The following Is by F. L. Pinet, Secretary Kansas State Teachers' And all kinds of tun-itud logical that the Union would bo the one that would the fanner out of the wools. The Bureau nl that time was just gettln; a start and was rather an unknown quantity. My opinion has been formed entirely by observing closely the working of both organizations and studying their literature.

I believe, and no doubt have plenty of company in thh belief, that the farmer should cxerclae some control over tha price of his products, the. same as other business man. I think tbla Is fundamental and to this end the great farmer organizations are or should be working. The Union, with iU great organi High Glass Groceries 1 Come in and inspect the new arrivals zation already on tha ground, was "Rural High School Salaries" This Is no time to even talk about reducing salaries of teachers and principals In the rural high schools of Kansas. The rural high school movement in Kansas is still young, and, In a sense, is still on trial.

That this movenieut, thus far, has been a tremendous success no one who Is conversant! with Kansas school af W. A. SMILEY. MERIDEN Now let us summarize: We have the meeting at Chicago which call 1 for the committee of 17; the membership of this committee; the meet-lug which ratified the action of this committee; the 'mooting called by Sec. Mohlor at Topeka; tha meeting called by Sec.

Wallace at Washington; Farm Bureau meetings, State and county, all controlled bv bankers and millionaires, delegates hand-picked, proceedings cut and dried, cards stacked against the enly bonaflde farmer organization; not a dirt farmer within shouting distance; also the well-meaning but sadly mistaken notions of the Farm Bloc about legislative relief. The only beacon light in this great dark cloud of antagonistic forces sweeping, down on the real farmer, the Union meetings at Topeka and Salina and the vaporing3 of McAuliffe, Tromble and Yes, Mr. Mangold, I believe wo have you located correctly. If you desire to render a real service to the Union and the farmer movement in general, why not assist in hushing the anvil chorus as rendered by the Union 'band at Salina? It is not only sadly out of time but also is not considered good music by thinking people. Trusting that I have not Imposed upon your good nature, Mr.

Editor, by sending In this correspondence, I am respectfully yours, B. F. Abmeyer, Grantville, Kansas. KANSAS 'the one that should have taken the 'lead, and It is the greatest disappointment to myself end a good many of the members that It has so far refused to take that lead. Instead, it has seen fit to spend time and energy fighting other farm oragniza-tiona that Pie really trying to accomplish Bomething.

The position of the Union appears to be that, "the advancement of farm conditions should not be brought about unless we do It and we absolutely refuse to do it." I find on the other hand that the pnntiniiallv nrlvanrps a fnn. fairs, doubts. But a reduction of salaries in the rural high schools of Kansas, at this time, would be fatal to the entire movement. For the 1 rural high school occupies a field In -x- iw Kansas education, distinctive in itself; and this being true, must de velop its own unique and specialized leadership and teaching force.

Your correspondent, Mr. Mangold, lias a good deal to say about the county agent. If Mr.

Mangold reads his' Union paper, and it is evident from Ms line of reasoning that he it Is worth while to give the youth from the farm an equal chance witn the youth from the city, then it is sheer folly and nothing else to talk of salary reductions in the rural high schools of Kansas.

The court is an institution that the people of Kansas have been for overwhelmingly.

Its abolishment would not better conditions either for labor or capital and its cost is negligible while its results mean much to the state.

15: What Is Being Done for the Soldiers Not long since when this does, he has surely noticed an editorial In which Mr. Lansdon denies that the Union is opposed to the county agent and the college extension department. In fact, he claims that the Union is responsible for the. employment of the county agent in several counties, No Mr. Mangold, are we to infer that the county agent is all right when the Union is behind him but becomes very objec-jectlonable at once when backed by the Farm Bureau? This would be in.

line with a statement made by an 'ex-Union official, that the S. Grain Growers Inc. marketing plan would not be objectionable provided it was not backed by the Farm Bureau! This reminds me of a little song that circulate back in the nineties. One stanza runs like this: -I don't want to play your yard. .1 don't like you anymore; You'll be sorry when you see nj Sliding down my cellar door." Wonderful logic for full-grown men -what?
