REED ELECTED" FARM BUREAU HEAD (Continued from Page 1) bly ask how ,much they were worth; he has had to go to the store and re- spectfully ask how much he mst pay for the goods he had to buy. "That condition is unthinkable. It is a challenge to the American spirit of fair play. "Our state stands out in bold relief in co-operative marketing. But much is still to be done. If we perfect our co-operative marketing organizations, the farmer will be in the same posi- tion as the manufacturer. The manu- facturer would look upon an attempt by anyone else to set the price of his products as audacious. During the last few years, nonproductive agen- cies have governed the price of the farmers' products. "I am not a pessimist. I am a far- mer. I see these things from my own barn door. "I ,must have the co-operation of: ev- ery farm bureau member. We must work in harmony. There are sorcre powerful and insidious forces at work to break down co-operation among farmers. There are influences at work today thruout the country to tear down an agency that is the foun- dation of the farm bureau. I refer to the county agents. It is a fine time to go to the farmer and tell htm his taxes are too high. I know mine are high, awfully high. But I believe the t'armers will demand the office of coun- ty agent shall be maintained. "I want you to go home and serve notice on your county commissioners that when they try to move the county agent out of your county, they might as well try to move out the court- house. "Looking from my barn door, I can see where the county agent has been helpful to me. Looking across my line fences I can see where he has been helpful to my neighbor, to my county, and to the state. I pledge to the utmost my poor ability to carry on the work of the farm bureau." At the close of Mr. Reed's talk, the delegates rose spontaneously and pledged their united support to the new president of the Minnesota feder- ation. I WEDDINGS I Mullica-Gregg. (From Lake City Graphic). A wedding of interest to Lake City people, solemnized during the Christ- mas season, took place at the Presby- i terian manse on Monday evening, De- cember 26, 1921 at 7:00 o'clock, when Miss Minnie LaVaun Gregg of this i city became the bride of Mr. John :Mason Mullica of Detroit, Mich. Rev. J. G. Leitch officiated, using the im- pressive ring ceremony. The bride was becomingly attired in a mouse colored duvet de lathe traveling suit. Out-of-town guests were Mrs. Frank Reeve of Milbank, S. D., sister of the bride, Mrs. H. J. Ostlind and son Mas- ter Jack of Everett, Wash., sister of the groom, and Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Mullica of Ortonville, Minn., parents of the groom. Following a wedding trip to Chica- go and other eastern points the hap- py couple will be at home after Jan- uary 20 in the White Apartments, 624 Charlotte Ave., Detroit, Mich. The bride has grown to womanhood in this community, where she has a large circle of friends. She is a grad- uate nurse of St. Anthony Hospital at Carroll and has been most success- ful in her chosen profession. Mr. Mullica grew to manhood at Ortonville, Minn. He is a graduate of Stout Institute at Menomonie, Wis., and now holds the position of direc- tor of Industrial arts at Cass Techni- cal School, Detroit. We join the many friends of the couple in extending best wishes for a happy and prosperous journey thru life. --If a Independent representative does not see you, call 297 and phone your news items to us.

Nearly twice as much money avail- able now for improvement of county and town roads as is provided regular- ly for use of the trunk highway in Minnesota, Charles M. Babcock, state highway commissioner, this week urged early good roads conventions in all counties of the state at which county commissioners, town supervi- sors and the county highway engin- eers can agree on a definite program of co-operation to get the biggest pos- sible results for county-town road ex- penditures. Big Stone County can secure a com- plete system of good local roads in the shortest time and with Ieast ex- pense," said Mr. Babcock, "by adopt- ing a definite llan of systematic im- provement covering several years and then pooling town with county funds to carry it out under modern road- building methods, with the right equip- ment and so forth. Funds for local road purposes, exclu- sive of trunk highways---in Big Stone county last year were more than S10Go 000 and the importance of prompt ac- tion is obvious. Renville, Carlton and some other counties already are work- ing with success in this direction but I believe that good roads conventions in these counties will accomplish much as in all counties. The plan will end patchwork road development and the public will gain in every way. "County and town road authorities and the engineers can consider at these meetings the needs on every county and town road and make pro- vision for them in the longer term pro- gram. Township lines should be ig- nored, just as the state disrega<ls county lines on trunk route plans. Counties will assist the towns as the state deparbment advises and works! with the counties on state aid and oth- er important undertakings. The town: funds may be pooled with those of the county and used under the direc- tion of the engineer. Heavier machin- ery and better methods can be employ- ed generally to get bigger results at less cost, and farmers can be given more jobs than in the past. "Public road officials are all work- ing to get the best results now, and. I am confident, will co-operate o adopt the new plan and make it yield maximum results. The fault has been with the old-time methods, not with i the efforts of our present local road authorities." 1 . 1 John H. Mullen, deputy commssmn- WANT ADS er and chief highway engineer, sup-i ported the co-operation proposal with official figures showing the funds now provided for road work in Minnesot Current funds last year in Minne- soft totalled $18,790,000 for local roads and $8,690,000 for state trunk higiways, Mr. Mullen said, and the greater local funds prove that the so- called Babcock plan is mainly a far- mers' road plan. Taxes brought $10,843.682 of coun- ty and $6,862,560 of township, funds and $2,084,000 of state aid fro" local rvad purposes, besides $1,308,794 of city and village street and road funds outside of St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth Regular state trunk funds were made up of $5,750,000 of motor ve- hicle taxes and $2,840,000 of federal aid. Considerable money was used last year, but laws under which it was voted are no longer in effect, and if included the trunk fund total still would be smaller than that available for the local roads. The local road mileage is the greater, it was ex- plained, but that is fairly offset by the higher cost of improvements and main- tenance necessary on the trunk sys- tem. With the liberal funds provided, Mr. Mullen added, county engineers will carry out the programs agreed upon by county commissioners and town supervisors in systematic plans and greater efficiency and economy will follow to give the maximum of good results. ADDITIONAL CLINTON NEWS Extensive repairs have been made in the Clinton school building (luring va- cation. The ventilator which was torn off in the recent wind storm was replaced and the damage caused to the lastering in the north class room repaired.

She is a grad- uate nurse of St. Anthony Hospital at Carroll and has been most success- ful in her chosen profession. Mr. Mullica grew to manhood at Ortonville, Minn. He is a graduate of Stout Institute at Menomonie, Wis., and now holds the position of direc- tor of Industrial arts at Cass Techni- cal School, Detroit. We join the many friends of the couple in extending best wishes for a happy and prosperous journey thru life. --If a Independent representative does not see you, call 297 and phone your news items to us.

Nearly twice as much money avail- able now for improvement of county and town roads as is provided regular- ly for use of the trunk highway in Minnesota, Charles M. Babcock, state highway commissioner, this week urged early good roads conventions in all counties of the state at which county commissioners, town supervi- sors and the county highway engin- eers can agree on a definite program of co-operation to get the biggest pos- sible results for county-town road ex- penditures. Big Stone County can secure a com- plete system of good local roads in the shortest time and with Ieast ex- pense," said Mr. Babcock, "by adopt- ing a definite llan of systematic im- provement covering several years and then pooling town with county funds to carry it out under modern road- building methods, with the right equip- ment and so forth. Funds for local road purposes, exclu- sive of trunk highways---in Big Stone county last year were more than S10Go 000 and the importance of prompt ac- tion is obvious. Renville, Carlton and some other counties already are work- ing with success in this direction but I believe that good roads conventions in these counties will accomplish much as in all counties. The plan will end patchwork road development and the public will gain in every way. "County and town road authorities and the engineers can consider at these meetings the needs on every county and town road and make pro- vision for them in the longer term pro- gram. Township lines should be ig- nored, just as the state disrega<ls county lines on trunk route plans. Counties will assist the towns as the state deparbment advises and works! with the counties on state aid and oth- er important undertakings. The town: funds may be pooled with those of the county and used under the direc- tion of the engineer. Heavier machin- ery and better methods can be employ- ed generally to get bigger results at less cost, and farmers can be given more jobs than in the past. "Public road officials are all work- ing to get the best results now, and. I am confident, will co-operate o adopt the new plan and make it yield maximum results. The fault has been with the old-time methods, not with i the efforts of our present local road authorities." 1 . 1 John H. Mullen, deputy commssmn- WANT ADS er and chief highway engineer, sup-i ported the co-operation proposal with official figures showing the funds now provided for road work in Minnesot Current funds last year in Minne- soft totalled $18,790,000 for local roads and $8,690,000 for state trunk higiways, Mr. Mullen said, and the greater local funds prove that the so- called Babcock plan is mainly a far- mers' road plan. Taxes brought $10,843.682 of coun- ty and $6,862,560 of township, funds and $2,084,000 of state aid fro" local rvad purposes, besides $1,308,794 of city and village street and road funds outside of St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth Regular state trunk funds were made up of $5,750,000 of motor ve- hicle taxes and $2,840,000 of federal aid. Considerable money was used last year, but laws under which it was voted are no longer in effect, and if included the trunk fund total still would be smaller than that available for the local roads. The local road mileage is the greater, it was ex- plained, but that is fairly offset by the higher cost of improvements and main- tenance necessary on the trunk sys- tem. With the liberal funds provided, Mr. Mullen added, county engineers will carry out the programs agreed upon by county commissioners and town supervisors in systematic plans and greater efficiency and economy will follow to give the maximum of good results. ADDITIONAL CLINTON NEWS Extensive repairs have been made in the Clinton school building (luring va- cation.

REED ELECTED" FARM BUREAU HEAD (Continued from Page 1) bly ask how ,much they were worth; he has had to go to the store and re- spectfully ask how much he mst pay for the goods he had to buy. "That condition is unthinkable. It is a challenge to the American spirit of fair play. "Our state stands out in bold relief in co-operative marketing. But much is still to be done. If we perfect our co-operative marketing organizations, the farmer will be in the same posi- tion as the manufacturer. The manu- facturer would look upon an attempt by anyone else to set the price of his products as audacious. During the last few years, nonproductive agen- cies have governed the price of the farmers' products. "I am not a pessimist. I am a far- mer. I see these things from my own barn door. "I ,must have the co-operation of: ev- ery farm bureau member. We must work in harmony. There are sorcre powerful and insidious forces at work to break down co-operation among farmers. There are influences at work today thruout the country to tear down an agency that is the foun- dation of the farm bureau. I refer to the county agents. It is a fine time to go to the farmer and tell htm his taxes are too high. I know mine are high, awfully high. But I believe the t'armers will demand the office of coun- ty agent shall be maintained. "I want you to go home and serve notice on your county commissioners that when they try to move the county agent out of your county, they might as well try to move out the court- house. "Looking from my barn door, I can see where the county agent has been helpful to me. Looking across my line fences I can see where he has been helpful to my neighbor, to my county, and to the state. I pledge to the utmost my poor ability to carry on the work of the farm bureau." At the close of Mr. Reed's talk, the delegates rose spontaneously and pledged their united support to the new president of the Minnesota feder- ation. I WEDDINGS I Mullica-Gregg. (From Lake City Graphic). A wedding of interest to Lake City people, solemnized during the Christ- mas season, took place at the Presby- i terian manse on Monday evening, De- cember 26, 1921 at 7:00 o'clock, when Miss Minnie LaVaun Gregg of this i city became the bride of Mr. John :Mason Mullica of Detroit, Mich. Rev. J. G. Leitch officiated, using the im- pressive ring ceremony. The bride was becomingly attired in a mouse colored duvet de lathe traveling suit. Out-of-town guests were Mrs. Frank Reeve of Milbank, S. D., sister of the bride, Mrs. H. J. Ostlind and son Mas- ter Jack of Everett, Wash., sister of the groom, and Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Mullica of Ortonville, Minn., parents of the groom. Following a wedding trip to Chica- go and other eastern points the hap- py couple will be at home after Jan- uary 20 in the White Apartments, 624 Charlotte Ave., Detroit, Mich. The bride has grown to womanhood in this community, where she has a large circle of friends. She is a grad- uate nurse of St. Anthony Hospital at Carroll and has been most success- ful in her chosen profession. Mr. Mullica grew to manhood at Ortonville, Minn. He is a graduate of Stout Institute at Menomonie, Wis., and now holds the position of direc- tor of Industrial arts at Cass Techni- cal School, Detroit. We join the many friends of the couple in extending best wishes for a happy and prosperous journey thru life. --If a Independent representative does not see you, call 297 and phone your news items to us.

Nearly twice as much money avail- able now for improvement of county and town roads as is provided regular- ly for use of the trunk highway in Minnesota, Charles M. Babcock, state highway commissioner, this week urged early good roads conventions in all counties of the state at which county commissioners, town supervi- sors and the county highway engin- eers can agree on a definite program of co-operation to get the biggest pos- sible results for county-town road ex- penditures. Big Stone County can secure a com- plete system of good local roads in the shortest time and with Ieast ex- pense," said Mr. Babcock, "by adopt- ing a definite llan of systematic im- provement covering several years and then pooling town with county funds to carry it out under modern road- building methods, with the right equip- ment and so forth. Funds for local road purposes, exclu- sive of trunk highways---in Big Stone county last year were more than S10Go 000 and the importance of prompt ac- tion is obvious. Renville, Carlton and some other counties already are work- ing with success in this direction but I believe that good roads conventions in these counties will accomplish much as in all counties. The plan will end patchwork road development and the public will gain in every way. "County and town road authorities and the engineers can consider at these meetings the needs on every county and town road and make pro- vision for them in the longer term pro- gram. Township lines should be ig- nored, just as the state disrega<ls county lines on trunk route plans. Counties will assist the towns as the state deparbment advises and works! with the counties on state aid and oth- er important undertakings. The town: funds may be pooled with those of the county and used under the direc- tion of the engineer. Heavier machin- ery and better methods can be employ- ed generally to get bigger results at less cost, and farmers can be given more jobs than in the past. "Public road officials are all work- ing to get the best results now, and. I am confident, will co-operate o adopt the new plan and make it yield maximum results. The fault has been with the old-time methods, not with i the efforts of our present local road authorities." 1 . 1 John H. Mullen, deputy commssmn- WANT ADS er and chief highway engineer, sup-i ported the co-operation proposal with official figures showing the funds now provided for road work in Minnesot Current funds last year in Minne- soft totalled $18,790,000 for local roads and $8,690,000 for state trunk higiways, Mr. Mullen said, and the greater local funds prove that the so- called Babcock plan is mainly a far- mers' road plan. Taxes brought $10,843.682 of coun- ty and $6,862,560 of township, funds and $2,084,000 of state aid fro" local rvad purposes, besides $1,308,794 of city and village street and road funds outside of St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth Regular state trunk funds were made up of $5,750,000 of motor ve- hicle taxes and $2,840,000 of federal aid. Considerable money was used last year, but laws under which it was voted are no longer in effect, and if included the trunk fund total still would be smaller than that available for the local roads. The local road mileage is the greater, it was ex- plained, but that is fairly offset by the higher cost of improvements and main- tenance necessary on the trunk sys- tem. With the liberal funds provided, Mr. Mullen added, county engineers will carry out the programs agreed upon by county commissioners and town supervisors in systematic plans and greater efficiency and economy will follow to give the maximum of good results. ADDITIONAL CLINTON NEWS Extensive repairs have been made in the Clinton school building (luring va- cation.
