Washington, Oct, 4 A warning to
tho American people tbat tbe great

turned into a national calamity If
speculation Is not guarded agalnBt by
wisely considered legislation and
strict government supervision has
been sent by Ambassador Myron. T.
Herrick to the State Department,, in
connection with tho report which he
Is making as a basis for President
Tatt's effort to establish cooperative
credit in tho United States for the
benefit of tho American farmer.

"The plan which. I am now at work
upon by direction of President Taft
is of the greatest' magnitude, t affects
every individual in the United States.
It is essential that the government,
both Federal and State, assume due
responsibility and thus prevent a re

ThiB field must not be permitted to

without check, of legislation.
"The study which we have made of
the cooperative and mortgage systems
of Europe has demonstrated beyond
question that these organizations, with

and carefully guarded by the state,
