moro generally on a misunderstanding
of their purposes, of what should bo
expected of such a system.
The banker, as much as any man, la
to blamo for tlio present misconcep
tion. Ho found Federal Reserve
Banks a ready scapegoat to blamo for
no matter what happened. If It
Boomed deslrablo to refuso or call a
loan It was easy to say that the Fed
eral Roscrvo Bank wished It, although
It should have been refused becauso
contrary to good banking practice.
Most of all was the system blamed
for thu fact that violent Inflation
which hundreds of business mon and
hankers hoped might ho continued
forever was Anally checked by putting
up Federal Reserve Interest rates.
There wito those who blamed tho
system tor not hnv'ng put up the ratn
soon enough and others who blamed
It because it put up tho rate at all.
Tho penalty for thus blaming every
business mishap on this valuable sys
tem may bo tho hns of Its much
needed benefits. If .o wish to savo

from tlio falo of its two predecessors
wo must mako known to America, to
Its rank and flic, the splendid useful
ness of those institutions.
Wo must admit at tho outset that
in their administration mistakes havo
been made, that governors of Fed
eral Reserve Banks and members o!
tho Federal Resorvo Board are human
beings, and In tho administration of
the affairs of any institution by
human beings mistakes will bo made,

A pamphlet and questionnaire on cooperative-
farm marketing recently Is
sued by tho Stato Bank Division,
American Bankers Association, has
brought out valuable Information oa
tho subject from bankers, farmers and
stato agricultural departments. It is
being used ns a campaign document In
tho organization of co-operative mar
keting associations In various sections
of the country, farmers having adopt
ed Its slogan: "Put Agriculture on a
Par with Other Big Business." I
The movement on the part of farm
ers toward co-operative marketing xs
a cure for their present rconomlc
plight Is nation-wide. There has been
notable progress in tho development
of such associations, somo consplcu
ously successful ones being In opera
Hon at tho present time. There havo
also been some disastrous failures
among these ventures In co-operatlw
marketing, which Is tho Inevitable ac
companiment of tho progress of any
movement. Tho "Banker -Farmer,"
published by the American Bankers
Association, says: '
"Causo and effect aro operative In
co-operatlvo marketing as truly as
thoy are In every other business enter
prise An association will not neces
sarily succeed or fall merely becauso
it Is a co-operative association, but be
causo It couforms to or transgresses
from tho underlying principles of suc
cessful business operation. Tho movi
ment Itself Is of great national Import
and tho bankers of tho country can
materially aid or retard lis progress.
Tho responsibility of leadership In
rural conitaunities rests very largely
with tho country hanker. It Is his
duty to bo informed on all matters re
lating to tho farmers' woll being."
Modern conditions are such that ag
riculture cannot bo successful by In
dividual effort. To regain Its position
as a basic industry, and as a foroo in
national affairs, agriculture naiat de
pend upon organization and co-operation
for economic production, for eco
nomic marketing and for tho estab
lishment of its proper relationship In
community l'fe. - - Howard Leonard,
President, Illinois Agricultural Association.
