Won’t Collect for
Farmers’ Federation
The decision of the Indianapolis Live
Stock exchange to refuse the request of
the Indiana Farmers' federation that the
members of the exchange collect charges
to be levied on consignments of live
stock for the federation met with uni
versal approval.
The federation was notified by letter
that the exchange would stand by Its
position, previously taken, that charge*
would be collected only upon written
consent of the original owner or shipper.
Under the plan first proposed by the
federation, according to local live stoqk
dealers, this collection would have ap
plied to all consignments of live stock
handled by the commission firms,
whether or not the owners or shippers
were members of the farmers’ federation.
