ELEVATORS ARE CO-OP EXAMPLE Farm Board Disapproved by Boyle in Address in Minnesota. MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 18. (#)_ Grain marketing thru local farmers elevators has stood the acid test of time and is now our largest example of successful co-operative marketing, Prof. James E. Boyle of Cornell university, Ithica, N. Y., told delegates attending the twenty-fourth annual farmers elevator convention here today. In summarizing the agricultural marketing act and the farmers elevators movement, Professor Boyle said the farm board's idea of marketing thru great centralized agencies or pools is economically unsound. Grain marketed thru the local farmers elevators is handled at the lowest margin of cost of any agricultural commodity, he said. "The Farmers' elevators are built on the sound principle of self help. They do not need any state aid in the form of subsidies, grants or cheap credit. They are sound business institutions, not 'objects of charity. State aid plus state interference, its necessary concomitant, will prove in the end a serious menace to the farmer elevator movement. "Farmers' elevators and other farmer co-operatives need to fight for more industry co-operation-that is, the co-operation among all the different interests in one industry. You are all in the same boat. "The next practical step is to have the agricultural marketing act either repealed or amended. I suggest amendment, so that we may keep a farm board but deprive it entirely of its present functions of merchant, speculator, and banker." E5uttermakers of Three Counties Hold Meeting at McGregor Creamery McGREGOR, Feb. IS.--The but- termakers of creameries of Calyton, Allamakee and Winneshiek counties met in McGregor today.
