FARMERS UNION LEGISLATIVE COMMIS?TEE AT WASHINGTON / April 4, 1935. Washington, D. C--Open hearings on the Frazier-Len:ke re- financing bill were held by the Sen['tte Agricultural Committee this week. Nr. M. W. Thatcher and Mr. D. L. O'Connor appeared in behalf of the Northwest Farmers Union Legislative Committee in vigorous support of this legislation. The amendments, known as H. R. 7088, to the Agricultural Adjustment Act are in grave danger of being defeated due to the combined opposition of the processors and handlers of agricul- tural products. These amendments prbvide for the licensing of processors and handlers of farm products when two-thirds of the farmers have signed marketing agreements and asked for the licensing of the processors and handlers of the products marketed in that arear These marketing agreements and H. ceases contemplate the protecting of the farmers market from underselling by distributors, and also provides for the inspection of books and records of these processors and handlers by the Department of Agriculture for the purpose of eliminating unreasonable profits. It must be remembered that in- cluded in this bill is the Parity Amend- ment which provides for an increase in the benefit payments of ever forty millions of dollars per year on wheat alone. Write your Senators aud Congress- men today urging them to support this legislation. The Flaxseed Bill, on which this committee has done considerable work, will be up for hearings by both the Senate and the ttouse Agricul- tural Committees very soon. Due to the present state of affairs he~e, it is very difficult to get any bill enacted into law. Every Farmers Union local and businessmen's organizations should send resolutions to their congression- al delegation reqhesting the passage of the Flax Bill as it means millions of dollars additional revenue to the Northwest. C. S. BARRETT Washington, D. C.--Charles S. Bar- rett, formerly president of the Na- tional Farmers Educational and Co- operative Union, died at his hems in Union City, Georgia, April , The in- terment will occur at the family bury- ing plot in Union City, Saturday, April 6, Ills death was caused by cancer. Mr. Barrett, who voluntarily retired from the I~resldency of the National Farvae7~, Union after having served twimty-two years, was the first Na. tional preMdent of the organization. During his incumbency, the Farmers Union spread from the South where It had its inception, into Central, Mid- dle West, and Western states, reach- ing a total membership of 800,000 with state organizations in thirty-five states. This organization was the pio- neer in the field of co-operation and developed a vast buying and selling co-operative Inarketlng activity, the business of its institutions amounting to over a billion dollarsa year. During the World War, Mr. Barrett was appointed by President Wilson on his advisory council and served with a group of distinguished American citizens on the commissiou of Food Control. At the request of President Wilson, he went to Paris in an ad- visory capacity at the time of Presi- dent Wilson's visit to Europe when the nations of the world were draft- ing the treaty with Germany at Ver- sailles. Mr. Barrett was a friend and ad- visor of each of the last six presi- dents. It was largely due to his coun ell and recommendations to President Theodore Roosevelt, the result of which was the calling of his Rural Livestock Commission. Five years ago, Mr. Barrett volun- tarily retired from the presidency of the Farmers Union, and since that time spent a good deal of time in Washington, where he was occupied principally with writing a weekly col- umn which was syndicated to several hundred papers throughout the coun- try, as well as preparing memoirs of his unusual and most Interesting life and activities, Mr. Barrett is survived by his wife and six sons.

If you do not receive your copy, send a postcard to the state office asking for it. JUNIOR COLUMN Directed by Mrs. G. H. Edwards, State Junior Leader. Dear Juniors and Juveniles: This is Saturday afternoon, sunny and beautiful for March. The offices are quiet and the streets are teeming. Across the river toward South St. Paul is the new compounding plant of the Farmers Union Central Exchange. As we encircle a bluff, Mr. Syftestad says, "There IT Is!" IT is the plant, standing high and alone, very much like the picture of it you have seen, for the exterior is nearly finished. The high steel letters spelling "Farm- crs Union" have Just been erected over the entrance. It takes very little imagination to picture how the completed building will look. Mr. Syftestad practically apologized for the piles of brick, sand and mortar and discarded lumber strewn about, but I did not even have to shut my eyes to make the scaffold- ing disappear, the grass springs up, and a pervading air of busy-ness about the filling station that Is, as yet, just a foundation. I am glad that I saw the scaffolding and th~ b:gken brick. Years from now i shall peer ocer the top of my .~pectacles and" tell my wide- eyed ~ra~ldchildren how when I was a~ ~i"rl I saw the old Farmers Union Central Exchange Building before it was finished and the floor laid, and how, although we thought it a large and beautiful building and were very, very proud of it, it Was a very small and insignificant one beside the won- derful co-operative institutions they have. You see, I have been reading Cowden's "Trip to Co-operative Eu- rope" and building air caztles for our own Farmers Union. But we cannot take time to build air castles for the general manager has started down the devious way to the plant. First thing I know, I stumble--that is what happens wheu one builds in the air and does not keep an eye on the ground. We walk up on the truck loading platform and go in on the main floor where Paul Lam- bert is surveying the scene. Work- men are repairing a warped portion of the floor preparatory to laying the hardwood floor. Down to the basement first. The concrete is drying fast, but there are no supplies stored here in any amount yet. This floor is to be used for clean- ing and painting the oll drums--a job they are doing on the first floor at present. We walk over to look at the heating plant. The huge furnace burns crude oil, of course, and auto- matic devices feed it correctly and steadily, for this furnace provides heat for the building and heat for the big steam boiler. A busy little pump throbs away In a corner. It Is pump- ing air to "agitate" the oil In the big blending kettle above, which means practically the same thing as stirring It. Beside the pump is a whole bat- tery of valves and pipes--all num- bered. It is a bewildering ai'ray to the layman, but 1 understand that these valves are all connected with the big oil tanks and that the man who knows the numbers can direct the filling, emptying and transfer of the supplies In the compartments of the big tanks above. Up the stairway to the first floor again. Joe Nolan, manager of the oil department is pacing around and up and down. He has a thousand things to think about and he and the con- tractor hold frequtnt and brief con- sultations and away he p'oes between times. The workmen here that are not working on the flooring Job are cleaning and filling the drums with ell. They weigh them, affix the labels, and roll them outside to the carload- lag platform, where they trundle them Into the car. This carload of otl is bound for the Williston Farmers Un- Ion Oil Co., and it is nearly loaded. I am reminded, as I look at it, of bar- rels of dressed turkeys, and the days when my idea of co-operation was~ a carload of dressed turkeys, folks! I must tell you about the intelli- gent little machines that fill the drums. They record the amount that is going into the drums as well as how many gallons have been run through the meter. They are uncannily ac- curate. From here we go to the second floor and look over the huge oil tanks. i We walk around on fire escape like The number of swine on North Da-] stairs and walks, and peer into the tn kota farms is lower than at any t~mel big. kettles where the off is ha, g since 1910 when there were 332,000.I mixed to the proper specifications. The present estimate Is 296,000 head I Meters tell us how many gallons have compared to 434,000 in 1934 and 63g,-[ been drawn into the kettles and the 000 tw years ago, t ~pzres mounting to the thousands are imposing. The odor of warm oil per- meated tim place. Steam is run through the coiled pipes in the ket- tles that is the purpose of the fur- nace and boiler in the basement--and you'd think at first that the oil is boil- ing, though it doesn't appear to be hot. What really happens is that air is be- Ing forced through the oil to mix it thoroughly, and it is the busy pump in the basement that is tirelessly "stirring" the mixture in those ket- tles. The chemist comes aro[nd fre- quently to take samples, and he has a laboratory fireproof construction-- ou this floor. It never occurred to me begore, how many different kinds of work co-operatives demand. Vorkmen are welding ann rlveung the last of the big tanks, and we do not even look inside because the ln- tense white and blue light is blinding to the eyes. There are storage tanks close by, where the compounded oll Is betng stored from which the drums below are being filled. "Where does the oll come from?" I asked. "We get our Penn-Union oils from Pennsylva- nia, of course," Mr. Syftestad ex- plains, "while the mid-union otis come from Oklahoma. We get our gasoline and greases from the refineries, buy- ing them according to our own speci- fications." Products that bear the Farmers Union label have to be good. Cheap and poor products cause dis- satisfaction and the patron of a co- operative expects to get value re- ceived for what he pays. The big tanks where the unblended oils are stored, are housed in the north part of the building, and we walk in on top them from a small door. They remind me of the termi- nal elevator tanks I told you about. Mr. Syftestad tells me that these tanks had to be built of sheet steel first and the building erected around them afterward. They are lining the ceiling of the tank room with insula- tion to protect it from the heat of ~ne warm oil in the tanks. Next we go to the third floor where the offices are to be. There is a long hall where some of these days, there will be the offices of our business ac- tivities. To your rig:A as you come tip the stairs is an alcove that will be glassed in and lighted for displays. The main office of the Exchange will occupy the north part of the floor. All the busy typewriters and adding ma- chines in the Minnesota building will be clicking away up here instead. We go down the hall treading plaster and mortar underfoot. This is Ingerson's office--they indicate a mortar-strewn cubicle--and this ts my private office, says Nolan proudly, pointing out a similar room across from it. Farther down the hall, Mr. Syftestad points out his own office and the offices of the publishing company, and the large mimeograph and supply room. In the southeast corner where the sun comes flooding in, is the employees' rest room. Windows open out upon the roof which space may be used for the construction of additional offices, if the need requires. It is only a matter of weeks until the neat black letters will identify the offices of the man- agement and behind the frosted glass of every door the typewriters will tap steadily, and the desks and files will all be in place. Then we go back down the stairs, cautiously. We have to shout our conversation because the hammers are booming deafeningly in the part- ly constructed tanks. One more thing --we climb the fire-escape to the very top of the building and look down on the railroad tracks below, the work- men clearing the ground of broken bricks and debris, and others loading the last of the ')right green and yel- l(lw drums in the Willi3ton car. Stand- ing in high places seems to help one to look ahead and back and I think of you boys and girls out here in Dakota an([ wonder if you realize what a great and wonderful thing is yours in the Cooperative movement. You who are studying the co.operative lessons, remember that the co-operatives you read about are real, splendid, modern institutions. Come stand with me in the sun, high above the city that the wheat your farms grew, and the money you spent for the necessities of life, built. Your products built the dusty tanks and cleaners, the spin- ning wheels and shafts of your own terminal elevators; your patronage built this bright, proud new building to serve you, even as they also built this great city But the co-operatives are yours. They belong to the people who use them. You who are studying the machine age lessons know that machines and money when wedded together and be- longing to a few, can reduce you to poverty and despair. But when they belong to you who use them, they are your own and their benefits are yours, and you find in them freedom and pride and respectabilfly.

Leave It to PLmc Modern Science Makes It Easy to Escape Disfigurement; Literal Truth in the Statement, "They're Building Faces These Days." When a man sustains injuries to his face, tim result of an accident on tile read or at Iris jot), there is now no need for him to be const'mtly reminded of his misfortune. The skill of the plastic surgeon offers a way of escape from disfigurement. Ten months ago a twelve-year-old l;ncl;inglmmshire girl received ter- rible facial injuries ia an accident, but tod'ty she is well and l~appy, for modern surgery has given her, liter- ally, a new face. In another case a young society glrl, dragged unconscious from a hlazing car, was so severel~ burned about the face that to her nearest friends she was unrecognizable. Aft- er recuperation, she was treated by a plastic sm'geon. He began by mak- Ing her new eyelids, nostrils, and ears from grafts taken from her legs. Then he removed a portion of her scalp and fashioned a new pair of eyebrows; while to her back he went for a skln flap to build a new tipper lip. Finally, he filled In the gaps in her face with grafts from her arms. Today thls girl, as a result of twen- ty-five separate grafts, Is considered even better looking than before her accident. Besides offering a release from tile scars of industry and accident, plas- tic surgery Is taking Its place in tile treatment of disease. When Dr. Vll- ray Blair, a leading practitioner, was confronted with a case of cancer cen- tered In a man's Jaw he boldly re- moved the nmlignant tumor. His next step was to transplant flesh from the ,n'm's chest and restore his features in their entirety. A plaster cast of the patient's face, modeled before the original operation, was used as a guide. No damage is suffered by the parts of the body whence the raw material for such operations is taken. The chest, most prolific source of supply in a man, will yield a continual har- MANY USES FOR CROCHET SCARF By GRANDMOTHER CLARK Here is a very practical scarf that Is easy to make and costs so little.
