In the whole history of trades unionism, nothing like
this ever before has happened. Here is a top-ranking labor
boss, a man to whom employers have been lifelong anathe-
ma, deliberately setting out to organize the backbone of
American capitalism, the farmers.
He is saying frankly, positively, and even belligerently,
that he doesn’t given tinker's damn about the farm liilmr-
ers. All he wants is the owners, the managers, the entre-
preneurs who up to now have been untouchable in the
trades union program.
Mr. Lewis is not orKaiiizing the farmers to work short-

a greater profit from the production and side of milk,
through higher prices.
H'llK more one thinks about this latest Ix*wis venture, the
more one becomes convinced that there is a very black
Ethiopian in the woodpile.
In dealing with so devious a mind as Mr. Lewis’, it is
not safe to leap at conclusions. It is permissible, however,
to point out a few considerations which the self-proclaimed
protagonist of the nation’s farmers can hardlv have missed.
More than JO million Americans live on farms. A luryre
proportion ot these own from one cow to hundreds, and
sell milk. Perhaps an equal number, in rural villages, de-
pend for their livings upon the farmers’ trade.
There are close lo seven million individual farms. Un-
like industry and commerce, farming is a business which
has more entrepreneurs than hired hands.

|>RING very vulgar, one may jsiint out that in orgranizin#
industry, the prnvy comes from millions of workers
lather than from thousands of owners. But on farms the
reverse is true.

The purpaae behind the amend-

of a board of nine regents, whose
sole concern is higher education,

higher educational policy and a'
uniform system of financial bud-

To accomplish this goal the state

major objectives ns follows:
Development of a consistent state

the amendment adopted In Okla-

from the institutional boards to the
state regents for higher education
and is thus out of the hands of
both the governor and of each
institutional governing board.
Specifically, the coordinating
board amendment which the peo-
ple passed a year ago provides
for a nine-member board, one
member to be appointed each year
for a nine-year term. Tills means
that no governor, except Gover-
nor I,eon Phillips, who was re-
quired to appoint the original
board, can gain control of the
board by appointment of n ma-
jority of the members.
Five specific powers were grant-
ed the board in the amendment.
They were enumerated as follows:
It shall prescribe standards of
higher education applicable to each
It shall determine the functions
and courses of study in each of
the Institutions to conform to the
It shall grant degrees and other
forms of academic recognition for
