Farmers are becoming wary, a United Press survey showed. Many recall how thc bottom dropped from beneath farm prices after World War I, and they fear the same thing could happen again. But most of the farmers interviewed said their main reason for cutting down on the fattening of livestock is the sky-high price of corn. Most animals are fattened on corn, and the crop failure caused by last year's spring floods put a serious crimp in livestock feeding. The Department of Agriculture reported that the number of cattle being fed for market Jan. 1 was the smallest since 1040. The department estimated the number on feed thc first of the year at 3,774,000 head, a 12 per cent reduction from last year's 4,307,000.

U.R--Illinois Democratic leaders want their party to give its candidates "grass roots" support by setting up complete tickets for county offices wherever possible. Adlai Stevenson, endorsed candidate for governor, asked state com- mittccmcn and county chairmen at a meeting in Springfield yesterday to organize county tickets. Local interest will have to be stirred up to get out a big enough vote to insure defeat of the Republicans, he said. Paul Douglas, endorsed candidate for senator, told the meeting cratic party.

The condition of Miss Pemberton continues to remain critical. , supply would fail to keep pace with consumer demand. The meat institute estimated last year's per capita meat consumption at 156 pounds, and predicted that this year each consumer would have to get along on 12 pounds less. II. M. Conway. market analyst for the National Livestock Producers association, estimated that the total cattle population this year is 3,000,000 less than it was a year ago. All these estimates mean that the housewife will find less meat at the butcher's counter, and she may have to pay even higher prices for it. There will be more meat than Americans were accustomed to eating before the war, but not enough to satisfy the present heavy demand.

Rennel is thc original grapefruit juice recipe for taking oil-ugly fat. It's simple. Just go to your drugekt and ask for 4 ounces of liquid Rennel. Pour the contents into a pint bottle--add enough graoefrutt juice to fill the bottle. Then ta.1e just two tablespoonMs a day. That's all there is to it. If the very first bottle doesn t show you the simple, easy way to lose bulky tat and help regain slender, more graceful curves--if reducible pounds and inches of excess fat don't .just seem to disappear almost like magic from neck, chin, arms, bust, abdomen, hips, calves and ankles; just return the empty bottle to the manufacturer for your money back. You need never know a hungry moment while taking Rennel--no starvation diet--no printed diet list to buy --no vitamins to fortify you against weakness while going hungry, for y°» WON'T be hungry. Don't be switched to another product. Insist on and obtain genuine Rennel.
