After a few of the local Masons made short talks, an address was delivered by Mr. Chas A. Mahan, State Leader of County Agents, who outlined the at titude of the Extension Division to ward the Farm Bureau. Following is Mr. Mahan's address: Why a Farm Bureau? "We have had various efforts in the past to get farmers together and in theory it is the thing to do yet in practice it has in some cases met with disappointment. No claims of people have depended so fully upon charity of the other fellow giving him justice as the farmer. There may be several reasons for this. One of them is the isolation of the farmer in his daily ! work. We have at the present time many farm organizations, such as, the Grange, Farmers Union, Equity, Farmers Elevators, Live Stock Ship ping Associations, Fair Boards, etc. Each of which has some particular field of activity and let us hope each succeeds in their one great field of endeavor where all may join jn as sisting in a common cause leading to betterment of the farmer in order that ' be may live better and share reason able profits.
