Editor Twentieth Century Farmer
Discusses Methods of Machin
CORN KINO ON SEES TESTING
That the present machinery of dis
tribution is unsatisfactory was held
by T. V. Sturgess, editor of the
Twentieth Century Farmer, lu a talk
before the Mid-West Retail Imple
ment Dealers' association, in session
at the Auditorium. He cited tho
three methods of distributing farm
implements today, through the retail
dealer, through the collective buying
organisations of the farmers, and
through direct mall order business.
"These methods are all in practice at
present," he said, "and each must recog
nise In tha other a legitimate competitor.
The one best able to satisfy the larger
number of customers the one that will
eventually win out and survive.
"The manufacturer must identify him
self with one or the other of these sys
tems. It is up to the manufacturer to
make up Ills mind which method best
serves his needs."

Touching on the sphere of the dealer,
Mr. Sturgoes said, "The dealer can render

It worth while.. The up-tolate dealer
can keep In close touch with the types
of machinery that are coming out and
knowa what kind or type is best adapted
