LANGUM, President BISMARCK Bismarck North Dakota Butter, Egg and Poultry Associa tion Opens Sixth Annual Convention in St. Paul NO ONE INVESTIGATES FARMER COMBINATION Speaker Says "Farmer Gets Mon ey Consumer Hell and the Dealer Is the Goat" (United Press) St. Paul, Minn. March l(i—Closer relations between the producer and the consumer of produce iu these days of high cost of living, was ostensibly the object of the meeting ol' the Min nesota Butter, Egg and Poultrj sociation, in sixth annual convention, Marketing the Ilyan hotel today. and producing a better quality prod uct was considered in several ad-1 dresses. There were other things served besides butter, eggs and poul try which the dealers handle. Served when the association had dined to gether late this afternoon. The Old Alibi That the farmer has come iu for a large share of the profits of the highest price ever paid in the United States was the statement of the dealer. The old alibi supply and demand was pronounced by several of the dealers. But nearly all of them came back with the complaint that the farmer got the lion's share of the increased price of commodities. Farmers operate the greatest trust in the United States, some dealers said unofficially, and not connected with the association. Dealer Is Goat "The farmer gels the money, the consumer hell and the dealer is the goat." this dealer said. "The consum er must pay more, so he takes one long running jump and lights astrad dle of the fellow he pays his money to. This is of course the dealer." "They tell us about supply and de mand, and the newspapers howling about speculation and exorbitant dealers' profits. But the farmer just sits back and jingles his increased profits in his pockets, saying nothing Tie is ^lever satisfied, always demand ing higher prices for his products, and all the farmers are combined into a trust to boost prices. Newspapers and federal investigators and the com mon people, who pay the bills, ap parently never think of investigating the farmer combinations." Hint At Action Some sort of formal action, "seek ing to get out from under the re sponsibility for high prices and place the responsibility where it belongs," was hinted at by members of the as sociation today. "The farmer," one member said, "tells us that while it is true that he gets five times the amount for his produce, vefthe margin profit that we make in marketing the produce should be no larger than it was when his price was smaller. But he over looks thf risk we take. To fill a car with butter formerly cost us $4, 000. Now to fill a car costs us $10, 000. Isn't it reasonable that we should have a greater profit considering the greater capital involved and the great er, risk taken?" That an embargo on the eMgyrt trade would help domestic tratfe!j§« ditions, and make normal the present inflated market seems to be the timent of the members.
