THR DAILY OOT7RTTCR. rONNFJXSVTIXE. PA. VVEDNESDAY, MARCH 1, 1933. CHASMS SEEKING Members ol laylon TO AID FARMERS DRIVE HARRISBURG, Mar. 1.--Cash income ot Pennsylvania farmers to.ta is nearly S(jO,000,000 less than it was Seoul Troop Named PERRYOPOLIS, Mat. 1 --Members ol the newly oigaiwed Boy Scout troop at Lay ton weie named after the meeting held _ in_ the Loytori Methodist Episcopal-Churchr.TM They include Paul Farrow, Dwame Rough, Clyde Knight, Walter Hudson, 10 yoais ago, according to lepo'-ts issued by the State Department ol Ag. culture. Commenting on these figures,~th" Cha'n Store Committee for Pennsylvania Prosperity, announced that one of the chief objectives of its "Pennsylvania Days" campaign was to 'raise the income of farmers.' "By promoting consumption ot Pennsylvania products," the commi*- tcc spokesman said, "we expect to increase the demand for them. This will not only boost the farmers' cash income but will stabilize agriculture throughout the' state " Latest statistics put Pennsylvania farm cash income for 1938 at $244,311,000. Ten years ago, although no exactly comparable figures are available because of changes in the methods of keeping records, the farm income was reckoned at more than £300,000,000. Althou. h regarded primarily as an Industrial state, Pennsylvania is an important agriculture producer, it was pointed out. The cash income of Pennsylvania terms for 1038 gave the state 10th place among agricultural states of the nation. The reputation ot the Pennsylvania Dutch lor thrifty and efficient farming is credited to a laige degree with maintaining the production of farm products in the Keystone State. Known from Revolutionary days as farmers who scientifically cared for their lands, the Pennsylvania Dutch farmers have a monument to themselves in the green fields of the State, unscarred by the eros.on that plagues less careful farmers. Also contributing to the production rate is the rich fertility of the soil. Lancaster county, for instance, is acknowledged by agricultural experts as tho "richest general farming country in the world." Today, 800,000 persons are employed on 200,000 PennsyH-ania farms, which are valued at one billion dollars. The State produces more buckwheat and eggs than any other state in the union. Two billion quarts of milk were sold by Pennsylvania farmers, last year, and they realized $103,000,000 on the sales. Livestock brings annual receipts ot $170 000,000 to Pennsylvania farmers. Cattle and calves average about $82,000,000. Other livestock values in the state include horses and colts, S43.000.000 swine and pigs, $8,400,000; mules, 88,500,000; and sheep and lambs, $2,500,000. Pennsylvania farmers realize about $54,000,000 each year from the sale of poultry and eggs. Corn is by far the most important ot the crops in the Keystone State. In 1936, the yield was almost 55,000,000 bushels, with an estimated value of $55,118,000. Large yields are also registered in wheat (22,000,000, bushels), potatoes, (22,000,000 bushels), hay (3,300,000 tons), apples (9,338,000 bushels), grapes (15,700 tons, tobacco (32,690,000 pounds), and buckwheat (2,200,000 bushels).
