hope for a different outcome. On

(By C. E. Spence, Market Agent)
There is one way, and apparently
one present way, for the farmers of
Oregon to make their industry per
manently profitable, and that is by
united effort by operating as the
big industries of our country oper
There is at present apparently only
one way for the consumers of Ore
gon to buy food and other necessi
ties at fair prices and that is through
th esame means strong co-operative
The growers receive but one-third
of the average price paid by consum
ers so states the U. S. department
of agriculture.
Between the grower and the con
sumer are too many middle classes
of markets; too much duplicate dis
tribution; too many middle profits,
none o which add a dime of value
to the products.
If many of the middle expenses
and profits were eliminated and di
vided between the producer and con
sumer, both would be greatly bene-.
The amazing success of California
in controlling farm products from
the hour they are harvested until
they reach the consumer, is awak
ening the farmers of the entire na
tion f the necessity of co-operative
marketing to save themselves. One
half of the total' products of that
great state are controlled by co-operative
organizations, and the business
men of the big cities of the state
work hand in hand with the growers
to make their organizations power
ful. Oregon is far behind California
and Washington In this movement,
and Its eight organizations do not
control enough of the products to
have needed market 'strength.'
The purpose of the new state
market agent law is to help the pro
ducers of Oregon to organize and
control their industry to enable j
them to determine the selling price
of their products and to maintain
prices which will guarantee them
living profits.
State associations naturally f ol
low successful local organizations,
and national associations are the
final step.
The first important work of an
association is strong membership.
Twenty per cent control of a product
cannot maintain prices, but 60 per
cent is a dominant power.
Management is of greatest import
ance. Men at the head of the organ
ization must be fitted for the work,
experts capable of developing effi
cient and economical sales machines
j to market the products at the hlgh
H j '.st possible price. Then with stand-
j ardizajion, established grades and
Jjhiands, such organizations can win
a not so much in controlling the
j market, but through scientific distrl-
i bution maintaining prices by elinii
H natlng flooding.
Oregon producers must come alive
to the absolve necessity of co-operative
organization in marketing if
they would prosper. They must run
their own business it is their only
The business Interests of the clths
of the Btate are realizing that the
first fundamental for success bus
iness life is based on successful
farming. They know they cannot !
prosper when the producers are go-1
ing broke. Their success depends on
the prosperity of the surrounding
country, not on the profits of the
bioker. They are realizing that they
must also co-operate with the farm
ers for their own interests. They
are ready to help. The state market
agent stands ready to help.

The Eastern Oregon Convention
f t the Churches of Christ that was in
session here during the past week
and closed on Sunday evening, was
& cunvention that towered above the
average gathering that is to be ex
pected In a town of this size. The
progiam was of a high order through
out, uid some of the personnel of the
talent was the very best.
The convention opened on Wed
nesuay evening with an address of
welcome by S. E. Notson, represent
ing ihe mayor. The speaker assur
ed the visitors and delegates of their
cordial welcome and proffered to
them the hospitality of the city. The
rtsponse was made by C. F. Swan
dei of Portland, missionary superin
tendent of Oregon, in a very appro
priate speech. W. O. Livingstone,
chairman of the convention, then
followed with the opening address.
From that time until Sunday eve
ning at 10 o'clock the mornings, af
ternoons and evenings were filled
with stirring addresses and confer
ences relative to the work at hand,
summarizing the work of the year
and planning for the future. The
program of the church to reach one
million converts within five years,
launched last year, was shown to be
progressing in a very satisfactory
manner, inasmuch as the church is
now running ahead of its program.
The items of the program which
attracted the most attention were
Dr. Royal J. Dye, of Bolenge, Africa;
Miss Goldle Wells, of Mondonibe,
Africa; Marion Stevenson and Mrs.
Affra Anderson, of St. Louis, Mo.
The other speakers on the program
were from Oregon. Dr. Dye brought
stirring messages of the habits, cus
toms, needs and hopes of the Afri
can continent, showing How Christian
teaching met the needs of those peo
ples, the same as all others. Miss
Wells, a rather frail looking young
woman, in repeated speaking and
many conferences, brought the life of
savages of Africa before the people
of Heppner as perhaps they never
saw it before and showed the
progress that Christian civilization Is
making in that country. Marlon
Stevenson delivered two classics, and
Mrs .Anderson proved herself to be
a real woman orator.
The entiru program was of a high
order and one that Is calculated to be
of real substantial worth to the com
munity. The city of Heppner may
well be proud of the manner in which
they entertained the body of visitors.
In addition to opening up their
homes to tho visitors, the local Com
mercial Club too'k them on an auto
ride over the Eightmile country and
back to Heppner by tho way of lone
on Saturday evening, at which place
they were served the evening meal
by the Christian church.
W. O. Livingstone, of this city,
was re-elected president of the con
vention for the fourth term.
Tho body voted to meet next year
at LaGrande, Oregon.
