(MEMBER UNITED PRE88)
RENO. OKLAHOMA SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8. 1923.
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., L>?c. 8
—The special session of tho Oklaho
ina legislature adjourned today to
reconvene on January 14. 1924. The
lawmakers met pursuant to the call
oi Governor Walton on October 11,
and have been In session ever since.
Joint committees of the house and
senate, and a house committee will
investigate the various stale depart-
ments during th© recesR. When the
solons meet in January, Governor
Trapp will deliver his maiden ad
dress, which will probably deal with
legislative reconstruction based on
the findings of the committees.
Governor Trapp thus far has refused
to go on record regarding the anti
Klan bill adopted by the legislature,
and there Is a possibility that he jvlll
veto the measure. The house joint
committee is composed of Disney,
Stovall, Eberhart, Horne and Single-
tary, with Speaker McBee as a mem-
ber ex-offlclo. Senators rarlock,
a Bobo, Cordell and McPherron com-
pose the Joint senate committee. The
ether house committee is composed
of Wlndle, Berry, Burleson, Davis
and Watson of Lincoln County. Just
g before adjournment resolutions were
adopted asking the removal of Secre-
tary Matlock of the state marketing
commission for neglect of duty.
JOIN WHEAT GROWERS

MONEY SAVING SALE
If every farmer m Canadian County
and throughout state, would join
the grain growers’ Association be
fore the next harvest he would be
able to obtain for a portion of his
wheat at least $1.00 per bushel at
threshing time and later on receive
not less than $1.25 to $1.50 per bush
My reason for saying this is that
the Association would be controlling
about the entire yield, and eompetet-
ivc buying would he done by expor*-
ers, while the mills would require an
enormous quanity to grind into flour
and feed stuffs. This at once est-
ablishes- lively competition. Mills
elevators and exporters will be forc-
ed to close or to pay the price.
Here comes in the law of supply
and demand. The Association has
the grain to supply those who de-
mand it and the farmer will be glad
to furnish it at a fair price that will
pay the farmer a profit above the
cost of production.
The above statements are borne
out with reference to the cotton
grower. Practically all the cotton
growers ate now members of the
Cotton Growers’ Association, incor-

and instead of cotton now selling In
the market as low as 7 to 10 cents
it has sold as high as 35 cents within
the past 30 days.
This plainly illustrates what or-
ganization means to the wheat grow-
ers. Illustrative again is the fruit
growers organization. Price their
products and you will realize what a
compact organization is doing for
these growers. Is It any wonder
that fruit orchards and lands adapted
to fruit sell from $250.00 to $1000.00
It is all up to the wheat farmer
whether he wishes to give away his
wheat at threshing time for a mere
trifle and let the speculator reap the
reward of his hard labor, or whether
he will become a member of the
Wheat Growers’ Association, and re-
ceive a price
It is now estimated that at this
date about CO per cent of wheat grow-
ers are members thus leaving about
40 per cent of fanners who yet are

fill orders and in a general way sup-
ply the demands. This dumping pro-
cess at thereshing time should cease
and all wheat should be turned over
to the Association, and then the
price will go up as the demands are
made for more grain and flour.
This in my judgement is the only
solution for the wheat farmer. Try
it and see ; and when you have all
joined the Association, you will then
have stabilized the price of your
lands, farms will sell and general
prosperity will also he the farmers'
