Extension Of Parcel Post System
At Parcel Pott Carrier
Is Considered.
Effort Making To Put Producers
In Closer Touch With
The Consumers.
Washington, Sept. 11. Plans for de
veloping the parcel post as an agency
to promote better marketing conditions
between the farm and the city, were dis
cussed at a conference between Sec
retary of Agriculture Houston, Congress
man David J. Lewis.Jof Maryland, and
John C. Koons, a member of the Parcel
Post Commission of ne Postoffice De
partment. For some; time the Depart
ment of Agriculture exrerts have been
studying schemes U fm prove the mark
eting facilities in -America. They want
to put the "peop'e who produce food
supplies in closer touch with the people
who consume them.
While no definite conclusions were
reached at the conference, the sugges
tion was made that the Postofficc De
partment and the Department of Ag
ricelt re may act as joint agents
to bring the city consumer and the pro
ducer closer together.. It was thought
that the parcel post, touching the
farmer in the country and the con
sumer in the city, could be used to
advantage should the farmer be made
to realize its possibilities.
The farmer has been slow in taking
"hold of the parcel post as a produce
transportation condition. The cause
of this is that the armcr does not know
the city consumer and the. city con
turner docs not know the farmer,
and it is believed that the Po6toffice
Department and Agriculture Depart
ment working together may put the
two in touch with each other.
The suggestion was also made that
bi reaus of information coi:Id be es
tablished in the post offices, which would
be used to disseminate information
about marketing. Farmers having pro
duce for sale could advise the postal
b: re tu of information, and by means of
bi 1 tins posted in the postofficc or
Bit ' Ing hquiries over the telephone,
the cit: consumer could be advised
of the of the farmer and the
price and kind of farm produce he has
ready for the market. The consumer
could then place his order with the
farmer for a "market basket" to be
shipped by parcel post.
