Good prices for tobacco and the at

view or Senator Neil Christensen of
Beaufort. He is here today to meet
the directors of the Florence Cham
ber of Commerce and discuss certain
activities of the South Carolina De
velopment Board, of which he is pre
Mr. Christensen reports that there
is no tobacco in hid end of the State
as they are taken uip with truck. But
he is intenoely interested in the c
operativo novemrent. Asked for an
interview, he offered the follewing
"Good prices for truck down our
way has hen greatly helped for over
4ix years by our T';ck Growers' As
sociation. They are not all in it; but
all benefit by it and recognize that
fact. So, two years. ago when the
Clemson College Extension Service,
through Dr. W. W. Long, showed me
a proopsed coo-perative marketing
act, it at once enlisted my support.
The Development Board put itself
behind the effort, and we got the bill
enacted into law in 1020. Since then
several coo-perative organizations
have been formed, but the Tobacco
Growerg are the first to market unt
der its provisiori.
It is'of the greatest importance to
the whole co-operativo movement in
the Soutl thab their tobacco associa
tion makes a clean cut sudes&.
Lolayty to this farmers organiza
tiori is needed. Loyalty, active loyal
ty, by every man, woman and child
who has any interest in crop prices,
by bankers, merchants and profess
ional men as well as farmers.
Organized buyers under the old
system are bound to fight you, Cer
tain truck commission houses have
fought our farmerg truck asssoda
tion. They have done it persistent.
r yand without quarter. I am told
that certain tobacco manufacturers
are doing that here. If they succeed
prices will go down.
How it i# possible that any farvmer
or anyone dependent on the prospeN
ity of their section can tolceite such
Olposition is hard to understand.
There is no quarref with the fair
and open competition of independent
buyers, nor with the farmer who excer
cises his right to sell wvhere he pleas
er, though we dio not approve his
judgment, but when they attack the
co-operatives it is hard to- excuse
Thue farmer who sells independently,
if lie has any intelligence, knows that
his increased prices are due to the
co-operatives. So even if he can con
vince himself that he should stay oin
the outside to get all the benefit wa, h
out sharing the burdens, yjet he
should have sense enough to see that
it ir his interest to have the co-opera
tive in the field.
But your folks know all this bet
ter' than I do, and they may feel that
we outsiders are too free with advice.
But I have 'his excuse, the co- oper'
ative movement is the hope of all the
farmers of all sections, and we truck..
