Adams county agent, reports. Prices of cotton cottonseed, livestock, and livestock products rose sharply in 1942, and moderate increases are expected in 1942. In addition he said, prices of fruits and vegetables probably will a l so increase. According to Ross Mauney of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, the principal reasons for more favorable prices and income are(1) Expanded employment and income n defense industries, (2) Lend-Lease program, ( 3) Congressional action to •elate prices to parity principles, (4) btrong speculation and storage demands, and (5) Reduced competition rom imported commodities After a long period o£ comnaralive- y low far mprices, farmers welcome he higher prices and income, the Ex- KROGER tension economist in land-use planning said. And, even though production costs advance during 1942, Mauney said farmers will have a slightly greater purchasing power than they nave had in recent^years. The Food-for-Victory campaign calls lor a considerable increase in the production of livestock, livestock products, oats, and soybeans. The University of Arkansas College of Agriculture recommends that the increase be obtained largely through better management and better feeding , ln . v .! ew ° f , lhe College's recommendation, Mauney said Farmers should be reluctant to assume the risk involved in borrowing large sums to increase materially their capital goods Rather, he said, they should safeguard their position against rapidly falling prices, whic hmay follow the close of the war, by using caution in assuming heavy mortgage indebtedness for purchase of land, machinery equipment, and breeding stock.
