Committee on Organization
of a Local Cooperative
f Body Appointed.
At a meeting of farmers held at
the Standard Theatre Monday after
noon, there were between forty and
fifty farmers in attendance. ..Wf O;
Read presided at the meeting, and
after explaining its purpose . was to
organize a local cooperative branch
of the. North Pacific Grain Growers,
a subsidiary of the National Grain
Growers to cooperate with the Na
tional Grain Corporation in the mar
keting of grain under regulations of
the federal farm board, he introduc
ed A. R. Shumway, who addressed
Mr. Shumway is one of four di
rectors of the North Pacific Grain
Growers, the other three being Roy
Ritner of Pendleton, John Withy
combe of Arlington, and C. A. Harth
. of The Dalles. ;::;rv;J . ';yvi'
Shumway explained the history of
the farm movement over the past
eight years, and was emphatic, in
stating that on the farmers of each
locality? themselves, depended the
success or failure of plans to cooper
ate in the marketing of grain under
provisions laid down by ; the federal
farm board, saying that "each lo
cality had to organize."
After going into details covering
the relative connection of local organ
izations with the North Pacific, the
National and the federal farm board,
Mr.' Shumway entered into explana
tion of the principal features of the
contract, which are as, follows: ', . ,.
; "The farmer signs a perpetual con
tract, but after delivering one crop
to the association and is dissatisfied
with the results, he may by notice,
, with-hold his grain and market it
himself withdut any additional ex
pense." -V j-: ;
"All grain ia marketed for its mem
bers by the National ' Association,
but each member has three way? to
sell his grain. He may pool his
grain and get the average price paid
throughout the year, sell on the day
he delivers, or on any day after de
livery that he elects. In the two lat
ter cases he receives all his money on
the day of sale.
"The National Association advances
money to the grower through hia
local up to 90 per cent of the market
price, subject to market conditions
throughout the world. . , , .
"The warehousing to remain as it
is now, until changes are asked for
by the locals. If a local at any time
desires to build a warehouse or ele
vator, government money will be
available up to 80 per cent of its
value on 20 years time at 4 per cent
"Each farmer subscribes for stock
in the local, regional and national, at
$30 a share, one share for each thou
sand bushels he raises. He pay3 10
per cent of the par value the first
year and five equal payments for the

he severs his association with the
At the close of this explanation a
number of farmers signified their in
tention of trying to form a local. One
hundred thousand bushels were repre
sented by the signatures, a committee
was appointed and another meeting
to elect officers will be called at a
later date. i
W. O. Read, president of the meet

been fittingly described as one of the
"most exalted human relationships ever
created by law." They become at once
a big brother, a big sister, an advisor,
or a confessor, sworn so to conduct
themselves that clients will be won to
them by their ability and integrity.
Thousands of little children have re
ceived an education and have been
started off right In life through the
trust department's safe keeping and
guidance of the family estate, number
less widows have been protected from
merciless stock swindlers, many thou
sands of business. men hav been re
lieved of troublesome details in the
conduct of their business through the
creation of a living trust and still
others have safeguarded their busi

The favorable reaction of the publie
toward trust department eervice is not
accidental. It may be traced jointly
to the growing intelligence of the
American people in financial affaire
and . to advertising to the world at
large the merits of trust services. Ad
vertising used in a sensible, Judicious
way is necessary, a power that has ac
complished much good for humanity.
Among the detailed services ren
dered by a trust department the one
that seems to be winning favor the
fastest is the life insurance trust. Life
Insurance 1s the quickest known way
of creating an estate. In reality It af
fords the possessor the opportunity of
setting up a positive monetary safe
guard for his family and then paying
for It on the installment plan, . ,
A married man is not fair to bis
family if he fails to carry life insur

"Buy insurance befora you buy tho

would say, "Merry no man ro thoiLt

Putting Up Ice
Huge cakes of ice are being cut
at Meacham Lake in the Blue
Mountains and being stored away
for summer use by the Oregon Trail
Trading company, at its store in
Washington. Secretary Hyde tells
the farmers of the nation that "blind
production" is the bane of agricul
ture.' '' V . :' ':
Hyde said he wanted to emphasize
that in order to obtain a higher level
of prices that prevails now it ap
peared necessary to reduce ' rather
than to increase 1930 production and
that the problem must be met on the
farm. ' - '..'' '
"If we are to make agriculture
profitable we must not only produce
at lowest possible cost but must al
so keep our production reasonably
close to prospective . domestic de
mand," he said. "Blind production
for an unknown demand is now the
bane of agriculture Competitive sell
ing by six million individual farmers
usually gives the purchaser a great
advantage. The challenge of the new
decade is to act collectively to over
come this situation. 1
"Agriculture's leadership has
formulated and secured . the enact
ment of the agricultural marketing
act which established the federal
farm board backed by a half a bil
lion dollars of public money and
clothed with far reaching powers in
applying collective thinking to that
great problem of the new decade
the problem of modern cooperative
merchandising of crops and live
stock, - "
"But all this will-break down unless
each farmer intelligently plans his
production," the secretary continued.
"The individual farmer oea a duty
to himself to make his efforts profit
able and a duty to his fellow farmer
to help make agriculture profitable.
We cannot do this if farmers work
against each other. , We can do it if
we work with each other."
The secretary said that detailed
information on the agricultural out
look will be brought, to every com
munity within the next month at
thousands of farm meetings conduct
ed by the extension service of the department.

The Dairy Situation -
Has a Bright Side
i v , In Centralization
Elimination of unprofitable cows,
increased consumption of dairy pro
ducts, and centralizing the industry
are some of the beneficial develop
ments likely to accrue from the pres
ent disastrous slump in dairy mar
kets, believes P, M, Brandt, for many
years head of the dairy department
at Oregon State college. ,
Professor Brandt has made an
analysis of the situation, foreseen in
part and warned against a year ago,
and has outlined what he beiieves is
I the most profitable procedure-i or the
uairymari in Dusiness on.. a- major
scale. The sideline dairyman who
with high prices was able to keep a
few extra rcvs, not too well man-
aged, to edd s bit to his other in
come will be the one to feel most
the effect of the market crash, he be
lieves, while the real dairyman oper
ating on a business basis can
weather the slump and profit by the
elimination of the marginal pro
"There is no reason to believe that
the dairy cattle market will be af
f ected to the extent that it will be un
wise to raise good calves." said Pro
fessor Brandt. "It 1b reasonable to
expect that the price for grade cat
tie will decrease during' tha next
several months, but this will give
opportunity for reorganization of
the larger , herds operated on a busi
ness basis. ..,-! ,
"The present situation emphasizes
the need of following the dairy pro
gram outlined for this , stato . while
prices were high. This1 calh for herd
improvement associations, irrigated
pastures where necessary to decrease
production costs, pure bred, sirss and
larger herds, continuance of improve
ment in butter quality that has doub
led the high score butter in the last
year, and more education about and
advertising of the food value of
dairy products. j V ; '
"Incidently farmers might set a
good example in increasing their own
use of dairy products in every, form
possible," he concluded.
