The increases Were dtte in part to an* tiefffftttofi of the probable effect of general inflationary measures and in part to anticipation of the effect of production adjustments possible under the new farm Act. Inflation ordinarily give* farm* ers certain definite advantage*. Such measures, designed to raise price*, raise the prices of raw materials first and fanners are primarily producers ot raw materials.

Mr. Hearst pointed out that thousands of Iowa farmers were dependent on these reports issued through the press and on the radio tot information on prices. "It would be the poorest kind of economy," he declared. "Withdrawal ot this service would ineafi a step backwards and resnlt tn losses to many farmers in all sections of the tJfttted States, t cannot believe that the department is serious in its announcement that this work, which is one ot it*, roost worthwhile services, will be discontinued."

Other article* the ''• Note) reduces the relative size ot fixed charges, such as debts and inter'! est, that farmers must pay. But the present farm problem rests upon a fundamental lack of balance between the production of actual agricultural goods and the consumption ot those goods. American'farmers are producing too much wheat, pork, cotton, and other commodities under the conditions that now prevail. Normally farmers do gain by inflation but the presence now ot those surpluses prevents them from gaining the full measure of benefit. Inflation cannot makeover-production less wasteful. It cannot remedy the disparity between the buying power of farm products and the buying power of industrial goods. Doubling the number of dollars a farmer gets tor a hog doesn't enable the farmer ,to buy any more manufactured V goods if the price of those goods doubled too. Df the service to farmers.

"Virtually alt their operations In Iowa are based to some, degree on this information which has been furnished from Washington," The service covers market news on livestock, grain, cotton, dairy products, poultry, eggs, fruits, and vegetables with office* maintained in the principal mar* kets and distributing centers, About 300 people are employed and it is expected that only a few would be transferred to- other branches of government service.

Th« principal restrictive and permissive sign* have to do with speed limit*, one way streets, and parking privileges. Speed limit sign* Should be of the same design in every state, and should be of Biten form ot coloration that they will resemble nothing else. At present, there Is entirely too great diversity tn this respect, tt the sign 1* sufficiently characteristic" the driver recognizes it without fail, and doe* not need to read anything on it except the numerals fixing the limit. The figure* then can be large, and legible at a glance, other wording, establishing the official nature ot the sign, Should be small. It I* to be hoped that before long a system of three speeds will be accepted: low, middle and high; instead of the five now generally used, in which case distinctive symbols can be used on the signs, and no reading at all wilt be required. Signs Not Uniform One-way street signs are at present deplorable. They are not uniform,"are not conspicuous, and are usually badly placed. As a result, well-meaning drivers in unfamiliar parts of town are constantly entering one way streets adversely. Decided improvement is needed for these signs. Sign* regulating parking are also in a confusing condition, leading, to annoyance and dangerous situations. In most of the cities, the signs require reading on the part ot the driver, who must therefore stop, or slow down markedly below normal speed In order to find out whether he may or may not park in a given spot, and if so, for how long. Such behavior is obstructive to traffic, and sets up needless risks. All such signs should be of the type which require no reading after the system has been' noted, and which .are intelligible-from a dls- iWjMtethtfJWftem is not ^'^'^'^« y ffi^ t r3 1 ^|2g JB f;f*|fe . sMiJTsiiitiiJili .,—,-„-,„. Z^lT^fmmenB^ ly. Where is no excuse for the present situation' In our cities generally. Competent drivers merit the aids which will enable them to drive their best, and incompetent drivers should have their excuses removed. Directional signs are those which enable drivers to find their ways about in'strange localities. The new system of numbering and marking the principal routes has helped the distance driver greatly, but local signs are much in need of improvement. In some states, a driver wishing to know where a certain cross road will take him, must stop at the Intersection (the place of greatest. danger) and study a small blackboard on which there may be a number of names of places. From the position where he can read this board, be can not see the other board which tells him where the road lie is on leads to. In other states, Instead of a blackboard, there is a flock of arrows on a post, giving much the same difficulties, or worse. Every where in the United States the local directional signs are anachronistic, suited only to-the horse and wagon stage of transportation, >They are, actually a copald- er&ole source of danger to life »»4 property, J»lft<*Tfor PirectlonaJ Signs The, yjace for directional information pertaining to crass roads is 10ft yards or more in advance the ^intersection. & system nee4& to be worked out for the Ol the nes^S towns we lavol?&4 intelligible tb&» the assortments.

Where the direction ot the curve Is indicated, it is usually difficult to decipher, and in at least one state, many of the signs are actually misleading. The subject ot cautionary signs merits careful study, and it is probable that improvements and simplifications could be made which would make driving on the road much less dangerous tor ail drivers. At least, driving could be made easier, and easier driving conditions are safer.

With one exception, every local person returned from Chicago, whom we have questioned, reports that the fair is very much worth while, and affords an experience which can not be forgotten in a lifetime. And that leads us to the next subject: "How Best See the Fair?" To that question we answer: The Beacon City way offers a way providing lodging at ones choice of the Sheridan-Plaza Hotel or the Indian Head Country Club cottage camp; three meals daily, either one or two of which are served at the exposition grounds; daily admission to the fair; transportation from lodging quarters to fairgrounds and return; lectures upon how to get the most from the fair; free parking grounds; professional guides three days a week, .- . At the Indian Head Country Club quarters, one finds athletic grounds and courts, golf links, swimming pool and other recreational advantages with nominal fees additional, Beacon City offers a most practical, home-like way to get the most ol enjoyment, recreation and socially good times along with the fair, It is endorsed by state inspectors, newspapers and various organisa- tions for the high quality of its services, Importance of Reservations To date, Beacon City accommodations have been sold out well in advance of each weekly period, We ean not over-emphasize the importance of enrolling and reserving accommodations at least one week in advance, Please anticipate your trip at least that far, if possible, Otherwise we can not guarantee accommodations when you wish them, The Beacon City way has become SQ popular that the Indian Head cottage group of ISO bouses was inadequate, and the Sheridan-Plaaa Hotel was ad4e4 to give more freedom in options. There te already a hotel congestion in Chicago.
