I urn one of hiilf the people lu America who depend directly or iixlercctly on agriculture' for subsistence. My Interests nrc wholcly agricultural. As a furmer In n farming community I see only one course for farmers lo pursue: 'Hold today's ceilings, guard against in- flalon, help finance the war, Improve their own credit and cash postloii .and stand , ready when pence comes to keep the' home wheels turning, men working, nt good wages and farm markets booming. "I/inking Ahead" • Higher prices lor fnrm, products after the war clearly .will benefit both labor and Industry. Prosperity on the farm menus more money spent tor what workmen make In the factories of industry. But in 1042 factory workers earned 70 per cent more than farm hands. Average income per person on the farm .'wiis $308 last year while Income per person not on the farm wns more thol) 2 1-2 limes as Inrgc. Total fnnn Income lust year was 10.2 billon dollars;' liarilly 8.8 bil- lon In 1019, the farmers' liest, year In World War One. Food prices nrc not much higher now than then, and there nre fewer farmers now. Growing more food p«r farm worker supports their elai:n ,'o better Income. Todny'H farm-price fixtures nrc undoubtedly fnulty in their relation lo food production, and factory wages. But the nation's enllrc war-time price structure Is based on today's farm prices, and holst- ng- them would be a calamity. An act of long-rang wisdom would be .to form n committee now, com- I posed of representatives from labor, agriculture and industry, to work out n definite plnn whereby fnrmers cnn depend on Income Cfiuallty with industrial workers after the war.
