FARMERS FAVOR MARKETING
Idaho 1'roditccra Union I'lun Is
Thought to 1'rovido Cheaper
Distribution Service mid
Moro Ocrtiiln Snlo of
Sovoral community meetings (or
potato growers woro hold during tho
past wook at dltforont points In tho
county under tho auspices of tho
(arm bureau at which tho county
agent explained tho plan (or market
ing tho potato crop cooperatively as
worked out by tho potato marketing
committeo ot tho Canyon county
(arm hurcau-ud approvod at a meet
ing o( potato growers at Cairo on tho
17th. As a rosult a considerable
numbor of tho potato growors havo
affiliated with tho Idaho Producers
Union by signing marketing agree
ments. Potato growers who havo
not alroady tied their crops up nro
almost unnnluiuusly In favor ot tho
plan nnd seo In It an opportunity to
reduco to some oxtont ut least, tho
cost of getting tholr product to tho
trado as well as advantages In con-
vonlonco of handling their crop and
greater certainty ot disposing ot It
in case of a slack markot. z
Owing to tho fact that a largo per
contago ot tho growors, variously es
timated at GO per cent of tho acre
age moro or less havo beau forcod
to sign marketing agreements with
various commission firms to whom
thoy will consign their product at
digging tlmo In order to gat seed
for planting, not having been ablo to
socuro tho necessary credit to fin
ance themselves, tho number of
members In tho association will not
bo largo this yoar. This, however,
will not greatly detract from tho of-
flcloucy ot tho .organization as It Is
not necessary that Individual grow
ors cooporato In preparing tho crop
roady (or loading bucIi as Is re
quired by tho lettuco crop. Any
growor who can arrange to load a
car ut ono tlmo can oxpoct survlco
about oqunl to that obtanod by
growors who rosldo where tlioro aro
sovoral mombers. On less than enr
lot quantities It Is ot ndvantngo
however (or two or moro growors
to cooperato In loading. Under tho
plan of organization, tho growor Is
rosponsiblo for producing, harvest
ing, grading and delivering tho po
tatoes to tho car door. Tho associ
ation Is rosponsiblo (or furnishing
market Information to guldo tho
growors ns to tlmo ot harvest, to
provide placards (or bags and gene
ral supervision over tho affairs ot
tho Union, Tho marketing com
pany or California Vogotablo Union
with which It Is oxpoctod to close n
contract as soon as tho organization
Is complotod, Is responsible (or fur
nshlng nags, ordering cars, receiv
ing potatoes at car door, soliciting
ardors, koeplng Itemized accounts
on ovory lot of potatoes nnd all
othor matters In connection with tho
distribution ot tho potatoes, collect

procoods to tho growors.
Tho following committees woro
olectod by tho growers to havo
