.MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 16 · 1937 ELEVEN Co-Operation Vital in Success of REA Says Paul V. Mather CLARION--Success in the operation o£ any REA co-operative depends primarily on the efficiency and intelligent co-operation of the organization's managers, directors and consumer-members, declares Paul V. Mather, president o£ the Wright county co-operative. Himself one of the most energetic organizers and supporters o£ rural electrification activity in North Iowa, Mr. Mather "practices what he preaches" because he believes the fate o£ any co-operative --electrical or otherwise--lies in the hands of the men who supervise it. While attending the rural electric inspectors short course at Iowa State college, Ames, Mr. Mather not only emphasized his belief in strong organization managment, but pointed out the importance of a successful start. "A good beginning," he declared, "is pretty close to half the race. And if an organization, co-operative or otherwise gets off to a bad start, it must work twice as hard to overcome that handicap." As head of the Wright county co-operative, which has joined a federation of five counties to obtain current from a co-operative generating plant, Mr. Mather has had close contact ·with HEA activities. He is an enthusiast, almost a "fan" in regard to the rural electrification program. "The need for electricity on the farm," he said, " is growing rapidly. Now it is available to the farmer if he will only signify his intention to use it when energy is provided." Two Fined at Algona.
