The fall-sown winter wheat acre- KBC had previously been reported kt 61.370,000 acres for a crop ot p64.808.000 bushels at average vields. Thus the total wheat. acreage kvoiild be 81.S10.000 acres compared f;Uth 77.950,000 seeded for the 1918 Kfop and fiO.003.000 for the Lcn- vcar average. The government's goal was 71,500,000 acres.

Bachelorhood Is becoming In-1 creasingly popular with American men. According to figures o[ the National Institute (or Human He- lalions ol New York there are 10 to 12 per cent more bachelors in the United States than there were five years ago. Dr. James P Bender, founder ot the Institute, suggests the reason for this Is that the timid type of man is frightened by the dominant type of career woman, determined to make her own way in a man's world. Well, maybe—but what about the dominant type of little woman in the home? It should be enough to frtghtcr any unattached man to catch sue! candid pllmpsrs of the domesticated male as these: young men In the backyards '-i small coltaRcs dutifully hanghv Dapping diapers in neat rows 01 clothes lines. Young husband in the fivc-to-si o'clock grocery line, checking thei lists to make -sure they are not onl for the bringing.home the bacon for break I fast, but the meat [or the evcnin leal us u'ell. Grandpa Would Be Amaied Young men toting laundry bags tuUed with dirty clothes Into wash-!t-yoursclf stations, shovtn he clothes into automatic washers and, while they wait, reading the comic Mrtp versions ol the heu- jcckeil hu.vband. Young men pushing baby car- •la^es. And young men hard at work In their front yards, because Hie competition between housewives now includes the yard as well BS the house. When wives compete with their peonies as well as their s. husbands gel ihelr outdoor exercise gardening Instead of play- ins golf. And wliat happens when the eligible bachelor Is invited to dinner at the home of a married friend? Well, It's not unusual lor the Ims- 'band to don a big apron and proceed to cook the meal on an out-of- doors grill, while his chormlng wife relaxes in a lawn chair. N'o wom'er the bachelors rrc bc- co:,iin« caiiey. Those urcn't very enticing pictures of marriage to :i man who Is still life own bass.
