Taking up the loss of markets, the speaker said lack of uniformity of staple had much to do with the drop In exports. He suggested a cotton program of better quality staple, a neater package through use of cotton bagging and greater use of cottonseed byproducts through livestock as aids to income, He presented the statistics on the improvements resulting from competition in the 'ono-variety community" contests. W. J. Greene of the Farm Security Administration In Dallas was the second speaker and had as a topic "Meeting Changing Conditions In Farming" Among the changes enumerated by the speaker were loss of foreign and domestic markets, lowered Incomes, rapid development of substitutes for farm products, loss of soil and fertility, Increased farm mechanization and Its resulting problems, and changed credit conditions. In offering possible solutions of the troubles,' Mr. Greene suggested farmers should raise only marketable products In -quantities needed, and the adoption of the recognized balanced program of farming which "included llvinj at home, better soil and water conservation, and establishment of greater varieties of farm Income through production of livestock, poultry, and dairy products. He also suggested possible Income from pulp wood, and other farm crops. He then outlined the efforts of his organization In aiding tenant farmers after asserting this was one of the principal problems to be solved In agriculture—the increasing number of tenant farmers rather than land owners. Trench Silos. The concluding speaker of the morning session was E. R. Eudaly dairy specialist for the extension service of Texas A', and M. College, who talked on "Importance of Trench Silos In Sound Farm- Ing." Discussing present conditions, Mr. Eudaly said they wore nothing new, but there were a few things that could be done about the business. Taking up some of the suggested means of augmenting farm Incomes, the speaker went over the list of hindrances to such a program and some of the complaints Usually registered in connection with them.. He stated the only way livestock and poultry and products could be marketed and income Increased was through the lowering of the cost of production. He declared that grass was the creapest and handiest feed : for livestock, because It was especially rich In water content, protein, lime and phosphorus anu also vitamin A. He urged that some of the good land diverted from cultivation under the present, program be devoted to tho creation of permanent pastures asserting a greater income would come from such pastures than from crops. Much Peed Lost. As 'Feed insurance" and as auxiliary supplies when grass was not available, Mr. Eudaly proposed trench silos as the most economical and safest .means of having a perpetual feed supply, He declared more feed was lost in Navarro county each year through Improper methods of keeping than was fed to stock or used. He Insisted trench silos had been In use more than 4,000 years and they were not now—"Just new to us"; he asserted they could be easily constructed and would work on any type of soil and under any conditions. Ajnong the speakers scheduled at the afternoon session were George McCarthy, poultry sped: 1- 1st and Miss Jennie Camp, food specialist, both of the extension service. An inspection trip to the Walker Frozen Food plant was scheduled to complete the session Thursday afternoon.
