Pe Ten THE MONROE MONITOR Monroe, Washington Friday, October 31, 1924 An Appeal TO Washington Voters You will be Called Upon at the November Election to Vote on Referendum Measure Number Sixteen Please remember dairying is one of the CHIEF INDUSTRIES of our state. The investment in cows, dairy farms, and dairy equipment is approximtely $100,000,000.00 and 48,000 of our 62,000 farmers are dependent wholly or in part upon the dairy cow for revenue. The in- vestment in creameries, condenseries, cheese factories and milk plants of various kinds approximates an additional $10,000,000.00, and these MILK PRODUCT PLANTS EMPLOY THOUSANDS. The annual value of dairy products in Washington is approximately $38,000,000.00. Against this consider that the total investment in the manufacture of of imitation butter in this state is less than a hundred thousand dollars, and fewer than ten persons are employed in its manufacture. i Which. One Will, You Support ? ! ..... Th immense oil interests, the big packers and the exploiters of the type of labor and living portrayed by the savage want you to vote against Referendum No. 16.
