Excerpt from Annual, 1914

The year 1914 sees the Co-operative Wholesale Society in its fifty-first year. The event of its Jubilee was fittingly celebrated in September at the Quarterly Meetings of the Society. The Story of the C. W. S., by Mr. Redfern, gives a permanent record of its growth and achievements. As copies of the book have been widely distributed, it is easy of access to everyone who desires to read it. On pages 19-25 of the Annual we reprint the "Chronological Index to Principal Events," concerning not only those directly connected with the C. W. S., but also references to many contemporary facts having connection with the activities of the Society.

The main features in this volume will be noted as following on similar lines to previous issues. An addition to the usual views of C. W. S. premises has been made by the inclusion of photographs of the Directors and chief officials of the institution. Besides the statistics and general information, the reader will find six articles, the perusal of which will, no doubt, result in a considerable increase of knowledge of the subjects treated.

In the article upon "Banking and Finance," the author, Mr. T. Goodwin (Manager of the C. W. S. Bank), aims at explaining, "in such a way as will interest the general reader, the main principles on which banking is conducted, its relation to trade and commerce, and its influence on the general life and welfare of the community." The writer traverses a wide field touches upon the evolution of banking up to its modern form, and has much to say of interest concerning the C. W. S. and its financial operations.

In writing of Trade Unions, Mr. Barnes has the advantage of long and intimate experience and, within the limits of twenty-two pages, compresses a survey of the trade union movement for the past thirty years.

The determination of the Directors of the C. W. S. to get into direct touch with the sources of raw material in West Africa will lend an added interest to Mr. Himbury's article on "Nigeria." Many years' residence in the country enable the author to write with confidence upon the various aspects of the land and its inhabitants.
