Union, having dropped their- demaral .for recognition" have helped con- siderably to smooth the way. Farmers hareo, been ready to meet ttiair men, and they are. now redeeming their promises If recognition, had bean insisted u3çm. there is no doubt the struggle would,, have been prolonged for the farmers had. made up their minda., not to deal with thoir men through trade, union, officials, arguing, that they were always in personal contact with their workers and to hpne, to deal with oaiaida oSeials was out ob the. qpaotion.
