County Meeting to Be Held Here
Saturday, Feb. 7, To Or-
’ ganize One
County Agent Farr is plan­
ning to have a big meeting o f
farm ers and farm ers’ wives here
in Coquille on Saturday o f next
week, Feb. 7, to organize a Coos
County Farm Bureau. He has
invited 150 individual fanners
and farm women in fifty com­
munities in the county and also
the members o f 26 farm ers’ or­
ganizations to attend this meet­
ing. In his letter he says:
"In order to closer affiliate the
work o f the Extension Depart­
ment o f the Agricultural College
with the already existing farm ­
ers’ organizations in this county
and federate the organized forc­
es into a system atic working
force for carrying on certain
lines o f work that may seem
most important to each commun­
ity so participating in such an
organization, and for Coos Coun­
ty as a whole, it has seemed wise
to call together a group o f repre­
sentatives from all organizations
now existing in the countyi
Breeders’ Clubs, Dairy Associa­
tions, Women’s Clubs, etc., be­
farm ers and women from the un­
organized districts.
‘This meeaing will be held
Saturday, February 7th, at Co-
{jtfiUe, commencing at 10 o’clock
and probably lasting all day.”
This movement for a unifica­
tion o f the farm organizations o f
the county and a closer co-opera­
tion o f the people engaged in ag­
ricultural pursuits is one that is
eminently desirable. The rural
