This is in line with a recent state
ment to the press, made by Chair
man Lcsrge of the Federal ' Farm
Board, when he said :
"Too many scattered Coopera
tives make for hard handling and
disorganizations We want fewer
and more conservative coopera
tives." W. F. Schilling, member of the
Farm BoaH. recently taid at the
time he visited the Northwests -
"Millions for cooperation, but
not one thin dime for warring co
operatives. Not for one minute
will we countenance jealous com
petition between the marketing
groups in the same lines. We
cannot use government money to.'
aid farmers in fighting each
other. 'And you leaders must co
operate among yourselves." . . -f
Carl Williams, Farm Board mem
ber, made this statement at a meet
ing held at Baton Rouge:
"I want to emphasize this, and
I want you to carry .the message
back home, that farmers . should
get in touch with organized 'co
operative movements rather than,
attempt to organize new ones."
"It Is only good, round business
that existing cooperatives should'
be used rather than that new in
experienced ones be organis
ed in a territory adequately serv
ed by experienced, regional wool
cooperatives - such as the Pacific
Cooperative Wool Growers In the f
Northwest." j aya R. A. Ward, ex.,
ecutive director -of the National
Wool Marketing Corporation and
secretary of the Wool Advisory
committee. "Setting up new, un
tried locat cooperatives results in
a duplication of machinery, dupli
cation of effort,- duplication, of;
expense and the creation of harm
ful competition -.between growers '
groups in their efforts to obtain
wool, the expeiue and ill-effects
of which are all borne by the wool
grower. Any new cooperative will
have to learn, by experience what
the older cooperatives have learn
ed in the tame school. Strong,
regional cooperatives will give the
wool growers a majority of con
