Transcript But it is also necessary that rural activities should be better directed through co-operation and organization, that unfair methods of competition should be eliminated and the conditions requisite for the just, orderly and economical marketing of farm products created. Lauds Co-operative Work We approve the Democratic administration for having emphatically directed attention for the first time to the essential interests of agriculture involved in farm marketing and finance, for creating the office of markets and rural organisation in connection with the Department of Agriculture, and for extending the co-operative machinery necessary for conveying information to farmers by means of demonstrations. We favor continued liberal provision, not only for the benefit of production, but also for the study and solution of problems of farm marketing and finance, and for the extension of existing agencies for improving country life.

We believe also that the adoption of similar principles should be urged and applied in the legislation of the states with regaid to labor within their borders; that through every possible agency the life and health of the people of the nation should be conserved; that the federal government should develop upon a systematic scale the means already begun under the present administration to assist laborers throughout the Union to seek 26
