Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 31, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT ^ , THE LETMBHIDGB PA11.T HBWALD SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1918 OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS (Soino Nuts to Crack by the U. F. A., by S. S. DunUam, Ex V!ce-Prcs.) The object of the writer In theae supervision in its trading operations, letters, Is not only to occasionally sag seat Bomo things that con bo nccom-pllshod by the farmers through organization, but to point out some of the defects in the organization as it exists, and to sugecst, it possible, the remedies therefor. The defects must be seen before the remedy can bo nppUed, and it is important that the defects be remedied before the orgau-l�atlon becomes so large and cumber-�ome that the defects may prove fatal. We have haretotora called attention to the necessity of a.proper division of the Province into Directors Districts, and of the holding of District Conventions for the purpose of devel oping the local leadership, of consld �rlng. matters of local interest and more thoroughly discussing and threshing Out matters that must come before the general convention. And we have shown that this defect opens wide the door for the making of errors. As the .organization becomes larger these defects will become more obvious and tie mistakes thus made will be more serious. We do not care  to discuss these matters here. The question that, we -wish to ask is. do we have the machinery, the facilities, for giving the local the assistanco that It demands In order to keep it a live, healthy unit in the great organization? In order to answer this question we must consider frankly what motives men hkve for becoming members of the XJ. P. A. We are pleased to state that there are a great many men am ong the membership who see the big things to be accomplished. The solution of great questions concerning the farmers Interest and the general warfare, and all that this Involves. But we must say that our experience has taught us that the average man joins the V. P. A. for motives that are not o high and are much more local In their application. Such men usually ask themselves, "bow much can I save," or how much can I make by Joining the V. P. A.?" .^'ow there are very many men of this calabre; and after all to them It's a simple business proposition; a question of dollars and cents. Not a very high plain my reader will say. But of uoh are the masses of we common people, and the Great Lincoln said that, "the Lord loved us common people otherwise he would not have made to many of us." This being the case the solution of the local co-operative trading becomes a vital problem Tor the V. F. A. . The local must be tankht how to buy and sell-co-operatively. The representative of the business organization should be a frequent visitor of the local. Tlie grouping'of several locals through some business organization so that they can trade collectively, is Important. Many a local whose members have come together with these objects in view, have been disappointed and allowed to drift apart because they did not know how to get the advantage of co-operative trading. The child that Is thus bom Into the family of the U. P. A. has died, because"of the lack of proper nourlikhmeht-the proper teaching and In such a community the dlfUculty of future organization Is not derreas'id but enhanced, and unless this want can bo supplied eiToctlvely It la doubtful whether the drive for mcmborahip will bear the friilt.s that It should, We have thought that with the proper divislo): of 'ho province into Mrmf tors districts and with the select'on of a local director or his rcprpBenla-tlVB who was an expert in cooporai tlve trading, who should bg paid a remuneration that he cQUld devote nut flcient of his time to the work, going regularly from local to local, posting ihem how to combine their different locals into one trading medium, keeping tlie membership closely in toch w\lh the trading organlzaiion and with the central, paying particular attention to inexperienced locah, and all the time looking after the membor-ship and the educational luterests of the organization, that we would pro^> ably have an alliclent solution to this particular defect.. This, however, involves some changes In the tundainental law ct ihs orcanlzatlon and expenditura of moro money, but even In the one lie'.l oi marketing stock and produce sufllc-iont savings would be niade to more than Justify the expendltuie. ' And men thus associated wltli the body jvould ultimately learn to seo the bi.q-ger things for which the o-ganizatlon stands. Think it over. H. W. WOOD II. W. Wood, president of (he U.P. A., has beon appearing on the Chnu-tauqiia platform in >ranltoba and Saskatchewan, Tho following sketch of him is taken from the Grain Growers' Guide: About 13 years- ago. he came from the United States, located nonr O.ir-stairs, Alta,, and has been engaged In farming there over since. Ho was born in .Missouri, on May ;fl, .1S60. His ancestors were Americana (or several generations, liis father being of Kng-llsli extraction and 'his mnllier of Scotcli llne^ige. Mr. Wood was brought up on a Ml.i.souri farm and attended the public schools in his .district, also one of the colleges of that state. He hns always been inter ested in tho organization of farmers, having joined every farmers' movement which he had tho opportunity to,Join.

WASTE MUCH OF CROP ? � � ^ would it realty pay the oxpenscs ot cutting and threshing in tho usual way? If hot, I would ndrlso cutting it with mower and putting up as hay. ^Thls gives far better satlsf.actlon than putting the stock on to pasture It, and you would bo surprised at tho amount of fodder you will get off ati apparently very light crop. My reasons tor advising cutting It wlUi mower are because when cattle aro put on to graze it, and tho weather ibocomes wet, nuich ot the feed is trampled down land d'paiDroyod, be>-aides which there la always the danger ot there being moro grain than one would calculate, and horses and cuttle over-eating themselves and becoming sick. Better far to feed it in doors, or spread it on the prairie or pasture field judiciously. Once oft tho lond, plowing operations can. be commenced immediate ly, and allow moro work to be done in tho fall. Pall plowing, at least in the Rod River valley, gives much bettor results than spring plowing. As the lond Is sticky tho frost of winter seems to pulverize the clods, and olsO kills many of tho iweedR exposed. Thus the mowing down ot the short grain has two advantages; first, it gives batter feeding results; second, Ita UowB tho work to go forward for next season. It is deplorable that such conditions exist in some districts, but there are abundant crops in others. Nature Is not conservative but democratic In her workings.
