"In his address at Portland the other day Eugene Meyer
jr., managing director of the war finance corporation,
brought out a thought regarding orderly marketing of
wheat that lias perhaps been generally overlooked. Mr.
Meyer has recently returned from a trip to Europe where
be spent some time looking into lmancial and trade condi
lions and he learned that because of the present financia
situation over there England and the continent are no
longer able to buy a year's supply of wheat within th
three-month period during and following the American
barvest but are compelled to buy from month to month
according to their needs. England, Mr. Meyer tells us.
.was able a year ago to buy only 15 per cent of the wheat
they would need during the year and continental countries
could not do even that well. I he effect of that condition,
the speaker declared can only be a glut and depression of
ju'ices for' the export, surplus in this country if we continue
to dump our crop immediately after harvest, and he urged
the development of co-operative, orderly marketing as the
only means of stabilizing prices and insuring to the Amer
ican wheat farmer cost of production and a decent profit
on his crop.
It thus appears that the idea of orderly marketing, which
"was the foundation of the co-operative marketing plan,
suits present world conditions even bettor than its origina
Mr. Meyer concludes, therefore, that the only solution is
Jor the United States to devise some system whereby this
surplus can be held at home, until the foreign demand ap
pears and in orderly, co-operative marketing lies that so
lution. Dealers and exporters have held off from buying freely
this year because they have feared the dumping of large
iiiantities and a consequent break in the market leaving
the wheat on their bands.
Ura.il has adopted some such plan to control their coffee
market. With an enormous surplus of coffee in that
country the world, a few months ago expected cheap coffee
but the l'ra.iliaiis devised an orderly marketing plan for
their commodity by which the surplus, is being held in the
interior and fed out to the market according to the demand
and the world is still paying the same; price for coffee as

time to get those extra acn , into wheat. It takes time t

'A farm differs from a corporation. One big difference
is that every farm is built up directly about a home. Then
are more than a hundred thousand homes in distress in the
wheat country. 'J o them it is the aftermath of war; ar

THE WRONG ROAD
By ROSE MEREDITH
A ROOSEVELT SPEAKS
In an address before an' audience of farmers at the New
?Vork State hair, Theodore Roosevelt, assistant secretary
of the navy, delivered an address which for force, direct
ness, good sense and honesty was worthy of his illustrious
Mr. Koosevelt pointed out thai the only hope for the
farmer ies in a co operative marketing organization.
I lis presentation of the case for co-operation was so
clear and incontrovertible that we herewith produce it in
the hope (hat some farmers who are still outside the grow
ers associations f the country, may read- the argument
and lie convinced. It follows:
"In my opinion," Mr. Koosevelt said, "the farmer has
not kept step with the times. The day of the small in
dividual has passed. Keonomy and efficiency are vital to
success and ill is axiomatic that either in buying or selling,
if you deal in bujk, you can deal to your advantage.
"There is one way and one way only that the farmer
can meet this condition, lie must combine.
"Co operation is necessary for the salvation of the
fanner, and' the salvation of the farmer is necessary for the
salvation of the general public."
One effect of co-operation in the future may be expected
in improved warehousing, the speaker predicted, with huge
storage plants properly located at strategic points in re
bil ion to materials.
These, he believed, should be1 tAvned by the farmers' co
operatives themselves, for besides being better managed,
the "polities which invariably creep into state owned in
dustries could be kept out."
THE DEPARTMENT'S VIEW
Accounts of the wheat situation coming from farm
sources have been accused of being colored to suit the
ialse" ideas and desires of the grower. It is easy to say
to the fanner, "Reduce your acreage." The Department
t Agriculture sees another angle, and excellently presents
it in these words: (
