II. Brownlce, Iowa State College economist. Regardless of which side is taken in there disputes, Brownlce points out thnt the future prosperity of agriculture is closely tied up with the future prosperity of business and labor. The farmers can't have prosperity alone. The number of people working and the wages they draw will determine the future home demand for farm products. Brownlce says this Is essentially snvg such reductions in famTiwZI what is meant by the "farmers stake WQU , d be B i mogt entirely due to oil In full employment.

He says estimate tnidil by tho United States Department «'| Agriculture show that for the prognail of full employment tho total nnmm net income' of farmers in 1950 could f be slightly In excess of nine blli|«,;| dollars. However, with a serious dcpretH(,!L such as the one In the early igjm total net form income would drop about three billion dollars or only M third as much. Even a less levcn depression, with any^ seven million at. | employed, would leave farm Income «l| about 6tt billion dollars. Btwifetl out thnt while full employment may not cure nil of agriculture's problems, the solution to those problems will be extremely more difficult If there ore thousands of industrial workers without jobs. High farm prices during the war resulted from unusual military demand plus a high level of domestic demand, Brownlce says. This high level of domestic demand resulted from the fact that the majority of people were working and were receiving good wages. With military demands for food and other agricultural products rapidly diminishing, farm prices in the future must depend largely upon domestic demand alone. Our exports during the peace years will never be at the level they were during the war. And he points , nshed tatm prlc e« resulting from ft! > „il,i»mpn) mav . . , , > 8 "Will decrease in demand.

In this state the cost probably would run higher than their average for the whole area, In a bulletin called'"Capital Needed to Farm in the Midwest," the committee says that it will take $14,000 and more to buy the land. To this cost must be added from $4,000 to $8,000 for personal property. , The young man who wants to rent, and wants to furnish all the capital but the land should count on having from $4,000 to $8,000, The committee points out that part of the capital may be borrowed. But they warn that the proportion that can be borrowed is definitely limited. The loan should be small enough so that interest and principal payments can be made in unfavorable years In a few cases farmers have started farming with a 100-percent debt and succeeded in paying out. The committee feels, though, that the success came from a fortunate purchase, being favored with unusually good prices and weather conditions, above average ability, or sacrifice of family living standards. For the man with limited capital, renting a good farm is much better than buying land where the soil is poor, the committee states. A farm that is low in productivity may appear to be a bargain. But the buyer is likely to find such a farm is a bad bargain. The committee warns against impatience on the part of young farmers. They point out that a modest start as a hired man at today's wage levels may mean more progress in the long run than a too ambitious program at the beginning, Another alternative is to work out a partnership or business agreement with an older farmer. This kind of a set-up need not be limited to father son agreements. Young men who would like a more complete discussion of this important subject may write to the Bulletin Office at Iowa State College.

Vegetable ccedlings started under frames must be lifted and transplanted It is impossible to produce a strong vigorous plant unless it is given room in which to develop. In general, seedlings should not be taller than two inches for transplanting. Vegetable plants will stond tho shock of transplanting to the garden better If the roots are confined. When the seedlings are lifted, plant them in Individual containers if possible or use in dividual plant bands. Bands and all are transplanted to the garden later. One of tl)e most important operations in frame management is handling the ventilation. This is especially Important as the seedlings take hold and increase in size. If the frames are left closed with little or no ventilation, fast growth will take place but the growth will be soft. The right amount of ventilation will produce stocky and sturdy plants. Judgment must be used in giving the right amount of ventilation, which Is needed especially on bright, sunny days. H. S.
