Wallace calls GOP foe of agriculture

Mason City, Iowa (UP) –
Vice President Henry A. Wallace, son of a former Republican Secretary of Agriculture, continued a tour of the Midwest today after having declared that the Republican Party “down through the years has opposed equality for agriculture.”

Mr. Wallace said:

The Democratic Party has given agriculture what collective bargaining is to labor and corporations are to capital, and the Republicans want to take it away from you.

The ignorance of the Ohio Governor and the New York Governor concerning corn belt agriculture is colossal.
