FOR BANKERS AND
0. A. C Corvallip, Pec. 301 h.
Oregon bankers end rural elec
tric service men are coming to
college. What is more, both
groups are going to stu !y
agriculture. Both are coining at
ihesametime late in January,
but each will have a separate
short course prepared as a means
of better acquainting youiig men
:t these two professions with the
present deeds and conditions in
the rural field. .
The bankers will concern
themselves most'y wilheconnmic
ispects of Oregon farm enter
prices during tneir two da
course, Jan. 23-24. Sam Baker,
ctiairman or me agriculture
committee of the a'ate banker-
association, and Ancrew Miller,
'ecretary of the association have
o( perat d with College official
n outlining a program which
includes demonstrations, lectures
Hnd innpection trips.
Starting on the same day but
ontinuiiig for a week will be a
school for rural electric men
sponsored jointly by the Oregon
'experiment station and the
.Oregon committee on the relation
jof electricity to agriculture
j The school was arranged by the
means of giving a much
Information as possible on the
present status and tendencies of
those farm enterprises " which
may be influenced by the use of
A change of methods to meet present day conditions. When I
ent :red the retail business, in lone, 30 years ago, my customers came to town by
horseback, farm hacks, or wheat wagons. Those living within a radius of 10 or 12
miles, usually, came in each week, while those living at more distant farms came
Uice per month, and others came but once a month,
Nearly every one brought feed for the horses, a few boxes of eggs,
some chickens, home cured tacon, butter, or potatoes and many farmers kept their
sto.e accounts balanced wi!h farm produce. A store bill amounting to $100. to
$200. was an exception.
To market a wheat crop was quite a task, the wheat was harvested by
a neighborhood crew and sometimes not completed until snow began to fly, then
the job of hauling to town by the aid of two, four, and six horse wagons, bringing
from 20 to 60 sacks in a tr'p requiring two days, and receiving from 20 to 60 cents
Today, these same farmers come in by auto several times per week
and many buy butter, eggs, potatoes, and meat. You have the Combine
Harvester, the Truck, Automobile, and Kadio and some are looking forward to the
time when they will own one of Henry's fliers.
The mail order house, Cash and carry store with the daily mail and
good roads have put the country merchant at a disadvantage and he must meet
the situation by advancing with the times.
You would not think of giv'n up your auto, radio, truck or combine
and should not want a horse and wagon r.e; ?.nt cr town.
In adopting the Red & White System I am doing so for my own
business preservation and to assist you in buying your needs, of your home
merchant, at the lowest possible prices.
The Red and White System is not a new institution. In the East,
where it has been in operation for several year, it is composed of some 50 of the
leading wholesale food merchants, who are linked up with the leaidng retail food
dealer from the East to the Pacific which gives them a gigantic buying organiza
tion.cuttingcut a horde of buyers and credit men, also the numerous traveling sales
men who make their twice a month trips to call on the retailer.
One of the principle Rules of the System is that retail merchants must pay for
their poods on the First and 15th of each month and "Must collect all accounts Every
Month, thereby eliminating all bad accounts and losses which have heretofore been made up
by the customer who pays cash.
It will require some little time to get the rr alter lined out in regular
form, but ' I am sure that you will come to like the new system and find it a money saving
matter with you and one that will be of great benefit t all of us.
Thanking each and every one who have contributed to my success
to the past aud wishing a contin ance of your patronage and good will, I am.
Yours Truly. BERT MASON,
He-iu'ts of students to date of
the economic application of
electric power on the farm will

to presf nt the farmer's point of
view in regard to electricity and
to suygei-t a procedure or
bringing about an increased use
which will result in profit to
