VOLUME XXXVII. LAURENS, SOUTH CAROLINA, WEDEDY API 19,, 192iUBR4
Farmer Friends: Cooperative muar
keting is a national question now,
Nearly every commodity of the (armer
is being considered now to be niarket
(d cooperatively. California farmers
are marketing the following things co
operatively: Apricots, olives, beans,
pears, poultry, seed, grain almonds,
peaches, figs, cattle, apples, raisinb,
dairy products, oranges, nursery pro
ducts, walnuts, 1wool, and berries of all
/ kinds. The California farmers are in
the best condition financially than any
other farmers in the United States.
Wh'y, 'because they are putting brains
in their farming as well as muscle.
Once several years ago they were more
nearly broke than the farmers are now
in Laurens county but they woke up,
organized and sold their products co
operatively. South' Carolina farmers
can be in good shape -financially five
years from today if they will only take
hoed and sell their products cooper
atively. I have con'fidence in the
farmers of this state because I am a
native S6uti Carolinian and was raised
on the farm. The -only hopes we have
to get cost out of the iproduction of
any and all products is to sell together.
If enough cotton is signed up in the
South wo can control the price but we
cannot until then.
Some farmers will object to this
systeni of marketing because they will
say that it will take their independence
away from them. , You have no inde
''pondence o' your cotton now, exce-pt to
-'gfuse what Is offered to you for it.
The marketing system will give 'you
more independence than you have ever
had ibecause you can put the cost of
production plus a reasonable profit on
it the same as the merchant does, and
you are entitled to it. YogA have all the
CAMPAIGN IS FOUNDED
ON BUSINESS 'kND
Comlued,. with Systematic Co-opera
tion and Judgment will be Power.
Tenl reasons why persons living in
'Lautens' trade district should 'buy in
First. "The buy in Laurens move
ment" is founded on a logical business
basis, 'being reasoned out by the laws
of comnmon sense and business 'science.
Second. "In 'union there is strength"
and comibined with systematic co-op
eration and the display of good judg
ment becomes a titanic power for good.
Third. "The buy in Laurens move
ment" in othIer -words "patronize home
industry." That is the' community of
interest spirit which forms the basic
principle of "the buy in 1Laurens
movement," has for its object the bet
terment of all the 'people, the allied
industries and business interests,
swhich brings together the whole peo
ple under two general classes, viz:
The :producer and the consumer.
Fourth. The producer and consum
ers are 'brought closer .together and in
closer touch wvith this movement,
wh~ch has for its aim 'the general bet
terment of tge combined interests of
the whole people.
Fifth. "The buy irf' 'Laurens move
ment," if carrked out in spirit; gives
us a community of abroad minded pee
ple, which means :better government,
better and more impk'oved industPies
of every kingl.
Sixth. When you can~ secure the
concerted efforts of the whole 'people
of aA cortain trade district, along lines
looking' to their mutual wvelfare and
protection, yon can accomplish won
derful results aloxig, progressive lines.
Seventh. "The fbuy in .Laurens
movement" implies the betterment sof
the home, which is mnoht beautiful and
commendable, and when studied and
considered from every viewpoint, must
appeal 'to every true man who loves
, Eighth. The combined efforts of
the citizens of .the trade distriet, by
boosting' "the 'buy in ,Laurens inove~
ment," will secure theoanost 'beneficial
social and financial r'eaultes.
Ninth: (Hence it 'behooves each and
e yone of us to enter nt9 the mnoye~
m ith the spirit and itldert'and'
ing, and the success of 't4,'t1y in
ILaurens movement" is asauredl.
