MOTORS To Whom It May Concern: On Saturday evening I attended the 37th annual meeting of the Farmers Co-op Society No. 1; and want to report I am a ginning customer for the past three years; and a seed delinting customer for several years. I feel the Coop Gin and its directors have done a wonderful service to farmers of this area. In my estimation some dis^- cussion should have been made to the amount of customers •who feel they have been damaged'; fcut who are still depending on a decent settlement of their losses; not iby court action, rather than trying to lefi stockholders ibelieve .that the people who were dissatisfied were mostly from distance points. I -had approximately 10,000 pounds of fuzzy seed delinted, of which I had planted 1 56 acres of fuzzy seeds, which came to a good stand but was washed out by rain fin places enough to need replanting. After delinting I planted this place and 60 acres more, which did not germinate and after THfWELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, April 16, 1964 being examined by the manager of the Co-op Gin, and by his advice and my knowledge we did not (plant any more of these seeds. Five Thousand pounds of these seeds are still in the warehouse of the Co-op Gin. I was assured by the manager, Dub Matrchant, that they would do what was right, I didn't ask for damages^ only planting seed; tout now they are asking me to pay them for delinting these seed; in which they knew were good before delinting. Now I wish to say the loss of $1200 worth of seed plus having to ipay $.18 iper pound for replacement seed, and paying for the delinting which mined the seed is a little x- ibove the call of dutfy. I still do not want any damage for anything but planting seed'. Anyone who wants to check what this cost me will find •that it amounts to at least twice the amount of planting seed. This is mo laughing matter, and anyone who knows the facts, and has been told by reliable men that they would do what is right should Ibe dis- aippointed to know that no consideration has. Jbeen shown, and no checking to prove the right or wrong of each case. Their lawyer said it would be two or three years before the claims would be payed if proven; this does not sound like justice or sound thinking for leading citizens to go by. I felt that there was an under-tone of Taughter at the meeting Saturday of the seven men, that was trying to settle a claim by the only means' that was left open to them. This I do not approve of. They have been at least customers of the Co-oip Gin and should (be considered, regardless of who they work for, or where they live. A Co-op Gin Booster-in-douM, JOHN C.
