«•»* ^ «^rw «— T IS WORLD tff JOHN t. FLtNN. j IflBW YORK, June 6.—Financial drift** fit* looking eagerly toward the lMn. There Is no doubt that nothing ald be snore encouraging- than the -tatfook ft»r a Rood year on the farm. 'Jtttea Is being -written about this, yet ibtbiftg could Illustrate the danger of '4et>ending too much on farm forecast Bgttres than the explanation now giv- tt» by the farm board for fixing the IKflce of wheat at concentration points •too high. The explanation is that the board was misled by its statisticians Ktid experts as to the size of the crop. The unfavorable element in the slt- ttition now Is that all signs point to- Krafd a rising tide of production. This Is due in great measure to the great development In farm machinery all ttver the world. While thta is reducing production costs it is more or less neutralizing Its benefits by increasing production out of all bounds. Along with development of machine- try goes new methods of extracting fcitrogen from the air, coal and gas Making for cheaper fertilizer and at the same time vast areas, the scene 6f vera low cost from farm production, are being brought Into use east tit the Rocky mountains from Mexico to Canada- Appeals are made to farmers to re- 1 fluce acreage. Yet every sign points ( toward Increasing acreage and in-1 creasing the production per acre. Upon j this basis it is difficult to forecast > anything less than a huge world-wide ; " crop which is bound to keep our do- j tnestic farm prices In a state of trpu-1 trie. I Last year's crop was 100,000,000 bushels of wheat smaller than 1928, vet the carry-over by the farm board has not been reduced. Canada had a abort crop last year and it is usual to •ee great efforts toward an increase i of crop there this year. For those, therefore, who look for farm relief in shorter crops at higher prices, there Is no much ahead. It leaves the problem pretty much where it was, namely the improvement in marketing co^i- ditions to give the farmer a larger •hare in the crop price and secondly *n increase in uses to which farm products may be put. The long term prospect is good, but the near term prospect is not nearly so hopeful. (Copyright, 1930. by U. P. C. News Service, Inc.)

RERUN'S! DIGGERS THOUGHT TO HAVE POUND OLD RELIC MILAN, June 6.—Digging for the foundation of the new Stock Exchange, important remains of an ancient Roman theatre came to light here. The existence of the old amphitheatre had been suspected for a long time, but the archeological fragments recently excavated show that the theatre must have been of considerable distensions. Local archaeologists attribute the theatre to early imperial times, and PERSONAL To Fountain Pen Users It your pocket pen convertible for Desk Set use? Bring it in and let us tell you.
