The East has Been the "West capture its markets. It has done this through large production and through efficient organization. As a result, the West has S oreed the East to organize nnd we mut organize with a uniform product, -m uniform package and uniform meth ods of selling. "Massachusetts produces $30,000, 000 worth of agricultural products an nually and consumes $230,000,000 worth of these products. It is not a question with us of disposal of products, but a question of how to dispose of them, and I may say that most organizations for disposal of crops begin at the wron" end." 3 Mr. Wheeler then went into the de tail of growing crops, the purchase of supplies, farm management, credit fa cilities, question of manager, question of marketing, the disposal of surplus, machinery on the farm and the pack ages produce should take. He then said: "The samo good management on one farni is likely to succeed on another xarm in the same, section. The labor of the farm should be utilized on another lie OUCH!
