REPORT ON PUMPING MATERIAL BY MR. SCOTT.
Part of the material has been disposed of. There were two tubes
for $35.00 cash received, and I will remit at this time to the treasur-
er for that amount. There is still quite a bit of material left to be
disposed of.
Is there any of this material that any grower would be interested
in? There are two pumps, one three-inch and one four-inch; some
amount of four-inch piping, and four-inch pipe settings; and five or
six three and one-half inch gate valves. They are still in the system
at the Mitchell Marsh. There is a Myer's eight-inch piston pump and
the small number of fittings that go with that. Unless someone ex-
pects to do some pumping, I do not think there would be any of this
material that would interest any growers, outside of the centrifugal
pump.
COMMENTS BY MR. NASH
The state made a definite appropriation for that pumping. If there
is anything left, I suppose it should be returned to the state.
Wouldn't it be better to use these pumps for construction work? Let
the association keep them and loan them out. They will go as a cred-
it to the pumping fund.
ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT LEWIS
I will take this opportunity to explain to the members of this Asso-
ciation what has been done in reference to our attempt to secure State
Aid for the cranberry industry in Wisconsin.
But before going into this subject I want to express the thanks of
the members to those who had charge of the banquet last evening.
We all attend these delightful affairs without realizing the amount
of work that is necessary to make them successful. Miss Smith had
charge of the arrangements and I think Miss Bamberg, Mrs. Whittle-
sey and Mr. Babcock of the Wood County Bank assisted her and we
want it known that their work is appreciated.
We have been working on our legislative program for several years.
I will review this matter for the benefit of those who are not familiar
with the steps taken two years ago. At that time a bill was intro-
duced in the legislature asking for an appropriation of $2000 annually,
to defray the expenses of the fieldman working among the growers
