Ark., Aug. 25. fjiy-Farmers are being caught In * "price squeeze," some 300 per- lons at an Arkansas Conservation Conference were told today. The three-day -conference ended at noon. Dr. John H. White, head of the Rural Economics Department of the University of Arkansas college of agriculture, s-'d the "SCIUOMC'" resulted from declining prices on products farmers hnve to buy contrasted' to stable or more slowly falling prices cf products they sell He painted a brighter picture Arkansas' Farmers' futures, however, because of: 1. An'upward I rend for a number of years in population, and 2. Increased tproductlvity p e worker as a result of Increase! technological developments. "Greater population," he said "wlU provide additiona' markets for farm products. Likewise in creased productivity of svorkmei should make it possible for them lo utilize more goods of all kinds. Dr. H. B. James, North Carolina State College rural econotnidst. told Ihe group (hat the farmer has two approaches to Uicreasinr returns from his farming operations. One, lie said, is through better organization, and the other Is by wise use of improved production practices. Dr. R. 3. Doll of Kansas Slate College said that farmers.must decide whether they want high price support or freedom of action. He said that they are demanding both • nd that these two demands are Inconsistent. "Opportunity Land." which appears on Arkansas automobile license plates is a striking slogan, Chester C. Davis, president of the St. Louis Federal Land Bank, told the conference last night. But He challenged Arkansas farmers' 'to lead the way In makine Arkansas a better place In which to 'ivc." "Then and only then," he said, "can the words 'Opportunity Land truly be meaningful and not merely battered letters on a license plate.' The noted agricultural authority told the delegates that "alter close study of Arka:i*ns resources and development programs. I convinced Arkansas is a land opportunity. 1 ' "However, we might as well be realistic about it," he continued. "The appearance of some of the cars that carry this slogan suggests that we haven't yet made the most of our opportunities in terms of production and Income for many of our people." debudneu outaUndtnz.
