Wiwcolvin Dainjry Associaon. 
effort being made to secure a large attendax~e, we would not 
exact the two hundred membership guaranty. I am, pleased 
to say that every promise made by that committee has been 
amply fulfilled. I want to say also that I have had the honor 
of presiding over a great many gatherings, nad never in all my 
experience have I presided over a body that gave such per- 
fect attention and showed such orderly conduct without any 
effort on the part of the presiding officer, as has this audience, 
which has greeted us here from day to day. They have shown 
intelligent appreciation, and I believe that you will agree with 
us, that you have had some excellent papers and discussions. 
The members of the Asociation who come from abroad, some- 
times known as the "Old Guard," are more than satisfied with 
what Platteville and the surrounding community has done, 
and we hope that you are reasonably well satisfied with the 
program which has been provided for you here, and that this 
community will see beneficial results from this meeting. 
Charles L Hpll, Rosendale. 
In these days of sharp competition in all lines of business, 
any man who achieves greatness is either a manufacturer, or 
a financier. 
I take it for granted, that to-day any man who calls him- 
self a dairyman, is a financier, in that he has learned to "water 
his stock," but are we manufacturers, looking for every way 
of cheapening production. 
I was talking recently with one of the leading dairy author- 
ities of America, and he said that if it had not been for the 
psge of the anti-oleo bill, that dairy products would, by this 
time, have been cheaper than ever before, and that prices 
would eontinue, even now, to average lower year after year.
