POOL YOUR WHEAT
Two Methods Provided for Handling Pooled Wheat This
Year—Pooling and Consigning—Member May Do
Either.
Method 1.—Pooled Wheat
Menders may deliver their wheat to any elevator operating under
a public warehousemen's license (practically all elevators in the state
operate under a warehousemen's license), upon delivery of wheat
to the elevator the agent weighs, grades, determines the dock
ape and issues the regular elevator warehouse receipt for same.
The member, in order to receive an advance on his wheat, takes the
warehouse receipts to his bank, who makes the regular advance to
him and draws a sight draft with the tickets attached thereto on the
Association. If the wheat is encumbered the banker or party making
the advance should be informed as to any liens or mortgages against
the member's crop.
Method 2.—Consigned Wheat
Members may consign their wheat in carload lots through the Asso
ciation for direct sale. They may obtain an advance trough their
banker, who wall draw a draft on the Association and attach the

ATTEMPT TO BESMIRCH SENA
TOR'S WAR RECORD PROVES A
POLITICAL BOOMERANG. *
(By Raymond Lonergan)
Some weeks ago, in an article print
ed in LABOR, I gave the plain un
varnished facts concerning ♦LaFol
lette's war record.
Among the many letters received in
this office commenting on the article
was the following from a reader in
Georga;
To the Editor of LABOR:
I wish to thank you for your article
on La Follett's St. Paul speech, I have
been a democrat 30 years but had
about made up my mind to vote for
La Follette and Wheeler. . Then came
all this hue and cry about the Sena
tor's "war record," with charges of
pro-Germanism, pacifism, etc., and not
one of the large dailies saying a word
in his defense. .Naturally I began to
waver and think perhaps, there was
something in these charges.
Then came your article giving the
true facts of the case. I have now defi
nitely decided to vote for these candi
dates, thanks to the copy of your pa
per falling into my hands.
Keep up the good w'ork and let the
people, know the truth!
Yours truly.

In a letter addressed to Senator At

general manager of the Associated
Press, said:
"The quoted matter was not read

'no' would have been seen. The St. j

LETTE
On December 2, 1918, almost 15
months after La Follette had delivered
his St. Paul speech, Senator Dilling- !
ham of Vermont, a standpatter, pre- i
sented ^he repoil of the majority of
the Senate committee ci\ privileges
and elections and asked the Senate to ;
adopt the following resolution;
Risolved, that the resolution of
the Minnesota commission of. public
safety, petitioning the Senate of the
United States to institute proceedings
looking to the expulsion of Robert M.
La Follette from the Senate because
of a speech delivered by him in St.
Paul, Minnesota, on September 20,
1917, be, and the same hereby are,
dismissed for the reason that the
speech in question do°s not justify!,,
any action by the Senate." ^
The resolution was agreed to by 50
yeas and 21 nays.
An Interesting Roll Call
Among those who voted to vindi-1,,
cate La Follette were Kellogg of Min
nesota, who had fathered the origin
al charge; Lenroot of Wisconsin, prob
ably the bitterest enemy La Follette
has in public life; Cummins of Iowa,
Weeks of Massachusetts, nov/ Secre

Lodge of Massachusetts, leader of the
Old Guard; Moses of New Hai.ips.hire,
chairman of the Republican na

Wadsworth of New York.
On the Progressive side it was sup
ported by Borah of Idaho, Kenyon of
Iowa, Ashurst c.f Arizona, Norris cf
Nebraska, Johnson of California and
many others.
After giving La Follette this sweep
ing vindication, the Senate proceeded
to adopt a resolution reimbursing the
Wisconsin Senator on account of the
expense he had. been compelled to in
cur in preparing his reply to the
charges against him.
This resolution was passed without
a dissenting vote.
