Kansas Senator Tells What
Bloc Has Done and What
It Hopes For.
Contends Its Action Requir
ed to Fend Off Grave
By ARTHUR CAPPER.
Editor's Note. Arthur Capper is well
known in national political circles, fair
ly well known In practical literary cir
cles and in Kansas ia regarded as one
of the "big men" of the nation, while
farmers throughout the United States
look to him as a leader in the attack on
the serious problems that confront
them. In the following story he sheds
a light on the "agricultural bloc" that
may give yon a new understanding of
ita aims. The senator from Kansas
knows his subject and has the courage
of hia convictions.
For many years the United States
government has been content to let ag
riculture take ear of itself. There has
been no national policy of a construc
tive nature. Farmers have gone on pro
ducing under many handicaps that
might easily have been removed. The
result haa been disaster that in the last
two yeara has overtaken farmers, caua
ed billions of dollars in losses by
shrinkage in the value of farm products,
and has been seriously detrimental to
businesa throughout the land. Agricul
ture haa been brought to a point where
ita future ia in peril, where it is bound
to go backward unless real relief is
The need of a constructive national
program looking to the rehabilitation
of agriculture ia regarded by the farm
bloc as imperative. I think that fact is
appreciated by business men as well as
by farmers. It is generally accepted
that prosperity must come first to the
farms before it can prevail in the city.
Farming ia the only business left that
buys at retail and sells at wholesale,
that pays what Is asked when it buys
and accepts what ia offered when it
sells. The farmer remains merely a pro
ducer of the necessaries of human life.
After he haa produced them other or
ganizations take them over at their own
price for distribution. This is true of
no other important industry. The pro
ducer gets but one-third of every dollar
paid by the consumer for the products
of the farm. Our expensive and anti
quated marketing system takes the oth
Small Frama Needed.
The unfavorable conditions under
which agriculture has been struggling
have wrought serious changes in it. The
hazards of the business have driven out
owners and brought in tenants. Tenan
cy ia increasing every year, and this is
menace to the nation, because it
means, In the nnal analysis, tnat son
rapidly is being depleted, and little is
being done on many acres to build up
fertility. The average renter is not a
Farms are growing larger because
land is steadily passing into the hands
of cspitalists and investors. The num
ber of renters has not increased so far
as the number of acrea they lease. While
the proportion of rented farms increas
ed three per cent between 1910 and 1920,
the increase in acrea rented during the
same period has been 20 per cent The
nation needa more small farms tilled by
the owners of the land.
American agriculture has become the
football of the market manipulator and
the market gambler, the legitimate good
thing of the organised buyer and the
organized seller until at last it is break
ing under the strain. Both producer
and consumer are suffering from a mar
keting and distributing system 60 years
behind the times, hte only differenece
being that the producer on the farm is
suffering from it a little more at the
present time than usual because we are
in the throes of readjustment. He parts
with his products long before the con
sumer sees them or needs them. A host
of toil and profit takers meanwhile busy
themselves with these products, trans
ferring them from hand to hand and
absorbing as much profit as they with
their skill at that sort of thing are able
to extract from the marketing business,
We have just recently learned that
for the first time in history we have
more people working in factories than
on our farms, although our population
is increasing at the rate of one million
a year. A study of the census returns
shows that agriculture has been the
only interest to decline. In the last de
cade employment in maufacturing in
creased 20 per cent, The professions all
show a healthy growth. Hut we are not
keeping the boys and girls on the farm
and we are not going to until the condi
tions of the agricultural industry makes
it worth while for them to stay here.
The enactment of constructive, whole
some, progressive legislation, which will
bring about better conditions agricul
turally and promotion of a program in
which agriculture occupies a leading
though not necessnrily an exclusive po
sition, is the mission of the so-called
fiirm bloc in Congress. As a member of
that body, I think I may say with per
fect candor that there is nothing dark,
sinister, nor forbidding in its makeup
or ita purposes. It is not a political ad
venturer, its mission is economic rather
than political, It 1b for things rather
than against them, for the city man as
well as the country man. The reason
for tho bloc's existence is a desire to
sorve the people and the nation in a
time of need. It Is working for honest
industry, ,honest finance, honest com
merce, honest agriculture, honest labor,
and wishes to co-operate with all of
these, for they are the cornerstone on
which we shall erect a truly prosperous

re not so fatuous as to
remedy for the distress-
the agricultural dis
tricts today lies wholly in legislation or
in governmental activity, but they do be
lieve that the government, acting
through the president and the congress,
may do much to hasten the return of
healthy conditions to agriculture. Pres
ident Harding shares their belief, as is
witnessed by the fact that he has signed
every measure enacted by congress at
the instance of the farm bloc. The pres
ident publicly haa indorsed other mea
sures favored by the bloc which have
not yet been pressed by congress.
The farm bloc believes that the best
way to mend the present situation and
provide for the future ia to increase the
producer's profit by shortening the road
to market. One way to accomplish this
is through co-operative marketing,
which eliminates the unessential and
speculative middlemen and which gives
the producer and the consumer their
This we have great hope we shall ac
complish through the recently enacted
Capper-Volstead co-operative marketing
law which gives farmers for the first
time an unclouded right to organize for
the sale and distribution of their own
Things To Do.
The bloc has still many important
things to accomplish. One of them ia
a credit plan which will be of speedy
and immense value to the farming in
dustry. The bloc is endeavoring to have
enacted into law a system of 1, 2 and
3 year credit for farmers based on their
products as collateral. Farmers every
where write me that tho system is just
what nine-tenths of the farmers in their
home territory need.
The farmer and the atockman are
sorely in want of an operating credit
which cannot be supplied by the 80 or 90
days' commercial loan. This precisely
meets the storekeeper's credit needs, but
it takes three years to produce a steer
and make him ready for slaughter and
it takes three years to breed a dairy
animal and get it producing. Sheep and
swine also require much more than six
months, and the farmers' crop turnover
usually takes a year.
Largely because of the lack of such
a means of financing its stockmen, this
country is shortly to be visited with
beef shortage which will cost it dear.
When that time comes, my friends, beef
steak is going to be beefsteak with
It should be a matter of Interest In
the cities for them to learn that the
farm bloc is giving its support to the
Capper-French Truth-in-Fabric bill. The
Truth-in-Fabric bill applies the prin
ciples of the pure food act to cloth
ing. It requires that fabrics shall be
sold for just what they are. If wool is
mixed with cotton the amount of mix
ture must be stated.

wards for the election of officers and se
lection of the 1923 meeting place.
McMinnville is making s strong bid

honor of the men and women of the
county who served in the war.
State Schools Increase
Outsiders' Tuition Fee
Yearly Rate to be $105 Next School Year
at Oregon Agricultural College
and University of Oregon.
Non-resident fees for students in the
college and university were increased
from $60 to $105 a year, effective with
the opening of the next fall term, by
action of a joint committee of regents
of both institutions in Albany.
The two Oregon institutions by this
action, taken as a means of reducing
the burden of state taxation, puts the
two Oregon institutions on a par with
the state universities of Washington
and California in respect to non-resident
tuition. In each of the neighbor
ing states the differentia between the
charges paid by the residents and those
paid by students from outside the state
is equal to the $105 to be charged in Or
egon. Graduate students in both institutions
will be exempt under the new fee. The
committee of regents emphasises that
the increased fee is not retroactive; any
non-resident who has entered the uni
versity or college under the present fee
of $60 a year will be permitted to fin
ish his course at that rate. To put the
fees where they would be prohibitive
and at the Bame time would be on an
even basis with other states, so that
the flow of non-resident students would
neither be entirely cut off nor become
a flood which would tax the institutions'
facilities, was the aim of the committee.
Members of the joint committee con'
sldering fees were J, K, Weatharford
of Albany, chairman. Waiter M. Pierce
of La Grande, and President W. J. Kerr
from the college and Judge J. W. Hamil
ton of Roseburg, chairman. C. E. Wood

waa diptherio. On account of the nature
of the disease open air services were
