exist,” says State Senator

of the State Senate
Agriculture Committee.
Senator Stapleton, from
Indiana, Pa., addressed the
final session of the Penn

Association’s Sweetheart
Legislative Conference,
February 16 at the Penn
Harris Motor Inn. His speech
forcused on, “Why You Need
To Be Organized.”
The Ag Committee
Chairman emphasized to the
150 women at the seminar

across the state to coor
dinate activities influencing
farm legislation. Stapleton
urged the women to set up a
constant flow of ideas with
the elected representatives
from their areas.

cerning agriculture during
its two-year duration each
term,” explained Stapleton.
The imput by farm people
into legislators un
derstanding of the im
pending bills is crucial in
helping decide which
direction to vote.
He reminded the farm
women that Pennsylvania,
with 3.5 million farmers, is
the largest farm state in the
nation. But because of the
high industrial concentration
in the state’s economy,
farmers have become very
much a minority in the
overall - voting numbers.
Because of population
shifts across the state, the
Senator warned of possible
upcoming reapportionment,
which will cut down even
more on the number of rural
area legislators and add
greater representation from
densly - settled urban areas.
