'What la this thins that la sweep

"? 1'lanfci r* r ? t"-|fr at a meeting
of a large number of (armors In
Louisburg on last Friday afternoon.
He told his hearera that it waa Co-op
erative Marketing of (arm crops, and
gave as his definition that "Co-opera
tive Marketing la a bunch of men
coming together in a sensible way to
sell their products in a business way."
The speaker declared that it la "not
like anything else." It is right and
built on right principles with Justice
and a sqoaTg-BCBl IU1 all whu wuia lu
contact with it. He said that no man
who knows the contract can conaclen
\ tiously keep his name 0B..0I it/ . He
-described the conditions leading up to
th> organization In Kentucky and said
they were forced to either atop rais
ing the tobacco or change the system
and he was glad to tell his hearers
that they had changed the system and
everybody was recognising that they
had done wisely.
He said the Association out there had
sxi id from 2 to 15 cents a pound more
-.he tobacco than the outside m?r

signers that 3000 farmers signed up
ds^a single day. He gaid that satis
factiqn in his state waa 99 9-10 per
"Who says the Association is not a
success" he said, "a-lot of selfish ware
housemen. a number of little two by
tour layers and nJnhookers" . "Who
says its a success," he continued, "a
big army of farmers who have signed
the contracts and seen Its value and
a big army of the country's best men
?who wants to see the little boys and
girls and the women folks on the
farms have a fair Bhow lnthls world.
HTK speech #as an able argument
tor the Association and was much en
joyed by all who heard it.
Mr. E. H. Malone Introduced the
