fortunnto for thoro are undoubtedly

oratlvo llvo-Btook shipping associations
In. Buch a way as to handlo all ship
ments mado by thbs'o orgnnizntlons.
Already, a largo volumo of business

to bo noted Is thnt Mieso cooporatlvo
selling ugoncles bwcom avnilabio to
fnrmors only nftr thoy havo perfected
local organisation to do tho things
lndlcntod in tho earlier part of this
discussion.
Up to tho present tlmo an effort
Hub been mado to sot more or loss
woll definod limits to tho field of
cooperation, lioforo concluding it
should bo polntod out thut thoro nro
a few fundamentals upon which all
successful cooperation must bo bas
ed. Thoso principles must bo ad
heroil to whether tho organization 'bo
largo or small. Thoy may bo briefly
slated as followo:
First, thoro must bo Intellectual
or spiritual cooperation boforo thoro
can bo successful material coopera
tion. To bo good cooporators, men
must bo thoroughly convinced of tha
viiluo of cooporntlon. For this rea
son it is much hotter that tho move
ment bo Initiated by the pooplo Im
modlatoly concomed than thnt it bo
brought to them by some ono from
outsldo.
Socond, ' tho physicnl conditions
must bo fnvorablo. There should bo
n sufficient volumo of business, ac
tual or potential, to warrant tho for
mation of nn organization. Only ono
commodity or n small numbor of sim
ilar commodltlos should bo handlod.
TJiird, no business, cooporatlvo or
otherwise can succoed without rea
sonably goo management. As volume
of business donu or number of func
tions performod increases nrrnngo
ment becomes moro and moro lmpor
tnnt.
Fourth, thoro must bo absolute
loyalty on tho pnrt of tho member
ship toward tho organization. To thia
end tho association Bould havo definlto
objects in viow and thoro should bo
a common understanding as to what
tlieso objects aro. Whero thoro Is
any doubt na to tho loyalty of mom
her thoro should be n binding con
tract botwoon them und the associa
tion. The thousands of highly successful
cooperntlvo organizations in tills
country show conclusively that coop
oration nmong fnrmors Is both feas
ible and profltablo If thoy will but
rocognizo tholr limitations nnd ad
here to sound fundamontnl principles.

General Tyndull's message to Le

his ndvoency of flnunchil Independence
with a request that Legion members
pay their dues early in order that tho

believes that too much energy Is ox

NOT TO ASK RED CROSS AID
American Legion Poets Wilt Not Re
quest Funds In the Hands of the
Local Chapters.
Funds In the hands of local chap
ters of the American Ited Cross will
not bo naked for by American Loglon
posts, according to Lemuel Holies, Lo
glon nntlonul ndjutunt.
"The American Hod Cross is co-oper-atlng
with the American Legion In ev
ery way in the furnishing of funds for
service to 'the sick und disabled, nnd
In many localities Is furnishing direct
relief to servlco men and their fnm
Hies," Mr. Ilolles sold. "Funds In the
liiinda of local chapters of Uio Amer
ican Ilcd Cross should not be confused
with the residue funds of the wnr
chest, or other emergency wnr organi
zations which, during the war raised
money for work among soldiers and
sailors, but which censed to function
at the conclusion of hostilities."
Based on court decisions at Athens,
O., and Vovny, Ind., the Legion has di
rected Its pouts to obtain all funds In
the treasuries of omergency organiza
tions which are no longer concerned
ltu relief of World war fighters.

Dear Mils Drooks: M
This Is my first attempt to e.itet- the Corner. H
and I hope I will be welcomed. My questions
are these: (1) I was born on Dcccmlwr 21, H
1000. What Is my lucky day, color, fiowcr H
and months? (2) Which do you think the bcil H
fr a girl to enter teaching or stenography? H
I hav soro Inclination for tcaolilng, but " H
stonography sorms so much caster. (3) I hnvs H
a rather bad disposition, now can I Improvs H
it? Little things irritate we so. I havo n H
rather quick temper and nm very stubborn. H
I y to be pleasant somutlmes but It doesn't H
sem to help any. Wishing succeas to you and H

You are welcome. (I) For tliMu born In Do- H
crrnber Thursday la said to bo their lucky day) H
February nnd June the months; flower, gold- H
nrod; colors, gold, red and green. (2) ThU
depends so much upon the position you are th H
bettor fitted for. If yoo are dlugnoilng your H
sat of disposition correctly, It would seem A
that It would eliminate tha thought of tench, H
Inxv for If there is one position whioh requires H
mora patience and sweetness to fill succetis. H
fully, than another, it surely is thnt of teach- H
Ing. Serving th public In any capacity r- H
quire amiability, patience, and a dwslre to M
pleikse, to Im at all successful. The world Is 'H
general has little ui or regard for the Irrli H
table, surly, Impatlont, unwilling to plcax H
person; and they always hao difficulty Is H
obtaining a position and still mora difficult? H
in retaining It. Now while you are younj H
and hubts and disposition may be mouldc I H
into the beautiful and lovuble, is the tlmo In H
build a character whldi will b a bleislng to H
yourself and very on you come Incontnct with. H
Tune, place, or environment will not ovrrcoms H
tralta f eharacter such as you describe, wi'h- H
out the del tre and effort on your part; I
when I next hear from you I am sure you nl H
hae nude tlie necessary effcrt und are win. H
nlng, (Sea answer to Dra.) I wish you H
bright aad happy New Year. H
