The Times, Vol. 19, No. 46. 1 FEDERAL FARM BOARD , Means Revolution in Marketing Practices and Methods. Half Billion Dollars For Financing Campaign. (EDW. T. DARKER, la the Daily Sentinel, Grand Junction, Colorado) The development of a cooperative farm marketing system on a national cale, Ad outlined by the federal farm board, is a task In pioneer effort scarcely less ardoua than the con quest of the American continent by American farmers and American In' duetrlal Institutions from its prim eval lorc-sand prairies. It means a revolution in marketing practices and methods. A half billion doUars of government tax money has been appropriated to finance the campaign. An intelligent individual compre hension of the task; its gigantic magnitude and its relation to the future prosperity of the nation in directly and the farmer directly is necessary if the farm board receives the desired cooperation of the agri cultural producers of the nation. For this purpose a brief review of the elements entering into the prob lem is here given: The present system handles all farm products on a strictly SDeculative market in which the entire control of each product is in the hands of the speculaor from the time it leaves the producer until it U de livered tojhe consumer. The protits of the speculator de pend upon the margin or "spread" oi prices between producer and con sumer. Naturally human greed enters such a system to make this 'spread' as wide as possible and every ingenious device known to commerce is employed to this end. ' It is also quite natural that in ex ercising the vast power this system gives tne speculator that many abuses spring up and the many commercial parasites attach themselves to the system. It is conceded by all persons both. in and out of this system that a reform of this system is impossible and that the only avenue by which both producer and conumer of farm products may hope to escape the burdensome exactions and extortions of the system is through cooperative xarm marketing organizations. These organizations must face the facts that this present system has developed through time immemorial It is manned by a vast army of trained men of high intelligence and many generations of successful ex perlence. The use of this system has become a fixed marketing habit with all con nected with it; farmer, local dealer represented the system,' railroads and their transportation agencies every individual of the vast army of and their speculators employees who snare the profits of the svstem every, jobber and retailer as well as every consumer. It is no small task to induce a whole nation to discard habits of such long standing and such in the great market centers where they deal airectiy with the retailer. Even the federal farm board with Its unlimited financial resources can not do it alone. It will require the united assistance of producers and consumers and the (intermediate agencies necessary to operate the new system. It is the task ol a giant. It is a national task. An educational campaign touching every nerve and fiber of our com mercial life must be stimulated in to cooperative, acticity. This success along the proposed line is possible has been amply demonstrated. Cooperatives handl ing California citrus fruits and nuts, the poultry industry in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah and possibly a few others, the cotton growers and the tobacco growers of the south, the creamery industry in certain sections of the country, have each been able to cut away from the old speculative marketing system and establish their own marketing agencies where they deal directly with the retailer. These organizations have demonstrated that their system can reduce prices to the consumer ana Increase prices to the producer by reducing the 'spread' of the speculative . system. have organizations done can be duplicated in every other line of agriculture is the be-- . lief of the federal farm board. Three of their were members taken directly from these successful cooperative organizations.

The block will be preserved and kept as a permanent display at the school. Air. Ingram gives us the following story ot ttie history ot these timbers, and an interesting description of events at the Liuie thc-- were installed in the Executive .Mansion: Iu a storehouse of the Office of Public Buildings and Public Parks iu Washington, is an aucieut wooden root truss just old timber until you know its history. But as soon as Lt. Col. Grant III, chief of the office, can find place to house the truss it will come forth proudly from the old lumber pile and be exhibited as one of the nation's historic relics. The truss ia one of those removed from the roof of the White House in the renovation of the mansion now nearing After completion. literally holding the roof over the heads of the presidents of the United States tor the last 112 years, these trusses are in excellent condition as far as the wood is concerned, and a half section of one will be preserved not only for Us historical association but as an example of the remarkable Twenty- - six durability of wood. presidents have lived in the White House since the trusses were put in Funeral Is Held For Joseph W. Barnes .. , place. In 1814, after , . t&e" Battle of Bladensburg, the British soldiers With their flaming torches, came thronging up Pennsylvania Avenue and burned the White House, the fire destroying the interior and seriously damag.ng some of the masonry. President Madison and has famous wife, Dolly, made a dramatic departure from the Executive Mansion, tleeiiig up Pennsylvania Avenue just ahead of the British. Reconstruction was begun Bhort'.y after the fire, the new roof being held in place by sturdy wood trusses. Today these trusses, with their timbers in almost as good condition as when they were cut 112 years ago, are interesting as examples of early The timbers, all workmanship. hand hewn, are held together not only by mortising but with dowels and heavy wrought iron straps pounded out by hand. When the old roof was removed is was found that there was practically no deterioration of material In any vital place in the massive main roof timber trusses and only the ends of the timbers forming the trusses over the north portico were damaged by powder post beetles. Builders of a century ago were not familiar with the use of preservatives to lengthen- - the life of the exposed wood and did not treat the material as would the builders ot today. Overloading an attice that was not designed for occupancy of any kind and certain defects of construction, as well as subsequent '"tinkering" rather than any deterioration of the wood, are said by army engineers to have been responsible for the unsafe condition of the roof. A report of the Office of Public Buildings and Public Parks, under whone supervision the renovation of the historic building is being carried out says in part: "Although nearly all of the removed timbers, with the exception of those over the north portico were in a good state of preservation, most of the trusses had long since ceased to act as such. At some time in the past, the upper chord of one of the main trusses had been cut entirely through and a section removed to make room for a light wall; that the truss did not collapse was evidence that it was no longer acting as a truss." - Funeral services were held last W. Friday afternoon for Joseph Barnes, with Bishop Thomas Bailey in charge. The invocation was given by John E. Lunt. The speakers were Isaac H. Grace, P. P. Christlson, President A. H. Belliston, President Thos. H. Burton and the closing remarks by Bishop Bailey. The musical numbers were: vocal solo, Mrs. T. W. Allred, accompanied by Mrs. Diane G. Booth; organ solo.
