THE VITAL PROBLEM OF
By Peter Radford.
'There U-no escaping the -market
-problem and the highest development
of agriculture - will not be attained
until it is solved, for a market
is as . necessary for 1 the producer
.as land on which to grow his crop.
Governmental and educational Insti
tutions have spent $180,060,000 in the
United States, during the past ten
r years for .-improving soil production
;and improving seeds .sad plants, .but
very little attention and less money
has been given to the marketing side
The problem is a monumental one
.and one which - will never be solved
until it gets within the grasp, of m
,gigantio .organization .where master
.minds can concentrate the combined
experience and .wisdom. of the . age
upon it. It -is .a problem which the
farmers, merchants, bankers, editors
and statesmen .must unite in solving.
The Farmers' Union stands for all
there is in farming from the most
scientific, methods of seed selection to
sthe most systematic and profitable
plans of marketing, but does not be
lieve in promoting one to the neglect
of the other. -We consider the work
.of., farm demonstrators valuable and
y:a ask that governmental and com
mercial agencies seeking to help u?,
, continue to give, us their assistance
and advice, but we believe that their
influence should be extended to the
marketing side .of our farm problems
We cannot 'hope to develop manu
facturing by .over-production of tb
factory; we cannot build up mercan
tile enterprises by the merchants load
ing their shelves with surplus goods
.and no more can we develop agricul
ture by glutting the market with a
surplus, of products. ,
The neigh of a horse made Darius
King of Fersia, the six contending
i powers for the throne agreeing among
.themselves that the one whose hors.t
.Should neigh first should possess the
kingdom. This ancient method of
.settling .disputes among politicians
.could be revived with profit today.
If our partisan factions and petty pol--iticiaas
could only settle their dis
putes by th? neigh of a horse, the
.hark of a dog or the bray of a donkey,
it would be a great blessing and would
give our citizens a better opportunity
ito pursue the vocations of industry
free from political strife.
Let those who pick political piums
:by raising rows and who flash swords
dripping in the blood of industry un
derstand that they cannot turn the
public forum into a political arena and
by a clash of personal aspirations
still the hammer and stop the plow
and that their Quarrels must be settled
.in the back alleys of civilization. .
