Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: A bounteous meal was served and after the cigars were passed S. W. Strong, the toastmaster, rapped for order and said: There are many elements in the grain business and all are afflicted with divers ailments. Some dealers have a disease called "fightus" and some have fits. These occasions are pleasant and productive of good results. I am delighted to be here, to see old and make new acquaintances. I have a fine pedigree as I was born in Indiana. George Ade said, "The brighter men are the sooner they leave Indiana." We have bright men on the program, one of whom is Lee G. Metcalf, and I am pleased to introduce him as the speaker on "Co-operation in the Grain Trade." Mr. Metcalf: Sec. Strong mentioned the brightest period of his life when speaking of his leaving Indiana. He left Indiana when he was 2 yrs. old. The spirit of co-operation is as old as the universe. It has come down to us thru tribal regimes and is now manifested by our powerful government of today. This spirit must be the prime thing in business and this meeting is an exponent of that spirit. I trust, in fact. that this spirit of cooperation may be so enthusiastic as to savor of fraternalism. I have always stood for ass'n work. There are too many hazards in the grain business for me to get along without the co-operation and friendship of my brother dealer. F.ver_vhody shud work for the welfare of all and in doing this they will double the value of elevator property. Co-operation means that we keep within the confines of honesty and keep in mind the idea of service to our fellowman. Usefulness is the standard of the world. Churches wud be no good without this quality. All ass'ns shud have for their object "Usefulness." more
