Approval on Clearing
House at Annual Meet
Further endorsement of the Clear-
ing House was made recently when
the members of the Elfers Citrus
.Growers Association, at the annual
meeting, endorsed the Clearing
House and urged all growers in the
State to join.
The resolution made reads as fol-
"WHEREAS there are many
problems facing the citrus growers
Sof Florida, and,
WHEREAS we believe that these
Problems can best be met by the
thorough organization of the grow-
; '"THEREFORE, BE IT RESbLV-
,-ED, that we endorse membership in
e Florida Citrus Growers Clearing
House Association, urge all of our
members to take membership in the
Association, and urge all other
growers of the State to do likewise.
"BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED
that a copy of these resolutions be
sent to the manager of the Florida
Citrus Growers Clearing House As-
sociation at Winter Haven, Fla."
U. S. Farm Board
Assembled and Is
Ready for Labors
HE federal farm board, created
by congress after years of dis-
pute, assembled July 15th and was
charged by President Hoover with
responsibility for a solution of
America's long-standing and vexati-
ous, agricultural problem.
The Chairman of the board, Alex-
ander H. Legge, a Chicago business
man, announced that "we are going
to work long and hard." Saying
there were no promises, he express-
ed hope that the board could organ-
ize agriculture to permit application
of its work to this year's crops.
In his prepared statement to the
board, the President defined its fun-
damental purpose as "to determine
the facts and to find solution to a
multitude of agricultural problems."
An eighth man is to be selected,
one to represent the vast wheat in-
dustry, but lack of unanimity among
the wheat growers and other factors
are delaying a selection.
The chairman intimated that the
representatives of several other
commodities besides wheat were
placing early claims for a share of
the $500,000,000 loan fund at the
board's disposal. Congress already
has made $150,000,000 of this fund
available, but Legge said its disposi-
tion awaited consideration.
To Study Authority *.-
The chairman hinted' th"e
was going to have to do some-s
ing to determine the full extent
its authority under the act recntO l
passed by congress, giving it admfi
istrative charge of a federal m
keting system. -"
Before an organization is settifa
advisory councils are to be chosei*
for each commodity. These councils .
will preside over stabilization' cokC-i
portions which are to be formed b ..'
the producers through their co-opeg .
active marketing organizations.
