That which raises the plane of living for the farmer must of necessity raise the plane of living of the occupations de- pendent upon the prosperity of the farmer. There has been no movement in re- cent years that had n program so con- struetive as the farm bureau move- ment. Its program attempts to solve all the problems of the agriculturist. It will not succeed in solving all his problems, but it will succeed in rais- ing his standards of living, conse- quently it will profit all other lines of endeavor. The farmer wants good schools, good churches, good roads and all the other products of civiliza- tion when he has the means to pay for them.

The farmer makes his mistake completed and that have htludreds of From tile prelent end ei" tilt, ~r:~cl Ih(, when he undertakes to retard pro- gress because it costs too much. He is working at the wrong end of the problem. He should not cry out against improvement and call for a curtailment of public improvements. Rather he should work at the other .end and endeavor to correct the error by construction rather than by de- struction. This is the aim of the farm bureau. Its object is to construct rather than destroy. It does not v~lsh to curtail p, ublic improvement, but it aims to secure for the farmer a larger return for his labor and thus enable hlm to pay for better schools, better churches and better roa~s. In the days of the saloon, when a young man was jilted by his sweet- heart he undertook to spite her by taking to drink, thus proving his un- worthiness of her love. If, on the other hand, he had undertaken to show his manhood ~-;y rising above her and proving to the world his maa- hood he would have shown his worth- iness. This is similar to the case el" the farmer who wishes to do away with the county agent and a great many public improvements because taxes are too high. He destroys the things which will better his condi- tion. He should endeavor to seek means to raise his profession and ihus prove his worthiness rather than his unworthiness, by asking for the abol- ition of what instrnments he has Io increase his profits. Had the labor union,~ sought to de- stroy the schools or to ask for the ahlition of hospitals and all the things that go to make up civilization a few years ago he today would be sunk to the lowest depths of degrada- tion. They begun at the right end of the problem by asking for a fair re- turn for their labor and a day short enough to permit thenl to enjoy the fruits of civilization. They did not say our children must go to over- crowded schools because good ones cost too much. they said our chil- dren are emHtled to the best schools that money and brains can produce and we must receive enough to pay for them. This is the object of the farnt bu- reau. TheMe ars the things it hopes to secure for the farmer and all right thinking farmers will see the force ~f the argument and work for the suc- cess of the farm bureau. millions of acres of land to reclaim lllUSt act as a unit. In justice to the. great undeveloped west the '~;enators and representatives froln these west- era states lnust act as a block wheil- ever this question is touched and pub.. lie sentinlenl in this line is develop- ing. There must be unity of purpo:~e and consolidated action backed by a solid front of educated community thought in each state--in tact. there In(IS( be western consolidated conl.- lllunity eonsciell ceness. This is the purpose ot l he great reclamation organization that has been formed at Boise. Idaho, with Governor Davis at its head and with the solid backing of all the execu- tives of the west. With such an or- ganization, backed by public sent,- ment buih upon broad lines, nol neg- lecting local reclamation problems, tile wesl can hold its own with Atlan- tic coast and southern stme interests. WISE BANKER'S STATEMENT. A. L. Mills of the Portland Firs! National bark has becoule a national authority on financial conditions in 20 years. As a young man he f~umbly slarted life in the chicken business. ile has ~ust auended the quarterly 2ederal reserve bank conference '~t Washington, D_ C., and as representa- tive of the Twelfth Federal Reserve district, notes slowly improving busi- ness eondition~. He is of the opinion that there will be uo g~al improve- ntent until the European,,~ituation is cleared up, and banks w,ill continu:~ to discourage borrowing for purely speculative purposes. He made tile following apparently level-hea~ie,l stateulent : "Responsible borrowers can get nloney in all the financial (',enters for legitimate purposes, but bankers turn a deaf ear to oil those wishing to borrow for speculation. Corl)orations and business houses that have liquidated their old indebted- heSS, marked off their losses and put their inventories down to a rock bot- tom basis have no difticulty in get- ting credit. Crops are being marketed in an orderly but rapid manner, liq- uidation of debts is (,aking place, even though the returns to the farmer and grower are unsatisfactory." A WELL-BALANCED FARMER. He is the man not afraid of the banker, the ulerchant or the railroad, but realizes that he needs them all in his business. He realizes that he can- not live by himself alone, but must have non-producers to make a market for the products of his soil. He is not expecting the state or the nation to make him rich or raise his chal- dren or take care of his family in his old age. He lends his influence, his musale and his money toward secur- ing better roads to the farms, the A FINE EXAI~LE. R. C .MeCroskey of Garfield affords a fine exemplification of the virtues of courage, patience, thrift, industry and generosity. During his long aml active career he has rendered many services of value to the citizens an2 especially the farmers of Whtiman county. But by far the biggest thing he h~as ever done is the splendid ex- ample of cheerful fortitude and sub- school house and the church of his lime patience which he has set--in community. He helps to build better facing the crushing calamity of losing schools anti churches for his own chil- his eyesight just at the time when the dren and his neighbors, even if he has result of long years of thrift and ill- to make a personal sacrifice to do it. tnoaotllill ~q~PI ~tI()tIi~F ~.~illl {''et h3 rite Snllll~liil fit all l~iev6Iiol (H 11;..%47 f~et.
