Tin: philosophy tliat what was iiood enough for i)aw is gocxl enough for'us'us has all but 'dis- upixxired. Science and iiu machine luive revolutionlzcil agriculture. .*;nd the rovolution is still going; on. In colonial days. Shaw said in a recent discussion, 9 jwrsons out 'of 10 luiii to work the land to provide, enough for themselves and the 10th. "Today," ho added, "one farm 'worker provides enough for himself and IS. others." In 1939.-U. S. farmers produced ".5 billion bushels of.corn from SS in I! lion acre.?, l.nst v'oar they produced 30 per cent more from only 80 million acres. •It took SO.5 million acres to produce "On million bushels of wheat in 1939. Last year 47 million acres produced 900" million bushels. It's' the same story for cotton and other crops, and for livestock, too. "For every ;wo eggs a he.n laid in 19-10. her descendant is laying- throe today." Shaw said. In genera!, "we've been producing up to -!2 per. cent more farm ronmiorihies on virtually, the snme farm acreage." And with smaller manpower. "In World War I wo produced our farm ctnii modi ties with 13.5 million workers. . . today there are i-niy eight million farm workers." Shaw, administrator of the de- partrnent's agricultural research service, gave much, of the credit to the country's 12,000 state am! federal form research and educational workers. He gave credit also !o> "new machines of all kinds that do the hard farm jobs faster and better." There are nearly five million tractors on the farm. Nine out of JO farms are electrified. Better fertilizers n.'u! new chemic;d weed and insect killers arc helping 1 . So are hybrid and discase- resis'ant plant varieties. New products rind better m.-irkouns: of old ones filso are doing their bit, Shaw asserted that powdered Rock'n Roll Is Termed 'Tribalistic' HARTFORD.

'One of 'our newer products," he. added, "is orange juice powder that dissolves instantly, oven in ice water, to make a juice with the color, flavor, and nutritive value of fresh orange juice." The Army likes it so well it is iakinsr "the full output."
