Transcription"What would you think of a farmer who, when it was time to harvest his apple crop, sat under the tree with his hat in his lap, waiting for the fruit to drop? What would you think of a farmer if he refused to use a ladder which was at hand to help him gather the crop? This is what farmers are doing in many of our states. They're sitting still, waiting for prosperity to drop in their laps, when they might use the ladder of organization and gather the fruits of their own labor. While the unorganized farmer sits and waits, the profiteer steals up behind and takes the cream of the crop for himself. The Nonpartisan League ladder is made for the farmer, to help him gather the products of his own toil. Don't you think a farmer must be very foolish if he can use it and doesn't?"--Accompanying text.
