Pitching Horseshoes BV BILLY ROSE Once every couple of weeks, start- Ing as of immediately, Dn going to list my likes and loathings for thissa and tliatta. And, since we're dandruff-deep in the age of labels —an age where everything from milk to malarkey Is graded and boxed, I have devised a system for rating the things thai come within my eyeshot and slingshot. What .system? Well, seeing as how this column is called "Hitching Horseshoes" in many of the papers that carry It, I'm going to use the same terms any horseshoe pitcher would: A ''ringer" if some- tiling goes klunk against the stake, a "leaner" when a thing is passable but nothing to write home or Congress about, and "miss" for Ihe dingdong dctd.

The situation today is that the cost of crop, producing machinery is on a comparatively low level Th,s ,s shown by the dash line in the chart above.
