COOPERATION AND PROG RE S>
ARE LINKED TOGETHER
AND MAKES SUCCESS
Cooperative selling in eastern Nortl
Carolina is not the success that i.
should be, according to the statement;
of those who are better informed ii
ill lines of cooperative selling in th
United States. A» for our county, i
has fallen short even of the stride
»f our neighboring counties. One o
„he reasons for this is that the bus
;ness men who are not farming havi
liscou raged cooperation and therebj
caused members ofthe association t
disregard their obligations, thinkini
that hteir advisors were right.
would like to say right here that then
in not a big business in ttve Uni.e'
State* that does not owe all its sue
•en it to cooperation. As to coo pern
.ion among farmers, who can affon'
to go into any business without co
■peration ? *
Fruit, berries, potatoes, hogs, or an;
ike business without farmers cooper

tundred years with all the fine fisl

Think of a hundred years taken t

If others succeed,w hy can't we?

I heard Editor Clarence goer's peak
>n the subject of cooperative market
ng December 6th in Williamston. Ed
tor Poe made a fine pointed talk. One
thing he said 1 am sure all who
heard him, that was, that all crops
hat the farmers were cooperating in
the marketing of were irnbging fair
ly renumerative prices. I thought too
while he talked, that maybe the moon
hadn't changed or no big snows had
blocked the shipping"on the earth
since the new snow plows had been
installed, and that Wall street had
been playing a pretty steady hand,
and the aide tracks at mills were not!
overrun since we quit dumping; hence
no great changes in the market from
day to day.
Men( it is all because of the wak
ing up among southern farmers, and
if everlagtiny-stick-to-it-iv onees pre-
vailß we shall not see theee trouble
some times with marketing any more.
