And, frequently, pco- c who view a situation from a stance -come nearer sizing it p correctly than those who arc ibbing elbows with it. So, ithout getting all wrought up ccausc of their origin, let us onslder the following comments ) Southern agriculture, taken rcm an Industrial bulletin call- d "Another iantl of Promise," ecently published hi New Engnd: . . . Agriculture, the indus- ry for which the South Is pre- nincntly fitted, is in tho most, ackward condition. Southern economists are eener.illy agreed lat what the South needs most f all Is divcr.iificatlo:! of its griculture. II rreds to raise s own food. The total annual •ealth produced In eight South- astern slales in n recent year •as about seven billion dollars; nd of this more than one bil- on dollars wcnl outside to buy mported food. 'The farmer In the South, in he opinion of those studying ils problems on the spot, should taught to change his genera! arm operations gradually to- vard vertical 1 rarmlny, that o raise such field crops as wiV 1C used for human food dircct- y or for cattle feeding. Animals hould be raised to a far greal- er extent, especially dairy cat- and poultry. "The kind should grow sucl forage crops as enrich the sol and the cattle or other stock should be largely raised on pasture, supplemented b\ stlafe. The main crops shoult, be these raised for human foot or for feeding animals. Facet with problems of unusual dlffi cully, many of thrm impossible of immediate solution , th South Is fortunate In Its posses sion of the resources and climatic essentials for a hleher degree of future prosperity than can be anticipated for many '?ss favored life supporting areas. Judged by recent progress, it has native leaders familiar with conditions peculiar to iteelf, willing to devote the ncc- c:?ary time and energy, and capabb of the tasks for which they are now organizing?" that in the lost few years has made his home county one of the richest in tia state. But, instead of Ihe one big co\v, Rutherford county people milk 30- OCO regulation sl?e cows anil year before last obtained J2.250.000 cash from milk and cream ahne. And (hey obtained millions morr us a by-product, for the extensive hog raislnr; and poultry industry of Rutherford county is to a great extent made possible by the dairy industry, and Die par-acre yield o'f every crop is greatly enlarged by the increased fertility cf the soil that Is an all important by-product of cattle raising. Raising poultry ns a sideline to their oUier farm activities, some 40 members of the 4 Mile Community in Shelby county, Alabama, sell from $150 to Sl.OOO worth of ixnil- Iry products h week.
