Hyde. "Land resour- DS must be luore efficiently used, and we do not bcore high iu this particular," says Secretary Hyde. "Our national heritage covers 1,903,000,000 acres, 01 which alxmt 505,000,000 acres are impioved farm lands," he shows. "Duly about 350,000,000 acres are actu illy producing crops. But this acrearo often gives us burdensome burplusefe, and moreover, its o u t p u t could be greatly increased by intensive cultivation. "The over expansion oE agriculture iij an important contributing cause of agricultural d stre.v*. Inferior land should not be brought under the plow. Millions o£ acres are now being farmed from v hich there can bo no hope for a profit, yet they assist in the creation '£ a surplus problem.

A condition «.lso exiats In the air- nia 1 wervice which cannot be corrected until mail rates undergo thorough revision according to the pec (master general. "In our judgment, Iho method of determining th« compensation of air mall contractors muet be revolution- ised, The syetwn oC paying by the regardle/ss 1 of distance traveled is manifestly unsound," ho said, Brown cited examples oE the disparity "between the compensation pale various contiuctors. The jates from Boston to New York, he eald, is $3 per pound; New Yoik to Chicago, 86 cents per pound; Chicago to Salt .Lake City, ti.85 per pound; Salt Lako City to Los Angeles, $3 and iro-m Cleveland to Pittsburg, $3 p«r pound Contractors on pioeporous routes have naturally prospered, Brown taid, while those on routes where mail flows in a small volume have rfiiftered heavy losses. An amendment already has been drawn up by the Postofflee Department to correct theee discrepancies 3n rates. A vote on the measure is expected in the next Congrees, The amendment, in brief, the Postmaster General to contract for air mail between cities at fixed rates p-i' mite for definite weight spaces, rather than paying by the pound re- of distance traveled. Thetse changes, in Brown'a opinion, would render a double service -- give immediate aid to the lines In distress, and greatly iucr-etuie the air ninil service to the public by permitting dispatch by mail on regularly scheduled p ibsengor fligliitf.'
