(EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the second of a scries on plans of the government to use land to be bought and retired from agricultural production.") By STEPHEN McDONOUOH. Associated Fress Staff Writer. WASHINGTON, March 7. UP-In attacking the problem of land use the government faces difficulties which have been accumulating for more than 100 years, for land abandonment began in the east when western lands were thrown open to settlement At least six considerations must be kept in mind as the program is mapped out. First of all, the impoverished condition of Itousaad* oi farm families must be imprwfd. Must Cut Surpluses. ' After this comes the BNftsjr ci j eastern cities. eliminating farm surpluses p«ccm- j: nently, which will inwlre gether under the only comprehensive plan thus far suggested--a study made by President Roosevelt's committee on wild life restoration and chiefly by J. N. Darling of Des Moines, a member of the committee. This combination of reforestation on selected parts of the acreage and game management on the remainder "gives a more immediate and higher rate of economic return, and an equally efficient if not more rapid basis for remedial treatment of the soil," the committee declares.

They have set up the requirements for a co-ordinated land program. These are: Bettering the living conditions of the people on areas Bought; guaranteeing more efficient use of schools and churches; assuring the people of a steady, even though small, income; provision ot constructive work in small industries which have a ready market, and sett supporting and self liquidating use of the 'And vacated. Some of these ideas "may sound radical" says L. C.
