Like many other farm products,

frames a situation whereby the mid

If there was a thoroughly organized
and tipht cooperative shipping asso

place of these fruit dealers and spec
ula'ors and Tr-ske the promts that ar
now made off of them. They could
have arranged for markets long be
fore the crop was picked; could have
distributed them to the various parts
of the country where most demanded,
in orderly distribution; prevented
the excessive supply in home mar
kets and received fair profit prices.

the farm situation generally. The
farmers produce that others may
make profits from their products. On
an average two dollars are added to
every dollar ihe farmer pets when the
products are finally retailed. There
is ampie room in this price spread
for living profits to growers and low

classes organized, this change can be
Grain dealers arooffering one dol

eastern Oregon, but farmers are not
signing contracts to ar.y great extent
at this price, they believing that the
market price will be higher than this
figure. With the Northwest Wheat
Growers' assocition suspending oper
ations, farmers are hunting their own
markets this season. The association
controlled too small a part of the
wheat to be a dominant marketing
factor and now it will let the growers
find their ow-n markets for a season,
or until such time as enough will co
operate to make the association a real
price-determ ining organization.
An international co-operative in
stitute is under way by all of the
farm organizations and co-operative
organizations, and the plans are to
hold it about a year hence. A call
has been issued by the permanent
committee for a general meeting to
be held in Cleveland, August 11-16,
this year, for the preliminary work
of canvassing the entire cooperative
field, its successes and problems, and
working out a comprehensive pro
gram. More and more farm leaders
realize that they must be their own
saviors; that they must organize and
conduct their business as the other
big industries of the nation do if ag
riculture is to survive.
Last year the U. S. imported $429,

Canada has a population of 9,000,

At an average of $12 a day, wages and
expenses for each salesman, it costs
the country $1,000,000 per day to sell
its goods. ThiB proportion is said
to be far larger in this country. This
is one of the big overhead expenses
that is passed onto the consumer and
