County Farm Bureau Op
poses Increase in Par
cel Post Rates.
( Morrow County Farm Bureau News)
According to a letter received by
the officers of the Farm Bureau from
Gray Silver, the Washington repre
sentative of American Farm Bureau
Federation, there is a serious possi
bility that Congress will take action
raising the parcel post rates and
rates of fourth class matter to three
times the present rates. The County
Farm Bureau has written the mem
bers of Congress from Oregon, urg
ing them to oppose this increase on
postage rates. In the letter from
Mr. Silver, he makes the following
called upon to bear any deficit in this
service department of the govern
mentif there is a deficit? The far
mers long have wished for an in
crease in wages. They have learned
to do without the things they need
and wish very much, but they are not
keen to beat an additional burden
through the increase in parcel post
The McNary-Haugen Bill.
(Morrow County Farm Bureau Newa)
The McNary-Haugen bill is before
congress this week ,and will proba
bly come to a vote by Thursday or
Friday. The bill has gathered consid
erable support and is believed by
many of the men in close touch with
conditions in congress to have at
least an even chance of passing. Many
amendments are being offered with a
view to defeating the bill. Telegrams
are being sent by the Morrow County
Export Commission league and the
Morrow County Farm Bureau to some
of the doubtful members of the house
of representatives, urging their sup
port of the bill. Contrary to articles
published by many eastern newspa
pers the farmers of the Middle West
are m favor of the bill. A recent
pool in Illinois showed fifteen hun
dred for it and eight against It, while
a referendum conducted by the Min
nesota Farm Bureau federation was
almost unanimously in favor of the
order of sale. Issued out of the above

NOTICE OF FINAL ACCOUNT.
Notice is hereby given that the un
dersigned administrator of the estate
nf Aarnn Petprson. deceased, has filed
statement: "This proposal to increase with the County Court of Morrow
the postal rates on the things the
farmer buys and sells undoubtedly
has its origin in the determination
on the part of somebody to increase
the salaries of postal employees. It I
is generally admitted, however, that
the postal employes, taking them by
and large, receive as high wages or
salaries as is paid in industry for
similar positions. Of course, there
are inequalities as in any large in
stitution and these undoubtedly will
be adjusted. The point which the
farmers make, however, is: Why
make them carry the entire burden
by increasing the rates on parcel
post and fourth class matter? Cer
tainly it is a most inopportune move
to do this, especially at a time when
a million and a quarter farmers an
nually, for the last three years, have
left their farms because they cannot
make a living. With the purchasing
power of farm products at 74 per
cent of what they were in 1913 and
with the purchasing power of all
other classes about twice as much
