Somerset, Ky., Friday, August 15, 1919.
There is a man
in the county by the name of George McKelvie, State
Organizer for the Farmers Union, who is preaching to the
farmers the worse kind of bolshevism. He is causing
a great deal of dissatisfaction among our farmers who
have been living in peace and contentment for many
years. Until this man appeared in the county the
farmers and business men of Somerset were on the very
best of terms. They worked together to mutual
advantage. Now comes this man to our community
trying to cause friction among our people. He tells
the farmer that he is being robbed. At a recent
meeting at Bronston he told the farmers that it was the
farmer boy who shouldered the gun and fought in the
trenches while the city boy was working in the
office. He told them that the County Agent was a
bireling of the rich and the big corporations and that
before long the rich people of the cities would come
along and take part
|In the great European war just closed about fifty Pulaskians, men and women, gave their lives in the various pursuits of that tragic enterprise that humanity might be free; that autocracy might not again menace the race and that the world might be a better place in which to live. Would it not be appropriate to erect a monument to these heroes on the Public Square! We are sure the citizens will respond liberally to a fund for this purpose. Who will take the matter in charge and start the subscription!|
