THE PEOPLE'S SAY
Just now the -world is sick. The
doctors who are prescribing remedies
are making their prescriptions range
all the way from the sugar and flour
pill that will cure as far as the imag
ination or faith will cure, to the poi
son that will leave worse effects than
Henry Ward Beecher once said
there was some herb sometimes grow
ing over a man's grave that would
have cured the disease the patient
died from and believed there was a
remedy for every disease. I believe
this will also hold good in the busi
There is a remedy for everything
that is wrong and it is our duty to
Just now there is ' quite an effort
being made to find' the solution of
the farmers' troubles in a business
Most of the solutions offered are of
the sugar and flour pill program.
others contain poison that will surely
leave bad results.
Everybody admits it is proper to
organize the farmers and pull togeth
er. We have had the Grange with us
for fifty years in Oregon. The Grange
pays its state master $3000 per year
to act as a guide to lead the farmers
to the truth and solution of his troub
les. If all the farmers would join the
Grange and pull for what ia right
they would win there as well as
anywhere. If the constitution
of the Grange forbids political action
and political action is necessary the
remedy is change the constitution.
But instead of doing this along
comes another crowd who want from
$5.00 to 18.00 per member to feed
another bunch of leaders who do not
offer any better solution than has
been proposed time after time in the
Grange and yet it may be the solu
tion for some will join one and not
the other and when they all find they
only have the flour and sugar pill
they may combine on the right rem
edy. Apparently the Farm Bureau is the
strongest movement that -has ever
come up so far . It has the advan
tage of all other organizations, be
cause it is receiving aid from the
county to the nation with money. The
Clackamas County Budget for next
year calls for $2300.00 for County
, Agent $1800.00 for club leader.

ciency from the extension work of
the department of agriculture.
I have read some of the Rochdale
Cooperative literature on marketing,
and I wish that all of the farm bu

of the farm bureau, then they could

Mr. Higinbotham is wrong when he
refers to the membership agreement
as a shady one. It has been accept
ed by banks all over the United
States. It does tell how to withdraw,
here is the exact wording.
"This pledge shall become void in
case of my death or removal from the
county, or after 1921 upon written re
quest to the secretary of the Clacka
mas County Farm Bureau prior to the
date payment becomes due." Isn't
that plain enough?
If the banker did not understand
it, it was because he was opposed to
the farm bureau or did not want to
I would be pleased at any time to
talk over the work of the farm bu
reau with people desiring information
in regard to its activities, and 1 Will
advise everyone to attend the farm
bureau meetings, read the papers and
see what the farm bureau is doing.

December 29, 1921.
To the Editor of the Banner-Courier:
It is a fact that all of us who do
anything make mistakes occasionally
but if. we learn from them we have
made our lives better. Now, I not
only read Mr. Higinbotham's" first
article but I also read between the
: lines and I still contend that he in
ferred that we needed the Rochdale
- Marketing plan. He also said that
the Farm Bureau hindered the work
of the county. He is mistaken.
The county farm bureau is organ
ized to aid to the' fullest possible ex
tent the work of the t county agent

fall, the principal rye growing dis
tricts report the acreage less than last
year. Lack of moisture has also re

Winter Crop Report
For Oregon Given
The following crop report on wheat
and rye shows a considerable falling
off this year from last year.
Winter Wheat: Owing to the very
favorable seeding conditions prevail
ing in the western part of the state
this fall and the very unfavorable
conditions of a year ago, the wheat
acreage seeded this fall in the west
ern part of the state is consid
erably larger than that of a year ago.
But this western Oregon increase is
very largely offset by a decreased
acreage seeded in th eastern part of
the state. . On the whole, reports in
dicate that the total winter wheat
acreage seeded in Oregon this fall is
probably somewhat in exces's of the
acreage seeded a year ago. The con
dition of the crop in the western
section is above the average. It got
a fine start, but growth has been
somewhat checked by the heavy pre
cipitation in November, and the low
er than normal temperatures prevail
ing in December. In the eastern part
of the state much of the crop was
seeded late and has " not made much
growth. Considerable re-seeding of
the earlier plantings has already been
done and it is anticipated that more
than the usual amount of spring seed
ing will be required. The percent
age condition of the crop for the
state as a whole is estimated at 92.0
