Agriculture "The proper role of government, however, is that of partner with the farmer -- never his master.
By every possible means we must develop and promote that partnership -- to the end that agriculture may continue to be a sound, enduring foundation for our economy and that farm living may be a profitable and satisfying experience. But in the West it is a famous place. It is called Abilene, Kansas.
