With regard to the situation in ihe field of chicken raising, a release from the American Poultry Industries says thai farmers surveyed are planning fo buy Only four Chicks in 1948 for every five they bought last year, as some producers have the impression the government will 'not sUppor ihe price market. The cost of feed prices is also going to have a on ihe number of chicks raised, the Industries siaiemeni says. Anyway, the net result will probably be that by next"* fall there will be at least a 7 percent drop in total chickens, and there will be fewer eggs. while Iowa farmers are re« ported to have taken "paper loss" of about 154 million dollars on the basis of the drop in commodity prices, they have not lost that sum in comiJarlflojii wi peak ftfftei "".
