CO-OPERATIVE DIVISION
A MESSAGE
F. H. A. OFFERS NEW HOME
CONSTRUCTION FUNDS.
Outstanding development in the
Oregon Better Housing Program was
the announcement this week that
the First National Bank of Portland,
with resources in excess of $60,000,-
000 and branches in ten Oregon
communities outside of Portland,
will cooperate with the Federal
Housing Administration by making
its funds available to property own­
ers for new home construction un-
der Title II, the Mutual Mortgage
Insurance Plan of the National
Housing Act.
This action is regarded by E. J.
Griffith, State Director of the Fed-
eral Housing Administration, as a
most important contribution to the
nation-wide effort which is being
made to expand the functioning of
Title II, upon which the Adminis­
tration is depending, in large mea­
sure, to put timid private capital
back into circulation and to restore
the building trades and associated
industries to pre-depression stabili­
ty, thereby providing employment
for many of the Nation's Idle work­
ers of whom, It is estimated, more
than a third are without employ­
ment because or the slowing down
of building activities.
It is the hope of director Griffith
that the example set by the First
•National and by other big financial
institutions throughout the country,
notably the Guaranty Trust Compa­
ny of New York and Bank of Amer­
ica, San Francisco, will encourage
other Oregon banks to lend similar
support to the Better Housing Pro­
gram, thus extending to every com­
munity within the State the oppor­
tunity to participate in a great na­
tional movement which has as its
purpose the speeding of recovery
through removal of the "key log”
In the credit jam so that norma!
credit will flow again in amounts
adequate to meet all legitimate
needs.

pressed the impatient spirit. The
nearest these people came to a so
lution was to urge that the govern
ment should pour out money to em
ploy the needy and feed the hungry
It is the same old idea that prevailed
in Rome over a thousand years ago
and solved no problem.
In Rochdale, England, ninet
years ago, the impatient souls sal
the same thing. Like those of tc
day, they wanted somebody else tr
do something to relieve their dis
tress. They said, "Cooperation i

has spread into every corner of the
world. In England alone its capi
tal has grown to <500,000,000 an’
its institutions are the largest in th
land.
The impatient consumers looked
at the great flour mills of the capi-
talista and said. "Co-operation is toe
slow, we must get these mills by
some quick method.”
The quid
method has had ninety years to win
the flour mills for the people, but it
has not yet succeeded. The patient
co-operators, despite the dire predic­
tions of the economic professors ol
Oxford and Cambridge, went on witl
their little investments in their lit­
tle societies.
Now they own the largest flou
mills in the British Empire—not lar
ger than any mills of ninety yean
.ago but larger than any other mill
of today. The Swedish co-operator
accomplished the same result in on'
fourth the time. The ownership of
the best and largest flour mills ir
the country by the Swedish co-oper
ative consumers was. neither cata
clysmlc nor unexpected; it is result
of planned and deliberate effort
When the impatient Swiss had spent
thirty years trying to get a bill
passed by the Parliament to nation­
alize the meat business, the Swis
Co-operative Union in the course o'
one year decided to make itself the
owner of the beet trust, and in that
same year made itself the owner of
the beef trust. Co-operation is not
the slow method; it is the fast meth-
od. The impatient, who think they
know a quicker’way, come and have
their little hour and pass away.
The best run coal mines in Great
Britain, the largest bakeries in hun­
dreds of cities, factories, mills,
steamship lines, houses and villages,
streets and parks, fire departments
banking and insurance, recreations,
hospitals and clinics have all been
acquired by the co-operative consu­
mers while impatient souls have vo­
ted for public ownership, asked the
government to take over industries,
planned for labor’s conquest of fac­
tories and got nothing for their
pains.
A hundred examples in the field
of big business could be given to
show that the co-operative method
has succeeded by its sure proceedure
of attack upon the ownership of the
sources of supply where hasty meth­
ods have failed. If the people of the
United States wanted themselves to
own the coal mines and the rail­
roads and the steel trust, indepen­
dent of the government, they could
set on foot the education and the
planning that would give them just
that result. If, "Without vision the
people perish,” then with vision
they survive.

In the Constitution of our Govern­
ment, in the utterances of our found­
ers, and in the whole history of the
United States as a political system,
there is no trace of any economic
ideal excepting that of competition
for profit getting. The shrewdest
business men were to have the big
winnings. Wealth was to be devel­
oped in their hands; and the idea
that came the neareet to a humane
thought was that, if there was much
wealth at the top, some of it would
trickle down among the people. The
race was to the swift. As to the
hindmost, the devil took them. On
this basis, this country was built,
made its fortunes, waged its wars,
and suffered at periodic intervals its

The French writer who said, "The

price we paid for our utter devotion
to profit getting as both a means and
an object of life. Not until the In­
