as
imminent because of Insufficiency of
ships In which to transport them, ves
sels of the United States Shipping
Board were reconditioned and placed
In service, thereby saving the market.
Tariff protection against foreign
competition always bas been given to
farm products. The Fordney-McCum-ber
Tariff Act carries higher rates of
duty on agricultural products than
any tariff law in the history of the
nation. It has been found that cer
tain of the duties are not high enough
ta clve adequate, rirQ.te.cUcn to aome
ot the products ot the farm, and 1 be
lieve It Is the duty ot Congress to
provide rates high enough to protect
such products against foreign com-'
petition. In addition, by this act, the
duties have been lowered on most of
the articles the farmers buy or they
have been put upon the tree list
Appropriations have been made
freely to aid the farmers la time ot
crop failures. The Federal Farm Loan
System and the Intermediate credit
banks have made available to farm
ers, on loans at a low rate ot interest,
more than $2,500,000,000.00.
That effective help has been given
to the farmer by the Republican party
since It took charge on March 4, 1921.
Is Indicated by the statement ot the
Washington office ot the American
Farm Bureau Federation. On page
one of Its Annual Report dated April
6, 1923. there appears the following:
"The passing ot the 67th Congress
Into history marks an epoch in the
undertaking of the American Farm
Bureau's nations! legislative cam
paign, (t Is not too much to say that
the twenty-six laws passed by that
Congress, which were Initiated and
supported by us, are of far more Im
portance to American agriculture than
all the legislation relating to Agri
culture passed since the adoption of
our Constitution."
Tfcougli much bas been 4one to ame
liorate the farmers' situation, still
more remains to be done, for there
' exists today a depression In Agricul
: ture which In the best Interests ot all
i ot the people, must be relieved.
Women In Government
Since the beginning ot civilization,
the right to vote, which Is the right
to have a decisive voice in the affairs
of government, has been coveted and
fought for. When obtained. It bas
been cherished by Its possessors;
hedged around with restrictions and
qualifications; and extended to others
only with reluctance. During the
early period of our own government
It was not every free man who was
entitled to vote. Our present policy
ot universal suffrage is the growth of
the years, and the recognition of
woman's rights was particularly slow.
My personal stand on the question
was at all times firmly and openly in
favor of permitting women to vote.
It Is known aud recognized that my
active aid and support were Instru
mental to no small degree In procur
ing the action ot the Senate on June
4, 1919, by which the 19th Amendment
to the Constitution was proposed to
the legislatures of the several states,
and woman's rlgbt to the ballot be
came effective August 26, 1920.
The mere right to vote, not exer
clsed. Is useless. As a matter of duty,
women as well as men should exercise
that right. There are In the United
States today between twenty-six and
twenty-seven million women over the
age of twenty-one, entitled to vote.
As the years pass, these women are
becoming Increasingly alive to their
opportunity to take a large and Impor
tnnt part In the management and con
