FARMERS WARNED OF PROPAGANDA May Expect to be Told They Face Failure in Effort to Organize Cooperative Sales Agency GRAIN GROWERS ATTACKED Efforts Made to Discredit Effort Are Cited in Literature Received Here According to word received today by the local farmers' association from the American Farm Bureau Federation, the organized farmer can expect to be told again that he will face certain failure in his efforts to establish a national co-operative sales agency. Hundreds of representatives of the organized grain trade will meet in Chicago October 3, 4 and 5 to attend the annual meeting of the Grain Dealers' National Association, the organization which fathered the Mansfield 000 propaganda committee which started an unsuccessful campaign of propaganda against the U. S. Grain Growers' Inc.

shortly after the pledging of the quarter million dollar "slush" fund at Cincinnati. Congress is now investigating that meeting and the subsequent acts of the Mansfield committee. "Farmers may as well prepare themselves for an avalanche of propaganda," says C. H. Gustafson, president of the U.

S. Grain Growers, Inc. "The organized grain trade will bring its heaviest guns to bear on co-operative marketing during this meeting but an institution that is as well founded as is the U. S. Grain Growers will weather this new attack just as it did the one that was launched shortly after the Cincinnati meeting.

Next week will be the second phase of the battle that is being waged against producers' efforts to build a better marketing svstem." Publications which get practically all their revenue from the organized grain trade for several weeks have been busy, trying to drum up trade for the convention. The Western Grain Journal, typical of this class in its current issue says: "Without doubt, the biggest problem before the association is the co-operative movement fathered by the U. S. Grain Growers. The Grain Dealers' National Association was the author and the booster of the plan to spread propaganda showing the faults and the impracticability of the plan.

Further consideration will be given the grain growers' scheme at the annual meeting and it is of utmost importance that propaganda be continued to discredit the farmers' movement. This sentiment, printed in one of the organized grain trade's most representative publication, indicates what producers may expect before the meeting adjourns.

NO INTEREST IN COMING ELECTION Practically No Activity in Preparation For Vote on City Officers November 3 ONLY 5 WEEKS FOR CAMPAIGN Women of Rushvile Will Vote in ty Election For First Time This Fall Atthough the city election will be held five weeks from next Tuesday, there is practically no evidence of any activity among the candidates.

The calm that is preceding the election is so prevalent that the average voter had all but forgotten about the coming election. The election will be held on Tuesday, November 8, and before that date many preparations must be made. It is expected that both of the political parties will open local headquarters and that the drives for votes will be made vigorously a few days before the election. As a general rule the campaign in this city does not open in earnest until three or four weeks before the election day and frequently little interest is shown in the campaign until a week or ten days before the ballots are cast. Women in Rushville will vote in the coming city election for the first time.

Four years ago suffrage had not been given women and the fight lay with the men. The entrance of women into the political arena in the meantime means that the candidates will be required to conduct their campaigns among apporximately twice as many voters as the aspirants for office did four vears ago. Women are expected to take an active part in the campaign this fall. In the general election the women's organizations played a vital part in the campaign. There will be only two tickets in the field- republican and democratic, which is in contrast to the situation (in many Indiana cities where there are independent candidates seeking office.

Walter Thomas is the democratic candidate for mayor and was nominated without any opposition in the primary. While principal attention is always centered in the mayoralty race, much interest will be shown in the councilmanic elections.

W. (By United Press) Indianapolis, Ind. Oct. 1--Indications that a nation wide strike will be the weapon used by the coal miners in resisting the wage reductions began to take definite form at th United Mine Workers convention today.
