CREED l helieve in the future of farming, with a faith horn not of words hut of deeds- achievemenls won loy the present and past generations of farmers: in the promise of hetter days through loetter ways, even as the hetter things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years. I loelieve that to live and work on a good farm is pleasant as well as challeng- ing: for I know the joys and discomforts of farm life and hold an inlaorn fondness for those associations which, even in hours ol: discouragement, I can not deny. l believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own aloility to work efficiently and think clearly. with such knowledge and skill as l can secure, and in the ability of organized farmers to serve our own and the public interest in marketing the product of our toil. l loelieve we can safeguard those rights against practices and policies that are unfair. I believe in less dependence on loegging and more power in bargaining: in the life aloundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so-for others as well as mysellg in less need for charity and more of it when needed, in heing happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me. I believe that rural America can and will hold true to the best traditions in our national lite and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.
