i COOLIDGE FAVORS
Farmers Told Self Help is First Re- ,
quirement of Success
Washington, D. C An address by j
President Coolidge indorsing the co- 1
operative marketing system, marked
the opening here Monday of the third 1
annual convention of the national
council of the Farmers' Co-operative J
Addresses by Frank O. Lowden, ex
governor of Illinois, Carl Williams of .
Oklahoma City, Okla. and A. J. Mc
Phail, president of the Canadian
Wheat Producers, Limited, were other 1
features of the meeting.
Mr. Coolidge, in his address, describ
ed co-operative marketing as the best
means of stablizing the country's agri- j
cultural organization, but warned that
the system possesses no magical attri
butes and must start from the soil and
be developed upward with the farm
ers contributing the major aid.
"There is a school of co-operators
who seem to believe that the program
aan be started at the top and built
do'.vnwards," President Coolidge said.
"They want the government, or the
banks, or philanthropists, or providence
to lay out a schema big enough to
cover the country, set its machinery
moving, guarantee it all needed capi
tal and then invite the farmers to sit
in the places reserved for chem and
proceed, to garner their profits. Let
me say that I offer no such Aladdin
like project. I want society as a whole
to help; but I want the farmers to
do their share and 1 warn them that
this will be the lion's share'

It is impossible to escape the con
clusion that high taxes make high
prices. So long as the cost of govern
ment is high, the cost of living will
be high. This is usually a source of
misunderstanding and always a
source of discontent. The duty that
government now owes to the people is
to reduce their burdens by paying off
the obligations that came from the
war rather than imposing additional
burdens for the support of now pro
Jects. Having met our war obligation
to pay, let us meet our peace obliga
tion to save. Coolidge.
