Co-op Ideas Bega
Now Spread Thr(
By BLANCHE BERGER
EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the first in a
series o articles about co-operatives in
general, and those on the Michigan
campus in particular.
The term co-operative as it is
generally accepted today means a
voluntary union of individuals work-
ing together apart from government
in unified production, distribution
and purchase for the benefit of all.
Cooperatives themselves are busi-
ness enterprises owned and operated
by the people they serve.
England is the classic home and
birthplace of co-operatives as a
practical movement. On April 5,
1844, at Toad Lane in Rochdale,
twenty-eight weavers started the
first successful consumers co-oper-
ative store. It was at a time when
the entire community was out of
work, and had almost no means af
making a decent living. These weav-
ers saved a few shillings and invest-
ed in a bag of flour which was dis-
tributed at cost price.
For the first year the store made
little or no profit, but thereafter
forged ahead. By 1856 the pio-
neers had branched out to include
the selling of clothing, meat and
bread is well as groceries. Later
the continued success of this be-
ginning in Rochdale stimulated
