Holding Action Report For fiften days many thousands of pounds of milk was kept on the American dairy farms in an effort to get a 2c per quart increase under contract. This was done by members and non-members who al.so realized the importance of the holding action. We talk to many people and businessmen in town who couldn't understand why the farmer wasn't paid just that 2c. Many times their price per quart was raised 1 ¦ 2c and more and nothing much was said about it. This increase was blamed on increased labor and production costs. According to what some people tell us farmers along the line of efficiency they should be able to sell the product for the same as they did 20 years ago because they can do so much more with modern equipment and less labor. The holding action is still on and we still feel this will be won and a raise in milk will be gotten. We're tiot holding our milk home now or walking picket lines. But there are other ways that will be effective. There are information meetings Continued on Page Five Miss Huntley Candidates Pictured above left to right arc Jackie Howard, Faye Marlowe and Julie Enstrom who have been selected by the students at Huntley High School to represent the community in the preliminary judging for Harverd Milk Day Queen this even.ng Thursday.
