The Administration is highly favorable to farm cooperatives. When ex- President Hoover spoke on the farm problem a few weeks ago at Lincoln, Ne braska, he too pointed to the importance of farm co operatives. The cooperative market ing idea is entirely non-po litical and non-partisan. It is not the product of poli tics—instead, it is the pro duct of natural economic forces. It represents an in evitable evolutionary pro cess.

Moody ‘Helping to Build Coolidge’ To correct an error in his advertisement on the part ot the printer, in this week's issue of the Examiner; we left out the word “natural.” The ad should read “Coolidge is Natural Gas Minded.” Mistakinglyi we stat/ed “Coolidge Is Gas Minded.” Well, before some good citizen that is rather con servative should come in and cause the printer to do the jack rabbit twifct down some of these cot ton rows, methinks it best to ir~ke the correction, and, if necessary, to give away several gold nug gets. After all, if it was not tor the modernization in the uses of “Natural Gas” and electricity we would continue to live in the stony age of candlesticks and wood.
