ly marketing program, by means of
co-operative endeavor on the part of
Advocates of co-operative market
ing havo gained powerful allies In
enlistment of the Portland business
men and tho Portland papers, not
ably tho Orogonlan which In a re
cent issuo in an editorial under the
caption, "A Guide to State Develop
ment" had tho following to say:
"In planning for the development
of Oregon, a consummation de
voutly to bo desired, those who as
sumo charge of the project may
wel cast about for examples of suc
cess. Experiment Is to be shunned
when oxperlenco Is ready to teach.
We have, for example, the conspic
uous attainments of tho co-oper-atlvo
marketing plan In California.
It Is both Idlo and narrow to at
tribute tho growth of tho southern
slstor to tourist trado alone. Im
portant as that factor has heon In
Its upbuilding, important as it is
and will ho In tho making of Oregon,
there Is a basis of fundamental pros
perity that rests on solid Industrial
enterprise. In California, beyond
all question, such a basis has been
afforded by scientific marketing of
tho products of tho soil.
"Co-operatlvo marketing In Cali
fornia represents, it Is estimated,
fully 50 por cent of tho output of
agricultural and horticultural In
dustry, and an annual export of
$250,000,000 to $300,000,000. In tho
light of these figures It is clearly
seen that tho tourist, with his va
catlonal expenditures, Is not neces
sarily the source of tho state's pros
perity. And an Infallible guide to
tho futuro of Oregon may bo found
In the contrast of theso truly mag
nificent figures with tho co-operatlvo
roturns of our own state,
which aro said to total hut $7,000,
000. Plainly horo Is a field, than
which thoro Is none more fertile, for
tho lasting dovelpmont of tho state
In tho program of tho now project It
should havo prominence.
"Co-oporatlvo marketing, as prac
ticed In California, not only dis
covers markets and stabilizes prices,
preventing trickery and loss, but It
dovolops markets and finds now
outlots. Whllo Insuring that tho
present season's crop will reach
tho consumer, and at a profit, it
provldos for futuro expansion by
creating now outlots through an
awakened popular demand. Tho
producor Is no longer In tho posi
tion of a suppliant, asking rather
humbly for tho attontlon of buyers,
but Is Instead tho dictator of his
own wolfaro, earning a proper per
centage upon his Industry. So Is
It Is not only concolvnblo, hut
demonstrable, that In any agricul
tural stato thoro Is a vast deal of
wastago caused by Inadequate knowl
edgo of tho world's markets or

tho producor to avail himself of op
portunity. Disorganized and Indi
vidual, tho producers trust blindly
to luck, to tho luck of tho seasons,
tho luck of commerce Tho soasons
aro varlablo, but without malice.
Commorco Is keen and quick to seize
an udvantago. Co-operatlvo mar
keting, on tho other hand, does not
In tho least dopend upon clmnco. It
Is scientifically assured of Itself. If
properly projoctod and fostored It
will do more than any othor dovlco

New York. National defense plans
of the war department contemplate
governmental control of the entire re
sources of the country under "an ef
ficiency council, or board of control,"
General Pershing announced here at
Madison Square Garden before the
Merchants' association of New York.
"According to these plans," General
Pershing said, "the Industrial and
manufacturing Institutions, agricul
ture and transportation would be un
der government control, while per
sonnel pertaining to all of them would
be mustered into the service, as are
those that are called to the colors.
An efficiency council, or board of
control, conforming to our experience
In the war, would then be placed In
charge of all resources with authority
to make such disposition of them as
would best promote the success of the
nation In war."
