A 28 state poll conducted by tlie department also shows that almost every farmer expects an eventual depression, but doesn't look for one immediately after the war ends. Here are some more statistics compiled by (he department's' experts. A majority of the farmers are said to want a government price control and support for at least two years after the war. and more than 50 per cent think that veterans who were farm-experienced before they' enlisted ' "will be' able to return io their home communities to make a living, money."

If the arrangements are completed, it will end a two-year effort by this government (o get relief supplies to American prisoners in Japanese bands. The Japanese vessel would pick up the supplies at Nakhodka, a Siberian port east of Vladivostok. About 1500 tons of standard food packages, medicine ana clothing were sent to Vladivostok last year by the American Red Cross in anticipation that a plan for their distribution to American prisoners could be worked out. The 1500 Ions is about one month's supply.
