DODGE ALGONA, IOWA He's learning to set the table for 200,000,000 expected guests! This boy may stay on the farm all right, but there'll be many changes. Sons don't farm like their fathers did in this period of rapid change. In his father's lifetime, for instance, bigger and better machinery has given him the power to farm more land in less time, with less labor. Electricity has taken over many of the backbreaking, time-consuming chores. New chemicals give him powerful weapons in the fight against insects and diseases. New fertilizers boost crop yields. ™' wh f n this y oun g ster is farming on his own, at least 200,000,000 Americans will be counting on the farmer for food and other essential products. But even with these 30,000,000 more mouths to feed, the fruitfulness of American farms will provide all we need and more. . Cooperatives help the farmer benefit from change; turn progress into profits. 6 The advantages of employing cooperatives to get jobs done will belong to the son as they have to the father. That will not change . . . and the future is brighter because of it.
