A meeting of farm organiza
tions over the state was called to
Waco on the eve of Freeman's
visit Saturday, Purpose of the
meeting, according to Alex Dickie,
Jr., of Denton, president of the
Texas Farmers Union, was to en-
dorse the Kennedy fann program.
Dickie exhorted “all” farm groups
to attend and sign a resolution of
endorsement. Only three organiza-
tions signed the resolution which
was presented to Freeman Satur-
day in Rosebud. Agriculture Com-
missioner John C. White stated
that he had reeeived six other

meeting, said organizations

Cooperatives, Texas Grange. Tex-

Association, Southwestern Peanut
Growers, Grain Sorghum Produc-
ers and Texas Wheat Producers.
"The Texas Farm Bureau, lar-
gest general farm organization in
the state by at least ten times,
was not invited to this meeting,"
West said. "Even if we had been
invited, our policies which are
diametically opposed to the prin-

bill, would not have permitted our
endorsing such a bill to concen-
trate unprecedented power over the
destiny of American agriculture
in the hands of the Secretary of
Agriculture and the Executive
Branch of government”

The typical pattern runs thua:
the salesman fast-talks pour Joyce
Jones into aigning an order for
a net of cooking ware, aliver, or
what-have-you. She pay* a nomi-
nal amount down, the balance to
be over a long term. The price t*
high enough, plua a big carrying
charge, but the installmenta run
for a long time and at flrat look
reaaonahle. When the shipment
arrive*. Joyce decide* ah* doesn't
want It, and can't afford It any-
how. so ah* refuse* to accept it
and tells the company she la can-
celling th* order.
But poor Joyce Is out of luck.
The company promptly tells her
that they “aold” her Installment
contract to bank of financial In-
stitution. and she must now deal
with them not the company. The
company tbua got ita sale price
in full, the salesman hia com-
mission. and the new owner of
i be contract expects hla money In
full. Sorry, but It la too late to
cancel the order. Thla la not at
all like buying from a local
store, where you can uaually re-
turn the goods If they are un-
satisfactory or if you change your
mind. If Joyce ships the mer-
chandise back, the company will
most likely refuse to accept it.
Moreover, the companies buy-
ing such contracts are hard-boiled
about collections. If Joyce doesn't
pay. they will not hesitate to
report her to a credit rating
agency, or even sue.
The moral is. be sure you know
who you are dealing with, and be
sure you know what you are
signing and the ronaequencea.
