TV ere may be the ablest leaders. ory-in :zers arid officers, but the ucic- of the movement pets back to the producers, to what extent thpy will pet behind the orpsniiation ar.. Mick. It is poinp to nqiiuT m.is-charac-tf-r ard mass-iritoni pence behind any erfranixntion to make it powerful enouph to influence markets and pet for producers what is theirs. An or franizat;oft of producers wr.ich has no further interest in trie movement than what each individual pets out of it in debars and cents, doesn't us ually last ionp or pet very far. It neds cooperative reiipion to put them over needs members who read and study; who attend meetings; who will pet out and bustle; who support the organization every week in the year with trade, capital and pood will and who everlastingly urge others to do likewise. When enough of this kind of farmers bunch up, then co-operation will get the same kind of results that business combinations pet, but so long as they play the entirely sel fish game; so long as they fall for tha bait of temporary higher outside prices and desert their union; so long as they let the interests that prey on them break them up and keep them blindly competing with each otner, just so lor?g will co-operation fail. The Northwest Wheat Growers' Association has recently suspended operations in Oregon and Washing ton. The growers would not stand by not enough of them. One hundred per cent benefit cannot be had with 10 per cent support. So ti e organi sation lets go. while the same kind of an organization in Oklahoma eoes ahead. Oklahoma started with three and a quarter million bushels signed up. The second year this was doub led and this year the association will .control ten million bushels. This is co-operative progress. Three Kan sas associations have combined and they will be a big factor in the mar keting of the state's wheat crop. Labor is becoming a very strong co-operative organization in the na tion, because iaborers are thinking together and acting as they think. Tcey are able to a very large extent to set the scale for a days' work and get it. Manufacturers and other big deal er! own and control their own sell ing agencies and handle their goods all the way through to the retailer. They no longer permit middle inter ests to make two dollars off of one that they get. They reap the middle profits themselves. They are organ ized, and they stick, almost to the last man. The last man doesn't last long unless he does stick. In ail industries except farcr.ire the owten cf the commodity bav a hand ir the selling end and the price. W hen the farmer sells a commodity, the buyer names the price. The farmer is not a party 10 the deal. He pro duces and takes what is offered as to the price, and the buyers are strong ly organized- They can to a large txtent regulate both demand and supply. Oregon Bankers Will Aid Farm Development Oregon bankers expect to keep in touch with agricultural conditions in every part of the state in the next year and initiate programs of agri cultural development as a part of the broad plan outlined by the agricultur al committee of the Oregon Bankers associaiton, and adopted at the con ference at O. A. C. under the auspices of the agricultural commission of the American Bankers association. The state has been so divided into nine proups that the work may more ef fectively be carried on. The group arrangement is to enable each member of the agricultural com mittee to have an active part in the work. By the assignment of a defi nite territory he is expected to be able to go ahead with tht program which in his judgment is best adapt ed for his region. Every member will be expected to send the chairman periodic reports of what has trans pired in his county. Three meetings of the agricultural committee of the bankers' associa tion are planned for the year. One of these will be at the time of the Pacific International Livestock expo sition in Portland, possibly in con junction with the agricultural com mission of the Washington Bankers' association. Another will be in southern Oregon early in 1925, and the third, in central or western Ore gon sometime in the Spring. The Gilliam & Bisbee's jZ?

It's worth noting that Zerolene "stands up" in this sort of service as well as in all others. The Business Manager of the "Spokesman-Review," of Spokane, Wash., writes as follows: "For more than ten years we have continued to use Zerolene oils and greases in our sixteen cars and trucks nd three motorcycles. These carry our pa pers every day in the year over all sorts of roads in all kinds of weather, and may be classed as very hard service." Why pay tribute to the superstition that "eastern" oil is "better" just because it costs more?
