Editor Koo wee urier:
Since you .so kindly published my
recent letter, I am tempted to try it
again, as you know Lt is human na
ture lo enjoy blowing one's own
horn onco in a -hilo, and ! will ad
mit that 1 secure a groat deal of en
joyment from seeing my name in
print, whether any one else does or j
not. And then J did have the satis-'
faction of knowing that at least one
good citizen of Oconee county en
joyed my letter, and would like to
have moro good lotters, as ho so very
kindly expressed it. I will return the
compliment and say that 1 enjoyed
his letter, and will say that it con
tained more good, sound common
sense than any article 1 have read in
a long time. If the farmers would
only take Mr. McDonald's advico and
rnlso their own food and foodstuff
for ?hpmcinivps and fond for Hie nnn
produe'ji's, tho' (a'rmov hud the uou

Tho way to get a good price for
any commodity is to curtail tho pro
duction. Just as prohibition raised
the price on moonshine corn liquor,
so would tile production of all food
and feedstuff nt homo help to raise
the price on cotton and tobacco
the farmers' money crops-because
if the farmers raise all their feed
stuff at home they will naturally
have to redttco their acreage in cot
ton and tobacco, which will shorten
the production of those articles lo
such an extent thal they will gol n
fair price1 for what (hey do raise, and
then they will have their own home
raised food and will nol ho compelled
to run in debi al limo prices, as is
tho case now. Instead of going imo
debi thc farmer would have surplus
money to put in tho hank or buy
Kord automobiles, which, by the way,
1 think would |>o rt good investment
for any farmer after he has got hts
homo paid for, as the whole family
could enjoy it on Sundays and holi
days, and besides the enjoyment he

liko manner hy raising your own
food and somo to spare for your
non-producing city cousins; and
signing up with the co-operative
marketing movement and pulling to
gether with your neighbors to your
mutual benefit -then will be the
timo to begin planning to give your
family and yourself some of the
pleasures you so richly deserve.
And while wo are speaking of au
tomobiles I want to tell you of a
conversation I overheard in a cafe
ono day between tho proprietor and
n traveling salesman. Tho traveling
man said that ho would bo in sym
pathy with the farmer hut for the
fact thal during tho time that tho
farmer was getting a good price for
his cotton and tobacco ho went and
bought Ford automobiles instead of
laying up for the hard times that
were coming. And the proprietor of
the cafo said yes, that it did not
make any difference with tho farmer
whethor he got anything for his pro
ducts or not, as ho did not havo
senso enough to enjoy lt. I know
that tho proprietor hod a big, nico
car of his own, as I was personally
acquainted with him, and I guess
that tho traveling man had one, too,
ns most of them do, so I had to butt

tho world, was ns much entitled to
ride ll) a Ford automobile as : non
producer was entitled to ride tn his
big, fine car? If there has to bo a j
di fte renco it seems to mo th.it it j
would bo nothing but fair and just j
to lei tho farmer ride in tho 1/ ; car !
and make tho middle-man walk, t?nt ;
thc fact remains that there was lot
of truth in their statements titler nil,
as wo all know a lot of farmer.-; did
bay automobiles and other things - .
luxuries-before they were able to
alford them, and now they are suf
fering from their over-con fidonco
that good limes had como lo stay.
Silt there is an old saying that there
is nothing so bad that ever happons
but that some good will come from
it, and 1 have come to believe it. So,
perhaps, this period of hard times
will teach us a lesson and show us
that if we want to be successful wo
must be more economical until such
limo as wo know beyond a doubt
that we can afford tho luxuries that
wo know we aro entitled *.o. Perhaps
it will bo the means of bringing the
farmers together in one big union,
I where li will !>?? "Ono tor all and nil
?or uno,." and it lt doo;, (hal li will [

i Why should not ibo farmci organ
izo? Almost every other class of
working peoplo havo organized to
their mutual bonefit. Tho merchants,
bankers, manufacturers and owners
of all big industries have their or
ganizations. Why? Because they
know that in union there is strength
-as individuals wo havo to take
what ls offered or doled out to us,
and pay tho price that is asked of
us. As a unit, in one big organiza
tion, we can demand a fair, price for
nur products and got it. And tho
way to got Into this big organiza- j
lion is to get. out and work for it. !
Don't sit down and say. "Well, I
will lot the other fellow do all the
work and the talking and organiz
ing, and If there is any benefit to bo
derived fruin ll, l will profil by it as
much as tho other fellow. And don't
think thai by just simply signing
your name on the dotted lino and
taking the obligation that there is
nothing else for you to do. You
must work for it and talk for it; got
up somo enthusiasm over it, and get
your neighbors enthused over it.
That is the way to make a success
of lt. If you want to raise a good
crop, you do not just go out and run
off your rows and put tho seed in tho
ground, and sit back and watch tho
stuff grow. If you do you will be
badly disappointed in the fall. And
so it. is with any kind of business or
organization. If wo want to make a
success wo must work and plan for
it in order that lt will go forward
instead of backward. And a good
farmers' union and co-operative as
sociation for marketing is so neces
sary to tho best Interests of the far
mers, as well as the balance of the
world, that wo should spend the
time and energy needed unsparingly
