BASIS Reorganized Into A New Setup On May 13th Arm Is Broken Ledyard: Alfred Bnrslou raftered a broken arm, Thursday morning, when he caught tl in a feed mill. His sleeve became entangled in a pulley and forced hla arm backward, breaking it Ledyard: The Farmers Elevator Co. was reorganized into a Consumers Co-operative Co. at a special meeting held here last Wednesday. May 13. Former County Agent W. T. Makestad, now in the extension department at Iowa State College, spoke and also Mr. Llzer, auditor of the farm and grain dealers' association from Fort Dodge. Edward Knoner will continue as manager under the new setup. In brief, the plan of reorganization is this. According to a recent appraisal of the plant and assets, the par value of the stcok today is set at $75 per share, an Increase of 50 percent over the original par value, indicating an excellent condition of business and management. Dividends have been paid regularly. The plan is to give each patron shareholder a new share worth $10 and the rest of the $75 and other shares will be changed to certificates of indebtedness bearing interest at 4 percent. Any non-patronizing shareholder will no longer be a stockholder after these certificates of indebtedness have been retired, thus enabling all new shareholders to be patrons of the elevator and make them active members. All profits from now on will be used for retirement of these certificates, and will take about 10 years. At the end of that time the capital stock of the company will consist only of $10 shares and earnings of patrons which have accumulated during that period. At the end of that time, cash profits may be paid on first year's business. Farmers wilJ be enabled to buy shares of .stock upon payment of Jl and taking the rest from earn ings.
