President Tafi .proposes to .reduce the cost of foodstuffs on the America dinner table by reducing the cost to tbe fanner of producing his crops This 'would be done by establishing In tho interest of the fanner a iinandal machine whiyh would give him access to all the money centres of the worl( and afford him credit at greatly re duced rates and upon more advantag eons terms than he now receives. The complete development of our agricul turn I resources which this would make possible, thinks President Tnft, go a lung way toward settling the problem of the high cost of living.', "What, this plan offers." writes-K sident Taft, "is a means lo secure this country greater productivity, at less from the farms that are now under cultivation, and, above all, to give UK more farms ami; more farm- ers'." Co-operate Credit The plan suggested is. based upon the principles of agricultural co-opera- tive credit now in use practically every country in Europe, i Uniform stare legislation, in of President Taft, is essentialUcj the suc- cessful adoption of this plan and he has invited the governors of nil the states to a conference upon this sub- ject at the time of the ann'uiil meeting j of governors in Washington in De- cember.
