Tho governor's Idea Is to meet with the farmer, sit mound tho tablo and find out from him just what mcusuies are necessary in the way of legislation to better agricultural conditions in tho stae. Tho spirit was demonstrated ut tho agricultural conreicnce called by Governor Hyde at the capital last Tuesday. Apparently the nrlnclpul thought In the minds of the farmer today is bet Icr marketing conditions and laws to regulate tho profiteering middleman. There also wax some discussion of co operative marketing, but the confer ence did not talco any uction on i the t matter. o A New Venture, The I'roducers' Cold Storage Com pany, liiconoriitd for $50,000, has been organized in St. Joseph.
