III COMMON GOOD
BY FARM BUREAU
By R. C. Stewart
i Th farm ".. bureau movement la
really the latest development In co
operation. It is cooperation wherein
producers of ail kinds of farm com
modities have their share in the
working of a common good.
While the farm bureau is " distinctly
sc-parats from any of tne commodity
marketing; cooperative associations, ft is
he center from which practically all of
the new associations will he formed.
That farmers are ready for cooperation
and mutual assistance, Is shown by the
readiness with which they srs Joining-
the farm Bureau Federation- In ret
tins; together through cooperative asso
ciations and locals of the new farmers'
organizations people of a community are
learning to mix with their neighbors,
getting new Ideas, and. in fact, are
greatly broadening themselves.
3 EW IDEAS DIFFUSED
It-ls'only through the Interchange of
Ideas, made possible through these new
farmers organisations, tifat all - of the
producers of the country- will be able to
get together and give their mutual as
sistance and ideas for the solving of
the producers problems. The man who
Stays at home', never getting- out of his
backyard, so -to speak, and has nothing
to do with his neighbors,- is always go
ing backwards upon the path of prog
ress. He has no opportunity to secure
or study any new ideas, but must de
pend upon thowe which be can evolve,
and there are few men who give birth
to really new Ideas.;-:
- It U necessary then, for the broad
ening of any person's vision, : that they
not only mix in a social way with their
neighbors and fellow countrymen. ' but
that they get together and ; work . out
their ideas together, each lending what
assistance he may. Often 'times a man
will have an idea, which has. been dor
mant in the back of his head for a long
time, the value of which has not as yet
im pressed itself upon him. It may be
that by talking with a group of men
who are Interested in his particular line
of work, the real value of his idea will
be shown up - and . new idea will be
developed whiCh.will be of assistance to
a. large number of people. This broad
ening and mutual helpfulness is but one
of the dominating features of the. farm
bureau. . , '
STUDT COURSES FLA3T5ED I
The farm bureau is looking to the fu
ture as well as to the present. A great
many people are now beginning to real
ize1 that one of the chief difficulties
which will be met in the cooperative
marketing of farm crops, will be the
lack of trained men to care for the mar
keting machinery efficiently. The presi
dent of the American farm bureau has
written' to the1 presidents of the various
State universities and agricultural insti
tutions suggesting that these institu
tions render a great u and appreciated
service:1 to agriculture by , establishing
courses In cooperative marketing. It
is hoped that both long and short
courses will be provided .on this subject
to furnish men trained in the mechanics
of cooperative marketing.
As the farm bureau progresses, many
new problems- will have to be solved.
There are problems which can be solved
only through the efforts of the indi
vidual members, who must devote con
siderable study to the matter in hand.
' The farm bureau provides the ma
chinery through which any question t
moment can be immediately referred to
all of the members for their opinion and
the expression of their ideas.
' The term cooperation need not be lim
ited to a marketing association. It has
a broader sense, "self service of all.' for
the benent of an others." , . .

Dallas, Or., March 26. "The coop
erative marketing law is the greatest
legislative victory that the farmers
of Oregon have won ta 60 years,"
said J. D. Mickle, former state dairy
and food commissioner and now with
the ? Dairy league, in addressing a
convention of the Farmers Union organ
izations of Linn, Marion and Polk coun
ties, held near. Jefferson. March 12.:
"It looked as if we were whipped,"
continued Mickle, until the very close
of the session, but fortunately, the farm
ers of this state were able through their
several organisations to make their
wants known at the critical time. ; .
" "The' strongest fight of the session
centered on the cooperative marketing

merely defining the public policy of -Ore-

with the long term contract among the
membership, it was the declaration of
those whose interests are not too identi
cal with producers, that the bill carried
grave dangers for Oregon farmers.

to- pass upon any dangers of the bill and
notified every house member of their
wish for passage with the result that

BAKER VOTES NOT
TO EMPLOY AGEIIT
Baker,' March tt. While Baker
dees not have a county agricultural
agent, through the ' good t offices of
the TrirState Terminal company and
the- Farmers' union - much of the
service of an agent will be -performed,
for .the farmers vfof the
county. .," . ,
An' important step In this direction at
this time is the preparing of poison for
squirrels and other pests which will be
furnished through the Trl-State at actual
COSt. - . c (
Manager Carl Hoge has been prepar
ing the poison and is now ready to sup
ply farmers. The poison is mixed from
the formula. , - 1 -
TV. E. Wilmer, the newly elected presi
dent of the Farmers' union, is a live
wire with considerable experience in farm
agent work, and through the union will
dp all he can to assist farmers in this
work. --- -i..:
The Trl-State company has volunteered
to act as a clearing- .house for the farm
ers , in the work, which has been under
taken at the instigation of the Farmers'
union. It is felt that the move at this
time may later lead to the appointing of
a county agent In Baker county. As it
grows the need of the agent may become
more urgent. It is hoped with the pres
ent plan to get much of the same result
for farmers - as with a county agent,
and this without the added expense to
taxpayers of $3000 to $4000. i '
TOTE AGAI3C ST AGEST . '
Baker county has two of the leading
farmers -unions in Oregon. The Baker
local has 211 members and is the largest
local in the state. - The Rock Creek local
has about 100 members, being classed-as
the third, in size. .. ' ; .
At a recent meeting of farmers at
which there were 20 J3 resent a vote was
taken on the question of a county agent
for Baker county, and there were only
three favorable votes. ' It was from this
meeting that the idea of the Union and
and Trl-State company taking up the
work was developed.
Superphosphate and '
Lime : Are 5 Declared
. Best as Fertilizers
Montesano, March -2S. Fertiliser tests
conducted last year by the Grays Har
bor county farm bureau have demon
strated that superphosphate and lime are
the most successful fertilizer ; here for
oats, clover and . rye grass, r Flowers
of sulphur also proved a valuable aid
to these crops. . , , :y.
Two new demonstration plots have
been laid out this spring under the
supervision of Robert Cowan, county
agent. They are on the McAlister farm
at Wishkah and the James . Caratairs
farm at Satsop. Each plot is two by
eight rods and contains six subdivisions,
fertilized as follows : No, 1, superphos
phate, 300 pounds to the acre; No, 2
potash-," 150 pounds to the acre:. No. S,
unfertilised; No. 4, superphosphate. 300
pounds to the acre, and manure 10 tons
to the acre; No., 6, unfertilized; No. ,
flowers of sulphur, 100 pounds to the
acre. In addition, half of the entire
plot is fertlized with lime at the rate of
3000 pounds to the acre. The two plots
will be sown this week, i Eventually It
is planned to have plots in all parts of
the county to determine what is best
for every variation of soil condition.
Baker Plans Active (
. Baker, ! March 26. Plans were dis
cussed for an active campaign for secur
ing government aid for reclaiming arid
lands in Baker county at a meeting of
the irrigation committee of the Chamber
of Commerce Monday afternoon. Promo
tion work will have to be done, and rep
resentatives sent to Washington to get
the projects before the proper authori
ties. The committee will hold a meeting
later, when definite action will be taken.

AT OUR OLD LOCATION
44 FRorrr street,
Ten years ago, growers In the apple
sections of Oregon were worried as to
what should be done with the crop of
apples, estimated at that time at from
8000 to 10,000 cars 'annually. liuring
the past four or five years, the apple
tonnage of - the - Northwest lias ranged
between 20,000 and 35.000 cars annually,
according to C, I. Levis, organ lsaUon
manager of the" Oregon Growers' .Co
operative association Lewis states that
although the Northwest rather fell be
low its average crop of apples last year,
1 there is a feeling among apple growers
that this season a large crop will be
harvested. , -
Pears grown in the Medford district
last season topped the market In the
three great fruit centers of the world.
London, New York and Chicago. Now
the- fruit section between Medford and
Ashland is coming to the front as an
apple growing country, especially - for
the Golden - Delicious. At the, annual
exhibit, of the Mississippi Valley 'Apple
Lg rowers' association, held at Louisiana,
Mo., A, Johnson of Ashland was awarded
all, prises offered on Golden Delicious.
Boston, New York and Chicago have
become familiar with. thd high grade of
broccoli grown In Oregon through ship
ments made by the Oregon. Growers
Cooperative association. : Chicago has
been a - steady buyer of the Roseburg
broccoli. The-price received by the as
sociation this season has been from 23
to 50 cents a , crate over the average,
these prices ranging from 11.25 to S1.7 J
a crate, with a general average of SI. 40
a crate. There is at present a growing
interest in the broccoli industry in the
Immediate section of Salem. One grower,
who claims to have - an especially . fine
grade grown from the Vafentlne seed,
claims to have sold ; from a patch of
