FARM MARKET ACT
'Open Door' in Marketing
Commodities Aim for
Last 30 Years.
their own leadership, and standing
unflinchingl for the good of agriculture.
"The Grange stands second to r.o
organization in America, in support
of the Federal Marketing Act, and
of every movement that will make
for orderly marketing and sounder
business methods in the distribu
tion of farm products," declares the
current issue of The National
Grange Monthly under the heading,
"The Open Door." The article con
tinues: History reveals the fact that
a committee was appointed by the
National Master, following the
Pittsburg session of the National
Grange in 1923, to propose a mar
keting bill. Final plans which had
the approval of the then Secretary
of Agriculture Henry C. Wallace,
and Secretary of Commerce Herbert
Hoover were presented to Congress.
During the years, and the delay that
followed, the Grange has consist
ently supported this type of legisla
tion; at the same time, we have
been asking for other steps to bring
economic parity to agriculture.
The final passage of the market
ing act and the appointment of the
Federal Farm board, bring to the
front questions of tremendous im
portance, but no problem connected
with the policies of the board, in
the creation of nation-wide cooper
atives, is of greater importance
than the principle of equal oppor
tunity to every tiller of the soil, to
participate in the advantages which
the Marketing Act can offer. We
might term this policy "The Open
Door" in marketing, which simply
means that any agency using the
machinery of the Federal Farm
board, or borrowing federal money,
must be open on equal terms to
every agricultural producer of a
given -commodity, regardless of re
ligion, politics, or farm organiza
The Grange has no quarrel with
any other farm organization. We
desire to cooperate with all, and we
concede to any organization the
right to build any agency that its
judgment and experience may dic
tate to be wise: but when these
marketing agencies become an in
tegral part of a great nation-wide
farm cooperative, and they accept
federal funds and the advantages
of nation-wide control, they must
of necessity open the door to all
producers of the given commodity,
on equal terms.
The Grange policy on this ques
tion is of almost 60 years standing,
and it is the result of experience in
building cooperative associations in
practically every state in the nation.
We insist that in every case where
volume and control of the product
are concerned, the Grange, or any
other organization, can best serve
its membership by building on the
broad foundation of American agri
culture, rather than upon its own
membership. Experience teaches
that the best way to build the
Grange or any other organization is
to render outstanding service to ag
riculture and the community. When
this is done, the membership ques
tion takes care of itself.
The Grange has supported every
sound commodity cooperative that
has sought to benefit its producing
members, and will continue to do
so. For example the Dairymen's
league had Grange support and
many local units were organized in
Grange halls. The success of the
movement depended upon interest
ing the largest possible number of
dairymen, regardless of whether
they were members of the Grange
or not. What is true in this case,
is true in every other case of mar
keting. Successful cooperatives
must be based on commodity pro
ducers, and has nothing to do with
color, creed or political faith.
It is true that in such matters
as Grange insurance, whether fire
or automobile, where the selective
risk and not volume is the control
ling factor, the Grange does rightly
apply the membership test. Home-
owning American citizens are bet
ter fire insurance risks; consequent
ly there is saving and value in
keeping these agencies confined to
a selected membership. But it does
not make a particle of difference
when a bushel of wheat, a hog, or
a bale of cotton reaches the market
whether it was grown by a Grang
member, a Farm Bureau member
a Farmers' Union supporter;
whether the producer was a Demo
crat, a Republican, a Quaker or
Catholic. The problem involved Is
the quality of the product, the larg
est possible control of its volume
and its intelligent merchandising.
Consequently the Grange offers
no apology for insisting emphatic
ally that in all machinery that is
being set up under the Marketing
Act, the American farmer shall be
considered as a farmer and a pro
ducer, regardlses of any affiliations
he may have. It will be intolerabl
If under the new National Grai
corporation for example, we have
Grange elevators, Farm Bureau ele
vators, Farmers' Union elevators,
Equity Union elevators, and other
groups, all competing for the far
mer's grain. The success of this
great movement is dependent, not
upon how much grain the Union,
the Farm Bureau or the Grange can
deliver, but upon the volume of
grain controlled and the loyalty of
the producer to the national mar
The Grange most whole-heartedly
endorses the efforts of the Federal
Farm board In Its program to bring
the largest amount of benefit, with
the least delay, to all of our farm
producers. In endorsing the atti
tude of the Farm Board, we at the
annie time insist that the future of
agriculture Is dependent upon main

This past week was the anniver

institution of the Boy Scouts of
America back in 1910. Over four
million boys have been scouts in
America since February 8, twenty
Sunday the 9th the Boy Scouts
attended the Episcopal church in a
body to listen to a Scout sermon by
Rev. Stanley Moore. It is a Scout
custom during anniversary week to
attend some church in a body to
hear a sermon. The custom ought
to be continued here in Heppner
year after year.
At the last Scout meeting a com
mittee of boys consisting of Earl
Thomson, Gay Anderson and Curtis
Thomson was appointed to receive
calls for any work that Scouts can
get to do about town. The boys
are anxious to earn money for uni
forms, and some one suggested this
method to help them as they are
supposed to buy their uniforms with

FARM OUTLOOK REPORT OCT,
The increasing interest in the an

made it advisable to print them this
year instead of mimeographing

and to other interested persons
through the offices of the county ag
ricultural agents. In addition to tne

plied with copies of the Federal out
look circular, for distribution to
persons who apply for them.

1918 many living under the laws

Mr. George pointed out the Im
portance of exercising the right of
suffrage. Less than 50 per cent of
the people In the United States ex
ercise their right to vote. However,
the Legion has no part in partisan
politics, nor partisan politics any
place in the Legion.
The organization urges national
defense for preparedness only. Lim
itations on reduction of armaments
should be made only with limits of
safety to this country. Universal
service in war time to all with
special privilege to none Is being
worked for by the national organi
zation. The Legion believes that
man power, money and property all
should share an equal part of the
responsibility of war. Bills have
been put before the last three ses
sions of congress to gain this end
but so far they have been without
success. The Legion plans to work
toward this legislation until its goal
is attained. It is pointed out that
if there were no profits from war
that there would be no wars.
Lasting Benefits Sought
Caesar's military conquests are
little known today, but the roads
that his armies built are still being
used, and he is better remembered
by this constructive work. It is the
aim of the American Legion to be
of such service that the constructive
work that It leaves behind will
make reason for the organization
to be remembered.

post is an added reason for the Le

Legion, but just those who have
