Service ending March I, 19415, increased by 13 pcr_ccnt. Tills increase hns been exceeded in only two years, 1920 and 1P44, llic economist, pointed out. The rise in per acre values during tlic World War II period i.s no\v as great as during World Wni I. Volume of sales dropped slightly during Hie early part of 1015. but this dctTcasc was more than offset by the increased volume during the last nin p months of the year. A substantial part of this Increased volume is due tn thc increase of re- sales after short periods of ownership, Mr. Lund explained. One on: of every seven farms was re-sok at hiRher prices after ownership of less than two years. While more than half the sales have been fo> cash, and this is true also in Arkansas, many of the sate.s have involved assumption of heavy indcb! cdncss. The (erminalion of the war lias k n.s yet had little moderating effec the farm land market, said 'Mr Hind. Shortly after the end o the war there was some innicatio: or a slackened demand for tarn products. Luler developments, how ever, have brought out new short ages with a definite tightening o the food situation. The recon amount of liquid funds in the hands j of farmers and a conlini'ini:short-j aye of goods lo purchase hav? ' tended to push land prices to inflationary levels. Much of the current high demand for farm products is likely to be temporary in nature and not likely to support continuing high land prices. Mr. Lund believes. Expeclations of lower farm product prices and lower income levels in the years ahead, along with a recollection of the collapse in land values that followed World War I may have a tempering effect on the demand for farms, according to the economist. Apparently these factors have llcm more than offset by the stronger inflationary forces and there is nn indication that average farm land prices have yet reached their peak.

Split seconds after it all happened, of course, more than a score of the fellows down at the electric company—linemen, servicemen, operators, engineers—were on the job and working fast and furious to get me back on my feet again. It's just like when the gas line on your automobile breaks in two. No matter how much gasoline you have in the tank, the.fhing'.just won't percolate 'til the damage has been repaired, And in a case (ike yesterday, it wasn't just one line, but three of 'cm burned out all at'the same time.
