The association endorsed the work of

dorsed the I,uiebaugh bill, which seeks
to Impose a tax on interstate mail-order
business, and . decided to urge the 'sen
ators and representatives of Iowa and
Nebraska In congress to support the

the' manufacturer, dealer and consumer.
Tbey recommended to ail Implement men
that they become - members of the asso

They recommended that all dealers as
far as - possible - make their purchases
from such manufacturers only as recog
nise the local dealer as the logical and
most economic dealer.
They recommended also to the dealers
the advisability of taking either cash or
cote settlement at tne time of delivery.
T. F. Sturgess, editor of the Twentieth
Century Farmer, was called upon for
discussion of some of the topics, and
urged a cash basis for business as far as
possible aa the soundest economic prin
