UpjUt DM Molnn-7 Cooperatives- A Good Way to Get Things Done ven for getting footballs out of trees. Alto, to do many other useful things. More than 60 million Americans share ownership in cooperatives. City, town, and rural people use these co.-opa to get housing, food, health care, credit, insurance, drugs, furniture, and petroleum products. Rural people use cooperatives to get electricity and telephone service. Farmers use co- opt to get feed, fertilizer, chemicals, and steel products and to sell their crops and livestock products. All of this cooperative business totals $20 billion dollars a year. Businb«tunen also use cooperatives to serve their special needs—druggists, grocers, hardwaremen, clothiers, and other independent merchants. Associated Press, the world-wide news gathering agency, is a publishers' cooperative. The boys' football-retrieving co-op is informal, instantaneous. Grown-ups go at it more deliberately. They organize. They elect directors and decide the co-op's purposes, each member having one vote. The directors establish policies and hire a manager to carry them out. The distinctive mark of a co-op is that it serves the people who own it: its customers. It's locally- owned, not-for-profit, serving its member-owners at approximate cost. Through their co-op they have a voice in determining the quality of foods and services they get and the prices they pay. In cooperatives, 60 million persons participate more fully in this country's free enterprise system. They find it a food way. to get things done.
