He got around the difficulty very neatly by buying a considerable assortment of articles which struck his fancy, putting them in a huge basket at the entrance to the palace reception hall, and having his visitors select one of the items as a gift to him. In such manner be has found it quite unnecessary to stage periodic rummage sales. No More White Elephants! This plan could be modified so that all one's friends and relatives would sign an agreement entitling one to spend one's own money on oneself. After one had "surprised" oneself with a handsome gift from Brother George, said brother could be duly informed of what his present had been and forthwith 1 thanked.

At first, this proposal might seem a bit balmy, but there are advantages to be said for it. The average male, after having been browbeaten by store clerks, harassed by crowds, driven frantic by last-minute oversights on the gift list, would more than welcome an excuse to relax in a big way.

The specialists felt that this situation would cause corn prices to continue high until another crop was harvested, although, they did not with more smokers think that the price would continue to advance considerably as Importations from Argentine would tend to check it. It was thought that many Indiana farmers, because of the shortage of feed grains harvested this year, would likely use large iiuantities of wheat during the summer months of 1937 as a substitute for corn In their livestock rations, providing somewhere near the present price relationships are maintained. This situation coupled with the natural incentive to expand production, because of the relatively high price of wheat during 1936, has resulted in an increase in the acreage of winter wheat for 1937 over a year ago. The Indiana soybean production for 1936 as estimated on October 1 was 3.094,000 bushels, which is 49 per cent below the 1935 crop, but 60 every day per cent above the 1928-31 average.
