QUESTION# AUDIT OF WE AT («BOB KBS ASSOCIATION (Continued from page one) would make 7c per bushel handling charge out of It, but we didn't. Whose fault was it? I guess it must have been the drain Exchange's fault for the price dropped before we could get it on the market. « Speaks of Salaries. I don't know, hut It has been cur rently reported, that two officers of the Association In American Falls have been retained for a period of five years at salaries of $6,000 and $5,000 per year. That Is $11,000 for two men per year. With wheat at 60c per bushel It would take 18,333 1-3 bushels of wheat each year to pay their salaries handle one million bushels of wheat per year and at a price of 60c per bushel which would amount to $600, 000, it would cost 3 per cent to pay these two men their salaries. Of course these two men might he worth the prjee. Proof of this will be fur nished by experience, very costly ex perience too, but of course the farmer will pay the bills. "I have gone into this quite fully for the purpose of showing the farmer that the local dealers are rendering a service to them thut Is worth while, and that they should not be led astray by any reports unless they are thor oughly Investigated. "Very truly yours, "CHESTER GREENE." A MR. WHEATGROWER DID YOU GET PAID FOR YOUR WHEAT? They say, "Figures don't lie," but some are misleading: note these put out over the name of a so called firm of "Certified Public Accountants:" Base : No. 1 Red Wheat. Net amount realized by members ... Average price paid by local dealers • Net gain to members.... $1.55183 per bushel 1.374 per bushel $ .17783 per bushel We Claim The Above Figures DO Lie! How many ''Members" actually received $1.55 per bushel for their wheat. It would appear from the above figures that the wheat grower who was not a "MEMBER" received practically 18 cents per bushel LESS for his wheat than the "MEMBER" did. THAT IS NOT TRUE. Now Read Some TRUE Figures Beginning August 6,1920, our DAILY AVERAGE price was as follows: $2.02 per bushel . 2.11 per bushel 1.85 per bushel 1.47 per bushel 1.34 per bushel An Average Daily Price of More Than $1.75 Per Bushel Every man who sold his wheat to us prior to Jan. 1, 1921, did NOT get $1.75 per bushel for his wheat: some received as high as $2.22 per bushel and some as low as $1.34 per bushel.
