CLOSER TIES BETWEEN FARMER AND CITY URGED AT ANNUAL COUNTY MEET Lesson Learned During 1 World TVar Should Be Put to Practice, Says Editor of Pennsylvania farmer. AGENT UIBEL MAKES REPORT By JOHN H. WHOIUC, Staff Cowesporldent. UNIQN'TOWN, March 14.--A. plea for closer ties be'ween the farmer and the city folks was made by Edward Bayard of Plttsburg, editor of the Pennsylvania Farmer, who Thursday afternoon delivered the address at tlie banquet at th A f b u r y Methodist Kpia- c.opal Church which brought to a close the 1-Hh annual meeting of the Fayelte Cotinty Agricultural Extension Association. The d i n n e r , attended by more than 200 persoirs, i n c l u d i n g those from tho farm and cities followed the business "lesslon. during the forenoon at the county building where reports were Tendered and discussions) on various farm topics were in progress. Declaring that the World War t a u g h t a preat let son to the people of the United tales, .Mr. Bayard said that this spirit ot union, exercised during cases of emergency, should be exercised at all times. Congratulating thoso who assembled for the dinner, Mr. Bayard said that ii 1s a very good policy for the city folks and the farmers to get together. "Humanity learns its lesson slowly," ho said. "It took us tiulto a lomr time to learn many things a.nd this lesson of getting together Is i jutrt beginning. The old way between tho classes was tor one to get the better ot the othsr. However, today, there is an appreciation and interest in the ·wsMare ol one in each, other. it la a sure sign that the world is getting better. When wo get to thinking that tht» world is getting worse, it Is a sure- sign that we are growing old. "Wo bavo cached a generation that JK trying to be fair. Just view the considwration of the employer for employe and the spirit of co6peratlon today. There are many other similar examples. However, tho city folks do not know how hard it la to earn a livelihood on the farm and the farmer does not know the trials and tribulation* of the resident ol the city. We dou't understand ench olber. However with such meetings as this we become closer together and learn- to understand tlw problem* of our neighbor. Most ot tho trouble In the world today is attributed to misunderstanding. The more we mingle and meet together* the closer we come to unlver- ,»al peace. *We bave to be good citizens, each othoT's respect, to get anywhere. Wo cannot bo neglectful of our public duties. We must bo good citizens. We must be optimists. Wa must believe in the future and in eaoh other. We must believe in our business, our community, our state and our; nation. "During tho World War we learned that we had one purpose--our country. Why not tho sumo purpose n o w ? Wo depend on each other and w i l l unito In case £ emergency. Why can't we bo broadmiuded enough to unit** now?" At this point, Mr. Bayard cited an example rf how hodt and mouth t!ls- euito slopped' a luss Industry. Continuing ho pointed out how the price o£ labor has iv decided influence on the cost of production and de- tenains whether tho business man will be able to cope with others. Mr. Bayard declared that there should be a redevelopment of agriculture, Baying that in nunrher of instances manufacturing concerns have been forced to seek other locations because of the high cost of foodstuffs' "When any movement is started for the redevelopment ol" agriculture, tho business men should get behind *it because the price of food has been the direct cause of several i n d u s t r i a l concerns leaving communities. Almost every county in Pennsylvania has ·sufficient farms .to bring many good m a n u f a c t u r i n g concerns. We must redevelop agriculture for the- good of all." The speaker p o i n t e d out t h a t agriculture i» P e n n s y l v a n i a , is a very largo enterprise. "Xu other i n d u s t r y In tho State can pay off its funded indebtedness w i t h a f r a c t i o n of one part of Its livestock or equipment excepting agriculture," he said. There a-re -o per cent of .the (arms lu the ""State mortgaged, lie said. However be declared that the f a r m i n g business is solvent. Mr. Bayard said t l . a t tlut (armors were the last of a gn-at class of pen- isenUal to the development of a community." Reviewing the farms of the county, he cited the 1920 cem us which showed that there were approximately 3,000 farms «nd that the i n v e s t m e n t in the buildings and land represented an outlay oJ approximately $24,000,000. He declared however that agriculture was not considered a major business be- cnuse it is divided into so many ploces. Ho pointed out that the livestock on the farms is valued at $2,171,000 arid that the total moneys in land, buildings, livestock and equipment, such as machinery, would aggregate nearly $30,0')0,000, The returns in crops, milk and other butt or,, eggs, wool, products from the farm total about $:J,0'0,000 each year, he said. Mr. EtMnger added that, the statistical survey which i i bning made ai this titn-e should lay tue foundation for the rexievolpmeiut of K*ayot.te county agriculture. Wallace Miller of Uiviontown, census supervisor fo" the Fayette- Somerset district made a plea to the farmers to lend their coftperatlon in securing all data for the compilation which Is to begin A n r i l 1. He said that while there aire approximately »,800 farms in the county, he has been able to secure but 1QO namea. C. D. Ulbel of Umoii'town, county garni agent, served ii the role of toastmaster. The K i w a n t s Club of Unlontown met With the farmers tor the dinner. ·Walter P. Schenck, -secretary of tho Unlontowu ChaiuDer f Cotnerce, also spoke. During the forenoon, Miss Madge Bogart, director of home economics extension department. State College, gave a very interesting talk to the women. President Isaiah Cover served at the ihead of the meeting. After his opening talk, the secretai y's report was given by Q. M. Griffin and Albert Gaddis submitted the report of the treasurer. George W. Hibbs, president of the board of county comm:sslouers, spoke on the matter of assessment of farm property in the count*. He pointed out that this is not made by the commissioners but by 56' a isessors in tho cities and townships of the county and that the commissioner!- must use the results of these assessments. Harold Arnold, In hi;, report at the business session in the morning, emphasized the fact 'hat no tarm could bo operated suc essfully without keeping accurate accounts. He also pointed out the importance at discarding those crops which fail to show a profit and substituting something else. Bee- culture is a new development in the agricultural projects, Mrs. Mary E. Dunn explained the work ot the first beo club whit h was organized with nine meirtberi. On an average each hive produced 40 pounds of extract of honey whi'h was bottled in uniform containers of 13 ounces each and sold for 30 tenta per con- gainer. · ' Lawrence Stark spoke of junior club work in the coumy and of the benefits he had derived through an understanding and appreciation ot the farm jjroblems. ·Paul Davis submitted a re-port on a special drainage projec ts conducted with tho farm agent dm ing tho year. Four hundred yards ot ground were drained in seven hours through constructing a ditch three feet wide at the bottom and six to feet at pie who own and op,jrat.» t h e i r « w » i 2 o ',-*iUs per q u a r t buBluw*. lec»arli,K Out they wore in ( ; fc| , e . xpe Vs.' better circumstances t h a n many of . . tU» emaller t a w l n e a * ;m-erus i n ine " - ' " better the smaller bUdlneHs, N'ation today.
