_ _ ; C*''0- ,-t. ' -4 f;_' ', 'l-essly impractical organization. Wisconsin should have the begefits of the sound marketing organization. It should be spared the costs (nd disappointments and, tragedy of unsoutd organization. The Wisconsin Cheese Producers' Federation,. patterned after the successful enterprises of other regions is of the sound type. Its benefits through - grading products and bringing to the farmer a premium for quality, cannot be realized by the people of Wisconsin, however, until it grows from infancy to manhood. Without full-grown sound marketing organizations of this sort -for each important dairy product such as American cheese, butter, foreign cheese, etc., there is no practical means of insuring that farm products will yield the farmer a return in proportion to that which consumers pay for them. Grading and standardizing farm products combined with a program of paying farmers according to quality and bringing them a maximum part of what consumers now pay is a service that is peculiarly uncommon except where efficient powerful co-operative federations of farmers' successful local co-operative enterprises have been established. WHAT DO THE LACK OF THESE ENTERPRISES MEAN TO WISCONSIN?

To promote prosperity for all, understand what means prosperity to you. Boost the other chaps purchasing power and he can't help but boost yours.
