Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 31, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LE1HBHIDOB HrtHAiO INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS Softie Nuts to Cracfc by the by Et object ot the writer in these Is not only to occasionally rjg ftat some things that can be accom plished by the fanners through or but to point out some ot the detects in the organization as It and to ft the Nmediea The defects must fa seen before the remedy can be and It la Important that the be remedied before the organ isation becomes to large and cumber tome that the detects may prove We have called attention io the necessity ot division ot the Province imp Directors Dis and ot the holding of District Conventions tor the purpose of devel oping the local of consid ering of local interest and more thorof ghly and threshing but matters that must come before the general And we have shown that this detect opens wide the door tot the making ot er As the becomes larger these defects will become more obvious and the mistakes thus made will be more We do not care discuss these matters The question that we wish to ask do we have the the for giving the local the assistance that it demands In order to keep it a healthy unit In the great organisation In order to answer this question we must consider frankly what motives men have for becoming members of the We are pleased to state that there are a great many men am ong the membership who see the big to be The solu tion of great questions concerning the farmers Interest and the general war and all that this But we must sar that our experience has taught us that the average man joins the for motives that are not so high and are much more local in their Such men usually ask how much can I or how much can I make by Joining the Now there very many men of this calabre and after all to them Its a Simple business proposition a question of dollars and Not a very high plain my will But of gnch are the masses ot we common and the

trade collec is Many a local whose members have come together with these objects In have been disappointed and allowed to drift because they did not know how to get the advantage of cooperative The child that is thus born into the family of the has because of the lack of proper proper teaching and supervision In Its trading In such a community the difficulty of future organisation is not decreased but and unless this want can be supplied effectively it Is doubt ful whether the drive for membership Will bear the fruits that It We have thought that with the prop er division of into tors districts and the selection of a local director or his representa tive who was an expert In tlve Who should bo paid a remuneration that he cquld devote suf ficient ot his time to the going regularly from local to posting how to combine their different locals into one keep ing the membership closely in toch with tha trading organization and with the paying partWttlav at tention inexperienced and all the time looking after the irtamtdr ship and the educational Interests of tike that we would prob ably have an efficient solution to this particular involves some chan ges in the fundamental law of the organisation expenditure mora but even In the one lleil of marketing stock and produce suffic ient savinga would be made to more than justify the And men thus associated wita the body would
