R. B. Woolfolk, Vice-President
American Fruit Growers: "With so
; many millions invested in the citrus
industry, anything that will do what
the Clearing House has set out to
accomplish is worthy of the support
of all. Encouraging progress is be-
ing made and the ultimate goal will
mean greater profits."
L. M. Rhodes, State Marketing
Commissioner: "We've got to quit
.fooling ourselves and get together
-.in a way that will mean a square
deal for all parties concerned, if
we're to save ourselves. If you feel
S,the Clearing House isn't what it
ought to be, get in and help make it
a success."
." Prof. Robert W. Hodgson, Uni-
'. versity of California: "California is
.'Ipeculiarly interested in the organi-
Szation of the Florida Clearing House
dthe West Coast is exceedingly
-D.see the plan succeed. By
eW shi'ent of uniform grades
of good quality fruit, control of the
movement to the markets and stim-
ulation of demand generally for the
Florida product, the Californians
believe it will then be possible for
the two states to handle their prob-
lems to greater mutual advantage."
p- Tampa Morning Tribune: "The
hearing House is here to stay-be
ssured of that. It will, by force of
imb.er and common sense upon
ich it is founded, survive these
ftV ks upon its basic principles;
itwill, sooner or later, put into

own light; and not only in his own
light, but in that of others, for the
neighbor is made to suffer the con-
sequences of others' acts in the cit-
rus industry, where all must sink or
swim together."
J. P. Holbrook, Orlando: "Grow-
ers who try to walk to market alone
saw off their own legs before they
start by refusing to join the Clear-
ing House. Such growers not only
rob themselves but starve their
Dade City Citrus Growers Asso-
ciation: "The Clearing House is en-
titled to the heartiest support of
every producer of citrus fruit and
every grower should sign up as a
member. With crops increasing rap-
idly in every producing section, not
only of United States but of the
world, growers must unite to secure
intelligent marketing of the crops
or disaster will certainly overtake
A. M. Pratt; Chase and Co.: "We
must sink our petty competitive
problems to their relative position
and keep ever before us our com-
mon problem of survival. We must
co-operate in order that we may in
a far greater sense compete for our
due proportion of the food dollar."
E. S. Briggs, manager-secretary
American Fruit and Vegetable Ship-
pers Ass'n.: "Regardless of any
statements to the contrary, I feel
that the Clearing House Association
has accomplished considerable good.
If they have done nothing more
than to bring the various factions
together, so they can look on each
other as human beings, they have
justified their existence. The seed
of distrust and suspicion is a para-

site which drains the life blood out
of all business.".
W. J. Ellsworth, Dade City: "Fel-
low growers, let's 'wake up.Y Let's
give the Clearing House the backing
necessary to enable it to achieve
one hundred per cent success."
Review of Reviews: "One great
mark of progress (by Florida citrus
growers) must benoted. This is the
recent establishment of the Florida
Citrus Growers Clearing House As-
sociation. The new association is
working for the advancement of the
Florida citrus industry as a whole,"
W. R. O'Neal, president of the
First National Bank & Trust Com-
pany, of Orlando: "Citrus culture is
and has been for the last 50 years
the backbone of South Florida's in-
come. As the population of the
United States increases and demand
for citrus grows in the same ratio,
the successor failure- of South~'Flor-
ida is bound up in the proper dis-
tribution of the product."
Dr. J. H. Therrell, president of
the Commercial Bank & Trust Com-
pany, and former president of the
Florida Bankers' Association, Ocala:
"There is no doubt as to the eco-
nomic soundness of the Clearing
House fundamentals. The grower
who lines up with the Clearing
House is certain, given an honest
and efficient management, to profit.
Capt. F. A. Bizzelle, DeLand
grower: "Hundreds of thousands of
dollars could be saved if growers
would learn to think and act co-
operatively. Once they get into the
Clearing House and learn to work
together, they -will master their
problems. They will not get what


they are entitled to until they do. I
always have made money from my
groves. I want to continue to make
money from them. That's why I
joined the Clearing House and am:
urging other growers to do the same
Peter O. Knight, Tampa: "It is
the most worth-while thing that has
ever been done for Florida."
Iliff Conger, Tavares, grower: "If
the gain by united effort among the
growers is 25 cents a box, 21 cents
of that is clear profit over what he
otherwise would have received,
after the Clearing House retain of
four cents a box is deducted. And
25 cents a box or 21 cents a box on-'
a 20-odd million box crop would be
putting approximately five million
dollars in the growers' pockets."
W. J. Rogers, cashier of the. Bank
.ofi Tavares: "One of our growers
last season shipped a car of frit-.
which netted him $4 a box---an ex-,
ceedingly good price. This grower-'
also had fruit of the same quality in
another car which left for the same
market the following day. On the
second car he netted 50 cents a box.
The market had 'cracked up' be-.
cause of a glut. Such gluts are not
likely to occur when the Clearing
House functions 100 per cent, but
it can't function 100 per cent until
there is a 100 per cent signup of
Arthur Brisbane: "Southern Cali-
fornia, part of Arizona, part of
Southern Texas and South Florida
contain all the land in America suit-
ed to citrus fruit growing... What
is now sometimes a glut will change
into.a scarcity." i

Governor Carlton

GOVERNOR Doyle E. Carlton:
"All interests in the industry
must co-operate with the Clear-
ing House. I am loath to think
our people are less intelligent
than our friends in California
who, by co-operation, find reward
for their labors. To give up the
Clearing House idea now means
to fail. It means going back to
cut-throat competition and waste-
ful methods. We find our salva-
tion in standing together."

President Hoover

message to Congress April
16th, said: "The pledged purpose
of such a federal farm board is
the reorganization of the market-
ing system on sounder and more
stable and more economic lines.
To do this the board will require
funds. . to authorize the crea-
tion and support of clearing
houses, especially for perishable
products, through which, under
producers' approval, co-operation
can be established with distribu-
tors and processors to more or-
derly marketing of commodities
and for the elimination of many
wastes in distribution."
